@3, what the fuck does that mean?

@11, my comment was in reply to a previous one stating that there was more diversity in the Amazon video. Dumbass!

For all the people who are pointing out the lack of racial diversity at Sub Pop. Has it ever occurred to you that the applicants for jobs there might not be very diverse?
As someone whose been going to rock shows for 30 years, including many shows by SP bands during our cities rock glory days, I can say the audience isn't usually very diverse. Lets face it, underground rock, for whatever reason, doesn't appeal to many blacks and Asians.
Diversity is good. Diversity for diversities sake is tokenism. Just because an event is overwhelmingly white does not mean others are excluded.

@2 (again), so, if someone who already owns a smart phone winds up homeless, should they throw away the smart phone in order to fit your vision of how a homeless person should be? If someone gives it to them as a gift should they decline?
What else do you think the homeless owe you?

@2, 15 years ago people said the same thing about cell phones. You know what? Cell phones became a vital tool in our society, especially those on the losing end of our society. The same is happening with smart phones. They are almost a necessity for anyone working to get their lives in order.

Ken, I think people like you are what's wrong with our society.

@5, the constitution was designed in part to protect all from humans prettiest vindictiveness.
I, for one, am strongly opposed to barbaric redneck justice.

@58, you know why everyone thinks that Amazon employees aren't from here? Because data has shown that there are lots of people moving here from out of state. Yeah, we know there's locals at Amazon, and that the big A is not the only employer drawing people here.
Amazon is a shitty company. That alone makes them deserving of the blame.

@54, like I said in my post @49, we're also talking about people who are working their way up to jobs that you deem worthy of being your neighbor. Do you really think the cost of living goes down because you're in school. We have a public university and several community colleges here.
As @53 noted, getting into town where the better schools are is impractical for many who live outside the city.
Finally, I moved here from the suburbs 22 years ago to be among people like the bucket drummer you like to knock.

@50, there's motivated workers, & then there are doormats willing to put up with an employer thinking their employees owe them their entire lives. I'm all for motivated people.

Which begs questions of why more of the people working for the big A aren't locals. My hunch is that anyone who's lived here for more than 10 years knows that Amazon is a shitty company to work for.

Let's not forget that these jobs you are demeaning are often the ones that people work while they are getting degrees to get better jobs. Those schools are here, transit into the city is mostly stuck in traffic.
