Funny you should say this rk9152. It seems that the poster of this topic doesn't share in your "seeing people as people". He must see Blacks as Blacks, as per the title.  So was it racist of him to title this as Blacks vs. Police ?  Now ...... who are the "racists"?


@ChasKy53, that would be Walter Williams that named this article.  It would not be right for me to rename HIS article.  Would you agree?

 

What are your thoughts on the article itself?  

 

That is what this thread is about.  I thought  "his thoughts"  were very clear and well researched.

 

 


Clear, well researched, and thoroughly bogus right wing lies.

 

Walter Williams has been a shameless right wing shill for many decades.

 

If he gets money for that - would that move him to the ranks of "paid political prostitutes"?

jrbush won reelection by coming out in favor of The Flag, The Pledge of Allegiance and American Troops.

 

It's stupid because his entire term of office was a disgrace to the Flag, the Pledge and sent 5000 brave American troops to their graves, maimed 50,000 and sent over a million to a life dealing with PTSD. Oh yeah, then his economic policies and deregulation drove 8 MILLION American families from their homes and started the second greatest economic disaster the World has ever seen.

 

But his lofo supporters do not WANT to hear about difficult issues, like the terrible cost of continued racism, the concentration of wealth at the very top or the impact of alloowing our infrastructure to deterioriate and be privatized to avoid raising taxes on the rich.

 

Nope, neoRepublican voters want EASY - things like being able to hate highly successful black athelets who object to police killing unarmed blacks. But even THAT'S too hard for them to wrap their minds around, so the GOPerLords reduce it to DISRESPECT FOR FLAG AND VETS! It's total BS, but it's SIMPLE, so the Republican base swallows it whole and NEVER has to deal with the real reason for the kneeling.

Well, I guess it could have been military jets like Trump's cabinet use. 


It was not the Veep who made the football field the venue for this sort of attention getting. If those narcissistic players really cared they'd be in the communities helping kids to make the right decisions that could keep them out of trouble with the police.

 

But then, that might interfere with the "it's all the cop's fault" divisiveness of the radical left.


acidental kudo. They do contribute to their communitys, encouraged by the league. Google NFL players that create foundtions and community organizations

So it begins.

It didn't affect you BECAUSE you were smart enough to score higher.  What about the guy/gal who wasn't as smart as you and got turned down for a promotion, job, or raise just because they were white? It's not fair and should end NOW.


It not because they are "white", it's because they couldn't score high enough. Could you?


Yes, could you??????????????????????????? Affirmative action (for the leftists) is when jobs, promotions, raises, or slots for universities are given to underachievers for being non white.

 

It's discrimination against whites for the leftists who are just learning this!


The ones who are so mad about it are those who couldn't score well on the tests, or perhaps their offspring couldn't.  I never had a problem with scoring well and neither did my son.  How about you?

Again I will quote Walter Williams fro the original post;

 

" For a race of people, these crime statistics are by no means flattering, but if something good is to be done about it, we cannot fall prey to the blame games that black politicians, black NFL players, civil rights leaders and white liberals want to play. If their vision is accepted, we can expect little improvement of the status quo."

   And here again, we have the "republicans" / White Nationalists continuing to push for a larger and louder division of the US, this time by RACE....    Then they will deny that they are racists and don't support White Nationalist ideology.    

 

   IMO, this is a bait / switch article looking to downplay the temerity of some Black Men that do have a public presence viewed by millions to make a public statement.      Isn't that really a cover - the statement being:   Black People Need To Know Their Place.    ( and yes, there have always been a minority of black people who have partnered in selling that statement).  

 

     What next:   do these same "folks" want everyone to wear a badge, identifiying them, so that they can be targeted by some intent on further division of people in the US.   

 

      If one really wanted to make an issue disappear, they wouldn't continue to write and blog about it to keep in the headlines, would they?     That implies that they want to continually feed their own followers divisive infomation, all the better to sell "  white nationalism" propaganda.
