Taze Him Bro!


Okay, this demagogue has been all over the MSM, claiming how he was a victim of police brutality, never failing to mention that his child and pregnant wife were in the car even though that is largely irrelevant.

Let me run through the situation, the cop came up to the window, did the license and registration bit, and then wrote him a ticket. Tough Guy here refused to sign it, even though signing a traffic ticket is not an admission of guilt. Any hackjob who failed Driving School can probably tell you that.

I don’t know about Utah, but I’m pretty sure that in Maryland it is illegal to refuse to sign a traffic ticket. If that’s the case in Utah, then Tough Guy broke the law. The cop asks him to step out of the car, turn around, and place his hands behind his head.

Tough Guy walks up and down the shoulder, points at another officer off screen, and completely disregards on-screen cop’s orders. He mocks the officer, while the taser is pointed at him, twice saying, “What the heck’s wrong with you?” Tough Guy was on his way back to his car to do who knows what: drive away, run over the cop, get a gun-fathers with families in their cars have done crazier things, watch one of those John Walsh shows some time.

The point is, though he may have been a little quick in getting him, I see no misconduct on the officer’s part (speaking strictly about the tasering part). Tough Guy was being a disrespectful, irresponsible, and to a certain extent threatening, dick. He disregarded a reasonable request in signing the ticket, and completely ignored a demand, with a weapon pointed at him no less. I probably would have tazed him too.

I saw that fool on CNN a couple of weeks ago, claiming that he thought the officer was pointing a real gun at him. Hey Tough Guy, this is a service pistol:And this is a taser:Note the yellow tape, they do that for a reason.

Besides, if indeed irresponsible Tough Guy thought the officer was pointing a real gun at him, threatening to shoot him, why the hell did he continue to walk away, disobey orders, and mock the cop? He was asking to get shot!

Just because that “Don’t Taze Me Bro” idiot was improperly treated by campus police, all of a sudden you get enterprising jackasses from all across the U.S. claiming police brutality after they pose a threat and get brought down for it. Attention Tough Guy: you are not Rodney King, sit down and shut the hell up.

Simply put, Tough Guy was an asshole who refused repeated reasonable requests, disrespected the officers, and posed a threat by returning to his car to do or get something; the officer had no idea what Tough Guy was going to do, and he had already shown himself to be hostile by refusing those orders. Don’t feel sorry for this boob, he deserved every bit of it.

Nigga Please (Inhaling Edition)

Sometime last week Barack Obama was conversing with some high school students, and he told them the truth about his life, saying that he smoked weed and drank when he was their age. Mitt Romney came out late last week and said that ‘it’s sometimes best that we not be so open about our indiscretions’. CNN did a segment on whether or not it’s okay for presidential candidates to be “candid”.

Mitt, since when is honesty irresponsible you flip flopping fuck? What jackass can honestly say that with a straight face? I never considered voting for the man, his positions on many issues are backwards (for example, he said “[Guantanamo is] a symbol of American resolve”). But I want you to consider this yourself, especially if you were thinking of voting for this profound retard: Do you want to vote for a man who considers honesty to be irresponsible?

This is the problem with many-I could go out on a limb and say most-adults; they think we are idiots. They think that we’re incapable of thinking. We’re not going to buy some dreamland bubblegum storytime bullshit lie like “I grew up in the 1970s and never once tried drugs,” or, “I didn’t inhale.” Nigga-fucking-please, don’t play us like that. If you want the youth vote so bad why don’t you try not fucking lying to us, see how that works out you miserable fucking disappointment?


In Conclusion:

I believe I once said that Rudy Giuliani is the most unfit to be President. I was wrong. Lance Armstrong’s dead testicle would be a better Commander in Chief than Mitt Romney.

Yes, That is a Gun in His Face

Because I have nothing to post, other than a suspect from those Italian murders playing The “I Don’t Recall” Gonzo Card, it’s time for another round of Ask-The-Negro™.

Anybody have any burning questions? Topics of discussion? Buckets of KFC?

We Do Not Have Friends; We Have Interests

The above is a paraphrase of a quote by by former Secretary of State John Foster Dulles, who I learned about through a link by the venerable unokhan in the previous post. The quote is peculiar in that it pretty accurately defines U.S. foreign policy since the 1950s.

Friends can be honest with each other. They can call each other on their profound retardation, congratulate each other, be honest about their opinions of each other, and they do not hide much of anything from each other.

