WHAT'S HAPPENED SINCE TRAYVON MARTIN DIED?
Well, almost 10,000 blacks have been murdered, nearly all of them by other blacks. This is a result not of their race, but rather of the liberal policies foisted on their society by white elites who think they know better. They're ruined the black churches, decimated the black family and introduced rampant drug use. The results were as expected.
The US has the 3rd worst murder rate in the world. But it you take out Detroit, Chicago, D.C. and New Orleans (all majority black), we drop to 4th from the bottom. Those cities also have very strict gun control.....and they're all controlled by Democrats.
But the liberals mean well! Don't they? Odd that with climate change they demand that the facts be carefully examined. But with social change, they couldn't care less. Their good intentions are all that matters.

Answer the question, diva wannabe, instead of stooping to the usual ad hominem attacks you think cover your all-too-transparent butt.
I've expressed myself on the topic in the past, and I have no intention of doing it again. It's not a short study, and no synpotic version of the history of slavery in America would be useful here. If you WANT to learn, you read and then you ask questions. Those whose ancestors handed down their stories for future generations will share what they learned - if your interest is sincere. Often, Native Americans can explain how that works if you have any Native American friends or acquaintances. What I can definitely say is that I have absolutely no desire whatsoever to read your version of history. It makes me shudder when you attempt to condescend or express your eugenics perspectives.

<quoted text>Absolutely wrong. Benevolence is not in this discussion. It's a matter of equal access to equal opportunity that is the hallmark of America's promise, and when that is withheld based on birth station, I feel compelled to point it out.
Somehow you have come to the conclusion that opinion is only afforded those who have the financial resources to permit them the right to an opinion? Boolsheet, you silly snob.
Liberalism is ALL about snobbery! Nobody is fooled by your puffery and self-serving words. Go out and start a business, invent something or get a job if you are truly serious about wanting to help. Sitting around whining about the supposed "boogeymen" who are holding others down is nothing but scapegoating, the tried & true refuge of ever despot since Nero.

Exaggerating the role that birth station plays in America is just promulgating a lie. That lie is spread by liberals in order to justify their mass-theft and power grabbing, nothing more.

"We had to take the Jews property. They were hoarding it." - Hitler

"We had to collectivize the peasant's farms. They weren't being fair." - Stalin

"We had to march the city dwellers into the countryside and let them starve. They weren't experiencing the true plight of the masses." - Mao, Pol Pot

Every little tin-horn dictator, mass-murderer and socialist tyrant needs a boogeyman class to blame. You're no different.

I agree. It's NOT their fault. The fault lies with white liberals and their agenda.
Amen.

Today, segregation is a chosen condition of some people of different races. They 'wall' themselves up. Some people are more comfortable living and working with people who are like them. People who don't wish to live segregated by race don't. That era of forced segregation is over. Yet liberals still insist on bussing school children out of their comfort zones, even over the protests of parents.

The beauty of this country is that we are ruled by law - law that everyone here must follow, no matter who they are or where they choose to live. When they don't follow those laws and invent laws to suit themselves, they are going against everything this country stands for. That is their choice, and repercussions from their choice are theirs alone to deal with.

Local laws can be applied for their benefit. But to change federal law for the few over the good of everyone else is absurd and wrong. The needs of the many outweighs the needs of the few. That's just the way it is in a country like ours. And this has nothing to do with race except on the local level where specific groups of people want their way, because the 'many' in our country's case includes people of all races. The people walling themselves up in segregated communities and demanding major change to suit only themselves are the racist ones.

I really hope officer FGY seeks mental health treatment for work related stress and files a nice workers compensation claim against the fine people of Ferguson, MO. He can sit at home drawing 75% pay tax free for as long as he is suffering from the work related injury. That could be ten years or longer. And he should also get a really nice settlement out of the deal as well. It is really nice of that cameraman for documenting officer GFY's chronic stress symptoms.

Did you ever attend any high school in The United States of America? If you had, you would surely know that "Brave New World" was required reading throughout the land. Sheesh.

