They were likely afraid of getting sued but still, that's a good pre-emptive move

>Federal investigators wrote they identified the man from a YouTube video where he was at times carrying a Confederate flag - and at one point, investigators wrote he sprayed a Capitol police officer with mace.

If he had been a person of colour, he would have been handled "very differently"...like President Obama agrees and the Head of Capitol Security agrees

"very differently" = shot dead

>On June 25, 2020, the band announced that To Better Days would be their final release under the name Slaves, on a Facebook statement, the band wrote,

As obstinate supporters of the BLM movement, we cannot continue to tie our music and our positive message to a word associated with such negative weight and hurt.[31]

She's likely telling that same story and having a laugh at you (in a good way) being embarrassed since she likely knew the band...

I, as a person of color, had someone say that, to motivate me, they were going to whip me...

Awkward eye moment

They said "I cannot believe I said that"

They didn't mean it in a racial manner just like you didn't

I would really like to know which "Well-regulated militia" this woman belonged to, was going to belong to, had belonged to that warranted her having a weapon.

/me settling back and getting ready for the following false arguments

  1. The 2A says the right to bear arms shall not be infringed - despite the fact that they are in fact legally infringed all the time

  2. "well-regulated" means in working order, not actual regulations

  3. a militia means "all the people"

  4. something equally stupid
