I think those women, one being the newest youngest and really dumb member elected to Congress, are wearing white to show solidarity against the oppression of women in history. Which was really put in its place in Trump's speech when he said this year we have the most women elected in Congress ever in our history.
That's some oppression. Poor dears.

I'm so sick to death of this black face nonsense. But you notice it is getting a lot of legs in Left media because this month is black history month? Coincidence? I don't think so.
People want the VA governor to step down because over 30 years ago he supposedly wore black face while in school. Really? A 30+ year old "offense" and they want him to step down now nearly 4 decades later as Governor? But not a peep about his supporting and describing how infanticide would be practiced in his state should the new abortion bill have passed. And which he promised to sign into law.
He maybe wore black face nearly 4 decades ago! Off with his head!
He described how infanticide would be performed by law in Virginia after he signed the law as Governor. (crickets)

How about all this talk about equality and equal rights put up? Let's start with the Wayans Brothers. Years ago they made an entire more than hour long racist movie where two black men, Wayans brothers, wore white face. And, cross dressed as women.
APOLOGIZE! Donate all the net proceeds to St.Judes Children's Hospital so as to make amends.

Harvey Levin. Owner and creator of the Hollywood Gossip TV show , TMZ. Fire the racist who appears in your daily broadcast. His name is Van. Fire him for wearing white face just a few months ago during your Halloween costume show.

Or is it a matter of black privilege that they're entitled to wear white face.
While the Democrat party whom Irreverent All Sharptongue, (The "reverend" Al Sharpton) during Obama's first campaign stated in his speech before the DNC, that the Democrat party was the party choice of the black community.
Really? Black Democrats have voted for over 50 years for a party that has kept them enslaved since slavery was abolished. The chains are gone but the policies still hold firm.
And yet, the Dem's call Republican's racists?

Right!

But saying "Happy Holidays" is persecution and part of a war on God, right?

And yet - in doing what he did - Abraham Lincoln said the same about those in the same party he led as President; he being forward-thinking like that: that huge memorial to him in Washington DC.

Now stand outside such with a loudhailer, and say he's a RINO.

(*Crickets chirp*)

...thought not.

Most Democrats are condemning those decades old cases if black face done by fellow democrats yet few Republicans are condemning the likes of Steve King.

If what you say is true, why wasn't the first black President a Republican?

Could someone finally explain to me how the fuck the Repugs justify calling the Dems "the real racists?" Aren't the red states the Klan strongholds? Didn't Brothers Thurmond and Helms ditch the Dems for the Repugs when Civil Rights became an actual thing?

What the hell is the - let's call it, "thinking," - behind this nonsense?

Also, yes, the Wayans should apologize for White Chicks but not for the reasons you think. And they should bring back In Living Colour, with the original cast once Kidding wraps up, since we're asking for shit that ain't ever going to happen.

@Alencon: No, they fundamentally don't. They live in a world where only people who agree with them completely are allowed to exist and speak and any divergence from cult dogma is a horrible transgression. They do not consider the likes of you and me to be real people worthy of consideration.

@Kuyohashi: They're projecting, basically. They have very little in the way of imagination or knowledge, and so attribute their own desires and biases to their enemies. The sooner American adults and sane people realize that they will never listen or learn anything at all, the better off everyone will be.

Granted, calling for the governor's resignation because he wore blackface is going a bit overboard, at least if it's this reason by itself. Especially making the claim that "he should have known better then, not just now". Sorry to tell you folks, but that claim he makes about how common it was, even in 1984 . . . looks like where he was at it's true. Look at others now getting caught out as having worn blackface, in the 1980s, and even 1990s.

Where I grew up, and particularly as I got to my teen years and into my 20s, that was not going on, not around me, at least not with the people I hung out with. But my dad told me about growing up in the 1950s and 1960s in Mississippi and Georgia, and about his own racism. Racism he himself didn't recognize as such, because that's "just how it was". It took joining the Navy, being away from the South, and meeting a great deal more and a wider variety of people, dealing with them on a regular basis, to understand that what was going on was racism, and it was foul, and it was not only keeping back the black people, but many of the white people as well. And how the white people who did benefit only technically did so by being on the top of the heap they themselves helped to cut down to make their own climb that much easier. Ever heard the saying "I'd rather be first in the rudest village than to be second in Rome"? That's what it was really about.

