[quote]There have been plenty of racially charged scenes that have played out in our judicial system over the pash decade (or further back, if you wish). In situation after situation, we see the professional race hustlers choose what seem to be mind bogglingly bad cases as their cause célèbre. [b]T...

Of course he gave opinions. For example, when he accused all of the anti-Wilso...

[quote]I agree with this. While I agree with the "no bill", I think it's difficult to get an honest presentation of the evidence in most cases. However, it has to be reinforced that the grand jury ultimately makes the decision, not the DA.
Originally I thought the DA making the speech was fine- ...

By a Black man. And I believe that his brother and uncle are cops and his mother worked for the police department. This shouldn't disqualify him from being the DA, but like all of us he is human, and h...

I'm sure that Darren Wilson was pleased with his presentation, because it sounded like the briefing of a defense attorney. There's a natural conflict of interest for DA's in cases like these. Out of necessity, DA's and cops have symbiotic relationships. Cops need DA's to back them up, and DA's need ...

Or as football fans know her, Odell Beckham's Mom. She's one of a few athletes who I've known who had kids to grow up and become more famous than them. Perhaps some newspaper will do a piece on Eric Reid's Dad, who was also an NCAA track champhion (110 hurdles) at LSU.
| Political Talk|| re: Blacks kill whites over twice as much as whites kill blacks. - trackfan on 11/23/14 at 11:14 pm|
Considering the fact that Whites outnumber Blacks 6 to 1, I'm not surprised. If Blacks and Whites killed each other completely at random, the numbers would be a lot more lopsided than that, but since most people are murdered by people they know, the numbers are lower. By the way, the vast majority o...

Depending on who their other non-conference opponents are, some SEC teams deserve to be called out, especially considering the fact that the SEC only plays eight conference games, unlike the PAC 12 and the Big 12, who both play nine. For examp...
