This is an impressive and important stance that our young people are taking against the intolerable corruption and racism within our police force. I applaud them!

What a joke. They are just trying to draw attention and should have been held in Jail. I'm sure if 5 white people went to A&T University and tried to take over a meeting it would have been total racism. The City of Greensboro needs to stop bending over backwards to a certain race of people and stop Super Jams and the A&T homecoming at the tax payers expense. Want to cut taxes there is a start. Let the University foot the bill.

Oh how far we've drifted from civil protest. Sitting politely and quietly at a public lunch counter is civil. Taking the seat of an elected official at a city council meeting and banging a gavel is rude and ridiculous. There are ample opportunities to speak at council meetings, yet these people decided on a more asinine approach. Their obscure reasoning is drowned by their tactics. It reminds me of Senade O'Connor tearing up the Pope's picture and yelling, "Fight the real enemy." No one knew what the hell she was trying to say, and it was simply offensive. The message was lost because the messenger didn't think about public perception.

Really? If this were about the police department's "intolerable corruption and racism", they needed to walk across the plaza and sit down in Chief Bellamy's office. You know Chief Bellamy... the black guy that runs the police department. Seems to me they picked the wrong venue for their little protest.

Your comments are ignorant, anti-social, and really no help at all. You contribute nothing to the conversation. I've read your comments on other threads as well. You are either very angry, synical about your position in life, or extremely unhappy. I feel sorry for you.

You have GOT to be a lonely person. Whenever I come on here, I see your post of stupid rants and subtle lil comments about anybody thats not white. Do everyone a favor and take your self to the nearest "ghetto" and speak these things in PERSON, and not over the internet. You hide behind your computer because you are a coward and you know your to weak to say these things in person. You are every bit of the word pathetic.
