“What do you mean, "I've heard". Anyone who is interested in the truth would be educating themselves by listening to all information then determining the truth. Fox News isn't allowed in Canada because it provides less facts and more propaganda. Educate yourself!!”
“Those who choose to critique Gabby's hair have most likely accomplished little in their own lives other than maintaining their appearance. They probably have no insight into what it took for Gabby to reach her goals. If their focus is cosmetic, their lives are most likely just as shallow.”
“If he could not have acquired the guns under our gun laws, he would not have killed those innocent people. Look at the laws - call those lawmakers, lobbists and profiting corporations names, then change those son of a b__________ laws.”
“It's a ploy, a Fox ploy. Those at Fox know who their audience is. They appeal to that audience. Those persons I know who watch Fox News and deem it as "the gospel" are primarily prejudiced, bigoted and otherwise very limited in knowledge of anything other than what Fox spews out.”
“We are all the same in God's eyes, as all you Christian's know. Take his robe off and underneath he is just a man. "Judge not that you may not be judged". I hope all the GOP Christians keep that scriipture in mind!”
“The Torrance profiling complaints do not surprise me. I've been a Torrance resident almost 10 years along with three bi-racial grandsons. I cannot count how many times these boys have been profiled.
Each one has been stopped numerous times, in broad daylight, while walking to the local party store with a friend or just walking down the street. They are questioned, frisked, then let go.
On several occasions, the oldest grandson was stopped and frisked while riding a bike home from his after school job.
On another occasion, I looked out our front window and my grandson was sitting on the curb with two policemen standing over him. They explained to me they didn't know he lived in the neighborhood.
In the past I've instructed my grandsons to get a badge number or a name but they don't want to make things worse for themselves. They tell me: " Grandma, we have to live here."
What message are the policemen conveying to these adolescents?
Plus, over the years I've observed many motorists being pulled over by a cop on 190th Street. I'd estimate that ninety percent of the time the driver is a person of color”

“My late husband was black, and just a couple of summers ago, his cousins came to visit us in MN from CO. On their way back, as they neared Denver, They were stopped by the police and held for hours as the police brought in dogs to search the car and argued with them over whether their rental papers were in order. When it was finally clear to them that they weren't able to charge them with anything, the let them go saying something like "Nothing personal, have a nice day"”
