Quit posting absolute bullshit and get over the fact that a fucking criminal was put to rest that day. If he would have never stole from the store, he most likely wouldn't have had contact with police that day. If he would have never assaulted the officer and reached for his gun, he wouldn't have took a bullet to the skull. #justicehasbeenserved

cognitivedissonance:

Even if he stole Rellos, would he get the death penalty? No.

Even if he stole an officer’s gun, would he get the death penalty? No.

Even if he punched a cop, would he get the death penalty? No.

Never mind the end of that video shows Mike Brown paying for his Rellos.

Never mind the store owner said there was no robbery and that no one working for him reported it.

Never mind the police chief said Darren Wilson did not know Mike Brown was a “suspect” in a robbery — he was stopped for walking in the street versus on the sidewalk.

Never mind the autopsy report that says he was shot from nearly 35ft away.

Never mind that report shows wounds consistent with him being shot with his hands in the air.

Ultimately, you have one White cop who gunned down yet another unarmed Black man, a police force that has not been at all forthcoming with any answers, and a Black community tired of their children being murdered for shit as simple as walking down the street. That same police force (accompanied by National Guard and Missouri Highway Patrol) has used violence to try to quell peaceful protest.

When looting broke out, the people in that community banded together to PROTECT local businesses from the looters who looked a fuckton like your shitstain self.

Here’s a newsflash, cockwagon: If you stole Rellos, your ass might spend a few hours in a holding cell. You might stay overnight. But you’re never gonna be thought of as a suspect right off the bat by a cop when you’re just walking down the street with a pal. You’re never gonna have to worry if your hoodie makes you suspect. You’re never gonna have to wonder if a traffic stop is going to end in your murder.

And if you go all mass shooter on us, which White boys like yourself are wont to do, rest assured your legacy will be burnished with sympathetic interviews bemoaning how such a good boy went wrong. The media will not pour through your social media profiles looking for the most “thug” picture of you mean mugging for the camera. In fact, if you have a gun selfie on your Facebook, you’re just standing up for your Second Amendment rights. Of course you’re not a thug like THOSE people, amirite?

Also, you’ll be a hell of a lot more likely to be taken alive after committing mass murder than a young Black man who was simply suspect for walking down the street, or holding his wallet, or who fit the description — that catchall justification beloved by policemen everywhere. Or even a young Black woman seeking help after a car crash. If you pound on a stranger’s door, you’re getting a ambulance instead of a bullet in the face.

Take your impotent Wonderbread™ White supremacist opinions elsewhere, son, because I am fresh out of fucks to give and won’t be restocking any time soon.

P.S. Your wrong as fuck hashtag up there means as much as your opinions. I think you forgot how to internet.

So when Miley Cyrus or Katy Perry bring black girls on stage, dance with them, acknowledge their figures- it’s offensive and appropriating. But, when Nicki Minaj makes an entire video focusing around black girl’s asses and asserts her power, reduces these women to objects and flaunts her authority it’s YAAASSSSS NICKI SERVE IT. Is that because she’s black? So it’s okay for people of the same race to dance with each other but someone who does not share the same levels of melanin enters the picture, they’re doing something wrong? …idgi 

