Oakland Mayor: We Cannot Tolerate People Hanging Nooses in Parks Even Though They Weren't Intended to Be Nooses and Even Though They Do Not Look Anything Like Nooses

Zero tolerance for nooses. And not just nooses, but zero tolerance for things that look like nooses.

And even that's not enough -- zero tolerance for things that don't look like nooses.

Oakland's mayor said five ropes found hanging from trees in a city park are nooses and racially-charged symbols of terror but a resident said they are merely exercise equipment that he put up there months ago.

He said that, or they are just that?

It's the latter. The "nooses" are ropes with "plastic pipes" in their ends.

The term the AP is intentionally avoiding is "hand-grips." These are excercise ropes that have plastic hand-grips at their ends, not nooses.

But the Mayor has to give voice to the lunatics, so we're now going to pretend that exercise ropes are nooses.

Mayor Libby Schaaf said Wedesday that a hate crime investigation was under way after a social media post identified a noose at the city's popular Lake Merritt. Police said they searched the area on Tuesday and found five ropes attached to trees.

The Police Department provided five photographs of trees, some of which showed knotted ropes and one that appeared to have a piece of plastic pipe attached to a rope, hanging from tree limbs.

They have been removed by city officials.

Thank god. We can't have people getting sick burns in their lats with those nooses.

Now, the guy who put them up says they're suspension bands for exercise.

But we can't believe him.

He's probably a white supremacist.

Victor Sengbe, who is black, told KGO-TV that the ropes were part of a rigging that he and his friends used as part of a larger swing system. He also shared video of the swing in use.

"Out of the dozen and hundreds and thousands of people that walked by, no one has thought that it looked anywhere close to a noose. Folks have used it for exercise. It was really a fun addition to the park that we tried to create," Sengbe said.

Black guy doing strength training in a public park...?

I gotta say, it checks out.

...

Nooses have been associated with the lynching of black people and used as symbols to taunt or terrorize African Americans.

Thanks, AP.

And sometimes, nooses are used to just absolutely BLAST your triceps and BLOW YOUR DELTS RIGHT THE FUCK OUT.

Schaaf [who is a white female progressive panderer and Karen] said officials must "start with the assumption that these are hate crimes." However, the mayor and Nicholas Williams, the city's director of parks recreation, also said it didn't matter whether the ropes were meant to send a racist message.

"Intentions don't matter when it comes to terrorizing the public," Schaaf said. "It is incumbent on all of us to know the actual history of racial violence, of terrorism, that a noose represents and that we as a city must remove these terrorizing symbols from the public view."

"The symbolism of the rope hanging in the tree is malicious regardless of intent. It's evil, and it symbolizes hatred," Williams said.

Did... did you see that part two paragraphs ago where a black guy said he put up suspension ropes for working out?

Did you see that?

Didja?

Police said several community members came forward during their initial investigation to say the ropes were used for exercise...

Shyeah! Exercising your White Privilege, more like it!

The company is considering putting a moratorium in Facebook advertising for all of July, which represents a multi-million dollar budget.

This is happening all over as these terrorist groups continue to pressure Facebook indirectly into going full twitter by going after the companies that advertise on their social network.

157 105 New Fox News Poll...

Biden 50
Trump 38

Trump's approval is 44, so this is the latest example of him trailing his approval rating in the head to head.

He's now losing whites, but is slightly ahead with hispanics. Looks like taking the white vote for granted isn't paying many dividends. Thanks, Jared!

For those looking to whine about the sample, it was D+6, which is about 2 pts off, but not awful, and you could make it an even split and Trump still loses badly since he loses Indies by a whopping 20 pts.

Looking at the poll, he's not making any real inroads with Blacks, so the Jared Kushner effect is a real doozy. Hemorrhaging white voters while looking for black votes never made any sense.

An art student hung six nooses, each a different color of the rainbow,
from a tree at a university in Tennessee on Monday as part of a class
project, the school said, provoking an uproar among students and staff
members who saw them as a symbol of racism and homophobia evocative of
the Ku Klux Klan.

"Intentions don't matter when it comes to terrorizing the public," Schaaf said. "It is incumbent on all of us to know the actual history of racial violence, of terrorism, that a noose represents and that we as a city must remove these terrorizing symbols from the public view."

"The symbolism of the rope hanging in the tree is malicious regardless of intent. It's evil, and it symbolizes hatred," Williams said.

Victor Sengbe, who is black, told KGO-TV that the ropes were part of a rigging that he and his friends used as part of a larger swing system. He also shared video of the swing in use.


