I think kids and even teens are sometimes held under too much scrutiny. They're still learning. They're going to say and do stupid stuff that will haunt their shower thoughts in their 30s. IMO most of it has no place on record.

I got called a racist for telling a black girl not to make TikToks in class. I wrote a lot more about it before deleting it in my better judgement. Extremely frustrating.

Why do Indians hate Indians?

If they'd just followed the British plan, which was to keep Indians away form Indians, all this could have been avoided.

Trying to teach these rude minority kids and it is infuriating. Of course white kids can be rude too but at the end of the day the minority kids are the ones who are going to have to be on their best behavior in the rest of their lives however unfair that might be. I can't explicitly explain this to them but even if I could I don't think they will be able to absorb it.

I try to explain to them the importance of hard work and acting with maturity. It goes nowhere. And that's really bad. They are going to grow up to be losers, criminals, etc.

Whole thing really makes me feel awful. So many layers. I am supposed to be the racially understanding and tolerant one but seeing the dysfunction up close and comparing it to the white kids makes me genuinely pessimistic. It makes me feel like Dilbert is right about how the thing most holding back non-white communities and countries isn't racism but instead the character of the people in those places.

Kids spend a lot of time with teachers, who should be expected to but can only do so much to pass on some of the values and a bare minimum work ethic most of their students will need later in life. But even if a teacher didn't even attempt to do their due diligence in this, the failure is not exclusively their own. The parents, culture, economics, politics, peers, and students themselves can be blamed to various degrees. Not to mention some of the limiting factors teachers work under irt curriculum, administration, rules.

Now that I am home I am less angry about the situation today. I have met some of the kid's parents and the ones I have met care. Probably overwhelmed and overworked trying to do their best. I am not a perfect person either.

Maybe stronger civic organizations (boy scouts, church, etc.) could have helped when they were younger. Getting involved in those probably did setup a lot of the older generation for success. But almost all American civic organizations discredited themselves over time.

I am aware that like the lady who stalks Sandy Hook parents, there are plenty of white people who don't have it together now and never did. All of those civic organizations in their golden years did little to improve many people in the 50's and 60's too. I am also kind of racist in the fact that I forget poor white people exist. In the NYC area, overt racism like on television isn't a thing but white people still overwhelmingly own all of the property, businesses, and leadership positions. Seems like the natural order of things and I do genuinely struggle to understand how a white person born into a prominent family with all of their support systems manage to fuck up their lives. The soft bigotry of high expectations.

I am at my town's Juneteenth event. First annual. Food is awful. A lot of black people selling trinkets at tents. The mayor and city council is here standing around eating hotdogs. The hotdog vendor is the only white vendor which seems fitting really.

I had two hot dogs and am eating some expensive fried fruit thing. It is not the worst food I ever had but I overpaid for it. I was going to save it for later but I saw a fat person I know and gave it to them instead.

I locked up my vape for this event. I still have a hour to go before I can go home and get high.

There is a stage. They are playing music but before had speeches and stuff. Did you know the drug war is a war against poor people? Wow, that's something.

I forgot it was Juneteenth, but then I realised it wasn't Juneteenth at all. Is it like a multi-day event in your town or did they just not want to schedule it on a Sunday? Some people go to church on Saturday.

The NAACP organized it. The head of the NAACP is a black pastor IIRC. So he gets them for two days if he makes them celebrate the new "holiday" on Saturday.

I wonder when the people who can't keep their morose bullshit out of their business will hop onto Telegram to complain about being canceled by the Radical Left. "People can't take a joke anymore!"

The plot twist would be if the person who put this up is actually Uncle Ruckus.

Nobody put a gun to their head and told them to close for the day.

One funny thing about the holiday somebody said on reddit "Imagine hating black people so much you are angry about a day off from work"

The paper taped to that window is instructive as to these people's mentalities. They don't know what the thing is, but they do know that it annoys them (or is supposed to annoy them), so they'll fall within a range of being passive aggressive to outright hostile about it.

In other cases, I'm not sure how someone could call themselves an American history buff and not be interested in these things.

When are they going to stop blaming the white people who bought them and blame the black people who sold them?

White people are the victims here.

Watched a few mins, bookmarked for a later evening. A lot was stuff relatively fresh in my mind that I'd already seen or heard discussed, especially recently when the whole Blazing Saddles censorship panic flared up. The people complaining about how Everyone These Days are too sensitive for Blazing Saddles or whatever, completely missing the point of the film.

When it comes up, I sometimes ask disgruntled white people if they feel a particular sense of loss that it's socially unacceptable for them to use a low class word. Like, go learn a new language or something. There are thousands upon thousands of words for you to pick up.

Why are some [white] people like this?

Look at the mouth of the fish. Bleeding and mutilated. It frankly looks like it died in absolute terror. Then you have this balding doofus showing it off like he is an outside cat bringing home a dead bird

On Reddit there was a meme made by a woman into internet dating. She said a lot of men's profile picture is them holding a dead fish or some other animal they killed.

Cave man shit. Like do you think women in the 21st century are desperate for a guy who could bring home a steady supply of unskinned dead animals?

And who the hell would watch this guy fishing for entertainment? Read a book.

Someone who partakes of meat (and gory photos/videos in general for entertainment purposes) should probably do a bit of introspection before ragging on a guy too much for a ghoulish fishing photo. I don't imagine the animals who put up with the factory farm conditions that goes into mac's microwave nuggies have very enjoyable lives. Even without the intervention of human cruelty and needless waste/pollution, the rest of nature is fairly brutal and gruesome.

While unpleasant (see ongoing research about fish and pain) being pulled out of the water by a hook in your face is probably among the lesser of torturous deaths available to fish. A deer is better off being double-lunged by a rifle-armed hunter than eaten alive by a wolf pack (never mind that the wolves going for the old and the sick is arguably better for the deer pop).
