Seems weird to act like racism in America can only be in one of two places. Either as bad as it was before and during the civil Rights movement or meh not that bad.

 

 

Either Bull Conner is turning the fire hoses and dogs on you, or you have nothing to complain about.

Just go play tennis, shine your gold bar, and MYOB.  Leave my diverse family alone.

That is not talking down to him, just giving a persoective from someone who has lived through that time and knows what is and what isn't.

 

This is exactly what the black community needs, another white, fox news consuming baby boomer telling them how it is.

Hey guys, racism was worse 50 years ago, so stop complaining about it being worse than it was 3 years ago.

Boomer logic

Didn’t know you used to be black. 

As a matter of fact some of my family members are, also Asian, and Hispanic.  You do not have to be a POC to see what went on over a half century ago.

Came across this and thought a few of you would enjoy it.

BJJ has had enough of a jump in popularity over the last couple of years that even many of my "normie" friends at least understand what it is. 

When I first started, most would just come up to me asking "How's you jiu-jitsu stuff going?" while making karate chop motions with their hands. 

They finally got the point at work when I demonstrated a loop choke and a kimura on one of the radiology residents.

I don’t mean to be a **** when I say this but you do know that a jury of 6-12 private citizens decides who gets put to death, right??

 

Yes, and as someone who deals with the outcome of jury verdicts on a regular basis, I can tell you that is ******* terrifying.

My dad is black.  I was a shortstop for the Yankees.  I helped Rosa Parks to her seat at the front of the bus.  

Boomers and dishonesty on the internet- a match made in heaven.

And reading the book I mentioned last night, I didn't realize how much of "scientific" evidence that sends many people to death row is mostly horsesh*t and isn't scientific at all.  Bite marks being primary among those.

We should all be thankful that the younger generation has absolutely no concern for the opinions of right wing baby boomers.

Dems should live Trump for this.

All respect for military and vets, but they are not the entire country. There are other areas of need as well.

The budget and spending is a joke from both sides of the aisle.

I wouldn't let our government touch my finances with a 10 foot pole.

if you're bored today, this is a good video

 

I'm about 40 minutes in and this is infuriating. This guy hits on why I think all these politicians who think we need to make minor changes to the current system need to be run out of town.

Also, dude reminds me of John Oliver in how he delivers info.

just thinking about every media outlet that does the 'ole "but how will we pay for it?" for literally any public policy engineered for the average person in a world where the industrialized countries invented nearly twenty trillion dollars to bailout the assets of the planet's wealthiest citizens really gets me just wishing for revolution.
