Make no mistake that people who act out in such manners (ie theft, vandalism, rioting, etc. etc. etc.) are not doing so to really try to change the situation. They are doing so to take advantage of the situation.
So your saying they are taking advantage of a situation while the authorities are preoccupied?

When we had the tornado to come through, people were looting then. Now that's quality folks taking advantage of the situation for you.

After Hurricane Katrina we really had very little looting that I know of in Bay St. Louis where we lived back then. At least right after the storm. Although months later, maybe six, I did lose all my fishing gear and a few tools that I had laid out in a pile of salvageable in my carport.

I don't know that I'm actually judging the action as much as I am the quality of human beings. As Ron said other than a few traffic tickets I have never had any issue with obeying the law and a general rule of conduct. Hell I even went through a border patrol checkpoint 2 weeks ago on the Can Am. Before I came into the stop, I observed the speed limits and the reduction in such, flipped up the visor, removed my sunglasses and slowly came to a stop backing off the throttle, made eye contact with the person and stated that we were both US citizens. Funny thing he looked me square in the eyes and said "You folks have a great day, ride safe."

My point is just good common decency towards the process. Not acting like a "cool jerk", coming in hot on the gear box, visor down, shades on and in general making that agent do more than necessary.

I too am sorry for the rant.

Wow, this took off real fast.
1) I dont think you could call it racism since both groups are the same race.
2) Your sample pool is way to small to arrive to a reasonable conclusion.(learned this one from wife and kids)

I want to say you have a point, but what would it be. I think you are saying the race is Hispanic or Latino, for which it would be the same.

You would know this as well as anyone. If I were Serbian and hated you because your Romanian, would that be Racism? However, we would both be considered Europeans. So which is the race? Are you European or Romanian?

Baring in mind I know you are Naturalized American. Are we confused yet? Maybe!!

Nationality can be considered a separate race if you want to split hairs. Look at Ireland, there is still friction between the North and the South. But it's not the ones that grew up/lived through the IRA and British fighting, it's the young (college aged and >30) adults that are rioting and fighting, killing innocent people in the process. The year we were there, 3 young people were hung from an overpass during the revolt. The culprits were from the higher classed families and had no reason to act out the way they did. I could sort of see it if it was a more downtrodden sector of the population but it's not. The old wounds still run deep, but the older folk are sort of getting past it slowly.
Deep inside, we are still territorial animals, still seeking to take (by force if necessary) others' lands and tribal wealth. We (speaking in a generalization) covet that which is not ours, and seek to dominate. It's been that was since we first stood upright. The difference in us today is how far we'll go in the process or how eveolved we are in order to supress it. Most of us take our battles to the boardroom or the workplace and fulfill our material quests that way. Most of us.
