You tried that on another thread recently. Comparing Prince to Trump was your opinion and you got blowback.

This is someting Prince actually did and spoke about, fact.

This is great. I need to see the whole thing as well. I heart Ava Duverney and her work.

yes i made a valid but snarky comparison between them... but still if we bring in Prince on this issue I could escalate quickly...but I am finished so any further yap will be ignored.

Anyone for banning the AR15 must be on the side of the criminal as once banned only criminals will have them.

Gheeezus. Now I'm rethinking it. I love documentaries and historical programs, but the racism shit just makes my fucking skin crawl. I know it should be seen by everyone probably, but ...maybe I'm getting tired of being angry. I'm tired of racist vitriol in 2018 from what is supposed to be an advanced society. This is why I'm an anarchist. The system flat out doesn't work. It never has.

This experience will cover courtship, sex, commitment, fetishes, loneliness, vindication, love, and hate.

Farrakhan is an insane old asshole who preaches a lot of stupidity and nonsense.
But, as you correctly pointed out, he has absolutely no power to do anything besides insulting people. He's not putting anyone in jail, he's not refusing people housing or denying them loans, he's not deliberately poisoning anyone's neighborhood, or making sure they get second rate schools....

It's worth watching, as an examination of how the system is rigged, and how certain people are targeted, as a way to facilitate the prison industrial complex

He was always a maniac. Now he's just old and probably half senile.

Many years ago Mike Wallace did a report on the Nation of Islam. The title : "The Hate that Hatred Has Produced ".

Liberal mags. I don't like how they use sources "close to the situation" or according to our sources. Those stories are suspect.



You asked for the facts, and I gave you the facts...




I will take your facts one by one and show they are myths.



Still waiting....

That was the pre-Mecca Malcolm X, who was still consumed by racial hatred and had yet to expand his consciousness

That never happened though did it? But what actually did happen in America history was lynching, murder, and domestic terrorism towards many in the Black community. All documented facts and events of American history, from slavery, Black codes/Jim Crow era to present-day racist crimes, against many members of the Black community, by racists.

Yes, I was happy to see that Ava focused on the ’prison for profit’, system-America's updated version of slavery exposed in that documentary. It’s not even really new to be honest. The upgrade of slavery has been happening since the early days of American slavery, in various ways. Some of us have been discussing the prison-for-profit system, since the early 2000s on this forum.

Farrakhan may have jumped the terrorism shark this time. Is the FBI looking into this?

What terrorism shark 2freak? I am not a fan or follower of Farrakhan. I just watched that vid that Only posted to see if Farrakhan actually said those words. Farrakhan did not say to go out and kill White folks. He did say go out and “
kill those who kill us.” He never said ‘White people.’ I believe if he actually said those words, there would have been a lot of media attention on it. And you know if that was to happen every law enforcement agency would be out ready to arrest or shoot anyone who tried to do that.

He also made reference to the white guy who murdered 9 Blacks in the church,and how that guy was treated to a hamburger by cops, when he was captured.

Lovely speech from the grim reaper.

Is it possible the US in general won't hire him? That would be refreshing. France, and then Rome a few months ago...

Here's another story- a few years back I needed a new suit. My mother agreed to buy it for me as a gift, and since she wanted to pay for it using her credit card, she came with me to the store (it was a men's chain that has thankfully gone out of business). We bought the suit, and afterward my mother asked if I wanted to buy anything else in the store. So while we were browsing, everywhere we walked, this clerk was next to us. He NEVER asked if we wanted help, or said anything. He was just... THERE...every section of the store we walked to. Finally, I said, I didn't want anything else and let's get out of here. I'm sure there are MANY shoplifting teams that consists of a 40 year old man in a suit and a 75 year old woman... hmmm


Of course, I fully expect I'll get some stating that maybe I was just imagining that we were being profiled...Or that we're just "playing the victim/race card"...

....and it's mostly folks on the right with that attitude. We're supposed to be "good negroes", bend over and accept second-class treatment.
