    I was looking for a place to put this so we could discuss but didn't really find a place that worked so I created this thread so we can all place articles, experiences, videos and examples of racism in the USA.

    This is one that happened this week. The lady even called and filed a complaint on the officer. This officer also chose to wear the body cam (apparently, LA doesn't require this yet). This exchange wasn't necessarily racist IMO until she started with the "mexican racist...you will never be white, like you want" garbage. That is when it turned racist IMO

    All the murderer and other insults, I think are just a by product of CRT and ACAB rhetoric that is very common on the radical left and sadly is being brought to mainstream in this country.

    Another point that I think is worth mentioning is she is a teacher and the sense of entitlement she feels is mind blowing.

    Because we have created a society that coddles people who cannot and will not take personal responsibility for their own actions. We have also managed (not by accident but intentionally) to remove the family unit as the primary foundation of our society.

    Where those drugs illegal, regardless who was going to use them? Then yes, they are were they need to be.

    Do you support the death penalty?

    Why does apostate, and coddled Europe have lower crime, and incarceration rates? Shouldn't they be worse off then America?

    Have you seen what a Nordic jail looks like? Why do they have jails that look nicer then a Holiday Inn, and the lowest recidivism rates in the world?

    If trust, respect, love, empathy and inclusion (whatever other mushy mealy mouth words you want to use) were our (human) default position/emotions, we never would have made it out of the caves. We are hardwired for survival. Yes, feeling will get hurt because of this, but did you die?

    This is one of the worst takes on anything I’ve ever heard

    ”We should have more love and empathy for people”

    Farb - “Quit being a birch! It’s survival of the fittest and hardest!”

    His opinion is based on the Nazification of Darwin's theory of evolution.

    Darwin clearly defined "fittest" as highly and quickly adaptive, not biggest and strongest. The Nazi's twisted what Darwin actually said to justify the mass murder of "unfit, subhumans" as the natural order of life, the fit must kill off the unfit for a species to thrive.

    Civilization doesn't exist without a fundamental impulse to work together for the betterment and survival for all.

    I've read, and believe, that the overwhelming majority of humans are biologically hardwired to be empathetic, share, and cooperate, because that gives human beings the best chance at individual survival and, more importantly, individual thriving.

    The problem is that a small percentage of humans are born without the capability of being empathetic towards others. When those children are unidentified, they are not taught and nurtured in the unique way they need to be taught and raised in order to be constructive members of society. We instinctively teach and nurture our young by appealing toward their empathy. When a child doesn't have empathy, the empathy based approach doesn't work and those children without empathy usually grow up to be destructive members of society.

    As any of us who have experienced a playground knows, it only takes one troublesome child to disrupt harmony and peaceful coexistence for everyone else. That's the plague of human history so far. A small, but impactful, percentage of people ruthlessly rise to the top of society and then wreak havoc on everyone from those positions of power.

    Any one of us could be a billionaire, if we are ruthless enough to do whatever we have to do to earn billions. Any one of us could be a cult leader or dictator, if we are ruthless enough to do whatever it takes to rise to power. Currently, the world's financial, political and other public leaders are collectively more ruthless than the rest of us are.

    Being more ruthless than the rest of us are is a bigger factor of their success, than is being more intelligent or talented than the rest of us. The greatest con they've pulled on the rest of us is fooling us into believing they are smarter, more talented and generally more "stronger and more fit" than the rest of us, so they "naturally" "deserve" what they have and the rest of us should be grateful for what they let us have, because the rest of us don't deserve anything and are nothing more than pests and parasites.

    Here it is. The guy who is corrupting the Supreme Court, is marching on the next step to destroy all efforts to level the playing field. This is contemptible. They want to control everything, which they already do. Not content with this advantage they want to destroy a private organization trying to help minority businesses.

    The hilarious thing is it seems wrong on it's face. We know humans spent a long time in some kind of hunter/gather tribal mode. It wasn't until we chilled enough to work together that we made it out of caveman mode.

    For anyone who has never read the theory about human's self domestication. It's interesting.

     
    Terrible. I can bet you that supervisor has walked by white girls with “unnatural” hair colors for them and never said a word.

    What a flocking idiot.

    The venture capital fund American Alliance for Equal Rights just needs to say that it goes against their religious teachings and beliefs to fund any businesses not owned by black women and then all will be right with the extremist, fascist Republicans and the Supreme Court.
     
    So, so many of these guys - it’s just crazy how many of these fairly young guys are just closet Nazis

     
    Arrogance thy name is Farb.

    First piece is an opinion piece, so moving on. Did you actually read the second piece? I’m curious.
    By his silence I will assume that Farb did not in fact read the second piece he quoted. What he says it says is not what it actually says. So just to set the record straight a couple of quotes from the second article that he posted. It is true that way back in 2010, due to severe budget cuts, half the Camden police were abruptly laid off. They did experience an increase in murders and violent crime by 2012, when they decided to take a different approach:

    “Despite stiff pressure from the union and an outspoken group of residents, the Camden Police Department was formally disbanded in 2013.

    The new force was led by the existing Camden police chief, Scott Thomson. He moved to remake the ethos of the department.

    "We were going to have all of our officers have the identity of guardians and not warriors," Thomson said in an interview.””

    Here is an example of something they had to adjust as they went with the new model of policing they were implementing.

    “But Camden's new force also courted controversy. Summonses skyrocketed for petty offenses, such as failing to maintain car lights, having tinted windows and riding bicycle without bells or lights. Advocate groups complained. Critical newspaper articles were published.

    Amid the backlash, Thomson took rapid steps to transform the department's approach to low-level offenses, said Alex Shalom, a senior attorney at the ACLU of New Jersey.

    "Under Chief Thomson, what they said is: 'Look, we're trying to police a poor community here where tickets can have a life-changing impact on people's very being, and so we want to be really circumspect about when we're issuing them,'" Shalom said. "That was a remarkable change in policy, and an important one."

    With the help of the New York University Policing Project, the Camden force went on to develop a body camera policy. And three years later, it adopted one of the nation's most comprehensive use-of-force policies, an 18-page document seen as a model for other departments. The policy was drafted with the help of the NYU Policing Project and vetted by the ACLU of New Jersey and the Fraternal Order of Police.

    By 2019, the number of homicides had dropped to 25, a decline of nearly 63 percent from 2012.””

    Today, Camden still enjoys a much lower crime rate. Neighborhoods where drug deals were so common that parents wouldn’t allow their children to play outside are now safe again. Camden didn’t see the violent rioting after the murder of George Floyd that other towns saw. The article makes the point that it’s not perfect. The racial makeup of the force still doesn’t accurately reflect the community. But the police administration has remained committed to a model of support for the community rather than a war-like footing for the police. When the chief first told the remaining officers that their job would resemble a peace corps worker more than Special Forces Operatives, there was a significant number who quit. The chief called that addition by subtraction.

    This post is far too long, but this is the type of positive change we should be hearing about. And it cannot be characterized in a cartoonishly simple way, like Farb evidently wants to do. It isn’t possible to have a nuanced discussion of any issue with the reductive way the right seems to want to view everything.
     
    um. did they forget being a slave had the same end result as the alternative, just a bit later than sooner? the average life expectancy of an American slave was like 22. at the time, for a white person it was 40. I wonder if they include that?
