Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

Young pretty white girls are one of the only 2 remaining privileged classes. The other is obviously old rich white men.

Just make sure you take down any pictures of yourself on social media hanging with the homies or smoking weed just in case you get run over by one of them.

Re: We are a nation of cowards for not discussing race issues....

An ex-girlfriend of mine who happened to be white/pretty/wealthy/young (also kinda racist), had to get 3 DUIs within a year in order for her license to be suspended. No jail time! Not sure how she managed that, because I think at least a month of jail is mandatory after your 2nd, but like I said, she is white, pretty, wealthy, young - pretty sure if it was some random dude who was a minority, he would've been thrown in jail on his first offense.

Wow, that thread was gold. I was about to ask if she was the Emily Haines looking one, but you said older Blake Lively, so guess not.

Yeah, no, but they all kinda look/seem the same in the rearview. The racist with the DUIs was nutso but exciting, the Haines-looking girl was sane, if a bit boring.
I guess I have a "type" when it comes to looks, but personality-wise, they've been all over the map.

Was this in California? The only person I personally know who got a dui is a white girl who lost her license on the first offense.

So there was one in Los Angeles. Wonder what the story is on that. And what the hell went on in the very north east corner of California?

Probably the guy who played Uncle Fester on "The Addams Family."

In the 1930s he was part of a lynch mob that killed a man accused of kidnapping and murdering a female friend of his. It was reported that he actually held the rope.

100% true. Look it up.

That was my first thought too, but that was in 1933 (the map only goes through 1931) and was up in San Jose.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooke_Hart

Jackie Coogan -- the actor who played Uncle Fester -- was a huge child star. He played The Kid in the Charlie Chaplin movie. He made millions (and that's millions in 1920s money). But his mother and stepfather spent it all before he turned 21, which led to California passing a law requiring a portion of child actor's earnings to be put in trust for them.

He went on to marry Betty Grable, which means the number one pin-up girl of World War II was married to Uncle Fester.

Life can be ironic.

A white officer claims he was racially taunted for his African heritage
DNA test revealed he was 18% African
