    @bondsbw: This sums everything up very nicely. Thanks!

    Absolutely. Well stated!

    I actually really want to see legalization of marijuana, just so those ppl can shut up and whine more about cocaine and other drugs. And then, legalize all those drugs one by one until all drugs are legal. And then, we can finally move onto unregistered fire arms. Then, after that, we can focus on equal rights on robberies.

    Portugal, research Portugal and see how you are dead wrong.

    Where did I say it was an excuse for tolerance of racism? If anything, you've proven my point.

    Your attitude is combative. That sucks. If you want to be scholarly, xenophobia is your research topic.

    C. G. Jung said that, paraphrased, starting with your momma's skirt, your identity expands in wider circles, family, extended family, social circles, race, location, nationality, etc... And these circles are natural, just as a child hides behind his mother when strangers call. That is a natural form of what effectively becomes racism as the circles are reinforced with bad laws. This is a natural tendency that we all have to consciously address. All of us. Do you understand or not? Are you going to start complaining because you're white now? Good grief.

    Right now, we have a climate where, it is assumed that because a person is of certain races, they are incapable of racism.

    Other races are assumed to automatically be racist. Denying that makes you a racist. Every word out of your mouth is determined to somehow have racist subtexts. Your very existence is a racist act.

    Bull crap. That tired excuse for apathy and tolerance of racism is unacceptable. You're fired.

    Racism doesn't have to be overt to exist.

    @magicalclick:I disagree. Take Portugal as an example of exactly this. After decriminalizing all drugs, their crime rate is down across the board, incarceration rates have dropped significantly, and most telling of all, their addiction rate has fallen by HALF. So the argument is lost. The WoD is a war against the poor, affected as a race war. It's not popular, just entrenched and profitable for those who tell you it's popular. It's not popular with any but the senile.

    What with this and Richard's posts... is Channel 9 becoming self aware?

    That makes me wrong, then, doesn't it?

    No, and I would never use Google as my background or screensaver.  +!
