Judge Thomas is right. Dignity is not something that can be given to you, nor can it be taken from you.
Dignity is ultimately a choice. You can chose to have it, or not. Should you chose it, then NOTHING and NOONE can take it from you. IMO, Africans brought over here in those days lived in fear. They lived with uncertainty. They were robbed of their freedom and their pursuit of happiness. But, they maintained their dignity in the face of all that.
Many African-Americans today have chosen to replace that dignity with misplaced anger.
Same thoughts here as well. Those lights were in place and ready to go. No doubt the fix was in.
Put a fork in the USA. We’re done.

Hey. We were told we had to change our history.
MICHELLE OBAMA: “Barack knows that we are going to have to make sacrifices; we are going to have to change our conversation; we’re going to have to change our traditions, our history; we’re going to have to move into a different place as a nation.”
It’s taken them 6+ years, but they’re in full transformation mode. Will we stop them? Or will we sit here and complain…
Richalu - I'm glad you mentioned Michael Obama's quote.
They damn sure want to change history, otherwise they would have to ban the party of slavery, which was and is the democrat party.
We are running out of ways to stop "them." Praying won't work, voting sure as hell hasn't worked, giant rallies in Washington haven't worked and the progs now run our courts and legal system.
We can try the "small ball" approach, by running for city councilman or school board, but I believe we don't have the time. The radicals have got more of their evil agenda done and finished in the last six years, than the previous fifty.
To put history in context we should look at the life of William Ellison. He was a self made man. Born in 1790 of humble beginnings at the time of his death in 1861 William Ellison had become one of Charleston’s leading citizens. He was a respected member of the Episcopalian church, one of the largest land owners in the state, and arguably one of the community’s wealthiest families
William Ellison was a staunch supporter of the Confederacy, a legacy his daughter and sons continued. The Ellison family converted their plantation and dedicated it to growing corn, fodder, bacon, and cotton to support the Confederate Army. William and his family also provided generous monetary support to the Confederacy. One of Williams sons even served in uniform until he was wounded.in action.
Oh, I forgot to mention this, 99.9% of the history books do; William Ellison was a free black man, and he wasn’t unique. Only 1.4% of southern whites owned slaves. 4.5% of free black men in the south owned slaves and almost 30% of those owned 10 or more. In fact, if a slave was abused it was most likely his master was a free black man

And that, snowleopard, is the question.
Cavallo- It tooks decades for those cities to tear themselves apart. We don’t have decades. We have, as I see it, months left.
srairgauge- You make a point. In our complacency, we’ve allowed this to happen. Why are we complacent? I don’t know. Again, for decades we’ve thought this couldn’t happen here, while it’s been happening right in front of us. But we’ve held to our own sense of comfort, our own desire to remain below the radar, our own thoughts that it’ll all work out, our own belief in the system. Are we stupid? Not really. But apperantly we are to dumb to realize that we’re the frog that doesn’t know enough to jump out of the (now) boiling water.
ceefive- Good point. A lot depends on what the military/police do. Will they hold to their oaths to protect (join) us, or will they obey orders and draw on us.
And how will it start. Will it be an organized call to arms? Meet at x place at y time? Within minutes the organizers will be either in chains, or in the ground. Or will it be unorganized. Individuals and small groups operating within their small part of the country. That will first be seen as homegrown terror. And once communication is shut down, no one will know what’s happening, and it’ll wither and die.
So, how will it happen?

Wrong, ST. We the People have spoken, and been ignored, for many years now.

Charge all member countries 10 billion dollars a year rent for their offices in the UN building. Let’s see how long the UN stays in the US then.
What would be the point? We voted in many RINO's this last election. They simply gave us the finger and jumped in bed with Boner. Next election I'm voting Democrat.
Ref - brilliant. If you can't beat them, join them. Maybe you should consider becoming a Satanist while you're at it - after all, evil seems to be doing quite well lately.
How do you eat an elephant? One bite at a time! This fight will take some time, but if we persist we will win in the end. One RINO at a time; don’t give up and give them hell wherever you can!

First, it’s probably a safe bet to say we’re mostly white folks commenting here. So…
Many are pointing to the racism that they say is prevalent in America today. They could very well point to comments that many are making on this and other websites to back up that claim.
I would ask those people several questions. And I would ask them to, for once, be honest.
Where is the racism really coming from? Why are the comments being made? Is it truly racism, or anger that is behind the comments?
I would point to this, and many other videos and ask if they feel these attacks are justified. Is the knockout game justified? Do they support these acts of violence, this amount of savagery, against non-blacks?
If they don’t support them, then I’d ask why they condemn as racist those of us that point to the savagery, those of us that DO condemn the acts. I’d ask why they aren’t out there with us.
We need to, loud and long, confront our accusers. We need to point out the hypocritical nature of the accusations. Let’s face it, the squeaky wheel gets the grease. That’s why so many minority groups are getting so many special dispensations.
We are still in the majority, but we have to start squeaking.
The stupid comments come from American-Americans who are fed up with headlines proclaiming that lighter skinned American-Americans are behaving badly toward their darker skinned compatriots…but there is never the decency to admit that lighter skin has no monopoly on bad behavior.
It’s called being fed up with duplicity. I see no skin color in this assault…it’s a provoked assault by a child bent on building herself up at another’s expense…and yet, we’ve been primed to focus on degrees of pigmentation…and to wonder at the deliberate measures the propaganda machine has taken to divide Americans from Americans according to the degree of chocolate the tone of their skin reflects..

Please don’t take this as a personal insult. I do the same at times. But…
You, and as I said, I, represent part of what’s wrong in this country. We take to our video games (or ‘reality tv’, sports shows, Nascar, etc.) when we should be out trying to make right what is wrong.
For myself, I just moved to this area (northeast Maine) and am still settling in, trying to get a feel for the area. But I’ll try to find groups that are active in the area with time. We all need to do that. We need to find that constructive outlet, rather than escaping into a game.
Again, no offense. I’m coming down on myself as much as on others.
 June 25, 2015 at 7:36am
Exactly my words when I saw the headline. Not long at all. I wonder who’s next to jump on this bandwagon.
To many people are now actively trying to bring America down. Including our own republican leadership in Congress. When are the sheeple going to wake up? How can they be waken up, when they seem to relish their sleep?
It's you and your liberal race baiting pres bring this country down!

A story from another age. (No, it wasn’t me)
1980 or ’81. A paramedic friend answered a call to a local disco. Young man had collapsed with numbness and no ability to move his left leg. Got him to the hospital and they had to cut off his tight designer jeans.
The reason for the problem was then very obvious. Apparently to make himself more appealing to the ladies, he’d tied a sausage to his inner thigh. Cut off the circulation.

US products are no longer made in the US. Don’t know who they’re trying to fool.
I have to say, (never thought I would) but I side with the unions on this one.
Unfortunately, I believe they (the unions) too, have a price . . .

Just searched for polls to back up your claim there ST. And found it all depends on where you look, who you ask. Most polls supporting taking it down lead by 5-10 points, whereas polls that supported leaving it up … from 5- 40 percent.
Simpletruth is, your ‘by far’ claim isn’t a truth. As for you mirror comment, well … you progs are so good with the insults, I’ll just leave them to you.

Just the latest distraction. Keep an eye on what’s about to happen behind the curtain.
