Just like in the 1970s. Rampant crime drove many retailers/services (banks, gas stations, etc.) out of minority neighborhoods, creating "service deserts."

Cue the screeching that this is just a ploy by whitey to kill off POCs.

Community leaders work with retailers/services to return to service desert areas.

In quite a few cases, those new locations are immediately targeted by criminals.

Now we're seeing the cycle repeat itself.

No, Ms. Presley, this isn't racism causing this. It's the feral animal nature of the people who view these services as "free" that are to blame. In other words, you and yours.

Walgreens should ask Ms Presley whether she's stupid enough to believe what she's saying, or if she thinks her constituents are that stupid.  Because it's one or the other.

The fact she got elected to congress after being in public office for years spewing this crap should answer the constituents question but really why not both?

How can it be discrimination when they are "supporting" all those shoplifters?  It just got to be too expensive to "give away" all their products.  >:D  :facepalm:

Taking away the shoplifting/robbery opportunities from the downtrodden minorities is the racist part.
If ye love wealth better than liberty, the tranquility of servitude better than the animating contest of freedom, go home from us in peace. We ask not your counsels or your arms. Crouch down and lick the hands which feed you. May your chains set lightly upon you, and may posterity forget that you were our countrymen.

Happy white supremacy month.

All you all should be proud of the great accomplishment of this nation in taking in a people who were basically living a stone age sustenance life in a tribal environment and in under three centuries transformed them into relatively functional members of a complex western civilization. They all haven't made the grade, but I'm comfortable saying the vast majority have made the cut.

Kudos to you. 

Whether the project was worthwhile or a net positive I'll leave for others to decide.
For the invisible things of him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity, that they may be without excuse. Because knowing God, they didn’t glorify him as God, and didn’t give thanks, but became vain in their reasoning, and their senseless heart was darkened. Professing themselves to be wise, they became fools.

I assume you're referring to the Atlantic slave trade.

White Jesus followers are racist or something.

And IIRC, those traders were usually muslim traders.  They either hired African tribes to make war on other tribes and take captives or they just had those tribes kidnap people to be sold as slaves.

Not standing for the "black national anthem"

Quote
A Democratic congressman raised some eyebrows online Sunday when he took a shot at the Super Bowl crowd in Las Vegas, saying very few fans stood for the singing of "Lift Every Voice and Sing," calling it "not a very pretty picture."

Known colloquially as the "Black National Anthem," Grammy winner Andra Day performed the song as part of the pre-game festivities for Super Bowl LVIII between the Kansas City Chiefs and San Francisco 49ers.

"Very very few stood for ‘Lift Every Voice and Sing,’" Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Tenn. wrote on X. "The Negro National Anthem. Not a pretty picture of Super Bowl crowd." Cohen represents a majority-Black district in western Tennessee.

Why would I stand for that?  I don't stand for the Canadian National Anthem either.

I'm not all wound up they sang it, they sing several songs before the game (apparently) but is anyone crying about how many people were standing for Post Malone's "America the Beautiful" rendition?

Yeah, it's a sportsball game, so who cares if that's a song they play, and who cares if anyone stands for it or not (other than, as Dogmush alluded to, the argument that I don't stand for a foreign country's anthem either)?

So let them have their little song at the sportsball match, but if you play it at official government functions and expect me to stand for it or otherwise honor it, we've got a big problem, commie.

I might even harvest a *expletive deleted*ck or two from my nearly barren field if they were to replace the Star Spangled Banner with this song, or any other "anthem"* at a big sports event.  Adding it to the playlist can't make me care.  Nor do I care about the race-baiter's scolding except to point out that if indeed it's the "Negro National Anthem" as he claims, it's not mine, so why would I treat it differently from any other "not my" song?** In reality that dick is engagement farming on Twitter, successfully.  He probably managed to screenshot some responses in the dumpster fire to put on the powerpoint at his next fundraiser highlighting ascendant white supremacy.

* Except maybe "The Anthem" by Good Charolette.  That song's a banger.

** Were I to be at a sporting event in another country, and they played that country's National Anthem, I would probably stand quietly out of respect for my hosts, but no hand over the heart or anything.  That seems like the polite thing to do.

Basically anything that will help kids including black kids improve themselves and get ahead in life is attacked as racist now.
Stupid people are easier to manipulate

They said:

Quote
World Literature and Composition students were told that “Worship of the Written Word” is white supremacy because it is “an erasure of the wide range of ways we communicate with each other.”

Which is interesting, because how else are we supposed to communicate with people and civilizations that have been dead for hundreds or thousands of years?

You're not, 99% of those writings came from non-black civs so they are to be erased from history
