    The subject of racism?  A racist attack?  A garbled misunderstanding?

    I'm comparing the general concept to this situation.  Where we don't know much of anything yet.

      What general concept? You haven't compared anything at all. You've just made some grossly ignorant comments about how we shouldn't assume anything about two white dudes running off to the administration when they feel threatened by a teacher actually teaching them things. This has everything to do with racism and pretending otherwise is willfully ignoring the facts of the situation.

      If knowledge is power and power corrupts, does that mean that knowledge corrupts?

          reply to what racism has to do with this. Or what "general concept" you were "comparing" to anything. Because it read a lot like you were making broad statements that didn't mean anything in an attempt to minimize the amount of racism that is in this situation.

          •  Ok, one more try. (0+ / 0-)

            The concept is "racism."  

            That concept does appear to apply here, somehow, but it's unclear how because we have very little detail to judge what happened here in terms of who was at fault for what.

              "It's plausibly deniable therefore there the white man was being oppressed and we should discipline the person talking about racism!!!!"

              Of course, not believing the group of people who are actually oppressed is the norm.

              We have plenty of information on the incident, you and others are choosing not to believe it. I'm sure the fact that it comes from a black woman has nothing to do with people not believing it.
