good riddance, but the market assoc. is going to let it start over again.
You have a good point that the wall is disgusting. I recently had my relatives over for a visit. When at PPM, I didn't take them to the gum wall. However, I part with your assertion that it is a 'wall of white privilege'. It is a silly and perhaps unhealthy (for the building at least) Seattle institution. But, I don't think it has anything to do with race.
@5 - I think you're too late. ;>)
@12 - Being shot to death is a privilege? You live in a strange world, sir.
May you be so honored this year.
I'm not sure that's true. Someone said that, but... that someone wasn't an engineer. It could be true, but I sorta doubt that gum could cause more than cosmetic damage to brickwork.
And if the bricks are covered in gum, cosmetic damage isn't an issue.
His view is "everyone/everything is racist, so pay us now!"
Funniest part is, non-whites get away with burning entire neighborhoods after a questionable verdict, and their kids can behave like wannabe rap gangsters because "it's culture" according to NPR listeners.
The Stranger is like reading a dumb high school paper. It's all "f**k you dad!", then "pay for all my mistakes, dad!". Laughable.
I heard he was beheaded by an angry group of public school gym coaches.
It's an example of people claiming to like a thing because they're supposed to, because everybody else likes it, and god forbid you should step out of line. Group think is king in Sea-town.
I figured he'd just signed up under some other stupid daddy-issue type of monicker and continue flaunting his ignorance.
Says the dog lover. Talk about an entitled local group of poop tossers.
Also I hate that I'm in agreement with some of the resident dicks on this one, need to scrub my phone with bleach.
That's the idiotic f***ing Mudede I've come to know and loathe... You've actually written some things recently that were coherent and made some kind of awkward sense. I actually kind of preferred it when I could see your name on the page/screen and know it would be an utter waste of my time to read it.
And yeah, I like dogs. Love 'em. Wolves, too. Hate pit bulls, though. So? ;)
Don't talk about a part of Seattle like that. It's a part of Seattle that so many people love.
It was much tastier.
I....I can't even....
Yes I can.
DO YOU NOT REALIZE HOW COMPLETELY BAT#*%@! CRAZY YOU SOUND WITH THIS NONSENSE?!? Oh my #@%*&@?$ god you overly PC, thin-skinned social justice idiots get more absurd and unbelievably cartoonish by the day. A wall of "white privilege"? Where do you PC-bro dregs even come up with this nonsense? It's almost as if there's some super secret 4chan like forum out there somewhere that all of you have found and just post about how you're going to one-up one another on the absurdity track every day. You've GOT to be trolling us with this crap.
Oh wait, you're pro-Sawant and like writing billion dollar cheques with absolutely no accounting of where the money would go - of course you aren't trolling us - you actually believe the absolutely insane things that go on in your head.
Somebody please investigate this and do a piece on what sort of chemical weapon test was conducted on Americans back when you PC-bro scourge came out of the woodwork - there had to have been some sort of agent that altered your brains in some way to make you this certifiably nuts.
Mow your damn lawn and sit the hell down.
No. Not EVERYTHING is about race. Some things are about culture and city traditions and harmless fun. A wall covered in a very human habit-- chewed up gum-- is nothing more than that.
I suspect this article was written by a white person who deems themself a progressive liberal.
That’s because no one else wants him and you can’t just go and fire your token Angry Black Marxist.
“As a non-white photographer who has joyfully taken colorful photos of folks from every skin color on the spectrum standing in front of this wall with their touristing family…”
Firstly: You cannot possibly know joy as a non-white in this racist country.
Secondly: Only whites can be tourists, all other races are refugees. Tourism is another shameful example of white privilege that should be stomped out.
But there is a difference between agreeing that racism exists, and being so gullible as to imagine it is the determining factor in everything that exists. You should really be ashamed of the thinking that went into that blog post, Charles.
Because that's totally not a completely hysterical conclusion to drive at...regarding gum...on...a wall.
You keep using that word. I do not think it means what you think it means.
Down with gum! It's a white thing!
BWM, BWM, BWM, BWM, BWM, BWM !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
