I'm surprised at the Young Turks for being so small minded. My partner has a full face tattoo and is the kindest gentlest soul you could meet, I think it's more about the design someone chooses.

+frankos rooni, "Many Moaris have full facial tatoos..." Yes, and native cultures like that did it specifically to be intimidating so people should not then be surprised if people find tattooed faces intimidating. We human beings have a specific part of our brain that is dedicated to recognising faces the right way up. We are INCREDIBLY sensitive to small details in a person's face. A tattoo succeeds in making a person's face look very different and abnormal. Of course people are going to be sensitive to that. It would be illogical not to be. Sure, we should all make an effort to look past such things but many people don't try or find it difficult, perhaps because it's not something they see very often. If get a face tattoo and claim that you aren't aware that people are going to view you differently then you're a liar. Don't then call foul when it happens.

How is it that this guy shoots at the cops and lives to stand trial, but all of these unarmed black teens get killed? Doesn't make much sense.

"Even if he was innocent... he's screwed." laughter  So it's amusing ruin the life of an innocent man simply because he has tattoos? Cenk, I know you're a reasonable guy, but here you just look like a heartless asshole.

+John Johnsonson You don't have to feel obligated to remove anything. I don't remove my statements unless directly asked. We have exchanged butter words, but I am not offended. I trust you aren't, either.

These are the most self righteous, close minded, rude, and frankly stuck up people I've ever heard speak. I watch video after video and all they do is put down people who live any lifestyle different from their own and talk as if their shit doesn't stink and being a sheep moving along following the black and white stereotypical moral code forced down our throat by other people like themselves is the only way to live. Most of their comments are often more disgusting and offensive than the story they're discussing. What an ignorant group of people.
