When an Islamist extremist commits an act of terrorism, some claim that a lack of condemnation from ordinary Muslims is tantamount to tacit approval.

When a white extremist carries out a bloodthirsty racist attack - should we expect the same condemnation from white people?

It's sad that many Americans show more respect for the 2nd Amendment than they do for the concept that people should be able to go about their lives in peace. I think after the Sandy Hook shootings it became clear nothing was going to chance.

Pointing out hypocrisy isn’t the same as racism.

Good point sandyRoe!
my, you're certainly being accused of bigotry and racism by a higher class of person here. Some might think they're doing their best to deflect the discussion away from the OP, but I'm sure their motives are of the purest.
Are you in the same hole as sp is,jno.I will send out two extra long ladders for the both of you.Racism is racism,whether it is by white racists or non-white racists.Bigotry is bigotry whether it comes from you or whether it comes from TTT or whoever.
sp1814 - This point crops up regularly on this site, and the answer is always the same.

Lack of condemnation does not speak to a sense of tacit approval.

It speaks to a simple lack of time, and the understanding that some things can actually be taken as read, without the need to state them verbally, or a a site like this.

If I wrote down all the things I disapprove on a daily basis, i would be here all day, and night, and the next day.

But I like to think that my fellow AB'ers are intelligent enough and similarly in line with my views on the most obvious offences to even the most basic of moral compasses.

For that reason, I don;t feel the need to express my condemnation of this act.

If you wish to think that points to tacit approval of it, then that is your assumption, and your problem.
Thanks for that,Andy.Perhaps sp and a few others might reflect on their own racism or reverse racism.Should racists such as sp be banned or suspended?I would say no,but up to AB.
ynnafymmi, can you point out SP's alleged racist remark(s)?
Just reading between the lines,TCL,just reading between the the lines.Anti-white racism is just as bad as anti-black racism.Is it not?
come on ynnafymmi, you know only whites are racist!
"Anti-white racism is just as bad as anti-black racism.Is it not?"

It is but you are not able to identify a specific comment from SP as being racist, are you?
Look it up yersel,i cant be reasd.

That’s my point.

This is that kind of comment that is raised frequently on AB whenever there’s a terrorist incident, or a story concerning Islamic extremism.

The same people say that unless followers of Islam don’t condemn the act, then “surely they’re giving tacit approval”.

I’m hoping that this will now be forever put to bed.
ynnafymmi - reading between the lines?

I don’t follow.






"Look it up yersel"

Look what up? You're not making any sense.
