As I said, "different worlds".
But we do have fake progressives too, as well as fake conservatives. NIMBY is a universal thing apparently.

NYC is indeed quite different than Round Rock, Texas. It's always been an American experiment in rapid urbanity and how that urbanity fits into the 'modern' times. I still often find the issues we deal with end up being issues the rest of America deals with 10 years later, as do the successes and the like.

I'll start with a few examples for ****s and giggles.


-"Progressive" but live in all white neighborhoods.

-"Progressive" but threaten WW3 if their schools are slated for rezoning/ integration.

-"Progressive" but most of their friends are white but hey, they have a black/Hispanic friend who just so happens to serve them coffee every morning.
You forgot "Progressive" but send their children to Packer/Dalton/Friends/Saint Ann's/Trinity which ensure than there will be a ruling class for many, many generations to come.

If the person looks like a wanted suspect in a murder or violent crime case.

If the person is behaving suspiciously.

The person's body language.

There are all sorts of reasons an officer might suspect someone of carrying a weapon that has nothing to do with race or ethnicity.

I don't think anyone here is arguing that the police can't search people with probable cause, but systematically searching black people going about their business is wrong.

The NYPD did not search Black people systematically. They systematically searched people in high crime neighborhoods, and the people in these neighborhoods just happened to be Black.

Me too. But it doesn't happen as often for obvious reasons.
