  1. IMHO, and others, it didn't. https://www.theguardian.com/commentisfree/2016/jul/14/barack-obama-us-racism-police-brutality-failed-victims It's been going on for ages and quite frankly, it sucks. I thought this was a pretty good article: https://www.nytimes.com/2020/06/01/opinion/george-floyd-protest-police.html "More than half a century later, justice is still being postponed. Racial inequality remains rampant in wealth, housing, employment, education — and enforcement of the law. This is not news, but it is the responsibility of all those in power to recognize and fix it. As President Lyndon Johnson’s Kerner Commission found after studying the inequality at the root of the 1960s riots: “White institutions created it, white institutions maintain it and white society condones it.” That's in reference to Martin Luther King's quote “In the final analysis, a riot is the language of the unheard,” Dr. King said.

      I guess my point is, you don't know if you're being kind to them, or being kind to make yourself feel good, if there's no understanding.

      That makes a lot of sense when you put it that way, Jimmy.

  3. Here's an example how the media distorts the truth: ‘Armed rednecks’ defend stores from looters amid George Floyd protests https://nypost.com/2020/05/28/armed-rednecks-stave-off-looters-amid-george-floyd-protests/ They don't mention the 2 Black Americans - so are they "rednecks" too? Instead it should be telling the story of racial diversity, that is, how it doesn't matter the colour of your skin, instead of segregation.
  4. There lived a certain man in Russia long ago...
    He was big and strong, in his eyes a flaming glow...
    Most people looked at him with terror and with fear...
    But to Moscow chicks he was such a lovely dear...

      well i haven't done any research on Rasputin beyond wikipedia, but the guy in the video seemed pretty reasonable, looked like he was well-prepared and it seemed to me he was pretty matter of factly about the topic, but i guess you can't really avoid  discussing some of the myth that surrounds Rasputin... and probably it's a little bit of a clickbait too, or it's there for the effect, you know... but i'm really curious about your opinion on the video as you read the book and have some preliminary knowledge about the subject, so pls do write back if you have the time)

  5. I've long since retired and my son's moved away.
    I called him up just the other day.
    I said, "I'd like to see you if you don't mind."
    He said, "I'd love to, dad, if I could find the time.

      It's interesting the UKJ version show's the son playing with his kids. 

      So it seems he was "getting back" as his father, by being the father he always wanted.

      Yeah, I like their version.  
       

       

  6. You know how when you hang from a bar with your arms, it helps to stretch you back? Well, it seems at a certain weight and/or age, it feels more like your arms are being pulled out of their sockets!

      Not so uncommon, I said, "Doc, when I bend down my knee locks" he said, "Don't bend down"

      you know, it works.

  7. So my wife was just told that the teachers are responsible for cleaning their classrooms with only cleaning supplies provided by the school. I'm sorry, but isn't that a WCB violation when teachers have no WHMIS certification? What right does the School Board have forcing Teachers to use chemicals to clean? If the government wants to open schools June 1st, why are they not providing certified cleaning staff? Teachers should be teaching. @stawns
  8. I agree with you about Scheer.
  9. Or those that voted for him are similar to those that voted for Trump.
  10. Sure, if you think racist bigots are "pretty damn fine".
  11. Interesting, yet my wife was just told that they (teachers) are NOT allowed to wear masks in the classroom.

  12. No, I'm posting because I feel like it - to create awareness. Natural? LOL - he's an embarrassment to all Canadians.
