All the heros for people in Lamar County are dead. They have to be white and join the military and then get killed and thats how they become heros. Maybe thats why you all are so fugged up.

I wonder, does this have anything to do with the Sgt Jay M. Hoskins memorial highway naming? FWIW if a black soldier from Paris were killed I would be welcoming his body home the same manner I did for Sgt Hoskins.

No it's not about any highway. Hadn't heard about that but it would add to my point. Didn't he do anything to deserve a highway before he died? Are you claiming only white soldiers from Paris have gotten killed? Thats amazing that through 100s of years of wars, black people never got killed. Amazing.

You will never be a hero to anyone, dead or alive. All you will ever be is a stupid, racist loser who lives off the government.

Yeah, shame on Brandon McClelland to force his friends to run over him like that. Had he been killed fighting strangers who hadn't done anything to him, he'd be laying in the cemetary a hero like the Confederate soldiers.

No I'm not claiming that only white soldiers from Paris were killed. You just puled that one out your butt.

I haven't heard of a black soldier from Paris being killed and his body returned for burial either. Perhaps that has happened but I have not heard about it. If it were to happen in the future and arrangements made similar to what was done for Sgt Hoskins then yes I would participate in the welcoming home. Unlike you, to me the soldier's skin color does not matter, they serve our country and are all "heroes". If they die serving our country and the family gives permission they all deserve a homecoming like Sgt Hoskins got.

jim blackwell wants all white people to be heros. the blacks want racism to live on because they can make money from it. look at jesse and al. they write to a company and say send me a contribution or you will be called racist. stupid whites think thats the worst thing so they send the money. now it happening here with this diversity issue.

You have your opinion and I have mine. My opinion is dying doesn't make a person a hero no matter what race they are. Why do they get a "homecoming" only if they die? Didn't they "serve" the country if they managed to come home alive?

Jay died so that idiots like you have freedom of speech. If Brandon had died the same way he would get the same honor, but you can't see anything but skin color and that's why you are so f'd up

Interesting conversation.

I will give this to Jim Crow...in his (or her) own jarring way, JC is making a commentary about how we view soldiers.

I suggest folks read Kipling's poem "Tommy" to get a feel for what (I think) JC is commenting on.

And I think Kipling hit the nail right on the head then, and I think it still stands as a valid observation.

Its the whites claiming they need diversity classes. Black people don't have to be trained not to be racist.

Perhaps I didn't make myself clear. I think any soldier is a hero simply because they served. I think the police, fire and other first responders are heroes. They collectively put their lives on the line on a daily basis for us in one way or another. Sure there are those that are bad apples and think they are above the law because they wear a uniform/badge, but you don't throw out the baby with the bath water. They are all heroes - living or dead.

That is really a joke coming from you. You are just as racist as you claim all whites are.

In that case, somebody lied to him. Somebody should have told him that I was speaking freely long before he joined the military. Bush claimed he sent him over there to find weapons of mass destruction. The dead don't see or feel. Giving one dead man a parade and attacking the other doesnt make any difference to either of them. They're both in the same shape, one no better than the other.

If simply wearing a badge makes them a hero, the bad apples are heros too. I don't agree that having a certain job makes a person a hero. I have higher standards than that.
