I would put the over/under on the percentage of actual racists on this board at 70%. sad
Some people gettin real sensitive, probably because they are feelin kind guilty
The dudes telling me to shut the fuck can well..... shut the fuck up
We have no way of knowing whether Rudolph said it or not, but I'm going to need some corroboration before I just believe it. I'm surprised you're so willing to entertain it just on Garrett's word.
And as I said before, even if Rudolph said the worst possible thing a white man can say to a black man, it would never justify Garrett whacking him with his helmet.
First of all I never said he did say it I suggested it was possible given Rudolph's political leanings. In the excited stats of america there are only 2 choices (unfortunate) and I know which side harbors all the racists, that is indisputable. Additionally I never condoned taking a weapon and hitting him over the head, however that is an easy position to take if you are white, which I am.
However if you are black and have seen the images (lynchings) of how black people were treated for 150 plus years by white people and the ongoing systemic racism that permeates the american landscape to this day (unbelievable) you may have had enough. Fuck that next time I see or experience injustice I am going to take matters into my own hands.
I have commented on this site a couple of years ago when I was tailgating in Pittsburgh and some black guys were trying to sell trinkets to all the white tailgaters and some dude out loud called them "shines", which I had never heard before (fortunately I am not American) and when told what that meant I was mortified that people in the US could be so overtly racist out loud in the open. So callous, so arrogant, so cocky, so disgusting.
BTW I gave one of the peddlers a porchetta sandwich and a beer cause I think its the nice thing to do, he was grateful and a decent guy who did not deserve to be disrespected by that fuckin Neanderthal.
So just saying dont summarily assume its impossible that Rudolph said it, the guy got reinstated what does he have to gain by beating a dead horse?? Maybe he wont be intimidated by the "system" which continues to discriminate against him his family and probably many friends.
Sadly there are knuckle draggers on this site immediately taking the white guys side, black dude is liar, how dare the black guy speak up and then saying there should be a bounty on his head who cares if we lose 50 to nothing gotta keep the black man down at all costs.
