    ...seriously, they're just stupid kids...


    Yeah....well isn't there video showing another depiction of what happened though? Almost seemed as if the first clip was posted to spur the kind of response it got and then the second one came out as some kind of "gotcha" moment. 


    Here's the thing.  MAGA hats are the new white hats, the new brown shirts.  

    This kid may not have been acting like a racist prick at that particular instant so he could claim plausible deniability.  

    But in the larger context, he rolled up with a bunch of white people to harass minorities. All he was missing was the pitchfork tiki torch.

    Nevermind all the stupid racist shit his mom's been caught spouting...
    Well damn. Now I'm really confused.

    I thought that the sentiment of the thread contributors here was that (according to his own account of things that transpired) this really nice boy was trying to diffuse a tense situation by remaining very calm and instructing his classmates to 'stand down' from engaging with the demonstrators? And that the demonstrators were actually the aggressive and hostile ones- yelling at the kids to 'move back to Europe' and that they 'stole their land'?

    I’d already be there if it were me because I’d be able to get a refund on my show tickets and buy groceries. All those poor MAGA’s are going to be so disappointed.

    Jordan basketball team ducking north Minneapolis Martin Luther King Day game

    The Jordan High School boys basketball team was supposed to play at Patrick Henry High School in north Minneapolis at 5 p.m. tonight. But, in light of last week's ugly incident, of white exurban kids flashing a pro-Trump sign at a mostly-minority city school's team, the school district has decided their boys will stay home for the day.
    HOLY crap!  Did that kid paint himself black??

    That didn't even jump out at me. I assumed it was because they were doing a 'blackout' style home game and took 'blackout' to another level (all the other kids are wearing black).

    The twitter link above I linked without description depicts ‘earlier’ footage of the elderly native man and the nice kids.

    A fair bit of mockery and disrespect on display, but maybe that’s just how it seems. I’ll beat a few of you to the punch: maybe it’s the kids excited an elderly Indian man has approached them and they are enthusiastically engaging with him in a cultural kind of way?

    No, I don't think that photo with the black face is Covington Catholic.  They have blue colors.  I'd be shocked if it were the same.  But what doesn't surprise me is that this is being spread by the "other 98%".  They are as bad as right wing bullshit.  It wouldn't surprise me if it was run from a Russian troll farm too.  Remember, they are going for division, not right wing.

    hmmmmmm  https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-sports-covington-nathan-phillips-nick-sandmann-20190121-story.html

    This won’t help Kentucky student Nick Sandmann’s case.

    A photo said to be featuring Covington Catholic High School students clad in blackface during a 2015 basketball game made the rounds on Twitter Monday morning amid last week’s Indigenous Peoples March controversy.

    The photo depicts several white students, some in blackface, shouting at an opposing black player.

    While the photo’s origins couldn't be verified, the official Covington Catholic High School YouTube account published a video last January boasting its basketball school spirit, and several clips, including one from 2012, showcase attendees chanting in black face, a mockery of the opposing players

    The full-body black paint worn by the students in the school’s official video closely resembles that of the students in the photo being circulated on social media.

    One student from the photo, not in blackface, is sporting a logo that also mirrors the Covington emblem.

    Sandmann, the Covington (Kentucky) junior donning a MAGA cap, tried to dispel reports that he was mocking Nathan Phillips and other Native Americans at the end of the Indigenous Peoples March as they performed the “American Indian Movement” song at the Lincoln memorial.

    “I never interacted with this protestor,” Sandmann said in a statement. “I did not speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures or other aggressive moves.”

    Meanwhile, Phillips, spoke to The Daily News about the incident over the weekend.

    “I read it,” Phillips told The Daily News of Sandmann’s statement sent to CNN by a public relations firm. “I didn’t agree with it… They looked like a lynch mob.”

    Sure, I guess ... I'm not buying this author's interpretation of the the situation either, especially not her theory about that expression on that kid's face. I actually now think things are swinging way too far the other way. I think those fuckers were still acting like smug, racist little pukes, and think it's still very clear that that school is pumping out sick little racists as fast as it can produce them.

The more compelling argument is the one about the uselessness of the whole exercise and that Twitter mob is out of control.  It is.  It is just another example of the daily outrage machine careening from team red to team blue,  with only greater division ensuing.

