I side with the innocent until proven guilty type. Unfortunately we have trigger happy law enforcers in this world who thrive on ignorance and one sided views on certain people/life. I mean c'mon, I think Michael Brown got the point after the first shot.

Does that mean blacks are going to pick themselves up and act civilized, or do you expect whites to thug down?

When have liberals ever told the truth? Of course the Police Officer is innocent, he did exactly what his training dictated. That thugs parents should have taught him manners and then he would still be alive!
The bottom line is all you donut eating barrel assed corrupt cops think you innocent because you believe your above the law. Not enforcing it! And when a camera is rolling and the truth comes out. It's not the low I.Q. Napoleon complex having teenage scared and revenge seeking simpleton that has to pay the price. It's the taxpayers that have to pay off the lawsuits. I say start sueing them as an individual as well. And I promise the corruptions will sl. Down because a paid vacation isn't a punishment....or send them to prison like they send others for doing the same thing...and see how bad they are...

She is correct. Lincoln and the union army that everybody loves so much didn't have much love for the Indians, either.

They should have all been returned to Africa. But once there, they would have just massacred each other like they're doing in Chicago. Tribal instincts die hard I guess. Slavery gave them a purpose, a direction in life.

All the Black Guy had to do was whatever the Officer told him to do and none of this would have ever happened.
That fifty dollar box of cigarillos wasn't worth his Life, but he made that bad choice and it got him killed. It's pretty much that simple, IMO.
the cop pulled up so close and tried to open the door on mike his name is mike.mike shut the door back on the cop.cop pulled mike in the truck mike punched him who wouldnt. Cop shot mike 6 times deserves to ho to hell]

Whites have lives, and their own family's to deal with, They work so the head rila can steal their money so it can be handed to people like this. They don't have time to waste on marching to look like idiots.

What did the protesting do for Trayvona Martin Thug, NOTHING.

Humans know the family must work it out and go about the system the correct way.

How does robbing a walmart change what happened. Only animals think this way.

The media pulled the same garbage, showing him in a graduation robe when he's been a criminal his whole life with juvenile offenses and several felony's.

Being a black senior citizen here are a few suggestions for the current younger black generation.
Don't break the law and place yourself in a situation with the police that will become confrontational and possibly getting yourself shot.
Stop calling each other the n-word and pull up your pants. Doing this has set us back 50 years and we have lost all the respect and equal rights we have fought for all those years.
Stop being so emotional over a shooting of someone that you do not even know personally. If a black cop shot a white kid the white community would just accept that the kid screwed up and that was the consequences of his actions.
Stop rioting over any type of injustice that you feel was done because of our race. You are showing the world that we react only using our emotions and not our intelligence. This degrades us and portrays us as being less intelligent and not able to solve conflicts without using our emotions and by being impulsive.
Stop using "affirmative action" options to obtain jobs. Affirmative action was needed many decades in the past but it actually hurts us now. We lose respect and credibility by obtaining a job because of our race. We need to prove that we are on the same level and have the qualifications and intelligence to obtain that desired job without using the race card to acquire it.
And as you see as I write this we need to stop using "we" when referring to our own community. The US is now comprised of Mexicans, Puerto Ricans and many other races that are now becoming the majority and outnumbering the white community. In all black community sermons the word "we" is used and that is actually separating us from the other communities. In other races and their church's/places of worship they do not use the word "we".
Using the word "we" is telling the other communities that we want to be segregated from them and that is not what we fought for all these past years.
We need to start respecting ourselves (no more calling each other the n-word as a greeting to one another, etc.) We will never be accepted as an equal race if we keep degrading each other.
Absolutely agree with you. I too am black and try to express the same values as you mentioned. A Latino friend of mine told me a few years ago that serveral of hia family believed the black community segregated itself and they didn't understand it.
