No one wants to put people on trains. Well, that's not true. We found out a couple days ago that the extreme Right Wing sure does like Trumps plan on immigration to create a new force to track-down and remove illegal immigrants from the US.


I know more Democrats who like Trump than Republicans! Surprised you didn't figure a coy smart ass way to throw "Hitler" into your partisan diatribe........

I have this feeling there is a small group who won't be happy until every Black person has experienced racism similar to what their grandparents or older generations experienced once upon a time in America.

Ahh...what to do with those "small groups"?


Of course you are right that there are small groups on both sides that are extreme racists. It is up to the rest of us to call these people out no matter what side they are on. Luckily, I honestly believe those are small groups.

The problem I have is what the mainstream is now deciding. Academia in general has made the idea of "white privilege" and "patriarchy" a mainstream view for many on campus. Challenging these ideas will get you labeled a racist or bigot.

We are now seeing the fruits of years of this. People that would probably otherwise be open to reasonable debates are silencing there opponents, demanding safe spaces, and feel that all of their shortcomings are to be blamed on others.

LOL...Actually, now that you mention it, you're right. Most of my Democrat family and friends prefer Trump to Hillary....some are also quite liberal.

Anecdotal. Means absolutely nothing.

I can, if you'd like. Perhaps I was able to get that point across without a coy, smart ass tactic. You seem to have taken it that way.

As far as partisan diatribe, it is not. There is a thread on the topic and many media sources that can be read as well. Trump wants to create new forces to do just what I described. Trump is running for president as a Republican.

Now I know facts are all too often inconvenient, but they are what they are and facts are not partisan.

It's the Clinton stealth plan ... Trump. Not that I'm sure I believe that although after his answer in the debate about taking all the oil in the ME, it made me wonder.

"Safe Space" Students Silence Asian Woman For Saying "Black People Can Be Racist"


VIDEO: www.youtube.com...



Published on Nov 12, 2015
Students at Claremont McKenna College in California who are demanding a racially segregated "safe space" for "marginalized identities," silenced and embarrassed an Asian woman when she described how she had been racially harassed by an African-American man.


STORY:



Students at a “safe space” at Claremont McKenna College in California shut down an Asian woman who was describing racial harassment by a black man, booing her when she declared, “black people can be racist.”

“I came to this country five years ago when I was fifteen, alone, through a boarding school in Pennsylvania,” the Asian student began. “And all I heard is, ‘if you don’t speak English, go home.’ ‘If you don’t speak good English, go home.’ ‘I don’t date Asians,’ and ‘I’d like to have sex with a girl from all the continents that’s why I want to date you.'”

She then recounted a time when she and a group of friends were walking down the street, and a black man pulled over and shouted, “go back to your home!” She said a “white lady” stopped to ask if the young women needed police assistance.

“The point I’m making here is that we should not distinguish people by their race or gender or anything. Black people can be racist,” she declared, at which point a black woman holding a sign that reads “It’s too late to say sorry” approached her.

“Oh no honey,” someone in the crowd said over a chorus of boos.

A few “safe space” participants told their peers to let the young woman talk. “Let her finish,” someone suggested.

“I just mean we have to look at people individually,” the Asian woman said, telling her fellow classmates they should “look at the heart. The action, not the race.”

As other members approached the woman and grabbed for the microphone, someone in the crowd asked, “how is this relevant to the college failing to provide a space for people of color?”

Also, I haven't seen anyone mention or even suggest that this is a case of us, as a society, getting what we deserve. Is this a monster of our own creation? Many, if not most, of us are quick to expose racist cases like this and to denounce them, but we often forget that we turned a blind eye to the systemic racism against black people. We said that black "thugs" deserved what they got in their interactions with Law Enforcement, even when it appeared that they may have been targeted because of their race.


I can't speak for all people, but I have been adamant that any police abuse should be investigated and prosecuted to the fullest extent allowed. I also have no doubt there are racist that feels like every black person killed deserves it, and that is repugnant. I don't think this is the majority opinion though.

What you have seen is people looking at specific situations like Mike Brown and saying that the cop was justified in this shooting. This isn't a race based claim, but one based on the facts of the case, including forensics. The question is, why was this case used as the focal point for the media and BLM when there are much more cut and dry cases of police corruption? I think that BLM people get to claim things like everyone says anytime a black is killed by a police officer people say they deserved it.



I think we need to ask ourselves that question. Is this the effect of the pendulum swinging back the other way after years and years of racism directed towards blacks?


As in all peoples racism? I don't believe that is the case. The issue of systemic racism is avery complicated one, and although there are area of "white privilege" there are also areas of "black privilege". Academia seems to be one of the area where whites are demonized. I think kwhat we are seeing is less a result of us all being racist, and more of a result of allowing generations of college studennts to be taught that all whites have a privilege over everyone else, that the world owes everyone something, and that people have the right to censor those that offend them.


