Quit saying race matter ye dumb twats. Focus on ones actions, not the color of their skin! -MLK- *more or less*
@spongeblade, "For, in the final analysis, our most basic common link is that we all inhabit this small planet. We all breathe the same air. We all cherish our children's futures. And we are all mortal."--JFK
I think the fact that a university professor was suspended because, in response to students asking for him to be give African students better grades, he quoted MLK on us all being equal; sums up how far we've strayed from MLK's dream.
It makes me sad personally.
@JCtheWise, wow... thats disgusting, being called a racist for saying people need to complete the course properly????
@JCtheWise, WHAT??? WHERE WAS THIS???
@G1ngerB0y, UCLA. I only found out about it because I rread both conservative and liberal news. Literally no liberal outlet has talked about it from what I've read.
That's why you gotta read both.
@JCtheWise, yeah they all have agendas and don't report some things cause of it. Liberal seems to be worse from my experience.
While looking I found another guy in CA that was also suspended or fired cause he wouldn't give a black kid an extension on a final exam do to the "hard times" because of the death of floyd. Apparently he has also recived threats.
People are making an impression alright 😡
@G1ngerB0y, tough times always bring out the best and worst in people.
@JCtheWise, for UCLA to even suspend him removes all credibility from that school imo like for them to even somewhat condone the thought that the color of someones skin should effect their grades in any way what so ever means that the grades of their students should be in question and not trusted
@JCtheWise, he was suspended not because he refused to comply, but because his response email to the student requesting the concessions was tone deaf and rude.
It was a stupid request, but that’s not an excuse for a condescending response.
@griffinstorme, honestly I don't see his response as tone deaf. If he just said no he would have been called racist so he responded with a quote. I also don't think it's condescending to quote a civil leader on racism when asked to do something that is clearly racist.
@JCtheWise, conservative news...liberal news??? that seems dumb, why can’t it all just be called “evil news”
@G1ngerB0y, I'm saying this as a california resident. when I saw that it happened at UCLA, I wasn't even surprised.
Reminds me of the Boondocks episode in which MLK didnt die. I think the events played out in that episode would play out in real life today.
@Hatori, "Will you ignorant n!ggas PLEASE shut the hell up?! Is this it? This is what I got all those ass-whoopings for? I had a dream once. It was a dream that little black boys and little black girls would drink from the river of prosperity, freed from the thirst of oppression. But lo' and behold, some four decades later, what have I found but a bunch of trifling, shiftless, good-for-nothing n!ggas; and I know you some of you don't want to hear me say that word. It's the ugliest word in the English language. But that's what I see now — n!ggas. And you don't want to be a n!gga. Because n!ggas are living contradictions. N!ggas are full of unfulfilled ambitions! N!ggas wax and wane, n!ggas love to complain, n!ggas love to hear themselves talk but hate to explain! N!ggas love being another man's judge and jury! N!ggas procrastinate until it's time to worry! N!ggas love to be late! N!ggas hate to hurry!"
@Sexy Homunculus, wtf?
@specialarea, It's what Martin Luther King said on the Boondocks.
@Link Silverblade, wow.
The only thing you should say to someone telling you that they are (race) is "....and?....whats your point?"
MLK Jr didn’t care for destruction of property, he cared about the destruction of people
Why can memes cuss but we cant?!💔
Some races are just better than others tho. We can all name the record holder for the hundred yard dash, but how many of you know the record holder for the mile? The hundred yard dash is the best race. It’s the white people of measuring speed
This guy get its