Of course that incidence has no relevance in the case of Officer Darren Wilson's self defense shooting of Michael Brown. You are wondering again NTR
I would like to see the investigation played out. That holds for ANY police shooting REGARDLESS of the race of the dead person. Deadly force used by the authorities is a serious matter and must be closely supervised.

It does appear that a huge criminal who had just displayed considerable aggression during a strong-arm robbery of a convenience store also made the mistake of attempting to beat an armed policeman. The cop, fearful he'd be rendered unconscious and perhaps murdered with his own gun, seems to have fired in self-defense.

The police are not required to access what weapons you may or may not possess, strip down to match you one-to-one in "fair fight" and then engage with you as if this was a sporting event. For all they know your aggression may be fueled by the knowledge that you have a concealed knife, brass knuckles or even a hidden handgun. What else would you expect when someone is foolish enough to attack a policeman, who they know is armed AND lawfully authorized to use deadly force?

A reasonable man, INCLUDING a cop, would infer that your brazenness is fueled by something more than the desire for a gentlemanly exchange of fisticuffs using Marquis of Queensbury rules. The police are also entitled to use common sense judgments, like that someone the size of an NFL linebacker is all the more dangerous due to their sheer bulk. A cop alone is also more vulnerable, and therefore entitled to take that into account too.

IF the above scenario is indeed what happened, the criminal Michael Brown (not the "unarmed teenager" Michael Brown) was shot dead in self-defense, no matter what Obama, Sharpton or Holder have to say. Brown's race & age is irrelevant. Justice wears a blindfold for a reason. End of story.

Required reading, yes. Did you learn anything from it? Not even one little bit, it seems.

One of the 20th century's greatest novels decrying the horrors of "state control of nearly everything", and you got diddley-squat of its message and became a Democrat anyway. How sad.

He has lost his career and his right to carry a gun. More importantly, this stunt will only add to the long list of police abuses for which the town of Ferguson will be held accountable. I pray that town has a good insurance carrier and I hope they are prepared for the shower of individual and class action lawsuits.

<quoted text> Some black kings sold there own people to the slavers.
Yes, they did. They didn't have to be kings to own slaves, however. Slavery was part of their justice system and was used as punishment for the crimes of theft, adultery, and witchcraft. Once a slave, the offenders were forever slaves, and any children they created were also slaves. Wealthy tribesmen were given those slaves. Most tribes were not agriculturally inclined, so slave populations were often idle but needed to be fed. When traders came to ports on the west coast of Africa, slaves were among other goods free Africans hoped to use in trade. Even if no slave traders from around the world came to that coast, there would have been Africans bound in slavery. Very sad.

It's also sad that slavery was a world-wide institution at the time of the British colonies, although early colonists from England tended to use indentured servants as labor. Even native Americans were known to enslave natives from rival tribes, and women colonists, as well.

Spain introduced slavery in the Americas, and the French used it also, on plantations. When Spain and France sold off land to the USA, slaves often went with plantations as assets in the sales. The US federal government counted the slave population assiduously, seeing slaves as taxable assets and a source of revenue. Only land owners were taxed at that point in our history.

Slave traders saw an opportunity to sell US plantation owners more slaves, but were ultimately disappointed. Early in the 1800's the USA outlawed the trafficking of foreign born slaves on our shores, so no more enslaved Africans came here legally.

Probably TMI, but so few people know these things. All they hear is revisionist history designed to foster guilt where guilt should not exist.

Sorry, but, again, that figure of 90 million natives covers all of South, Central, and North America. It does not cover only North America. Most died of disease - they weren't slaughtered or butchered. It's sad, yes, wish it hadn't happened but can't feel guilty for things that happened beginning as early as 1100 AD.

What is happening in the world today - wars and killing - we have only to look at who benefits most from such wars - those who supply the wars and those who benefit from securing the land those wars take place on. If we can only get back control of our government, we could do something to stop our part in wars. But that seems impossible at this juncture.
