1. Run for office.
But a bad law IS an excuse from the law. Fuck that shit. Defend free speech!
That is true. It's one of the more useful aspects of religion. But religion has historically been used to justify racism more than fight against racism, so we are better off with some kind of secular humanism. (Call it religion if you want)
I think there are some studies that show that even black cops shoot black people more than white people.
This is how science works. The experiment does not make claims outside of the experimental parameters. If you interpret that as implying some sort of claim about white people versus black people, that's your problem. Go research other studies to fill in the gaps.
What is natural is not the same as what is right. Sure, I can totally accept that the natural inclination of humans is to be racist. We don't have to search to hard in history for cases of tribes annihilating tribes, or nations annihilating nations. It's science, so we should not try to advance beyond this savagery.
I don't think you understand the point of 'political correctness'. The point is not to deny the base nature within you, but to fight it.
Wrong, they are all racists. I know there are some people who think that blacks can't be racist, but you don't earn any points for using them in your argument.
There probably weren't enough black psychology student volunteers from the Italian schools they took data from to generate useful statistics.
My guess is that all people are kind of racist. There are all sorts of studies showing this. Does that make you feel better? Not me...
Well, with real property, if you purchased stolen property, you normally have to give it up when it is discovered, whether or not you knew it was stolen. The thief would owe you restitution, but good luck collecting it. I don't see why it would be different in this case. Sure, some bit coins got shuffled around, but if we can easily identify which coins were stolen, we should be able to legally recover them, whether or not the current possessors did the stealing or not.
The point is, war could be cheap for one side, and very expensive for another. Who cares if the enemy bleeds? (That's a rhetorical question.)
I'm not sure this is to your advantage. If you don't have the keys, how will you stop them from torturing you?
Now you've got my interest. What is it, some kind of pedal snow tank?
they'll be moving to places with more sensible security policies
Doesn't webMD say something to the extent of, "This website is not intended to provide medical advice." after each page of medical advice?
I suppose this is the natural progression from a capitalist economy, but it isn't ideal. There will always be animosity from the haves toward the have-nots for being forced to pay welfare from what they rightfully "earned", and the have-nots toward the haves for owning the vast majority of shares.
