Waaah my reputation is tarnished. What a privileged complaint.
Strange post.

Making accusations against somebody with no justification and then basically saying they can't complain about it because of 'privilege' is unbelievably cuntish.

They can complain about anything they want but it still isn't the same as actually being held back from certain things due to discrimination and prejudice

The word privilege just has you triggered.

So when African Americans who have to deal with a tarnish reputation because of stereotypes your reply would be "Waaah my reputation is tarnished." Profiling is OK because if someone complain about being unfairly targeted because that group has a bad reputation your response would be "Waaah my reputation is tarnished."

If you can't afford one man the dignity of a good reputation how can you afford to give respect to a whole groups of people? ... or (if you're in the habit of thinking only about race) give respect to a whole race of people? To justify the hatred you have for someone by simply labeling him or her a "bigot" then commence hating them, you become the very person you hate. "Let no man pull you so low as to hate him."
-Martin Luther King Jr.

The way the establishment has adopted the non-violence and ignored MLK's radical beliefs and then religiously pushed his tolerant side as to tell the populace not to rock the boat is a travesty

it's a convenient rewriting of history to downplay the role of militancy in the fight for Civil Rights ie Black Panthers

They also conveniently forget that he was all for people rioting and destroying property but that gets swept under the rug as well. He understood why people riot. Why the voiceless get frustrated to the point where they channel their frustration through rioting.

Also Nea you are still trying to comparing prejudices and stereotypes to a tarnished reputation. Two completely different experiences also you make it seem like I think it is okay to do run someone's name through the mud. I am just saying it isn't as bad as actually getting arrested through profiling and being prevented basic necessities that you take for granted like housing and jobs.

His beliefs were actually anti-capitalist, he began speaking about it shortly before his death

Just as the Black Panthers were probably the largest radical socialist group the US has ever had

Both saw (correctly) that race and class are inseparable in the US

So in other words

Yeah it's not right to call just anyone a racist

But MLK would probably call Nea a racist and that's the irony here

It's similarly ironic that he used a 1984 meme again product of a socialist and the scene was written about the type of hysteria in here about Islam
