Beyond Stop-and-Frisk: Toward Policing That Works Scott Stringer April 23, 2012 In the aftermath of the Trayvon Martin killing, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg rightly and forcefully condemned the “Stand Your Ground” law in Florida that encouraged self-appointed crime-stopper George Zimmerman to shoot first and ask questions later.

The Confederate Flag is a symbol of the Slave-Holding South. Mississippi and South Carolina need the flags flying to remind of the days they could brutalize Africans with no repercussions. Just beat the shit out of folks to have them do ANYTHING you wanted them to do.

Yep! This is correct. However, the world did notice the genocide in Rwanda. But by the time, they recognized what was going on hundreds of thousands were murdered and left on the streets decaying.

Re: Dear Fox News: Please Stop Using Asians To Attack Black People

The article's argument is pretty illogical. The notion of privilege is having the status higher than someone else or having power someone else doesn't. By that definition there is something called Asian Privilege, if they have more wealth than us, more education than us, less arrests than us, and etc. The reason why White conservatives are comparing Asians to themselves to us is because they are saying...

The premise of the article is that it is illogical to compare the Asian American experience to the African American experience to begin with, let alone only comparing the negatives withing African America to only the positives withing Asian America. White privilege has more to do with sheer racism and racist attitudes than it does with wealth, status, or even whether or not a person has been arrested. This is evidenced by the fact that no matter the wealth, status or even a spotless arrest...

Re: The Electoral College Was Designed To Prevent Trump. You Can Make This Happen.

I think the most troubling is how some electoral colleges are forced to vote for the state's choice. For example if the electoral college is a red state that favors Trump, it is expected to vote for Trump. And visa versa-making it unfair for individual voting. Although Obama recommended Clinton concede early when it was clear Trump was winning, that move was extremely pre-mature as we see now. It is my hope that Clinton readdresses the vote count in those rust states that appears to be a...
