    I disagreed with the police response necessarily being about racism, this is not about police response. Although police infiltration with far right might be going on as well.

    It's 6 million jews, which by the way in u.s. racial categorization are mostly considered, you got it: white people.
    If you want something to get done, ask a busy person. If you want them to have a nervous breakdown that is.

    You didn’t ask me but sure, I can agree that race plays in some fashion in the whole world of Trumpian politics. If you specifically mean the attempted “coup “maybe but far less so.

    I’m with Ldahl in that I do not respect your opinion drawn from a slogan on one person’s T-shirt. I’m sorry that you can’t see how you’re cherry picking pieces to fit your chosen narrative.

    Glad you arenít on Reddit asking thatÖ

    We love you here and know you are a sincere, brave, and real person. For that reason I will tell you the 6 million refers to the Jews killed by Hitler in World War II.
    Thank you.

    Modern neuroscience teaches us that everyone is racist. It's encoded into our brains.

    The question is: what do you do about it?

    Good luck, get well, enjoy your retirement, even if not exactly under the circumstances at your choosing (covid).

    This right here is one of several reasons why I have a little patience with race education. Like all issues in education, The dominant idea changes.


    20 -25 years ago we were being taught that racism stems completely from our environment. “No baby is born racist. “ I can’t tell you how many times that was repeated in my education.


    So now we find the babies are indeed born racist?


    Science. Always believe it. Even when it changes every whipstitch.
