I'm being 100% serious, it doesn't matter.

You criticize someone for their politics these days and the first thing that they swing back with if the races\genders don't match up is that you're racist or sexist etc.

If a white lady complains about a loud party and calls the police....if the party turns out to be black....then you might see an article on CNN talking about "racist white lady".

It's sad. It's illogical. It's our current environment.

They were attacked for the color of their skin. In US history, non-whites have traditionally been considered foreign and not American. Hence, the dictate to "go back to where you came from." This, despite the fact that 3 of 4 were born in the US and all are US citizens. See, it doesn't matter--they don't belong here according to the racist. Further, look at the birther movement perpetuated by Trump. Again, to the perpetrators and supporters of this "movement," there is no way a Black man could be POTUS. IOW, Obama is not legitimate to be president and he was considered a foreigner.

Funny how you think a group of teens represent the left.

You guys have Dylan Roof though -- you win - -he actually killed 9 people.

Or that guy at the garlic festival - -he leans right.

You win.

You guys are the best.

Can you provide some examples? Thanks.

Exactly. Right wing extremism is the problem in this country. I have to go to work so cannot review this report linked but I'm sure it is very enlightening. https://www.adl.org/media/12480/download

I don't assume any side is better or worse.

There are awful people on both sides.

Condemn whoever commits the act....and don't try to pretend one side is worse than the other.

What about left wing extremism?

You can't talk about one without talking about the other or you lose all credibility.

why did you leave off the 'then come back' part of trump's tweet? if they 'don't belong here,' why on earth would he ask them to return?

doesn't fit your little diatribe very well, does it?