Schaaf said officials must "start with the assumption that these are hate crimes."


Police said several community members came forward during their initial investigation to say the ropes were used for exercise and a man came forward to say he put them up several months ago.

The department said it is conducting a full investigation and had notified the FBI.




So a black man put them up and has video of how he used them but the white lefty mayor insists that they are nooses and considers them a hate crime. What the fck do the cops or FBI have to investigate? The guy who put them up and the people in the neighborhood have said what they are. Are they going to charge him with a hate crime for putting them up for exercise? We've gone well past the Twilight Zone. Reality is a completely foreign concept to the left

The weak principle just provides for the existence of assholes and the obvious possibility of meeting one. Not real useful but it sets up the more important second principle.

2. Asshole Theory Strong Principle - If every person you meet every day seems to be an asshole, well, guess what buddy you're the fucking asshole.

317 Took me 5 hours to get home, 4 hours and 45 minutes to go the last 3 1/2 miles.
1st getting the last 1/2 mile on highway had a catastrophic flat tire.
2nd had a time getting the spare down on a F-150 but very lucky had my mechanic tool box and used the sockets to get the tire out from under the truck.
3 had 1 lug nut that I couldn't get off, called the dealer for hits what to do, well its a metric which I didn't have. So had a smaller crescent wrench but that didn't work, so had a 13/16 socket, hammered it on as dealer recommended and 2 trys got off the last lug nut.
3rd thought I was going to be on my way in 5 minutes but couldn't get the tire off the lug bolts.
4 2 nice State patrolmen stopped and took their shot, even had spay oil as he suggested but didn't come off. I I thought I would get off the highway at least onto the next road which I knew had a good hard paved shoulder, they
said it was a good idea, use 4 way flashers.
5 drove off and tried again, couldn't get it off.
6 called my insurance road side service, set a good stocky guy but both of us, even with his floor jack under it wouldn't come off.
7 had to call for a flat bed truck to get it to the dealer as it was the closest anyway.
8 truck won't get worked on until tomorrow
9 walked the 3 miles home, took 1 hour.
5 hours total to get home from work.

363 I'm thinking there's room for a grand unified theory of racists with a similar structure.

Posted by: banana Dream


I'll give it a shot:

1. Weak Racist Principle - If you see a person and that person seems to be an racist then you might have met an Democrat.

The Weak Racist Principle just provides for the existence of racist Democrats and the obvious possibility of meeting one. Not real useful but it sets up the more important second principle.

2. Strong Racist Principle - If every person you meet every day seems to be a racist, well, guess what buddy, you're a high level politician in the Democrat Party and/or a leader of a Teacher's Union or a Public Employee Union.

The Grand Unifying Theory of Racism is: "All Democrats are Racists, Always, and the Party Should be Outlawed and Its Members Sued into Oblivion to Pay for Reparations."

The Grand Unifying Theory of Racism is mathematically expressed by the formula Evil = (D).

But most importantly, the state Hispanic Mob is pushing the repeal of Prop 209 through ACA 5.

This will, or should, activate the neareast and fareast Asians who have the most to lose, in school admissions, in jobs.

389 Women can also be very cruel bosses. I've had male and female bosses through my career. The male bosses were either good or indifferent while two of the female bosses were exceptionally cruel. By the same token some of the female bosses were exceptionally good. It seems that women don't do indifference when it's quite acceptable.
Posted by: Decaf at June 18, 2020 07:35 PM (xarPm)


So far I've had good luck with female bosses. One of the was so awesome I'd drop everything to go work for her again. The other was decent but green.

But one thing I noticed was there seems to be a lot of friction between female bosses and female subordinates. And I've worked with women who say they go out of their way not to work for another woman.

Finally, we went to the older lady who was the lead engineer in the office and asked what we should do..."fire her" was the suggestion. I warned at the time that the lady officer manager was going to wig out and that we need to do it when no one was in the office...but I my warning was ignored. The lady officer manager did wig out and tried to stuff her head in the commercial shredder, and then locked herself in the women's bathroom and security had to be called to drag her out in front of the entire office by her feet as I recall...interesting dynamic indeed!

It's like the way the West German economy boomed post-WWII. A lot of the deadwood industrial base got bombed into rubble, and was replaced with modern stuff.

In this case, "deadwood" = "blue cities".

Have you seen the deficit? One of the biggest concerns in Congress regarding more Federal aid is the fact that so many people are making more on unemployment than they would have working hanks to Uncle Sugar.

