    Lol yes I'm sure most nyc childcare workers consider BLM to be "insanity"

    Can you set the scene for us? Like what kind of school is this? What neighborhood? One of the super fancy ones? How did they introduce the 1619 project - need tips to be able to export this curriculum to my kids school.

    Thanks in advance cxbby.

    When did I say the school considered BLM insanity? That’s the second time you are putting words in my mouth.

    Depicting graphic details of a murder to a class of 4 year olds is insanity, or at minimum not age appropriate. Which the administrator strongly agreed with us on.

    What’s the point of your line of questioning? Would you like my kid’s picture and home address as well? Sorry man, we don’t give that stuff out to creeps online.

    Honestly I think you're lying to us.

    It's been known to happen on the internet

    Thanks for clarifying.

    I’m not. So I appreciate that you would agree that it’s ridiculous.

    Late response since I haven't been on CF since my post. But do you understand what defunding police means? It means to redirect the some money and invest it into professional help for when situations arises such as suicide or a heated moment where a professional counselor is able to talk down the suspect instead of going guns blazing. Defunding the police doesn't mean to stop the police force, it's to help the police in situations where professional help is better. In some parts of our country, we already have that and is working great.

    Is that what the autonomous zones in Portland and Seattle were for, to "help the police"?

    i really didn't need another reason to dislike Tilman. shipping off first round picks for pocket cash was enough. But the fact that he's MAGA guy also sucks.

    I also have visceral hatred towards anyone that doesn't agree with my political views. If you don't think like me you are clearly wrong and racist.

    Lol strawman much? Who said anything about "visceral hatred" towards Tilman or anyone being "wrong and racist"? Could this be a wrong and racist Tilman supporter projecting his insecurities?

    NBA Owners Have Donated More To Republicans During 2020 Election Cycle
    SEP 25, 2020 11:14 AM

    [​IMG]
    John Gonzalez of The Ringer reported in detail on the political contributions of NBA owners. The NBA has attempted to have their messaging align with social justice causes such as racial equality and police reform, but many have been skeptical of their motives and beliefs.

    An extensive review of Federal Election Commission records reveal NBA owners have made more than $28 million in political donations to various causes and candidates since January 1, 2015 with 53.4 percent ($14.9 million) going to Republican politicians and PACs, while 43.1 percent (over $12 million) was directed to Democrats.

    Connie Ballmer, wife of Steve Ballmer, made a $7 million contribution in April to Everytown for Gun Safety, a nonprofit advocating for gun control and serves as an NRA watch group.

    During the 2020 election cycle beginning in 2019, The Ringer found that 80.9 percent of political donations by NBA owners have gone to Republicans and Republican causes, 18.4 percent to Democrats, and 0.7 percent to nonpartisan issues when you exclude the Ballmer' $7 million gun control contribution. After the Everytown for Gun Safety contribution, nine of the next 10 top recipients of NBA governor donations this cycle have been GOP candidates or causes.

    Five owners have directly contributed to Donald Trump or his PACs (Dan DeVos, James Dolan, Tilman Fertitta, Julianna Holt, and Jim Buss.

    Of the 10 owners who have donated the most money since 2015, seven directed more than 75 percent of their political contributions to Republicans.

    Marc Lasry, Ted Loenosis, Wesley Edens, Vivek Randive, Jeanie Buss and Wyc Grousbeck have donated solely to Democrats.

    The owners’ widespread financial support of the GOP, however, has not insulated the league from being criticized by the Trump administration. Trump attacked the NBA for its TV ratings during the restart and for becoming “a political organization.”

    Mark Cuban was the only owner to speak with The Ringer on the record. Cuban noted he does not donate to politicians or PACs because “I strongly value my independence.”

    “I talk to owners and players who are ‘conservative’ when it comes to financial issues but simultaneously very ‘liberal’ when it comes to social issues,” Cuban wrote via email.

    In 2019, Steve Kerr said there’s an understanding among players and coaches that “most owners are very conservative.” While that generally hasn't been an issue in the past, Kerr thought “maybe it will become one.”
