So as long as it does not sound condescending it's OK. Right ?

Too bad I accidentally stepped on your pet peeve.

Maybe you know, maybe you don't, we still don't know; you didn't answer my condescending question. Regardless, "reverse racism" is a made up, meaningless term. When I hear it used in earnest, it always sounds whiny and petulant.

I disagree, and so do many others, including Wiki.

Nah, it doesn't exist. It's *still* racism. What do you call the people who engage in "reverse racism", "reverse racists"? It's nonsense.

What's "reverse" about it? When a wife punches her husband and gives him a black eye, is that "reverse domestic violence"? When a woman earns more than a man for doing the same job, is that is that "reverse unequal pay discrimination"? When a woman puts a roofie in the drink of a man and penetrates him without his consent, is that "reverse rape"?

How does attaching "reverse" to any of these scenarios make them any different than the "forward" of any of them?

I think reverse just got tacked on because most of us ...ahem, "mature" folks automatically think white on something else when we hear the word racisim, and would get confused. Then when the speaker was half way through, we'd be all, Wait, wait, what, you're saying black on white??

Beautiful to not see this thread bumped in over three months. Oh well.

This happened eight blocks south of the shop; three guys force another guy into a chinese food place and beat the crap out of him and stab him.



I never saw that level of violence actually enter into the shop. But, this happened at 11:45 am. This is before-lunch activity on North Broad.

Yeah, but maybe he deserved it, maybe they let him off easy out of the goodness of their hearts.

Well this happened catty-corner from the shop. Says Steve:

I could hear the shots all too well from my desk... It seems a young man from the area was loitering at a local business to, and I cant think of a delicate way to put this, 'keep track' of his girlfriend who was working there. After the owner booted him out, he walked literally across the street and tried to rob a mobile phone store. He didn't notice the off-duty officer in the store however.
Tried to shoot officer. Officer shot him. He dead.

If you were there you would have heard the shots too. That's all, no problem. You can what if it to death, but the fact remains shit happens everywhere. What are the chances of terrorists bombing the pawn shop? You'd probably be safer there than at the theater playing Rent.

If shots are fired, I'd much rather they be from the cop's gun.

I'm not sure I get your point, the terrorist threat is minimal, crime related gun violence somewhat higher than that.
