Re: Charleston masacre
There is a civil rights issue that some try hard to ignore. All murder is crime, by definition. And crime is generally an individual act.
But when someone kills another because of the color of their skin, and the reason for that animosity is perpetuated by an ingrained cultural hatred towards one race, it is a civil rights matter.
In youth it was a way I had, to do my best to please, And change, with every passing lad to suit his theories.
But now I know the things I know, and do the things I do; And if you do not like me so, To hell, my love, with you! --Dorothy Parker
