    The culture barrier is real

    Totally agree, but how can we internet troll if we have to limit their usage?

    The culture barrier is real

    Guy in the video is wrong. I know everything. In all seriousness though I knew about most of the stuff he mentioned. It really bothers people when they learn my knowledge of black history/culture is fairly broad, and that I've still come to a different conclusion. No expert but I am a casual consumer and studier. One giant, gaping problem is that Racism is a word that doesn't mean anything anymore. You need to consider that maybe folk are tired of playing these dumb word games. Like years ago it was a really witty retort to say "black people can't be racist per say, because they don't have institutional power," and for the most part people didn't understand the entire ideological framework behind a claim like that and just dumbly nodded along. I, for one, swallowed it whole without much question. I was a total keyboard warrior and SJW bleeding heart back in the day. Not sure how far back the history on this site goes but you can scroll through my old posts and see for yourself if you are really curious. Yeah, I've changed. I'm racist, homophobic, transphobic, all the phobias and also have internalized-misogyny. These words don't mean anything anymore. They are just slurs for people you disagree with nowadays. Maybe if we flung them around a little less they would actually regain some meaning.

    No. Democratic abortion policies targeting black and minority neighborhoods are totally racist. I don’t see much difference between the people that make up each party when it comes to racism. I lean more that way every day. It’s two parties who are only interested in power, and will change policies at the drop of a hat if they think it will win more votes. Of course not. That’s why your premise of “find an anti-black” politician is a bit absurd. Nobody will say they are anti-black. Racism isn’t that bold anymore. Now it’s subtle and disguised. Democratic policies of “more abortion access in lower income communities” is anti-black, but it’s disguised. Republican policies that consistently oppose laws that attempt to create equity (healthcare, student loans, etc) are anti-black, but disguised. This is an absurd question. Lol. No. I usually avoid watching films with a 0% on Rotten Tomatoes.
