    I live in Ferguson. On a neighborhood forum, one person told of an incident where a pregnant black lady was shot and killed by police. "Where is the outcry from the white community?" she wrote. Well, as a white person, no outcry from me because this is the first time I heard of this incident. Where did this story come from? She also posted an article written by some basketball semi-star who wrote an essay published in the St. Louis American (a black newspaper) stating studies that showed Blacks that were financially successful being denied loans from banks because they're black, and a couple other attacks on the "white" community. Not a one reference to these "studies" given. If that's true, then shame on these people. The Civil Rights Act of 1964 grants that no discrimination because of race, religion or nationality will be allowed. There's a paper trail with this, and if these "discriminated against" people had any sense, they should have pursued it with a law suit. So, shame on them for not taking legal action. (I'm also wondering about competence of the editor of the St. Louis American. No competent publication would publish a story with such allegations with no references to back up those "studies".)

    Too many (certainly not all) blacks "just assume" whites are against them. They accept any negative story without question or giving it serious thought. Yeah, and some whites do it too.
