33. I'm not sure that's relevant.

I'm weighing the fact that black people are being murdered in cold blood for walking while black - and then being blamed because they should have known better than to scare white people by deliberately dressing "too black" in public. And the murderers are released, which is entirely because they are white and the victims are black ...

vs. weighing that some white people's feelings are gonna get hurt if we point out the reasons for that.

And I find the hurt feelings of white people to be inconsequential in this. We're talking about life and death here, so dust off your hurt feelings and allow people to openly discuss the real issues. Sometimes people will talk about it without including the disclaimer "this doesn't apply to all white people" in every sentence. Get over it, allow people to talk about racism, oppression, and the right to basic survival for people who are underprivileged due to bigotry, without having to take into consideration in every post whether this will inadvertently hurt the feelings of people with privilege.
