Re: The Thread of Democrats

The end of Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez’s revolution Joe Biden’s decisive drubbing of Bernie Sanders in the presidential primary squelched the socialist stirrings that had been percolating within the Democratic Party. It’s probably no coincidence, then, that three of Congress’s most far-left members, a...

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

Well, at least it's a plausible example of racism this time.

But yeah, his being an ex-cop and the treatment he received is open to many explanations, and not all of them will be racism.

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

I'm not aware of any new details in that story that would justify hunting him down, much less shooting him dead in the street. The video released shows him entering a construction site, having a look around, and then leaving. If he were my son I'd want their heads.

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

A judge told this woman he would let her go if she said she was selfish, and they have him asking her to do so on tape. Republicans want to end shutdowns. Trump has been using protests as rallies. In this context the judge's words were a gift from God. The real story here is how people are mislead i...

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

Well, I don't know how else to interpret your belief that just being white will mean having the narrative go your way. That may not be so problematic, except that it looks like it is becoming a majority opinion, and if the above study about damage to empathy is accurate, then at least some concern i...

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

Sorry Seabass, I don't know why I keep jumping on your posts like that. --f'n triggered. :lol: I think you're wrong, and possibly encouraging racism, but on the issues we are in agreement i.e. the system is disproportionately harmful to minorities. It is just that being white doesn't mean that the s...

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

No, it would be invisible like most people in prison for shooting/taking on cops. You don't get the benefits of the outrage machine just because you're white. --jfcoaps

I swear that's just racist, isn't it? :dunno:

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

Blacks suffer disproportionately under our legal system and have been hurt more than anyone else by the war on drugs. However, I hate how Seabass posted that right after an interesting bit on the dangers of uncritically preaching white privilege. It would be normal to assume that whites are to blame...

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

:funny: Imagine if they were white what the narrative would be. I don't have to imagine, and maybe you should save your laughter given that you do. I mean, how are you going to pretend to be unaware of how awful it is for anyone who has ever opened fire on a cop, save maybe a select few? Imagine if...

Re: Yet more problematic stuff

It's a poor example given that someone inside the apartment opened fire on the police. Do you not agree that regardless of a person's race, if they shoot at the police the police are likely to shoot back?

You should see them in Texas, they have signs about refusing the mark of the beast. :lol:
