When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

You don't wear your identifying lapel pin. You don't stop when the officer asks you three times to stop. You assault the officer when he places a hand on you to "help" you stop after repeatedly ignore his requests. You hold a press conference with Danny Glover and Harry Connick Jr. stating that it was racial profiling... After all of the incidents that have happened over the last five years, you would think that people would take security seriously, especially at the US Capitol. But to call out your own arrogance as racism is wrong on so many levels. Black leaders fight very hard to bring recognition to legitimate examples of racism. And in a matter of days, she set them back quite a bit. All because she didn't think she had to follow the rules and that security should know who she was. Guess it's typical of todays' politics.

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

There are some people that think that they have more power than they do(McKinney). Legislator or not, if she didn't have her credentials displayed, she should have stopped. Capitol police are there to protect her. There may also have been some underlying situation with her and that particular officer.

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

I guess the thing that bothers me most is that she's focusing on the wrong thing. She is focusing on what happened when they tried to stop her. Had she followed the rules, the second issue wouldn't have existed! People need to learn to accept the consequences of their actions. Maybe those consequences were unjustified or excessive. I don't know. I really don't care. The fact of the matter is that she screwed up and she has yet to apologize to anyone publicly (or privately, probably). If someone walks past security and ignore repeated warnings, I say break out the tazer, lay their ass out, and then pepper spray them for good measure!

This has to be my favorite part of the story:

Didn't realize The Rev. DD Elligan of the CBC was qualified to judge who is a threat and who is not! And I guess I'll agree with the courageous and committed statements as she decided to go up against Capitol Security, but I'm not so sure about the competent part.... And I never did understand why they would make a blanket statement such as "unconditional support" considering she DID SOMETHING WRONG!!! But that takes us back to point one...

Look into her career she is a flaming moron. I dislike Bud Cramer (AL rep) but he is not a moron. A bit of a tool but not stupid.

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

Just playing the race/female card because she doesn't want to be accountable/responsible for following the rules she may have been a part of to set in place.

Above the Law.

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

The Capitol Police are issuing her an arrest warrant. Slugging an officer is a felony. Press charges and convict her.

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

Y'know, I'm not a racist myself. I hate EVERYONE EQUALLY However, it always seems that....no. I'm just not gonna say anything else. My views are my views and not those of anyone/anypart of Fireblades.org and I don't really feel like being banned or anything. So I'll just leave it at I can't tolerate the ignorance/smugness/stupidity of people in general.

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

Ok let me say this first, for all of you that don't know, I am a black man. If you don't follow the rules you should be punished. I don't like the fact that she is pulling out the race card because the simple fact is SHE ****ED UP! I also wish that the black coalition or whatever group would stop running to everyones defense when it's not necessary.

On a side note there was a radio host(I forgot his namebut he was a white man) in St. Louis who called Secretary Rice a "COON" on the radio last week. He was talking about her being the NFL Commisioner and wanted to say that it would be a "total coup". It was a total slip of the tongue, he was trying to say "COUP". He immediatly appoligized on the air and said that it was a slip, and was fired within the hour. The NAACP came to HIS aid and said everyone thought it ws a slip of the tongue, Sec. Rice had accepted his appology, and everything was fine by them. Then they asked the radio station to give him his job back!

I heard that... He was VERY apologetic and you could tell it was a total slip of the tongue. Hell, he was praising her to no end when it happened! Glad to see that people realize it was just a slip-up. Hate to see someone lose their job because of something like that...

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

Look at this, the cop slugging thug has now been caught with her hand in the taxpayer cookie jar. She used taxpayer money to fly another whackjob, Isaac Hayes, in to help dedicate her new office. That is against Congressional rules.
She will find a way to blame that on racism as well. The revisionist socialists always find a way to explain their illegal activities away.
The leftist media will continue to sweep this under the rug while trying to make a big deal out of non-issues that involve Republicans.

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

When race is used as a crutch when someone breaks the rules it diminishes the race as a whole and makes actual claims seem illegitemate. As a black man myself I am tired of hearing people cry race when they are in the obvious wrong. I do have to ask a few questions though...although what she did was obviously wrong...is there a climate in the Capital where recognized officials dont have to show their credentials (not likely) and she felt that she should be shown the same courtesy. I only ask to create discussion not to justify her actions.

That is the difference between Ms Rice and Ms McKinney. Ms Rice had someone make and honest mistake and was gracious enough to accept an apology for such. Ms McKinney breaks the rules (not the first time) and when the officer reacts appropriately slanders the officer.

Ignoring politics, one lady is a class act the other is not. Which would be welcome at your house?

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

again, let me say that I am a black man as well and I 100% completely agree with Aychdot...she ****ed up by not following the rules and then play the race card??!!!!? what BS!!! She should be charged and prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law....attacking a police officer?? wow!

What we should be outraged about it Rush's comments about the girl who was "allegedly" raped by the lacross team at Duke.....He called her a "ho"!! regardless if she is a stripper, prostitute or what, she was raped and does not deserve to be slandered any further...that reason alone is why I hate Rush Limbaugh....what a piece of crap!

Re: When is Racial an Appropriate Defense?

That is pretty phenomenally stupid of her. Racism!??! Hardly. Now, I live in the middle of Illinois, I've seen racial profiling. Every single time (without fail) an African-American male is pulled over by a policeman in my town, at least one more police car shows up "just in case." I have never seen two police cars when the driver was white unless something pretty major was going down.

This woman, on the other hand, is just full of crap. She broke the rules, she needs to accept the consequences.
