Sean Belt BS: Racism in US police (Ferguson) (98* d) RE: BS: Racism in US police (Ferguson) 16 Jun 15

You all just make me sad. There is huge racism in the US and the UK and India and Japan and anywhere in the world where different races live in the same vicinity. It's the human condition and anyone who believes differently is fooling themself. The best we can hope for is that people will recognize that sickness in themselves and work to overcome it and be better people.

I live in St. Louis near Ferguson. I'll tell you, there are big problems with racism here. And with police brutality, a failed educational system, crushing poverty, too many guns available to too many young people, young black men killing other young black men and women at an alarming rate and more terrible things than I can rehearse here. But at the same time there are moments of hope and people who are working against all odds to correct these things and make this a better community for everyone. I assume that this or something very like this is going on all over the world.

How about giving up on wasting your energy sniping at one another and go out and do one thing to help another human being today. Redirect your energy towards kindness.
