Your racist attacks using liberal inspired hateful talking points is destructive.
You are a filthy unAmerican POS, with hatred in your heart.
Well gee son. Shouldn't you be back in israel protecting your homeland for a change?

Finally we get the truth from Spokane.
Shorty was an 88-year old crack dealer who was victimizing those two young Trayvons and deserved what he got.
At least, that is the defense offered by Trayvon #1.
"John Galt"
The thugs defense offered that and the thugs dad, he thinks, said that the 88 year old sold him crack. The dad should know he spent 5 years in the can for dealing in crack.

A town official in Maine was visited by the Secret Service Tuesday after posting a message to Facebook referring to President Barack Obama with a racial slur and calling for him to be shot, the Portland Press Herald reported.

David Marsters, a retired Massachusetts police officer and a candidate for selectman in Sabattus, Maine, posted a photo of Obama along with a link to a story about a Republican push to impeach the president at 8:17 p.m. Friday, writing "Shoot the N****r" above it, according to the newspaper.

Marsters told the Press Herald that after his Facebook post was flagged to local law enforcement by other residents, he was visited by both the Secret Service and the CIA. He said he told the Secret Service agents who questioned him that he didn't intend to threaten the president.

Because it doesn't fit into her mission. There is a wealth of information on the theories of Booker T. Washington and the differences in philosophy between him and W.E.B. Dubois.
She might not make such a damn fool of herself if she ever read any books on the subject rather than pick out a quote to serve her interest.
Are you and sonic frikkin' kidding me??

Booker T. Washington said, "I learned the lesson that great men cultivate love, and that only little men cherish a spirit of hatred..."

What the hell do either of you think Jackson's and Sharpton's "Grievance Industry" is all about? They are precisely the kind of "little men" Washington was talking about!

And what about the entire NAACP labeling anyone who wants less government and more accountability racists?? Is that "cultivating love" the way Washington meant??

And as for Washington admonishing the "strong giving to the weak"...who do you think gave the most to charity? Bush or Obama/Biden? The first time Obama's and Biden's tax returns were released, their charitable contributions were embarrassing.

So give me a friggin' break - both of you.

<quoted text>Perpetrator or victim Guess we just need fewer whites to make the statistics more comparable. You know, that the current American population five and younger is 50% Hispanic?
Those were arrest numbers per 100,000 of population.

Five and younger? 50% Hispanic? It won't change the national stats. Hispanics mostly rape family members and the crime goes unreported. The definition of an Hispanic virgin is a girl who learns how to outrun her father and brothers before the fifth grade.

They wouldn't fire into an occupied school but hitting the terrorist at a social event like a wedding is likely fair game to the Israelis.

Should the gun rights of felons also be restored?
why shouldn't they be? of course. There are many types of felonies that don't include guns. What can one repay their debt to society? they go to jail, and yet...no debt paid. They are forced to pay to be on probation, and yet...no debt paid. They are forced to pay fines, and yet...no debt paid. When according to law can anyone ever pay their debt to society?

Great place. Down to Earth people. Drink a lot of whiskey, though.

I don't recall ever seeing anything like a rebel flag there. So, what changed in Pennsylvania to make people like them start flying a rebel flag?
