Whats amazing is when i was in school i had a professor tell us (this was 15 years ago) that there are 6 stages to every empire or country that they go through before they collaps. The usa is in numver 5 moving to 6. At 6 collaps is inevitable. Then warned that the usa has about 40 more years before we go the way of rome. We all dismissed him as fear mongering but the guy was right.
Rome the last few centuries just before its fall was just like how the united states is now. Too much entitlement and narcissistic fervor lead to an uneducated, weak and lazy population ripe for the sacking.
The infrastructure was gone evident in the later generations of roman engineers and builders works which were subpar and below the basic standards or roman engineering just 200 years before. The roman engineers literally didnt know how to build nor repair even the simplest structures to the standard and quality their own forefathers could and did. They were that under educated.
America is in the same death throws now. Time to start considering moving on. And our latest generation is garbage just like the final generations of romans. And due to them the nation will fall if the course is not corrected immediatly.

Ugh, this is a joke, right? They haven't really taken any hostages, have they?
Day of Absence
On Day of Absence, members of the Evergreen community have choices about how and where to participate.
Off campus, at a community venue, we host a full-day program focusing on allyship and anti-racism work from a majority culture or white perspective.
At the same time, we offer a full-day, on-campus educational and social program designed to address issues from the perspective of people of color.
Because of the need for a dedicated space to explore issues of diversity within each of these two perspectives, each program has been designed with a specific community-building objective in mind. And because many of us are mixed, and may not wholly identify ourselves with one community or the other, we invite each person to attend the program of their choice, wherever they feel most comfortable.

I don't know what exactly is going on down at Evergreen State College but so far I'm not surprised. After all it is Evergreen State College, for those that have went there or know someone who went there understands what that means. It is a different type of college.

And further, where are the town police? If the campus police are being hand tied, then get the real cops to come in and lay waste to this nonsense.

Thank you underwerks for bringing a little sanity back to ATS.
"Sanity" - justifying racism and hatred towards whites.
