So apparently 4 Republican Senators and several mayors were outed by anonymous as being associated with the KKK. Only one has publicly denied it so far...

Do we need to remind you that the Klan was invented by the Democrats in the 1890s after the Democrats (South) loss the Civil War and the Democrats were made to give up their slaves by the Republicans (North)

Yes, I always appreciate having that history lesson repeated in here. I think about once a month should do, unless of course someone here forgets then we should do our best to remind them.

The store and the complex's responses were pathetic.

New York Times Describes Robert Dear as “Gentle Loner” https://shar.es/1ci5NG via sharethis


White murderer = gentle loner
Black man = son of a heroin addict


It's just hyperbole folks, nothing to see here.

To sum that link up:

- Members of the Dothan Police Department crimes unit, over the course of several years (potentially more than a decade), planted drugs and weapons on black men they arrested, in order to charge them with crimes they didn't commit.
- Several of these innocent men are still imprisoned.
- When concerned police officers learned of this, they filed complaints asking for an internal investigation
- During the course of the investigation, it was made clear that at least one officer was illegally holding drugs and weapons in his patrol unit, and when confronted by other officers, made statements hinting that they were for planting evidence
- During the course of the investigation, it was made clear that the police department's top management was aware of this and directly attempted to provide cover for it
- The internal investigation was halted and covered up by the department's management and the district attorney.
- The practice of planting evidence continued for several years after the internal investigation was halted. (ie - the district attorney knowingly prosecuted innocent black men for crimes they did not commit, and the internal investigation documenting improper use of evidence/planted evidence was never shared with defense attorneys)
- The police officers responsible for planting evidence, and those in management responsible for the cover up were/are all members of a Neo-Confederacy group that the Southern Poverty Law Center calls "racial extremists."
- Those in management responsible for the cover up were all promoted and now hold prominent positions in law enforcement in Alabama.

Unfuckingbelievable. Wow. Yeah, all the things African Americans have been saying for decades are being proven as true. And people wonder why Americans don't trust law enforcement.

Can't wait for Iron Horse to ignore that and post some RWNJ blog post saying that actually the real problem is reverse racism.

Even Fox News got sick of their own audiences' racism.

I still stand by what I originally posted when I started this thread.

From what I said post 32 ...

-I did not say racism does not exists in America. Please name a country free of racism. This thread is about how racism is exaggerated and used so often when an event like the shooting of a young lack man in Ferguson, Missouri occurs.

-It is a terrible that Michael Brown was killed. I can't even imagine how sad his family must be. His death is something that could have been avoided.

-If the deadly force used by the officer was uncalled for, he or she (white or black) should be prosecuted to the full extent of the law.

-I don't know what happened. I don't know the details.

-This rush to judgment without knowing the facts is wrong.

-I realize there are "bad cops' out there. There are some rouge people everywhere.


This thread was about this mindless, who cares about the facts mob mentality
that rushes to blame every event on racism.


Do you know how it is going with the officers charged in Baltimore
in the death if Freddy Gray? It's the same as what happened in Ferguson.

Concerning the injustices posted by Dieman: Charge and convict them all if they are guilty.
Those crimes are unacceptable and should be punished.

Probably should have, ya know, titled tour thread "The Rush To Judgement in America" if that's the point you were going for... and you'd have an argument there.

But to say that racism in America is simply glorified hyperbole? You kinda sorta got the reaction you deserved.

Well I'm glad to see you've opened your eyes a little. Hopefully you'll come around to see how awful your title was and that turning blame on the "black community" and "race baiters" is part of the problem.

"Name me a country free of racism" is not an excuse, it's just turning yet another blind eye to the issue.

I'm sure you read this article earlier this week. I happened to scan the comments section, most have already been erased, but some were missed.

I'm really not sure what's the relevance of this post other than a generic NK reference?

Simply a retort as ridiculous as the original statement..

What does naming a country have to do with the current issue? Absolutely nothing. It's simply trying to make the issue less significant with a useless statement.
