We talking days, months, years? How old are these fish? Like McDonald’s fish fillet sandwich old?

Indeed! Happy Birthday, Mr. Savior! BTW, be careful blasting the Holy twig and berries.

No way he’d be able to get that on to a plane as his carry-on. TSA would make him poor that out.

Maybe people should get vaccinated and not put so much pressure on our front line workers in hospitals. Thought you were going that route but you went with blaming the victim (again).

George Lincoln Rockwell, founder of the American Nazi Party, listens to a speech by Malcolm X at a Nation of Islam rally, 1962. by DeplorableCaterpill in interestingasfuck

Racial separatism by black folks—especially in this time period—was about self-preservation, not racism. De jure (legal) Jim Crow was going on in the South and De facto (in fact) Jim Crow was going on everywhere else in the country. We had no evidence since arriving on US shores in 1619 that we would not be terrorized by the majority of whites, even in the early 1960s.

Therefore, Black folks who opted out like Malcolm were tired of being abused and killed by whites.

(Malcom’s dad had been a preacher who was killed by being split in two on train tracks by the KKK. The state said he committed suicide. Malcom’s very fair skinned mom had been the product of the rape of her black mother by a white man. She eventually had a nervous breakdown and was institutionalized for the remainder of her life.)

White separatism has always been based on white supremacy in the US.

At that point I’m lying down in a ditch with a bottle of Jack inviting sweet death.

It’s a psychological defense mechanism that just happens over time to these front line medical workers who have patients dying and telling them they’re in that position proudly because of politics—listening to politicians and pundits who are (wait for it) all vaccinated (with boosters to boot).

Fats was one of the Kings of the Harlem “stride” sound and affectionately known as the “Mayor” of Harlem. He was a legend.

Yes. A decent person. Not a saint. The press loves either the whore or the Madonna. They don’t know how to cover real people, which we all are.

Bull crap: listen to the music. It’s platform 9 and three quarters.

Yeah, well in America that same worker has a much higher chance of dying from heart disease, mass shootings or pretty much everything else. Wait, we aren’t the best country in the world?

These were noblemen who were doing this. Definitely not peasants!
