School officials denounce racist petition that spoke of ‘supreme White race’

The top of a hateful petition that circulated at a high school in Anne Arundel County, Md. (Copy of petition provided by Anne Arundel County schools)

By Donna St. George January 10

A white supremacist petition that circulated at a Maryland high school on Friday described African Americans as a “scourge,” said they “invented” rape, stealing and basketball, and spoke of “the supreme White race.” School officials immediately denounced the document and began an investigation.

The petition, labeled Kool Kids Klan — its three K’s underlined in a thinly veiled reference to the Ku Klux Klan — has led school leaders to pledge “the strongest possible actions” against any students involved.

George Arlotto, schools superintendent in Anne Arundel County, condemned the document in a letter to parents, saying it was shared during lunch Friday at Arundel High School, in Gambrills, Md. Several students are believed to have been involved, he said, and at least two students signed the petition.

“I am shocked, dismayed, and quite frankly angered that such a piece of material would be produced, much less appear in one of our schools,” he wrote. “It is unconscionable to me how anyone could believe this material is anything but horrifying, and it has absolutely no place in our schools or school system.”

As others voiced similar reactions, Anne Arundel police on Monday afternoon began investigating what they called an “indirect threat” against the school of 2,089 students, made in a tweet. Police said the threat appeared related to the Friday incident.

“We don’t think that threat is credible, but we are taking it very seriously,” said Anne Arundel police Lt. Ryan Frashure.

Arundel High School’s principal sent home a letter to parents Monday saying that she was saddened and stunned “by the mere existence of the petition, to say nothing of the wording used in it.” But she also said she was equally heartened by the resolve of staff, parents, students and the community.

“The collective message has been clear: Arundel High School will not be defined by this incident,” Principal Gina Davenport wrote. “We will remain one community that celebrates our diversity.”

Davenport asked parents and students to join her at the school this week to discuss “where we as a community go from here.”

From Baltimore.CBSLocal.com on Wednesday, January 11:

Police Charge Student For Threat Made At Arundel High School

January 11, 2017 10:39 PM By Ava-joye Burnett

BALTIMORE (WJZ) — The Anne Arundel County Police Department has charged a 14-year-old girl with a juvenile citation for sending a threatening tweet related to Arundel High School.

Police began their investigation after Arundel High School officials told them about a suspicious Twitter account.

The account, named @KoolkidsKlanKkk, reportedly sent out a tweet that read, “We’re planning to attack tomorrow”.

This account used similar language to a racial petition that had been passed around Anne Arundel High School by the “Kool Kids Klan”.

Police worked with Twitter, and were able to identify the person who created the account and sent out the threatening tweet.

That person has been identified as a 14-year-old African American female who attends Arundel High School.

  1. Is this a Horrible Hate Hoax or an amusing satire by a spirited fourteen year old?

    If she hoped for a pompous, panic-stricken, mutton-headed response, she certainly got it.

    • Agree: G Pinfold
  2. Several students are believed to have been involved, he said, and at least two students signed the petition.

    But is the Tweet from the petition creators? And who signed it?

  3. How stupid do people have to be to still be falling for these hoaxes? I saw another story about a waitress who claimed someone wrote we don’t tip black people on her receipt. Shouldn’t the default reaction be it is a hoax until proven otherwise?

    I saw that waitress hoax, and it was all the less believable since the note read "great service, but we don't tip black people", which is doubly unlikely: nobody would leave a note in the first place, but if they did, they surely wouldn't compliment the service. The hoaxer couldn't help complimenting herself...

    I usually guess everyone knows it's a hoax (at least those with any knowledge of the situation, like the waitress's colleagues and boss), but they don't dare mention it for fear of being considered a racist, or because they are embarrassed to openly call the hoaxer a liar, or they think it's impolite to bring it up, the hoaxer might be having personal problems and we shouldn't exacerbate her problems by pointing out her hoax, etc.

