I hope that these families win their lawsuit because there is no reason, other than spying on these kids, for school officials to even be accessing the webcam just to track where the kids were surfing the internet; the internet history could have been tracked without school officials ever even accessing the webcam, so which ever school officials that were peering at these kids via the webcam did so on purpose; and I can't see anyone other than a peeping tom or phedophile having any desire to...

It's interesting. I applaud the young lady for the level of self-examination. The thing is, though, every society has rules and expectations of its members, and every society seeks to "train" its members to become productive parts of it. Even the simplest hunter-gatherer societies -- people who had no conception of something like a "paycheck" -- did it.

Here is a KEY ISSUE. We must first recognize that the Black Holocaust is not acknowledged in the so-called culture. Here’s what I mean. When people in the mass culture think of the Jewish Holocaust, they’ve seen enough evidence to know that it was a mass scale human murder horror visited upon millions! Yes, it was a horror. When many people in the mass culture think of African Americans, they don’t have the same sense of horror as is evoked by the psychotic German-Jewish Holocaust. Now...

The majority of holocaust/genocide denial is purely out of sheer arrogance and propaganda psychology designed to make the Victims look like liars or exaggerators or that they deserved to be done that way if anyone does believe it is true. It is only a fringe benefit that it also serves as coping mechanism for the descendants of the perpetrators of such primal, sub-human, crimes against humanity to keep them from questioning their "leaders".

It's really more psychology than just plain ignorance. This is one of the latest psych games racists Whites play on Black people and non-racist White people, where they claim to believe that something is racist , or reverse racism or divisive , so that they can shut Black people up about it or so they can dismantle it without any outcry from African America or anyone else.

I suspect that the number of mass killings, like this one, and the countless others in this country, are a result of one of two things or both; under addressed mental illness and drug use. Often it is both, since mentally ill people too often attempt to self-medicate with drugs. Now, particularly, there seems to be drugs out there that we are finding out about too far after-the-fact. For example, look how long people have been using bath salts and K-2 and our legislators are just now...
