  1. "When someone shows you who they are, believe them the first time." Mayo Angelou
  2. Telling someone who says to shut it by telling them to shut it. We have now divided by zero.
  3. IMO - the founding fathers of the greatest democracy on the planet were not idiots. Society evolves. They based their foundation on what was current at the time.
  4. Interesting subject. Incitement The First Amendment to the United States Constitution guarantees free speech, and the degree to which incitement is protected speech is determined by the imminent lawless action test introduced by the 1969 Supreme Court decision in the case Brandenburg v. Ohio. The court ruled that incitement of events in the indefinite future was protected, but encouragement of "imminent" illegal acts was not protected. This "view reflects longstanding law and is shared by the Federalist Society, the American Civil Liberties Union, the Foundation for Individual Righ
  5. You raise a good point. My concern is that the speech becomes normalized. You, myself and others on this forum can be shocked by what we are hearing, but at the same time there are those who suddenly latch onto it.
  6. I am encouraged by the youth of today to make things better for all people. People are not born with racism, they learn it from their parents, family and friends. It's not a dead end. Many learn that prior beliefs are wrong. Those open to experience are the ones who reject prior doctrine.
  7. Sorry to say but when I see crap like some of the shirts worn during recent protests, I have to agree. 6MWE needs to be silenced now. That is just absolute garbage.
  8. Actually when I think of Guardsmen I think of the amazing horn line. '79 in particular was awesome. I also think of Tiger of San Pedro and Greensleeves. They were signature pieces for them. As for the guard, the band I was in during the early 80s had a rifle instructor who marched Guardsmen. She was tough as nails but my goodness the guard was amazing after her influence. The helmets were iconic for them. There was no second guessing you were watching the Guardsmen.
  9. I did not think it occurred in the '70s but I know it was like that back then. I listen to what you have posted. While yes you periodically go back to that period in history, it's clear it's a situation that still exists today - on top of other situations you have commented on in this forum.
  10. Terri, I'm sorry you experienced that. I know that it's common. I wish it were different. You come across as a person in charge of your destiny. While the world and society are unfair still in so many ways, you know what you want and deserve. This will serve you well. One final note, please do not "throw in the towel" on here. While we see commentary that can challenge and even shock us, we also see change.
  11. I believe that question should be directed to thousands upon thousands of organizations and not just a singular drum corps from Canton, Ohio. No, not the Tuesday part, but the need to define an intolerance to racism within their mandate.
  12. Most of the people I've spoken to who question the need for racism policies, have never experienced racism.
