All you had to say was that you disagree that "everywhere" is a common hyperbole.
Instead you devoted three entire paragraphs to personal abuse.
How miserable is your life that you must take out your anger on a single person on the other side of the world who has given you more consideration and patience than you could ever hope to deserve?
Wet back and in translation mullat or mojado, is used here but not to the same degree of racism
I dunno. I stopped doing it when told off by this American lawyer (f) in 1997. Wasn't so serious as to stop us meeting up.
In England I'm no longer hearing the racist jokes I used to do - about the last was reference to a "self-drive car" (subtle that).
Yes, "everywhere is an acceptable hyperbole in everyday conversation" usually of the uneducated, unintelligent, and careless posters such as yourself. It is not nitpicking to point this out when its inaccurate uses affects the conclusions raised by the statements in which it is made.
Remember that a lot of these people couldn't read or write before they started texting on their phones and then came here.
"... couldn´t write before ... texting..."
I had not thought of that. With me the reverse is true, with texting, I stopped writting letters. stopped purchasing postage stamps, and now wonder what to do with all the envelopes and stationary I have around.
OT regarding stationary. -- someone said that with computers we will stop using paper. In my life this is not the case, I use more paper - solution for me is to use up all that expensive stationary Ihave around. I did some graphics, printed it, made a photo copy and e-mailed it. Got back a rather strange response asking who is the saint with a shell in one hand and a and cuff of the other? Answer, Saint leonard patron of pilgrims and prisoners. Reason for the question was that the reverse image of the arms of my college bled through in the photo copy.
I had not thought of that.
There are illiterate people still around - but I'm sure its much, much less than it was.
From Berrysteph: After all, the US sends its police to Israel to be trained in racial profiling.
What evidence have you for that statement? If none, therefore it is subjected to a viewpoint, not a fact, and can be filed in the folder of BS.
Goss, the only thing that people here really have against you, is your super long, barely legible, either rants or professorial "know-it-all" posts, with judgments and ratings attached. Some of us here are at least, if not more intelligent as you, but you continue to perceive yourself as the ONE Who Knows, as if the rest of us have no knowledge of histories and mysteries.
It's the "I'm superior" arrogance that chaffs. Otherwise, I do agree with many of your opinions. Maybe you should try another tack to express your opinions. Just sayin....
The US does not send carte blanche their Police to Israel for training , certain states send certain special police units for training (SWAT) for dealing in urban warfare (which we are all watching) most states do not send their special units , most states will train their most elite units )
The average US Policeman is trained in the US , I would guestimate that 95% of all the US Police elite and otherwise are US trained .
The US US also sends Special Forces to Israel for training in close quarter combat but again not all SEALS etc just certain groups so the generalization of Berry is a lie designed to capture a brief moment

Well known fact, innit.
Do you understand why there is anything like this happening? Either deliberate brutalization - or maybe an under-the-table subsidy of Israel!

There are real, serious, issues people might choose to address - but that's not one of them.
