Halloween costume?

I heard somewhere that his Halloween costume was Micheal Jackson.

Given the clothes and blackface, no way is that Michael Jackson.

And why in hell was Michael Jackson hanging out with some KKK guy?

No. He said that wasn't him. He was confused because around that time he dressed up like MJ for a dance competition. Black face and all. So that definitely was not him in that picture. Because a MJ black face picture is better than a KKK black face picture. Leftist logic, ya know.

My guess was that was his way of denying this photo and getting out ahead of the MJ one that is sure to surface.

I think anybody that supports Trump has no say in this matter. After all he did say there were "some fine people" among the nazis, the klukkers, the skin heads and general white supremacists that invaded Charlottesville. If the dems want to push him out that's fine. But anyone that voted for Trump and wasn't totally outraged at his comments over Charlottesville has given up any right to complain about anyone else's insensitivity to racial matters.

Yeah, you really need to revisit that theory. That whole thing was spawned because crazies were ripping down monuments. "The good people on both sides" remark was in reference to both sides of that issue. It was not comparing the violent leftists who attacked the sanctioned protest.

Crazies ripping down statues ?? That'a rich even from you. This young woman explains it perfectly as to why those statues need to come down.


You want to talk about statues? Let's talk about statues.

I am a proud Southern woman.
I drink sweet tea like nobody's business, know the difference between a Western and English saddle, and can make a pecan pie from scratch.
Believe me when I say I love my heritage and my culture.
I grew up one block down from the Chickamauga battlefield in Georgia.
I had picnics in that park, went hiking on those trails with my girl scout troop.
Confederate statues are all too familiar to me.
In fourth grade I took a field trip to Stone Mountain to see the faces of Jefferson Davis, Robert E Lee and Stonewall Jackson up close and personal.

This is a very fond memory for me of my childhood.
I remember salt water taffy and blown glass figurines in the park.
I remember riding the Summit Skyride and just looking out for miles and miles.
But you know what I don't remember? Anyone telling me,
"These men carved into this mountain are the men that lost the Civil War.
These are the men who fought to be a separate America and lost.
These are the men that fought to keep slaves."
No one took the time to educate me on the real history of these men.
Instead, I was filled with fun, happy thoughts.
How could these guys be bad people?
I mean, they're riding horses, come on!
Every ten year old thinks someone riding a horse is cool.
Now, there's a chance I just wasn't listening, or I didn't read enough wall plaques because I was an easily distracted kid who didn't care too much for history.
This is entirely possible.
But I guaran-damn-tee no one ever said the word slavery to me while I was there.
Not my parents, not my teachers, not the park employees.
The same goes for the Chickamauga Battlefield, less than half a mile from my front door.
No one ever stopped to say, "this is important history because they fought to keep slaves and lost."

All that time I spent staring at sculptures of these men, I never knew they were fighting on the wrong side of history.
Now you bet I heard phrases like "state rights" and "war of northern aggression". But it was always in passing and vague. What state rights? Aggression about what?
No one ever told me, and I didn't know I was supposed to ask because it was all so normal to me.
That's the thing about these memorials.
Do they offend me? No, not particularly.
Because they've been NORMALIZED my whole life.
This is where it is our job to listen to marginalized people that are offended and hurt by these.
If they say these are bad and we should take them down, they're probably right!
Just because we've been taught our whole lives that they're okay, does not make them okay.
The fact that they don't make me uncomfortable IS THE WHOLE PROBLEM.
These statues aren't there to teach us history.
They're there to rewrite history and feed us false perceptions of the Civil War.
They make us comfortable with a very bad cause.
Do you think these white supremacists were radicalized overnight?
They are a direct product of DECADES of misinformation and misdirection.
Of normalization and an overwhelming acceptance of "how it's always been".
The South can no longer fall behind the ideology of how it's always been.
Times are changing, and we should too.
I love being a Southerner. I love my heritage.
But I can be proud of where I come from without embracing a history that never really was.
I can acknowledge my ancestors' mistakes and appreciate the past without glorifying them on pedestals.
We don't need a single Confederate statue.
Not a single one.
Not until they're all accompanied with real teachings and historical lessons, which can happen in a museum.
Not until we have our picnics beside Robert E Lee and describe him to our children as he REALLY was.

Please share this so all centrists and sympathizers can know that yes, you can be a proud Southerner and NOT defend these terrible things.

It's not our fault that we've been misled our whole lives.

But we're adults now, and we no longer have an excuse for not educating ourselves.
I am a proud citizen of the United States of America, not the Confederate States of America.

Nope. I wanted to address your post. The crazies ripping down monuments was an imperative fact.

Let's look at some of that vandalism in action shall we.




This would be felony vandalism

But im sure that there are good people in there too.


See how that works.

Resigning after getting caught inblackface is the new normal isn't it?
YEARBOOK: Ralph Northam In Blackface & KKK Photo - Big League Politics
I've seen a lot of hysterical people yelling about how the Gov should resign because of the yearbook pictures. But is there any actual evidence that the pictures from the "yearbook" are legitimate? Has the yearbook publisher produced an actual yearbook with the same pictures in their copy? We should know by now that people make shit up every minute of the day about other people. The MAGA hat case proves that.

In all probability the Gov was a racist and is still a racist. But is this all a false flag operation to get rid of him on his support for the abortion bill?

Someone needs to verify that the yearbook pictures are legitimate. We could all be being played. So produce a legitimate yearbook direct from the publisher.

Now the Lt. Governor who would succeed Northam has his own problem. Gotta believe the women, right, lefties.

Shame on you. There were many people at that protest who were against the tearing down of Confederate statues, many were not KKK or neo-Nazi's. Mnay were just average American citizens.

There were many people on the other side, including Antifa goons, so all the pro tearing down the stautes were Antifa goons. Like it?

Guys have been doing stuff since Adam. The hysteria has really accelerated since Bill Cosby took a hit. I'm not taking any accuser's word about shit that happened 14 years ago unless there is a trail of verified paperwork to substantiate it.
