    ...on the surface, without looking at any other comments (didn't even realize you had posted a comment up the thread until a minute after reading the second one), it was a natural reaction to want to h.r. it. Then I looked at your profile after seeing the comment up the thread...etc., etc.

    Perhaps you should read your comment (in question) again...by itself, without ANY other context--and not including the previous comment upthread...it speaks for itself as to why it's h.r.'able. The fact that people of color are discriminated against, profiled, stopped and frisked, arrested and incarcerated, etc., etc. moreso than caucasians is a sad/twisted reality and reflection of the institutionalized oppression and racism that's been ingrained in U.S. society since...forever.
