Yep, the Alt-Right would explain it the same way, but nothing could be further from the truth.  Why don't you quote those who you say said "What do we want, dead cops"? Perhaps many have decided racism is something to be concerned with because they visit chat sites such as this one and are exposed to the Alt-Right the way posters are here? Perhaps it's because they see the KKK having so much support? Perhaps it's because they simply have their eyes open and can see reality.


You seem well versed on the thinking of the alt-right. You obviously did not read MIseker's "alt-right manual" - so how do you know this stuff? Surely not from seeing words you disagree with and saying, "That must be alt-right" - although, it sure does seem that way..


Obviously you havent done your independant research on your brethren. Racism is in a way like alcoholism..first you have to recognize you have a problem.

 

So it begins.

Whenever I travel, cabs always stop to pick me up immediately yet they drive right past black people.

 

The BIGGEST example of racism, though, is our president. He can talk about "moving on [women] like a b***h" and "grabbing her p***y" and it's just shrugged off. He can have kids by three different women and it's just shrugged off. Can you imagine if Obama had talked about grabbing women and/or had kids by different women--we'd never have heard the end of it on talk radio.


I hate to nit-pick but "women" is not a race.


Ahhhh, another straw argument by.....well.....you-know-who.  The poster didn't say "women" was a race.  Some think it's important to TROLL.....

Poll: Americans are twice as likely to say racism is a “big problem” compared to 6 years ago

 

 

 

 
 
 

The Only Graph and the Only Polls That count are the ones that show what always happens after the people who answered the Poll Questions One Way - then Go To The Polls and Vote Totally the Opposite Way

POLITIFACT

 

The meme said that Congress has 11 percent approval ratings, yet 96.4 percent of incumbent lawmakers were re-elected.

 

We found small differences in the actual percentages -- Congress had roughly a 14 percent approval rate, and the incumbent re-election rate may be as low as 95 percent -- but the point of the meme is solid. Voters hold Congress in low regard, yet they re-elect almost everyone. So we rate the claim True.

People who claim color blindness are just refusing to recognize a problem. Same with the gun issue. It comes from a one time popular book called the ONE MINUTE MANAGER. its says, no solution, no problem. My plant manager said we had to read it and go by it. I told my boss to put it where the sun dont shine..90% of all our jobs was trouble shooting. Its giving up, plain and simple.
So it begins.

Excellent points, JS.  As you can see, some are still struggling with their own personal demons.

 

trump is dividing the country more and more and you've nailed the double standards of many of the white Conservatives.
