Acronyms annoying

Would it kill the sports writers to put the words “Royal Bank of Canada” somewhere in their articles about the RBC Heritage golf tournament in Hilton Head, S.C. (formerly the Heritage Classic)? All I have seen all week long is RBC this and RBC that, and I had to finally use Google and Wikipedia to figure out who or what the heck RBC was.

America should have never had slavery

Bulldog

I have seen your "change" and you can keep it. You and your ilk support looting, death,vandalism, and racism, and I don't think America is ready for that. With Mr. Floyd's death there was a chance to make some inroads to a more unified America, but BLM hijacked that and destroyed any hope of a brighter future. BLM doesn't care about African Americans. They are a marxists organization funded by leftist globalist whose sole intent is to destroy America. If BLM actually cared anything about African Americans they would be in Chicago, Detroit, Baltimore, and the rest of the cities controlled by democrats where murder of black people by the dozens weekly is a common thing. And to your other point more white people are killed by police than black people. There wouldn't be any killings if people just learned to behave. All people have to do is treat the police like you want to be treated. If you're truly innocent go peacefully and live to state your case. All the killings by police have been mostly because the suspects escalated the situation.

BillNancy

There were NINE (9) unarmed black people killed by police in 2019. There were 19 unarmed white people killed by police in 2019 and 89 policemen killed in the line of duty in 2019.

Your information is inaccurate Mr. Oelfke.

But the fact remains those numbers for black and white deaths would be very small if people wouldn't resist and cooperate. They will have their day in court if they don't act stupid.

Where does Ms Mack say she supports rioters, looters, etc? Protestors are different than looters, however, you want to group them all as criminals although most are using their given rights to protest peacefully. Creating and spreading lies doesn’t help, Bulldog, and it’s clear you want to be a part of the problem. Life is too short to be so angry, Bulldog, and you aren’t even the one being profiled by police because of your skin color. And are you really that naive to believe if you “treat the police the way you want to be treated” all will be okay? I wonder why that theory didn’t work for my 6 ft tall Black teenage son And his Hispanic friend who were pulled over by police a block from our house during the day while walking to a friends house? My teenager was handcuffed for no reason other than to see why these kids of color where walking in a predominantly white neighborhood. My son now physically stiffens when police are around because he doesn’t know if they are going to randomly stop him for being himself. I guess courtesy, answering all questions, cooperation, and saying yes sir, no sir is not how those officers wanted to be treated. It had nothing to do with how you treat the officers and you are worse off than I thought if you truly believe that.

Bulldog

What did you do about it? It is up to you to raise holy #3ll until action is taken against those officers. And believe it or not I would support you 100% Those type of officers need to be removed ASAP

natives5

Thanks, Bulldog. I am pleasantly surprised by your response and feel hopeful. Action is being taken on behalf of my son.

Bulldog

And you should be proud they were mature enough to not escalate the situation.

natives5

I should not have to be proud that my child handled a situation better than trained professionals sworn to protect and serve us all equally. One reason why people of all colors and political affiliations are protesting.

Bulldog

I agree, and most of the protesters were doing so peacefully. A lot of the problems were caused by spoiled rotten little white kids that thinks it is cool to be a marxist

natives5

I am thankful the situation turned out okay, Bulldog, don’t get me wrong (and no disrespect to you).

Bulldog

It's cool

Bulldog

Perhaps Mr. Morris could look into this.

I find it sadly ironic that you ended your letter calling for love and respect, since your letter contains neither.

