Blind Item #1 - Easy Easy

What A list country singer once was at a movie theatre and saw there was a black man in the same row. The singer got up and moved a few rows to the front and said, "Now that (n word) is behind me where he belongs."

ALL OF THEM? (EXPECT DOLLY)

How is this easy? It doesn't even give the gender of the singer...

Willie?

Yikes!!! I hope it's not Darius Rucker!!!

Whoever this is should be shot. What an asshole.

For the hell of it, Kenny Rogers. I had an ex who was his grounds manager and he said the guy was a total dickweed.

katie said...

Hank Williams Jr

LottaColada said...

How is this "easy easy?" We don't even have a clue if it's a man or a woman.

joymama said...

What a jerk.

Rosemary Young said...

For what it's worth, if you start Googling "racist" and "country singer," the name "Toby Keith" pops up in the box as a suggested search term. Of course, that just means a lot of people have *asked* whether he is a racist.

Christopher Cruz said...

Scratch my first guess- I think it's Taylor Swift!!!

Tracie A. the a-hole who wears confederate flag ear piece

Rangeman Manoso said...

What a piece of shit who ever this is. I hope someone punches this fucktard in the throat.

noseygal48 said...

Omg this is awful. I hate these blinds......

ms snarky said...

Sometimes I like country music, then I remember the whole social attitude in the south and turn the channel.

Diamond Girl said...

I do NOT believe this would be Toby.

ms snarky said...

I can believe this was Hank Williams Jr. He seems like a total creepy jackass.

Vicki Cupper said...

I'll go with Toby Keith or Alan Jackson.

TinselSass said...

@Rosemary Young... Wonderful to see the Queen is alive and well and posting on CDaN. Fantastic!!!

Vicki Cupper said...

Oh, wait. I forgot about Hank Williams, Jr. Although, I could totally see him telling the manager to make the black guy leave.

Vicki Cupper said...

LOL @TinselSass

Angela said...

I've met more flat out racists in the north than I've ever met in the south. Its more of the NIMBY type but it's pervasive and bad.

el said...

Hardly think it would be Toby Keith considering he was best friends with Wayman Tisdale and wrote a heartfelt tear jerker song (Cryin for Me) for him days after his passing.

Glitter said...

@ms. snarky: please don't disparage the entire south on a stereotype. Thanks.

Princess Pine said...

Trace Adkins. He just stirred up controversy for wearing a confederate earpiece while singing at the Rockefeller tree lighting.

Jemtastic said...

@ Christopher Cruz: LOL! So wrong...poor Darius.

Silly Girl said...

Way to be a shit stirrer, Enty. This blind isn't true.

bernbelle said...

Ms. Snarky needs to issue a retraction - that sweeping generalization of the entire population of the South is just as offensive as racism. For realsies.

Pogue Mahone said...

What do you expect from a redneck hillbilly?

Seachica said...

Randy Travis. That guy is nuts

Tuxedo Cat said...

Sputtering, sputtering...ARGH!!!!

What a total entitled, insecure, arrogant, stubborn, ASSHAT!!!!

@bernbelle

No, racism is much more offensive than ms. snarky's opinion. I think you are forgetting where most of the slavery happened.

Staple611 said...

So do we have it narrowed down to either Trace or Hank Williams? I'll go with Hank.

Sandbox720 said...

I really doubt its toby keith. He has a redneck persona but he isn't racist. He has said good things about Obama and used to be a Democrat. He is an "independent now" ...not that it has much to do with anything. I know that its not fair to assume someone is or isnt racist because of their political beliefs but he seems more intelligent and less ignorant than his country singing compadres.

MadLyb said...

I haven't listened to country for decades, but I know it's not Willie or Toby. Both of them are really good guys. I wouldn't call Hank Williams Jr a singer never mind A-List. Loved his dad, though. So my guess is that this is made up like that blind about the celebrity who thought they were texting Prince Harry, LOL.

On a side note: I've met more racists up here in Washington State then in Utah or Florida, but I live in Snohomish County. Then again, you don't run into minorities in Utah too much. In Florida, the racism was subversive. On the other hand, the people I met in the South were always baking pies for me and inviting me into their homes. Southern hospitality is real.

portlandjewel said...

