From your user name and fractured English I believed you to be of Slavic descent, Czech

It's not too late to go back and learn proper English ya know. You don't even hafta leave

Nebka is the birth name of an Ancient Egyptian king (pharaoh) who ruled during the 3rd dynasty of the Old Kingdom. He is thought to be identical with the Hellenized name form Necherophes (by Manetho). Nebka is one of the most disputed kings of the Old Kingdom, since his name is handed down as cartouche name only, but is preserved always in the same typographical way. And because the sources for the name “Nebka” are that numerous, this ruler is seen as a historically important figure.
When I was looking for a user name I wanted one that other people never used and being interested in Ancient Egyptian culture I found his name.

Hardly. At least thousands of people over 50 return to school, usually since their children have grown and moved, along with numerous other commitments freed up. And that's just here in the US alone.

This is why I posted some time back I do feel this nation is over, at least as its been known from its founding. The last two elections I've heard much lip service to rights, and many that I must have missed now being included by our younger folks. Right to so called "free housing" Right to a "free education" Right to a "free internet" Right to a job that pays a living wage. And little to nothing about the actual rights that we do have pissed on by Obama and gang. 1st Amendment, shredded under him. 2nd check. 4th check. Have to agree on one point. Most in this nation have proved they are more than happy to vote for the guy that can slow jam and have good optics. We get the government we deserve. Watch out for that drone.

I know it wasn't to me but I found that snl skit racist. Not sure I would call people that laughed at it racist, guessing I was about 6 when it aired and the times you've lived though I have not. More like a way to release built up tension. Now I do find this funny:

Wrong as usual. You must think because in this forum I point out that the President you are so proud of that targets people like me it defines me, it does not. As long as I can speak I will point out how worthless his words are, how he does not have a very transparent administration, how this debt we keep ringing up is screwing everyone, how the propaganda campaign may one day end many of our civil rights (especially the 2nd amendment) just to name a few. But we live on. Going to have a great day Sat starting with a walk on the beach at sunrise. Ta ta.

I didn't think the skits were racist. I don't think it's so much what I've lived through as my personal taste in comedy.

My taste is edgier (or crass or crude, if you want) than what some like. I like Bill Cosby - but I also like Richard Pryor and Eddie Murphy's comedy, which Bill didn't.

I see a difference between racial humor and racist humor. Racial humor plays with stereotypes; racist humor perpetuates them.

The problem is that there's no clear line marking where one ends and the other starts.

Of course, if you don't agree with me about what's funny and what's not, well, then, you're wrong.

Should add I meant many people have now said a college education should be free and a right. Some states have done that via the lottery, Ga. comes to mind. Here is a good example a person that is a living example of what they insist they are entitled to.

.. in the early 20th Century, the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory in New York caught fire and 145 workers, mostly women, were killed because the owners refused to install safety features and locked employees in. This tragedy brought attention to sweatshop conditions that led to laws to protect workers ..

.. today, you'd probably say these laws were vital but at the time there was widespread descension, especially among business owners and the upper class. Poor people feared for their jobs and dreaded the prospect of going hungry ..

.. you bitch and moan that America is pitching laws that discriminate and adding common sense laws that you disagree with. We're getting closer to what our forefathers envisioned and no longer allowing religious organizations to dictate how our country is run ..

.. history proves that the Triangle Shirtwaist Factory catastrophe could have been averted if government wasn't looking after business interests. It's my contention that the very same situation exists today and people are deaf, blind and dumb. Do we need another BP or Iraq War? This time we're wagering the planet ..

I bitch and moan that our laws no longer mean a thing. Take a memo, the dear leader has a pen and phone or so he says. Pass all the laws you want when you decide who gets to obey them and who gets a pass you don't have America anymore. And talk about moaning do you know where Obama is spending his well earned vacation right now?

For what it's worth, Chris, that little twit disgusts me too.

As far as rights go, I agree that Obama's administration has shredded them - but that's not the platform he ran on, is it.

Republicans MUST STOP going after rights they don't agree others should have. The rights to freedom from religion, medical autonomy, and marriage, come to mind.

It can be difficult to have a frank discussion about race.
A high school friend of mine - we once got stopped and taken to a police station because a black guy and a white guy in a car together was suspicious to some in the 60s - went on to become a minister at a church, not inner city/slum neighborhood but on the fringe and crumbling.
We stayed in touch through the years. In the mid 90s I happened to see him on television twice in the span of a couple of months. The first time he was decrying the lack of police protection near his church. The second time he was decrying the fact that in the course of a shootout with (and begun by) gang members, an innocent bystander was shot and killed, and he blamed the police.
Next time I saw him I asked him about that, if he didn't see at least some inconsistency in the two statements.
His initial response was to challenge my 'racist' views.
Now, we got past it and stayed friends without a whole lot of strain - but I'll be damned if I ever brought up anything like that with him again.
It could very well be that the sort of thing I'm talking about here is what Lyndi's talking about - at least, that's what I'd like to think.
So he initially wanted more police protection, and when he got more police presence, blamed the police for the bystander's death, right?

Why?

Perhaps your friend didn't believe, the second time, that the police were there to protect him...or innocent bystanders, for that matter. Perhaps he believed that the police were there to control him, and everyone else.

It's not a belief without merit. And I can imagine that your inquiry as to inconsistencies, put him on the defensive, because you could have just asked him why he thought .... whatever it was he thought....instead, he may have perceived an accusation of racism, himself, and been affronted. Wouldn't you be? Merited or not?

Our laws mean EVERYTHING, Chris. They're the only thing we have, between utter chaos, and the perception of order.

The thing is, laws which are being overturned and declared invalid, are the ones you wanted to keep, and some which are being proposed and adopted, are the ones you resent the intrusion of. It's not that we don't have meaningful laws....you're just not happy with what they mean.

In a lot of cases, neither am I - we even seem to agree on a few to be unhappy about. But you can't bear to be happy about some things which really plant my garden, and I feel the same way about some things which truly peel your banana.

C'est la vie.

The police were there in response to demands from the community for increased protection.

Since he was one of the ones who demanded it, since he and other community leaders were meeting with them regularly, he KNEW that. He wanted them there. He'd asked for them to be there. He gave the 2nd interview on television at a reporter's request after listening to community rumors for a day (maybe two) and before he'd even talked to his police contacts.

So no ... I don't think he believed the police were there to "control him, and his community". I think it would have been a belief without merit in these circumstances. This wasn't stop and frisk or excessive enforcement of nuisance laws or any of the things that give credibility to those charges once in a while - far less often than they are raised, imo.

It does sound like something we might have told each other at one time, though. We would have firmly resolved to go do something about it, just as soon as we listened to the rest of this album, and maybe one more. And established world peace, impeached Nixon, and ...

I didn't raise the issue with him as abruptly or accusatory as I made it sound here, and it was the kind of thing we'd talked to and challenged each other about for 30+ years. His reaction was disproportionate to the question I posed to him, and as I think I said in a later post - he was profusely apologetic about it.

Would I have done the same? Knowing what he was going through at the time, it's entirely possible. The way he did it? That I'm not sure about.

Nearly did not graduate from HS, but I guess English saved my bacon. Hated history, as it was all boring medieval reading, and astronomy was too far out. Geometry was square, and biology was gross. Spanish class was foreign to me, and I was lost in geography. So really, being the class clown almost cost me a diploma.
