    Make a thread on the general topic of violence and we can go into detail. Meanwhile, this topic is racism.

    Umm... no. Racism is about oppression and the subjugation of supposedly inferior people. It's about social power. Measures to correct injustice and systemic privilege are not racism, even if you personally cannot understand how the measure is corrective and otherwise beneficial.

    I believe you're confusing 'nigger' with 'nigga'. You do understand one is a racial slur and the other is not, right?

    A claim about violence based on racism, not violence per-se.
