shout out to all of the custodians, cooks, garbage truck drivers, cafeteria workers, bus drivers, waiters, and every one else whose jobs and entire fucking existences get shit on by the same people who wouldn’t know what to do with their lives if they had to do anything for themselves
And still, after all this time, the Sun has never said to the Earth
“You owe me.”
Look what happens with a love like that.
It lights up the sky.
The Good Ol’ Boys Roundup was an annual whites only event run by agents of the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms in southern Tennessee from 1980-1996. A senior manager at the Knoxville U.S. Attorney’s Office warned personnel not to attend due to reports of “heavy drinking, strippers, and persons engaging in extramarital affairs”. After allegations emerged that a “Ku Klux Klan attitude” pervaded the event a Senate Judiciary Committee was formed to investigate. “Nigger hunting licenses” were sold by vendors. (Wikipedia)
Keep in mind that the first run was done 2 years after i was born.
just in case anyone tries to somehow rationalize, mollify, or excuse this, just remember The GOBR also featured:
- a sign at the entrance to the event location noted a “ni**er checkpoint area”
- T-shirts were sold showing martin luther king, jr.’s face in sniper crosshairs, o.j. simpson’s head in a noose and black men sprawled across police cruisers with the phrase "boyz on the hood"
- A skit showing an officer wearing fake KKK garb sodomising a man wearing blackface with a dildo
an article in the philadelphia inquirer said the event consisted of marathon bouts of drinking, and made women feel unsafe. the senate subcommittee investigating the group found evidence of rape…surprise, surprise, it was all considered ‘unsubstantiated’.
Some extra notes.
