She was asked to assign seats. The last names of the parents of the black kids were started with "R" and "W". Unless the white kids names started with "X", "Y", or "Z", then they would likely be in the front of the bus, assuming alphabetical order. Of course, that would assume that the black kids had the same last name as their parents... :Confused:

(Regarding Plan B)

But, I have heard that the pill causes abortion.
Do you remember starting a plant out of a lima bean in Kindergarten? You would get a clear cup, a paper towel and water and then press the bean between the rolled paper towel and cup. The bean that would become a plant would sprout out a little green, and look like a comma (if I remember correctly). That was life.
That's how I see a zygote, only infinitely more valuable. It's alive and becoming. That's how I see a zygote.

I believe the media is the cause of problems when they will add and take away from a story to make it so dramatic. How do we know this really happened the way the article speculates? Do we know the whole story? Maybe these kids were causing trouble? maybe not? How do we know that these blacks were taking up a seat each when there was no room for the white kids to sit? Maybe that was their plan to have no room for the white kids and to cause trouble already the first week of school..Most white kids refuse to ride the bus because the blacks cause problems for them..(Well in NC at Least) .. My son was stabbed in the face with a pencil when he was 7 by a black and nothing was done..My daughter was shoved up against a door by a black girl for no reason...I guess they live by Power by intimidation...The NAACP always comes around when they can benefit somehow monetary. Always trying to intimidate white people and make them feel like the bad guys...Always trying to move the black person up the chain in jobs because they are black without having the proper experience or education...Very sad that they always pull the race card when things don't go their way..Why can't they strive in life under their own merits and not because they are black? We will see if the people get to hear the whole story or only bits and pieces that the media feeds to them just to get people stewing...This is what causes more hatred then anything else..The MEDIA!!!

You know, it would take a brainless person not to realize that there is still racism in the world, it's all around everywhere you look. Now, I agree, it was wrong what happened, but on the other hand, if it were a white person that was forced to the back of the bus and the black kids got to sit up front, and us white people stood up and said something then we would all be called racist. For years I have heard the black community scream and shout that they aren't being treated equally and fairly, that they will rule the country and the white people will be slaves. Lets look at this now, welfare, food stamps, government help, it all goes to the black people. I remember my mother walked into the food stamp office one day and proved that she was not making enough money to even pay rent, and she had 3 kids. She was denied. A black woman came walking up behind her with gold chains, gold teeth, rings on every finger, and she walked out with a handful of food stamps. The white people are denied more government help then the black people. Blacks can call us names (Cracker) and bully kids around and nothing will happen to them, but if a white person does it, then they (black people) get all upset and want to sue and get the NAACP involved. They think that they have more rights then we do because they were in slavery. Well look-a-here sweet hearts I am 1/2 native American and my fore fathers (Indians) were also in slavery, they were forced from their homes and their lands, beat, whipped, and put in barricades were they suffered. Most died and only a few lived. If you haven’t heard of the "Trail where they cried" (Better known as "Trail of Tears") then read it. The white men did it, but you don't here me complaining or crying. We don't have an organized group that will come in and save the day like NAACP and Jessie Jackson. The NAACP is all about every one being equal, well when have they ever helped a white person out? Slavery was over 50 years ago, DROP IT. Move on with your life and quite holding the past THAT YOU WERE NEVER A PART OF. That was then and this is now, so shut the hell up. As for this bus driver, just shoot her and be done with it. You may think I am racist, but my best friend for over 11 years is black and he feels the same way I do (Yes I asked him about this). He doesn't look back on it at all. Oh and one other thing...Why isn't there a White History Month? Some one please tell me. I say we organize a community and protest for a White history month.

It is a very, very sad day indeed when people exist such as those posting comments for this article.

The whole story has not necessarily been told. There are many possibilities.

When I was a little girl if I was misbehaving or acting up with my friends enough to irritate the bus driver we would all be forced to sit at the front of the bus so the driver could keep a close eye on us. Kids obviously hated being up front.

Who's to say the white kids weren't misbehaving in some way and were made to sit up front for that reason and thus the black students had to sit in the rear?

Why do blacks automatically assume racism?

Why do blacks automatically assume the victim role?

This victim's mentality must stop. It is a chain that holds us all back. I am disgusted when I see my brothers and sisters knee jerk reactions to anything that could be perceived as racism. Anything that could be perceived as "holding us down" which, as everybody else knows, is just a form of excuse.

I will not pass judgment until I have heard the whole story from both sides, however I will pass judgment now on the people looking to use this story as an excuse to assume their favorite role of victim.

You are the problem.

Just for all of those who think the KKK is soo bad, read your history. The KKK was a group of white men then protected WOMEN. They even protected Black Women. Over the years it has turned into what people think are racist. This is not true. Read your history before you bash people, I have done years of study on them just for this reason.

Blacks and whites will never get along peacefully because the Blacks don't want it to happen. They are the ones that want more rights than anyone else..They could not function as equals because they want all of the power..The blacks stay segregated because they choose to stay that way. They don't want anything to do with the whites until they think they can get something from the whites for nothing...White people bow down to them and cater and fear them thinking that it is what we owe them. We owe them what they have earned...If they don't earn the respect then they don't get any in return...Jesse Jackson only comes out of this cave when there is a camera involved. Anyways! What is his job? I don't believe in this time and day that a bus driver would be that bold and blantent to tell the black kids to the back of the bus..There had to be a reason and the bus driver will never get to air his side because he has already been tried and convicted by the media. Some Blacks look for racial discrimation in everything they see and do...They expect it to happen and it seems some like the attention it brings to them. This country is so full of hate and disgust...I wish people would put their energies into something more constructive...Wow..Are we hurting that bad for news?

