If you'd read the story you'd know there are concerns with it regarding Harvey as well

Sub-Chicago and America’s Real Crime Rate

It looks like the increase in America's homicide rate has continued. A lot of anti-cop groups and mayors are to blame. Another notable fact is that 2% of all counties are responsible for 51% of all US murders.

Take a guess who is in charge of those counties...

1. Where'd you see that in the article?
Who are they? What're they doing?

2. The people arguing for gun control?

Okay now that is pretty concerning, I definitely don't trust anyone who likes Jim Crow era voter laws

It there had been white looting it would have been on the news and posted here. It has not been.

I think that's a hyperbolic claim, not every good/bad thing that happens on the news is posted here

Edit: and that's ignoring the fact that not everything that happens gets on the news

Do you have proof that there was white looting? Or even Hispanic looting? All I saw was black looting. I'm happy to be wrong but I don't think I am.

Are you trying to claim that in a state containing over twenty million people that looting/scavenging in the wake of the hurricane would be divided along racial lines?

Speaking of inflammatory: anime is absolute garbage, and it saddens me immensely to know that when I see Japanese words intertwined with our language it is because of subpar animated programming.

Getty also stuck by its description to use “finding.” In a blog post days later, Graythen further explained his reasoning.

“These people were not ducking into a store and busting down windows to get electronics. They picked up bread and cokes that were floating in the water. They would have floated away anyhow.”
Journalists should be clear on the context they post for certain descriptions, to avoid situations such as this.

Kak posted links to white looting being reported as looting, so hopefully we'll have no issue.

I don't see what mankind needs equality for. The wild is certainly not filled with equality. And since we live in different environments we should end up significantly different.

1. Huh?

2. Hopefully it leads to more equality in the handling of reporting and whatnot.

Social stability and improved quality of life, basic morality, etc...

Humans are not the same as animals.

You'll have to elaborate because just because I live in Texas and someone else lives in New York or Canada doesn't seem like a compelling reason for us to have different rights.

I believe in equality before the law.

Probably the only kind of equality that is truly achievable. As long as one does not mean equality before the same law.

Things like Sharia and Jim Crowe would violate that principal. Disparities in income or criminal convictions would not. Equal doesn't mean equal in arbitrarily defined groups or parameters. That is just a weird mental gymnastics game because it will never be truly defined.

Yet we're still incredibly far from it according to the studies I linked earlier and right-wingers insist it's not a problem. Why is that?

You are right. I too am outraged that this thread has had it's name changed. It should be returned to its original name.

"The Social Justice Terrorist Thread"


EDIT: Damn beaten by Marthen

Like, I don't know if you're joking or not but this is ridiculous either way

It'd be like me saying

"I guess you can only really consider things fair when you call people you disagree with terrorists then?"

The old name was indicative of the jackassery that'd kind of taken over the forum and the name prior to the Nindo one was about as bad imo

While this is probably better than sending folks to jjail, it's another factor in my concerns about equality under the law

Remember that Seattle Mayor that was so progressive for raising the cities minimum wage to $15 an hour? That when a study was coming out to shed some bad light on the negative impacts of the policy he coordinated with Berkeley to produce a good study? Showed how scientific those studies really were.

He just resigned because he kept being accused of molestation.

Seattle Mayor to Resign Amid Sex Abuse Claims from Vet, Accusers

He wasn't much of a hero because he decided raising the minimum wage was a pure benefit with no drawbacks. He was a liar and a sexual deviant. I wonder how many people will hold up Seattle as some kind of utopia that the rest of the country should strive to be.
