It seems liberals cant win at anything anymore. Not even a simple coin toss. So it has to be racist.
Yep , you heard it right. That coin was racist. Disregarding the laws of probability . Probability is science so therefore should not be considered .
Ban coins



And in one misplaced post it become reb v's dem''s.

In minutes it will require a multi million dallor Senate inquiry.

Can we all just laugh at the extreme immaturity of the event and move on?

Look, seriously. I know the alt-right media machine is very proficient at churning out all of these 'XYZ Is Now Racist!' outrage stories, but they're absolute fabrications designed to distract you with simple outrage from the real issue.

Read the Chicago Tribune story, the story is actually about this angle of it:

"The coin toss is almost beside the point. That the vote was tied between a bronze medalist and a two-time gold medalist points to an outcome that also included intangibles — among them, likeability and popularit y. While a coin cannot be biased, people can — and often, the results of racial bias can sting with unfairness."

That's the issue here.

Absolutely not that the coin toss is 'racist'. Stop allowing complex issues to be boiled down to these simple emotional headlines by people who don't want us to think about the complex issues.



Schrodinger's Coin?

It's not racist until you lose?

He also threw in Black History month (in the USA) as a reason he should carry.

I kinda didn't want to believe this one but today, well anything is possible.

Yes you read the title correctly.
The coin toss,
The most innocent of decision makers.
The true 50/50 chance.
Rock, paper, scissors is the coin tosses lil bitch.

Yet now it's racist.
Well kinda.

There was a coin toss to decide which athlete would get to carry the American flag at the Olympic opening ceremony.
One, a black male speed skater.
One, a white female skier.
They agreed to a coin toss and the woman won.

"The skater, Shani Davis, said the coin toss was dishonorable"

...



I guess the pill would have been sweetened if the skier had been black, lesbian, transgender, and recently finished the 9th sex-reassignment operation (it's so hard to identify, these days).

It's almost impossible for anything and anyone to not be offensive these days.

So then, Kap being half white, does that mean Ole Barry isn't the first black president? Only half of the first black president?


Yes, he was the first mixed race president. That is pretty common knowledge.

I do not fail to see the irony in the situation.
Black American are upset about not carrying the flag at the Olympics that represents their country but at the same time support black athletes that refuse to stand and respect the flag during the national anthem.

You don't respect it but want to carry it....

My world just doesn't make sense anymore.


Ummmm what? Are you seriously putting all black people in the same box? You literally claimed all black americans are refusing to kneel but all black americans upset and want to carry the flag. You are generalizing.

Show me where the same black citizens are both supporting kneeling and not supporting the flag decision. Very ignorant on your part and an oxymoronic post.

"First mixed president"

I'm talking about half black and half white, not tiny percentages of African heritage that are claimed to be "mixed". Everybody is mixed in some way if you go back far enough in their lineage. If there was another half black / half white president, then please post the name. I've heard a lot of false claims like people accusing Abraham Lincoln of being black, but it ended up being complete speculation.

Harvey Dent would be enraged.

It's just a coin toss-people do it to decide who gets the last slice of pizza, who gets to ride shotgun, hell I flip a coin when I can't decide what to have for dinner.

If anything is racist, it's the coin.
