I disagree. I want to see more stuff like this.

He seems pretty genuine. Call me naive, but if that Bernie supporter had shown him actual statistics to back up what she was saying, I honestly think he'd concede. The problem lies with the fact that she can't because she's wrong.

This one is fully unedited. Everyone carries a phone with a camera. If he was being deceptive, it wouldn't take long for that to be exposed.
>That's not a debate.
True, it's a conversation. Students volunteer to sit down and discuss.

Yes it is. The topic was actually "male privilege." It went to "white male privilege" very quickly. The reason I thought the first half was revealing is because of something I've talked about here before. The people who rail on about race and privilege are actually some of the most racist and intolerant people.
That black woman wasn't going to change her mind either and was quite racist. "Your white opinion is irrelevant." Wow.

There are a lot of concepts that are false. Privilege is real. If you are born to a family where your parents are together, they are both educated, and have decent income.... That's privilege. Nothing to do with race. Telling black folks that they're going to meet resistance from racism at every corner when trying to make something of their life is very harmful.
Did you catch the last 20 minutes where the guys are talking about affirmative action, etc? I thought that was really good.

I thought Crowder did too. He knew what he was talking about and the people who volunteered to sit down were confident they did too. Shapiro is good.
