Nobody feels oppressed by the national anthem itself, you simpleton. They’re protesting injustice at the hands of law enforcement in the country which that national anthem represents. Try again.

In a family neighborhood, there are normal sounds: kids playing, people doing yard work or maybe working on their house.  BUT, adult men sitting on a back deck yelling obscenities while watching football every Saturday and Sunday should not be a normal family neighborhood noise.  It is vulgar and trashy.

Welcome to Huntersville!  Town of U-Turns!  I can’t imagine the current traffic pattern is the safest option.  Especially when you need to go West on Sam Furr Road out of the Target shopping center.  Is all of the traffic passing through the narrow passage by the strip mall really the safest option?

In response to the writer who felt he was being judged by his skin color;  how do you know I’m judging you in the first place.?  You are  assuming that because I’m white, I’m racist.  Isn’t that exactly what you are complaining about?  You are judging me on my skin color and assuming I’m racist.

To the black male who is tried of being judged by white people, guess what Bucko, we are all judged. All day every day. People are judged by their grammar, their choice of clothing, the type of car they drive, you name it. It has nothing to do with race. I am judged because I’m elderly. I’m judged because I’m overweight, and other reasons I don’t even know. We’re all judged by people, black, white, yellow, and red. Even you judge other people. Yes, you are being judged, but not because you are black, but because you are another human. Get over yourself, if you are so sure you’re being judged because you’re black, that says more about your thoughts about race than the millions of other people that haven’t given you or anyone else 2 seconds of thought.
