    You cannot find the answer to this question for the same reason that a fugitive cannot find the police.

    Yeah, that makes sense.

    I guess that means that an apple is an orange, becaise a vest has no sleeves.

    Uhh....

    That makes no sense.

    The only reason a fugitive would not be able to locate the police would be if he/she did not want to.


    You're saying that apdst doesn't want to see how privileged he is?

    By guess is as good as anyone else's guess.

    Why can't all Americans act civilized one time?
    I hope your right but have serious doubt you are. Past situations have shown this will likely go bad.

    I don't know of any group of people that are civilized all the time. This is not a widespread deal. So far it is concentrated in a small area. It very well could expand if the agitators push it to that.

    If he were so concerned about the one-time possibility of rioting and looting, then maybe he should look at the much larger problem of the systematic oppression of people of color. Maybe, just maybe, that is what they have been desperately trying to say. But I don't expect for him--or the naysayers on this forum, for that matter--to ever get that.

    Lol !!!

    Exactly!! He's afraid of the implications of what it means for white privilege to be a real thing. Now the question is, will he face those fears with courage? Or with defensiveness?

    Perhaps white nationalism appeals to you, Hogwash.

    Would you mind sharing a link to that? I'm interested in what the bullet points you mention are.

    Perhaps...I just call a spade a spade. When somebody gets it right, I acknowledge it.

    Addendum to this post...I literally had to look up white nationalism to see what perhaps appeals to me. And I found that white nationalism seems to do so.
