I think we all agree. None of this would have happened if police shot him in the leg or if a social worker or community police were present. Now the only thing to do is burn down your neighborhood and loot businesses including Black-owned ones.

Even though I was raised an Angels fan in Dodger territory, I am happy for them as a Los Angelino. They were cheated twice over the past 4 years. Redemption!

Thus us just one of the reasons why Trump is such an awful human being and unfit for office.
As bad as being friends with a white supremacy leader, enforcing segregation and stereotyping Black people as being the same? Sounds like Biden is the perfect human being .

There is a reason why this article is unpopular than other articles with Trumps name in the Title. People here are scrambling to find excuses for Putin agreeing with Biden because he was their go-to mainstream mediocre excuse for the 2016 election win by Trump lol

Really? Tell us about these supposed salaries that the Olympians receive. How much are they on average?
They are called sponsors and some are in the millions of $.

As much as Adam Silver would like for things to go that way, as he has tried and failed in the past, he will remember that players have a lot more power than him. That's the way the basketball world is setup.
The NBA is also a business and when ratings decline, sponsors leave. When sponsors and fans leave, salaries decline. You think the players don't mind making millions less just to get their message across?

How dare the athletes use the platform that is using them.
....and paying their salaries. People who feel like they are being used can easily leave like normal people.

Go woke, go broke. Olympics are a business too. NBA ratings for the Championship were among the lowest in history and the commissioner realized this. So he told players next season that they can demonstrate on their own time but the BLM logo will be removed from the court as well as the social justice slogans on the jerseys. Sports are a way to unite no matter what the political or religious belief.

The polls are not going to be accurate because the US has a lot of undercover racists and bigots. They will be too shy or in denial to admit the real reasons why they support trump. One of this countries underlying values is prejudice.
A vote for Biden is a vote for the support of KKK, segregation and mass incarceration of African Americans and Numan voted for......drum roll.......

lol Biden is going to send social workers to de-escalate the virus. In fact, he might even ask the medical staff to shoot the virus in its leg.

Once again, he says he's the least racist person in this room.
Please post the list here of everything Trump has done racist. I bet they won't include being best buddies with KKK, pro-segregation and incarcerating hundreds of thousands of black men for a gram of weed that you want legalized in Japan.

Why would Democrats rush to vote her in since she is racist for adopting 2 underprivileged Haitian kids?

Yeah, and your team hasn't been so stupid as to fall for Russian disinformation ever, right?
Give me all of the proof you can here as a non-American on the outside looking in. Do study about Biden's buddies Thurmond and Byrd while you continue to study about U.S. politics.

Come on man. How often have you made sweeping generalizations about groups of people?
Coming from the man that generalizes Trump supporters?

More than 220,000 dead, more than 8,000,000 sickened and an economy in shambles devastating the lives of dozens of millions of Americans while Trump and his handful of fellow 'elite' profit.
I tend to post a new comment everyday, not copy and paste. This time I didn't hear anything about the "rot at the top" though.

The worst president in American history by a country mile
OK, please give a list here of all of his fails here. Oh yeah, while you are at it, give a list of Biden's policies here. I guarantee you will downvote this comment and disappear or deflect. It is pretty common around here.

I know someone who will sometimes spend ¥2000 - ¥3000 winning a plush toy for his daughter thats probably worth under ¥500.
and he probably could have bought that toy many times over online unless it is some holy grail plush.
I remember back in the day a few times trying the crane game on 1 machine and after losing 3 or 4 times, the staff opened it up and gave it to me. I told this story to Japanese people and they couldn't believe it. Foreign privilege I guess.

I am going to say today was the best day for me in this lousy 2020. I have waited for 10 years for the trophy to come back home and we had our share of bad years over that time. I hope we can get AD signed this offseason and get even stronger for next season. This is for you Mamba!

In NPB, the team's President has very little sway into the success of the team. They are just moved there from another branch within the company and only there to do the paperwork and contracts.

People here seem to want to read their own agenda into the attack. That doesn't help anyone - and will certainly not solve the problem.
A quick look on YouTube or other sites, I did not see one attack on Asian people by white supremacists wearing MAGA caps. There are many upon many incidences lately too but it doesn't fit anyone's narrative it seems.

The 14 Day quarantine runs on the honor system anyways. Airport staff tells you to go home for 14 days and it is up to you to stay home and abide by their rules. Nobody is camping outside your house or building making sure you follow orders. Bigger companies, like the one my friend works at, put their employees in hotels for quarantine to avoid negative press if someone is caught breaking protocol.

Well, something’s happening. It’ll be declared a fraud and a stitch up if trump loses and there’ll be tantrums aplenty, but Canute still has to give up.

If the US, Japan, India, and Australia work any more closely, they’ll be making babies. Good grief, Charlie Brown, give it a rest.
I find it disturbing that you are so Pro-China. It's a rarity for an American living in Japan.

Apparently he was quite scared when he was shipped to hospital and it dawned on him that he might be on his death bed.
Seems like you missed a whole 2 days of news when the helicopter was waiting for over an hour on the White House lawn waiting to take him to the hospital because he didn't feel the need to go. A day later he was going from room to room greeting other patients. Yes, sounds like a worried man to me.

The driver of the other car called police who then questioned Kawamura about the girl with him. He told them he was a relative.
I am curious though what the girl had to say. Did she cry for help or act nonchalant about it? This whole situation is scary for me that an elementary school girl was fine to meet an adult male and arrange a time to be picked up. Parents have to be more on top of their kids especially at a yoing age. I know the 23 year old loser is the first to blame but this is just an all-around fail.

It's humanly impossible to follow the storyline.
This is a typical Christopher Nolan movie. You have to act like you understand the plot to look like the smartest in the room. That is why I prefer "Unhinged" over this. I watch movies to be entertained. I liked "Inception" though but "Interstellar" was extremely overrated.
