    I appreciate the video but I'm sure that you know that you're attempting to reach a people who have been conditioned to think no further than a week or two weeks ahead. We are not in general what can be defined as LONG TERM THINKERS so there are certain things that we just aren't going to get and even less that we care about. Fact is fact...but thank you anyway.

    I was always under the impression that the government did and those who are in serious financial power...IMO, it's big BIG business for them...and a lucrative one...A part of the chess game that is being played.

    Terrorism creates fear, fear generates money, money is the ultimate source of power.

    would you consider NOT speaking for everybody?

    Actually I didn't speak for everybody. When said: We are not in general what can be defined as LONG TERM THINKERS, it was true. You obviously are not one of the GENERAL THINKERS.

    I don't see us as being hapless and helpless victims to begin with...

    Once enough of us quit acting and reacting like we are, then we'll actually do something about those in our midst who are also a part of the problem, too....

    So fear of crime and the level of black on black crime is just a white backed conspiracy?

    I feel and think otherwise...

    And what does anybody reading this propose we also do about that?

    Holla holla....

    As was and is true: Some in our midst choose to be a part of the problem (even if by default) and others strive to be a part of the solution...

    Otherwise I do agree, as regards those whose thinking etc. reflect dwelling on the short term, aren't in it for the long term...

    I. e., so many of our relations are too impatient, expect longstanding issues/problems/etc. to be resolved 'overnight'...

    Nothing was or is so easily resolved...

    FYI....
