No, his posts do not revolve around that. You're just being overly sensitive.

I'm happy that Devitron has returned to the forum. His posts are well written and intelligent, and he knows how to counterbalance all the racist remarks.

For some reason this forum has been overtaken lately by bigots, and it makes Milwaukee look absolutely terrible. Devitron is a breath of fresh air.

It's too bad what happened to your sister, but remember, there are people in this world that are so ideologically driven that they will throw anyone under any bus. They will discredit/dismiss any experience of others that doesn't reinforce their own ideologically driven worldview.

Don't get upset over them as they are who they are.

"I learned long ago never to wrestle with a pig. You get dirty and besides, the pig likes it".

Save your real world experiences and values for those that truly accept them and use them to make people aware and for change for the better.

You're welcome.
What I try to keep in mind is, while one can never attempt to penetrate the noggin of an ideologue, one should always remember that other people are watching, reading. Thus, my comment about not 'trying to teach a pig to dance as you'll get dirty, both will get mad, and the pig enjoys it'. There are a few different variations of it, but it all comes from the 'casting pearls before swine'.

What that academic said about chris rock regretting his doing that bit about 'blacks and the dreaded, prohibited n word' was that, in 'the black community' there's an accepted understanding about not airing their dirty laundry in front of whites. Thus, if indeed chris did have remorse, it was for being 'black honest in front of black folks in a situation where white people witnessed it.'

Academics probably aren't aware of this agreed upon rule in the black community because academia is predominantly the affluent white community.

Hey, mebbe we are also edjomakating 5000 in real black people and the black community?

I have no problem with D5000 challenging Hotbug. Hotbug should be challenged. He or she insults, degrades, assumes, etc...... People should be called on this. I don't see D5000 as a troll. We will agree to disagree on this one.

The defense rests
I've met quite a few dumb lawyers, but I don't think even the bottom 20% of that sector would put that out there w/o laughing.

Liberal/progressives are so amusing, how adamant they are in how 'right' they are, yet at the same time, demonstrating how ignorant they are about everything outside of their tiny, tightly controlled sphere.

There are about 3 different 'dialects' in what I wrote and none of them are exclusive to any race. But I guess if one isn't exposed to a lot of different people from a lot of different places, one doesn't know things like that. (but after 8 pages, I'm glad you finally found your 'proof' lmao)

"Fried chicken" is another one. Gonna jump on your proclamations on how that is racist too? lol! You've clearly never been down to The South. Relatedly, I prefer fried catfish--that's another staple of Southern Cooking....thus why it's on most menus at black restaurants.....oh, and white southern ones......

I am glad that I am able to expose you to other things.
I heard a black UW professor state how there's no such thing as 'soul food' when it's basically the same thing white southerners eat. You should have heard the gasps(!) from the black women students!!! They called him a "sellout" and all sorts of silly, ignorant things.

Milwaukee probably has some black restaurants. I'd think so.
Don't like peach cobbler tho.......

It's the standard cookie cutter, internet fare mostly along the liberal/progressive side of things.

Make accusations/proclamations.
Continue to do so, hoping something will 'stick'.
When that fails, start to demand the other be banned.
When that doesn't work, proclaim they have nothing of value to add.
When others see that's not so, then proclaim that they are putting Mr/Ms X on their ignore list due to being a 'troll' and suggest others also do so.

Like I said, it's standard internet kid stuff.
I know this as I've been using the internet since algore invented it, so I don't expect anything less. However, I am aware that others are reading.

This is also why such topics like this often come up. They aren't truly for discussion, rather, they are for trying to attack/discredit milwaukee/etc.

Milwaukee is fine. Like another poster here said, if people don't like somewhere, they SHOULD VOTE WITH THEIR FEET and move. This is why a lot of people from chicago are moving to WI. And a lot of cheeseheads are moving outside of milwaukee proper, and madison, and dane county, etc.

I can tell ya a story about a 'journalist' sent there to cover it, but that has nothing to do with the topic.

"Is there any correlation between demographic and crime in the various areas of milwaukee? And if so, why?" would be.

My mistake. I'll pass on the story.

How to fix Milwaukee's segregation problems....."you"(Government) cannot fix Milwaukee's segregation "problems". Only "we"(the people) can, anything else is social engineering and does not work.
