12. You should just say “the conversation only matters when we’re saying what we want and you are quiet”
13. When you became personal, insulting, rude, you perceived, as was correct, that I as your opponent had the upper hand, and that you were going to come off bettering me. Didn’t work.
14. I don’t even know where to begin pointing out what’s wrong with your statement. All I can say is that you should really deconstruct and examine it
15. Your comment is without genius, wit, or knowledge of the world. Baiters such as yourself expose their worldview as so exceedingly naive and ill-informed that even the incredibly offensive undertones it contains is nearly eclipsed by the astounding lack of intelligent observation.
16. Because you know, all caps and circular logic are completely legit when making an “argument.”
17. I will admit I don’t understand your specific kind of psychosis but I do admire your total commitment to it.

19. The worst tragedy of sin isn’t that it produced your bad behavior, but that it produced the idea that your bad behavior is strong enough to deflect pure logic.
20. Aha, trying to use diversionary tactics to distort reality and deflect responsibility. Abusive narcissists use these to an excessive extent in an effort to escape accountability for their actions.
21. By drawing an elusive line essential to presenting a reasonable hypothesis worthy of consideration you’ve instead chosen to illustrate a public display of willful ignorance, therefore I strongly advise you to actually study why your form of reasoning is illogical, inherently fallacious and subjectively perspective; perhaps you’re fueled by a deep-seated desire to sound more educated than you actually are.
22. prayers and grief do not preclude action
23. Spoken like a true racist (a person who believes that a particular race is superior to another)
24. It’s true for those who don’t see color as an issue. But when they walk out their front door and step into the real world, BECAUSE color isn’t an issue for them, they are blind to what’s happening around them…. They always make excuses “they had a weapon”, “they were acting in a threatening manner”, “they were running which made them look guilty” etc. and assume the dead must have some modicum of criminality, present some reasonable threat to the public, right, all because THEY don’t see color. Hello, You SHOULD see color, not be color blind. So get off your high color-blind horse and stand up and draw attention to the injustice! Your words are nothing but a cop-out to absolve you from having to get involved.

29. Your comment is narrow with no depth or desire for understanding the fullness of the racial divide in this country. Part of the root of America’s lie…begins in history via every Indigenous/American Indian ever born. I know what the Indian nation as a whole thinks of the American created lie they were the bad guys.
30. Your argument about personal non-racism is missing the point.
31. The average White person has no idea how incredibly strong people of color have always had to be, to survive in America.
32. How dare you dismiss strong leaders for their truthful comments because they don’t fit in line with your agenda?
33. Whoosh… That’s the sound of the point going over your head. Your response highlights you grew up unaware of your privilege, and now that it’s being highlighted, you become defensive because all your life you been told, it was only through your work and dedication you got to where you are; and while no one is saying you didn’t work hard to achieve your success, just always keep in mind you had a little extra boost in the beginning.
34. As long as you can deprive an ethnic group economic power you have an easy target to blame your failed policies on __________.
35. Rest assured I am well aware of the limitations of your perceptions; you need not continue proving my point. “Your comments were beyond insensitive.” You’re dismissed but in parting I do wish you good luck with your trolling.
36. clap clap…..another hypocrite shouting about hateful people by insulting them
37. Even though nearly *all* serial killers are White men, White people are seen as good as a whole, and only act badly as individuals. And think about it, the US likes White serial killers so much, they make mini-series about them.
38. You’re racism may amuse you and your friends, but just know that you are in the minority. Most people are more sophisticated and informed. It’s 2016 get with the program.

Your derogatory comments regarding Blacks exposes racism, which may amuse both you and your friends, but just know you’re in the minority. Its 2016 and most people are more sophisticated and informed; but feel free not to let facts get in the way of you parading around in an attempt to divert the subject and make yourself appear virtuous.
43. You never know when you’re going to be attacked by the truth. Best to be armed, just in case.

45. Your world-wide sophisticated experience is pretty much confined to having had breakfast once at the International House of Pancakes.
46. Your argument is as thin as soup made by boiling the shadow of a starved to death pigeon.
47. Don’t get insulted, but is your job devoted to spreading ignorance?
48. I’m going to consider the source of your insult: if you respect the person and value his opinions, try to learn from the episode. If you don’t, you should be relieved that person disapproves of you; you are likely doing something right… I’m obviously doing something right!
49. I’m going to consider the source of your insult: I understand sometimes people are simply behaving like overgrown children, or perhaps they have deep flaws in their character. So rather than getting angry or returning the insult you’re obviously deserving of my pity, not my anger.
