  • The problem is cultural and extends well beyond the police as the mainstreaming of white nationalism on the right shows. You can give people equal rights and equal protections on a technical and legal level, but that won't prevent continued institutional issues. Changing hearts and minds is a different and more difficult task than brining about equality before the law. This is especially daunting in the case of the police, where there are multiple forces at play. First is the institutional racism where the police see criminals as "the enemy" and where racial stereotyping leads black men to be much more likely seen as threats. What is especially worrying is that this perception seems to pervade ethnicity amongst the police officers themselves - a common trend among police shootings of unarmed black men and women is the involvement of officers from ethnic minorities. Take George Floyd's murder as an example, one of the four charged was a black officer and another was Asian. As oxymoronic as it is to say, police institutional racism is multi-ethnic. This makes it easy for the police themselves to see their culture and behaviour as non-racist even though the facts and figures are clearly disproportionate. The other is that in many jurisdictions the communities from which police officers are drawn from have had long histories of segregation - something that is still within living memory and was actually popular in many states. You therefore have to not only tackle the institutional racism in the police but also ensure that you tackle racism amongst the communities - many of which have been trained by the right wing media and populist politicians to see such attempts as "cancel culture".

  • Well, let's see... Biden - a man about as creepy as Pennywise - who is showing strong signs of mental decline is president of the U.S. and the Vice-President is a dame of mixed race whose career was PUTTING NEGROS IN JAIL FOR POSSESSION OF DRUGS. Besides, if any of these tampon eaters had been paying attention Biden is just a watered-down Trump, which is why the Democratic Party, again, committed fraud against Bernie Sanders; because it's not remotely left wing, it's as right as a British car's steering wheel.

  • Sheriff "G" has some far out ideas. Too bad none of them support things like racial equality and civil rights in America. When publicly speaking to the press about a group of young blacks stealing from a mall and running from the police, he really puts it all out there. Life sentences for shoplifting, running from police and getting girls pregnant? "These people" "lets put them away" "This group of people" he's talking about young black people who are suspected of shoplifting but suggesting penalties that would not apply to the worst death row sentences in America. Some note that he appeared to be supportive of Black Lives Matter issues but how could that be? "A group of young blacks..." Is who he is talking about here. Ok maybe Some Black Lives Matter. With all that was going on during those days I can see how that missed the headlines. His comments were worst than anything I've heard from white people in the south who claim to be racist and even they wouldn't support those kind of public statements from a Sheriff.

  • Wow, I love this show but implying the only difference between the Blake and Rittenhouse arrests was skin color is staggeringly dishonest. One man had his hands raised and was willingly turning himself in, the other turned his back and lunged into his car while under arrest. These are objectively two completely different situations. To be clear I'm a leftist that believes we need massive criminal justice reform. I'm just truly appalled that John would be that blatantly dishonest.

  • Please Do A Piece on Michael Jackson Hi, I’m writing to you because Last Week Tonight as opposed to other such shows actually cares about issues rather than chasing the headlines. It has been 11 years since Michael Jackson passed away yet to this day what the common consensus is that he is a taboo subject for many. I recall you guys once did a piece on Public Shaming. Michael Jackson was a genius, an abused child. He was strange. He was one of the few major stars from the 80s who came out of the 80s without a heroine addiction. He in his own way did many, Many strange things, but so do most other superstars. And more than others he actually cared. About children, about the earth. About the issues we are discussing to this day. While Icons like Freddy Mercury, Elvis Pressley, Prince, Beetles and many more are known for their good works, Michael is known for the something which he has repeatedly been acquitted for. It’s the truth that anyone looking for will find instantly but due to the “where there is smoke there is a fire” narrative, even 11 years after his death, the new media treats him like a criminal. All his trial pages are open for the public to read. He WAS weird. Making a ranch called neverland, hanging out with children. Trusting people he shouldn’t. But I urge you please cover him, hear beyond the noise like you guys often do. The most successful African American Artist of all time was a humble man child, who respected women, loved children and cared about our environment. He was not a heroine junkie, a private man who did not share his disease even all the way back in 1993 even though he was accused of wanting to become a “White Man”. He was eccentric. Hanging out with animals and caring about them. theobjectivestandard.com/2020/02/justice-for-michael-jackson/ This article covers multiple sources, some of which I had read previously. Michael Jackson was a multi talented millionaire pop star, who was not an alcoholic, was a caring father, a filial son, Treated women with respect, cared about the planet and it’s beings. The press that constantly kept DASHING him, had found a way to subvert their guilt. All those years of calling him a “Jacko”, “monkey” and many more hurtful things was justified if he was a paedophile. They NEEDED him to be guilty. Such a man cannot exist in Hollywood. Such public shaming had allowed and to this day allows Michael to be a victim to all this slander. Please do a piece, if not one that exonerates him then one that once and for all cements the fact the Michael Jackson, the greatest pop star, the first African American Idol was a paedophile. Not through unknown sources or flimsy headlines but through concrete proof. A news echoing in a closed chamber will not reach anyone, most fans who what to know the truth know it, other people will read the headlines but not the explanations. It’s about time the general public knows. Please do a piece on Michael, the blatant mistreatment by the media, The systematic racism he faced during his trials. Please don’t let the first African American Singer be remembered for the things he did not do, He was weird, weird enough to annoy Freddy Mercury with Bubbles feedbacks, weird enough to let kids crack raw eggs over Michael Jackson, Weird enough to play water balloons with children. But he was not a paedophile and the world needs to acknowledge that. He was in no way a “Perfect Human” but he tried his best to live right and we should not punish him for doing that. On this year please exonerate this Black man, the Justice System has done it two decades ago, it’s about time everyone else does. Please do a piece on Michael Jackson. #spreadtheawareness #justiceformichael #hedeservedbetter

