  1. She was clearly influenced by this mega racist.

  2. Wow, once we get back to capacity, our crowds during third down defense is going to look like a veritable scene right out of Triumph of the Will.

  3. Every basketball player in the country is a racist every time there is a 3 point basket. Wow.

    I don't condone this and anyone stupid enough to post such crap deserves what they get. But we're in full witch hunt mode. And a lot of innocent people are going to get burned at the stake.

  4. They cite to the ADL website, but ignore that the ADL even recognizes that the OK sign is basically a hoax: https://www.adl.org/blog/how-the-ok-symbol-became-a-popular-trolling-gesture

    This is the picture included in that link:

    A few key paragraphs:

    "Has the simple thumb-and-forefinger “OK” hand gesture become a common white supremacist hand sign? Not quite, but it has become a popular gesture used by people across several segments of the right and far right—including some actual white supremacists—who generally use it to trigger reactions, or what they would describe as 'trolling the libs.'"

    "It is important to realize that the “OK” gesture is a nearly universal hand gesture and most usage of it is completely innocuous."
     
  5. It started as a troll job on 4chan if I remember right.

  6. Well now I know why the first African American President for 8 years did nothing for African Americans....
     
  7. I saw a Star Telegram physical location yesterday, well - at least a sign outside a building - and felt about as much like an archaeologist as if I had found an actual Blockbuster video.

  10. The OK hand sign is now racist?

    For those people that are bigoted, they are going to reveal it in their speech and actions. They don’t need or are clever enough to create code words or use OK hand signs to mean something else.

  11. It’s not. But an internet troll decided it was and it took off.
     
  12. I've canceled the Star-Telegram about a year ago. There are other, online ways to get local news. Amon Carter would spin in his grave at what they've done to the once largest newspaper circulation west of the Mississippi.

    And the Star Telegram is stupid enough to put that in the article.

    When did being an idiot become a journalism requirement? This is one profession that is in dire need of healing itself.
     
  14. We may think it's questionable journalism, but listen, this guy who wrote it for the Startlegram has been here in Fort Worth almost a year, and came from two years experience in newspaper work writing for the Poughkeepsie Journal in New York. How can you get more ready for the Startlegram than two years in Poughkeepsie?

  15. The daughter changing her profile pic to a racist flag is a bit harder to defend.

    Those posts from her dad though. YIKES!
