Heheheh - sounds like damosa just got finished with his bachelors in cultural studies degree - ohhh so angry and righteous! Sure the real world is full of bad history and mistakes of the past. But the only thing that matters is what you do NOW with the situation you were dealt with. Sitting around pissing about how bad things are today because of past wrongs won't change a thing or do anything productive. Get out and DO something to make lives better today for the short period of history you do have control over.
I find the whole "gotta educate people" thing to be a total cop-out of our generation. We all too often go out and rail about injustices then go back to our happy little homes feeling like we made a stand. That's hogwash and we all know it. Action is the only thing that makes a difference - and that's muddy, ugly, involves working with fragile and flawed people, involves heart-breaking compromise, and often takes a long time. It's no where near as sexy as a 2 hour weekend fundraiser jog in your $200 nike outfits or passing a plate around at waterfront park while drinking $10 pbr hits.
And damosa - yeah criticizing dufus22 for no pic while yours looks as if it was probably pulcked from an 'angry goth' search on google images is a real classy move.
@PortlandAfoot - amen brother. I've seen some unbelievable traffic infractions that bikers have flaunted over the years. That's why I've been a HUGE proponent of having an identifying bike sticker along with annual registeration/safety checks.
They could be carried out by a licensed local bike shops to help job growth. That way we know that bikers have helmets, lights, and their bikes are in good working order. Further, with a reflective glow in the dark sticker with a number on it - their night visibility goes up, riders can be identified for infractions, and their bikes recovered if stolen.
