If I've learned anything from white people the past couple years, especially the men, it's that they are the most persecuted group on the face of the earth. And pointing out their racism actually makes you the racist.
The death rattle of Caucasianity is annoying as shit.
Ah, if only our Founding Fathers had displayed the wisdom of today's flavorful article and its writer. Clearly, majority rules - instead of that pesky Electoral College - would've served the interests of the citizens much better.
We could still have slavery! Women would still probably not be allowed to vote. And good, Caucasian men everywhere could maintain the status quo to their liking. Alas.
This is moot because of where there this video took place in a city recently victimised by racial violence, in an institution such as the Citadel which has worked to be inclusive regardless of race or sex.
It is not what they (or Haire) say now or do claim to be upon exposure of said video, ie.
I'm representative of my military historical Southern institution whose past might be riddled with racial/sexual bias,etc. but if you see me dressed like a member of the KKK do not be silly & jump to a conclusion based on me, my school.
I am not a racist I just like to dress like one...
"The Post and Courier used to be a notorious hotbed of hot troll-on-troll action, but these days, the daily's comments sections are as quiet as the after-midnight Upper King Street of Joe Riley's dreams."
Because the P and C comments are no longer anonymous.
"Much like pornography, determining what is racist and what isn't is subjective"
You're welcome for the metaphor.
Charleston WV. Shaun King is black, Rachel Dolezal is not and never will be.
One can put on a white pillow case and sing a Christmas song and no one should be offended. One can put on a white pillow case and sing a song in front of a mirror, and unless this hooded person takes a selfie and sends it off, then no one should be offended. But eight people putting on pillow cases and looking at seven others doing the same and nothing seems offensive to any one in the group???? Perhaps those eight singing fools should continue their education at a slower-track school.
Different perspective doesn't automatically translate into bigotry or, take a gasp, racism. Unfortunate many people are looking to be offended and regardless of the "truth" wish to use most of these incidents to demonize the perpetrator and to, in theory often, to advance their various agendas.
One wonders what the writer opinion is in cases like Rachel Dolezal or Shaun King (BLM) where white people masquerade as black people. In those cases is acceptable (or sane) to not care about the truth and be, as the writer says,"just polite"? In our society the "cause" often trumps the"truth".
My head just exploded. zee, could you make that longer.
Chris Haire is full of it. But he nailed it this time. Well done.
Give me the Mothers, Capt. Beefheart, Velvet Underground, the Ramones... yeah I'm old as shit but I got to see the real thing
I want to live where there are no thugs..my neighborhood used to be a safe place.
The songs on Core were conceived and performed before anyone knew about Pearl Jam. There are bootlegs of STP (known in those days as Mighty Joe Young) playing those songs that predate Pearl Jam's formation. With very little effort, you can go hear the demo of Wicked Garden on YouTube. Weiland's 1990 vocals are the same as his '92 vocals.
You are a moron. You have no respect for musicians. STP had their own sound 100%. Have YOU ever composed an original record? Idiot.
What were they singing? Why waste a whole sheet that is way too big and long when they can just simply use an extra pillow case? Rumor has that it was a black student filming the scene. Why would you post KKK stuff on a snapchat app when it is easily traceable on who recorded it? Heck lets ask the lady who reported these photos on what she heard in this video? I would stake my life that it was christmas carols.
I'm trying to imagine being a knob and told to dress like a ghost (this would be Dec 1991). White sheets might be an option but A) you have to use a lot of those making banners and they cost money and B) "holy crap, we might look like we're in KKK robes".
So, right there in the full press and half press we have: white socks, white pants, white gloves, white T-shirts now we just need something to put over our heads with eyeholes and there's a pillowcase which is cheaper to replace. Fuck it, good enough, let's do it so we can get back to studying for exams and get to Christmas furlough.
On the scale of bad things that happen at US colleges (murders, rapes, assaults, deaths or near deaths from alcohol or drugs, cheating scandals, etc) this is pretty mild. I guess it shows what a high opinion, with correspondingly high expectations, people have of The Citadel. So, we're honored.
Liars. Ghosts don't have pointed heads. I might believe condoms.
Have you ever met someone who believes in ghosts (or has seen a ghost), David Kyle and also Ron Liberté?
The Ghostbusters logo invalidates your argument.
I love a good Swedish Death Metal reference. Well done, Haireball.
