“The United States is still the LETHALLY racist country and it won't change any time soon. Racism is perpetuated by the PROFOUNDLY ignorant Republican voting block. The result of poor education and destructive learned behavior. RACISM is learned behavior.”

“@Victoria M., you can't have anything against Clay Akien, you don' know him. Just because he was your mom's pal or whatever doesn't mean he would have be the BEST choice. It's not about being nice; it's about getting the people's business done.”
“Never bought her Not-Guilty! Amanda Knox is the murderer; there is not anyone or anything that would make me change my mind; she was sooo JEALOUS of that Kercher girl that she murdered her in cold-blood; the sad unjust part is that she is NOT doing any prison time; running around the country all carefree; horrific! Why? Because of the incompetency within the Italian system, the bully US government, and its Media machine. Notwithstanding, if Knox were a Black woman, she'd still be in prison where she belongs.”

“Soooo the fact that there is zero physical evidence. Zero. in a violent murder where the victim fought back, connecting Knox to the murder, that wouldn't change your mind.... Please don't serve on a jury ever. For anything. You are not competent enough for it.
How about the fact that this isn't new tape. Both the prosecution and defense had it in the first trial and neither used it because it couldn't prove anything. Still not getting through to you? Of course not. Nothing, like lack of evidence and the discrediting of this "new" photo evidence that they always knew about. and you're sure. Thanks Detective McGruff, but we'll let the professionals take it from here.”
“@Maurice, thank you for taking time to extend us your detail response; excellent! Many of HuffPost responders reside in the US. The US is the shameless vortex of hypocrisy. Interestingly and true to life/nature, the US is always exhaustively busy attempting to fix everyone's house (countries around the world; Ukraine, Iraq, Afghan). except its' own!”
“Ahhh don't forget how GHETTO and THUGGISH it is too - poor public transportation! Yes, those quality schools are there; however, one wonders as the IGNORANCE in that city is PERVASIVE at all levels. DEEPLY segregated city!”
“ATL is among the WORST cities in the US! Ghetto! Ghetto! Ghetto! CRIME is through the ceiling; overpriced and exhaustively rude people; HORRIFIC public transportation. Moreover, poor compensation and unilaterally the most DEPRESSING city with ZERO economic outlook. RACIST too! Do NOT trust this Article; NOT at all!”

“This doesn't make any sense to me; why are these people paid these ridiculous sums of money and the President can't get McDonald's to pay workers in hot kitchen, getting burnt, falling on greasy floors, and scrubbing filthy toilets to receive the Minimum Wage of $10:10/hr. ??? This country's GREED is DESPICABLE!”

“O.K. not much disrespect! But, you must be really pissed at sport's folks, like baseball and basketball players. Must be angry as heck at celebrities, performers. This country does exactly what its citizens demand or agree for them to do and will pay. What is the line must used? "Don't hate the player, hate the game!" Don't make anything and I don't blame those who do for my situation or others. This country is no different from any other, fact be known by those who know their history, it is better than many other countries. It is the only country where someone can possibly dream of making above minimum wage $7.25 an hour or a bit more and have a chance to do that. Think all those you despise for what they earn were born making that kind of money???? Right! Whatever it was time, timing, preparation, luck, fortune, who they knew, what they knew, skill, education. etc. They are earning what other are willing to pay them and apparently can pay them. Enjoy your weekend.”

“If you want to earn more than minimum wage get an education and EARN it. When our military personnel are paid what they are worth then we can discuss paying people for jobs created for TEENAGERS wtihout families.”

“Blame the ones from the Right for the pitiful minimum wage scale. They refuse to compromise on raising it from a mere $7.25 per hour......”

“President Obama is seeking to raise the national minimum wage scale to atleast $10.10 p.h. BUT those republicans are standing in the way, they refuse to compromise on raising the minimum wage scale..Our neighbor, Canada, has had a wage scale equivalent to over $10 p.h. while our's is stuck at a pitiful $7.25 per hour. Along with refusing to raise the minimum wage, those repubs are also against collective bargaining rights that protect the american workers from employer abuse/discrimination, fair wages, fair working conditions, etc., etc., Big companies may find it to be more profitable to bankiroll their ole' pals from the Right, then pay a fair wage.....Another opinion, if those righties have complete control it wouldn't be too long until our country is on the list of Third World Nations.....”
“Obama even though I regrettably voted for you back in 2012 (you are among the WORST Presidents...ever) I didn't vote for you to be the ABUSER of 'Executive Orders' to BULLY countries. NOTE: The 'Executive Order' is to be used for the United States, NOT to BULLY Russia. Who are you to be involved in Russia's business? Your FOCUS must be on the American agenda, NOT Russia and Ukraine.”
“This doesn't have ANYTHING to do with how men treat women. NO, it doesn't. Women MUST take accountability for their own behavior and know that the outcome is based on their own consciousness (Lindsay Lohan). STOP blaming men for everything for God sakes. OMG!”

“"STOP blaming men for everything for God sakes. OMG!"
Good luck with that!!!! I happen to agree. Rarely, and I do mean rarely, do I observe women taking ownership for their actions.
Here is a prime example:
Woman decides to sleep with a bad boy/athlete. Afterwards, she has buyers remorse or feel shame. Whatever. Instead of owning up to having made a bad decision and moving on with her life, we get "well I was going through a terrible phase in my life......". In other words, I am not responsible for my conduct. Hence, I deserve a free pass.
Hey, if you want to have sex with the big man on campus, go ahead! Have at it!!!! But, please do not make any excuses why you did so!”
