Runole, in an almost cartoon character way you are actually screaming “YES, I AM A RACIST” when, as a white guy you post a black guy Or girl who professes to agree with you AND outside .. in the real world we’ve had
…20 days of global protest against racism by MILLIONS
….2 different black men murdered by white cops in two completely different areas of the country
….A black guy hunted down and killed by white red necks in Ga
… every major sports league in the WORLD joining in support of black people including the NFL almost apologizing to Kap
Meanwhile, in the real world protests continue and the entire Premier League is wearing Black Lives Matter on their jerseys and team are taking a knee before e they start playing lol
“ Hundreds of demonstrators took to the streets of London in a show of solidarity with the Black Lives Matter movement, marking the fourth consecutive weekend of anti-racism protests in the United Kingdom.
The demonstration, which has so far proven to be entirely peaceful, began at London’s Hyde Park and moved through the city centre towards the Houses of Parliament, with protesters chanting “no justice, no peace” and “Black lives matter.”
One activist and co-organizer of the UK Black Lives Matter campaign, said she is determined to keep up the momentum gained by the protest movement.”
Runole, saying that someone else is focused on color IN A THREAD THAT YOU CREATED TO TWICE POST BLACK PEOPLE AGREEING WITH YOU (and you are the “all Muslims are terrorist Archie Bunker guy) . . .is beyond parody.
Look, you want to have an honest discussion here. That would begin with each one of the people who posted or positively commented in the Candace thread, the “another Black woman” thread, this thread, and the Uncle Tom thread to FIRST post that it was just coincidence (really?) that they chose black people.
Runole, just coincidence both times or you specifically posted the videos because you felt a black person added credibility to the point you were trying to make?
Since you ignorantly won’t watch the videos which are quite accurate that you dismiss because you are a racist bigot is most telling.
Perhaps you can read the opinion of Walter E. Williams
While it might not be popular to say in the wake of the recent social disorder, the true plight of black people has little or nothing to do with the police or what has been called “systemic racism.”
Instead, we need to look at the responsibilities of those running our big cities.
Some of the most dangerous big cities are St. Louis, Detroit, Baltimore, Oakland, Chicago, Memphis, Atlanta, Birmingham, Newark, Buffalo and Philadelphia. The most common characteristic of these cities is that for decades, all of them have been run by liberal Democrats.
Some cities — such as Detroit, Buffalo, Newark and Philadelphia — haven’t elected a Republican mayor for more than a half-century. On top of this, in many of these cities, blacks are mayors, often they dominate city councils and they are chiefs of police and superintendents of schools.
In 1965, there were no blacks in the U.S. Senate, nor were there any black governors. And only six members of the House of Representatives were black.
As of 2019, there is far greater representation in some areas — 52 House members are black. Nine black Americans have served in the Senate. In recent times, there have been three black state governors.
The bottom line is that today’s black Americans have significant political power at all levels of government. Yet, what has that meant for a large segment of the black population?
Democratic-controlled cities have the poorest-quality public education despite their large, and growing, school budgets.
Consider Baltimore. In 2016, in 13 of Baltimore’s 39 high schools, not a single student scored proficient on the state’s math exam. In six other high schools, only 1% tested proficient in math. Only 15% of Baltimore students passed the state’s English test.
That same year in Philadelphia, only 19% of eighth-graders scored proficient in math, and 16% were proficient in reading. In Detroit, only 4% of its eighth-graders scored proficient in math, and 7% were proficient in reading. It’s the same story of academic disaster in other cities run by Democrats.
Violent crime and poor education are not the only problems for Democratic-controlled cities.
Because of high crime, poor schools and a less pleasant environment, cities are losing their economic base and their most productive people in droves.
When World War II ended, the population of Washington, D.C., was about 800,000; today, it’s about 700,000. In 1950, Baltimore’s population was almost 950,000; today, it’s around 590,000. Detroit’s 1950 population was close to 1.85 million; today, it’s down to 673,000. The population of Camden, New Jersey, in 1950 was nearly 125,000; today it has fallen to 74,000. St. Louis’ 1950 population was more than 856,000; today, it’s less than 294,000.
