Right. I’m not sure why the response was to attack the drumming native veteran.
No, the free pass is that the other people aren’t white, rich, and male. You can always do whatever you want to that kind of people.
Thank you for calling out those useless turds - I mean “chaperones”. This kind of behavior would have never flown when I was in school. If the chaperones had seen us gathering into a crowd and being that rowdy, they would have stepped in, told us to be quiet and stop interacting with the other groups, and had us…
Your point about the chaperones in my primary question. If any of this behavior had even started back when I was in high school, we would’ve been pulled from the group, lectured and likely stuck back on the bus to miss the rest of the trip. There is introducing students to politics, and then there yelling and acting…
I disagree with none of this.
A description of Phillips as “chanting” in this story has been changed to one of him “singing,” following this note from Dr. Adrienne Keene.
Doesn’t sound too different from how we usually reacted to the local white evangelical church in Knoxville when they used to harass us on campus. Eventually you figure out there’s no debating tactic when they’re convinced you’re going to hell, and why would you care about their opinions anyway?
They actually were frequent guests on those daytime talk shows in the ‘80s that relied on shocking guests. Think Sally Jesse, Maury or even Phil Donahue (not sure how old you are). I guess as Oprah moved to more spiritual stuff, having such guests on your talk show fell out of favor. But that was when i first heard of…
Man, I don’t even know. I don’t think race or religion is the main point of interest with them, it’s just the stuff they say. I liken it to Westboro Church. It doesn’t matter than they’re white, anyone showing up at a military funeral with a “God Hates Fags” sign is going to get attention.
There are so many parts to this video that everyone seems to see and miss at the same time. It’s like the fucking Zapruder of racism.
I’m trying and failing to imagine what it must be like to have this simplistic a view of elections.
They’ve been in the spotlight for a long time. They’re considered a hate group by the SPLC and are reportedly becoming “more militant.” They aren’t protected from the spotlight (there are articles about them based on this incident) but people don’t know what to make of them. It’s like coming across the Westboro Church…
...coming from a black dude; no its fucking not.
What you see here hinges on whether you believe that “Make America Great Again” is a dog whistle meant to unite racists, misogynists, and homophobes under one umbrella, or you’re delusional and don’t care about people who aren’t white men.
I’ve lived in NYC for 21 years, and been harassed on the street by the Black Israelites literally hundreds of times in that period. Weirdly, I never felt the urge to do anything other than walk away. Strange how easy that is.
You’re right, but they’ve been doing that stupid shit for ages and making no sense in the process. They’re koo koo. But I’m sure to the teens, they were a new sight.
I’ve never seen any pictures of her when she was young! She was stunning
yeah she comes across as someone whose bubble of privilege has never burst, and never will.
Hell, ask any WHITE Australian. Or the so called “boat people” which were an issue when I lived there in the John Howard era and still are in the fucking offshore prison camps era. You’re so right that it’s well known, and just wtf???? How did she MISS that?
