17. what adds salt to the wound is

There are people who post bigoted crap who get caught by MIRT (aka, they who can lift the hood of the machinery and see stuff we cannot) and yet, when they get caught, there is no shortage of paladins and shieldmaidens coming to praise them, defend them, and make damned sure they are greeted with Palms and Roses thrown at their feet when they come back, even if they are dressed in a sock puppet shroud.

Regardless of whether you agree with the AA posters, they way they are treated here is sickening. I am going to use strong language here, but if fits like a tailor made suit.

There were place where AA's had some haven, but there could also be people, be they vigilantes, slumming brats, and just all around creeps can go there, knowing they could act like they ran the place, mistreat any of the local;s, and then ride off to their areas, which were often "sundown" towns, as in place where if an AA went to, they could end up jailed or killed. Call it Jim Crow, call it apartheid.

Call it DU, because we have made the AA forum a place where AA's know they are not only second class citizens, but there has been relishing of it, whitewashing, white tears. Seriously, do you think the Hillary and Bernie forums would not unleash banhammers? Hell, do anything remotely critical, anything that resembles the same venom some show on a daily basis, and you get banned. The AA's trying to engage with the rest, get yelled at, hidestalked, banned.

You do not have to agree with BLM to note that this is not the way to treat one of the democrat's last true bastions. Granted, it's not like they would vote for a Dr. Ben Carson of Condi Rice out of spite; no, that sort of spite to cut off you nose despite you face is , yes, another bastion of White and CLASS Privilege, as most of your people who say "I will just write in whoever I want on Election Day" know that they will survive the GOP admin they help put in better than most of the black and brown people will. However, after helping put in both Clinton and Obama, keeping a John McCain and a Mitt Romney from getting their hands on THAT button, we could at least show some damned courtesy, or at least stop using that privilege to harass them into hiding.