For a lot of people, their work shut down, and they got a raise. Now add in the Fed pumping money literally like never before.

And it's not like there's any benefit for them to publicly say they will vote for the President, because they get declared non-black.

Her squawk is that female bosses can be bitches and then want to be your friend. Female bosses say that men can be hardnosed but a hardnosed woman is a bitch.

What they fail to grasp, of course, is that hardnosed male bosses are hated and considered assholes, but they know it, and don't care.

"Teen Vogue" is actually quite new. They tried to launch a teen fashion magazine, it tanked, and then it tried to reinvent itself as a teen communist magazine.

490 our customers,

In recent weeks, we have shared with you the work we are doing to support communities during the unprecedented social impact from COVID-19. These initiatives span opening our public WiFi hotspots, offering two months free service to low-income families, offering free educational content for students, and many more.

Today I want to share with you how we are committed to doing our part to help foster equality and inclusion. Last week, we announced a comprehensive plan for all Comcast companies to be champions for equality. This work includes a new $100 million pledge over the next three years to help fight racism, injustice, and inequality on top of the commitments we currently make to many organizations supporting underrepresented communities.

Committed to Action: What We are Doing

We are harnessing our resources and skills across the company to build a focused multi-year, multi-phase action plan to help create sustainable and lasting change. As we build out our plan, we have taken these first steps:



We will elevate voices that need to be heard. Leveraging the reach and scale of our X1 and Flex video platforms, we will promote and amplify multicultural content, building on our commitment to educate, inform, and inspire. Say "Black Voices. Black Stories." into your Xfinity Voice Remote to explore a deep collection of documentaries, movies and series on Black culture and the history of racial inequality.

We will invest even more in our communities. Digital inequity disproportionately impacts communities of color. Over nearly a decade, our Internet Essentials program has connected more than two million households to the Internet at home, serving eight million people in need. We partner with thousands of school districts every day to ensure their students have the in-home connectivity they need to learn remotely. To help connect even more, we are extending our two months of free service offer for new customers through the end of 2020, and extending payment options for Internet Essentials customers.

We will grow our support of small businesses. Many small businesses have been affected by extended closures in the wake of COVID-19. An important part of our $100 million pledge is to help small businesses owned by people of color.

We will accelerate our diversity and inclusion efforts in our teams. We are proud of our efforts to date on advancing inclusion over 11,000 employees have joined our Black Employee Network, which provides thought-provoking speaker series, leading training & development programs, and plays a critical role in driving our business forward. We have now established an internal council to accelerate further our efforts to recruit, develop, advance and support people of color, as well as to promote the importance of being an effective ally.


We approach our efforts with a humble responsibility, but an important and dedicated purpose. We know we are only part of the solution, but I am personally committed to ensuring that our employees and you, our customers, feel the impact of our actions now and into the future.
Thank you,
Dave Watson
President & CEO
Comcast Cable

I haven't had that many bosses but The Bitch at the Psychopaths wasn't difficult to work for because she was a woman, it was because she was a terrible human being.

That entire place was about 85% female and I didn't really have any issues with the cattiness problem. Then again, I ignored the hell out of all the office politics. It's amazing what you can ignore when the Big Boss introduces you as his protege.

Just checked. Launched in 2003.

"Since 2015, following a steep decline in sales, , the magazine cut back on its print distribution in favor of online content, which has grown significantly. The magazine had also expanded its focus from fashion and beauty to include politics and current affairs. In November 2017, it was announced Teen Vogue would cease its print edition and continue as an online-only publication as part of a new round of cost cuts."

512 Tim Kaine recently said slavery was invented in the United States. As usual, he does not know what he's talking about.

Other people have already pointed out that slavery existed for thousands of years before the Mayflower landed at Plymouth Rock. I'm not here to talk about that.

I'm here to talk about the history of slavery in the American Colonies (later known as the United States of America).

When the colonies were first established here in America, there was no "slavery" as we understand the term.

What did exist was indentured servitude, and it worked like this... you had a debt. Maybe it was a monetary debt that you had no ability to pay. Maybe it was a "debt to society", because you'd committed some sort of crime, and the judge felt that sending you to prison would benefit neither you nor society.

In any event, you would have an indenture placed upon you. Someone in the American colonies would buy this indenture, and then you'd work for him, for free, for a period of up to seven years, to pay off the indenture.

If you were a really spectacular worker, you might earn your freedom earlier! Maybe in the range of two to five years, instead of seven.

