I kind of wince whenever I hear this. It's like they attribute aggression and violence with black men subconsciously so they just call on their personal guerillas to come beat the problem to death when things get froggy. Like why can't you call your black boyfriend to resolve this peacefully? Why he have to automatically Hulk Smash everything?
Just in light of millennials pulling down racist monuments and statues. They can't erase history, but they're doing their best to correct it somewhat by taking away trophies to those who didn't deserve it.
imo Elvis should've never been crowned in the first place.
Im just going to put all the facts i find on the internet into one thread, kinda like chitlin and his news thread.
I just got these off the internet, i dont know if they are true or not. Google it if your so curious.
Ill post infographics and cool educational type gifs in here as well.
Feel free to post some too if you come across any.
No words needed
Just some more bullshit that's getting heavy praise from whites, despite being hugely erroneous
edit: Stop calling me racist. I'm black. Attack my argument with substance
I think this video says it all in a nutshell on why blacks continually fail. The black peoples excuse for not showing up to the rally was a little Rain . The KKK , instead, showed up anyways.
The failure of blacks worldwide through the centuries cannot be explained solely by racism. Jews have suffered from racism throughout the centuries, and that hasn't stopped them from having the highest levels of achievement across the board. Black subculture encourages ignorance, crime , despondency, indolence , and overall just a negative culture that produces bands of worthless individuals.
78% of National Football League (NFL) players are either bankrupt or are under financial stress within two years of retirement and an estimated 60% of National Basketball Association players go bankrupt within five years after leaving their sport.(both predominately black leagues ; funny enough the NFL in 70% black, matching almost exactly up with the 78% financial illiteracy rate) .There are huge problems, guys. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Personal_finances_of_professional_American_athletes
I really despise the paradigm of victimization because it necessarily means that black success is solely incumbent on whites - who we simultaneously believe are racists- to feel sorry for us and take better care of their animals. Anyone else see the problem with begging people who we swear are racist, to give up equal rights and opportunity ? Which is another thing: Equal opportunity presupposes that blacks are entitled to thing like 'Fair' housing, employment , ect. Unless it is government sponsored, you are entitled to none of those things; when whites create businesses and communities for their own lily whites selves , you are entitled to none of it, and if they deny you, this can hardly be considered 'discrimination'. Even if it is, you are entitled to none of it.
Instead, you should do the exact same thing: Build. Blacks refuse to build, yet first gen asians come over and somehow get it done in less than a decade. There will be no "equal " opportunity in many socioeconmic spheres and the results will always be ambiguous unless blacks have sustainable and self reliant communities . Black wall street did it in a time when there was FAR more racism. You can't in 2017?
When the muslims dominated white christians, they created the crusades and kicked their asses out, not wallow in perpetual victomhood . I don't think blacks realize that continually saying how much they have been dominated , is actually just reinforcing and proving the axiom of white superiority. Blacks literally take pride in saying how much whites have dominated them.
If blacks are doing a huge amount of crime relative to their population, dropping out at astronomical rates, having 3 kids by the time you enter your 20's , the last thing you should do is blame is racism.
(CNN) At least 13 people were killed and more than 50 injured after a van rammed through crowds of people in the heart of Barcelona Thursday in an apparent terror attack.
Eyewitnesses reported panic and chaos as the van plowed through crowds in the renowned Las Ramblas avenue, which was teeming at the time with locals and tourists.
One person has been arrested, Catalan police said. Police are treating the incident as a terror attack and have sealed off the area.
"We can confirm 13 dead and more than 50 injured," Joaquim Forn, the Catalan interior minister, told a news conference.
He had earlier given initial figures of one dead and 32 injured but warned that the toll was "bound to rise."
City officials ordered all public events to be canceled, while emergency services requested the closure of metro and train stations in the area.
Reports of the attack first emerged on social media at about 5 p.m. local time (11 a.m. ET). About two hours later, police confirmed that Spain had suffered a deadly attack.
It was the latest in a series of attacks in Europe in which vehicles have been used to mow down pedestrians in public spaces.

Catalan police said they were continuing to hunt for the perpetrators and that the force had activated its terror response protocols. Unconfirmed reports suggested the suspects may have been attempting to reach a getaway vehicle.
Local Spanish media earlier reported that two armed men had entered a restaurant.
As the incident unfolded, police told everyone in the vicinity of Plaça de Catalunya and Las Ramblas to remain indoors until told it was safe to go outside. Footage posted to social media by witnesses showed chaotic scenes with people lying in the street, apparently dead or injured.