    But the troubling thing is, a lot of normies just don't pay much attention, and so they don't quite realize that most (basically, almost all) such cases eventually turn out to be hoaxes. These people will then believe all of them, but aren't interested enough to follow up on any of them, and so the preponderance of hoaxes will only make it easier for them to swallow the next hoax.

    In a school scenario the administration has to appear mortified and deeply, deeply concerned. Any other reaction might cause problems.

  6. The Baltimore Sun, August 22nd, 2015

    “The state’s student population became majority-minority about a decade ago. Data show many districts in the Baltimore region — Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties — continue to educate fewer white students every year. In most cases, the number of students identified as African-American, Hispanic or Asian and students of two or more races has steadily increased.”

    The long-time President of the State Senate has a district that he keeps redrawing further and further south for himself as he moves farther and farther away from Baltimore (along with as many of his constituents as can afford to do so). Some call him the Senator from White Flight (but he can't be raaaaacist because he has the magic D).

    Correction, she is a White African American. We can’t let Whiteness off the hook here.

  8. This week in real news… Al-Jazeera released a story where an undercover reporter penetrates into the Israeli Lobby in England.

    Al Jazeera Investigations – The Lobby P1: Young Friends of Israel
    “In the first of a four-part series, Al Jazeera goes undercover inside the Israel Lobby in Britain. We expose a campaign to infiltrate and influence youth groups, including the National Union of Students, whose president faces a smear campaign coordinated by her own deputy and supported by the Israel Embassy.”

    “Al Jazeera Investigations – The Lobby P2: The Training Session
    In part two of The Lobby, our undercover reporter joins a delegation from the Israeli Embassy at last year’s Labour Party Conference. The programme reveals how accusations of anti-Semitism were made against key Labour Party members – and how a former official at the Israeli Embassy was upset when her background was revealed.”

    Investigative journalism – a dying art.

    • Replies: @Anonymous Nephew
    That's the series I referred to last week, when an Israeli Embassy staffer was filmed telling a Tory MPs aide which government ministers he'd like to see 'taken down'.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4098082/Astonishing-undercover-video-captures-diplomat-conspiring-rival-MP-s-aide-smear-Deputy-Foreign-Secretary.html

    An un-named minister from the Cameron years is quoted in the same piece.

    "Last month Theresa May, like David Cameron each year before her, spoke to the annual lunch of the Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI).

    She oozed praise for Israel as a democracy, spoke of the constant terrorist threat they face, and condemned the way that Palestinians supposedly incite violence and anti-Semitism.

    Her own policy that considers Israeli settlements on Palestinian land illegal received only a passing mention.

    The reason is clear: the Conservative Party wants pro-Israel donors’ money, and principle in the Government’s foreign policy has been relegated.

    Matters deteriorated further over Christmas after US Secretary of State John Kerry’s forceful condemnation of the extremism and conduct of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Israeli government.

    Instead of agreeing with his comments – which are identical to her own policy – she criticised Kerry.

    Behind this inconsistent and concerning attitude lies a serious and troubling problem. British foreign policy is in hock to Israeli influence at the heart of our politics, and those in authority have ignored what is going on.

    For years the CFI and Labour Friends of Israel (LFI), have worked with – even for – the Israeli government and their London embassy to promote Israeli policy and thwart UK Government policy and the actions of Ministers who try to defend Palestinian rights.

    Lots of countries try to force their views on others, but what is scandalous in the UK is that instead of resisting it, successive Governments have submitted to it, taken donors’ money, and allowed Israeli influence-peddling to shape policy and even determine the fate of Ministers.

    Even now, if I were to reveal who I am, I would be subjected to a relentless barrage of abuse and character assassination.

    The CFI is not affiliated to the Conservative Party. It is incorporated in a way that means it is not to transparent about donors. Yet it arranges for the support of MPs and funds regular visits to Israel which distort the truth. Cameron turned a blind eye to Israeli misconduct – if he ever cared about it – because he was persuaded any criticism would reduce Party donations.

