"No offense" (but)

When facing a racial discrimination suit with hundreds of texts where you say n----r, maybe your defense shouldn't be 'I dated a black girl once'.

Anytime someone says the word "but", whatever they said just before that, means nothing.

He's an asshole because he has a pattern, over quite a few years, of doing & saying what he wants without serious repercussions or consequences. He delights in angering & outraging others because, as far as he's concerned, your anger and outrage is impotent - you can't do anything to him about it, and he believes he'll be able to hurt you more should you try.

In short, he's a troll, and he continues to troll because he can. Take that away from him. Here's hoping the lawsuit does exactly that.

I'm not an arsonist, but I know that if a building is obviously torched by an arsonist?  An insurance company typically doesn't pay off.  Just a thought for these tenants as they move out...

I like how he says at one point none of his white tenants owe him rent, and then paragraph after paragraph about a white woman who...owed him rent.

He'll probably try to blame Black Lives Matter.

The AG's suit against Merryman alleges that he rented "substandard" units to tenants in Newport News and promised to make repairs on the homes after they signed their lease and paid their deposit. But instead, he never made good on those promises.
When tenants complained about leaks, sewage problems, or severe structural or electrical issues, Merryman allegedly began a campaign of "abusive, racist, sexist and otherwise unlawful behavior," the suit said. When Black tenants reported issues, the suit alleges he dropped the n-word with abandon and allegedly told complaining tenants, "that's how you Black people act" and "that's the problem with you Black people."


Like all racists, he is the architect of his own misery that he then complains about.

Merryman, the 56-year-old owner of dozens of rental properties in Southeastern Virginia worth over $5 million, has had over a dozen arrests in the past two decades for threats and assaults,

He doesn't sound like a merry man.

FTA: "It just so happens I have no white people that are behind on their rent. Is that a coincidence or is that just weird?" he told The Daily Beast. "I don't know what the pattern is called. Black Lives Matter?"

So, simply put, yes.

Slip in his window,
Break his neck!
Then his house 
I start to wreck!
Got no reason -
What the heck!
Kill my landlord, kill my landlord.
C-I-L-L ...
My land-lord!

It's sometimes fun, in the middle of a conversation to just say. "I don't want to sound racist."   And then carry on the conversation not saying racist things.

This guy is text book racist along with being an absolute shiatstain about it.

Why would he be in a business that clearly causes him such distress? 50,000K a year? I make more than that and I don't have to unclog toilets at 90 something houses.

There's something missing here.

Unless you mean you wore wrap around sunglasses that old folks wear when driving that fit over normal glasses, I find it hard to believe you wore "gooberboi" sunglasses specifically made for gooberbois when marketing and testing them. Unless there was a short time span of truckers and fishermen not being goobers. Then I get it.

Based on the article, i doubt he unclogged anything. He clearly did zero work, and just demanded money from the tenants.

Here's a cute trick they should check this guy out for.

I bet nuts to bolts that guy overpays his vendors and has them hold onto that money for him when there are eyes on him like this. He probably just paid some plumber 150K for a 1,500$ job. "Whoops! I'll get back to you on what to do with that."
 
2021-10-05 1:03:25 PM  
If you're ever at a really crowded and loud bar and can't get service, just say "I'm not racist but" loudly, then place your drink order.

The whole place will pretty much go super quiet and everyone will try to hear what you have to say, so make sure it's a good drink you order

"Merryman told The Daily Beast that only four tenants have protective orders against him." Only four. That's okay, then.

THIS. I have no idea how people can deny with a straight face that racism exists when they and others spew it out constantly. I'm a woman in CT and I even have a haircut that definitely does not scream "conservative", but people will say awful shiat in front of me all the time assuming that I'll agree because I'm white. Nah, I don't agree at all and you're going to GTFO of my house or I'm leaving if I'm at your house. And you're going to know why.

I don't think its that people deny it exists. This dude is obviously racist, i don't think anyone, no matter their frustration level, that is pulling out the N word doesn't harbor some horrible views and opinions.

But it also doesn't mean that any time someone of one race is on one side, and someone of the other is on the other side of an argument, that its automatically a racial thing.

I also think people can just be jackasses and idiots and their actions towards others aren't based on the color of that person's skin.
