No, not all Black Conservatives are Uncle Toms. Colin Powell, Condoleezza Rice, or Allen Keyes and many others could not possibly be called that. However, watching Tim Scott's career moves looks like an old school Steppin Fetchit (look it up kids) act.

suspected arborist??

"noun

Yet another in a long line of zee's illiterate posts.

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

This CCP topic, and the purpose of the BLM movement, is about real and perceived excessive use of police force against black Americans and the accusation that it is driven by racism.

I deal in facts, only. The facts show that black male Americans commit murder at the highest demographic rate per capita (both race and per capita play big roles here, you can't wish them away). That plays a huge role in police interactions with black male Americans, as President Obama acknowledged in the same interview I quoted above.

But yeah, just cry "racist" and move on. There's no point thinking about things or discussing them when you are a member of the tolerant left.

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

No, you are dense as well as racist.

Per capita is irrelevant to the point I was making.

I wasn't making a point on interracial violence. Your cries of 'black on black' violence are unfounded and irrelevant because crime is overwhelming committed within ethnic groups, as I pointed out with data.

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

Oh, black and white aren't part of your considerations? Your color-blindness is admirable. So what does the B in BLM stand for?

Per Capita is irrelevant? Police kill more white people than blacks. So, no problem then. Please let America know.

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

I'm not comparing white to black, so per capita is irrelevant.

Violent crime is overwhelmingly committed against our own ethnic groups.

Your google topic is 'reading comprehension.'

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

Look! There were 10 murders in North Charleston and in Japan so far this year. So, they are equal.

Per capita is your Google topic of the day, Lee.

Combine your UCR link with US Census data.

1st, Only a pathetic looser would think such a lame ass game is ooooh sooo cool and amazing.

2nd, as far as local businesses giving 10% off with Pokeman as the code, well I usually get 20% and more off via the codes they mail via snail mail or email.

Re: “Giant oak falls inside College of Charleston Cistern Yard

Cofc is not harboring any suspected arborists is it?

I like how cofc had staged protests to protect these trees.... Happened in the middle of the night did it? It must have been that damned Snowball from animal farm. We cannot let the arborists win!

The irony alone is hilarious even without my stupid comments! Maybe we could plant apple trees instead?

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

Oh, a black-on-black crime argument *yawn*

Hey, whites perpetuate the vast majority of murders against whites! *gasp*

Maybe they should stop worrying about african americans and african american neighborhoods? Nope. Keep pushing the trope of the violent African American male.

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

The root of this is not racism. The root of this is, as President Obama finally acknowledged in an interview this week (only 7.5 years into his administration, he's been very busy with more important things up until now I guess):

“It is absolutely true that the murder rate in the African-American community is way out of whack compared to the general population,” Obama said. “And both the victims and the perpetrators are black, young black men.

“The single greatest cause of death for young black men between the ages of 18 and 35 is homicide. And that’s crazy. That is crazy,”

First, black Americans need to value their own lives. About 50% of the murders in the US are committed by about 7% of the population (black males) - that's why cops are so quick to act. They may or may not admit it, but that's the reason.

When the sky is dark, you carry an umbrella or cancel outdoor events. Why? Are you discriminating against the dark sky because you are a blue sky-supremacist? No. You are observing patterns and know that the chance of rain is higher with dark skies. It's the same principle. You might not like what I say, but you know I am correct.

Re: “Marchers gather at Marion Square to speak out against police violence

We have to emphasize that Black Lives Matter because the policies and institutions ingrained in this country acts as though they do not matter.

Cops murder African American men with astounding frequency. They meet African Americans with disproportionate force. They profile based on skin color, and the results are deadly for the African American community.

Of course all lives matter--but recognize that white lives have always mattered. Recognize that cop lives have always mattered.

We now have to emphasize Black Lives Matter because we have a long and continuing history of the devaluation of their lives--and it deserves to be stated again and again and again until you toddlers can understand it.
