      And also black people jaywalk more slowly? Really?

      My jaw hit the floor at how racist that was.

        It's not even close to what I said...and even THrow hte Bums Out acknowledged that.

        As for your other observation - about the jaywaking reference I made -- I have to respond.

        I was clear about the jaywalking bit, that I was referencing an observation that I've heard numerous comedians make. Not that it matters, but I've heard this from both white and black comedians, but mostly black comedians. It's a comedic observation and obviously a stereotype, as I made very clear in the comment, but it might reflect cultural difference predicated on different experiences.

        I wasn't saying it's true or not, and I said it certainly wouldn't be universally true even if there were some truth to it -- But, as I wrote, I was offering it up as an example of something where what seems like a common sense way to act (or lack thereof) to one group of people might not be how another group acts and may not seem like common sense to them....all down to different experiences.

        •  Just STFU (0+ / 0-)

          Your concern is duly noted. Keep whiteknighting for the police.
          L.E has a history of violence against POC and for you to whitesplain it ( black ppl jaywalk differently?! what the hell is wrong with you?) shows your ignorance and privilege.

          Of course I shouldn't be surprised: it's the Daily Kos. Some of you get your knickers in a twist when cops are demonized, or when your racist, sexist, classism is pointed out to you

            I wasn't endorsing it as a fact -- I was fishing for a trivial example of how different groups might act quite normally in ways that seem nonsensical to others -- and remembered this notion that I've heard more than a couple of well-known comedians make, and one that I thought might draw a knowing chuckle.  

            I wasn't whitesplaining anything, and I'm sorry if it came off that way. Nor was I defending violence against POC, and it makes no sense to suggest that because we were discussing an incident where a dog was shot.
