I appreciate Rusty bringing up RACE that we all have the same needs. He said it ain’t just about black and white.
However I beg the difference because in Edgecombe County alone it is a problem and will always be a problem because white folks have been the dominate race when it comes to farming, jobs, businesses and etc. So my friend RACE be it color is a damn problem. Coming together talking about it ain’t going to completely solve the problem. Until the playing field is leveled it will always be a problem. I just don’t think the field will ever be leveled. But just like folks talk about going to heaven, then we can talk about leveling the playing field.
WASHINGTON — Pepsi Beverages Co. will pay $3.1 million to settle federal charges of race discrimination for using criminal background checks to screen out job applicants – even if they weren’t convicted of a crime.
The settlement announced Wednesday with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission is part of a national government crackdown on hiring policies that can hurt blacks and Hispanics. (More)
The more I hear and read about the Penn State child abuse the more I get pissed off.
Race and economics matters. Little black underprivileged boys is the issue here.
It is a damn shame the abuse was not stopped by the person/s who seen the abuse in action.
Why was the program not shut down? They continued as if no investigation was going on.
I get so damn tired of the rules being changed. A crime was committed.
Boys being molested by adults is a damn crime already on the books. Men having sex with little boys is a damn crime so what is it to debate?
Everyone who has been involved in this case need to be dealt with to the fullest.
Another sad part this mess took place at an institution for higher learning for children and this is what the little boys get in return.
Some folks just don’t know what black folks have endured over the years and do not understand why some do some things they do. From slavery and all that came with that the raping of our women and to the raping of our little boys today but I wonder were there cases of white men molesting little boys during slavery that has gone unreported or talked about.
There is so much in our history that has been told but also untold too I truly believe. It appears that black folks were treated as less humans back then and it is showing today.
If this was mess at Penn State had been black men doing this to little white boys what in the hell do you think would be the order of the day? Go figure!! But if you can’t figure it out, you better ask somebody.
To think about a bunch of folks protesting and rioting over a crime being committed in support of the oppressors and not in the name of the children who were oppressed speaks to the hear and mind of certain folks. Damn somebody got their priorities all screwed up.
The more I write the more I am getting pissed off so I am stopping here because I have a son and I don’t want to imagine what kind of actions I would have had to take to deal with these jerks at Penn State.
