He was in charge of suppressing the black vote in Seminole County Flduh at the time the pictures were taken.

No shit. What's sad is where there's smoke, there's fire. Think of all the times they got away with it.

Oh man painting your face black 14 years ago is so fucking bad. Destroy his career!

This right here makes me want to vote for trump.

Defending blackface in 2019. That’s a bold move Cotton, let’s see if it pays off.

So, let's ignore the fact that you can't read. Do you really think what you wear for halloween should destroy your life and career?

My comment referenced the fact that Sam is defending it in 2019 you fucking retard.

But I'm pretty sure doing it in response to the Katrina tragedy 14 years ago would be just as bad.

You fucking idiot.

Note the two different versions already present in the thread...

"in blackface inmitating a Katrina victim"

"what you wear for halloween"

And yes, one of those (taken at face value, no pun intended), is much worse than the other.

i guess i have thicker skin than most. what someone wears during halloween really has zero bearing on my feelings or thoughts. granted, i wouldn't do it, nor would i wear a nazi uniform, but other people do because they are trying to do a gag. i don't get the uproar.

Again, there is a pretty big difference between what you are claiming and what the other version is claiming.

It's not so much about how the guy dressed for Halloween.

It's about what else we might reasonably assume about someone who thinks it's funny to dress as a blackface Katrina victim.

Worth him losing his job? Thats bullshit.

Losing his job as a public servant*. It's an important distinction. If he was just some random asshole with a 9-5, I would be on the "who really gives a shit? Guy's an idiot, no need to cost him his job" (a la Boston bomber girl). This guy holds public office. They should be held to a higher standard.

There would be zero politicians if offensive behavior was a standard. Reasonably assumed...

There would be zero *republican* politicans if offensive behavior was a standard.

I'll reasonably assume I was correct.

You are clearly not. Being correct would require properly interpreting context.

I agree that assuming is definitely not proper context.

Find me a person who claims they have never said or done anything offensive, and I'll find you a liar.


Not to mention that "offense" is subjective to the person observing it...so any act can potentially be offensive.

Pretending like "anything offensive" is relevant to the discussion like you're a willful retard doesn't win you any points.

"what do you want to do to the people behind the the 1986 film, soul man? surely they deserve scorn?"

Are they holding public office?

It is not surprising that the lesser species are unable to truly comprehend the language and intricacies of the chosen.

Depends on the job and what was done. To answer your question.

If you feel employees in general have poor job security, then I would agree with that.

- I was unaware you were more than one person, so I apologize to both of your personalities (the headstrong, but not necessarily too smart, politico, and the other that likes rom-coms).
