  1. So, Over the weekend Janelle had her account closed due to a thread she started and a link in her signature. I think it's crazy that this got her kicked from the site, seeing the thread was in good humor and the conversation was light hearted. No one was attacked, and in hindsight, the video could have been removed and the discussion left in tact. Not to mention, her video of police brutality than the same videos posted here daily. Being that PB is a very discussed topic, don't see why it's an issue. But we've known for a while that it was only a matter of time before she got the ax. Since her topic got to 3 pages, I can only surmise someone said something after the fact. I thought about protesting her removal. And fighting to get her back here since I've seen the bias and favoritism shown towards certain members in regards to posting topics. Seen POC and other minority groups straight get vilified while those who challenge such misconceptions get kicked out. We knew why, but we tend to not back down from a fight. And it has costs us on more than a few occasions, with thread bans and suspensions. But we're good knowing we stood up for the right thing and said what we felt was right. But, in her infinite wisdom, she said there's no need. Because we both got the best part of this place, each other. And that's all that matters. We're going to bigger platforms to fight this battle. If anyone wants to reach us, hit up Val, she knows how to reach us. Mods, close my account.
  2. Maybe the police? Since you've just admitted that guns aren't killing black young men. What's so funny is, you're trying your best to twist this because you don't want your guns taken away. You can't have it both ways. Just some friendly advice. Since this forum is going to be lacking black members(pretty sure there's only 2, maybe three here at most) maybe you shouldn't bring up black issues in a place that 98% white. Especially since it's usually in a negative light to being with. If you want to bridge that gap, learn about the subject matter. Educate yourself before speaking, that's half the battle. Empathy also helps. Because it's going to be suspect when you or other members obsessed with BLM are talking in a space devoid of anyone even related to black people and our issues.
  3. That's another way...
  4. That's one way of putting it...
  5. http://www.cdc.gov/men/lcod/2013/blackmales2013.pdf http://www.cdc.gov/men/lcod/2013/whitemen2013.pdf Just some food for thought. From 15 to 34, homicide is the leading cause of death for black men. Murder doesn't even get to 10% in your category. We have babies that have to worry about getting killed. Malpractice isn't murder, unless you can produce evidence that shows doctors high fiving each other after a black person dies on the OT. Or email trails that show doctors are deliberately trying to kill us. This is evident in police departments. I know you guys want to keep your guns, but this merry go round of blaming everything except the root cause has got to stop.
  6. Loyal to the end! Knew folks in Scott AFB that were torn between STL and IL. But the Cards are the default team if you can't go with the Cubs.
  7. Dude really? I'm from STL, born and raised. I bleed red(well, we all do but still) I'm just mad the Cubs won!
  8. You didn't respond in your own thread, so I wanted to get you out in the open. You can't resist my charm! That's the issue. How can you NOT see the bias against people of the Muslim faith? Not only was it posted in plain sight, but if I recall correctly(I do) you made a direct reference to my former religion to Nazis. And my wife has that receipt. But, we're trying to show you that's not the way to go about it. You said you're willing to learn, then show us you're willing to grow and understand Muslims are not the enemy. You are saddened by his "passing". Not a friend, but someone that you clearly miss. I miss Penny, Novembro, MBD, Spooky because they were cool posters. And once again, I've stepped to them if I saw something that didn't sit right. Because it keeps the mods off our backs. Hell, I kind of miss Danno, but as much as we tried to keep him straight, he went the same path as LIb. Kept going until there was no more room left, even though he was warned.
