"I hate racists but here's a wall of text why they're not so bad"
every riner post
I think he's more often trying to undercut that anything actually is racist. That way he can condemn the idea of racism without ever acknowledging its existence in any situation.
Why would I want to condemn the idea of racism if I am what you claim I am??
None of what you said here is true. That's not what I'm doing and I don't believe you actually think that. I think you are smarter than this, but I could be wrong.
All of these social progressive causes are set up to NEVER allow for dissent. You take a moral position against racism, then point out a situation that you think is racist. If someone does not agree with you, or even questions it, well then they are racist. If you can get a bunch of other people to pile on, all the better, now anyone who disagrees is REALLY racist! There is no possible option for disagreement, since your position is 100% moral, and you have the backing of the group.
Because why would anyone argue that something might not be racist??? How could anyone actually take the opposite side, to defend the racist position? OMG it's so obviously white knighting for racists! Every claim of racism needs to be accepted as racism. People who don't accept that are quite obviously racist.
You understand how absurd that is, right? Your fake outrage is outrageous.
Real racism exists. This professor who called the cops on the guy for not changing seats, based on what other students are saying, may very well be racist. That exists. If that's the case, fuck that racist, I'm glad he was exposed. There are plenty of similar but more blatant examples of racism. And that STILL does not make Sidewalk Sally racist because she called the cops on black people without any proof of racism.
Much of this is valid. You're better when you legitimately engage rather than trying to get other people to fall into disingenuous ideological traps.
My outrage isn't fake but it can sometimes be a bit aggressive.
Your outrage was not aggressive at all, that piece of shit is straight up racist trash who believes stop and frisk was needed because blacks and Hispanics are naturally inclined to commit crimes. He has been provided with studies that offer insight on the topic which he ignores so he can continue to spew his racist bullshit.
Instead of herp derping about “group think” the racist piece of trash should stop being a racist piece of trash if he doesn’t want to be labeled as such.
HA! I'm going to assume you are just trying to illustrate my point here. Well done.
Too bad for you that your posting history has already illustrated my point, but please feel free to put more of your racist ideologies on display, that’s always good for a laugh.
My posting history is as described above. If I question your claim of racism, that, by default, makes me racist. The only way I could not be racist is if I agree with any claim of racism you identify.
You yell racism, I roll my eyes, repeat over and over and over.
It’s cute that you want to paint that way and you probably have convinced yourself of this but your posting history shows who you really are, a racist piece of shit.
ok. Well I'm not doing this with you today, so let's just agree that you think everything is racist, and I disagree and think some thing are racist and some are not, so I'm a racist. Save your next post, I'm not reading it.
You’re a racist, your post are not simply denying that some things might not be racist. Your post are the embodiment of racist memes.
You literally tried to deny that lynching were racist, you claimed that stop and frisk was justified because blacks and Hispanics are inherently destined to commit crimes, this goes well beyond your whitewashed point of view, you’re a fucking racist.
Georgia FedEx customer allegedly threatens to 'whoop' workers' 'black asses,' but workers are fired
A FedEx driver and his co-worker were fired Wednesday, then apparently offered other employment for the company after the FedEx driver posted video of a Georgia customer who allegedly cursed at and threatened the workers in a racist attack. The video shows a man The Atlanta Journal-Constitution identifies as Felinzay Lundy defending himself to the customer, who is recording with a phone. “You didn’t have to come out here cussing me like that. I ain’t no little boy. I’ll wait ‘til the police come,” Lundy said in the video.
Antonio Braswell, the driver, who isn’t in the video, said he waited for police to arrive and learned from the customer's exchange with authorities that the customer thought they were going to break into his house while his wife was there.
“I’m reposting this video because people like him doesn’t matter white or any race should never disrespect essential workers putting their lives in jeopardy especially with this covid-19,” Braswell said in the tweet.
He also said FedEx had fired him and Lundy, but late Wednesday the company tweeted this message:
“We are aware of the incident in GA that led to the release of two drivers employed by a service provider. We're offering employment while investigating to ensure an appropriate outcome. We take seriously allegations of discrimination, retaliation, or improper employment actions.”
"All we did was deliver his package, he was in the house at the time. It was a quick stop and as soon as we were leaving he ran out his house cursing and threatening us. While we were looking confused we just apologized for being on his yard but he keep going on then kept saying he would whoop our black asses and then he told his wife to call the cops,” Braswell said according to a GoFundMe page for the workers. “That’s when he pulled out his phone playing victim and that's when I recorded. Idk what the police did but I posted this video because we go through racism everyday on that route in Leesburg but he was the first one to actually come up and actually threaten us."
Video of the incident has attracted 6.5 million views, and the GoFundMe page had raised $69,229 of a $75,000 goal by Thursday afternoon.
They were rehired after the backlash. I'd tell FedEx to fuck off.
Just so I understand, the racist asshole said the delivery guy looked like he was going to break into the house?
Yuuup, especially after their GoFundMe is doing well.
I think so, or perhaps a neighbor's house. I did like the ideal of that little white guy trying whip the FedEx guy
Hammer-wielding woman arrested after going on racist tirade, couple says
Told to go back to their country
HOUSTON – A couple visiting Houston from New Orleans say they were confronted by a woman with a hammer because she apparently mistook them as being Mexican citizens.
Arturo Cordovez and his wife, Dr. Lia Franco, are natives of Ecuador who currently live in New Orleans where Lia is finishing her medical residency. In the last few months, Dr. Franco has been treating COVID-19 patients day after day. To decompress, the couple decided to spend the weekend in Houston over the Memorial Day holiday to unwind.
Sunday afternoon, they were looking for a restaurant near South Shepherd and Westheimer roads in southwest Houston, when they noticed a woman following in a car behind them.
