While I might agree with you all on his general overall character when he leans just a little bit to the non racist side, it deserves encouragement. No one knows for sure if his remarks are heartfelt or pushed by his "outing" by FOX news for his silence or the fact that thugs are now being arrested and people may start shooting back....only he knows. But any move towards racial harmony by him is welcome. ed
Wait and see if he campaigns against it. There is nothing to defend so it's not new for him to be politically correct when questioned on a news show. He will never ask the black community to adhere to civil responsibility.
I think those blacks that speaking out know that such behavior is likely to be met with serious consequences by people that are outraged by such attacks! One of the videos I saw showed a woman being hit from behind by one of those idiots. Cowardly is one word that comes to mind.