Sorry, when you're brandishing the confederate flag then that's what you get. Its a symbol that stands for slavery. Its disgusting and embarassing that people here still wave it proudly. Its not a stereotype when their waving around a symbol that means we think slavery is so right we are going to start our own country, erect our own flag and elect our own slave loving, racist President. His name was Jefferson Davis and his flag was confederate and its still flying today. That's not stereotype, that's blatant, overt, PROUD racism.

portlandjewel said...

And where the confederate flag still waves proudly!

portlandjewel said...

My experience is the exact opposite of that.

bernbelle said...

To Tuxedo Cat and portlandjewel, Just remember that not ALL of the South, as intimated by Ms. Snarky, are Confederate-flag waving, racist rednecks.

That assumption is born out of the same ignorance as racism (and any other -ism, for that matter). I am a proud, life long Southerner who neither listens to country music, waves Confederate flags, nor judges people based on the color of their skin. To lump all people under one banner, and then judge all those people accordingly, is the very definition of discrimination.

And the fact that slavery existed in the South 150 years ago reveals nothing about the current state of race relations amongst its citizenry.

I do, however, judge people based on the ignorance of their comments and the stupidity of their guesses to blind items.

Staple611 said...

I'm sure not everyone in the South is racist (like the good folks at the Southern Poverty Law Center, for instance). But c'mon - the South's fight to stand by the Confederate Flag because of "heritage" and "pride" is very, very thinly veiled.

Gina said...

The confederate flag is not a symbol of slavery or racism! It is a symbol of a group of states that decided that THEY knew better what was good for them than the central government. People think the civil war was about slavery but it was about states rights and THAT is what the confederate flag is about... and in this climate I can totally see wearing it!

Cee Kay said...

Agreed, Staple! Trace Adkins sounds like an idiot trying to defend his wearing the Confederate flag on his earpiece. The "heritage" he's so proud of fought and killed for the right to own other people. :(

Staple611 said...

@Gina - most central of the things that those states thought they knew better about was OWNING BLACK PEOPLE AS PROPERTY. So yeah, it is a symbol of slavery and racism.

Syko said...

I've lived in the south for over 20 years and have seen less racism here than I ever saw in the midwest. All of you who like to bad-mouth the south for a stereotype are being just as prejudiced as you accuse us of being.

At the risk of starting a general conflagration, I'd like to defend people's rights to show some pride in their confederate heritage. The confederate flag does not just stand for racism, it also stands for a proud idea, a way of life, a historical era. People died for what they believed in, and to disparage them as all war-mongering racists is to do them an injustice. There was slavery in the south, because it was a largely agricultural area of the country, and the slave labor was needed to run the huge farms. Most southerners had smaller farms and no slaves, but let's just go ahead and call all southerners pro-slavery, so we can feel superior. In the north they had factories employing 10 year old children for 12 hour days. There is a lot of our history, both north and south, that is unsavory, but to pretend that only the south is to be reviled is wrong.

urban chaos said...

Whoever it is, I hope this is an entry reveal soon!!

Staple611 said...

@Syko:

Most of that is crazy talk, but I'll just choose one sentence to take up:

"There was slavery in the south, because it was a largely agricultural area of the country, and the slave labor was needed to run the huge farms."

Explain to me why (a) it had to be slave labor instead of paid labor, and secondarily, (b) explain to me how and why the horrors of slavery - the beatings, the lynchings, the KKK, etc. - helped the ultimate goal of increasing your agricultural productions.

Go ahead, I'll wait.

portlandjewel said...

Yah right. Whatever.

Jolene Jolene said...

Syko--"There was slavery in the south because it was a largely agricultural area of the country, AND THE SLAVE LABOR WAS NEEDED TO RUN HUGE FARMS." Really? Really?!

discoflux said...

Slow clap for bernbelle.

I have lived in the south my entire life and the very small contingency of people that stand up to protest the Confederate flag to be flown at public institutions as heritage are not looked upon with great favor. However, it would be foolish to expect the eradication of something that is indeed a large portion of our nation's history and an example of the evolution of our nation. I believe in peoples' right to collect historic memorabilia. While I certainly don't advocate proudly flying the confederate flag, I think it may behoove some of you to delve into the history of the civil war and the manner in which some of the confederate soldiers were forced to fight and the fact that there were also native tribes that fought with the confederacy. It's highly irresponsible to say that everyone who lives in the south must be racist because of a war that happened over 150 years ago. There are always going to be nutjobs who yell loudly about their misguided beliefs, but saying the entire south is racist is akin to saying that all Germans are Nazis.

