49. So whether something is true, depends on how someone feels?

 


So if a guy says "Black men are dangerous criminals" and I call him a racist, can you tell me what I should say to "Tell that to someone who was the victim of a black criminal!"?

Maybe this is difficult to understand, but fear is an irrational thing.

Yes, out of 1.2 billion theater visits last year, a dozen people were killed by shooting.

Every five days in the U.S. a child dies by choking on their food. Go tell them how healthy it is to eat! What sort of reasoning is that?
