This is a site for discussing roleplaying games. Have fun doing so, but there is one major rule: do not discuss political issues that aren't directly and uniquely related to the subject of the thread and about gaming. While this site is dedicated to free speech, the following will not be tolerated: devolving a thread into unrelated political discussion, sockpuppeting (using multiple and/or bogus accounts), disrupting topics without contributing to them, and posting images that could get someone fired in the workplace (an external link is OK, but clearly mark it as Not Safe For Work, or NSFW). If you receive a warning, please take it seriously and either move on to another topic or steer the discussion back to its original RPG-related theme.

"Larry Elder is the black face of white supremacy."

Translation: don't let that free man lure more slaves off the plantation.

Yeah, I went there.

The LA Times article you quote almost went there on its own:

“Like a lot of Black people, though, I've learned that it's often best just to ignore people like Elder. People who are — as my dad used to say — skin folk, but not necessarily kin folk.”
'How dare you yearn to breathe free, bigot!'

Jesus. These people have no self-reflection at all.
Self-reflection means you may find that you are partially at fault for what ails you.  Which then means you must make efforts to correct what is wrong with you as part of the healing process.  And effort is antithetical to these people.  Their entire world-view revolves around finding reasons while everyone else must fix their problems for them.  They are lazy children, who never want to grow up...

You are the last person around to be lecturing others on the topic of self reflection after your lack of it lately.

Yes you do need to get ban.  Your not here for a conversation your here to shut us up and piss on our actual concerns.  Not only that, but your a fucking traitor to your country, to everything that is good, and sold yourself off like a whore like the rest of your neo con kin.

LOL but remember folks, I am the totalitarian here! Dissent must be silenced!

Seriously, you're just like a good little SJW. Someone disagrees with your view of the world and you want to cancel them because you can't handle a dissenting voice.

I'm not a Californian, but I've lived in this state for 4 decades, in the North, Central and Southern areas. It's most assuredly not the place it once was.

California is huge, like bigger than many countries huge. It's far too large in populated land and populace to be one state and that's the cause of many of our problems. If California was at least chopped into North & South like other state splits, things would be better, but realistically it should be 3-5 smaller states.

Our K-12 education system is absolute shit and our colleges are communist indoctrination centers. But not smart Soviet scientists. The CSU and UC system crank out immature and entitled clowns with overpriced degrees.

Non-violent crime like petty theft has effectively been decriminalized in the cities. Regardless of what's on the books at the moment, the reality now is non-violent criminals have free reign with scant punishments if caught.

The biggest violent crime problem is homeless-on-homeless violence. Lots of rape reports. They generally don't mess with people, but you often see drugged up nutbag behaviors and anywhere they congregate smells like piss and looks like a 3rd world refugee nightmare...in the wealthiest (and most libtard voting) cities in America.

Notice how I separated "homeless" and "people"? Yeah, nobody views them as human. Giant panhandling rats that make warrens under freeways and beg for drug money.

Wildfires have become normalized now. Libtards keep crying "climate change", yet the reports of arson, mismanagement and homeless camps ablaze are the real culprits. It's a regular thing for dozens of acres of urban park areas to go up in smoke, and that's not counting the giant fires involving thousands of acres of forests.

I'm actually cool with the fires. Not great for Man, but vast fires serve their purpose in nature, and if you ever hike in a post-fire area, you'll see what I mean over time.

On the plus side, the beaches and weather are gorgeous. The climate is extremely varied as is the topography. For instance, from downtown LA, you are 2 hours from numerous beaches, multiple snow play mountain resorts, vast empty deserts and all the urban delights you can imagine.

However, the state has declined for decades - mostly due to illegal immigration and other idiocy, but its nearly in freefall now. In many ways, California isn't even recognizably part of America anymore. LA is fast becoming Mexico City, except with way more expensive real estate (but a massive crash is incoming).

The moment I'm in a position to escape, I'm gone. Maybe sooner if the CoronaChan retardation keeps getting more draconian.

This is all very depressing to someone my age. Back in the early 1980's things were so hopeful.

It may have been hopeful in the early 80s but by the 90s?

Fun fact.  Trump received more votes from California than any other state.  He received more than 6 million votes from Californians, more than from either Texas or Florida (or any other state, really).
