First, the reason I took it that way is that we have seen many stories like this the past few months. We have seen stories white people calling the police on black people from the ages of 8-80 doing things like swimming in a pool in their condo, having a cookout by the lake, selling water, sitting in Starbucks, playing too slow on a golf course, etc. None of this is new, but with social media and video on cell phones, we can capture more of this and spread it. That is why I pointed it out here. Some would say "well how do we know they called the police because they were black?" We don't know in any of those cases, but they happen to be white people calling the police on black people doing nothing but minding their own business. This has happened a lot to black people throughout history. This is a pattern, and this story contributes to that pattern.
@Dont Taze Me Bro, my name can be Michael Blackasamug, and I will still point out racism in our society on this board within the rules of this forum. This is especially true since so many posters ignore or act like it is a big deal.
You also do not know me outside of this board. So do not assume anything about me or my actions. Also, it does not matter what I say about my actions away from here because there is no way for me to verify it, so whatever to that point. Which is why I stick to what is said on here by posters.
I am glad that you are raising your child the right way for them to be tolerant and open-minded. But also raise your child to be aware of a lot of America's effed up history to non-white people here and abroad. That is the only way we will see change. We have to stop lying to ourselves about this country.
I would love to meet up with you. I am not a violently racist, angry guy like a lot of our "moderate" posters on here want to believe. I tell the truth. You may not like it, but its the truth. But like I said before, you have no idea about me, who my friends are, and how I operate in my life. So do not assume.
@pjfootballer, honestly bro. I am not going to read any of what you said because based on your posting history you are not very insightful or interesting on this topic. I challenge you to do better. I don't rock with your posts because all you do is whine about sports and pining for nostalgia. Especially in the NBA threads. You also are a very fake Maryland fan and have said as much on here. You do not offer much insight and have this weird self-importance despite no one caring about a lot of what you have to say. You got half a bar, and please tag me next time.
