    That also would not make the sharing of particular statistics racist. Just because one person believes another is pushing statistics for racist reasons does not make it so.

    The important point, I think, is that sharing statistics can be done as part of a racist agenda or to promote racist ideas. So, while statistics themselves are not racist, and while sharing statistics is not an inherently racist thing to do, it is disingenuous at best to imply that one cannot be pushing racist ideas when sharing statistics. :dunno:

    You didnt mention black people, so i guess its ok for you to say that stuff. You better not mention black people though, or ill call you a racist sooo hard.

    True. But that does not change the fact that liberals will make that call, and then shut down any real discuss on the topic in question, with race baiting and personal attacks.



    No, the important point is, that knee jerk accusations of racism, often shut down real discussion on important issues.

    Also, I have not claimed that sharing statistics cannot be used to push racist ideas, to be clear.


    I've simply asked questions on how one can tell when that is being done, as opposed to using them for potentially productive discussion.

    That's a question each individual has to determine in context, as with all questions about another person's intent.

    No, that is a problem that society as a whole needs to confront and solve, because the inability to seriously and honestly even DISCUSS many problems, is literally killing people and tearing this nation apart.

    Trump may be a narcissistic asshat, but that doesn't mean everyone who voted for him is a racist. :lol:

    Yeah, it kind of does. They had an opportunity to reject his racism, and they didn't.
