    Whoever made this has never watched the show. The sons of anarchy only dealt with these guys because they had the common enemy of the mexicans. They would not have cooperated otherwise. And the sons were screaming racists. As a matter of fact, the character Juice was so distraught that his black father might be discovered, that he attempted to commit suicide at one point.
    This show is based off of motorcycle gangs, who are notoriously racist and segregated. In my several years as a state trooper, I dealt with mongols, outlaws, and even several sin city disciples, one of the few black motorcycle gangs. So I can say with experience that gangs are racist and that this meme is a piss poor example of strong people. And the strong people portion really pissed me off regarding motorcycle gangs. These are not strong people. They are criminals and cowards who terrorize people through threats of violence. They are nothing but little shits who deserve to be tied to the back of a truck and dragged out of town.

    really feel
    about biker gangs.

    There was a guy at the tattoo parlor, I'd guess his age mid/late 20s, who was watching via the internet a documentary on the Hell's Angels. When he spoke of Sonny Barger you could hear the reverence, even worship, in his voice. WTF?

    But which America? The one that supports freedom and democracy, the one that attempts to be a beacon for the world? Or the one that is exclusionary? The one that is trying to become a Christian theocracy? A Christian caliphate? The one that shuns other religions and non white skin colors? The one that a minority of the population elected a leader that lies so much that he scourges a free press. I know which America I want to succeed. The one that understands that progress is moving forward, the moving backwards is regress. That America's best days are still ahead of us, not cloaked in the bigotry and close-mindedness of our past. That America's growth has been built on new ideas and new blood. That the idea of America is a framework where we can take the worst of the world and allow them to become the best. We have had occasional glimmers of that, but we can become better.

    I've gone back and forth on whether it is OK to indulge in Trump humor. I'm settling on occasionally as otherwise it is just too damn dire. The "Tiny Trump" meme is pretty clever.

    My wife's family is extremely sensitive to that sort of poking fun.

    Not because of any Trump support, but because her uncle is a 'little person'. They find it as unfunny as using any other disability to make fun of someone.....which he obviously isn't innocent of himself.

    TinyTrump clearly isn't making fun of dwarfism. There are people who will claim there's a connection....even when they know there isn't one.

    Hard for me to argue either way if it is or isn't offensive to that group, as I haven't lived 50+ years with the condition. But when someone who actually has says they are offended by it, I'll take their word for it.

    Nope. The truth can be hidden for years, decades, centuries, millenniums. Some times it is never revealed.

    Will the full truth about the inquisitions sanctioned by various popes ever be known?
    No.


    Will the full truth about JFK's assassination ever be known?
    It's possible, but highly unlikely.
