Outstanding point Nmaginate...that is very ironic.

Employers already do that when it comes to hiring people. They do discriminate by your zip code, phone number and address. This was revealed to me by a black HR personel. So I think that this is most likely an acceptable practice that has been going on for decades as a control measure. Our people have made the mistake of confusing the methods with the objectives. As long as we agree on objectives, we should never fall out with each other just because we believe in different methods, or...

It is just beyond me why people see Bobby Brown the way that they do. Considering how most men are in general, he seems about average to me. I don't see where he even got a "bad boy" reputation. And, I don't see him as some gang member thug (considering his "gang", "thug" life ended at age 11); and I don't condone his ever being violent with Whitney or his womanizing, but, even that happened when they were younger and heavily into drugs and alcohol by then, AND Whitney was the first one to...

http://www.google.com/hostedne...88wZU63TGDwD9HE8HP00 There is a very conscious and responsible effort by law enforcement and the media to not make this a seem like a crime motivated by race.

Hunt for Serial Killer Targeting Black Men Hits 3 States. Police say they think a serial killer who is believed to have targeted black men in Michigan is also responsible for three stabbings in Northern Virginia. The suspect is believed to have stabbed five people to death and wounded 10 others in Michigan -- all but two are black. In Virginia, two black men and a dark-complexioned Latino teen are also believed to be the serial killer's latest victims. Leesburg Chief of Police Joseph R.

The person who saw those children killed will NEVER forget that scene. He/She will probably suffer Post Traumatic Stress Syndrome. The babies' faces will never be erased from the brain. Damn!! Satan's going to take over this country to the point it's going to be almost impossible to live here if skin tones are brown to dark brown.
