    Re: Systemic Racism in America

    I'm glad they've done that. I wish them well! It looks like a fun adventure actually.

    But what they're going to discover, in the not too distant future, is that all the issues that plagued them...

    Re: Systemic Racism in America

    Jess I've been meaning to comment on your video about Jeffrey Deskovic.

    Upon watching I was immediately reminded of the Netflix series called "Making A Murderer", and the saga of Brendan Dassey...

    Trust me. I know you well enough to understand you aren't a white supremacist...and I wasn't thinking about you when I posted it. Oh, actually, what I thought was, "I hope Mike doesn't think I mean...

    Re: Systemic Racism in America

    Jess, come on. You listed things that are ostensibly lifted from some white nationalist manifesto and then dared a bunch of unnamed but obvious members to fall for the trap. How could I not be on...

    Re: Systemic Racism in America

    I don't think anyone here would actively agree with such a statement. And if they do, perhaps they aren't on the right forum.[/QUOTE]

    I could kiss you!:)

    I know we've been sort of butting heads over these issues, but I respect the hell out of you for exploring the other side of this stuff in earnest. I'd pay people to watch...

    Re: Systemic Racism in America

    Hey Tam, I've flipped thru a few of those books. I find them all to be very murky. And then they just continually double and triple and quadruple down on the murkiness, and it's suggested that if...

    The "next" time I say there is white genocide occurring will be the first time. I've never said that. Not once. Ever.

    No one pushed Mark away. He left on his own. He's a big boy and he has to take responsibility for that. You like to play the blame game though, so your analysis isn't surprising.

    Hey Jess, there are a little over 21 million black males in the U.S. Or at least there was in 2018.

    Last year, roughly 250 of them were shot by police.

    I'd prefer ZERO being shot by police,...

    Well, let me ask you a question: Do you like Chris Rock? Do you think he's funny?

    I think racism is a very real problem.

    But I resist the idea of systemic racism. No one has explained to me exactly which systems are racist and how. No one has showed me the law or policy...
