I understand the context you're doing this within, and the point you're trying to make, but being an "ally" isn't an excuse to use this word. You have done it several times.

If you're not Black it's generally not a good idea to use the N-word. This goes for everyone.
I understand the delicacy. I really do. I never use the word.

But these white folks who talk about making America great again clearly are referring to a past incarnation of the US, the post-WWII era to be exact. I've posted examples of that "greatness" in the vernacular of the day.

I was the 5-year old who ran for the colored water fountains to be torn away by my mom or my ultra-racist Aunt Trudy, a dear aunt but one whom I watched make big scenes in restaurants when blacks were seated ... in the mid-60s btw.

Though I was raised in a racist culture by racists, I didn't "buy into" it. But I lived through enough of it to see past the facades of closet racists, you know, the ones who have a black friend.

You know they changed the law back in '64, but changing laws doesn't change hearts and minds.

I apologize if I offended you Gordy.
Thanks from Gordy

Case in point, Gordy.

It's fine. I agree with everything you said, it just made me a bit uncomfortable. You can't change them. I try not to even engage with them, but every once in a while they say some dumb shit and I have to check them.

They defeat their own arguments. I shouldn't be respected or treated like a human being because I use a word that YOU invented. It's silly. On top of that you think it's degrading, but you insist that if we use it then so can you. The fact that Black folks redefined it for their own use, is no different than: East Indians referring to themselves as "coolies", Native Americans referring to themselves as Indians, LGBT folks referring to themselves as "f*gs" or queer, or even Americans referring to themselves as Yankees (which is actually a British slur for Americans that has been used since colonial times).

Caca doesn't think Black folks deserve to be treated like human beings. It has absolutely nothing to do with a word. That's anti-Black as hell. Then he wonders why I have little respect for that flag, and why these athletes are all kneeling.

Racism never went away. It can't be legislated away. People change, or they don't. Many whites haven't changed.

You'd have been chanting the same Marxist echo chambert crap back then. I remember your type back then. I always smiled when you took my picture from the sidelines.
I don't think i would have been given that luxury. I could try and compare it to what the men in my family did but they were busy fighting wars and getting spit on by dirty hippys so i couldn't say.

None of that matters in your attempt to distract from the subject at hand.

Try and stay on topic, shill. The past is the past. Stop trying to relive your "glory days" vicariously thru ignorant, naive youth.

If anyone is trying to take away rights it is the authoritarian leftists.
I'm on the topic at hand, rather than wagging a stupid finger and making stupid psychological analyses.

Yeah well, I was busy protesting stupid wars, and being denigrated for doing it, so family members' patriotism wasn't used by TPTB to line their goddamned pockets with blood money.

So piss on you and your self-righteousness. I'm well aware history is your enemy, as are people who lived through it. Your "type" didn't like protests then and they don't now. Fact.

Read my post again if you like i talk about both sides being whipped into a frenzy and both sides having violent plants. Shit just the mere presents of the white nationalist shitheads is agitating. This is why they go thru all the hoops to have a sanctioned event. It gets on public record. It is free advertising and all they have to do is show up. Extremists are annoying no matter what their belief system is.

And what exactly is my type?

It is amazing how so many leftist boomers were protesting "back in the day" ( Monday morning quarterbacks. ) when today they support all of the cushy authoritarian ideals of modern leftists. Keep projecting, pumpkin.

But hey this violent identity politics movement is exactly what Dr. King was working towards.

Now get back to protesting against free speech, supporting language laws and globalism.

Or were you going to explain how the peopld who are out trying to have free speech rallies and open debate are trying to shut down protests?
