Forehead Posted August 31, 2018 Share Posted August 31, 2018 1 minute ago, BenningRoadSkin said: the problem is they haven't changed, they just aren't saying it in the open anymore. Instead, everything is policy changes. Fox News is a racist network but you will never hear them say anything overtly racist, but they play up dog whistles. Everything is institutionalized and racist language have been adjusted to fit the mainstream. Part of my problem here is not reading the "five new entries" thing that pops up before I hit post. Then I would have seen the OP being changed from 50 years ago to 15, and your post about not wanting to hear the usual fallback answers. Unfortunately, anytime someone says 50-60 years ago, the first things that come to mind are things like separate fountains/entrances, etc...and hate crimes like lynchings. We have a bad person in charge and a lot of older, out of touch folks in Congress who secretly pine for "the old days" and need to be cleared out. Unfortunately they have a lot of sway over policy. Hopefully that starts to changs in November. I think my larger point remains true though. I'm seeing the angry response to racism become much more united, which I think is a positive step. And this time, I was smart enough to click show replies and see what Justice wrote. Since 2016, no doubt it has gotten worse. 2 Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
