7 Things You Should Know About Black Lives Matter
Black Lives Matter is a terrorist organization and should be aggressively treated as such. The leaders should be arrested and physical force should be used to break up their protests (aka, riots).

ergot: Yes, reason and logic always wins out over stupid emotionality when it's not shut down by emotionally unstable whiners. The professor was amazingly gracious in taking the time to talk to the preschooler to help her sort out her confused thinking regarding race. By the end of the exchange she seemed disoriented. Kind of like someone who had just had the rug pulled out from under them. What just happened? LOL

British TV host makes gay joke, social media erupts
People make too much of little comments like this. What the guy initially said was mildly funny and some of the replies were also mildly funny. I don't see any cause for outrage. People need to just take a chill pill and laugh at themselves sometimes. If there's nothing wrong with ice cream and there's nothing wrong with being gay, then there's nothing wrong with making a joke about the two and there's nothing wrong with joking about the absurdity of the guy's joke either.

PewDiePie is in a bit of trouble on YouTube. There are lots of videos about the issue, but none of them was really to the point enough. Some went on for way too long. But it looks like he's going to be not making as much money as he was since YouTube Red and Disney dropped him over some things he said that were taken out of context. He does comedy and some of it is a little edgy, but some over-sensitive people are saying that he was anti-Semitic. I wish people would just learn to laugh instead of whining all the time.

Free tuition as reparations for black students?
I find the idea of reparations offensive. Many people died in the Civil War to free slaves. Equal rights and protections have been in place since the 1960s. Anyone who hasn't taken responsibility for themselves by now doesn't deserve any extra help.

Bill Maher Calls Himself a "House Nigger"
If he had said this about a person of color, I could see the outrage, but he said this about himself. Self-deprecating humor is extremely different from insulting or even making fun of someone else.

Growing outrage over Bill Maher's racial slur on live television
I think it's healthy to push the limits and in this case I admire Maher's use of a forbidden word. There should be no forbidden words.
