Nope, but I can see why a racist such as yourself has to believe that.
I guess that explains why the mostly white school district in Dallas spent $60 million for a high school football stadium, while the mostly minority school district next door was literally falling down.
...and there are even more examples of the opposite being true. The govt. puts a black in the front of any line he wants even those who are undeserving. The racist acts of govt. have done more harm than good.....especially now that we have a disgusting racist president stinking up the WH. He is a pos man and so is his pig faced wife.

You are right! The media will not mention the race of the kids, but I bet they will use this tragedy to push for more gun control!
Absolutely! We should demand no more tolerance for this. These hooligans must be killed immediately. All gangs should be labeled as terrorists and shot on site.

I love the way you downplay Affirmative Action! Minor? You are T totally full of shit! Add to it the Executive Orders. Add to that Clinton's bright idea to force banks to approve high risk home loans for the poor.
You claim to be a conservative libertarian, but you endorse the typical liberal stupidity: if something doesn't work, push for more of that something.
Yes, when compared to the state-mandated laws requiring white privilege for 150-200 years, Affirmative Action & Executive Orders are but a minor feeble attempt to compensate for the damage done to minorities.

I also love how you preach race has nothing to do with blacks remaining in poverty, dominating Welfare Rolls, dominating single motherhood stats, and continuing to be poorly educated despite special treatment.
Then, you turn around and say all those things are due to race because of "white privilege" and one race not going through the same level of discrimination as another.
Your hypocrisy knows no bounds.
Correct, being black isn't the cause of poverty, welfare, single motherhood etc. 150+ years of state-mandated discrimination, bias in educational funding, and continuing racism is the cause.

Typical that would be your response.
Separate but equal is discrimination in your eyes? Because blacks couldn't take care of or provide for themselves? You feel that granting freedom and separate equality were not enough? It's up to whitey to do for the blacks since they could not or did not do for themselves? What is your conservative libertarian view on self responsibility? What about self preservation? Self reliance?
Not just my eyes.

"Separate but equal" was never equal, was never intended to provide equality, and was ruled discriminatory by the SCOTUS.

Of course people are responsible for their own lives; that doesn't change the fact that the govt mandated an entire race faced more obstacles when trying to be responsible for themselves.

They deserve their right to a fair trial. But once sentence is passed, I agree, fry them if found guilty.

What is interesting about it is how the media WILL NOT report the race of the killer. We must not mention it. Oh no. That would be racist.
It was a black kid. Bored. Shot and killed a white kid FOR NO REASON.
The white kid didn't jump on top of the black kid, break his nose, pound his face, slam his head into the concrete. He was just running along, trying to get some exercise.
I am so damned tired it.
If he shot the kid for no reason, then race obviously wasn't a relevant factor in the killing. The only reason to mention race would be to fire up the racists such as yourself.

Did they mention whether the killer was left-handed or right-handed?

I am so damned tired of the media ignoring all these right-handed people killing left-handed people.....

Since race wasn't a factor, why does it need to be mentioned?

Oh that's right, racists can only view everything which happens in the world according to the race of those involved.

BS! There were no state mandated laws requiring "white privilege". There were laws providing separate but equal stance in the community. Blacks were not self sufficient, now you want whites to pay for it!
If blacks were left to practice self sufficiency, responsibility, and take care of themselves, eventually they would become self sufficient, responsible, and take care of themselves. Instead, you want to hobble them with reliance on whites! You are NOT doing them any favors.

Btw, if the media "will not report the race of the killer", then just how do you know the race of the killer?

Either you lied about the media- as usual- or you're assuming the killer was black- like a good racist would do.

Actually 100 years (1865 - 1965) of laws providing separate but equal to blacks. They could not or would not function as a contributing race to society. How is that whites' fault?

"the media WILL NOT report the race of the killer"

I found out from the media. How'd you find out? Media gave race of perps and victims and published pictures of the three perps, picture of victim, and picture of his girlfriend.

You must be tuning into FOX News.

Really?

Then it should be real easy for you to show me a story about a minority school district building a $60 million football stadium while a white majority school in the next district is literally falling down.....

Ready, go!

Nope, no evidence the alleged killers were members of a gang either.

Or are you just assuming they MUST be gang members because they're black?

Good little racist.....

That's the problem in this country! Bleeding heart, politically correct, liberals feel the need to force the issue. Why would you want to force people to intermingle with you if they do not want to in the first place? Do you think you can force respect? Do you think you can force people to like you? Do you think there will be no resentment as a consequence?
If blacks had taken advantage if separate but equal, flourished within their own community, and contributed to society, whites would have taken notice. Whites would have started being more accepting of blacks. Eventually, whites and blacks would have been together and equal. But NO, you want to force is down people's throats and wonder why blacks are viewed the way they are.
