On being a SJW

Today for the first time I learned the phrase Social Justice Warrior. (sjw) I never knew of this term or its negative connotations. It made me think all day. Why would someone mock another for wanting a better world? I grew up in the Catholic church but haven't attended a Mass in over a decade. There were many reasons for this (although I have never questioned myself a higher power) but I was thinking today about Jesus as a social justice warrior. Above all that is what he was. Not in today's negative way where apparently I'm trying to gain virtual SJ points that I can redeem at the SJ Warehouse for valuable goods created by people making a fair wage.. So call me a social justice warrior. I like it

There's nothing wrong with it as long as you use correct facts and don't rush into something with incomplete or inaccurate information. Or twist information to fit your agenda while leaving out facts that would weaken your position. Which you have previously done.

Opinion is just that. Facts are just those. I have no agenda other than fairness. So, apparently only sjw week twist or omit facts. Good to know.

You are such a pleasant person. Like I said. Use your pejorative terms. They only embolden me. So who are these other social justice warriors here who I'm trying to impress and score points with? I have just about pissed everyone off. Oh. Yeah. I'm impressing Jesus

Thanks

Its funny that you have issues with others use of pejoritive terms but have no issue using terms like - "xenophobes". "it is already legal and accepted that cops can kill black kids" "they will train there weapons on these new immigrants in little Mexico" towards those that don't follow your beliefs....

Did I specifically target you? Nope. I thought your first response on immigration thread was very moderate. If you really don't think that a disproportionate number of minorities are killed by cops v. whites than you need to read more. I'll find the study so I don't get accused of making up facts to fit an agenda. When I use the word xenophobe. I was referring to xenophobes. If you are one. Welp it was targeted at you. If not than don't accuse. Also where do I redeem these SJ points? I should have decades worth
