Straight talk about black riots not allowed

Seattle Mariners catcher Steve Clevenger has been suspended for the rest of the season for sending racially insensitive tweets about the protests of police killings in Charlotte on Wednesday.

The Mariners announced the decision on Friday, following Clevenger’s tweets on Thursday night.

The posts refer to police-shooting victim Keith Lamont Scott as a "thug," mock athletes protesting during the national anthem and also lash out at the Black Lives Matter movement and President Barack Obama. The posts also suggest those involved in the Charlotte protest “should be locked behind bars like animals.”

If you reveal the Emperor's new clothes then you will be pilloried. Must not tell the truth. Even the media who adored you will not only not defend you they will denounce you.

Not so sure about that AIB/44. The PC'ers are after almost anyone's blood these days simply to justify their own mental illnesses. Wonder what they'd say about a black fella wearing blackface, let alone whiteface. That would be an interesting social experiment.

Incidentally, "blackface", according to Chrome is spelled correctly, but it has no idea what "whiteface" is.
