Going along? More like leading the pack.




You claim that our laws are racist, but you did not provide any specific examples. Regardless, according to science, there is no such thing as race.

There Is No Such Thing as Race

How can a law be racist if race does not exist? Are you arguing that blacks are genetically more prone to committing certain crimes? If that is your argument, then you are at odds with science.


Also, the majority of blacks live in urban areas, which are under local democratic control. How can you blame republicans when blacks are primarily arrested for crimes in the city? Democrats control those city governments, not republicans. The rural white voter in Imperial, MO can't be blamed when a black male is arrested in STL City by local law enforcement officers, and later sentenced by an STL County judge. How is it the fault of republicans that the criminal justice systems in metropolitan areas (largely dominated by democrats) are according to you, racist?
California republicans are NOT the same type of Republicans you will find in Missouri. They would be more like a moderate democrat at best in Missouri.

Blacks in the US are actually the most accommodated group of people in the world.

I think he means back this statement up with legitimate studies and facts. (Not just opinions or alternative facts).

Why is it okay to have American flags fly at union cemeteries but not the Confederate ones then? Then at the state historic sights remove the American Flags too and just fly the Missouri state flag then. That way make it equal to both sides then. If it's state funded, just fly the MO state flag then.
Why is it not okay to have Confederate flags fly? Because Confederates are traitors. Period.

No. The LGBT community would rank higher. Blacks are actually the most looked down on group in the USA.

Just like back in 2002 the removal of the Confederate flags at the state historic sites. They flew there for years without any issues until One Term Bob took them down.

When will this stop? Hell here in Florida there are not many traces of the old Confederacy left. All across the south and border states they're being removed.

Mayor's office exploring avenues to remove Confederate monument | KSDK.com
There has been a problem with it from some residents. However, there are many who never talked about it during the time when such monuments were erected. Namely, Blacks. Truth is, no one should honor Confederates. This is the USA, not the CSA. The CSA waged war against the USA. Confederates are traitors and bigots who wanted to continue the slavery institution. They don't deserve any honor. My belief is that every tribute to a Confederate needs to come down. Put the statues in museums and statue graveyards, but do not give them places of honor.

You may be getting at something there. They may in fact have overtaken blacks in the victimhood olympics.
