Is this the logical outcome to a country torn apart by its divisiveness? We are going back to the 1960s. How very sad.

Unfortunately there have been places and people who have always thought like this as well as on the flip side.

Also what's unfortunate is that groups, again on all sides believe they can push an agenda and nobody is going to be offended.

I hate seeing things like this happening. I'm all for peaceful demonstrations for EVERYBODY.

I don't believe that tearing down historical monuments is the right thing to do. What happens when it's decided since Washington was a slave owner we should tear down the Washington Monument.

Wasn't discrimination active prior to these monuments being erected? Thus tearing them down isn't going to stop the discrimination.

This is a bad situation and unfortunately there is enough blame to go around. However, ultimately the person driving the vehicle is ultimately responsible for his actions.

West what's really funny is the monkey believes that racism is a political issue, he acts like the only people that are racist are on the right. Eventhough the dems have the history with being racist and keeping the blacks down. Some day he may grow up to be a man and understand that individuals are responsible for their own actions.

We cannot even be compassionate on this internet board. It's your fault...it's his fault. We have lost our way. And there's nobody to help us find our way back. Vladimir Putin is smiling.

all this hub bub about removing  Confederate memorial statues but to make this "fair" I'm wanting Memorials of Washington/Jefferson and the like removed as well..they owned slaves..therefore they were racist..oh & lets not forget Meriwether Lewis as well..Towns and County's & States should all be renamed. We should find  someone without sin..lets name everything after Jesus Christ..cant do that because it'll up set the Muslims/Hindus/ Buddhist/Jews/ Atheists.

 

 sure there has to be someone who does not insult someone in this fucking country..anyone?

The Dems are the original racist, they have with the help of the media re-written history, the Dems gave us separations, the Dems gave us the Confederate Flag in South Carolina, the Dems gave us the KKK and so on and so on, but now the Republicans get all the blame. :wacko:

Let's wait and see. The media always default blames the Right before they have all of the info. Portland train shooter first reported as pro-Trump conservative. Ended up a Bernie supporter. Republican baseball practice shooter first reported as pro-Trump. Ended up being a liberal Hillary supporter. Etc....etc...

This is less about blame and more about our deterioration of compassion and respect for people that are not us. Look at the demographics in this thread. All about blaming the other guy.
