At this moment, the top two threads on the front page of ATS are about racism. Both are about two black guys calling for the killing of white cops. Here's an idea: why not just drop it? Why are we giving these racist scum the exposure they so clearly want? The more we spread this crap the further their agenda is pushed and the more their face and name are exposed to a bigger and bigger audience.

Yeah, racism is a hot topic right now, it gets all the stars and flags, blahdee blahdee blah. Well guess what, every time we spread this stuff, not only are we furthering these racist individuals goals, we're also furthering the government and medias goals as well. The media is using our race to DIVIDE us, that's why they talk so much about it! They WANT us to hate each other, and the best way to do that is to sensationalize all these racists and the comments they make about killing white people or black people.

So tell me, how are we any better than them right now? I can't count the amount of times a racism thread has been at the top of ATS over the past couple of months. Flags and stars everywhere, racism being front line and center almost every single day. Can't you guys see that you are playing right into their hands with this kind of stuff being talked about and debated EVERY SINGLE DAY ON THIS SITE!?

The outrage I've been seeing over these videos and stories on both sides of the debate will eventually lead to one thing and one thing only: racism. If we keep hearing about these people's racist opinions and continue to get upset and outraged over them, it will eventually lead to racism! Repetition is the key to brainwashing people and every time we get outraged over racist remarks, we get a little more racist ourselves. We may not notice at first, but as time goes on we begin to have subtle changes in attitude towards one another. It's simple psychology.

Should we plaster a killers face all over the news 24 hours a day 7 days a week and make him famous for being a bad person? Of course not! It only encourages others to get their 15 minutes of fame themselves, this is why mass shootings have been happening as frequently as they have, because the media glorifies the killer in today's world! So why are we doing the same with racism? The more we talk about it the more it will spread. The more outraged we get, the more we distance ourselves from one another.

Racism is nothing new, it has been a part of civilization for as long as recorded history. People have been making racist remarks for thousands of years, even before this whole #blacklivesmatter crap started. So why are we now starting to make such a big deal about it? Becuase the MEDIA is! That is the ONLY reason it is such a hot topic on this site right now, because the media has infiltrated even our minds with their sensationalization. We who "deny ignorance" seem to be spreading it just as much as the propaganda machines we call the MSM.

How about we stop spreading this crap? It is doing a disservice to race relations and only fueling the fire that the media and government started and want to keep going.

How about we stop glorifying these racists and start unifying together? The more we talk about division, the more we become divided ourselves. The definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. We keep posting these racist threads expecting it to "wake people up" and end racism. Well, it's not working and to keep posting them is, in my opinion, the definition of insanity.

So guys, why don't we make a pact to stop posting about this stuff? Every time we do, we are playing right into TPTB hands. Deny ignorance right? Why are we acting so ignorant as to do the bidding of those we are trying to fight against? Let's stop giving in to their mind games shall we? Hopefully this thread will make some kind of impact because I see this as a huge issue on a site that I love.

Thank you for reading.

well some of the posters are literally paid to do what you're complaining about, the rest are mostly being baited.

Agreed.

This is all a distraction.

Pit the common man against the common man and keep the discussion away from the true enemy.

Exactly! And people fall for it hook, line, and sinker. Very sad.

With the internet today, what those in power do is clearer than ever before, we're more connected than ever before. We no longer have to rely on their sources for information, we can get it instantly from people who actually witnessed it happen before any news source reports on it. This is why the world is in such chaos right now. They know that they are in the spotlight so they have ramped up the propaganda to try to distract us from what they are doing behind the scenes.

This whole race war thing didn't come out of nowhere, it has been in the works for some time.

Yup. Most people will wait for the monopolized media to put their spin on a story and run with it.

No research. No reflection.

Now apathy is not just accepted, it is seen as something cool.

Agreed.

Ignorant racist people who say inflaming things like those guys don't need ATS to be their echo chamber.

What about those who attack someone and call racism because they don't agree?

It has to be a two way street.

Why do they want that? What does that serve?

Are there not black people who kill whites based on racial prejudice, as well as whites who kill blacks for the same ignorant reasons? Do they not already have enough broken humans to fill their prime time slots for eternity?

Why do they want us to hate each other? To sell a paper? Pretty sure porn does a better job.

This, to me, is another case of reality being too much for some people, so they must invent insidious nefarious behind the scene shenanigans orchestrated bys shadowy cloaked figures who gather at midnight in black robes touch each others butts..

