“I've no doubt there is racism in this country. However, as far as disrespect is concerned, it's everywhere. We live in a time when disrespect, fits of anger and an unwillingness to compromise are rampant; this, from the top down and the bottom up. There is plenty of shame to go around.”

“Sometimes circumstances warrant suspicion; it's not ALWAYS about profiling.”

greasedog on Oct 28, 2013 at 16:18:58

“@yttika1,
You're right. Sometimes suspicions are warranted. You just forgot to mention that sometimes suspicions ARE NOT warranted and sometimes IT IS about profiling. Now, why would you leave that out? That's the problem isn't it?
There's no problem when suspicions are warranted. The problem comes into play when we consider what should be suspicious and what should not. BEING black should not be a reason for suspicion. I'm a black male. I'm not a criminal nor have I been arrested...ever! I shouldn't be suspected or treated more "suspiciously" than a white man who might be a criminal. Don't you agree? I can not control the color of my skin. All I can control is my own behavior. I'm not nor should I be held responsible for the behavior of another. Holding me responsible for another black person's behavior is the same as considering that all white people hate black people. Some do, others don't. But, i would be wrong to assess that to ALL white people. I shouldn't even be suspicious of them just because they're white right?”

“This "little thing" is just another example of corporation lobbyists trying (and usually succeeding) to control our government. Republicans demonstrate that they are just fine with bloated welfare programs as long as those welfare payments go to well-heeled special interests. Subsidies to big businesses are never cut, and never mentioned. They want to cut Social Security and food stamps instead, because, after all, the little guy isn't part of a Super-PAC.”

“It's a bone of contention because it is a ruse by Republicans to defund the ACA by taking away some of the tax dollars needed to support it. Defunding the ACA, even if it's only piecemeal is what their agenda has been from the beginning.”
