“I'm not sure who invented the concept... It was probably long before recorded history. What I am sure of is that "white" people (Euro-decent) pretty much perfected it. They literally sailed around the world, landing on beaches they regarded as divinely given to them (evidenced by countless historical letters and artifacts, personal diaries and ship logs), set up camp, enslaved the native people among others and didn't leave for centuries, if at all. As an American with mostly Euro heritage I have been keen to keep my eyes open in regards to the history of my people and the effect we have had on the world. The point is to see the past clearly & avoid repeating the same mistakes; something we've failed at, mostly. "This is mine, you can't have it" should be on our money, not "In God We Trust." God has merely been a convenient go to excuse for the rational of whatever injustices we impose in the world, but more commonly upon each other.”

You should go back to square one. A simple dictionary could inform you beyond your very limited idea of what a terrorist is and can be. Good lord, just google it!”

“So what you're saying is that you want to be just like the Islamic terrorists? You want to stoop to their level? I would like to see my home act as if we have any idea what America was meant to be. Just once we should be the country that rises above the whole “vengeance at any price” strategy. Otherwise we end up looking like a larger example of the crime infested areas of our country. Places where one gang shoots up the other, then they retaliate in the name of revenge, and so it goes, back and forth with one gang trying to eliminate the other. All the while innocent, decent people in the neighborhood (or nation) and their children and grandchildren are caught in the cross fire; losing their lives for someone else’s beef. The USA should be aiming a bit higher than the morality of street thugs and terrorists.”

“Whites loved blues and Jazz which led to the hippy stuff. BTW Jimmy invented his style. pure original. Motown may have been put on the map by Blacks but in those day even if 100% of all Blk folks bought albums it wouldn't have given them bilboard top ten results. Its cool to be wrong but please learn a little more about us "white b4you judge...." One <3 ”

“You can't honestly believe that it was soley the Black comminuty that put Motown artists like the Supremes on the Billbord charts? Jimi Henricks was a major part of the phsycadelic 60's. Marvin Gay was played one the regular in my house. Rick James, Donna Summers, and yes even P-Funk! Hip hop was just a product of that. The reason Rap so heavily samples such artist is because they were so popular with EVERYONE.... Opinions a side; you can't argue with the numbers. Even the Beat generation obsesses over Jazz. 1950's....”

“That's such a lame excuse for racism! As a person who has studied American History extensively i can appriciate your comment culturally and institutionally speaking. However, black musicians have mostly received a lot of love from the white consumer community. Even though black artists were exploited in the past (motown, Sammie Davis Jr. etc.), Lauren Hill's generation of artist largely profited from white consumers (like it or not); whether or not they have been able to hold on to their fortunes is another topic (MC Hammer). Blaming a generation of "white" people for sins committed by their fathers/grandfathers is unfair and just as racist as the actions of those she has such bitterness towards.... Besides, there are many "white" Americans whose families didn't even come here until after the Civil Rights Movement (my husband) so judging them according to such a standard isn't fair at all. Her children are from the Marley blood line. She should honor his legacy with a bit more respect.... One Love”

“You're entitled to your opinion ! Black artists did not get support from Whites until the hip hop era came along ! Black  R and B Funk artists from the 1970s were strictly supported by Blacks ! I doubt if many Whites would buy P/Funk's "We Want The Funk"”

“Spitting on someone is the most foul and disrespectful thing you can do to a person. The way she hit that poor man standing behind her shows who the abusive one was. Those men handled her with more respect than she deserved and did what they had to do to end the situation. I don't even think they threw her out she probably fell over after a mild push. She should be glad she wasn't arrested for assaulting an innocent person.”

Toddynho on Oct 29, 2012 at 06:26:25

“Agreed. Those men were truly saints. I doubt I'd be able to have behaved in such a calm under those circumstances. If she had struck me, she'd still be applying make up to this day to cover the unsightly reminder of her deed. And I'm not a tough guy, just someone who can remain super calm until a hand is laid on me, that is.”

