Progressive Poet Gets Triggered by Old Photo of Coal Miners

A restaurant in Phoenix, AZ has a picture of coalminers having a drink after their shift in an old pub. The picture is clearly old and the men are covered in coal dust and soot. The picture has trigged a progressive poet who took to a website to complain about it.

Why?

Because the men were in blackface.

But they weren’t. They were coal miners just out of the mines.

It doesn’t matter. It upset the poet.

One of the problems with the twenty-first century is that we are all so interconnected, the most hypersensitive people prone to outrage get disproportionate attention.

The restaurant did nothing wrong. The picture does nothing wrong. There’s just something wrong with the outraged poet.
