Yes, you are missing something. It is called "perspective." I realized you lacked it when I saw the term "White privilege" in one of your links.

so you think white privilege doesn't exist? do you deny the existence of systemic racism?

It does not exist and yes, I am denying it. America is victim of systemic classism, not racism. If you don't fit into a certain class, you're equally boned regardless of your skin tone.

Well Obama himself said racism is in the DNA and passes on.

So what are people supposed to do?

unlike the rioters after those sporting events the purpose of the protest was not to destroy but to seek answers about the injustice that blacks face at the hands of police. yet the language that the media use when describing groups of black people undermines the protesters.

thousands of blacks and whites gathered to protest peacefully with zero deaths and they are called thugs and criminals for exercising their constitutional rights

yet a biker gang can have a shootout that kills 9 and the rhetoric totally changes. is that fair ? its funny how every time americas deep seated race issues are brought up on ats the thread is labeled a troll thread.


Lets see.... 100 bikers were arrested each held at over 1 million for a bond. Check your facts. If that would have happened to 100 looters it would have just been worse.. People need to just grow up. This is just more stupid race baiting. Just so it's known, if you steal,rob or mess with me or my property or business my large caliber bullets really don't care what color you are.

The purpose wasnt to destroy? sure looked like all those looted buildings, burnt police cars and burned down buildings were all bout destroying.......

you dont destroy things to find answers, you destroy things because youre a violent thug, or an opportunist.....

There were 9 bikers killed and over 100 arrested and held on bail that is sky high..........how many were killed in the riots in baltimore or ferguson or arrested and still being held in custody??

Do you even actually read about anything youve talked about or do you just watch Youtube videos?

because its really really clear you arent getting any facts, and when faced with them on this thread, you either totally ignore them or reply with something so off the wall it doesnt even have a connection.........

Again I maintain this thread is to instigate, and is not based on actually having a discussion at all

Maybe answers are often found inside gutted establishments, underneath police cars, and written inside the packaging of looted merchandise?

its easy to claim everything is about class when your a majority and can lump every other race together under the term "minority". yet you don't have to worry about your children going outside and being harassed because of their culture or skin color or being murdered by the police. if you don't acknowledge systemic racism then you are being willfully ignorant.

this thread is about the medias double standard in reporting these events and the rhetoric used to describe protesters and rioters. not about who got away with what and how much they had to pay when they got caught.

btw overcompensation doesn't come across well over internet text

Yep I knew it

So....were they looking for answers in the CVS? Or, wait, were the answers in that brand new building built by a church that burned to the ground?

Were the answers they were looking for in the fire hoses they got punctured while firefighters were trying to fight fires that, I suppose, were set "looking for answers?"

violence broke out because the police were the aggressors. unlike these sporting events where their soul purpose was to destroy property for the fun of it
