    I might recommend you read up on why people saying things like "Not all men" is obnoxious at best, as that kinda appears to be what you're doing. You're minimizing something you acknowledge exists by continually saying "Yeah, but that's not all of it." You're simultaneously saying that there's a problem, but it's really not that bad because there are other potential problems.

    Now, repeat that to include the non-white, non-men, non-old.

    Racism exists. This is an indisputable fact or undeniable reality.

    Cops shooting people dead unnecessarily... or simply other forms of unnecessary roughness... This is also a problem.

    They are both bad..., I've never stated that racism isn't so bad, it's just that I think the other problem is worse and is more easily fixable.

    BLM movement sort of masked the real issue of police excessive force problem. It's kinda ironic that it took a 'squeaky clean white woman' for people to realize Twin Cities police is kinda fucked up. There are no more excuses, no black men to blame. They need to fix themselves!

    Here's an example of how racist twin cities police confused dogs as black men:

    (Warning, if you're a dog lover, don't watch the fucking video.)

    So I really believe the problem is bigger than racism. Stirring up racial tensions won't really help the excessive force issue... and it'll only end up making the police more nervous...

    One thing I'd give to Neanderthal though... that it's obvious now that white life is more important than black lives and dog lives. I really thought the dog incident might cause a more significant backlash, but nope... it took this white woman to roll the head of the police chief.

    Solid points all around. I'm not sure I'd go so far as to weight racism vs. excessive force, but you're right that one of those can be addressed with a structure and the other cannot be managed in any way. At the end of the day, I suppose you can be as racist, misogynist, prejudiced, and bigoted as you want to so long as I can't tell from your behavior. Keep that shit quiet, don't tell anyone, yes, you're all alone with your insane ideas and you should be ashamed of them. Act like a professional, treat people with respect (even if you don't respect them), be fair and impartial. As long as you do that, hate me for whatever reason as much as you want. Do your job, do it right. How you feel is up to you.

    I have mostly looked onto the Trump administration as curiously sad. I think this may be the first thing that has legitimately pissed me off.

    This is a not a difference of opinion, or nepotism over good sense, or putting business over social good, this is targeting a group of people and acting against their best interest for absolutely nobody's gain.

    That's where you're wrong. It's for his gain. The most important gain there is. He's losing the support of every sane person in this country by his inability to get anything reasonable done, so now he just has to focus on the unreasonable!
    Get that weak shit off my track
