Holder is doing nothing more than his usual Obama butt kiss.. The state of Missouri can and would do what is right without the idiots putting their unwanted and unneeded 2 cents in... Stay in Washington where you can butt kiss your boss.

Oh I'm soooo happy to know Holder is on board in Ferguson. Those poor store owners wil feel so much better. He and other can fan flames and keep those votes coming in. I hope he keeps his schedule clear since a white guy got the hell beat out of his, so I've read, in Detroit. Bunch of thugs jumped him. They were concerned I guess about civil rights of those in Ferguson. We will wait n watch the discrimination continue. Bet Sharpton will talk about how that mans civil rights were violated. Oh yeah. That's ok. Those rights are only for blacks. I apologize. I forgot again!!!

Holder called for "an end to the acts of violence in the streets of Ferguson.''

"Although these acts have been committed by a very small minority — and, in many cases, by individuals from outside Ferguson — they seriously undermine, rather than advance, the cause of justice,'' Holder said. "And they interrupt the deeper conversation that the legitimate demonstrators are trying to advance.''

Why is it that so many people who use Topix political discussions to deride and belittle President Obama, General Holder and Reverend Sharpton have yet to master the use of punctuation or capitalization? These learned scholars require the reader to attempt making sense of their ramblings by trying to determine where sentences end and others begin.

Some second thoughts...

Of course, we mustn't fail to consider the possibility that all those monikers may be used by the same person, hence giving the impression that a lot of people who deride and belittle President Obama, General Holder and Reverend Sharpton have yet to master the use of punctuation or capitalization. Some people seem to change their moniker frequently for reasons that are never really clear.

Nor should we fail to appreciate the convenience afforded by those folks who have poor writing skills, but plagiarize the work of others who are reasonably skilled grammarians. Even though illegal and unethical, their criminal theft in fact serves as a major convenience to their readers. Unlike posters who change their moniker more frequently than their underwear, Rand Paul always uses the same name, at least as far as we would know. It's too bad that he doesn't appear to have a loyal follower who's both reasonably literate and willing to volunteer as his ghostwriter, which would cut down on his rampant creative property crime wave.

Yes. You make a powerful argument for Ebonics. Apparently, the Africans are able to understand what their fellow Africans are saying.

Exactly! Because African Ebonics is vague and non-specific, shuck-and-jive Africans have the RIGHT to disavow the meanings of what they have said at some future time. You are also right when you say that Rand Paul is a typical "color-blind" Republican politician.

Please re-read my post — more carefully — and you'll note that it merely questions why it is that so many people who use Topix political discussions to deride and belittle President Obama, General Holder and Reverend Sharpton have yet to master the use of punctuation or capitalization, and that it makes no argument for Ebonics, which is a spoken colloquial variant of English and not a proper written language with a structures specifying use of punctuation or capitalization.

I do, however, strongly favor reading English written with reasonably understandable punctuation and capitalization. You demonstrate good command of English as a written language, but you seem to have a problem understanding English that's reasonably well written, such as my post.

Ronald, if you're going to continue responding to my posts, please read them carefully so you can understand them and not misquote me. Your agenda appears to be to demean Ebonics and/or people who speak it, but clearly for some reason, you happen to be so preoccupied with Ebonics, which you misunderstand to be an African language, that you think that's what my post is about. It's not about hat at all.

You also completely misunderstand what I said about Rand Paul. I did not comment that I consider him go be "a typical "color-blind" Republican politician." What I did say — to save you the inconvenience of having to re-read my post more carefully — is: "Unlike posters who change their moniker more frequently than their underwear, Rand Paul always uses the same name, at least as far as we would know. It's too bad that he doesn't appear to have a loyal follower who's both reasonably literate and willing to volunteer as his ghostwriter, which would cut down on his rampant creative property crime wave."

Yes. I agree. Ebonics and various forms of African music are suitable for those who have unstructured minds. Unfortunately, for an advanced civilization to survive, structure and order are necessary components.

What is it that you think I said that you're agreeing with, Ronald? My sense is that you're intentionally misinterpreting the meaning of my words as an effort to falsely what I say. I deplore racism in any form.
 
I'll be pleased to have an honest discussion with you, but I'll not implicitly dignify a pretense of racism by continuing to do so. I really don't want to talk about "Africans" talking "Ebonics" or "shucking and jiving," etc. any more than I would want to be part of a Klan rally.

 
I believe these discussions are important and welcome honest disagreement. I hope you'll agree since you're articulate and write clearly. However, racism is off the table. I appreciate that you haven't insulted me personally by calling me "stupid" or waging other personal insults. Let's talk.

Yes. I believe we have the basis of understanding. I too deplore "racism" in any form. That is why I do not represent preconceived notions as fact. I believe this is important, especially when the issue is the lynching of White cops for the purpose of redressing past grievances - both real and imagined.

Well-meaning representatives of the White community often ask me why the racists are unwilling to permit the Africans to live amongst their own kind, so that they might be able celebrate their own unique "culture" without interference by the man. I have never been able to give a satisfactory answer.

I recently read an interesting article that was written by the White man, Fred Reed. For your consideration, I am posting below a source link to Reeds' article. I hope you read the article. If you do, please get back with me and tell me what you think.

I am from Chicago and follow the news from several news papers on line. 7 blacks were killed last weekend and 23 wounded by black & immigrant drug gangs.

check with Chicago news topix , or the sun times or Chicago tribune news papers.

call the Chicago police and ask them how many people were shot killed and if anyone was arrested. There were 520 black people killed on the south side by other black people last year alone and no one did anything to stop the violence .

Tell me when this thread is updated:
