I don't blame America. I am America, you are America. I don't blame you. I blame bad policy. I blame the interventionists. I blame the neoconservatives.

Becoming informed about the American system of local law enforcement and the forces arrayed to nationalize local police is insufficient without action.

Cops, increasingly demonized and under attack by the black community , understandably are pulling back on policing in America's urban war zones. The outcome? Crime rates increase. Instead of "Black Lives Matter," black lives are more destroyed.

Should women be in combat roles in the military? No. It is not a right for everyone. It's a privilege only for those who qualify mentally, physically, and emotionally.

The sorry and tragic state of black education and its attendant problems will not be turned around until there's a change in what's acceptable behavior and what's unacceptable behavior. That change must come from within the black community.
