well ATS shows the division daily, even your comment of racist graffiti shows division, as the people who originally painted it believed in it


ATS would honestly be better if no politics were allowed besides well-thought out conspiracy.

I think politics ruined ATS. I learn some interesting right-leaning opinions here, but in general it has become a political spam fest.

Politics really does create a negative atmosphere.

If ATS wants to survive, i think politics should be removed.

LOL, it's almost as if when you subscribe to the left way of thinking, you erase your ability to see things as they are. yea, I'm tired of the left vs. right bullsh!t too, but from a conspiracy angle, it's as obvious as any other proven conspiracy.

The left ideas are what drives the MSM in general. Most news coverage is overwhelmingly negative of Trump. There was and is a concise effort to remove Trump. Laws were broken to remove Trump. Intelligence groups were weaponized to remove Trump. Congressmen and senators are trying to subvert this administration.

There is a difference between not liking the president, and actively trying to remove him.

This entire political scandal was the biggest scandal in our nations history. A previous president attempted to have the incumbent removed based upon known falsehoods and lies.

That is the kind of thing this site used to be based on rutting out. But with the left's cheerleaders trying to cover all that up, pretend it didn't really happen, or worse yet, accept that it happened, but was OK because BAMN.

And rather than offer a candidate that everyone liked, they left gives us all Joe Biden. I'm sure there isn't anything strange going on behind the scenes on that choice. (scorched earth, bring in socialism/communism.)

Conservative ideas may not all be what the US needs, but when nobody offers anything but "your side is worse", there is nothing to discuss.

I made a post about this "mural".

The mayor is being sued for a civil rights violation because she refused another organization the same courtesy.


When I made the post I had not seen A picture of the "mural".
I thought it was just at an intersection but oh no..
It takes up several blocks.... Da-fuk...


That should never have been approved..

You haven’t heard? Math is racist.
Plus there is no proper way to use statistics. Statistics are used to lie. That is it.

Did you know, a police officer is 18.5 times more likely to be killed by a black than a cop killing an unarmed black person?

Police lives matter.

BLM should change their name to BLMVWC, or they need to start in Chicago where the black lives, appear not to matter.

On topic, the mural is racist.

Thousands and thousands of peaceful protesters white and black say different. Keep focusing on the negative and hate.

I have a feeling that you and many others want to call everyone in the movement racist because actually acknowledging black issues would require looking at a perspective outsidd your own race and experiences.

Most people see BLM as a message of civil rights. Only a portion of white people who refuse to acknowledge or even consider black police issues are the ones spamming "all lives matter" or BLM is racist.

I'm going to reply to your posts separately one at a time for formatting sake on my phone. Forgive me.

First of all, I prefer no lives matter over all lives matter. We're all the same uncomfortable organism writhing in bed, unable to sleep. Black people have way more opportunities and government programs to succeed than any other given races.

BLM is a charitable organization. Why is the community government selectively supporting adverts for certain non-profits on public, taxpayer-funded roadways?

What public streets will be allowed to have government-supported murals saying: "SAVE THE WHALES"..."PETA"...or "PLANNED PARENTHOOD"?

Ahh so because other issues exist, just ignore a systemic issue of police brutality?

BLM is not just a racial issue, but in general is leading alot of people to question the state of our police system.


Police reform is absolutely necessary. But I dont believe there's a systemic racial problem. Read that carefully.


Why are more black people killed by cops on average than white? And why does a large majority of black people feel this way?

This is a deeper question, but it stems into family dynamics. It stems into culture. Its rooted, poorly. Many successful black folks will tell you this.

It's the same with white folks. We're no longer a middle class country.

As to why more blacks are killed by enforcement than whites is fairly obvious. Blacks are more likely to be pressured into a lifestyle that is anti-cultural to American values. You talk "white" well then you're an uncle Tom. On and on. So black folks tend to stay in a culture of crime. It's sad, because if it wasnt from internal pressure to "keep black" then the effects would be much less.

Who's saying black lives don't matter?


The officials murdering them and those who condone it.


Supervising officer during attempted arrest of Eric Garner = black woman officers.
Arresting officers participating in attempted arrest of Freddy Gray = black officers.
Shooting death of Justine Diamond in Minnesota = black officer

The racial element influencing why black suspects are harmed during encounters with police is NIL, or very close to it. Many of the headline cases the MSM and their sycophants like to parade arrund involve a mixture of black suspects and black officers. So what are you really saying: that the black officers participating in these arrests think their OWN lives don't matter? Sounds very odd.

I realize I'm not articulating this very well at the moment. And I frankly dont care if I come off as racist. Its not a race thing. Its class. Whites are on the same end of the stick without dollars.

But. . . . . it offended her.

And if it offended her then she has some sort of right to completely destroy it.

Well, there is no problem in detailing the reasons why you believe the allegations against the Trump administration were a scam.

But to shift the heavy political threads of ATS in the past 3 years on the left is just untruthful.

However, there is just so few middle-grounded threads that focus on the corruption of both left and right.

People are attracted to easy click bait social threads to which they can input their own beliefs. To which im guilty of. I just don't think it's healthy in the long run.

ATS, besides a few ufo threads each month, has felt like it's become too mainstream in its threads. Too much left vs right.

Well, true...she WAS clearly offended by it...hmmmm…

Now, I'm REALLY confused.

IF ONLY we could selectively apply the First Amendment...this would all be much easier.

A white perspective, huh? Jesus dude, black issues are human issues. Its not race based.

Tell me where in any law blacks are at a disadvantage. Because there are plenty of laws giving extra to blacks by way of opportunity in education, employment, funding, and welfare safety nets that the rest of us don't have access to.

ETA: And define "black" because I'm at a loss on all of this here.
