“Whatever, I am an American black guy. Went to Zurich as a tourist and was immediately stopped by two police persons, had my papers checked and sent on my way, as one of the police man kept his hand close to his gun. I was a tourist, just walking around checking out the city. What was the point of that??? (I'm glad the whole thing was brought to light, one way or another). Still liked Zurich, but a few of your residence have an issue with other people. Just saying...”

“It happens to me from time to time. I'm not white, they're just like that. Maybe cultural, maybe personal. It's like encountering some Mexican gang members in East LA and we just assume that every one of them belong to a gang. Unfortunately, some bad apples always taint the entire bushel.”

“You probably looked suspicious. Stop and Frisk here.”
“She's clearly not well. I don't understand why the rest of the student body was laughing and surrounding here. Campus police should have been called immediately (instead of taking out their camera phones for 'Youtube') and she should have been escorted out of the room. It was poorly handled. The yelling, raising your phone higher than her and laughing at her does not make the situation any better.
What should have been done: Campus security should have been called, everyone should have gone quietly to the back of the class room near the exit, leaving her standing alone. If she approached anyone, then they should have evacuated the room and locked her in there until security arrived.”

“I didn't watch the video b/c I can't at this point, but that is very sad, I agree. My 28-year old son died on January 4 this year. He was mentally and physically not well. Our society, by and large, still believes mental illnesses are a sign of personal weakness and most people stay as far away as possible. I think just about every family has someone with mental issues, but many do not want to recognize that. Kind of like, "if I don't go to the shrink then I must not be crazy, right? "”
“The word awesome is constantly tossed around with little adherence to its actual meaning. Awesome: "profoundly reverential," from awe + -some. Meaning "inspiring awe." Donna Karlson is every bit an awesome teacher and friend.”
“I completely agree with you, but so do the Palestinians. And we should be as equally dutiful to defend their rights to have a place/home in the world.
I understand, you forgot that part that's why I wrote it for you.
Very good point.”

“We have supported the right to a state for the Palestinians. They don't want one. Every time an agreement is reached and Israel gives up land the Palestinians move in and attack Israel.
The Palestinians could have had a state from the beginning but they refused to share the land with Israel.”
“My questioin to you is why do you think darker skin women are more prone to "unleash dysfunction and misdirected angst" ?
Why would "women who are lighter simply treat black men better on average? With love and respect?" more so than darker women?
They are just two question for you. All I'm looking for is to hear your logic behind these ideas.”

“medium-colored brown skinned woman here...(sorry, all these categories, i'm just trying to give you a visual)
perhaps because DARKER people are treated with more DISRESPECT than LIGHTER ones, throught history, including TODAY...thus making them defensive/angry/bitter...it's not THEIR fault...it's society's...BUT it's up to THEM to rise above it all...to understand the 'reasons why', as much as they can...i think Michelle's a good example of that...strong yet SO LOVING...she's figured it out...and it's ALSO UP TO THE MEN/WOMEN who criticize these darker skinned people to UNDERSTAND where it's coming from...and not lash out and pick a white person BECAUSE of it...”

“If they ever post my response, as controversially truthful as it may be, you'll learn why.”
