Are you saying it is wrong to use biases to paint an unfavorable picture of someone?
No, that's not what I'm saying.
We are inside of a thread which is one amongst several that Oldgamer is using to shit talk about an officer, to paint an unfavorable picture of the guy based more on his own prior biases than an open quest for information.
Yes because that's the exact same thing the police were doing, releasing selected facts to paint brown in a certain light.
The post you responded to, was making the case not to do such things.
Yes and that's exactly what I take issue with. It's the "do as I say not as I do" routine and it's complete bullshit. Being the better person and taking the high road doesn't get you shit in an unjust world, asking people to tie their hands because two wrongs don't make it right is total garbage in this instance. Being the better person gets you nothing except forgotten.
Your response basically said that black people should not just shut up and take it, that they should fight in these ways. Of which the next sentence you say they should not play white mans game, which you now define to be what you were advocating blacks to do previously.
You made a very confusing statement. And I was curious what you define as "white mans game" and what you would define as "black mans game". Those in the community who decided not to "shut up and take it", took to rioting, looting, vandalizing, burning, and I was curious if that was your approved "black response" to the situation?
