It also is on Facebook and other social media outlets, and has not been taken down.

I'll edit this:

My concern is not the message per sé, although it is concerning. Rather, it is that similar messages are allowed to stay, or not stay, based on the political interests of the specific web site in question. This is an important debate issue, mainly because the Internet has become the most powerful media outlet the world has ever known. And, they are run by some of the wealthiest entrepreneurs. Therefore, when wealth dictates a specific political bent, we all lose!

Agreed.

I really fail to see the problem.
We ALL down to the last man, woman or child on this planet originated from one family of 8 persons (descended from only 2 persons in the beginning) that were saved from the flood that wiped out all the population, the prior surface features of the planet and raised totally new continents, mountain ranges, valleys ...... giving the physical world we know today.

All that is different between 2 or more individuals is VIEWPOINT!

There is no such thing as White American, Black American, Mexican American ........ IF your AMERICAN you are AMERICAN FIRST and ONLY. Anything else is simply a detractor from common ancestry.

I just got back from vacation and read that, Capt. 45. I just about fell off of my chair. Sometimes in order to take things serious we need to remember that a sense of humor is okay and when used properly can be a tension breaker. Well played... ;D

Well I read this post several times and I have a few minor comments .
1- No one want's the police to injure anyone , I started when the home town kid was picked for the job, This could be good or bad. But you had local feed back on the choice.
2- My dad an mum were both from England in the early 1900s An they were just americans just  like the other people in our area no matter were they were from.
3 -we were never to use racial slang of any kind, that would get you a fast slap on the side of your head.
4- I spent 21+ years in the army and over 33 years as a cop , I Never shot anyone as a cop, a few heads were knocked, we used the slepper hold as taught then, had saps, clubs leather gloves , but I never smacked anyone who did not have it coming and if another officer lost his temper we would pull em off.
5 -the last chiefs job that I interviewed for 7  times as they the (Hiring)  board could not believe I was not biased in some way. I finally said to the board that as a matter of fact I guess I am biased against 1 group. THE Board look like they ate a canary. I told them I did not care what color,race ,sex (any person) was, but could and had followed orders from all. BUT I TOLD them I don't like A**holes. I GOT THE JOB. At my age now I am put aback by how all people act!!. I won't keep on.