  9. Who's talking about you? I didn't name anyone. But, since you're here, maybe you can give those qualifications for racism. Since, you know, we minorities tend to deem things racist when they're not. Would love to get the official list from you. Even LIB was saying that gun control was racist, because it excluded blacks from getting guns!! And the end result of that, as YOU YOURSELF have said before, is that it has brought the laws-abiding black citizens down, right? And why would this be important to America as a whole? Because if keeping guns from a certain group is bad for a certain group, then the SAME RESULTS can be expected for America as a whole. http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/585698-no-guns-for-negroes/ Talks about law biding black people and being denied owning guns. Which was funny, because I said this a while ago, and got ridiculed by the same member. Not criminals or thugs. Why did you think it did? Tell you what let's come back to that. So here's one, let me find another one. ----------------------------------------------------- Are you saying the teen referred to in this article NOT a thug/criminal? A cop kills a criminal, a gang member, somoene who could have just as easily killed the cop, and you are upset because several people called it for what it was? You should be happy this punk was apprehended/killed so he cannot take out more innocent people. And you know the reference to the president goes back to the Trayvon Martin killing, when he made a comment that was pretty silly, saying TM could have been his own son. Bad choice of words on Obama's part. It's not that LIB was trying to say the president is the same as this thug (your own words, so I guess you DO think the subject of this post was a thug.) But that's not the main point to that thread, is it? It's that a criminal was put down, he was black, and you don't like it because several in there called it for what it was. Yet you focus on LIB's comment? http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/592499-chicago-police-shot-and-kill-teenager/ What about this one here? A criminal. Hood rat he calls them. The President's son he says. He relates this thug to the man who is the Commander in Chief. Because that makes sense. But it's strange, his page is completely locked and his history gone, because there's so much more. But nothing strange about that... ----------------------------------------------------------------- Sorry, can't see eye-to-eye with you on this one. I am firmly against sharia law myself. It's not like they are tortururing or putting to death criminals and thugs who break the laws we have here in America. No. They attack, torture, and kill people who do things like sell alcohol? Or the many women who have been stoned because someone raped them? Or "honor killings"? Mostly against women, it seems. I am actually upset that sharia law is being allowed to be used here in America at all. Most states have banned it. Let's see how well it works out where it has been allowed. Only time will tell... https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/morning-mix/wp/2014/05/28/in-pakistan-honor-killings-claim-1000-womens-lives-annually-why-is-this-still-happening/ http://www.breitbart.com/national-security/2014/10/28/punished-for-being-raped-the-burden-of-women-under-sharia/ She's upset because all he did, day in, day out, was attack Muslims and black people. Period. I said it. Not go against our message, but call our own existence into question every chance he got. As a Muslim, I had to hear about my horrible religion from not just him, but some others. I was accused of suffering from Stockholm Syndrome: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/592583-60-year-old-christian-woman-publicly-caned-in-indonesia-for-breaking-sharia-law/page-2 ----------------------------------------------- We cannot discuss it if there is no proof of what someone said or did not say. This again, as I implied to J above, becomes hearsay/personal attacks against another. I don't doubt your word that the thread once existed, but just as you took some of the above stuff the wrong way, it could have happened below. Perhaps if, as you say, the mods were disgusted by what he said, they deleted the thread? IDK But my favorite low was when Lib basically said the SC shooter was ok for killing those black church goers because of black men raping white women. Even more of the most chilled mods was disgusted by his comment. Of course, this thread is gone, again odd. ------------------------------------------------ Or perhaps he backed away because anytime somoene (who isn't black) doesn't agree with your POV, he/she runs the risk of being called a racist, and that is a bannable offense. It's a two-edged sword, cutting both ways. The difference is, you can say whatever you want about how bad you have it, but it's walking on thin ice to try to counter your claims. There's so much more, but it looks like the more extreme ones aren't in plain sight anymore. And every time Janelle engaged with him, he made it a point not to say something. Which is what's expected. ------------------------------------------------------ Well, here's the thing about that... Obama making it to the top is a good thing for himself, at least, and maybe for blacks overall. If something positive comes out of it for your POC, then that is great. But at the end of the day, not all of us see him as a good president the way you do. In fact, speaking of keeping receipts, I recall you calling ME racist for daring to say he wasn't a good president. Accused me of only saying that