I'm not sure you realize that the definitions of words are not fixed; this is not how language works. But anyway.
Excessive force used against law breakers (and occasionally innocent people) is not genocide. A few police departments encouraging the arrest of more black people is not genocide. And shooting water at protesters is sure as hell not genocide. And it's laughable that "We Charge Genocide" is alleging genocide based on the section from the Genocide Convention which includes in the definition for genocide "causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group." By that logic, police have committed genocide against every ethnic group in the US, because every ethnic group has been on the receiving end of excessive police force, or "serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group", to some degree. Blacks have just been on the receiving end to a greater degree, which makes sense because as a group they are responsible for a highly disproportionate amount of the violent crime in this country. Since black Americans murder and harm each other at a far higher rate than the police do, are they committing genocide against their own group? That's where stretching definitions and logic beyond all reason will get you.
Wow, somebody drank the Kool-Aid.
Or maybe you can't tell me what bubble I'm in because you were just using a cheap comeback with zero consideration of its veracity.
No. I genuinely don't care.
Sample size: some relatives
Doesn't invalidate what I said
Back to what I said about definitions - by that logic, Jews are not a race either, yet I challenge you to find me a source that says that the Nazis targeting Jews does not constitute racism.
The statement was only aimed at a subset (illegal immigrants to the US) of Mexicans (which is not a racial category anyway).
Illegal immigrants to the US are not a subset of Mexicans.
[...] about half of all Chump supporters link undocumented immigrants to more crime than US citizens...I think you get the idea.
Undocumented immigrants≠a racial category
I'd like to see some evidence that the majority of Americans think of white people when they hear "undocumented immigrants."
Okay, I'm glad we got it cleared up that you have no evidence for your claim.
No, we did no such thing.
You throw all whites in a bucket and say that we as a group have to answer for the crimes of not only other white people alive today, but also our ancestors.
No. I observe both the history of white people and how white people today benefit from it, in different ways depending on where they come from. I observe their (often hypocritical) attitudes about things like violence, discrimination, and human rights violations. I notice, for example, how eager you are to condemn terrorism when it's committed by Muslims, but if the KKK is celebrating the new president-elect, nope, not worth a mention!