Incidentally, some people who didn't have a debt to pay off would voluntarily indenture themselves, in order to pay for passage to the Colonies. It was no picnic being poor in England in the 17th Century, after all, and the Colonies already had a reputation there for being a Land of Opportunity. Your life sucks here, but you can go over there and make a new life for yourself for the cost of a mere indenture? That seemed like a pretty damned good deal for a lot of poor people in England!

Also, the person who bought your indenture was expected to provide for the start of your new, free, life after the indenture was paid off. He'd stockpile some clothes, money, livestock, and foodstuffs for you, and maybe even buy you some land.

It was definitely not a "free labor for life" sort of situation.

One thing I definitely thank the old man for... I never heard that.

I remember being 12 ('95) and talking about how the internet was going to change everything, and make everybody free to do and say as they pleased, blah blah blah.

"It'll never happen," he said, "They'll sell everyone an engine of tyranny in the name of convenience."

Well he turned out to be completely right about that, like everything else he dourly predicts.

It is now known in company lore as "the incident." I can't think of anything in a 35 year career in business more harrowing than that day.

We're much more hands on about the day to day office dynamics and management now than we were then, as much as we can be given the various locations we're in - but no one wants a repeat of "the incident."

525 What will also be interesting is watching companies figure out they don't need nearly as much office overhead as they had, and cut back on that expense.

What I think will be interesting is watching people figure out they can deduct expenses for working at home.

I haven't had to pay attention to it for a looooonnnnggg time but if work from home finally hits the tipping point of being viable, expect there to be a push for a standard deduction for that instead of some complicated formula.

526 That "Queer Eye" show is quite possibly the most conservative television show being produced right now.

Think about it...

The entire premise is "Get your shit together. Cut your damn hair. Patch things up with your parents. Put a suit on, fer Chrissakes. And stop acting like such a pussy and blaming everyone else for your problems all the time."

Outside of the fact that they like teh buttseks... it's damn near 1950's parenting, that show.

Up until the most recent season I would have said the same about "Shameless". The whole show is about low-class characters living in the ghetto who are trapped by their own bad decisions, and once they start to move beyond them and take responsibility for their lives they move up in the world.

We're still buying most of our consumer goods from China, so I suspect it will come out mostly as asset price inflation. That would explain the market, anyway. You're right, though. Before this settles out we're going to see big increases in the cost of living.

558 > expect there to be a push for a standard deduction for that instead of some complicated formula.

Yeah, you shouldn't have to log every minute you spend using the computer for business, or figure out how many square feet are devoted to purely business activities, or anything like that.

Or, even worse, have to have a dedicated computer and office space that's used for nothing BUT business.

The standard deduction could based on 40 hours a week of business use of your computer, and 40 hours a week of business use for the room you work in, so roughly a quarter of the expenses of each.

If you did have more usage, you should be allowed to keep logs and receipts and itemize.

563 Women aren't psychologically made for, and do not intuitively understand a hierarchical management system. They are built to want it to all be parallel control through social networking, and when they get put into a hierarchical system with each other sparks fly. The one in charge feels the need to constantly assert her authority, while the ones below her all they think they're just as good as her and since there's more of them, they should get to say what goes.

For men, hierarchical systems are natural and comfortable, and we prefer to work that way. If you're in charge, fine, you're in charge, just tell me what to do and I'll do it. If our situations are reversed, then the same goes in reverse. No big deal.

567 Indentured servitude became full-on slavery because of one man, Anthony Johnson.

He had come to Virginia as an indentured servant. The ship's manifest had him registered simply as "Antonio, a Negro."

He earned his freedom, and started up a farm of his own, and soon decided it was time for him to get some indentured servants of his own.

He bought the indenture of a fellow African named John Casor.

Casor may not have been exactly the greatest of workers. He apparently had enough free time to strike up a friendship with one of Johnson's neighbors, and he asked Johnson to free him from his indenture early, so he could go and work for this neighbor instead.

Johnson was pissed off at this, and basically told Casor, "You will never be free of me. I will own you forever."

Johnson then proceeded to sue Casor in the British courts that still adjudicated Colonial law at the time. Johnson basically told the court, "Hey, where I come from, we don't mess around with this indenture bullshit. You buy a slave, you own him, and he stays owned. I'm asking the court to respect the culture I came from, and grant me permanent ownership of John Casor."

The British court agreed, and John Casor became the first true slave in the American colonies in the year 1654.

True slavery was thus actually imposed on the Colonies by England, and indentured servitude quickly fell out of favor, because, yeah, if full-on permanent slavery is allowed, why buy someone's temporary indenture?
