Maybe it's yours? Of course it's not. A white man knows what its like to be pulled over and harassed by police? A man can understand what sexism and having medical decision and things like loans requiring fathers or spousal consent? There is no issue with having mostly white men in elected office? ...

Armed blacks are harder to bully than unarmed blacks. Armed gays are harder to bully than unarmed gays. Et cetera, et cetera, et cetera. Everybody wins! Tell that to Diamond Reynolds. Individual minorities being slaughtered for daring to use their constitutional rights is the exact opposite of an a...

It’d be kinda wack to force someone to perform an inherently artistic action, so respect to the couple. They handled it well.

So you're saying that a white person should be representing that district instead? How did you come to that conclusion?

That’s your answer? Seriously? There are plenty of state legislative districts that are majority or plurality white and someone not Caucasian represents it.

The problem with framing white privilege as, well, white privilege is that yes, while it may be true that the cops are both less likely to beat a poor white guy to death and less likely to get away with it if they do than if it were a poor black guy, that’s not exactly a high bar to pass, now is it...

Would they though? I wouldn’t say some rich white dude in office would really understand how I, a somewhat poor white dude, live and what issues I face.

So you’re not for gender equality, then? Like, you can’t be for equality between the sexes, if you only care about one of the sexes. "Gender equality". Gender doesn't make sense to me because I believe it to be a social construct. Equality between the sexes? Sure, but that doesn't, and ha...

I can see an argument for a complainant’s history of false testimony being considered in a court case.
