  1. You are insulting minorities and immigrants in my case that succeeded in life through hard work and struggle. Some of us experienced racism, some of us experienced homelessness to get personal through bad luck and other factors. Thank God I did not meet people like you or some socialist on the other side to keep repeating the big lie that the reason I am not succeeding is because of the system. I was lucky in that aspect and it never once crossed my mind to steal or do something illegal for my benefit. Is funny what happens when you put your mind to being productive. My first job was as a

  2. One asshole cop killed a black guy... Thousands of Wanksta's decide to burn down shopping centers. Why Are black people walking into the stereotypical label they need to escape? How does it improve race relations, when you go burn down businesses that have had nothing to do with Floyd's death. Some of them owned by black people? With 1000 people dying a day from Covid, we don't have time for this silly distraction.

  4. Of course you see no racism. Many however see the colour of the officer and the colour of the person he killed and ask is that related go what you only see as bad. They do this because they have seen a repeat pattern of behaviour with white police and blacks. You appear to choose to see only your vision and not concede other people may see other things.In so doing you make the thread about your vision and dismiss any other. So now what.? You saw no racism. Poof it never happened?Anger and fear are incited by what people think they see not what you tell them they should see. For this rea

  8. You can shrug this off as media hype if there were isolated protests and riots. They were protesting in Salt Lake City!!!! Dozens of cities participated. The media can't create a narrative about an obvious murder by cop caught on video. The reaction to these murders seem to be gaining traction. Revolutions are larger than the inciting incident. WW1 wasn't really about Franz Ferdinand.

  9. Well he was charged with 2nd Degree murder. The George Floyd killer wasn't even charged with 2nd Degree Murder. BTW, I remember this was news. It speaks to the same problem.

  11. This narrative that white people are killed at a higher percentage is a red herring. Even if it was relevant, it should just bolster the idea that Cops are just trigger happy thugs and their authority needs to be checked. I think when Whitey, in all his/her privilege says that a POC's fear when they encounter police is statistically unfounded, they're not being helpful. We have two incidents of outright murder of POCs at the hands of police. (George Floyd and Breonna Taylor) Show the example of an innocent white person being murdered by the police that somehow minimizes the outrag

  12. I saw some data here that shows this perception to be false; more "whites" killed by police. It only makes sense given the population. But I do not believe that data. It too is false. Instead of by skin colour, it should be compared by level of poverty, education, and social factors like being raised with a father, etc. I believe in these things more.

  13. There is racism in America (and Canada too, for that matter) and sure, that sucks, but it isn't institutionalized. White cops aren't cruising the streets looking for blacks to shoot as a matter of policy or even as a general rule. Yet somehow we're being brain-trained to believe that's the case. If we could somehow put the kibosh on that lie the commies of BLM would be neutered and the commies of antifa wouldn't have race riots to hide in. That's my point.

  14. That is very true, we have it in our DNA to always go back to tribalism. It is a survival instinct. Sometimes it is an automatic response in every community and group that's why conversation is important in order to calibrate our opinions and views.

  15. Good luck on that one. You make a lot of assumptions about a hell of a lot of people and what they have experienced in their lives.. Read it back. Where do you get off telling any black person how they should feel? Is your idea of educating them telling them what they should feel? Why stop there? Tell gays, Jews, women, Chinese, aboriginal, Muslims, any group you can think of how they should feel. Go on tell them all. Tell them their experiences are not real, only what you tell them is.Good luck on that. Oh come now Dog you wanna teach blacks to listen to Elvis and pretend they don't kno

  17. "Antifa, the extreme anarchist-communist movement, has rioting down to an art. The first broken window is the blood in the water for looters to move in. When the looting is done, those carrying flammable chemicals start fires to finish the job. Footage recorded in Minneapolis and other cities show militants dressed in black bloc— the antifa uniform — wielding weapons like hammers or sticks to smash windows. You see their graffiti daubed on smashed up buildings: FTP means ‘Fuck the Police’; ACAB stands for ‘All Cops Are Bastards’; 1312 is the numerical code for ACAB." Once we get the above

  18. Looking at the more complete video something pops up. When this case gets to court the jury will see all the video. So these people and organizations from BLM to Antifa to looky-loo come-alongs, to Big Mama from the hood looking to loot some new underwear and a wide-screen TV are going to be gifted a new excuse to 'tear down the house' when the verdict comes out. It's doubtful what the jury sees will justify the punishment those who are basing their decisions on the tiny edit of video the media has been letting the average person see will be demanding. The media may call them o

  19. Honestly, you should take a breath. Given that no-one is responsible for his death until the courts decide on it, your support for criminal activity and loathing for those who are trying to prevent it is just an indication of your hysterical bias.

  20. The entire narrative that has angered the Black community is that police are disproportionately arresting and abusing Black people, esp black men. The only actual evidence to support this are the statistics which show blacks are 2.5 times more likely to be killed by police than whites, and individual cases which make it into the media. But the disproportionate statistics can be easily understood in the context that black crime in the US is wildly disproportionate to their population, which would naturally mean they'd have more unfriendly (violent) interactions with police. For example, In

  21. If a mob gathers around your car, blocking it from moving, screaming abuse, throwing things at your car, pounding on the car, what is the likelihood you'll just smile and wave vs stepping on the gas?

