I don't know if she's a racist but it certainly appears that she's a blthering idiot.

Think about it, she thinks minorities have to steal to get by and its racist to arrest them for it.

Really?  Isn't this the part where someone would say that, and then you'd respond with that dictionary definition of racist that you like to use and point out that it doesn't fit? :P

How do you get to that part in bold from her tweet?

She lumps all blacks/minorities into one group with negative attributes.  Sometimes the definition does fit.

How else would you interpret it?

Perhaps you don't interpret it.  It's not my place to put meaning onto that statement that isn't there.

No she doesn't.  That's an interpretation that is placed on her statement completely by YOU.

I think we as a society tend to place too much value in property and not enough in people.

But I agree that it was a bad Tweet

Well IMO she made a racist statement.  Do you think arresting looters and protecting private property supports white supremacy like she stated?

Nope, I already stated that she was an idiot for making that statement.  Doesn't make the statement racist

It's basically a troll thread,and if they actually believe this is a relevant thread I overestimated their intelligence.

Not really her point, but close:

"The overblown looting coverage points to a large and well-documented trend in racial bias in reporting on crime in the wake of natural disasters, as retired Army Lt. Gen. Russel L. Honore, who helped to manage the military response to Hurricane Katrina in 2005, told the Washington Post.

“People think that if you’re poor or black you’re always trying to steal something,” Honore said. “These warnings about looting validate the stereotypes that people hold about poor people.”

...Narratives of increased looting in the wake of environmental disasters are always inextricably linked to race and class, much in the same way that the storms themselves disproportionately impact the same poor and marginalized communities those narratives set in their crosshairs."

I don't disagree with her statement, I just don't think it applies in this particular case. Sometimes people should go to jail, sometimes those people are black.

And your point is quoting my post?

 

See one of the usual suspects has arrived to end the cordial debate.

Who doesn't need 7 pair of Air Jordan's in a flood?  Just trying to survive.   In style.  Just be glad there wasn't a Jos. A. Banks in the neighborhood!  They would be trashed.
