    Now lets see if anyone that 'claimed' it was a noose will step up an offer an apology for being wrong.
    The "it was a noose, racist NASCAR people etc." got X amount of airtime.
    The "it wasn't a noose" will get <1% of X in airtime.

    What exceptions?  Out of the 1004 people killed in 2019 by police officers, less than 250 were black and only 9 of those black men were unarmed.  Does that make it okay?  It depends on the circumstance.  General racism toward black men by police officers is a blatantly false perception, it is not reality, and statistics do not support it.  Anecdotal evidence is the only thing supporting the idea of generalized racism towards the black community.
    It is hard to reduce something that is already so minuscule.  The perception of racism is what is pervasive, because people are taught to perceive it.
    Asian Americans are the most negatively impacted group by Affirmative Action.  Aside from that, your statement has no bearing on the fact that it is a systemically racist policy and it demeans minorities and literally ingrains into law the racist belief that they are too stupid to make it on their own and so we must dumb things down to give them a leg up.  Yeah, I call bull.
    Qualified Immunity is bad law, but has nothing to do with racism.  It is an inherent negative impact to the civil liberties of anyone who interacts with the police.
    Okay; agree to disagree on that one.
    Protesters are fine and in their right, but rioters and looters are evil and don't care at all about what happened.  George Floyd was not a victim of racism, and to suggest he was takes away from the real problems, like under-trained, under-accountable and overly-pompous police officers.  The lack of quality police officers is exacerbated by the fact that mass publication of inaccurate perceptions of racism is turning quality candidates away.  People are rightfully afraid of losing everything over the false perception of racism.

    @Godless,
    My memes are meant as comedy/parody.  Yours don't seem to have comic intent.  Am I missing something?
    Aside from that, is your first meme in reference to BLM?  If so, the core of their movement is not that racism = bad; they want reparations in various forms and are hiding behind the guise of racism = bad.  Almost everything they have asked for would be an inappropriate response to past or current racism.
    I'm really confused by your second meme.  Institutionalized racism is 100% fact and needs to be eliminated.  A prime form of this is found in Affirmative Action laws.
    Riots have nothing to do with racism.  BLM is only focused on racism against blacks, not everyone.  True racism in this country exists, but is rare; most often, events/actions are merely interpreted as racist and people are being taught to do so.  As terrible as what happened to George Floyd was, it was entirely due to improper action by police officers who have been arrested and should be punished properly; I haven't seen one iota of evidence to suggest any form of racism was involved.

    Just saw this Ben Shapiro commentary on that video:
    "If you want Jamal to have the same educational opportunities as Kevin perhaps you should have vouchers for public schools... charter schools... or break up the teacher's union... I want Jamal to have better schools and the same educational opportunities as Kevin but the Democrats do not."

    I didn't vote for Trump last time, because I thought he was lying and would actually end up being a leftist, so I went third party.  That said, I'm definitely voting for him this time; I feel he has proven enough that he truly cares about our country and wants it to remain the greatest country in the world, and is implementing good policies.  Were you planning to vote third party this November?  Just curious.

    That’s been my experience as well.  In the conservative articles I’ve read, I’ve probably seen four or five “look at those filthy hypocrites!” columns for every apparently sincere “oh, crap, this is gonna come back to bite us in two weeks” column.

    I don't get out much these days (pun intended) but from what I have seen and heard, the newfound worry over the spread of disease is merely an attempt to publicize the blatant hypocrisy of the left and the incompetence of their so called 'medical professionals'.

    IMO, that factoid is the biggest reason for the disparities and unequalness.  Boys and girls need fathers.  Without fathers, boys find a father figure wherever they can - often on the streets from a strong gang leader.  Without fathers, girls find males to attach to wherever they can, and however they can.  Which means finding boys to love them, by having sex with them.
    Whenever someone wants to compare this or that demographic, be it along racial, cultural, income, education, religious lines, or what have you, I look to the families both groups come from.
    Dang - it's almost like The Proclamation On The Family knows what it's talking about or something.

    Waaaay too simplistic.
    In Florida, for example, politicians try their very best to preserve the "red lines" to keep their House Representative voting bloc.  Republicans don't want black people to cross into their line because they always vote Democrat.  Democrats don't want black people to move out of their line because they always vote Democrat.  So in this scenario, the problem can be solved by black people voting ideas and not parties - unfortunately, they don't.  Joe Biden's statement "You ain't black" keeps communities segregated.
    Another reason - 75% of black children grow up without fathers.  Statistics show that fatherless boys tend to run afoul of the law.  Also, fatherless households tend to be in poverty and rely on government aid.  People living under government aid tend to vote Democrat.  Why are black children growing up without fathers?  Ask the Democrats.

    There are certainly flaws in the premises involved, but I finally understood what he meant by systemic racism.  This particular perspective of systemic racism is exacerbated by leftist policies.

    Where do you get the basis for these statements?
    Here's food for thought... if you precondition a segment of your population to believe that the cops are out to get them, then they do something illegal and the cop comes to get them... what do you think they're gonna do?  Come meekly?

    Yup.  I suggest an easy fix would be to replace most university education with vocational training.  Especially on-the-job vocational training, with gradual certification.  People can do the work and get paid to learn and get better, and they can choose how to what professional extent they wish to go.  This already works extremely well for programmers; it can work well for others too!
    I can imagine this is at least partially true, in practice; however, I disagree that racism is at the core.  I really appreciated learning from former Officer Tatum's perspective on this topic in general.

    It is true that you don't see cops treating white people like that.  That is due to our race-baiting left wing media, who can't forward an agenda by highlighting unjust deaths of white people, but can help create worldwide riots when showcasing an unjust black death.
    It is absolute hogwash that it never happens.  The hidden notion that bad cops only target blacks is woefully misinformed and misguided.

    That is rather the opposite of truth. The real truth is that if George Floyd had been white, his death would have merited local media coverage, at most.
