They were having an NRA approved gun safety demonstration but luckily the misfire went off into the waterway this time.

No, the alligators brains aren't big enough to become furious at systemic injustice.

Of course you think the idea that there is a systemic level of police injustice directed at poor and black people. We know all about your attitudes concerning race.

Or who knows? Maybe you're of the opinion that alligators have brains the size of humans....(More like you were making a de facto white supremacist "argument" about the brains of African Americans, though.)

Now off to your gun safety demo with you.

You always make things racist. Why all the liberal drivel? The idea that there is a nationwide conspiracy to be unjust to poor folks and black folks is a fantasy of the Leftists and Al Sharpton and Jesse Jackson. We fought a bloody civil war so that folks would not be in slavery, took a while to end the Jim Crow laws though. I think only the fringe crazies want to go back to slavery days. Nobody in their right mind wants a violent criminal on the loose no matter what race they are, so we call the police on them. Also, folks might be relieved to not have a massive 15 ft alligator prowling around.

This very post of yours and your many others perfectly exemplify the racism on the right. But Tea Baggrz just don't view themselves as bigots. They, of course, think blacks and black culture are inferior, and they'll deny to their dying breaths that the criminal justice system as a whole, including police shootings, has a huge disparity in treatment based on race...even when other factors are controlled for.

So what you get is clinical denial and a complete rejection of easily available data as well as common sense.

Also, someone who tries to argue that the problem of racism ended with Jim Crow is more than racist. That person simply isn't playing with a full deck.

If the article had been about squirrels, I would have made a similar humorous non-racist comment, like "Did the squirrels go nuts and riot and protest?" or "Why are they making a martyr out of Rocky the squirrel after he punched the moose in the eye and broke his antlers off and it turns out Rocky is actually a grizzly bear weighing 1000lbs and has a history of killing mooses"
A white unarmed man was killed by a black police officer, August 12 near Salt lake city. Is it the same? Racist cop? Systematic injustice?http://www.thenewame rican.com/usnews/crime/item/18 965-black-cop-kills-unarmed-wh ite-youth-media-and-feds-silen t

You did not make a joke about squirrels or about alligators.

You made a "joke" about black people who are upset over an unarmed person being shot six times.

Then, when I pointed out that alligators wouldn't riot because their brains aren't big enough, you simply dismissed that as "idiotic"...because, of course, you didn't like my suggestion that the rioters are rioting out of intelligence (under the systemically racist circumstances.)

Then you went into clinical denial mode, while complaining about the usual whipping boys of racists, Jackson and Sharpton, denying any racism on your part whatsoever.

However, I know right wingers don't do close analysis. They go with their gut, and they're always "not racist."

"rioting out of intelligence" LMAO, fck, you are a laugh riot! I think I just shyt my robopants on that one and my positronic brain is having the equivalent to an aneurism, laughed so hard I have tears in my eyes.
If I was being attacked and I shot the attacker, and they asked my why I shot the person X number of times I would say, "I only had X amount in my gun, if I had more, I would have shot more."

And you'd go to prison for "overkill"...unless you're a cop. In which case you get a huge fundraiser on your behalf.(Also, we don't know if the dead teen attacked, or when, or what happened. Partly because the illegally, unwisely delayed, standard police report on the matter is illegally incomplete.)

You didn't make a joke about squirrels. You're lying. You made a joke about a conflict with racial overtones. And after you did so you accused me of making everything about race.... Sick.

And you will never do data or information, like the rest of the conservatives. The stats on disparities according to race (and class, also) in the functioning of "criminal justice" in this country are ample and well known. In other words - the stats simply don't exist as far as tee baggrz are concerned.

Looks like PA is making another silk pursuit out of an alligator bag.
