If black people who make up 13% of the population don't want to be profiled then they should quit committing 50% of the crime in this country.
What everyone should be worried about is that our educational system is creating idiots like Rachel Jeantel.
Very intelligent post nucanuck.
Librul, don't see how you can call the Tea Party ,"racist." Allan West, Bobby Jindal, Nikke Haley, Susan Martinez, Ted Cruz and Marco Rubio are all minorities who are identified with the Tea Party and have been elected to office. I am not a member but I agree with many of the Tea Party positions. I don't think they concentrate on the social issues as much as the impending fiscal crisis we are facing.
Agree 100% with you on Paula Deen. If anyone thinks there is not a double standard then just look at Alan Baldwins comments the other day. Anyone think Capital One is going to fire him?
Terry Stulce once again shows his ignorance of the facts in his diatribe against Dick Cheney. Cheney was never implicated in the Valerie Plame affair and his, "lackey," Scooter Libby, was convicted of lying under oath, not blowing her cover.
On September 7, 2006, Richard Armitage, Colin Powell's Chief Deputy, ADMITTED that he was the person who outed Valerie Plame in an interview with Robert Novak. Sorry Stulcie, once again we hate to confuse you with the facts.
No Mr Toons, the Chattanooga area is full of white trash liberals like you who graduated from Sand Mountain Community College. Go back to Alabama where you belong you sniveling little punk.
So moonkat, when one mentions stupid, it would appear you automatically assume they are talking about black people? Unfortunately there are a lot of poor and stupid white people who vote for the Dimocrats. Nothing racist about saying, poor and stupid, just 2 adjectives that describe white and black people.
Unfortunately they left the ban on literacy tests, overturn that and the Dimocrats would have been a dead party. Poor and stupid people should not be allowed to vote.
Lauren I agree that not allowing wine sales in grocery stores is archaic. However Traders Joe's has stores in Knoxville and Nashville and I would assume Memphis so no wine sales is not the only reason they haven't located in Chattanooga. I would imagine market demographics, particularly family incomes, have something to do with it also.
Even Eugene Robinson of the Washington Post has turned on the Community Agitator.
Geez, even convicted terrorist Bill Ayers has turned on the Community Agitator. Agree with Maximus, time for Clay to move back to that cesspool Alabama, maybe he could be a Professor of Crayons at his alma mater, Sand Mountain Technical School.