50. Obviously you don’t know me very well or you would have brought up much more damning flaws in my character!
51. I understand it’s been hard for you to develop viable ethics without two other components: understanding how the world works, and appreciating the power and limits of human reasoning.
52. I understand you’re struggling with distinguishing between the existence of corporeal and abstract, or the mental principles capable of separating true from false
53. You might find comfort in practicing Hierocles’ Circle which is a visualization exercise, during which you begin by thinking about your own self, then mentally expand your circle of concern to your family, your friends, people living in your neighborhood and city, then gradually to all of humankind, and finally to nature itself. It’s a way to remind you the rest of the world is just as important as you perceive yourself to be considering you’re just a speck of dust afloat in the universe after all, and not all that important.
54. A crucial component of mindfulness is paying attention to the fact your choices, even the apparently trivial ones; very likely have an inextricable ethical component to them. Please be aware, and chose according to virtue rather than continuing your slovenly vitriol.
55. I begin each morning by saying to myself; I shall meet with the busybody, the ungrateful, arrogant, deceitful, envious, hateful, nearsighted and unsocial people and understand all these things happen to them by reason of their willful blindness of what is good and evil. I make a conscious decision to be neither injured by their deliberate ignorance as I know no one can fix on me what is ugly in themselves, nor can I be angry or hate them for their mental/ cerebral/psychological/uncultured and/or incapacity/impairments/corrosion/ degeneration/inferiority/ inadequacy/inability.
56. A more benign interpretation can be offered; from a virtuous ethical perspective as either positive models or cautionary tales from which to learn lessons. A complementary way is to indirectly learn from the lives of others, incorporating into our existence the lessons the universe taught them.
57. What is significant is, despite my feelings of disgust for you I won’t turn my back. I will continue to instruct the less informed and develop tolerance and understanding toward those we consider insufferable.

61. People like you clinging to their privileged vantage points as though it’s the clearest view of reality forget _________
62. It’s a wonderful feeling when an anonymous commenter invests so my much of them self, embracing their vulnerabilities of sadness, bitter despair and fear. The true mark of maturity is when somebody attempts to hurt you and you try to understand their situation instead of trying to hurt them back so I want you to know I appreciate how much guts it took for you to confess to a complete stranger your powerless in life’s challenges and your need to blatantly express your acutely inaccurate superiority complex because the world just doesn’t spin the way you want it to.
63. Just wanted to tip my hat about that comment you made. Not many people are willing to so clearly show their small minds. It took real courage, congratulations!

66. A wise man fills his brains before emptying his mouth ~ Kenyan Proverb
67. When a mainstreamer is confronted with the truth he will instinctively recall his mainstream soundbites and regurgitate them on demand, just as he has been trained to do by the media. This tantrum like reaction is the result of an under-developed ego struggling to mature and cope in the real world, a world clearly far-removed from the mainstream Disneyland fairytale you were promised as a child.
68. Judging by the old saying, “What you don’t know can’t hurt you,” you’re hitting 100 percent.
69. Quick to judge, quick to anger, slow to understand. Ignorance, prejudice, and fear walk hand in hand.
70. Your stupidity/ prattle/drivel/drool is now spread all over the net, all over the world. It’s actually quite sad when someone so prejudiced and ignorant as yourself are allowed to raise children, because you will raise them to be as prejudiced and ignorant as you are.
71. You need to understand the dynamics of this issue, in its totality.
72. I’m truly sorry your limited mental capacity in unable to recognize uncomplicated words such as death, danger, poison, cancer, pain, nausea, vomiting, or diarrhea. Maybe you can see your way to obtaining a child’s primary dictionary which will assist in basic concepts easier for you to master.
73. Here’s the thing: You have only to look around and allow yourself to truly see what’s going on in order to understand that millions of lives are at risk, including your own and your children’s.
74. You have only to accept the undeniable truth that systems are not only in failure, but dangerously, disastrously in failure- politically, economically and socially. Now is no time to be polite. Now is no time to compromise, or to fail to speak or act out of fear of giving offense. People who are offended by plain truths not only deserve to, but need to be offended.
75. How cozy is the rock you live under?
76. I don’t have a problem with ignorance, only if you don’t utilize the resources readily available to you, such as the internet. Look up things in order to inform yourself, and if you still stand by whatever your “belief” is, then, at least sound intelligent when arguing for it.
77. For all you millennials who don’t see color…You need stop lying to yourselves because it flies in the face of history.
