During a segment on The Kelly File tonight, Megyn Kelly and D.L. Hughley went at one another about racism. Kelly told Hughley not to assume race is a factor in situations that few details are known about. Hughley told Kelly that his perspective as a black man has led him to see police, in particular, in a way that is different than how she might. That sounds civilized typed out like that, but the actual interaction was very different.
You know what is completely idiotic about this. Fox news trusts a government agency when it clears a cop of wrong doing but Clinton is cleared or a government agency states they will not follow through with charges, the government agency is wrong.

Fox news is for idiots, plain and simple.
15g.) Political Baiting: You will not engage in politically-charged rhetoric, politically-inspired name-calling, and related right-versus-left political bickering while Posting in any topical forum or discussion thread on the Websites. You will not alter political candidate names or party affiliations in order to insult or deride the opposition.
Mud-Pit Rules and Guidelines
The rules and guidelines are simple, basically just two things to remember in addition to common-sense avoidance of vulgarities and personal threats:
Don't throw mud outside of the political mud pit forum.
If you go into the Political Mud-Pit forum,expect to get dirty.
1) Don't throw mud outside of the political mud pit forums.
If you're wandering about ATS, and find a discussion that throttles your political angst, and really really want to start casting harsh aspersions in the direction of one or more political ideologies:
YOU CAN CREATE A NEW THREAD: Quote the post that inspired your ire, link to the non-mud-pit ATS thread, and start a new thread in the Political Mud-Pit forum, making certain not to call-out or otherwise throw mud at any ATS member in the original thread outside the Mud-Pit.
2) It's bad-form throw mud at someone who's not throwing mud.
Even in the Political Mud-Pit forum, there will probably be someone attempting to make a valid point who does so without rancor, name-calling, or other political mud.
Perhaps the topic and direction of discussion is different enough from other threads on ATS that they felt compelled to get involved.
If you can respond without throwing mud, everyone will think better of you… but there is no requirement to put down the mud when you respond.
3) Everything but vulgarities and threats are "tolerated."
We've come to accept that many feel the "political stakes" are so high, that intense debate is necessary, and very often name-calling, baiting, and activity we've previously classified as "Political Trolling" are simply part of the process. Have at. But don't come running to us if someone throws mud harder than you, or hides rocks in their pile of mud.
And to avoid further confusion; restricted topics such as personal drug use, hacking, etc. are still not allowed in the Mud-Pit. Politics only please.

I could say the very same about you. By denying that systemic bias and racism doesn't exist, you are writing off an entire nation's-worth of racism and wiping your own hands of a massive problem.
Sounds pretty gutless to me.
