This is the kind of person who thinks they're pro-minority, but has no idea how to do it.
Even if this person wasn't white, god forbid we have integrated neighborhoods.
Eh, if only the neighborhoods stayed integrated. Often (middle class) white people moving into a lower class nonwhite neighborhood leads to gentrification, and the lower class people become priced out and have to move.
Not that this person isn't hypocritical for being a white person complaining about gentrification. But their sentiment makes sense to me. I'm a teaching at an all black high school. The students are 100% black, and there's only 4 white teachers. When I see a white person I don't know on campus, I'm like "who tf is this whitey". And I'm one of those 4 white teachers.
White people move out = white flight = BAD
White people movie in = gentrification = BAD
The statue of liberty was a gift from the French, wasn't it?
Yes, and the structure was designed by Gustave Eiffel.
She must be dating my ex. An actual conversation:
HIM - "Why would anyone go to France? Paris isn't in France."
ME - "Wait, what?"
HIM - "I dunno? When I think of France I think of Italy. They speak French in Italy, right?"
ME "Italian. They speak Italian in Italy."
HIM - "Whatever. I don't know that much about the UK I guess."
The stupid hurt.
to be fair, it catches you off guard a little if you don't think about it.
Right after that you think about it tho
ya, then you facepalm

She refuses to sink LIKE an anchor. I guess.
EDIT: Over 1000 points for THIS? Huh. I'm sure bad at guessing which of my posts will garner points. Next thing you know someone will give me gold for it. Heh heh heh...heh.
Maybe it's a metaphor: Even though I'm an anchor and meant to be at the bottom, I will fight my darndest so that doesn't happen.
No, I'm just reading too much into it.
With that haircut she also refuses to leave a store without seeing the manager...
In the old days of sailing ships, sometimes in a storm the anchor would get stuck on the bottom of the sea, and threaten to sink the ship. Only the bravest crew member would go out on deck and cut the anchor loose, imagine the strain on the rope and the snap back after cutting. The crewman who did this would be a hero. The anchor with a bit of cut rope attached is the correct image for this motto, not just an anchor by itself. Basically it means "I will go to heroic lengths not be dragged down".
why does he have problems every time he goes to an airport 😂
Because he is famous but dresses and presents himself as if he isn't.
He's been out of the spotlight for 10 years or so. He's aged and non skaters have forgotten about him.
Did Tony Hawk have some kind of horrific accident or gain a shit load of weight or something? People of the public seem to recognise him less and less.
Edit: I can't believe my most upvoted comment is about Tony Hawk and whether he has or has not gained weight or been in a terrible accident.
"In the wild, sometimes animals go crazy, usually from hunger or illness."
Yeah and one of those illnesses is fucking rabies.
Watch one video of a person dying from rabies and see if you want to take chances on a "fake vaccine"
Myth: 3 Americans die every year from rabies. Fact: 4 Americans die every year from rabies.
If it's intentional it's really clever. I doubt it though.
I think what happened is that the guy who made it just uploaded the wrong, unedited version.
Tony: Last I heard he was talking to a TSA agent while preparing for a flight.
TSA Agent: I wish exciting stuff like that happened around here.
My sister was an agent at an airport.
Phil Mickelson arrives at her booth. She asks if he has any checked luggage.
"Just my golf clubs"
"Oh do you golf often?"
"You could say that"
The next person in line decided to let her know that she was talking to one of the top golfers in the world.
She also met Stephen Hawking in a similarly clueless fashion. I don't remember the details, but she was helping him to his seat and found out that he is a physicist. "Oh cool, my brother does physics too!" I was a second year undergrad.
edit: I'm not judging her. I was telling these stories purposefully with a sense of dramatic irony to be entertaining. She is not a clueless person for not knowing these famous people. I myself wouldn't recognize, by name or otherwise, many A-list celebrities or famous sports personalities either.
edit2: She was not a TSA agent, this wasn't even in the US. I said agent, because i forgot the rest of the title, it was more like "Ticketing agent" or "Gate agent" depending on where she was working that day. This was not a security job. In both examples she was just making small talk to be friendly.
"Oh cool, my brother does physics too!"
Hawking:In fact, everyone does physics.
Not sure why this is so unbelievable to some people. His ID would say Anthony Hawk, not Tony. And he would look like an old guy now, so less recognizable.
That doesn't justify qualify
"I don't make mistakes!"
...justify as proof
I don't get it. Just own your mistake. Nobody cares.
That proves I was lying, that doesn't count.
I'm just impressed that the guy admitted his mistake. That's pretty rare these days.
Which way is Mecca? Oh fuck it, just face the walls.
Same. Biggest shock in the post
Lmao right? I know next to nothing about Islam and even I know they pray facing Mecca.
