Duh. If one believes in race one applies it to one's profession. The application of the myth called race is the act of racism.

Playing the race card is so over! Stop counting the number of a particular race in any given situation and simply count the total number of people. For example, you can say 85% of the prison population in the state of Arizona are white.(This is not an actual number but close I am sure.) When really the only number that counts is the total number of people incarcerated compared to, lets say, prison bed space. Point is we can not control nor does it matter what race anyone is in any given circumstance. Way to many contributing factors come into play, like, demographics. I'm starting to ramble. I think I have made my point.

I'm not sure that isn't private event. I know some law companies, who take exactly non racist way: - they are international and their lawyers and consultants are black-, yellow- and white skinned, Christians, Buddhists, Muslims too.

Yeah - plenty of racism in our legal system. And it's all affirmative action.

Hello Humanity,

We wanted to thank the Asian, Indian, African, European, Arab, Human people for stepping on our grass. It is the wash of the century. There appears to be a big line at the court about confused people filing large claims about the phone, language, loiterning, breaking and entering, other related matters.

It appears that some of the judges are confused as they are reading from a book. Our question to them was simple, was the book written by man? There are other books and alternative ways of living. We thank all nations for understanding our concerns.

A few of the Human children expressed concern about why the Tribal people are able to do that so easily, they simply live by the law of the jungle, a different book of sorts.

Have a good one,

Human Being

Did anyone read the article? What a load of crap- big city cops do not body slam someone for calling them a pig...

Also, you mo'rons ought to learn some history and face some realities. Whites are not so persecuted these days, white privilege still exists, and white discrimination is as bad as ever evidenced by these comments. Even w/ affirmative action, you ggenerally will have an advantage in this country and even in other countries...Things like affirmative action were made to counteract a long history of discrimination and blatantly evil govt programs like Cointelpro.
No doubt the media is protecting black criminals, by hiding their high crime rate. Only the global elite knows why certain things go on...but most of you coward hypocrite sheople will reap what you sow.
