Big business, the police and "rich people'" are the definition of power. The Tea Party was backed heavily by the Koch Brothers who may very well be the most powerful people in the country.

Rich, white, men run America.

If you don't believe that Christianity is one of the most powerful interests groups in the country I don't know what to tell you.

Let be very clear and simple. Do you think calling Obama a "gay Muslim" is some kind of racism? If not, then what is it?


Well, if you believe it to be the truth, it's neither racist, bigoted, nor homophobic, it's just the truth.

Everyone gets it, except you.

You walked on the backs of gay Muslims to try to win a partisan political argument. You didn't really do anything but throw out a crass, awful statement and then pat yourself on the back for exploiting them to your own partisan benefit.

We get it.

I figured it out a long way back. You are using tired lame argument that liberals are intolerant because you are just mindlessly flipping the argument.

The thing about sadists is they don't know they are sadists and they expect everyone to be masochists.

Not mindlessly. You are doing nothing but tossing out other people's actual hurt/injustice to try to make you (a non-gay non-Muslim) look like you care about them....and try to make conservatives look terrible.

You have yet to tell anyone what you have done in your life to show some compassion and make the lives of gay Muslims better.

Or defend Alvin, for that matter.

All talk, no walk.

Hey whatever. If you can't see "put a chain on your ape" had nothing to do our business then that's your problem right there!


I never took it as racist.. because I didn't assimilate the ape with being black or having slave chains.

I just read it as " keep your dog back" kinda thing.. if they had had a confrontation and your employee flexed a little too much.

I didn't see the black reference because my mind doesn't go there 😕

I'm sorry, but that's horrible. Ill assume (dangerous I know) that they came through your door because they were invited in, otherwise its a crime and you responding with a wedgie is questionable, I'd recommend deadly force in a forced entry scenario. But I digress, if you would invite someone in and then assault them simply because they dress differently is reprehensible.

He can't be gay because he has children. People who are gay are not sexually excited by the opposite sex. He may be a bisexual but he's not gay.

Now he's not a Muslim if he regular attends a Christian church and does not practice anything that has to do with being a Muslim.

Logically, it could be the case the he's really is a gay Muslim. But since it is not factually true and is often a criticism made in a derogatory manner, there is only one conclusion. You many act innocent about the conclusion be it still smells like racism.

I'm sorry, nobody refers to a black person as an "ape". It's like using the N word. You may act innocent about it. But it sure smells like racism no matter how you rationalize it with words.

ANNNNNND....you did not a thing to stand up for Alvin according to your own story.

Nada. You gave the guy a f*cking escort to his vehicle!

Then you used poor Alvin's story to try to win a debate on ATS. That is called EXPLOITATION.

There's your problem right there!!! I was using it as an example. Your examples are just things I have said.

You really have nothing meaningful to say.

Ah, ok.

You can stereotype people and put horrible words in their mouths that they never said...but when you actually say it...well...

You just have all the excuses why it's ok.

Got it.

Moving on.

Well, it would only be exploitation if it were effective in convincing you of anything I was saying.

As soon as the customer referred to Alvin as an "ape" the conversation stopped being about business. That is my point. I would never use the word "ape" in referring to a black person. Would you? Why is it that you do not see using the word "ape" in that sentence and in that particular way is not a good thing to do? I guarantee if you I told Alvin what the guy said he would have pummeled the guy the next time he saw him in town.

You simply must not understand what I was implying when I explained or you are deliberately trying to confuse me ?

Despite being confused I haven't lost my tolerance 😏

I guess I do not understand how the conversation switches to be about me. I think anyone who uses the word "ape" to refer to black guy in that way is just wrong. Do you agree?

Good on you to not stand up for him and tell him what happened and hypothesize that if he did know, he would have stood up for himself if he ever saw the guy because YOU DIDN'T. *heavy snark*

Geez.

You tried to exploit Alvin. I called you out on it.

ETA: And I would have called the guy a d*ckhead and told him to never set foot in my business again. You didn't do that though.

Why would you attribute base motives to my intentions. Isn't that exactly what you are accusing me of?

That is totally preposterous. My grandfather was gay, yet he had children with my grandmother. He assumed the role of a straight man to avoid the blowback, but he was definitely gay, not bisexual. And I'm sure a politician could assume the role of a Christian, because they know they couldn't be President as a Muslim at this point in history. As the old saying goes, you can't judge a book by it's cover.
