"""There were plenty of empty seats in the East High School auditorium..."""
That is the problem. You can BLAME everybody and everything, make one excuse after another, but the biggest problem starts in the HOME! You brought a kid into this world and it's not society's responsibility to teach them right from wrong, what they want to do with their life,etc. it's the PARENTS responsibility. So quit with the blame game and be a PARENT! It's not rocket science!

Topper - You are part of the problem. What happened in the past is over and done with, this is a new generation and new rules and new weapons and no consequences for their actions, unlike the past when you did have to answer to someone. Nowadays it's everyone else's fault not the person in the mirror. Just keep making excuses.

"""If students had the books they need for class and had teachers and students not been frustrated with each other, McWilson said he doesn’t think the fighting would have happened.""He was also critical of the police response.
“These were military archetype at East today,” McWilson said. “You need to think about what’s happening.”
Are these idiots SERIOUS? I'm getting so sick and tired of these fools blaming EVERYONE and EVERYTHING instead of the ones that are responsible. The kids today are so spoiled and have no DISCIPLINE! They can do whatever they want and have no repercussions because idiots have to blame everyone else. I'm glad I won't be around when these future thugs are running the Country. God help us all.

Do these protesters actually know what there protesting? Name ONE incident where a white police officer shot a INNOCENT black man just because he was black and just for the hell of it?

EXCELLENT article! Someone finally has the guts to say it like it is and not sugar coat the truth. Wish more people would have the courage. Nicely done!

Tommy Yazzie, superintendent of the Red Mesa school district on the Navajo Nation reservation. "Society, they think it's more derogatory because of the recent discussions," Yazzie said. "In its pure form, a lot of Native American men, you go into the sweat lodge with what you've got -- your skin. I don't see it as derogatory."
Neither does Eunice Davidson, a Dakota Sioux who lives on the Spirit Lake reservation in North Dakota. "It more or less shows that they approve of our history," she said.
Davidson said that if she could speak to Dan Snyder, the Washington team owner who has vowed never to change the name, "I would say I stand with him. We don't want our history to be forgotten."
In 2004, the National Annenberg Election Survey asked 768 people who identified themselves as Indian whether they found the name "Washington Redskins" offensive. Almost 90 percent said it did not bother them.
