    American racism has changed from the 60's where the majority used it to oppress minorities to minorities using it to terrorize the majority into submission today.
    The question is more important than the answer!

    Medusa, that is the 'purest' form of racism, if ever there was one.

    Yes, whites are being terrorized into submission, straight into being the vast majority of most positions of power in America, like organs of governments and corporations. lol.
    Nobody who wins a war indulges in a bifurcated definition of victory. War is a political act; victory and defeat have meaning only in political terms. A country incapable of achieving its political objectives at an acceptable cost is losing the war, regardless of battlefield events.

    Bifurcating victory (e.g. winning militarily, losing politically) is a useful salve for defeated armies. The "stab in the back" narrative helped take the sting out of failure for German generals after WWI and their American counterparts after Vietnam.

    All the same, it's nonsense. To paraphrase Vince Lombardi, show me a political loser, and I'll show you a loser.

    So long as there's blood pumping in Calypso Louie's veins, so long as there is air in Brotha Jesse's lungs, so long as there is give in Al "Pin the yarmulke on the Jew" Sharpton's waistband, there will be racism in the USA.

    So you're demanding they both should have been found innocent because they were black or brown. Gee, that's not racist at all.
