Thank you enlightening me Kelly. Where I grew up "gals" was used to refer to female friends by both men and women. I had no idea the term had anything to do with slavery. We also referred to the men we knew as "boys" - especially when they were fooling around doing manly things like arguing over who had the best algorithm, or grilling in the backyard, or smoking the barbecue.

Oh, some of us really get it. Others prefer to claim everything from discrimination to genetic tendencies. The problem is we can't treat the disease until and unless we are willing to face the causes, no matter how much they might fly in the face of popular opinion. No one wants to discuss the fact that regardless of race, the major factor that can be used to predict future violent crime is being raised in a fatherless environment. Eliminate the illegitimacy factor, and the racial differences between blacks and whites evaporate.

Excuse me, but here's my problem. Why is it so many folks who believe that everyone is the same choose to iive in the most racially and ethnically segregated portions of the Bay Area? I live in a diverse area. I know the thugs, and I know the good people. They don't come color coded - what I know is that thug life is heavily promoted and accepted more in some groups than in others. Some families, regardless of ethnicity, never believe their child can do wrong.

I wish thugs didn't want anything to do with the rest of us; unfortunately, in my area they have made various efforts to collect "taxes" from other people in return for being allowed to not be assaulted. Please note that although some groups tolerate thug life more than others, it doesn't make everyone, or even most people in those groups thugs. Far from it.

Stun guns just aren't that effective; the barbs may not penetrate clothing, and many require that you actually be within arm's reach of the individual to be stunned. People have died from being hit with a taser or stun gun. You will notice that police carry both types of weaponry.
