just sayin

A poster quite recently spent a lot of bandwidth justifying the "outrage" of the "Justice for Trayvon" folks. People that have been in this thread for some time trying to discern fact from fiction and come to a balanced and legal conclusion for some time are now expressing a bit of outrage of the continued biased and unreasonable things being posted.

Again, it goes back to Critical Race Theory. Reasoning and logic are irrelevant.

2:00 on. This is what Critical Race Theory Proponents actually believe.

And rightfully so I have actually been lurking this thread for quite some time although i've only posted recently . The reasons for that are of no matter but I have to say I would probably be of a differnt mind if it were not for this thread . If my hard head can be changed by the simple facts of what I've read here I would wish others the same opportunity

Thanks Harvey for wasting 3 or so minutes of my life. LOL! As far as I'm concerned the whole theory is racist crap thinly disguised. Oh wait, I'm using reason and logic again instead of blindly following the diatribe. I'll try harder not to do that. I promise.

Be thankful it was just 3 minutes. I had to take one of those classes in law school. Biggest fucking waste of time of my life.

Unlucky you for sure. Especially if the cost of the class was on your dime. I suppose the silver lining to it though would be it gives you some insight in how and why some people "think" the way they do. Other than that I think I would rather eat glass instead of sitting in on something like that.

I really didn't get most of what she was saying there. My gut revolted a bit when she started invoking social sciences, but I'm also not sure what this stuff means and what its application is supposed to be.

Some aspects of this thread are starting to border on pathological.
The history of this case is public. Does that mean outrage at certain aspects of what ocurred should be squelched? Does it really need to be justified at all?
It seems that any public outrage is patently feared by some posters who spend hours and days raking through it for the sole purpose of mocking it.
Weird shit. People will have their own reasons for feeling how they feel that cant always be stuffed into the little box called "ignorance" (though convenient if it could right?)

It's absolute bullshit Munch. In a nutshell she's saying that racism is a common occurrence in the US which is a bold faced lie. She tries to justify this by using buying an expensive purse and when the clerk says it's expensive she twists this into some kind of racial slur. That's a crock of shit in and of itself. Good retail people are trained to look over a customer in an attempt to get an idea of whether or not they can afford an item. An example would be what watch brand are they wearing. A Rolex is a sign of a flasher of money while a Seiko is the sign of someone who has money but doesn't just blow it for the sake of social appearance. Retail people are trained to not take a person's race into consideration. She goes on and talks about her lovely sons. That's fine but if they act/dress like gangsters or thugs in public and that's the first impression that's portrayed to someone who doesn't know them who wouldn't look at them funny or with some level of contempt? That's not the problem of the viewer, it's a problem with them. Likewise if they were dressed in a suit and spoke as if they were educated then nobody would pay much attention to them now would they? She goes on to further say that if something that revolves around a minority (black) that it somehow has to be done so there's some appeal to the white crowd in order for it to be accepted. All in all it's a perfect example of real racism at work.

It is ignorance. Why else are certain people repeating the same false statements over and over again? Are you suggesting NB and others are lying on purpose?

It's also absurdly racist to suggest that black people and other minority groups can't control their emotional responses to situations and are incapable of reasoning or applying logic. The perpetual racism of lowered expectations.

It's not just outrage. It's misinformation being spread with the intention of putting more people in prison. That makes me outraged.

I'm sure much of this sounded good in your head but in the world outside your head it fails to impress anyone not in the choir.

Both exist and are not necessarily tied together. Some understand the facts of the case, and still feel upset. Some are missing salient facts. Some are using it as a springboard for their own axes to grind. What I see here is rampant red herring dragging to disparage "unreasonable" outrage.

You're the third respondent. Kind of speaks for itself dont it?

You are engaged in the same anti-intellectualism that people rightly accuse conservatives of doing, best exemplified by George W Bush's comment that "I go with what I feel in my heart."