    It now seems clear people in the Conservative and Labour Parties have been working with the Israeli embassy which has used them to demonise and trash MPs who criticise Israel; an army of Israel’s useful idiots in Parliament.

    This is politically corrupt, and diplomatically indefensible. The conduct of certain MPs needs to be exposed as the poisonous and deceitful infiltration of our politics by the unwitting agents of another country, which acts in defiance of international law, and whose government Kerry called its most extreme ever.

    We need a full inquiry into the Israeli Embassy, the links, access and funding of the CFI and LFI, and an undertaking from all political parties that they welcome the financial and political support of the UK Jewish community, but won’t accept any engagement linked to Israel until it stops building illegally on Palestinian land.

    This opaque funding and underhand conduct is a national disgrace and humiliation and must be stamped out."

    Furthermore, after all the attention these hoaxes have received and how desperate the media has been to make an example out of a non existent racist white diner, who would actually write a derogatory note on a credit card receipt that could easily be traced back to them?

    If I owned a restaurant, I would have all the wait staff sign a waiver that they understand if they ever post a customer's receipt to social media for any reason, they will be immediately terminated. The only problem with that would be they don't care enough about their jobs for that to be a deterrent.

    Toni Jenkins is her name. Embodying the too typical negro narcissistic personality disorder is her game. She's obese. She has the emotional facility of a 14 year old. She's Toni!:

    Jenkins was initially suspended after the picture of the receipt went viral on the internet. But she was reinstated after a number of prominent news outlets picked up the story. A website raised nearly $11,000 for Jenkins in a “Tips for Toni” campaign. The waitress used the money to buy a car.

    Or almost everyone around says it's a hoax, but the reporters writing the story don't quote any of those people, because it would mess up the story.
    , @Jack D
    A necessary ingredient in these hoaxes getting national attention is a reporter with an agenda, an Erdely type. If a hoax falls in the forest, does it make a sound? No, you need a megaphone to make a hoax - it takes two to tango. Often the people the reporter interviews are actually waving big red flags but the reporter drives right past them - she is wearing her ideological blinders. She interprets the facts in a way that fits the story that she wants to write. She ignores the ones that don't fit. She doesn't try to call up the "perp" whose name is right there on the credit card receipt (or "he did not respond to my attempts to contact him"). If the other waitresses or her boss are unenthusiastic about what a great waitress the "victim" is, that's interpreted as meaning that they are racists too - this poor woman not only has to put up with racist customers but racist bosses and racist co-workers too! Or if they make some ambiguous statement that is really damning her with faint praise, the reports fails to see that and interprets their mild endorsements as meaning she is another Saint Rosa Parks.

    It depends what subtlety. They had no problem exquisitely parsing Hillary's rationalizations for why it was ok to keep top secret info on an unsecured server in her basement, or on how it is possible for a person to be a white Hispanic if he kills a black person but otherwise he is just Hispanic (so at the moment when he pulled the trigger, for an instant George Zimmerman was like Schrodinger's Cat, white and not-white at the same time - only by observing whether the bullet hit or missed could we know which one he was), but when it comes to stuff like understanding jokes made by Republicans their powers of subtlety completely fail them and they cannot understand the simplest joke.

    Or as Upton Sinclair said, "It is difficult to get a man [woman/ person of undefined gender] to understand something, when his [her/their] salary depends upon his [her/their] not understanding it!"

    or as Orwell said,

    "Crimestop means the faculty of stopping short, as though by instinct, at the threshold of any dangerous thought. It includes the power of not grasping analogies, of failing to perceive logical errors, of misunderstanding the simplest arguments if they are inimical to Ingsoc [English Socialism], and of being bored or repelled by any train of thought which is capable of leading in a heretical direction. Crimestop, in short, means protective stupidity."

Winning over lots of downscale whites in the Midwest at the expense of a few votes in some leafy suburbs ended up being a good trade off.

