Re: Why Being Called a "Racist" or "Sexist" No Longer Means AnythingFeb 9th, 2017
Right before I fell asleep I had a pleasant, though melancholy thought. It was about how great it was to be a kid in the 80's. The cartoons were great. The movies were great. We would bike everywhere. We were the last generation of kids who could "just go outside and play." And for those of us old enough to remember the 70's, we VERY MUCH appreciated the stability and jobs Ronald Reagan provided for our families (and I'm not even being disingenuous in the slightest, Ronald Reagan WAS a calming, father figure). But perhaps #3 of the "Top 3 Things I Miss About the 80's" was that racism and sexism never entered my mind once during that entire decade...unlike the daily scourge it is today with the left and media constantly shoving it in our faces.Quote has been trimmed, See full post:
Think about that (or perhaps reminisce back to those days).
Days, weeks, months, even years, where you didn't have to worry about being called a racist, having "privilege," let alone watching your neighbors actively hating, even acting on the demise of the country.
We'd play with our buddy Luther (black kid).
We'd watch The Cosby Show.
And like every other kid we dressed like Michael Jackson in the 4th grade Halloween party (we had those in school).
Right wingers need labels,so addicted to labels,and even are in the category of having a label lingo flavour every week,tossing the label around like they own the word
I try to look ashamed but the labels keep a coming
Labels incite and all the disoriented Conservatives like this
So let them have their cake and eat it too
