What a difference an ad makes (see, it's catching)

Aren't the USAians doing extremely well at causing further divisions in their country/society without the additional, and minor, very minor, assistance from the Russians?

I'm reminded of a conversation i had with a recent graduate from here in the UK, a black US guy who got extremely irate and angry every time the news carried a story about a black being killed by a white. Something should be done about it he'd scream.

I politely asked him if he would have much more success and much better outcomes if he could channel his outrage and efforts into stopping the 93% of blacks killed by blacks.

Where'd you get that figure from he demanded.

Your Government (Obama era) i pointed out. Hmmm, an awkward silence ensued.
