There are extremely few human beings on this earth who are " fault-free "!! I too have biases; I dislike people that disrespect others for any reason; I dislike bullies; I dislike con artists; I dislike people blowing smoke into my nose; I dislike people screaming profanity; I dislike people that think that they own me; I dislike people that think that I owe them something!!

Like every other human being I have biases but that does not prevent me from treating everyone respectfully until they prove themselves unworthy of my respect!! Such are the values of a human being brought up correctly by their family and their society; unfortunately in todays United States of America a proper upbringing is a rarity instead of it being normal!! As an American I doubt if our society is going to last very much longer!! People are buying guns everywhere preparing for the chaos to come!!

From James D. Robenalt

The cycle of racial violence in our nation is as predictable as it is recurrent. Repression leads to poverty, poverty to hopelessness and crime, crime to police intervention, often violent, and police violence leads to violent retaliation against the police. This is not to excuse any violence, but explain its genesis.

When the state cannot please everybody, it will choose whom it had better please.

I am truly wondering just how many Bernie Sanders supporters are going to vote for Donald Trump in November just to get back at the underhanded way that Hillary Clinton was " handed " the democratic nomination??

From Toni Morrison

The function, the very serious function of racism, is distraction. It keeps you from doing your work. It keeps you explaining, over and over again, your reason for being.

More From Paul Craig Roberts

The Democratic Party that once was concerned with workers rights, the elderly, civil rights, and the constitutional protections of America liberty no longer exists. As the just completed Democratic presidential primaries and the Democratic presidential convention have clearly demonstrated, the United States now has two Republican parties in service to the One Percent.

Ah, they speak grandly of liberty for themselves while they enslave other human beings; they speak grandly of god while they sexually exploit children; etc. etc. such is the front and back of the behavior of human beings!!

Unfortunately, if there is only contempt and loathing in your hearts there can never be any respect, nor any relevant dialogue, between any parties!! The parties will end up more entrenched in each of their own positions as their voices get louder and more insulting with each passing minute!! Such is our human nature!!

Mr. Micah Xavier Johnson is not done killing innocent people just because he is dead!! Negros in these United States will do a lot of suffering, and dying, for an awful lot of years, because of his actions against the police!! Mr. Johnson was not a criminal fleeing from a crime that he had just committed; Mr. Johnson was on a suicide mission to kill police officers!! His hatred and killing is just going to get a lot of innocent people killed in the near and far future!! Mr. Johnsons actions there those of someone unconcerned with his life, and the lives of his race!! The history of the negro in these United States of America is a history of brutal suffering and atrocities; only the native Indians have suffered more!! Only an idiot would do what he has done!!

More From Ron Paul

Black people are tried and imprisoned disproportionately. They suffer the consequence of the death penalty disproportionately. Rich white people do not get the death penalty very often. And most of these are victimless crimes. Sometimes people can use drugs and get arrested three times and never committed a violent act and they can go to prison for life. I think there is discrimination in the system, but you have to address the drug war. I would say the judicial system is probably one of the worst places where prejudice and discrimination still exists in this country.

The best argument against democracy is a five-minute conversation with the average voter.

From Kurt Vonnegut

1492. As children we were taught to memorize this year with pride and joy as the year people began living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America. Actually, people had been living full and imaginative lives on the continent of North America for hundreds of years before that. 1492 was simply the year sea pirates began to rob, cheat, and kill them.

From Ursula K. Le Guin

It is our suffering that brings us together. It is not love. Love does not obey the mind, and turns to hate when forced. The bond that binds us is beyond choice. We are brothers. We are brothers in what we share. In pain, which each of us must suffer alone, in hunger, in poverty, in hope, we know our brotherhood. We know it, because we have had to learn it. We know that there is no help for us but from one another, that no hand will save us if we do not reach out our hand. And the hand that you reach out is empty, as mine is. You have nothing. You possess nothing. You own nothing. You are free. All you have is what you are, and what you give.

From Malcolm X

I am for truth, no matter who tells it. I am for justice, no matter who it is for or against. I am a human being, first and foremost, and as such I am for whoever and whatever benefits humanity as a whole.
