    “Against my best wishes…” WTF???

    I can just imagine the Hallmark card – “Wishing you don’t get shot today but if you do hopefully it’s not fatal. Good luck.”

  • Terry October 13, 2020, 11:40 AM

    Take it easy-

    It’s a wonderful day. A glance at the right column here at AD, ‘Fire Sale’ will cure all the stress.

  • Kevin in PA October 13, 2020, 11:47 AM

    Is it possible the professor is affiliated with campus radicals and was perhaps engaged in a peaceful protest that resulted in him being shot?

  • PA Cat October 13, 2020, 11:48 AM

    Sounds like the good professor is moonlighting as a “security guard” for the local Antifa rent-a-mob.

    I read a few comments on here about negroes being violent, is it fair to say that violence is based off the delinquency and shortage of resources, also the conditions of the environment? Not all white people in America was allowed to move into the white class; for example, the Irish, Italians and other groups, in early America. In those days, there were many violence’s among these groups that infested the cities, especially the Mafia. When these groups were allowed to move up to the white class, many of their conditions changed. When you become apart of the white class there is upward mobility. A white person cannot speak on a black experience when they have the privilege to be in a “white class ” social system. It’s easy to judge from a mountain when you are not looking up from the valley. Why don’t you try being black for a day.

    Who is this about?
    Also, looks like a new troll has rolled in on its fat pussy.

    M’kay, Juwan you’re on:
    Born dirt poor in south Trenton- a River rat through and through- my dad managed to get our polack asses out town.
    But by the time I was 5! I was running with a gang of juvenile delinquents. BUT THEN, BLACK AND WHITE KNEW TO YESSIR MR. POLICEMAN NOT TELL HIM TO FUCK HIMSELF.
    Then we moved “uptown” wherefore the next 7 years I was called…….Nword.
    By the black family next door, and everyone else.
    Every place we moved, and we moved a lot for work, I was the Trenton Nword.
    Guess what got over it didn’t let a word run my life.
    Try work, not victimhood.

  • James ONeil October 13, 2020, 2:14 PM

    jawon; Try not being as ass for a day.

  • Lance de Boyle October 13, 2020, 4:04 PM

    jawon asks, “Why don’t you try being black for a day.”

    I did. Walked along a street in downtown East St. Louis, Illinois…

    Before it was 8:00 AM, four black teens who were turning their lives around knocked me down and stole my shoes. “Gibs me dem kicks, white boy wit de shinola tan.”

    As I walked barefoot through an alley, a junkie grabbed my cuff and ripped my pants off. “I be habin doze. Call it social jussist.”

    I took five more steps and an unwed mother of 8 multi-lingual tykes, by 7 different citizens, dropped a cement block on my head from the third floor. Seven of her intellectually gifted kids raced down stairs and stole my hat and shorts. “We be needn deez, mofo. Be partyin’ yo.”

    I crawled to the end of the alley. Three fat-ass hoes ast me if I wanted a blow job for a nickel. When I asked if the blow job came (I said ‘came’) with a side of fries, they kicked my ribs in and ruptured a kidney. I bled through my dick. So much for the cut rate blow job.

    I limped along the sidewalk looking for refuge. A toddler ran up, punched me in the dick, called me a wacist (a budding faiwy, I guess), and stole my mustache. “I be wantin dat stache, homey. It be hollyweens, yo.”

    Four black city councilmen approached me, stole the cigar I had hidden in my butt, told me to be sure and vote for them, and killed me.

    So, yeah, I tried it. It didn’t profit me much.

  • lpdbw October 13, 2020, 4:52 PM

    jawon, a little knowledge is a dangerous thing.
    You know when Germans, Poles, Irish, and Italians moved up in the world?
    When they emulated the behavior of the White Americans here before them.
    Attend school, work hard, marry first then have kids.
    Be responsible to your family and your community.
    Be as independent as you can. Be as charitable as you can.
    Don’t be violent, drunk, drugged, or irresponsible.
    Be proud of what you accomplish, and humble enough to know you can do better.
    Do you have to be white to do those things? No.
    Are you likely to be a failure if you don’t do those things, regardless of color? Yes.
    Exactly how much money do we need to spend on blacks to get them peaceful? It’s been about $22 Trillion so far…

  • H October 13, 2020, 5:02 PM

    Jawon, with all due respect, it ain’t Whitey on the Moon shooting down at Chicago, Detroit and L.A. who is responsible for all the blacks getting shot in those and other urban centers every weekend. I suspect you know that, even though it doesn’t fit your narrative. If you don’t, the F.B.I. crime statistics have it all for you in black and white. Quite literally, and the white folks here are darn tired of getting blamed for it.

