Good piece Sunday night from John Oliver. While he doesn't come out and say it directly because it would switch focus from the bigger picture, the issue he highlights most certainly is part of the framework for latent systemic racism and active classism in this country.

The man has an attention span in a world where most don't.

Instead of creating racist boogeyman out of your imagination, some of the crackpots on these boards need to focus on the places it really exists. Instead of protesting some perceived racial slight because the media sensationalism engine tells you too, you should be spending your time and energy going after things that will make an actual difference and impact.

Edit: Not directed to you specifically johhnyboy

Most of us are capable of highlighting both. It's a shame you aren't.

You got that wrong Cole, I think all racism is wrong.

I am not that one that stated we should only focus on racism that matters. That was another poster.

Edit: Oh I see, you didn't get that sarcasm. I linked this thread in a couple of times from another topic. No worries, it wasn't meant for you anyhow.
