    Nah, it's way more fun to act like you for a bit, childish and no ability accept that not everyone has a favorable opinion of the president or his actions.

    Proud of the wife and the youngest daughter. Joined together to peacefully address the local courthouse for criminal justice reform and police brutality. See, a conservative police officers liberal wife can do these things without me getting upset. I support her right to peacefully protest.

    Furthermore, I see throughout all sorts of threads you slamming and saying some pretty heinous stuff about the Obama's, Clinton's and democrats in general. I mean backwards *** proven to be all out falsehood stuff. Yet, I just let it go, you dont care for them and that's okay but the second I say something in a similar nature, you pipe up with the dislikes and some pointless mindnumbing dribble. It's my opinion and nothing more, not sorry you dont like it.

    I respect your story of being a self made man. It resonates with my own story. That being said I don't have a negative view of failure. I'm constantly reminding daughter not to be afraid of failure. The path to greatness is paved with failures. It is the ability to learn from, pull yourself up from and press on despite your failure that makes people great.

    Lets see Is it that Obama is a race baiter...Or Clinton is a lying crook because sir, there are documents and speeches ( world wide) that prove these things. Want do go back through and see and read what credible staff members have disclosed while both were in office and she was the first,cough,cough, lady. Now lets not discount the discoveries in the on going investigations thats not fake news.
    I can see why you'd let it go..lol

    Oh, we've had failures and setbacks and yes learned from them. But I wasnt given money at any point in my life and we never scammed good hardworking folks out of money.

    Really poor white trash? There it is in full display your sad sorry personal , intellectual failings. You may have raised yourself from poverty or what ever you deem as poor, but you certainly never raised your self up out of a depth of ignorance.

    Your right virginiashadow. This is not fair to the rest of the members on this site and I will not respond to further personal attacks.
    Though This being a vent thread, I wont be bullied into political silence.

    You're better and smarter than that.
    Black Americans are statistically exponentially much more more likely to live in high crime areas and unfortunately to commit (and be victims of) crimes of violence compared to other races. That's a separate issue than is police brutality.

    Where are the police expected to patrol? High crime areas. Which racial demographic are they more likely going to encounter? That's not profiling; that's math. Math isn't racist or biased.

    The fact that the rates of police shootings in general, especially of unarmed minorities are so low is actually commendable. Something like 5% of police involved shootings involve an unarmed subject of any race. Blacks are involved less than half of that 5%. And just because a subject is not armed does not mean they are non-combative or pose a deadly threat (see Brown, Michael; Ferguson MO.)

    Of course, that doesn't apply to the case of Mr. Floyd. But for people to conflate that with this mythical wave of mass genocide being committed by police is disgusting and easily refuted by the numbers.
