    My opinion on the racist roots article I understand that slavery is in the past and is one of the most tragic event in the black community, but people think just because it’s in the “past” that we need to “forgive and forget” is very ignorant to me. How can i forgive people that stole people from their country ,beat them , raped, enslaved, and treated them as wild animals because of the color of their skin? Even today, as an African american i have NO rights over a Caucasian and that is the truth. Nobody can tell me that i am over-dramatic about this topic. Also, I understand at the time slavery was a “normal” to white people and presidents did have slaves as well, i know that doesn’t make them monsters but people should feel a certain way that did have slaves. For example, Thomas Jefferson raped his slave Sally Hemings for years but yet people never cared about that. Police brutality is one of the biggest issues in the black community right now but people want to turn a blind eye and say things like “they should’ve listened to orders”. To wrap my comment up i want just want people to know that this something that we don’t need to forget this something that we need to learn from.

    I’m sorry, have we not learned from slavery? It’s not like it’s illegal in the U.S. or anything, but sure let’s focus on it when it is still going on in different places around the world, but sure let’s focus on the past instead of moving on. Makes no sense. It’s just creating more problems.

    First of all nobody is asking you to forgive anyone that held slaves, whats wrong is when you hate on white people in general even though they don’t have them now. You arn’t supposed to have rights over anyone based on skin colour so that makes sense. Slavery wasn’t really about skin colour as much as just what was available at the time, for example in ancient Egypt jews were plentiful and had few rights so most slaves at the time were jews, and during slavery in America, Africans were plentiful and easy to get as the tribes in Africa loved to fight and sell their enemies as slaves so it was just easy to have african slaves.

    Kailyn, you are being over dramatic.

    This article has too much liberal bias, ben shapiro no approve. Sike, but to be real it does have a lot

    “The political right has always had a problem with their face”. What a joke of a statement. How about: THERE ARE PLENTY OF FIGUREHEADS ON BOTH SIDES OF THE POLITICAL SPECTRUM THAT HURT THE REPUTATION OF OUR COUNTRY. Man, that sounds a lot better, doesn’t it? Maybe because it’s realistic with how political figures look from both sides and how it’s currently tearing our country apart. This article on Jordan Peterson is criticizing how a figurehead feels about a certain topic, so why don’t you try and show some empathy for why they might feel this way rather than labeling them as backwards republicans. Give both sides of the argument for once on this news outlet. Or have me write an article to make things a little bit more balanced. Or just leave out politics completely, since all it does is cause problems in the first place.

    Conor Mackay’s guide to political discourse: just say both sides are bad and don’t add anything else. Real informative, dude.

    It’s undeniable that the current state of the Republican Party is INFINITELY worse than that of the Democrats. Last time I checked, Republican figureheads were the ones denying the existence of climate change, advocating for supply side economics, trying to take healthcare away from Americans, spouting racist dogwhistles constantly, supporting the PRESIDENT’S attacks on the free press, and pushing insane conspiracy theories like QAnon, Pizzagate, Uranium One, and the birther theory.

    What are the Democrats doing again?

    It’s not even comparable in the slightest.

    “To wrap my comment up i want just want people to know that this something that we don’t need to forget this something that we need to learn from.”

    No one forgets slavery, just as no one forgets the Holocaust.
    History isn’t “forgotten” especially since; ya know, it’s taught in schools all across the United States. Even if you’re homeschooled you get taught history. It is not history that defines a nation, just as it is true that your past does not define you as a person. It is the experiences you learn from victories, defeats, good choices, bad choices, and every other little thing you do. Just as it has been for nations around the globe, and through the various tests of time.

