Blowback Against Ethno-Inequality - Re the Rush Limbaugh post below: "I didn't like what the 'frats' chanted either; however, not withstanding ethno-exclusive scholastic, private, and even government groups operating with blatant impunity and years of unrestrained thousands of foul mouthed, violent, racist, anti-police, anarchist, 'up in your face' ethnocentric songs & increasing incidents of -organized- riotous street mobs, we should not forget 'The Law of Unintended Consequences' as it relates to encroachments on the 1st Amendment. Equality, these days, appears only to apply to minorities. As more & more 'special classes' of groups are given 'hate speech protections' we may well wake up one day & find all speech controlled ...and, if 'the winds shift' we could ALL be given 'special treatment' which has never had a good outcome for anyone. Further, to deny that some racism is extant in all persons flys in the face of reality. Our Constitution protects speech, even that with which we may disagree, beit racist or not. It acts as a 'safety valve' for societal pressures that otherwise could build to explosive levels. Recent examples of 'state approved' 1st Amendment inequality include the Martin (FL), Brown (MO) & now Robinson (WI) cases. Each unleashed racist auto-reactions by groups who have no compulsion to control their spontaneous 'race hate' - unrestrained hatred empowered over years because other ethnic groups have been constrained and are afraid to resist with equal conviction. Unless the scales of tolerance re-balance, only wider disparity will result and inevitably pressure will overcome constraint and fear."
P.S. Bret, Where was/is your 'punch in the mouth' attitude when 'N' folk slur Whites?
The Limbaugh post: https://www.facebook.com/redflagnewswire/posts/10153230068963854 - "You guys, Rush Limbaugh has something to say. The host discussed the widely talked-about racist chant video sung by University of Oklahoma's SAE fraternity on his show today, and argued that had Kanye West rapped the same words (which include racial slurs and reference lynching), it would become a chart-topper. "If this had been a song by Kim Kardashian's husband and they had sung this song at the Grammys...it'd be a hit," he said, and then added after a colleague disagreed, "But I'm telling you this stuff gets awards and the people who sing it are portrayed as American royalty in terms of celebrity. You can't deny that."
