    We have a serious problem in this country. The blame falls upon almost everyone.

    Yeah, well the blacks will never let that slavery thing go. It will tear at this country for as long as it exists. They have a point though, no other race was ever enslaved since the beginning of man kind.

    How about social media which only makes it easier for the craziest people to find each other, stir up more shit, start rumors, and of course, refuse to listen to what the other side has to say?

    All the while, Silicon Valley bros profit from division.

    People gotta hate. Its human nature.
    Much easier to hate people who are less like us and more distant.

    Race Baiters bring race into every discussion. No question on this. It has become a crutch for the politically weak minded.

    I hate everyone for a wide variety of reasons. An old brownish type woman was in line in front of me at a bodega. She waited until the guy asked for money to start fumbling through her purse and acting like a retard. As if it was a surprise that she would have to pay. Spent even more time dicking around and trying to put her change back in the purse, holding up the line. It was a whole production. I wanted to strangle her regardless of the color of her skin. All people are shitheads.

    Bullshit! Mostly driven by political divide. Easy way to sort it out. Let's seriously consider splitting the country by liberals and conservatives. We can share the cost of national defense and most infrastructure but each can be governed under their policies and core beliefs. This will show the true colors of all the hustlers. Let's see where George Clooney, Matt Damon, etc. choose to live and lets see how the African American populations due under each set of beliefs. Most of the people pushing the race issue don't belive in what they say. It is a way to pander to a down and out group and put themselves in a position they desire.

    Well, they beat the common sense out of poor Rodney.
    So the answer is NO!

    Don't forget legalized segregation, denial of voting rights, and that whole "black people are less than human" thing (I think asshole racists on this site call it mudsharking?).

    They need to stop being so sensitive!

    I don't really think there are that many racists. The race husksters, baiters, and victimhood cultists have set the bar so low for what a racist is they get "triggered" just by seeing a white face.

    Plenty of blame for all sides and I would say the media deserves a ton of blame as well. Who play up alot of this for ratings and are always looking to fan flames by putting the worse of the worse most biased people on to "discuss" the issues of the day.

    Its a never ending cycle that I see no end to.

    but there are a lot

    I just do my own thing

    Race wouldn't be an issue if it wasn't big business for a certain side of the aisle..
