Re: “You Are So Nashville If ...

Third Place really hit it right. I think the winning entry was a bit too much media playing 'insider baseball'.

You are so Nashville if
you still think you have a chance to enter and win the YASNIF top spot, even though literally gillions enter each year and yet there have been people who have won twice in the last 26 years.

You are so Nashville if ... You look down on columbians in South Carolina because your picture of the confederate flag on top of the "General Lee" rusted away years ago.

I will admit that when it comes to race relations the truth is offensive.

Aren't you bicycle boy, twh? Been on a trip? Hope you had the padded-ass tighties. You seem wound pretty tight, as a general matter.

yoyo has a point.

To Mr. Pink, it is axiomatic that blacks explain to their children, in volatile terms, current events and the chip on the shoulder is not unexpected and not avoidable. Apparently, whites must bite their tongues when they watch the news and see the parade of n'er do-wells up on the screen.

Don't bother with the trolls. They get off on posting offensive opinions anonymously that they wouldn't post under their own names. It's not like they're going to have a measured conversation about Tasneem's piece if they're only here to provoke outrage.

"Yes. They owe it not to grow up to walk into a black church and kill people praying. That was the only task required of the unborn Dylann Roof, and how miserably he failed."

Put that on his parents; they failed miserably.

So, who do you blame when black assaults on whites are eight times white assaults on black?
If I had my way, parents - both black and white - would pay a price when their children messed up, especially acts of violence.

Re: “What heritage means to a mother trying to raise beautiful, brilliant black children in the South

"This woman is teaching her kids to hate. She tries to explain the situation to her children in less volatile terms, but still they will grow older with a chip on their shoulders against white people thanks to her."

So how do you suggest she explain to her kids, in less volatile terms, that a white man walked into a church and murdered black worshipers because they were black, in hopes of inciting a race war? That's just the fact of what happened. If they grow up with a chip on their shoulders, might the fault lie not with their mother but with the shooter?

"Do you really think the white unborn owe something to the black unborn?"

Yes. They owe it not to grow up to walk into a black church and kill people praying. That was the only task required of the unborn Dylann Roof, and how miserably he failed.

Re: “What heritage means to a mother trying to raise beautiful, brilliant black children in the South

"I wanted to shriek: "I am so sick of this white supremacist bulls&%t!! And folk are calling him 'mentally ill' and not a 'terrorist!' DAAAAMN! Where can we find safety, respect and peace?!!"'

This woman is teaching her kids to hate. She tries to explain the situation to her children in less volatile terms, but still they will grow older with a chip on their shoulders against white people thanks to her. So, what did your children and grandchildren do to earn such condemnation? That's who her children will be angry with. Farther into the future: Do you really think the white unborn owe something to the black unborn?

"I chose not to speak on the allegations of 12-year-old Tamir waving a fake gun."

And she refuses to face reality when it involves black complicity in their own misfortunes. Nothing unusual there.

Re: “What heritage means to a mother trying to raise beautiful, brilliant black children in the South

Balck people are as much southerners as are white people. So when you talk about "southern heritage," in defense of the indefensible, please correct yourself and call it WHITE southern heritage.
BTW, this woman wrote a well-thought out piece that explained what it's like to raise black children and how to deal with some difficult issues and as usual, the jackasses show up and bray just like jackasses.
