Yes, I am saying this is typical. The general attitude is that white people (males especially) are inherently racist and that black people can't be racist. Name one black person that has committed violent crimes that has been hit with hate crimes prosecution. Not a single one. Yet if a white person (male) does something to a black person, it is classified as a hate crime. Rodents like Sharpton and Jackson make sure of it.

According to FBI statistics for 2014 (the latest year available), 23.2 % of hate crime offenders were Black or African American. Note that this is much higher than their percentage of the overall population.

I await your recantation of the "not a single one" statement.

Birdguy1979 has a narrative. He's made up his mind. He will look for confirmatory data. You can't let the facts get in the way of a nice story.

He's also very good at reducing complex issues to black and white (no pun intended). No shades of gray in his world.

Someone who steals government files can be guilty of treason, if they are an American citizen or guilty of espionage if they're not.

She did neither steal, nor with intent hand them over.

I'm not saying she wasn't stupid and woefully dismissive of the law, because she was in many areas, this just wasn't one of them.

OK, but let's say you are a government employee with a security clearance of some type and you leave documents open on your desk when you know that people will be present who dot have proper security clearance to see them, that has to be in the same category as what Clinton did. Not giving them to some unknown enemy. Right?

Yet that's not what Birdguy said.

Edited to add; this is what he wrote:

It is because of bleeding heart crats that we have a system that actually says that minorities (Specifically blacks) cannot be racist or guilty of a hate crime. Open your eyes.

Trumps floating daughter Ivanka for vice president.

You just can’t make this stuff up. I mean you can if you just snorted a couple of lines of cocaine...but otherwise, no.

What a disingenuous headline. It's Trump's son who made these comments. Eric Trump did not father Ivanka.

Indeed Donald didn't say his daughter should be vp, though he's said and implied in numerous occasions he would totally bone Ivanka but she's his daughter.

If those quotes in the article are accurate then Eric Trump is a chip off the old block.

Quote:“I agree, right? She’s got the beautiful looks,” Eric Trump said. “She’s got — she’s smart. She’s smart smart smart smart. ... She’s certainly got my vote.”

Quote:“I mean he’s getting calls every five minutes from real people, the best people,” Eric Trump said.

Hillary Clinton is now tied nationally with Trump in a new New York Times/CBS News poll (which has a liberal bias of +0.6 according to 538) and managed to achieve even lower favorability ratings than Trump.

Can we worry about a Trump victory now?
