In honor of the memory of George Floyd, those peddling social justice reform are advocating nonviolent criminal acts such as shoplifting from big box stores should no longer be a criminal offense. [Retailers urged to re-think police calls for low-level crimes after George Floyd’s death, Minneapolis Star-Tribune, April 12, 2021]:..................................................................................................................................................................................................................................
George Floyd died in police custody after a corner store clerk reported he had used a fake $20 bill, a nonviolent offense so low-level that police don’t usually take people to jail for it.

Now, as the trial over his death continues to unfold, criminal justice reform experts and diversity specialists are hoping the case will prompt retailers — from small businesses to major chains — to reassess how they treat Black and other minority customers and how they can handle loss prevention cases more equitably.

Retailers, they point out, are on the front lines of racial justice in their own stores...................................



Riots, arson, anarchism, assaults, lawlessness rewarded, neither lives nor property safe.....under Democrat governance.
One wonders why citizens pay taxes, and what they expect from government, when the above is the norm from Democrats officials.



Raleigh Police Chief Cassandra Deck-Brown has a particularly "odd" view of policing.
She isn't inclined to do it.


At 14:30 “I will not put an officer in harms way to protect the property….”




Chesa Boudin, the new DA elected by San Francisco:

“SAN FRANCISCO'S NEW DA WILL NOT PROSECUTE PROSTITUTION, PUBLIC URINATION CASES: 'WE MUST THINK DIFFERENTLY'
Responding to the ACLU questionnaire published in the San Francisco Chronicle before the election, Boudin said: "We will not prosecute cases involving quality-of-life crimes. Crimes such as public camping, offering or soliciting sex, public urination, blocking a sidewalk, etc., should not and will not be prosecuted."
San Francisco's new DA will not prosecute prostitution, public urination cases: "We must think differently"

This is what Democrats believe is the sort of city you should live in.



....one more slap in the face of the law-abiding citizens who pay taxes on actual earnings:

"Should All Thefts Be Prosecuted? Dallas County’s District Attorney Says No
An initiative by John Creuzot is stopping prosecutions for theft of personal items worth less than $750."
Should All Thefts Be Prosecuted? Dallas County’s District Attorney Says No | Houston Public Media

Same in Seattle.....Democrat constituent are given a quota amount they can steal from you.





Under Democrats, law and order has become the law of the jungle.
We had 4 years of lawlessness to the point of an insurrection by repubublicans. STFU.

Cost Of Racism: U.S. Economy Lost $16 Trillion Because Of Discrimination, Bank Says

Nationwide protests have cast a spotlight on racism and inequality in the United States. Now a major bank has put a price tag on how much the economy has lost as a result of discrimination against African Americans: $16 trillion.

Since 2000, U.S. gross domestic product lost that much as a result of discriminatory practices in a range of areas, including in education and access to business loans, according to a new study by Citigroup.

Specifically, the study came up with $16 trillion in lost GDP by noting four key racial gaps between African Americans and whites:

  1. $13 trillion lost in potential business revenue because of discriminatory lending to African American entrepreneurs, with an estimated 6.1 million jobs not generated as a result
  2. $2.7 trillion in income lost because of disparities in wages suffered by African Americans
  3. $218 billion lost over the past two decades because of discrimination in providing housing credit
  4. And $90 billion to $113 billion in lifetime income lost from discrimination in accessing higher education

Yeah, you really are, it's what racist would do when cornered.

It is already illegal to arrest or jail those folks for most crimes.

How many of them who have beaten up elderly Asians have been arrested, let alone punished?

They are now a very entitled group of people.

And soon taxpayers will be paying reparations to them.

That's a lie.

We are owed reparations as we have paid taxes that have gone to things that we got nothing from while whites gained wealth.

Ignorance is not bliss.

Become a better informed person.



Republicans pried the slaves away from your Democrats some eight generations ago.
The extent of your picking cotton has been from an aspirin bottle.


Can you name your great great great great great great great-granddaddy????



.....after Muhammad Ali had won his match against George Foreman in the "Rumble in the Jungle" fight in Africa, he was asked by a reporter what he thought of Africa. Ali responded, "Thank God my granddaddy got on that boat!"

My inadaquacies include a masters degree in sociology. I am holding whites responsible for what racism has caused and there is plenty of documentation that supports me. So fuck your townhall study.
But you are intentionally holding the wrong whites accountable.

Go back to LBJ, and all the elected Democrats since, both on the Federal and State and local levels, who have done all they can to destroy black families, to keep black men from taking responsibility for their families, for ensuring that blacks can't get an education and cannot participate in the American Dream.
This is a lie. Racism has been bi partisan. Yesterdays Dixiecrats are todays republicans. The shit you guys post every day is just straight disingenuous. I know why blacks left the republican party after 100 years and it was because the party started openly pandering to racists and now today, we are looking at the "Amercan First" types who dominate your party.

You have presented nothing but false racist stereotypes.

