    The primary storyline did what the headline suggested it would: it spoke to moments in history where people stood up for black people against ignorance. Heyer is a recent example of a person standing up against ignorance.
    First let me say, my question was snarky, apologies. I appreciate you still answering.

    my point, Heather's tragic death is being used by opportunistic click baiters and political agenda pushers.
    the author chose to place Heather's name in the headline along with a picture of a girl "celebrating her life and sacrifice" by holding a sign that reads, "Trump victim". Blame trump for this supposed rise in white supremacy and Nazism but blaming him for this death is distasteful to put it nicely.
    The author makes great points about whites standing against racist but the healine the picture and opening paragraphs denigrate and detract from the storyline. For those reasons I question whether the author wants to push an agenda or tell a story about whites standing with oppressed blacks.

    Maybe (your last sentence).

    I think Trump and the recent surge in white supremacy demonstrations are intertwined though: one cannot deny the connection. And not only is Trump a catalyst for the surge in this vile obscenity... he is lending support to it by promoting it as an acceptable belief system versus condemning it.

    He is responsible to some degree. 
    100% yes. He is culpable due to the tremendous influence and platform he has been given. The vile nature of his proclamations has certainly ushered in a resurgence of David Duke and his mouthbreathing followers. Bannon and Miller being part of tRump's inner circle is proof that he is either one of them, or is being heavily influenced by them. Either way - deplorable.

    Anybody ever think that having a black president for 8 years really chapped some people and that's where it started or rather gained more momentum?

    Yes. I'm not so sure that is 'where it started or rather gained more momentum'... but a lot of motivated racists- from the extreme idiots to the mild variety- exercised their voting privileges and ticked the box with Donald's name.

    I should have been clearer as I know it's never went away.

    Had the movement gained momentum during Obamas years?

    good question? the logical conclusion would be yes, or at min it should have gained under Obama. If you watch or read the alt-news they'll telling us it's gaining under Trump because they feel "emboldened". My impression of kkk and white supremacists they are by nature emboldened, they don't hide their feelings, they aren't timid and afraid to let it be known who they are.
    If there is a true rise in white supremacy, is it because of Trump rhetoric, Trumps cabinet or because of the alt-medias portrayal of Trump as a racist?
    Im certain that the alt-medias war with trump, the medias attack Trump style is used as a recruitment tool and rally cry by white supremacists leaders.

    Cops shoot unarmed black man
    now is not the time to talk about race!

    Mentally ill person shoots up church
    now is not the time to talk about health care or access to guns!

    Woman gets run over by a nazi
    now is not the time to talk about white supremacists!

    When do you suggest we address this societal ills?  When would be convenient time/day for you to defend nazis?

    you make quite a bit of assumptions there, too lengthy to list. your conclusions drawn are far fetched and your logic used does not equate. I will only answer alt-intelligent questions today. it's Friday and I've already wasted too many brain cells this week on alt-stupid questions not to mention my cranial lobes are still sore from playing virtual twister over the last couple days.

    Just so we're clear:
    1) outrageous thing happens
    2) people and media express, document and discuss their outrage over outrageous thing that occurred
    3) JC is confused and doesn't understand why people are so outraged about outrageous thing that occurred.  thinks maybe we should all settle down and try to forget about outrageous thing that happened and perhaps discuss when time is more appropriate.

    The primary storyline did what the headline suggested it would: it spoke to moments in history where people stood up for black people against ignorance. Heyer is a recent example of a person standing up against ignorance.
    First let me say, my question was snarky, apologies. I appreciate you still answering.

    my point, Heather's tragic death is being used by opportunistic click baiters and political agenda pushers.
    the author chose to place Heather's name in the headline along with a picture of a girl "celebrating her life and sacrifice" by holding a sign that reads, "Trump victim". Blame trump for this supposed rise in white supremacy and Nazism but blaming him for this death is distasteful to put it nicely.
    The author makes great points about whites standing against racist but the healine the picture and opening paragraphs denigrate and detract from the storyline. For those reasons I question whether the author wants to push an agenda or tell a story about whites standing with oppressed blacks.
    Let the family grieve awile before trotting out the corps.

    Cops shoot unarmed black man
    now is not the time to talk about race!

    Mentally ill person shoots up church
    now is not the time to talk about health care or access to guns!

    Woman gets run over by a nazi
    now is not the time to talk about white supremacists!

    When do you suggest we address this societal ills?  When would be convenient time/day for you to defend nazis?
    you make quite a bit of assumptions there, too lengthy to list. your conclusions drawn are far fetched do not equate. I will only answer alt-intelligent questions today. it's Friday and I've already wasted too many brain cells this week on alt-stupid questions not to mention my cranial lobes are still sore from playing virtual twister over the last couple days.



    Just so we're clear:
    1) outrageous thing happens
    2) people and media express, document and discuss their outrage over outrageous thing that occurred
    3) JC is confused and doesn't understand why people are so outraged about outrageous thing that occurred.  thinks maybe we should all settle down and try to forget about outrageous thing that happened and perhaps discuss when time is more appropriate.
    just so we're clear:

    nice job...I'm learn'in ya!
    I appreciate a mix of humor, these boards lack that mix. I'm all for some hijinx every now and again.

    Then the guy with the Kaepernick jersey comes beetling in there to help the guy. Was that the idiot? Of all the fantastic jerseys a guy could buy... you get that one?

    Eesh.

    It could have been worse ... just ask this Canucks fan after they lost the Stanley Cup ...

    What it lacks in initial impact is made up by the explosion going off right in the jimmies

    JC...

    You get shredded on here more often than not... and I do not agree with you more often than not... but I want to say (regardless of how things might go between us in the future)... that I don't think you're a horrible person.

    I actually think you're alright.

    okay, after last night I was concerned that maybe we wouldn't have a future together, at least there's hope.

    speaking of futures, look at baby face Borden
