    more of a "gotcha" question then one of substance

    i don't understand the need for conservatives to deflect the Martin conversation

    yes, the other one is very important, but it doesn't mean we can't have both

    Surely as incisive and substantive as "what magazines do you read?"

    It would be interesting to list all of the African-American children killed by guns in Chicago since TM was killed. And then see the status of the investigation into those murders.

    asking for a specific name of a stranger killed isn't the equivalent of asking what magazines do you read

    but carry on

    Not that I care much one way or the other, but I think the question was closer to asking "from what sources do you form your worldview?". Perhaps not too substantive, but not really a 'gotcha' question either. Though I also don't think that Palin's response should have reflected too negatively on her, as it isn't clear that she understood the question.

    sure we should have both-----but how much has NAACP and liberals focused on the 1% killed in this way and ignored the genocide ?

    As dumb as suggesting minors should carry concealed weapons, no?

    It is a gimmicky "gotcha" but underlying it is a valid and important point that the NAACP needs to address. It seems that a black life lost to violence is only meaningful and important to them when a white person is the one who took it.

    There is a video on the net that I wish I could find. It is an older African American at a Trayvon rally/memorial in Mississippi after the verdict was read. He laments that 6 black kids had been murdered around the town and there wasn't one memorial but have a white guy kill a black kid and the black leaders are just waiting to pounce on it.

    The implication is basically: "take care of your own sh$t black people, before you can even talk to us." Power and priviledge means not having to answer for your own house being in disarray. Not having this priviledge and power means having to answer for "black on black crime" purely as "black" problem.

    All you hear from the naacp and other African Americans, that are decrying the Zimmerman verdict , is that black children are being murdered. That is true, but they are not being murdered by whites. White crime, including murders against blacks is dramatically lower than black crime against whites.
    How many black children have been murdered this year and how many of that total was murdered by whites? It is time to quit blaming and solve this problem.

    For some, perhaps. Could also be construed as "Stop being such cynical and base political opportunists and have a real discussion about the real issues negatively effecting the cause of AA's in this country."

    Or, "Have the balls to have the difficult discussions and do the hard work instead of sitting back and poaching low-hanging fruit."

    But as I've said numerous times this week, the NAACP's stance and comments on this can be summed up in three words:

    Prime. Fundraising. Opportunity.

    You are basically arguing that black people (or any minority group) should address racism on power's terms, rather than on their own terms. Perhaps it would be a more effective or pragmatic strategy (and some blacks actually will express agreement with the above sentiments), but its also assumes that power wants such a dialogue and is willing to share, change or end its priviledge, which leaves many people skeptical.

    No, I'd say the implication is more that organizations that ostensibly exist to benefit or advocate for the interests of African Americans should consider directing their energies in a more sensibly proportionate way than what they've been doing.

    There are certainly some problems that are disproportionately affecting the black community in America, like gun violence. But to look at what the NAACP and other prominent civil rights organizations and leaders are saying lately, you'd think that racist white people are the ones doing most of the shooting, if not all of it. I mean, boycott Florida? Really? Can you explain why that makes any sense at all?

    In what way would a boycott of Florida be productive in advancing the cause of civil rights?

    Check your PM box, but don't post the video. I think Bill posted it and they deleted it. He uses racial terms referring to African Americans, so as soon as they hear that it's DELETE DELETE DELETE. Even though he IS an African American. LOL.
