Not to mention 269er was banned under other usernames. Thanks for popping back up so I could see the connections and fix that problem (though tbh, it should've been fixed a long time ago, I admit).

just be careful.

it's way, way worse to place a "racist" label on the notion that all black people look the same to white people (who aren't being intentionally racist when they say this, it's just how things seem to them -- they're just being honest) than it was for Trayvon to have gotten killed due to a toxic mix of shocking stand-your-ground gun laws (which were *never* meant to help white people get off for shooting black people) and clearly not-racist people mistaking Trayvon for other dangerous criminals who also happen to be black (but the mistake was not made racistly).

it's very upsetting when racist comments are called racist. please think of the feelings of the one making the racist comments and observations and ask yourself if you'd like to be called a racist when you post racist things.

we could all do with being a lot nicer in here. especially to the racist posts by people who claim they didn't mean their racist comments in a racist way.

such a thing would be really helpful to non-white people so they could better understand if a comment or observation or gunshot was intended racistly.

that's a fair point irvine. i haven't been considering the feelings of racists before calling out their racism, and have been ignorant to how dreadfully hurtful it is for a racist person to be called a racist. i really need to sort out my priorities and first consider the impact on the racist before i call them a racist for being a racist. thanks for helping me to refocus on what's really the most important thing here.

4 pages scribed by an Honest Broker should be good enough for us all.

2 posts after BEAL's you make your post about "spending your time on Twitter". Anyone who spends any time in this thread is aware that BEAL constantly quotes/references Twitter posts in this thread, so I'm sorry but your post definitely came across as being directed right towards BEAL. Perhaps as you later claimed that was not the case, but it sure appears that way. It may have been "obvious" to you, but not so much to me and I think a few others.

But I still like your avatar.
OK, that is fair. And crtainly better than calling me a dick while suggesting I am someone else.

Remember this tweet

Maybe it was wishful thinking, maybe the plan was to shut down Mueller all along

As much as I would like to point and laugh at the dumpster fire in the UK, I still think that Trump is worse than anything they have done to themselves.

All these articles claiming the only reason anyone likes Buttigieg is because he’s a white guy are fucking stupid when the oldest white guys around are supposedly still everyone’s “favorite.”

He’s really having a week, isn’t he.

He seems, right now, like the most innately gifted politician in the field. And this is how Democrats traditionally win — through charisma (JFK, B Clinton, Obama). Republicans fall in line, Democrats fall in love.

Obviously, the reverse happened in 2016. And who knows what will happen. I haven’t a clue of who to support.

But he’s awfully good at this.

Yeah, the Republicans fell in hate.

Buttigieg is the real deal. I knew nothing about this guy, but he is a VERY gifted public speaker. Easily the best in the field.

I knew very little about Mayor Pete before I saw his CNN town hall. I was so impressed by everything about him. His answers, his intelligence, his demeanor.

He's the only candidate I've donated to. I had to, he needs to stay in this race. If he can't well that's everything that's wrong with politics.

He is, which apparently also translates to morons wringing their hands over whether or not “being gay is diversity enough” when there’s women and pocs in the race. And it’s such a dumb discussion that adds nothing. These are probably the same asshats who were like “Hey Old Man Biden, you should get Stacey Abrams to be your VP so people don’t complain about you being old and white.” That’s not how representation works but go off I guess.