    Or, perhaps, a thinly veiled reference to stereotype threat, vis-a-vis the correct spelling of Ku Klux Klan.

    This is Big Media we're talking about. The same people who say Jeff Sessions has Klan sympathies, because he once joked that he liked the Klan, until he found out they smoked weed, but BM is too (deliberately) stupid to know it was a joke. What do they know from "thinly veiled references?" If my life depended on BM correctly reporting on a subtlety, I'd go ahead and bend over and kiss my ass goodbye.

    I usually guess everyone knows it's a hoax (at least those with any knowledge of the situation, like the waitress's colleagues and boss), but they don't dare mention it for fear of being considered a racist, or because they are embarrassed to openly call the hoaxer a liar, or they think it's impolite to bring it up, the hoaxer might be having personal problems and we shouldn't exacerbate her problems by pointing out her hoax, etc.

    But the troubling thing is, a lot of normies just don't pay much attention, and so they don't quite realize that most (basically, almost all) such cases eventually turn out to be hoaxes. These people will then believe all of them, but aren't interested enough to follow up on any of them, and so the preponderance of hoaxes will only make it easier for them to swallow the next hoax.

    "The state's student population became majority-minority about a decade ago. Data show many districts in the Baltimore region — Anne Arundel, Baltimore, Carroll, Harford and Howard counties — continue to educate fewer white students every year. In most cases, the number of students identified as African-American, Hispanic or Asian and students of two or more races has steadily increased."

    I agree that a lot of the denunciations are just self-protection for white administrators. You can tell who the true believers are if they cancel classes the next day so that the students can have a "conversation about race", i.e. struggle sessions where the students can be re-educated against the white patriarchy. What is really amazing is that they are completely oblivious to the fact that they are working from the Maoist playbook. In the '60s radicals consciously patterned themselves after Che or the Chairman but these folks deny their Marxism even to themselves.

    This week in real news... Al-Jazeera released a story where an undercover reporter penetrates into the Israeli Lobby in England.

    Al Jazeera Investigations – The Lobby P1: Young Friends of Israel
    "In the first of a four-part series, Al Jazeera goes undercover inside the Israel Lobby in Britain. We expose a campaign to infiltrate and influence youth groups, including the National Union of Students, whose president faces a smear campaign coordinated by her own deputy and supported by the Israel Embassy."
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ceCOhdgRBoc

    "Al Jazeera Investigations – The Lobby P2: The Training Session
    In part two of The Lobby, our undercover reporter joins a delegation from the Israeli Embassy at last year’s Labour Party Conference. The programme reveals how accusations of anti-Semitism were made against key Labour Party members – and how a former official at the Israeli Embassy was upset when her background was revealed."
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vuk1EhkEctE

    Investigative journalism - a dying art.

    That’s the series I referred to last week, when an Israeli Embassy staffer was filmed telling a Tory MPs aide which government ministers he’d like to see ‘taken down’.

    http://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/article-4098082/Astonishing-undercover-video-captures-diplomat-conspiring-rival-MP-s-aide-smear-Deputy-Foreign-Secretary.html

    An un-named minister from the Cameron years is quoted in the same piece.

    “Last month Theresa May, like David Cameron each year before her, spoke to the annual lunch of the Conservative Friends of Israel (CFI).

    She oozed praise for Israel as a democracy, spoke of the constant terrorist threat they face, and condemned the way that Palestinians supposedly incite violence and anti-Semitism.

    Her own policy that considers Israeli settlements on Palestinian land illegal received only a passing mention.

    The reason is clear: the Conservative Party wants pro-Israel donors’ money, and principle in the Government’s foreign policy has been relegated.

    Matters deteriorated further over Christmas after US Secretary of State John Kerry’s forceful condemnation of the extremism and conduct of Benjamin Netanyahu’s Israeli government.

    Instead of agreeing with his comments – which are identical to her own policy – she criticised Kerry.

