The US System IS racism.

Study it out.

It was obvious before but welcome to the party.

My takeaway was more that Americans really just don't give a fark about Americans.

Only in 'Murica could safety protocols literally designed to save you from dying be considered "Politically controversial"

Yes, racism is a huge part. But the MAGA movement, along with the pandemic, has shown just how selfish a large percentage of the population is. And yeah, the racism is a inherent part of that also. It's almost like one won't exist without the other.

Every month or so, I'll take the plunge into the Hill's comment section. I think I'll increase it to every few months.

No, it really did not.

The police gassing Americans last summer did.

Why the fark are the police not replaced and then arrested? I thoguht that the USA had elections for shiat. They aren't appointed, so recall them. I mean, here in Canada, epople who are appointed can be replaced easily when they fark up. I assume the USA elects officials so they can be replaced even easilyer. And war crimes against teenagers and shooting rubber bullets at families on their own porch seem like reasons to imprison cops. So... STOP BLAMING COVID FOR POLICE VIOLENCE.

Exactly this

It is just like any other disaster. They all expose this, but we do not do anything about it. re we going to do anything about it now? Probably not.

Lol. If you needed Corona to come to that realization, my only question would be; what flavor paste do you like to eat?

This. "We love America [but hate Americans]" is how I've mentally amended all of our jingoistic bullshiat.

Do ya hear that kind of rumbling sound? The high pitched voices whining and snowflaking out over the racism inherent in the system? That it doesn't exist? That the dems stated the KKK? That the war we all know and hate was about states rights?

Yeah. The derps just read the article. When they do it will be on hundreds of sites within minutes denying they are everything they are.

This is going to trigger them big time. It's a good week of whining at least.

Always remember so many people deemed essential were those with the least amount of protection, little voice, and had to keep going to work and all they got were semi sincere platitudes from people complaining how inconvenient theirs lives had become because they had to wear a mask or couldnt sit in a bar or restaurant.

It didn't "expose" shiat. this was merely another case study.

Let me know when you decide to do something about it rather than point it out and claim that pointing it out is solving it.

Oh, wait, do we need another study to find out how to improve the system? Maybe that will help rather than creating actual laws that target corporations.

You want to prove that the government works for everybody? Do something. Raise the minimum wage. Create labor laws with actual farking teeth. Enforce them. Jail corporate executives and franchise owners who flagrantly break labor laws.

I dare you.

To most people these days there latest bowel movement in racism.

If the US system is racist, we MUST destroy the whole farking system.  Burn it all to the ground and flush out the racists and drive them into the ocean, as a feast for the sharks.

Problem solved.

Ooh, he's acknowledged that racism exists, now the right wing are really gonna hate him.

The NonEssentials, should have been locked in their homes, enforced by the military.  That would have brought some equity to the country.  In April, the military should have swept across the nation, locking the non essential people in their homes.  Nobody but essentials should have been let out until we had Corona eradicated, from earth.  Not even for the non essentials to get groceries, they are by definition, non essential.  They should have stocked up before hand, as a non essential, they are not essential and can be sacrificed for the good of the collective.

Since we didn't do this, The President should issue an EO stripping voting rights from the non essentials for one whole presidential cycle.  To promote equity.

pastramithemosterotic: It wasn't obvious before?


Apparently not.

A lot of people seem to need obvious things like police killing black men to remind them that oh yeah, the system is racist, howabout that.

Every once in a while I like to pop into the local paper's facebook and simply post the word "racism." It's a good way to play "spot the racist" as a bunch of them trip over their dicks to yell all that crap at me and tell me I'm the real racist.

Well, racists are pieces of sh*t.  But you sound like a racist who's sore his racism is reviled and not as prevalent or acceptable as he'd hoped.

F*ck yourself, racist.

I abhor the racism that is causing various black people to assault Asian Americans.

Oh, now I'm supposed to believe VIRUSES are Racist too???

I suppose viruses go to Klan meetings and burn little tiny crosses. You need little TINY microphones to hear them drop the N-word, too!
