    Default Here we go again

    https://www.airforcetimes.com/news/y...own-dorm-room/

    "One of the five black Air Force Academy preparatory school cadet candidates who had racial slurs written on their dormitory message boards has admitted to writing the slurs, the academy said in a Tuesday statement."

    If racism is so omnipresent in modern society why do people feel the need to do this? Can any of the liberals on the board answer the incredible rise of fake racism events in the last couple of years?

    I think liberals are more concerned with the incredible rise of actual racism, rather than something one guy did which you appear to be trying to pass off as some kind of trend.

    All we need is one to fail, one to break, one to take it all away.
    What if we crumble, what if we fall? Where's the flame that torch the soul?

    Well I don't get all my news from the highly reliable sources you like to use, such as r/The_Donald or Breitbart so I'm not au fait with the latest paranoid fantasies of Batshit America.

    I love how this is a symptom of something bigger, but when we have examples of your side doing it (like that guy with the. . . political signs?. . . last year) you say it's just one lone person being a moron.
    Last night as I lay in bed, looking up at the stars, I thought, “Where the hell is my ceiling?"

    Both sides do it. We also had that idiot girl carve her face up in 2012 Obama campaign in a mirror. I've never claimed that conservatives/republicans are incapable of doing stupid things like this.

    However I've seen far more stories (primarily around schools/universities, a hotbed of liberalism) where false racism/sexism etc has been claimed. The sad thing is that its hard to prove someone DID fake something so we only have the most idiotic of idiots being caught while probably 10x as many false claims never get outed.

    Do you think it might be that you've seen far more stories about it happening by liberals because of how and where you choose to visit and get your news?

    More likely that the majority of real cases are not reported or registered, especially in the military.

    Possibly, but this was on the front page of reddit news and that has a liberal bias more than a conservative one. I also regularly visit Democratic Underground for the lulz, and they are quick to post ANYTHING that makes Republicans/Conservatives look bad.

    The follow up has more votes than the original, so not sure what this has to do with liberalism. In fact one of the top comments on the original submission was that this was likely faked. Top comments (sort by best) on both submissions are very telling for how evil liberals are.
