Re: “How to Buy an Assault Rifle in North Carolina

By the way they will never repeal the 2nd ammendment so if that's what you want France is your best bet, by the way Mexico is a gun free country yet it's one of the most violent countrya in the world maby we should turn in our kitchen knives and household products that can be used as explosives which by the way is allot

here's evidence of the startling changes that we've experienced over that last 50 years, and perhaps a hopeful vista for any curious sexual minorities in your readership:

Re: “An Initiative to Counter Discrimination Against Female Theater Directors Provokes a Discrimination Complaint in Raleigh

The pendulum is swinging on both sides but it's great to see how hard it's swinging to the left in many local areas compared to the hard right pendulum swing that elected Donald J. Trump. http://killingthebreeze.com/pendulum_effect/

Re: “The INDY Endorses Hillary Clinton for President

Nice job handing the country over to Donald Trump, idiots.

One month later... what have we learned? Well maybe, if you're a "progressive" newspaper, maybe endorse the progressive candidate next time? Especially when it's someone who has much better chances to win. I'm just throwing ideas out there.

Re: “McDougald Terrace Residents Say the Cop Who Killed Frank Clark Has Terrorized Them for Years

What's the point of submitting complaints about bad cops and bad policies?

People in and near "Target Areas" like McDougald Terrace & Rochelle Manor
[where a Latino teenager from Riverside High-School was subjected to a public ANAL
strip-"search" by cops because he was dating a Black girl]
have complained for years about police harassment in general, and specific cops
in particular, and complaints about the complaint process
and policies
"fall on deaf ears".

Complaints about sewer-mouth cops (calling women "b!tch" for example) are not new
[I've complained about cops calling women "ugly" "fat-ass" "b!tch" and "porch monkeys", etc]
and shortly before La-La-La-I-don't-want-to-hear-about-it-Lopez was forced out,
WNCN investigates
http://WNCN.com/2015/08/09/police-use-of-f…
reported that the Durham Police Department is worse than any department in the area in
failing to document use of force, including use of weapons.

In August, I asked Chief Davis about some cops jerking their guns out so often
other cops call them "jerk-offs," and that the Durham Police Department does not
document use of force like other departments do, especially against pedestrians,
but that if the DPD required its cops to document it when they
pull a weapon and they do not do so, they can be fired BEFORE
they shoot someone. She said cops aren't gonna tell on themselves, and that
it is the responsibility of civilians to report police force use of force,
and that they can't know what their cops are doing unless we report them;
when I said desk officers don't document complaints taken to them,
she said we should take our complaints to the Civilian Police Review Board;
they're useless, will not take complaints about police misconduct, &
Durham One Call [560-1200] will not take complaints about police misconduct.
She said she wanted to talk to me after the meeting, but then
when I said I've been stopped hundreds of times and searched at gunpoint,
she said: "I wonder why?" and turned her back and walked away.
The next day, at McDougald Terrace [Nat'l "Night Out"], I told her
I wanted to answer her [snarky] question: I said I used to live across the street,
in Lincoln Apartments, worked there and at Durham Tech & NCCU, tutoring kids,
including kids from McDougald Terrace,
and that no one should have trouble with cops because of where they live.
She said: "It's a target area" and turned her back and walked away again,
to smile at children for a 'photo op.

"It's a target area." - That's why 'jerk-off' cops [Like Barkley?] can jerk their guns out
"all the time" like they say in McDougald: people in DPD target areas are targets,
as indicated by the photo of Frank Clark with a bullet hole in the back of his head
in the print version of this article.

Yep, even rename of your business is e'er great solution to get better organisation. You may apply certain technical utility (for example, https://www.logaster.com/favicon/ ). Service will evidently aid everyone with all or at least huge part of graphic constituent.

Re: “Oak City Slums and ZenSoFly Are Twin Engines Ramping Up Raleigh’s Bass Music

I've had nothing but positive experiences working with Slums, his music always seemed to me more club ready where raund haus tends to be more experimental, but one is a solo artist and one is a showcase, so that's more the reason for the confusion.

Re: “Oak City Slums and ZenSoFly Are Twin Engines Ramping Up Raleigh’s Bass Music

That entire conversation only circulated among the beat community and a few others who chimed in. Then, it was deleted. The point of bringing it back to life is to inform the larger community about what happened among a very prominent community of musicians. Also, the fact you're expressing some level of sensitivity toward my making a judgment about Slums' being "ahead" of whomever, may indicate that there is still some lingering "attitude" about the whole issue.

Re: “Despite Urban Sprawl and Industry, a Durham Family Collard Farm Lives On

I love collards. My friends and family tell me I cook the best they've ever eaten. I got that from my grandmother. One thing I've added to the preparation sorta goes with the best collards have been hit by frost. I don't wait for the frost; instead, I clean them really good, cut them into big chunks, bag them in one of those 2.5 gallon freezer bags, squish all the air out of the bag, and freeze them overnight. They have to be defrosted the next day, or they'll turn to mush. Why freeze them? It's science. Collards have a thick, sturdy cell wall, and the freezing tenderizes them. The cooking takes less time, and that means your house doesn't get so smelly. Long-cooked collards stink. If you can find it, either a good ham hock or hog jowl cooked with the greens is great. Now, I can cook traditional Southern foods; however, never greasy in my house. That's an urban legend about greasy traditional southern food. Southerners cooked with pork because most families raised a hog or two, and that pork in veggies was the main meat protein source. 'Nuff said! Good eating folks.

Re: “Oak City Slums and ZenSoFly Are Twin Engines Ramping Up Raleigh’s Bass Music

Slums' comments on sexism in the industry are something of a dead horse at this point, not sure what the point of bringing it back to life is... also raund haus is a crew of musicians with different performers for every show, usually they don't sound anything like Slums so saying he's "ahead" of them misses the point. but for sure a great performer with big things ahead

Re: “That Big Ku Klux Klan Rally Didn’t Amount to Much

LOL - confirming what we know: a) they're cowards, b) they can't organize their way out of a paper bag, and c) they shouldn't be allowed to carry guns or, apparently, knives. What a bunch of idiots.
Surprised they didn't call it off because they forgot to pick up their hoods from the dry cleaners.

Re: “It’s Time to Stop Laughing Off Poor White Men’s Malignancy—And Their Humanity

In this article I read that "[w]hite men are a huge problem." This is blatantly racist and sexist. It holds an entire group of people responsible for what only some of them have done. It tells me, a white man who supported Clinton and abhors Trump, that I am somehow responsible for the behavior of other people who share superficial characteristics with me. The essence of racism and sexism is to not see individuals.

Yes, yes. I know that for decades the idea has been put about that racism and sexism are not about any and all negative racial and gender generalizations. They have to be, according to these redefinitions, generalizations made by someone from a dominant group. But I have never accepted these redefinitions of the terms "racism" and "sexism" and no one has ever provided a good reason why I should. I think it is just a way to cut off discussion by ruling out some concerns by rigged definition.

If the shock of the Trump election is a wake-up call for liberal intellectuals, that has to go way beyond articles like this one. We liberals, as I have said for those many decades, must stop this delusion that it somehow combats prejudiced judgments about African Americans and women to make prejudiced judgments about white people and men. Racism against whites and sexism against men simply increases the racism and sexism in the world. Please consider, along these lines, the following. Peace out.
