  1. I would respectfully invite you to consider that civility is the lubricant that allows people who disagree with one another to have fruitful conversations. I worked for more than 3 hours on that post. I am not perfect and neither is it, but it's hard to have a useful conversation with a person who is as angry as you seem to be. I hope that, at some point in time, you will be able to calm down, and if that happens I'll be happy to engage with you about this or any other matter. In the meantime, I wish you all the best.

  5. It's posturing, simply put. For Nike, Pepsi, the CIA or someone to stamp "we care" on their packages has a marginal cost of zero. The net energy that is diverted to these discussions takes away from real change...

  6. The history is not forgotton because of the legacy impact on American cities and society. Other elements of systemic racism endure to the point of Global Affairs Canada jumping on board for its own political purposes in Canada. Going down the U.S. rabbit hole for issues in Canada just continues the trend. Odd....

  7. This is getting off topic....but if you want: Redlining and racial covenants were widespread in the U.S. (don't know about Canada) throughout much of the 20th century, and my main reason for choosing that among several other examples is the long term economic and social impact on American cities. Housing projects, interstate highway locations, zoning, schools, etc. were all part of systemic planning. https://www.npr.org/2017/05/03/526655831/a-forgotten-history-of-how-the-u-s-government-segregated-america https://mappingprejudice.umn.edu/what-are-covenants/ Several U.S. ju

  8. Thank you kindly, I will look at that. No argument there. Their platform is on the web, so it changes with the tide. https://www.snopes.com/fact-check/blm-terrorist-rosenberg/ Every video that's pimped by BLM always starts after there's a problem. "Oh look at what the cops are doing to this winner!" When the whole story finally comes out it's nothing like they said. They use stories like Brionna Taylor, Rayshard Brooks, Michael Brown, George Floyd etc which are all textbook examples of what not to do when the cops come. They also lie and say that race was

  10. The United States already has a well defined experience with civil rights groups, activism, and black power organizations going back over 100 years. BLM is just the current iteration of this American narrative that last rose to wide national prominence in the 1960's & '70's (Black Panther Party for Self Defense & Operation Rainbow/Push). Instead of cop watching with loaded firearms, BLM uses modern technology and social media networks to advocate and seek support across demographic groups for "police reform", protests, civil unrest (riots), etc., something the Black Panther Party

  11. 1. Ok, but right of 40 years ago when they nationalized an oil company, owned airlines, a truck company, a hotel chain and so on. But ok. 2. Then... beware the trolls. People who describe the Liberals as "far left" don't live in reality. Most of your post makes sense. Actual Marxism seems to be on the rise, btw. And a lot of the nutty right seems to think that rightist policy opposes billionaires... specifically the only five who exist: Soros, Gates, Zuckerberg, Bezos and that Twitter hermit guy.
