Well, we have all certainly seen our share of hate over the course of this trial. It really brought out the worst in the entire nation.

People of all different skin colors attacking each other based on just that- the color of their skin.

Massive generalizations, ignorant opinions, jumping to conclusions, etc.

Tell me everyone isn't glad this uppity banker got smacked upside the head?

Can's wait to see the video. Too bad it wasn't one of the biggies; Dimon or Geithner. THAT would've seriously kicked ass.

Hope the dude is OK but sometimes people just get knocked the f__k out. He should definitely quit drinking.

Get everyone all riled up about race, get everyone all riled up about immigration, hopefully create a flash point and then they can come down on ALL of us even harder.

Keep up the good work America. From 1st to worst at record speed.

What a mess.

Stop drinking the koolaid.

Fiat economies rely upon dilligent workers.

Are you one?

[-] 1 points by TikiJ (-38) 1 year ago

Diligent?

As in do I work a lot of hours?

As in is my day an honest days work?

As in my work helps the betterment of society?

I'm not sure what diligent means anymore.

[-] 3 points by Builder (4202) 1 year ago

Yes, we are travelling on a similar wavelength.

Who am I working for? What am I really doing?

The current catastrophe that we call "progress" creates a problem, and then provides a solution. This is what I call Disaster Capitalism.

It's quite possibly the reason why non-western nations hate our guts.

Can't be the "freedom" because that is being eroded daily.

''As if the nation didn't have enough racial tension on the line with the Zimmerman trial about to leave many people on either side of the gaping racial/social/political divide very angry any minute, now the bankers are involved. And not just any bankers, but apparently ones from that universally lauded incubator of central planners, Goldman Sachs.

According to the Post, "a drunken man was punched out and sent to a hospital in serious condition last night after he yelled racial epithets at a couple quietly eating at a West Village burrito shop, cops and witnesses said. The violence went down at about 5:50 p.m. outside the Benny’s Burrito on the Greenwich Avenue and Jane Street. A black couple was sitting outside the Mexican joint when an intoxicated white man stumbled into their table. Douglas Reddish, 25, who was eating with his girlfriend, tried to help him regain his balance, cops said, and the wait staff came over to shoo the table crasher away.

“This nigger wants to fight me!” the belligerent man yelled, cops said.

Reddish knocked him out with a blow to the face, authorities said. "He was out cold. I thought he was dead," said Benny’s worker Robert Garcia.

Well, if Goldman and its employees are really desperate to antagonize society and split it not only along wealth lines - Jamie Dimon is already lapping most in that regard with his "That's why i am richer than you" comment from several months ago :

but add race to the mix, usually quite an explosive combination, then by all means keep on keeping on.''

The above is abridged from your interesting link in case folk don't open it & frankly - yes, I'm glad he got smacked but fear that there will be repercussions for Mr. Reddish - and ever was it such as ...

This country is such a mess. And Im not even talking about economically. Economically, we are toast. It's not coming back, and if it does its got a lot further down to go before it clears up.

Im talking about culturally. Check out Miley's new video. Holy shit!

Listen, Im just as fucked up as the rest of us. But Im not going to pretend this obsession with ourselves (que pout-y face and puckered lips into camera for facebook) is in any way/shape/form conducive to getting our priorities straight.

No one wants to work together. No one wants to think. No one wants to really do much of anything except

A) Worship money B) React as told to by the media

These will be the "good ol days" that we look back on.

Now how terrifying is that?!

[-] 2 points by shadz66 (19966) 1 year ago

Very ''terrifying'' - from one perspective & whoTF is ''Miley'' ?! NOT Mr. Achey fkn Breakey's daughter ?!!

Further, consider how babies & toddlers play so easily together & accept that racism is learnt behaviour and also has historical and socio-psychological aspects & then see how it's another thing used to divide us and rule us - then and maybe ONLY then - may it be not so ''terrifying'' & frankly I don't think folk fully get just how ''terrifying'' living may be for young, black males in urban society :

Ya, thats who...check out this crazy ass shit:

Granted lots of it is tongue in cheek stuff, but still. That shit is #3. And its far from the sluttiest video Ive seen, and certainly not the most violent by a long shot.

Mean is the new hippie. No more 'love and peace", now it's "Move Bitch, Get out my Way"

But quite frankly, when you are pissed off all the time and pressure coming from 1000 different angles, who doesnt want to just lose it?

I like pop but there's other music you could listen to. Rap is so old by now it's no different than pop. It was interesting for about 10 years but it started 30 years ago. It's old. Try listening to the music people were doing in the late 30's-early 40's. That's when American creativity was at a zenith. Swing, rock and roll, bop, rockabilly, you name it. It was all there. I'm 55 years old and it was my generation that took rap and commercialized it. We just added parts to it and stuck a price tag on it. Big woop. If younger generations want to keep doing the same thing as us knock yourself's out. Those musicians back in the early 40's like Charlie Christian and Charlie Parker were the real pioneers.You don't 'get' Bird until you get Charlie Christian first. No rapper, R&B singer, rocker or anyone else could swing as hard as Charlie Christian. Bird knew that.

Try learning that in school.

Sorry dude, Billy Ray's Madonna wannabe, look-alike daughter was more than I could handle right now, lol - but your 'Ludacris' link- which was not my bag either, somehow reminded me of this, mos def :

And I'm gonna roll me a medicinal one right now & play it loud & proud & reflect upon our F'ed Up world.