    Regarding upper mobility, here are a few Blacks who earned it the hard way: Thomas Sowell, Clarence Thomas, Dr. Ben Carson, and Herman Cain, may he rest in peace. There are many others. Of course that won’t fit your narrative either, but, it does fit, if you take an unbiased look at it. Do let us know how that works out for you.

    “Unlike my wife I expect you not to cheat.”

    Seems when Professor Wilson was in the hospital they found his balls for him. 👍🏻

  • Terry October 13, 2020, 7:01 PM

    Lance –

    Thank you for the “being black for a day” comment. Reinforces my narrow understanding of what being black may be like. I would understand that the being black experience is more genetic than environmental. However, it appears many whites are acquiring the same genes.

  • Snakepit Kansas October 14, 2020, 4:33 AM

    Jawon was making a statement without being rude. Let’s all reply in kind and possibly enlighten him.

    I am curious to know who Jawon thinks it is that “won’t allow” blacks to move into the white class. How do they do it? Of course this is not true. As mentioned by others there is a simple formula from moving up financially in life. This simple formula requires the discipline of hard work, saving money, staying out of trouble and live financially responsible. There will be setbacks and that cannot let that stop you.

  • Iron Man October 14, 2020, 7:43 AM

    Jawon, there were so many typo’s and indicators that you need to brush up on your English before embarrassing yourself by posting nonsense in a public forum.
    Back to ESL classes with you.

  • TN Tuxedo October 14, 2020, 8:37 AM

    Sounds like Mr. Delicious found himself a teaching job after Rax Restaurants went bankrupt.

  • Jack October 14, 2020, 9:18 AM

    Jawon, we’ve heard all of that prattle before, hundreds of thousands of times and contemporaneously, we have experienced horrible American black attitudes toward whites, Asians and other blacks for whatever reason du jour the unhappy negro might decide or call upon for his wrath.

    All people in the US, regardless of race, have been given a clarion call to approach life and society by obtaining a free 1-12 grade education, pursue higher education, choose a career, play by a few simple rules and be the best they can be. Some jump on it and succeed, others shun it and believe that, for whatever reason, they are owed something by society in general or by the white race, specifically.

    There is no such thing as white privilege and anyone, except those born into money….and that is less than 1/10 x 1% of white population….will tell you that they have had to walk uphill on a bumpy and uncertain path to get where they were able to go in life. Most whites do have it better than blacks but that is because we have never thought that we were owed anything by any government or other source and FOR GENERATIONS we have obtained an education, worked, saved, trusted God (some do/some don’t), skrimped and saved, invested, took care of our health and of our family, knowing and trusting that we were on the right path.

    Blacks, as a whole, for the past several generations haven’t done anything at all like that but I believe we are seeing a generational shift in some young blacks who have bought into the system of success, obtained worthwhile educations and gone into business and medicine and other careers that require and welcome them with open arms. Simply put, if they are truly qualified and can get along with others, we don’t give a SHIT about what color their skin is.

    There are standards for success within every society and black culture has never stressed anything remotely related to the elements of living and behavior that successful people, of any color, embrace as part of who they are. And we know, very well, that many blacks considered those who wanted education and success have been called “uncle Toms” and other names to the point of ridicule.

    Matter of fact, black culture is toxic to everything it touches and there is nothing to be gained by listening to the rants of any hate filled, violent or misogynistic rapper or the mentally ill and vulgar Cardi B or Lizzo or any of the other black entertainers or athletes who make more money than most people in the world and whose success is built upon hype and a ghetto mindset.

