    I think racial humor is hilarious.

    You "liked" the post.

    Deny/deflect all you like. That is reality.
    again you are wrong., I have no use for the poster's claim that the "flyover" states are full of klansmen based on one yahoo in one gun show.

However, all that does is admit that there is prejudice against black people whether they're law abiding citizens or not.



    What do the attitudes of police, judges, DA's and shopkeepers have to do with this? A DA has nothing to do with whether a million blacks are denied business loans. A shopkeeper has nothing to do with insurance companies refusing to insure black businesses and homes. Do they? What does a judge have to do with whether 10 million people are poor?
    Well if you're dressed like a gangbanger, and it's midnight, and I'm driving a cab.... I'm not picking you up. If you think that's racist, that's your opinion.

    If you're a middle-aged black man in a suit and tie, I'm absolutely picking you up.

    So it depends how you carry and present yourself. These kids who want to wear hoodies and sag their pants to their knees and worship gangbanger hiphop gun violence and treat their women like objects.... their whining about "racism" falls on completely deaf ears.

    Present yourself like a man who deserves respect, and you'll get respect. Present yourself like a thug, and you'll be treated like a thug.... and deservedly so.

    Maybe in a "hey, white guys can't dance" or "black guys like fat white women" way. Not shooting them.
    Freedom of speech is not freedom from criticism.

    Maybe, but if we can't laugh about race, we'll never get over racism IMO.

    And there's nothing funny about shooting people.

    I'd be surprised if you didn't think it was funny It's a pity that some have lagged behind as society has evolved. It's also a pity that some minds are polluted with ugly views about their fellow human beings and are so proud to openly proclaim that they find despicable bigots like the one mentioned in the OP humorous.
    Why do we fall?
    So we can learn to pick ourselves up.

    People are being shot in this opening story? I thought pieces of paper that are silly and stupid depictions of people were being sold as targets

I asked you how those things affected the black community. You have yet to show how. As a matter of fact there isn't a single post in this discussion where you even begin to address that question. There is nothing but deflection on your part and it's getting more and more obvious that you can't explain how black on black crime affects 10,000,000 people.
    Selling "running nigger" targets is no diferent than producing an episode of SouthPark or the next GrandTheftAuto.

    It's just people venting frustrations in a way that doesn't damage anyone. Yes it's racist, these are racial tensions being released, and that's not a bad thing.

    You can, just be a Democrat/leftist!
