Default Re: More blithe racism

Part of the reason the citizens are protesting again is that the independent autopsy results just came in, and everything so far confirms the witnesses' account. It's looking a whole lot like Darren Wilson murdered him from a distance, while Brown was trying to surrender, and then the entire police force covered for him and launched a full-on assault on the population for protesting.

How anyone can believe a word those pigs say is beyond me. They're the entitled thugs. They're the ones who are rioting.

The cops threatened to shoot one reporter and, on a separate occasion, to mace others.

The parallels to Gaza and the Israeli occupation are multiplying daily.

I want to believe they approached PR firms staffed with some non-zero number of black people and were told to fuck off.

Which, it's important to keep in mind that people LIVE there. They're not tourists, they don't have anywhere else to go. They're being gassed on their own property, for no reason.

Fortunately, it looks like they're pissing off CNN, so maybe there'll be continued mainstream coverage. But most of the real reporting is happening on Twitter.

This might seem like shoehorning, but this really is why we need net neutrality.

I want to read the comments but either you need to log in or the system has been overloaded.

The thing that really torques my crank is this,

Quote:
Most field stops are complete in minutes. How difficult is it to cooperate for that long?
If you've been stopped like I have, twice in 45 years, then yes this is true. Once, a couple of decades ago, when I was speeding to pass someone on a 2 lane road. I was doing 60 in a 55 (Thanks for keeping the world safe Barney F'n Fife).

The last time I drove off from a well lit gas station with my lights off and turned them on when it got a little darker. Right when I turned them on he hit his lights.

Both times I was stopped, they ran my plates, check my license, gave me one ticket, gave me one warning. He looked at by tired whitebread kids in the back seats of our minivan and didn't bother to search me for guns, drugs, or smuggling illegals. So my stop was short and ended with a warning, while the family didn't get crotch searched spread across my car.

So yeah it's easy to say it only takes a couple of minutes, until you get stopped and frisked multiple times and detained for 20-30 minutes for doing diddly that most of us take for granted.

Black cops need to pull over and harrass white kids leaving rich private schools. I bet they would find more drugs and they would get the conversation going.

ETA; Maybe the TSA is the best analogy blacks could use to get across the point. Think of having to do random 20-30 minute TSA screenings each year. They'd randomly stop you while driving, walking, etc. After a while you'd start to get tired of the TSA. It's the closest I've come to being black in America and I hate the TSA.

Officer Darren Wilson's online support group is as classy as you'd expect.

So far, they've already raised over $30K for the cop. A cop who hasn't been charged with anything, who has no legal expenses, and who has not lost his job. They're raising funds for someone simply because he killed an unarmed black teenager.

I'm tempted to go look these people up, because I strongly suspect there are a fair number of open carry supporters in there, and they've always struck me as sort of rubbing people's noses in their white privilege. Like, HAHAHA I can just walk down the street carrying a semiautomatic weapon and the cops don't do anything about it!

I got stopped for speeding late at night (I sped up before the speed limit sign which increased the speed limit by 20 mph, so I guess I fell into their speed trap). I also didn't pull over immediately because I was hoping I'd find a better place to pull over since there was not much room to the side of the road and there were no street lights there yada yada.

I was stopped for over half an hour because I made the mistake of not keeping my head straight forward during the stop. I was looking back at his car because, you know, I was impatient and wanted to know when he was coming back to my car, because of the whole wanting to get home and go to bed thing.

Me looking back at him, he said, was "kinda freaking him out". Then he accused me of being on drugs or drinking. So he called for backup so he could search my car without fear of being attacked. You know, on the basis that I was speeding by a speed trap and I was looking at him instead of staring at the road.

Of course he found nothing. And probably because I'm white, I got off with just a warning instead of a ticket.

Apparently looking at the police is enough of a reason for them to hassle you.

I can easily believe that had I questioned the need to search my car, I would've gotten a ticket. If I had been disrespectful, he might've arrested me. And that if I had been black, it would've taken even less to set him off.

I was once dragged from the back of a car by an officer because I was asleep when my friend who was driving got pulled over. I woke up and sat up when I heard talking. The second officer, on the passenger side yelled, "HE HAS A WEAPON!" then flung open the rear door and pulled me out by my jacket collar.
Luckily we had just come from a concert and didn't even have pocket knives on us. (I usually carry a pocket knife) They handcuffed me and kept my friends against the trunk while they ransacked my friend's car. They didn't find anything other than a couple of packs of cigarettes. I think they tried to imply that there might be weed in them but there wasn't. This was several years ago in New Orleans. With the increased militarization and tension of police today... a situation like that could have ended with us being shot, especially if we were black. All because I was asleep and didn't realize we had been pulled over... for driving through a yellow light.

