What's with you guys that always calls up the race card?. The guy is ia f**king nutter to do what he did - period. What if he had been an Iraqi ex army General refugee claiming Allah told him to do it - or is the preconceived redneck mindset too thick to encompass this?!
That's why we call it, "prejudice".
I see the poor people commit most of the crimes. Unfortunately in the US, most of the poor are Spanish docents from Mexico and below, and black people. If they look like us, we would not be called a racist when we describe them. I remember I got my but chew out from a lady from Brazil for calling her a Mexican. She thought Mexicans are trashy people.

In Asia, the northern Asians think the southern Asian people are trash, because they commit most of the crime in Asia. We American do not see the racism in Asia, because we think all Asians look a like and cannot distinguish between the different Asians race.

Just because we use black, white, red or brown to describe someone does not make us a racist.

Tiggerfink - my post about the ex Iraqi General is not just my normal generalisation offhand comment, I know of just such a person who lives down here. If he nutted of (God forbid) I can just imagine however the local press story - let alone the International coverage.
The incident up your way was from a nutter - my point is: it is a shame to attribute racial implications as many seem keen to quickly associate.
Poor people problems that you raise - I cannot disagree with.

I just do not understand why we use the race card either. Our politicians are fueling the fire of racism by catering to one group just to get votes. The politicians should treat us as Americans and not Korean Americans or other race Americans.

I was making a point of before someone calls someone prejudice people need to understand where they are coming from.

Most crime is committed by the people who fear religion......in effect liberals....

Throw the liberals in the ovens and then crime will decrease dramaticly.
Another reason why leftists should buy a gun.

Recall that earlier generations faced down fascism and communism not just with missiles and tanks, but with sturdy alliances and enduring convictions. They understood that our power alone cannot protect us, nor does it entitle us to do as we please. Instead, they knew that our power grows through its prudent use; our security emanates from the justness of our cause, the force of our example, the tempering qualities of humility and restraint.
