  1. Darken up Harrison’s face in the ad – have him lurking in the shadows — off to the side of the white lady. Classic race tactics…disgusting !

      It’s typical racist methods to create fear for the sanctity of whiteness and white women.
      The class D.W Griffith,Birth Of A Nation black man,stealing the virginity of the virtuous white woman! A.K.A Lindsey Grahams fantasy clearly starring himself as…the white woman!

      You almost said something that is relevant, but you failed to be correct. Close. I really mean it. I know you are trying.

      First, “being white” is not the highest privilege. The highest privileges will never change. They are money, power, and attraction. They have nothing to do with race. If you have one of them, you are privileged. But it highly depends on if it was handed to you or you earned it.

      To say that the majority race of a country is the most privileged would be correct! A better answer would be “Duh!”

      So we could say that China has Chinese privilege, Iran has Iranian privilege, Japan has Japanese privilege, and so in…in Uganda, Ugandans are the privileged group, of course!!!, they are the majority. So foolish like I’m talking to small children that think with their eyes.

      There is no one with more privilege than an attractive woman, for example, in the US currently.

      Race is NOT getting worse. Not even close. It’s much much much better than 50 years ago, my god! Of course. It takes time. There is nothing you can do about it. Slavery put blacks behind in education. That’s the most damaging effect slavery had on its population. It’s the saddest thing to watch.

      I feel pretty good about the laws of our land though. Yes think everyone has equal opportunities under the law. I may be forgetting something though, that’s why I asked in my last post…if you can show me where I should fight specifically, then we can work on policy or legislation for it. I fight real injustices, not fake ones. There isn’t a problem of police killing unarmed black men so not much to do there. Only 10 or so in 2019.

      Anything else you can come up with to pass legislation for or actually work on?

      Shame on me for what exactly? In my last post I wrote

      “If you are struggling and blocked because of your race, then I’m here to help.

      What exactly are you held back from doing?”

      Are you saying I should be ashamed of helping? Do YOU need help with anything?

      Simply a suggestion moving forward in your life, but I think you would have better conversations if you left “Racist!” out of the conversation. It’s lazy. You can’t be sure if someone is racist and it is losing its meaning with overuse. You are actually hurting the cause. And I am fighting for the cause.

      Instead, even if you think the opponent is a real racist, still refrain and just debate the points of the topic. This is a better way to slowly change minds. And you won’t put your foot in your mouth by calling a guy of your own race a racist or make the mistake of mislabeling.

      Now…what exactly are you fighting for? I want to help. Where do you personally feel racism and how is it hindering your life?

      @stephen wedderburn And none of these trolls can spell or punctuate.

  2. Republican party should be classified as a hate group.

    • And the democratic party should be classified as a racist party. After all, history shows that.

    • Cadet Bone Spurs | July 31, 2020 at 1:51 AM | Reply

      @Shake KR1 They are NOT THE SAME!!! Corporate Dems take donor money and can be corrupt, but not nearly as often or to the extent that Republicans do and are!!! Also, Corporate Dems are not Fascist. Republicans under Trump are Fascist. Progressive Dems work for the people.

    • Ken Dodo I think what it shows is that it’s stupid to classify this as a partisan issue, when the fact is you should vote according to policy not party. The truth is, there are racists in both parties. No one person fits the full checklist of any party, and group identity politics is dangerous. We see that right now where elected officials sworn to represent their constituents and the US at large are going along with or keeping quiet about the unethical, racist, and decisive tactics just because Trump is in their party.

      Firstly, thanks for writing all of that out — a decent reply in my view.
      I have issues with “higher education”; fair to deduce that the issues are secondary to experience.
      I almost want to opt for calling it ‘further education’.
      Above, you wrote, “…. The Republicans have … over the ground.”
      Your statement is false.
      With absolute conviction to the truth of any given fact, the best you could possibly have asserted is:
      “Go Jamie, some Republicans have turned into fish out of water – Flip Flopping all over the ground.”

    • Jamtommy1
      Don Lemon has an outstanding criminal sexual complaint against him, and if/when he loses, he may be personae non grata at CNN.

    • @Up Stairs Higher education is a term, further education is also a term, both reference the same.- semantics
      Sorry should have said, “all republicans except J Amash and M Romney”

    • crispy
      Semantics??? I didn’t think so. The words are not synonymous. The former denotes a vertical approach: BA, MA, PH.D.; where the latter denotes distance. The latter could be degrees of eclecticism. I included the logic lesson: categorical propositions, for the sole purpose of introducing you to genuine meaning and the generation of same. Philosophy is your friend. Cheers.

Look at that black guy on TV who called for white genocide but when he talked bad about Jews he got fired. There’s way more than 10% of people in all these comments even the people watching CNN.

      @Tuli Domineaux Well, if I was too harsh, I would…as they said in that movie, Star Trek III, “ahh…forgive”! But, I still believe that if Gay folks read that comment, they would take that “nobody’s afraid” crack as calling them weak. But, I do believe your explanation, I simply misread it.

    • @keptyeti
      Wake Up, Graham’s district is SC which like all Repub states are like Trump, racist and homophobic. If Graham came out he would be voted out, castigated and maybe even hung by the conservative sickos!

    • @Fiya Ball No Graham has never said it, but he sure looks suspects at times. And if he is, that’s cool. The problem is being in denial about it, and voting against the best interest of the Gay community.

    • @Dwahn Denson A public hanging would be fitting for those filthy traitors !

Tell all Democrats to clean up their oppressed cities that they
      have kept that way purposely n or I would think after 40 years all of you would have it cleaned up… ya think.
      At least livable.

      Your not supposed to be doing that. It’s racist and against the law. Just like not prosecuting gun violence and babies getting shot just for your political agenda. I am sure that’s against the law.

    The second one with Jaime Harrisson is not darkening the skin tone. He’s in the background and is darkened for visual hierarchy. It happens all the time in graphic design. Background items are often shaded (meaning black is added to the image) to make the visual hierarchy come forward to the main image. It’s not racist. The Jewish nose thing… that’s legit racist. An accident they say… yeah right.. as a graphic designer I have darkened background images 100 times, but I can tell you, there is no way to “accidentally” change the shape of a person’s nose in Photoshop. You have to do that intentionally.
