Sorry, YOU made the claim you KNOW what EVERY black AND white person THINKS, NOT ME.

"to never come into contact with a Black or White person who is not repulsed by that picture."

What do you think was the intent of taking that picture? Posing, grinning, with guns, in front of a memorial of a boy who was brutally murdered by racists? Do you think they didn't realize where they were standing and took a picture there totally at random?

They were celebrating their heritage.

One reason why it makes sense to stop coddling the Confederacy.

Why do Progressives insist on using ABSURD extreme scenarios and arguments? It just makes you look really foolish, and without reason.
"Why do Progressives insist on using ABSURD extreme scenarios and arguments?", because thay is ALL they have.

WITHOUT the extreme rhetoric, nobody would pay them any attention.

There is a law. There is a limitation on free speech. It was a 9-0 1945 decision by the Supreme Court called the Doctrine of Fighting Words. So imagine that, we don't have a constitutional right to hurt one another's feelings with our free speech.

Tell us about this aggressive in-store behavior. His unwanted attention towards a white woman? You do know she admitted she made the whole thing up, right?

"What do you think was the intent of taking that picture?" Could be satire. Considering NO ONE has posted what the picture takers were thinking, the is NO way to know.

To ASSUME why, only shows a racist bias.

I like to point hypocrisy. Did you, or any other poster complaining about this complain when W. Bush was shown with a noose around HIS neck when a race indecent happened? Or how about when whites were accused of "racism" when a rope noose was hung from a tree, only to find out some BLACKS DID IT?

Or other "racist" incidents happened and whites were automatically assumed did it only yo find it was BLACKS.

Or when W, Bush was pictured driving a pick up truck dragging a black man after the REAL incident happened when W Bush did NOT stop the guilty parties from be executed and sign the order for the execution.

I could post all day about such things.

Personally I am tired of being called "racist" every time some blacks "feeling are hurt"! Or called a "racist" whenever someone dares to disagree with them.

Yeah, posing grinning, cradling guns, in front of a memorial of a somber and horrific racist moment in history, is satire. I suppose you would say the same thing if people posed like that in front of Auschwitz. Hey, lighten up, everyone, it's SATIRE.

The rest of your post is off-topic deflection that has absolutely nothing to do with the action of these three racists.
