I listen to his podcast regularly and he has said repeatedly that polling data is much harder to come by accurately now that no one uses a landline.

you know who has a landline? old white people.

Other than a kanye/jesus morph, they better just sit calm and be boring if they want to win.
Yeah, I would barely speak if I were them. Hillary should work on not making any crazy expressions like she does too. Less memes that way.

you think this election is going to be decided by memes, wack?

i commend trump for his courageous stance that "it has to do with something." he says the things that people are afraid to say!

his point was that america didn't exist 400 years ago, liblib.

Does that mean that the areas that eventually became America had no bearing on culture? Again, irrelevant to the discussion

maybe i don't understand what the discussion is about (or 11 different people are having eight different discussions).

in my opinion, the central discussion of the day is dancing around the idea of reparations, or some other remedy or corrective for the impact of slavery/institutional racism. mir stated in responses to various posters that he doesn't think descendants of people that developed/supported or upheld those institutions are personally responsible for any remedy and also that he doesn't think "white people" as a group are responsible.  i agree with both of those statements.

that pretty much only leaves political entities as possible responsible parties it is nonsensical to hold a political entity responsible for actions that occurred when it didn't exist, hence any discussion of federal responsibility for institutions that perpetuated institutional racism prior to the existence of the us is irrelevant.  if you want to discuss the potential responsibility of england or of virginia, it might be an interesting discussion.

That's not entirely true.  Someone did ask who is responsible for fixing this, and he did pose the question something like "are the victims the one's responsible for the fix?"  So if I Venn diagram this stuff out, MIR is either saying that white people today are responsible for the fix, or he's inferring that he believes something he doesn't actually believe.

I just wish he would actually say what he thinks should happen.  Then his ideas could be confronted and considered for merit. 

But, he won't do that, I'm not entirely sure why and I could speculate but nah that's not productive either.

instead of having one group responsible for fixing strained race relations in this country, maybe...just maybe...black people and white people should work together to do it. the difficult thing is that it must start with the individual, and has to spread to the institutional level from there. you can't initiate the fix at the institutional level because then people start feeling like they've been left out of the conversation and start to resent being put in that position. Bun B (of UGK fame) has a great comment about this in the following video (which is also supremely fascinating):

It's all relative, isn't it?

ask a black person if it's all relative to them. you're not black. MIR has been trying to tell you about his experiences as a black man, but just because his truth doesn't mesh with your truth doesn't mean you should dismiss his experiences. there's more than one America.

Spectre is right

no, you're right - the past has no bearing on the present whatsoever.

The chinese, Irish, Italians and poles were all crap on. No race has ever received a welcoming committee, and all were generally despised. It is what it is.

Thank God those puritans decided to Brexit king George's feudal system 240 years ago, or we'd all be mired as serfs like the losers in Europe are today.

You really don't get it, do you? The police were generally the front line of terror and intimidation during Jim Crow. Is it any wonder that black Americans distrust the police? Is it too far-fetched to think that when blacks see other blacks profiled, mistreated, abused and killed by police, it brings up the spectre of a time when they were barely viewed as people, let alone citizens?

Nobody likes whiners. Particularly when the whiners are given all sorts of head starts and special treatments, and continue to bitch about stuff that already happened and can't be changed and that nobody alive was responsible for anyways.

Non-delusional non-sociopaths realize all individuals start in different places and life isn't fair.

Probably what King George was thinking when all those goddamn colonists started bitching about those "unfair" taxes they were paying.

Are there statistics or studies that prove that blacks are treated unfairly at a disproportionate rate?  Genuinely curious.

The statistics tell the opposite story, hence the criticism. Treysolid is, ironically, the Parrott he's accusing others of being

The stats show that whites receive disproportionately unfair treatment from law enforcement??? Please, do share, oh oppressed one.

I think what KSU is missing is that the police shootings usually go without prosecution or even reprimand.

KSUW is missing a lot. By choosing to take the name of the organization/movement "Black Lives Matter" hyper-literally, he's constructed a paradigm whereby he can alter the conversation by injecting talking points that distract from BLM's main issue (disproportionately unfair treatment at the hands of law enforcement). Of course, he (as an individual) isn't doing any of this, he's merely parroting talking points he's heard through various media sources.

Is it really a thing that people believe BLM cannot protest police violence until they protest/solve black on black crime?

but before BLM solves black-on-black crime, they need to find a cure for heart disease (the largest cause of death for AAs).

So we're walking back from the celebrity softball game yesterday through pioneer square approaching occidental park, which is a big public space.  A guy runs up on my buddy and they apparently know each other and are asking what they're each doing down there.  The guy is saying that as he's one of the few black guys at work, they've got him down there to undercover mingle in the protest and see what's going down but that he can't press people too much or it'd be entrapment.  I remember that my buddy has a friend who's a cop so this must be him.  Ironically, I'm undercover as a person who'd be impressed by his ruse.  So he has to go do his thing and we keep going through where this so-called protest is, but there's maybe 10 people max that are even gathered and they're just chilling with a few signs.  Meanwhile the whole block is canvassed with cops in varying amounts of tactical gear, making us feel like we were walking through a war zone. 

The "protest" didn't make the news.

Also, next time you're participating in a #BLM rally and some random black guy starts chatting you up about turning up the protest, ignore him.

black-on-black entrapment. sickening.

That one is so silly.

http://fivethirtyeight.com/features/election-update-swing-state-polls-and-national-polls-basically-say-the-same-thing/

makes sense.  it doesn't much matter if hardcore dems hate trump more than they hated romney or if hardcore pubs hate clinton more than they hated obama.  their votes were already assumed.

the twist in the coming election is that so many dems and dem-leaning mods hate clinton and so many pubs and pub-leaning mods hate trump.

Clinton leading Trump in Kansas is surprising.

I'm not. The Brownback tenure has pushed a significant number of moderate Republicans over the center line.

You guys, Trump never said he had all the African Americans - he said he had the best African Americans. That 1% he has is obviously the top 1%.