    It’s kind of ridiculous to declare that the republican party is in shambles when they currently house more members of the senate and now the supreme court now that Kavanaugh’s name has been redeemed…to you, climate change, universal healthcare, and other problems like free college are problems that seem more dire to attend to. To me, immigration policies (no racial undertones) and less government intervention into our economic system seems to be more relevant problems. I don’t agree with all republican ideas, such as anti abortion and climate change, just as you might not believe in all democratic ideology. I just think over-saturation of a single party is downright unfair. If the democratic party was in office, I would want them to succeed in helping our country prosper because that’s the mature thing to do. All democracts want right now is the failure of Donald Trump and the republican party, which is unbelievably regressive. Everyone has different views and I believe that we should at least be available to see both sides

  11. nice on October 15th, 2018 11:44 am

    That wasn’t even your argument in the first place though. Sure, you can have more different views than the normal Republican, but your whole point was that FIGUREHEADS on both sides ruin America’s reputation. There’s a reason why certain political figures are more popular than others, and that’s because a larger majority of people hold those very same beliefs. Don’t even try to argue that people like Rush Limbaugh and Sean Hannity don’t represent the majority of conservative views, because that’s just illogical.

    Also, how does the opposition of regressive policies thus make someone regressive?

    And I LOVE how you complain about the over-saturation of one party when Republicans currently control all three branches of government. And they STILL couldn’t repeal Obamacare.

    “If the democratic party was in office, I would want them to succeed in helping our country prosper because that’s the mature thing to do. All democracts [sic] want right now is the failure of Donald Trump and the republican party, which is unbelievably regressive.”

    I want the people in charge to help our country prosper. I really do! but their opinions, and corrupt ideas behind the scenes (note: I’m not saying democrats are blameless), do not agree with what I think will make the country prosper- and in many cases they’ve made themselves seem very biased against certain u.s. minority groups (even if they aren’t bigoted they’re doing a good job of making it seem like so), which seems counterproductive. so that’s why I want them voted out of power! because I want them to be replaced with people that do share my ideas on what would make America prosper. if that makes any sense, anyway. tldr: I want the people in office to succeed in helping our power, which is why I want them replaced currently with people I view as more competent

  13. Conor Mackay on October 16th, 2018 11:46 am

    Apparently you didn’t understand that when I talked about over-saturation of one party, I was clearly talking about the mainstream media. The media is dominated by liberal views on every outlet possible. Yes, it’s what seems to be more popular and “progressive” nowadays, but any hint that I share my conservative view on society, I am labeled a bigot and a racist. And for you to say that there aren’t icons on both sides that are both crazy and/or illogical is such a lie. How about you try understanding what I’m saying rather than just attempting to debunk my entire argument. Rather than acting childish by painting liberals as these angels passed down from the heavens, and republicans as these brainless neanderthals, admit that there are people that hurt the reputation of all Americans. Both sides are embarrassing to watch sometimes, and I think we all need to do a better job at cooperating rather than bickering. Darkstripe’s comment couldn’t have been more civil and understanding, despite us disagreeing on ideals. Don’t be so close-minded “nice”. Have some empathy for the other side of the spectrum.

    You need to understand that it wasn’t the white male of today that enslaved anybody that was over 100 years ago it was bad don’t get me wrong but not forgiving a whole group of people who had nothing to do with it seems a little childish.

  15. Football on October 18th, 2018 2:15 pm

    Police Brutality is an issue for everybody, but why is it when a black gets beaten the responses are amplified so drastically. If a white male were to get assaulted by an officer you probably wouldn’t care so if you are going to bring up a topic that is racially sensitive can you please think both sides because police brutality isn’t a racial problem so to say, but a problem to the general community.

  17. frank on October 25th, 2018 12:39 pm

    first off this article has a lot of liberal bias. i would like to say that police brutality isnt a black issue, if you look at the statistics of whites killed by police and blacks killed by police vs. the actual interactions its very similar. second off men can be raped, and their is extreme anti male anti white anti straight bias in this society

  18. frank on October 25th, 2018 12:47 pm

    i would like to state the fact that when ever i try to post a respectful comment that is politically right leaning it wont let me post it

  19. nice on October 26th, 2018 9:34 am

    “their is extreme anti male anti white anti straight bias in this society”

    Conor, this is why I don’t cooperate with conservatives, because there is no compromise between fantasy and reality.

    And I never said that Democrats were perfect, as their foreign policy in particular leaves a lot to be desired. However, to put the two parties at the same level of fault is just pure delusion. Your entire argument rests upon the fact that both sides are equally bad as long since they each have at least ONE crazy figurehead. This completely ignores actual beliefs and policies, where the Republican Party completely falls apart.

    Please look up the middle ground fallacy.
