Speaking of Rwanda, I was having a discussion with SWMBO the other day about my focus on removing the labels and the hyphens in our society and trying to get everyone to just feel and believe they are American without having to differentiate and segregate themselves into African-'Murican, Asian-'Murican, Mexican-'Murican, etc.  She had just been to Rwanda back in early Feb for a Gorilla trek and while in Kigali, she spent at day at the Genocide museum.  She said it was an extremely powerful experience but the story of the reconciliation was also just as powerful and they emphasize that there as much as they do the atrocities that occured.  

One of her big takeaways on how they achieved decent progress in their reconciliation in such a short time was the drive to attempt to remove all references of tribe from society as a discriminator.  Obviously, tribal animus is what kicked off the genocide in the first place with the majority Hutus kicking the shit out of the Tutsis.  She was told by several there that tribal affiliations are being deemphasized and instead they attempt to get people to think of themselves as Rwandans first and "tribe" or other classifications pushed further down the pecking order of identity.  Obviously, they still have a long way to go - but given that it was only a few years ago that nearly a million people were slaughtered at the hands of their neighbors - they are making amazing progress.  In the US, it's only been what 150 years since slavery ended and 40 years since the Civil Rights Movement and people cannot let go of it.  There is an entire industry in the US devoted to promoting identity politics and the politics of victimhood.  And it will not end until we stop thinking of everyone not in your "tribe" as the enemy.  Yet that is exactly what is being promoted and stuffed down our throats.  If a next door neighbor in Rwanda can "get over" their father being hacked to death and their mother raped back in the mid 90s - I'm betting we can figure out a way to get past something that happened 150 years ago to our Great, Great Great Great Grandparents.  
You go girl. Hellofacrusade.

BLM is based on a lie, there is no evidence of systemic targeting of blacks by police....
You should have stopped at the word "of"....after that it is crystal clear your understanding of what BLM is based upon and it's journey to todate you are clueless to. 

Were you in Alabama on the weekend?

Nice job quoting the memes
SA small closed loop ...escape to infect unlikely  :D

- Calling out fake claims can also help false claims sink into the collective consciousness so brain subconsciously uses that as an indication that it’s true. Trump the master at this.

- Quarter of Americans said they had shared a made-up news story.

- People are inclined to believe false news at least 20% of the time.

Not here
if you don't quote false memes, they can be easily removed.  If you quote them, they cannot be easily removed.  Certain accounts that repeatedly post false or misleading memes are monitored automatically.  Those who quote them are not.

Good luck with using Rawanda as guidance noting it not alone ie. Armenian Genocide etc:

Relatively short term. Civil War as an entree then ethnic majority obliterate a long term rascist powerful minority. That's obliterate as in three quarters. So your forgive ratio is 1:4 population if 100% forgive. Careful what you wish for.

Then perpetrators campaign to create an alternative "truth" with the West doing little. Then remarkably there is a national genocide denial law making that illegal. Then free speech advocates from the west try and hijack that.

So is it "denying genocide" or "denying free speech." That divisionism is still happening today 25 years later. 

The US is closer than its ever been to having that "denying rascist history or denying free speech" conversation but that is not happening with current administration in Washington.

Of all the venues, they picked one in the precise location blacks were massacred on a massive scale.  That is either a demonstration of being completely oblivious or finger in the eye.  You can pretend it isn't what it is, but that is just you being you new dickish self.

As for the Republican Party ending slavery.  Yep.  The old incarnation of the Republican Party did that.  The new incarnation is busy closing polling stations in majority black areas.  You are one of the useful idiots who think the GOP of today is aligned with the Republican Party of the 1860s.
You have an excuse for everything don’t you... My kids try pulling that crap too.  
 

I hadn’t heard of Juneteenth till this week.  My family celebrates May 8th.

True.  Because nothing says "Happy Father's Day" like these headlines.


104 shot, 14 fatally, over Father’s Day weekend in Chicago

Five children were among the 14 people killed, including a 3-year-old boy and 13-year-old girl killed in separate shootings in Austin on Saturday.

Nobody cares about blacks being murdered every week in Chicago.  Never have. Never will.   It’s not a feel good issue - and no one has the balls to fix it.
