I understand peoiple want to talk about the tragedy and it definitely has taken on a Michael Bay/Jerry Bruckheimer vibe, but maybe MGoBlog isn't the best resource. These posts are veering dangerously toward politics and racial/national discussions that, frankly, never lead to anything positive. Just my two cents, but maybe create one thread and talk about it there if you must, but there are myriad other resources and avenues for these discussions beyond a sports blog.
