    What is the point of bringing all the ugly headlines here? Don't you have the courage of your convictions? Do you think you're going to convince someone to believe as you do, by taking the ugliest underbelly of human action, and attaching it to one race?

    Do you know how many black or hispanic serial murderers there are, by comparison to whites?

    Do you know who was responsible for the atrocities in Germany?

    Why are you pinning all the ugliness of humanity on dark-skinned races?

    And as a side note: Since we all have to remain here in this country together (or you can leave) - how can Americans get along, regardless of race, color or creed?

    If you don't care for the points that are or aren't being made, don't bother reading them.

    Comparing the atrocities in Germany to black on white or white on black violence is comparing apples to oranges.

    A fairer comparison to Nazi Germany is Rwanda, Darfur...etc where genocide was/is rampant.

    No responses still. None worth pulling up the thread, anyway.

    Interesting choice of words "What's the solution?" Hitler's Deutschland had the Final Solution which of course was the extermination of the Jewish race. Had Hitler succeeded would the extermination of blacks been next?

    I fear that bigotry and racial discrimination whether it is white against black, black against Hispanic or whatever is not going to go away as long as the children are brought up in environments that teach such racial and economic division. A persons convictions and view of the world are formed when they are growing up and it is the family where it starts. They hear and see things at home and it becomes part of them. Some people can grow beyond this and become aware that although a persons skin color is different, deep down we are all human beings. And yes there are different social ideas and customs too just like Italians and Germans have different customs.

    This is why the religious fanatics in the Middle East will never be beaten. They get the young and susceptible and brainwash them into martyrdom and they will continue to do this.

    Will we ever become a species without conflict, racism or bigotry?

    Very well-stated. I find it ironic that the second post suggested I turn a blind eye to the screaming headline threads. Well, why don't the people who bring them here turn a blind eye, first? Why can't they understand that sick behaviors happen in every race, and it doesn't need to be brought to the attention of the board?

    It is good to let them vent. And this is America where the idea of being able to say what you want is a right. In my opinion letting people put their thoughts out where people can see them gives us an idea what some people are thinking. And it lets you know who is what and they marginalize themselves.

    You're making good sense, but that's only because I have an open mind and I use it. :D