Why is it whites know nothing about how the mean stupid racist crap they say on the internet floats around for the world to see? They're all like, "But I posted that joke on Facebook for my friends to see, why is it on some article/news segment?"

Hey, a phone can film me and post it on the internet before I'm done talking? Take that down? :roflmao:

I'm not racist, but ...... insert stereotypes and racist comments.

Not surprising to blacks is the number of dumbass white cops/ex-cops saying and posting stuff.

They are just straight up dumb as fuck is why. I honestly think that a whole lot of white people are so sheltered and so immune to consequences or criticism that it never even occurs to them that anything they say or do could come back to bite them ever.

And now allow me to rub all of y'alls' noses in some of my close encounters with law enforcement:

I was a passenger in a stolen car with a big bag of pot (IIRC. Some illegal drug in distribution quantities) under the seat I was sitting in. They arrested the guy who was driving, of course, and brought everyone in and everyone got grilled except for me. They just called my parents to come pick me up.

And yeah, I didn't know about the car (it was his parents' car, and I guess they were pissed off at him) or about the drugs (that time), but I don't think they even asked me.

The only times I've really been questioned by cops was when they've pulled me out of someone else's car to ask me if I was there of my own free will. That happened a few times.

I and a whole bunch of other white people used to regularly drive a car where the key had broken off in the ignition, so we'd start it with our pocketknives. And this was mostly in downtown Boulder, so you know cops saw us doing it. There are cops everywhere there. I don't think anyone was ever even asked about it. I know I wasn't.

When my siblings and I were little kids and my mom was driving us around, every time she saw a police car, she'd say, "What are old pennies made of?" and we'd yell "DIRTY COPPER!"

I have really enjoyed the presumption of innocence, sometimes more than I deserved.

I forgot about the time I hit a police officer with my car after a party. I was pulling my car from the street, into the driveway, and allowing it to warm up the frosted front window, when bam, some dude with a gun in his hand is up on my hood yelling at me.

He was looking for a robbery suspect, but he stopped to slide off the car. I said, "I'm sorry". He told me, "Watch out". Then he ran off into the dark. I looked to see if he'd scratched my hood. I'd been drinking and went inside to take another shot and settle my nerves.

Imagine a black guy running over a policeman with a whole car. A policeman who was holding a gun while chasing a robbery suspect. Don't think he'd get a "Watch out" when he got out of the car and ran up to check if the officer was okay.

I didn't get a ticket, warning, beating, pepper spray, taser, or anything. :(

Hey, a phone can film me and post it on the internet before I'm done talking? Take that down? :roflmao:

I'm not racist, but ...... insert stereotypes and racist comments.

Not surprising to blacks is the number of dumbass white cops/ex-cops saying and posting stuff.
Or any white southerner who works at a convenience store. I have heard white cops refer to watching the shield on 3rd shift as training videos and talk about pulling peoe over for DWB and DWM (driving while black/Mexican)

At least it wasn't the dreaded "dehumanizing stare". That is sufficient cause to beat and choke people. But I think that only black people have mastered the technique, just like how they alone are capable of simultaneously balling their hands up into fists while holding and feeding a puppy.

You've obviously never been punched with a hungry puppy or you'd understand.

If you manually remove the first "s" in the link, the image should display.



Oops. Didn't realise there was another page of posts where this was already mentioned.

At first I couldn't figure out which thread to put this in because it's stupid conservatives too, but this one seemed more appropriate.

Head Missouri GOP calls voter registration drives in Ferguson disgusting

But why? If you haven't done anything wrong you don't have anything to fear, right?

Oh wait

Quote:
In April, an editorial in the Kansas City Star denounced "cheap" tactics by the Missouri GOP to "make voting more difficult for certain citizens, who are most likely to be elderly, low-income, students or minorities. They're not even subtle about it." A proposed amendment to the state constitution would require photo ID at the polls, and a proposal to bring early voting to Missouri would disallow it on Sundays—a big day for black voters.

That St. Louis County Police Department pig who pointed a loaded assault rifle at a peaceful protester and threatened to "fucking kill you" has been suspended. See there? Everything's A-OK. Justice is being served.

For instance, any time an African-American gets, oh, say, for instance, shot in the head while returning to her car after attending a rally in Ferguson, we can rest assured that the pigs will confiscate the bullet fished from her skull and make up some bullshit story about what happened. The story will be totally incongruent with what said African-American told the cops, but hey, how much credence can law enforcement give the word of a colored who's been shot in the head?
