I think this is where we are going to end up in a bit of stalemate because I am an Ancom and my approach to this is rather extreme

anarcho communists after real world problems exist

No, but you do realize that this is an example of what CRT is used for, right? Statistics don't exist in some vacuum, there is context and beyond that, reasoning for why x gets to y. If anything, you might want to inspect your closest mirror for the boogeyman you were asking about. :wub:
Yes, the crime rate is higher among blacks because *gasp* blacks commit more crime.

Again, proving that you need to look into CRT... Yes, there are more reported crimes by folks with some colour to their skin. Why might that be? Maybe because targeted attacks through numerous generations after being liberated from actual slavery have kept them in poor neighborhoods with substandard education and desperate living conditions? Maybe police tend to over focus on black communities because they know they'll be more likely to be called to intervene in their neighborhoods, creating a vicious cycle that focuses on established "problem areas" despite not being able to tackle root problems such as access to mental services, rehabilitation, and just decent housing and food. Maybe the culture has looked at black crime so harshly for so long, it dominates the media landscape and makes out black men to be "super predators" even though they're also the most likely to be the victims of lethal violence. There's a lot of problems, but over-policing leads to body-bags, not positive change.

But hey, racism as hard as you want! It isn't like anybody on these forums will stop ya! :rolleyes:

I guess dealing with ignorant fascists IS becoming a real world problem worthy of that reaction.

For the sake of being nice, I'll ignore the implication that I'm a fascist because I think that communism is a utopian stupid idea that in every single iteration of it's existance has never worked

Follow up for the curious, afraid it is going to have to be in reaction video form (almost feels like 2012, good times) rather than the source quoted as I am too bone idle to go looking for that right now. Though does include some further interesting aspects.


Short version. The students that kicked off were found as being racist themselves (surprisingly enough a bad thing to be in US universities in what was then current space year) and had to write a little essay on not being bad (minor, bordering on trivial, punishment compared to theoretical penalties for what they were found as being guilty of*).

*granted I believe this was an internal investigation so given the troubling nature of those in past incidents (see anything but due process of law) I am not going to complain, and given the non apology/practical doubling down of their follow up (assuming that is not taken out of context) then... yeah.

Also apparently the hats they were wearing are troubling according to said video. Were these the vaunted MAGA hats? No. Clan hoods? No. Faux Indian headdress? Nope. Fishing and hunting shop? Yes. Seems I had missed an update pack for my racist symbols for while I was familiar with milk drinking, OK hand symbol/circle game, burning crosses, various numbers then this was a new one, though I suppose there are race/minority based efforts to reclaim the countryside so guess that is fitting at some level.

Wait, what is the problem with the Chick Fil A cup? I haven't heard that one before.
It is an older one actually.
The boss/owners/founders are quite determinedly Christian (in the 1950s American sense of the term, also confusingly for some Americans they are also closed on Sundays) and play to it in various ways. At one point circa 2012 they (as in not the chain directly but the owner via a related charitable arm) opposed gay marriage (again hyper Christian) with considerable donations over the years to causes that also opposed it and that apparently is bad enough to call for a boycott.
Over the years it flares up and down as people seek a punching bag and spin doctors on all sides do their thing (usually the pro side pointing at either quality of food or pay and conditions for the staff, which by US national fast food chain standards are pretty good actually, albeit not a high bar to clear).

https://www.yahoo.com/lifestyle/why...fil-a-anti-lgbtq-controversies-205302238.html is a pretty decent summary if you did want to go deeper

Honestly as someone who actually enjoys their food, I still find those who grasp on to this with any offensive matter ignoring not only the fact that the founder had passed away a few years back and the current head having shown no interest in continuing these donations. But also the fact that there are far larger entities out there worth standing against because of their general dehumanizing mentality towards the world at large.

That said its just easier to target something small and singular like Chick-fil-a, because its something most people do not find themselves to depend on. Now if you are talking about the many hands of Nestle, or hell anyone in the Pharma industry, oh boy you are going to be digging a big hole for yourself and your movement. Especially since Some of these entities are not above hiring squads to "silence" opposition.

No one really wants to change the world for the better anymore, they just want to show that they want to care just so they can feel good about themselves. Its slacktivism in full effect just like Kony 2012 demonstrated.
