Yo did this sirhorns guy graduate from UT?? If so they need to give me some money back. They’re letting mouth-breathing idiots like him get diplomas? Must have been back before they upped the qualifications to get in. Still, next time they call asking for a donation.... I’m going to ask them to look at his posts and let them know I can’t keep donating to a school that has morons like this representing us. It’s a bad look.

Well if you want to go back in history, the majority of slaves sold to the European slave traders were sold by fellow Africans. The tribes would fight each other and the victors would sell the losers.

Ahh the racist telling me that I’m not so much pro-black race. That I’m a Marxist. Yet he doesn’t know anything about my views outside of: I’m 100% pro-black. All day everyday. That I don’t think police should be allowed to kill people. That I will be voting for Biden. And I think he and Donald Trump are racists. Yet from that he can determine I am a Marxist. That’s fine. How about you come out for the closet and admit you’re a f##king racist??? Can you please do that. Thanks. 

 

If you were 100% pro-black, you'd be pretty ticked right now that a marxist movement has stolen your stage.

All those kids in Chicago that get killed every week and they do and say nothing. This wasn't a dead giveaway to you? Do THOSE black lives matter? Well, no, they don't. You and BLM kept your pie holes shut.

Your positions are an insult to any black advocate, who wishes for no special favors, reparations, etc., because such things insult their intelligence. 

Your position match those of a marxist, which Dennis Prager described yours to a T without ever having met you.

This upset you. It should have. You probably didn't even know your views were marxist.

Wait UT doesn’t call you for donations?? I sure do get calls and texts from them asking me to donate. Next time I will have to answer and ask some questions. Apparently I’ve been getting calls from people not from the university. And I just got a text today. I guess it’s an elaborate scheme.

I’m not a Marxist but I guarantee I would rather be that than a racist. Sucks to be exposed as a racist doesn’t it sirhorns.

Wait have I had conversations with this racist before for him to know my views on what’s happening in Chicago?? No he must have me confused with his “black friend”. He probably thinks we all look alike. And it’s funny an old racist thinks he knows what a black advocate thinks. Ta-Nehisi Coates, black advocate. Supports reparations. The biggest black advocate we’ve known, MLK, supported reparations. Yet this racist tells me my position insults black advocates?? Maybe the racist should stop watching white people talk about what black people want. Then he would stop saying stupid stuff like black advocates are against reparations. Next thing he will tell us the civil rights fighters were against affirmative action because. Because we should listen to a racist on topics of black advocacy?? 🤣😂😭

Come on man. Do better than this. He said he would pick a woman. He never said he was going to pick a woman of color. He said he would put a woman of color on the Supreme Court. And what’s the issue with saying you want to have a woman as your VP? If he wants to have a ticket that represents what our country looks like, that’s a good thing. He never said Harris wasn’t the most qualified. He never said she wasn’t the best for the ticket. Gotta do better man.

Quote

"Whomever I pick, preferably it will be someone who was of color and/or a different gender, but I'm not making that commitment until I know that the person I'm dealing with I can completely and thoroughly trust as authentic and on the same page [as me]," Biden said while speaking to a roundtable of black journalists.

 

Joe Biden will choose ‘woman of color’ as running mate by August

Quote

Joe Biden said Tuesday he had prepared a list of “women of color” for consideration to be his running mate in November — but that he wouldn’t announce a decision until August.

I do realize he was considering all women at one point.  Gretchen Whitmer was in consideration along with others as well.  My point isnt that none of are qualified.  I never said that.  I said it would have been better IMO to never say this upfront and just pick one of them and say among everyone I think this person is the most qualified.  Why confine it before the choice is named?  Just say "I have my pick and among all possible candidates I have chosen Harris.  She was more qualified than anyone else."  That would have looked better to women instead being the best choice among women

Again man, do better. I’m trying. I’m trying. But again you’re going with the standard BS. The first article you posted was from 2019 and he said he would like a woman of color but said he wouldn’t commit. The second article didn’t have a quote from Biden or his campaign saying that he has committed. You know why? Because he hadn’t. If you just did a search you would have seen articles written After the 6/30 one you posted about how he needed to pick a woman of color. Because he hadn’t committed to it yet. There was even talk a week or so before Harris was pick that Gov Whitmer was meeting with him and people. She was on air and didn’t deny she was meeting with him about the VP selection. If he had come out like you said and committed to selecting a woman of color. There would be no need to have her own to discuss that. Again man. I’m trying. But if you’re willing to lie or push nonsense like this. I don’t know that there’s a real dialogue to be had.

