    In fairness, how can you have a discussion on race without addressing the very real double standards which exist for every race? Double standards exist to benefit (and burden) every race in America. It's only fair to air the grievances of ALL races if you want an honest discussion on race.

    To your statement about rioting and looting. The Rams were not rioting and looting.

    I responded to haymarket's prejudicial general statement in general.


    Unless he's suggesting anyone here stated that the rams being stupid is somehow being favored to be restricted by libertarians, the concept would have to be expanded to make sense, in it's utter nonsense of course.

    In a way...yes, the players did. While on the job, in their employee uniform, the players made a statement which can easily be considered a reflection of their employer. It was not on their own time but it was on company time as representatives of the company.
