    Tamara & Tia lost their niece (Tamara's husband side) in the shooting.

    For me, it was the Sandy Hook shooting, I knew if nothing was done after that, we'd never do anything about guns.
    Let a few more POC be the shooters and NOT target other POC-you will see laws changed NRA be damned.


    But whenever we bring up the subject of mental health, the same Republicans say that we don't have the money in the budget for it.
    The budget is there. They just don't want to do what needs to be done. Weed out abusers of welfare and other services that they don't really need. The issue is those abusers are NOT mainly POC. Enforce laws properly you don't have overcrowd jails of POC for silly charges in some states.

    You can find a lot of money when you clear out DEAD weight.

    White males who perpetrate these mass shooting are so random. White women calling the police on black folks (or just harassing them) do so for the most absurd reasons. The common thread is that folks are engaging in every day life, doing the most mundane of activities, and then one person unleashes hell.
    Because you have folks who have gotten DRUNK off of what Number 45 and many OTHERS before him have preached.
    POC & LGBT are taking over and you need to FIGHT back.

    Doesn't all this mirror what is going on in comics??? How many "folks" have preached SJW is taking over? How many creators of color & LGBT have been attacked by one main demographic?

    I wanna get laaaaaid! Wanna get laid so baaaad! Women don't put out, so now I feel saaaad!
    I'm a straight white male, I don't deserve to fail!
    Why these chicks put out for Chads? Why do they drop skirts for Brads?
    It's not my fault, cuz they're all whores! And I can't stands it anymore!
    Shoot-shoot-shoot-shoot-shoot up a bar! I'm gonna drive down there in my mama's car!
    If I can't shoot my load in a girl! Then I'mma shoot my loads at the wooooorld!
    I'm not giving up, all right? (alt right). I still wanna die, even though I'm white.
    Life can never end well! When you deny all your lovin' to a loving incel, oh yeeeeeeeah!


    But seriously, all those people should be erased from God's notebook. Sometimes I feel like we all live in an issue of "What if?"

    One of the most recent shooters was a confirmed "comicsgater". The hate is all coming from the same place, crazy white supremacists that are overly threatened by minorities. It was never about "identity politics", it was always about minorities getting too big for their "britches" and simply stopping them.

    As per domestic terror, it's nothing for black people, it's been happening for centuries. Some crazy white people have (and still) terrorized black and other minorities for centuries and when they couldn't openly rape them, lynch them or some such, they resorted to "institutionalization" of their cause, hence racist cops and the likes.

    To paraphrase what I saw in another thread, white supremacy and institutionalized racism is very much an American thing. White manifest destiny (which is one of the pillars of White Supremacy) is very much an American philosophy that was just adopted by the Europeans. Nazi Germany, Racist South Africa e.t.c were simply inspired by what they saw in the US, the US is the home and originator of violent, institutionalized, anti-minority terrorism. And it has never stopped because too many non-minorities simply turn a blind eye to it. That ultimately is what pushed Trump into power, he's saying what they really feel and are too afraid to say publicly. As Dave Chapelle said, Trump didn't suddenly make America more racist, he's only singing their greatest hits.

    The bottom part seems like a bit of an exaggeration, unless i am misreading it a bit.

    Then throw in your Elves, Dwarves and Hobbits with Orcs at the bottom.

    The best a normal Human could do in the world of Tolkien power/skillwise is end up like Faramir or Boromir.

    IMO, Tolken wasn't so much about chosen ones as he was about these people are better than these other people by definition.
    You hit the nail on the head when it comes to Tolkien. When I was a kid and first watched The Lord of the Rings I was obsessed with Tolkien's work. Now as an adult I look back on it as being so banal and black/white with it's morality and philosophy. It's also quite racist as well, there are POC in Middle Earth but they're all vassals of Sauron who are summoned to fight for him against the forces of good. But Tolkien's work influenced pretty much every work of fantasy to come after it in one way or another, similar to how Lovecraft was blatantly racist but no one else was as influential to modern horror fiction.

    Maybe a bit.

    But I literally cannot think of another country that held onto racism from slavery through to segregation for as long as the US did. That sort of thing leaves a very deep mark on the country's psyche. But the part about apartheid and co isn't an exaggeration, those guys were heavily influenced by what they saw in the US.

    This is just my opinion, but funding and de-emphasizing the stigma of seeking treatment for mental health may solve a lot of issues with gun violence, domestic violence, and substance abuse. I believe we might see a decrease in recidivism.

    It pains me to say this, but this country might as well be called the United States of Arkham.

    Tien can always say that he dated Launch, that counts for something. Also dude went to fight Frieza's army not once but twice.



    As a Gohan fan I'm biased but I would've loved to him take over but Goku is just too popular to retire I believe. Still would've been fun to see Gohan the reluctant warrior as the hero of Earth.
    I enjoyed the Gundam 00 series. I have yet to watch the film.

    It would have been interesting if they shelved Goku a little bit longer. I actually wanted to see Gohan beat Vegeta one-on-one.

    Not just stigma but also affordable.

    Psychiatrist/psychologist are not cheap.

    And plus, some of this is bullshit. white males arent the only demographic with mental health issues

    I can't why, but your reference got me thinking about the Marvel version of R. Kelly (known for putting an entire group on blast), and an underage girl.

    He clearly did not read the Wolverine handbook on how to pull hot chicks of every ethnicity, nationality, social class, skin tone (literally), etc., despite being short, hairy, un-shaved, unemployed, and dressed like a plaid out cowboy.

    The handbook will also show how you can get nasty with your best friend's mom (Mystique), and still be cool with your bro (Nightcrawler).

    Folks just don't read enough comics.

    You are right about the price for receiving treatment. It should be affordable. These head shrinks are not that different than pharmaceutical companies seeking top dollar over helping those in need.

    I agree, it is not just white males. Plenty POC suffer from some of mental illness. That is why I said the stigma of seeking treatment needs to done away with. It should be seen as sign of strength, not weakness. A lot of the violence in the inner city comes from some self-hate which is a form of mental illness, to me.

    I singled out white males do to the often conservative/ethnocentric belief that liberals, women, and POC all have self-destructive problems, but them.

    He's stronger than Yamcha, a dude that stopping trying to catch up by the end of Z.

    THAT'S IT.

    The minute anybody in Z, Roshi, Krillian, Gohan begins training, no matter how long the layoff was that character will shoot so far past Ten in the power rankings that its hilarious.

    In Super Gohan's "I didn't train all, I also forgot how to go Super Sayan and lost all my muscle gains, bro" form is far stronger than Ten who lives to train.

    Tenshinan's entire reason for being is futile, its a good thing for him, he doesn't seem to notice
    The sad part is that Tien, Yamcha and Krillin would be God-Tier in a number of shonen, video game or superhero universes based on pure skill alone.

    Yamcha was confused with Saiyan Saga Goku by Gero, you know 'Singlehandedly stalemate life wiper Vegeta' Goku. Yamcha would kick the shit out of a majority of settings.

    Yamcha is the only one of the fighters in the group who's won frankly. Hes got a quiet life that doesn't revolve around life-or-death fights where he's definitely going to be murdered since he's not an alien, dude is probably still powerful enough to fight 50% of the JL on even terms and has a enjoyable job as a pro baseball player. All we need is to see him in a happy relationship and he's set.
