“Race is there, and it is a constant,” Stewart said. “You’re tired of hearing about it? Imagine how #ing exhausting it is living it.”

Stewart also debunked Fox’s argument that the black community and media at large are ignoring black-on-black violence in cities like Chicago by showing footage of MSNBC host Al Sharpton at a community event there this past July. Besides that, Stewart said, African-American leaders met in Chicago this past November, one of three discussions about the violence there in the past 13 months.

“You see, you being ignorant of those attempts doesn’t mean the issue itself is being ignored,” Stewart said scoldingly. “In the same way that when it snows where you live doesn’t mean the world isn’t getting hotter.”


Raw Story

Exactly...

Meanwhile, a white guy is told a restaurant isn't a safe place for whites and then is beaten by a mob of 20 black people. But that is not a hate crime, nor is it racist.

But a white cop shooting a black person who was assaulting him is racist. And you wonder why people are sick of this crap??

I can't believe anyone listens to Stewart, he's as bad as any news pundit.

I'm sure it doesn't fit your world view. Neither will this; Authoritarian racism is 10x worse and not equivalent to the oppressed hating their oppressors. Prisoners always hate the guards. It has nothing to do with race. Reverse racism is a ruse made up by Faux News. Guards don't give a damn that the prisoners hate them because the are the subordinates. get it?

Exactly what? That his bias is in lockstep with your bias? Of course black leaders meet to talk about the black community. But if you think Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson don't politicize particular situations for their own benefit, you're insane.

A racially motivated group of people rioted in the streets of Ferguson without having any facts or wanting to know any facts before they made themselves look like fools and turn this into a racial case.

That is the only reason why this is a news story.

Exactly because it's an arrow to the heart of the matter. Why should you be so trained to automatically look away from a situation because Sharpton and Jackson show up?

People of all colors protested in Ferguson.

...what??

Blacks are much quicker to show their racism than any other ethnicity in the US....I'll assume you've never heard them call someone whiteboy, cracker, honky...?

All of them? You sure? Riot police firing tear gas doesn't always mean they're responding to a riot. Or did you not pay any attention to the sign the protester you approve of was holding?

Black cop kills Hispanic

Where's the riot?

Why aren't Hispanics up in arms about the injustice.

Oh, correction White-Hispanic

Why aren't Hispanics up in arms over the media trying to divide the Hispanics into white/brown/black?

Where are the riots?

Where is the justice?


I went to find a link to this story and found lots of them, but none that would not be held in contempt by many of you, not for the story itself, that is now undeniable, but for the place I got the story from. Oh well, tough, it happened.

www.wnd.com...


Turns out this story is nearly identical to what happened in Ferguson, except the race factor was opposite.
The guy was a thug, yes a thug, a white thug, or is it hispanic thug?

This whole race baiting PC thing is out of hand, (read The Giver to see where it will lead, or see the Movie if you can't read a very short award winning book) It shows a completely color blind society where being polite and not hurting anyone's feelings are prime societal values.

It's not that white people don't regularly riot, we just do it over things like sporting events:




Maybe that's because the average white person doesn't fear disproportionately bad treatment by law enforcement and so you know, sporting events are what we riot about. Maybe black folks should learn a more militarized response:



That seems to be laudable by the right-wingers.

Maybe modern Hispanics have a guilt complex.

After all, several generations of Hispanics from Spain and Portugal killed millions of Native Americans a few hundred years ago.

Hmmm.

LOL

You have a great sense of humor.

It is only the black race who can be pure in outrage,
after all they have never and never will enslave others,
right?

You have got to be kidding me.


Did you study under Sharpton, Jackson, Farrakhan or all 3?

You don't get my point, these riots were about cops in general, not race

In this case a BLACK cop killed a "White" Hispanic, and there is the difference

To be fair and just in today's world, there needs to be outrage, riots, looting etc for days on end
to protest that a Black man killed a White Hispanic,
the cop part is secondary to the entire story
