Guns do not make you a killer. I think killing makes you a killer. You can kill someone with a baseball bat or a car, but no one is trying to ban you from driving to the ball game.
guns make killing easier... driveby batting isn't as effective.
I don't think being a minority makes you a victim of anything except numbers. The only things I can think of that are truly discriminatory are things like the United Negro College Fund, Jet Magazine, Black Entertainment Television, and Miss Black America.
this said from a white guy... heh..
discrimination starting from an early age will affect one as an adult. being a non-white kid in an all white school was devastating.
When 70% of the people who get arrested are black, in cities where 70% of the population is black, that is not racial profiling, it is the Law of Probability.
south atlanta, why is that a black neighborhood and why is it a high crime area? poverty is the usual cause for high crime. add discrimination and you add to this problem.
I think the police should have every right to shoot your sorry ass if you threaten them after they tell you to stop. If you can't understand the word "freeze" or "stop" in English, see the above lines.
white LA cop telling a black or hispanic man to stop? i guess andy hasn't been reading about the LA police corruptions in the last century. (planting evidence, false arrest with no charges, and the common practice of beating suspects into confession or just for the helluvit).
I am sick of "Political Correctness." I know a lot of black people, and not a single one of them was born in Africa; so how can they be "African-Americans"? Besides, Africa is a continent. I don't go around saying I am a European-American because my great, great, great, great, great, great grandfather was from Europe. I am proud to be from America and nowhere else
it's called self-esteem. this is what's needed to pull minorities into respectability. no need to use european-american, whites are already the majority in power.
I don't think just because you were not born in this country, you are qualified for any special loan programs, government sponsored bank loans or tax breaks, etc., so you can open a hotel, coffee shop, trinket store, or any other business.
i disagree. if a foreign company wants to employ american citizens, then they should get a tax break or incentives. bring the jobs back to the U.S.
I believe that if you are selling me a milkshake, a pack of cigarettes, a newspaper or a hotel room, you must do it in English! As a matter of fact, if you want to be an American citizen, you should have to speak English!
this i do agree with...
...but Andy is still a d*ck.
i prefer Bill O'Rielly
