Honestly folks, not everything calls for a chase. And when you go chasing what you think is the Big R and it's not him, you are just wasting your energy on a wild goose when your focus could be elsewhere. Like here, for instance.
But this situation in Ohio did not call for racism or "color arousal" antennas to be raised.
"Internet humor crossed over into the realm of the real world, and immediately started causing trouble this weekend, after a group of high schoolers held up a giant sign reading “You mad bro?” during a football game in Painesville, Ohio, on Friday night.
For the uninitiated, the phrase “you mad bro?” is a meme used primarily to incite anger in someone who’s already red in the face. It’s a classic troll tactic that’s been around for ages, at least online.
According to Fox 8 News, a group of students “and parents” from Kirtland High School held up a large sign decorated, with the words “You mad bro?,” which was directed at the opposing team, Painesville Harvey, who, of course, had just lost the game. Because the sign said “bro,” and because the majority of the Painesville Harvey players are black, some believed the sign was a racist statement.
“At the conclusion of the game, some of their students and parents put up a sign that we believe was racial intimidation, ethnic intimidation,” said Roderick Coffee, president of the local NAACP chapter, who also attended the game.
The Kirkland High School principal even said that the school plans to conduct a thorough investigation into whether the sign had “mal-intent” toward the Painesville Harvey players." [Source]
Investigate? For what? Of course the sign had "mal-intent". The folks who held it up wanted their opponents to know that a beat down was just administered on the football field. That's it! Period! End of story! Move along folks, there is nothing to see here. The Big R is somewhere else in A-merry-ca doing his thing.
Finally, I wonder why these phychos who take it up on themselves to kill innocent people in large numbers never go to a fancy restaurant and start shooting? (Not that I think that that would be any less barbaric or anything.) It's always the fast food and cheaper eateries that catch it. The McDonald's in San Ysidro, 22 killed. The Luby's killings in Texas, 23 shot and killed. The Brown's Chicken Restaurant murders, seven people killed. And now this latest nut.
Today folks were just trying to get their IHOP on when some lunatic decided to go all Rambo and kill at least three innocent people before taking his own miserable life.
"You go a whole tour in Afghanistan and no one is shot. And you go to (a restaurant) and several are shot," said 31-year-old Sgt. First Class Cameron Anderson of Reno, a Nevada Army National Guard member. "It's a shock. I came to work today and had no idea I'd be driving the chaplain here (to the hospital)."
Sorry soldier, this is the new A-merry-ca. Where any minute one of those living among us can decide to play executioner and simply reach for one of those readily available guns in our midst and start taking target practice.
You can't even sit down to a nice meal these days without constantly having to look over your shoulder. "Waiter, I will take the check now please. "But sir, you hardly touched your food." "Ahhm, give it to the guy who just walked in with the black trench coat and the buzz cut."
