"injustice in the black community" has nothing to do with this case. Protest something that will make a difference for black people like the injustice of allowing chronically failing schools to have anything to do with our children. THAT is an injustice in the black community. Protest sperm donors. THAT is injustice in the black community.
Protest parents who don't have constructive relationships with their child's teacher. THAT'S injustice in the black community.

You are looking at the big picture, and you are correct.



What I was saying is she was technically right too. When you look at the numbers at the end of the year statistically, the numbers of white on white and black on black murders are pretty close. She just didn't look at the fact that blacks are only about 13% of the population. Which means in the big picture, they commit way more murders of their own race.

I don't think I recall any posters in this particular thread complaining about a citizens right to free speech and protests :?



We are discussing it and debating.

Stay on topic

I just need one person to point me in the right direction to see this poof of stereotyping, profiling.
Can you do it? Or will you just make excuses like the others?

Excuses and speculation is all they can say because there is no proof.

You don't need proof in this country when you shout racism. You're guilty as soon as you're accused. People are more suspicious of women who accuse someone of rape than they are of minorities who accuse a white person of racism.

you do if you want to convict someone of murder based on those grounds.

and I honestly have not yet seen anything that indicates such.