And plenty of places didn't lose that in the 1970s, but held onto it, and some communities still do. Plenty of people keep trying to create these communities for themselves to live in, in fact. And the Virginia governor went to school in such a community during his college years, it seems, so yeah, it's "normal". That's the way things are done. Apparently at some point between then and now he's seen at least some of how what was happening was wrong.

Granted, his admission of being in that picture, then denial and claim of doing blackface for a Michael Jackson impression, and then practically being ready to do the Moonwalk on request when apologizing indicates he has some more to learn. Well, a lot more. But then, call him out for his ignorance of the situation now, not try to claim he always should have known that what everyone around him said was right was in fact wrong.

Reminds me quite a bit of the blacklash against Liam Neeson, admitting his own racist episode, looking for a chance to beat a black man . . . and realizing himself that what he was thinking and trying to do was wrong, and going to a therapist on his own to get help for it. He tells you now he knows it was wrong, he tells you now he's ashamed of having been there. The fact that he uses it to connect to the same kind of vengeful rage to play a character is just how he uses an evil that has been inside him to perform his art.

If you want to castigate anyone who has ever committed any kind of evil, don't forget to castigate yourself. We've all done it. If you claim to be an exception, I'll quote you myself on this site, because I know you're a liar, or at best completely unaware of your own thoughts and actions, and the consequences of them.

>What those from the all-but dead* Ruptured Retards parasitically cling to

>Ruptured Retards' list of 'Unacceptable News Sources' includes "The Sun": but is owned by Rupert Murdoch: and said list doesn't include Faux News which he is a major shareholder of. Faux News of course is the go-to for Raptards.



Considering the above paradox, you haven't even got a subatomic particle-sized prayer OP.

*- Did I say 'all but dead'? Click on this link:

What Ruptured Retards has become - especially if they place their cursor(s) over a certain part of the main page, and therefore the text which appears - would make them rupture themselves with the terminal aneurysms & conniptions as a result of what's happened to their precious s(h)ite. >:D

FSTDT is still here, (C)Raptards: and you're left clinging to another s(h)ite for dear life. Where is your 'God' now: in more ways than one...?!

@K'Zad Bhat

If you want to castigate anyone who has ever committed any kind of evil, don't forget to castigate yourself


As if what the above Murdoch-based paradox represents wasn't bad enough, unless they're similarly prepared to declare their God-Emperor a 'RINO' at least: because they certainly did so re. their previous 'Golden Boy' Mitt 'Magic Pants' Romney a nanosecond after Obama was re-elected in late-2012...:



...they should remember what their J-boy condemned those Pharisees as.

And unless they're prepared to do so: to the extent of voting Democrat in 2020, they'll have no alternative but to similarly refer to the very basis of their beliefs to as a 'CINO'.

Didn't you lot condemn Mormons in your 'Cults & Modern Religions' section of what is now a plastic surgery site, (C)Raptards? You certainly didn't consider one - your anti-Obama 'Golden Boy' - in 2012.

Up to that night in November of that year.

Jealousy is an ugly trait, tiny.

You THINK? Wasn't it clearly stated WHY they were wearing white?

Solidarity AGAINST? That's an oxymoron, moron.

There are still more men elected to Congress. When ALL of Congress are women, then we won't speak of oppression any more.
What? An all-female Congress would be unnatural, you say? How many years ago was it all-male? Isn't THAT more unnatural, as about 51 percent of the population are women?
(Apparently, the first woman was elected in 1917, so that's quite a long time ago, right? But it still took 128 YEARS of all-male congresses before that happened!)

Oh, and as long as people are OK with a presidential candidate thinking it's fine and dandy to grabb women by the pu**y or barge into women's dressing rooms, oppression is still alive and kicking.

Do you know who are also sick to death of this black-face nonsense? PEOPLE OF COLOR!!! That's who.
Stupid-ass white supremacists keep making a fool of themselves by donning it.

