Three black gang members threw some white kid on the ground for "ratting them to the teacher", offers to help him up, and then kicks him while he's down. This guy is just standing up for himself. Regardless of what this kid did, he'd be slammed by you fellas. Backs down and let's them walk all over him? He's a pussy. Stands up? He's a neo-nazi freak. Is there nothing in between?
Comparing people who were effectively tied to the land, had no control over their own lives, and had no legal rights to petulant teenagers who lack the mental capacity to appeal to authority figures and/or the justice system to address their problems seems a bit far-fetched. The misguided (and blatantly illegal) actions of some do not excuse the (violent) hatred of an entire race. And…to make sure this post isn't entirely
, the fit with the Lacoste sweater just seems off. I don't know if it's the white on khaki or the cable-knit on top of the striped shirt, but it just doesn't look right. I'm not particularly a fan of those Converse shoes in the second fit either, but to each his own, I guess. jwied82
, your fit looked moderately okay until I got to the shoes; the colors of the shoes don't (to my eyes, anyway) complement the rest of the fit all that well.
