I can’t stand it. I’ve banned a fair number of people for being vile scumbags, and they keep coming back and shitting out their crap in the comments…even when they know they’ll be blocked. In the thread, The Charleston shooting: the prequel, a long-ago banned slymepitter (you know, that simple little place that specializes in exposing plagiarism, just like gamergate is about ethics in journalism) named bovarchist (some of you may remember him) decided to plop this in the comments:
Black people just don’t get it, do they? I’ve never seen one of these videos where the black guy is being perfectly calm and cooperative, and the cop just shoots him because ‘racist’. It’s always the same; the black guy gets more and more belligerent, while the cop tries harder and harder to calm him down, and then…dead black guy, and who really gives a fuck? If black lives don’t matter to them, why should they matter to me? And what kind of scumbag buys a Mercedes when he owes child support? But hey, he liked to dance and sing, so I guess he’s a great guy.
I know this isn’t getting through Myers’ defensive shield, but damn do black people ever need a reality check. You can get pissed off about racism, or you can start acting whiter and have a better life. I really don’t care either way what you decide.
At least bovarchist provides clarity: that, everyone, is the bigotry we must fight against. That is the kind of person who gets banned from Pharyngula, and finds a home at the slymepit.
Well, bigots and really, really stupid people.
