Boooooooooring. Yes I am bored with this nonsense. That’s all it is. This movement is NOT about getting an education, thats already available to EVERYONE. It will NOT put Fathers into the roughly 70% of Black families without one. Nope, not one. Strictly a money maker for the Democratic party.

to all the usual thumb downers. do you not think the items i mentioned are important to Blacks? Education and Fathers. So stop hiding, come out with thoughts. Any moron can carry a sign.
Especially when surrounded by like morons.

Calling out racists, apparently, which I fully support.

is “calling out” a strategy? how does it help their cause. do you full support it enough to go to the CD or 3rd & Pike to talk with Black people? or do you just “call them out”. Sounds like you may be a”closet” ant -racism guy.

I love your pushback. About time the other righteous people stood up. How do you like watching rich black MILLIONAIRE athletes complaining about “injustice”? I feel bad for Mahomes in KC. https://247sports.com/college/west-virginia/Board/103782/Contents/What-Malcolm-X-said-about-liberals-is-true-50-years-later-106407076/

Maybe there will be a discussion.
Or, Maybe there will be a lecture delivered by multiple presenters including responses to prescreened questions which exclude dissenting views.

“Dissent is patriotic”, remember?

Breaking windows, putting businesses out of business, injuring Police Officers, starting fires, destroying property is NOT dissent its criminal.

So in your mind, linking to a video posted by a commenter on a West Virginia sports blog is supposed to prove that it’s not you that’s racist, it’s everyone else that is racist?

most people are racist to some extent, going back to the caveman. we find safety in people that look as we do. anyone who says they are NOT racist, doesn’t know himself very well. IMO

It always takes 2 to Tango.

Your bigotry is astounding. What a contradiction you are. But I get it. Without the poor white people to bash on it would feel pretty pretty awful to be paying that giant liberal arts college student loan for nothing right? It’s important to feel better than somebody. Maybe try a career in journalism?

No, you won’t.

Are you white? If the answer is yes, you are racist. It’s that simple.

If you deny you are racist?

Simply more evidence of your racism.

Try to explain yourself?

Evidence of your racism.

Get defensive?

Evidence of your racism.

Haven’t you read Robin DiAngelo’s best selling novel?

I learned a lot in colege.