78. Your past history shows arguing with you is just a fool’s errand
79. An informed opinion demands familiarity with both sides of an issue.
80. I’d explain to you why what you just typed makes no sense but I’m afraid that logic would be lost on someone who _________________
81. You’re ignoring the whole historical evidence-based argument
82. Your lack of taste, monotonous ranting, the way you wallow in the belief that all members of every race of color is inferior to yours as you continue your walk down the royal road of unconsciousness; perhaps someday you’ll lose the blinders and realize your personal diatribes will not be necessary or tolerated
83. Your comment is without genius, wit, or knowledge of the world
84. So you think it’s a massive conspiracy, it’s inconvenient and uncomfortable for you to
85. That’s the party line for the racists who call everyone else racists.
86. Please explain and please be specific. No conjecture.
87. Emergency Reprogramming needed in aisle 5!!! The chicken has crossed the road….repeat….the chicken HAS crossed the road….. all hands on deck!!!
88. Your pathetic contribution of ill-informed nonsensical pabulum is boorish. But keep talking. I always yawn when I’m interested.
89. You are such an easily manipulated little trick. When you became personal, insulting, rude, you perceived, as was correct, that I as your opponent had the upper hand, and that you were going to come off bettering me. Didn’t work. When you passed from the subject of dispute, to me the disputant by attacking me personally it’s called the argumentum ad personam, to distinguish it from the argumentum ad hominem, which passes from the objective discussion of the subject pure and simple to the statements or admissions which your opponent has made in regard to it. But in becoming personal you leave the subject altogether, and turn your attack to me as a person by remarks of an offensive and spiteful nature. In other words you’re appealing from the virtues of the intellect to the virtues of the body. Your intellect has decreased with each of your posts as exhibited by your response
90. Additionally by stooping to name calling you’re trying to diminish your embarrassment of me having to chastise you once again, thereby calling me names, which of course are just subjective at best. You prove again and again you’re intellectually dishonest which speaks more about yourself than about me.
91. Your comment marks a decidedly primitive stage of reflection.
92. That’s because you see what fits your narrative, what makes you feel comfortable.
93. It appears you’ve never been known to use any words which might send a reader to the dictionary.
94. I see you interpret “free speech” as name-calling and verbal abuse
95. You interpret expressing your “free speech” opinions publicly by name-calling and verbal abuse
96. I could laugh at your ignorance but I’ll never laugh at your hatred.
97. When someone says eat shit or Kiss my ass “Thank you my friend. Every time I smell it, I shall be reminded of you.”
98. Your comment is without genius, wit, or knowledge of the world. Race baiters such as yourself expose their worldview as so exceedingly naive and ill-informed that even the incredibly offensive racist undertones it contained is nearly eclipsed by the astounding lack of intelligent observation.
99. Bigots have no shortage of language to express their small-mindedness. In a country still struggling with race even decades after constitutionally protected equality was established your racist, Trump supporting passive aggressive comment is not funny but it is revealing and unfortunately all too familiar. Racism is the most insidious and widespread assault on Black life and the most damaging of all the mental illness known to mankind.
100. Trying to reason with someone like ___________ is like having a fact based rational conversation with a cloud. It’s just going to blow on through and not listen to a thing you said.
101. I don’t hate ignorance, because it can be fixed. However I do hate willful ignorance, and the celebration of it.
102. 2,476,635 people were killed by God in the bible alone.
103. Any detail from the past, no matter how insignificant is fair game if it can sufficiently be used for smearing the character of Black victims and making them responsible for their own mistreatment and/or death.
104. You’re clinging onto information you’ve been fed rather than looking at the new information in front of you. The reason you dismiss it is it hasn’t been given to you by an authoritative figure. This is what’s indoctrinated into you; the only truth is truth which comes from “authority”. In this day and age the truly “intelligent” are not those whose education is to listen to information only to regurgitate it back but to actually process the information and learn from it.
105. Hey, you’re having a Columbus moment. You know when you claim White men discovered something everyone else knew about long before?
106. Multiply your experience by a thousand spread over a lifetime then get back to us
107. Your answer is logically and politically equivalent to every 5-year-old’s favorite comeback: “I know you are but what am I?”
108. Please feel free to go back to your SAFE PLACE, where all those without backbones go when they can’t debate an issue; hide in a corner with your head tucked low behind your computer screen, waiting for someone to come along you think you can intimidate with your pomposity. Sorry, your ad hominem remarks don’t affect me in the least; they’ve given me a platform to use as an educational tool for those who are willing to learn.
109. Sorry, your ad hominem remarks don’t affect me in the least; they’ve given me a platform to use as an educational tool for those who are willing to learn.
