No I don't ever think that. zeemike Jul 2015 #96
I don't always share my views of people and their attitudes in real life. MADem Jul 2015 #100
Well I know how to listen to people and I try to understand their POV zeemike Jul 2015 #104
Like I said--there's nothing to rebut re: blm. That is their truth and they want MADem Jul 2015 #105

Because the origin of racism in this country is an economic system in which men and women were OWNED Romulox Jul 2015 #80
so how does that explain Sandra Bland and the Pool kids and the RAcist cops ? the cops are not rich JI7 Jul 2015 #82
Slavery--a product of capitalism--is the origin of our racial caste system. nt Romulox Jul 2015 #83
so are the cops the slave owners ? JI7 Jul 2015 #84
They work for the heirs to the slaver owners' wealth. Romulox Jul 2015 #85
that still doesn't explain it since the cop themselves wont get financial benefit JI7 Jul 2015 #86
They draw their salaries from "it"--they enforce the economic status quo with deadly force. nt Romulox Jul 2015 #87
I agree that racism was the dehumanizing tool used to further the slave enterprise 1StrongBlackMan Jul 2015 #90
American slavery was the commodification of racism--it's purest form. "Otherism" isn't the same thing. nt Romulox Jul 2015 #92
