Because freedom can't protect itself
The title of the article implies that blacks are being discriminated against, and yet right off the bat it is stated that there is no real evidence to substantiate that Latinos are classified as white.
So what is the purpose of the article? That's right, to generate anger against white people.
Don't you just love how Latino arrests are "suspected" of being classified as white, and "could" inflate the white numbers.
This whole article does nothing but flare up racism. Until you have cold hard facts and real numbers, writing something like this is nothing but racism against white people, which dilutes any argument you once had. And you wonder why people hate black people? Because garbage like this--shame on you. If you want racism to end, stop being one! Black people seem to blame every event in their lives on racism. I got fired...not because I am a disruptive, lazy jerk but because I'm black. So then the message sent out to the rest of the world is that being a disruptive and lazy jerk equals being black. You bring it on yourselves. So here is an idea....we all need to stop blaming and take personal responsibility. If you don't want to get arrested for marijuana...stop smoking it!
