Apparently No One Told Him

Another follow-up post, this time with some local news. Back in August, a black kid named Dondre Eades made a minor splash locally for wearing a stupid shirt that said "I Hope I Don't Get Killed For Being Black Today" and being forced to change his shirt. As I wrote in Who Is Going To Tell Him?, someone needs to tell Dondre that if he meets an untimely end, it will almost certainly come at the hands of another black guy, not the cops or White people. 

Dondre's White mama, Dawn Eades, made a huge stink over her son not being able to wear a dumb t-shirt to school, perhaps thinking the fleeting moment of fame would be enough to soothe the shame of apparently getting knocked up and then abandoned by Dondre's daddy. Also she apparently hopes that "racist" cops die in the line of duty. A real charmer.

Anyway, now the ACLU is jumping into the fray, having no actual civil liberties to defend apparently.


Yep, in 2020 when schools and the entire country are struggling day to day just to get by, the ACLU is suing a school system so Dondre Eades can wear a stupid t-shirt with a ridiculous and inaccurate message.

Now a school district in the midst of a "pandemic" gets to spend a bunch of money and effort fighting a lawsuit over a damn t-shirt.

Welcome to a glimpse of America in 2021 and beyond, a society that spends most of it's time trying to placate the loudest voices while the normal people who keep things running are accused of being the problem.

  1. Poor, oppressed Dondre stands far less of a chance of being killed FOR being black than I do for being White. But statistically, he is squarely in the cross-hairs to lose either his freedom or his life WHILE acting black and willfully engaging in the typical lawlessness that is a rite of passage for young vibrant males in this country.

    Dondre will discover soon enough that his black privilege ends outside of the warm, cuddly embrace of the fawning media. The savage law of the street will easily identify this potential Rhodes Scholar as just another expendable mark. I am willing to bet that we have not heard the last of Dondre Eades, but there won't come a whisper from CNNABCNBCCBS when he and inevitable destiny collide. I expect instead to read all the gory details right here on Dissident Thoughts, at which point I will recognize and then Say His Name one final time with grim satisfaction.

    1. He is likely headed for a bad end, being an angry young black man isn't a great way to live a long time. Ironically enough, as I mentioned in the original post, his mama is all about black lives matter but she chose to live in North Manchester, IN which is 95% White and around 1% black. I guess their lives matter but only from a distance.

    2. Yes, but don't forget that North Manchester is home to Manchester University. So, that 95% White is going to include plenty-o-commies, "church" style. My guess would be that the coal-burning Ms. Eades fits in that category.

    3. She struck me as a particularly dim bulb, one who belies the jive when a brother is looking to score with a White woman. Maybe she is a janitor or cafeteria worker at Man U.?

  2. Well, I generally tend to be on the "tolerant" side of free speech. Could someone wear the same shirt with a different race named?

    1. I asked that in my original post but we both know the answer. I get ugly looks when I wear my "Black Rifles Matter" t-shirt.
