  2. Hey. EMMIT TILL fans...what about the WHITE KCUR reporter killed in her home?

    ReplyDelete
  3. Yes, let's remember the Emmitt Till tragedy that took place in 1955 instead of bothering ourselves with the record homicide rate in KCMO in 2021.
    The reality of black people killing one another at an horrendous rate is too embarrassing, so let's scroll into the distant past in the hope of finding someone else to blame.
    Willful ignorance.

  8. There will never be enough minority Oscar winners. The Libtard media can't get enough of judging everyone by the color of their skin. It's the Demoncrapic playbook while MLK rolls in his grave because it goes against everything he stood for. This is like saying the NFL, MLB and NBA need to be proportional to the race percentages in America or else someone is racist against those underrepresented.

    It must be sad Chimpy, to wake up daily, knowing all you have to offer are inane comments on other folk's posts. You contribute nothing, and your childish satire is lacking any hint of being clever. Obviously unemployed, your future is pretty dim. You must be envious of those you ridicule, knowing they have so much more in their lives that's positive than you'll ever achieve. Well, it's probably time for you to start with the “weirds” and your pathetic pussy ^^marks. Go up the tree and have a free flea brunch off mommas hairy back, then take a break so you can come back to the blog and resume your life's work.

  12. "Chauvin screwed up and is guilty of something. But, how can you be convicted of murder AND manslaughter for the same death? That doesn't make sense."

    And yet a jury who listened to the entire 14 day trial disagrees unanimously. Weird.

  13. 8:29 never had a father in the home. You can definitely tell. Say a prayer for him, everyone. It's obvious he needs it. Amen.

  14. ^^^He probably had a father in the home. His problem is his brain is wired wrong. He's so bitter about his squandered life that he lashes out at everyone else. No doubt his Mom and Dad dislike him as much as the rest of us.

  15. ^The jury convicted Chauvin after BLM was protesting and threatening outside the courthouse.

    U.S. Representative Maxine Waters threatened violence against the jurors and City.

    Plus, President Joe Diaper Biden and Vice-President Heels Up Harris said to convict Chauvin.

    The police officer was basically lynched by a mob.

  16. The only decent thing said at the Oscars last night -- from Tyler Perry:

    “I refuse to hate someone because they’re Mexican or because they are black or white. Or LGBTQ. I refuse to hate someone because they’re a police officer or because they’re Asian. I would hope we would refuse hit hate. And I want to take this humanitarian award and dedicate it to anyone who wants to stand in the middle. Because that’s where healing, where conversation, where change happens. It happens in the middle. Anyone who wants to meet me in the middle to refuse hate and blanket judgment, this one is for you, too,” he said.

  21. Libs like to talk about White Privilege but the real concept is White Liberal Privilege. It pops its head up again with Aviva Okeson-Haberman. Lefty, white, likely woke reporter for public radio. Her murder has been covered more than the other 46+, mostly black people who were murdered in KC this year.

    This is just like when that lawyer in Brookside was murdered. All press drops what they are doing to cover the white liberal who was murdered.

    White Liberal Privilege is a thing.

    Emmett Till's father, Louis would have been proud of his son's fame. Louis Till and another African American soldier raped and murdered an Italian woman in 1944. The two were tried, convicted, and hanged.

    1. No no! Don't talk about that, or the record of general cowardice among black regiments in WW2. Black privilege means our ghetto scholars are history's oppressed heroes and nothing else!
