I’m thinking about 500 of us marching on his lawn should do the trick…
What should I tell this proud American when I meet him on Saturday morning?
Wow. People like this actually exist? It seems too insane to be true. :/
They exist on the Right as much as they exist on Left.
That can’t be a real post. That just can’t be. I have no words.
My wife found it. Yup. Real.
How can he be this person be so ignorant? Wow, just wow.
Not a minority, but I will march with you!
“Douche” would be a simple answer, but the proper answer would be to not go, and post an ad on craigslist encouraging others not to support racism.
“Proper” is incredibly overrated. When’s the last time you heard of someone scouring craigslist for an ethics lesson? To quote JasiriX, “start a riot.”
“Huge tool” describes him pretty accurately, I think.
huge tool. exactly what I was thinking – wow.
Well, it would be worthy being upset about, but it doesn’t appear to be real. Do a map search anywhere. There is no Apolocha Trail in Brentwood, TN. Or anywhere in the United States for that matter.
I’m with Jay. Edmondson Pike and Murray Lane are on different sides of the interstate in Brentwood, never intersect, or pass near the other (from the directions in the ad text). The address in the ad is not valid on any map I tried to use to find it.
I think whoever put this ad out must be trolling.
There is sleeze in the 1%? whodah figgered?
It sounds likes you are bigoted against a made up people called the 1% how are you any different from this person…? Assuming this person is rich and heartless and associating them with rich people, is just a bigoted.
The post indicates he’s sleeze. No where does it indicate he is in the richest 1% of the world’s population. For that matter, it doesn’t even indicate he’s a he. Prejudices are sneaky aren’t they?
Even if it did, I’m pretty sure he was sleeze before he reached the 1%.
Sleeze does not discriminate between economic status. It’s an equal opportunity affliction.
I would definitely be up for introducing this gentleman to the “five fold ministry” of my right hand. Followed by anointing him repeatedly with my size 14 nike cortez! Awww, c’mon people, I’m only serious!
Vatos Locos Forever!
I think you should go in there, be as proper as can be, break the stereotype, and let the Holy Spirit blow up the moment!
Ummmm… yeah. Wow. I would be survived if he survives the weekend without getting punched once. Wow.
If you have the Mexican side covered, I can pull the Deaf community together!
Not really, but if I lived in TN, it would definitely be happening.
I can’t believe someone actually posted that.
This has to be some sick person’s idea of a joke! No way it’s real…
Whoa…the Latina from the hood side of me wants someone to hold my earrings and drop some major hurt on him and his klan-lovin friends. The refined, college graduate, Jesus-loving Mexican-American part of me wants to stop by engage him in cordial conversation. Then as I leave, drop the “bombshell” that he just befriended a Mexican. #crazymanmindwillbeblown!
I’m safe. it didn’t say that Japanese people who look Middle Eastern aren’t welcome. I’m glad. I needed a virtual plethora of someone else’s goodies.
Does “a virtual plethora” mean I only get a flash drive with pictures of the items I want? Or is it a mutisensory like virtual reality technology?
Has to be a “joke.” None of those reference points seem to exist. The fact that someone would put a fake ad up like this is still absurdly offensive.
Stunned. I cannot believe this.
I normally don’t use this phrase, but this definitely gets an oh hell no! out of me.
I think the first 2 words sum him up nicely…
I think it’s always polite to say hello when you meet someone new. So for this case, walk up and say, “Hola!”
wow…. I think you should totally go!
I agree with the others who say that this isn’t a real address. Edmondson Pike and Murray Lane aren’t even near each other. Someone went to a lot of trouble just to make themselves look like a fool!!
They WOULD live on a road called Apolocha Trail. hahaha
Wonder if it’s a flash mob prank on this unsuspecting dude or his real beliefs?
If that ad was placed in Riverside that dude would be in some trouble, for sure…
It’s sad to see that this type of blatant, racial ignorance still exists in this day and age.
I would just say,”God bless you.” My mom always told me,”Just server those people baby.” The world doesn’t need more bitterness but love.
If this guy were real…I think you and everyone else on here wanting to punch, cuss, criticize, kick, and condemn this guy…should put an arm around his shoulder and walk the talk of inviting him to be a member of POTSC.
Doesn’t he qualify for grace?
Sorry Carlos. I didn’t mean to imply you wanted to do any of the things that those who commented suggested. You simply asked the question…they replied.
just a bit disheartening that love and grace are touted regularly throughout this community…yet no one suggested you respond with “Jesus.”
Guess its a reminder we all still have a ways to go.
If I were closer I’d go. My dad’s Mexican, legal, and pays taxes.
I dare you to love the hell out of this obviously broken man. If I were latino or minority I would go prove through some kind of kind act of service or gift that his prejudices are rooted in his own fear and not in the truth of God’s love for all His kids.
Proverbs 25:21-22 MESSAGE …
“If you see your enemy hungry, go buy him lunch;
if he’s thirsty, bring him a drink.
Your generosity will surprise him with goodness,
and God will look after you.”
Pretty bold to make such a racist statement, followed by your HOME ADDRESS.
This is crazy!
wow. just wow.
I will say he does have some B@LL$ to say this, and put his address in there…might be careful…bet he has some pistols too. .
If I lived closer i’d go with you!!
It’s not a real address.
The more i think about it…
“…But I tell you: Love your enemies and pray for those who persecute you, that you may be sons of your Father in heaven. He causes his sun to rise on the evil and the good, and sends rain on the righteous and the unrighteous. If you love those who love you, what reward will you get? Are not even the tax collectors doing that? And if you greet only your brothers, what are you doing more than others? Do not even pagans do that? Be perfect, therefore, as your heavenly Father is perfect.”
So you show up and pray for him (the guy who wrote the stuff in the picture) on his front lawn.
wow! i’d prob show up w/my brown & multiracial family, talking up a storm in Spanish & listening to some salsa! lol… and then, show them our level of maturity by actually making purchases. kill ‘em with kindness.
anyway, just got word that u’ll be speaking @ our 1st wednesday service in november @ our church, C3. can i just say i was dancing! my family & i are so excited!! i’ve followed u for a while & have made my sons read ur blog (j/k, they read it on their own). let me know if u’d like us to cook u some cuban/colombian food & bring u some cafe con leche (@janefigueras).
