I guess MLK is right. We should judge our African-American citizens , particularly our inner city youth, by the content of their character. Character isn't something the system provides or takes away as it is taught by example, preached every day and a reminder every day. Character is something by making a choice. Choices being made in the inner city like guns, gangs, kids having babies, single parent homes, black on black crime, etc. would probably sicken MLK. Maybe they want to continue being judged by the color of their skin so they have others to blame it all on.

Sven - be careful there. Does the truth become self-evident in something you don't want to admit to? I am sure you are well pleased of the result of the past fifty years from MLK speech of enlightment and responsibility to the current negative leadership of the Rev Al Sharpton and Rev Jesse Jackson with Farrakhan thrown in. More young black men have high school diplomas than white males - your comment reflects the typical lack of intelligence for discussion.

Svensota - no, it was a questioning opinion of how they want to be judged. All of the African-American friends I have and have known, want to be judged on character, not color of their skin. Apparently you were more interested in a sarcastic quick response without thinking.

Svensota, nowhere in my posts did I say anything like you are posting. As you seem to dabble in word meanings, maybe you should look up the word - Maybe - (adv)perhaps, possibly, (a)probable, but not sure, (n) possibility, uncertainty. You are more interested in namecalling and labeling than logical thinking on your part. Rev Al blames it on you as does the Rev Jesse so I guess you have only yourself to blame for their plight.

Avoice: You remind me of an errant puppy. First, you make a mess. Then you sit in it. Now you want to say you didn't do it.

Then, you do it all over again.

To wit:

"Rev. Al blames it on you as does the Rev. Jesse so I guess you have only yourself to blame for their plight."

You are, my friend, totally clueless.

Woof. Woof. Yip. Yip Yip.

Svensota, cute little story but then one has to take pity on a person who has no respect. You probably kicked the dog to do it's errant duty.

Avoice: If the dog said the things you've said here, I would put on hob-nail boots and give it a punt return kick.

Read your own drivel. You are the one with no respect.

Zip. Zero. Nada.
