Re: “UVM's Kake Walk Featured Blackface Performers for Decades

Mr. Assumptions.....you still haven't shared with us what you're doing to fight racism. We know you hate people who are but, since it's Black History Month, please tell us what you're doing now (or ever) to eradicate racism?

Re: “UVM's Kake Walk Featured Blackface Performers for Decades

Hey assumptions, you're confusing artwork with narrative. The issue is the issue I raise. Are the Abenaki erased or not? Are the 92 of 93 "notables" white or not.? Is it an offensive public memorial like the Lee statue or not? Why is obsessing against racism a bad thing?

What are you doing to fight racism in Vt besides trolling web sites to condemn those that are?

Try logic and discourse rather than always posting ad hominem attacks against people you disagree with.................so boring!

Re: “UVM's Kake Walk Featured Blackface Performers for Decades

Why are Burlington whites continuing the defense of the Marketplace mural which erases 12,000 years of Abenaki civilization and contains a list of "notables" of which 92 out of 93 are white. The mural is our Robert E Lee statue

Re: “Feds Say Burlington Pot Shop Owner Possessed Guns, Sold to Minors

He apparently wasn't too worried about getting busted. What was his big crime? Oh yeah, premature commercialization. Neither he nor any of us should be stupidly sitting around waiting for Phil Scott's mythical pie-in-the-sky saliva test. Time to begin a French-like flannel-vest movement. From Mayor Weinberger's toxic matrix to incrementalist Scott, we're all ripe for popular democracy and non-violent civil disobedience to break out. Bourgeois representative democracy has failed us

Re: “Knodell Will Run for Burlington City Council as an Independent

Joan Knodell voted to keep the white supremacist Marketplace mural up until 2022. She put the interests of Church Street capitalists above the common decency of anti-racist inclusion. Casting a racist vote should disqualify you from even entering. No racists on city council....#noknodell

Re: “What’s Left? Young Burlington Progs Forge Ahead Without Jane Knodell

The collapse of his pro-capitalist voting bloc on council (Wright, Knodell and Hartnett) has the mayor's machine scurrying for candidates. Now we have the fauxroots "run, Jane, run" effort. The fact that she cast a racist vote to maintain the white supremacist Marketplace mural should have been enough to disqualify her. No racists on city council. #noapARTheid....#noknodell

Re: “Hartnett Withdraws From Burlington City Council Race

Within two months, the corporatist/rightist wing of the Mayor's council electoral bloc have hit the skids. Wright, Knodell and now Hartnett. All three voted for the white supremacist Marketplace mural. Three down, Deane, Mason, Paul, Roof and Shannon to go...#noapARTheid
