Re: “Now will we act?

Funny how you can see "dislikes" but no logical reasons or cogent arguments. All emotion, no brain from the emotional ivory tower or those who benefit from crying "I'm a victim."

Re: “Now will we act?

The "segregation" is VOLUNTARY, NOT imposed! People of all skin colors get fed up with intimidation and violence and move and the rest get left behind - just like pouring off water in a bucket and the mud is left.

The "bad" neighborhoods were good before, but houses get rented and the most renters trash them (tearing screens, breaking windows, tearing down blinds and curtains, stealing pipes, damaging walls, breaking porch railings and more). Outside they drop trash and don't pick it up, don't mow lawns, don't pull weeds, don't plant flowers, don't clip bushes, fight in the streets, allow drugs to be dealt and don't do anything about it, and play music that glorifies violence/abuse/misogyny/drug dealing and more. You fill your mind with crap and what do you expect??

But no one wants to put blame where it belongs. Certain people are so riddled with unjustified guilt about their color or upbringing that they won't say it like it is. You feel so bad? Then YOU sell everything, give it to whoever you think you can help, and move into these neighborhoods and see it for what it IS, not what you IMAGINE it is.

Poverty DOES NOT cause this or we never would have made it out of the Great Depression. It is poverty of the mind and the soul and the willingness to let the crab bucket pull you down.

In "good" neighborhoods, that s**t isn't tolerated and people (including renters) take pride in where they live and call the cops when stuff looks sketchy instead of letting it slide.

I am urban by choice and POOR and have watched this for 30 years and I don't live in some ivory tower suburban neighborhood and I HAVE HAD IT WITH THE EXCUSES.

It's SIN, plain and simple. People are NOT basically good and only God can help us now, but the clergy are too busy living high off the hog, posturing for the people and praying to the cameras to do their job.

Re: “WEEK AHEAD: Events for the week of Monday, August 24

Sheesh, what about chickens? That's an offensive caricature of roosters, too. Or let's just scrub all depictions of blacks from all art-it might be "offensive." Or let's make some equivalent matching-sized replacement parts painted to be "white" children and carefully put them over the black parts and everyone can now say how cute it is.

United "Christian" Leadership Ministry needs to stop "majoring on the minors" and focus on the reality of slavery of blacks (and others) by Muslims that is happening TODAY and the slaughter of black Christians all over north Africa. THAT is important, THIS is PETTY. Put your energy into something that is IMPORTANT and will make a positive difference in the lives of those suffering and dying NOW.
