You've just implied that racism is endemic and pervasive in America, therefore your protest against racism must mean you hate what you consider to be at the core of the nation. Is hating its (according to you) fundamental nature distinguishable from hating the country itself?

This seems like circular logic/self fulfilling prophecy:

"You're holding things in your hands that you've been holding all day like water bottles, we've decided this is now a threat.  Time to go."

This is going to be a war of attrition in the sense that there are hundreds of thousands of people protesting.  Without calling in army there is only so many 18 hour days these cops can do standing around in riot gear before they start to crack while the protestors can just rotate in and out.

Let them burn themselves out with this routine.  Red bulls and monster can only get them so far.

Whataboutism much?

Nas is like: People on Twitter are freaking out because they saw on Karenbook that ANTIFA was going to bus in their shock troops and burn down their suburb.

Lol no one is coming to loot the olive garden.


This AntiFa shock trooper still hasn't gotten his check from Soros for all the other protests I've attended, so I'll be keeping local for now, so the Branch Dildonians can stand down from "defending" Olive Gardens in Kennewick, BFE, or anywhere else.

lack of warmth: edmo: I stuck that on my Facebook. The haters can't argue that one.

Which is crazy, since there has been other forms of protests in our history that were also considered un-American.  Like all those "commie-hippies" who protested the Vietnam war.  Granted, that is the current place we're at.  I'm just pointing out no matter what the subject, protesting in America short of wage increases is un-American.  So there you go, protest bad things, un-American; protest not making more money as a union worker, American.

/okay, there are also protesting against normal things like pets, and eating meat, that just illogical.


Considered "un-American" by whom? The excercise of free speech for or against its government is a fundamental and foundational principle of American values. No matter what generation within which they occur. Those who claim that protest is un-American are actually un-American.

Hardly the point, Bubba. That is not the point.

I'm not even looking at the link. Know why? Because chances are whatever countries on that list do not purport the be The Leader of the Free World. Guaranteed they don't have a 250 year old constitution that states quite clearly that All People Are Equal Before the Law.

There is a difference. The USA is the Shining House on The Hill - not the Reichstag in 1933.

"NO HATE IN OUR HOLLER"

[Fark user image 850x637]


I'll buy that guy a beer.

Back in the late 80s, I was at my grandparents' place in SE Ohio when I heard my grandfather drop (African-American slur)-Holler in conversation. I asked my dad wtf, and he sighed and pulled out some old maps of the area- stuff from the 20s.

Lots of names I knew and know. Ferry, Cadiz, Short Creek, Aetnaville, tons of places that barely have a dot on a Rand McNally map.

Then N-Holler.

Back in the bad old days, Cadiz was very split. The guys who worked the mine were dirt poor. The owners? Richer than Croesus. Topping it off, the town was racist as fark, and established a "town" (basically tumbledown shacks) for the black workers. Cadiz was a sundown town in all but name. Hence, the Holler.

The name formally changed in about 73. I still heard people using the old name into the late 90s.

My grandfather stopped using it that day. Didn't want to spread that legacy of what he saw.

He's a white former NBA player and you should read the op-ed he wrote about all this.  I'll excerpt one paragraph here.

https://www.kentucky.com/opinion/op-ed​/article243210281.html

I went to parties in the suburbs "country" where I grew up as a teenager in a town of about 50,000 people. I also went to those same parties in the projects. Because I came up in both places. And in both locations, underage kids were drinking, smoking weed, basically just behaving like teenagers. But I'll give it to you straight: When the cops pull up to a bonfire out in the country, the kids don't move a muscle. Because they all know nobody is going to jail. When your parents likely know the sheriff, the prosecutor or the judge, your mom and dad get called. You get in "trouble" at home. On the other hand, when cops pull up to a party in the projects, people run and scatter because they know they're going to jail. They know they're getting fined, beat-up, or even shot. I saw that difference first hand.
