Lay on the ground all you want, all you gonna get is your clothes dirty. Get up off the ground and go review the evidence! Try checking the official “what really happened,” ya might get your feelings hurt to find out pookie lied…
And after you get your clothes clean, go into these neighborhoods and witness what the REAL issue is. Education, economics, disenfranchisement, etc. Guess what? Even if you get rid of every so called racist crooked cop in the world the REAL issue will still exist!!

It’s not one’s skin color, thats way too simple of an explanation especially for those of us who seemed to have transcended that idea. It takes work and most times a person has to change to become part of the “accepted class.” Hell, I know I did and where I don’t “adjust” I fully accept the consequences. If you feel that everyone and everybody should be welcomed into the accepted class that’s a whole other utopian discussion.
Politically correct posturing in response to being perceived as racist. White folks y’all better be careful or pretty soon everything you do will be tagged as racism by the baiters. If you keep letting them and don’t take a stand at some point eventually even what you don’t do could get you tagged a Klan member…
“We all have bad characters in our groups. Black is not always right, and white is not always wrong. We as Black people, we have a lot of crooks. We can’t just wait until something like (the Michael Brown shooting) happens. We have to look at ourselves in the mirror. There is a reason that they racially profile us in the way they do. Sometimes it is wrong, and sometimes it is right.”
“The notion that white cops are out there just killing Black people is ridiculous. It’s flat-out ridiculous. I challenge any Black person to make that point. Cops are absolutely awesome. They’re the only thing in the ghetto (separating this place) from this place being the Wild, Wild West.”
“I don’t think anytime something bad happens in the Black community we have to talk about slavery. Listen, slavery is, uh, well, I shouldn’t say one of the worst things ever, because I don’t know anything about it other than what I read or what my grandmother told me.”
“For some reason we are brainwashed to think, if you’re not a thug or an idiot, you’re not Black enough. If you go to school, make good grades, speak intelligent, and don’t break the law, you’re not a good Black person. It’s a dirty, dark secret in the Black community.”
Michael Brown and Ferguson
“The true story came out from the grand jury testimony”
“key forensic evidence, and several Black witnesses who supported Officer Darren Wilson’s story … [W]e have to be really careful with the cops, because if it wasn’t for the cops we would be living in the Wild, Wild West in our neighborhoods. We can’t pick out certain incidentals that don’t go our way and act like the cops are all bad. Do you know how bad some of these neighborhoods would be if it wasn’t for the cops?”
Well, I agree with the verdict,” he told CNBC. “I feel sorry that young kid got killed, but they didn’t have enough evidence to charge him. Something clearly went wrong that night — clearly something went wrong — and I feel bad for anybody who loses a kid, but if you looked at the case and you don’t make it — there was some racial profiling, no question about it — but something happened that changed the dynamic of that night. Mr. Zimmerman was wrong to pursue, he was racial profiling, but I think Trayvon Martin — God rest his soul — I think he did flip the switch and started beating the hell out of Mr. Zimmerman. But it was just a bad situation.”
