    As I have pointed out several times. The inequity wrt police exists even if you account for the higher crime induced by the environment.

    But even that ignores the causes of that higher crime environment in the first place, which hail back to the legacies of racism which include poverty and racial violence and oppression both in the past and in the present.

    The causes are plural. And the connections to slavery and racism are very long and complex. Solving the problem is a huge problem, massive in scale.

    But it will never be solved by the sorts of denial and excuse making found in your post.

    Actually this never happened before so I don't think anyone can know what will happen except the SCOTUS will make the final call. They could easily rule that Obama could be Vice President but be ineligible for President if something happens to Biden which would give us, as of this moment, President Pelosi.

    The wording of the 22nd amendment leaves a tad bit of ambiguity.

    They sound JUST LIKE the real life black liberals I work with every day.

    AND, we had a "protest" in one of our public parks where the police were invited, and it was durn-near a LOVE-IN --- even moreso than what we've seen in Houston where black men are coming up and hugging police officers in the middle of the street.
    George Floyd's brother and a civil rights leader were holding a prayer meeting and calling for peaceful protests and condemning the looting and violence.

    Yeah, I started a new thread on that.

    But it's worthwhile posting here, as well... let's listen to the black dude and ignore the blabbering of the white dudes.

    No I have read about this in law blogs. The main purpose of the VP is to take over for the President if he is incapacitated. If he can't do that, then he can't be VP. And Obama could not do that.

    I know there's a legal debate over it but I think it would be risky to run him knowing legal complications could follow.

    I was glad that when John McCain ran in 2008, both sides more or less agreed that his eligibility to run shouldn't be questioned from the beginning, because that could have been ugly.

    As you wish. My final response then is this. As long as you take offense at statements like that, rather than trying to understand the real issues behind why I said it, you will, albeit against your will, be more a part of the problem than a part of the solution. It is thinking like that expressed in the previous post that feeds and perpetuates the problem
