Re: “Same Team

I'm tired of this Copernican view on systemic racism. I can go to Mexico, Africa, China. India, or hundreds of other countries and see and experience racism being perpetrated by all races. This is just another condescending version of "Dear White People" rather than a call for equality and humanity. Take your identity politics and racial divisiveness somewhere else. The idea that someone may secretly be racist works only by broadening the meaning of racism until the term has lost its meaning and is just another buzzword to drive compliance with cultural Marxism.

Re: “Same Team

This author has captured the right sentiment in proportion to the reality.

"In equal crimes unequal fates are found, whilst one swings the other's crowned", (Thomas Creech, 1650).

The original 2007 study cited here was refuted in 2013 in a University of Michigan study in collaboration with universities of Illinois and Florida, published in the Journal of Sports Economics in 2013.

Re: “Same Team

Yep, just keep looking for differences rather than embraces our commonalities. Continue to force feed that wedge into the crack of difference to make it a canyon.....

Re: “Same Team

Another example of how somebody can be racist without knowing it is to write an article titled "How someone can be racist without knowing it" within which every example given portrays white people as the racists.

Re: “Hypocrisy Now!

Using numbers from a very biased source does not get you far. It is lazy, especially since there has been a lot of studies since then and where they got their numbers came from a early 2000 UN report.
From EPA it is found that the ag secture (including livestock and crops) has slightly more of an impact on greenhouse gasses than the residential sector. It is also seen that the industry, energy and transpotation sectors are a lot worse than agriculture.
Feedlots are horrible for the animals and the environment. But, livestock grazing on the rangeland isn't. It allows for us to use the rangeland and preserve it.
Talk to a range major and learn more!
