Team Red continues to complain about the MSM's agenda.

Well, since the State is the sole reason for the MSM's existence wouldn't the reasonable thing to do is call for an end to the State?

Article said "Allen wound up turning himself in to police Monday night. He allegedly confessed to shooting at the victims, but claimed they were armed and had fired at him first." Even if the victims were armed and shot first, going postal like that isn't justified!

Just for the irony, I need to note this to you...

Tell us more about how the black brain is superior such that it is immune to racism.

Is it too cynical of me to say that I think every person has some tiny bit of prejudice in them? May not be racially motivated, but maybe against poor or rich? Against fat or fit? Against intellectual or ignorant? Gay or straight?

I think everyone has *something* that- even if they try real real hard not to- throws up a little red flag, a little cringe, for them.

I admit that I do, and I have thus been put in a position to be forced to deal with a couple of them. It's my chance to learn and recoup some of my karma.

I'd put my money on a guilty verdict. But then again, I've seen very limited evidence in regards to what happened. All I know is two guys get in a physical altercation over a handicapped parking spot. The guy parking in the spot wasn't handicapped nor was the shooter. The shooter was knocked to the ground, pulled out his gun, and shot the guy as he turned his back on the shooter. The guy shot had his girlfriend or wife in the car at the time.

I think that's all in a nutshell, that I know about it. With that, I'd say he's guilty. The jury will obviously know more due to evidence presented at the trial.

Yes, I certainly do deny it. Blacks are given preferential treatment in many cases. Yet, of course, nobody seems to see or acknowledge this. It's still, and always will be, a caterwaul about how horrible "whitey" is. But, yeah, all other things equal, who do you think will get admitted to college first, the black or the white? All other things equal, who do you think gets that job first? In fact, this also applies if other factors are NOT equal. I do not buy this racism bullcrap at all. I've worked around plenty of black people all my life. They were treated no differently than anyone else. They did the same work as everyone else. They got the same wages for that work as everyone else. Each individual had his/her good points and bad points just like everyone else. They were not sent in chains to the "boiler room" and mistreated. In fact, they were sometimes even handled with kid gloves.

Although racism certainly exists in all colors and creeds, you liberal folks overblow the hell out of it. In fact you've overblown it so badly that it means nothing anymore. It's a joke, sadly, because there are legitimate cases of racism out there. But the little boy cried wolf about 1,234,687,890 too many times.

We can agree there.

But, unfortunately the way liberals have been handling "racism" lately, real racism gets thrown out with the bathwater by a population that is sick to death of hearing that word incessantly and being called a racist every time they so much as let a fart (or posit a different opinion from the liberal talking points).

My direct experience is with people in the financial and real estate industries. And it was never locked in a boiler room type stuff. Passed over for promotion, given lesser quality assignments and many examples of lower pay for the same work, that kind of pernicious unfair treatment. It also involved instances where I saw black clients treated differently.

To be able to discount, out of hand, the heartfelt and well articulated continual explanations of being treated poorly by MILLIONS of your fellow Americans or to fail the observe the disparity in the lives of such large populations of people, takes a level cynicism that rises to delusion. Although it's much better than our abhorrent past, that doesn't' mean it isn't real and ongoing whether you care to acknowledge it or not.

Hilarious seeing a comment claiming Trumps base is conservatives.

Because some of you don't care about the truth since it is a fact that your progressive big government policies are known failures so you make things up to deflect. LOL
