    I'm not answering any more of your questions when you don't have either the courtesy, or the guts to answer the one I posed to you.


    Debate is a 2-way street pal.

    You don't have to. I've already gotten what I wanted out of the conversation. You disagree with her implication that "bad guys" can be sorted out by race. You can't even dignify answering why. I suspect it is because even you - a defender of everything FOX - realizes that it's racist as ****. Now, we're just doing that thing where you rage about liberalism and then you write a long post about what leftists do. All because you couldn't even admit that the implications of her question were racist as hell.

    They were not racist and you know it... That's why you can't answer my question because if you did, your entire argument would fall apart.

    You can always tell when someone is full of crap... Just ask them an honest question and watch them do anything but answer it... LMAO

    Utter nonsense. Why can't you tell whether someone is bad by skin color?​ What would that mean?

    There isn't enough context to know, but my first impression is that this is an attempt to Identify a perpetrator. We do that via description. Secondly these are questions. Asking about the race or ethnicity of a terrorist seems to be the opposite of racism. It would be easy to assume those answers instead of asking the question. in the end poor poll question because of limited context.

    I hadn't realized that those guys were Muslim terrorists?

    No answers from you... no answers from me.

    Debate is a 2 way street, and not meant for people who's beliefs can't hold up to simple questions.
