There are cable news channels that use the term racist every day. I would like a $100 for every-time they use this word. (they just can't stop)
I would use the money to start a new news channel that has both sides views. We need people like Tim Russert again to bring back trust.

Racism has been misused by the left so hard, the word is meaningless now.

I turned on the t.v. at one point yesterday and there was a show on featuring a number of Black individuals being interviewed - just brief cuts from one to the other, as is commonly done in documentaries and theme features. The people being interviewed were not "man on the street" types, but in-studio guests. The subject of this segment was "Karens", and a man was talking about how, according to him, "some White people" were starting to recognize and call out Karens."But", he continued, "you're all Karens". Then, as a clip of a crying White woman standing beside a police officer was shown, a Black woman was talking about White people who align themselves with Black victims, and she said, "We see your tears...but they're not going to save you". Maybe I should have watched more of the show to get some context, but I couldn't stomach it.

Do I get $100 because you used the word racist in this post?

I disagree, the term still has meaning. Just not when Democrats use it.

Is this a "cable news channel"? Can you read? And do we all get $100 for your use of the word?

I didn’t create your pedestrian game. You did. Make the rules and I’ll play by them. Until then your game is simpleton in nature.

Why do you see everything as a game?

Simpleton is a noun, Wordsworth. :)

Totally. Did you think you’re the only “read” individual on this Forum or did you just simply throw Google search out there and came up with the wrong analogy?

No? What was it if not a reference to a poet in comparison to me? Please explain.

No? What was it? A simpleton’s attempt at a troll only to be called out on how the comparison is invalid?

Classic.... When in doubt claim “trolling”. Suffice it to say you’re either too lazy or simply don’t have a response. So you claim trolling. You’re well known for this.

Right you have one person trolling and another claiming trolling. Pretty straight forward. Meanwhile I’m just here pointing out the truth.

I’m practicing it by calling out the offenders. How that is hypocritical is beyond me. You should realize you’re just a member here. No longer a mod or VIP. We have that in common. For the most part. Stop trying to exercise control where you have none.

You keep using that noun Wordsworth. I don’t think it means what you think it means.

You’re using the term “Wordsworth” either as a proper noun about the poet or as a noun in which case it means nothing. Either way you’re a moron.
