Driving in PA with window tinting makes you a target for racism!
#1
Gawker makes me laugh with how hard they try to find examples of perceived non-existent oppression, racism and inequality in EVERYTHING. I just read this article where they made the story of this black man driving a truck for a fracking outfit in PA sound like he's driving in 1960's Mississippi with evil hillbilly mountain Pennsylvanians trying to shut him down at every turn. This article just oozes with bleeding heart, self hating, liberalism. It's pathetic.

-Pulling someone over for having dark window tint on their car? Racist!
-Getting a ticket for driving without insurance? Racist!
-Having you license suspended for driving without insurance? Racist!
-Maybe getting passed over for a driving job because you committed a crime? Racist!
-Getting demoted for failing to do your job? The man is keeping him down!
-Waking up early to get to work at 7? Brutal!

Driving a truck is a dangerous, dirty job where your life is in peril 24/7 as if you'd been forced to work in the mines!

It fascinates me people who write this shit believe this crap.

I'm fairly certain that after market window tinting to a certain level isn't allowed in PA, and you can and will be pulled over for it. I've heard of PSP stopping people and testing the level of tint and if you're below 70% you can get cited for it.

If the windows are tinted dark enough that they cannot see in, how do they what race of person is driving it before they pull them over?

Need to read the article again later to see how you concluded what you did.

Anyways, to all those here that are always complaining about no jobs and not getting paid what your are supposedly worth, click the link above and check out the numbers being paid!

Quote:That particular stop—his third with the same cop within months—happened on the same day his insurance had lapsed. Driving without insurance is an automatic three-month suspension, which Aaron thought he had already served. But he'd never sent the actual license card to the county while he was off the road.

So, he got stopped three times, but we only know about one where he got stopped for tinted windows, the others we don't know about. He allowed his insurance to lapse, that would appear to be his fault. He thought he served his 3 month suspension but never sent in his "license card" to the county? So it would seem he failed multiple times.

Driving with a CDL is just a little bit more involved paperwork wise than driving a Lincoln Navigator, there's a lot more paperwork involved and a lot more responsibility. So maybe this is a good thing. If he wasn't responsible enough to keep up his insurance, he might not have been a responsible CDL driver either.

The only thing with that is jobs in mining and exploration can be fleeting are are highly subject to the price of that commodity, so its not a job you can bank your retirement on, but you can make hay while the sun shines. People in this field move constantly too. There are endless cases of drilling crews coming into an area and pouring massive amounts of money into the local economy. The city uses that opportunity to build all kinds of stuff they can't afford and then the drillers move on and that money vanishes and the city is severely in the red almost immediately. There's all kinds of gold mining going on right now because the price is so high, but if the economy recovers (probably won't but for the sake of the hypothetical...) the gold price drops and thousands of jobs are lost almost overnight.

Yeah. Yeah and yeah. But where did the OP come up with that everything was based on racism? Other than the one line of pulling over blacks and pr I did not see the rest of the OPs bullet points blamed on racism in the article.

Like I said, I need to read it again.

Apparently he was also stopped for driving while suspended or revoked:

That's a hell of a interesting take. If I was sitting home bitching about working all week for around min wage or if I could not find any job or I was stuck living at home I sure as hell would get off my ass and grab some of that $70k even if it was just for a few years. But this boom I don't think is as temporary as you say but even if it was I would be there yesterday.

I'm a geologist. No gas well can produce forever. The vast majority of the gas is extracted during the first few years and then it's just a case of diminishing returns. There are lots of boomtowns right now created from natural gas drilling in the Midwest that are in a devastated state after the drillers wrapped up and pulled out. The state of the industry now is not indicative of the job market as a whole. You can make a shit load of money without a college degree diving in water treatment plants, scraping someone's brains up out of the carpet after they blow their head off on the couch, or you can make a huge amount of money underwater welding, but those jobs aren't indicative of the economy either. Sure it's better than nothing, but exploration is not something that gives you much stability in the long run, which is what is desperately needed right now specifically more than anything. The market needs more careers, not just jobs.

I think I missed the part in the article where it said that now he's gainfully employed he's going to pay all the money that he owes both to the state and the city of Harrisburg for past fines not paid.
