    People, people, this is not a modern problem. The Buddhist Ambattha sutta tells of groups of pale skinned people denigrating those with dark skin and tells of one dark skin man named KANHA ( Sans. 'Krishna') who was skilled at taming the pale skins who degradated their brothers

    Battle Cat killed it below- " understand that there would be no BLM, if there was justice for black people. there wouldn't be the black panther party w out jim crow, and no Nat Turner w/out the institution of slavery. but there will always be a Kkk and you seem to be closer in ideology w them then what you are claiming. see I only bring the past up to understand the present, and when one is familiar w the past he/she can protect themselves today""

    Some cops are just bad.. bad bad bad. Even when you show respect they just get a tick for trying to harass you or piss you off. Yes, these same guys with deadly weapons. I dunno, but it seems these cops I'm referring to just want a reason to use the gun so badly to end my black ass. On the other hand we have the good friendly cops who just want to get on with it. You show them respect & they show even more. Maybe some of these good cops are more afraid of black men than other races. Maybe we look more intimidating, maybe it's the media portrayals, maybe it's the disproportionate statistics of violence than other races, maybe it's the way we speak, maybe we're too dark, maybe it's a sub conscious protective mechanism to be on guard around a certain race type (like we as humans would be more on guard around a lion than a bird). So me, a squeaky clean, good mannered, respectful & well behaved black man ( & I speak for many many many others) should fear for my life because of how you perceive black people?
    I should be ok
    With it? My son should be ok with it because of a few bad apples. Last time I checked THEY were the trained police.. I'M a civilian. Is it more my responsibilities or theirs. Help us to help you.

    If there wasn't a video of the Walter Scott shooting that lying piece of shit cop would be a free man like Darren Wilson.

    Dreadlocks look like individual fish turds growing out of someones head.

    Harris, you stick to Neuro-Science and atheism because you are good at them.
    when it comes to the issues of race, you are a rich white guy who has always enjoyed a certain of privilege. What you are saying here sound either you are entirely ignorant and covertly racist.
    Give a good Look at yourself in the mirror and admit your hypocrisy because one day you will die and your hypocrisy is left behind for the people to curse you.

    A little something, for all you racists to ponder.

    frustrated by some people expecting racism from me, because I got blown up.

    Here it

    Yes. A
    Muslim man blew me up, and I lost my leg.

    A Muslim
    man also lost his arm that day wearing a British Uniform.

    A Muslim
    medic was in the helicopter that took me from the field.

    A Muslim
    surgeon performed the surgery that saved my life.

    A Muslim
    Nurse was part of the team that helped me when I returned to the UK.

    A Muslim
    Healthcare Assistant was part of the team that sorted out my day to day needs
    in rehabilitation when I was learning to walk.

    A Muslim
    taxi driver gave me a free ride the first time I went for a beer with my Dad
    after I came home.

    A Muslim
    doctor offered my Dad comfort and advice in a pub, when he didn't know how to
    deal with my medicines and side effects.

    to that:

    A white
    Brit spat in my girlfriend's face for 'f**** a cripple when you could have me

    A White
    Brit pushed my wheelchair away from a lift so he could use it first.

    A White
    Brit screamed at my Dad for parking in a disabled bay when I was in the
    services coming home.

    alot of people helped in my recovery! I dont hate white brits either! hahaha)

    Point is,
    f*** off. I know who I dislike, and I know who I don't. I know who I
    appreciate, and I know who I don't.

    If you
    want to hate an entire race of men and women for the actions of a few d***heads
    feel free, but don't push your views on me, thinking I am an easy target
    because one d****** decided it was my day to die.

    all Muslims for the actions of groups like Daeshe and the Taliban, is like
    blaming all Christians for the actions of the KKK or Westboro Baptist Church.

    Get a
    grip of your lives, hug your family and get back to work.

    – Chris

    no racism,just rationality

  • lewisner

    Harris is great when talking about religion but very weak when talking about subjects like this.

    Here in minneapolis/St Paul, BLM was throwing concrete blocks & explosives at the police, the police HORSES (Cruel) at innocent people who did nothing to them and off of overpasses with cars driving underneath