  22. The idea that 'one bad cop doesn't reflect reality', while true, moves the framework of public discussion back in time when people looked at things like data, representation and so on responsibly. We left that world long ago, and embraced a world where mass anger could be stoked by: -Stereotypes, rather than data (Ronald Regan's welfare queens) -Fear of a permissive legal system (George HW Bush's "Willie Horton" ad) -Hated of immigrants (The present US administration's stoking of fear against Mexicans, and in Canada the overstatement of the impact of border crossings) I would like t

  23. It does not look like a documentary, just individuals that are considered role models in their own community. They make millions of dollars talking about violence, shootings, drug deals on the back of poor people and young kids that have no direction in life. The kids go to prison or end up in the ground and they get rich. Take a look at what is trending on you tube in the rap music section and rarely you notice a video talking about something positive or constructive. It is very uncomfortable and takes critical thinking skills to talk about this aspect. Is easier to say "white supr

  24. Coming to a protest and screaming at United States service members while wearing a British flag (see picture). I am just curious to hear this please, maybe I am not too enlightened to understand. Explain this logic, why is it when a criminal cop does a heinous act we are told there is a problem with the whole police force however when criminal looters burn cities down we are told is racist to point that out and we should shut our mouth ? Or when civilians throw Molotov cocktails at police: https://newyork.cbslocal.com/2020/05/31/molotov-cocktail-brooklyn-ny/ . All you intellectuals

  25. The phoney war between Trump and the platforms is like pro wrestling - pretending to hate each other is part of the act. The faux liberals of Facebook in particular stand to make a fortune from Trump's campaign and a man who found the conservative faith rather late in life needs to bypass the pesky fact-checkers of TV and print. Twitter has been very good to him and vice versa.

  26. I guarantee that for many of these rioters, the main idea was "I'm gonna gets me a new TV and a phat pair of kicks". As I watched the looting of a liquor store I was truly disgusted seeing these guys make off with cases of Bud Light....I mean really, don't these guys know the value of a good scotch?

  27. The death of Floyd was not on the minds of those black thieves at all. Most of those blacks could careless about Floyd being murdered by a white cop. It gave many black thugs an excuse to go cause mayhem and chaos. Breaking into stores and stealing merchandise was not about fighting for justice for blacks or for Floyd. It was a disgusting thing to watch a lot of blacks stealing and totally ignoring as to what the demonstration was all about. And those people want respect? Ha-ha.

  28. Black people sure do enjoy killing each other. A black person living in Chicago probably has a 100% chance of getting murdered by another black. Thousands of blacks murder each other every year all over America but we never see any riots over it. Why is that? I guess that as long as blacks are killing blacks all is good. But yet let some white guy or cop kill a black person and the shit is guaranteed to hit the fan. And where is Al Sharpton or Reverend Jackson on all of those murders, eh? Nowhere to be found. Those two are racists against white people alright. They both appear to be trying to

  29. Honestly.... Teach these blacks to strap up... You got the second amendment. If you see a cop strangling a black man, you shoot him dead. If you got someone recording, that's self defense. You were saving the guys life. I think cops would think twice, if the bullets started flying back at them. The bottom line, is if you use excessive force, you loose your job. If you use excessive force to purposely kill someone, you should be hung.

  31. The rioters are just strings being manipulated by the mainstream media. More white people have been killed by police this year. Not one instance has ever been highlighted on the news by the media. These riots are also the product of illogical months long stay at home orders.

  32. I doubt it, not with the shit-show south of us to provide a reason for repeating the phrase "there but for the grace of whatever go us". The Canadian Overton window is shifting away from politicians and towards expertise and our politicians seem more than happy to follow. Canadian politicians seem to have a better awareness of their limits and when to shut up and probably because they know Canadians are more aware of these limits too.

  33. But these race-baited riots only seem to be happening in hubs controlled by what I'll call Progressive Socialist (or if you would prefer leftist) regimes. Coincidence, I guess.

  34. Actually a lot of the anti-immigration crowed, want to give black people a fair chance... Since they have been around for centuries. We don't see black people as invaders, because they were brought in as slaves. If some white guy guts killed by a black cop, we don't go apeshit burning down entire neighborhoods. They get the thug label, because they act like thugs. I want them to rise above their stereotype, but they don't seam to get the fact a country with 331 million, is occasionally going to had a bad cop. Don't blame society... Blame the cop When you burn down innocent businesses in

  35. I have not presented any conspiracies. The corruption and failure of the UN is substantiated fact. It's on public domain for you to find. There is no conspiracy about a voyeur exposing his shortcomings. The only conspiracy if any transpired before he exposed himself and spread rumours about how big he was. I already knew how small he was before he put his coat on. You seem to forget Elenor Roosevelt stood up to this failure to protect my people. She exposed his tiny pee pee long ago for my people. Save your defense of the UN for someone else thanks. By the way this does not mean I do not have

  36. Tell that to aboriginals, over- taxed citizens, people who have been injured by federal policies and not provided any proper compensation for those injuries. Tell it to our war vets, fishermen, or all us now under quarantine because this government squandered our trust and taxes by not assuring proper pandemic planning. You see benevolence...sorry I see people in positions of trust who have let us down by putting their individual need to be re- elected come first and put before our needs...compromising us.
