Fuck Rscall Flats, I worked at an outdoor venue and one of my last jobs was to work security at a Rascall Flatts concert. The rednecks got retard strong and pissed off like faggots, and I ended up beating the shit out of some redneck faggot in the parking lot because he got out of his car, nad started beating on another redneck in another car. I ended up tearing my deltoid in my left arm. And the company that hired me wouldnt cover it because I was technically off duty at the time, I broke up the fight in the parking lot leaving after work. So they wouldn't cover it. I worked one more show after that, Crue Fest, during which no fights too place. And I still caught crowd surfers at the pit barricade even with a torn deltoid, cause I am a fucking badass... but seriously country rednecks are the worst... horrible poeple...
I'm really not sure what makes you think those slurs are appropriate and appreciated on this board.
this has been bothering me lately.
when my roomate moved in, he came from the army, and used the word faggot a lot and still does to a point. in the army there is a culture of homophobia and hate there, but also a partial emptiness to the words as they are sometimes used endearingly when referring to each other. but they also use N and F words at people they don't like too.
so there's the army saying these things.
and the uneducated in general, and their ignorance is understandable.
but then there is 4chan as leaders of the internet youth, which is or will be basically tantamount to all youth.
why do they speak in constant slurs? coming off like straight hillbillies often enough.
they always seem to defend it as just words without hate, but why bother? is it simple trolling?
knowing that saying 10lb cusses can get a reaction is enough for them to actually adopt certain words as their baseline vocabulary?
i feel like it's just one more bit of evidence that society is devolving at an exponential rate.
seems like racism is on the upturn, too.
or at least racial tension. how can that be? why is there re-segregation?
i don't mean to tack that on without an anecdote. i can say that in my city there is very frightening race-related violence. it makes me want to shut down and give up. it also makes me want to publicly destroy all the KKK and hate groups. but i wonder if that would really do anything.
where does the hate come from if not from the impoverished. they do it because they are uneducated, but why do the rich do it too, and everyone in between? why does entertainment seem to tell me that cultural barriers are impossible to break down? that white, black, gay and straight can't fully coexist?
i guess by virtue of me needing to even word the question that way, i answer it too.
sorry brandon, didnt mean to pick on you
here is the official statement of brandon on it just to make it official:
