They were 14 to 18, not 5. You're overreaching. Your KKK reference doesn't make sense, and furthermore, blacks back then didn't drop down and cower and need coddling at the sound of "KKK" being uttered out of someones mouth. They were a whole hell of a lot stronger and their skin was a whole hell of a lot thicker back then than these prissies these days.


We're they even allowed to without given permission back then? When's back then or are you just winging it again?

They didn't have equal rights, couldn't use the same bathroom, marry a white person, eat in the same places, weren't allowed in white schools, etc. I mean I could go on, but hopefully you got the point. Hell, I read somewhere that blacks had to step off the sidewalk if a white person was passing. So I guess they may not have cowered as you say. They were forced to, which makes your point completely invalid.

So i construe this post as one of two ways:

- its pure hyperbole meant to paint this as something it isn't (as Wisconsin isn't the south)



My wife's entire family lives in rural Wisconsin and I have spent easily 2 months a year there annually for the past 30...slow down before you tell me about how Wisconsin is not the rural south...the second pic in my post with the boys is from a suburb of Chicago. Racism is racism...



- Its just more evidence that Obama has set race relations in the US back by at least a full generation


Yah...cuz having a black man as President was unacceptable to certain folks...

Blaming racism on Obama being president is right up there with blaming rape on women wearing skirts...BS...and ugly BS to boot.

I am not over-reaching...You are waving your ignorance flag...

Holy Sh*&...did you just say that minorities should learn to accept the racism of 50 years ago??????????

Ya...the good ole days when you could call a N* a N* in public and they would just accept it.

“There are grumblings in the community that this is not the first time Elkhorn High School has done this to a school of predominantly minority make up,” Bryan Bye, whose daughter is on Beloit’s soccer team, told the Daily News in an email. Tadlock said there had been chants for “build that wall” in the past, but not in reference to the GOP frontrunner’s plan to create a 1,000-mile wall along Mexico’s borders with the U.S. Usually, when fans chant “build that wall” at Elkhorn’s games, he said, it was about defending against penalty kicks — but that wasn’t the case on Thursday. “That’s not related to soccer at all, that was hurtful,” Tadlock said about the Trump wall chant.


Why did you not add this part?

Because they chanted "Trump!, Build that Wall"...and not during a Penalty kick...are you trying to obfuscate facts here?

There was no confusion by anyone about the intent of the chants...not to say you can't try to interject some confusion...dishonestly is the cousin of ignorance.

Well...he was given a wonderful opportunity to become a legend in our own time. People were so hopeful about what he could do, he was given a Nobel Prize. not for he DID, but for the HOPE of what he COULD do.

So he was tasked with (after volunteering to be the "uniter") uniting our nation. How did he unite us?

- came out as anything but our nations leader during the aftermath of Michael Brown. His public comments seem as likely as anything to have helped stoke that fire. They certainly didn't qwell it.

- When Henry Louis Gates was arrested, rather than inform himself he entered the fray of race discussions with, "The police acted stupidly"

- failed to prosecute obvious voter intimidation by the NBP party

- double speak runs rampant. On the one hand, he recognizes that race has been transcended to a point that a black man can be elected president. Then, when speaking to black children, states that he doesn't think its possible for black youths to transcend race in this country. (see link: www.essence.com...)

Is it "all his fault"? LOL, no. Obviously not. Has he even tried to do what he promised to get elected? I'd say that his own base has rejected that notion, saving me the effort.

Now, you can say im "blaming racism on Obama being president". But if you do, it will just show me that you don't understand what I am saying here.

Really? Did they? Is there a video? and what racial slur did the black child never hear?

This has been a LONG standing issue at this school and now, since TRUMP means racism it is interjected. In this day and age, where is the video? Where is it?




“It's embarrassing and shouldn't happen, and I'll make sure it doesn't happen again,” Tadlock said. Denu said he has had few such incidents in his seven years as a boys and girls soccer coach, and those were words said by players, which coaches addressed. - See more at: www.gazettextra.com...


It is an ongoing racial issue at the school for years. No it is about Donald Trump?

And as far as racism. Sorry, there is no racism in the US in 2016. Racism was 1950 not eating in the same store. Taking a piss in the same bathroom. Told you could not have a job because you were a 'coon'. That is what people lived through. GEtting their asses kicked because of color. But, the knockout game was just silly bored youth.

Now #Trump2016 is racist? WTF is wrong with people?

Racism is not an issue. The murder rate in Chicago is. The bleeding of our borders is. The build up in the South China sea. San Bernadino...

Racism is created in this day and age by racist people and ignorance passed down generations.

The issue is reverse racism.

Do you misconstrue just for the sake of arguing?

Read what was being said and asked. Your "holy crap" isn't even topical. Seriously.

Yeah everyone is allowed to be a victim except for the real victims the US taxpayer. Every time We complain We get called racists or bigots. If everybody was treated equally I don't think the wieners would like it to much.

What does that have to do with race?...sure it is "baiting"..but more so irrelevant to you failed claim...kind of disappointing from you Tex.



So he was tasked with (after volunteering to be the "uniter") uniting our nation. How did he unite us?


You are going full right-wing BS on me...Set the bar stupid high and then blame the black man for failing to unite...THIS country??? I am torn on whether I find the argument profoundly dumb or profoundly offensive...how about you let me know what you were aiming for?




- came out as anything but our nations leader during the aftermath of Michael Brown. His public comments seem as likely as anything to have helped stoke that fire. They certainly didn't qwell it.


"qwell"...you mean "dismiss"..right? That's the POTUS's job? to use the podium invalidate racial pain felt by minorities? What a wasted opportunity since his invalidating that pain would have been twice as dismissive from the lips of the first black President.

We certainly see the world differently Tex.




Now, you can say im "blaming racism on Obama being president". But if you do, it will just show me that you don't understand what I am saying here.


Oh I understand what you are saying Tex...that somehow he has been imperfect like the last (forever) Presidents...but since he's black..hell...why not make it a black thing..

Sure...please explain how this comment you defended comparing how minorities accept racism isn't racist BS 50 years ago or now..

blacks back then didn't drop down and cower and need coddling at the sound of "KKK" being uttered out of someones mouth. They were a whole hell of a lot stronger and their skin was a whole hell of a lot thicker back then than these prissies these days.

Sure.

I didn't defend the post. I was pointing out the lack of truth. If pointing out a lack of truth is defending a post, then im sorry. But, even if i hate the truth....the truth is all i care about. The user posted this: "When's back then or are you just winging it again?", and I just clarified because the answer to that was rather obvious.

Now, im not going to go any further on this You seem to be itching for a fight. Im happy to oblige...but PM me instead of dragging it here. Because explaining the obvious is dragging this off topic.
