The sad part about it is TWO PARTS: 1) So many of us PROVE THEM WRONG - per the incidents in Milwaukee, DC and where the beatdown took place and worst of all 2) Black people like YOU will go out of their way to DEFEND them. They will begin to understand how things work. They do whatever and then count on the "Slavery Did It" crowd like you to defend their actions. The SAMBO music that put forth certain messages only reinforces this. Kevin - Let me ask you - which FORCE do you think plays a...
