  1. Agree with the “denier” language. A bad choice of words that tends to shut down dialogue. It would be great if we could refrain from that type of approach and instead try to bring someone around the old fashioned way - by convincing them with facts. And there are plenty of facts to support the claim that systemic racism is more of an issue than some in here may believe. Regarding the second bolded, do it anyway. I for one would like to see that stuff.
  2. Interesting article worth a read... Systemic racism explained: Four dimensions of racism and how to be part of the solution Author: Brittany Falkers Published: 10:11 PM PDT August 5, 2020 Updated: 9:56 AM PDT August 7, 2020 PORTLAND, Ore. — The death of George Floyd has forced many white Americans to reflect on what racism looks like in our country. Most of us have been taught about racism through a narrow lens, whether that’s through our schooling, socialization, or what we see in the media. But it’s just not that simple. Racism takes many forms. Before we
  3. See, I agree with this as well. There are legitimate instances of systemic racism, or whatever you want to call it, and I'm pretty sure Jon would agree to that as well. But he's right - the way it is used by Liberals as a cudgel against Conservatives causes that legitimate issue to be instantly nullified. Far from me to say what blacks should do, but I honestly think they'd be better served if they presented systemic racism without insinuating that whites are consciously doing it. And yes, backs and Liberals do make this insinuation, using words like "oppression" which implies conscious ac
  4. Great topic. Personally I don’t like the word “systemic”. It implies, to me at least, that the racism is somehow codified in what our systems are built on - ie “laws”. And there isn’t any racism today in law. We’ve slayed that beast thankfully. In today’s America it is illegal to discriminate based on immutable characteristics like race and sex. So if you think of our systems from a legalistic standpoint, there is no systemic racism. What I’ve learned over the years, however, is that “systemic racism” doesn’t have to apply to laws. It could simply apply to a general assessment of o
  5. Exactly. That’s why I put this guy on ignore. He’s not a good faith poster.
  6. What are your thoughts on why the mask mandate hasn’t been lifted?
  7. CNN is showing remarkable objectivity and fairness on the Chicago shooting. Very strange.
  8. CDC Director said a couple days ago that vaccinated people “don’t carry the virus... it’s in the data”. Today Fauci says the opposite, that they don’t know yet if vaccinated people carry the virus and that’s why the mask mandates haven’t been lifted. Which is it?
  9. Chelsea Clinton calls on Tucker to be banned from Facebook. https://townhall.com/tipsheet/rebeccadowns/2021/04/15/chelsea-clinton-wants-tucker-carlson-banned-from-facebook-n2588005
  10. Cop has to be 100% sure the kid has a gun in his hand and ready to shoot. It’s a subtle paradigm shift that has to happen. Will it mean more cops being shot at? Probably. But that’s where we are.
