Re: Larry Elder: blacks and republicans

Huey ·
Elder is a disgrace. It's easy for him to excuse the past, since he was born and raised in South Central L.A. instead of the Deep South. He never faced hardcore racism in California, like many faced in Alabama and Mississippi. It's a shame a black man in his 50s can disregard Jim Crow, who was alive to see Martin Luther King and Malcolm X, can still act racially naive.

I share your concern MidLifeMan. But in all fairness, state governments don't have this kind of power.

Lordy, the lack of education round here is frightening. The blackout occurred mbm, not because Niagra Falls stopped falling or dried up. The blackout occurs because the grid is set up to share energy production based on regional needs, switching occurs regularly. The problem arises when the grid is maxed out of its capacity by having too little energy to meet demand, no reserve or backup energy production, and when there are two few sources of energy on which to rely on in the first place.
