You are all over the place "skinnyman" (another bullshit tactic, hiding).
If we want to have a conversation on the origins and faculty of the War on Drugs I'm prepared to do so. With actual facts and statistics. Not what I think and feel based on mass media.
And by the way each controlled substance has it's own demographics. So saying that White people use more of all drugs is ignorant. Now the justice system is a different conversation, having nothing to do with this. Prosecution of crime is not pertinent here. I have studied this shit all of my life. My father sits in jail for 22 years on a drug conviction, my brother also (less time sentenced).
Again I say though, do something in the community to fight hate and intolerance, yelling at one person for an ill-conceived opinion is pointless. He is a father and a child was abducted, he was emotional. Fuck. It's better to lash out at a person's reaction with hate, that's just fine. Liberal phonyism.
The other great point here, is that now the customers will be all of the extreme right wing racists who love to find shitty places to bring their guns and hate, while all of the sweet and understanding liberals will avoid it, thus perpetuating any hate that may or may not have surrounded this guy, who is giving back to the community.
Nothing like an intolerant Liberal to give an intolerant Conservative a bigger platform. Maybe instead of hating hate, try changing it's mind.
And did he site his facts? No. You have no information to say that one ethnicity consumes more than any other. The issue is not race it is socio-economics.
I wasn't complaining about the violence. I am very well-versed in the politics of my area. I am a child-social-worker, as is my wife. My friend Chuck Bowden who just passed, wrote many fantastic books about the border/cartel violence, I recommend informing yourself. And not defending other's uninformed opinions.
My point was, a lame and poor composed an opinion as it was, it is NOT racist.
Using generalities like "most" and "all," are.
It's not a very good restaurant and over-priced with poor service. These are valid reasons to dislike a place. If John Foster runs for some kind of office, again another method of showing your opinions. But yelling fire in a crowded theater hurts our community.
Save your outrage for worthwhile causes. Not the uninformed emotional opinion of a guy who qualified for a bank-loan to open a shitty restaurant.
Meanwhile Citizen's United is being argued...what a mindless herd of moronic sheep.
"The white people." Bravo. well done. Way to fight racism with racism. Yes the American government and the War on Drugs is responsible for the cartels. You saying all white-people are the drug addicts paying for it is the same as saying ALL immigrants are members in the cartels.
Ignorance of a topic is no excuse for self-righteous indignation.
Chicken & Waffles are not "southern cuisine," so there is another example of taking your own views and having them fit into what you want to see.
The entire international border is considered a war-zone, and "Constitution-Free-Zone" by our Government. There is nothing racist in saying that the cartels, the Sinaloa in particular, are terrorists, they are. Don't any of you recall the thousands of children stranded at our border recently? That was a direct result of cartel-violence.
He did not express himself well, but neither do most people, especially on social media.
Perhaps look again at your own values and wonder why your need for "tolerance" makes you intolerant.
We have it pretty well in this country if this is what we find to be outrageous, the opinions of a restaurant owner, maybe you should all vote more instead of using your outrage in such pointless and ineffectual ways.
Shit, we're a scene now? Are there meetings? I think I'm behind on my dues. Another hard-hitting journalistic endeavor about a place that has long since closed. Are you going to review the Titanic next? I can't wait.
What would have been awesome is if you actually spoke to somebody, namely the artist who made the shirts, maybe he could have told you something.
