By the time I reach 5000 posts I probably won't remember you telling me this.

Of the police abuse stories I've read, many of them have also involved white victims.

Now, the media has exploded because of the reaction of the community, not the incident itself.

Well, I suppose that's a little more acceptable.

The writer of the article probably knows it too. I'm in support of the police as much as most conservatives, but people need to recognize they fouled up too, and rarely report on each other.

This is double standards among races. Hopefully, the white community will not respiond with a dangerous protest where people were injured and stores looted.

Well, they have as much of a right to do so as the black community does. But still, I suppose you're right.

If you take the sarcasm out of Rush Limbaugh's quote it reads a whole lot differently.

They have a right to cause damage to stores and injure people in a protest?

The Black culture of "Die Pigs" has only left their communities lawless as they shed each other to bits with their African Violence.

Bill Cosby had it right.

I'm not saying that White people are oppressed. They are still the wealthier majority group. However, if you're going to cry racism whenever an unarmed black guy is shot by a white guy and doesn't receive justice, then you should also cry racism whenever an unarmed white guy is shot by a black guy and doesn't receive justice.
Anything less than is hypocrisy, plain and simple.

If you really want you to argue that I could prove that the Irish in the North were more discriminated against than the Blacks in the South from the birth of America to the Civil War.

Well, they were forced to do all the tough very low wage jobs, but at least they weren't beaten to death by masters.

Aye, but it was worse. They were in the vise of wage slavery were the Tweed Political Machine even took away their rights to 'help them out' and then you have the Know Nothing's who targeted and black listed Irish. Or how about the KKK, the KKK targeted Catholics and Irish as well. Plus the fact that the Irish were discrimated against by the Protestant Church in America as they saw the Irish drinking as a problem.

The Irish women were attacked for being to manly like. You know they caused fights, got drunk, wore underwear, and went out of the house.

All of these things that women do today.

In crime, race shouldn't matter unless it caused it. Police brutality is police brutality. Murder is murder. Arson is arson. The race of the victim and the offender do not matter unless it is surely racially motivated.

The problem is, people are focusing too much on their differences that they forget that we are all just normal people trying to live their lives.
My political compass:
Economic Left/Right: -1.00
Social Libertarian/Authoritarian: -2.82
