    I'm sure everyone's been watching the news and paying attention to the sudden rash of "We just don't do those things" crimes. Have we been here to long ? How long will this go on and to what depth have we been affected?

    We have been here much too long !! The white man has prove themselves to be a living cancer...altering and destroying the cells and lives of everything that they have come into contact with. This is not a smear campaign, this is a fact. If you can sit there and think of it, they have altered or destroyed it. Food, water, air, land, people, animals, insects and space itself. This means that they have consistently proven themselves to be ANTI-LIFE....and anything that is ant-life is pro-death. CODE WORD: DEVIL. This is the same DEVIL that has been roaming to and fro upon the earth seeing who they may devour. Because they are an "Artificial Being", they multiply their reality into the world. Thus we have artificial foods, artificial intelligence, artificial medicine, artificial spirituality (religions) and even artificial life!! So in following the law of the universe that states that; EVERYTHING REPRODUCES AFTER IT'S OWN KIND, this ARTIFICIAL BEING that we have mistakenly taken to be human, is following that universal law in creating after themselves with the result of all that they do be ARTIFICIAL.

    Think about that for a minute...because there are definitely some of our own people who are also "roaming to and fro upon the earth seeing who they may devour". There are equally some of us with PhD's and BA's who are helping them to create the chemicals that are killing us, that are destroying the food and water chain. No we walk past each other on the street and we don't even say good morning to each other anymore...whether we know them or not. Family members do this to each other in their own households. So yes, we have indeed been around them MUCH TOO LONG!!!

    peace

    I don't watch the news either, so it would help if you spoke specifically about what you're referring too. Or were we just supposed to jump in this thread and go off on the white man/woman as some might expect with such an open question?

    I can think of two possibilities as to what the Lion In Winter is referring to:

    1) The 'we' might be Americans as in the acts of terror which US soldiers have been publicly outed as participating in. There have been quite a few of these over the last few years. The rapes of men, women, and minors at Abu Garab. The killing of unarmed, noncombatant, civilians by unmanned drone attacks. And the killing sprees of GIs like Steven Green and others.

    2) The 'we' might be black Americans participating in [for want of a better phrase] 'reverse racism'.

    We are the descendants of african people etc. who've lived among whites for over five centuries...I. e. so do some of the descendants of the exploited and oppressed mimick their exploiters and oppressors wicked wicked ways? A no brainer...Though never have some been such a bad reflection of them, and on a ever growing level...We are in the midst of a nation spanning crisis, whereas some take it so much for granted, and dare to berate/chide/etc. those striving to reverse the bad siuations/negative effects...The present issues/problems/etc. to be dealt with are as internal as external ones...

    What is needed is a balanced agenda between some who are concerned/worried/etc. about one or the other...

    FYI...
