Her snarkiness (and meanness) isn’t at people who ask “where are you from?”  It’s people who are told “New Orleans” and then say, “no no, where are you really from” or “where are you originally from”.  

One of my favorite stories was when she was in grad school and we had two icons who helped Ireland recover from The Troubles.  Both of them old Irish guys, one a Catholic and the other a Protestant, and both were leaders of the movement that resolved the conflict there.

They spoke and then met with students after class.  They did the “no, where are you originally from” on her.  These two 80+ year old white Irish dudes trying to figure out what she meant by “Blay-sian”, and her telling them, in a somewhat ghetto accent, “you ain’t never heard of black asians, foo?”  Just glorious.  They started apologizing and almost begging her forgiveness...and they are civil rights icons and she was just this short Asian grad student.  :lol:  

Stop holding out and post a pic!  If she looks anything like Karruche Tran or my baby mama Amerie, then watch out!:slick:

That was not a high five day for those of us who were alive. 

Did I ever tell you the time I talked to a guy who lived in Arlington Virginia that was at Ford's theater the night Lincoln was shot?  The man was was 5 years old at the time of the assassination. 

Were you assigned to the same classroom or something?

The inside joke is that her mother isn’t black.  She’s also Vietnamese.  She completely made up the “blay-sian” angle to screw with people.  :lol:

Those numbers seem really low to me based on other polls.  I’d like to know which poll is being cited here.

Just got caught up on the last 15 pages.  Which was basically worzone sharing a meme that he finally admitted he got from facebook to change the subject back to voting laws and ids, which means yall weren't discussing Trump telling women of color to go back to their country.

Scherie Murray, a New York businesswoman who immigrated from Jamaica as a child and is active in state Republican politics, is launching a campaign Wednesday for the congressional seat held by Democratic Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Fox News has learned.

In a phone interview, Murray, 38, confirmed her intention to run for the New York congressional seat as a Republican.

There is a crisis in Queens, and it’s called AOC,” Murray told Fox News. “And instead of focusing on us, she’s focusing on being famous. Mainly rolling back progress and authoring the job-killing Green New Deal and killing the Amazon New York deal.”

Murray, who was born in Jamaica and moved to the United States when she was 9, is officially launching her campaign Wednesday with an introductory video that takes sharp jabs at the 29-year-old Ocasio-Cortez.
 

She expressed disgust over the recent spat between Trump and Ocasio-Cortez and her allies. Trump has taken heat for telling Ocasio-Cortez and other minority progressives to "go back" to where they came from – provoking accusations from Democrats that Trump's comments are racist.

“I think it’s disgusting, to be quite honest,” Murray said of the controversy, without specifying which part of it disgusts her. “I think we are missing the point of why we’re elected to public office: to legislate on policy, to deliver results to those kitchen table issues that are affecting everyday Americans.”

Murray later clarified her thoughts on the back-and-forth, saying of Trump's tweet, "Is that how I would have worded it? No. Do I think the president is a racist? No." She added, "But I want to get back to the core of why we’re even talking about this – there is a crisis at our border."

I strenuously object to the notion that the bubble only exists on one side of the political spectrum. Bubbles are everywhere because the internet is everywhere. Anyone can be at risk of inundating themselves with too much of the things they want to believe in, especially if their sense of morality is tied closely to their sense of humor.

I'm thankful for the internet and for absurdist cartoons for putting so much air between my morality and my humor while they were still in the early stages of development. If I didn't watch all that Adult Swim in the early 2000's I might have grown into someone that posts Trump memes on social media and wishes Stephen Colbert would run for President. And the internet is especially fun because it's usually both how the bubble gets made and how it gets popped.

It wasn’t Bob.  I actually think it was HMFIC.  Whomever it was, I will give a heart-felt thank you because it led to the greatest user name and avatar in board history (maybe the entire internet).  I can say that because I didn’t come up with it, except for the avatar.

You're welcome...

I certainly strain myself arguing with people who don't like to hear what I have to say. Steve thinks he's Jesus for getting banned for three days. I went to **** for three days arguing with the left about whether or not Trump's smart enough to do things on purpose. They made me explain why he's smarter than I wanted to believe. It hurt my soul.