    Behind this inconsistent and concerning attitude lies a serious and troubling problem. British foreign policy is in hock to Israeli influence at the heart of our politics, and those in authority have ignored what is going on.

    For years the CFI and Labour Friends of Israel (LFI), have worked with – even for – the Israeli government and their London embassy to promote Israeli policy and thwart UK Government policy and the actions of Ministers who try to defend Palestinian rights.

    Lots of countries try to force their views on others, but what is scandalous in the UK is that instead of resisting it, successive Governments have submitted to it, taken donors’ money, and allowed Israeli influence-peddling to shape policy and even determine the fate of Ministers.

    Even now, if I were to reveal who I am, I would be subjected to a relentless barrage of abuse and character assassination.

    The CFI is not affiliated to the Conservative Party. It is incorporated in a way that means it is not to transparent about donors. Yet it arranges for the support of MPs and funds regular visits to Israel which distort the truth. Cameron turned a blind eye to Israeli misconduct – if he ever cared about it – because he was persuaded any criticism would reduce Party donations.

    It now seems clear people in the Conservative and Labour Parties have been working with the Israeli embassy which has used them to demonise and trash MPs who criticise Israel; an army of Israel’s useful idiots in Parliament.

    This is politically corrupt, and diplomatically indefensible. The conduct of certain MPs needs to be exposed as the poisonous and deceitful infiltration of our politics by the unwitting agents of another country, which acts in defiance of international law, and whose government Kerry called its most extreme ever.

    We need a full inquiry into the Israeli Embassy, the links, access and funding of the CFI and LFI, and an undertaking from all political parties that they welcome the financial and political support of the UK Jewish community, but won’t accept any engagement linked to Israel until it stops building illegally on Palestinian land.

    This opaque funding and underhand conduct is a national disgrace and humiliation and must be stamped out.”

    That's especially true about the KKK Kids story - the denunciation by the school administrators was WAY over the top. The KKK Kids are the WORST people on earth! They are WAR CRIMINALS! TWO people have signed their petition! This will not be tolerated! They must be hunted down and eliminated!

    Before the election, this could be excused as rounding up the stragglers. They thought that they had tamp down the fires of the white male patriarchy and were just stomping out the last embers. Extremism in defense of the Narrative is no vice.

    The other aspect of this is kabuki theater for the minority parents, especially the "activist" ones (mostly black parents, or actually mothers since the fathers are rarely around, are completely indifferent to what goes on in school unless there is a racial "disrespect" angle - they are notorious for NOT showing up on parent-teacher night). If you are a flak catcher that is concerned about getting mau-maued (to use Tom Wolfe's terms) the best way to quiet things down is to prove that you are a convert to the Cause and get ahead of them. Before they can denounce YOU for being insufficiently "concerned" and ask to have a "conversation" with you, you come out and make a bigger show than they could have hoped for, so they can't have anything to complain about.

    I don't know what the demographics are in this particular school but the overall trend is majority non-white so it is only a matter of time before the parents demand a school administration that "looks like them". As we saw in Ferguson, there is often a lag between a city going minority and its government workforce becoming mostly minority. So if you are a white administrator hoping to hang on until you can start collecting your pension, this is good insurance.
  57. My favorite example of this kind of propaganda was this Jap Jem from WWII. The Japanese wanted to turn the Filipinos against the US, so they dropped leaflets over the Philippines with the following message:

    Guard Against Venereal Diseases

    Lately there has been a great increase in the number of venereal diseases among our officers and men owing to prolific contacts with Filipino women of dubious character.

    Due to hard times and stricken conditions brought about by the Japanese occupation of the islands, Filipino women were willing to offer themselves for a small amount of foodstuffs. It is advisable in such cases to take full protective measures by use of condoms, protective medicines, etc.; better still to hold intercourse only with wives, virgins, or women of respectable character.

    Furthermore, in view of the increase in pro-American leanings, many Filipino women are more than willing to offer themselves to American soldiers, and because Filipinos have no knowledge of hygiene, disease carriers are rampant and due care must be taken.

