The problem with your idea of racism is that you claim it is defined on the region they are in.

You say a black person in America can't be a racist which implies that if that same person was in Africa they would be. Which is wrong a racist is a racist no matter where they are. You cant drop a clan member in Somalia and all of a sudden they lose the racist status because they are out of power nor had any power they are still a racist.


No, the clan member would still be a racist in Africa if they were from America, because regardless of their placement, they would still be in a position of power from a worldwide standpoint. Have you heard of apartheid?

And, we are not talking about other places. We are talking about America. Here and now, people of color do not, have not, and as far as the current ways of thinking, cannot hold power when it comes to race. Our history makes sure of that.

This country was founded on genocide, and was built on slave labor. Both involved the displacement of people of color.

This is a pretty accurate representation for the new normal of embraced ignorance.

Who cares about context when you could simply throw your stones? You literal little minds are really great with mincing words tho, gotta give you that.

its technically not racist , as she isn't implying that they are less than or more than any other person because they are white , just that they are responsible for the most deaths, if factually correct then it isn't racism !

And that way of thinking sets you up to believe that the only way you can ever relive yourself of that racism is to completely annihilate the other race. NEATO!

Are you looking forward to the race war?

All trained up and ready to kill you some whities?

ANd don't tell me all we need to go is go into a system that enforces equal outcome for all because that's communism/Marxism. Guess what? That's also a system created by a white man. You aren't doing anything new or revolutionary and putting yourself in the same position -- a system of white oppression by your own twisted philosophy.

And several times people have walked you through the statistics as to why her argument is fallacious, but hey, let's ignore those facts too.

It's like saying more white folks are on food stamps which is true from a raw numbers perspective, but when taken from the perspective of relative percentage of the population, certain segments of the population have an outsize proportion of their populations on food stamps as compared to whites even if there are more absolute numbers of whites on food stamps.

The same with this - certain segments of the population, although much less in number, commit an outsize proportion of violent crimes as compared to whites although whites have the raw numbers due to overall percentage of the population.

I also note that progressives are very, very happy to use population percentages and proportions to call for racism when this or that workplace doesn't have a workforce that perfectly represents the percentage makeups of the overall outer population, but when it comes to stuff like this, you ignore as suits your purposes because looking into percentages makes certain un-PC truths stand out.

Which facts? The fact, that you idiots took an answer to a hypothetical question out of context and minced words, probably because you couldn't keep up with the depth of the whole conversation?

That's what I see. And Foxy News rewriting the script from Mehdi's "conservatives" to "Americans", of course.

Ain't no depth to it.

You guys invent depth and nuance to make yourself seem intellectual and to excuse flip comments your polticos make. She said what she said just like Trump says what he says.

It's the same level as Obama making his remarks about his grandmother being a typical white woman. Face it, their are ugly stereotypes on all sides, and Omar is not immune to them.

Cool! So we invented intelligence and context to make you come across like ignorant morons as well?

Except that she illustrated the fear driven stereotypes with laying out the irrational logic at play.

Mince me some more words, baby!

There is nothing to say to this post.

That is because the truth is that Omar is the most openly racist Congress member since byrd.
The fact that it is part of her platform and the dnc agrees with her is disgusting.

oh really?
tears for the conquered peoples all around.
sorry not sorry we were better at war than the "indigenous" peoples.

where, prey tell, did those slave you sited come from?
they weren't captured and sold into slavery by people of color were they?
can't be, because as you so eloquently state people of color do not hold power, right?
nice try don lemon wannabe

none of which changes the fact that omar is a vile racist representing the worst in the party that was proud to have byrd as a member.

That is just the math...


The truth is the narrative about violent black uprisings and such was never accurate


She lies like a rug in a rubbish bin 🤣

What are the leading causes of death in the US?


Around 74% of all deaths in the United States occur as a result of 10 causes. Over the past 5 years, the main causes of death in the U.S. have remained fairly consistent.




11.) White folk

We just didn't make the top 10 cut. Always a bridesmaid never a bride.

Well, my hopes is that her and the other 3 do not make a 2nd term but Trump does.

I will laugh and dance the irish jig

Yeah ...

About this country being founded on genocide.

Most of what happened to the native people on this continent is due to accidents of geography and evolution that created conditions where plagues developed in the Old World and not the New, so when the inevitable happened and the two populations mixed, those plagues spread with the inevitable results. It was going to be bad, no way around it. But it was not intentional on anyone's part.

Well, if I said that about any other race, I'd be told it was racist, so seems to me that what's fair is fair. I believe she made a racist statement.

For a start anyone who believes that races exist , are ignorant of biological facts !

there is no biological basis for race !

we are one homo sapiens sapiens

anyone who says different is just an ignorant fool

so when we start talking about "race" , "my race ", "your race "

then we start talking division

anyone banging on about their race as being separate from homo sapiens , well they could be considered a racist
but only because they do not understand the biology our species

You need to read a dictionary and put down your critical race theory Marxist handbook.
