I also don't think you can fully appreciate what it's like to grow up in a country that enslaved your people for 400 years, and then discrimated against your people through the law for another 100 years. A country whose monuments and history books are full of positive stories about people that probably raped, murdered, flogged and at the very least subjugated and dehumanized your race and culture. I don't think you have any idea what it must feel like to be raised in those circumstances and the psychological effects it must have on your development
I fully agree.

All people who feel this way should go back to the countries their ancestors came from, where they don't have to worry about all that white supremacy.

And all those who are trying to get into this terrible racist country should turn around and go right back to where they also won't have to worry about this.

Problem solved!

Here's another thought experiment, two sides of the coin. A black guy walks into a gym full of white people. That's one side of the coin. The other side is a white guy walks into a gym full of black people.

Which one of these two people likely subjectively feels more fear in his mind, the black guy walking into the white gym or the white guy walking into the black gym? Of course, this will vary greatly with the individuals, but just on average, which one of these two people is likely to subjectively feel more fear in his mind?

Now, taking out subjective feelings and just going by statistics, which one should objectively feel more fear in his mind? In other words, statistically speaking, is there more white-on-black crime or more black-on-white crime?

I suspect both subjectively and objectively the answers are the same. And yet we are told that we should be worried about white supremacy being a huge problem in this country. In other words, the media is just stirring things up for their own purposes, which are basically to get more click revenue and to please their biggest advertisers.
We don't have to guess about this because we actually have expert testimony on exactly this issue:

“There is nothing more painful to me at this stage in my life than to walk down the street and hear footsteps... then turn around and see somebody white and feel relieved.”

― Jesse Jackson (https://www.goodreads.com/quotes/5978-t ... this-stage)
There you have it. If anyone ever dares to build a statue to Jesse Jackson, I'm sure the SJWs will need to tear it down the next time the media stirs them up, because it's obvious from his own words that he is a racial bigot and hates black people in his heart of hearts.

For anybody reading this who is less advanced in the art of communication than myself, the above words are an example of the style known as "sarcasm". The point is that just as Jesse Jackson is not a bigot, neither is a white person who feels fear when he is walking in a black neighborhood. They are both just cautious realists.

PSA: I may be forced to change my screen name on this forum. Apparently, it's racist.

City mulls removing 'chief' from job titles, saying term is offensive to Native Americans
No more 'chief' of police or fire 'chief'?

At this point basically everything is racist.

And if everything is racist, then nothing is racist!

In my rounds about town, I've noticed a lot of BLM signs in business windows. It got me wondering how many of them are sincere and how many are put there just in hopes that the sign will be a magical spell to ward off window-shattering violence?

I read a related comment on another forum where the person wondered how long it will be before we need to have say a BLM tattoo on our face in order to ward off violence to our person. This sounds like hyperbole but then you stop to think about it more and have to wonder. The socially approved tattoo position would have to be somewhere outside the ubiquitous face mask that we may be wearing for a long time.

I have an answer to that question as far as it pertains to where I live: Never.
The first time these thugs start something around here, they will be taken care of very permanently.
There's a reason the violence is in the cities.

The problem is that the SJWs may well be in full control soon. Then they will send the federal officers after recalcitrant, incorrigible deplorables like yourself Waco-style. The sweet smelling savor of roasted white flesh will go up as a sacrifice to their gods. You may well be better off getting a discreet BLM tattoo on your upper cheek or neck just as a form of insurance.

That would lead to civil war.
However, I'm too old to fight effectively. So if the Democrats get into power I'll probably leave the country.

With all due respect, you sound like all the far lefties that said they would leave if Trump was elected and, unfortunately, they are still all here. I have a hard time believing you will flee the country if the party you don't like comes to power. They had complete control from 2008-2010 and yet you're still here....

does the bee still do satire? or is it a hard news outlet now?

“The whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by an endless series of hobgoblins, most of them imaginary.”

Belief is the death of intelligence. As soon as one believes a doctrine of any sort, or assumes certitude, one stops thinking about that aspect of existence
