I'm not denying those things happen, I'm saying their happening is not as widespread a threat as the news would have you to believe.

Those things have always been happening. For decades.

It's finally amplified for you because today's news is 24/7.

You're basically saying that they should stamp "meat is murder" on every hamburger.

 

I would never equate or simplify the Minority Experience in America to just a slogan.

You have no clue what anyone else believes, or why they believe it.

I was corrected today, when I mentioned the "Black-out in NYC." He told me to say "power outage" because it's more PC. Completely serious about it too.

We're all going to be thought of as racist Grandpas by our grand-children... aren't we?

 

Yet, black Friday is a good thing. This can get confusing if you let the left take charge in reconstituting our language.

Except it doesn't. All non Brits were treated as second class citizens. Even from it's foundation no one started at the same place.

Yes those things happened for descendants decades

 I'm not denying that at all. I'm saying it's happening far less but amplified more.

Someone tells you that they feel unsafe because of their race, and you tell them that it's because of the news.

It's presumptuous and dismissive. 

I'm saying it's amplified by the media not solely due to the media .

What Rand Paul just did has made me take stock of just how much credibility he/the Republican party have lost in the last two two years. Before, I would have excused this because Paul is a libertarian and I gave him the benefit of the doubt and assumed he was principled in wanting to cut all spending, consequences be ****ed.

But after voting for the tax bill which is causing the ballooning deficit he's complaining about, I can't even take anything he says about cutting spending seriously. Dude's a ******* clown.

IThank God for cellphones and the news that it's actually getting shown more.

Also, you cannot relate your perceptions to other people's reality. It'll never be the same.

A Black man, Crispus Attucks was the first casualty in the Revolutionary War.

James Armistead Lafayette, an African-American spy, spied on the British in support of the Americans.

Sorry about that Statick.  I read threads from where I left off, so I saw his response first, the yours!

It's happening less, the fewer events are reported on 7 days cycles nonstop on top of articles and social media so that what are isolated events are ballooned into a systemic coordinated oppression targeting minorites with violence and death.
