Famb I'm glad you enjoyed it, and I agree with everything you posted. McGhee deserves a Pultizer, National Book Award, a BET Hip-Hop Award for Best Rap Performance, everything.

I have gifted like 10 people copies of this book, I think it really is one of the best examinations of how insidious, destructive, and counterproductive white supremacy is to this country and white people too. Everyone should read it

I heard Michelle Obama and Spotify are producing a podcast on the book. Excited for that joint, hopefully, it can help the book reach more people.
EVERYONE should read this book. It paints such a clear picture and even for hyper capitalists, racists, poor whites, middle class whites — literally anyone, I think that it can be eye opening. Literally couldn’t put it down once I started reading it. I hope she gets compensated accordingly too because Robin DiAngelo is out here collecting checks for whitesplaining racism to other white folks.

Serious question, may someone explain?
"The thin red line flag was developed to show support and solidarity with fire service personnel and to honor injured or fallen firefighters."

That flag has been co-opted by the racist clowns too.


Didn't know there was so many "thin ____ line flags"

  • Firefighters: Thin Red Line
  • Emergency medical services: Thin White Line. The thin white line differs from other thin lines in that the background is blue instead of black, with a white line crossing horizontally through the middle. EMS still uses the “Thin Orange Line” which primarily used by Search and Rescue.
  • Police Officers: Thin Blue Line
  • Dispatch (previously overlooked, as they so often are): Thin Gold Line
  • Search and Rescue Personnel and EMS : Thin Orange Line
  • Corrections officers : Thin Silver Line
  • Security Officers, Retail Loss Prevention: Thin Yellow Line
  • Federal Agents, especially Border Patrol Agents, and Park Rangers: Thin Green Line
  • United States Navy: Thin NWU Line
  • United States Army: Thin ACU Line
  • Air Force: Thin Tiger Stripe Line
  • S.W.A.T. (Special Weapons And Tactics): Thin Blue Line with Lightning Bolt

unless it’s the olympics or some national team event of that nature

I assume a hell of a lot when I see someone wearing just a regular American flag.. or flying it

sooooo when I see one of them other variation best believe I’m assuming some shh

My uncle has been a firefighter as long as I've been alive and I've never seen him with that flag.

Used to have family events at the Firemen's hall (Black Firefighters Association) and I never once saw that flag.

Yeah I was riding my my bike earlier and I saw that flag flying next to another house w/ a BLM sign in the front lawn. I didn't really start seeing those around along w/ the ones with the blue stripe down the middle until the BLM protest last year.
