when you call out racism it isn't playing any card. It's actually calling out racism.

No. This term is hurled for any perceived slight or criticism of people of color. It's the theater of the absurd. It breeds bitterness and polarization, not a spirit of reasonableness in confronting our difficult issues of the day. It cripples the conversation. No one wants to discuss the matter with you after you use that word.

Could you summarize your video?

Again, I'm not bothering to open a random video looking for something that starts at 16:52.

Today the official spokespersons for the new Democratic party appears to be a Bronx born Puerto Rican background person, a Muslim, one who appears to be white race, and what appears to be a black.

They call themselves "people of color" precisely so they can throw the race card.

oh begging your pardon, Mayum, but killing a bunch of Mexicans here legally buying school supplies at Walmart isn't a "perceived" racist act, it's a real racist crime. Especially when the reason it was done was written down by the perpetrator.

It has nothing whatsoever to do with President Trump.

Or you out there putting the El Paso massacre on Elizabeth Warren since the killer was a Warren supporter? I thought not.

You are the biggest hypocrite on this forum.

Actually, that was the Dayton shooter. The El Paso shooter has been pegged a white supremacist because of the racist views he had and rightfully so. However what the left won't tell you is that he was also as much a eco-terrorist as he felt that the country was not doing enough to curtail the population.

Quote:
Yet a number of motivations cited by the suspected attacker sit outside the typical remit of racist MAGA fearmongering. An entire paragraph of the manifesto is dedicated to environmental degradation and Malthusian claims about the need to “get rid of enough people” to protect ever dwindling resources. The author cites the Christchurch shooter’s lengthy manifesto, titled “The Great Replacement,” as an inspiration, reiterating the paranoid fears of demographic shift and white decline. The Christchurch shooter self-identified as an “eco-fascist,” writing, “there is no nationalism without environmentalism.”

He also mentioned that his actions should not be attributed to Trump as his views predated Trump.

While I disagree with much of the authors assessment of the situation, the fact that they were at least willing to put in the parts of the manifesto that were not favorable to the left, I will give them credit for being open minded in that respect.