You’re completely ignoring context. In Lily Allen’s Hard out Here video, she literally says, “I don’t shake my ass cause I have a brain” as Black women shake their asses in her video. She is literally degrading the Black women who shake their asses in the media. The song also uses references to Black rappers (i.e. the title of the song referencing the rap song “Hard out Here for a Pimp” and her lyric “bragging ‘bout my cars or talking ‘bout my chains”), suggesting that Black rappers are more sexist than white male musicians (which isn’t true, there’s lots of sexism in all music genres) and also suggest the source of sexism in the music industry is Black people (Black male rappers and twerking Black female dancers).
In contrast, Nicki Minaj is reclaiming a song (Baby Got Back) that was made by a Black male rapper who celebrated (but also objectified) Black female bodies. Throughout her song, Nicki raps like a man would, talking about her sexual conquests with men and the size of their dicks, almost as a way of doing to men what they have done to women (objectifying their dicks as Sir Mix A Lot objectified Black women’s asses and many other men objectify women’s vaginas). She also brags about her sexual prowess and stays in control and aggressive in the video (she goes as far as cutting a banana representing a dick and slapping Drake’s hand away—the video critiques the male gaze). The target of mockery and disparagement in Nicki’s video is men and the male gaze, and the video works to reclaim agency from it.
In what way is Nicki asserting power over her dancers? In her video, she twerks along side her back up dancers and dances with them and interacts with them on the same level. She is just as scantily clad as they are. Lily Allen, however, stays fully covered in her video, does not dance provocatively, and thus contrasts her own pure and respectable femininity with the Black women, using their twerking and scantily clad bodies as an example of “bad” female sexuality and femininity—of women “objectifying themselves.” This is racist because it frames Black female sexuality as lesser than white femininity and antithetical to feminism.
In summary: Nicki’s video is very much a celebration of female Black beauty and sexuality coming from a Black woman. Conversely, Lilly Allen’s is using Black women as props to frame them as a vile or bad form of sexuality or being too sexual to prop up her own feminism.
So you might say, “what about Miley Cyrus? she twerks along side her Black background dancers too!” But here’s the problem: Miley Cyrus continually appropriates Black culture and also uses Black women as props. It does matter that these artists are white because in these cases the point of including the Black women is either to, in Lily Allen’s case, offset Black sexuality/femininity as too sexual or bad in comparison with her white femininity/feminism, or, in the case of Miley Cyrus, to get “street cred” and exotify her own sexuality by appropriating Black culture and using Black people as props to do so. See this analysis of Lily Allen’s Hard Out Here video and this analysis of Miley Cyrus by Black people who know a lot more about this than I do.
I haven’t seen anything about Katy Perry using Black dancers. I’ve just seen criticisms of her appropriating AAVE and other PoC cultures. I’m not sure why you brought her up, but maybe I just haven’t seen the videos in question.
Either way, it’s not like white artists having a diverse cast of back up dancers is a bad thing automatically. Here is an example of a white artist using back up dancers of other races without objectifying them: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8Ilh1ewceco (notice this artist tackles the same issue as Lily Allen—sexism/objectification in the media—without being misogynist and racist toward other women). But the examples of Lily Allen and Miley Cyrus ARE racist and Nicki Minaj’s video isn’t the same as theirs.

Police. Raided. A. Church.

apatosaurus:

The justification was a violation of housing policy in allowing people to sleep there. Because letting people sleep on the church floor (which the congregation says wasn’t happening) requires a police response involving assault rifles.

Have you ever slept on a church floor? I have. Lots of times. Interesting how the only time alleged floor sleeping leads to a militarized response is when the church is also LITERALLY FOLLOWING THE COMMANDS OF JESUS. Healing the sick. Comforting the afflicted. That sort of thing.

I didn’t think I could be more angry and sad. Why did I think that?

ETA: At least one news source is claiming that the tweets about this event were misinformed. The police didn’t “raid” the church. They just surrounded the church school building, which I’m sure was not at all meant to be threatening or intimidating to the people inside. I’m still furious.

every issue that you face as a white person, a person of color has to deal with

depression, abuse, rape, illness, sexism, homophobia, etc etc

everything that white people have to deal with people of color have to deal with as well

plus racism

this is it. this is the definition of white privilege. white people go through things, no one is denying that. but they will never know what it means to deal with all that, PLUS racism

Your bottled water habit is sucking California dry

If you’re reading this, chances are very high that your home has at least one — and maybe more! — magic appliance that produces clean water suitable for drinking. That’s one reason to avoid paying for bottled water.

Another reason? There’s a good chance the water you’re buying at the supermarket was bottled in California, a state currently enduring a severe drought.

Turn on the tap instead Follow micdotcom

EVERYONE PLEASE AT LEAST TAKE A QUICK SECOND TO LOOK AT THIS

BECAUSE IT IS EFFECTING THE EXACT AREA I LIVE IN

Lots of people believe bottled water is safer and cleaner than tap water, when in reality there’s no evidence proving such a thing.

Penn & Teller’s Bullshit!: Bottled Water segment, gives a very good and thorough summary of the bottled water culture https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MHx6BX3HZJc

You want better water? Buy a Zero filter. SRSLY. Stop buying bottled if possible. You need water with you? Get reusable acrylic or glass water bottles (wrapped in a silicon sleeve) and fill it up from your filter pitcher. SAVE MONEY, SAVE MY STATE

stop drinking bottled water, mother fuckers

The New Jim Crow
1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 67% of those residents are Black
2. The Ferguson police department has around 53 commisioned officers —3 of them are Black
3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson
4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime
5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police
7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent
8. This is Not the first time Ferguson’s police have been heavy handed with it’s Black residents  - Innocent Black man beaten by cops, then charged with bleeding on police officer’s uniforms
9. So please - don’t get it twisted

Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.
