That system was put in place by racist Democrats and has been largely dismantled by the Warren Court(Earl Warren was a Republican) and the Civil Rights Act of 1964, which was supported by Republicans and opposed by Democrats.

Stick your head in the sand if you want to. As I said in another post, the right is its own worst enemy.

It is you have your head all the way in the sand dune of perceived racism as the cause for every negative thing.

It is hard to see when you are blinded by your own prejudice.

Open your eyes - and help the left stop killing itself politically by using race-baiting as its only weapon.

You are the left's own worst enemy - division solves nothing - wouldn't you rather promote unity?

Do you care nothing about fulfilling Dr. King's dream?

Do you believe for one second that anyone would have complained or that these kids would have been arrested for waiting on the bus if they were white?

Let's be real here. It's obvious to anyone in the US who hasn't spent their entire life completely disconnected from the reality around them that they were arrested for waiting for the bus while black.

Division. Prejudice. Race baiting. Sounds alot like Fox news doesn't it ?

I am not even a liberal. I am conservative. How about that. I do not feel represented by any political party or movement in north america so I am kind of a freestyle conservative.

Is that what Progressives are calling themselves nowadays?

This is a race baiting thread. For what purpose?

Harrier is white and people have called the cops because he was in an area.

One of those busybodies got Harrier put in jail for a few hours.

Harrier was just minding his business, like these kids were.

Around here, the people who called may have been Hispanic, but Harrier didn't blame the people, he blamed the cops - who happened to be Hispanic.

Both are incidents of unlawful actions by cops - period.

Not everything is about race.

Wow, I was hoping for a video of their actions prior, during, and after the arrest considering how positive some here are that these kids (star high school athletes) were doing nothing wrong. While I feel it's very possible these guys are telling the truth, I also think it!'a possible these guys were blocking the sidewalk and access to the business as well as threatening or intimidating people going to and from the business. It's also possible the police did give them a warning and they ignored the warning because they didn't feel they were doing anything wrong and THEN they got arrested. Too many school athletes are allowed by school faculty to get away with bullying & harassing students and teachers as long as they can play ball that they feel they!'re above the law both in and out of school.

Are you white? Because, if so, you just indicted yourself in the OP.
