    Optimus Prime and Megatron's respective philosophies have a lot in common with the Assassins and Templars

    i only bring this up because this happened down the street from where my cousin lives.
    I am consistently blown away that this shit still happens. Sadly, it blows me away because I'm white (and male), so I've never got this in my life. I'm sure if that were not the case, it wouldn't be a surprise, which is equally horrific to consider.

    It's mind-numbingly unfair and disgusting.

    well the good news is that the guy survived the encounter. can't believe i have to say that in this day and age.

    then of course, you have those who try to justify the cop's actions, despite violating standard protocol. it happens all the time when a cop kills a unarmed black man/kid here.

    just a few weeks ago, a cop pulls a guy over for no real reason. then when the guy complies with the cop's orders to show him his ID, the cop freaks out and shoots at him. then he lies and said the guy was "being aggressive and led him on a chase around the car". how do i know this is a lie? because the dash cam footage competely contridicts everything the cop said.

    Behhhhh....cripes. Yeah, I read about shootings, and again...it blows my mind. And it keeps happening, and it still gets washed over, and very little seems to change. Only positive thing is that in this day and age, there are cameras everywhere so more of this crap is getting put out in the open.

    For all the good that does. :(

    Racism in various forms happens EVERYWHERE (along with other 'isms', if you get my drift), but the US seems to be a freaking powderkeg these days when it comes to that (and other things, but we're talking about racism right now, racial violence, racial divides, racial inequity, etc, etc). I'm personally wondering when mass, sweeping violence will explode in the US, aka some kind of race war.

    part of it also the media. some talking head will downgrade these incidents by looking into the background of the person killed and will find any reason to justify the cop kill him by focusing on one thing about him.

    it's dehumanizing to be murdered by a cop and then having your image slammed by people who don't know you or your struggle.

    It's 2019. We should be well-beyond this. Like, crazy-past it.

    We're freaking crawling along, if that. These days, we're probably inching backward.

    Plunderer is going to have an anime adaptation. I’m very excited about it. It has some of the coolest displays of speed since GetBackers.

    So, Terminator: Dark Fate will have James Cameron returning as a producer and the movie will ignore all of the previous sequels except for Terminator 2. That seems the new trend in Hollywood. Hopefully, they can do the same to The Predator and Aliens. Predator 4, Alien 3 and Resurrection should be removed from continuity and memory.

    Forget probably, we are inching backwards. I wouldn't be surprised in the least if someone seriously made a case for bringing some version of the Jim Crow laws back.
