    It's a subtle change from what I was taught growing up.



    Smiling faces, SOMETIMES, pretend to be your friend. That was then. These days a lot of people see those smiling faces everywhere.

    Not that most people around here will give a damn about my POV but I'm pretty well convinced that as we have grown farther from God in this country and, in some cases, co-opted god for our own purposes, we have forgotten how to forgive, understand and cherish one another.

    CNN has him on as a pundit, talking head, and news commentator. He is a co-founder of several nonprofit organizations, including the Dream Corps, a "social justice accelerator" that operates three advocacy initiatives: #cut50, #Yeswecode and Green for All. He's often presented as CNN's resident expert on race relations.

    He said well intentioned white person. That does not translate to all to me

    Even though Van Jones is a lawyer, has been very active in many projects and won many awards, and his opinions have been highly regarded, I don't agree with very much of the things he says. I don't agree with this particular statement either. Van Jones is too radical far-left, for me. He's a lawyer, not a journalist, and his opinions aren't formed through investigative material or fact, they are more subjective and observant. Even regular viewers of CNN don't agree with Van Jones much. CNN gave him his own show in 2013, a debate show called Crossfire alongside Newt Gingrich, Stephanie Cutter and S.E. Cupp. The show made its debut in Sept. 2013 and by October 2014, the show was cancelled.

    ROFL! You seriously think the election of the leader of the racist Birther Movement, the movement which attacked a sitting black POTUS for nothing more than the colour of his skin, was just a coincidence. That Trump ran a campaign based on appealing to racists, and got their votes, because they weren't pissed at having had a black POTUS for eight years?

    Trump and G.O.P. Candidates Escalate Race and Fear as Election Ploys

    Some Republicans Still Think Obama Was Born in Kenya as Trump Resurrects Birther Conspiracy Theory
    Perhaps unsurprisingly, respondents who voted for Donald Trump in the 2016 election were especially convinced of Obama's African origins: Fully 57 percent said it was "definitely true" or "probably true" that the 44th president came from Kenya.

    I agree that the term is not the best.
    What should we call it when the only demographics trump decisively won are, "white", "white men", "white non-college grads"?
    Men do what they have to when they want to, Great men do what they have to, even when they don't want to.

    The world is struggling with COVID-19 .. and only white people in the U.S. struggle with COVID-KKK. Nice broad brush there Van Jones.

    Forgiveness, patience, forbearance, caring, and understanding have all taken a backseat to intolerance, name calling, labels, accusations, and hatred. We're promoting a society of extremism, ignorance, financial disparity, and oppression.
