There are so many reasons to be ashamed of being an American these days, and this is one of the worst. This has to stop.

Its a really sorry state of affairs we have here, with no end in sight. Looking at the evil we perpetrate upon our own people, its no wonder there is no end to the numbers of people around the world, and within our own boarders, who want to try to hurt us with terrorism.


Absolutely not.
No.
Fuck no.
You are insane.
You have a serious case of white guilt. Please see a therapist.

You're right that racism in the USA seems to be intentionally inflated and worsened in the last few years. Sure. It's very concerning and hopefully it will stop before too long.
But being ashamed of your country because of the actions of a few bad people is completely insane.
Saying shit like "we white folk have been" is also insane. Did you personally do these things ? No ? How about your family ? Your grandparents perhaps ? No ? Then what the fuck are you on about ?
The whole slavery issue was a long time ago and even then it was a minority who owned slaves or even believed slavery was okay.
Attributing the wrongs of this tiny group of people to all of white people is insane. Nevermind that literally people of every skin color on the planet have been guilty of slavery.

Also, because we have criminals and crazies in our country, it's no wonder other people want to hurt us ?
No. There is no more excuse for any terrorist wanting to hurt us as there is an excuse for a racist to perpetrate a hate crime.

Do you know that people who are most likely to develop hatred for others are those who have no self-respect themselves ?
So maybe respect your heritage and your country a little bit, to begin with. Then you can respect your neighbor, and so on.

America (and Canada, for that matter) is a great country. It's not perfect, but too many people nowadays are quick to see the glass being half empty. North America is the most ethnically diverse place on the planet. It is where people are the most free.
We have gender equality and for the most part, probably the LEAST racism, and definitely the highest standard of living.

Don't treat your country like shit. Be proud of being American and condemn those who do evil on her soil.

(Side note: Maybe get your information from more than just mainstream media. Cheerios!)


He seemed more a "the glass is completely empty, and someone is beating me with it" kinda guy.

Yeah, his post was up there with Obama apologizing for the Crusades.

zornrah is completely over exaggerating and it's so frustrating to see so many people do that.

The police have become a haven for power hungry and a lot of bullies, cant do it in high school any more, well come on here will pay you for it . Not that getting shot at helps but there will aways be that undercurrent.

How so, your founding fathers were slave owning hypocrites . I mean for fucks sake mate the 13 amendment wasn't a thing until April 8, 1864, 88 years after the founding of the United States. And there are still people alive who remember when black people weren't even allowed to use the same bathrooms as white people. And lets not get started on how white supremacy groups operate openly in the United States, especially in the southern half of it.

The history of racial discrimination in the United States is a long one and very much still in recent memory. Is race the at the heart of this shooting though is a debatable point . What it does say is that the requirements to join the police force in the Untied States have to be laughably low if brain dead morons like the officer in question is one.

Police have the best job security, you could shoot someone at random, say "I don't know why I did that." and get a paid holiday.

May have been racism may have been a slip but if this story has any merit than they should make an example of this officer. I can agree here. This is what the justice system is for, if it doesn't work I'll be upset.

Fuck it, I'm packing my things and moving to Japan. At least you don't hear about stuff like this happening a lot in Japan. I've been saying that if Trump wins the election that I'll move to Japan in a slightly joking way, but with the way things have been going in America, I'm beginning to think that it's a really good idea.

And also, I read a short article on this yesterday and I think that it's deplorable that the cop shot that man. I don't think that there was any justifiable reason to, especially since the guy was cooperating with police, said exactly what was going on and had his hands in the air and explained that they didn't have any weapons at all. I'm wondering if it was a new cop who got over-nervous and reacted that way, but that's still no excuse.

"So the guy wasn't being aggressive, he was explaining to you what he was doing and what his patient was holding, and he had his hands in the air. Why did you shoot him?"

"I don't know."

"...Get your ass out of here."

Everyone loves to hate the police until they need them. That will never change.

"We."

Huh.

I don't remember killing anyone actually, brown or not. Weird, right?
