Default Serious question here.........

How long should things that you did in the past haunt you for? I'm just listening to the Virginia governor apologize for some costume that he was dressed in many years ago, I guess it was racist, whatever. So many times celebrities, politicians, etc have been forced to resign or have been called out over something that they have done or said in the long ago past. Who really gives a f'k, in most cases you're not the same person you were growing up, 10, 20. 30 years ago, so why are people so hell bent on digging up your past to find something that was out of character from who you are now. Times have changed, things in the past may have been considered funny or "acceptable" should not come to haunt you now. People really need to lighten the f'k up.

it's ironic, we're supposed to be tolerant of people's choices and or individuality but heaven forbid someone do something that may be a wee bit offensive but certainly not world ending. I shake my head and what this world has turned into.

Does not effect the Clinton family much, Lord knows their closet is overflowing. I agree the past is not the present but people have tunnel vision.

there was a time not too long ago and which many of us lived through, where things were different. you could disagree with people, shake hands apologize if necessary then go get a beer. you could dress up as ANYONE OR ANYTHING you wanted for costume parties and no one gave two *****. I 100% agree its out of control today. the past is the past. we can learn from it, or rip it apart and forget. on the one hand, I think every generation worries about the ext being smart, strong or good enough. on the other, its an epidemic these days.

Yeah, seems like those times are long past us. People get offended for the slightest thing and many jump on the bandwagon to ensure the event is never forgiven/forgotten.

exactly....do I really gaf about some racist comments someone made (white or black) 20 years ago, not a f''kn chance. If they definitely have changed and that's not who they are anymore WTF cares. The past belongs in the past, be judged on your current merits not past indiscretions. Kevin Hart said some anti-homo stuff 15 years ago and now he can't host the Oscars because all the weaklings out there got their panties in a knot. F'k people are so f'kn gay.

Thing is, nobody WOULD give a ****...

Except...

His political party just tried a few months ago to use another man's decades old Yearbook entries against him in a false narrative where the man was accused of sexual assault and attempted rape, in order to deny a duly elected President a completely appropriate Supreme Court appointment.

Now, we have this man, with clear evidence of racist tendencies, something we are led to believe the Democrats, his political party, simply will not accept from people. His yearbook entry should be allowed to lie there as nothing more than the memory of the stupid **** this man did in his youth, but now, because HIS political party weaponized the school Yearbook, he gets to ******* hang by his nuts.

The Right may be the side calling for his head, but it's the ******* Democrats that laid out the guillotine.

I said this in the other thread, overall MOST of us realize that stuff like that was done in the past when it was acceptable, funny or whatever. MOST people still have a sense of humor and don't get butt hurt over this crap. The minority wants us to believe that EVERYONE is outraged and so offended. It wasn't that long ago that stuff like this wasn't such a big deal. I still say that social media will be the downfall of this country, you can share stuff and drive a narrative in minutes like never before. You can sway public opinion with no facts and if you are wrong no one cares tomorrow the damage is done, no one cares about the truth or the correction.

The OP was Racist just last week in a post, and I can not forgive him. He knows which post it was, I will let him apologize for it and it's content, and then we will test his theory.

Depending on how malevolent you are, some things should haunt you forever.
