Reason User Banned (1 Week): Characterizing concerns surrounding racism as outrage
Outraged just to be outraged. Pathetic, honestly. Absolutely no information to go on whether she was correct about them or not and you just scream "Racism". Whether or not she broke company policy is irrelevant. That doesn't make it immoral and certainly not racist. The version of events you choose to believe are everybit a "hypothetical" as mine because you have absolutely not proof to the contrary. Not even Chipotle corpoate denies what she said. That's a fact.

NASA stopped the Apollo missions for a reason. They've been airbrushing photos of the lunar surface for decades. It's a common topic online, especially since the advent of YouTube has allowed people to see these images. A few people have come forward to share their own testimonies about what saw in the labs, where the original photos were processed.

EtcetEraThread Officer shoots, kills armed security guard outside south suburban bar
Reason User Banned (Permanent): History of defending and dismissing police brutality. Previous infraction for similar behaviour. Account in junior phase.
It's important to take into account witness statements. There are issues at play such as whether the uniform is clearly identifiable and marked. The other side is the lighting conditions and positioning of the security guard/suspect and responding officers and whether such, if any, marking were identifiable to them. A note on uniforms. For example, when I type my reports while on routine patrol, I will state I am working in full uniform and driving a marked police vehicle. That is different when, for example, I am serving a search warrant and am not wearing a full uniform. There I will notate that I am wearing a modified tactical uniform which clearly state police in large bold white print on the front and back. The point here is in how the courts address search and seizure. Lawful commands from a clearly marked law enforcement officer is hard to negate when they are in full uniform. It alleviates any issues of uncertainty or taint. To draw back to the point at the top of the page, I would need to see what entails a uniform and whether it's clearly identifiable. Again, officers are responding - with lights and siren - to a chaotic and ongoing scene where an active shooter is reported. Radios are loud, sirens are loud, driving to scene with a hot call causes a massive adrenaline rush. Hot calls will involve a multitude of duplicate 911 calls reporting varying information. There is a lot to dissect here.

I guess I never really considered online bullying as anything impactful unless you know the person directly. If you wear a costume (any kind of costume for the sake of argument) out in public I don't think you deserve to be bullied, but you have to be at least mentally prepared to the fact that other people will freak out. That's how society functions...

EtcetEraThread "Your Lyft driver is 93 minutes away" eat a fucking dick
Red Text Mod edit: edited out personal information
Context I scheduled a Lyft pickup at 12PM or so, so the driver can take me home from work at around 9. Fee is like $9 for what amounts to a 10 minute or so drive which is cool. High time for me to go home and I get the message in the OP. This driver is all the way in fucking Columbus GA coming to pick me up for a $10 drive that I gotta wait for an hour and a half I cancelled and got another driver within the span of 5 minutes, free. But now I'm paying more due to the rate changing as the day passes. Its not the money I'm mad about but the fact that I probably got to wait another day to air a grievance/complaint out with Lyft about the poor driver curation (because Lyft doesn't have a traditional call line for customer service and I got put in a ticket for a response.) So yeah I'm big mad rn

EtcetEraThread White fragility and you: An important step in combating racism
Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Rationalizing racism, Inflammatory false equivalence, Account in junior phase
But let's get hypothetical here. If someone (say centre in politics, so not completely right wing) is blind to their racism, say that they just can't understand why their behaviour is racist, calling them out on it won't help them in the long term. They're going to get on the defensive and likely have on social media alt rights who defend them. So there's a likelihood they start associating with alt right people more and more, because that group is willing to accept them. Something needs to happen (I don't claim to have the answer, I think it's worth discussing) where one can reach out and convince them to act differently. I don't know if finding common ground may be starting point, but I truly believe that people who wouldn't necessarily be alt right or vote Trump now are behaving that way because they have fragility and the alt right prey on that in offering a place to belong. Personally I would feel I wasn't racist if I criticised Israel on their stance toward palestine and someone called me anti semitic. I'd personally not turn to the alt right, but I'd side with anyone who defended me.

How is one side shutting up and just listening both ways? Also maybe if people stated things more toward this country rather than just, white people. Unless you believe black people only experience racism from white people. Probably stop referring to "white people" as a monolithic group would be a good start. I'd say drawing a hard line between people in this country based just on skin color is not going to help start any conversation.
