Re: “City Paper, CCSD subject of lawsuit by Academic Magnet parents

"Even though they found no evidence of any racial reason for the team's watermelon celebration after the win, and even though all concerned told them there was no racial reason for the celebrations, they falsely published to others that the football team made animal sounds and drew a monkey face on the watermelon during these celebrations."

This whole premise is crap logic. Circular cause and consequence. Notice that the claim does not deny the team made animal sounds or drew a "monkey" face; it just says the investigations found no racial motivations, but that by reporting the alleged actions, it made the actions appear racial — as if those actions didn't have that appearance on their own.

People saying their actions had no racial motivations does not make the accusations in themselves false. I could get really mad, then punt Baxter off a bridge in Milwaukee. To Ron Burgundy, it would appear that I was violent and disliked dogs. But then I say to Ron that I wasn't violent and didn't dislike dogs. That does not change the fact that I got mad and kicked the dog over the bridge.

Re: “Tim Scott's inspirational story is far from inspirational

The issue is getting a hand up and then saying you got where you did through your own hard work. If you want to celebrate the result, you've got to acknowledge the catalyst.

Re: “God doesn't like the Clemson Tigers

Also, you're badly misinformed about what is the act of "Clemsoning."
