Yes we should deport them to the black country they all come from.

It'd be even better if some of them got enslaved in Africa.

I hear you've never seen Omacron sporting tight leather pantaloons, because that's basically the definition of sexy.

I would do Tony from The Sopranos but its as depressing as it is funny. D: Need more HBO-level cinematic television with high production values, profanity, nudity, comedy and tragedy. Its completely bonkers to me that standard American television producers feel far more comfortable showing violence to audiences than a boob or the word 'fuck.' I'm all for watching cinematic guts and gore, but if there show's universe is else-wise so self-censored to the point of disbelief - so it can be hard to be truly invested in the drama. Its why TV soaps are so boring.

Market sponsorship is a bad way to fund television programmes anyway - the director's art becomes beholden to advertising and corporate meddling. Thank you public television (Aunty Beeb) <3

Watch the video in the provided link and see for yourself.

Is "black power" now synonymous with "kill white people" or do we not need to "open a dialogue" about this as our liberal friends like to say?
Copy/pasting from the SJW thread because this is actually relevant to American politics.

Obama's America, for real. If there's a race war in this country we already know who fired the first shot.

Me: Pages of Implicit Bias studies and incidents where cops kill people and aren't held accountable.


Others: Eh, isolated incidents.


Also others: OH GOOD LOOK AT THIS SYSTEMIC RACIAL WAR BEING PROPAGATED BY BLM

I still think social pressure is very easy to abuse. It's also not impartial, and tends to target those who are disliked. Similarly, this makes it easier for those who are liked to cover up their abuses. The law must be there to limit the form social pressure can take (and I suspect you'd agree with this).

Your last paragraph interested me, since I'm of the opinion that we do not live in tolerant times. There have never been truly tolerant times, because there is always behavior that is beyond the pale. A society that tolerated everything would simply cease to exist.

As an example, there were times and places in the United States in which the Klan was socially tolerated (openly encouraged). The Klan is now roundly condemned by all but a few degenerates. However, condemning the Klan is a form of intolerance. It's a good form, and one that I welcome and heartily encourage.

Currently, the goal seems to be focus intolerance against groups and individuals who are intolerant of others on the basis of intrinsic characteristics--race and sexual orientation being the most obvious. I'm pretty much okay with this.

Intolerance is form of social pressure. As I've said elsewhere, I also absolutely believe that hate groups have the right to say what they please and be protected from violence, though it does not also follow that they must be protected from societal opprobrium (as that would effectively be the government monitoring and enforcing the opinions of people--I am under no obligation to like or hire a neo-Nazi).

In regards to doxxing and the like, I would say that people must remember that the Internet is a public space, not a safe space.

What I don't like, however, is the carelessness in which social pressure is sometimes used. This is hardly something unique to our time, but it does show why I'm very keen on law taking precedence over social norms.
That's the main thing. Social pressure is different when it is people you know applying it verse people you don't.

The KKK was only able to exist in the south as it because of the state of south prior to the Civil War and after leading up to the Civil Rights Movement. That is, the slave owning class (which was small) destroying the lives of basically everyone in the South so they could continue to use slaves and then the freeing of the slaves causing the lower class to not want to sink lower. Of course, the middle class and upper class got in on it too, but I don't know if any study has been done of slave owners compared to members of the KKK, which would be hard to prove.

It's different, but I'm more skeptical of it than you are. Kids put a lot of social pressure on me back in elementary and middle school. They succeeded, more or less, but it left me somewhat distrustful.

The Klan was started by some Confederate veterans, who mostly wanted to create a social club. But it grew over time, and more and more people used the masks as a means to sow terror. They intimidated, assaulted, and murdered blacks and non-blacks who sympathized with them. They spread well beyond the South in later decades. I stand by my description of the Klan as a degenerate organization.

They use violence and the fear of it for political gains. By definition, it's terrorism

Yet people seem reluctant to use the term when describing white on black hate crimes.

Yeah? Show me the last time one of those groups shut down a bridge.

Or targeted people by race in a riot?

Because they do exist, sure..

The difference is, as a culture we try and shun that shit. Not praise the killings and laud the perpetrators as matyrs.

I assume many in BLM are good people trying to do what they feel is right. I assume most are.

I also think mob mentality is a dangerous thing 2hen could with violent rhetoric

Dude, you realize black-on-white crime is like a billion times higher than the reverse? White-on-black crime (in general) is already so tiny that white-on-black hate crimes are usually so rare that the ones that do (rarely) happen often get a massive amount of media attention. Meanwhile, most common black-on-white crime is racially motivated. Do I even need to post the infographs that have all the sources at the bottom, like I have a dozen times in the past?

Not to mention, the cop that shot the armed criminal in Milwaukee was black. Those black people are trying to attack white people for the actions of a black cop.

Yet despite all that, we still have retards like you and Mutter defending this shit.

Pretty sure I've said that rioting is dumb, but to call the entire group a terrorist organization is dumb.

Also white people don't have to do the same exact things as blacks to be considered terrorists, considering how we don't have BLM suicide bombers or beheading.

But someone's just going to ignore what I say and call me some slur so meh.
