Re: “Hush That Fuss?

Watching this video I observed around the 2:43 mark a student attempting to grab something from the left side of the officer's belt and also saw another large student rush the officer. Bringing the parents in to diffuse the situation would have made the situation worse, as they would have to wait for them to arrive and also you don't want to bring more people into an already volatile situation. Plus if the parents had taught the children respect then we wouldn't have had the incident occur at all. Also around the same time mark you can clearly see one officer putting his body cam back on. Let me ask, how would YOU have diffused the situation peacefully? The police did indeed remove the problem which was assault, not simple students' pranks. You never address the assault on the bus driver and the students stating that they wanted a black driver , not a white one, which is clearly racist, but I don't expect you to understand that. The age of the students do not matter as I read in the paper just this morning of a killing by a 17 year old and a burglary by a 16 year old. You remind me of what the principal said when my daughter complained about being groped in the hallway, " Boys will be boys", which didn't go over well with me or my wife. Perhaps if you ever get assaulted you can ask for the perps name and call his parents to diffuse the situation instead of calling the police.

Re: “Hush That Fuss?

So, when a bus full of black people has an altercation and "only black people are arrested", you think that that is some kind of racial profiling!?! What a joke, stop with your white guilt and write about things that matter. Parents need to teach kids respect for authority and shit like this wont happen. I was taught to deal with police like you deal with your grandparents/elders. "Yes sir, sorry sir, never will i do it again sir" even if you think you are in the right. You can deal with the charges in front of a judge later. If you cooperate, you usually get a slap on the wrist.

Re: “Jeff Sessions brings racist baggage from Senate to AG's office

No, but Jackson did run for president once. My point is that he is more racist than Sessions ever was, but black people seem to get a break when they are blatantly racist. Plus Sessions isn't racist. And your point is...?

Ever-who thinks that this is not a deplorable person stealing from the Girl Scouts, IS deplorable themselves if they condone this.

Re: “Attorneys for Michael Slager cite Trump’s declarations of ‘fake news’ in allegations of media witch-hunt

I heard these skinhead looking dudes talking in the mall the other day. They were all pissed off at something. Fed up or something like that... One dude was like "Man the chit we got at the gun show is untraceable" The other dude was like "Yeah and hunting rounds will go through their vests". Then the first dude said "Now all we gotta' do is make a bogus call and wait." I wonder what they were talking about?

Re: “Muhiyidin d'Baha sits down with Quintin Washington two days after arrest during Confederate flag protest

So, Chesterboy, what you're saying is that him fighting against it validates it? If he did nothing, would that not also validate it? I'm sure it wouldn't matter to you how he opposed it, it would all give validity to the cause, right?

No one is supreme over anyone else. We're all people. We have the same thoughts, feelings and abilities. We all get traffic tickets, jail sentences, college degrees and Nobel prizes for the same things. What separates us is language, distance and culture. These are the very things that we should peacefully engage one another on, to grow closer as human beings - because we're much more alike than we are different - instead of using those things to divide and conquer based on nationalistic differences or melanin count. The separatist/racist mindset is the problem, and it's the very reason why his reaction was one of the noblest of responses. Fighting against the problem of evil is the only way to reach a solution of peace. To not fight against evil is to fight for it. If the things white supremacists do are done to them, they'll be in an uproar, because they know it's unfair. It's not only unfair if it's done to them. It's unfair against all of us. Anyone operating under the double standard which says otherwise sits at the height of hypocrisy and is the cancer of humanity. Unity doesn't cause problems, division does. Be part of the solution.
