DeAndre Harris, the black guy who got beat up in Charlottesville

August 30, 2017 07:12AM
DeAndre Harris has been the symbol for the victims of the Charlottesville rally. Pictures of the attack on him have appeared in all the major papers, and at least twice in the NYT. He is portrayed as the innocent victim of white hate. He even pulled in $166k on his GoFundMe to help cover medical bills.

I saw this video on 4chan that shows, as far as I know, a previously unreported angle: [uploadfiles.io]

It clearly shows the beginning of the incident from a new angle. It shows an unidentified black man grabbing a confederate flag, and then DeAndre attacks the man with the flag.

I'd post it on YouTube, but I must actively and continually condemn racists in lock-step with the left so I'm not smeared as a racist myself.

For the record, as a deeply religious person, I am in agreement with Colossians 3:8-11 in what it says about things like hatred and slander, and a colorblind approach to race. I'm just waiting the day when posting these values gets me labeled as The Other:

"But now you also, put them all aside: anger, wrath, malice, slander, abusive speech from your mouth. Do not lie to one another, since you laid aside the old self with its practices, and have put on the new self who is being renewed to a true knowledge according to the image of the One who created him— in which there is no Greek and Jew, circumcised and uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave and freeman, but Christ is all, and in all."

- Paul

If you're willing to be labeled as a christian, why would you fear being labeled as a racist?

Stevers August 30, 2017 04:15PM

Equating slavery in the Bible to racism today?

PaulO August 31, 2017 09:12AM

If you can't make sense of a simple minded creature like me, what are you doing trying to make sense of life with a big ol complicated book?

Stevers August 31, 2017 11:11AM

That's not racism

Kstatida August 31, 2017 12:17AM

I was implying that racism isn't worse than christianity, so it's funny that he is so open to being labeled as one but not the other. In fact, Christianity is probably the ultimate form of discrimination

Stevers August 31, 2017 06:21AM

That's exactly how I talk and act. You nailed it. /sarcasm (n/t)

PaulO August 31, 2017 09:22AM

The only thing getting nailed here

Stevers August 31, 2017 10:54AM

Oh silly you

Kstatida August 31, 2017 11:50AM

My mistake. Let's continue this conversation on the Faith board. n/t

Stevers August 31, 2017 12:01PM

That's nearly all religions, you twit. To assume all christians take it that litteral is ignorant. don't be ignorant.

Frosty August 31, 2017 06:44AM

Since when did christians stop talking heaven and hell literally?

Stevers August 31, 2017 08:09AM

I'm not going to waste my time counting them for you. I'd rather waste my time linking awesome hilarious videos that you hipsters won't click on because it's not in old english font.

Frosty August 31, 2017 08:58AM

Nice response. You really backed up your unfounded claims by attacking an unrelated comment and dismissing responsibility by pretending like you don't care that I don't watch your videos. n/t

Stevers August 31, 2017 11:36AM

Dante is not the Bible.

PaulO August 31, 2017 08:58AM

Dante isn't, but Matthew, Malachi, Jude, and Mark have something to say about this.

Stevers August 31, 2017 11:33AM

Thank you.

PaulO August 31, 2017 12:29PM

And herein lies one of my biggest issues with the bible and its interpretations.

Stevers August 31, 2017 12:54PM

Even if God is not the fire, and there is to be a literal fire, it still will burn up and destroy, according to the Bible (n/t)

PaulO September 06, 2017 03:33AM

Damn Paul. You're a bad ass. (n/t)

Matrik August 31, 2017 12:35PM

Ass in the bible means donkey. Your beast of burden.

Flipside Oreo September 03, 2017 10:00AM

Paul is not a bad ass.

Stevers August 31, 2017 12:40PM

Someone sounds jelly. (n/t)

Matrik August 31, 2017 12:42PM

Thing is, christianity doesn't mind it

PaulO August 30, 2017 11:10AM

jalim August 30, 2017 08:11AM
