Re: Climate Change Will Force a New American Migration

It seems kinda bad faith to try to equate what Native Americans might say about controlled burns with industrial logging operations.

Re: Politics

I don't think there is really anything left to say about the race thing so not gonna beat a dead horse. To conclude by tying it back to your original statement that precipitated the whole thing, yes things are bad for a lot of people, and yes they will continue to be bad and will likely get worse if...

Re: Politics

I'm just now realizing this is a message board. I was confused. Please point out where I was "bragging". I'm not disagreeing I talked about my personal time spent with members of the black community in an effort to understand, learn and be a ally. I'm pointing out it's ridiculous to call me discuss...

Re: Politics

Listen, you all sit there and be quiet because you think you can’t have an opinion unless you are a member of what your opinion refers too. I don’t care how much time you’ve spent educating yourself or how involved in other communities you are, unless it’s an opinion about your gender, your race an...

Re: Politics

I've never acknowledged my race on here that I'm aware of and does that make a difference in you respecting my opinion or not? Would you treat me differently if you knew I were a black person who tries to remain in the middle but tends to lean to the right? Why should I be forced to reveal my race ...

Re: Politics

You "can't imagine it being all that bad for anyone," but something like 90% of black people clearly imagined that Trump was worse for them in 2016, and a similar proportion are currently polling in favor of Biden. Maybe you ought to just admit that they might know something about their own circums...

Re: GO CHIEFS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Personally I don't think that booing sitting out the anthem is especially better than booing empty gestures toward "unity," so I'm not sure how meaningful the distinction really is anyway. What I'm confused about is why anybody would expect anything else from a crowd of NFL fans willing to attend a ...

Re: Politics

Not out of spite, but possibly in defense of some. Obviously this wouldn't be the sole reason and certainly not an uneducated vote. You literally said spite before, it was your own word that you chose. But whether your vote is to spite the meanies or show solidarity with their, uh, "victims," in an...

Re: Politics

Took a few days to reflect on this before commenting because unlike what was mentioned, I do take politics very seriously which is why I get heated. As someone struggling to decide what to do with my vote, everything factors into that decision. I have many friends and family members who are Trump s...

Re: Politics

Are you serious? Why are comparisons to a past president off limits? That's so childish. How do we know if what anyone does is good or bad if we don't look at the past? I'm not comparing them as men or even presidents, I'm comparing their schedules. It was made to sound like taking his first meetin...

Re: Politics

Call it whatever you want. I understand that if anyone pushes back on any criticisms of Trump, they must surely be "insert name". I'm so sick of being insulted any time I try to simply clarify accusations made against him or play devils advocate that I think I'm going to vote for the guy. I think t...

Re: Politics

He's been running for president for 30 years, he definitely wants it, he's not going to just immediately resign and ride off into the sunset. Also, having pulled a naked bait and switch like that would also be a nightmare for Democrats in future elections. Kamala already presented herself as an opti...

Re: COVID19

There is no big mystery here. New York did literally everything differently than all these other states that are spiking now: a real shutdown that people actually observed. For months the streets were dead and the vast majority of those people who were out were wearing masks. Transit ridership and c...

Re: Operation Legend

I feel it would be a good thing for the republican party if Trump doesn't win. They need to reset, kick out some old heads and figure out how to appeal to younger people, women and minorities which will take years of work to do. Without the electoral college, the republican party would never stand ...

Re: COVID19

I'm not blaming Trumps terrible response on impeachment. He response is his own fault for caring more about the stock market than anything else. I'm blaming all of the senate and congress's lack of a timely response on the impeachment trial that they were so obsessed with... both sides. A few repub...

I'm sure that Joe "Republicans are good guys and we can work across the aisle with them" Biden would prosecute Trump and his admin just as vigorously as Obama prosecuted the Bush admin for their myriad crimes and the white collar criminals who tanked the economy

Re: COVID19

We have a very strong tradition of ascribing divergent outcomes between white and minority populations to differences of biology because it washes our hands of any culpability for creating and maintaining the socioeconomic environment in which those divergent outcomes occurred. Could the vitamin D d...

There's a known genetic difference where white people produce more vitamin D naturally With dark skin, need longer exposure to sunlight to get enough D. One report claims light skin people only need about 15 minutes of direct sunlight...
