GUESS WHERE?

  1. Paris

  2. It’s also a picture from 2015. But then the racists throughout Europe have started having a go at the Roma again, like Matteo Salvini in Italy, so it was only a matter of time before it happened on ATW as well.

  3. Salvini’s a racist? Next up they’ll be accusing Trump of racism:

    “Donald Trump is a “racist” who has used the “N-word” repeatedly, Omarosa Manigault Newman, once the most prominent African American in the White House, claims in a searing memoir.

    The future US president was caught on mic uttering the taboo racial slur “multiple times” during the making of his reality TV show The Apprentice and there is a tape to prove it, according to Manigault Newman, citing three unnamed sources. Trump has been haunted from around the time of his election in 2016 by allegations that outtakes from the reality TV show exist in which he is heard saying the N-word and using other offensive language…”

  4. Omarosa is a piece of work. Trump bring this nobody into the White House to give her a chance and she was nothing but an irritant. Now as a disgruntled ex-staffer she write a book with supposed dirt on Trump. Typical.

  5. Trump was a complete idiot to give that sneaky, empty head reality celebrity any sort of White House job. It does not speak well of his judgment.

  6. I have to agree with that Phantom. I think it was cuz she was black!

  7. I’m going to guess that it’s Portland, Oregon in the States — the Occupy I.C.E. protests

  8. Did I win?

  9. Omarosa is the perfect representation of the trump administration

  10. I’m loving me some Omarosa! April Ryan sez to Omarosa: Keep my name out of your mouth!

    lol. so good it hurts.

  11. When the Apprentice nigger tapes surface the Trumpistas will be out in force claiming:

    (a) that their man is not a racist and / or
    (b) so what if he is? It’s not a crime is it?

  12. Peter

    If such a tape exists, this bastard is dead politically, end of.

    Though the dead Enders will say it is “ locker room talk “, Because that’s what they do

  13. LBJ said nigger a lot, but was one of the great presidents that actually did something for black people. Trump will go down in history the same way IMHO.

  14. Charles, I expect that kind of stuff from the others here but not from you

    Please reconsider that statement

    If Trump said that, it’s a big deal

  15. You can’t compare the actions of one person in one period of time, with the morals and values of that time, with the actions of another person in another period of time. Many of the American founding fathers owned slaves. They are still considered, given the context of their time, to be great men. If someone however owned a slave now they would be considered an inhuman monster.

    So just because LBJ, in the context of a southern man in the 1950s and 60s, said the word nigger does not mean that it is somehow ok for Donald Trump to say it.

  16. “I’m going to guess that it’s Portland, Oregon in the States — the Occupy I.C.E. protests

    Did I win?”

    It’s a picture of a makeshift Romani camp in Paris, taken in 2015. It’s relevancy to anything is pretty questionable.

  17. When the blacks stop saying it, I agree.

  18. I broadly agree that it would be better if black people stopped using the word to describe themselves but again there is a distinction between a black guy using a word that is insensitive to blacks and a white guy using that same word. Neither should use it but the second version of it is much worse.

  19. Nigga for me, but not for thee, eh Seamus? I agree that neither should use it, but if Trump did, it’s not a game changer for me. He would be no different than the rap musician I was forced to hear while stopped at a red light this morning.

  20. Again, I expect better amigo

    If Donald Trump, in 2018, used that word, it would indicate a very great hatred of his part.

    That’s a word that many whites would have used 40 or 50 years ago, but I very rarely hear it now. It would be completely unthinkable that a word like that would be used in educated company.

    I think that would be a very big mistake to defend such a comment or explain it away

  21. Phantom, thankfully, you don’t live in the South. And your right, it would not be used in educated company.

    I will leave it there, and let Trump fend for himself!

  22. He would be no different than the rap musician I was forced to hear while stopped at a red light this morning.

    Completely disagree

    The rap “ musician “ did not use that word with hatred in his heart

    If Trump used the word, he most certainly -did- use it with hatred

  23. California

  24. I contend that blacks use the word as a form of self-hatred.

  25. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=9h9xmnfAHYo

  26. Putting aside Trump for a while, don’t you see the glaring hypocrisy of a black rapper making millions for using a word that would get a white man fired?

  27. That word was very commonly used in the Northeast, until 40/50 years ago. Especially among the working class Irish and Italians in urban areas. You would never hear Jews use the term

    A ( Trump supporting ) Friend used the term a couple of weeks ago. It was the first time I had heard it used in a normal conversation in ages.

    I don’t think we need to go back there

  28. Blacks use the word to limit it’s offensiveness. An effort to own the term, to remove the toxic nature of it. In the same way that some gay people have reclaimed the word queer.

    Overwhelmingly when black people use it they are not using it as a put down or an attempt to dehumanise or attack other black people. Between black people it has almost become a term of endearment, two people who have been abused by the system coming together in that shared capacity.

    The same cannot be said for white use of the word, where it is, usually, an attempt to attack and dehumanise black people.

  29. Rap is an art form for the permanently angry violent stupid and uneducated

  30. I don’t think we need to go back there

    I totally agree.

  31. My friend who used the term is a resident of Staten Island New York

  32. But to be clear, I’m advocating that nobody say it.

    If Trump did, bad on him, but my point was that I think you overstate the damage.

