I understood you. You didn't say anything that sounded wrong. To tell you the truth, it has been a long haul for people to move from the past. I honestly think that white Americans have become among the least racially prejudice people on earth. Except maybe for the French. We have been forced to be that way really by circumstances. But CNN is not going to make a financial killing saying that kind of thing. Much more money to be made making martyrs out of a guy who attacks a cop and gets shot, or another guy who had been arrested 31 times and died from a heart attack while being subdued resisting arrest.

I agree, that is what happens when the country we live in is arguably the most racially diverse on the face of the earth. And as sad as the reality is , I have to agree with the rest of your statement as well. Although I am a bit troubled by the second incident and the way it was handled, I still feel that both incidents would have been avoided had there been better choices made by the two young men that paid the ultimate price for their actions in the heat of the moment. Neither one of them would likely be in too much trouble, and more importantly alive today had they simply cooperated with law enforcement.

Personally I'm glad that we have something like GMC to let us all come together and share our thoughts and links and such smile.gif Please don't take anything I say personally as I never mean it to be harmful/hurtful. I do run a bit towards sarcasm though smile.gif Which doesn't always come across well in text form.

Sometimes I think crsn might blow a gasket while typing but it's all in good fun smile.gif I hope folks reading this have gotten as much out of it as I have smile.gif Some really great replies. Thanks to everyone who participated!!! I've said my bit at this point so I"ll leave the rest to you guys wink.gif
