Re: Equifax data breach settlement claim submittal instructions

Now, the FTC is saying the folks who opted for the $125 cash settlement payment will wind up receiving much less due to overwhelming demand. Glad I picked the four years of free monitoring instead! I have to call out WOOD TV (and other media outlets as well) on this one for passing on disinformatio...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

If Trump proposes repealing the 13th Amendment (bringing back slavery), legalizing segregation, or if he starts calling black people n*ggers, then I'll be the first to come back here and call him a racist. Until then, I've seen nothing that rises above the level of bigotry - and even most of that ap...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

Plus, YM, If you want to come to the U.S. it should be because you want to be a AMERICAN. Embrace our culture, language and ethics. Not to get goodies and immediately try to change things. Those people will never embrace our American culture for one simple reason - that our country was founded by a...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

There's a difference between criticism and insult. Trump uses his most vile and hateful insults on people of colour. He doesn't tell Bernie Sanders to go back where he came from. He doesn't try to spin some conspiracy theory that Joe Biden was really born in Kenya. He doesn't refer to white countri...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

I'm convinced that the Tigers won't even be playoff contenders for AT LEAST the next 5 years, possibly even the next 10. There is absolutely nothing that organization is doing that would instill confidence in its fans that it wants to compete with the big boys anytime soon.

Trump may or may not be a racist. But he's campaigning for the racist vote. He doesn't want to leave a single racist vote uncast.
So is your opinion that criticizing people of color equates to campaigning for the "racist vote"?

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

This is the most articulate and intelligent response possibly. Unfortunate, the unhinged left on here will find some way to twist and manipulate it to absurd levels to fit their agenda. Intellect rately combats hate anger and stubborn bias. Thanks. I just get tired of the attitude that calling some...

Re: 2019 Detroit Tigers

Hard to believe this team was actually 18-20 at one point this year, playing nearly .500 baseball. Since then? 13-51. Their run production is anemic. 363 runs scored. Next worst in the AL is Chicago at 429. Detroit isn't in the basement. They're underground. This has to be one of the worst teams eve...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

Seems to me there's an awful lot of ethical and cognitive gymnastics being played here as to why statements or sentiments are not racist. I'll only chime in that if you would feel the need you would have to to go through similar gyrations with people such as your employer, pastor or look your your ...

Re: Can A Statement Be Racist If It's True?

To answer the original question in the title of this thread - YES, it can be racist to state facts, IF you would otherwise look the other way when an identical set of facts afflicts a member of your own race. The truth or falseness of a statement is irrelevant to whether someone is a racist; the rel...

Re: Build that wall

Your latter point is correct - Republican pundits absolutely GRILLED Obama repeatedly for saying he'd meet with Iran without pre-conditions, and I have no doubt that if Hillary had won and had been treating foreign dictators the same way Trump is, they'd be having one cow after another. No doubt abo...

Build that wall

Tough break, liberals. First, the Mueller hearing was mostly a bust, and now.... The Supreme Court ruled Friday that President Trump can use $2.5 billion in military funding to begin building a portion of his long-sought wall along the nation's southern border. https://www.usatoday.com/story/news/po...

How many times do you need to repeat the same conspiracy theory? That sounds like mental sickness itself. The answer is, 28 times, just since the beginning of this year (19 times using NPD, 9 more using the full name without the acronym). https://www.mibuzzboard.com/phpBB3/search.php?st=0&sk=t&sd=d...
