I have a better question for those who say it’s ok to be white.

Is it okay to be black and live with the same expectations and rights as whites??

Gee, I miss having a real president!

The bot farm is busy tonight trying to get people off the important subjects, and on to the nonsense subjects.

 

And here you are - whining and contributing(?).


And here is the TROLL with his usual insightful contributions to the topic.


I have offered my view on the topic. How about you - do you find the phrase "threatening"?


I must have missed it. I'll go look while you repost in case i miss it again.


where is your view rk?


I've posted it.

 

I do not feel threatened by the words.

It's not a dog whistle, scout and it's not your rewrite. it is simply - "It's O.K. to be white". Do you feel threatened by those words?

depends on what kind of white guy you are doesnt it? can we guess on what kind you are?


Of course it's good to be good and bad to be bad.

 

Now, back to the issue - I think it's O.K. to be white - your view??


DO you need assurance?

 


And this is the crux of it all, isn't it?   


The crux is whether or not the sign is "threatening". Do you have any thoughts on the topic?


given its source, and its implied meaning, do you think the sign is non threatening?


Words have meaning beyond the source. So, do you find "It's O.K. to be white" (the words) to be "threatening"/

From afishers link :

 

http://www.wusa9.com/news/local/maryland/its-okay-to-be-white-signs-a-planned-attempt-to-create-raci...

 

jpf its your topic. is this ok? It plain ol is NOT.  Lots of dithering by the right in posts "between the links"  but it no one responded to afisher. so, is the topic just not well researched, or is it another alt right hit and run. 

 

Hey, ol Dad raised me to be a WHITE MAN. lots of things go under that heading,  and bash the fash was one. so im fine with me.

So it begins.

It's very revealing that alt-right won't admit to the unspoken but nationally recognized to be truthful addendum of the word  "trash" to the statement "it's ok to be white" that so obviously applies to that "unfortunate" group...
