man some of yall are really defensive.

if I post a video about racism you take as like a personal offense or something. do you feel like this thread applies directly to you and that's why you're so irritable?

lol want to see "irritable"? say the words "white privilege." that's what this is about. if racism is real then privilege is real and if privilege is real then their worldview begins to crumble

well yeah that's the underlying point. one 911 call when white kids are vandalizing a car, two 911 calls when black kids are sleeping in a car.

people that reported either group for fuging up the car did the right thing. it irks though that white kids can break the law in broad daylight and people assume they're doing a school project or some poo.

then there are studies showing that people with "white sounding" names get more callbacks from potential employers

or the research i alluded to earlier re: conviction and sentencing disparities, "stop-and-frisk" disparities, and so on

okay but prove he's a racist though.


Would posting an example of him using racial stereotypes "prove" he is racist?

nope


So in essence you agree this is bullshit?

racial stereotypes are the definition of racism


I'm not arguing for or against anyone. I'm just wondering how seriously to take your posts.

i think in this instance he's just using another poster's standard for determining what's racist, separate from his own beliefs

idk though i mostly just skimmed this topic