A similar story of population decline can be found in most of our formerly large and prosperous cities. In some cities, the population decline since 1950 is well over 50%, and that includes Detroit, St. Louis, Cleveland and Pittsburgh.
Academic liberals, civil rights advocates and others blamed the exodus on racism — “white flight” to the suburbs to avoid blacks. But blacks have been fleeing some cities at higher rates than whites.
The five cities whose suburbs have the fastest-growing black populations are Miami, Dallas, Washington, Houston and Atlanta. It turns out that blacks, like whites, want better and safer schools for their kids and don’t like to be mugged or have their property vandalized.
And like white people, if they have the means, black people cannot wait to leave troubled cities.
White liberals and black politicians focus most of their attention on what the police do, but how relevant is that to the overall tragedy?
According to Statista, this year, 172 whites and 88 blacks have died at the hands of police. To put police shootings in a bit of perspective, in Chicago alone in 2020, there have been 1,260 shootings and 256 homicides with blacks being the primary victims. That comes to one shooting victim every three hours and one homicide victim every 15 hours. Three people in Chicago have been killed by police. If one is truly concerned about black deaths, shootings by police should figure way down on one’s list — which is not to excuse bad behavior by some police officers.

Thank you for the video of Brandon Staka,
the former liberal, who voted for Hillary and then started #Walk Away’.
I particularly liked his statement of:
“the left does not practice tolerance or diversity at all when it comes to individual thought or beliefs. If you express an opinion that is outside of their ideology, there is no tolerance and there is no diversity.”
I see this play out over and over by some of the left oriented members on the Cove.
I watched some of the first video. His most impressive statement was not anything he said, it’s that powerful message on his t-shirt—“Make America Godly Again”.
Remember the Pledge of Allegiance. “I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America and to the Republic for which it stands, one nation under God, indivisible, with liberty and justice for all”.
One nation under God.
But America has completely kicked God out of the equation of life. Whether you believe in God or not the framers of this country did and if Americans would just half-way follow the principle of living, taught in the bible, 90% of our problems wouldn’t be problems at all.
In America today, money is our God. And the bible clearly tells us –“the love of money is the root of all evil”. All the killings in Chicago and the other big cities mentioned are evil produced by the love of money.
I’ve read posts on this board basically saying as long as my 401K is growing fast, the character of the POTUS is immaterial. The Love of money. But how can you teach your kids lying is wrong when you totally support a man, at the top, who lies every day? How can you teach your kids character is important when you totally support a man, at the top, with absolutely no character.
“Indivisible”—is supposed to be America’s ultimate goal. But we are becoming more and more divided every day. Black vs White—Left vs Right, Democrat vs Republican–etc. Division is an ungodly, totally destructive mind-set that our fore-fathers sought to drive us away from.
With Liberty and Justice for all. You can say or think what you want and sure looting and burning is inexcusable, but all the protestors are asking for is liberty and justice for “ALL”.
There is a prophetic statue in the Book of Daniel that outlines the entire history of the world. It’s extremely difficult to interpret but it’s so amazing so see it’s message being perfectly fulfilled right before our eyes during this period of time, the bible calls the last days. But in 67 AD, in 2 Timothy 3:1-5, the Apostle Paul perfectly describes the atmosphere that’s prevalent in our country today. “Read it”.
Kicking God out of the equation of life leads to destruction.
“MAKE AMERICA GODLY AGAIN”.
Common sense and reasoning are absent from the boards racist Bigot Shankley who apparently thinks so little of people of color that they are incapable of succeeding in America without his White Supremacist help.
Runole is not alone though. Here is the same type of thing, but from a Congressman
Asked Kevin McCarthy what he thought about Trump’s use of the term “Kung Flu,” and he didn’t answer but criticized the question. “When we have seen a spike in coronavirus, you’re concerned about somebody and the way they name it. That’s appalling to me.”
