Commuters dude, commuters

So they were never part of the communities that the NYPD had to deal with on a nightly, non-working day of the week? Hmm.


I don’t understand your question, but dude there are like a million to 1.5M workers that come in from outside the NYPDs AOR (320k from NJ alone). Plus the 700k tourists the city averaged daily. Those people were largely absent from the city starting in late March. They were not disappeared

It goes back to your "despite the lockdown" comment that started this: These people being there for work or not doesn't alter the daily/nightly experience of the people who live in the city as it relates to crime.

Some dude in Pittsboro flies his Confederate flag next to a billboard, so BLA bought the billboard.

So in the last couple of weeks, I've been filling in for some of my company's other locations. All of these that I've been to is a more urban area than where my "home" clinic is. Due to that, I've actually seen more patients that are black than I normally do in my clinic. In every case that I've had a black patient, they were exceptionally polite and adding "sir" and "ma'am" after every sentence. Now, I very, very rarely get such respect (probably not the right word) from any of our white patients. Even the nicest of the white patients come across as familiar and informal. And I started wondering if the reason the black patients were so respectful was because they were brought up to be that way towards white people (men, in particular) as a preemptive defense. Now sure, raising your kids to be respectful to everyone else is a goal we should all have but I couldn't help but feel a little guilty because as an older than them white man, maybe they instinctively responded as they were taught to in an effort to possibly survive other situations.

I don't know. I don't think I explained it very well, but it just felt wrong to me. Not that their politeness wasn't genuine, but that it was, perhaps, borne of other things.

‘white guilt’ or sociological epiphany?

Spoiler: show
the answer might surprise you

How much of this is due to the great migration? This speech pattern is consistent with Southern manners, and this is almost certainly the way their grandparents spoke.

What region are your clinics in?

just saw the video of that WNBA walk-off during the national anthem and that might be the first time i actually felt like America was disrespected by an anthem protest

but i am sure the problem is me

and not that we have created a corporate contest to see who is the most BLM-ey

are these victims now sports league mascots?

i want justice too

but this is getting silly

everyone is so self-righteous, everywhere

jesus complexes everywhere

as far as the eye can see

It absolutely is a competition now to see who is the most virtuous. WNBA walking off is strong but not strong enough considering they are a non entity absolutely nobody cares about. What they should have done was go as extreme as possible: naked and fingerblasting
