No one painted anyone as racists.
1. Just because someone mentions black people arming themselves =/= race war.
2. Opting out of the discussion because.. what? Because something is happening you don't want to discuss? Okay.
3. Thinking a race war.. on ASSUMPTIONS which were already plainly pointed out.
4. Shit is going down RIGHT NOW -- hence the discussion.
5. No one made it "flamebait" -- peoples' inability to address the topic without making the same assumptions you just posted makes it one.
