I understood that reference.

Maybe people should be forced to read this in school, like I was


I'm not certain I've ever read that. I'll have to hunt it down.

Small Georgia town removes job applicant from consideration because he was black.

So when the small town recently narrowed its search for a city administrator down to four potential employees, the Atlanta Journal-Constitution reports that one candidate was specifically excluded by the mayor’s office “because he is black, and the city isn’t ready for this.”

Mayor Theresa Kenerly reportedly told a member of the city council that she removed Keith Henry, a black man, for consideration for the job. But when Kenerly was asked about the allegations, she stated that she “can’t say I said it or not said it,” adding that she could not comment on things that happened in executive sessions.


And a town councilperson helpfully added:
I’m a Christian and my Christian beliefs are you don’t do interracial marriage. That’s the way I was brought up and that’s the way I believe...I have black friends, I hired black people. But when it comes to all this stuff you see on TV, when you see blacks and whites together, it makes my blood boil because that’s just not the way a Christian is supposed to live.

The fuck?

The fuck indeed.

I guess now I need to ask if there are passages in the Bible about races?

I googled it. Wikipedia tells me there are pieces about inter-religion marriage that are spoken against in the bible. But some people interpret them as inter-racial marriages being spoken poorly against.

Also, something about Moses marrying a black woman, his sister being racist, and God judging her. I dunno.

Meek Mill claims Las Vegas is racist.

Casino doesn't want a noted criminal inside. Black person doesn't get what they want so they scream "racism". How unusual...

Despite the article pointing out the videos don't mention the capacity issue, the Cosmo can certainly prove it was an issue. The fire department had been there earlier in the day for that exact reason.

Why wouldn't they want him to eat there? Because he has already shown up and tried to get entry after being told twice earlier that he wouldn't be able to do so. Best to get him off the grounds because he clearly is going to keep trying to gain entry.

As for "not wanting too many black people in one place", that's complete horseshit. The fact that they're even holding the event at the Cosmo is proof of that.

Although, you want some truth? I don't think I'd want too many of anyone partying in one place. Those groups tend to get a feeling of authority like they can do anything they want. That's how riots start. That's how property gets damaged. That's how you drive away other customers.

Vegas went out of their way in years past to ensure that bike gangs stayed small and separated. They've said "no thanks" to the juggalos because of all the damage they did to previous hotels.

So fuck you Meek Mill. Racism will never die as long as people like you are there to fan the flames.

Hmm. They sure don't mind 53,000 cloud engineers gathering together :P

Which really is amazing. Remember Chris Rock's bit about how cloud engineers ruin everything?

Camp guard pulls gun on black couple and gets fired.

The best part of this story is that her own husband, who is also a guard there, contradicted her story.

Empire creator adamant that Smollett has been erased from the show and will not return.

How fucked up is it when Hollywood has higher morals and standards than the DA in Chicago?

Riot in Memphis after cops fatally kill man.

Marshals were trying to stop the man, who was wanted on multiple warrants, outside a home as the man was getting into a vehicle, the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation said.
The man "reportedly rammed his vehicle into the officers' vehicles multiple times before exiting with a weapon," the bureau said. "The officers fired striking and killing the individual. No officers were injured."


I guarantee you this is not the story that made the rounds in the crowd.

"Don't judge Frayser without asking a community how it feels to mourn their youth over and over again," the commissioner tweeted.


Racism aside, as that's out of their control, but maybe if the community is sick and tired of mourning their youth they should change the culture? Racism isn't responsible for the "gangster's life" being celebrated in said communities via movies, music, etc. Racism isn't responsible for how street cred is earned. Racism isn't forcing kids into gangs. Racism didn't earn this guy several outstanding warrants and then force him to use his car as a battering ram.

Webber "reportedly rammed his vehicle into the officers' vehicles multiple times before exiting with a weapon," the bureau said. "The officers fired striking and killing the individual. No officers were injured."

Seriously, the answer to this is STOP DOING STUPID THINGS.

I'm not sure they'd be able to tell Frayser had a riot in it.
