    The systemic cause of the flash mobs you're talking about are a violent and reactionary response to the racism that is endemic to our country. Black people know what group is primarily responsible for their oppression. They're not idiots, just oppressed. Otherwisevtjey wouldn't vote >90% Democratic. Attacking people based on their race is never justified. I assume that everyone here starts from that assumption. The people here aren't the flash mobs you seem to be worried about.

    If debt were a moral issue then, lacking morals, corporations could never be in debt.

      right and their liberal racist allies. do not give into their efforts to exhaust you as they are not interested in a legitimate dialogue only playing a white victimology game, distracting, derailing, and side-tracking.

      this is one of the main cyberracist tactics in the age of obama.

      I never suggested anyone here was a flash mobber.

      I'm sure you are aware that the african american community is not very supportive of gay marriage. I believe a majority oppose it.

      What if mobs of young gay men were assaulting african americans? And what if I told you that they're not idiots, they're oppressed.

      And I go on to say that because you're not gay, you can't understand bigotry. And not only can you not understand bigotry, it isn't bigotry when gay people do it, because bigotry can only go in one direction, towards gay people.

      I would sound like you, and I would be feeding the hate just as you do.

      And finally, I am worried about flash mobs. And not for my own safety - I don't happen to live in a big city. I'm worried that flash mobs will set everyone back if they persist.

      I'm afraid that my signature won't match the mood of my comment.

        On numerous accounts. The majority of people who identify as 'black' are fine with marriage equality.

        Other than that you'be got a bunch of what ifs. Those don't mean shit.
