EtcetEraThread 2020 Democratic Presidential Primary | OT | Bernie hires Sirota after he had written articles attacking rivals
Reason User Banned (Permanent): Rationalizing racism over a series of posts, previous severe infractions
What people don't get when they say Trump was voted due to racism or due to economic anxiety is that racism is frequently stoked from misplaced economic anxiety. Briahna's point with her admittedly very clumsy analogy is that both a white and black person may take that offer for $100 and both may hesitate or not hesitate for different reasons, none of which changes the fact that BOTH race and economic need are playing a role. We consistently find in polling that people are more likely to vote against social programs or for cuts if it's framed as benefiting certain minorities and less likely if it's race neutral, and yeah that's totes racist, but the racist belief that minorities are abusing social programs stem not primarily from malicious intent to harm but rather misplaced economic anxiety about of those limited resources. It's still racism, sure, but that doesn't mean that racism isn't born from an economic fear that others are taking what's theirs.

Reason Use banned (permanent): dismissing racism
I don't view people as binary constructs. Racism is taught, is not inherent, and is expressed across a wide spectrum. The fear that's often used to instill racism is usually based on perpetuated ignorance. While the blind total hatred form of racism is definitely still a thing (and sadly increasing as of late), I don't believe it's as binary and commonplace as it was during the civil rights era. That kind of bigotry these days is mostly reserved for the lgbtq community.

Reason User Banned (Duration Pending): Defending racism
Yup. This thread is pretty aggravating to read but that's par for the course. Unconscious racial bias is a form of racism but not all people with unconscious racial bias are racist. But fuck nuance and empathy, Bernie is the devil am I right *eyeroll*

So restaurants should be allowed to refuse service if they find out a patron had an abortion and that makes a server uncomfortable?