Walk into a bad neighbourhood. Tell me if the media was there telling people who attacked you, to attack you. no? Could it be, that some human are just crap? There are cowards out there. Barbarians. Sadistic masochists. People who enjoy pain themselves, as much as inflicting it on others... but it's the media, making all the hippies get mad and angry at each other.. without the media, pretty much we'd be living in nirvana, I rekon.

Because they know that they can be pinpointed easier than ever before. They don't want people going after the real enemy, they want us to go after each other. That's why they want to divide us, to distract us from the real enemy: themselves, just as another poster has already pointed out.

And yeah, there are some pretty scummy people in this world, I'll give you that. But why does the media focus all of their attention on the scum? Because they want to sensationalize things, make it seem as if these scum are part of the majority when in fact they are the minority. Yet if you make people believe they are the majority, with time it will come true. People will begin having trust issues on a wider scale, and this is exactly what we are seeing today. Chaos, all brought on by those manipulating us through the media and world events.

Sounds like a fiction novel doesn't it? Well it's real.

Uh how I wish that it would end, but oh how I know that it wont.

We are bred and fed the same nonsense. I used to get angry at the individual, but at this point I just feel sorry for them, they yell and scream in droves, and while we look on, knowing that this is making things worse, and those of us who are trying to get people to reason with the real facts, it gets passed on and the fighting/misunderstandings/racism and media sensationalism continues.

I think the best way to at least TRY to change this, is to go into those threads and be a little light, add some facts, not just speculation. I have found that sometimes when the majority rules, sometimes a sound mind, and a fact thrown around here or there can make a difference. Sure most will skim it, but it still enters the subconscious and on some level clicks.

I think being very aware of what is going on, and talking about it, is essential right now. Everything that is happening in the street, is direct from the world mismanagement team, their minions, some played and some hired or blackmailed into it, some released from prison, some imported. This can't be ignored, and it shows some very bad plans.

Having peace, love, holding positive thoughts, does not mean wearing a blindfold. It means seeing for real what is going on, and trying to be diplomats, wayshowers, and also get in the faces of every single elected minion employee of the people and shake that tree hard, so hard they fall on their heads. Love is also SERVE AND PROTECT. We're not allowing them to destroy the world and reset it to barbarism and lowest denominator.

This is why I tried to post something positive in the midst of all of this to combat the negative threads and hate. Sadly, it most likely won't go over too well on this site considering what Xada said above.

Here is the link to the thread if you want just a bit of uplifting humanity for a minute.

If the media didnt glorify this news mongering behavior, you would see less people thinking it is important.

I wonder if visible websites like ATS were to do the opposite, if it would reduce the mongering, at least here, that feed those that call this news, as opposed to it being unnecessary and unnatural deviant behavior

In order to combat ignorance, one must be made aware of the nature of the weapons being used in its service. To know the method of ones enemy, is to know their defeat.

Do you think we in the UK suffer from racists as much as the USA? when I was younger I heard more racism but to be honest I live in a multi cultural place and I rarely see it to be honest.

I think there are shadowed corners of every town and city which harbour the thugs and fools who subscribe to the BNP, Britain First, and the like. Luckily the ignorant dross who subscribe to these things are no more the majority than are the dangerous elements in implanted cultures in our midst, and thus, were they ever to attempt to gain any traction, they would be cut down in short order by the righteous fury of the majority, a fact which does our ancestors great honour.

We owe it to those who have come before us, those living now, and those who will come after us, to battle these elements wherever they are to be found, no matter whether their hate issues from right wing supremacist ideology, or theocratic embuggerment. This nation which contains the world, is worth too much to its citizens, for the righteous amongst them to allow hatred to rule its streets. I speak not of the righteousness of faith, but of purpose.

Our purpose is peace, equality, and harmony. If pressed, we will not relent in the pursuit of that harmony, even if it means we must wreak bloody havoc to safeguard it. Those most prepared for peace, will never allow appeasement rather than make war on the enemies of harmony.

Well, it's electioneering time in the US, and just about anything goes in that political agenda. Of course there are problems, everyone knows that, but at times like electioneering the discourse just gets dirtier and dirtier, fed by a big fat $.
Some sympathy with OP here, when it is something needing discussion, we get besieged by the, 'Off with their heads' brigade...and some help they are.

We definitely have a problems, but it's not on the same level as in the USA. Which is deep seated or deep seeded, never sure which term is correct.

Stop spreading racism? What are we supposed to talk about in the Political Mudpit? Issues?

How can you have a Donald Trump thread without spreading racism?