    Sure, I guess ... I'm not buying this author's interpretation of the the situation either, especially not her theory about that expression on that kid's face. I actually now think things are swinging way too far the other way.

    10000000% agree. We grow more divided every day.

    Jordan basketball team ducking north Minneapolis Martin Luther King Day game

    The Jordan High School boys basketball team was supposed to play at Patrick Henry High School in north Minneapolis at 5 p.m. tonight. But, in light of last week's ugly incident, of white exurban kids flashing a pro-Trump sign at a mostly-minority city school's team, the school district has decided their boys will stay home for the day.
    HOLY crap!  Did that kid paint himself black??
    That didn't even jump out at me. I assumed it was because they were doing a 'blackout' style home game and took 'blackout' to another level (all the other kids are wearing black).
    Jesus....
    Is this the same high school?
    Yes
    All Male
    Mostly white
    All white teachers and admin
    Notorious for being misogynistic, racist, xenophobic 
    No, I don't think that photo with the black face is Covington Catholic.  They have blue colors.  I'd be shocked if it were the same.  But what doesn't surprise me is that this is being spread by the "other 98%".  They are as bad as right wing bullshit.  It wouldn't surprise me if it was run from a Russian troll farm too.  Remember, they are going for division, not right wing.  
    hmmmmmm  https://www.nydailynews.com/news/national/ny-sports-covington-nathan-phillips-nick-sandmann-20190121-story.html

    This won’t help Kentucky student Nick Sandmann’s case.

    A photo said to be featuring Covington Catholic High School students clad in blackface during a 2015 basketball game made the rounds on Twitter Monday morning amid last week’s Indigenous Peoples March controversy.

    The photo depicts several white students, some in blackface, shouting at an opposing black player.

    While the photo’s origins couldn't be verified, the official Covington Catholic High School YouTube account published a video last January boasting its basketball school spirit, and several clips, including one from 2012, showcase attendees chanting in black face, a mockery of the opposing players

    The full-body black paint worn by the students in the school’s official video closely resembles that of the students in the photo being circulated on social media.

    One student from the photo, not in blackface, is sporting a logo that also mirrors the Covington emblem.

    Sandmann, the Covington (Kentucky) junior donning a MAGA cap, tried to dispel reports that he was mocking Nathan Phillips and other Native Americans at the end of the Indigenous Peoples March as they performed the “American Indian Movement” song at the Lincoln memorial.

    “I never interacted with this protestor,” Sandmann said in a statement. “I did not speak to him. I did not make any hand gestures or other aggressive moves.”

    Meanwhile, Phillips, spoke to The Daily News about the incident over the weekend.

    “I read it,” Phillips told The Daily News of Sandmann’s statement sent to CNN by a public relations firm. “I didn’t agree with it… They looked like a lynch mob.”

    Ever watch a Duke game at Cameron? They point,  jeer, call names,  and harrass anyone inbounding the ball.  The article says students verbally abused the other team.  Unless you use a slur,  there's no such thing at a sporting event.

    Totally agree with you. Shit when I played college baseball it was ruthless!  Everything was fair game. However I do draw the line with the indivuals dressing up as black face.

    So what are you saying Scruff?

    Are you saying people shouldn’t be too ticked with a bunch of smug little pricks that mocked and ridiculed an elderly native man? Because it makes the smug little pricks dislike the ‘left’ more and then the left can’t work with them?

    Yeah....well isn't there video showing another depiction of what happened though? Almost seemed as if the first clip was posted to spur the kind of response it got and then the second one came out as some kind of "gotcha" moment. 


    Here's the thing.  MAGA hats are the new white hats, the new brown shirts.  

    This kid may not have been acting like a racist prick at that particular instant so he could claim plausible deniability.  

    But in the larger context, he rolled up with a bunch of white people to harass minorities. All he was missing was the pitchfork tiki torch.

    Nevermind all the stupid racist shit his mom's been caught spouting...
    MAGA hats are the new white hats the new brown shirts? Explain this sentence to me. I m thinking kkk and brown shirts from nazi Germany but maybe I am wrong since a lot of African-Americans wear the MAGA hat. 
    hahaha......this is a joke, right?