One problem with affirmative action is that it leaves people wondering whether their doctor, electrician, etc. is actually qualified--or if he was allowed to bypass some tests and take others an extra time or two with someone ignoring a few errors and letting him pass. Honestly, it does not help a group of people at all to say "the only way they can get into college/get a job is if we set aside the usual rules for this college/this profession." I know some very smart and very talented black people. But I honestly have a little hesitation in wondering whether a person met the usual standards. (My optometrist in Chicago was black; I do not hesitate to use black professionals. But then, optometry isn't life or death.)

short haired women keep angels out of church.

short hair on women and long hair on men cause angels to not operate the gifts of the spirit listed in 1 cor.12.

1 Corinthians 11:5 But every woman praying or prophesying with her head unveiled dishonoreth her head; for it is one and the same thing as if she were shaven.

what this means is women with short hair dishonor their husbands.1 Corinthians 11:3 But I would have you know, that the head of every man is Christ; and the head of the woman is the man; and the head of Christ is God. The unveiled part means short hair as found in vs. 15.

Quote# 14192

rock music is a product of a disoriented, despairing, drug-related sex-mad generation. There’s no question about that. The first big rock singer was Elvis Presley, who killed himself with drugs and who went through women, you know, continuously. And he gave rise to the whole rock generation. He was the first, and his whole act was sexual, sensual, you know; it was terrible.

Elvis Presley, a Monarch mind-controlled slave, believed he had a twin that communicated with him spiritually. In the Angel Times magazine, (Oct. issue), a childhood friend of Elvis states that Elvis communicated with beings as a child. These being had showed Elvis a vision of dancing, and of people "dressed in white with colors all around." While it is popular to dismiss the vanishing twin phenomena with superficial medical explanations, or with alien theories, at least of some of the phenomena is the result of the Illuminati’ s massive system of abuse, where they need babies for sacrifice, experiments and programming.

Sex with the same sex -- homosexuality or lesbianism -- This type of sexual activity has been "coming out" in our culture for the past two decades. Not only do we now have Gay and Lesbian Pride events, not only do we have open ads in certain magazines and papers for homosexual encounters, but we have had major actors and actresses either coming out themselves, or acting in shows [like Ellen ] that feature "coming out". Not only are each of these gay people infested with demons, but the body called America, is infected in God's eyes, because we allow it and encourage it.

Dr. Brown observed that "violence and murder go hand in hand with demons of homosexuality. I don't know why that is, it is just a fact."

What happened to the Israelies when they went and fornicated with women from foreign tribes? They brought curses among themselves. These women came from tribes that worshipped idols and man made gods. A non Christian is carrying demons around them.
Simply put, you either have the Spirit of God living inside you, or you have demons living inside you. Its one or the other. both cannot be living inside you at once and there is no grounds for a neutral zone.

[Regardign the Fox News journalists who have been kidnapped, 'Your anger and hatred is horribly misdirected if you take any solace in the death of these two men. They are working stiffs, just like most of us.']

They are not working stiffs. They are partisan hacks that work for Fox News. To call them working stiffs insults millions of Americans. 50 bucks say that they have mail order psuedo ivy-league degrees that were bought b/c their parents are rich motherfarkers. I'm not saying that makes them deserve their fate. Working with foxnews however, does. As a matter of fact I hope they bleed extra slow just for that reason.

(In response to over-the-counter availability of Plan B for women 18 and over, but prescription only for teenagers)

"It's just irresponsible for the FDA not to see that," said Carrie Gordon Earll, senior analyst for bioethics at Focus on the Family Action. "What this is going to do, very likely, is give a free pass to older men who want to prey on younger girls for sexual behavior. Plan B, in essence, becomes a free ticket to prey on teenage girls."

You can't sell your soul. You don't own it.

Your body and soul is either owned by Satan or God. The Devil will never buy something he already owns. God has purchased you with the blood of Christ, but you must accept this as the truth in order for the title to transfer. Or something like that.

Things like this are clever fiction and entertainig, but have little basis in truth.

I don't know if you meant the logical fallacies list or not, but, if you did...

Please, please, please no.

Those are like guns: to be used very, very rarely by only the most responsible of individuals (yourself included, probably). Being able to analyze an argument and discover which "then" clauses don't follow from their "if" counterparts and to identify the author's assumptions, among many other things, are much sounder than being able to say "ElChupacabra is making a Slippery Slope" or the like. Honestly, I think all of those fallacies can be reduced to three or four: B does not follow from A, a probability is not a certainty, incorrect facts, and "Strawman!"

Hate to rant like that, but from the first time I was taught the "logical fallacies list" in high school, I thought it had to be one of the educational establishment's dumbest moves in my lifetime. In any case, if people say you need to improve yourself as a debater, learning that list will probably have only the result of making you an infinitely more annoying opponent.

No matter that the Bible lays it out htere so clearly, he will question it. The Bible says that we have to have faith, but who cares, right? I mean, if we can rationalize everything away, then there's no need for faith"

Those dumb scenarios are no basis for the making of public policy. Hey, there are four men on the moon, one falls into a permanent coma. The rocket breaks down and the escape pod can only fit three. Which do you choose? Please.