  • A part of this reminded me of a conversation I had with a fellow employee once. For some background information, I am a supervisor at my job where I overlook 15-25-year-olds. We also like to engage in debates when guests aren't around. Over my time as a supervisor, I find the best way to teach any lessons is to let someone think through the situation and to guide them to the right conclusion subtly so that they have an "Oh, this is why that makes sense" moment. This is because most teenagers have a knee-jerk reaction way of thinking and have a tendency to not processed the implications or consequences thoroughly. Also, this story also takes place either right before or around the time Trump was elected. Also, Also, we're not Americans. So I was at work and the night is starting to slow down we had a conversation in the back about what Trump's presidency would mean for world economics and if he was serious about most of the outlandish racist things he had been saying. We had broken off from the one major group into smaller groups and or started working on closing up. I was standing near this particular employee when he, a 16-year-old boy said "Too bad, there isn't a way for people who are illegally entering America and get caught to go, I dunno somewhere that's not a prison because that's not right but kept separately or something" I wasn't facing him and in an instant, I knew what he was trying to say but noticed he didn't realize the implication he just made and how bad it sounded so I kept my face neutral as possible and said "Oh? Like if we could build a temporary placement for them?" and he goes "Yeah!" At his enthusiasm, I kept going "Kind of like a camp?" and he said, "Yes like some sort of camp". At this point, I knew I had to drop the subtly because he wasn't picking up on it so I said "And at this camp, they can think about the crime they committed and-" he interrupted with an "Exac-" and I finished with a "- where they can really concentrate on what they've done" and at that he response"-ly. Oh! Oh no!" The conversation ended with a discussion on WW2. I knew he didn't mean it in a racist way. All he understood that they have technically committed a crime but felt jail was way too harsh a punishment for it. and understanding how they probably left for a good reason. But as someone who isn't a history buff or has an interest in legislation, he couldn't figure out a solution and was based on a prison-like system. Poor kid, but he got there in the end even if I had to spoon-feed him the History lol.

    • @Blokka Nokka First of all, those people shouldn't have been there and the police shouldn't have thanked them for violating the curfew and guarding properties, if that what was said. It was a bad idea for them to have been there, and unutterably stupid to have brought a child (in my eyes, anyone under 25 is still a child). Those people should've been turned back home as soon as the police encountered them. Also, I'm pro-gun-control. You seem to have your facts confused. 1) Yes, he was 17 but the WI law didn't prevent him from being in possession of the AR-15 someone else gave him because he didn't cross the state line with it. As to your claim that he's" not even able to hold" the AR-15, I doubt there is any law that prevented that at that time. 2) I have no idea what altercation with POC you are referring to since I've not heard anything about it. He was chased by MANY people of different colors, one or two of whom actually were seen in footage to have hit him. The men he shot during the rioting were all WHITE and had chased and accosted him; the first one he shot was in more than one video from that night behaving aggressively towards people on the other side of the protest (whoever they were). 3) Assuming that the video shows Kyle, as has been claimed by those who released the video, it is not relevant as it happened weeks prior, instead of just before the "rally" (riot). Pointing to that video, which is incomplete - i.e. we don't know the context - is like saying "Breonna dated a drug dealer, so she must've been a dealer or user." That's called a non-sequitur (false logic). Anyways, there were several people involved in the fight, and it was started by the two ladies in the video, after which some other people got involved, and then a group of young men (koff) jumped out of their car while recording and some of them started beating up one of the boys. The video is very shaky and it's really hard to follow what's happening. If you want relevance, John forgot to mention that Blake was in the commission of crimes WITH his kids in tow, when the officers approached him. THAT is relevant. 4) Motive is something that is not easy to determine without a lot of information. You could listen to the incendiary provocateurs at Color of Change and believe that he's a white supremacist - but why'd he shoot whites instead of POC? That doesn't make sense. You could believe he's a Trump supporter, but what bearing does that have? You could believe a bunch of other things. The only conclusion I can draw from the multiple videos I watched from that night is that he was accosted, chased by adults, and shot in self-defense. Any scared rabbit would do that. If there were other motives, I can't say. Hopefully, it'll be figured out in court.

