"During an appearance on MSNBC on Tuesday, Del. Eleanor Holmes Norton (D-DC) questioned why so many of the elected officials in Ferguson, Mo. are white, deeming leadership’s racial make up to be “troublesome.”"
More race-baiting from the Left.

This will increase to a shrill in the weeks to come.

What would happen if, say, white citizens demanded more representation on some Urban Trash Yard City Council like Detroit with the underlying assumption being that we can't trust blacks after so many municipal bankruptcies under black political control??

The black racism BS is way out of control now that we've got a half-black azzhole in the White House.

Another 'First': racially motivated autopsies.
An alien autopsy would present more factual truths than this attempt of Obama's to invent the scenario he "prefers".

What had been shaping up as one of this year's most bitterly contested primaries came and went with barely a ripple on Tuesday as Wyoming U.S. Sen. Mike Enzi soundly beat four little-known Republican challengers in his pursuit of a fourth term.

Last summer, former Vice President Dick Cheney's elder daughter, Liz Cheney, launched what widely was expected to be a formidable primary challenge for Enzi, a fellow Republican.

Ultimately, the Fox News commentator and former State Department official found little mainstream support in the sparsely populated state to which she and her family moved in 2012. She dropped out in January, citing family health issues.

That would be racially insensitive. The underlying assumption here would be that blacks don't bathe, especially rioting blacks. Hitting them with a Water Canon would be insulting to them.

<quoted text>I was witness to the cops shooting a guy who was robbing a bank when I was 19. They shot him three times and he was still running faster than I'd ever seen any human run; his legs were a blur. On the news the next day the reporter said he was high on crack and they suspect that was what kept him on his feet, that, mixed with adrenaline was a powerful brew.
It probably took more lead to take Michael down because of his large girth; sometimes bullets lodge in fat/blubber and never make it to a vital organ or major artery. A little something to consider if you're ever assaulted by an immense person. I'd go for the neck or head first if all I had was a small caliber weapon. Or a knee. Fat people go down fast with only one leg to stand on.
The bigger they come, the harder they fall.

I wonder ,how many Fast Food meals made up that dead weight?

How about we start looking a little more closely at some of the backgrounds and upbringings of these young black victims? And start in Chicago.
There's a reason why so many of these young black men have such a high disregard for authority, life and property and have such big chips on their shoulders.
It's not just about being poor and disadvantaged. Many white young men are too but aren't killing each other in the streets and winding up dead by either the authorities or each other.
There's a major breakdown somewhere in these black young men's lives. Maybe we should asking what it is.
"Maybe we should (be) asking what it is."

Two possible results when this is attempted.

1.) It's white society's fault

2.) If you disagree with #1, you are a racist and are insensitive to the plight of poor blacks.

God Luck.

Every store owner in Ferguson should be issued free rubber bullets.

If things don't get better then they should be issued free Rock Salt Ammunition.

If things STILL don't get better then all Welfare Checks should be stopped to Ferguson, MO

Extreme problems demand extreme measures.

I divide those that post racial slurs along with those that defend them and those that can actually post without the use of racial slurs.
Are you now defending the use of racial slurs?
Race has everything to do about the uproar in Ferguson & it goes toward the history of that area. If an armed black man shot & killed an unarmed white kid claiming self defense, what would happen? Would the shooter be in jail??? Would they be trying the white kid in the public eye or would you be looking at the shooter.
Shooting unarmed people by police should demand scrutiny. Where is the policeman? Did he get drug tested? What kind of scrutiny did he get?
This is why people are upset. They see it as just another gunned down black kid & a so what from the authorities. They see the body lying in the street for hours. They see no ambulance - and no the policeman is not a doctor & should not be making medical decisions.
People see that disrespect.,
Sometime you need to climb down off the right whiner horse & see something from the other side's perspective.

...and the sad part of it all is that millions are probably doubting Eric Racist Holder's integrity regarding a third autopsy. Can America's present racist AG be trusted to come clean or will he somehow try "fixing" the autopsy results to find what he wants to find?

We are in dark territory, folks.
