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.

He Was Raised By A White Mom And Didn't Think The Cops Were Out To Get Him. Until They Got Him.

I heard his story on NPR. His mom raised him to “not see color” etc. And the cops beat  the hell out of him when they pulled him over. It took seeing him in jail beaten half to death for her to see that race matters every day.

Please note: “everyone who works retail, admin, or labor” is pretty much everyone. I can’t remember the last time I worked somewhere without “security” cameras that monitored employees.

You can’t work fast food without being monitored on the job. Seriously, guys, wake up.

“It’s very easy for Women Against Feminism to declare that they don’t need feminism using the voice and powers that feminism made possible and which it continues to fight for.”

Anonymous said: The 2nd Amendment is sacred - SACRED - inviolable, and immutable, as the Founders intended, when it was tacked on as an afterthought to the original constitution (seriously, it's an AMEND-ment). Somewhat less so are the 1st (assembly, speech, and press subclauses), 4th (search & seizure), 5th (due process), 6th (right to trial) 8th (excessive bail, cruel & unusual punishment) 14th, & 15th (equal rights & access to the franchise regardless of race). Still got guns though. Lots of guns.

yoisthisracist:

Much guns.
