I mean it's not like there is much to discuss. Trump is pretty straight forward currupt. Might as well see were letters will take his crazy

So NOW leftist liberal trash care about the constitution. Do they mention how Hillary and Bill received millions from several Islamic states? Or how about Uranium1? Oh no comment there either I see. What about the 4th amendment when they were spying on Trump's campaign? Anything about that? No? What a a surprise.

Can you give examples of them receiving money from foreign entities while holding office?

No, come on. If you are going to engage his trolling, don’t completely fall for it. He wants to change the subject because this news destroys so much of what he usually says. Ignore his attempt to redirect you to what he wants to discuss and stay on topic.

Better yet, just fucking ignore him entirely and quit responding to him

But I find engaging him entertaining.

I'm trying to remember? What was the political message in Solo? We need better gun control because Han will always shoot first?

Agree with your overall point, Rufio, but I feel like it also gives people an out via ignorance. It's commonly known that calling black people monkeys/apes is historically racist. So if you're going to use the term and don't want to come off racist you either need to add some context diamond or rogan or, if you can't find a better way of saying what you are trying to say.

If your honest belief is that a speaker was ignorant, you should fault the speaker for negligence. Not racism. There is a world of difference between the two.

An accusation of racism, if beleived, is a career death sentence. That sentence should be reserved for people who actually have bad intent.

We shouldn’t let the Twitter mob impose career death sentences on everyone who accidentally misspeaks. That just emboldens people who like to intentionally twist the meaning of innocent statements.

But again, I think it’s likely that Roseanne did have a racist intent. My point is separate from the specifics of this case.

Imho it depends on the level of ignorance. There is no reason for an adult not to know that calling a black person a monkey is racist.

Now it's possible Roseanne didn't know she was black which makes the first part of the statement much more prejudice. She thought she was a Muslim so she decided to call her a terrorist. That part has very little wiggle room.

I understand "colonizer" just fine. What I don't understand is why it's not racism when used to describe white people as its an insult based on their race, and as AP said, indicates a moral superiority because of their race.

Can you explain that?

My explanation is a few post up. AP makes a good argument though why it's racist. You should try and do that some times. My rebuttal would be the fact that morality is subjective and can change so colonizer does not have to be related to race. Calling Trump a colonizer, for example, has nothing to do with his race when he's going around talking about taming continents.

So when a black person refers to a white person as "colonizer" I guess they are admiting their inferiority to white people? And is that racism against themself? Even tho its used as a slight, motivated by the white persons race, it's not racist? How does this work.

It seems racism and racially insensitive are on this kind of racist spectrum. Is there some kind "racism meter" one can use to determine what is racist or racially insensitive or whatever else there is?

You know colonizer and slave aren't the opposite of each other right?

Yes but racism, by definition, is the belief of racial superiority. So for an insult to be racist it would have be used in a way to show superiority. Calling someone colonizer at most is racially insensitive.
