Low IQ means you consider them to be beneath you and that is racism. But if you stereotype them as great athletes it’s not. If you stereotype Jews as a smart it’s not even if you stereotype Jews as poor athletes it’s not because it’s mostly true.I agree but stereotyping isn’t racismCall me what you like. I am an Ass. Racist? NFW. Chauvin is a dick but racist? Idk his wife was AsianOK give me one example of me being a racist via my posts.Anything’s possible.Is it possible he was a bad cop but not a racist?Prosecution did a good job of limiting the charges to what they knew they could prove. Maybe he didn't have a social media posting history or US Message board posting history, showing racist remarks. Does not mean it was or wasn't, but by sticking to the easily proved, it was a slam dunk. Over charging and under delivering will sometimes piss a jury off and mess up the whole outcome.If the murder of George Floyd was an example of systemic racism as most of the News Entertainment Media says then why wasn’t Derek Chauvin charged with a hate crime or violation of civil rights?
Is it possible that Chauvin was just a bad cop?
President Biden on Tuesday praised the conviction of former Minneapolis police officer Derek Chauvin for murdering George Floyd, but also accused the United States of deep-seated “systemi…www.google.com
It’s possible that you aren’t a racist asshole, but not likely given your posts
this user just accused me of being a racist. If you agree and can find posts to substantiate that claim please ban me forever.
How is that Lesh? Fair? I ll put my status on this site on the line. Find a post that shows I am a racist and I will be banned.
I don't think you are a racist, haven't seen it....you're just an ass sometimes
The problem is, like with so many of these discussions - once you start accusing each other of being racist (or any other ists) - the discussion degenerates rapidly into something resembling Jr. High.
So how about we all go back to this question - a good one.
"Is it possible he's a bad cop - not a racist"
Of course it is. But, I'll add - I haven't researched it, I don't know what his attitudes and such towards blacks are. I don't know what the complaints on him were about. He and Floyd apparently worked for a private security company at the same time. What were those interactions like? He is without question a bad cop. And there are without question bad cops who are also racist.
I think a lot of what is called racism is more subtle, subconscious. I am not sure it should be called racism. I see plenty of blatant racism on threads here. But what is more common are subtle things like what happened to Steven Locke.
Or the NYC woman who called in the complaint about the black bird watcher who told her to leash her dog, who maybe never thought of herself as a racist but had no clue what her false complaint could have led to.
Or...the white woman that confronted a black man in her very upper class urban neighborhood carefully painting a black lives matter sign on a stone wall in front of the house. It happened to be his house but she couldn't conceive of the idea a black person would live there.
It can be - it kind of depends on how you stereotype some is benign, some malign, some just offensive. It also depends on the intent behind it.
For example the stereotype that African Americans are low-IQ. It's a stereotype that is based in the pre-abolition arguments for justifying slavery, racial stratification, etc.
