Arcade owner apologizes for using N-word at Black Lives Matter protest

"Now we have threats against my family. My employees are receiving threats. Everybody is calling to boycott the business which I've tried to make the funnest place in Tacoma," Voros-bond said. "I try to make this a really fun, great place to be, and we don't believe in this kind of hate and stuff like that. It's totally not what we are for. To be portrayed like this off of a short YouTube video is just killing us."

In hindsight, it was probably not the smartest plan to drop the 'N' bomb at a Black Lives Matter protest. Just sayin'.

Man, you can put millions of black lives that matter into foreclosure as long as you don't use the "Voldemort" word. Hey, I don't make the rules.

It's a "Harry" situation for those who got "muggle'd" by the system. It's the dirty little "Chamber of Secrets" few are willing to talk about. It makes me so "inferius" sometimes! How on earth did we become so "stupify'd" as a society?

I don't know. WW1, WW2, .... maybe the 3rd time is a PETRONAS charm. Likely not.

Other than a crack team of corporate lawyers and public relations experts stepping in to put a positive spin on the incredibly inappropriate actions and words of a business's top executives and other than the fact that a small business is never too big to fail, is there really any difference between a business like Dorky's and a major bank?

Is that really the sort of question we should be asking? Wouldn't it just be a whole lot easier if we simply ask, "Would you like fries with that?" Fries make me so happy! :)

Gallows humor.

Woah, deep reference.

> "Would you like fries with that?"

They don't call it life shortening for nothing.

They don't tell the condemned they are going to fry for nothing.

But I tallow.
