Here's a question:

You say, "we really found that we have a wonderful community" so, why is there racial tension at all?

Or maybe a better question would be, "can you say D-E-N-I-A-L?"

No wonder the panel was disappointed with the agreement.
I haven't even heard it but, it sounds like Mickie D can't even see the huge elephant in his own room.

Usually, that's a sign of being a part of the problem, which makes it easier to avoid the solution.

Racism is an old, strong and sinister spirit of division and denial.
It has been one of the biggest reason all of God's Children harbor secret and hidden hate, for their fellow living souls.

This makes for good headlines of course; since there's nothing more interesting than watching human beings treat each other like they're not...well, like they're not living, breathing human beings.

But That is the mad, mad, mad, mad, mad, mad world we live in people and it is very contagious, if you're not careful.
The worst of children in every culture is the evidence of that culture's sickness.
Oh, the spiritual insanity of it all!!
Exorcists anyone?
Or maybe a little medication?

Or, perhaps just a little more social education, to gently unlearn being afraid to say, "we've really been screwing things us because we've actually never learned how to treat people outside of our culture fairly, out of love and respect...but, we are willing to learn." (Yeah, that one will reeeeeally happen; right?)

Racism runs both ways. For members of Meachem Park to say all the tension and the murders of Sgt. McEntee and of the other two officers and other four city officials at City Hall are the fault of City Hall is egregiously racist.

The agreement should have contained a clause that stated , when you stop acting like animals , you will stop being treated like animals .. Why is crime so much higher in Meacham park than in Kirkwood itself ?? HMMMM , lets all meet in the jungle , OOPS sorry , Meacham Park for a group hug !!! Just watch out for ALL those racist white police , they might just protect someone ...

If the recent goings on in the county south of Saint Louis county are any indication, inadequate education and poverty seem to be the two real issues causing problems in BOTH areas.

I still don't understand why they need a "special agreement" that the rest of Kirkwood does not recieve?

Where's my special agreement?

I still say Kirkwood should dump Meachum Park and let them get thier own schools, police, and fire protecton.

Fewer than 5% of Meacham Park residents belong to Harriet Patton's group. Most of the people who attended this meeting do not live (or work) here in MP. The media should not present non-residents as residents nor should their opinions be considered representative of what residents think. Many of the people at Harriet's meeting were there to hear what was said, not because they agreed with what was being said. Why does everyone feel that they can speak for those of us who live here?

Because Meachem Park plays right into their agenda to stir trouble and paint everyone white as racist. Guess what, not all whites are racist. So why does everyone claim we are? Oh yeah, because they have an agenda.

Strident voices of protest always make good public theater for lazy reporting that would rather go with "if it bleeds, it leads." Sorry Fox 2, but how about less PC manipulation of split second sound bites and more in depth, comprehensive, comprehensible reporting that gets ALL the story?!!!

Im getting very tired of feeling sorry for the blacks, they ARE getting worse, areas that were ONCE decent, clean and safe, that are now full of blacks, are now all run down, why is that? The areas were NOT run down when WE simply handed it over to them?? What about BADEN?? The Germans had to get out cause of the blacks! I am through with blacks, no more. I am not giving anymore....They have ruined our shopping malls, they have ruined all of North County and St Charles. The don't build, they consume then destroy. I love all races, Hispanics, Germans, Laotions, Japanese, Chinese, Whites, Koreans, except, blacks..

Not all white people are as ignorant as these people, please know that. There are PLENTY of us that feel that things need to change and what we as white people have done is WRONG. It is very easy for these nimrods to blame black people for everything because then they don't have to take a long hard look in the mirror. For the idiot that listed all of the towns that are no good anymore because of blacks, please tell me what happend in:

Granite City
Crystal City
Jefferson County
Franklin County

Meth is the same as crack. The difference is white people aren't going to let their kids (from 14 to 64, no matter what the age) get a record. We all have one of those in our families that should be in jail but they aren't.

White people get a clue, it's time for us to quit blaming black people for everything!!!

Maybe if the schools black kids went to are equal to the ones white kids go to black kids could have the education necessary to have a fighting chance.

but it really doesn't matter what is written the racists are still going to find a reason to hate black people and that is all this is really about anyway!! To bad we can't help find solutions instead of turning our backs.

Blacks destroy neighborhoods, rob and steal anything they can, kill each other and are the majority race in the jail system.

You can keep that shit as far away from myself and my family as possible, thanks.
