Minorities are getting the same treatment they hand out to disadvantaged whites.  Their content for these people is a large part of the reason Columbine happened and how the gunmen were recruited by white supremecists.

Ya know, slavery has been around for thousands of years and I'm sure continues to this day. Joseph Brant owned slaves, but, his statue isn't being torn down or painted. Brant County, Brantford, and the numerous other names, aren't going to be changed. So, you either tear down all statues of slavers, or, you don't.

Africans had slaves. Indigenous peoples of North and South America had slaves. Japanese had slaves. So, IMHO, you cannot erase history, only live with it. 

So, before people start protests, statue defacing, and rioting, they should look into their own past.

Pat Hickey asking Claude if we'll get to see Kulak at some point. Claude tells him as soon as he's available, we'll see him on the ice.

Pat to Claude after: But he is still alive?

None of these people thought they'd be opening a can of worms when favored tearing down statues of Confederate soldiers.

Ok..Absolutely true but ya know what? Not one slave was there as a mathematician or physicist or philosopher.

Meaning you know who needs to pay taxes? Thems who make more than 10 of the same damn thing or rent ten rooms the same or sell ten albums the same music and such like.

To my mind...

At a Black Lives Matter protest in Iowa last summer, a reporter was peppered sprayed and arrested last summer for failing to leave along with the rest of the protesters and is now going on trial.  Amnesty International is now taking up the case.
