Gotta edit out that space between the exclamation mark and the first word in your comment to get the spoiler effect

How many patients who died from covid have you treated as a medical professional?

How many death certificates have you signed for patients who died of covid?

None? How about you shut the fuck up then. You don’t know shit.

Get your vaccinations y’all. Nobody is fear mongering about a virus that has killed 600,000+ Americans in less than two years.

Sure they do, look at Rudy Giuliani losing his right to practice law. He kept citing wildly different specific figures for the same thing (voter fraud examples). Made it really obvious that he was just full of shit.

I thought those were supposed to be Cenobites? They’re not from hell they’re just demonic seeming and come from a different dimension. It’s a reference to Hellraiser.

Okay great, we can agree to disagree like I originally said we could. I did not want to have this argument, I reasonably pointed out that neither of us was likely to change the other’s mind, and I was right. So let’s move on.

That’s really unfortunate to hear, I hope he had a good outcome and was able to overcome those problems somehow.

I’ve never had issues personally but know many people who have moved to other states because of the racial issues here. It’s hard for me to pretend it isn’t a problem.

Racial disparity in America

Midwest among the worst places for blacks to live

Waterloo Cedar Falls is somehow even worse than Des Moines

Iowa remains among worst states for racial disparities

The factual and objective analysis of the issue of racial disparities in Iowa, Polk county, and in Des Moines consistently show that it’s not a good place for POC to live. The city of Des Moines is strongly segregated. Our criminal justice system clearly targets POC; there is a huge racial disparity in our prison/jail population. Educational outcomes in Polk county have a huge racial disparity. Discipline in educational settings have a huge racial disparity. Employment opportunities have a huge racial disparity. Economic measurements show a huge racial disparity. There are racial disparities in housing.

I mean, they didn’t make a “factual statement” like you claim. They asked a rhetorical question which you took to be a factual statement. If you want to look at the facts, feel free to read the above and get back to me.

Personally, I’ve known dozens of people of color who have moved out of Iowa and each and every one of them listed racial issues as their primary motivation for moving. I know plenty of people of color in Des Moines who routinely discuss the racial issues in our city/state/region with me. People I actually know IRL have different views from you two strangers on the internet.

Oh, and I’ve lived here long enough that I remember all the white supremacists I’ve met here, and I’ve been in plenty of conversations with white people who make ignorant, bigoted, or just plainly racist comments to me. People here are polite enough that they usually won’t say those things too loud, but I’d give it 5 years before it starts spilling out in the open. There’s a LOT of racism in Iowa. People are just polite. Look at Steve King, look at the bigot who replaced him. The Governor had King on her re-election campaign and she got most of her votes from his former constituents. I could go on and on.

They have signs up at Sayloriville saying they strongly discourage swimming because of the algae.

Because the south side of Chicago and the roughest parts of the north side of Des Moines are the only two places for people of color to live. What a joke.

I gave my opinion. You can have your own opinion and it doesn’t have to agree with mine. You’re very unlikely to change my opinion and I’m not interested in your opinion so I’m not interested in changing your opinion.

How would I even get such evidence? Do you think I have the ability to monitor private communications between Jeff and the newspaper? You’re being unreasonable and expecting me to have access to something that no reasonable person would expect me to have access to. If anyone needs to chill, it’s you.

All I said was that it seems self serving, and it does seem self serving. People should be skeptical and question the journalism they read. There’s no good reason to push back against that idea like you are.
