The race hustlers are setting the stage.... Which should anger every American. America has worked too long and hard on healing racial divisions to have race relations become mired in the theatrics of the race grievance industry. 
NeverTrump wants to deny you YOUR voice, YOUR presidential choice.

Already I suspect most people see Wilson as the offender.  Last night on FoxNews Steve Harrigan, better known for his hurricane coverage, was interviewing a young black, and said "I'm here with (whoever) and we're talking about Mike Brown, the murdered man". 
It's the Supreme Court nominations!

Fox is just as much a part of the problem as CNNCBSABCNBCMSNBC.  Their agenda is to stir up the Right while the others are tasked with stirring up the Left.

Our masters care not which side shoots first, their agenda advances no matter who 'wins'.

Wake up people...

Well, I can criticize the right, the left, the government, the press, Christians, Muslims, communists, Republicans, Democrats, corporations...have I left anyone out?  I can travel where I want, when I want, have whomever I want as friends.  I can criticize Obama (which I frequently do), and George Soros as well as the Koch Brothers.  I can surf the internet on some of the scariest sites.  I can criticize the police, the FBI, the NSA, our court system, and have done so on many occasions. 

But I admit I did criticize JR once and was tossed off, so you could be on to something... :pondering:


hehe............
Character still matters.  It always matters.

May 3, 2016 - the day the Republican party left ME.  I am now without a Party, and quite possibly without a country.  May God have mercy!

Shouldn't you have more correctly said:
"Already I suspect most black people see Wilson as the offender" ???

I posted this before, and I'll post it again:
With incidents like this, there is "white truth", and there is "black truth" -- both derived from the same set of facts.

The "two truths" are split apart by the "racial prism" (I take claim for coining that term).

That is to say, just as an ordinary prism splits a single beam of light into various colors, the racial prism takes reality and "divides" it into two separate realities or truths.

Whites see one set of facts their way, reflecting their side of the prism.
Blacks, when presented with the same facts, see things entirely differently, from their side of the prism.

The prism may distort the reality on both sides, but the distortion seems greater on "the black side".

There is no way to fix this, to make blacks and whites see the same truths and realities from their respective sides of the prism. I predict this cannot and will never be achieved.

Given that reality, the only thing for whites to do is to accept the reality that blacks are going to behave their own way according to their own "black truths", and try to get along the best in spite of it. And frankly, whites shouldn't worry that much about it (other than exerting whatever control or force is necessary to keep the peace).

Wouldn't it be wonderful if we could fix this, if we could get rid of the racial prism?
Of course, certainly. Who would not wish for this?

BUT -- as I've said here before:
Reality is what it is.
It is NOT what we believe it to be.

There are some problems for which there are no solutions....
