Not sure why anyone bothers with Fox food fights. But, then, I clicked on this thread, didn't I?  :chairbang:

No Geraldo, 'they' won't choose sides based on race. 

Racists will choose sides based on race but to imply that everyone will do so is simply projecting your racism onto everyone else...

Well said! And absolutely true!

I see nothing wrong with Rivera's remarks above.

Of course it's impolite to say so, but today almost everything is "seen differently" from the opposite sides of the "racial prism".

Indeed, it is a "prism" insofar as race is concerned.

Shine one scenario of events through the racial prism, and "white perceptions" will emanate from one side, and "black perceptions" will emanate from the other -- in effect, emerging as "separate truths".

In such a trial, one set of facts will produce "white truth" amongst white jurors, and "black truth" amongst the blacks.

Of course, the good members of the GOP Briefing Room would like to believe that they're above such gritty reality.

But the reality of race today is what it is.
It is not what we "believe it to be".

These are the same bimbos who said that women prefer bad, dangerous men and men who treat women with respect need to go away.

And Geraldo is and always will be a moron.

All men are created equal. But, cultures are not. They're different and unique. That's why there is a Little Italy, a Chinatown, German-town, Spanish Harlem etc., and similar enclaves in countries around the world. We simply are comfortable with our own.

Thus I reluctantly agree with Geraldo (as much as that pains me).

You have swallowed Jefferson's rhetoric. It was a magnanimous and noble notion, embodying the spirit of The Enlightenment, but it has no basis in reality.

And, once again, I will repeat what Ayn Rand once said:
"We can evade reality, but we cannot evade the consequences of evading reality"

Once, more we are witnessing the consequences of evading reality in Ferguson, Missouri...

Because they're 'fair and balanced'...    :silly:

The difference is that we are trying to be objective and fact-based, not declaring that everyone is subjective based on race and regardless of the facts.

To me, that's a big difference...