Jemtastic said...

Sorry but the Confederate States of America were akin to a terrorist group. They lost and their movement was ground into the dust. I was born and raised in the South, still live here and am proud to be Southern but I am an American first and will not wear the emblem of a vanquished 'power'.

I have yet to see Black, Asian, Latino, Native American, Jewish or other minority Southerners donning the Stars and Bars, so spare me with the 'it's a Southern heritage thing' bullshit because that's exactly what it is. When I see ALL Southerners standing behind the Confederate flag, I'll reconsider but I'm not holding my breath.

portlandjewel said...

I do not now nor never will understand "pride" in confederate heritage. It was born out of a desire and presumed right to own and abuse people.

lazyday603 said...

Toby Keith is about the dumbest man who ever lived so I'll say this is him. At least Forrest Gump became friends with Bubba.

Onyx Loathes Hydrangeas said...

@gina let me guess, you were one of those who signed a petition for your state or secede? Lolz.

C.L.Russell said...

Lol! Yeah, its him, totally! :-D

bernbelle said...

Please let me be clear - I think the confederate flag is abhorrent. I think it is a clear symbol of racism and hatred, and it's status as a cultural or historical symbol does not overshadow it's larger symbolism (think the swastika).

I will jump to the defense of the South, as we are not all racist, but I think that flying, wearing, or in anyway rocking a Confederate flag is gross. Gross.

discoflux said...

Agreed, bernbelle. I don't advocate or agree with the idea that the confederate flag should fly along side the American flag. I hope that the message I was trying to get across did not make it seem that way. I simply wanted to state that not all southerners fought for the war willingly. Thankfully we have the gifts of hindsight and increased education and tolerance in this century to HOPEFULLY maintain a civil discourse.

Staple611 said...

@bernbelle - yeah, the whole time this argument has been going on, I've been thinking about those morons who inscribe swastikas on shit and are like "OMG GUYS, don't you know?! It was totally a Native American symbol before it was corrupted by the Germans. Educate yourselves!"

Nope. It doesn't matter what it used to mean, it means what it means now, and if you're displaying it, you're doing it with full knowledge of the severe negative connotations of the symbol.

Seachica said...

Well said, syko! To say the civil war was only about slavery is to be ill informed. The northern states were dominating federal government, and policies were not favorable for the agrarian, agricultural based south. States wanted to limit the power of the federal government, keeping many issues at the state level -- which is what is actually laid out in the constitution. Only a small percentage of white southerners owned slaves, far smaller than the percentage of those that supported the confederacy. Do you really think that the non slaveowners fought for the right to own slaves? They fought for states rights, and to protect a way of life that extended far beyond slavery. Remember, history is always written by the victors that have their own agenda in playing up or down certain elements.

When a southerner displays the confederate flag, it is not because they want slavery. It is a display of pride in their culture and way of life.

Oh, and don't go thinking that I'm a racist southerner. I grew up out west, and moved to the south 20 years ago thinking that southerners were stereotyped racists. Living there, and meeting lots of southerners, changed my perspective a lot. Sure. Some folks are racist. But so are many in other parts of the country. And I have had far more contact with blatant racists in other parts of the country -- usually because they rarely interact with blacks and so are able to remain ignorant.

The world isn't as black and white as you make it out to be. There are a whole lot of shades of grey.

discoflux said...

@Seachica - If I'm believe the fine literature of this age, there are at least 50 shades.

cece said...

Again, not everybody in the South does this. There are rednecks and white trash in every part of the country, not just the South. Very dangerous to stereotype ANY group of people.

alwyshateposuers said...

I second!

alwyshateposuers said...

lmao! you know it was totally hootie!

Seachica said...

Lol, discoflux

Jolene Jolene said...

Oh god, come on. No one thinks ALL Southerners are racist and ALL Northerners are not. People make sweeping statements, yes, but no need to shake your fists in the air and insist everyone is calling all Southerners racists. Racism is everywhere.

Ms Cool said...

LOL @ discoflux.

J-Mo said...

hahaha i'm glad no one thought of Dwight Yoakam because it specifies A List. In Canada he has left small venues when he sees too many Natives. A native lady I know waited in line to get his autograph and when he saw her getting close to the table, that's when he decided he'd signed enough for the night. I love his music but I would hate to support his career.

