    I get your point. The motivations behind shooting black people and white people can be vastly different however. How often are white people being killed by cops for the reasons of racism or because...

    The sentiment doesn't change with a new flag. It still embodies the same racist Southern culture that was in support of owning slaves, indentured servitude, Jim Crow, segregation, etc. It's still a...

    That's not debatable. I'm not one who thinks details are irrelevant though. Not everything is racially motivated but black people have very different experiences with cops than white people do....

    So then its a new word with a new pronunciation, spelling, etc. You want to get hung up on minutia to keep furthering this dumb argument. Your point is disingenuous. Black people don't use the word...

    White people represent 62% of the American population. Black people make up 13%. It stands to reason that more white people will be killed by cops because they outnumber black people by almost 5 to...

    It's not the same word. Hence the different spelling and pronunciation. Neither is it your decision to make in how black people use language among their own. As Valade said, black people aren't using...

    There are a lot of facts that are nonsense. This is one of them. If you ignore context, which is something you love doing then yeah that holds more weight than it should. Otherwise it doesnt.

    Well you're not getting Bryant on a Bauer deal. I understand what you're saying but I think its implied that Bryant gets 6 or 7 years at 30 million or more a season. Depending on how active FA is, he...

    I understand the sentiment. Its just they can't warm these guys up or have them pitch everyday because if a major injury goes to one of those arms, they're screwed. The Mets need better depth in the...

    Same. I don't give a **** about this homegrown Met stuff. Its a nice cozy blanket fans love to wear but loyalty will burn your *** in a results based business. No reason to overpay a corner OF like...

    Managers have to do those things otherwise you would burn through your best RP before the all star game. Its not ideal but the Mets have 5 guys who are solid to great. After that its slim pickings...

    They've used Loup, Lugo, Castro, pretty extensively the last 3 days. Who else do they turn to? This is Familia's fire to put out. They're aren't an endless group of quality RP to turn to.

    They really have no choice but to. They aren't this pipeline of young talent yet so the only way they can build a WS contender is through FA and acquiring salary in trade. Yeah its nice in theory...

    His approach of giving people a 1000 dollars a month helped. A UBI is not a bad idea. Its just a matter of practicality which is an issue. I think they said it would cost 4 trillion dollars to do...

    Thinking about the NYC mayoral election makes me wonder why Cuomo hasn't been impeached yet or why he hasn't resigned. I know he said he wouldn't but its ridiculous that he is still governor of NY...
