and on the other hand you have the media, carefully watching you for any damn little thing they could extract juicy scandal from

they don't give a shit if they spread false rumors or ruin people's lifes, all they care about is making their audience as large as possible to get a lot of money

isn't capitalism wonderful!

Finally, somebody who understood it!
Indeed, the (Mainstream) Media doesn't care about facts, as long as they get paid.

it's not all misinformation or similar crap, though

you just have to take what they say with a grain of salt



it's like in France, I always hear about that economic crisis crap

but

a crisis is something exceptional

why call it that if it's always here??

part of me thinks it's something they make up because it sells more than saying that everything is allright

I find it funny actually. I remember when Bernie Sanders went to one state to campaign, he was very politically correct, so much that he would say "African American" each time he wanted to say "Black". Well, after a few times of saying the same word to describe the people, one guy shouted "WHY DON'T YOU SAY 'BLACK'?" Kind of a funny thing, even people you are trying to be delicate towards want you to stop being like that!

he also was asked by anderson cooper "Is it All Lives Matter, or Black Lives Matter?"
he responded with "BLACK LIVES MATTER!!11!1!!111!"
the guy isn't even black. Does his life not matter?

It's funny how calling them "African American" or "Afro-American" is even more Racist, than just calling them "black".
I mean, is there a word for "white" people? European Americans? Euro-Americans? Nope!

Besides, now all ethnic Africans are black, just look at the Northern Region, where people are brown.
Even look at South-Africa, where half of its population is white!

can we just stick to one slang term. we went through colored, negro, black, and it stands to reason that we're going to go through african-american at some point.

can we not call the same group of people something different every 20 years


send me your terrible userbars and such to advertize in my footer ;^)

'colored' is bullshit, as if white was somehow 'uncolored'

'negro' is pretty much racist

77% of the Russian population is in the European side of Europe so I guess it still counts.

Most of the population is white. It's like saying Indian people are not brown cause there's some Chinese people there.

.....why/what started this racism

I was really only calling the topic racist...not the group talking about it maybe you should have read more in between the lines but besides I'm sorry if I offended you

EDIT: I see how you could have seen me calling you a racist....apologies

Which is like comparing apples with pears, "Chinese" is a nationality, not a race.
Besides, I didn't say Russians aren't white, I said native Russians aren't white.
Pretty much like American vs native American.

Technically, they're both native. But I do get your point.

the topic isn't racist at all

it wouldn't offend anyone, I'm pretty sure. People seem to be twisting the term 'racist' lately, probably because PC crap. But uh, no, racist is when you think you are better than someone because of your race or you think you are inferior to another race.

this may come of as racist, but Black Lives Matter is a racist group. They also want to burn cops, and stuff, which pretty much is #1 sign that they're full of shit

I don't really like the idea of Black history month. While no one should trivialize the horrors of racism, I don't see any sort of Chinese or Native American history month and they suffered a lot from racism. Probably not to the same systematic horror that lead to a civil war, but still something no one should ever have to go through.

No, I think it's important to remember racism in the past, and that it happened, i'd attribute a day, but not a month. The holocaust has a day and 6 million people died there and it happened 70 years ago.

That also reminds me, we get a ton of coverage on the Holocaust, but I'd like to see some more publicity on the Rwandan genocide.

Also, people don't realize how terrible the Gulags were run by that idiot Stalin. It also killed 20 million people, yet if you say 'gulag' people will respond with a confused look on their face
