Sides? WTF? How about letting the system work, like it does everyday in this country? There are no sides, only the truth. Sides? What is the point?

Why is the media not reporting on the dillon taylor case?????? He was a 20 year old white man that was shot and killed by a black cop in salt lake city....witness say he was unarmed also.....so why are we not hearing about this case as much as the brown shooting???? Looks like the media is racist as well....

The good news is... you are no longer oppressed and can live a productive life by working a job and climbing to the top just like anyone else, no matter what color you are! Your ancestors suffered greatly, so did mine ( I'm a Native American) a LOT of my ancestors were tortured and murdered. I didn't live in that time (thankfully) and thankfully you don't either! It's time to move forward and be the best you can be and not think you deserve special treatment for what your ancestors endured. They aren't you, mine aren't me. They would want your attention on succeeding not dwelling.
I'm sure that you have read your ancestors history and know that they actually sold your people to be slaves to the white man. If you can forgive that... and forget it, there is nothing that you can't accomplish.
No no no. Anytime someone wants to talk about the current state of Native Americans (lets be honest yall are in sad shape as well and have been DISMANTLED from the people yall once were) or Blacks we have to establish the history that this country has made in dealing with them.

If you want to say "get up and improve" then fine. But if you're mentioning the shortcomings of either race, then we also have to address the things that happened that caused these shortcomings. And America's treatment of blacks caused what they see today.And that "they sold their brothers into slavery" spiel isnt going to work here. I havent advocated special treatment. What I brought up is that AMERICA is responsible for the modern day black community. Quit trying to wash your hands of them...

Think of it like this, if I abuse a child during its first 4 years, will that child's growth not be stunted? Will he not be behind others children that didnt face that abuse? Without waiting for you to answer I can say, EXACTLY MY POINT....

When a person gets shot by a cop n that person is unarmed the cop should b charged with murder regardless of the situation. If I shoot someone protecting my property n that person is armed or not I'd go to jail

I side with know one until ALL THE FACTS come out

I 100% disagree with the Blacks protest bceasue of you Dems want TRUE EQUALITY then to actually BE EQUAL KNOW ONE SHOULD SIDE YET..

Bottom line is if the kid was in the Wrong and beat on the officer and came back with raised hand for another cop thrashing the he got what he got

If the Cop was all in the wrong then HE should be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law..

BUT NONE of us know all the facts so to judge and condemn before due process is fundamentally WRONG...

So Michael Brown strong armed a box of cigars from a store and bullied and intimidated a small store clerk because his great great grandfather was a slave? He then preceded to walk down the middle of a busy street impeding traffic because the man is prejudiced against him? He then assaulted the officer, grappled with his weapon and then taunted the officer because (the man) is a racist? I hate to say it but that just doesn't fly, some police officers can be total sadist, some are downright dirty and corrupt, but a majority are decent human beings.

When a police officer says anything to me , I answer yes sir and no sir, why, because I'm no idiot. Assaulting an officer and grappling with his weapon is a sure way to get gunned down and it's a tragedy that this young man was killed, and maybe it wasn't justified I wasn't there.

The U.S. needs to get over this "Race-thing". There's good People of every Race and there's bad People of every Race.
It's not the color of One's skin that matters, it's what kind of Person they are...THAT's what's important!

So, GET OVER IT, AMERICANS!

You're not addressing anything I say. AGAIN, how can 400 years of oppression be forgotten? Why wouldnt 400years of oppression not have an affect on ANY race or group?
I grew up around plenty of white people. Played ball with them and hung out with them personally. I have no problem with white people. But when it comes to race relations alot of you play dumb. You dont want to address the 400 years of oppression that blacks went thru. You just say "get over it and pretend it didnt happen". I dont think thats fair. Thats without mentioning the Native Americans that got shat on too. "Just get over it" isnt fair compensation for what happened. AT LEAST address what happened head on and see what remedies you can take to improve the situation. And not specifically YOU but YOU as in society. Instead society whats to pretend that we're not living on stolen land and that it didnt steal Africans from Africa bring them over here and continuously oppress them for up to 400 years.
Where are the irish enslaved by Africans? this is the first I heard of it.


White men did NOT go to Africa and hunt your ancestors down and take them to America or Europe and use them as slaves. Please tell me that you know your own people's history. Africans sold their OWN people to the white Europeans. Google it sir/ma'am. Africans also sold Native Americans as well.

You should read white cargo, you would get a different aspect as to slavery in early colonial America, to some degree that is. The transatlantic slave trade was appalling, I agree, and yes there would be a certain amount of negative cultural determinism directly relevant to it, but the question is how long can that be used to excuse criminal behavior today? Just how does looting,rioting and burning down ones own neighborhood have anything to do with seeking justice?

How long? Well the oppression lasted 400 years. How long do you think that would affect a society? You think the oppression stops and things just go back to normal at the snap of a finger? Or do they have to BUILD towards going back to normal?

Now go look at Rosewood and Blackwallstreet and tell me the justice in that...

Why didn't the black community take the protest straight to the steps of the police department itself and demand an answer and full detailed report? Burning down a quicktrip where the employees are not white somehow teaches (the man) a lesson? Also a dead black man is a dead black man regardless of who kills him , and how do you marginalize an overwhelming amount of blacks slaughtered every year by other blacks and only accentuate white on black homicides perpetrated by police officers?
I actually wondered the same. But the looters were separate from the peaceful protests from what I read. Then again, Im not there. Either way, I dont think looting does any good at all.

Now let me tell you the difference from a black "thug" killing another black and a white police officer killing a black. Now one, we cannot expect to behave correctly. We do not pay that "one" to serve and protect us. But that white police officer? Yea we can expect good behavior from him or her. Our taxes go to propping up their lives so of course, we should expect some decency from them. Thugs? Not so much. THATS the difference.

And the problem with alot of whites that bring up "black on black crime"is that people ARE discussing it. Do you think that people that live in these communities ENJOY living in crime filled cities? Do you think they ENJOY seeing their children walk outside to where they can catch a stray bullet from some gangsters squabbling over colors? OF COURSE NOT!! City halls have meetings where people are addressing the issues. There are marches and community activities that try to spur violence in the black community. The problem is the media isnt going to cover that because thats not what their constituents (for the most part) want to hear. They want a narrative that blacks are inferior and just are up to no good. But that same media will not address the systematic practices that have led to this condition. And thats not honest. If you want to know about media bias, just look up how a few companies own almost everything we see and buy. That will tell you something...

The media is controlled. Teach yourself something about your surroundings before speaking....

And thats the point. Cops are overstepping their boundaries. But instead of being on the side for JUSTICE, people are on the side of COLORS. That goes for both blacks and whites....

Yes the child that is abused will be stunted, but does the child's great great grandchildren also claim abuse for what happened to their great great grandfather? Slavery has existed for thousands of years in about every corner of the Earth, so everyone should be claiming the effects of slavery, if in fact that is what you're proposing. What's enigmatic is that slavery exist today in many parts of Africa, yet we are still being bombarded with the attempted guilt trip onto a generation that knows nothing about slavery, as a mitigating excuse for horrible behavior.
