Re: Zimmerman Trial

My position put simply is yes it is prejudiced, but racism is more than just prejudice. Racism is prejudice + power. And white people have all the power. So, every comment that's racially insensitive is prejudiced, but not necessarily racist. follow? I'll admit I was inconsistent right there but I ...

Re: Zimmerman Trial

It certainly does contradict what you say. You directly attributed the fact that police spend an inordinate amount of time in black neighborhoods as a function of racism. You butt up against first hand experience on a subject like this and your M.O. is to play the "I'd answer if only... X.&quo...

Re: Zimmerman Trial

I don't deny anything you say, it doesn't even contradict what I'm talking about, and I would go on (police force prescence is a lot like occupation, the area is more dangerous no doubt, you're more likely to stop wrong-doers, and the people don't like you but the politicians need you there) but yo...

Re: Zimmerman Trial

Well I'm aware that the reason they do these things isn't "simply because they are black" but rather its problematic for a variety of reasons and oh look you typed something more than 2 sentences here's a cookie It isn't problematic. Maybe it is in your mind, but you overlook the basic fa...

That's great, but your arguments are still laden with false assumptions, uninformed opinion and a criminal misreading of their texts.

Re: Zimmerman Trial

Re: Zimmerman Trial

I don't disagree with that, you're putting words in my mouth. the "decadence" of black culture (bleh, I feel that's racist but that's another discussion for another time maybe) is largely due to poverty, which can be tied to discrimination historically and currently. So again, what is the...

Re: Zimmerman Trial

When it comes to things like drug arrests, the police don't come to white neighborhoods, when studies have shown white people are more likely to use drugs. New York's stop and frisk law is another instance of racism as people of color are stopped 8 times more likely than white people. The thing abo...

Re: Zimmerman Trial

Poverty can accelerate the problems listed. Poverty is a problem of the black community which can be attributed to lack of capital, lack of employment, and other things that the community isn't directly responsible for. That's a problem in the white community too. You make it sound like every white...
