“So where is all the anger and angst over 97% of black folks being killed by other black folks? Who is at fault for that?”
Follow that bit of lovely text with a shared post full of long-debunked crime statistics, originally slapped up on the “Conservative Family” Facebook group. The top half of it was an image of a black woman holding a “Black Lives Matter” sign at a rally. Well gee whiz, who the hell posted/wrote that ill-informed, racist horsesh*t? Why, that would be Rich Kellum, Albany City Councilor. And while it is just one of many desperate eye-rollers that can be found on his very public Facebook page (you can shut that off, dude), it is sadly not the only overtly racist one.
In all fairness though, I did get a whiff of equal opportunity. One post really went after a bearded white guy in a stock photo. I guess he invested his time and money into studying something he cared about, rather than swinging a hammer. What an idiot. ::begins to distract you with mediocre juggling while sweeping my art degree under the rug::
On a far more entertaining note, Sweet Home cops were called last week to check out a gang tag. Yeah, in Sweet Home. When they got there, they were shocked by what they found… not Mad Dog or Viper, or Crazy 8 or anything like that, but Natalie. This can be seen as either the most hardcore gang nickname of all time, or… maybe it wasn’t actually a gang. In Sweet Home.
Unrelated to the area, but less depressing than anything I came across this week: http://www.huxtablehotness.com
Linn-Benton Backwash is a barely-coherent satire with a teaspoon of white-knighting, a pinch of bald-faced lies, and dash of pooptalk. In other words, don’t take it too seriously – nobody here does; especially the author.