Take this for instance. Everyone’s heard of that 19 year old Saudi woman who was gang raped by 7 men, and the Saudi courts decided to give her 200 lashes with a whip and six months in prison. Apparently she broke some archaic sharia proclamation. Wasn’t the gang rape more than punishment enough for being in a car with a man unrelated to her?

Anyway, other countries and organizations, such as Canada and the Human Rights Watch have publicly decried the Saudi courts for their ruling and have called for King Abdullah to exonerate the woman. The Saudi royal family recently supported the court, saying ‘The law is the law’. The United States has remained noticeably quiet, dismissing any questions with, “This is a current court case in a sovereign country.”

Call it realpolitik, but the U.S. is in a position where it can not explicitly speak out against this. Saudi Arabia is a necessary ally of the United States, they do help a little against terrorism, and if we lost them, we would be nostalgic for $100/barrel oil. But the Saudis are not friends, they are just allies.

Bush knows this sentencing is outrageous. But he (or his advisers) know that if he comments on it, the Saudis could very well react negatively and make things a whole lot harder for the U.S. Just like with Pakistan, not speaking out against this clear injustice is very hypocritical of the federal government, but the consequences of the government living up to its rhetoric could be more dangerous.


In Conclusion:

Two kids who go to RM apparently died in a car crash Monday night, and the driver, who survived, is in my 7th period class. Of course I feel bad for their families, but this would be more of a tragedy if he wasn’t speeding (or so I heard) and if they were wearing their seatbelts (or so I heard).

Praise the Lord and Pass the Ammunition

Nothing quite like a Sunday morning gun show to get America charging through your veins.We walked in the building, and and before us there was a venerable sm rg sbord of knives, antique rifles, revolvers, pistols, shotguns, submachine guns, assault weapons, hunting rifles, and even a couple of light machine guns.

Before anyone asks, yes, the crowd was very monochromatic. In addition, most of the security detail was black. There was also a curious number of vendors selling World War II memorabilia. There was a decent amount of American stuff-patches, insignia, buttons, helmets, and a surprising number of M1 Garand replicas.

But there was a lot, and I mean a lot, of Nazi stuff. One table even had a vintage Hitler Youth uniform. Kind of contradictory, considering what those American soldiers they supposedly respect so much fought and died against is exactly what some of the vendors are seemingly idolizing.

Which beings me to my next point-the Klan. No, there weren’t any members of the brotherhood decked out in full Klan uniform, but there definitely were some of them there. It seemed to be the kinda short, really fat guys with scraggly beards that had Klansmen aura to them.

There were also a couple of twentysomething rednecks who probably think they’re David Duke but would shit their pants in Southeast D.C. Bunch of punks. The show was in Northern Virginia (the good part of Virginia) so Klan turnout was inherently kept to a minimum. I don’t think we would have gone if it was in Lynchburg.

We went up and down the rows, sort of looking at the merchandise. We came primarily to pick up one of two firearms; either a Remington 870 or a Mossberg 500, the former being surprisingly difficult to find. There were only three in the entire show. The 870 and the 500 are both excellent firearms, and they are also very comparable in terms of fire rate, ease of cleaning, reliability, etc. Really the decision to buy came down to a matter of taste.

Well, we were faced with the familiar dilemma of “If I buy one, I’m going to regret not buying the other.” So we picked up both.
We even almost left with a Romanian semi-auto AKM-47, but Maryland gun laws won’t let residents buy “assault weapons” out of state, even if the purchaser works for the state and has had countless background checks performed on her.

But all in all it was a good day. And on our way out, I saw this bumper sticker, and I just had to buy it:Maybe Northern Virginia isn’t so great after all.

Harry Cocker and the Philosopher’s Prick

I’ll bet you’re thinking to yourself, “Gee willickers, why is this picture on The Tome of Communism? Is Woozie in or out of the closet?” I assure you comrades, if there was any homosexuality to reveal, it would certainly not involve fantasies regarding Snape raping Harry.

So, the question remains-why is Harry Potter being assraped while wearing a Santa hat? As of a few months ago there’s been an influx of visitors being led here by…interesting search terms. I’ve kept a backlog of them, and since I’m not in the mood to post much less do my homework (we all have our days), I figured I’d release them today:

– gay drawing steven
– horny mickey mouse html
– big fat people fucking
– get my cock all the way in
– negro cock
– ass gaping guiness book
– harry potter naked pic santa
– sean michael 11 inch penis
– grandpaw sucking grandma clit
– bow wow gay dick

Not surprisingly, most of these search terms lead to The Aristocrats. There was a lot of sex going on there, though I don’t think much of it involved a pubescent wizard being played by a post-pubescent nude British actor in a Santa hat. But for the women and some men who are into that sort of thing, Daniel Radcliffe has been legal for some time now, so go and hit up the Google if you can’t afford tickets to Equus on Broadway.

