You have officially exhausted both my knowledge of Gaelic and Thin Lizzy at the same time.

Bruh. I’m LDS. I teach Elders Quorum.
Yep. I love going further down the valley. My wifr and I get looks. Stares. Glares, really.
Non native salt lake resident here. Everything you just described is 100% true of downtown salt lake. Diverse, accepting, and even somewhat liberal. You guy 5 miles in any direction and it’s 96% white, 75% mormon, and not at all accepting of anyone who isn’t. It’s a population that EXEMPLIFIES passive aggression until…
Lots of Jazz fans come up from Utah County and the south Salt Lake Valley, and there is no fucking shortage of horrific racism down there. Many of them will give latinos a pass on the theory that some of them are Mormon converts, but black folks are not tolerated.
What’s with Jazz fans and Russ? Is it just because they’re in the same division?
THIS! Visited my brother in December in SLC, and it was punishing. We went up into the mountains around park city and all of a sudden you can breathe again. Then you look back and realize it was actually a sunny day and that was just smog blotting out the sun. Add in a dozen refineries and an entire populace driving…
Utah can disappear into a sinkhole for all i care. Its the Alabama of the west. (my cousin’s husband was a cop there until he was outed as gay, was excommunicated by the mormon church, was fired as a police officer the same week - for being gay, and then was literally told to leave the state by his entire community.)
I lived there seven years, in between stints in the Midwest, so I feel like I know racism when I see it. You’re not wrong about Utah, but I also found it to be much more prevalent toward other minority populations, such as hispanic and pacific islanders, simply because there are so few black people there. For example,…
Yup. Truly beautiful. And the girls for the most part are waaaay hotter than you’d expect. The grandmothers all look like they came from a Duncan Hines 50’s ad. And the streets are all wack with numbers in like every street name. Still between that and Colorado those places are beautiful.
Her statement basically starts off
Most of Utah is absolutely gorgeous to behold, if you’re into that outdoorsy kind of shit. On the other hand (and possibly inversely proportional to), the neo-natives can be some of the most judgemental, insular isolationists you’ll ever meet. As far as the NBA goes, the most relevant number is the state’s almost…
Didn’t these guys get forced out of Missouri because they were such assholes?
It is absolutely an abomination of a house. This house is damn near everything wrong with America wrapped into one parody of a building.
This is making me wonder if i should replace the WRX wheels...
Pretty sure DMB stickers are a factory option for Subarus.
