I agree about White Water but how many youngsters were sent across the pond to fight in a war that we should not have invited ourselves to? How many of them were killed because of lies fed to us. I could go on but you get the picture. Peace.
I agree with you on that. At least the country has not turned on the Soliers fighting . Those of us who serced in vietnam can tell you about the reception we got

That is not the word I was referring to. Try again nephew. Why don't you go to the neighborhood racist and he will be happy to tell you what "n" word I am trying to get you to call me. At least you are a few brain cells smarter than that racist clown, lug-off.

My heart goes out to all of those guys that fought in that unpopular war. I am especially disturbed about all too many of those same Vets that are still paying the price. Much Peace to you my friend. Thanks,(I am sure gratitude for you Vets is far and few in between), for what you and your fellow soldiers have done for the cause of freedom. Much Peace to you my friend.

You want to call someone a childish name caller and in the same post accuse me of being a dang blue gum jabroni. You sound as if YOU would be someone that farts in the bathtub and then plays with the bubbles and sniffs the farts. Anyway thanks for the "dang blue gum" part. I am not black like you insinuate by your comment but coming from a racist like you I consider it a compliment.

No matter what he was doing , he deserves to be treated as a human being and treated with the same respect that we all want. God created us all in his image and we should be acting as if God is watching us, because he always is. I say he deserved more money than he got , because it seems he had to put up with a lot more than just being called the "N" word. By the way I am white and proud of it , just as he is black and should be proud of it !!!!!!!!!!

Uh, is it fair to say that if a "brother" called another "brother" an "N" word and he is offended, then can he sue for 2.5 million? Does it always have to be white people that can be sued or is that just a coincedence ??

I beleive that if he's the only person to come forward, then judgement to reward the brother with 2.5 million was the correct thing to do. Please don't forget that he still had courage to go forward in the mist of all of his troubles. Hopefully he's smart enough now to move from out of the south!

THEY SHOULD HAVE GIVEN HIM 100 MILLION, THINGS LIKE THIS HAPPENS EVERYDAY BUT SO MANY PEOPLE ARE AFRAID OF LOOSING THERE JOBS SO THEY SAY NOTHING.
PEOPLE NEED TO REALIZE WE ALL ARE THE SAME BLACK OR WHITE. BUT SOMETIMES I WONDER IF THE ONE'S USING RACIAL SLURS WERE IN A LIFE OR DEATH SITUATION AND NEEDED AN ORGAN DONAR WOULD IF MATTER THEN IF I WAS BLACK OR WHITE WOULD THEY FEEL LIKE A N---A WITH A N---A HEART OR KIDNEY,SINCE THAT'S WHAT THEY CALL US.
