    Keep cheerleading the white rioters.

    White rioters are righteous and smart! Unlike those black ones!
    She didn't cheerlead. You're willfully distorting her post.

    Look, there are sociological reasons that blacks are more prone to rioting. It's because the existence of systemic privilege makes perceived injustice a threat to blacks collectively. That whites do not suffer such a motive is hardly any indication of them being smart or righteous.

    She is ignoring the existence of systemic privilege in order to claim the white rioters are better people than the black ones. It's racist BS.

    I think you are right. SOme of them did undoubtedly get something that most of us did not get. Like a socio economic status that we did not get from birth. Or the disadvantaged end of shallow gene pool. Or a parent without proper training or skills needed to get us on the right path and keep us there. Or role models who instead of showing us the positive behaviors instead showed us the wrong behaviors to be modeled and followed. Or the absence of a good education. Or the absence of good work habits. Or various addictions and bad habits.

    Yes, you are right - they got something that most of us did not get.

    Once again a troll post from you. It must be my lucky day!

    You think blacks rioting and destroying their city in the name of "justice" is perfectly understandable. It says a lot right there about what you think of their ability to act like adults. Me, I believe they have the capacity to make their voices heard without pillaging their towns.

    You're the one who thinks white rioters are decent. I think they're garbage, which of course I've said more than once, but you choose to ignore because it doesn't allow you to drone on about how racist everyone is but you.

    Let me know when you want to be serious and I may indulge you with a little bit of my attention.

    When two people - OF ANY RACE - with an IQ in the low 80's has a child please tell me what the probabilities of that gene pool are? And what about the genes for all kinds of things that are not at all desirable being passed on to a baby? Explain how that is racist?

    And why did you selectively ignore all the other factors in my post?

    Now is this where I get to say how very racist of you?

    Ah, so that's it now. Blacks have IQs in the low 80s?

    What a racist post.

    One can understand it and not advocate it. Why do you hate understanding?

    It says a lot right there about what you think of their ability to act like adults.
    No, it just means I'm capable of a social perspective and how sociological factors impact people of different races.

    Me, I believe they have the capacity to make their voices heard without pillaging their towns.
    Oh, spare us the BS demonization.

    You're the one who thinks white rioters are decent. I think they're garbage, which of course I've said more than once, but you choose to ignore because it doesn't allow you to drone on about how racist everyone is but you.
    What happened to "well at least they don't blame systemic privilege"? You realize they cannot because they don't suffer it, right? So you're giving them credit for something they have nothing to do with - typical white privilege.

    Let me know when you want to be serious and I may indulge you with a little bit of my attention.
    I don't give a **** if you respond. Your ignorance on the subject is of no use to me. I'm still gonna point out your BS racist statements.

    That was YOUR statement. I said OF ANY RACE. There are people with IQ's in the 80's. In fact it might shock you but if 100 is the average, then a hell of a lot of people - half to be exact are at 100 or below. Nothing racist about that.

    The sad reality is that when people of low IQ are compounded by all sorts of other social problems like racism and other factors that hit minorities especially hard besetting them ad handicapping them - it does indeed become a factor that is very very hard to overcome unlike white people who do not have those same factors in addition to a lower IQ.

    Sorry, but that is just the way it is and to deny the role race and racism plays in it is the worst sort of RACISM of all.

    The other route would have been to charge and arraign and set for preliminary hearing. And the answer to your question is No. I'm always surprised that prosecutors don't go the route of grand jury more often.
