Just because I am
white doesn't mean I can't or don't understand where you're coming from. Furthermore, just blanket labeling most of the board as "white" fails to take into account that that there is a sizable portion of the people who post here that aren't even American. I mean for God's sake we've got Poles
who post here.
It was, actually. The sentence verbatim was "Do you also want to take away racists' 8th Amendment rights so that they can be hanged, drawn, and quartered?"
"Depends on the crimes they committed."
That is a very
vague answer, and it's that vagueness that escalated the situation even further. You don't take away someone's 8th amendment rights at all, or even insinuate it. That it's happened to PoC in the past is an even greater reason for it to not be taken away in any way now. If you want a truly cynical answer as to why some white Americans would support equal rights for minorities even though the system would benefit them, is that they realize that if that treatment could be done to blacks, it could be done to anyone. >I don't think racists should be tortured, btw.
That's good! You also never said that after the exchange I showed.
see how as a mod I'm looking in and seeing what looks like someone who just wants to fight?
