Re: “Revelry has a new Russian imperial stout called "Collusion" and (of course) it features Trump and Putin

Who says they aren't owning it? Until another president conspires with a foreign government to get illegal help, Revelry is not at all hypocritical for calling out Trump.

All the people who sincerely believed Barack Obama was a Muslim anti-Christ who will bring about Shariah Law should easily believe all the evidence that points towards Trump-Russia conspiracy.

Re: “Remembering two powerful voices lost in 2018

It's hard to talk about solutions with people who don't think there is a problem.

Certain folks think that being educated and getting married will solve police brutality and unequal treatment under the law. That solution addresses certain issues within the AA community, but fails to see the entire scope of 300+ years of institutionalized racism.

Hell, Michelle Obama is a Harvard educated lawyer who married a president. Didn't stop people, including government officials, from making all kinds of racist remarks.

I don't pretend that BLM has all the answers. But it's easy to understand why AA people get pissed off when they do the right thing and still get punished. Imagine what would have happened to the Summerville pool lady had she been black.

Care to elaborate on the part about "history denying"?

Re: “Remembering two powerful voices lost in 2018

Charles, there are people of all colors who are suffering from the trappings of poverty. Even if people were to follow your prescribed Cycle of Success, life is not always cut and dry. There is an argument to be made about the sanctity of family and fatherhood. However, like poverty, this issue is not exclusive to AA.

BLM is focused on receiving equal treatment by law enforcement. That's pretty much their main goal. It's only in the past several years that the general public has been able to witness first-hand, through video, the violence brought upon people of color. They've been telling us about it for decades, but there is now no denying what is happening. Having a great career or stellar education does not exempt people of color from this mistreatment from not just police, but some white people in general. The people in this article fought to pull back the curtain of our society and bring to light the injustice of being black in America. It's only through time and understanding that these issues can be corrected by all Americans. We can only do it together.
