  • Re: Colin Kaepernick refuses “to show pride in a flag for a country that oppresses Black people”...

    Yeah, if you don't take a side then you have already chosen the side of injustice. This is a right or wrong thing and it's that simple. If you cannot clearly point out the issue how can it be addressed? If you straddle the fence then you have not gone anywhere so the problem can not be fixed. Holding cops accountable is not about pleasing anyone, it is simply the "right" thing to do. If you are trying to please someone then you are not actually doing anything useful.

    The problem is that they aren't "not taking a side." They just aren't speaking out as strongly as some want them to. It's not like Cam said there was no brutality or Lebron said everything was all good. They just aren't condemning the bullshit as strongly as we believe the should.

  • Re: Trump vs Hillary Debate Round 1 Tonight

    lol I can't believe there are people so excited about this shit. No matter which one wins, we lose. Our choice is literally between a liar and a lunatic. One might be better than the other, but both of them are no good.

    *shrugs* White people thought there was no racism during Jim Crowe too.

    I don't think even the ignorant whites are foolish enough to relinquish their privilege. In order to obtain true equality whites have to accept being treated likes Blacks are treated by our corrupt and racists govt.

    Yeah, but we don't need them to give up their privilege, at least not all of it. The fact is the majority group will always enjoy some privilege over the minorities. That's fine. We just need them to stop actively trying to hurt us. If we can at least achieve that much, we'll be in a better position to build our own.

    We can't do any of that without having our own media. The media is the most powerful influence of the masses and we have absolutely no control or power in that.

    You have to give someone credit if the shit they are doing is consistently working and kept their opponents in disarray for 100s of years.

    Its not that it even makes sense to them its that they've totally bought into the narrative about black people that is pushed on to everyone in a 24/7 news cycle.

    Truthfully I don't want to change a racists mind from being racist. I just want them to know a price will be paid for their racists acts of violence so its in their best interests to leave my people the fuck alone.

    But who are you giving credit to? The average white person has just been a tool. The rich elite are the ones that have primarily kept us down, and those same rich elite keep working class whites down too. Those working class whites are just too blind to see that. I agree with you though. We do have to have a better way to change the narrative. As long as only outlets for info are the outlets controlled by the enemy, it will be impossible for us to get ahead.

    As far as veiled threat you're making towards white people, it's useless thinking that way. For one, not all whites support random violence against blacks. Like I said, a lot of them are just ignorant. They believe the violence is justified because they believe we are violent savages. You should want some of those whites to see the truth, because they could become our allies in the fight or at the very least be removed as enemies. As for the ones who are just blatant racist, your threats are basically what they want to hear. They want to hear tough talk from blacks and they want us to pop some shit off because they know if it goes down that route, we can't possibly win. So while I think violence may at some point be necessary, I don't think it's in our best interest to be proactive about introducing it. That said, if we keep on getting shot by the police while we're unarmed, there will be a time when we need to approach them while we're armed at all times. If I'm going to be killed, I rather be killed attempting to defend myself.

    Hold on. How the black girl gonna let the white chick kneel and she doesn't. Even if it's not something she wanted to do, she can't not do it when a white person on her team does it.
