    There is a difference between the idea that an internal problem exists and we need to address it (without violence) and wishing to destroy the structures upon which society was built.

    It is also not out of question to suggest conservatives should also keep that in mind next time they get the tingling sensation that every contention with the government means turning into some metaphorical Samuel Adams.

    Lmao, it hasn't. This isn't a race war anymore than the Italian and Irish gangs killing each other was. If they are a sign of race wars, America has been in one for far longer than the 2000s. Of course, I'm sure you'll say that killing Native Americans by the thousands wasn't a race war. Subjective Chinese immigrants to cruel working conditions wasn't a race war. Interning the Japanese wasn't a race war. The KKK wasn't part of a race war. Please, stop the diatribes and feeding the flames of stupidity, you're smarter than that.

    'Race' war? No, man...that was just a war war. That was conquest...you know...the same thing every nation and people have done throughout history (INCLUDING the Indians).

    That wasnt meant to make you butthurt (though that seems to be a fairly common achievement). That was posited conversationally. I said earlier there isnt going to be a race war. You should relax...add some fiber to your diet...get a massage or something.

    You're kidding right? You think there wasn't a racial component to the White Man's Burden? You think there wasn't a racial component to pushing Native Americans out of their countries? Or forcing the Chinese to work? Or the Italians and Irish wars in NYC? You're joking or ignorant. Which is it?

    No more so than different tribes in Africa selling other tribes because they were inferior (or for that matter the wholesale slaughter of Tutsis in Rwanda-you know...**** that still occurs today). Or the Japanese kidnapping Koreans for sex slaves. Different times, different thought processes, different people.

    Geeeezus you have a complex. So sad.

    Where has he been lately?


    Precisely.
    "He who does not think himself worth saving from poverty and ignorance by his own efforts, will hardly be thought worth the efforts of anybody else." -- Frederick Douglass, Self-Made Men (1872)
    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS.
