13. Bingo!

These dog whistles aren't even subtle if you've been around even a little while.

14. Really? Because I'm still wondering at some people posting at DU.

 

I mean, if you are shown a picture of a white cop with the black person they just lynched--i.e. shot an unarmed person convicted of no crime under color of law---, isn't it kinda obvious that the cop is racist? The situation, racist?

I ask, because apparently, some dog whistles have to be deafening.

17. They don't like that "white America"

is on a downward trend.

http://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2015-06-25/american-babies-are-no-longer-mostly-non-hispanic-white

Racial and ethnic minorities now surpass non-Hispanic whites as the largest group of American children under 5 years old, the Census Bureau said Thursday.

The reversal in 2014 marked a milestone in a trend toward a more diverse U.S. that's projected to continue. Births outnumbered deaths for all ethnic and racial groups last year except for non-Hispanic whites, the new Census data show. A report earlier this year projected that by 2044, today's majority white population will be the minority.

3. Joe Walsh is a racist and a liar

 

Makes racist threat, claims it isn't a threat. Seems pretty straightforward.

21. And a consummate asshole...Thankfully, he lost his congressional seat to Tammy Duckworth

in 2012, and yes, I think his tweet is racist and alarming...

Saying "This is war", and telling "Obama and Black Lives Matter" people that they should

be 'Careful'?!?...That's outrageous and I hope he's being investigated.

Funny, I was just thinking of buying a "Black Lives Matter" T-shirt, but

since I'm white, I fear getting shot some crazy racist white person. Shit...When, if ever, will all this hideousness stop?

4. Totally ignoring the black men that were murdered. Something to wake up to.

 

I am reading all this, gonna have to step into an office of a whole lot of rw white people talking the horrors of Dallas, while ignoring what led to this.

Reading thru out these threads trying to get the information in this shooting, I hear the many disconnects in the conversation.

All about guns....

6. I think you're mistaking John Walsh

 

for this cretin. If you're referring to the person who does the show The Hunt on CNN, that's John Walsh whose son was killed. This is an ex-gop congressmen (the one who shouted you lie at the President).

10. Weather in NY is the same

 

I got DRENCHED last night walking home from the train from an out of nowhere storm. Supposed to get a break on Sunday. Hope you get the same. This is why I don't complain about the cold in winter - so I can whine non-stop about the heat in the summer.

I'm currently at my office in mid-town but live in Westchester. Hang on until Sunday - they're promising relief. Until then, worship at the feet of the whoever invented freon.

15. Actually the ex-gop congressmen who shouted "you lie" was Joe Wilson.

Minor correction as it's hard to keep up with these racist jerks.

16. Oy vey

 

The names and racists are so common, they all blend together. I remember having nothing but disdain for Joe Walsh, I thought that was the reason but it must have been some other asshole-ish thing he did.

23. Sadly, many whites are using the deaths of the police

 

As political fodder. The police aren't even identified yet, and some asshat ex-cops were on CNN saying that the rhetoric of the last 2 years led directly to this. Charles Blow shamed the ex-cop who said this.
It's ridiculous, unprovable AND is taking the attention away from the bad cops who do these things and those who protect them.