“So we stopped a little bit on the side and she was still there," Dr. Franco said
“She stopped behind us,” Arturo Cordovez said. “After that she started showing a hammer through the mirror. She was shaking her arm ... and cursing at us I think. I was thinking what did I do?”
The couple called 911 and turned into a gas station where the woman continued to follow them.
Dr. Franco said that’s when the woman pulled beside them and started screaming.
“And we go what do you want?” Dr. Franco said. "And she said screamed ‘You Mexicans, get out of my F**ing country. Go back to your F**ing country.’”
The woman got out of her car, with a hammer and seemed to be threatening them with it. Before the situation escalated further, the police arrived and took her into custody.
Police identify her as 60-year-old Constance Lynn Bono.
She was arrested Sunday and remains in jail as of Tuesday. So far, investigators haven’t been able to say what sparked the incident.
For Dr. Franco and her husband, their first trip to Houston was surprising and scary.
“I think she needs help, she needs treatment, but that doesn’t justify the fact she needs to follow the laws of her country," Dr. Franco said. “If she broke the laws here, she needs to pay for what she did. But for me as a physician, I think the most important thing is she needs treatment, she needs help.”
Bono is charged with aggravated assault with a deadly weapon, a second-degree felony with a punishment range of up to 20 years in prison. But if prosecutors believe racism was the motive, the charge could be enhanced to a first-degree felony, with a punishment range of up to life in prison.
The case is expected to be referred to a grand jury.
but, so not racist

I'm not stupid enough to get married. What are you nuts?
Black teen skips remote learning like many other students. Only, she's sent to juvenile detention
A 15-year-old Black girl was sent to juvenile detention for more than a month during the deadly COVID-19 pandemic for failing to complete remote schoolwork even after the teen’s teacher said she was “not out of alignment” with most of the teacher’s other students. The teen, identified in a ProPublica Illinois article as Grace, was sent to suburban Detroit to stay at the Oakland County Children’s Village in mid-June, the journalism nonprofit reported.
Judge Mary Ellen Brennan of the Oakland County Family Court Division ruled that Grace was “guilty on failure to submit to any schoolwork and getting up for school.” Brennan also called Grace a “threat to (the) community” after she reportedly violated probation by not completing the schoolwork. Grace was originally charged with assault and theft. “She hasn’t fulfilled the expectation with regard to school performance,” Brennan said at a sentencing hearing. “I told her she was on thin ice and I told her that I was going to hold her to the letter, to the order, of the probation.”
Grace, who lives in a predominantly white community, was ordered to check in with a caseworker regularly, receive counseling, wear a GPS tether, and complete all schoolwork after an incident with her mother, Charisse, led someone to call 911 on Nov. 6, 2019. Grace pulled her mother’s hair and bit her finger when the woman didn’t allow the child to go to her friend’s house, according to a police report ProPublica obtained. The person who called 911 had heard Charisse crying, “Help me!” from the car the incident unfolded inside. In the incident, Grace was arrested but later released to a family friend.
It wasn’t until weeks after the incident when she was charged with larceny that she was made to appear in court virtually on April 21. “After I was caught, I felt instant remorse and guilt. I wanted to take back everything I had done,” Grace had written in a statement to police. She made a similar plea to Brennan. “My mom and I do get into a lot of arguments, but with each one, I learn something and try to analyze why it happened,” Grace reportedly said. “My mom and I are working each day to better ourselves and our relationship, and I think that the removal from my home would be an intrusion on our progress.”
Brennan spared the teen from juvenile detention but also berated her. “Most people go through their entire youth without having the cops have to come to their house because they can’t get themselves together,” the judge said. She added after detailing the conditions of Grace’s probation that she hopes the teen “upholds her end of the bargain,” ProPublica Illinois reported.
Initially, she did. But when Grace’s school hastily switched to remote learning, as many did at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, Grace—who has ADHD—had a hard time focusing, according to records ProPublica obtained. Charisse confided in caseworker Rachel Giroux that Grace had been staying up late and sleeping in, and Giroux told the mother she "needs time to adjust to this new normal of being on probation and doing work from home." Still, when Charisse told the caseworker Grace had fallen asleep after one of their check-ins five days later, the woman filed a notice of probation violation and claimed in case notes that Grace “clearly doesn’t want to abide by the rules in the community." Giroux didn’t return a request for comment from ProPublica.
Katherine Tarpeh, Grace’s teacher, told Giroux that Grace was not responding abnormally. “Let me be clear that this is no one’s fault because we did not see this unprecedented global pandemic coming,” the educator wrote in an email ProPublica Illinois obtained. Grace “has a strong desire to do well” and “is trying to get to the other side of a steep learning curve mountain,” Tarpeh said.
Jason Smith, a policy director at the Michigan Center for Youth Justice, told ProPublica Illinois that “kids of color are disproportionately involved and impacted by the system across the board … They are more likely to be arrested, less likely to be offered any kind of diversion, more likely to be removed out of the home and placed in some sort of confinement situation,” Smith said.
A pandemic affecting more than 177,195 people in Michigan alone has been no equalizer. Black Michigan residents represent 40% of the state's COVID-19 deaths but only about 14% of the population, according to the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services.
“Who can even be a good student right now?” asked Ricky Watson Jr., executive director of the National Juvenile Justice Network.
“Unless there is an urgent need, I don’t understand why you would be sending a kid to any facility right now and taking them away from their families with all that we are dealing with right now,” Watson told ProPublica Illinois.
Nah shitty judge.
15 year old assaults her mother in public and gets off easy with doing good in school being one of the requirements from the judge...... kid doesn't do good in school
Judge gets mad
What does this have to do with race?
