An officer kills an elk and is charged with felonies, kicked of the force, shamed by community, and ultimately given 4 years of probation.
Meanwhile, Darren Wilson, who murdered Mike Brown, an unarmed black teen, has still not been charged with a crime. Darren has not only been protected by his community and the police force, but he has received a massive amount of support from people all across the United States.
Wait, so cops manage to bring in convicted mass murderer (and armed) TJ Lane unharmed and alive after he escapes from jail, but an unarmed Mike Brown gets shot while surrendering because the cop was supposedly afraid?
When you wait until the end of an article to mention that the “black dude with a sword shot by the police” was cosplaying, you’re creating a situation where you want the readers to side with the police
you want them to infer a threat. you want them to think “yeah, someone walking down the street with a sword is a danger, sure the cops shot him but…it probably had nothing to do with him being black”
dude was cosplaying for an anime convention. dude’s back was turned.
We can’t even fucking cosplay without being killed by police.
Here’s a sure-fire way to know that you hate women: when an incident of intimate partner violence in which a man knocks a woman unconscious gains national attention and every question or comment you think to make has to do with her behavior, you really hate women. Like, despise.
There is no other explanation. There is no “I need all the facts.” There is no excuse. You hate women. Own it.
Now, you probably don’t believe you hate women. You probably honestly think you’re being an objective observer whose only interest is the truth. You are delusional.
We have this problem in our discourse around the most important challenges we face where we feel we have to be “fair to both sides.” But sometimes, one of those sides is subjugation and oppression. If you’re OK with legitimizing that side in the interest of “fairness,” you’re essentially saying you’re OK with oppression as a part of the human condition. That’s some hateful shit.
When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation.
But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him.
Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.
#I hate sean but this was so good SAME. How Sean is the front runner is beyond me. Team Kini all the way.
RIGHT. so tbh i’ve been marathoning a lot of old seasons of project runway and its really really obvious how much white men are privileged even in women’s fashion design. like idk why i thought the world of project runway would be any different but they seriously get by on such little shit while white women and designers of color— particularly women of color— get totally fucking thrown away. IT’S SO INFURIATING. but yah sean is just some boring pretty white boy so he’s gonna go far in project runway and in life on mediocrity.
yes i am so into kini and also sandhya. like even tho her designs haven’t been that great lately she’s been a badass since the beginning.
the united states of america is fucking horrific and repulsive and people have every right to shit talk it but leave fat people out of it and stop acting like having fat people makes the usa a bad place, when you could focus on idk literally everything else
