Yep my dad, God rest his sole, told me this 40 years ago when I was a teenager. Pretty prophetic to say the least!

So, shortly after desegregation, your dad told you "well son, now it's everyone against the white man"? Sounds like a real good guy.

I certainly wouldn't say we're the most discriminated against...in fact I'd say we're probably the least discriminated against. However I think it's fair to call us the most openly hated in the media/socially. Much of the media has no problem covering racist/xenophobic Trump supporters (and they should be covering these guys), but when the absurd Mizzou protests happened, the only real criticism was coming from Fox and Breitbart. They also don't properly shame the terrible protests in Berkeley--borderline fascist movements which try to prevent people like Milo Yiannopoulus and, more recently, Ann Coulter, from speaking by creating violent environments. I don't particularly like either one of those people, but believe in their right to speak at these locations without facing threats of violence. I just wish there was a little more balance from news networks, on both sides.

While I loathe PC culture, I hate "the plight of the white man" just as much. The media may openly criticize white males more than any other demo at the moment, but in the real world we're still #1 in the rankings in pretty much every category--especially when it comes to things like getting the benefit of the doubt from the police. Heck, based on what I've read from most posters on this site, the vast majority of you are white males, living in the South, and were born before desegregation. Do you guys understand what level of ignorant, delusional, self-centered a-hole you have to be to be born in the time of segregation--a time when blacks weren't allowed to go to the same schools, were barred from universities, couldn't drink from the same water fountains, had to give preferential treatment to whites on buses, and in general were treated horribly by society--and now have the gall to cry "discrimination!" because the media is kinda ###### to us? Some of you need to pull your heads out of your asses.


Was hoping to see stephen a smith.***

The ones that got fired seem to be lower end good info reporters that just report on their speciality without any entertainment nonsense. Yet they are keeping clowns like Hill, Michael Smith, Stephen A, Max Kellerman, coachman and more

And willing to speak against the almighty SEC, maybe that was his downfall...


Kanell was truly one of the best, yet there were more negative


Posted: Apr 26, 2017 11:16 PM
 

comments about him than anyone else. Probably those SEC mouth-breathers he pissed off.