  33. I think That race relations among ordinary people are so much better and they were decades ago

    I don’t want the likes of Donald Trump, or Sarah Jeong to ruin everything that has been achieved.

  34. You did put your money where your mouth is regarding cancelling the NYT. I admire that, Noel notwithstanding.

  35. An entire thread dedicated to something which didn’t happen and doesn’t exist. You commies are nuts. Even The Guardian isn’t getting its knickers in a twist, and that lot will go mental over anything Trump.

    https://www.theguardian.com/us-news/2018/aug/12/unhinged-omarosa-manigault-newman-book-trump

    For the record, Trump’s purported use of the N-Word, which made headlines last week, was never much of a secret. It had been reported in the press for years. Against this backdrop, Omarosa would be hard-pressed to claim ignorance. Or an epiphany.

    So this woman has a book to sell and she’s using lies to do it. Like Comey.

  36. Sorry, did someone mention Keith Ellison?

  37. Pete, LOL.

    Barack Obama set black/white relations back 20 yrs.

  39. Obama, who sat at the feet of the racist Reverend Wright for years, was part of the problem.

    If anyone’s got some good tips as to how to get past the NYT paywall, That could be of some interest

  40. Phantom, is this your first Sunday without the NYT?

  41. Actually I have not subscribed to the Sunday print edition for a long time

    I will I believe get the print edition tomorrow and Tuesday, and that’s it

    I was on the Monday through Friday plan

  42. //If anyone’s got some good tips as to how to get past the NYT paywall,//

    Phantom, I’ll remain grateful to you for cancelling that I took out my NYT.
    It’s really a great read, and after two days I’m already hooked (not so much on the political stuff; you guys probably find it difficult to undertand, but for an outsider these same jaded questions of US politics soon get tiresome for an outsider), tho probably when I’m back at work I won’t have time to read so much of it.

    I wonder if I gave you my PW, would you be able to log in from where you are, or would their computer realise that, as the famous Boyle Roche said, I’m not a bird and can’t be in two places at the same time.

  43. == that I took out my NYT subscription

  44. I used to deliver the Sunday Times as a kid

    It could be 8 inches thick at times, filled with news, features and ads. The glossy magazine section Was as big as most papers by itself, Filled with the most beautiful lush color advertisements

    News vendors in New York City Used to have mountainous stacks of the Sunday times for sale

  45. The standard ( US ) digital subscription allows a subscriber to give digital reading rights to a family member or friend

    Check your account settings

  46. Bad luck:
    “Bonus subscriptions
    You currently are not able to share your subscriptions with other Times readers.”

  47. why do you want to get past the pay wall?

  48. There are several tricks….. easiest one find the article you want than search for others on the net discussing it. You can usually find a link to an unblocked copy.

  49. It’s always amusing when commies want you to pay for their stuff.

  50. Patrick

    I want to punish them financially in my own penny-ante way, but that does not mean that There are no news reports or columns that I want to read

    There is plenty of good reporting that takes place there still

  51. I know I read them.

  52. and I don’t pay.

    ….if it’s on the net you can find anything free…. it just takes time.

  53. 52 responses and only one, which was the first one, could be bothered to reply to the subject of the post.

    In answer to Peter, which is the only one worth bothering with, I can only ask; “Is the camp still there ?” And; “If not, where have they now gone and do they have the right to be there ?”

    The thing is, if the Roma wish to ‘travel’ as they do, I have no problem with it. So long as they clean up after them. But they do not, squatting on someone else’s property and bring a host of other ‘issues’ with them. They attract disdain. Not because of who they are, but because of the total lack of respect for others and their property.

  54. The people in the photo seem to be more sure than most travellers that SNCF trains are always late.

  55. bullshit Mark read closer…. there are at least two. I said California and posted a video even…. don’t throw stones unless you know you’re right.

  56. I’ll tell yo what wherever it is it needs more immigrants…..

  57. bullshit Mark read closer…. there are at least two

    Out of now a total of 50 plus.

    Thanks for that.

  58. Pretty sure I made at least two comments directly related to the picture.

  59. Mark B: I guessed it was a photo of Portland, Oregon.

    Pete: am I right?

  60. That’s 4…..

    Shoot some posts the thread has absolutely NOTHING to do with the post… it’s the nature of the beast.

  61. It’s France, but that guess has already been correctly made.
    Do I still win a prize?

  62. Patty –

    It’s Paris, a city now best avoided. Interesting that you had it down as Portland. I read that San Fran is rapidly going downhill also.

  63. Told you:

    @FrankLuntz

    I’m in @Omarosa’s book on page 149. She claims to have heard from someone who heard from me that I heard Trump use the N-word.

    Not only is this flat-out false (I’ve never heard such a thing), but Omarosa didn’t even make an effort to call or email me to verify. Very shoddy work.

    @MichaelCohen212

    LTo the many dozens of #journalists who called me, questioning @OMAROSA claim in her new book that @POTUS @realDonaldTrump took a note from me, put it in his mouth and ate it…I saw NO such thing and am shocked anyone would take this seriously.

    You commies will believe any old nonsense.

  64. You are all wrong. It’s a futuristic vision of a customs waiting area at Dover following Brexit 😉

  65. An entire thread dedicated to something which didn’t happen and doesn’t exist.

    Akin to posting a photo from three years ago and suggesting it has some relevance today?
