Why do I think that we will hear from this kid 40-50 years from now

In a Congressional hearing, about him and have to listen as how he and some of his friends like Squee, Fartman, and Tod harassed a Vietnam era veteran. Of course it will be played of as boys will be boys & that Nathan Phillips was actually the agressor. Then we get another Supreme Court Justice for life.


History is only useful if we learn from it.

1. You might hear from him because white wing trumpsters make him a hero.

2. Exactly

Anyone trying to defend this kid may as well just put on some blackface and join the school.

3. Agree. I do think that absent the MAGA hats, blackface, etc. ,

there is enough uncertainty in the expanded video that white wingers could claim young Smirker is a victim of some liberal scheme to brand the kid a racist. But we canít take it absent the red hat (2016 confederate flag), blackface, etc.

I hope the kidís parents and school get more of what they deserve.

4. I was always told about trends, patterns, etc.

This video alone, watched in a vacuum, I could see how they can brand the kid as a "victim". But we do not live in a vacuum, and there is a trend among Trump MAGA hat wearing people and the way that they act towards people who they don't agree with or like (POC for the most part). So that we can take everything as a whole picture, we have seen Trumps rallies. We have all seen people being assaulted and have heard Trump himself, egg the people on.


Mussolini does not get enough credit because of what Hitler did. But those who study history (like myself and many others) know that Hitler himself idolized the way Mussolini worked and spoke. Until people start treating Trump as a future Hitler/Mussolini, he will continue to get away and that in itself emboldens him on trying to get away with new things.

2020 cannot get here fast enough.

10. Is there evidence of this kid wearing blackface?

 

If so, can you post a link?

13. Never said there was. But it appears to be fine with the school, parents, etc. The MAGA hats aren't

much different than waving a confederate or nazi flag. And our little smirker sure had one of those. Do you need a citation?

7. It might be sooner, if he drags a Native American kid behind his pickup truck.

11. I doubt he limits his racism to Native Americans

My guess is anyone outside his little group is considered sub human. MAGA idiots just seem to bend that way.

12. It is possible.

As metro Cincinnati turns itself into a medical and tech hub, the incoming flow of people are mostly non white. The demographics in the northern suburbs are already changing quickly. As people settle in and get tired of the downtown commute they'll look for closer housing, and just over the river in Northern Kentucky is a good choice. Over the last 10 - 20 years those communities have invested heavily in infrastructure improvements and community projects.

I can envision a time in the lives of current high school kids where Northern Kentucky is minority white. Go far enough out and I can see white generally in this country are well under 10% of the population. Yes, you'd have to go out a few 100 years at least, but I think it's possible.
