    Maybe I'm just never meant to understand why chicken wing comments are made about black people and why it's supposed to be racist
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    They felt threatened. How does that make sense any other way?

What's bad about chicken wings, I thought it more of a stereotypical football fan thing...chicken wings and beer?

    Still confused at that one
    I don't know, do you understand what racism is, and how associating something as innately tied to skin color is racism?

    I'm not listening to the media for the other side of the story. I'm waiting for the civil lawsuit, and to hear the details on that. Like I said, it doesn't surprise me. Localized racism is definitely prevalent, but I find they are mostly isolated cases.

    well, if there any means another person might make themselves a threat to you, besides associations you draw with their skin color? If yes, then there are numerous other possibilities that would make sense

    It's actually great that you don't know. And I don't want to be the person that tells you. Just e happy that you don't understand it, because although it's based in some truth, it isn't the type of thing that will make any difference in your life to understand it.

    (Shhhh... PM me and I'll explain it. But don't tell anyone I did...)

    Maybe they're suffering from PTSD.
    Maybe certain things were said that were threatening.
    Maybe certain movements were taken as threatening.

    You thought I was full of rage based on comments I made in another thread, why would you come to that conclusion? Was it based on my race? Was it based on sex/gender, was it based on age? It's a hypothetical question, not meant to be answered but meant to be thought through. There could be a million different reasons as to why that individual felt uncomfortable or threatened so why pick out one in a million and assume it was race?
    I believe half of the things I say and say half of the things I believe.

    But it's also tied to "rednecks", it get's back to the whole why is it racist for black people but not when it comes to white people?

    reread what I wrote. Nothing I wrote claims the issue is in anyway exclusive.


    "associating something as innately tied to skin color is racism"

    Notice the absence of some limiting qualifier before "skin color"
