How am I cherry picking when this is the view of the majority. White people everywhere feel sorry for black people as a whole in this country and allow them to get away with things I myself would never get away with. It isn't confined to a few areas. They have their own colleges, and they have their own privileges when it comes to law. If a black commits a crime such as burglary, it's because of inequality and oppression, not because he is a filthy criminal. Would you hear that if it was a white or an Asian? No, you wouldn't. Furthermore, if a white person doesn't listen or LIKE Hip Hop and just happen to like Country or Classical a lot more than anything else they're a racist. If I am Christian and I believe in 2nd amendment rights, guns, morals, the bible and certain types of dress.. I am a white racist republican who doesn't like black people. I am appalled by your ignorance. Do you guys really not see that this is all an agenda? White Americans are the only ones to hand themselves over on a silver platter. "Just take over my country, guys!" "Erase my history and let's act like we didn't make this country great!" "All blacks are discriminated against and victimized." Puhleeeeze. Lol. We should be united as Americans but we are divided by extremely obvious and dangerous purposeful racism. Quit trying to insult people on the sly oreo, and Triangle.... Are you so dumb that you are brainwashed and act on emotion alone? Do you want people to live in free houses and never have to work? Socialism isn't patriotic. You can think I am a troll or whatever you prefer to think of me as... I see above and around the bullshit.
@Oreo, Most black people put themselves into situations they shouldn't be in the first place. For example, " I am poor so I had to sell drugs." What a poor excuse to do wrong and harm their own community by getting many of their own brothers and sisters hooked on drugs like heroin. @ UtherPenguin, There is plenty of more examples of black on white racism going on around the entire country. For example, right before the Baltimore riots recently, there was a white guy in Dundalk, MD who was severely injured and almost killed. Now how much media coverage did this case get? Barely anything except for a few news appearances of this case on local news stations here. Yet, the Baltimore riots was covered by all news media organizations here in America. Then, just recently a cop was beaten unconscious by a suspect in which photos of the ordeal was shared through out social media and praised by the same people who are for "Black Lives Matter". http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/13/us/alabama-birmingham-police-detective-pistol-whipped/
Apparently the right to bear arms only applies to all races accept blacks. If a black guy is seen with a gun, he is immediately seen as a threat. If a white guy did the same thing, the cop would do nothing.
UtherPenguin, You are the pacifist racist here. Let's get that straight. Where is your proof I am wrong? I have more videos and more images of black on white racism. I have explained more than enough of my view on this entire issue. The more people like you ignore black racist movements and don't denounce them the more racism will grow.
What I don't get is that you say black people are impoverished, yet they're also privileged. George Orwell would call that "doublethink;" having two contradictory ideas in your head and accepting them both as true.
The ironic part about this is many of the users on this site are ignoring this poll intentionally. Not because they care, but because they don't care one bit. They think just ignoring topics like this will make things better, but ignorance will only make things worse. To ignore something is to prolong something. Therefore, we only prolong the ongoing culture wars going on at this very moment because we don't address the situation at hand. On the same note, too many people in this country are too worried about themselves and not others. If it betters them great, if not, forget about it. If someone is lying on the side of the road dead and unconscious, "sucks for them." Though, let this happen to one of your family members or someone you care about and you might understand better. Then again, maybe not.
It's okay for black people to say the "n" word because there's not a lot of weight behind it. It's completely different if a white person does it since there's hundreds of years of racial oppression caused by white people behind it.
I don't care too much, because I transcend race. There are advantages of being black that differ from some of the advantages of being white. I do think it makes blacks look bad when whites can here their criticism of whites and respect their freedom of speech, when if you went to the hood as a white and did the same thing, you'd be killed. It shows whites as more civilized in that regard. I love that red pill philosophy channel by the way. Have been a subscriber forever
Haroush, did you really think white cops in America are simply going to mind their business if they see a black guy with a gun? Let me give some incidents. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Shooting_of_John_Crawford_III http://www.huffingtonpost.com/entry/st-louis-county-police-release-video-of-man-wounded-by-cops_55ca6b5ee4b0923c12be845a First of all, how would cops know at first glance, whether he is a law abiding citizen? I see no reason to pull the trigger. What is the point of years worth of training, if these cops aren't capable of handling the situation without pulling the trigger. Its ridiculous, and it needs to stop.
That John Crawford thing was BS. WTF? I also understand leaving emotion out of an even that clearly involved the death of an innocent man in an unemotional and objective way is tough. The Crawford thing was like a perfect storm of events. The police were a little too anxious in this case and should have reassessed the situation upon arriving on the scene to figure out if the call was legitimate or not. The caller shouldn't have been exxagerating and just outright full of crap. The police shouldn't have lied and said they issued two warnings to drop the gun, when they issued no warning.
However in their defense. This was in the stream of a bunch of mass killings on the news, the 9/11 operated reported that a lone gunman was in the store and pointing his gun at children. Other people were in the store as well, so there was a legitimate fear this guy could kill some innocent people. I also don't like the fact that the grand jury didn't let this thing go to trial. They should've let this thing go to trial, so all the tough questions the public has can be answered in a courtroom. The officers wouldn't have been convicted, but it would be nice to have a more thorough public record of the event and the ability to discuss how to prevent similar situations in the future.
This tragic event wasn't race related though, obviously. It's actually kind of racist to assume that everytime a black man is shot by the police whether rightly or not, that it's race related.
"It's actually kind of racist to assume that everytime a black man is shot by the police whether rightly or not, that it's race related." I'm not saying it happens all the time, I'm saying it happens a lot more often that it would with other races.
