I was pretty uncomfortable in the country as a kid/teenager.

I live in Glasgow, which is minutes from hills, lochs, valleys, and just really beautiful countryside. We didn't have a car or much money though, so we never went.

Now that my family have money and cars that all love hill walking and camping.

So, I think it's more a money/access issue than a race one. But maybe that's my white privilege speaking. :lol:
Damn you and your white privilege using logic regarding the issue. :lol:

The whole labeling thing to me is a big part of the problem. We all want equality but labeling terms and especially race baiting features like this are more damaging than good.
You’re a smart guy and your words mean far more than mine, but I’m glad we agree on that point.

These fucking terms do nothing but put people in boxes. If there’s an issue with police, wealth inequality. lack of jobs, poor schooling, fucking racist countryside, it affects everyone, or certainly a large section of society....and it’s usually the poorest.

The division stoked up by these groups is bad for society as a whole, creates tensions across irrelevant lines where no tension has existed for years,and it takes people’s eyes off the real issues......and I wonder who benefits from that??

Yes. The problems are generally about class, not necessarily race. Those cunts who want to divide everyone into ever smaller little groups according to pigment and personal identity, and ranking them in terms of victimhood are helping nobody.

But then, neither are you or people like you, when you constantly go on about "The Left....... The Left........ The Left......." and act like it's a unified monolith, that every protestor is a looter, and that everyone who thinks that unrestrained laissez-faire crony capitalism has failed the people, is a Stalinist Communist. No, most of them are just ordinary people who have looked around and just want to have the things that citizens in the rest of the developed world take for granted.

:hat

I resisted arrest many times
But overhere cops use minimal force
In usa (many clips in you tube as proof) if someone is in handcuffs or on the floor you still see cops beating up someone..

tgats called overexecive force.
That means those cops are not suited for their job

plane and simple...

look it’s really easy...
Cops In usa are overly agressive you’re whole culture is...

overhere if cops chase somebody and he drives like a maniac into a very busy neighbourhood the cops break of the chase otherwise chances of people getting hit by the car of either cops or suspect are to high..

in America cops overreact in everything just as all you people are kinda hysterical...

if a person is not an immediate thread to others cops should try to de escalate the situation...

example if a drugged up guy with a machete walks in the middle of the street destroying stuff and cops have him surrounded and no by standers around then no need to shoot the guy..
Let him rage and exhaust himself...
Try to talk him into surrender
Whatever..
For USA cops a human life is not worth much

hell there are so many videos online where cops enter someone’s yard a small dg barks at them and the shoot that dog...

usa cops are imho worse then Nazi death camp doctors...
If you were American with your stupid antics, you would have been shot dead by the cops long time ago..Mr. 80’s tuff guy

This whole modern black suffering is beyond me. I must have been shielded from it.

I can honestly say in my whole life, I have never seen a black person being treated badly compared to the whites - either at school or at work.

In fact, one of my very best friends at boarding school was a black lad from Islington. He was always considered to be very cool and everyone loved him. The only time he was a nigga was when he left the room. So I can't say he experienced any racism.
