Was depressing.

2018-08-30 21:41:23 UTC  

Sounds like most states in the US

2018-08-30 21:41:55 UTC  

Unless you move way out away from civilization

2018-08-30 21:42:10 UTC  

I would love to, but they'll follow us eventually.

2018-08-30 21:42:32 UTC  

Like what they are trying to do with New Hampshire because it's "too white".

2018-08-30 21:42:32 UTC  

I would but I want to be near the fight

2018-08-30 21:42:47 UTC  

Ain't no more running

2018-08-30 21:42:50 UTC  


2018-08-30 21:43:06 UTC  

I'm right in the thick of diversity, don't you worry.

2018-08-30 21:43:13 UTC  

MD is like 52% white now I believe.

2018-08-30 21:43:31 UTC  

I spent a couple weeks in Baltimore this summer

2018-08-30 21:43:37 UTC  


2018-08-30 21:43:39 UTC  

I'm sorry. 😃

2018-08-30 21:44:00 UTC  

Baltimore is a great reminder of why I'm in IE and why I don't want our country to become majority non-white.

2018-08-30 21:44:10 UTC  

It was to visit an ex, really a lose/lose trip there

2018-08-30 21:44:15 UTC  


2018-08-30 21:44:25 UTC  

Baltimore is a lose/lose.

2018-08-30 21:44:27 UTC  

Crabs up there are pretty good tho

2018-08-30 21:44:41 UTC  

Yea I’d imagine if one showed union soldiers modern pics of Detroit or Baltimore they’d stay home

2018-08-30 21:45:11 UTC  

Naw. They'd come down here.

2018-08-30 21:45:21 UTC  

If they believed it at all

2018-08-30 21:45:38 UTC  

"There just simply is no way such a thing could occur"

2018-08-30 21:45:52 UTC  

"You let who do WHAT?!"

2018-08-30 21:46:32 UTC  

@Asatru Artist - MD It wasn't the South's idea to *free* them

2018-08-30 21:46:44 UTC  


2018-08-30 21:46:58 UTC

2018-08-30 21:47:17 UTC  

You could just find your clothes somewhere else?

2018-08-30 21:47:38 UTC  


2018-08-30 21:47:52 UTC  

I'm afraid the mods are gonna come get us

2018-08-30 21:47:55 UTC  

I could turn this discussion into something very long very quickly

2018-08-30 21:48:08 UTC  

"No starting another Civil War in the chats, guys."

2018-08-30 21:48:46 UTC  

@Rick Flair That was loooong before my political awakening. I was in the fifth grade when that whole Ferguson (Scratch that, Trayvon Martin- oops) debacle was going down, and we used to have a weekly assignment where we had to look up and write a summary for 5 news articles, so I was exposed to the news but I didn't really care about it or put too much effort into it. I remember talking to my mom about the Michael Brown story and questioning her on why it seemed like different news organizations would leave certain facts out of stories, and I was just so puzzled by it. "Aren't journalists supposed to try and search for the truth?" And she had to explain to me the concept of political agendas and biases. I still didn't get it for a while, but looking back I remember her seeming kind of sad while she was talking to me about it. In retrospect, I think it was because she knew that the last vestiges of my innocence were finally disappearing.

2018-08-30 21:49:37 UTC  

Dang, Ferguson was when you were in 5th grade? When I was in 5th grade the OJ Simpson trial was going on

2018-08-30 21:49:52 UTC  

I think. That, or the LA riots

2018-08-30 21:49:57 UTC  

How old is 5th grade?

2018-08-30 21:50:03 UTC  

Hah damn I feel old AF

2018-08-30 21:50:16 UTC  

*doesn't say anything that reveals his age now*

2018-08-30 21:50:39 UTC