Yair Netanyahu says leftists more dangerous than neo-Nazis
Echoing Trump, PM’s son claims ‘thugs of Antifa and Black Lives Matter are getting stronger’ while Nazis are a thing of the past
The son of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu on Wednesday said American left-wing groups are more dangerous than neo-Nazis.
Weighing in on the weekend’s violence in Charlottesville, Virginia, during a far-right march, and US President Donald Trump’s controversial statements that “both sides were to blame” for the deadly incident, Yair Netanyahu said he was far more concerned by leftist organizations that have recently come into public focus.
“To put things in perspective,” Netanyahu wrote on Facebook, “I’m a Jew, I’m an Israeli, the neo nazis scums [sic] in Virginia hate me and my country. But they belong to the past. Their breed is dying out.
“However the thugs of Antifa and [Black Lives Matter] who hate my country (and America too in my view) just as much are getting stronger and stronger and becoming super dominant in American universities and public life.”
The Israeli premier himself tweeted Tuesday that he was “outraged by expressions of anti-Semitism, neo-Nazism and racism. Everyone should oppose this hatred,” after he was criticized for staying silent on Charlottesville.
In a response Wednesday afternoon to Yair Netanyahu’s comments, sources close to the prime minister said, “Yair is an adult and his views are his alone”
Trump’s stance was also supported by Likud MK Oren Hazan, who said Tuesday that the president “is right. Violence and extremism on any side is forbidden and demands condemnation. That doesn’t matter to the bleeding hearts on the left and in the media. After all, they believe that only the right is extremist and violent.”
Other Israeli politicians — from left and right — have been far more critical of Trump’s position, some more directly than others.
Education Minister Naftali Bennett has called on US leaders to denounce the rally’s “displays of anti-Semitism.” Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked of Bennett’s Jewish Home party has urged prosecution of neo-Nazi activists.
Yesh Atid chair MK Yair Lapid and Zionist Union number two MK Tzipi Livni explicitly criticized Trump’s equivalence.
“There aren’t two sides,” Lapid said in a Wednesday statement. “When Neo-Nazis march in Charlottesville and scream slogans against Jews and in support of white supremacy, the condemnation has to be unambiguous. They represent hate and evil. Anyone who believes in the human spirit must stand against them without fear.”
Livni said “When it comes to racism, anti-Semitism and Nazism, there are never two equal sides. There’s good and there’s evil. Period.”
Trump sparked a political firestorm Tuesday when he doubled down on his initial response to the violent white supremacist rally in Charlottesville that ended in bloodshed, saying there was “blame on both sides.”
The Republican president — who the previous day solemnly denounced racism and singled out the Ku Klux Klan and neo-Nazis as “criminals and thugs” — also hit out at what he called the “alt-left” over the weekend melee.
Trump has faced days of criticism from across the political spectrum over his reaction to Saturday’s unrest in the Virginia college town, where a rally by neo-Nazis and white supremacists over the removal of a Confederate statue erupted in clashes with counter-demonstrators.
The violent fracas ended in bloodshed when a 20-year-old suspected Nazi sympathizer, James Fields, plowed his car into a crowd of anti-racism protesters, leaving one woman dead and 19 people injured.
In a rowdy exchange with journalists at Trump Tower in New York, Trump made clear on Tuesday that he was fed up with continued questioning about the issue.
“I think there is blame on both sides,” Trump said.
As he spoke, his new White House Chief of Staff John Kelly, a former Marine general, appeared displeased during the president’s long tirade, standing rigidly.
“You had a group on one side that was bad, and you had a group on the other side that was also very violent. And nobody wants to say that, but I’ll say it right now,” Trump continued. “What about the alt-left that came charging… at the, as you say, the alt-right? Do they have any semblance of guilt?… There are two sides to a story.”
“What about the fact they came charging with clubs in their hands, swinging clubs? Do they have any problem? I think they do. As far as I am concerned, that was a horrible, horrible day,” Trump said.
Trump’s comments were immediately welcomed by David Duke, a former “grand wizard” of the Ku Klux Klan and a key figure at Saturday’s rally.
“Thank you President Trump for your honesty & courage to tell the truth about #Charlottesville & condemn the leftist terrorists,” Duke tweeted.

