Stupid shit you see on Facebook

I was really confused until I took a second look at what thread I was in.


#2308

desecrating = kneeling

got it.


#2309

black = bad

got that too.


#2310


#2311

Oh wow.


#2312

Fuck me.


#2313

But that’s not racism right, this is where someone tell me it’s just Republicans or Trump supporters and that somehow makes it different?


#2314

Could be? It’s not clear to me whether that graphic was intended to be a racist statement (black people == dogs) or to point out Trump’s racism (other presidents have dogs that they love, Trump calls black people dogs).


#2315

See, I initially read it that way too. But then I thought, that’s a really stupid way to make that point. Occam’s razor points directly towards some racist dipshit putting that together.


#2316

I had a similar journey “Is this a really weird way to call out the fact that Trump doesn’t have a White House pet? Wait…that would be a super racist way to call that out. Oh… it’s just racist.”


#2317

I suppose so. Trump’s Razor would say “If in doubt, the most racist explanation is probably the correct one.”


#2318

And the color of the dogs are just coincidence. The white house pets are not always brown and black.

I realize some might think I am reading into things… there is an ugly pattern of comparing black people to animals. It’s not knew and sadly it’s not rare. He has a whole host of people he’s not liked, not all of them are compared to animals, most aren’t even.


#2319

I lol’d


#2320

No, you’re not reading into things. This is what it is.


#2321

No doubt in my mind.


#2322

It’s not just you, it immediately stood out to me as well.

I find that image to be extremely offensive. I can’t even determine the intent other than pure, unadulterated racism. Even if someone anti-Trump cooked that up to try and point out Trump’s own racism, it backfired and taints anyone associated with it’s creation and distribution (@abidingdude excepted since he’s obviously bringing it to our attention because he feels the same way).

Ugh. Just…no.


#2323

But… Trump literally called her a dog. If Omarosa were white would y’all be scratching your heads in confusion?


#2324

If Omarosa was white would he have literally called her a dog?


#2325

If Omarosa was a man. . . .
