Name calling is the best you could come up with. I would rather see you ripping the reply to shreds instead of childish monikering.

more whites are killed by police than blacks, FACT, proportionately more blacks commit crimes than whites FACT. And even if we use your twisting of statistics than if more blacks proportionately commit crimes than whites would it not make sense that they are killed by police in a higher proportion to whites?

Yet the commission hasn't put a ban on it.

All I see is you being extremely angry because a business isn't being run the way you want it to be.

A lot more than their owners and CEO's who wouldn't stand for wearing a cancer ribbon sticker on their helmet and then allows this.

ucr.fbi.gov...

Using your same logic as to why blacks are discriminated when you say they only make up 13% of the population. They only make up 13% of the population yet commit 28% of the crime, where as white as you claim make up 70% of the population and are responsible for 68% of crime. So black in proportion to their population make up are responsible for a disproportionate amount of the crime.


Your first argument was that more whites are shot by police than blacks, then it was pointed out to you that whites make up more of the population.

Then you said blacks commit more crime, then it was pointed out that whites commit far more crime (being that they are the majority).

Now you're foundering and trying to save face after being proven wrong. Twice.

A sticker does not offend as many as does disrespecting the our National Anthem and our flag.

No you guys are the ones that want to ignore the raw numbers and use proportions( percentage of race make up) to make it look like cops are racist. I am simply saying if you want to use proportioning it has to be used both ways, if blacks proportionately commit more crime than whites, than does it not make sense they would be killed proportionately more than whites?

Well then people need to grow up if someone kneeling hurts their special little feelings.

In the land of the free and the home of the brave, a citizen's civil rights are far more important than a piece of cloth or a song.

besides the fact that their intentions were not coming out of disrespect for their country but the actual opposite.

Disrespectful to the flag, you say? Have you actually looked at the US Flag Code? Here it is (HERE) and here are a few of things that are listed as being officially disrespectful to the flag (found in Section 176).


(d) The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery. It should never be festooned, drawn back, nor up, in folds, but always allowed to fall free. Bunting of blue, white, and red, always arranged with the blue above, the white in the middle, and the red below, should be used for covering a speaker's desk, draping the front of the platform, and for decoration in general.


(i) The flag should never be used for advertising purposes in any manner whatsoever. It should not be embroidered on such articles as cushions or handkerchiefs and the like, printed or otherwise impressed on paper napkins or boxes or anything that is designed for temporary use and discard. Advertising signs should not be fastened to a staff or halyard from which the flag is flown.


(j) No part of the flag should ever be used as a costume or athletic uniform. However, a flag patch may be affixed to the uniform of military personnel, firemen, policemen, and members of patriotic organizations. The flag represents a living country and is itself considered a living thing. Therefore, the lapel flag pin being a replica, should be worn on the left lapel near the heart.

You should probably read the entire list. Then you'd see just how hypocritical some of you are about this.

How would I even being ripping a post like this apart?

It's barely even held together... I had to read it multiple times just to understand it.

The same way people need to grow up when their special little feelings get hurt by someone who disagrees with them? or by an inanimate object such as a statue or monument, or history?

Where did anyone say cops are racist?

Man, you're really going off the rails now.

Yes! 100% yes!

It's beyond rediculous.
