Just a few pictures of how long this shit has been going on, mostly to no good outcome.

How long must the very same protest - updated for the era - be made? When will this country learn what the fuck we stand for? Over, and over, and over, and still over again, and again.

This old, cranky-ass white guy stands solidly with these men and women.

This is just a sample. The oldest image, by the way, is from 1936. NINETEEN THIRTY SIX. Think about that.

The only knee still necessary really ought to be to a shriveled, orange hired scrotum.

?w=2000























And let's end this on a high note:

This is about white privilege and the black guy daring to speak out.

24. Trevor Noah of the Daily Show was on fire last night!

Anyone watching could clearly see what this was all about once he was done. It was a show for the ages!

5. Seeing the picture of Jesse Owens brings to mind the story of Owens and German long jumper...

....Luz Long.

He noticed something in Owens' approach in the long jump and advised Owens about it. Owens corrected it, won the Gold Medal and Long finished second.

Long was a white German in Nazi Germany, probably risked his life for even talking to Owens.

9. Luz Long died in the war

he was killed during the Allied invasion of Sicily while he was serving in the Wehrmacht

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

It sounds like the two men stayed in touch as friends and Jesse Owens went back to Germany to visit Long's family later on

10. Yes, they became friends and sadly Long was killed in the war. A nice but sad story overall.

It shows how, even 80 years ago, sports could transcend race and bigotry. One wonders how Hitler felt after he heard that story.

16. Thanks. K&R Donald Trump loves him some Muhammad Ali!

.

6/4/2016

Donald Trump on Saturday was quick to praise sports icon Muhammad Ali following his passing, which ended a relationship between the two that spanned decades.

"Muhammad Ali is dead at 74! A truly great champion and a wonderful guy. He will be missed by all," Trump tweeted.

Of course, that was before Ali ripped Trump a new asshole. More at the jump.

17. I recognized the four Gentlemen at the table in the first photo.

Some of the men standing looked familiar. Carl Stokes is standing at far left behind Bill Russell. He was the Mayor of Cleveland from '68 to '71. The fifth man from the left behind Jim Brown is Sid Williams, NFL player and the husband of Maxine Waters.

20. The Republicans and Charlie Koch have to be pretty afraid right now.

A new civil rights movement might hold up America's march to becoming a nazi dictatorship where most of us are wage slaves to dirt bags like Charles Koch.

23. Then there's what the white judge said to the white serial killer...

"You're a bright young man. You'd have made a good lawyer, and I would have loved to have you practice in front of me, but you went another way, partner. Take care of yourself. I don't feel any animosity toward you. I want you to know that. Once again, take care of yourself."

Judge Edward D. Cowart (of Dade County) said that to Ted Bundy after he sentenced him to death.
If Ted Bundy had been a black man, do you think that judge would have said that?

28. None of it was a waste of effort. It takes a long time and a lot of repetition to break through

the thick skulls of unaware people.
