Yeah what who is terrified of shoplifters? Unless you own the shop it's not your stuff they're nicking.

Yes, absolutely, 94% of black men are murdered by other black men, that seems legit.

I just need to know if this is an equal share among the other 6%, or if it's just like, Arsenio Hall being on a loving roll.

I had a girlfriend who told me that she once got scolded by management for yelling at someone who ran off with an entire cart of goods, because putting herself at risk of a confrontation was not worth any amount of stolen items. That's like the lowest possible bar to clear, and I'm contiously baffled at the amount of workplaces who don't even manage that.

"Without slavery, African Americans would be stuck in Africa" is a great take, because it not only assumes that modern-day Africa is a hellhole, but also conveniently forgets that Europe loving ravished the continent.

Also, the call to burn down Republican's houses, then get in their face, then use their yard as a trash dump, then get them fired, then kill where they sleep (in their burned down trash dump of a home?) seems like an odd order. If they just jumped right to the end they could save a lot of work.

Argh. Yes, we can say they were not built by slaves. They were built by craftsmen and by peasants who were unable to work their land because of the seasonal flooding of the Nile. The pyramids were a government work program for people who would otherwise not be able to farm and would starve. We know this because people wrote poo poo down, and we know how to read ancient Egyptian at least that well. The Egyptians were around for a real long time, an empire spanning three thousand years. They were not loving around.

Apparently at one point the workers went on strike because they weren't getting enough eyeliner, which was supposed to be part of their payment. I love this fact.

The eyeliner is a very ancient method for protecting the eyes from the glare of the sun. You'll still see American footballers do something similar, because proper sunglasses won't fit under their helmets. So it was for fair health and safety reasons.

Anyway, as I said elsewhere, the white stone façade of the pyramids was all completely torn off over the centuries to make other buildings (I suspect this Continental Telegraph person would be surprised to learn there ever was a white stone façade) and none of the other Seven Wonders are still standing. The Temple of Artemis was destroyed and rebuilt on multiple occasions. History disappears all the time.

This poo poo reminds me of what a different world I live in from these people. Like in my social circles (SA included ofc) that’s like the only poo poo these men are called. I’d get called out if I sung the praises of Thomas “goony rapist” Jefferson. Luckily we’re also able to recognize nuance, like “all [humans] are created equal” is a good idea even if TJ sucked, or “better Churchill than Hitler, but that ain’t saying much”

There's also a well-documented strike by tomb builders and artisans when their pay was held up under Ramesses III. Labor disputes and negotiating with striking workers are so ancient that they predate money in some civilizations.

I went back to school this year (boo boo the fool) and about 3/4 of my history class is international students from India, and holy poo poo do they hate Churchill. On the other hand, I'm learning way more about British colonialism than the class is teaching me.

No, shush, there was no significant human civilization in all of Africa and anything of note there was designed by aliens. Culture and such came only out of white Europe and we will literally invent any excuse to not acknowledge the cultures of brown peoples.