    And then there are the hate and race baiting hustlers like Sharpton, Jackson and Farrakhan and others who follows those dolts down dead end roads, refusing to use their own heads to sort things out in life.

    Blacks always say, and so did you, that those more successful than they “try being black for awhile”. There is no reason for any successful person to do anything remotely related to that but I will suggest that maybe, instead of wallowing in the color of your skin and inviting others to join you, that you try being white for awhile.

  • ghostsniper October 14, 2020, 12:45 PM

    Well sed Jack, and I agree.

    I started on my professional career in 1972, 48 years ago, at the age of 16 and it’s been push, push, push all the way. It’s been mostly an uphill battle with a little flattening finally in the mid 90’s, but it’s always required extensive pushing no matter what. My saving grace is choosing a career that I truly enjoy and exploiting the hell out of it. Here I am now, 65 years old, and just today I took on commissions for 4 new buildings to be designed by the end of the year. Those 4 jobs, if completed on time, will put around $20k in my ass pocket but you know what? In order to do that I can’t waste any time at all sitting around pissing and moaning about things that other people have and that I do not have. Between now and 01 Jan 2021 I will have thousands of arbitrary thoughts flying through my brain but the biggest target of all is that ALL of these projects will be completed no matter what. If I don’t take on this mindset then that $20k is nothing but a dream and will vanish in the fireplace smoke. If people spent as much time getting off their ass as they did sitting on it and complaining how much better off all of us would be. The truth is everywhere and it’s plain to see so I don’t spend much time on the Jawons of the world who are filled with negativity and drag everything they encounter down to their level. fuk em ded – their choice

  • Fuel Filter October 15, 2020, 7:47 AM

    Jawon: First off, let’s start with this.

    Negros are about 13% of the national population.

    Negro men are half that number (6.5%). Negro men between the ages of 15-45 are half again that number (3.25%).

    So that’s a measly 3.25% that’s causing all the mayhem. In the inner cities. Black-on-black crime is out of control. More blacks die at the hands of other blacks than by any white man that ever existed.

    3.25%

    Now let’s move on…

    An oldie from the late, great Uncle Remus:
    *******
    Ol’ Remus sez:

    With all the recent troubles we’re again being invited to an honest and open conversation about race, or said differently, the browbeatings will be resumed. Try this for honest and open: many of us, probably most of us, are tired of your whining, your so-called grievances, your violence and crime, your insults and threats, your witless blather and pornographic demeanor—all of it. You’re not quite 13% of the population yet everything has to be about you, all day, every day. With you, facts aren’t facts, everything’s a kozmik krisis, and abusive confrontations are your go-to.

    Here’s the thing: some of us despise you, although fewer than you believe, but most of us plain don’t care about you or your doings. There was a time when we did care, but you betrayed our good will and played us for fools. We laugh about it now, but we actually believed you wanted equal opportunity and mutual respect and to live in harmony—all that stuff. Ain’t it a hoot? Imagine our embarrassment.

    We talk among ourselves just like you do. It’s true, we have “frank and open discussions” when you’re not around. Why? Partly because it’s exhausting to tippy-toe around you. Partly because you think it’s your celestial right to tell us what we can say. And partly because you’re alarmingly aggressive or painfully dim-witted by turns. We never know which “you” will pop out of the box, or when. But mainly because you’ve revealed yourself as grasping opportunists without honor or principle. There’s your deal-breaker. There’s more.

    During the recent riots you expected us to believe heisting snack food then torching the place was “standing up for justice”. When we didn’t buy it, you told us the looting and arson wasn’t done by the rioters after all, no, all the bad stuff was done by rioters from out of town. Apparently you think it makes a difference to us. And if we don’t fall for that one, you tell us you’re the real victims, you’re the ones “hit hardest” because the neighborhoods you looted and burned are, um, looted and burned.