If you are a flak catcher that is concerned about getting mau-maued (to use Tom Wolfe’s terms) the best way to quiet things down is to prove that you are a convert to the Cause and get ahead of them. Before they can denounce YOU for being insufficiently “concerned” and ask to have a “conversation” with you, you come out and make a bigger show than they could have hoped for, so they can’t have anything to complain about.

    I don’t know what the demographics are in this particular school but the overall trend is majority non-white so it is only a matter of time before the parents demand a school administration that “looks like them”. As we saw in Ferguson, there is often a lag between a city going minority and its government workforce becoming mostly minority. So if you are a white administrator hoping to hang on until you can start collecting your pension, this is good insurance.

    This is a rather brilliant explanation for why the reaction to these hoaxes is always hysteria beyond all measure of proportion with the chances that the hoax is actually real. They need to immediately witness for their own diversity credentials.

    Well done.

    I saw that waitress hoax, and it was all the less believable since the note read "great service, but we don't tip black people", which is doubly unlikely: nobody would leave a note in the first place, but if they did, they surely wouldn't compliment the service. The hoaxer couldn't help complimenting herself...

    I usually guess everyone knows it's a hoax (at least those with any knowledge of the situation, like the waitress's colleagues and boss), but they don't dare mention it for fear of being considered a racist, or because they are embarrassed to openly call the hoaxer a liar, or they think it's impolite to bring it up, the hoaxer might be having personal problems and we shouldn't exacerbate her problems by pointing out her hoax, etc.

    But the troubling thing is, a lot of normies just don't pay much attention, and so they don't quite realize that most (basically, almost all) such cases eventually turn out to be hoaxes. These people will then believe all of them, but aren't interested enough to follow up on any of them, and so the preponderance of hoaxes will only make it easier for them to swallow the next hoax.

    A necessary ingredient in these hoaxes getting national attention is a reporter with an agenda, an Erdely type. If a hoax falls in the forest, does it make a sound? No, you need a megaphone to make a hoax – it takes two to tango. Often the people the reporter interviews are actually waving big red flags but the reporter drives right past them – she is wearing her ideological blinders. She interprets the facts in a way that fits the story that she wants to write. She ignores the ones that don’t fit. She doesn’t try to call up the “perp” whose name is right there on the credit card receipt (or “he did not respond to my attempts to contact him”). If the other waitresses or her boss are unenthusiastic about what a great waitress the “victim” is, that’s interpreted as meaning that they are racists too – this poor woman not only has to put up with racist customers but racist bosses and racist co-workers too! Or if they make some ambiguous statement that is really damning her with faint praise, the reports fails to see that and interprets their mild endorsements as meaning she is another Saint Rosa Parks.

    In a school scenario the administration has to appear mortified and deeply, deeply concerned. Any other reaction might cause problems.

    I think everyone realizes 3/4 of these incidents are bogus - and some of them are so crudely executed that they could be dismissed outright…but you need to mouth the correct words and go through the correct motions to protect yourself.

    I agree that a lot of the denunciations are just self-protection for white administrators. You can tell who the true believers are if they cancel classes the next day so that the students can have a “conversation about race”, i.e. struggle sessions where the students can be re-educated against the white patriarchy. What is really amazing is that they are completely oblivious to the fact that they are working from the Maoist playbook. In the ’60s radicals consciously patterned themselves after Che or the Chairman but these folks deny their Marxism even to themselves.

    Or, perhaps, a thinly veiled reference to stereotype threat, vis-a-vis the correct spelling of Ku Klux Klan.

    This is Big Media we're talking about. The same people who say Jeff Sessions has Klan sympathies, because he once joked that he liked the Klan, until he found out they smoked weed, but BM is too (deliberately) stupid to know it was a joke. What do they know from "thinly veiled references?" If my life depended on BM correctly reporting on a subtlety, I'd go ahead and bend over and kiss my ass goodbye.

