Disgusting racist attack...not the only one recently either in Austria...I posted the story of skinheads carving letters of racist org. on pregnant Brazilian womans stomach,resulting in miscarriage! (Also this poor man is described as an "it" in the article, more than once, don't they read it before publishing.)

The same thing has & does
happen in Africa & other
places in.......reverse!!!

It is as much a color issue as it
might be for any other reason!!

How do you know this, Bomthe? Isn't your remark as racist as the act of the Austrian police?

I have flagged that person abpve, they are leaving other nasty comments in care2, nothing productive.
TY Ultra for the post, this is disgraceful, the officers should be prosecuted as any other offender.

The issue of racism is simply a case of dyfunction in human psychology. What does color got to do with human relations. We all got the same blood flowing in our vein. It is more or less madness to assult a fellow human on the account of color. Ok 'am black and can talk and see like my white folks. So what is the difference?

ahuva.....What you wrote "could" be true.
However, anytime a black is attacked or
whatever the media paints it as a case of
a black victimized and the posterchild
for sainthood.

This case may be very true however,
blacks are no more saints than the rest
of mankind.

Racism is seen as more of an American
phenomenom than anywhere else.
Blacks over seas are seen the same
as here, the difference is the
freedom of American blacks to scream
and yell racism at every turn.

Here is a perfect example of blacks
yelling racism when there was none:
Some years ago a soft drink company
used clipper ships in the background
of the picture of their labels.

Well, some how, some way a group
of blacks saw those ships as slave
ships and demanded the ships be removed
because it was too traumatic for
blacks to look at.

The company did remove the clipper ships
and my thinking was at the time as now
how utterly absurd!!!!!!!!!

Yes, there is racism on both sides of
the fence. But, blacks use it as a means
of power & getting what they want
no matter how simple minded the demand is.

Also, I've been accused here on care2
for promoting trees as hanging trees!!!!!!

Can you believe it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I think Bette is trying to divert our action on this rather very sensitive issue. Yes I love trees and I when one fell indiscriminately my heart bleeds. I think we should addressed the human angle to our cause. We need a world that all races can be in one accord to understand that we need to save our environment. Cases of racism are retrogressive and could actually take awhole chunkof our time. And I want to believe Ahuva love trees too.

Yes John, I love all living creatures. There isn't any plant, be it tree or not, in our garden I haven't planted with my own hands, with heaps of caring love. Actually, there's only one planted about 40 years ago, long before we moved in. When plants suffer,I do too. But does it mean that this gratifies me to be insensitive to human suffering?

Bette is not trying to divert anything!

I do suggest you read the following story
that is here on Care2 of how deep hatred
can run & then rethink your attitude:


Officer John Pawlowski: You Got Mud On Your Face! Philly Jailhouse Muslims Declare "Citywide Pawlowski Funeral Protest. Friday Will Be a Terrible Day of Feces" - Zachariah Walker

Also.....Black, pink & purple people
need to think of where mankind is
going ecologically because in the end
it won't matter what color your skin is.

You agree!

If you really want an indepth look at
the attitude of blacks here in a criminal
situation I suggest you look up & read
The Knoxville Horror.

As I see it payback is not a workable
way to think & get ahead in this world.
I've never heard of a murderer being
promoted as a CEO based on his career
of being a criminal.
Have you?

There is a saying here started by I
believe the black colleges to promote
education among blacks:

Many blacks have been brainnwashed
because of slavery in the 1860's
and before. Slavery has been around
for thousands of years, even in Eygpt!
There is no slavery per se in America

The stories I've recommended are
excellent sources of how many black here
are literally led around by their
noses by the likes of Al Sharpton &
Louis Farakkan who do not promote
anything that is positive.

Finally, perception is everything.
You agree? If I were in your shoes
I would think & believe as you.
But, I'm in my shoes & see race
relations from here.

People have been fighting for
thousands over something, anything
and nothing.
We are what we are...........

P.S. One last comment. I adore
and have high regard for Tiger Woods.
Tiger has done much to help educate
children of "ALL" races. And, to me
that is the way to be.
