I’ll tell you though, you really see how much racist hatred is pent up in too many Americans when a black man is the bad guy.
AdLib 7 days ago
Oh man, I took a glance at Yahoo, and man the racists were coming out of the woodwork. It was disgusting.

When black men are being murdered, it’s their fault that they didn’t obey cops properly. When they murder white people, they’re animals who should be put down.

Yes, saw that! On many sites, I was on the local NBC Dallas station’s site and the aggressive racism was rampant.

I must say, That this terrible incident did not surprise me. What surprises me is that it didn’t happen sooner. I’m not condoning it, but I’m certainly not surprised.

I have to agree and I am even surprised it was only one mentally unstable individual. Of course, it’s horrible, just as far as cause and effect goes, it seemed like there could only be so many murders of innocent white men and cops always getting off, that eventually someone would act out. I think it drove him off the edge, seeing both of thoose men murdered.

Did you see Trump’s robotic, script-reading response? It was as inauthentic as a plastic pickle.
AdLib 7 days ago
no, I missed that. I was wondering if he was going to spout off, as usual.

Don’t worry, it will get swept under the rug once again by the Repubs and white elite who don’t want to admit racism still exists.
AdLib 7 days ago
Yeah the shootings in Minn and Lousiana definitely were a motivating factor.

Did you see the Lt Gov of Texas go full metal racist?
AdLib 7 days ago
Missed that too. I watched a lot of vids about covering the shooting.

MSNBC had a banner up all day, “BREAKING NEWS!” while they just repeated the same info over and over. I seriously am considering a false advertising suit against them…well…maybe not so seriously.

Check this out: Lt. Gov. Dan Patrick of Texas on Friday called the protesters assembled in Dallas the night before “hypocrites” for expecting police protection from the sniper fire while they were protesting police violence. “All those protesters last night, they ran the other way expecting the men and women in blue to turn around and protect them,” Mr. Patrick told Fox News. “What hypocrites!” Mr. Patrick also blamed protesters for creating volatile situations like the one in Dallas the night before, which ended with five law enforcement officers dead and seven officers and two civilians wounded. “And I understand the First Amendment, I understand freedom of speech, and I defend it,” he said. “It is in our Constitution, it is in our soul, but you can’t go out on social media and mainstream media and everywhere else and say that the police are racist, that the police are hateful, the police are killers.” He added: “Too many in the general public who aren’t criminals but have a big mouth are creating situations like we saw last night.” http://www.nytimes.com/live/news-dallas-shooting-protest/texas-lt-gov-dan-patrick-calls-dallas-protesters-hypocrites-for-running-from-snipers-bullets/

That sounds like them. I watched a bit of Morning Joe and was irked about how they kept going on about how “shocking,” this was. They have been reporting the killings of innocent black men for over a year now, and they’re shocked? Give me a fucking break. What, are they that out of touch with reality?

I hurt for you my American friends.I am not a good enough writer to express what I think is going on in your country.The whys,the causes.I believe it all can be explained in the inequality that has existed for so long.It has manisfested itself in so many ways.Money(corporations) are winning.Playing on fear and pitting groups groups against each other is at the heart of the strategy.In a weird way I think the election of Barack Obama has exposed it all.Most whites did not vote for him.With times being tough,it was not hard to convince a lot of them to rebel.Trump exposed it in a big way.Maybe this will all lead to an explosion of sorts,and a real dialogue can take place
