    My son imitated Michael Jackson in HS and my grandson, now 6 went as MJ one Halloween. Thank God they didn’t do blackface, they wouldn’t be able to run for office 10 and 30 years from now respectively. Jeez but again thank God, they do know which bathroom to go into - without prompting.

    Imitating Michael Jackson only happened after Thriller. A white high school student in 1980 was not imitating a rapper in a good way.

    The HouChron has a sports writer named Jerome Soloman who divides the world this way. Any issue, any topic. It's as simple as black and white. If Vegas offered odds on his columns, it would be like stealing.

    I wonder if that will someday become racist too?
    Simply trying to moonwalk like Michel Jackson will be the equivalent of being a Klansman?
    Video proof of you doing it as a child means you lose your job (exception for Democrats, of course).

    Geez. That is basically the the functional equivalent of a very late term abortion. Your parents must have really hated you. Sympathies for our brudda.

    There were some rough moments - seeing my mother get robbed and assaulted from time to time, being awoken on Christmas morning 1983 to some freak shooting up a car across the street, and getting bullied some at school. However, we moved when I was 8 (to Plano - the complete opposite of Oakland at the time), so though I got into some fights, they were elementary school fights. Those kids had some violence and hatred in them, but they weren't out to do serious harm and couldn't do so anyway.

    My brother, who was 7 years older had it much worse. He got into real fights, and when he was in 9th grade, a kid pulled a gun on him and robbed him. The next day, my dad showed up at the school and roughed the kid up - picked him up and threw him into a wall and told him he'd find him and kill him if he ever even spoke to my brother again. Still can't believe my dad didn't end up in the slammer for that. Lol. He wasn't a hot head and generally knew better, but the gun coupled with the fact that the city was run by the Black Panthers made him assume that nobody would protect my brother but him and that it was time to get serious. That incident prompted my him to switch careers and move the family at the end of the school year.

    When I lived in the City, we only went over there for basketball (we owned 1/3 of some sweet GSW seats) and the odd concert. The occasional Sat am farmers mkt. But that was it. Period.

    He should have included their political donations - to one party only

    Deez, proud of your dad for standing up like he did for your brother. I would like to think that I would do the same thing, but that takes some courage.

    Oh, and Evan Shroyer is a hero. I knew Adler was a punk but video evidence is also good.

    It's one of my dad's proudest moments. Even in the '80s most whites in Oakland were passive weanies, so this punk just assumed that nobody would do anything about him bullying and pulling a gun on a white kid. He also terrorized blacks, but none of them had fathers in the home, so the idea that an adult man would not only confront him but get physical with him wasn't on his radar screen at all. Needless to say, he left my brother alone after that.

    Nowadays that wouldn’t have gonna well for your family. The MSM would make the kid with the gun out to be a hero and your Dad would wind up in jail and plastered all over the MSM as a racist child-beater.

    If he had been caught back then, it wouldn't have gone much better. The police and local authorities were bought and paid for by the Black Panthers. They would have had no mercy on him and definitely wouldn't have done anything to the kid. The big difference for my dad was that the school principal (who was a black woman) was conscientious and a devout Christian. She knew what my dad had done and knew the kid's record. She could have and was asked to identify my dad to the kid's mother and to the police. She refused.

    Yep. I think she had a better perspective than anyone. Obviously my brother wasn't the first kid to have a run-in with the bad apple. He had almost surely been a pain in the *** for that principal, and she probably figured it was good for him to get a bit of a wake-up call from an adult man willing to scare him straight a little.

    I think two things are at play here. First, black voters are overwhelmingly partisan Democrats, so if you ask them if they want a Democrat to resign, they'll say No and vice versa with a Republican no matter the underlying controversy.

    Second, I think there's a bit of a Washington Redskins phenomenon taking place here. I'm sure that blacks aren't fans of blackface. However, I suspect that it outrages them less than it outrages virtue signaling white liberals or at least less than they pretend to be outraged.

    Finally, an honest Democrat lets out why none of these Virginia guys will lose their jobs -- they are unwilling to risk a Republican getting the political power.

    And this is what is behind everything they do. All of it.

    Whether they are on the attack (Kavanaugh, Moore) or on the defense (Ellison, the Virg. triumvirate). The truth is neither sexual assault nor racism mean anything to them. All that matters is raw power. They will say or do anything to get it, and hold it. Principles mean nothing. "Racism only matters when it can help you politically" is not a principle. They have no principles.

    Do not let these people gain political power at any level.

    It will, no doubt, present a good question for Republicans in the future. Because of this newly articulated "Virginia Rule," no Republican should ever be chased from office. For anything. But what if this presents a conflict with principle? We shall see how that resolves itself.
