Go talk to the people of color who sold their own kind to the white man for profit originally then we can talk about the rest of the history of slavery.

The article appears to be a series of leftist, anti-American, anti-Anglo propaganda from several unknown, over-privileged, and unproven college students’ “essays”.
"The laws that forbid the carrying of arms are laws of such a nature. They disarm only those who are neither inclined nor determined to commit crimes.... Such laws make things worse for the assaulted and better for the assailants; they serve rather to encourage than to prevent homicides, for an unarmed man may be attacked with greater confidence than an armed man."
- Thomas Jefferson, Commonplace Book (quoting Cesare Beccaria), 1774-1776

I find it ironic that these people claim to be freedom fighters and so on, but they are literally outright using the same tools of domination and control they claim to decry. One of the slides specifically calls for political reeducation, practically verbatim. You know who else had political reeducation camps? The Soviets. Know who still DOES to this day? China, and *North Korea -- both of whom are some of the worst human rights offenders outside of the middle east.

These people should have their pictures put next to the English Language Dictionary entry on "Cognitive Dissonance".

North Korea I think you mean.

Its almost sad but folks in places like Hong Kong etc are protesting and getting pepper sprayed rubber bullets beaten etc as the push for my equality and rights. Yet folks HERE want to allow uncle sam to have MORE control.

I look at it and wonder why folks dont see that IF they give ol uncle the power over them they will soon be like those in these other places protesting for their freedoms back.

Talk about short sighted.

I won't  subscribe to the NY Slimes just to read an occasional article.
A well balanced breakfast, being necessary to the health of the nation, the right of the people to keep an eat cereal shall not be infringed.  Now who gets the ceral, the breakfast or the people?
Sure I'll shoot your Glock.  Just hang it with the rest of the targets.

Only thing the NYT is good for is to use to light the bbq or fireplace. However if used for BBQ one must give a sufficient burn time to allow the liberal BS to burn off completely.

If rights under the Second Amendment can be regulated or taxed, why not regulate lies published under the First?
