    To be honest I think that the 'regressive left' that right wing youtubers spend so much time complaining about is largely imaginary; I've even come across youtube channels that edit chants by black lives matters protests in order to make them sound violent.
    For example a chant might go 'We won't rest, we won't stop, until killer cops are in the dock,'.
    and a right wing youtuber might then edit it to 'we won't stop, killer cop', and then claim that the protestors are shouting 'we won't stop; kill a cop'.

    I think those youtubers do this because they know that their audience won't be skeptical. Pandering to the views of the alt right means guaranteed views and Patreon support, which means more money for them.

    Alt right?
    Anti BLM doesn't equate to alt right.
    And yes, BLM marches have indeed involved chanting "slogans" describing their desire for dead cops.
    Is every chant like that? No.

    Don't try to tell me your beloved leftist never take things out of the context to make a stronger headline

    I've no doubt there are some bad people in the black lives matter movement. I just think that their significance is massively exaggerated.
    Real feminists, liberals, or whatever else youtubers decide they are going to complain about, often aren't outrageous enough to be entertaining, so they either cherry pick very peculiar examples who aren't representative, or they just make things up.

    Meanwhile, they ignore the real problems that these organisations exist to confront. For example I was astonished to find out that the United States still has a very large number of cases of lead poisoning, because of poor enforcement of building regulations, particularly in poor neighbourhoods. Black lives matter has pointed out that some prominent victims of police shootings were also victims of lead poisoning, and that this may have been causative in the troubled lives they had, which eventually resulted in lethal confrontations with police:
    Reuters finds lead levels higher than Flint’s in thousands of locales

    I've mentioned this to anti-blm and alt right people before, with the expectation that it would shock them as much as it outraged me.

    They said they didn't care, and went back to complaining about the lyrics of chants.

    Blacks as anyone else are free to find a job and move to a better neighborhood, why are they complaining? Just because you were born into a poor family doesn't mean you will have to be poor forever.

    I would advise you to keep away from statements like that.

    They're certainly free to not go around making babies then leaving them in the dust.
    Rates of single parenthood within the black community are abysmal, and it certainly has an impact financially.
    A lot of the issues in the black community are just self-perpetuated.

    Because the truth burns?

    No, because ignorance doesn't look good on anyone. Many people assume that the problem of low-income minorities have an easy way out of poverty by just getting a job and moving.

    There's unpopular opinions, and then there's attacking other posters and making bigoted statements, neither of which are okay on FAF. So can we please back off from making broad, derogatory generalizations about particular ethnicities and calling each other names? (Hint: this is a rhetorical question; "no" is not a valid answer.)

    Thank you.

    Asking for free art makes you look desperate and pathetic, put some effort into looking for those offering,

    Garg love to you all.

    people asking for free drawing requests and then complain about "the muzzle isn't as short" or "the color scheme is different" and those are fine but you should've told me when i sketched the drawing and shown you where i would place the colors. and they complain *after* i finished the lineart, coloring, and shading. making me wonder if they truly deserve 4 hours of my day.

    and if you meant something other htan the fandom, i guess my country's way of dealing with LGBT people can be quiet, questionable. but ehhhhh, a little 20 years in jail never hurt anyone

    Too many snowflakes and thin-skinned people in the fandom.

    Apart from that, some people are lovely to talk with.
