As a Canadian and being brown myself, I don't have a problem with it. In fact I think it's hilarious. There's always context to everything, and he never did it with mal intent. In fact JTs cabinet ministers are the most multicultural in Canadian history. His defense minister is Sikh.

He's not racist, just liked to clown around as a kid. Things also change from generation to generation. Something like this would not be offensive back in 2001. In fact he'd probably be seen as a brotha back then. Nowadays things are different though, lots of snow flakes around.

@jeezers: to me it depends how old these 'children' were. Anything 14 and under is obviously wrong. 15 and over, these are young adults who know difference between right and wrong already and consciously made their own choices. That's where things get murky. The age of consent in most states is 16 and a few are below that at 14. Do you punish someone who did not push the victims or pressure them in anyway to do what they did? Why again should victims who were 16-17 get a single dime from any lawsuit? Again, younger children should be given some compensation if there were any.

So apparently he signed his assets away to his brother before suicide. The question is do the "victims" get any money from lawsuits if the criminal is dead and prosecution is unable to prove the facts in court?

I put victims in quotation marks because some of the women were already 17 years old and clearly knew what they were doing when getting close to these dirty old men. Their mind was full of Benjamin's, nothing else, and they chose to be there. Question is, if you can really call these nearly 18 'minors' as victims.

Many powerful people didn't want him speaking and probably threatened him to commit suicide. US is corrupt af, just as corrupt as the Mexican and south American governments are. I hope people wake up from this illusion that US is just, and represents freedom and righteousness. If Uncle Sam wants someone dead, they're going to end up dead. If Uncle Sam wants to keep someone alive, they will be strapped to a bed in a straight jacket, and sedated.

I heard prince Andrew was involved with epstein... tarnishing the reputation of the monarchy. That's just how high this goes and it's not even the tip of the iceberg.

Well, it's not like Obama himself created an amazing economy, he just let the pros do their jobs without getting in their way. He did set a mandate though on sustainable clean energy and a bunch of other progressive ideas. The thing is, Obama just made a bunch of common sense scientifically sound decisions while listening to the academics.

Trump just came in and wrecked a lot of that mandate at the federal level and instead of listening to people much much much much smarter than him, the moron followed his "gut instinct". He's wrong, but whatever the case there's nothing he can do at the state level, which was already aligned with Obama policies from the start. In fact, I think trump is creating a ton of long term damage with his reckless tax cuts to the rich, and deregulating the environmental policies.

He won't last long though, Democrats will destroy the Republicans next year, there's not even a shred of doubt. When that happens, the Democrats will make tons of changes.

The only thing trump has right is his hard line stance on illegal immigration and his lack of interest in starting new wars.

@ronvalencia: bill Clinton was president from 1993 to 2001. Bush was president from 2001 to 2009 when the cliff on your graph shows up. Also manufacturing employment declining in the US has less to do with china or other countries or any president and much much more to do with automation/AI. The hill Billy's might deny it but automation ravaged maybe 70% of manufacturing jobs lost to date. Outsourcing is responsible for a much smaller fraction.

@LJS9502_basic said:@blaznwiipspman1 said: Ronald Regan was a crooked son of a bitch. Not even a real president, just an actor. The only thing he had going for him were his speeches which were probably written by someone else. This moron did more to damage the US and other countries than any other president except maybe Bush Jr.

While not of fan of either Reagan or GWBush………..trump is by the biggest danger.

Trump is bad for sure, the tarrifs, the crippling debt/deficits, awful foreign policy and his stance on climate change (which is uneducated). But compared to Bush or Regan who did all of the above PLUS invaded foreign countries, destabilized governments...trumps been a miracle worker. Anyone saying Bush isn't the worst president, just isn't being honest. His brother Jeb was humiliated on stage by Trump so badly that another Bush becoming president is probably unlikely.

@blaznwiipspman1: I'm not saying their not terrible because they are. The people who did this are the scum of the earth. But the facts are comparatively speaking these attacks are extremely rare. And with the media coverage you would think that any person of color is facing a major threat from white people. When factually speaking white people are far more likely to be murdered by people of color. But when that actually happens it takes a few days before you can even figure out the perpetrator was black/Hispanic/etc. But when a white person does it? It's a hate crime and a cause for concern because of white supremacy.

The media bias on the issue is glaring.

again, comparing murders to suicides/diseases doesn't make sense. The only good thing about these terrorists is that they aren't organized and mostly act independently. If they ever start forming groups like the Islamic terrorist cells or the Czechs in Russia, etc, then the kill count could sky rocket much higher.

I don't know what media coverage you're talking about, but its true that blacks are suspected of crimes more than other groups. Its probably fair because of rampant crime in many parts of black society but the people probably turned to crime due to lack of opportunities and systemic racism. As for white people being more likely to be killed by people of color, that's just poor people targeting rich people. Legit hate crimes by people of color towards white are not as common as the other way around. When you see a white person targeting a black or other racial minority, the motive is different most of the time. That's why they specifically call it hate crimes.

One of the reasons bullying is resented by many people is that its actually a type of hate crime. The targets tend to be weaker, smaller, a new comer or someone with a disability.

@r-gamer: the problem I think isn't the shooting deaths itself but that a lot of the people were innocent. These were mass murders, and comparing that to suicides or other diseases is stupid. These right wing terrorist attacks are all the same though. No difference between bin laden and the other Christian right wing white terrorists. Maybe the scale is different but the ideology and the beliefs are very much the same.

The school shootings though are always the worst ones of them all, especially Sandy Hook which is very hard to forget.
