When is America going to wake up to the fact that prejudice and racial hatred is alive and happening still after all these years and something NEEDS to be done about curtailing and preventing it? Either by more education in school systems or churches.
I think Americans are aware there is racial prejudice and racial hatred, and that it cuts in multiple directions and by individuals of every race. What to do about it is the question. When we see leaders (of any race!) making excuses for racist behavior by someone (of any race!) it does not help anyone, and arguably hurts everyone. When we see leaders (of any race!) minimize or overlook bad primary behavior by emphasizing secondary racial behaviors it flames racial divides and ends up making racial problems worse.
We need more leadership. At the end of the day resolving racial prejudice and hatred will likely find resolution the way most societal woes are ultimately tamed. It will be left to slowly find whatever equilibrium it ultimately finds the result of people getting tired of suffering it causes and taking individual steps toward resolution.
And when is America going to wake up to the fact that yes- we may have the right to bear arms - but does that include bat shit crazy mentally insane people ? In my opinion, no it does NOT. So many random shootings killing multiple people have occurred over the last 15 to 20 years you would think we are living in a f&cking war zone. All over the United States. This crime last night saddens me deeply but it pisses me off like hell.
I believe in a citizen's right to have firearms. I also believe in a citizen's right to drive an automobile. My opinion is that in each case a citizen should have to demonstrate competency and be licensed accordingly. Having a license is not removing a right; it's protecting the citizenry.