Why does government insists on forcing blacks and whites living in the same communities, sure it benefits blacks and other minorities but it doesn’t help whites. So stop, please f ing stop forced diversify. It’s bad enough we are forced to deal with it at our work places, it shouldn’t be forced on our home life too. This only causes resentment. Trickle down economics doesn’t work and forcing diversity on our home lives doesn’t work either. Let it go! It’s not going to happen.

    • @Jelly Whit How does it hurt white folk? How does the simple presence of a black neighbour hurt a white family? Cause unless the family is racist, or you make racist assumptions there isn't any way someone with a darker skin tone living in the same street is a bad thing.

    • @Francis Leepol1236 I am from America 🇺🇸, besides how long do you have to be from here to be considered from here? No other Country does my family claim. America’s policy on immigration is simply an unfortunate aspect of the lot, which is America in its entirety. Some of these comments effects as when I was younger and annoyed at the slowness of old people, I was told you’ll be old some day too. I thought to myself yeah, and.... I’m growing bored and am no longer interested in continuing this thread. Thanks everyone for your well wishes and opinions. Take care.

    • @Jelly Whit Its funny that you have this outlook on diversity in a place like America, a place that if it didn't have immigration you would not be currently living in, unless you are native American. But what makes diversity so uneasy? Different cultures and beliefs? Something that is even more essential to America than even diverse race is the diversity of culture and beliefs. You're acting like every black person is the same and all will have qualities that you don't like which doesn't make any sense. Black people, or any race for that matter, can be just as diverse personalities and characteristics wise as white people. So how could you say you'd be uncomfortable or have a preference for having white neighbors when race has nothing to do with how they will be as neighbors. Being loud, obnoxious, rude, annoying, friendly, social or any form of behaviour is not dependent on race. The only thing that all black people have that you can have a preference for or not is the colour of their skin. Which is such a surface level, superficial quality that has no baring on how a neighbor will be like. Diversity can only lead to positives. More perspectives, different values, different world views can bring new ideas and experiences that can enhance your neighorhood. A black person can just as easily be a friend as a white person, race has no effect on how a person is, just what they look like. And its pretty wrong to have a preference for how people look in your naighborhood because that is not what any free country should strive for. Or anybody who enjoys a free country.

    • @Francis Leepol1236 I love America and our Democracy, I’m a firm believer of you do you, especially while you doing you effects me not about where I live and who my neighbors are. Have you ever taken a job but during orientation the company has stipulations or rules that cramp your style, you don’t agree with but you have to acknowledge that you are aware of such stipulation, rules or policies or you won’t get the job? That’s exactly how I feel about my nation being built on diversity and immigration. Yeah, yeah I don’t agree with that part being forced on me on some part of my life. I will try my best to ride under the radar, and let the parts I’m not to keen with effect my life negatively (depress me, give me anxiety, make me feel I have to move or put up with it, even though I won’t really. It will be consistently riding just under the surface keeping me at a state of unease daily, knowing it didn’t have to be a thing at all, if diversity wasn’t forced upon us) and still work at this company for the benefits I applied for with them or this is my homeland and as long as the benefits out way the unfortunate bullshit I plan to not have to deal with the stuff I’m not too keen on. Preference, Preference, Preference!

  • "These messages are not designed to appeal to Black voters, they're designed to tell white Americans that voting Republican doesn't make them racist." (Paraphrasing just a bit >.< ) This. Fucking this. The WHOLE conservative message is built around spoon feeding white Americans the idea that they're good people and innocent victims who are under attack. It's absolute garbage and it makes me sick. I AM a white American, I grew up middle class but am pretty damn poor now, and let me tell you, the privileges I've had compared to people of other races are astronomical. We need to sit down and have the hard conversations, reconcile with our racist ass systems and society, and figure out how to fix things. Now.

    • the sad thing is, alot of laws that were made to hurt black people by targeting the poor have inadvertently sucked the wealth from many lower-middle class white families as well. these people, now poor and fearful, are being radicalized by the very officials that proposed and supported said laws. there being told its everyone elses fault, that its not theirs. it actually isnt, its just that they still support the same people that have put them in this difficult position. we need to find a way to break through the fox news bullshit bubble and get these people, who are also in need of help, to see that the democrats are here to help ALL who have been impacted by systemic racist (and classist) laws, that includes the poor white families.

  • they couldn't have had "breonna taylor" on the t-shirt, because that's a person's name. Under normal conditions, the t-shirt indicates the *player's* name, which is not "breonna taylor". Yes, someone may dismiss this reasoning with "but we _know_ that 7 foot guy is not breonna, how could we confuse them?!" but i still consider it a sound reason for not including it in the list of "approved" labels.
