  1. Racism is as old as apple pie.

  2. Uh, did anyone take a brief moment to consider that this is a Roman Legion reference? You know, kinda like where the Nazis actually got it from 🙄

  3. The nazi salute isnt inherently offensive. We used to use it while saying the pledge of allegiance and the romans used it. If the nazis used the salute we use today in the military would that be offensive? Nazis are offensive, hand gestures cant be offensive.

  16. First the mustache
    Then the wave
    Hitler owned a dog too I guess that’s next.

  17. Obviously intended as a joke, even if in bad taste. There is a black woman, a black man and Hispanics in the photo too. This is presented as propaganda (complete with music intended to illicit emotion) and not a journalistic news report. Even as a liberal I have to say: stop being so damn candy-assed!

  18. haha dummies! These are the types that let Epstein"off"himself.

  22. "They didn't know the connotations of the gesture" LOL the shit people say…

  23. The investigation concluded in findings that did not reveal "any overt motivation or intent that this was a discriminatory act towards any racial, religious, or ethnic group."

  40. So is the black person with the dreadlocks on the end a white supremacist too? Like the 2 black, white supremacists that attacked the Jewish people? Its unfortunate we cant believe anything you say. Probably a doctored photo. You guys lie about everything. Boo hiss

  41. This is insane. A hand gesture is illegal now? One group gets to hold a monopoly on what a hand gesture means forevermore? What a joke.

  42. Sometimes you play to much .
