Look at the poster. Why are all the non-white people doing the un-cool things? That’s what people asked when they saw it. Red Cross has since apologized and pulled the poster from its website. Share your thoughts.

Is a Moment of Silence all we have to offer?

How does a nation react when 49 of their citizens are murdered? Do we start implementing new gun control laws or do we simply call for a moment of silent prayer? Over the past few days I have seen people offer prayers for the victims and their families. I believe in the power of prayer but I also believe in the part of the Bible that says faith without works is dead. We can’t keep mumbling prayers or having moments of silence. We have got to do something. What citizen needs a machine gun? Why are we allowed to purchase guns that are only suitable for war? At this point we are beyond shocked we should be enraged. We can no longer simply offer silent prayer we have to do something or we will be right back here again.

Outrage grows after gorilla is shot to rescue toddler

What has happened to society? The headline above is an actual headline i saw today. People are mad because the zoo officials chose human life over ape life. The big question is what could they have done to save the ape’s life? There has been less coverage about the mauled child than the dead ape. When did we start elevating animal life over human life?

Were Wendy Bell’s comments racial or racist?

Today I have been reading stories about the dismissal of Wendy Bell from her anchor chair in Pittsburgh. She expressed her opinion on her Facebook page and some interpreted her comments as racist and others viewed them as racial. I read her comments and her comments were harsh but not racist. Is it possible to discuss racial issues without being accused of being a racist? Is it possible for a white person to make a racial observation without being branded a racist? Share your thoughts.
