The racist piece of shit position here is that black people are just too stupid to know how to get an ID, and IDs cost money, and black people don't have money.

First of all, there are more poor whites than blacks.  The percentage among blacks is higher. The sheer numbers are whites.  But none of these racist pieces of shit complain about "poor" people, only about "black" people.  So obviously, they think black people can't do the same things white people can.

I don't hear a word about IDs being required to drive, to buy booze, to buy lottery tickets, to buy a gun, to get a library card.  All of which black people manage to do just as well as white people.

If by some miracle you don't have the ID or ability to do any of those things, you'd be part of a vanishingly small micropercentage of the population. There's a valid argument that regardless of skin color you're not actually participating in society and your opinion doesn't matter.  That's probably few enough people to not even swing Bush v Gore in Florida.  AND

You can get a free ID for the purpose.

The racist piece of shit response is, "But what if they can't get to where the IDs are?"

This is bending freductio ad absurdum into a pretzel and shoving its head up its ass.

As far as current events, voter ID is required in multiple states and most foreign nations. But MLB isn't boycotting Toronto.

So the only conclusion we can come away with from this is that liberals are racist pieces of shit.

Which we knew.

If you are a liberal wailing about "voter ID," and therefore a racist piece of shit, watch this, and see how actual black people wonder where the Candid Camera is, because your position is that fucking retarded.

I keep seeing posts and comments to the effect of, "Holding an event at this time is asking for a lawsuit if someone gets sick!"

First of all, there is ALWAYS a risk of getting sick at an event. We even have the term "Con crud." The only person responsible for your safety is YOU.

Now, if you're the type of narcissistic, soulless piece of shit who'd sue someone because you got sick for a risk you knew existed and voluntarily undertook, DON'T GO. That is a 100% guaranteed way to avoid them getting sued. Because as a MORAL, RESPONSIBLE HUMAN BEING, I will not be suing someone for something I voluntarily risked.

As a bonus, I'd like to suggest you drink a quart of Drano, which is 100% effective in preventing future Covids infections.

While everyone is flipping out over Dr Seuss, who portrayed a "harmful stereotype" of "A Chinese man wearing a conical hat and eating rice from a bowl with chopsticks" sort of like this:

 

Which is common all over parts of Asia, actually, and is even featured in upcoming Disney movies...

Anyway, they ignored the image that could be considered to be very racist, with stereotypes of black people with what were then called golliwog lips, and the N word.  Of course, that was from a comic, and if you actually look at the comic, it was a commentary on linguistic weirdness and metaphors, which is a totally valid thing for a writer of his stature at the time to explore.  Was it offensive then? Yes, that was sort of the point, that these metaphors didn't make a lot of sense. (The comic was in the form of a store, where one could buy, among other things, "A wrench to throw in your works" with actual wrenches for sale, and "A nigger for your woodpile."  And yeah, holy shit that's offensive then, and more so now, and there's a perfect lesson to be learned by analyzing and commenting on that, rather than deleting it and pretending it never existed.

But none of the articles I've seen mention that. They obsess over "Chinese man eating rice from a bowl with chopsticks is racist!!" 

Gee, I wonder who'd be pushing a narrative that a perfectly innocent, traditional act is "harmful"?  Vs say an American in a baseball cap eating a hot dog?

And this is followed by all the shrieking about Pepe le Pew, and Miss Piggy, and...

 

Anyway.

One of the sitters my youngest had when a baby was a very competent, educated, older (50s) black lady, who was absolutely wonderful at playing, interacting, and entertaining the little girl.

One day I was sitting in my office, and I heard her singing, in a very sweet voice, "Ten Little Indian Boys."

I was amused, and noted, "Actually, Jess is Choctaw." (And Cherokee, but not enrolled).

The lady was apologetic, and I said, "It's not a problem, I'm just amused." (And so was Jess).  It was a perfectly common kids' song from when she and I were young, and before that, and there was no harm intended. (BTW, there's a version of the song turned into a mystery by Agatha Christie. Wait until the Wokies find out what THAT was titled.)

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/And_Then_There_Were_None 

Yeah, stuff that was acceptable in the past is offensive now, and the reverse would be true with the way "fuck" and "shit" are liberally littered through common literature.

Apparently, I'm not allowed to be upset about how Americans wear kilts and skirts that are called kilts, etc, even though I'm actually from Scotland. (Not that I actually give a shit, not being that sensitive and wimpy, but I use that as a repeated example.)  But present something from a different timeframe and all hell breaks loose.  

This fits my hypothesis that the Wokies are largely privileged and ignorant. "OMG! Can you believe how they used to treat/refer to people in the 1920s?!?" 

Um, yeah.

"NO, I mean it was SO OFFENSIVE!"

Yup.  Known about that for a long time.

"WHY AREN'T YOU ANGRY? ARE YOU RACIST?"

Nope, just educated and understand the context between then and now.

"BUT THOSE PEOPLE WERE HORRIBLE!"

They were people. People can be wonderful and horrible, and they are bound within their culture to various degrees.

Those cultures were different.  Studying them is useful and valid.  And losing your shit because their rules were not ours is juvenile.

Stop being George Lucas and editing the story to fit the newest narrative.

UPDATE:  She has moved to Dallas area, has a car and job, is staying with a friend while saving funds for her own place. It looks like everything is optimal, despite lengthy delays on DL transfer and similar stuff, and a three week delay on funeral due to administrative interstate matters.  It's looking very positive. Thanks to everyone who donated and linked to resources.

When last we left our intrepid heroine, her husband had died suddenly, she had no permanent home, no car, and no job.

Actually, she's had a shitty decade of marginal employment in SC, with the kids living with family in TX.  She and husband finally scraped up to relocate to Lubbock, where he had a job, and then he died suddenly in the hotel.

With help from friends and some of you:

He has been cremated and she has the legal paperwork, and accounts settled.

She has acquired a vehicle.

She has successfully defeated bureaucrats in single combat to replace her expired SC license (literally the week after his death) by mail.

She has moved to the Dallas area where the kids are.

Is staying with friends, but the landlord won't allow that for long.

And of course, WINTER STORMAGEDDON.

So, she needs to get into lodging and find employment (there are people hiring, so that's positive).  She needs to immediately pay for car insurance. She needs to shortly pay to properly coordinate for a TX DL to go with the TX car.

Then she can finally be reunited with her teenagers.

If you are still minded and able to donate, I have her direct email for paypal, or you can send to me and I'll forward.  I'll be happy to send a signed hardcover of my choice to anyone donating $50, and yes, I still have a couple from late last year to get out.  I BROKE A SNOWPLOW CLEARING MY DRIVEWAY.

She says, "Thanks to everyone for all you've done." And she sounded very grateful and touched.