Angela said...

Kenny Chesney, but what he meant was that he wanted black guys behind him IN BED.

nancer said...

as much as i detest this discussion, i'm going to say one thing.

the confederate cause was about dissolving the united states of america. it was an uprising---over the issue of slavery (no matter what they try to claim now since that sounds so bad)---and they wanted to leave the US and form their own country.

you CANNOT take pride in that and call yourself a good american or a patriot---at least not an american patriot. that's an oxymoron.

they didn't want to BE americans anymore. so sick and fucking tired of all this 'confederate pride' shit. how can you be proud of fighting a war over owning other human beings?

the war is over and the united states of american won.

Aoife said...

@Jemtastic I think you said it correctly.

I really want to like country music but when I see its stars like Trace Adkins (Atkins) wearing the stars and bars as an earpiece in NYC I really have to step back from the idiom.

Someone mentioned Hank Williams Jr. Hank Williams Sr owes his career to a black man named Rufus Payne and never denied it. Yet his son has shown himself to be a complete idiot.

There are truly talented musicians working in the country music idiom but until the South faces the elephant that is always in the room country music will always have "Oh yeah" status as in "oh, yeah, county music".

Aoife said...

Hank Williams Sr "owed" his career to Rufus Payne. It's a fascinating story. Just Wiki Hank Williams.

The Black Cat said...

I agree that not all Southerners are racist and the Confederate flag is a symbol of a bygone era, an era that included slavery but there was more to it than just slavery to which some of you seem to be dwelling on far too much. There is good and bad to just about everything including the child labour that the North practised that you conveniently gloss over.
I would be interested in knowing what some of you loud mouths have done to enrich the lives of racial minority groups lately, bashing Southerners doesn't count.

Cornbread said...

David Allan Coe.

Diamond Girl said...

Obviously you don't know much about him.

FlirtyChick74 said...

I agree ---> katie said...Hank Williams Jr

He was all over the news spewing his racism during the campaign. That's why this is easy-easy. Ted Nugent did the same thing but I don't think he's a country musician, is he?

Jays mama said...

Why give this person the privilage of anonymity? I am so tired of Blinds where the person (there have been several in the past few months about a hugely racist actor, actress and now country star) is publicly horrible and yet given the luxury of anonymity.

If they had the balls to be horrible in public, Enty shouldn't worry about getting sued.

The fear of lawsuit is the only reason i can figure out why blind reveals as of late have been 1) gossip over 4 years old OR 2) about the dead.

Grow a pair man and tell us something good!

Plus, these people deserve to be villified for their actions. If you're not part of the solution, Enty - you are part of the problem. Sorry.

The Black Cat said...

Nancer, I'm sorry you have been brainwashed about the Civil War but do yourself a favour and educate yourself.
Slave labour still exists, Mexicans are flown all over North America and work the fields in agricultural areas because they can be paid less than minimum wage, they are kept in barrack type accommodations and aren't really free to go as they please after work - because they are too exhausted from working hard from dawn to dusk. Funny how no-one says anything about that though. No outrage over that.

john b. said...

Ms Snarky you're an idiot and I'm sure you've been called that many times too.

Shakira Eakins said...

I live in the south and am African American and there is racism here, but there are also a lot of wonderful, down to earth people. I have also experienced ignorant, racist people in the north, on the east coast and in Europe. It happens everywhere. People are stupid.

john b. said...

If you think the confederate flag represents owning slaves then you're stupid. The Civil War was not fought because of slavery in the south. Crack open a book and learn something for a change.

Lauren said...

Alan Jackson is one of the nicer country singers out there. I worked at an upscale restaurant in Nashville in high school and we had country singers in a lot. There are some that I liked and now don't based on their behavior to service staff, fans, etc,

I think it has to be one of the older country singers (Willie, Hank, etc) I realize I'm stereotyping in my guess but old people a-don't seem to have much of a filter, and b-the more racist comments I've heard in my life have come from older people since they were around for desegregation and the riots.

Alma said...

Trace adkins just wore at confederate flag earpiece at the rockerfeller christmas tree lighting. There are dicks everywhere. Me personally, i am scared to go to arizona. It's like florida level psychosis but with racism.

AnotherChris said...

I'd say Toby Keith. He (allegedly) made a number of racist comments when being driven around Tallahassee by a very good friend of mine prior to a concert a number of years ago.

