This is the point I'm trying to counter. How does a black community relent to police vigilanteism, while accepting/condoning legislative limits on our cultural practice of raising our children?
Seems to me like they don't want us to raise our children. The only remedy they have for blacks is some form alienation from flourishing, living and loving life in a black community. Whether it be fostercare (no disrespect to jazzdog... one of the exceptions), or jail/prison.
In my experience (5yrs of my elmentary adolescence), these foster parents are emotionally disinterested/detached from the childs psychosocial and emotional development.
You in particular have a wierd affinity for policemen, and you constantly justify thier tactics, or come to their defense when they've done something questionable. My only problem with police/legislation/judges/lawyers, is that they are not only justifiably the opposition to the true criminals in the black community, but they are the opposition to the law abiding citizens as well. Do you not feel that the relationship between (law-abiding) blacks and police is incompatible? Do you think we honestly share the same interests? Are you not suspicious of an ulterior motive?
