48. Sure we can.

I am SO, SO sorry about your friend. I hope the family will be okay (in Seattle, it's a good bet)!

RE: Nothing whites can do? Call them out, especially in public. EVERY. SINGLE. TIME. You'd be surprised at the "tough guys" (HAH!) in Wal-Mart, toting open carry pistols, getting totally embarrassed by little ole white ladies, young kids, AND store management.

That's only happened a few times that I know of in our particular crowd, although we embarrassed the shit out of one jerk at a nice restaurant and management made him leave, and once done by my 11 year old grandson in front of the Post Office! No violence has ensued, and the local cops back the sourdoughs (long-timers) way over the military bigots. It's really sorry that there are so many who are "in service" and we teach them how to kill but not how to live with other races/cultures. Of course, the military here doesn't even bother to teach newcomers to drive in the ice and snow, and they mostly account for about 80% of the "first snow of the year" rigs in ditches, trees, telephone poles........ Almost always see the little military sticker in the front window. Don't get me wrong. I LOVE our military folks, most of them, and the problems usually only arise when there's a buildup of troops (we're part of front line for Korea, Russia, etc.).

NO TOLERANCE FOR HATE SPEECH OR HATE CRIMES. (Map below from SPLC, and the 1 incident was anti-Samoan, in Anchorage.)
