Plantation Shutters Are Now Deemed Racist


Painters don't refer to plantation shutters as plantation shutters anymore
“Using the word ‘plantation’ romanticizes the old South, a slave economy," Kelly explained “When white people hear the word ‘plantation’ they may think of a big white house with pillars and southern oak trees. But when a Black person hears that word, it evokes a past of slavery.”
Libtard from ABC

I think the band NWA should be scrubbed from history.

For the same reason.

Re: Plantation Shutters Are Now Deemed Racist


Been dealing w/idiots since I was knee high to a mosquito w all the riots, protests & chit. Grew up right in the heart of it. It’s like the master bedroom thing I posted a few weeks back. Those idiots might steer others to the side but plantation shutters, master bath, & low life welfare bleeding pieces of chit will always be just what they are

Wearing a cotton shirt. And cotton skivvies. And cotton socks. And blow your snot into a cotton kerchief.

The big money was always in hemp for cordage. Those sailing ships used a lot of rope.

Re: Plantation Shutters Are Now Deemed Racist


Mike you're dead right. That's what I've noticed where most of my stress comes too. I go to work to make an honest living and work hard making sure the final product looks right and the customer is happy then I leave and see everyone acting like crazy primates. Defund the police, calling a pull rope a noose, and plantation shutters rayciss. It's like I'm living in two different worlds. I live near a big city so everything is louder. When people think crazy they act crazy and everyone is drinking the cool aid. Outside of weather on exterior jobs my fixed variables are mostly man (people). Honestly, my stress is coming from things I have no control of. Every time I check my email or watch tv listen to the radio or even walk outside and see a BLM sign in someone's yard or going to get something to eat it's this lawlessness rammed in my face it's just I can't get away from it. So thinking about taking a vacay to the middle of nowhere or even moving to the countryside but only have been thinking it because I have too much work to do that now but my mind needs a break from this circus.

Re: Plantation Shutters Are Now Deemed Racist


People are nuts, it's how people are.

I don't let them stress me out much, I keep focused on things of my choice.

Sorry you're having a tough time, I'd probably be listening to Rodney Dangerfield or one if the others to get a few laughs along the way.

Some people don't think it's their right to be offended by something......... it's their duty to be offended by something.

Re: Plantation Shutters Are Now Deemed Racist


Oh well, wouldn't be the first time I was called a racist over something that wasn't racist.

I believe in something I heard the other day, Any word that represents ones nationality or skin color in front of "Lives Matter", is racist.

So 'Zombie Lives Matter' is racist, even though zombies are not alive?

Nothing is worse than having a mindless zombie in the middle of the isle at HD when I need materials and staggering around me when I'm trying to think.
