muck4doo: It was a question posed to HotWing. You decided to jump into it. Figured you wanted to be part of the conversation.


right. I'm not a goldfish and i can remember past events quite clearly. how we got to this point is still very fresh in my mind.

so, since you clearly believe that it is a black dude who wrote the comment(despite the fact that you haven't come out and said it), please explain how you concluded that it really was a black guy. can YOU tell how a black guy is supposed to write?

RexTalionis: HotWingConspiracy: RexTalionis: megarian: Seems like everyone is seriously grumpy this morning.

I don't know. I feel great. Aside from a splitting headache, I mean, and a blister on my foot because I forgot to wear socks with a particularly uncomfortable pair of shoes yesterday.

How do you forget to wear socks? Doesn't it become immediately apparent when you put the shoes on?

I blame it on my early onset dementia.


I think you're supposed to smoke weed and play video games to stave that off.

Nonsense. I hate everyone, regardless of race, creed, or color.

RexTalionis: HotWingConspiracy: How do you forget to wear socks? Doesn't it become immediately apparent when you put the shoes on?

Also, if you want to get really technical and parse what I wrote, I didn't say that "forgot to wear socks" but rather, I "forgot to wear socks with a particularly uncomfortable pair of shoes."

There's quite a bit of semantic difference between the two.


Right. I never go sock-less with shoes, so it struck me funny.

But more to the point, why does the specter of RACISM!!! loom so large in your mind?  Why has it taken on such monumental psychological proportions for you, such that you feel the need to patrol the world and flip over every rock and leaf hunting for its indicia?

Why does racism rise to the top of your concerns, Inspector Javert?  What makes it the most important issue of your lifetime that you feel the need to appoint yourself as the Constable of Race Relations?

She should have brought it to her manager and had the guy banned from the restuarant. But I guess she felt the need to share it with the world and it ended up her getting in trouble at work.

I never stated it was definitely a black guy, and don't know if it is or not. You and HotWing do know it was definitely NOT a black guy, and I asked how you two came to that conclusion. You two claim to know what opinions real black people do and do not have, being the anti-racism champions you both are.

Since it's apparent that few actually looked at this photo, Ill reiterate: In her Facebook post, she blanked out the person's name on the photo.  Then the Daily Random Bits Of Fluff printed a picture with the person's name.

I find it abhorrent.

  Why has it taken on such monumental psychological proportions for you, such that you feel the need to patrol the world and flip over every rock and leaf hunting for its indicia?

I don't do this, I have no idea what you're talking about. This is what you want/need to believe about for some reason. As it stands, your only interaction with me is quite limited and confined to this site so you assume a lot. Though I do wonder why attempting to rebut me has taken on such monumental psychological proportions for you. You're invested somehow, I'll let the reader draw their own conclusions.

Why does racism rise to the top of your concerns, Inspector Javert?  What makes it the most important issue of your lifetime that you feel the need to appoint yourself as the Constable of Race Relations?

HotWing is the one who knows what black people do and do not think. By standing by hiss side and defending his position, you also assume that role.

I apologize for not posting it in a more noticeable way for you the first time. Hope that helps.

RexTalionis: CJHardin: Did I farking stutter when I said yes? With the previous types of stories like these it may just be the simplest conclusion that she faked it. Normally someone wouldn't be as blatantly racist when their identity is easily found via their name and credit card number. Should I explain my farking opinion in smaller words for you?

So you're saying that we have two possibilities:

1) Customer wrote something offensive on receipt. Waitress, offended, posts it on social media.

2) Customer wrote nothing out of the ordinary, but left no tip. Waitress, offended, decides to find a blank copy of the credit card charge authorization receipt, write in racist epithets on it and forges the customer's signature and then posts it on social media to try to make herself look better.

You're telling me that explanation #2 is the simpler explanation than explanation #1? Let's not forget Hanlon's razor on top of it - never assume malice when mere incompetence would do.


Remember, the girl in question is teenaged. There is no length they won't go to out of spite.

God damn't Phinn.  I love you man.  Ever since the Zimmerman threads, you've been a bastion of reasonableness and your vocabulary has succinctly  described similar thoughts I've had concerning a certain mild, fried quite delectable conspiracy.

I suppose he isn't supposed to take context clues like "as a black man,"  There's certainly more to go on that he was in fact black, similar to their being more to go on that the waitress did in fact recieve a racist 'tip'.  Personally, I'm waiting for the followup.  The handwriting looks similar (especially the 'e'), but the differences in ink look peculiar.

When HotWing was asked how he knew it wasn't a real black guy who made the post, you rushed to his defense with this:

huh. it's almost like people on the internet can claim to be anything they want even if it's not true. someone should let muck4doo know about this.

I apologize for your short memory. Hope that helps. You took a position defending HotWing when he was asked how he knew that a black person didn't make that post. Maybe you don't believe that, and just feel that you had to come to HotWings defense because you like him. You could clarify that if that is the case.

I did indeed point out that  anyone can claim to be anything in a comment on a message board.

You have to start an argument somewhere.  He could also be an AI that has gained consciousness within the intertubes and is here to cause racial unrest.  I think him basing his idea that it COULD be a black man were based around the statement "As a black man."  Until that is proven to be false, it's an appropriate starting point to debate from.  What I want to know is why other people think its not a black man speaking.  Where is the counter evidence to this 'fallacious' claim?

I also refuse to believe the girl in those pictures is actually black.  Her name sounds too normal.  Toni Christina?  Why isn't there a 'q' or an apostrophe anywhere in her name?


So, basically you're saying as a racist, you wouldn't have acted that way, got it.