because he is black. Totally untrue, of course, but that's what you said. (Sorry, no link. But like you, I remember stuff too sometimes) But I tend to agree with NB... The media focuses on the negative. As I said before, it's all about "selling news", and a black man overcoming adversity and making a good name for himself just isn't nearly so dramatic as the thugs shooting up Chicago today. And it IS sad that's the way it is. If the media focuses on the negative, then people will continue to think negative things. That's human nature. It's sad that NB went into a long page tirade about how positive black people aren't getting credit and the worse of us are uplifted. The best role model any black person can have, a man who has multiple degrees, married to the most awesome black woman(Janelle and Oprah are 2nd and 3rd) in the world, has two great daughters, been nothing but fiyah since day one, is the living embodiment of class, grace, and swag, oh yeah, he was elected President of the United States, twice, and he's the black man some of you can't stand, a good chunk of you don't even believe he's an American citizen or he's a secret Muslim. Like it matters. 1. Um, that's what I said. I was replying to your crazy statement that J wants thugs and criminals armed. 2. He made a point to say this is Obama's son. TM was a black male, Obama is a black male. His statement was accurate. The fact that folks couldn't discern this is an issue. 3. At what point did I EVER say I wanted Sharia law here or anywhere for that matter? Talk about disrespectful. I was no more violent because of it. Religion is what YOU make it. But to be told that I'm a horrible person because of a religion... 4. We can talk about it because I stay bringing receipts, when/if I find it, I'll be sure to bring it here. 5. But I do have the receipts for what I said about Obama and not liking him is racist: Actually, If you are voting for Trump because you're against Hillary lying, but completely cool with Trump lying, you might be a sexist. If you think Obama is a dictator for saying he has a pen and will use it, but was rooting when Putin took the Ukraine, you might be a racist. Keep trying though, I like the challenge! Sorry. Once again, keeping me in check. See how easy that was!
  10. Tom and Jerry would be banned if it were to air right now.
  11. And I'm sorry that you didn't take the time to do the research before you threw out this inaccurate statement. But since you asked for receipts: http://www.visajourney.com/forums/topic/585698-no-guns-for-negroes/ Talks about law biding black people and being denied owning guns.

  12. A few things: This site has a TOS. One that's a bit wonky sometimes, but that's the price of being here. I've seen some shady bans and questionable judgement calls, but we're on someone's site as guests. Unless you pay, or run it, you have to play the game. Folks get warnings and if you don't adhere to the rules, you get the boot. It's real simple. Now, on to the real issue. The member in question has been here for over a decade. More than a few of us felt that he was given quite a wide berth in regards to posting, given his exclusive posting history of only 3 topics give or take. Personally seen it where his thread, while derogatory towards an entire group of people, was left alone and his speech unimpeded, while a member was banned for just speaking his name in the same thread. So the fact he was banned, means he's probably been skating on thin ice longer than any of us. And was probably warned more than any of us combined. Free speech is freedom to speak your mind, it doesn't protect you from the consequences of your words. I spoke upon this in that thread where it was brought up. The folks are mad that he got the boot, but let's keep it 100. We all knew the history, and with the bans going out more frequently, someone on his side of the fence should have said something to him. He wouldn't listen to me or any other MDL, but one of you could have reached him. I know here I've said some things that might have not been what I meant or even flat out wrong, and folks in the MDL corrected me. If I felt it was wrong, I apologized and made the correction, if I was right, I broke out the receipts. And I've done the same for a few members that I always agree with. That's what you do, you hold yourself and those in your company responsible for your actions, so there's no raised eyebrows in terms of integrity. But I find it unusual to say the least. Another member said they stay out of folks business when it comes to blanket generalizations(at least in the realm of certain minorities) but make a blanket statement about a group of people you might have a fancy for, they coming in ready to shed blood. You can't say you're not for something when you allow it to go unchecked forever then be hurt when the hammer comes down. Either stand up for what's right, or go down with the wrong when it's time. You can't be against something when you're in the background saying that's none of my business in an open forum. Especially when you're in the same space making comments on it, knowing it's wrong.
  13. Really? That's what you're rolling with? Reported for racism.
  14. That's 5 seconds with a 3 second margin of error... Nothing wrong with rocking what God gave you. I think as long as she's doing her job and it's effective, she is good. Fact is, folks aren't mad about her clothes, they mad about her shape. Also, nothing wrong with loving yourself. She is fierce with it, and even though she's been reprimanded for it, my only thing is now scrutiny is going to be a big part of her life.
