• This is a political forum that is non-biased/non-partisan and treats every persons position on topics equally. This debate forum is not aligned to any political party. In today's politics, many ideas are split between and even within all the political parties. Often we find ourselves agreeing on one platform but some topics break our mold. We are here to discuss them in a civil political debate. If this is your first visit to our political forums, be sure to check out the RULES.

A few days ago, after the Zimmerman verdict, I asked the forum, "Well, what are we going to do now?" I asked, "Do we go back to worrying about Syria, (who have seemed to drop off the news cycle screen,) or just sit back and wait for our news cable outlets to create our next dramatic "crisis," and instruct us on what to get all up in a tizzy about.

Well, the new crisis is in. It's "racism."

Everybody is to go get all worked up and fight about race issues now. CNN and MSNBC are trotting out race baiters left and right. They make very little sense but that does not matter. Just watch and get angry "for your side," whatever side that might be. Be a good little sheep and do what your media moguls tell you.

Divide and conquer. Looks like CNN and MSNBC stole one out of the FOXNews playbook.

Turn off your television, shut down your laptop and go outside to get some sun.
