and is transgender, tweeted that he stands with the trans, nonbinary and people of color
I don’t think being transgender and non-binary is equivalent to being a so-called person of color. Plenty of people of color have very traditional views about gender, sex, and marriage. Dave Chappell being proof. But to white liberals like Eliot page, only people of color who remain faithful to the plantation are people of color. Notice how Dave Chappell is expressing his views in the form of irony and satire, yet it doesn’t register to the white liberal that these views are also views of a person of color that are just as valid. Apparently these folks have a very limited idea of what a person of color is. This reminds me exactly of Biden’s thinking: if you don’t embrace the radical lgbtq…. agenda then you’re not a person of color. So I reiterate: being transgender and/or non-binary is not the equivalent to being a person of color. The LGBTQ’s are pimping the black struggle for their own cause. Racists!

No, the criminal justice system disproportionately imprisons people of color. Letting Cosby out is part of the anti-racist work necessary to correct the imbalance.

Single and with three children ranging from 5 to 13, she worried that adding a baby now would take time, food, money and space away from her three children. She doesn't have a job, and without help from groups offering a safe abortion, she said, she probably would have sought another way to end her pregnancy.
“If you can’t get rid of the baby, what’s the next thing you’re going to do? You’re going to try to get rid of it yourself. So I’m thinking: ‘What could I do? What are some home remedies that I could do to get rid of this baby, to have a miscarriage, to abort it?’ And it shouldn’t be like that. I shouldn’t have to do that. I shouldn’t have to think like that, feel like that, none of that.
“We have to be heard. This has got to change. It’s not right.”
That says it all right there: American woman get away from meehe

Wilson, of the Children’s Defense Fund, suggested a threefold strategy: Adopt new gun legislation to strengthen background checks and incentivize safe storage of weapons; invest in social services such as after-school programs and mental health support for young people; and create more economic opportunity, including summer jobs.
This is the same repetitive approach that has led to the current situation. In the first prong, it is suggested that people who haven’t committed a crime are responsible for the surge in deadly violence. The law abiding gun owners who use guns for various reasons from hunting to collecting. Everything except commit crimes of violence against other people. These people are at fault while the person who breaks in houses and steals guns and sells them or uses them in a drive by that accidentally kills innocent children is themself absolved of any culpability. And another thing, it’s absurd to think criminals shooting it out in the streets are concerned with background checks. The last two prongs are classic democratic talking points. Unfortunately it still gets the dems the desired effect from swaths of adherents. I remember being a kid in public school and it was the same thing: invest money in more social programs, more after school programs, more economic opportunity. Despite increases in all of those, we haven’t moved forward. It’s time for elected officials to shut up and do their jobs and lock people up regardless of the optics.

It doesn’t matter to me anymore. If Biden really won, I get to say to the people who voted for him, I told you do! If the election was stolen, I get to say, yay Trump won. So either way, I’m good. But Biden is the most popular president Accor the numbers. Let’s go Brandon!

I would wager that Biden’s committed more crimes as senator than Trump has as president. This is just more of the spiteful-ness from the dems. They were humiliated in 2016 and plenty of times during Trump’s presidency. If the media played fair, I’d bet Biden is more crooked than Trump. 50 plus years in Congress, Yeah right. Same with Pelosi. This is nothing more than democrats’ spiteful-ness and nastiness to try and redeem themselves. In the meantime, refugee increase, illegal immigration increase, pandemic increase, crime increase, failing students increase, inflation increase, cost of living increase. And these smooth-brained people actually want to talk about deflection. How the democrats try gnawing on a different bone and get off of Trump’s.

Yeah! It must have been all those welcoming white liberal teachers in formerly white schools and the hospitable white students causing the black students to perform poorly.
You have a point. But then again, the Little Rock 9 had better grades than most American students today of all stripes.

Um, no. The answer is not to gut an already underfunded district by taking away more funding. The answer is to make sure that underfunded districts, which are overwhelmingly districts attended by minority students, are funded as well as the sub-urban white districts.
Try telling that recycled nonsense walking. Millions have been thrown at inner city schools for decades. So much so that’s it’s not even an issue today. Hence all the crt and woke curricula. They’re scrambling for abstract notions to explain away their failure as educators. It’s simple the current way doesn’t work. Yet you ramble on with same talking points since the 60s despite democrats being in charge of it all. What else do you want or need? You’ve received millions in funding and have your people positioned in places of decision making. It’s simple. Stop funding public schools according to property taxes collected. There’s enough money put in the treasury by the people to cut parents a check to fund the education. Set up a licensing board like medical and law bar associations. Force teachers into competing and to perform and to get the results. But nah. You’re way is so much better. It’s worked for decades and the students have the grades to prove it.

White parents took their kids out of public schools wholesale and with them the revenue each school gets.
exactly why vouchers are best. Make all vouchers of equal amount so parents in low property value neighborhoods can still shop around for better schools in their neighborhoods. The system today is that schools rely on public funding as revenue. The students are taught by members of the teacher’s union; in other words, government bureaucrats. This funding is then handed back to the democrats in the form of donations. In return, teachers keep their jobs despite the abysmal performance of their students. Equal vouchers eliminates the racism and the system. How can government officials explain openly giving one group less funding in the face of another? In today’s world? I don’t think so.

They we’re taught by black teachers who enforced rigorous academic standards. Not the low expectations of the white liberal establishment.

