Social justice columnist “triggered” by photo that does NOT depict men in “blackface” — they're coal miners

Rashaad Thomas, an op-ed contributor for the Arizona Republic, recently walked into a Phoenix restaurant only to find himself “triggered” by an image that was so overtly racist, it was almost beyond belief.


Apparently this eatery had a photo of white folk sporting blackface, which is of course verboten, unless you happen to be a certain Democrat governor.

So what exactly did that offensive photo depict?

Well, it wasn’t Al Jolson or anyone else dating back to the not-so-good-ol’ days when blackface was acceptable, but rather, the offending image was a vintage photo of coalminers whose faces were covered in soot after a shift down at the mine.

Instead of apologizing for his mistake after being informed of this fact, Thomas doubled down on his outrage and the social justice columnist went on to write an article to vent about the photo that does NOT depict white men sporting black face.

The most jaw-dropping line in the column was surely this one:

“Fact: The photograph shows coal miners’ faces covered in soot. The context of the photograph is not the issue.”

Huh? The context of the photo is of course the ENTIRE issue!

Yet, this is where we are today when it comes to mind-numbing political correctness that we must kowtow to loons who are triggered by racism even when zero racism exists.

Andrew does not like it that her progressive peers are shallow and pathetic and mindless.

Andrew Stephenson tell your peers that. And tell that to people who have been hounded and verbally attacked and in some cases fired due to pressure from SJW idiots.

Who knows where it will end if we don’t fix it, Menzoid?

For the time being, you put boot to ass the next time Mohammud Rashead comes into your restaurant!
Just say no!

What kind of name is Rashaad ? Could explain a lot. This guy is obviously a bit dull, lacking in gray matter and anti White.

ANDREW STEPHENSON….political correctness is an interesting topic…but the simple fact is;

(1) IT AIN’T NEWS

and

(2) IT IS NONE OF THE GOVERNMENTS FUCKING BUSINESS

And when the PPC is elected THAT will be policy.

Reading the article,i he seems to be more interested in stirring the pot, than “triggered”.

Judging by the response, he succeeded.

How have the Cape Breton, Men of the Deeps, flown under the radar for so long? Or are they People-kind of the Deeps now? Sheesh.
