      d4n's posts reek of ignorance and white privilege. I gave up trying to talk sense into these types a while back. I don't have the energy, nor the will to argue with Trumpkins

      ^ PS I am not white; I am Sikh and I have had to deal with my own share of racist attacks. 

       

      But what I am saying is advocating rights for one group of people while completely ignoring everyone itself is selfish and discriminatory. 

       

      What I don't understand is why people aren't advocating for better police training..

       

      End of agreement.

      The all-lives matter bit just minimizes the issue of racial inequality, and there's clearly an issue with that down in the US and even in Canada. It's pretty obvious some lives aren't valued the same as others. Dismissing race as unimportant because it's a social construct is also naive, because despite being a construct it has historically had significant impact upon society's around the world and continues to do so.

       

      The same could be said of gender, gender and sex are different things. Sex refers to biological differences between males and females, such as genitals and genetic differences. Gender on the other hand is a social construct and is less easily defined. If you argue that all genders matter a lot of people are going to respond with bigotry though. 

       

      Also, using wikipedia as a source is pretty weak. Yes, whites make up a large chunk of the US prison system but they also make up a significantly larger chunk of the actual US population. It's much more nuanced than simply saying whites end up in prison more. 

       

      The US has the largest prison population in the world. This number will vary but this source is pretty recent. As of May 2019 the US imprisoned 655 people per 100,000. I'll even use a US source. https://www.usnews.com/news/best-countries/articles/2019-05-13/10-countries-with-the-highest-incarceration-rates?fbclid=IwAR3mBzGtmZAb9kLqj9qpAsyymecuDV3pAZPtFdh7eccbaGQ-GSUjYkrDEws

       

      A quick google search tells me that as of May 2019 the US had a population of roughly 328 million people. 655 imprisoned per 100,000 in a population of 328M makes for quite the prison population. Again, those numbers have likely changed. 

       

      Now here's the thing, minorities in the US make up a disproportionate chunk of inmates in and attached to the prison system based on how much of the American population they actually make up. I've even got a source for it with it's sources listed that involved actual research, unlike a wiki article anyone can edit. https://www.sentencingproject.org/publications/color-of-justice-racial-and-ethnic-disparity-in-state-prisons/?fbclid=IwAR3yQgTBo4ZE5KW0XXG0yltZFd6C8ZzwbffOtcjqllOxPF7yTr3BrmZ35gE

       

      The number has probably changed slightly, but as of 2016 1 in 55 U.S. adults (nearly 2 percent) was on probation or parole. That's a huge number. https://www.pewtrusts.org/en/research-and-analysis/issue-briefs/2018/09/probation-and-parole-systems-marked-by-high-stakes-missed-opportunities?fbclid=IwAR1qdHy8ZtfjqK7e6yzeBmJXDM_htiAUALh3gdC4bVQ3xtqAKtWwqL1tPnA

       

      Why does that matter? Disenfranchisement, in this case it's the removal of one's right to vote. Being a convicted felon seriously impacts one's ability to vote, and how it impacts one's ability to vote and for how long varies from state to state and the legalities likely shift from time to time thanks to a number of reasons (who's in power in a state at any given time, public opinion, legal challenges, ect). https://www.ncsl.org/research/elections-and-campaigns/felon-voting-rights.aspx?fbclid=IwAR1qdHy8ZtfjqK7e6yzeBmJXDM_htiAUALh3gdC4bVQ3xtqAKtWwqL1tPnA

       

      Now, let's be real here, the US has historically been $&!#ty to minorities and those in power don't like giving up that power. In the US those in power can use the system in place to directly impact voting totals and who can and cannot vote. If you don't think those in power aren't also aware that they can directly impact the minority vote by charging them with felonies for reasons both legitimate and not I don't know what to tell ya.


      Minorities in the US don't just have to contend with racism and all it entails, but with a system that can actively be utilized to suppress their vote. So come closer to election time, if you read that minorities in the US aren't voting it's not just because they're not interested (some won't be, a lot of people choose not to vote for various reasons) but likely because many of them simply aren't legally able to.

  3. Only my opinion but this playoffs will suck.

     

    Emotions get high and no fighting allowed?

    Bet there won't be much physical contact either.

     

    Love hockey as much as the next person but it won't be the same.

      @Chicken. I never knew that..which I probably should because literally live 2 mins from there..You learn something new everyday...stupid corporations, stealing my childhood!

       

      @Heretic  I played most of my minor hockey there. Still drop by sometimes for stick and puck and drinking a few pints @ 'The Thirsty Penguin'.

      Yep, we got the B-8, numerous other practice facilities around downtown, games could be held at Rogers Arena, Pacific Colosseum, UBC, hotel accommodation everywhere, and we're not getting demolished by the virus. (vs other provinces, states) How is Vancouver not the perfect hub city?

  5. I wouldn't be caught dead in public like this but since I am in quarantine , i am wearing a Colorado Avs t-shirt..Yes i feel dirty but it came free with my beer and surprisingly comfortable and it will be my dogs new toy tomorrow.

      Wouldn't mind wearing it around Calgary last year after they exposed the Flamers for the joke that they are.

      If we beat Minni in the proposed play-ins, we would play the Avs in the first round. Hopefully the Canucks could play around with the Avs like your dog will play with the shirt.

      @nux4lyfe Haha I have not heard anyone call tandoori wings spicy before (then again my palate's probably all effed up seeing how I used to like spice and probably at least some of that still lingers)

  7. Best thing I've seen in a long time :

     

  8. Stay with the 'stick and rink' with Johnny Canuck for shoulder patch once and for all. We have an identity crisis.
  9. Sometimes I make a Titanic joke to break the ice.

  10. The 'Incredible Bongo Band' Vinyl (proud owner) was one of the most sampled records in hip hop history. It was recorded in Vancouver which makes Vancouver ground zero for hip hop history, Yes, We started this ish!
