    After you adjust for the ratio of the black to white population, blacks are 2.5 times more likely to be shot by a cop. And, they are more likely to be shot by a black cop.

    So what's the big deal about a black being shot by a white cop? Statistically, those are less frequent.

    And I doubt that anyone that has a blatant disrespect for the law even bothers to vote

    I've been stopped by a Black cop, at 2am, and was not shot. But I did everything he asked me to. And I addressed him as ' yes officer' 'no officer'

    Because it's a white cop.

    LOL, yeah, I know.

    It's just so convoluted, seeing as how more blacks are being shot by blacks. I guess that's okay.

    I honestly can not believe the 'world' I live in today.

    I remember watching science fiction shows as a child where the media was controlling the masses through PSA announcements, news, and the like. I enjoyed it. Being science fiction and all.

    I also remember hearing about how Russia disseminated propaganda via the television to their masses. I laughed at those ruskies, thinking we'd never fall for that crap.

    But, decades later, here we are.

    All of that science fiction is now proven fact.

    SAD thing is...

    People have not changed that much...
    They always have been slaves to authority figures telling lies.

    Perhaps the lies are worse now... but the human nature part, IMO, has not changed much.

    *Installation is more important than the brand of equipment
    *The duct system keeps the house comfortable; the equipment only heats and cools (and dehumidifies)
    *Cheap is not good, good is not cheap; however expensive is not a guarantee of quality!

    In the case of the current admin as pertains to minorities (and most other issues), it really is a case of the blind leading the blind.

    And the shooting of one's own foot.

    And lots of other metaphors.
