Not even close to the same thing. As usual, your posts are dillusional and innacurate.

2) dumb teens who dont realize the segregation history and the feelings it would stir up.

3) a completely tasteless joke

Todays youth seem to incredibly open to having friends of all races... at least judging by my daughters group of friends. It just seems odd to me that there are these things happening in HS and universities. I would expect it more in the gen pop so to speak.

If you are going to be a grammar nit, capitalizing the first word in your sentences would be a great place to start.

High schools and universities are places where people of color go to become educated and therefore move up in the economy. It's no coincidence we're seeing a lot of these incidents happen in that space.

The same factors are why we saw desegregation battles in the 1950s/60s take place at schools and why so much white flight fretting from the 70s to today took the politically correct guise over anxiety about school quality, busing and affirmative action. They're critical institutions of social normalization and the place where winners and losers in society are first marked out and white parents and surely some of their kids know it.

It's a funny thing to study but pre WWII America had much, much more political street violence than we see today. When your economy is manufacturing based, you battle over railway lines and outside factories and in the market spaces on the street.

Contemporary America generates its wealth from information and moved all of that class anxiety into schools by proxy. Which for the cynical social commenters might seem downright bizarre but on reflection it's perhaps fitting.

I have a 13yo daughter who's in 8th grade that goes to a Catholic school in southern Arizona where she and a boy are the only two whites in the grade. Without giving any details, I'll just say that things are tense at school esp w/those two being the only whites. It really sucks for her/them.

Good idea for a thread. maybe the standard for inclusion should be higher than any fantastic claim made on twitter? I mean only if you want it to be anything more than another einbert fever dream.

Honestly my response to that would be (besides the fact that there are a couple fake stories floating around), it's just another form of racism that you refuse to believe people's stories. Believe what you want to believe, I'm doing my best to only post true stories. And if you find out a story is false like at the top of the thread, by all means post and let us know.

Edit: Also I'm trying to mainly post events with documentation (photo, video, audio, etc.)

Re: Trump's America

Now is the time to have those tough, uncomfortable conversations with your friends and family guys. It's gonna suck but you need to talk with them and you need to let them know you're not okay with the racism, you're not okay with the hate, and they need to be not okay with it either. Don't let racist jokes go by. Say something. Don't let racism go unnoted in any work situation. I know we all don't want to do these things because it's "lame" and like I said uncomfortable. But we've produced 60 million Trump voters by ignoring these issues and just wishing they would die off. They're not going to just die off. We have to be active. Go out and make a difference.

lol.

I do have to admit I was in my own bubble thinking that racial issues were mostly gone in this day and age. I guess I was just projecting. At least I taught my daughter well...

Wow, turns out that norm against explicit racial appeals in order to win an election was there to prevent some bad stuff from happening. Who knew.

We need to encourage and film the racist ****.
Doesn't everyone have a camera these days?
Doesn't every student have social media of some type?

Putting actual evidence of *******ry online is the best revenge.
