If people are so thirsty for approval/snowflakey that they feel the need to obey some rule on a whim, that's on them. They should actually do that. People made personal blocks on the for a reason.

But you being intolerant of controversial speech shouldn't mean entire should cancel the instance hosting someone you don't like. That's retarded. Like literally pea-brained.

Dear black parents... 

Stop telling your kids they're gonna die cuz they're black and making them cry so you can make a video to put on social media for social justice warrior points.

That's emotional abuse.

Thank you.

BTW when you feel tempted to paint as a monolith remember that they turned over an thug over to the police when they saw him breaking the concrete sidewalk to use to attack the cops.

i feel like i've said this before but i don't mind saying it again

They're both valid numbers. If you want to know about the behavior of a malfunctioning node (a police officer) you measure how he treats individuals, and at the same time it can be true that profiling leads to higher exposure and thus bears out more poor results, so you don't need to be wrong about the x2.135 number, but Casey's point isn't wrong either, the per-interaction rate is where we're going to see if it's individual officers vs policy and exposure.

Question that would exemplify the difference: does the risk for black Americans decrease as they move out into less urban areas where the level of policing is lower? That would suggest that individual officers don't have an issue.
@haxonek Hey man, I really hope you join us on the other side. You are one of the few fair-minded Gabbers that I actually enjoyed chatting with.

There are plenty of instances where you'd feel right at home. is probably the best fit IMO.

> I don't toe the political line just because Massa Democrat says so.

I'm not a Democrat, nor am I a Republican. I don't think it was a good move for most Blacks to wed a party.

> It may be odd to see a black man defending the rights of whites, but that's just because I think their lives matter as much as the lives of black people like me. We should not be treated different or special because of our skin color.

In that part, you're preaching to the choir. I have criticized the leaders of Black orgs when they don't cry out when someone in another ethnic group is persecuted or attacked by Blacks. (Gotten lots of "Oreo" and similar replies, too.)

But we don't get to "not treated differently" by pretending it isn't happening. You have to acknowledge the behavior that you want to change, because those who are behaving that way often won't change without pressure.

I apologize for having an opinion. I will not use this in college but I don't like the bold aesthetic the large header gives off but I seriously doubt that he either is a problem, I just started listening to the existence of a citizen from the outset?
