    Look, I'm not saying we're becoming a rathole evil country, but...

    Some migrant parents who have been reunited with their young children say the children no longer recognize them, The New York Times reported Tuesday.

    The parents told the newspaper that after waiting months to see their children again, the kids cried and didn’t recognize them.

    “He didn’t recognize me,” one parent, Mirce Alba Lopez, told the Times of her 3-year-old son. “My joy turned temporarily to sadness.”
    The parents also said the children believed that the other children they were detained with were their siblings.

    The families who spoke with the Times were reunited Tuesday after a court ordered the Trump administration to reunify the families separated at the border under a since-ended administration policy.

    If it were up to me, I'd rather you take up the other posters' request to talk about music than debate the "pro-black/white guilt radicalism" behind the recent Black Panther film but as we all know by now, you will do you, as expected.

    That said, if you want more info, it's out there -- my point was that Republican obstructionism was what shot down Obama's bipartisan immigration bill that had already passed the Senate.

    What's the point of talking "measures" and "compromise" when the opposition won't even come to the table for a vote -- none, which is why I didn't bother.
    The gist of our disagreement, then, is that I don't think obstructionism adequately explains the long history of gridlock between the two parties regarding the maintenance of border security.

    Perfect example of how cowardly corporate media is. I particularly like the contrast presented between 'objectivity' and 'neutrality'. I long for a day when objectivity rules the media, rathervthan neutrality...
    There is no such thing as an ethical Republican while the party supports and excuses Donald Trump in bringing the dogshit salad of fascism and bigotry to the potluck of American politics. Also, ACAB and eat the rich!

    I figured that... which is why I won't post any more detailed replies to you that include facts that back up my assertions -- if I reply at all.

    No point in wasting my time -- changing your opinion doesn't resolve anything I'm concerned about regardless.

    Precisely. That’s why I was baffled that you and the Punisher seemed to phrase things as if it made a difference if officer white or Hispanic.

    Don't omit the detail that what I wanted was more detail than the cited essay carried.

    To be fair -- it's a legit misunderstanding.

    Peace.

    The instances of white cops showing bias, if not outright bigotry towards people of color like myself are almost legion, and that taints my viewpoint towards them. And while I try not to biased against white cops since only a tiny number of them are badge wearing thugs with axes to grind against blacks or other minorities, I’ll admit it’s hard to remain neutral.

    England is out of the World Cup. That leaves Croatia vs France. So much for a Chunnel Game.

    Profond sympathy. In a perfect world it really wouldn't matter a gnat's gonad what colour or race anybody was. But we both know our world is a wee bit different.

    But essentially I don't see any real difference between a Mexican cop giving a Puerto Rican grief for no reason other than the latter's nationality, and a white cop giving somebody grief for just not being white. The cop ought to be in same amount of trouble either way, I think.

    So all of Democrat's cries that crossing the border is barely a crime at all and should never be treated this harshly has finally been met with the reply of "We'll just MAKE IT a crime that we can punish this harshly!" and then just continuing to do what they're doing. How very predictable.

    So, how long until it becomes a death penalty offense?

    He did more than that as the video showed, and which is why Officer McDonothing is on "PAID" desk duty. He shoulda been cut loose. Dude was drunk and could have proved a threat physically. I'm gonna go out of my way and say she's not a fighter. So it was his job to de-escalate. If she was white and dude was black, Black woulda been tased or dead.

    Been a fan of France since FIFA '98 on the N64 -- the real team lived up to the stats on the game.

    Loved seeing Suarez get knocked out but hated seeing England lose to Croatia -- makes it a lot easier to pick a fave in the Final though.

    Wonder how much of that frustration will transfer over to the Trump protest -- not that the Brits need any more reason to be angry with the man.

    ------
    "Americans in UK warned to keep 'low profile' during Trump visit"

    "The U.S. Embassy in London issued an alert on Tuesday to Americans in the British capital, warning them to keep a low profile during President Donald Trump’s visit later this week in case protests against him turn violent...."

    But certain people on this thread keep telling me Bernie and his Followers (All those Bros like Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Alison Hartson, Nina Turner, Paula Jean-Swearengin, etc.) are the Ron Pauls of the party, and will be forgotten and amount to nothing in the long term.

    Bernie and his crew bring a LOT to the party. They definitely bring the path forward.
    These are the faces of the party, who follow the path laid forth not by the Establishment that despises and downplays them. But the Progressive future.

    MAJORITY OF DEMOCRATS WANT CANDIDATES TO BE MORE LIKE BERNIE SANDERS, POLL FINDS

    57% is not a small number even if you +/- the 3 points

    I think that may be incorrect.

    I've seen one, maybe two, officers on the footage on the news. While I don't know if I could guess at their ethnicity, you do see them.

    I was a bit surprised just to see a forest preserve officer on the job.
