That white people comment was from someone else, which he quoted. That's modern journalistic integrity for you.

Also, there are protestors at every rally. I haven't found anything that showed either side as the people who were throwing the first punches at Chicago (from the clips that I've seen, most of the "chaos" looked like police arresting protestors). Why does it only seem to escalate to violence for Trump?

He actually said "I would say, and think it's similar to what the secretary would say..." then went on about how white people don't know these struggles. So maybe not poor journalism.



If ya didn't believe.

Fair enough. That one point is on weak ground but I agree with the take on institutional racism, etc.

They are an anti-racism organization fighting for rights for people who been continuously treated like second-class citizens in this country for ages. Good grief, you sound like you've been getting your American news from Rush Limbaugh.

I wouldn't disagree. I've read studies that indicate you are less likely to get a job if the application sent in has a foreign sounding name. Things like that can't really be changed just because you have a more sympathetic president, but they are real issues.

The problem is, Bernie is perhaps the type of president who would encourage already existing affirmative action. And I am totally against that on every level.

In regards to police brutality, I think it's harder to really judge. There's obviously a few ******* cops who kill people for various reasons in unnecessary circumstances. But it does make sense that black people would be disproportionately effected by police violence, because they are disproportionately criminal. The people committing the crimes, obviously, not black people as a race.

Most of the people I follow (on various mediums) who discuss and are critical of BLM are liberal. There's a lot to be critical about.

On every level? Wow. Also, it's possible for self proclaimed liberal people to have conservative beliefs.

Sanders worst moment is a million times better than Trump's best moment.
