Facebook’s only Dutch factchecker has quit over the social network’s refusal to allow them to highlight political lies as being false. “What is the point of fighting fake news if you are not allowed to tackle politicians?” Hoekman asked.

I see what you're getting at.

Isn't it funny, that if you look at the comments I made leading up to your "Mask-off" comment (which I suppose is meant to imply that I'm a closet racist, right?)...that there is nothing that would lead a reasonable person to conclude that I'm racist.

Black crime, and black-on-black crime exists. In large numbers, actually.

In fact, it's one of the biggest issues plaguing black communities.

And it's not because black people are more prone to violence, or dumb, or whatever racist thing.

It's because of the years of slavery and oppression, and now underprivileged people happen to be black.

But it's important to point out how the largest perpetrator of violence against black people is...other black people.

And that's a big problem because the narrative is that some external societal force or law or conspiracy is trying to keep black people down.

It's capitalism combined with communities that by and large lack father figures.

Only by going to the source of the issue can we address it.

So sure, call me racist.

But you're not accurate with that assertion.
