On Fridays PBS NewsHour, New York Times columnist David Brooks argued that in the discussions after the shooting of police officers in Dallas, and the shootings of Alton Sterling and Philando Castile, it doesnt help that we have an American political debate with basically one all-white party.
Brooks began by saying, The question, to me, is, are we going to speak out in a way that is actual dialogue and conversation, or are we going to drift into tribal thinking? Theres been a lot of rancid overgeneralizations in our society, that all African men behind the wheel are dangerous, that all Muslims are somehow involved in terrorism, that all cops are somehow at war with communities. And if we can speak in a way thats not tribalistic, thats not making these generalizations, then we may make something out of the current moment. But Im not always hopeful after a bad week like this one.
He later added, [W]hen people are in a period of bad mood, then they want to hunker down and protect. And thats the exact opposite from what we need now. And lets be frank, it doesnt help that we have an American political debate with basically one all-white party. And that just means we fall along very polarized lines, when we fall into the normal default position of politics, that we fall along racially polarized lines. And we have to acknowledge thats an inherently dangerous situation, given everything else thats happening.

It doesnt help that there is basically one political party running all universities and MSM broadcast tv news, and newspapers.
Oh for gosh sakes, MOVE out of the country, maybe Africa will be better for all the whiners out there!!
it doesnt help”....”It’s not helpful”....”inappropriate”..... I don’t know anyone who speaks this way.
If he hates whites so much why doesn’t he just cut his own throat and leave the rest of us alone?? I’m sick of these bad people who hate me. Don’t for a second believe they hate themselves.
And all Republicans are white. Talk about overgeneralization, this guy takes the cake.
On the DemonRATS side there is a crook and a commie...so he's talking about???
It’s intended to discourage any minorities thinking of running away from the plantation by making them think they would be the only ones.
We don’t have a CWC (Congressional White Caucus) but we need one badly to counteract the nasty, low-IQ CBC.

A last defense against genocide in the Congo.
This is about the Muslim vs Christian wars in the Congo. Every African-American should kiss the American soil they walk on every day. Their slave ancestors paid their dues for them DECADES IN ADVANCE!!!!
This $h!tface pussy-a$$ turd deliberately and intentionally hides the fact that there was an Alan Keyes, Ben Carson, Condi Rice, Clarence Thomas, etc.
As opposed to what? A party of “minority” voters run by a bunch of elitist, white Bolsheviks?
it doesnt help that we have an American political debate with basically one all-maroon party.
Old media mouthpieces like David Brooks are more responsible for putting the Marxist maggot in power and for fueling his racial divisiveness than any political party and now this race-pimp is screaming for more power to the black klans.
Broooks and his ilk. Most of what they write and speak is virtue signaling like a male peacock display of elaborate feathers
And lets be frank, it doesnt help that we have an American political debate with basically one all-red (as in socialist) party.
They do know minorities get killed or attacked almost completely by other minorities and not whites.
Maybe give whites some credit for not being as against minorities as minorities are.
