What To Do When You're Stopped By Police - The ACLU & Elon James White

Know Anyone Who Thinks Racial Profiling Is Exaggerated? Watch This, And Tell Me When Your Jaw Drops.


This video clearly demonstrates how racist America is as a country and how far we have to go to become a country that is civilized and actually values equal justice. We must not rest until this goal is achieved. I do not want my great grandchildren to live in a country like we have today. I wish for them to live in a country where differences of race and culture are not ignored but valued as a part of what makes America great.

Proposed NY ban on anonymous posts comes under fire | Security & Privacy - CNET News

This reminds me of the law when I lived in South Korea. This is I believe unconstitutional. It has a chilling effect on free speech without a compelling state interest to justify it. If there was some immediate, potential harm the government would have more of an argument but still they would have a steep mountain to climb to justify such a draconian move.

Monument in Palisades Park, N.J. Memorializing The Sexual Slavery Of Korean Women In World War II, Irritates Japanese Officials - NYTimes.com

Monument in Palisades Park, N.J., Irritates Japanese Officials - NYTimes.com

Japan needs to face up to it's history of imperialism and human rigjts abuses. It's dastardly crimes against the people of Asia are part of it's past. Unlike Germany, Japan was not forced by the victorious Allies after World War II to atone for it's crimes against humanity. This was largely due to the fear of Japan succumbing to the spreading wave of communism in Asia after Mao Tse Tung's victory in the Chinese Civil War.

The legacy of the forced prostitution of Korean women is real. Japan should be loudly criticized, in the world community, for after sixty years still stubbornly refusing to acknowledge it's past. Acknowledging this history is an important step in preventing such atrocities from occurring in the future.

There are still comfort women alive today. They never received reparations for their forced sexual slavery. Japan,incredulously still maintains that these women volunteered to be serially gang raped by Japanese soldiers. Their legacy of suffering must be memorialized around the world. This must never happen again.

The Psychological Profile of Liberals


"Just by virtue of their ideological stance, liberals can tolerate difference, they can tolerate not knowing, wondering ‘it could be this, it could be that.’ They can tolerate someone saying, ‘you’ve got it wrong.’ Liberals are just more open to all of that. It’s less of a problem, it’s less of a concern. They’re much more open to compromise, more open to experience—what would otherwise be threatening to people would not be as threatening because of their ideological disposition."

- Scott Eidelman, a social psychologist at the University of Arkansas

Romney is lying about people not talking about gay people in the 1960s. I was in prep school in the 1960s and it was a very common thing for boys to insult and demean other boys by accusing them of being homosexual. In addition I do not believe Romney when he claims he does not remember battering the young man at his prep school. He committed a crime and should have been arrested.