“My grandfather said the same thing to us girls growing up. He would never hit a woman either. He was just giving good advice, as was your father. Its not that a man should hit a woman ever, but if she hits a man she should be prepared for whatever happens next. Not all men would have reacted as these did. She could have been seriously hurt if they were the type to hit women. In my opinion they seemed to deal with it the only way possible. Your Dad sounds like he was a smart and decent man.”

“exactly why proper "sex ed" and good communication between parents and their kids is essential. There's no 100% fix for teen pregnency. All I'm saying is that teaching abstinance rather than safe sex is the exact wrong approach. We were taught safe sex in my school and I never even considered unprotected sex. Not even with long term boyfriends. So while these cases will still occur i do believe that with the right education many can be prevented before it gets to the crisis point as was the case here.”

“I really hope that your first statement is sarcasm, because while many psychopaths are promiscuous that doesn't mean that just because society considers you too sexually active you must be crazy! While you are correct about the availibility of "the pill" and other forms of birth control, that is more true for adults than teens. In many places they are not taught how to aquire such things and many actually believe that they can't get it w/o mom or dad's permision. I hope that u aren't foolish enough to think that safe sex is a 100% fool proof way to prevent pregnancy.  I appriciate your history of female reproductive rights but your "ananlysis" of this case needs to go beyond law and science. Children are more complicated than that. Maybe you are from a place removed enough from the insanity of "bible belt" sex ed. If so you should realize that many factors influence this type of situation, and maybe it is impossible for you to understand this tragedy in a complete and unbiased way..... Psychopaths? Sounds a little psycho to me.....”

“So basically you have over extended your daughter just like so many other parents who think that constant extra cirricular activities will keep their kids "on the right track." On top of that you are teaching her to judge people with superficial preconceived ideas of what good and bad people look like. A tattoo does not make a loser! Just because someone looks safe doesn't mean they are. Before you judge this poor man who lost a child you should be informed that your style of parenting leaves much to be desired. Don't be so sure that you have created a bubble for your daughter that keeps out all ugliness. A 4.0 and a harvard degree doesn't mean your child will be ok. In fact there are many harvard grads out there with little to no respect for other human beings. I caution you to be wary of your own faults before you throw stones. Self-rightiousness is not a winning attribute... As a parent you should have a bit more compassion for a father with a dead child....”

“Good thing "abstinance" is taught in school instead of safe sex. If these children were properly educated on how to prevent pregnancy and how to handle the situation if it happens, these situations would be rare. Maybe she was in denial and when it finally happened she lost rational thought. I feel sorry for her and my heart breaks for the little baby that never got to experience love and comfort from its mother. However, there are many out there that would rather blame the girl than the community that is responsible for educating their children properly. Wake up people. Kids have sex! Now help them be safe about it!!!!!”

“Psychopaths are promiscuous.
condoms are readily available everywhere.
It's wayyy past the 1960's, against which the Roe v Wade case arose from, when The Pill had just been invented & there was only 1 "Pill", no "morning after" pill, no 15 different birth control pill formulations allowing a woman to control her menstruation timing from once monthly to once quarterly to once yearly. Heck, when Roe v Wade hit the US Sup Ct, IUDs were still experimental !
There's literally no reason to have an unwanted pregnancy - not these days, & not for the past 30 yrs. or more.”

It wasn't that long ago that just being obese could get you a job at the freak show, now obese people are common.

“There is a good reason for the laws that protect Americans that may or may not be metally ill. Of course there will always be cases like this, that make us think we could've prevented them. Unfortunately, there is no way to say for certain. The laws exist to prevent citizens from being unlawfully detained for unjust reasons. Many people in the past (especially women) were committed by spouses or family with sinister motive. I don't look forward to the day people can be committed on the word of one or two untrained bias individuals.
