Looting crackdown is 'white supremacy,' claims author
http://www.foxnews.com/us/2017/09/12/flo...jaffe.html

Quote:An author and journalist came under fire on social media Monday, after she tweeted a reply to an anti-looting warning from Miami police by saying: "The carceral state... is inseparable from white supremacy."

The Miami Police Department took to Twitter on Sunday, as Hurricane Irma battered the state. "Thinking about looting? Ask these guys how that turned out. #stayindoors," the post read, sharing a photo of people inside a jail cell.

Though Sarah Jaffe’s tweet on Monday garnered 1,500 likes, it sparked more than 100 comments -- many of which were critical and accused her of being racist.

"They have prisons, crime, and private property in Nigeria too," one user wrote. "And Egypt. And India. Nothing to do with white supremacy. Poverty/inequality."

"So you'd be ok with someone breaking into your house and stealing all your stuff to avoid a 'carceral state'?" another asked.

Someone replying to Jaffe said, "You're saying non-whites can't help but steal, so they shouldn't be punished? Seriously? Keep your racist opinions to yourself. #ShameOnYou."

Quote:Later Monday, Jaffe tweeted that "every now and then I check replies on my tweets and confirm why I have the quality filter on: that s---'s full of nazis."

I was wondering how long it would take for those racists who filmed all those poor minorities just trying to survive by looting for new Nikes and booz to be held accountable.

In a world of situational ethics there are NO ethics.

At a higher level this can be restated as:

In a world of relative morality there is not morality.

Unfortunately, Twitter, and all of the internet, gives stupid idiots a megaphone.

These same clowns would be screaming bloody murder if Whites were looting Black owned stores.

Not only does it give them a megaphone, it's controlled by leftists who also do their best to shut down/silence opposing views.

FB, Twitter, etc from time to time shut down accounts that they find offensive.


In the 60s the movement was about free speech.

Fast-forward 50 years and now the movement is about suppressing speech.

Kinda funny how views change when you move from the "oppressed" to those in power.

The alt-left is bound and determined to completely bastardize yet another term. When did they all go full-on Tariq Nasheed?

What the hell is "carceral?"

Story time! Remember when I mentioned that I was banned from a website to discuss local Minnesota urban issues and urban planning for asking the hyper-progressive liberals there to stop blaming everything on rich white people?

Well, it gets better!

Just a bit ago one of the local alt-left urbanists claimed that it was "white supremacy" for a bunch of wealthy benefactors of a local cause to host a volunteer recognition event at their mansion because.............. wait for it.................... there wasn't public transportation to their house and many of the volunteers didn't have access to a vehicle.

Not that is was inconvienient. Not that is was poor planning. Not that it was tone deaf (because it probably was, considering this event was transportation-issues focused) but it was - White Supremacy.

Keep at it liberals, and sooner or later you'll relegate calling something "White Supremacist" to be nor more effective than calling someone "Racist" or "Misogynist" as in completely ineffective.

Isn't it more racist to assume a number of the looters are not white?

I don't know either. I haven't seen any pictures of white looters so should we assume that only black people loot or that law enforcement chose not to post white looters?

depends on if yo u assume law enforcement is racist or not. Seeing as how the Miami-Dade police department is less than 21% white, the answer probably isn't what you want it to be.

This was nine specific people looting a pawn America

Are you saying that it can never happen that nine people looting are all the same race? Are you saying that the cops let white looters go? or are you just trying to kick crap up?

They are racists because they were monitoring the pawn shops and shoe stores where the black people would loot. Had they staked out the Vineyard Vines or the Abercrombie, they could have caught some white looters.

You asked and either-or question, both making separate assumptions regarding race. Logic dictates that you subscribe to one of the two choices.

My first thought was " I bet every one of these thugs have priors." My second thought was "Should have waited until night". Third thought was "f*ucking idiots".

I had all of those thoughts but I also thought, "What? Only black people loot"?

We have to be more mindful of what we present and consider how some people are going to perceive what they see.
