Protesters shroud Jefferson statue, decry UVA response to rallies

One month after white nationalists stormed the Rotunda at the University of Virginia, bearing tiki torches and chanting, “You will not replace us,” a smaller but equally vocal crowd of protesters took to the Rotunda on Tuesday night, covering a statue of Thomas Jefferson in a black shroud, which was removed sometime after midnight Wednesday.

    I’ve had it. Enough of this disparaging of white supremacy bullshit. Can anybody name one significant contribution blacks have made to any society worldwide other than providing labor? What about Muslims, every idea they ever had they stole from some other civilization. Look at any invention that improved society since Christ was around they have been done by Europeans with a few exceptions out of Asia. The indigenous peoples of North America didn’t even have the wheel when European explorers arrived. Enough of the bullshit, if you want to end “white supremacy” get out there and invent something to better society rather than just sliding along on the fruits of others sweat and crying because you think you’re inferior to whites. That’s right BLM, CAIR etc you’re the ones whining about “white supremacy” because deep down you feel inferior yourself because you realize that frankly you ain’t done shit to improve the world. Now grow up and improve yourself rather than trying to drag everybody down to your level.
