Outside Context Problem

Auschwitz is in Poland, but in fairness he probably would have known that if there were more Hitler statues

It's even dumber than that. The relics of the Third Reich that still stand are Mahnmale. Dachau still exists, but there is a lot of effort involved to contextualise it in history and explain its past. If you walk through Dachau and don't feel extremely uncomfortable there's something deeply wrong with you.

Germany does not have Mengele overlooking its hospital lobbies, or Hitler on a pedestal in the town centre.

A valid comparison would be if there was a historical monument consisting of either Colstons original slaving ships or accurate recreations of them, showing the appalling conditions his victims had to endure and historical data on who they were, where they came from and what happened to them. I do not think anyone would object to that, unless they really really wanted to protect a slavers reputation of course.

Now I'm just thinking of those Yelp reviews of plantation tours where people were angry that the tour guide had the audacity to talk about slavery.

Reveal investigated Civil War memorial sites that are receiving public funding and are revisionist/apologist. They should either give full, accurate historical accounts or be burned to the ground, or both.

This kind of stuff shits me no end. Not Tom, but the "I used to be a fan until blah blah blah", and "You just lost a fan!" bullshit.

People just don't realize how much the internet changed the game and how much the power balance between consumers and retailers (I'll use retail as an example as I'm sure we can all relate to it) have changed. People who yell "YOU JUST LOST A HUGE CUSTOMER" have always had a pretty good chance of being an entitled idiot, but it also used to sometimes WORK. Nowadays you're less likely to get anywhere with this strategy because while your $500 a month purchases may be a lot of money to you personally, the store has a line going out the parking lot PLUS an inbox full of people who all desperately need to get rid of a bunch of money, and deciding to get bogged down in replying and apologizing to people who don't get this is only ever going to give the complaint more exposure and get people to jump on the bandwagon so the best way to handle it is usually a jovial "Thank you, come again". Social media boycotts of this nature usually peak when the offended party hits post, and don't normally amount to anything more than some much needed catharsis.

That's not to say these kinds of complaints are never valid, just almost never.

Honestly that's one of my favorite things about being white, is just sauntering up to some white-rear end conversation or act and pointing out the absolute caucasity of it. People can get all blustery and stupid but they can't say I'm racist because, well, I'm white and I'll freely admit to doing or having had done those things in the past. It's good, wholesome fun to watch the lily white turn bright red.

This honestly isn't anything new, there are scads of rappers dating back to the 80s who take stock in NWO conspiracy theories which is one of the most classical forms of anti-semitism, Ice Cube has been spewing that garbage for ages.

Also he sucks poo poo as a rapper and was one of the most useless members of NWA.
