The Democrats run their whole platform on keeping blacks thinking the white man is their problem so they can stay in power.
If those people aren't victims...no one is.
As an outsider, I would only say this is not possible for a society to function this way. A group of people think they're being treated underprivileged unfairly and then another group of people think they're being unfairly treated to compensate those who was underprivileged is exactly how you start Balkanization and the break up of Yugoslavia. And when all the people are living together instead of segregated territory the result would be Bosnia. Is it anyone's desired result of all these activities and would this be helpful to any group of people?
That's because your perspective lacks all historical context that serves as the very factual basis of 'wrongful, unjust, discriminatory claims/feelings.
Your view is great for 'Once Upon Time Tales...', not real life application 'in real life'.
I can't support a movement that has brought about so much violence in US cities. And many of the homes and businesses destroyed were owned by African Americans. How is that bringing justice or change? They're just hurting Black communities even more.
You make that statement as if this is the first racial-initiating event and that like 100 years ago no one has said what you are saying now.
What you are stating is only confirming the fact that human history is repeating itself. And your unlearned attitude assures it will continue.
Human History always repeats itself when the ineducable fail to learn. Period.
Having said that, I fully support changes in policing. The federal government should be the one investigating all instances of abuse or weapons discharge. Police departments cannot be trusted to investigate themselves. Any officer involved should be immediately suspended without pay. If any of us regular folks were to be arrested, we would almost assuredly lose our jobs. Body cameras should be mandatory. If cops have nothing to hide, why would they be opposed to them? And cops should have to purchase liability insurance. The taxpayers should foot the bill for their mistakes. .
Agreed but I think you meant "The taxpayers should NOT foot the bill for their mistakes."
I also don't agree with having hate crimes. You aren't better than me or anyone else just because of your race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. And the same goes for cops. Injuring/killing a police officer should not bring increased charges. All crime should be treated equally.
Totally disagree because all crimes are not committed equally..from the 'pain inflected' perspective it may seem that way but certainly is not.
I can't help but think of the recent heinous crimes of killing trans people.
Why isn't that 'just another crime'?
It's not because in the skulls of male (and female) jurors, judges, prosecutors, et al...that victim is just not the same as the innocent blonde jogger attacked at the park.
ONLY when the minds of those who sit in judgement are balanced at a point that they cease to think in such limited and primitive circles and ascribe the same life-value to every victim, women, hookers, children, bad children, everyone except other killers...then every crime can truly be treated equally.
Until til the flood the courts with these silly ignorant crimes of hate - they too have a long and storied history.
Isn't justice supposed to be blind? If someone murders me then I should receive the same justice as a cop that was murdered. No one person is better than the next and until we recognize that then we will never have equality. And no more fancy traffic-stopping funerals for cops paid for by the taxpayers. If their family wants that kind of lavish ceremony then they can pay for it.
Yes the concept 'justice is supposed to be blind' is just that...a concept.
Just like Democracy, a word meaning nothing in the galaxy or the universe..but on the human scale of relevance it's the difference between living in Pyongyang and Boston.
Night and day.
Like all human concepts, they are conceived and all operated - by humans. Good and Bad.
The air let out of the concept is always from the bad components or flawed/bad humans.
That is how you narrow down to the source of the problem.
You, me all on this board are witnessing in Live-Time, the numero uno American, the president...
pissing on his oath to the US Constitution.
flaunting laws of self-enrichment in office (Amoulments)
violating political laws meant to keep politicians honest - the Hatch Act
flipping off the Congress and their lawful subpoenas.
lying straight to our faces
disrespecting fallen veterans (you respect cops more than war veterans?
..he's the leader.
How many Americans do you know believe are taking cues from him, elevating this Ignorant Fool to god like status.
Education....it can only help you. It may hurt at first...but stick with it!
