  •  So much (yet again) for our post-racial society (7+ / 0-)

    I should bring back my former sig line because it reflects your last paragraph perfectly. It was All it takes is security in your civil rights to be complacent about them. I said that as a gay man, who can be fired for being who I am in more states than I can be married in because of who I am.

    I'm sorry you have to put up with this in your own family, but I'm glad for the dispatch from the field. Don't forget that the disproportional rate of blacks in prison is also a vote-suppression mechanism. The system is awry, and it's not going to change until we get the vestigial racists out of it.

    -7.75, -8.10; Is it true? Is it kind? Is it necessary? . . . and respect the dignity of every human being.
