That's only because they'd already seen the police.

I already have a sensitive fracas. I can't imagine getting pepper spray in it.

The semi-automatic tactical assault Andy Summers is a monstrous invention.

He's likely to have trouble, however, when the pepper spray hits his fracas.

Another race riot. We seem to have these constantly.

Sure, the one post today where the subby doesn't use an apostrophe for affect.

I have a friend who has been a prison guard for a long time.   About 15 years ago, he talked me into applying.    After I had the application filled out, but before I could turn it in, some prisoners staged a fight to try and suck some guards in.    He was one of the injured ones.   They stomped his leg so bad it required 3 surgeries and almost 2 years of healing to be back to near normal.

I never did turn in that app.

Can we stop using "African-American" and go back to just saying "black?"  Think about this:

Lennie James, the actor who plays Morgan on "The Walking Dead," was born in and lives in England.  Would Lennie be an African-American from England?  That's ridiculous because he's NOT AMERICAN.

This phrase cannot be used universally, so let's just drop it.

One of my college profs was born and raised in South Africa, he was white.  He emigrated to the U.S. and considered himself an African American.

Additional CSB:  One of my high school classmates was born in Egypt. His family emigrated to the USA when he was a baby and became US citizens.  His skin tone was sufficiently dark that he could pass for what is commonly known as an African-American here in America, though his ancestry was mixed African/Arab.

On his college applications, he checked the box that indicated his ethnicity was African-American.  He also applied for scholarships for African-Americans.  I assume that when these organizations saw his name was Tarek Harraz (not his real name) they probably assumed that he was an American black muslim who'd repudiated his slave name, like Cassius Clay/Muhammad Ali or Malcolm Little/El-Hajj Malik El-Shabazz .  He had to go to an interview for one of these scholarships, and was indignantly told that he was not eligibile because he wasn't a REAL African-American, he was an Arab.  He never did understand why the hell he was disqualified, since was literally an African (well... Egyptian) American.  That's America for ya, buddy.

A 'gangs of New York' kind of deal. "I don't like you 'cause you're not me", has been an American mantra for a very long time. First in was the pilgrims, then the germans, then the Dutch, then the jews, then the irish, then the Scandihovians, then the jews, then the Krauts, then the Japs, then the Best Koreans, then the Ugandi, then the Vietnamese, then the Somalians, then the Arabs, then the Muslims in general, then the Libyains, then the Best Koreans... Ya get the picture? It's American to hate, even if they're your neighbor.
