Or we can create a huge story based on false and manipulative reporting and stoke the flames. How is that working out?
the evidence is ample man ... why you choose to ignore it is mind boggling ... forget this story ever broke, heck forget this story ever happened ... you think america is living in racial harmony now?
America is never living in harmony, regardless of race. This story has done nothing to help address harmony you seek, it only incites.
It points out that the racial divides are still massive... That is important. Not that I'm glad this situation is happening, obviously. But look... civil rights and racism are really the HARDEST issues for any nation to overcome. It does not come easy, and it doesn't come peacefully, unfortunately. I wish it did, but it never has in the history of human kind, so we can't expect it to be like that now either, realistically. It's a real shame, though, that America just doesn't seem to be learning with each new experience. The US seems to have come to a complete stand still in this regard as far as the general population goes. Kind of strange... I don't understand why this is, but I sure hope someone fixes it... Most likely, it's really rooted in economic factors... Which leaves little hope that things will actually improve anytime soon (on the contrary).
