"I have a dream that my four little children will not be judged by the color of their skin but by the content of their character."~ MLK Jr. This famous quote is as powerful now as it was when it was issued. This is where Americans of the left & right believe we are now or should be, where character counts -- and is expected. “There is a class of race problem solvers whom make a business of keeping the troubles, the wrongs and the hardships of the Negro race before the public….some of these people do not want the Negro to lose his grievances because they do not want to lose their jobs…they don’t want the patient to get well.” Booker T. Washington. Unfortunately, BTW was right then and it continues. Race in this country has now become an industry unto itself, even though the American people think it is about time that we are a post-racial society. Furthering racism however is necessary for the race industry (Rev. Jesse Jackson, Rev Jeremiah Wright, Rev Al Sharpton, the National of Islam, the New Black Panther Party, etc) to survive. Which means if racism were ever to be eliminated, the industry and the people whose livelihood depends on it, would no longer be needed. And so it is kept alive, long after it's purpose has faded into history. Therefore, the racism industry is now a bigger problem than the racism issue itself. People on both sides, left and right, agree that racism and discrimination are unacceptable in America. To say or think that only one political group (the right) is to blame is inaccurate, irresponsible and/or ignorant. To say so purposely and knowingly is reprehensible. Unfortunately, political ideologies have also attached themselves to this industry in an attempt to secure votes. The Left ( Marxist, radical and lunatic liberals who control the President and the Democrat party) today, and their media counterparts, lead this reprehensible effort with their daily barrage of viscous and inaccurate racist attacks on the right. The Left has been brilliantly successful with this strategy. This success is extremely ironic when you realize that the legacy of racism in this country belongs to the Democrat party. • Democrats legacy of Racism. • How Republicans Thwarted Democrat racism. • Why only Democrats and liberals should feel white guilt? Below you will see both sides clearly. Let's begin right now to talk honestly about race, about character and about racial progress in this country for a change. Opportunity exists for everyone, equally, and has for the last 60 years. That is at least two generations. In that context, read the debate below on, what should no longer be, the issue of race.

Cleveland Wins

By James Freeman,
from The Wall Street Journal,

Just in time for 9/11, a football team makes peace with local heroes.

Long-suffering fans of the National Football League’s Cleveland Browns saw their team lose another home opener on Sunday. But players gave the crowd reason to cheer—both before and after kick-off. After finishing 1-15 last season, the Browns made significant personnel changes and are now fielding the youngest team in the league. On Sunday, the squad showed poise and potential despite losing to the Pittsburgh Steelers. And even during the pre-game, players showed encouraging improvement the moment they emerged from the locker room. According to USA Today: Cleveland Browns players stood for the national anthem and locked arms with law enforcement and military personnel before Sunday’s season opener against the Pittsburgh Steelers. Police officers, military personnel and firefighters also ran out of the Browns’ tunnel to cheers prior to the game. A video featuring messages from players appealing for unity was also played before the anthem. This was a welcome change to many fans, who witnessed the spectacle of roughly a dozen Browns players kneeling during the national anthem at an August preseason game. The players were protesting alleged racial discrimination in the U.S, including among law enforcement. There was a certain irony holding such a protest in Cleveland because the city has a black police chief and a black judge presiding over its municipal court system. The other irony is that many NFL teams have permitted players to express themselves in this manner, even though the league can and does regulate much of what players can do and say on the field. As employees have learned in many other industries, the First Amendment prevents government from limiting our speech, but businesses are free to set conditions on those who voluntarily choose to work for them. The result in the NFL was a bizarre situation in which players could get flagged for taunting one opposing player but not for offending tens of millions of customers.
