Freedom of Speech is one thing but DISRESPECT is another. I dont think the image deserves the riots and killings but I do think the images are insensitive and disrespectful. Many americans do not understand why this is a big deal. Black americans should be more understanding. If the Danish Press publish a cartoon of a black slave hanging from a tree with black 'urban thugs' pointing guns at him, with a caption that read "Bush's Dream come true".... I think my first respose would be to riot.

I agree. But I don't think they understand that violence inspires more violence. Shocking really, considering current global events. There are far more constructive ways of dealing with disrespect. As I said in an earlier post, if African-Americans blew something up or burned something down everytime we were disrespected there would be nothing left of America by now. I hope so... for their sake as well as ours.

I personally view all conflicts in that relationship as normal, not race based. I think that it takes two VERY understanding people to look above race to have a functional relationship. Race topics have come up in those relationships, for me, but since she nor I are racist, they have been discussed without anger/hatred.
