Racist biatch made a complaint.

Dude needs to be glad he didn't get shot.

Did this use to happen a ton more without any news coverage?  Or is it happening a lot more now?  If it's the former then I would say us reading about it is a good sign of things to come.

Maybe, but these people tend to indoctrinate their kids with the same racist bullshiat.  This kind of crap will never go away fully; but if we can reduce it, great.

Everybody knows black people don't use bike paths.

When the city of Indianapolis was working to extend the rail trails into the suburbs, there was a lot of resistance from people absolutely convinced that inner city residents would use the trail to head up and rob their homes.

Fake newz biatches, lets post a more plausible story, man is walking baby maybe on his phone or just being a dickhead and taking up whole path, causes lady to veer off path on bike, who maybe gets injured and he probably was like move out the way biatch, she then calls the police to report some guy being a jerk on the path, police respond and he pulls the poor me race card and tweets too.

Where is the video, no video didnt happen cuz you know he was ready to tweet therefore had the means to record a video.

This racist shiat has been going on for hundreds of years. How much more time is needed?
 
2018-05-17 07:38:11 AM  
TFA contains one of the problems with this whole subject: There is a growing list of things people of color can not do in peace without the interference of "well meaning white people" getting involved.

Now I'm a white guy with no experience being black or calling the cops on anyone, but I'm pretty sure this has been going on forever and was probably worse even just 25 years ago. With social media we get far more reporting than ever before on stories that wouldnt have been covered on the nightly news.

The fact that we hear about these individually is a sign that our society is progressing, I hope. I'd wager that 50 years ago this was just part of being black in America. Now it's something you can actually bring to the forefront and have people recognize the absurdity.

Or maybe I'm just the optimist today.

CruiserTwelve: Steakzilla: Did this use to happen a ton more without any news coverage?

Yes.


And let me add further that it was pretty much downplayed if not out right ignored by Conservatives and people claiming to be moderates even when mentioned. Even with the recent stories the default among certain people was to insist that race had no factor in the incident and that it had to be something else. Before the day is over there will likely be at least one person coming in to insist that race was not a factor in this.

Bull. You think little old ladies weren't posting anonymous letters about certain types of people 200 years ago? Or calling the sheriff to run "those people" out of town 60 years ago?

Secretely calling the cops to report on someone because you're afraid to talk to them isn't a new thing.

shastacola: What legitimate reason would the police have to stop a man walking with his baby?


From the original article:

What is clear to anyone with eyes, however, is that Sherman is dark-skinned while his son is not, perhaps prompting the woman to think that a black man somehow stole a white baby.

You're talking to one of our most persistent racial apologists, it's waste of time to bother with him since with him it's always about being an attention whore rather than making an actual point.

That baby is obviously black though. Regardless, if we're going to stop black guys for having lighter skinned babies because it's "suspicious" then I want every redneck white guy openly carrying a gun stopped and questioned by the police because who knows what they're up to.
 
2018-05-17 07:45:31 AM  
Black in DC?   Damn I feel bad for the cops that are going to be stopping 99% of the city's residents.  I think some white lady needs to move somewhere a little less "colorful" or she's going to be very stressed out.

Says the guy that doesn't have to worry about sh*t like this every f*cking day of his life.
How about you having to prove that you have the right to be here, to simply exist in spaces that white people don't? Would that take a toll on your mental health or well being, having to think about whether or not you should go where they go with every interaction? Wondering if  some moron is going to call the police on you for simply being?

There's reasons why black people - especially black males - die at higher rates of high blood pressure, hypertension, and other stress related diseases even when correcting for diet. This is one of them.