    “I am shocked, dismayed, and quite frankly angered that such a piece of material would be produced, much less appear in one of our schools,” he wrote. “It is unconscionable to me how anyone could believe this material is anything but horrifying, and it has absolutely no place in our schools or school system.”
     
    Damn, dirty racist Blacks! This guy's almost got me reaching for the pitchforks and torches (I keep a pile of each to hand).

    That's especially true about the KKK Kids story - the denunciation by the school administrators was WAY over the top. The KKK Kids are the WORST people on earth! They are WAR CRIMINALS! TWO people have signed their petition! This will not be tolerated! They must be hunted down and eliminated!

  68. Only took one day to uncover yet another b.s. race hustle. White America has been browbeaten by the BLM crowd and their ass-licking white acolytes (i.e. The Rodham Woman) to the point that only a borderline white psychotic would risk pulling a stunt like this. Windbag Sharpton helped set the standard with the Tawana Bawana Brawley scam.

    How stupid do people have to be to still be falling for these hoaxes? I saw another story about a waitress who claimed someone wrote we don't tip black people on her receipt. Shouldn't the default reaction be it is a hoax until proven otherwise?

    I saw that, the handwriting sure looked like a girls and IMHO white woman don’t do shit like that

  70. Expect a lot more such hoaxes by teenagers.

    Unless adolescents have changed beyond all recognition, this is too cheap and obvious a way to piss off the adults to pass up.

    Yes. I wonder if her colleagues and boss recognized the similarity to her own handwriting. Yet they still can't call the emperor naked for fear of being called racist.

    Yes, on of the most truly racist, horrific acts in modern society is to denounce fake racism. Denouncing fake racism is the silent killer of all racist idealogues and must be responded to with ferocity.

    I think this really was a 'hoax', a childish prank, as pointed out in the first comment. There are other cases where the term 'hoax' just trivialises what is really a nasty piece of political opportunism. The expression 'false flag operation' would be more appropriate in those cases.

    I think this really was a ‘hoax’, a childish prank

    Yeah, but can you imagine what would have happened if the prankster had been white? The kid would be convicted on hate crimes charges and transferred from juvenile hall to an adult prison at age 18… he’d probably be labeled a “terrorist” and a mental defective and forced to undergo re-education as part of his sentence. They’d destroy his life…

  76. but when it comes to stuff like understanding jokes made by Republicans their powers of subtlety completely fail them and they cannot understand the simplest joke.

    The best part is the honorless dogs who where there at the time, heard the laughs and knew full well it was a joke, but stripped it of its context and passed it on anyway. They’re the ones who should be run out of public service. To quote Jack Rackham, “thank you for your service.”

    Patron may have been a White person with extensive employment experience waiting tables or delivering food who was operating under the logic of tit for tat

    I’ve said that Whites should start tipping Black servers less, to reciprocate for Blacks who tip less, but that didn’t go over well with the commentariat. I can understand the concerns over individual fairness, but I’m a big picture kind of guy. Maybe a compromise would be to make Black servers ineligible for anything beyond the minimum, and give the proceeds to non-Black servers.

    Or almost everyone around says it’s a hoax, but the reporters writing the story don’t quote any of those people, because it would mess up the story.

    Yeah, it’s not a new observation that on many topics, the media’s job is to avoid and ignore the facts, so they can report the story.

    Dude admits he just got trolled, and yet he’s clueless.

    Alternatively, he’s entirely clued-in, and signalling as much – “we take her lying seriously.”

    I’ve tried to follow up on the NY Giants fullback, Nikita Whitlock, who claimed he was twice robbed and vandalized, KKK / Trump graffiti, other bullshit. Everyone here knew it was a hoax, but the NYT, nor anyone else, has done a follow up, as far as I know. We are going to be inundated with this nonsense for 4 / 8 years. The first 100 times I can get a laugh from it, but this joke is getting old real fast.