If this is black-history month, what color-history-month is March? What about April? Which is the Asian-American-history month?
Or is it only February that is a non-white-history month? The other eleven are white-history months?

He's supporting infanticide? Yeah, that IS more interesting than a black-face a lot of years ago. Well, every sane person knows that infanticides would increase significantly if abortions were made illegal, so that is essentially what "pro-life" people are supporting...

Oppression is done by the powerful towards the less fortunate. White people have been the most powerful on the North American continent for over 300 years.
Humor and comedy often contain elements of kicking upwards. Kicking downwards is not comedy, that's bullying

DON'T GO THERE, IDIOT! Don't show that you're either completely ignorant of American history, or you're a determined liar.
Black people vote for the liberal Democrat party, not for the conservative Democrat party.
Do you vote for the liberal Republican party or the conservative Republican party, tiny? It goes both way, ya know.

If Republicans don't want to be called racists, they ought not to act racist. Easy-peasy.

You'll notice that (1) they're objecting to a white governor for something he is KNOWN to have done, but (2) they're DEMANDING the removal of a black lt. gov. for something he is ALLEGED to have done. Granted, sexual assault is much more serious than the casual racism of college kids in a southern state, but what happened to innocent-until-proven-guilty? We have seen recent examples of political operatives willing to sign up random people as accusers of wrongdoing, in order to gain advantage for their own candidates, so let's not be too hasty.

Edit to add: AOC really has your knickers in a twist, doesn't she. I think that's because she is (1) a lot smarter than you, and (2) a lot smarter than Donald Trump. Granted, that's a pretty low bar, but still...

Black Democrats have voted for over 50 years for a party that has kept them enslaved since slavery was abolished

Maybe that’s because racist rhetoric and a chief with an appalling record on race don’t seem to be the best choice for African Americans.

@K’Zad Bhat

I am old enough to have been a college student in the 1980s and the racism of 1984 was very different from that of the 1960s. Attitudes had changed some way even from ten years previously. I can assure you that in my experience that was absolutely not “just how it was.” Northam, who was not some high school kid but a graduate in med school, should have known full well the offense he was causing.

The excuse “it was wrong but it was a long time ago” doesn’t work because a) the 1980s were not the 1960s or even the 1970s and b) unlike Neeson, Northam did not confront his own behavior and seek help.

I am very willing to castigate myself for my own shortcomings but a) I am a private citizen and don’t seek to represent the people of Virginia (or anywhere else); and b) have nothing in my past as egregious. I’m not saying that Northam should resign but he needs to take a very hard look at himself.

The parties changed demographics in the 60s. Nowadays the Democrats are trying to keep to a higher standard of not being fucking racist assholes.

@Hasan Prishtina

You were in college in the 1980s in one location . . . Northam in another. The very fact that the yearbook has a man in blackface and a man in a KKK robe together shows me the culture of his school was very different from yours, unless you look back at your yearbook and find the same thing. In other words . . . not all the country made the shift to fully recognizing how horrible things really were at the same time.

All I wanted to really mention was that each of us has to learn . . . each, not all at once. If it was all at once, there'd never be a disagreement. Yes, Northam was wrong, and yes, his apologies sound hollow based on other aspects of how he's acting. But even before he could respond, so many people wanted him out of office, without even trying to look at whether this is his standard attitude, or just the stupidity of youth in a time and place where this was considered normal behavior. Notice the italics on place, because trust me, there's places now where things are just exactly the same. Mostly backwater podunks no one without significant inbreeding would even want to live, now, but they exist in the US.

They exist even more so in other places in the world, as well. Every ethnic group has its supremacists who believe they're allowed to do as they please, and other ethnic groups must submit, and quite a few places in this world are much more tolerant of this kind of assholery. Mostly because it's the supremacists who are in charge there.

Final conclusion from me is that Northam really doesn't quite understand how what was done was wrong, and resignation may be the best course of action for him and for Virginia. Certainly he should not bother to run in the next election, and keep himself out of the campaign of any other contender. Unless of course he gets involved in the campaign of a jackass who really shouldn't be in office in an attempt to sabotage him.

In 1980 the southern racists stampeded out of the Democratic party and into the Republic
party. And yet, the Cons call the Democrats racist.