    We’ve never stood in your way but we don’t really care if you have good neighborhoods or not. The evidence says you don’t care either, unless we build and maintain them for you, what your enablers call “investments in urban communities.” They don’t mention the return on our past “investments”. Our former neighborhoods weren’t improved by your arrival. Your contempt for ordinary civility tells us no level of “investment” would make a difference. Listen up. It’s simple. Just like our neighborhoods are our responsibility, so are your neighborhoods your responsibility, not ours. Your clownish leaders will tell you otherwise but they’ve always been your responsibility and they always will be your responsibility. Accept it or don’t, you’re the ones who live in them. There’s more.

    Your air conditioned, smart phone equipped, EBT-financed “poverty” doesn’t wash to begin with, yet you’d have us believe poverty causes crime. There’s no payday for assault and rape and random killing. Police say 20% of your criminal violence is related to dope-dealing, okay, business disputes of a sort, but it says the rest of it is largely pro bono. We also notice you have a working knowledge of jury nullification and take pride in not “snitching”, typical gang behavior.

    We say “what you think, you do. What you do, you are.” We know what you think—we hear it every waking minute. We know what you do. How could we not know what you are? Just so it gets said, crime causes poverty. It drives away productive people, their businesses and the opportunities you said you wanted. More bad news: you’re free to accuse them of anything you wish but they’re not coming back.

    Schools haven’t been educating our kids for a long time. They’re too busy conjuring up new ways to teach yours, in fact, we’re beginning to think yours are the only ones who matter. There’s always some new scheme claiming dazzling success which, in the end, amounts to handing out the answers with the tests, or taking the annoying hard stuff out of the coursework, or entering unearned grades by hand. Whatever they’re doing they’re doing it wrong. Your kids are telling us, in every way they know how, they have neither the interest nor the inclination for academics. Perhaps we should listen. If what they want is “out” it’s worth considering and probably worth encouraging.

    You tell us the schools have “failed to meet their needs.” And what are their needs, pray tell? Higher standards and tougher tests? Stricter rules and a dress code? Or some alternate universe where credit is earned for putting teachers in the ER, or for a string of abortions before the tenth grade? If you’d tell us what their needs are we’d at least know what needs we’re failing to meet. Until then we’ll mark it down for what it is, another lame excuse. They’re supposed to be schools, not day care or orphanages or theme parks.

    You pester us with the “civil rights movement” of fifty years ago as though it happened last week, with tedious 1960s footage and cloying voice-overs, in an endless loop, like Groundhog Day, decade after decade. It’s understandable, you haven’t met any real resistance since those days. Breaking news: none of it matters any more, it all devolved into just another swindle, an extortion racket, “pay up or we’ll make a stink—and the bad optics are on you”.

    Schools now teach something called White Privilege, which claims no overt act is necessary for us to be racist, in fact, absence of such acts is said to be direct evidence. It’s the “original sin” concept in a different wrapper, meaning our putative racism is bone deep and can’t be discharged by good works. Even so, they say we must atone in perpetuity for being white. They suggest we devote our lives in selfless service to you. No. Sorry. Whatever white privilege there may be, it isn’t enough. In fact, being subjected to White Privilege prattle is worth a couple of privileges.

    Speaking of privilege, 60% of your college grads—and 20% of all of you—are employed by government. The intent is to create an artificial middle class of course, hence the trivial positions with imaginative titles and weighty salaries. In the lower reaches it’s the quota hires, typically unqualified. It’s a great offer. You pretend you’re doing something useful and we pretend to believe you. The rest of your grads are largely diversity directors, window dressing, teachers of dubious “studies” and improbable “histories”, and similar warehousing schemes for the otherwise unemployable. It’s as good as it’s ever going to get, except for those on the skinny end of the bell curve—for whom we have genuine, i.e., earned respect. You’d be a fool to leave it on the table, for as long as it lasts.

    So here’s the deal. If you want to know what we really think of you, the answer is we don’t, unless you’re making yourself unavoidable or we’re cleaning up your latest mess. We can safely rely on you to make astonishingly irresponsible choices and blame us for the consequences. And you’ll demand we make good on them for you. We won’t take a chance on your sincerity ever again. Take it somewhere else, you have no credibility left with us. You’re a net liability, predictable to the point of surety. So we attend to our own lives and our own problems. It’s as it should be. We recommend it. As for you, frankly my dear, we don’t give a damn.
