It's amazing how this event can bring out the old kind of race baiting on this forum.. It's like the
KKK is ruling the roost. The same people who hated MLK when he was alive are still around to hate the memory of his dedication to civil rights. I guess that will never change and one can't expect it to.
When people are raised into the worst kind of racism, as evidenced by those posting on this forum now, no amount of education can ever change their minds. Sadly, they are, no doubt, infecting the minds of their children, raising up another generation of rednecks and crackers.

Gee Gary the last time I looked the blacks were just as racist as the whites,maybe even a little more so.What is the old saying?,people that live in glass houses shouldn't throw stones.Every race get treated the way they act in public and the way they live,you solve the problem.
