Heck, I am not white, I am not black .. but I see it all the time ... I see ladies clutching their purses on buses when a black kid walks by, I even have cop friends who tell me they pull over more black people in vehicles more for no reason, just to check things out ... hey, it happens, i think it will take a while to change if it ever will, but they haven't been given a fair shake, and haven't been able to build up their communities etc .. Is it all "Whitey's" fault? nope, a lot of them live up to the various stereotypes about them, but a lot of them don't and they get treated the same way .. just my opinion ...
every time i wander into a discussion and see your post i think to myself,,wow,,this guy can read my mind,we agree on virtually everything,,well there is one thing i'm pretty sure we dont agree on,
you see i love red smarties so i eat the red ones first just in case i'm to full to eat them last,
see what i'm getting at here?
there is one thing that makes me a little sad though,,you seem to have a lot better grasp of the English language then i do when it comes to writing,,your use of capital letters and proper punctuation has me in AW ,
you seem to be a lot younger and much smarter version of me and i feel like i'm becoming obsolete,,
oh well,we cant stay on top forever i guess,,
i look forward to your next post,, (as should everyone else,maybe then they would learn something.)
