It sure is, that the media keeps fanning the flames of racism. Can't have identity politics without it. Can't keep people divided without it. ABC sucks.

Not nearly as often as you think, or have been told to think.

@jufa,
I have seen this happen... with my sons. I am white, my sons are not. They get followed around in stores. Their white friends do not. It is pretty upsetting to a preteen boy.

Incidentally, progressive White women are also a problem.

When my son was 15, he asked me to walk behind him down a walking path in Cambridge Massachusetts between a residential area where we lived and public transportation. Sure enough, women would clutch their purses and move to the other side as he simply walked down the path. It was upsetting enough to him, as a teenaged boy, that he wanted me to see it.

There is a bit of liberal hypocrisy here. In particular feminism gives license to White women to see boys of color as a threat to their safety.

Yes, this is a big problem, particularly for boys of color.

@jufa,
The television show "What Would You Do" is a great show. I use to watch that show every week on ABC a few years ago. I don't think it's still on the air. You can find many of the episodes on youtube.

@Real Music,
The worse of this, it is and intricate part of the of this countries psychic on both sides, and it really serves no purpose in the overall scheme of life.

@jufa,
Why keep reading what others say if we cannot stand on our belief? Why keep asking question when our belief has stabilized us to the knowledge of that belief? Why do we have a change of mind concerning this or that if we believe it is what it is, and nothing we do can change it, of should be our belief is permanent?

To stand by and see injustice being done and do nothing is to give approval. There is no such things as "It wasn't my place to say or do anything." or "it does not personally affect me." We are all tied together. "No man is an island entire of itself; every man is a piece of the continent, a part of the main."

Angela Y. Davis stated: "If they come for me in the morning, they will come for you in the night." Martin Niemoller told what happens when people will not step to the plate and participate for justice.
"First they came for the communist and I did not speak out because I was not a communist;
Then they came for the socialist and I did not speak out because I was not a socialist;
They they came for the trade unionist and I did not speak out because I was not a trade unionist;
Then they came for the Jew and I did not speak out because I was not a Jew;
Then they came for me and there was no one left to speak out for me."

We can change this. We can change all the plotting which has torn this country apart because of laws, ordinances, and rule initiated by prejudicial banners, slogans, and buttons of commitments to times long gone, yet still feeds our minds, and imaginations with the noise of the opposition of their Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde personalities, we display when we feel "those people" are trying to take over our country.

If you think and believe it doesn't matter whether you do something to change, then you BOZO THE CLOWN have been dubbed correctly when called STUPID.

Never give power to anything a person believes is their source of strength - jufa

@edgarblythe,
I kind of agree with the sentiment, but "something bad but Brock Turner..." trope is getting a little overused.

I don't think a Woman jailed for committing voter fraud after being convicted of tax fraud is a good example for this case about innocent people being suspected merely on the color of their skin.

Edit: I read the story. This woman was taken off the of the voter roles. At the polling station she was given an affidavit to sign that specifically asked her if she was a convicted felon, and stating the penalty for lying. She signed it anyway.

I really don't think she belongs on this thread.
