Was not planning on voting for him. But the lefts response to Tara Reade has been beyond disgusting.

I know that was not directed at me.

citation needed. thou doth project too much.

my objective opinion on joe biden is that he's probably the worst candidate that could have come out of that primary field. but he's nowhere near the level of fucking dumpster-fire as donald trump.

Apparently this was making rounds a few months ago but I only heard about it (on Rubin) today. She’s from my home state, NH, and hits the nail on the head.

Democrats have gone too far in recent years with (overwhelmingly, if not always) baseless hate and fear-mongering and they’re in serious trouble for years to come.

Seems very on brand that Kemp reopens Georgia, but cancels an election for state Supreme Court. Since there is no election he gets to appoint the new justice. Anyway, back to Democrats being the root of all evil.

On brand is one way to put it, he also oversaw his own election as Secretary of State, wonder who was going to win that one

Are you sure youíre independent? Itís literally never sounded like it, not once. You seem to apologize for them quite a bit.

But outside of that, I actually agree that’s garbage. Any time politicians try to manipulate an election it’s garbage, whether it’s this or trying to push for mail-in ballots because you think it will benefit you.

Iíve never hidden the fact that I am a registered Democrat. My point has always been that being a democrat doesnít make me a wacky SJW. By and large democratic candidates speak to my issues. Doesnít mean I agree with everything every democrat everywhere has ever said. Iím not pretending to be independent when I clearly lean left.

I just think itís weird that other people who claim to be independent give a free pass/downplay a lot of horseshit by a certain political party while demonizing Democrats for almost everything. Doesnít seem all that independent. If that is me apologizing for Democrats then ok. Iím not trying to start some 3 month long argument here either. Are Democrats perfect? Nope, not all all. There are plenty of things I find problematic about the Democratic Party. Was my last sentence in the previous post probably unnecessary? Yeah, but it irked me that day is all.

The left went nuts about kids on the beach in Florida. Went nuts about protests in Michigan. Thousands protesting in Minneapolis...crickets. They want to run your life unless youíre in one of their special groups...then you can do whatever

Ahh, people are going nuts?

But, I mean, it’s pretty simple. In your first two examples people whine about it online and nothing actually happens. On the other hand, those people get beaten, murderer, and arrested. It really is a shame this country is still so racist.

Is it though? Do you even know an actual racist in real life? It's definitely the mainstream narrative, but that's kind of like saying America has a rape culture when in fact we all collectively despise rape and it's prosecuted aggressively. Not sure the country has ever been this hyper racialized before, and the media isn't helping. Politicians going inside people's minds implying intent, assuring us that skin color is paramount. It's all gross to me, and none of it is helping race relations.

Yes, not an active Klan member or anything, but yes. Unless your definition of racist is someone who is openly using slurs, etc.

For example, I’d say telling a student who gets in trouble in school that they are a disgrace to their race and that they should be one of the good ones is pretty racist.

Racism isn't entirely defined by attacking black people or saying the n-word. Racism and prejudice can be subtle, internal, systematic, etc. Just because we've made strides, doesn't mean society isn't still racist or homophobic or sexist, etc. This police brutality should be a perfect reminder for you that racism is still a huge issue, yet it's making you question if racism is really still prevalent. I don't get it.

And to answer your question: I know a couple older people I'd define as racist, and about 50 people I'd say are guilty of certain racist beliefs, comments and acts, even if they don't entirely realize it.

Also, I’m pretty sure the country has been hyper racialized before...slavery, Jim Crow, segregation...

I’m not saying everyone is racist, but I don’t think that is what jack was saying either.

By "hyper racialized" I mean every human interaction being interpreted with some sort of race angle to it, not that racism itself wasn't obviously worse in the past. I think it has people on edge and walking on egg shells, even having this conversation right now makes me uncomfortable.

To the "subtle, implicit" racism stuff - that's all very tenuous. There's prejudices we all have as animals who stick to our tribes and are cautious of out groups, so we all need to overcome that, across all races. And studies have shown implicit association tests used to "root out" hidden bias are completely worthless because we all do it.

Also, I find the whole race debate to be much more about culture and less about race. Take that 60 year old white suburban boomer racist you're thinking of in your mind, do you really think he's not inviting his black next door neighbor, of similar economic standing and common interests/hobbies, over for the backyard BBQ?

We do not live in a racist country. Are there very few racist people? Yes. But a few incidents out of 330 million don’t define the entirety of the culture within that place.

Same with “rape culture.” There is no culture of rape in the United States. Rape happens, just like it does in literally every other place on planet earth, but it’s severely punishable under American law. Do some people get away with it? Yup. But that’s just because life and government itself is inherently imperfect, there is no utopia, and some people also get away with murder.

Back to the racist thing - more white people are killed by cops in America every year than black people. I hate that I even have to say that, but someone needs to point out the obvious. Again, we’re not racist, we just have 330 million people and with so many fucking people there will be very small pockets of bigotry or excessive force or racism. That doesn’t mean we’re defined in our entirety by that.

I literally don’t know one person I’d call racist. Not one.
