    Uhh, that is patently false.  Black Lives Matter as a movement began with the hashtag after the Zimmerman trial and protests were ongoing well before the tragedy in Charleston.

    The professor appears to have been trying to force people to use "humanizing" terminology.  The internet has many examples of the use of "females" or "males" in disparaging contexts.  It is pretty clear her note about taking further action is meant as a way to head off any attempts at students going on tirades in classes.

    No, I don't get your drift. 
    Think again about who Jefferson Davis was and what government he represented, and perhaps you will see the fault in your like of reasoning.

    I never wonder if when people say poo like this they actually think it is equivalent or if they are just trying to generate responses.  Because lol.

    I'd not object to a statue of Jefferson Davis at historical locales, but I don't see the point of a statue for him, or really any Confederate, outside of historical context.  Fwiw, had he served as the president of whichever Texas school offered him the job, I'd think that them showing his statue would be appropriate.

    It is funny how the establishment Dems are scrambling to get Biden in the race with Hillary floundering. Abandon ship!  Abandon ship!  Email iceberg dead ahead!

    I don't think he feels that way; he is arguing that these problems highlight major problems for capitalism, but that some conservatives refuse to try to confront them because they fear that government intervention into the economy in this form is communism.

    as I mentioned above there are plenty of people that take the "group inferiority" route but caveat it as the fact these people are basically being lead to bad choices by policies of political parties that apparently encourage laziness and popping out babies blah blah.  Many favor this as it also allows them to point to the successful individuals that do come out of hard places to grow up (BEN CARSON) as evidence of how the problem isn't racist/bias power structures but personal choice and the government's systems trying to help that actually do harm.

    I think you misunderstand his post.  He is presenting the three "types" of reasons people usually cite for the vastly different outcomes among different groups of people.  Your first paragraph is covered entirely by his item in #3, while your second paragraph is covered in his #2... basically an argument a lot of subtle racists make that black culture somehow favors welfare babies and broken homes.  This is often blamed on "the system", actually, and ofc dem policies.

    I suppose it depends how you define prosper. What items are you willing to cut?  We might very well be able to if we simply dissolved the department of defense and all our armed forces but uh... that seems like a bad idea. :p

    So I have this new theory that trump's campaign is actually a reality TV show that will be rebroadcast in a couple years for people to laugh at... but the real stars are the idiot voters who support him.  it'll show behind the scenes clips with Trump laughing about the insane poo he says and how he treats people and gets away with it, followed by clips of his rabid followers, mixed with endorsements from Stormfront, all part of the Clinton machine to finally get back at the vast right wing conspiracy...
