Last night I watched ESPN OTL last night and their discussion of the n-word. So many black people love the word, but just as many despise the word and so this is a constant source of debate. Next season the NFL is considering fining player for use of the word on the field. What do you think? Is this a good idead and will it be possible to enforce it? Share your thoughts.
You take your children to school everyday. You trust the tachers, but the reality is you do not know these people. A Florida teacher, Jennifer Forshay decided that it was appropriate to make a student clean out a urinal with his bare hands. She believed he had clogged the toilet by putting paper towel in the urinal. She really did not think she had done anything wrong, and that is what is truly wrong.

If you call someone a subhuman mongrel should you apologize? That’s a quite a statement to make and it takes committment to make such a statement. Ted Nugent hates the president and his statements go beyond a policy debate. His comments show rage and disrespect. So why would he apologize for expressing his true feelings? He is apologizing to the people in his party who might be offended not to the president. We live in the age of apology. You make the most ourageous statent and then you apologize for it. You got your message out there and if you offended those associated with your cause simply release an apology it is sadly how our system works.

The other day I had an intelligent conversation with someone on Twitter. We had opposing viewpoints, but it never got crazy. The Twitter person contended that good behavior could save your life. He said that if the boys had cut the music down and kept it down Michael Dunn would have never shot at them. I consider that quite the stretch and I said that I did not believe that good behavior was a lifesaver. What do you think? Is this a case of young people acting badly or was this a case of a trigger happy middle aged man feeling disrespected? Earlier today I posted on the Adrian Broadway case. She and some of her friends egged a car, and the owner came out and shot at them as they attempted to escape. Broadway was killed. Is bad behavior ever an excuse for killing? Who determines what is good behavior? Share your thoughts.
Adrian Broadway was killed over the weekend. She and a group of friends egged a car owned by Willie Noble. He shot at the car as they tried to escape and Broadway was killed. Why haven’t we heard more about this case? Why haven’t we heard more about Noble? both the victim and the shooter were black. Where is the outrage? Read the linked story and share your thoughts.
