    I wonder who and what defines who and what is an American since the majority are not indigenous? If being indigenous is not a defining factor than what is? Surely it cannot be race? All whom consider themselves white have genealogies from different races. Makes no sense at all to me. I feel sorry for Americans who have to deal with that type of dilemma.

    Thankfully I grew up in a generation where racism damn near dead, sure there's a few stupid fucks,but I feel that 97.5 percent of people my age and younger doesn't care about your color and background, it's just NOT something that's cool and isn't accepted AT ALL! say what you want about US millenials lol but racism is damn near dead these days and millenials should be proud for there acceptance of everyone. Just think how much better it will be when we're all older and we can teach our children how wrong racism is, very soon racism will be dead. Again millenials should be proud of themselves.

    Sadly... the Republican Party is still a party where the souls and freedoms and rights of women are subservient to powerful men.

    As the child of a woman,my is it possible in this day and age that old white men are allowed to dictate the law. I as a man am surprised that there are so many women in America who feel that these same white men are running their lives and taking away their rights are o.k. with it.

    Not beeing from the US nor in the US I recently learned about the Jesse Williams' speech at the BET Awards 2016 as well as Tomi Lahren's reaction to it via the Daily Show. Now, with the Kavanaugh-thingy going on the following phrase crossed my mind when watching this:
    "Man! You Americans treat your women even worse than your black people!"

    “What was your visceral feeling?” Liberals value feelings over facts. WE DON’T HAVE ANY HARD EVIDENCE TO EITHER PROVE OR DISPROVE FORD OR KAVANAUGH.

  • CrowdPleeza

    Can anyone clear up these questions about Ford's accusations?

    1. Is it true or not that every witness she has named denied what
    2. She said she mentioned the incident to a therapist. But she hasn't
    turned in her therapy notes on the incident. Is this true or not?
    3. Didn't she also say that Kavanaugh's name isn't in those therapy
    4. She said the incident happened in the mid 80's but then said it
    happened in 1982. Is this true or not?

    2:59 I don't agree with whole lives being labelled an experiment, because real people live those lives. I'm from South Africa, and Apartheid was once refered to the same way, experiment, but the truth is, it's real people living, real lives lived, real experiences, I hope not to sound uneducated, but experiment is the wrong word to use in all of this.

    All South Americans, all Central Americans ARE AMERICANS. Just as ALL of Africa are Africans, all of Europe are Europeans.
    Here we are North Americans but, make no mistake that all Peruvians, Colombians, Costa Ricans, Brazilians Argentinians etc...etc...etc and yes even Mexicans ARE all Americans.

    • mina rosa-diaz
      mina rosa-diaz 7 months ago

      Bilbo Faggins they can disagree all they like, it’s a fact. It matters not that it’s north, central or south the fact is, is that these continents are the Americas therefore, their inhabitants are Americans.
      Now Mexicans are from a country in Central America but, just as Californians, Oregonians etc..who live in said states in North America are Americans; so are Mexicans.

      Bath House Becky well he was being accused of gang rape at the pinnacle of his life and career on live tv in front of his wife his daughters and the world in a situation that no matter how it ends millions of people judged him guilty anyways so his name will forever be stained but your purple haired gender studied 22 years of life probably knows sure if he was anything less you would be saying he showed barely any emotion and that's why you think he is guilty..but ill shut up and cross my legs since i happen to be male sorry I dared to speak to the perfection that is woman...i mean you have all those subcribers and no videos based on your winning personality and intelligence not your pussy im sure, cause if it was for your looks than it's like you have an unfair advantage for being a woman and we all know that's not possible. Call me an incel I only fuck real women 😉 not you fascist non binary lunatics 👍

    and next week she along with her personal assistant, private security, press agent, on call hair and makeup team, manager, and all other privileged access will be protesting "White privilege" .... so I wonder ... myself being from Montgomery county Maryland and knowing the Betheada, Chevy chase area "VERY .. VERY ..WELL ..WITH THE HIGHEST END OF MONEY LOCATED THERE" is she going too include (1)white "DOCTOR" Ford, (2) white living in one of the richest areas in town. (3) white going to private schools (4) white having collage degree access a home in "cali" fling around the country with beach vacations and the such ... not to mention the half million she just made on her go fund me page in her account. ... the time of day .... will she as all the others throw her under the bus cuz it doesn't fit that weeks narrative. .. I mean a privlaged white women's non rape is no where as victimizing as the P O C women's allegations of anything .. this beautiful Latino woman is whiter then I am and I'm Irish/ Italian ... I would love to know when her and her personal shopper from like what age nine has had a racial encounter ?... I also know a lot of Latinos ... so I ask which one of you family member made you a sexual abuse survivor. ... I mean come on she is doing a book tour to americanize her bank account even further

    It calls itself the "party of science." They relied on Ford's testimony that was refuted completely by her own named witnesses. They relied on Ford's changing testimony. They relied on a unverified, 2-question polygraph. They relied on no physical evidence. Let's quit pretending - you're the party of Diane Feinstein delays, garbage and garbage rules.

    America was spot on. She said it like it is. Unfortunately another woman is put in a position of questioning and humiliation because she dared to speak the truth. It is apparent why women stay silent and this type of thing happens all the time. I respect the women brave enough to speak up and not let society shame them into submission. Submission to the ignorant, abusive mentality and objectifying of women. How long will this country stay in such a limited mentality? Amazons and angels after 200 years still? Although I have a hard time picturing Ol' TJ pitching a fit and making a sour patch kid face. How is that moron even being considered for such a vital role on our country? Then again just look at who is president. it is increasingly difficult to take anything seriously in politics anymore. We are just a nation filled with comedy circuit fodder. Indivisible? Justice for all? Maybe if you are a white privileged male that attends the right school. Maybe if you play the games right. You know all those "drinking" games...
