I did not hear the infamous facebook post mentioned one time. Maybe it wasn’t that important. When I pointed out the lack of evidence for this post, I was called “racist apologist.” I was told to “examine my whiteness.” I was insulted. I had numerous other facebook posts presented, as though that indicated that the seminal post was genuine. It was a thoroughly unpleasant experience. All you had to do was acknowledge that the post was shaky, and move on. You could have talked about the other issues involved here, but you chose to insult me. There is a rule… the first person to start personal insults loses. ~ Burkhart’s remains closed as purported sale collapses ~ Police: Man shot at multiple cars before being shot, killed by officer ~ The Reading Rooms Designed to Protect Women from “Library Loafers” ~ Most of what you’re going to read today is pointless. ~ Owner of Burkhart’s apologizes, still plans to sell ~ edition number four ~ Vol.3 no 26 June 29, 1970 ~ GSU Library ~ palmer marsh ~ Style vs Substance, in discussions on racism, is a conversation we should have. Every wild eyed charge of racism is accepted without thought, and celebrated with yet another round of pearl clutching. ~ the answer to my security question… favorite restaurant … gave me fits, because I was embarrassed to say McDonalds ~ p17 june 29 1970 ~ Did anyone see the Obama/n-word post when it first appeared? What was the time and date? Is there a cached copy available? Do you realize how easy it would be to fake that screen shot? If an incendiery post like that appeared, why wasn’t it noticed at the time? Supposedly, there has been whispering about Mr. Marsh’s racial values for years. There are various incidents recited now about employees. What put it over the top, and into the awareness of the community, is that screen shot about Barack Obama. Who is the ex-employee who posted it? What were their motives? People think this is what fighting racism looks like. Police brutality, economic opportunity, access to housing, education, and health care…. this is institutional racism. None of this will be affected by hand wringing over facebook posts. This whole thing is fishy. People are so eager to believe an accusation of racism. No proof is required, You are guilty until proven innocent. ~ pictures today are from The Library of Congress. ~ selah
