    Don’t think that changes the gist of his posts

    You missed his point, he wants you to stop quoting me.

    Of course it doesn't.

    Just reduces the frequency of having to see it.

    I doubt you or I are going to change his opinions or prejudices.

    Give ignoring them a try?

    I thought we already sorted out the racist fucks with the Treyvon Martin shit and then 4 years of Drumpf. Blocking them is stupid, it's just like creating your own echo chamber. Calling them racist fucks over and over until they leave is much better..

    Would love to hear you explain their position, because they can’t seem to. It’s just “I went looking for racism and when I didn’t see it I interpreted that it was there”

    Never mind I had a small handful of posts in this thread before shitting on the racist idiots, all that matters is how hurt some feelings are with my last post failing to clearly define my stance on racism broadly and in the specific context of this thread.

    Knee jerk mob mentality is all over this place. I called it a circle jerk before and everyone is in here proving my point.

    You seem to like to challenge the democratic/liberal view, but your position isn’t one of neutrality and is belied from the statements highlighted above. That’s all.
    IAS needs to reread what he wrote and think hard on it.
    You OTOH seem quite cautious in your statements. As far as this current tangent, you may have misrepresented a detail of this story, but I’m not throwing you in the racist world for it.

    Only one person has the right to use deadly force in this whole ordeal. And that was Ahmaud Arbery. He got chased down and cornered by guys pointing guns at him. Text book definition of when you have the right to defend yourself. Even in left wing states. He has every right to kill those guys has he been armed. The three wannabe klansmen and those who support their actions are disingenuous racist assholes. That’s my opinion and I’m sticking to it.

    You started quoting me after he already called me racist out of the blue.

    How did I challenge the liberal view? I literally responded to a post asking about his prior burglary history and whether he was casing the joint with the facts as known (and said “he” instead of the prosecution). Responding to the question made me a racist because well, when your only tool is a hammer…

    My wife likes to check out buildings that are under construction. She can't help it, she's fascinated by them. I can understand the curiosity. She's also white as rice. I've never felt comfortable poking around uninvited which overrides my curiosity. Buildings are pretty fascinating. I'm also white as rice. So we have our white privilege. Nobody should have to die for taking a look see.

    I just stated specifically that I do not tag you as racist (& now here twice) — you want to argue with me about that?

    You literally stated “savior complexes” and “spittle started forming well before then”. The only condemnation I’m putting at your feet is that you don’t enter this conversation as a neutral party. Stop pretending you are an innocent bystander when you came in with an agenda to provoke “saviors” when you are playing a conservative “savior” in this scene. That’s the irony of your statements.
    Just my observation

    I’m not, I’m referring to MU.
    You quoted my responses to him AFTER he called me racist.

    Not every thought is serial or even connected.
    Parsing is sometimes useful.

    The video of him in the house under construction was made public after he was murdered and the homeowner made it clear that no crime was committed. Why is it relevant?

    I have not heard that the house was posted with No Trespassing signs. Have you?

    Yup. Especially when it all depends on the cards ya draw, whether you get a blank check to do it or not.
