[quote]That's you using the free will that a benevolent creator gave you, but will send you to hell to burn for all eternity because you used it.[/quote] Who told you that? Anyway, life wouldn't be life without free will. Love of God would be worthless without choice. I don't know what happe...

[quote]This is more than a bit uncharitable. If you won't use this same description for blacks who say "cracker," then don't use it for older, rural whites who don't understand "dog whistle" language. My mom would use the word in a way you would call racist and yet she has volunteered hundreds of ho...

[quote]I avoid the word thug as a descriptor of black males because they think it's racist.[/quote] Exactly. That's all I'm saying. No white man who was up in front of a group of black people trying to win their vote or convince them he wanted to help them would use the word "thug" and expect to w...

[quote]he etymology of the word dates back to the early 1800s[/quote] Thanks for that. I thought for sure that Tupac invented it in the 90s. Well, the more you know. I'm talking about how we use the word now in the 21st century. My experience is that as kids we knew what the word meant, but i...

[quote]Um. Fail. If you are robbing a store with a gun it's not a capital crime but, if the cop shows and you won't stop pointing it at people you're gonna end up dead. STILL wasn't a "capital crime". Try again.[/quote] I realize that it's not a "capital crime" every time a police offic...

[quote] I don't. But there's evidence to suggest that it's reasonable to believe he did have to shoot him. In fact, from the information I've read about this case it's unreasonable to believe Wilson gunned down an innocent victim[/quote] I haven't seen you speak in a way that makes me think you t...

[quote]The capital crime part is stupid too. It's a common meme and it's always dumb. When you do stupid shit, sometimes, it results in worse results than some jury would give you.

[quote]So because blacks have used a word to describe other blacks in a certain way, it's stricken from my lexicon?

[quote]Maybe we should educate them (and your dumbass, apparently) on the history of the word "thug".[/quote] The way you spoke to me here proves you don't really want to dialogue with me.

[quote]No. That is literally impossible when one side can and does flex the meaning of the word at their convenience. [/quote] Love crowds out hate.
