” I do not blame the police officers but management is not up to task. This is what happens when you pick leaders based on identity as opposed to merits. As long as we do not pick the best people regardless of gender, color etc. things won’t improve. And with the wave of changes hitting the town these law and order issues will probably be more frequent and most people will just get used to them which will be sad. “

Reader says , “I’m so sick of hearing I’m a Racist because I think differently”

“I as a White American Man i’m so sick of hearing I’m a Racist because I think differently. I have issues with all races. Lower class White people who will beg,borrow and steal to get over on Anyone. Disgruntled Black people who think they are owed something because their Black. Lower class Hispanics who use their race to commit crimes. This is not something you normally see in Asian people. You can put all races that want to get along and who want to reach a goal of the American dream together and they will find they have more in common with each other than people would have you believe. Racism is one group of people no matter their skin color thinking they are better than someone else.
You really only hear this statement from Democrats. Let’s not forget it was the Democratic party that was the KKK, Jim Crow,George Wallace the Democratic party was started by White slave owners FACT. The south was really Racist and a lot of their teaching to their children was the Black people were low down sub human criminal people. I am a child of the sixties and that was what a lot of us were taught. It’s all in the ” ideological ” up bringing that you are taught. People have changed considerably since that time in history. I was brought up by Biblical parents who said everyone has red blood and everyone has feelings think about how you want to be treated before you act on impulses. There are very fine people of all races and there are very bad people. All people who think they are better than someone else or think they are owed something because of their skin color make me very angry. The Media and politicians are the driving forces that divide the American people and it’s Sickening. I live in the south and my neighborhood is getting more diverse every year and we all get along very well. I believe that there should be a law that the media and politicians that use race to divide our people should go to jail.”
