If you're in favor of this, you should kill yourself..  If you're against this, you should kill yourself.  If you're following this story in any way or have formed any opinions on this whatsoever, you should kill yourself.  Let's cull the herd.

Pretty much agree, that's why I didn't comment on the story.

If this is condoned, where will it end? The removal of George Washington from the dollar bill, Mount Rushmore, etc.?

Basically, anything or anyone American earlier than 1863 would be disrespected, because it/they belonged to a time period that allowed slavery.

Nah, this is ridiculous. Too far.

Happy Birthday to the U.S. ...

...Express member Barry Windham. Pro Wrestling legend from Sweetwater, TX. Tag Team partner and brother in law of Mike Rotundo(a). Son of Big Blackjack Mulligan, brother of Kendall, uncle to Windham Rotundo(a) and that Bo guy, and Ric Flair's greatest opponent not named Ricky Steamboat.

If the U.S. Express were around today, I'm sure the almighty Colin Kaepernick would somehow get the team black listed.

I know my boy Colin is signed with Nike. However, how does a guy who only has an endorsement deal and nothing more, dictate policy to one of the Illuminati's most powerful company?

I was told by conservatives that George Soros is using Kaepernick to advance the Zionist Agenda, and that means ensuring that the American Flag morphs into the Jewish States of America Under Sharia Law.

This is almost as controversial as Disney hiring a black girl to play Ariel in the live action Little Mermaid movie.

Laughable.  Both sides are completely fucking nuts.
