    Question regarding the public reactions to racism

    How does it make people feel better about their views and what views do you mean specifically?

    Covid-19

    There’s no good excuse for knowingly taking a quote out of context.

    Covid-19

    Haha, WTH? Why did you put coronavirus in parenthesis? Below is the quote. He isn’t saying coronavirus isn’t a crisis in that quote, he’s saying the price of oil isn’t. I hope you’re just messing with me. "During the past year, obviously, we have had moments of crisis. A lot of that is...

    Covid-19

    There’s no question that dude is in the “you don’t have to shut the world down” camp and thinks only the elderly and sickly should worry about it. If people want to criticize him for that it’s totally fair game. But I had to read through article after article where it says he called the virus...

    Covid-19

    I decided to look up his quote on it being a fantasy. Seems to me it is being taken out of context. "During the past year, obviously, we have had moments of crisis. A lot of that is fantasy. And coronavirus, which is not all the mainstream media makes it out to be," he said.

    Media company hypocrisy

    I’m not a parent but I guess it doesn’t bother me if somebody is a parent and Disney’s values don’t align with their values, and therefore they don’t want to expose their kids to it. I guess I see it as a personal choice and not one that when made means somebody isn’t enjoying their life. You...

    Media company hypocrisy

    I think you are missing the point even though it’s right in front of you. People want movies and sports to be an escape from reality like you said, and probably the thing they want to escape most is the toxic politics of this country. By choosing not to watch those forms of entertainment they...

    Media company hypocrisy

    I don’t see why people getting turned off by the politicizing of sports makes them idiots. Why does that bother you? And in addition to ESPN taking a hit in Disney’s portfolio, what about SW? Disney politicizing that brand has really hurt the returns on that gigantic investment. I guess I...

    Media company hypocrisy

    I know of a bunch of people anecdotally that have cut the cord and don’t have ESPN because of their political slant and from what I’ve been told ESPNs numbers have shown that in recent years. I remember hearing that ESPN dumped a bunch of their toxic personalities like KO and Jemele Hill...

    I wonder when it was posted because the receipt is from 6/30.

    Hear, hear! If the standard for our historical figures is perfection then none will be left to study. Harriet Tubman was probably a far better person than Thomas Jefferson, but Jefferson was far more impactful as far as the United States becoming and then surviving as a fledgling nation that...

    I hope so too, but I am skeptical. There seems to be, IMO, too much emotion surrounding it now for how it is taught not to be impacted.

    I agree. I’ve always found the civil war and the characters associated with it fascinating and studied a lot about it several years ago. I’m glad i got to learn about when I did because I don’t think it will be taught the same way again.
