    If we made all statues in thorium (the color is black), that would also be racist.

    The tool bags he is teaching probably gave him this idea. They've been "painting" statues for quite some time.

    Professor should start dressing up these naked statues, adding some implants here and there, perhaps, Grammy like fashion sense.

    There are days I wonder if the Internet is a good thing or not. This is one of those days. Because 30 years ago, these people yapped to 3-4 people at the university they attended/taught and realized with 3-4 eyerolls that maybe they are out there. At worst, they got a modicum of validation, or at least no negative validation, and lived their miserable negative lives in a bubble somewhere in the Berkshires or somewhere.

    Now they get press and contacts via the inter webs. It validates their ideas and makes them think they are smart. I'm betting with Forcebork and InterGram and the like, the # of Americans that believe they are of above-average intelligence is up significantly. :(

    In today's racist news, the Cleveland Indians agreed with Major League Baseball's front office that it's time to remove Chief Wahoo from their uniforms. Actually, 2019 is the time to remove him. Cleveland Indians to remove Chief Wahoo logo from uniforms | CBC Sports
    The chief will still be found on the club's consumer items like caps and shirts, though.

    Any RPI grads here? That's right, raise your hands, racists. This letter was written by a professor in regards to a slump in alumni donations. I had a lot of trouble following his rant/fundraising request, but rest assured you're a racist, sexist, heightist.

    I thought to myself: "Self, what does Mr Bystroff look like? Does he look like as much of a douche as he sounds?"

    This is what happens when people don't have enough real problems. They wouldn't last a hot minute in a country with actual oppression.

    If you disagree with a progressive you must be a racist

    no. If you're white and don't hate yourself for it, you're racist.

    I swear this is a true story. My daughter went to U Miami and grew up here in Mass. The first time she went out for ice cream she asked the big black kid working the counter for "Jimmies" on her ice cream. Kid looks at her and says "Scuze Me?" "What did you say". Her sorority sister grabbed her and explained. It used to be on the sign at Friendlys when she was a kid. Now they are called sprinkles.
    Then one day they were talking about ordering take out and she said that they should order " Chink" food. When everyone's jaw dropped open she said "What? Don't youz guyz like chink food?"

    Yeah I had this argument with my wife(she went to school in PA). For some reason they think it's racist out of NE. However, it's supposed to be named after the guy who created them, named Jimmy.

    In the South they would call a slave a Jimmy. NSFW - skip to about 55 seconds

    Wait, "jimmies" isn't the right word? Where I grew up "sprinkles" were the rainbow ones and "jimmies" were the chocolate. I still call them that. I hope I don't get killed over it. Am I old?

    Amen, Brother.

    And, they're Frappes, not Milkshakes.

    And there is no tomato in clam chowder.

    The line must be drawn somewhere.
