‘It’s My Fucking Country’: Chad the Cookout Killer Goes on Racist Rant Over Spanish Music

'It's My Fucking Country': Chad the Cookout Killer Goes on Racist Rant When Neighbors Play Spanish Music on the 4th
Hey Worker Bees, I have seen that you delete documentation of the instance where white folks go ballistic and/or call the cops on peeps of color for being peeps of color. I don't know if it's because you guys assess the links to be of corporate media or whether or not you think that it is race baiting to repost this shit. This is from The Root.

"The Root is an English-language American online magazine launched on January 28, 2008, by Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Donald E. Graham, and was owned by Graham Holdings Company through its online subsidiary, The Slate Group English-language American online magazine launched on January 28, 2008, by Henry Louis Gates Jr. and Donald E.

Yes, Black thought. Not much of Black thought on this site, since like forever. So. Anyway. It is IMPORTANT to me, to US, having lived decades in dark brown skin, to show an all white audience what it is like to wake up every day to this bullshit and fuckery. I love the Root. The journalists are funny as hell. Cuz, you know, it is better to laugh than kill a racist white person. Usually.

So, c'mon, let me right here and now add #chadthecookoutkiller to our hash tags # #bbqbecky #permitpatty #idadam #movinginwhileblack #blackwhileairbnb-ing #diningwhileblack #cuponingwhileblack and just the all encompassing #livingwhileblack

'It's My Fucking Country': Chad the Cookout Killer Goes on Racist Rant When Neighbors Play Spanish Music on the 4th

Fueled by a hate for immigrants who refuse to listen to good, American, white-people music like the Beatles or the Rolling Stones, a California man knocked on his neighbors' door and flew into a fit of rage when they dared to play Spanish music during an Independence Day cookout.

Ivette Celedon, a third-generation American of Mexican descent, filmed the heated exchange as her family barbecued in their backyard waiting for the city-sponsored fireworks show, according to San Francisco's local CBS affiliate.

"So in a family backyard bbq we're not allowed to have Spanish music because it's disrespectful to the country?????" Celedon wrote in a Facebook post. "Land of the free, right? Celebrating independence!!! We are celebrating Independence Day just like everyone else! #neverhadaproblemuntil2018."

Although she gave no reason for sharing the video on Facebook, I assume she was hoping that Animal Planet would purchase her footage of the rare species, Racist Americanus, in its natural habitat—Petaluma, Calif.

"Do it man! It's my country on Fourth of July," Crosby, Stills or Nash says as the video begins. "You come in my country and do that on Fourth of July?"

Clad in the latest from Wypipowear's spring line of sleeveless T-shirts, the man, identified as Larry Lappin, continued: "This is Fourth of July. You wanna do that? Throw it in my face? Just wait, motherfucker!"

"Do that. Disrespect my fucking country," screamed Bob the Barbecue Killer, who is actually a distant relative of celebrity cookout hater, BBQ Becky. He screams at Celedon to "shut up" as he disrespects his country by sporting an American flag on his head, in violation of the U.S. Flag Code, which states: "The flag should never be used as wearing apparel, bedding, or drapery."

Lappin later apologized for his rant in the whitest, most racist way imaginable, but blaming it on his love for America. "I made a huge mistake," he said, whitely, to the news station. "I had been drinking too much and a little thing set me off and it really bugged me."

Then, he added, caucastically:

"Sometimes I wish they would assimilate more. I hear them playing [Spanish language] music in the backyard all the time and it doesn't bother me. Because of the day and what July 4th means to me, I felt disrespected ...

I'm a very patriotic man. Unfortunately, that wasn't representative of a patriot. Just after a long day [the music] hit me the wrong way."
When asked for comment, Thomas Jefferson, the Founding Father most associated with the holiday, who actually wrote the Declaration of Independence and died on the 4th of July, responded to Lappin's apology by saying, "Fuck that guy."

Fuck that guy, indeed, former slave rapist ...

Fuck that guy, indeed.


So, seriously, there is never any Black or Brown voice here. Do you reject all reposts from these Black publications??

White Apartment Manager Fired After Calling Police On Black Couple Because of Socks

Apparently black people couldn't catch a break during the 4th of July holiday when attempting to use the pool at various apartment complexes across the U.S. First there was Adam Bloom in Winston-Salem, N.C., who called the police on a black woman who he thought didn't belong at a pool. But just a few states over, around the same time, another unseasoned person was trying to flex their pool privileges.

Kam Porter, a resident of the Riverset Apartments in Memphis, Tenn., thought she would spend a relaxing fourth at her pool, but that was interrupted when community manager Erica Walker didn't appreciate the fact that Porter's boyfriend was wearing socks. Gasp! How dare he wear socks!

In a video posted to Facebook, Porter confronts Walker over the rules that only seem to apply to black people at the pool, because there were several other people (all white) who were wearing various articles of clothing that were not "proper pool attire".

"I think she's calling the police because he has on socks," Porter said.

"She's walking off making a phone call to whoever she needs to call. I haven't said anything crazy to her, but I did tell her I was not going to leave," she continued.

"So, she basically said no hats, no shirts, no socks," Porter said. "We have two men, who are her friends, sitting right here in hats. Two hats. We have a man over here sitting in a hat."

When the officer (who was black) showed up, it seemed as though Walker didn't have much to say.

Porter complained to the complex's management company, and after an investigation, Trilogy Realestate Group said Walker acted inappropriately, according to WREG13.

"After assessing statements from Ms. Porter and determining that this former employee's actions violate our company's policies & beliefs, she is no longer employed by Riverset Apartments."

Had Walker just sat her ass down and sun bathed, and worried about herself, she'd still have a job. In other news, oh well.