Layna Day said...

The Confederate flag should not be recognized in any way. That side lost. And losers like that don't deserve recognition. Fly if it you want, wave it high. It just means you associate with LOSERS. And I want WINNERS!

Illuminated Leaf said...

I am not a southerner, but I will make one point. The Civil War was fought over the RIGHT TO SECEDE FROM THE UNION, was a legal thing to do! Georgia, upon ratifying the Constitution, was allowed the right to secede from the Union at any time. The 14th Amendment to the Constitution created the Equal Protection clause, which means, in essence, if it applies to one it applies to all. The Union, by military force, stopped a legal act on the part of the Confederate states. As someone has already pointed out, the victor writes the history, so this fact is kept out of mainstream teaching of our kids. Regardless of what you think of slavery, the southern states constitutional rights were violated by a president most Americans were taught is only a hero with no flaws to his thinking.

Illuminated Leaf said...

I will add that the 14th amendment created the Equal Protection Clause in specific, ironically to use against the South after the war. The concept and court precedent was in place before.

Sis said...

I agree with JaysMama....whoever this is please "out" him or her for that matter, and the Real Housewife who slapped her child (in a previous blind) if it's all done in public? I think perception would change to these social losers who make a lot of money entertaining, I would rather give money to someone who deserves it than to a closet racist.

@Ruminated Leaf

Well, I guess you didn't spew all that in *support* of the abolition of slavery, did you?

The right of an individual to be free is far and above more important than any White Power semantics you can ever bring to the discussion.

Carolyn said...

I live in Virginia and used to defend the confederate flag quite staunchly for a lot of the reasons people are throwing around - culture, heritage, ancestry, history. Then one day in college, an African American friend of mine and I got into a discussion about it. I told her my view and she then explained to me why she and others viewed it as so offensive. It was like a light bulb moment for me. I totally got it. Regardless of WHY the war was really fought - and I wrote a paper on the South's right to secede - I now choose not to celebrate a symbol so hurtful to millions of Americans because it represents a time when they had no rights. I choose compassion and understanding over "heritage". That's just the way I roll.

Plus, if I am honest, some of the biggest racists I personally know are confederate flag wavers. I don't mean that to be a sweeping generalization, but an anecdote related to my personal experiences.

Sis said...

I do love the discussions of the cdaners...to take a topic and turn it into a heated discussion...

I hate to say how much prejudice still exists today (in my family), lessor yes, but still here and all of it on my dad's side who is originally from West Virginia, and now most live here in California. I see it in some of my facebook friends over the Hispanic population here in So Cal.

It catches me by surprise that racism still exists in a major way for a lot of people only it's guarded and secretive. Or, an argument or political topic will start with ..."I am not a racist BUT....." I hate that.

PuggleWug said...

I've lived in the south, as well as the north. Racism was more out in the open in the south. I'm not saying every southerner is racist. In my experience, a majority were awesome people. It just seemed more prevalent there.

Layna Day said...

The reasons for the Civil War are nuanced, but it mostly goes back to slavery in some measure. Not that the North cared about slavery as much as history would lead us to believe. They were more concerned about holding on to the union formed by the USA less than 90 years prior to then. And the North didn't like the idea of not be able to compete with the South when it came to manufacturing, as the South used free labor and wasn't as reliant on technology. But the South was trying to expand slavery because their land was exhausted from the constant cotton and tobacco crops. They needed to give their acreage a rest and use other land. The North, sensing a moving in on their money, wasn't having that.

But make no mistake. Slavery played a part in nearly every aspect of the US Civil War. There is no point in trying to massage the matter. It's pretty obvious what was happening. But one would be right in saying that slaves' right to freedom had nothing to with it. The masses barely cared about that so much.

Mango said...

I'm dying to know what movie was playing. What's on a racist's "got to see!" list?

Layna Day said...

2016: Obama's America, Mango.

;-D

PuggleWug said...

So owning a human being was the right way to go about running a farm? The hell?

Lisa said...

Oh here's a news flash- there was slavery in the North as well for a time! So what "Yankee" do we need to lynch?

Some idiot above claims that the Confederate Flag needs to be abolished because they lost. Well, I guess the German and Japanese flags need to be abolished as well. Stupid argument.

It needs to be abolished because of the hatred and yes IGNORANCE of people that troll this site to stir crap up.