Now we need to address the hypocrisy issue. I see many people that have commented on this thread, saying that this is wrong and against the freedom of the press for them to push the media out, yet these are the same people that say black "thugs" get what they deserve, turn a blind eye to systemic racism and targeting by law enforcement, and have no problem with rights being violated and the constitution being trampled when it fits their agenda. Just look at the thread discussing Trump's plan to create a new "force" of storm troopers to deal with immigration.

I find it very hypocritical for some of you to say the things you say in this thread, yet in others we can see that you do not care about what is right or wrong as unless the goal coincides with your beliefs.


I mentioned the systemic racism above. Maybe there are people that justify rights being violated, I am not one of them. There seems to be a difference here though. These people are saying, we need a safe space, no one may disagree with us, and only our color can be here. I don't usually see people on other threads claiming people not be allowed to disagree with them.

I find your trump point interesting. I think that many people assume everyone who agrees with Trump on immigration (which I don't) iss a racist. This is not the case. Some may be, but many are just upset that are laws are being broken and our economy is struggling, and they feel that more concern is being given for unlawful citizens than the lawful. Assuming they are all racist is a step towards censoring them and silencing debate.


And for those of you that say "if this was a white person doing this...", etc, you're not helping one bit. In fact, you're perpetuating the same mindset and false narratives that drives these dumb kids to do what they are doing.


Then how are we to point out the hypocrisy of these social justice warriors? Would it have been detrimental for blacks during the civil rights movement to say "If a white person would been drunk in public they would be sent home with a slap in the wrist, but a black person would be hauled off to jail."


So I find it sad that these kids would be so arrogant and non-inclusive after they achieved what they believe to be a victory, and it's even sadder that the hypocrites come out of the woodwork to point fingers and blame, yet have no sense of self-respect to recognize that they are part of the problem as well.



I am glad you disapprove of what these people are doing.

I saw that video. This young lady seemed to honestly be trying to say we should not focus on skin color, that people of all skin colors can be both good and bad, and she was asked to leave. Notice the girl on the bullhorn said "We ae losing sight of the movement!" That is because the movement isn't about proving we are all equal, its about saying one color of people are evil, and the other never can be. And if a person outside of both groups has an opinion that doesn't jive with this, they to are told to leave.

I can't help but think of this quote:

"If you you don't want to be part of the solution; there good money to be made perpetuating the problem."

Sympathetic fellow students (of the wrong melanin) were "excluded" in the basis of skin color. The irony...it hurts.

And as to my above mentioned belief of "good money to be made perpetuating the problem" here is my thesis for review.

Why did the initial "safe space" NOT want any photography of the "history" being made on the tent city on the Quad? Camera shy? Delicate "safe spacers?" Maybe, or maybe some of the tent city residents are t students at all. Maybe they are PAID instigators (dare I say community organizers?) driving in from the fizzled ops in Ferguson.

Something really seems manufactured here.

Discuss.

Sorry, but this whole case is engineered. Why is this a sudden problem? As many of you noticed, there is little information about the real reasons of this sudden "racism" charges available.

It's like "Hey we didn't had a racist situation for a couple weeks - well that's unacceptable - we need to remind the people".

I am disgusted by these students and these are the people who will run this country eventually? Hell no!

I don't even believe that the majority takes this serious - they just out there for being out there .. oh cool - that's fun to be part of this demonstration... nuts, just nuts .. without understanding the implications of their actions.

I have this all around me .. most of my team members are post-millennials and I can see their arrogance and little effort. I don't would call them lazy but they definitely don't take things seriously sometimes with very negative impacts.

Also why do people with black skin are called colored people? Black is technically not a color. White is considered a color that emits all colors together. Then again, no one with "pale" skin has a true white color. So that by itself could be considered racist.

Maybe it should be light and dark colored skin :-D haha .. gets worse every time.

I can't believe that we STILL have these discussions!

So segregation gave way to integration, which has failed, and now goes full circle to voluntary segregation.

LOL

Really? Really? Really?

I hope nobody in this forum is participating in this intolerant and racist scheme with no goals just for the pleasure of disrupting.

Just watch out for those who shout the loudest - they are probably no students at all.

All this reminds me of a line in a song that goes as follows..............I'm not going to spend my life being a color. When one thinks like this they separate themselves form the human race. Were all in this together. That was the beauty of Martin Luther King. My 2 cents.

No, the "LGBT experience" is not equivalent to Borderline Personality Disorder or any other mental illness, personality disorder or disease.

EDITED FOR CONTENT

Many of these folks identify as different genders, back and forth, depending on the day. Or the hour, lmao.

There can be no other descriptions beside mental illness.

Someday soon, we're just gonna have to stop trying to make denials that could never make sense, anywhere, in any possible way.