Keeping in tune with homosexuality, here’s a video. Oh come on, it’s on YouTube, how explicit can it be?



In Conclusion:

I have to learn how to talk like the G-Man. Christmas is coming, and Dr. Freeman needs his gift…

Listen to Jimi Hendrix, who some say played the gay card to get out of the army.

Why My Vote Does Not Count

Contrary to the surface implications of the title, I believe that a person’s vote is arguably the most important part of any democracy, representative or otherwise. And though democratic government is fraught with problems, it is the best of a crappy bunch.

It is very difficult to watch/read the news without noticing the various 2008 Presidential Campaigns stopping in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, or South Carolina. This is, of course, because these states have their primaries before any other states in the union.

Sometimes I wish I lived in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, or South Carolina; we Marylanders don’t get any love from the campaigns. Honestly, I do not think any campaign has made a stop in my area since the election season kicked off sometime last year. It’s kind of disheartening.

Just as well I suppose, I can’t vote in primaries anyway. This time around I won’t be 18, and I am registering as an independent because, well, both parties royally suck and I do not want to be associated with either. Maryland has closed primaries, so only people registered in Party X can vote in Party X’s primaries.

However, after the primaries, maybe the Republican or Democratic nominee will swing by Rockville and try to pick up some votes. Whether or not I would vote for them, I would appreciate them taking the time to stop by. Of course they don’t though, because Maryland is reliably blue, through and through. The Democrat knows they have the state locked up, and the Republican rarely bothers to try and take it.

It’s like they don’t want my vote.

I often have a hard time identifying with other people’s struggles, but after some consideration I kind of know how Republicans in New York and Democrats in Texas feel. Not only in the general election do we not have a voice, but in the primary elections, all Americans not living in Iowa, New Hampshire, Nevada, or South Carolina are essentially voiceless, since all the other states tend to swing the way those go due to relentless media spinning. How democratic is that?

In the beginning of this post I said that democracy is the least crappy form of government yet practiced. Sure in regional elections I can claim that democracy is relatively excellent, but when it comes to nationwide elections, who am I to say? In that respect, I do not live in a democracy. My vote literally does not count, so why even bother? I can do better things with my time come November 6th.

Maybe a grossly undemocratic system is why voter turnout in the so-called “champion of democracy” is so low. Maybe some of us are tired of going to vote every 4 years, or watching those we know vote every 4 years, and witnessing it come to nothing at the end of the day. Just a hunch from the stifled minority.

Tom Tancredo Has a Daisy

I’m sure you all remember Colorado representative / Republican presidential hopeful Tom Tancredo. He’s the guy who recommended bombing Mecca to stop terrorist attacks. Well, Thomas is at it again. The Tancredo campaign put out a new 30 second TV ad, focusing on illegal immigration which is apparently the Colorado representative’s strong issue.

Before you watch the TV spot, please brace yourselves for insurmountable dumbassery.

Ready?

Okay, let’s go.

Apparently the bombing civilians proposition was not an isolated event of stupidity, Tom Tancredo really is profoundly retarded. I’d like to take this opportunity to explain exactly why Tom Tancredo is not fit for President, as if the bombing Mecca proposition wasn’t enough.

First off, 20 million illegal aliens didn’t come here solely to “tik ur jebs”. I never saw a guy named Chad doing landscaping or working in a maid service before. Second of all, “Islamic terrorists” do not freely roam U.S. soil. If they did, attacks would happen so often 9/11 would look like a mediocre birthday party compared to weekly car bombs across the nation.

Speaking of 9/11, bear in mind that the 19 hijackers entered the United States legally through Europe, with valid visas-not hopping a shoddy fence into Texas or just walking right into North Dakota. You have to see the fire in the theater before shouting “Fire!”

