    And yes I've heard of Mombasa, and no it's not even remotely a major country.


    You can't hold a candle to my education.
    I think the point he was making is that Mombasa isn't a country.:rolleyes:

    I was talking about white privilege in regrades to white policeman shooting down unarmed blacks for no reason... I don't know why you felt it was necessary to type all of that.



    Just because a person is unarmed doesn't mean they aren't criminals you moron.

    Do you even know basic law?

    If a person shoots another person and tosses his weapon into the gutters and he's later killed by police would you say the killing was unjustified because he was unarmed?

    That surprises me - source?
    There was the October 2015 bombing and the March 2016 one, no record of any other successful terrorist attacks there over the past year.

    I'm not supporting the murder of the little kid, but why would a 12 year old kid be playing with a toy gun?

    And why didn't he listen to the officers when they told him to drop the weapon and get on the floor.

    How were the officers supposed to tell the difference?
    You are really problematic and disgusting. He is a ****ing little kid. I see plenty of little kids playing with toy guns, big deal.

    I can't believe you said that to justify your *****y argument, you sound embarrassing.
    ????? Drop what weapon It was a ****ing toy gun you moron.
    Get on the floor for what? he did nothing wrong. Maybe the racist police cops should have investing the 'crime' scene attentively before shooting down a 12 year old innocent black boy.

    I said Ankara, not Turkey as a whole. You should be able to tell the difference.

    The caller could have been anyone. Is it really that easy to get a kid shot by the police in America? Are you in your right mind to say that shooting a child to kill is justified based on a phone call?

    These justifications just prove what the OP has been trying to say.
    The officers were told there was a gun would you wait until shorts are fired if it was your life on the line? I wouldn't.

    How does this prove white privilege? if I was a police officer and responded to a report of a gun I would shoot of there was even a hint of movement towards me no matter what the race of the boy was.

    wow, your ignorance is disturbing me.
    They are unarmed, scrolling down in the middle of the streets and then a police shoots them and you are trying to justify that?
    Even if they are criminals, they shouldn't have been shot, I don't believe in the death penalty.

    You are clearly a racist so I have no idea why I am continuing a conversation with you.

    :lol: that coming from someone who can't tell non-Western countries apart!

    1 year could mean any year, I chose last year. That does not change the fact that these cities are generally peaceful and stable. The so-called War on Terror hardly affected Turkey at all.

    Sure, Kenyans would not consider their second largest city to be a major city at all. I hope you are trolling, because it's sad to think that someone could really be this clueless.


    You have to be a complete dullard to think that Turkey and Lebanon's main cities are "generally peaceful and stable"

    I could right now pull out articles that provide lists of terrorist attacks in both these "generally peaceful cities"


    Infact i will.

    I specified two cities, not the countries as a whole and not their history. It's not my fault that you cannot tell the difference between a city and a country. That's like saying that New York is not a peaceful and stable city because of all the mass shootings in America.

    Hi
    I think white privilege definitely exists, especially in Western societies, because white people are nearly never excluded, murdered, or treated badly, (etc, etc) because of the mere fact that they are white. I don't think anyone can deny that racism exists. White people are privileged by seldom being the target of racism.

    A simple Ctrl + F on the Lebanon article will point you out to ver 30 attacks in Beirut alone.


    The "generally peaceful city" you were ignorantly praising.

    Is it not majority privilege as opposed to White privilege? Can't see many White Zimbabweans thinking they're particularly privileged.

    Fair enough; its usual to want to discuss differing opinions in order to get a better understanding - but I respect you backing out, rather than drawing/getting drawn into a long discussion. TSR is full of people too willing to take disagreements to dozens of pages.

    I do wonder though why you respond to others and not me?
    Yeah, I know but I think it has to be a agree to disagree. I didn't respond merely because I am already with 3 other arguments with guys who disagree with me and I didn't want you to be the 4th one.

    I didn't agree with what you said, but I couldn't be bothered to explain...
    That's the simplest way I can put it.
