Young Americans no longer have any sort of idea about how to fix racial tensions and problems in the black community, says Shelby Steele, senior fellow at Stanford University’s Hoover Institution.

Applying The Ethics Alarms 12 Question Protest Ethics Checklist To The George Floyd Freak-Out, And A Thirteenth Question
Gee whiz.. funny that the people of America do not like watching one of their citizens murdered on tv. Maybe the 14th question should be; do you like watching that? DO YOU? DO YOU LIKE WATCHING THAT? Yes or No.

After reading your reply to my comment; I could assume that you read the whole thing and you’re education, such as it was way back then, was terribly inadequate and didn’t teach you the required skills you need to comprehend what you read; but I really do try not to make assumptions like that, soooooo…….
Admit it, Richard, you didn’t read it what I linked to.
Friends don’t let friends post comments drunk; do you have any friends that can change the password on your computer so you can stop projecting your foolishness online.

Heh! You’ve said it before, The Gotch will say it again:
‘The Difference Between Stupidity And Genius Is That Genius Has Its Limits’ A. Einstein
Yes; I read the Marshall article and agree with some of it, but I stand by my comment. You reprinted my question, but never answered it. WHY? YES OR NO. You can’t answer it because your a what? Coward to make your views known? Your just like gotch; no answer so go to the insults. Call into question my education? Claim I am drunk? What’s next; posting pics of where I live? That’s been done by gotch so old news. Maybe meeting with Dave on one of gotch’s 3 decks so you can figure out a way to ban me again? Try sending me a hate letter like I have gotten in the past. Again old news. I thought you were one of the smart ones on this blog; wrong again. Why am I seen as such a threat to you guys? Am I rocking your little conservative boat?
but murdering them “not on tv” is ok with you lefties. Justine Damond?
Hmmmm…maybe it’s some other factor than “not on tv”
Several things can be true at once; cops do murder citizens, there’s no evidence police kill blacks more than whites, and Pinochet did nothing wrong.
Honestly, I don’t understand what this comment is supposed to mean. Do you really think protesting (rioting, etc.) is to prove we don’t LIKE something? That’s the value of protesting to you? Americans are supposed to hit the streets every time they see something on TV they don’t like? I’m pretty sure the Founders intended the right to protest for more substantive purposes, but if tantrums and hissy-fits are good enough for you, have fun.

Shelby Steele, Walter Williams, Thomas Sowell, Bob Woodson, Glen Lowry. Condi Rice, Kay Cole James.
People who lived real racism, Jim Crow, separate water fountains, bathrooms, etc.
If we could somehow get people to listen to real intelligence, intellectuals, with real experience, ideas not feel good platitudes, maybe we could see real progress.
But as long as the Leftists own K thru 12, Universities, the Arts, the Media, Sports, Entertainment, major cities and states, nothing will change. Leftism is a disease, far more virulent than Covid. They must die off, for there to be real change.

THE LIBERAL MIND: The Psychological Causes of Political Madness (Lyle H. Rossiter, Jr., M.D.)
“The radical left’s efforts to regulate the people from cradle to grave. To rescue us from our troubled lives, the liberal agenda:
*recommends denial of personal responsibility,
*encourages self-pity and other-pity,
*fosters government dependency,
*promotes sexual indulgence,
*excuses financial obligation,
*prescribes complaining and blaming,
*denigrates marriage and the family,
*legalizes all abortion,
*defies religious and social tradition,
*declares inequality unjust, and
*rebels against the duties of citizenship.
“Through multiple entitlements to unearned goods, services and social status, the liberal politician promises to ensure everyone’s material welfare, provide for everyone’s healthcare, protect everyone’s self-esteem, correct everyone’s social and political disadvantage, educate every citizen, and eliminate all class distinctions.
“Radical liberalism thus assaults the foundations of civilized freedom. Given its irrational goals, coercive methods and historical failures, and given its perverse effects on character development, there can be no question of the radical agenda’s madness.
“Only an irrational agenda would advocate a systematic destruction of the foundations on which ordered liberty depends.”

Steer your lefty and anti-Trump friends to take this test for Acute Propaganda-Induced Anti-Trump Hysteria Syndrome
Do I believe in APIATHS; yep. Trump is a deranged lying coward. Why are you promoting what you publish on another guys blog?
The people of America haven’t watched the video of SO MANY of their citizens get slaughtered/murdered on T.V.; nearly all in generationally D卐M☭CRAT run Lefty $#!tholes!
Any Lefty care to venture a wild guess by whom?
Didn’t think so.
Can You Please Get Them? asks a FIVE YEAR OLD GIRL Shot In The Leg In Lefty-Centric Chicago!
Ah Lefty; so MUCH crippling societal failure, so little time!
My wild guess would be a couple of RWNJ’s from Ohio that the “protesters” in NY saw as a little odd and called the cops on them. Result; a trunk from of weapons, explosives, etc. that they were going to use to incite violence and blame on others. Remember walker’s famous quote “divide and conquer” was at one time a Nazi slogan. Have you dropped to such a low level that you are now spelling democrat with a Nazi symbol? Your hatred for the two party system is showing.
Poor Richard illustrates Shelby Steele’s point very well. He’s got no deck cause someone else has three. Not his fault though. A man is killed, not murdered, on TV and somehow richard is justified in his mental chaos and general anger.
The duplicity, that a black life matters more when a cop kills him is ridiculous. But black victimhood pays well in Mad Town. How much public money will go to Brandi Grayson to sell BLM in the schools?
Hey Satya et. al…. keep the money, here is the BLM curriculum. ‘Black good. White bad but RAYcism only goes in one direction. You are a victim or an oppressor. Victims are forgiven personal failure. The failing school grades of blacks is because they don’t want to act “white”. It proves Systemic RAYcism. Black folk’ anger is justified, appreciated by some oppressors and somedays mandatory. Now watch this short video of how to wreck a school board meeting and then apply the lesson to your class room behavior.

No decks; BWAWAHAHAHAHAHAAA!!!
Put another way:
Waaaaah waaaaaaah waaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah…someone else deferred gratification and EARNED something I was too lazy/too STOOPID to work for.
Social Justice and Emotional Truth suggest, nay demand, that my laziness/STOOPIDITY have no consequence; I’m ENTITLED to the fruits of their labor because…welp…just because!
Whaddya know; someone from all the way out in D.C., and a professional ethicist to boot, takes time out of his horrendously busy day to point out the crippling imbecility painfully, yet consistently, displayed by a participant who completely lacks the capacity to do anything else.
“if tantrums and hissy-fits are good enough for you, have fun.
