fish or click bait (how's life) wrote this on thread rolling "Is This Racist?" thread on board I Love Everything on Apr 20, 2015

For the past couple of weeks, one of my facebook friends (a high school buddy's spouse) has been posting up updates or comments like "they're not racist, they're just BAD POLICE. there are white police shooting black kids, black police shooting black kids, black police shooting white kids. why does everybody have to keep bringing race into this?" I've been biting my tongue pretty hard because she's my friends wife and like, I'm going to be charitable and imagine they are in disagreement about this already and hopefully having fights at home about it, but holy fuck.

I just defriended this chick because her fb posts have escalated into full-on shrieking "al sharpton don't you dare come to my city with your race baiting" and "now that the national guard is here, they won't be as patient with you as the baltimore pd has. if you don't get in line you will get shot!" I was all like, ok high school friend's wife whatever, but I really got no time for this shit.

i feel better about people who are outwardly racist today than i do about ppl go to baltimore unless they have to suddenly "disgusted" at the "violence" and posting things like this

like, it's a picture of buildings whose owners pay no property taxes, in the part of baltimore built for white ppl to feel safe in, that is now being patrolled by national guard. and you love police. it is so peaceful.

Feel so sick

, Tuesday, 28 April 2015 12:57 (four years ago) link

my neighborhood (like most neighborhoods) was totally unaffected as far as i know, therefore i am sick of people urging me and others to "stay safe", but i was still not able to sleep because i feel so bad about what happens here & everywhere. sirens kept me up and they never do.

computer champion (harbl), Tuesday, 28 April 2015 13:02 (four years ago) link

i need to go to work in the suburbs now

computer champion (harbl), Tuesday, 28 April 2015 13:02 (four years ago) link

i couldn't go to sleep last night either. teachers of my acquaintance were posting crazy things on facebook. i wish people could just refrain sometimes. also, buildings are not the city, you know? the people are the city. people can only live without justice for so long.

lotta high school friends on my fbook wall talking about "my city" like they haven't spent their entire lives in columbia

qualx, Tuesday, 28 April 2015 23:50 (four years ago) link

and yeah, i kept thinking last night how the words "be safe" sound either loving or reprehensible depending on who's saying it

qualx, Tuesday, 28 April 2015 23:55 (four years ago) link

Turns out white people from Severna Park down to Annapolis all secretly really loved Their City Baltimore right up until yesterday. Huh.

Three Word Username, Wednesday, 29 April 2015 06:31 (four years ago) link

xp: "be safe" like a hundred times in the comments every time a local news story would post about county cops going into bolster the city cops.

Somebody on twitter pointed out that curfew effectively means baltimore is a sundown town

, Thursday, 30 April 2015 12:17 (four years ago) link

bit of a stretch. the curfew is city wide. even my whitebread neighborhood becomes a ghost town at 10.

I'm sure that was the goal?

Fuck, EVERYbody loves David Blaine.

how's life, Thursday, 30 April 2015 13:16 (four years ago) link

i’m saying the city effectively shuts down across the board at 10 and that is not really what a sundown town is. like, yeah, i see how you can maybe bend it that way, but it’s an imperfect analogy at best.

Oh, Baltimore!
Have you forgotten who you are?
You're the place of Babe Ruth, Brooks Robinson and Jim Palmer.
You're Johnny Unitas, Sugar Ray Leonard and Reggie Jackson.
You're Esskay Hot Dogs, Berger Cookies and Phillips Crabcakes.
You're The Star-Spangled Banner.
You're the Raven, never flitting, still sitting.
You're Francis Scott Key and Edgar Allen Poe.
You're Blue-crabs, Bertha's Mussels and Natty-Boh!
You're Cab Calloway, Billie Holiday and Mama Cass.
You're Frank Zappa, David Byrne and John Waters.
You're Fort McHenry, Camden Yards and the USS Constellation.
You're The National Aquarium, Penn Station and Harborplace.
You're Johns Hopkins, Loyola and Md Institute of Art.
You're Mt. Washington, Federal Hill and Fell's Point.
You're The Owl, The Hippo and The Cat's Eye.
You're as sweet as Domino Sugar and you're McCormick Spice.
Don't ever forget, you're everything nice.
Once upon a midnight dreary, Nevermore!
You're The Pride of Baltimore.
