Can a cracker catch a break?
Can a cracker catch a break?
1. It's sad that whites can't be outwardly preps of their roots.
2. It's pathetic that they were using the night to make jokes about wore people.
3. Whoever is in charge of that teams promotions should probably be fired.
It DOES kinda suck for white folks tho, hella gotta tip toe around if u want to have outward pride for ur race. I'm very pro self and community pride, but whitr people can never properly have it without getting scrutinized. Y'all ****ed up so hard tho, these consequences ain't going nowhere for at least another 3 generations, haha!!!
Zanaboni resigned under protest when the higher ups with the Owlz wanted to continue on with the idiotic promotion.
Seems like a dumb promotion.

Because the actions of previous generations should be held against people...Originally Posted by nastynice:30075373
Current/past atrocities in Africa aren't held against black people. It's really backwards thinking.
Big shock this didn't go over well.
Would be it pretty bad if we did the same in reverse in regards to other situations, though that goes on plenty I suppose as well.

Exactly. My ancestors emigrated in the early 1900's from Germany and Norway. They had nothing to do with any of the disgusting actions of some white people, and settled in North Dakota and never employed anything close to a slave as far as I or my family knows. Yet I have several times been accused of being the real meaning of a cracker, while having no connection to that whatsoever. Not saying life is tougher for me or getting in that whole argument, but social reparations should be over and done.Originally Posted by Norm:30076427
And if u think past atrocities in Africa arent held against the people, then my guess is u've never been to Africa
Going to Africa has what to do with US society and it relating to this baseball game? I meant as far as social reparations, as if something is owed.Originally Posted by nastynice:30078054
Otherwise, I agree that preconcieved notions are terrible, but have you been to Africa, and experienced the same thing here?
With your previous comment about how "ya'll ****ed up so bad it's gonna continue for 3 generations", I could easily say the same thing towards Muslims after 9/11, but I'm not that ignorant. So don't complain about generalizations while making one.
And a little hint, you'd have no idea if your phone was tapped...this isn't 1947.

lol, I say I know my **** was tapped, microphonics than a mutha, if u want to think I'm wrong then go ahead
You are part of a society that not only did something wrong, but is right now doing a lot of things wrong. Pretend that away and focus on how victimized you are if you like, but people who are suffering under the racist system we currently have aren't going to see things your way. Those who suffered segregation as recently as a generation ago, those who suffered racial redlining when seeking housing, those who were prohibited from marrying people of another race -- some of those folks are alive today. This isn't ancient history. It's now, and it's a continuous legacy of unequal treatment that won't go away if folks us think we didn't and don't play a part in it. We do. And we aren't the victims here, as bad as some folks would like to be.
