Hello! If you're gonna ****ing speak up for an entire race, why not take accountability for that? Why ignore that?

Oh because he's a dipshit with 2 braincells and the media eats it up for ratings/money because race brings in the views

There's no serious race issues in America and a very small problem with police brutality yet you morons let the media control you with their bogus clickbaity stories and headlines

The media created whatever issues are present right now, and if people would just stop talking about this shit and move on then things would go a lot smoother. But that can't happen, because the average american just isn't a bright person with self-satisfying goals


Other than the bold, you are spot on and reflect my feelings towards this nonsense

Nor did WEB Dubois found it. That is a ridiculous claim.
Where did I say he founded it??? He is called the father of social science and I showed you where and why. You never addressed any of that but have offered this long soliloquy where you engage yourself with your own nonsense.

I stated three times that his approach is what merited his title. Do you know what approach means?

Hahahahaha, Bwhahahaha, wow, are you going to embarrass yourself with your shortcut monarch notes again: Putin was a paper pusher for the KGB when he was director of the entire intelligence agency because you didn't finish reading the wikepedia article? Trust me nobody but you has said all human beings are an interchangeable data point. That's you rocking that hermit talk to yourself style again.
