    Cofccy dear, you need to stick to concepts if you want to play your little boy binary game. When you post part of a quote without knowing what the rest said, it makes you look dumb.

    His point is and was that black perps will get the heavy hand of justice, because they always do. So no one needs to fight for their victims, the law does it automatically. The similar white perps, however, often slip back into society with their guns intact. It is their victims that often need the help because the the law looks away.

    No, the tweet included a link to his article. But I'm assuming you didn't actually see the tweet, just a retweeted version of it that ruffled your feathers.

    And yet you still posted something that did not include his link which clarified his position to be not at all what you inferred. Because that would require some sort of integrity. Or even sense wouldn't do.

    Only a shortened version of the tweet, without the critical part. And if you saw the tweet, you knew that. Or you just pulled on your outrage pants too quickly.

    The point Rok and Summer are both missing, is the racism involved. You two are basically saying "they will be punished, but the racism is ok because they are black and will be punished for the other stuff." Well, it isn't ok, and the racism against white people, especially men, is out of control and needs to be stopped before all hell breaks loose, and it will.

    No dear, the point YOU are missing is that we are both saying they will be punished for everything because they are black. They always are. What racism is there against white men in particular? Do you have less access to justice, decent education, medicine, powerful positions, anything except poverty and ignorant opinions?

    I watched the video, I believe there are two of them where the victim is abused, humiliated, and called racial slurs. The victim was targetted because of his race, his white race.

    How do we move forward? Black Lives Matter spoke out against the torture and said that no one should behave like the perpetrators, violence against any innocent person is appalling. I was disgusted by that video as I'm disgusted by unarmed suspects killed by police, I get disgusted by ISIS videos and any brutal act.

    How to move forward?

    Cofc took a writer out of context in an effort to stir emotions against black lives matter, making it seem like they were supporting the violence, they were not.

    In a similar light, Rush Limbo after the Dillan Roof killings in a black church, said two things. Limbo said he would like to wait for all the facts. Out of context it would seem that Rush Limbo was denying the racism of Dillan Roof. But, Rush Limbo also immediately stated that the violence in the black church was a horrendous act. The point is, writers and commentors shouldn't be taken out of context in order to fill one's own agenda.

    You intentionally took an author's view on an incident out of context to support an agenda.

    No, silly. Even if you can't read a tweet in full, at least read it properly. He said he wouldn't FIGHT for justice (because no one needs to fight to get black perps dealt with, the law does that, hard and fast). There is a big difference. It's a bit like me saying I won't join a rally for the defense of a billionaire in the justice system. He can deal with that himself, with masses of expensive lawyers. And usually come out on top, with at least a minimized sentence, if any at all. That doesn't mean I don't think he should get proper justice, just that I don't need to help him.

    And the guy was right. They got charged very quickly indeed. They will see justice as well. Probably a much harsher version than John Howard got. How would you like it if the ring leader in Chicago got probation?

    I know, and he said that prior to them being charged. He has never done that before.

    He is white, and very racist.

    How to know when cofc admits defeat: He modifies a quote and posts it.

    Apparently you do too, you're the one with a collection of Obama photos smiling. Each time you post one it's different, you must keep like hundreds. Not to mention you following Black Lives Matter and Shaun King's twitter feed for timely updates. You're obsessed with black people.

    - I didn't know who Shaun King was until cofc posted his tweet.

    I finally got an opportunity, I have been watching other people play it for so long. I'm going to use the **** out of it too! If my cheese isn't melted on my quarter pounder with cheese, it's because I'm white and the black cooks at McDonald's are racist.

    With their lack of healthcare and cuts to the FDA, melted cheese should be the least of your worries.

    Not my fault they decided to make a career of fast food instead of doing something with their lives, they want 15 per hour and can't melt cheese?

    well I see racism in the US a big game on the people. The first big merchants and royalties (white) brought slaves. They did all the bad thing and made it okay to treat slaves that way. then they allow people to own slaves. After that they ban slavery. Then the regular white who did what the elitist did before -which was according to the elitist law is okay to do- is called racist. however those big guys stay at their mansions -without being directly called racist- and still collect money and "enslave other people" legally by letting them do work for less money

    Slavery has been changed in a way that elitist got most people in the club while they think that they are free!

    I thought the microwave cooks everything at McDonald's... order in couple seconds, pay in couple seconds and then get your meal in couple seconds. maybe they put your cheese after microwaving the whole sandwich without it.

    An 85 year old women shouldn't need to buy insurance.
