    I don't sweep this stuff under the rug either, but there's a larger point here.

    All of these diaries that divert from calls for increased gun safety to talk about root causes have me checking comments that the writer made on other things before I commit to a response. I don't have children, I don't play video games, I don't watch violent sports, I don't listen to a lot of hip hop music (and If I do I don't broadcast it to unwilling bystanders).

    I took an exam some 45 years ago in a course on Black politics that asked, among other things, "Are you a white racist? Explain." I accepted that status in 1967 and I worked to eradicate anything racist from my thinking, and I think I've done that.  This, I'm not taking responsibility for.

      But I will change and unlike you, I think most people can do a better job.

      Is thrown into the "causes violence" category.  Maybe back in the day you would've had an argument, but MOST of what is considered hiphop today is not violent!!! It is mostly about money, women etc.
