The conversation was hijacked by those that benefit from division. Anyways, race often isn't the primary problem, it's generally the government.

Say you are a skinny white boy from Europe. Download a few movies and feds will be knocking at your door with jail time and fines. Be a "refugee" in Europe, talk openly about hurting and murdering people, actually go out and hurt and murder people, get caught, get released by feds, go hurt more people, rinse, repeat.

Most people will be like "this is why we need to kill Muslims" but smart people will be like "my government thinks it's okay to let these kind of people act with impunity and hurt its citizens...time for new government".

In the US, feds always stir up racism when discontent about the economy and politics becomes widespread.

I was born in the '70s, and I don't remember a time when "we need to have a conversation about..." did not mean "you shut up and agree with everything I say, or you will become the bad guy everybody piles on."

'We need to have a conversation about race' = we need to blame whitey more.

Someone is trying to stir up a race war. It's simple propaganda mixed with a divide and conquer strategy. Edward Bernays pioneered this kind of shit

Normally around the time you bring up uncomfortable facts.

Whenever someone tells you that you need to do something they always mean to shut up and listen. It's been like that for as long as I remember.

When people in the discussion started to question the Sharptonian narrative.
