Rasheed, Muhammad. "Any Ole Excuse Will Do." Cartoon. The Official Website of Cartoonist M. Rasheed 31 Oct 2020. Pen & ink w/Adobe Photoshop color.
I came across this racist incident earlier where a Black man was kicked out of a sushi restaurant because the staff said he wasn't allowed to wear gym shoes, but there were already white people in the facilities who were wearing them. The older white woman who filmed the incident on her cell phone was wearing them, but they only kicked out the Black man.
Obviously, the restaurant's staff didn't have a problem with the shoes. Any ole excuse will do, however ridiculously flimsy, when all you want to do is get rid of Black people. It's especially interesting when the offending hypocritical racists have spent the last couple of weeks pretending they weren't racist as hell. Speaking of which, the sushi restaurant incident reminded me of when I was recently banned from a certain message boards and a similar lie was being used as just any ole excuse. See if you can spot the hypocrisy in the dialog below.
Long Tom - So what do you say about Milton Friedman, the late economist who also disliked the Federal Reserve?
Muhammad Rasheed - Friedman would have preferred for us to go back to the precious metal standard and gotten rid of the private banks altogether, with the US gov solely in charge of the monetary supply. In this we agreed. But his opinions and advice from within the Federal Reserve's fiat credit system, although interesting (he wanted us to take away interest rate control from the human fact and give it to a more objective computer algorithm, for example), don't mean over much and came across as hopelessly naive, since the demon princes of that side of the criminal overclass maintain their control for precisely self-serving reasons and it didn't matter what Friedman theorized and advised about their inner machinations anyway.
izzus - What I'm understanding is that he had some good theories, but they couldn't be implemented in practice. Is that correct?
Muhammad Rasheed - Basically, Friedman's default position on finance policy was the one healthiest for the country and the general populace, but the one we implemented was the one chosen by the self-serving 1% criminal overclass. Friedman tried to help them manage that system so that it would serve the general populace, too, but naturally his ideas were snubbed by that diabolical cabal.
webkilla - and he says that anyone who doesn't agree with him is clearly a white supremacist
izzus - That was a reply to Rasheed lmao.
webkilla - still fit on rashit
izzus - @Muhammad... Interesting. Guess I have some reading to do, then.
Muhammad Rasheed - Uh oh. What has webkilla been telling you? Do you need me to go to Denmark and kick him to death for his lies?
izzus - I just haven't heard much about the guy before. The name is familiar, but I only came across it in passing while reading about Thomas Sowell.
webkilla - Most places would ban someone for casually issuing death threats - I'll just add it to the review. FFS, rashit doesn't know when to shut up...
kyrtuck - Yeah, that was very bad form on Mrasheed's part. I admire you Webkilla for taking it in stride.
webkilla - nah dude I'm just laughing at this. Dude has no self-awareness.
Muhammad Rasheed - I'm not going to Denmark. Relax. You'd probably give me COVID-19 anyway. It wouldn't even be worth it. Plus I have zero interest in visiting Europe for any reason.By the way, if my communication style is so foreign and alien that you can't tell when I'm joking or not, why would I care about your advice, suggestions, or criticisms that are not only equally foreign and weird to me, but are also completely uninformed on the material? I only ask because you oddly keep insisting that I should take your opinions, advice and suggestions seriously.
You know, THE /b/
I don't expect you to change though. That's part of your people's modus operandi.
Where did I "admit" this? Post the link, please.

Again, your interpretation of how you think I "acted like" doesn't mean much when you lack the ability to even tell when I'm joking or not on the most basic communication level. Your faux-insights lack the necessary structure of reason to make them real.
In this very thread, the well-documented civil rights struggles of my long-abused and exploited ethnic group were routinely dismissed as delusions, but you pretend to be outraged should I give you the impression of lacking empathy for your cause. lol

So you can perhaps learn how to stop being evil and selfish and build up your character from -0.
I dont much like killey death humor. Dont like it when Crazy J does it, I dont like it when you do it.
So even though it was clearly a cartoonish non-threat pretending to be one that you admit you know for a fact wasn't a legitimate threat in any way, you still (using your gruff serious voice) think I was "over the line." That's very interesting. Especially when I compare it to all of webkilla's over-the-top "suck a 1,000 dicks!" type comments over the course of the thread. You don't consider that stuff over the line in anyway and you're fine, just this clearly fake "I'm flying to Denmark to kick you to death because I'm fake speculating that you had something to do with my fake friend over a issue I'm pretending to care about!!" throwaway comment has your panties in a bunch.
The well-documented, real life civil rights struggles of my long-abused and exploited ethnic group were routinely dismissed as delusions using over-the-top profanity and rape language is NOT a bit over the line, but a cartoonish fake threat on the same level of seriousness as "suck a 1,000 dicks!" is a bit over the line to you.
This legitimately seems like you all decided to join together oncode to pretend to be fake serious like you're in a high school play, clumsily acting like a juvenile hazing attempt. That's the actual impression you're giving me right now.
Even if I was serious in that post, there's a whole spectrum of emotions in between "not liking someone" and "hating" them. lol Do you think I hate my daughter because she doesn't agree with me that grape jelly is delicious?
Please note that you are the group complaining earlier because I didn't take your advice, suggestions and criticisms seriously at all. Please add this new ballyhoo to the file that supports my case.

So? Why should I care? I mean, outside of wondering why you haven't banned Crazy J over something you suddenly want to pretend is the evilest thing you have ever heard ever?
I'm in your ignore list 'Foe' bucket, buddy. Perhaps you need to revisit what that actually means? You seem confused.
By contrast, I have ZERO issue ignoring whatever is in Petercat2's Foe bucket notification posts because that silly he-wench is consistently hot garbage not worthy of my time.
Technically, you are no different, but I can't add you to my 'Foe' list because you are also the local champion and I'm committed to engaging with you in our battle of wits. Of course I won that battle the moment you formally put me in your ignore list, but this thread is a font of material for caricaturing the white supremacst mindset and I'm now dug in.
"UPDATE: Rasheed ultimately got banned from the forum after he made death threats against forum member Webkilla. Even if he were doing it in jest, that crossed the line."
