We’ve come to a point where people are outraged at makeup and face paint.


Especially without knowing anything more. College kid party! it is ok to be Jeffrey Dahmer if a school kid now days.
I love the movie Oh Brother, they have costumes of KKK make all kinds of old time jokes we all know would not be acceptable as serious reality but we don't mind if in the right context, like the fat ole white Gobner in the movie!

That may be true, but all we hear across media is coverage of racism or bigotry against certain minorities.

So no one has really been able to dispute the OP, and the proof that the people with power on the left that howl about racism apply it selectively, and will ignore or even embrace racism when it benefits them.

Whihc tells me that deep down, even the most ardent Democrat on ATS knows these people are full of it.

So may I suggest we constantly point that out when these people claim faux moral outrage on these issues, and no longer allow them to be an authority on issues of race that seek to use it to attack their ideological opponents.

Did you think they would give me a job, I mean like I was fine this morning until I turned technology on, as soon as I did everything I read was about being outraged at some talking head on the TV, I realized I was missing out so I got my big boy pants on and joined the outrage bandwagon.

So sport what about all the poor people that can't grow beards, here you are flaunting you growth in front of all these poor non beardos, I'm outraged how could knowingly do such a thing, what the hell man.

I think that most of the people who are most concerned with calling out racism are racist deep down inside.

100% they are! They're the ones who try to sell the notion that minorities can't hack it without the help of the white liberals. The deeper implications are that minorities are so inferior that they need a superior race to swoop in and provide special treatment and coddling.

At least the conservative mind is that of wanting every US citizen to thrive because that's good for all of us. One does that by being accountable for oneself, taking responsibility, buckling down and pushing through the rough patches. One must realize that we live in a real world.

People like you often equate your perceived bias towards conservatives VS the systemic racism felt by African Americans. They’re not even close to comparable. You don’t understand why people can get so emotional about this. Then you’ve prolly never been called a n-word or heard horrible stories about how your parents and their parents were treated like less than human.

Also LOVE that you complain about how the MSM got the smugfaced drum chanting kid story wrong. But then you also get it wrong to make ur view look better. When all I hear is whining and bitching.

A group of extremist black Judeo/Christian ppl were chanting insults at the pro-life protest. So the pro life ppl started chanting some school spirit songs to drown out the hate. And some native dude walked over and started beating his drums, as one does when ppl are singing. Smug faced dooche kid didn’t move as the man got closer with the drums and the kids surrounded him while chanting. The picture just made it either look like white kids were bullying an old native guy or a native guy got all up in these white kids’ faces being provocative. How you saw the photo depends on wether ur liberal or republican. Either was everyone got it wrong, including ur dumb ass. A white kid grinning with a MAGA hat just made him look smug and everyone assumed the worst lol

The conservative mind is that affirmative action isn’t necessary because racism no longer exist. Everyone can work, ALMOST everyone can vote. That’s good enough and racism will solve itself? lol

So f*cking naive! Like the idea that a wall is going to fix crime,drugs and immigration.

That's interesting. The only part I don't get is "the progressive agenda". I've seen alot of shady things done by Republicans and not sure why left vs right has to do with the larger picture of "playing by the rules".

That's probably because you're still thinking rules have to be "fair." They don't. I don't claim to understand the real objectives behind what each party wants to accomplish, but here's my best guess:

The DNC wants to eliminate those who are not dependent on them, so they can achieve power over everyone. They want people who they can arrest for any reason, up to and including disagreement with what they want, on some kind of charge. They support illegal immigrants because they know an illegal will do as they're told out of fear of deportation. They support infanticide because those who would practice it are typically those who are not in some way subject to the whims of law enforcement, and thus should not reproduce.

The GOP wants to eliminate lower class voting, usually by making it so hard for those not wealthy to not break some law and have their voting rights removed due to a felony. The idea is that only those in power will get to say who stays in power. The point is not to stop crime... it is to turn everyone impoverished into criminals so they have no voice. They don't want people locked up, just silenced.

I am not referring to the people who join the party here... I am speaking of the leaders of the parties. The fact that both parties are interested in stacking the deck against the people is the reason I made that last statement about the GOP taking over the FBI not being a good thing. Both parties are equally "evil" in their intents; it's just that the DNC at this point was far too powerful for the GOP to counter with their control of the FBI. If things go as I suspect, I will be calling for the DNC to oust the GOP not very far in the future.

No person in the DNC supports illegal immigration. Just because they don’t want a stupid wall doesn’t mean they are pro illegal immigration. They just want the DACA ppl to be Americans. Obama deported way more illegal immigrants by now than Trump. So what’s ur argument there, why was Obama deporting so many illegal immigrants if they support illegal immigration?

No one in American politics supports infanticide. To even suggest such a thing is disgusting! Unless u don’t know the definition of infanticide and ur talking about abortions. At which point, Roe V. Wade was 40 years ago, give it up.