I know politics are dirty, but how dare this pesudo-human Tancredo imply that all the other Presidential candidates “refuse to defend our borders”. Though the nation is divided in how to solve the problem of broken borders, it’s pretty clear that we’re all unified in not wanting to be attacked again. Even lame ducks do not question the patriotism of their fellow Americans. The nerve of this idiot…

One final note, it is apparent that Tom Tancredo, and those on “Team Tancredo” do not read history books. In 1964, the Lyndon Johnson campaign put out an infamous ad featuring a little girl dubbed Daisy, and the ad suggested that Barry Goldwater, the Republican nominee, would start a nuclear war if elected. Even though the ad aired only once, Johnson was publicly flagellated for it.

You didn’t take my advice last time Tom, and I understand, I was kind of harsh. But seriously man, kill yourself. You are embarrassing us.

It Depends on What the Meaning of “Privacy” is

This is Dr. Donald Kerr, the director of the National Reconnaissance Office, one of the United States’ dozens of spy agencies.

He doesn’t look like anything special right? Just another suit, except he wasn’t quite prepared for his picture to be taken. If I can have a moment of your time, allow me to tell you why this man deserves his own pedestal to sit on, so children from around the world can marvel at his immense stupidity.

This week Congress has been reexamining the Foreign Intelligence Surveillance Act, which they hastily passed last summer so they could take a well deserved break from restoring America. Their passing of the legislation allowed the federal government to spy on conversations without warrants, so long as it was ‘reasonably believed’ that one end of the conversation was overseas.

Coming off the heels of our outstandingly competent legislative branch debating whether or not to close a loophole a toddler could pilot an aircraft carrier through, the good Dr. Kerr suggested that Americans should rethink their definition of privacy. The good Dr. Kerr claimed that Americans should entrust the government and businesses with proper safeguarding of people’s private communications and financial information.

Um, excuse me, Dr. Kerr? Yes, I have a question.

What the fuck is your problem?

Regardless of your political leanings, do any of you out there trust the White House, which has trampled the Constitution, and the Congress which has repeatedly failed to stop it, with all your financial data and personal communications? Who does Dr. Kerr think he’s playing? The people who are more interested in the Bible inspiring Marie Osmond to return to “Dancing With the Stars” than they are with the future of their country? Is it any wonder why Dr. Kerr’s irresponsible comments were not headline news?

I’ve observed that many critics of the direction this country is going in have leveled criticism solely at the feet of the White house, and as of late, Congress. Oh no, it is the fault of the American people too. They’re distracted by so much stupid shit (for lack of better words) on television, like “A Shot at Love with Tila Tequila” to give a damn about where this country is headed, and by extension where they are headed.

Don’t get me wrong, there’s nothing wrong with a little mind-rotting garbage every now and then, but not all the time. Read the paper, watch the news, get informed. Please!

The Aristocrats Strike Back

A long time ago I wrote a…colorful Aristocrats joke. And I have to say it was a hell of a lot of fun to write. Basically, the premise is a family act goes to a talent agency, and the talent agent asks to see their act.

The description of the act is supposed to be exceptionally depraved and ideally will touch on many gross things and taboos,€ like an incestuous Pope for example. Now, since I am too tired to type up a decent post tonight, I figured we would do another joke tonight. Yes, we. You know the deal, I start it, and it continues in the comments eternally.

“On a cold and gray Chicago morning, a family visited a talent agency, hoping to get their big break. The talent agent is impressed with the look of the family, which contains a mom, dad, two brothers, two sister, four grandparents, a cat, and a Burmese python. The talent agent asks to see the family’s act, and they happily oblige…

Those who do not Learn from History…

In the very early days of the Vietnam War, the president of South Vietnam was Ngo Dinh Diem, and his brother Ngo Dinh Nhu was in charge of the secret police. Nhu terrorized the Vietnamese people, and Diem fully supported his brother. Well, the South Vietnamese people were reaching their breaking point, and the U.S. could no longer afford to support the Diem government. On November 1st, 1963, Diem and his brother escaped to a rural town, where they were found and executed the next day.

Forty years later, Pakistani President/Army Commander Pervez Musharraf has declared a state of emergency, suspending the constitution and essentially making himself a dictator. The White House was extremely careful to respond, saying that they recommend Musharraf remove the Army uniform and hold “free” elections. Musharraf announced a general election will happen in January.

Though Musharraf is clearly a threat to democracy, imposing states of emergency for no real reason, the honest truth is that the U.S. can’t afford to lose control of the position. If even for a second the Pakistani government loses control of the country, Al-Qaida would have to be profoundly retarded to not take advantage and sandwich Afghanistan between U.S. enemies.

