Maybe what Spracs is saying is that 99% of these interactions are racist but we can't with 100% certainty know that this one is?

You would think after a week of seeing a woman lose her job for attempting to use the cops as a weapon against a black man, and living in a city on fire because the cops murdered another black man, that this behavior would stop for just one day. NOPE. White people just can't let this crap go, not even for a solitary day.

If you're reading this hopefully you aren't the type that make black and brown people have to prove they belong somewhere, especially somewhere as trivial as a gym in a WeWork building. If you know someone like this, stop them, just leave people the eff alone.


Now this dude lost his job, for what? Because he couldn't imagine these dudes could have rightfully been at this gym. I couldn't imagine giving two shits about who is working out where.

The comments to the video have a lot of info, including messages from this clown.

Honestly he should have been fired after this.
Venture capitalist and his Lake Calhoun neighbors unimpressed by Native Americans
Quote
Tom Austin is not a historian, a sociologist, or a political scientist.

Readers of this morning's Star Tribune opinion section will recognize as much, probably well before they reach the tagline of Austin's guest column, which labels him as the "CEO and managing partner of the F2 Group, a venture capital and private equity firm in Minneapolis."

And yet, somehow, Austin feels qualified to try his hand at both historical analysis and public opinion research. The results are very bad.

Austin describes his undertaking as follows: He spent the summer trying to speak with "virtually every homeowner who lives directly along Lake Calhoun, plus a couple hundred neighbors who live within a few blocks."

Using Minn as our guide it would be hard to argue against that.

That guy was put in such a crummy situation.  Sounds like he just wanted to go out and watch some birds, and then he was thrust into this cultural flashpoint that he never asked for.

What a classy move. Shame on the Karen for trying to cheapen it.

I ain't mad at him, he can feel however he wants to feel but his opinion on whether or not she should be charged for this crime is as valid as mine or dax's.

True.  His willingness to cooperate though is up to him.

I love that proposal, I'm sure the conversation will turn into ones first amendment right to call the police whenever you want for whatever you want.

Good thing is the prosecutors won't need his cooperation.

He didn't have to say anything, did he? What was there to gain by doing that? Again, words have consequences, his is that he has to not search his name on twitter for a couple of days, boo hoo.

Because she had an opinion? Did she ask to speak to a manager, threaten to call the cops? Having an opinion someone doesn't like makes you a Karen?

Karen about some crap that don’t concern you
If there was a gif of nicname thwarting the attempted-flag-taker and then gesturing him to suck it, followed by motioning for all of Hilton Shelter to boo him louder, it'd be better than that auburn gif.

My word he's just a guy caught up in a viral video.  He was asked a question and answered it, he didn't go through some kind of cost/benefit analysis before giving that quote. 

And you think the twitter Karens can't stir up enough controversy to make a guy like Christian unemployable solely because he's now controversial?  It's not just his feelings at stake.