110. Throwing around phrases you evidentially know very little about suggests you need to invest a bit more time in research
111. You gotta keep your fragile ego protected
112. You should definitely have more confidence in yourself. If you saw yourself the way others do you’d shrink to the size of an gnat
113. There will always be haters; there will always be doubters; there will always be non-believers, and then there is you proving ignorance is bliss
114. There will always be people who see the net and are repulsed because there’s stuff there they don’t want to see therefore they set out to make sure no one else can, invariably failing because there are no net-cops to enforce any such rules
115. No matter how big a hammer you use, you can’t pound common sense into stupid people.
116. Talking to you is like trying to teach a mermaid to do the splits.
117. I think that Darwin fella had the right theory; your parents must have had a big banana bill
118. When applying your standards to someone else’s post you’ve already made the mistake of assuming someone actually cares that you, a typical name caller obviously suffering from an over exaggerated grandiose notion of self-importance considers * not constructive*. Your conjecture is merely what *you* consider appropriate. I chose my words as I saw fit; disagreeing with me is of no consequence on my end but it certainly appears to have struck a very deep nerve on yours. Deal with it, give up and go home as any vindictive ad hominem comments from you will be judiciously ignored.
119. Generalizing about entire groups of people of color based upon one’s personal, and obviously limited experiences with persons from those groups, is illegitimate on several levels.
120. Not one of your pertinent ancestors was squashed, devoured, drowned, starved, stranded, stuck fast, untimely wounded, or otherwise deflected from its life’s quest of delivering a tiny charge of genetic material to the right partner at the right moment in order to perpetuate the only possible sequence of hereditary combinations that could result eventually, astoundingly, and all too briefly, in you.
121. Studying history is a valuable asset when arguing a point and judging from your comments I see you haven’t considered doing so.
122. You rationalize your racism on the basis of your personal experiences with members of group you dislike, you’re being highly selective when it comes to the experiences you think I should draw my conclusions, this is the very definition of statistical illiteracy. After all, if your negative experiences with Blacks “prove” Blacks are bad people, then by definition, anyone who had had good experiences with Black people would be able to say all Blacks are good people, right? This points to the biggest flaw in your thinking, recall just how many bad experiences with other White people you had and didn’t lead you to generalize about all White folks as a bad group of people.
123. To hold socially-defined and categorized groups of people up to scorn or derision, or to fear them en masse, on the basis of limited personal experience or horribly misinterpreted and misunderstood data, is to put not only those “others” at risk for mistreatment, but yourself and family at risk as well: at risk of failing to see the dangers posed by non-stereotypical threats, while you stay on guard against the dangerous “other.” It means worrying about Islamic hijackers, but not so-called Christian warriors seeking to impose their version of faith upon unbelievers by blowing up clinics or government buildings. It means worrying about carjackers, but not the drunk drivers (eighty-five percent are White), who kill and maim far more White people each year than all the Black and Brown street hoods combined. It means worrying about being killed by a gang member, but ignoring the risk of death or injury from corporations cutting corners on workplace safety or product quality, hospitals and doctors engaging in unnecessary medical procedures, genetically engineered foods, air and water pollution, few of which has been contributed to by folks of color.
124. You’re throwing out the Irish “the first slaves” slogan you read on social media as a way to derail conversations about slavery and modern-day racism.
125. That’s like me telling you “If you don’t like the mafia why don’t you join it and change it from the inside”
126. Spoken like a true bigot (a person who is intolerant toward those holding different opinions)
127. (Insult TO someone ~ Peanut Gallery) I see you’re quite familiar with the balcony, you know, where the cheaper seats are located. … In the 1920’s, the peanut gallery was the theater balcony where black folks were forced to sit due to segregation. In some places, it was even called the n-word gallery. Cheap balcony seats were often reserved for, or largely made up of, African American patrons. Thus, since the phrase implies that the opinions expressed by those from the gallery were unsolicited, unwarranted and unhelpful, the phrase also connotes something negative about those giving them, purported to be African Americans.
128. (Insult FROM someone ~ Peanut Gallery) Thank you for recognizing in today’s society, because of their superior view the balcony and mezzanine seats, or *Peanut Galley* if you will, are more expensive than main floor seats at the rear of the auditorium. In addition to having the clearest view of the stage, patrons in the upper levels also have the clearest shot, and a bad performer such as yourself will find himself showered from the upper deck with the most common theater snack of all time, ergo, consider yourself pelted with peanuts, groundnuts and goobers.
