>> Today is Warning: date() [function.date]: It is not safe to rely on the system's timezone settings. You are *required* to use the date.timezone setting or the date_default_timezone_set() function. In case you used any of those methods and you are still getting this warning, you most likely misspelled the timezone identifier.

Thanks again to Dawn Trice for taking the time to reaffirm the dangers of racial and ethnic profiling (“From any angle, racial profiling is still wrong,” Metro Dec. 8).
Experts have used people’s fears to advocate for discrimination against and segregation of African-Americans, and they have used people’s fear to advocate for discrimination against and internment of Japanese-Americans.
In 1988 Congress paid all internment survivors reparations. This past summer, the Senate apologized for failing to pass anti-lynching legislation.
Hopefully, the American government will learn from its history that mistreatment of its own citizens is never acceptable, even if is for the purpose of security.
