People are weird. WD gets 5 downvotes per post simply for existing. Don't take it personal.

It's MSU. They're always competitive and the atmosphere is always intense, something you can't even say for OSU.

Defense needs to pick it up. Dawkins is killing us on that end, not keeping his man in front has led to a lot of those fouls and they are making us pay at the line

Really don't get why pretending State doesn't matter makes people feel better about themselves. Hate that.

Lol this is...strange. But then again, it's a message board on the internet so whatever.

The difference here is that I can acknowledge someone's accomplishments without dismissing their faults and how it affects others. Your opinion on my opinion is neither here nor there because you do not know me.
You don't have to be a moral marbleman to call bullshit when you see it. You want to dismiss racism and slavery like it's the same as stealing from the corner store. It isn't and I don't have to ignore it because they contributed to the current state of being. Which was the point of the Bill Cosby comparison, people like to argue the media ruined his image and he was a positive black figure. I CALL BULLSHIT! Bill Cosby ruined Bill Cosby's image. Did he contribute to the black community? Sure. Cosby show was very influential far beyond the humor. Does he get a pass for being a shitty person? Hell no. Not from me. You just chose to focus on the comparison rather than the point.

My bad, I have this tendency to not put shitty people on a pedestal. They're all the same to me. I lack that intellectual maturity thing you mentioned.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||Well according to this logic||
Well according to this logic Bill Cosby isn't all that bad of a guy. I mean sure he drugged and raped a dozen women but hey, most of the great ones did. We musn't dishonor his jello pudding legacy by ridiculing his shitty past. This intellectual maturity thing isn't so bad after all.
|2 weeks 3 days ago||You're right. No one thought||
You're right. No one thought he was a racist back then. Moral evolution has brought us to this place where racism and slavery is a bad thing. How could we all have missed this fact of life?

amusing levels of it.

Yeah because hands being up, down or waved side to side is the main issue here

"Yes, he was a racist and a slaveowner, but"
the fact that there's a "but" after that statement is hilarious.

It wouldn't have mattered before anyway because you would've never heard about it. People aren't more sensitive, they're more informed.

"Social Media drives this country. If your not happy go to Twitter"
People always say that as if its a bad thing. I assure you that Twitter wasn't the first to hear about this. Problem is that when you bring up these issues before it goes viral, you get ignored. Your concerns get brushed under the rug. 15 years ago there may have been nothing you could do about it if the news won't pick it up, which they won't, which is part of a much bigger picture. Now you don't need the news, you can make your own news. People in charge care about public relations more than whatever it is you're concerned about so eventually the thing to do is alert the masses about things they wouldnt have known about in the past and allow them to speak freely. Now at the very least, you can force their hand. If social media is the tool you have at your disposal to do that, I dont see what the issue is.