It’s like ur taking exaggerated political talking points from both spectrums to give a wholly unrealistic view of both parties.

Liberals don’t want to lock ppl up for no reason, that doesn’t even make sense. And neither does conservatives making it harder for poor white ppl to vote. That’s their base. Almost everything you said was stupid.

It's a stereotype, but not one founded under racism. Whereas black face was a stereotype founded by racists.

Like it or not, stereotypes are funny. People used to understand that a stereotype was something that wasn't real, rather a humorous caricature of people. The funniest ones were the ones that were so outlandish that no one considered them more than a joke. Heck, look at the redneck jokes that abound... does anyone here think I take them seriously? Of course not! I laugh at them.

Like black folk liking watermelon and fried chicken. That was just a joke. I'm white, and I dearly love me some watermelon and fried chicken.

That particular stereotype started because at one time, blacks were facing discrimination and as a result were typically poor. Watermelons were a fruit that was easy to spot in the neighbor's garden and kids would grab one and have a feast... they were hungry! They rarely got such a treat! Both white and black did it, but the black kids seemed to get caught more (maybe because some folks were watching them closer?). Fried chicken was the cheapest meat around back in the day... and it tasted good too, so we always had fried chicken for Sunday dinner (we were poor as well). Over time, it became a stereotype.

Intelligent people laugh at it. Unintelligent people take it seriously and get all offended.

Grambler is 100% right that this was a joke. If anything it was a joke offensive to the KKK members who may have seen it. You want to get rid of someone like the KKK? Turn them into a joke! Every time someone takes them seriously enough to be offended, they get stronger.

How about the White people yelling at black people. I never see you make threads about that.




This little girl had the Police called on her for selling Bottled water to go to Disneyland.

This white lady called the Police on a little boy, saying he groped her.

There are a TON, of videos of white people being straight up racist.

Bigotry has no color preference or religious high ground.

Who hear thinks that the White people got a pass for their overt criticism of another person, regardless of race?

Sometimes no matter your skin color or theirs, something needs to be said that might seem offensive and sometimes not. When it is NOT, we can get upset and rebutt them, nonviolently nor in a DISCRIMINATORY way based on skin color. People who are acting unsociable to others come in all colors and religions, deserve the grief garnered by their actions, Karma is a b.....

This was in 1984 when it was "edgy". It was past and beyond the 1960's violent civil rights stand offs, and past the 1970's anti-war peace riot era. I would give this guy a "mulligan" on his because of his age, the era, statements were made. That being said, the KKK white hooded guy in the picture....."Lucy! You got some splainin to do!"

Just what is the statement being made? "Can't we all just get along? and especially...(can't we) STAY IN OUR LANES?" He needs to make a public statement, explain it, denounce it, explain cognitive growth and social mindsets, and then....move on.




Garbage. 100% Stalinist garbage post. You arent fooling anyone. The ONLY reason you are taking this stance is because the racist scumbag is Democrat.

If he was on the right you would be singing (or is that reeeeeeeeing!) a very different tune.

You know it, I know it and every poster on this board knows it.


I don’t see it nor do I see any Stalinist garbage that you are referring to.
All I see are a bunch of triggered people such as you that must attack someone for posting a very reasonable response.
As per the OP I think if it’s a joke than no reason to be upset. Even if it not a joke I don’t really care. Doesn’t affect my life in any way. Though watching talking heads and others freak out is funny, makes for good entertainment if ya ask me.


Well of course you don't. Mao appears to be the hero of the left. I have a thread a few days back discussing that. You are admiring the leftist commies and forcing unbiased people to assume you ARE very biased toward a socialist/communist world that is anti Freedom for all. Staying Neutral is the way to see things more clearly. Call them as you see them is fine when you don't ignore major facts. I see you leaning so far left you are about to "tilt that windmill over" soon.

Love the person who seeks to decry the name calling towards one group while calling me smug and dumb ass

No I didn’t get the Covington story wrong

The fact you seek to make excuses for or downplay adult black homophobic racist is telling though

I bet your story would be different if those kids were black and that was the kkk yelling at them

There is a word for people that treat people differently based on what race they are

Oh and glad you ignored the op

So I don’t understand the pain of racism toward blacks

Someone a kkk member Robert Byrd palling around with Hillary is less offensive toward blacks than a 1980’s picture of a non kkk member dressed up as a joke

I really enjoy how people like you pretend to have some enlightened understanding of how us morons that just think all racism is wrong no matter what color and how the selective double standards are tiresome are wrong.

And you accomplish that by name calling and arrogance

Well done!

I too am flabbergasted by the ignoring of the verbal abuse the so called Black Israelite's were spewing to all non Black Israelite's. But especially to the kids.
