    What a disturbing trend. Thanks Darth for the details.

    If you have the sort of training you say you do, your purposefully skewed definition of racism in an attempt to mock the people who have been fighting for decades to incorporate power-dynamics as part of the word's definition is irresponsible. Power, whether cultural, socio-economic, or representative, is what makes racism systemic, yes, but it is not limited to white people, which is why racism in Canada, Europe, China, Japan, Korea, Brazil and other places does get talked about in detail. In North America, people like Trump in terms of race and class have that power.

    The thing to remember, that with Japan, is that it is extremely not diverse.

    That's why I honestly believe that blacks are the real Jews, scattered through out the world and persecuted for the dumbest of reasons. That verse in Revelations about Jesus saying about them saying they are Jews and are not sticks out. Seems like blacks get it worldwide and there is no reason given.

    ...

    In two of the cases of three cases you posted which led to deadly force, it's reasonable to believe the person was a threat.

    Well that's just completely false. Tell that to my work friend. She is a 50 year old married white woman whose had the neighbors call the cops on more than once. First for having wind chimes in her yard and a separate occasion for just burning wood pellets in her fire pit. This happens all the time to white people with nosy pain in the ass neighbors. It just doesn't make national news.

    Are you posting this stuff to somehow prove that racism doesn't exist?

    My last post was a joke/reference to something Krypton said, "the usual suspects".

    Pretty clear he's inferring nothing of the sort. Only that traffic stops are dangerous business a lot of the time, and not complying with cop's instructions tends to be taking your life into your own hands.

    Not really. Basically the same deal in Canada & Australia in terms of the cautious approach gun-not-drawn-but-at-the-ready. Less shootings to content with, but it's all basically standard cop policy.

    Are you responding to the video just posted? If so... You missed the point I think.

    Yeah, they just said Frisco's the highest rent in the world yesterday. Maybe address that, bubble-living yuppies, might go a way to curbing your homeless problem.

    All that stuff about the cops just stopping even trying with the petty-crime stuff is pretty par-for-the-course these days in California, minor robberies and all. Belly of the beast with that type of insanity out here now. San Diego seems to have a better handle on some of this stuff, but parts of L.A. here are getting bananas.

    Is it improving any in New York, with the transit stations and all? Heard it was a little touch-and-go there for a while in the early days of De Blasio, but he might have done an about-face since.

    Papa John's founder John Schnatter resigns as chairman of board after using racial slur

    This is like Sitcom bumbling levels stupidity and lack of self awareness :funny:

    Schnatter sticks his foot in his mouth and loses his CEO position. Then while training how not to stick his foot in his mouth, he loses his chairman position.

    KFC founder Harlan Sanders who was born in rural 19th century Indiana so he probably did say racist stuff like a lot of people from his generation. Not a great idea comparing yourself in 2018 to a guy from another time period though. Also Sanders has been dead for forty years :ebr:

    Also if your doing racial sensitivity training and trying to prove your not a racist, don't bring up how black people were brutally murdered where your from :facepalm:

    I love how that sort of stuff is reported as indicative of some huge epidemic. The guy said something awful, was called on it, and he's out on his ass. As he should be, the system worked.
