qorkfiend: Sure, if the South gives up their Confederate symbols and rhetoric. If you don't want people to remember you for things that happened 150 years ago, then don't embrace the things that happened 150 years ago as an integral part of your culture.
Kyro: Nabb1: Oh, bless your heart. You really think all Southerners obsess about the Civil War all day longing for a way of life long gone, don't you. I hate to break it to you, but most of us go our whole day without even thinking about the Civil War. That is unless some poor unfortunate Yankee with an inferiority complex brings it up.The other day I was talking with a fellow son of the soil about the War of Northern Aggression, and how much we wish things could just go back to the good old days of white power and yankees staying out of our business.Except that conversation never happened. Or anything like it. Nor have I ever heard a conversation like that take place. .
ongbok: First rule of self defense is that you respond to an attack with reasonable force to repel the attack. In other words if a single person punches you, you respond with a punch, kick, tackle. You don't pull a knife and stab them. Once you go for a weapon you just escalated and can't claim self defense.
groppet: The last time I was in Atlanta 8 years ago my friend got stabbed while we were leaving an after party. There was a big fight out front and he was mistaken for one of the people that started it. He didnt get hurt too bad got it in the shoulder. It was a shiatty trip all the way around and I have vowed to never go back. My companys HQ is in Atlanta now and I come up with every excuse not to go there for awards and stuff.
Insatiable Jesus: laziest team in the NFL.
Insatiable Jesus: what a pile of failed humanity Falcons fans are.
Insatiable Jesus: The only thing worse than a stadium full of Falcons fans happens when the Saints come to town. Human garbage
Insatiable Jesus: you worthless punks.
Insatiable Jesus: Sherman should have salted the earth here.
Cheeseface: Protip: it's not. It's the burbs that's full of northerners who are too afraid of black people to live where any actual culture is based.
SpikeStrip: ray has a pretty air-tight alibi this time.

I think his mom got fed up when he set fire to a tire in the backyard. This in suburban Atlanta./ yes I am a damn Yankee// Atlanta sports teams are doomed to craptastic failure/// Bless my heart
born_yesterday: I gotta ask: was there a reason to burn the tire, like political commentary, or was it a case of "it just needed burnin'!"?
