So by this I take it that you are willing to allow "people much smarter" to determine potential solutions to the question of race in America, should a race/violence link be found. Yet you are unwilling to entertain the idea that Americans might take an open look at current gun regulations? That strikes me as inconsistent and hauntingly similar to things that have been said by eugenicists and organizers of genocide throughout history. I'm not saying that you are one, but I think your ideas have lead to some horrible things.
And just to fill in new posters. You probably should have heeded the warnings about me, I'm a real bad guy. But since it's too late...I have never voted for a democratic presidential candidate and I have never been a registered democrat. Most people who know me would say that I am strongly conservative, both politically and socially. But I am not a party man or someone into clubs. I'll accept the title of religious fanatic if you wish to hang it on me because I believe that my faith has elevated my thinking and my conduct in areas where I needed it badly. I have a very long way to go, and I am a poor ambassador of my faith, but I'd be proud wear the label of fanatic as the saints did.
I did one leave this topic because I was so offended by what was being allowed but I decided to come back and stick it out. My second remark was that I would not debate the question of Durban's reply any longer and I haven't. My recent remarks have been aimed directly at people who wish to push the blame for violence on others based on race and those who will ignore the most blatant of our historical injustices in order to prop up the 2A. I think we can do better than that.
