      I would agree. In other countries, you kill someone you are put to death. That should be the case here

    Mr. Greensburg, you said it 100% correct. Just another reason to reinstate segregation. Wouldn’t want him living next door to me. Or even in my state for that matter.

      What you're really saying is you want slavery back. I lived through segregation it was deplorable. I was spit on, hit with rocks etc, etc. I fought back, I spit back…King was great man, I disagreed with his non-violent approach, it didn't prevent Blacks from being killed. So I followed the eye for an eye approach that worked, they stopped spitting, hitting and name calling when I did to them what they did to me. Therefore, segregation isn't the answer.

      I believe in the death penalty, this perp should pay with his life. There's no excuse for that behavior. But it's amazing your racist relatives weren't put to death for their actions. I wouldn't trust living in your neighborhood because of what you would do because of a persons skin color. That's why I live by my creed "Never Forget, Never Forgive".

    Ha…..Alan, you’re wrong in your accusations about my families’ past. Plus, you are confused about my statement – wasn’t about bringing slavery back. Wouldn’t want to own one, just wouldn’t want one around me. You should travel to the Southside, take the bars off business’ windows and watch them loot steal and continue to tarnish what MLK had started. “Whitey’s brain built it and browns tearing it down. “
