    Uhhh- be careful about what you wish for . In 1942, my father got assigned to train troops in the Caribbean. they took over , as Canadians, from the most incredible colonial screw ups imaginable.

    the Jamaican island governor had issued picks and shovels, and forbidden firearms, to the 'coloreds." at a time when every potential infantry man was needed, desperately, by the commonwealth.

    the Caribbean regiments were experiencing mass desertions, by troopers who caught the ferry to Pensacola and new Orleans, then registered under false Id's to join the American forces - and at least- carry a rifle....
    Americans are too arrogant to ever think that such things matter.

        I would think that all people would be for less "black on black crime" (a term I first heard years ago from a black politician in Florida). Yes, the judge could have said what he said a bit more p.c. but the facts back up his statement. I am for less white on white crime, less black on black crime, less black on white crime, less white on black crime etc. just less crime in general in all races and I think other reasonable people would not be offended by it. Look at the crime statistics and you can see that there is a lot of "black on black" crime and anything that could be done to lessen it should be considered. There is a lot of "white on white" crime too and I am not offended by anyone talking about it and trying to resolve it. I would not claim they were racist because they mention "white on white". It is getting ridiculous in that we can only refer to things in generic terms without offending some people.
        If only that were true. Fact of the matter is if you mention white on white crime or anything involving someone white you will automatically be labeled a racist or be accused of "white guilt". So the ability to discuss black issues while white issues being off limits might be evidence that white privilege is real.

            You understood clearly
            Politics is the art of looking for trouble, finding it everywhere, diagnosing it incorrectly and applying the wrong remedies.

                Actually white on white crime has been discussed dozens of times at least. Discussions involving justifiable use of force, gun control, and current event high profile trial discussions involving white people have all occurred with no one trying to shush the topic because it was white on white. So nope.
