  1. Statues come down if blacks don’t like them.

    Universities abandon teaching English grammar because blacks can’t understand it.

    Whites are fired for saying, “All lives matter.”

    The country lowers standards for blacks in medical schools, lowers required scores on the bar exam for them.

    High schools give diplomas to blacks who can barely read.

  2. The Cristoffa Corombo (real name of Christopher Columbus) statue (installed 1933) belonged in Chicago’s Columbus Park (Austin community), which had Italians as the second dominant group, after the Irish back then. 😑

    A Columbus statue never belonged in Grant Park.

    Unlike Columbus, Ulysses Grant was an American

    Columbus never ventured into what eventually became the United States of America. ☹️

  3. The Chicago Police and Fire Departments have lowered minimal passing scores. ☹️

    Oak Park River Forest High School (OPRF HS) always lowers the educational and discipline standards

    Soon, OPRF HS will be known as “Proviso East High School 2” or “Austin High School West”. ☹️

  4. don’t worry this will be flipped around to say the black panthers said this…

  5. Patrick Henry, a founding father and anti-federalist, was against the Constitution and did not attend the convention, which was a federal power grab compared to the Articles of Confederation.

    On the Constitution, Henry famously declared, “I smell a rat.”

    The “quote” by Henry on that shirt may not even be his words.

    But, yes, that’s what constitutions do.

    They are literally rules for the people who govern us.

    Even a monarchy could be restrained by a constitution which is called constitutional monarchy and is different than absolute monarchy.