Geez whiz people- Gossip site. Chill.

Spike Gomes said...

As you can see from my picture, I'm not white. I can sympathize a bit with the Confederate cause a bit, since I'm far removed from it. In short, they had the right to do what they did, but they did it for all the wrong reasons. Yes, slavery is horrible, but to paint all regionalist and secessionist impulses as derived from racism is to deny that at the time, it was legitimate to secede... and that the current laws against it are unjust.

I'm Hawaiian. I would like to see my home return to it's previous status before the illegal annexation. As it is, it cannot, even if it wanted to.

Also while, I would agree that Southern racists love to wrap themselves in the Confederate flag, not everyone who loves the Confederate flag and Dixie memorabilia are racists. A military friend of mine has a big one on his pick-up truck back home. If there's anything he hates, it ain't blacks and browns like myself. It's snobby brow-beating redneck despising city-slicking yanks. I rather share his opinion. He ain't rich. His family up in the highlands of Tennessee is as poor as a black family in the lowlands. Even if he didn't wear his Southern identity on his shoulder, the rest of the "sunzabitches" would look down on him for hunting, mudding, having holy rollers in the family and generally coming from "Deliverance" country. Why not extend a huge middle finger to the society that would shit on you, blame you for keeping the blacks down, while they who call you racist put their kids in private schools and defund their cities public schools into prison-like hellholes, and gentrify the black and brown people out of town without a second thought?

IMakeNoSense said...

Your talking about lynching and calling someone an idiot and yet are telling people to chill?

You seriously just made my day. Thank you.

JSierra said...

Well played Enty, well played.

Layna Day said...

That idiot would be me, Lisa. Feel free to use my name.

And last I checked, Germany and Japan still exist and the US has no sovereignty over them. The Confederate states came back into the Union. Which means they no longer exist. Which means they don't need or deserve a flag.

I stand by my 'stupid' point.

Layna Day said...

I should say they no longer exist as their own country. The states exist, because I live in one!

FSP said...

I agree JSierra.

BettorOffSingle said...

What horrible English Enty uses.

"WHAT celebrity" when it should be "WHICH cdelebrity."

"Try AND" when it syhould be "try TO"

When he begins an article with "WHAT singer," he might as well just say "I am a total idiot who never bothered to learn proper English and I'm so damn proud of this I won't change even after it's pointed out to me!"

Time was if you were in the media, you were 3expected to know the language, even if your readers did not.

Now the media is dumb and the audience is dumber.

Tuxedo Cat said...

@Better Off Single

This is a gossip blog -- it doesn't purport to be "Grammar Today"

Besides, I see at least 2 spelling errors in your post, and I'm not looking that hard

Elissa said...

Yes, there are many kind and compassionate people in the South, much as there are disgustingly racist neanderthals in the North. But I can state this from experience: I used to have a boyfriend whose job entailed many frequent transfers to different cities. He was a kind, smart, successful man, the sort that one could hold up as an example to others. He was also Vietnamese, having been airlifted out of Saigon as a child at the end of the war. Only in Southern states did we endure the glares of white men while we were out in public.
I'm sure there were northerners or midwesterners that didn't approve of our relationship, but it was never expressed openly, and I was NEVER frightened of the possibility of violence in a parking lot upon leaving a public place.
Perhaps the South has such a reputation for racism because the racists there are more blatant about it.

Also, @BettorOffSingle, this is the Internet Age; proper grammar and correct spelling have sadly fallen by the wayside. They're not coming back any time soon.

Unknown said...

Toby Keith. Easy.

Jenn said...

Trace Adkins used to be from Louisiana, however, apparently he moved because he put out out a song called I'm From Ala-Freakin-bama thereby earning my undying hatred, and, also, he went to school at Tech. (Which sucks royal!) So, yeah, I think for the tasteless earwig, just being a big dumb redneck and making us all look bad, and last but certainly not least that stupid song, we should sanction him for all eternity. But, my guess for this blind is pretty boy Blake Shelton. He's joker, but that sometimes hides a lot of rage.

Jaiden_S said...

Trace Adkins, since he was photographed yesterday with a confederate flag earpiece.

GemTwist said...

John... you have a poor grasp on reality. I bet you think it was all about 'state's rights', huh? Guess what? State's rights was ALL ABOUT SLAVERY. It's like, the exact words the Confederacy used. In black and white print. Stop being so deliberately obtuse and open your eyes.