Afghanistan is the only middle east endeavor that is going remotely well for the United States. For comparison, nearly 4,000 U.S. troops have dies in Iraq since 2003. Roughly 450 U.S. troops have died in Afghanistan since 2001. If Pakistan fell to Al-Qaida, or just collapsed into confusion, never mind the situation with the nuclear weapons-a surrounded Afghanistan could essentially turn it into a second Iraq.

Is America’s active support of Musharraf democratic? Absolutely not. Is the hypocrisy blatant and somewhat embarrassing? Definitely. Regardless, the U.S. has to play a very careful balancing act here; they have to support Musharraf while at the same time appeasing the understandably agitated Pakistani people. Simply put, America can not afford a Pakistani revolution, and removing Musharraf would be extremely dangerous.

The administrations following Diem were obvious and ineffective puppets, helping lead to the famous “never fired, only dropped once” ARVN rifles and the vulnerability of South Vietnam after U.S. forces officially left Southeast Asia. The removal of Musharraf is something too unstable to consider doing since the country could very easily fall to Al-Qaida in the north, so it is really in the interests of all parties that he get rid of this ridiculous state of emergency, free the imprisoned people, put the judges back on the bench, and win the people’s trust back.

A Modest Question

Beginning some time last school year and continuing this year, a friend and I went around Richard Montgomery asking fellow guys a certain question recently labeled The Question, like an episode of Seinfeld. The Question is a peculiar one and a personal one. Call it what you will-intellectual curiosity, size insecurity, sexual security, repressed homosexuality-The Question involves length and, as of today, girth. If you still can’t figure it out you don’t deserve to know.

Editor’s Note: Here comes the TMI paragraph.

Length data (in inches) ranges from 4 to 8 and we ask all the juniors and seniors we know, and we may stop the random underclassman and freak him out. I won’t put my personal numbers up because I don’t want to feed the pedophiles (I’m 17, so technically they’d be ephebophiles) on the internets, but lets just say I feel pretty good about myself.

TMI paragraph over, continue reading.

I don’t know what’s more surprising-the number of guys who outright refuse to answer or the number of guys who unabashedly answer. Anyway, I just thought I’d share that with everybody. Asking people that question, and sucking jerking getting answers from those who refuse, can be quite a bit of fun. We’ve got a particularly hard tough case facing us now. Mark my words, we will break him. Just like everyone else.

Try The Question at your school or office today!
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I was in a computer lab at lunch with the group’s Token Jew (who answered the The Question, by the way) when I was browsing CNN, looking for a post for today. He asked “is this your future self?” and pointed to this guy:I then responded, “is this your future self?” and pointed to these people:Many lulz ensued. He refused to give me a high five; I wonder why?

Smokey the Bear

At RM, the smoker’s corner perpetually smells like cigarettes, whether or not anyone is actually smoking at the time.

Apparently the ground is so saturated with cigarette butts that the odor can not escape the vicinity of the benches behind the school. And it’s not like they smoke in an enclosed area, this is out in the open.

Does anyone else have a permanently toxic area at school/work?

Baby Got Book

That is the title of a popular video on GodTube, and as you can guess it is a rewrite of Sir Mix-a-Lot’s “Baby Got Back”, except it’s about the Bible.

The video is by the Momentum Christian Church, which is “a church for people who hate going to church.” Though I am not a member of their target audience, people in their 20s and early 30s, I have to say that their efforts are pathetic.

Maybe it’s because I’m not in touch with the average Momentum Churchgoer who is probably white, but if this Dan Smith fool went to the hood, I bet you his ass would be dead within one minute. “Hey, what’s going on ‘homies’? Have you heard the word of Christ brah? He was a hardcore gangster, like Tupac. For shizzle!” Bang, somebody done shot a white man, and everyone leaves a note saying:

We ain’t seen nothin’.
-Signed, Everybody

Now, there are just some things white people can’t do without being shot. Saying “nigger” in public is one of them, as Dog the Bounty Hunter recently reminded us all. Another is saying that they’re “down” with black people. Finally, there’s rapping.

I’m sorry, but throughout the history or rap (and I’ll even give you hip-hop, I’m that generous) white people have given us three acts-Vanilla Ice, House of Pain, and Eminem. Concerning him, Eminem’s blackness is under review-there must be some in him considering White America’s previous attempts. The Beastie Boys don’t count either, they unintentionally precluded the abortions of music genres known as nu metal and rapcore. Anything awesome they did was negated by that.

