Just a positive rating is not enough.

If I may explain something, even though I am white, some personal facts that may shed a little light on exactly what racism is:

My spouse is black, and grew up in a part of town the white people would consider questionable. Over the 25+ years, we have had more openly bitter comments from blacks than whites, this part is true. Example: at a department store getting family photos made and a black guy walks by my husband and says "Uncle Tom"
-HOWEVER-
And here is the important part: the racism from whites has been more of a secretive, passive-aggressive type. For example, I am loved and fawned over at a new job....until I put family photos out on my desk. Suddenly my work product has issues, or I am no longer invited to lunches.

And the most important thing related to the racism issue should be very very transparent to the money-worshipping, big-business-worshipping right: black people are simply paid less. Period. Same work product, same education, same experience, and paid less than white counterparts.

You can also replace "black" with "female"


I want to make a quick point about the above, though, since you can see I am from DFW. This area is one of the LEAST racist areas I have ever been in. Other than NYC, DFW is the most diverse and accepting places in the US, and I don't want anyone who reads this to think these things happened just because I am in Texas- not the case at all.

According to the shooter he was standing his ground. Who can you believe in these situations? The black person or the white. No one would question a white person standing his ground against a black person would they?

But only white people can be racist, right?

More POC privilege.
Trump has mainstreamed racial division and is bringing out the worst in everyone. He needs to go.

I only love the civilized ones actually and the ones that haven't tried to victimize me. Haven't I made that clear to you in my other posts on this topic?

No one would question a white person for standing his or her ground? Let's see:

Some is. Some white people are being beaten up just because.

At 18 years, he's an adult. Felony assault with a deadly weapon charges for this one...and three hots and a cot, courtesy of the taxpayers. Probably the plan all along for this useless thug.
