Depends what circles you mix in I suppose I know plenty of black people who have no problems whatsoever.
You being a teacher probably meet people who make more wrong life choices.

and 'not as much' is still too much
Agreed

of course it is

it might manifest itself in different ways but it's part of UK daily life as much as the US.

people are very good at not paying attention to things that are difficult and might mean a change to their world...

and 'not as much' is still too much

Itís America. I donít belive we have the same problems here do we?

Think I might get 5,000 to smash Leeds up because in South Africa somebody got beat up by a black man today. Same perspective to me. Itís got virtually nothing to do with people over here, I canít see that we have the same problems?

Could be wrong

You're right mate - It does go on everyday - that's the point.

The problem is that it will continue to go on everyday unless people come together to do something about it. Something needs to change and I absolutely hope that this might be a turning point.

If you just shrug your shoulders and say 'it happens all the time / it's been happening for years / people will never change' etc. then you're not part of the solution - which makes you part of the problem. (not YOU specifically - you get my point yeah?)

Peace and Love mate.

Mal,

Stuff goes on like this EVERYDAY, thatís the reality

Iím listening to the one show now. We need to look at racism and gun crimes, I am totally with it, the biggest battle is the dickheads carrying the guns and knives in the first place, would you want to deal with them?

If you are dealing with people who are tooled up, Iím sorry but the first thing you need to protect is yourself, **** protocol and regulations when it comes down to the crunch. What happened is terrible but more is coming out as it goes along. What the officer did was a racist and dominant act as I see it on TV. I can tell you this though. If it was me or him, it would be him

Come on Scozza - are they idiots because they feel strongly about racism?

is that not 'excuse' enough?

more power to them I say. Towns with a predominantly white middle class demographic need to show their support in the same way as anywhere else.

The US defence secretary has opposed the sending in of military troops - a bit of sense prevailing there. As a wise man once said, 'violence begets violence' and the people closest to George Floyd are continually asking for a peaceful approach.

And Confederate statues are coming down - some organised with town / city officials rathe than just being torn down. Some positive change is happening at least

The LA riots in 92 were pretty rough. Over 60 dead, only stopped when the National Guard were called in.
Get them in now I say.
Oh how about the riots on LA in the 60s, they were pretty rough too.
Actually there's been riots in The States for many many decades, it really does not matter who is president they will always happen.
These riots are nothing to do with Trump, he just happens to be the current president. But there again I am looking at it without any political ideology, just looking for what it is.

I cant, i'm learning to play Nothing else matters on the ol' 6 string and my wrists ache now.

But i think we are heading to religious war, not class, no anti-cap v cap, nor race either - but.. not until the western world is in total disarray and are skint through hyper-inflation, and weakened

The rest is written below in invisible font, pickle.

he's an utter disgrace - getting his stormtroopers to tear gas and fire rubber bullets at peaceful protesters so he can walk to a church for a photo opportunity.