I added the paragraph after the post of links.  I have zero problem with a female president or vp.  You are right he was considering all women at one point.  Gretchen Whitmer, Amy Klobuchar, Kirsten Gillibrand, and maybe a few others.  He has always said that person must be "simpatico" with him.  My point was IMO it would have been better to just pick a woman after looking at all candidates, men and women, instead of narrowing his selection before hand.  Just my opinion.  It sends a stronger message to women.

I’m not a woman so I won’t pretend to know what would have been a stronger message. But the woman in my life didn’t care that it was announced it was a woman. They thought it was an obvious selection. The best VP candidates were women. Women want representation. Biden recognized that and he made the decisive choice to let it be known he would have a woman as his VP. If I know I want BBQ. I don’t need to consider other food options. I just need to know if I’m going to Franklins, Micklethwait, or Valentina’s. The reason is irrelevant.

 

And on a side note. I haven’t looked but does this board have a thread for places to try in the state?? That’s definitely something needed.

I made this comment because my wife said it to me when this was going on and we discussed it.  I can see her point. 

She also hates it when men buy flowers for their wives on Valentines day.  I know weird right?  I think so to but she has always said I would rather you buy me flowers on a random day than on the day you are supposed to because society says you should.  LOL

I guess I can see her point.

People are different. My girlfriend wants flowers on Valentines Day. Does make either woman right or wrong.

@hornsups Man I know we have tried to settle things between us in private messages but please stop calling people racist.  I know @Sirhornsalot. He is not racist at all.  Yea most of us here dont agree with Marxist ideas of BLM but we fully back the slogan.  Its mostly the socialism aspect that worries us.  Surely you understand.  I know from our talks you are not Marxist.

Just trying to calm things down guys.

As always we keep getting the lines blurred with regards to BLM, the racial equality and politics of the organization

Yes we have spoken privately. And I respect you for how you’ve handled things. But I can only judge him based off the things I see. He’s said things that are racist. He posted a racist picture that had to be removed. He didn’t acknowledge it or own up to it. So sorry but all I can do is call it how I see it. It doesn’t affect him me calling him that, just as his Marxist name calling doesn’t do anything to me. But if I seen racism, I’m gonna call it for what it is.

Anybody recognize who he's talking about here? lol

 

RACE

It is left-wing dogma that a black person cannot be a racist. Only whites can be racist. And, indeed, all whites are racist.

It is increasingly a left-wing position that when blacks loot, they are only taking what they deserve, or, as the looters often put it, looted goods are "reparations." A Black Lives Matter organizer in Chicago, Ariel Atkins, recently put it this way:

"I don't care if somebody decides to loot a Gucci or a Macy's or a Nike store because that makes sure that person eats. That makes sure that person has clothes. That is reparations. Anything they want to take, take it because these businesses have insurance" (Chicago Tribune, Aug. 17, 2020).

When a woman accuses a man of sexually harassing or raping her, the left's reaction is not, "Let us try to determine the truth as best we can." It is, "Believe women." One must automatically "believe women" because, on the left, it is not only morality that doesn't transcend race, power, class or sex; truth doesn't either. That's why leftists protest and riot whenever a confrontation between a police officer and a black person ends with the death of an unarmed black person. The police officer is automatically racist, and the death is automatically deemed murder. On the left, the concept of objective truth is increasingly deemed a form of white supremacy.

I don’t take comments from a racist serious sirhorns. You keep thinking I will change that stance and take you’re words seriously. It won’t happen. A racist like you will never mean shit to me. I could care less about you, your words or your opinions. If I knew were you lived I would have a beer with you and smash the glass over your head. Maybe that would knock some sense into you. 🤣
