You see, what you posted is just a muddle that conflates ISSUES (which I don’t deny exist) with LEGAL RIGHTS. The term “injustice” is a legal term. It implies that it is permissible legally to disadvantage people by race. It is not.

None of your examples refute what I said. An undocumented alien does not have the same protections as a citizen, and besides, the first citation is about a businessman decreasing the risk of a risky loan, not race; the fact that the SCOTUS is reviewing the North Carolina law for it’s legality reinforces my position rather than refutes it, and the fact that there are quality disparities in education doesn’t affect the fact that racial discrimination in education is illegal, *unless* you can prove that the quality disparities exist intentionally to disadvantage minorities.

The education issue is unquestionably the most important issue to solve. But, it’s not solvable by law. Unless you want to put a gun to the head of the best teachers and tell them where to teach. Study after study has shown that money alone doesn’t solve educational quality problems.

And Puerto Rico a racial issue? Please. FEMA was never designed to provide emergency services on anything other than highways. Every reporter on the ground in PR says that the San Juan harbor is thick with supply ships, but the infrastructure is too messed up to unload them and deliver it. That’s why the military has been brought in, because they have the ability to land supplies without a harbor, which FEMA does not.

Your reference to the third verse of the anthem, of which I was not aware, is legitimate, and it should be officially repudiated. If the NFL “”protestors” had raised that as an issue in the beginning, they’d probably have garnered more sympathy and support than they have.

Lastly, I wouldn’t expect the NBA or those who refuse to see the protest truthfully to put up with much that doesn’t suit them.

Well, neither is the NFL. You really don’t think that those owners are taking a knee to show solidarity with their black players, do you? :-)

Shit. What they’re afraid of us a general strike which screws up their cash flow. Nothing more.
