All of the crimes you outlined are committed by all kinds of people regardless of race. However, when whites are incarcertated at the time they break the law…and even get beaten and shot in the same manner (and it seems we’re seeing an escalation of this now), we will see all criminals being punished as they should. But it’s more than laws that cause some criminal behavior—hunger, housing, medical care, mental illness, all of these things are often what underpin the problem. Reagan started this mess closing the mental hospitals, companies not paying taxes (greed), sucking the money out of maintenance of our country’s infrastructure (jobs), and the No! No! Congress for the past 6 years, then you have people weighing the odds of imprisonment and surviving, or taking one’s chances on the streets and ending up dead from police or illness. Now tell us how you roll…
AgentSmith101, and if POCs do anything else, they’re met with a SWAT TEAM…and the more the media lies, the more people like yourself use “race” as a braiding tool.
Clay, thanks for all the work that you do…some people get it and understand you very well.
Connie, hope you’re not just supporting the dialect without making sure students can speak proper English when needed? To give them a pass because it’s a dialect is not a positive end result for the child.
NFL Redskins, as racist as your team’s name (that you support), you do not understand Tole’s toon…
Bok is still in his Amos and Andy days of the 1940s and 1950s I see. Bok it is 2013 on the way to 2014 and the defeat of the GOP….
Coraryan, enough of the military madness…trillions and trillions…if you want war, let the old white men and his progeny fight them with their own hands on the ground and in the trenches…that’s fighting a war if you really believe in it…not sending children of other Americans to do it because of their poverty or simplistic views of what it means to be a man.
and don’t forget sexual orientation and ableness. The combination does cover the diversity of humankind quite nicely.
