    Yeah man, a friend of mine works in a highly conservative industry and despite these white guys making six figures for sitting on their azzes all day, driving around in company cars, buying lunch on their corporate cards regularly, and having fat pensions waiting for them, they can’t stop yapping about how Obama stirred up race relations, and how they feel as white men they are being oppressed throwing out the line how they are wrong color and that’s why they can’t get any higher up. It’s absolutely absurd.

    Kings are racist. Padres are pedophiles. And the Rockets are dicks.

    Just out of curiosity, what do you consider reliable and credible sources of news?

    Also, to claim that your Christian upbringing taught you all lives matter. Are you insinuating that other religions don't teach the same thing, or preach the same values? I don't know why religion is even being brought up.

    I'm just telling you the values I was brought with. (Bringing context) I'm certainly not judging other people's values or religion. BTW, more white people are wrongly killed by police than black people. We dont have a race issue, we have a cop issue. IMHO

    As this relates to me,

    You're incorrect.

    not really. is the issue not a murder infront of the world of George Floyd right now or is it everyone else in the neighborhood.

    it's a perfect analogy. you saying this is exactly what people are talking about that is part of the problem. you keep proving it in this thread

    What percentage of the population is white and what percentage of the population is black? How is that reflected in the chance of being a victim of police violence?

    What is the average income of a black family compared to a white family?

    There is certainly income inequality and a number of other factors that support that there is a racial problem in the USA.

    Since you're Christian spot Luke 15 bro. Parable of the Good Shepherd. Just cause he leaves the 99 for a bit to go help the 1 missing doesn't mean the 99 don't matter. He just needs to go help the one that needs it most. All lives don't matter till black lives matter.

    Old racists are better, staying off of Twitter and Facebook completely.

    Sometimes sjw overreach, other times Cancel Culture is going to catch the correct cod.

    I'd never heard about his politics or offensive remarks in the Kings org. Interesting.

    Have to admit, I've occasionally listened to a Kings game and I thought he did a decent game. Also heard him host the Jim Rome show a couple of times, which is really surprising in retrospect. I liked him hosting b/c he would talk sports, do interviews, and not do insider jokes and sound effects for 3 hours.

    "All Lives Matter" is a pretty stale retort in context. It's like going to the first judo move you learned in junior high but now you're a fat, middle-aged white guy with a back issue and nobody is even coming at you. They're trying to just have a conversation and you go to shoulder throw because it worked for you once in like 1988.

    The image that @Juxtaposed Jolt posted above was about perfect.
