If Kansas City's black communities want to unite to educate against hate they need to start with their selves. They are using racism to fight racism. I really don't think this will ever be better after what black people have done to the country, it's gone way too far and the hatred is more intense now than it was years ago. Most of the black people crying racism and hatred are very prosperous and have had a good life in this country. People are bitter over this and don't expect it to be fixed.

Worthless Subhuman Lives Matter said...

Antisemitism -- Any reality-based assessment of Jewish behavior. Jews created communism and usury. Jews dominate banking, media, and pornography. Jews gave atomic bomb secrets to the Soviet Union. If we subtract every Jew from radical leftist politics, almost no one is left. Jews created the Victim Industry (see Holocau$t) and control debate by screeching "antisemitism" every time anyone so much as disagrees with them. Jews have been banished from 109 different countries, but it's "antisemitic" to suggest that even once it was their fault. Fuck 'em.

Bandit Darville said...

WSLVM, is that you Nancy Pelosi? Pretty sure that you aren't Joe Biden. That rant was complete sentences LOL!

Hey Bandit--My saying you're not an anti-Semite was a compliment, and you certainly don't have to be Jewish to oppose antisemitism. I'm glad to know there's one group out there you're not against.

And 3:27: The Thousand Year Reich called. They want you back.

All these organizations trying to establish some credibility constantly are "reaching out" to other identifiable groups simply to increase their claimed membership and support.
It never works out very well for very long.
BLM, which was started by a lesbian and her transgender husband, is already suffering the usual infighting over money, power, and celebrity.
After the Women's March in 2017, the group instantly fragmented into fights among Jewish, black, and white women over who would run the show.
The "everybody is a victim of something" routine can get you only so far.
And this black/Jewish/Latino proposal has nothing at all in common to hold it together.
