On the subject of racism three weeks ago we were talking about these racial remarks. Made by Donald Sterling of the soon to be former owner of the Los Angeles Clippers and now we have this incident involving a white woman. Making racist remarks against an African American man in a parking lot and Cheektowaga. Me what do you make -- that were we going with racism in America. Well -- it -- and we regret the mayor. And that's unfortunate because -- live in this age based either technology. Where. Apparently art technology. It is trial and our ability to treat each other decently -- human -- and -- civil war. I mean even if you'll hold. -- racist views. There's still a place we here. We simply have to Mary -- that humanity. And besides they you know -- -- how to treat people the way. Be trees in and I just. Come -- I'm I'm confused. When I see these kind. -- activities. Because. They don't job I would it. Who we have come as a nation and society. You know will.

To being decent human being. Honoring each -- and -- when we have concerns. Like you know what he has it conversation. That doesn't diminish anyone's character -- person. Is there a difference between racism and hatred. I think there they're there I can't get identical. I don't think there is a huge difference I think day any time we determined. -- we're going to help those kinds of emotions. They don't belong in the human and we at all. And and yet. We are so cute. Being a Jamaica and the behavior kind of and it just it doesn't matter whether racism. Where there is. Whether it's just see any level of evil to someone because some. They air there national origin. Might be different whatever excuse you and that is just one excuse. That being nasty to another person. And we still are going to shared the plane.
