Franklin Township Middle School Bus Fight Caught On Video, One Arrested As Parents Call For Policy Change


Whenever I see these types of videos I get extremely angry (especially when the perpetrator is black). If the perpetrator walked off the bus and was shot dead by the police for doing wrong some would want to march. Over the top!



To be clear black or white this is wrong, but when black kids are constantly getting into trouble and doing wrong and aren't rebuked publicly ...there is something wrong with the picture.

We Need More Than <i>Glee</i>


I have nothing against gay characters being on TV, but what is troubling is the lack of black, chinese, hispanics and mixed families, etc. They are the new normal. It seems the display of gay families is a dog and pony show. There is nothing extra special about gay families so why so much attention? What is important is the variety of families that exist today (not taking away from gay families)

Alan Clemmons, South Carolina Rep, Admits 'Poorly Considered' Reply To Racist Email On Voter ID Law


It is 2012 and still we are dealing with these types of issues. The only thing racist about the email chain: ""It would be like a swarm of bees going after a watermelon," read the email." Why was the word "watermelon" used? He should have said "honey", but never-the-less this type of behavior/comments is sad and goes to show we still live in a racist society.

Superb idea! Tough love works. When this child is of age (18 and on his on) he can do what he wants. Congratulation to the mom for having the conviction to punish her child without using the belt or calling the police. The child might not like it now but he will eventually appreciate this lesson of love. He will live to see another day with clarity.

Chris Matthews Explodes At Reince Priebus Over 'Race Card': 'Awful,' 'Embarrassment,' 'Garbage' (VIDEO)


Race card? Saying America had overcome its racist past in 2008 when the country elected a black President to me was racist.

He spoke about the numbers when he filled in for Matthews last Friday. The numbers are staggering.

NYPD Gunfire In Empire State Building Shooting Wounded All Nine Bystanders, Says Ray Kelly


Thankfully no lives were lost and they were able to take down the culprit. Not much should be made of the innocent that were shot other than it being a sad situation which happens when you are in a confined area. Interesting that some of those shot will sue. All that they should get is money for their medical bills.

Mitt Romney Makes Birth Certificate Joke


Since Romney went there, ask him the questions. Does he believe President Obama was born in the US and is a Christain. Then ask Romney to produce his tax returns for the last 10 years and give us his thoughts on abortion, equal rights, gay rights and all the othe hot button issues. Let's just get to the meat of things.

Chicago Shootings: At Least 19 Wounded By Gun Violence Thursday, 13 Over 30 Minutes


A possible reason gangs have no fear of police: whenever an arrest is made or a shooting by the police of the OFFENDER the families (only then) come out and sing the praises of the OFFENDER. REALLY????? This is followed by endless stories by the media of police brutaility in poor neighborhoods that are predominately black and brown neighborhoods. After a few marches and lip service on how to make things right the issue fades away but the violence continues.

Lance Armstrong Ends Fight Against USADA, Faces Loss Of 7 Tour De France Titles


Armstrong was built up and then torn down (hubris). I will not believe that no one didn't suspect Armstrong was doping up all the while making him out to be a hero. All the campaigns and endorsments and hoorahs. Children looked up to this guy and no one saw the signs of doping? I bet the signs were there but still he was made a hero and only in the end to be brought down.

Augusta National Adds Condoleezza Rice, Darla Moore As First Two Female Members


Interesting how the club managed to keep its current members realizing it discriminated against women (are any of the men married to foward thinking women or trophy wives).

And some would have us believe there isn't discrimination in the US simply because we have a black president. Think again!
