Because there weren’t any people of color murdered on 9/11, right?
@Sexy Homunculus, and only white people are Americans, right? And only white people had slaves, right?
No joke guys… when I took my citizenship test and the 9/11 question came about which was “what happened on 9/11?” your answer: “a terrorist attack” and that was fúcking it! You didn’t have to know about New York, twin towers… none of that shít! I was here when the towers went down in school. Never going to forget that… kind of shameful that is all they want you to know… must be bc jet fuel melts steel…. And it was an inside job
@seeUpee, jet fuel can't melt steel memes
@seeUpee, you really had to take a citizenship test despite living here most of your life?
@Pat Myckok, Yeap! I sure did dude… took 8 long years to get a green card. When I finally did I had to wait another 5 more years… had to renounce my old citizenship too. I gladly did so… and so far, happiest day of my life! felt so proud to be called an American! 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸 🇺🇸
@seeUpee, "In the first place, we should insist that if the immigrant who comes here in good faith becomes an American and assimilates himself to us, he shall be treated on an exact equality with everyone else, for it is an outrage to discriminate against any such man because of creed, or birthplace, or origin. But this is predicated upon the person's becoming in every facet an American, and nothing but an American...There can be no divided allegiance here. Any man who says he is an American, but something else also, isn't an American at all. We have room for but one flag, the American flag... We have room for but one language here, and that is the English language... and we have room for but one sole loyalty and that is a loyalty to the American people."
- Theodore Roosevelt
Who are these white people?
@JewishXenu, stawmen mostly
If you can't laugh at both, I don't wanna hang with you. Everybody just wants to be angry at something nowadays
No one who uses these mean what they mean.
1. People make jokes about 9/11 all the time.
2. Slavery was over a hundred years ago 911 was only 20 years ago.
I'm white and I've heard a hundred 9/11 jokes and zero slavery jokes in my life. You're just arguing against who you want your opponents to be if you believe stuff like this. Feels desperate.
@NotSpam, feels desperate because you’re white
I bought a roku recently. I noticed on the Screensaver there are different things happening like a ufo abduction. There's also a titanic sinking next to an iceberg. Titanic was a real tragedy killing hundreds but it's old enough to just be a prop decoration. Tragedies can get old enough to just be a joke.
@Sluggernot, except the burning of the library of Alexandria. Pretty pissed about that one
@Sluggernot, the Titanic me be used in jokes, but it is not just a joke. There are people alive today who remember being told stories about that night by people who lived through it. There are people alive now who when told of these events saw the pain in the face of someone who lived through it. So even though all who lived through it have died, the pain and emotion of the memories still lives on
We should be able to joke about both. But why would 9/11 be more touchy?
I'd ask how many people alive today in the US have a personal connection to 9/11 vs how many have owned slaves?
Wow, you sure owned them, livy
But I laugh at slavery and 911 ? Alongside systemic prejudism , domestic abuse , elder disrespect and even .. no I actually don't laugh at that I won't say it.
