    The Fake News will only say, “eight people,” or, “gang of looters,” or, “group of men and women,” or, “eight people broke into,” and so on."

    Oh, I'm hearing your bullhorn of a dog whistle loud and clear.
    What exactly do you think the headline should have stated?

    I'm here:

    gold coast - Google Search

    I haven't actually been to the outback yet, just as most Russians haven't been to Siberia.

    Now what were you saying? Oh yes, nothing. Try and do better next time.

    Go to YouTube and search for the word Looting.

    As you scroll down what is familiar to most videos? Americans aren’t allowed to say. They try but end up with a gag around their mouth. When you are gagged, all you can say is, “Mmggh.”

    Look at today’s Daily Mail:

    Eight looters broke into Fort Lauderdale clothing retailer | Daily Mail Online

    “Eight people looting?” There’s an adjective missing. If they were Sumo wrestlers it would say, “Eight Sumo Wrestlers looting.” If they were Klu Klux Klan members they would say, “Eight KKK members looting.” If they were Republican congressmen it would say, “Eight Republican congressmen looting.”

    The Fake News will only say, “eight people,” or, “gang of looters,” or, “group of men and women,” or, “eight people broke into,” and so on.

    Who does this benefit, and how, exactly? Can anyone explain, or are you really not the Land of Liberty at all, but the Land of Mmggh, since you’ve all been gagged?

    So your complaint is that folks do not use pejoratives for African Americans to the degree you think they should?

    Sadly, that's not an entirely unfamiliar complaint by some here... as well as some who are no longer here.
