Stockton, California: Police attack BBQ and speak-out sponsored by parents of police brutality victims, April 14, 2014.

"Pigs at BBQ, vamping on kids and throwing free speech out the window. They tried to kettle us & prevent us from leaving the park in any direction. The youth finally found a way, and had the pigs running back and forth as the youth kept outsmarting them! Power to the people!"

Holy. Fucking. Shit.

after hearing about it through the submission to @angryasiangirlsunited, i checked out the trailer of Lucy and am even more disgusted. and so not surprised. whiteness is getting too old.


the upcoming movie lucy will feature the age-old racist narrative of pure white woman (scarlet johansson) being violated by scary, brown men. and the new white feminist trope of women gaining their power by violently eliminating brown men. who needs the white male savior when we now have white female saviors, taking it into their own hands to save their whiteness from all that non-whiteness. so radical.



My favorite part are the white feminists who are raving about this movie because “strong independent woman yaaaas!!”

i’m just wondering why there are herbs and fruits and vegetables written in a faded, creepy red on a prison-like wall in chinese.  are herbs and fruits and vegetables in chinese supposed to be part of some sort of scare tactics?  or am i missing something here?

HAHAHAHAHA

The above makes this so much better

OMG THIS MOVIE IS BULLSHIT OF THE HIGHEST ORDER THEY COULDN’T EVEN BOTHER TO GET SOMEONE TO WRITE ACCURATE SHIT IN CHINESE ON THE WALL THEY PROBABLY GOOGLED A TAKE-OUT MENU OR SOMETHING THIS IS WHAT A $20MIL BUDGET BUYS IN HOLLYWHITE EVERYONE! 

I just asked a family member to translate this. They came back with “Keep Clean. Apple, scallop & ginger, orange, tomato, grape”

WHO IS SURPRISED

lolsob

Anonymous asked: I don't think you understand libertarianism. Libertarians by definition cannot be racist because racism is putting individuals in collective groups whereas libertarians can only view people as individuals. A racist libertarian is an oxymoron.

caviling:

yoisthisracist:

Hahaha “libertarians can only view people as individuals” hahahahaha, oh, go fuck yourself. You seriously think you can hide behind that bullshit? Guess what, you fuckface, your bankrupt and hilarious philosophy might call for all kinds of bullshit, but NO ONE IS FOOLED by the fact that all your ideas about economics and government just so happen to benefit one group of people more than others.

Look, if you love freedom and no government so much, there are any number of failed states you can move to to have your libertarian paradise. You know why you don’t do that? Because your bullshit theories only work for you when you’re already in a place that inherently favors your group over others. If you aren’t already in first place, with centuries of social and cultural mechanisms in place to keep you there, not so appealing huh.

So, nice try, but not only is “racist libertarian” not an oxymoron, it’s redundant. Get the fuck out of here with that bullshit, you fucking shithead.

Possibly my favorite yoisthisracist answer to date? Very possibly.

Excellent.

GA officers pulled a gun on an 11-year-old building a treehouse.

rafi-dangelo:

Omari Grant and his friends were attempting to build a treehouse when a neighbor called the cops.  The police then pulled guns on the kids and forced them face down on the ground.

And I absolutely believe every word of this story because A) Cops ain’t shit and B) Black boys are never seen as innocent little children in this country

I don’t like this expression “First World problems.” It is false and it is condescending. Yes, Nigerians struggle with floods or infant mortality. But these same Nigerians also deal with mundane and seemingly luxurious hassles. Connectivity issues on your BlackBerry, cost of car repair, how to sync your iPad, what brand of noodles to buy: Third World problems. All the silly stuff of life doesn’t disappear just because you’re black and live in a poorer country. People in the richer nations need a more robust sense of the lives being lived in the darker nations. Here’s a First World problem: the inability to see that others are as fully complex and as keen on technology and pleasure as you are.

One event that illustrated the gap between the Africa of conjecture and the real Africa was the BlackBerry outage of a few weeks ago. Who would have thought Research In Motion’s technical issues would cause so much annoyance and inconvenience in a place like Lagos? But of course it did, because people don’t wake up with “poor African” pasted on their foreheads. They live as citizens of the modern world. None of this is to deny the existence of social stratification and elite structures here. There are lifestyles of the rich and famous, sure. But the interesting thing about modern technology is how socially mobile it is—quite literally. Everyone in Lagos has a phone.
