Gardening while black? Must be a paedo!

https://www.essence.com/news/gardeni...ng-a-pedophile

Quote:
According to the Detroit Metro Times, the incident unfolded throughout 2017 into early 2018. Peeples believe that the women – whom he identified on GoFundMe as Deborah Nash, Jennifer Morris and Martha Callahan – did not like his project in the park that was located across the street from Nash’s home.

The women began to call the police about him, but after the police wouldn’t respond to allegations of illegal gardening (like, how, Sway), the women escalated their behavior, accusing Peeples of serious allegations. At one point the women accused Peeples of threatening Nash with a gun in the park, in another incident they accused him of taking part in a drive-by shooting. In another particularly horrific incident, the women waited until Peeples had children with him working in the garden and accused him of being a pedophile.

...

“[The three white women] should be sitting at the defendant’s table for stalking and harassment charges, not Mr. Peeples,” Judge Bryant said at a hearing. “This is disgusting and a waste of the court’s time and resources,” she added before granting the defense’s motion for a directed verdict, which ended the case before it went in front of a jury.”

The racists now control the federal government; of course they feel emboldened and are acting out more. It's only going to escalate from here.

This right here. The Tiny-Handed Tyrant still believes his predecessor wasn't a US citizen and that five teenage boys that have been completely exonerated are still guilty of rape and should be executed. He's called those that have shot at and beaten black people "very fine people". Of course the shitheads think this is ok - America elected their drunken uncle to the highest office.

Oh, this country's just getting started.

I warned back on election night that this country was going back to the Jim Crow era. Understand that the assault on voter rights isn't just an attempt to keep blacks from voting; it's the first step in an attempt to restore the white pecking order, along with immigration restrictions. People don't see it now, but in about 5-10 years time, the results will be more obvious in some regions of the country.

It's not Trump, it's whose supporting Trump. In a sense, American capitalism, American oligarchy depends on racial conflict. It needs race-based hierarchy and racial conflict in order to survive. If ordinary folk are spending their time fighting each other, they're spending less time holding the oligarchs accountable and demanding a fairer society. Expect this not only to continue, but to worsen.

Yes, but the UK has probably done a better job of dealing with racism than the US, which still uses a constitution that is inherently racist and established a racist economic, political, and social framework. And we're naive if you think we've somehow improved the constitution to remove the stains of racism. They're still there, still obvious, if we would just acknowledge it.

Just a couple samples of the o.p.’s genuine concern for the rights and recognition pf all peoples:

Next shithole: South Africa?
South Africa going the way of Zimbabwe?

I rarely bother enough to pay attention or track particular posters unless they have some special are of knowledge or expertise I find interesting, bit when I see the o.p. authoring a thread I know that it will be something of breathtaking obtusity and astonishing stupidity. He is like the parody of a self-entitled Englishman with a monocle making pronouncements about the ‘proper way’ of conducting one’s self while passive-aggressively admonishing the waitstaff for the quality of the food by leaving an “insult tip”. He also has a fixation on rape and false accusations, and making sure that men don’t get the short straw in issues of gender equality because that is a real problem in modern society where men are routinely denied occupational and educational opportunities.

TL;DR: the o.p. is a disingenuous idiot who pretends concern for inequality and bigotry while often tacitly expressing the same.

This thing has an Alice's restaurant feel to it.

I can imagine the defendant in jail, explaining his charges to desperate criminals in the holding pen:

"Illegal gardening.....and creating a nuisance."

I’m sure the OP thinks he stumbled on some sort of cataclysmic “gotcha” for liberals — hey, here’s a story about white women falsely accusing a black man of crimes.

Because his stupid right wing bubble pea brain has convinced him that ALL liberals think every accusation made by a a white woman is true.
Because his stupid right wing bubble pea brain has convinced him that ALL liberals think black men are always innocent of everything.

So this idiot thinks he’s going to make everyone’s heads explode with his brilliance. Yawn.

And Quartz, go fuck yourself.

Thank you for displaying your ignorance. Do you know that those African slaves were sold to European slavers by Africans? Do you know that slavery in the Old World was endemic all over until very recently? Do you know that the experience of enslaved Africans was nothing special? Read up on Roman slavery sometime. Or Persian slavery. Or Chinese slavery.

Indeed you might care to read up on the Arab slave trade on the East coast, where male black African slaves were routinely castrated - by the African slavers - before sale to the Arabs.

That's mostly my fault. The main reason is that I'm an asshole, but there are a few others. I've spent five or six years of my life in the UK. Obviously, I could say a lot of nice things about it, but where is the fun in that?

Americans are ridiculed, fairly, for our ignorance of history. But man, I've been lectured way too many times by smug, arrogant Brits who have a remarkable disconnect from the reality of British colonialism. Glass houses, stones, etc..

Quartz is making the argument that the United States is fundamentally flawed at its very basis in the Constitution (which, as far as it goes, is actually a rational statement that could be supported by evidence) but advances the notion that somehow racial prejudice is a uniquely American problem even though Great Britain has long standing systemic problems with racism and socioeconomic divides and conveniently ignores the fact that the entire British Empire was based on the trade of African slaves and opium. Of course, essentially every European nation and colony has some cross to bear with regard to gross mistreatment of indigenous peoples, and Britain is not the worst by far. But you can thank the disingenuousness of Quartz in garnering a response based upon his selective outrage about how America alone has manifest problems with racial inequality and that bizarre, rambling justification for how the British were simply innocent explored caught in the middle of a slave trade forced on them by West African tribes that they were just too polite to turn away.

But beyond that blind spot, Quartz is just generally a misogynistic, racist shit who is also a thin-skinned provocateur who can't accept the abuse he doles out on others, so it is schadenfreude to catch him at the height of obtuse hypocrisy.

I've taught in the California Public School System for over 32 years. In doing so I've determined that 1) Ron White is right: You can't fix Stupid. B) There is a gene in the Scottish people that make them prone to Fucknuttery. iii) Quartz is a common mineral that may look good on occasion, but is generally worthless. ٤) Knob Creek Single Bottle 115 Proof Rye makes a not-inadequate Manhattan.

The only actual "slagging off" of the UK I see is the kind that is jovial and good fun. No one actually believes Scotland is horrible for haggis, for instance. The rest is just a response to the OP's not so humorous slag off of the US as being uniquely racist, while ignoring his own country's racism.

There is something particularly irritating/infuriating about someone who uses the evils of racism to slag off a country. It honestly feels like trolling to me.

The UK has serious issues with racism, many of which it's in denial about.

But that said, can we just take one minute to point and laugh at the frankly pathetic "crowd" the EDL managed to generate for it's latest march in Manchester - https://metro.co.uk/2018/10/20/tiny-...ester-8059140/

The 2018 followup to the violent 2017 “Unite The Right” rally in Charlottesvile last year could be chariably described as ‘pathetic’, but that doesn’t mean racism and inequality is on the wane in the US; just that the bigots realized that mass oublic displays get more negative press than positive.

Can't see Rees Mogg trying to open a casino, but thrashing a street urchin to death for refusing to go up his chimney is definitely a possibility.