Here, watch a white man rap about Jesus and prove me wrong:

Minitrue

George Orwell’s 1984 is probably my all-time favorite book, and I’m quite disappointed we did not read it in school. It is amazing how Orwell manages to keep things relevant. He writes about the Ingsoc Movement in such a way that no matter the real world situation, an Orwellian world may seem unlikely, but never seems impossible.

Of all the things in the novel-perpetual war, widespread starvation, omnipresent police, general misery-the one thing about 1984 that genuinely scared me was the ease with which the Ministry of Truth indoctrinated each individual person in Oceania. I can’t imagine some faceless group controlling my every thought. Once you have lost free thought, everything else comes tumbling down.

Today I saw something on CNN about conservatives accusing “Nick News” indoctrinating children with liberal views because of a recent episode on torture. The conservatives complained that they often get accused of brainwashing their children, but liberals rarely do. Which is true, but this is the proverbial pot and kettle situation.

I am disgusted with you republican and democratic parents out there who teach your kids, at any age, to be political carbon copies of you. Politics are deceitful, dirty, divisive, shameful, confusing-in short, politics suck. How dare you fuck up your son or daughter’s childhood with politics? You should be ashamed of yourselves for raising your kids from the womb to be lockstep democrats or republicans. You’re making them into soulless, slogan-spouting machines by reading them filth like “Why Mommy is a Democrat” and “Help! Mom! There are Liberals Under my Bed!” (scene left).

Indoctrination, especially of innocent children, is one of the few things I simply can not stand. They are children. Let them be children. And when they grow older let them become adults who make up their own minds. The adjective “Orwellian” represents so much more than totalitarianism.

Word Of The Day

Sharptonigga
-Noun
Etymology: Portmanteau of the name of prominent civil rights leader Reverend Al Sharpton and the slang “nigga”

1. A person of color, usually black, who looks for racism in every situation and never pauses to think of other explanations for said situations.

The reason I bring this up is because of the recent flap regarding Dick Cheney’s hunting trip. No, no, he didn’t shoot anyone in the face this time. But if you ask the good Reverend, Dick Cheney figuratively shot all of black America in the face.

On the grounds of the members-only Clove Valley Rod & Gun Club in upstate New York photographers from the press spotted a small Confederate flag hanging in a garage.
Al Sharpton claims this is evidence of racism and that Cheney must “leave immediately, denounce the club and apologize for going to a club that represents lynching, hate and murder to black people.”

Let’s examine the circumstances. Has Dick Cheney ever done or said anything racist in the open? No. Are the odds good that a hunting club in upstate New York would be run by Klansmen? No. And besides, the flag was put up in a dark corner of a small garage-not on top of a 200 foot tall flagpole, or gloriously hanging over the freshly mounted head of Little Black Sambo.

You know Al, there’s this little thing called southern pride. I personally don’t get it-the South is the only place in the world where they re-enact battles from a war they lost-but I’m not going to persecute them for loving their homeland. Yes, I know, it’s shocking-there are other uses for the Confederate flag besides white supremacy.

Wait, before your respond Al, let me guess what you’re going to say. After saying I’m talking over you when in actuality you interrupted me you will say “The recent events in Jena, Louisiana have sparked a wave of naked hatred in America,” or something like that.

Almost valid point. No one can argue with the fact that there has been a recent in apparent racist incidents. But let’s be real about this-does it make sense for an unknown white kid who got his ass beaten by a couple black kids to be a martyr for the white supremacist cause, inspiring closet racists to come out all over the country?

The justice rallies in Jena and elsewhere make more sense when it comes to bring out the Klansmen, but massive rallies still do not explain the nooses in such places as Columbia University, or the Confederate flag at the New York hunting club-places where fervent, bare racism is not bred. There was no wave of nooses preceding, during, and following the Million Man March.

Rather, this is simply a wave of copycat idiocy-here and there, some guys thought it would be funny to put a noose up in a tree, not understanding the gruesome implications of the noose. Like so many other problems plaguing America, education is the answer. If we teach those who don’t know what a noose implies, then I can guarantee that the number of noose incidents will drop.

Are some things we see in the world racist? Definitely. But the way some people speak, it makes it sound like everyone who says/does something that can be easily misconstrued is a racist, end of discussion. This touches on another issue with we minorities, but I’ll leave that for another day.

Sharptoniggas of the world, not everything is motivated by racism.
