I don't think you have to look that far.

I was actually hoping for a little self reflection, but I guess I was asking too much.

You may have been a bit to optimistic to expect self reflection from people who so far have spend most of their time in this topic trying to prove that black people are the real racists and the source of their own problems.

Interesting link though, +1

So why are you bringing up the KKK?

Because there are huge regional differences in the USA.

What is the difference if you confine your remark to the singular term of racist, when in fact, you can comprehend the whole by the fact that people always refer to themselves or others by names which do not denote what they are.

Mankind, because he does not know what he is, is always claiming to be something else, a democrat, a republican, a horde of things to fit any particular moment,
yet when some claim that we are factually a mind with a biological defined job to perform, what do you do and say?

I call that hypocritical. People love a tag, as long as it is not true, and it don't matter if you call someone a woman, it refers to gender, if you call them a catholic, you refer to a dogma, but not once do you refer to them for what they are, and that is independent of any of these other terms.

Correct reference is only to guide the topic, not the person.

When I say I am an electrician, I am guiding the topic to what I am not, but what I do. However, when you formulate social laws using, women, men, gay, black, lesbian rights, that is an abomination for none of them refer to the topic of law which is identical for any mind.


In logic, grammar, we often name a thing in order to change the coordinate system of measure, when the measure does not equate to the topic, it is faulty reasoning. It is not racism, sexism, religion, or anything else, it is stupidity.

When one does not know how and why names are used to change the measure in a system of logic, after even acquiring a PH.d, then I have to say, better take another look at your educational systems, not to mention, your own ability to reason.

Let's look at 2015 in the great land of the firearm.

So far 314 mass shootings.

45 school shootings so far, (142 so far since 2013).

Even Hillary wants Australian type gun laws.

Australia hasn’t had a mass shooting since 1996 when gun control laws were introduced.

Until country wide gun control is introduced to the US these occurrences will continue to happen and it's only about 20-30% of the population there that doesn't want that to happen.

Stop the 18th century mentality and join the rest of the truly civilised world instead of this continual insanity.

Cheers.

Sorry to disagree with you Wiggo, but the fact is no one in the world is safe. This has again been proven 1 hour ago. There are not enough police to protect everyone. We are all responsible for our own protection.

Paris will be a disaster of unbelievable proportion.

As long as madmen seeking martyrdom exist there will be horrific attacks on human life. Our collective governments insist we are safe and the security is well in hand, unfortunately for what will possibly be more than 100 innocents that lie will not help them.

Be constantly vigilant and protect your life and those you love.

Have to totally disagree, yes there is a very very small chance you could be attacked by terrorists.

But figures published some time ago for the US, calculated that there have been more deaths by gunfire in the US since 1968 than there have been in all the wars the US has taken part in.

Therefore it is a fact that you are much more likely to be killed or injured by one of your own citizens with a gun or rifle than by any outside group.

I don't believe I qualified madmen seeking martyrdom by any distinction of origin. A madman is a madman, treat the illness or execute them, that is the only answer.

I will continue to 'cling to my Bible and my Guns' as my President suggests. If anyone wishes to think gun laws or gun free zones make them safe, I will not attempt to dissuade them. That's the way natural selection works.

A French police official confirming two suicide attacks and one bombing near the Stade de France stadium.
At least 15 people were killed at the Bataclan concert hall in central Paris.
Between 60 and 100 people are reportedly being held hostage at the Bataclan arts centre.
How do you feel safe in such situations even if you have an own gun?
If one in the hostage where about to shoot to defend himself that person would be most likely be dead by now!
You cannot protect yourself with a handgun against suicide bombers and persons with automatic weapons.

Ah, you don't understand the fantasy that every one of those hostages has a gun. The person with the automatic weapon would be so full of holes from all those hostages that he would only be able to hit a scant handful of hostages before his insides were splattered on the wall.

In addition, if there is the possibility that every hostage is trained and armed, the terrorists might not be so quick to do something like this. There is a difference between slaughtering sheep and wolves.

So, despite their hatred and desire for revenge millenia old, they will be logical to an extent and only kill what they view as "the sheep"? Despite the fact that they know there will be retaliation from "the wolves"?

More likely the terrorists already shook down anyone they thought had a weapon or shot them on sight, bombs were thrown, a gun would do no good in what amounts to a combat situation, Unless one had training and the element of surprise, not to mention cover. Yes I've had military training.