How did you accomplish that with all the racism in this country? Maybe one day you can crawl out from under all that oppression, maybe.

And so my degree is supposed to mean no racism exists? I could not get a jod and had to form a NFP with a friend in order to use my degree. And because of that, I had to work a second job at a fast food place to help fund the business. Meanwhile I watched white kids in the same major get good paying jobs after graduation. So maybe on day you can get the proper medical assistance needed to fix your psychosis.

Radio host Dennis Prager said that he'd be in the car with his grandfather driving, and that anytime another driver cut him off, the grandfather would shout that the driver was an 'anti-Semite!!!'

Prager is Jewish.

You appear to have something in common with Prager's granddaddy.

I have a newsflash for store owners: they stop calling the cops for crimes, I stop shopping there. Period.

Whites pay taxes too and we earn wealth and gain. Gain isn't supplied to us when we turn 21. You have every opportunity to gain the same wealth by hard work.
Yours and my taxes aren't distinguishable to Bernie Sanders who manages our money now. It all looks the same to the government. It isn't yours or mine. It is theirs...

I don't own slaves and you don't pick cotton, so take control of your children and make sure that they excel. Use Tiger Wood's father as a role model, so they can work hard and gain wealth.

And keep in mind that Trump put you to work. Biden wants you back on the stoop. You should be offended at the concept that you can't make it on your own.

He was also asked how he felt about being an Olympic Gold Medal winner and not being able to eat in certain restaurants....... His response, "at least I don't live in a grass hut and have to eat Alligator."

Don't leave out the first line......


" In 1960, when a Soviet Union reporter asked him about being a second-class citizen in America at the Rome Olympics, he said the following, comparing America and Africa:



“To me, the U.S.A. is still the best country in the world, counting yours. It may be hard to eat sometimes, but anyhow I ain’t fighting alligators and living in a mud hut.”

... after his return to the United States, Ali reportedly said “Thank God my granddaddy got on that boat” after a reporter asked, “Champ, what did you think of Africa?”

Muhammad Ali thought Africa was a jungle... until he visited - Face2Face Africa

Masters degree eh?

One day you'll be able to put that degree to good use. I would wager you learned most of your hate earning that degree.

Wrong. Blacks cannot create a rise in racism unless you choose to be a racist. White racism is the cause of our discontent, so perhaps you white racists grow the fuck up and take responsibility for your actions.

.....as you blame white folks and racism for all of your inadequacies, can you answer this query?



With respect to the education gap, how is it that 'racism' is responsible for these areas in which black students fall short when compared to white and Asian students:

The number of days absent from school

The number of hours spent watching TV

The number of pages read for homework

Quantity and quality of reading material in the home

The presence of two parents in the home.

How does 'racism' explain these ...deficiencies????

How are white folks responsible???
My inadaquacies include a masters degree in sociology. I am holding whites responsible for what racism has caused and there is plenty of documentation that supports me. So fuck your townhall study.

Regardless of the poster's views, he should be congratulated on holding a master's degree.

Not many Americans of any ethnicity can say that.

I have only a puny B.A. issued in 1959.

Did it occur to you that maybe it was your personality holding you back rather than your skin color? And puhleeze, most small business owners I know, myself included, had to have other work to help fund their start ups.

Emigrate then.

Meanwhile, blacks keep coming to America from Africa and elsewhere.

The problem is you.

When a B.A. was a B.A.

And more Master's degrees than ever get handed out nowadays.

Between 2000–01 and 2017–18, the number of master’s degrees conferred increased by 73 percent, from 474,000 to 820,000 degrees.

It's time to come back to conservative values for family and work. Conservatives want to make sure that all Americans have the opportunity to work hard and get ahead. Conservatives are more akin to Martin Luther King than you are.

Yeah; Even Joe Biden's concubine-turned-wife has a doctorate... go figure. Most scholars who read her thesis report that the work was so bad she should never have gotten her doctorate.

"It's time to come back to conservative values for family and work."

‘tis a consummation
Devoutly to be wished.
The Bard



But the same folks who kept slaves, and are racists to this day, will not allow black people to leave the plantation.


Perhaps you saw the Smithsonian display telling blacks what they must NOT do:


“The chart endeavors to list "the ways white people and their traditions, attitudes and ways of life have been normalized over time and are now considered standard practices in the United States." Among those traditions, attitudes, and ways of life are: Individualism, hard work, objectivity, the nuclear family, a belief in progress, a written tradition, politeness, the justice system, respect for authority, delayed gratification and planning for the future, plus much more.” Smithsonian Goes Full Marxist: Nuclear Family, Science, Christianity All Part of Oppressive 'Whiteness'




The Democrat cannot allow black success.


“The white liberal is the worst enemy to America, and the worst enemy to the black man."

That's a load of crap. The social justice folks and the white guilt monkeys that bow to them determine who is or isn't 'racist'. Disagree with an idiotic liberal policy? Racist. Don't vote for an unqualified junior Senator. Racist.
