Why?

I understand that politics will provide differences among friends. That is accepted. What I call foul or unnecessary is when friends post articles/videos that have negative racial overtones. We can debate all day long - not a problem. But to post items with vocals containing hatred and negative stereotypes negates all points you are intending. This belief is for all shades of us. Stop the crap. Ask if this will offend friends and families; and then ask why it would. The why is beginning. The why will (and if you continue to pursue the why) tell and show the need of more thought and understanding.