GemTwist said...

Don't be mad because she knows how to comprehend facts and accurately recall history and you can't.

GemTwist said...

Omg Gina...STATES RIGHTS WAS ALL ABOUT PROTECTING SLAVERY. What sort of schools did you people go to, for the love of Pete!?

GemTwist said...

Oh, hi straw man! what does this have to do with anything? Confederate flag= symbol of a failed never-was country that refused to Not own slaves. Child labor, what have YOU done=absolutely off the topic.

GemTwist said...

I bet the slaves thought he was a hero.

therealjadedentrepreneur said...

This is Hank Williams. Live under a rock? He was recently in the news for racist, ridiculous remarks on Fox News. hello? Not that hard.

Magnus 21 Gunz said...

First if any of you are black I would like u to know that the Confederate flag nor civil war had anything to do with racism. The war and the flag ate about economics. The practice of slavery was not made illegal...it's only illegal to profit off of slavery. That's the only way wars are won.. By crippling the economy.

Yeah but Hank's comments weren't actually racist, it was just some weird ramble about playing golf with Obama and then he name dropped some socialists (whose name I can't spell or recall) to sound smart. Or, maybe it was racist code talk and I just haven't drank enough 'shine with my rowdy friends to get WTF he was talking about. He's also not A-list, not any more. He's just a has-been who let his mockin' bird mouth overload his hummin' bird ass and lost the one source of revenue he still had. No more Monday night football for him.

So, they probably weren't seeing *Lincoln*?

Please reveal this one, Enty, so we can spit whenever we hear his/her name.

This is Hank Williams. Live under a rock? He was recently in the news for racist, ridiculous remarks on Fox News. hello? Not that hard.

Can you please provide the quotes of alleged racism? Thanks.

BTW, comparing someone to hitler is not racist (if that's what he did), but I look forward to your argument.

Thanks for all you brave people who have said, "not ALL Southerners are racist."

You forgot, "unless they are Republican".

And nobody in this theater reacted to this insult? That is shameful.
There are idiots, bigots and racists everywhere. You won t eradicate them. But it is when the rest of the people let it go and stay coy that freedom is in danger.
The absence of reaction says more about the level of racism in a population than personal census.
If 99 non-racists let one racist act and do nothing, it s still a racist place.
Would this happen in a Southern state more than in a Northern state? I don t know, never been.

This is craziness. So owning a slave, raping slaves, ripping families apart by selling slaves, breeding slaves like animals, murdering slaves, depriving PEOPLE of their humanity by making them slaves was necessary because the south has a lot of land??? Seriously? Why not hire laborers? The rich land owners could have let their wealth "trickle down". And to compare child labor to slavery illustrates how uninformed you are. It's frightening how uninformed you are. Please read a book.

Re: Racism: just as prevalent in the north as the south...just not as obvious....

If you'd like to do some more reading about racism look up Tim Wise.

This got ugly. I'm from NJ and live in Texas but my grandmother's family is from West Virginia, the people who broke away from Virginia over slavery (simplified-I'm not here to give a history lecture). I'm racially mixed and husband is white. The only place I've ever been called hateful racial names is in WV. There are idiots everywhere and to be fair, I made some good friends in WV and met some lovely people.

MadLyb is just wrong. I grew up in Washington state. I experienced very little racism. I moved to Atlanta as an adult and WOW! what an experience that was. Racism flying both ways.

TobyKeith is far from dumb,he has a very high IQ and very good businessman and songwriter.

My 1st thought was Reba,for whatever reason. When it was mentioned could be Male,I thought of Merle Haggard.

deran said...

is Trace still A-list? Hank Jr owes a lot of his style to black music also. I doubt Willie;maybe George Strait? he seems to have a sort of regal manner. Kenny Rogers has worked with Lionel Richie among others and Dolly has costarred with Queen Latifah and friends with Oprah;so I really dont think its her.

deran said...

OK;now that I think about it,I'm sure it would be Charlie Daniels;he has had songs and comments that are racist. He seems straight out of the KKK. His hatred of Obama seems to be mostly due to race.

deran said...

To be fair;it is possible they were expecting the person to be disruptive on cellphone,or maybe had a bad odor..it might be a reason for calling names..but the funny thing is,if you didnt trust the person,you would want them in front of you;certainly not behind you.
