This was the tweet:



Pointing out a problem isn't racist.

No surprise there sadly.
When we learned one thing about the gaming industry in just the last 2-3 years, then that the frat boy mentality and conservative mindset is still way too common in it.

Which will never not baffle me.
Every time you see stuff like this especially in the Entertainment Sector, it leaves you wondering how that can exist in a Sector so built on Creativity, thinking outside the box etc.

Long story short, it's a conservative talking point.

WOW that wasn't even bad and it was from 2016. AND statistically hes absolutely RIGHT. Pointing out the hypocrisy of impartial outrage isn't racist. If anything, he's advocating for more black lives to matter even when it's at the hand of other blacks. Or are they allowed to murder each other with impunity? Ending black on black crime is racist now? He should have never been removed from position he had. He proved his point that they're more outraged about someone mentioning black on black crime than the actual lives lost from it which far outweigh killing of blacks from any other group. And if you include black babies killed in the womb by blacks, the number is even higher.

Yea but you're in the box. Anybody that says something different gets removed from life. So are you really supportive of creativity and art from someone like Ye or do they have to align with your pre-approved talking points to be considered a worthy black voice?

So this is Bucky's 'Winter Soldier' outfit. (Maybe they can customize how his metal arm fits in the combat per outfit.) Per outfit different arm abilities. In the film the arm doesn't change into a canon, but it would be really cool, and make him "mega" man like ? Reciting classic mega man gameplay, but, with the 'Winter Soldier' outfit?

How does that make the long story short though? Can't he post conservative talking points?

It's a subject people don't like looking at because it makes them uncomfortable and goes against what the news bombards them with on a daily basis. But the stats are all there that black-on-black crime is far greater than police-on-black crime. This doesn't excuse police brutality, but he is right of course that there is only outrage for one, when the other is entirely ignored.

Of course, this is just one tweet of his. Maybe he tweeted other stuff, but no one has come forth yet to show that.

Imagine actually saying out loud "I am so shocked that there are individuals in the creative sector who think differently than I do."

Liberals have had preferential treatment for so long that they can't believe their ears when they hear something wildly different from the absolute reverse lies they've been told repeatedly in every industrialized aspect of their lives. Their meltdowns on twitter now because they don't have state sponsored platform censorship to help them bully their victims is sending them into a mass REEEEEEEE.

And yes, I would say police brutality is nearly non existent when you compare it to black men (8% of the country) committing the majority of the crimes in this country. If you take away that demographic, USA's mass shooting numbers go waaaaaaay down.

How this is considered a conservative talking point is old guard language. In the Elon's Twitter Era of America, and the Ye The Great's FU Money Era, Truth is no longer being suppressed by the criminals who want to veil our eyes to tell the story of the convenient boobyman THEY want to create.

With the power of truth now moving at full velocity on twitter, the people have the power to combat the vocal minority who had this poor guy taken away from his post. I would like for him to do an AMA on TR forums to make penance to the TR community who claim he owes them something. But really to give him a chance to not hide in shame from speaking the truth in 2016. That's despicable that people can still be canceled for being wise. How silly can this world get? Much sillier if we continue down this path of accepted establishment deceit. The truth is the truth. You can't put that on one individual for noticing.

Im not sure where your dumb ass is sitting on a high horse considering your acceptance of Creativity and art comes down to how much they exclude.
For me its about expanding not narrowing.

You are the kind of people that whine over a Narrative Writers Pronouns and dismiss her work just because of pronouns in her bio.

You are the one who screams "woke" at everything not to your liking and even worse...claims some Liberal conspiracy against you personally.

I support Creativity and Art from people who honor the craft.
True Creativity comes from being detached from Social norms etc, not letting anything stop Art from being crafted.
And people like you, are attached to these things and let them drive you.