It hasn't worked that way. Charter schools are privately run and set their own curriculum. They do not do better than public schools. The whole voucher movement grew out of school integration. I lived this myself. When public schools were desegregated white parents pulled their kids out of public schools in droves and enrolled them in these brand new private schools that popped up seemingly overnight. These schools were pretty much 100% white.
it’s not the 60’s anymore. The voucher program is far superior. I was also one of those kids—who had to stand out at the bus stop in the morning darkness of February to get bussed across town to fill some racial quota instead of going to the school down the block.
And looking at statistics, black kids did better in school pre-desegregation. I only say that, not to praise segregation, but to say it’s appalling to claim that black kids need to be in classrooms with white kids to succeed. Now we have white liberals teaching black kids with the hard bigotry of low expectations. So your argument is outdated and wrong. Where would dems be if they couldn’t pull up Jim Crow every other minute.

Glad I'm not a Canadian citizen, would hate to be pushed like that.
One wonders where the US would be about know if the general public had something approached basic scientific literacy?
Exactly. Time for America to cancel public schools and switch to the school voucher program. Force these schools into competition with one another, then the quality of educators will go up, parents will be directly involved with their children’s education and more concerned since they’ll be responsible for funding their children’s education , children will be more inclined to behave and take education more seriously if they face the possibility of squandering their school money. It’s a win win. But alas… the democrats!

This is bogus. Let people decide for themselves whether or not to listen to R.Kelly. Like it or not, the guy has put out some good songs. I tussle with the fact he’s a pervert but some of those songs rock nonetheless. But that should be my decision.

in Atlanta, for years seen as America's hip-hop capital.
Lol. I’d call Atlanta the graveyard of hip hop. They mostly killed it. 99% of Atlanta rappers are whack. Non-lyrical “crunk” music. New York is the capital of hip hop. Just like Jamaica is the capital of reggae. Mary J blidge is not hip hop. She ushered in the watered-down r and b garbage “hip hop”. Snoop is the most overrated rapper ever. Slow sleezy voice that always talks about drugs, sex and violence. This lineup is further proof that so-called hip hop is nothing but America’s pop music in the new millennium. No dj, no breakdancing—or an evolved version of it. No graffiti art. And no lyrical gymnastics on the mic. I’ll be happy to miss this lineup. Hip hop has been dead for decades.

According to the figures you provided, 18,000 of all Texas rape cases result in a pregnancy. Texas performed about 15,000 abortions per year or about 6% of the American total. Not all were just state residents.
ok. How many abortions were for non-rape?
-4 ( +1 / -5 )
It's not an opinion, it is a fact.
No it’s not. It’s a human being in the beginning stages of life. Abortion kills the growing life and future potential. Call it what you want to ease your mind. Blobs, groups of cells. Whatever Stretch your imagination as far as it’ll go.
But there are many situations when a woman isn't ready for a baby and that's why they have a constitutional right to have an abortion. And I'm sure it's not an easy decision, but not one for anybody else to make except the woman involved.
Yes. I agree. But because “a woman wasn’t ready for baby” is an infantile and appalling excuse at the the same. Maybe the person wasn’t ready to have sex? Nah, it’s all about hedonism with you folks.
but not one for anybody else to make except the woman involved.
If the woman is a victim of rape, then of course the rapist has no say in the matter. But if it’s because “a woman isn’t ready for a baby” then the father absolutely has a say in the matter.
-3 ( +2 / -5 )
But if so few rape victims become pregnant why is it a problem for the state to allow them abortions and also allow the rapists access to those born children.
I disagree with that as well. Especially the latter part. I think a rape victim or an incest victim should be able to have a resultant pregnancy terminated. But those are 1% of the time. That does not justify the numbers of aborted HUMAN blobs, muck, group of cells, fetuses, etc.

A fetus is not a baby until it can support itself outside of the womb. In Texas, there are 18,000 rapes every year. America has an incest problem.
A quick google search revealed this:
Just 1% of women obtain an abortion because they became pregnant through rape, and less than 0.5% do so because of incest, according to the Guttmacher Institute.
You can’t use 1% to argue the 99% of your case. That’s absurd. At least you can be honest like the poster above:
Yes because they are against women having fun in life
I would be understanding of women getting an abortion due to rape or incest. But that’s not what’s happening .
A fetus is not a baby until it can support itself outside of the womb

Haha! I knew it! But sorry. Life doesn’t work that way. There’s consequences. You don’t get to kill your baby because you want responsibility-free enjoyment. I know adulting is hard. You have no moral standing against white christians with that rationale. I’ll take there side every time over yours.

So, do tell us why religious institutions should not pay tax.
I wouldn’t necessarily be against that. But for argument’s sake religious institutions contribute a lot to charities and do things like clothe, house, and feed the homeless. They offer mental and emotional support to members of their communities. They provide moral guidance and education. I’m not talking about the charlatans on tv who are clearly frauds and evil people. The ones with private jets and mansions and stuff. I wish those people could suffer something more severe than taxes. But your comity churches, synagogues and mosques, no.

Women can't get abortions in Texas and can't get adequate OBY/GYN services there either. I
You people kill me with your euphemisms and conflations of healthcare with killing fetuses. And women were barely getting those services anyway. Former planned parenthood clinic manager testified publicly that they are instructed to push abortion on the young mothers and to devote little time to healthcare services. You’re just as much as a religious fanatic. You’re anti-religion has become your religion. You attempt to proselytize all day. You ridicule white christians the way the devout ridicule the pagans. You remind me of the religious zeal of the ancient Aztecs with your desire for abortion.