Job searching is one of my least favorite things to do in life. I'm educated, no criminal record, have a good resume, diverse skill set, and a good work ethic but for some reason I've always had a difficult time finding jobs. My job searches always take longer than they should an I always end up becoming very frustrated. What are some ideas to land a job that I want in a reasonable amount of time without becoming angry, frustrated, pissed off and tired?
I have a job where im on my own 99% of the time so i aint really gotta worry bout even overearing some dumb shit from coworkers..and if i do gotta be around someone i dont bring any of that shit up..most of the people i know are aight but most would be on some "all lives matter" "trump hillary both bad"type shit....try and play both sides to avoid any conflict but you know how they really leanning..nah, fuck that, i get too heated anymore trying to talk to ppl in person bout shit to where i just walk away or change the subject if they try...i have no problem debating and hearing other views but if your views are from fb memes and fox news..nah id rather not even fuck wit u, which is most dudes at my job cause its full of whiteboys
Don’t get caught up in the hype that LaVar Ball and Big Baller Brand have racked up millions of dollars in sales of Lonzo Ball’s signature shoe. Even at $495 each.
The sneakerheads at Nice Kicks did some legwork to refute the rumors that Ball’s ZO2 Prime had sold 5,000 pairs in as little as four hours after its initial release. Like most internet rumors, that turned out to be bunk. Matt Halfhill over at Nice Kicks explained in a post how they figured out the number is much, much lower.
Basically, Halfhill ordered a pair a few hours before Chad Johnson ordered a pair and posted his confirmation email on social media. By Halfhill’s count, just 34 total transactions on the entire Big Baller Brand site had occured between those two orders, and that could have been for shirts, hats, and anything else there that isn’t a pair of very expensive shoes.
When another Nice Kicks staffer ordered a pair of shorts the next day, the transaction number simply didn’t account for thousands of shoe orders—there were just 328 individual purchases.
Out of the 328 transactions that happened on BigBallerBrand.com in the first 24 hours that the shoes were offered for sale, we tracked that a total of just 263 pairs of sneakers had sold in both signed and unsigned versions of the ZO2 Prime.
While we have no access to sales receipts, transactions or traffic data, we have been monitoring the inventory levels of the footwear listed on BigBallerBrand.com. After noting the initial product levels at the start and deducting the current units sold, we can confidently say that 210 pairs of unsigned ZO2 Primes had sold (103 pairs in size 8.5 alone), along with 53 autographed ZO2 Primes.
While it’s tough to confirm anything here from a secondary source and incredibly unlikely the Balls are going to talk down rumors of big sales, the logic used by Nice Kicks here makes sense. And then there’s the big sales numbers that don’t match the actual sales thus far.
Not accounting for shipping or sales tax (that doesn’t appear to be properly applied to transactions anyways), the total revenue for footwear in the first 24 hours was $157,685, based on the numbers sold for signed, unsigned, and the larger sizes that are priced at an extra $200.
While $157,685 is an incredible amount of sales in one day, it is far from the $2.5 million that numerous outlets have reported today online.
It’s an interesting look at the reality of the shoe business, an industry the Balls are now going it alone in. Though opting not to sign with a major shoe company is clearly not a decision to take lightly, the Balls seemed forced to do so. Talks with Nike blew up and the pursuit of growing Big Baller Brand as a whole was sidetracked by talk of top tier price points. LaVar Ball wanted to package his three sons into a single billion-dollar shoe contract, and the companies that dominate the industry wanted nothing to do with it.
While the initial release on Thursday created a huge amount of Internet buzz—both good and bad—it didn’t immediately translate into massive sales. Like Stephon Marbury warned, it’s very difficult to grow a brand on your own. It’s easy to LaVar Ball to get people talking about him, his sons and their very expensive shoes, but actually convincing people to buy them takes a lot more than calling them “premium” and walking away.
Anybody been? Any of y'all from Belize?
We thinking about taking a trip to Belize towards the end of the year. The MIL had friends that went there to visit decades ago and ended up moving there permanently. They own a hotel there now. We went to buy a car from a mom and pop dealership and one of the bruh's working there was from Belize. Dude was like if it wasn't for the fact that his son was out here and had cancer he would be back there now. He had a decent life here, but back in Belize he had several acres of land, a 3000 sq/ft home, and all manner of fruit trees on his property. My Stepfather told us "Go there and don't look back, I'll follow y'all after you get settled"...
Um.. we're just going on vacation.
Is Belize really that serious? I know they speak English and it's almost entirely Black/Afro Latino's, but it seems a lil sleepy to me.