PJBM626

Did I understand she is ok with monument destruction? Why not Obama’s. I mean they destroyed Grants and Lincoln’s. Both fought to end slavery at the cost of 900,000 white deaths.Lincoln had to fight dems to overthrow slavery . Why isn’t the dem party need to be torn down? Grant also fought the democrats supporting KKK

Here’s justice folks are looking for at police rally which Morris or dem owned propaganda media won’t print

Well, I wasn't going to participate in this thread, because it's exhausting to make sense out of this it. First point - Donna Mack simply stated: "the police are killing black people daily." Literally, that's not true, but she is entitled in making a point. So Bull retorts with something about white/black ratos: "more white people are killed by police than black people. That is a diatribe on June 2 on Hannity by Larry Elder, who said more whites than blacks, etc. Elder's studies have a small sample size. So, BillNancy parroted Elder, but he was corrected by Michael Morris reply: "Your information is inaccurate Mr. Oelfke," with link to Politifact.com, which clearly explains the ratios. That could have ended this nonsense blathering. ---

Second point, which got me looking. PJMB, it's helpful to elaborate on links (5-statistics-you-need-know). It's a valid discussion of 2016 statistics from Dailywire.com (a conservative site). That link disputes the 2019 statistics (small sample not statistically valid) by Elder on Hannity (more whites than blacks, etc.). Dailywire says: The "concentration of criminal violence in minority communities means that officers will be disproportionately confronting armed and often resisting suspects in those communities...." Yes of the total numbers, more whites are killed but the population is 62% white, 19% black, so blacks are disproportionately killed Fox News info that folks out there are seeing and passing on is NOT RATIONAL on the statistics. ---

Also, I throwing out links with no discussion is of no value (back-the-blue-rallies-happening-nationwide) Please state: why did you post that link, how does it relate, what do you mean by it? ---

Finally, today you UNFAIRLY criticize: "Morris and the ... media won't print" a random web based article by lawenforecementtoday.com (WHO DAT?). Your link seems to show that the police are doing what the ralliers are asking for???? Firstly, The Facts has a dearth of articles off the "AP Wire" and probably wouldn't cover a shooting in D.C. Secondly, at the time, it was covered by WashingtonPost.com, NPR.org, MSN.COM.; plus, WUSA9.com says an arrest has been made.

News links provided to give truth which dem propaganda media like AP won’t print. AP has been caught printing lies and proven wrong so many times they aren’t the news service they once were. The main story , if you read it, is the news Morris and dem media won’t print, so needs to be put out there. Black women want those killing young Blacks in their neighborhoods brought to justice and actions taken. We know the murder rate in Chicsgo and Baltimore for example. July 4th weekend in Chicsgo alone 17 were murdered. Some were children. So they want the police

PJMB sorry to belabor all this. I understand WHY you have links, and I commend you for providing sources; but what I tried to say was provide a little of your thoughts about the link and what it says. Then readers are satisfied with what is being presented. -----

The Associated Press is an independent global news organization dedicated to factual reporting. Founded in 1846, AP today remains the most trusted source of fast, accurate, unbiased news in all formats and the essential provider of the technology and services vital to the news business. It operates as a cooperative, unincorporated association. Its members are U.S. newspapers and broadcasters. (wikipedea) ----- Which story you refer to as "the main story?" ----- I agree that Black women want child killers brought to justice, but if you would google those 17 deaths you would find a lot of black on black crime; Chicago crime has exploded especially over the 4th caused by BLM rioters and hoodlums. Pardon me mentioning lots of your comments are conservative and what blacks want (BLM) would be a liberal take on it. Do the black women want the police to do their work or be unfunded?

PJBM626

Thanks for positive comments. Good point to add comments to links. Please study BLM They are a Marxist organization and are guilty of killing innocent people during their protests and racists at the top

The inner city death rates are a real tragedy in America and the media is silent. My thoughts on this is, Media is quite because run by Black dems for 60 years. The loss of young Blacks and children in this violence is equally if not more tragic ,due to numbers, than police killings

I believe some of the Black mothers were supporting police and I’ve seen many stories where the residents told BLM to get out of their neighborhoods. But we won’t see this in mainstream media

I disagree on AP. Check how they ran their stories on Kavanagh and Trumps impeachment just to name big ones. Not one story was true

Nor did they give two sides to the story. All one sided
