Yawn.

1. Didn't know Edelman was Jewish (or care)
2. DeSean Jackson has demonstrated over the years that he's super dumb.

I hate Julian Edelman and the Patriots, but Edelman deserves a standing ovation for that response. I hope Jackson takes him up on the offer to visit the DC museums.

Very classy way to respond to that.
Kudos, Julian.

Also, fark the Patriots.

LOL. Pittsburgh doesn't get a pass. Pittsburgh has a deeply embedded problem that needs to be dealt with.

Yeah, I know. It was a very lazy response. It should've been more than 1 sentence.

The Holocaust Museum is very well done but man, that's a tough visit going through the exhibits. I've heard great things about the new museum of AA history but wasn't able to score tickets when I was in town (failed 2 mornings to get day of). Hoping to see it some day when things eventually let up.

If there's a city in America there's probably a history of racism.

Yeah, only been to a small exhibit really in Ft Lauderdale & that was bad enough looking at the pictures & reading the stories.  Can't imagine being there or visiting some of the camps.

Education & exposure like this can tell you who's redeemable & able to change & who's just a garbage human being who there's no hope for.

Colleague of mine went to Dachau and said it was a good/tough experience. Basically as a researcher, you'd see about all knowledge that came from the horrific experiments and just makes you feel dirty from it. Totally worth the visit from what he said, but that one should prep that it is quite somber whole time.

I've been to Auschwitz/Birkenau. It is emotional despite how many of the buildings in Birkenau were destroyed.

Is it antisemitic to think it's silly to think that bronze age campfire stories are historical fact? To be fair I also feel that way about the New Testament and the Koran too.

No. it's antisemitic to say that you think Jews are blackmailing America, and praising a speech where a notorious bigot and antisemite say bad things about Jews.

But you were really edgy and said bad things about religion, so yay for you.  Here's a cookie.

Went to Dachau when I was in 8th or 9th grade. That is some hideous, sobering shiat. It just....there's an aura. There's something about those places. I can't even... the whole place is just wrong. And coupled with the pictures and stories and accounts that were there?

I think the worst were the pictures of the piles of shoes... that stuck with me. How many lives :(
Anyone who says that shiat was fake in my presence is gonna get a punch in the throat.

That's what I've always heard & if I had the chance I'd go, but I'd make sure I made a trip to a bar afterwards.

No pearl clutching, for sure

I am so whacked realizing how ignorant I've been for 63 years. Sad. Insulated. Almost brainwashed. Sigh. Like .... I knew it but I never pursued the full impact.

I've been too preoccupied being protective of my wife of 20 years who happens to be Mexican. Her family has roots in the USA since 1846 and they've had at least 1 family member in the USMC from 1895 until 2002.

It's all so farked up now.

I went to the DC Holocaust Museum back in January. Very informative, but it is overwhelming to discover all that happened then. I'm glad I made it there to learn and understand what was done to Jewish people back then.
 
2020-07-09 5:58:52 PM  
And at the Holocaust Museum, they had one of the rail cars that the Nazis packed the Jewish people into to head toward the camps.

I visited Terezin when I was 12.  IMHO, visiting a former concentration camp is something everyone should do at least once.

And I still remember how cold it felt inside the barracks....even though it was a warm spring day outside.

When Lenny Dykstra can throw shade at you, you need to rethink your life.

It's one of those things that you need to do, and you don't really feel better once you've done it. You've just, kinda, had a glimpse at the levels of evil humanity is capable of. More importantly, you see what Hannah Arendt referred to as "the banality of evil".

It's one thing to kill another human. It's another thing to do it in incredible quantities. But to be willing to make another human pass through Death, and to do it with all the personal attention and respect to individuality that you get at the DMV... that's different.

One of the absolute most incredible museums I've been to. But my goodness is it a tough visit. I could barely handle some of the displays there, but it's so, so important. And so well presented.
