rarely. racist is one of the first labels liberals try to put on anyone with a different opinion than their own.

They are ungrateful. Trump wants to give them a chance at the American Dream. The liberal democrats want to keep them as slaves forever beholden to the welfare masters.

He declined the offer, the group got angry because he wouldn't drink with them and they started throwing bottles at him. He raised his arms to block the bottles and apparently the group claims that he hit one of them.
He has been in prison there ever since. The lawyer said that the family needs to pay $100k in US funds for him to be released.

"Faced with no American-style bail available, no discovery process about the evidence against him and a confusing array of laws that bear little resemblance to the United States, he’s spent the past 14 months in a Chinese jail."

The mother has just come out with a plea to Trump for help.
I believe in the right of each nation to determine judicial issues solely on its own.

Scary, huh? Did you think you landed on another planet or entered the Twilight Zone??

I recall back when I first began reading political remarks online, becoming aware of the existence of...and I have always lived in the U.S., just not around the segment of society who are like that, so I only see it online. And they have no clue, living in their little, limited-minded world. Before this election and the rallies, we had not experienced such negativity being stirred up, bringing that element out of the woodwork. It is so unbelievable and have seen so much trouble erupt since, that most are just focusing on it ending.

100% of the time.

It was NONE of our business. US citizens who are thieves should be treated like any other thieves.

This sets a bad precedent.
What sources would those be and by whom?
Nobody meddled in the case, which makes Trump a liar as he claims he got them released.
As stated by Hong Kong Law Profesor Fu Hualing, releasing these students was not out of the norm. Trump had nothing to do with it.
If tRump is so great, how come he didn't persuade the Chinese Government to release some political prisoners, such as Liu Xia, an artist, photographer and the widow of Nobel Peace Prize winner Liu Xiaobo. She is being held in unofficial custody away from family and friends, punished simply for being the wife of Liu.

I am yet to read a response with merits to my previous post:

"Please mention names of white sports players that trump attacked during last week/months.

I am listening.

On one hand, he attacked: Seth Curry, Marshawn Lynch, Kaepernick, LaVar, his son who already thanked him for help. Then:

When the NFL star Tom Brady, a white player, skipped his championship team’s White House visit, the president was silent. When Warriors star Stephen Curry, a black man, announced his intention to do the same, the president called him out on Twitter and rescinded the team’s invitation.Trump’s instant criticism of Curry and black NFL players stands in stark contrast to his hesitation to condemn white supremacists and neo-Nazis.

Steve Kerr was much more adamant in attacking Trump and saying he won't visit. Gregg Popovich called Trump a soulless coward.

Number of tweets from Trump on them or white players kneeling/supporting the protest? You guessed it - ZERO"

Even the lowliest black facing the harshest racism still has a higher quality of life than any black on the African continent and is of course leaps and bounds ahead of an 18th century African.

Not defending the "redneck" behavior, just trying to cut the PC BS and give a straight truth reply.

I actually feel sorry for you.
If you're going to call a thread "stupid" you should at least offer some substance. For my part, I'll break the history down, once you research each of these then feel free to return with an educated reply.
1. what was the state of western africa at the time whites first landed there? was it less advanced then europe? How much less advanced?
2. what STEM advancements have been made in Africa, ever? Any nation-building?
3. what is the current state of africa? are its countries some of the most corrupt? lowly educated?
4. what is average IQ of US blacks? what is average IQ of africans?
5. what STEM advancements have been made by blacks in the US?

if you answer each of these questions honestly, then you will see my point above. Again, but for slavery, blacks would have a much lower quality of life than they have today.

Liberal educators indoctrinating enslaved and impressionable students is to blame for our problems? Man, I was way out in left field!!! Just to think, for alllll of these years years I have been blaming Jim Crow and racists! I always thought the liberals were out there fighting social injustice and diviseness...and were responsible for virtually all of the major victories on that fronts! Now, alas, I know we were the problem. America would be an utopia without us. And here is what is really distressing....to tell you how misguided I was I never even knew how I felt and thought!!!! I never knew that as a liberal I and my my liberal friends hated America! I was actually under the delusion that I loved it! And so were my liberal friends! I thought many of my fellow liberals even fought and died for it, and crusaded here at home to make it better! This is extremely distressing! But I shouldn't dispair...there is a way out! What must be done is obvious. The only way to combat this bizarre combination of ignorance and illusion is obvious...I must love me some Infowars! And Fox and Breitbart! And ridicule anything that doesn't agree with them and call it fake news (I bet up in heaven George Orwell is wishing he had thought of that phrase!).

Not at all.

Colleges challenge students to develop critical thinking skills. If they present conservative arguments without resorting to bogus documentation they’re not likely to be gigged by professors. If they resort to alternative facts they’ll have a problem. The most liberalizing factor in college is not so much indoctrination by liberal professors as it is being exposed to other points of view, particularly from other young people.
