Q:these anons are like, "can i be racist in the rain? can i be racist on a train? can i be racist in a box? can i be racist with a fox?"
How can I be racist if I work with blacks
How can I be racist if one sold me slacks
I’m not racist I’m just like you. I’m best friends with a black or two.
i’m not racist, you see, it’s just a preference
i love eastern culture and its women’s deference
the west lost its way with no room for clemency
If I love Asian women, how’s that white supremacy?
i’m not a racist, i can’t be, you see
my great grandma’s grandma was part cherokee
plus one time i got called “cracker” to my face
don’t we all bleed red? i don’t even see race…
I’m not racist, blacks just need to stop complaining
Living in the past and white people blaming
I work hard, no handouts for every little fraction
If white privilege isn’t fair, then how is affirmative action?
I’m not racist man, I’m just right-wing
Plus reverse-racism is totally a thing
It’s not about power check the definition
Slavery wasn’t an evil thing, just asset acquisition.
How come I can’t say “nigga”, it just means brotha!
And ain’t I a brotha from anotha motha?
I didn’t use the ‘er’- so its a total difference.
You blacks give good white people such hindrance :(
'We can't handle spicy foods' ? Your jokes make me sad
See, if I joked and called you a “nigger”, you’ll be mad
You black people think we are always out here to ruin your day
Look, 'not all white people', …mmkay?
I can say “nigga” ‘cause of freedom of speech
And y’all always forget what MLK preached!
White privilege ain’t real ‘cause my life is hard
If you want to stop racists, don’t play the race card
This is the greatest post I’ve ever read.
I’m torn on Rob Ford’s decision to withdraw from the Toronto mayoral race. Not because I like Rob Ford, he’s a world class asshole. But because I would’ve rather seen him get his political comeuppance.
Rob Ford will forever spin his loss as a technicality. An asterisk. But prevailing wisdom knows otherwise.
I am also excited that his nephew Michael (aka The Placeholder) is out of the running in Ward 2. This kid is inexperienced, hasn’t released his platform or done any debates. His candidacy was the very definition of nepotism.
BUT WAIT, THERE’S MORE
So the switcheroo now taking place goes like this:
1. Rob Ford. Out as running for mayor, now running as councillor against Andray Domise for his old Ward 2 seat.
2. Doug Ford. Now running for mayor. Even though he REALLY wanted to get out of politics.
3. Michael Ford. Out of the running in Ward 2 and back to getting rejected by girls on Tinder.
All of the above depends on whether or not the Ford cabal files the correct papers by 2pm today.
So yeah, RoFaux clearly thinks that being a councillor is more easy street. Which is good for him but bad for any Ward 2 voter who wants actual results.
Doug Ford for mayor? The Ford litmus test that proves that their bad attitude is bred in bone as opposed to chemically enhanced? Yeah, I don’t think even the dumbest Torontonian is that imbecilic to throw away a vote.
Again, to be clear, I wish Rob Ford a full recovery but fuck him. Fuck that whole family. And I mean that in the nicest way possible.

I think it’s telling that folks are more likely to circulate images of the BPP holding guns than they are of them passing out food. Even folks who supposedly support/ed the party. Guns are sexy and ~political~and virulent and masculine—groceries bags of food—that’s not what revolution is about. Except, that’s exactly what revolution is about.
this is why, this is why the government destroyed the BPP, because they were winning the hearts and minds of the people, and most importantly the YOUTH..
Fact: the Black Panthers invented free school breakfast programs.

It is even more powerful and encouraging that Tameka Lawson resides IN the community and works with the community. Rather than the community being rescued from an outside force.
Respectability politics are a flaccid and impotent tool when combatting racism.
The idea that one should pull up their pants, turn down their music, answer politely and make no sudden movements to avoid being oppressed has proven itself time and again to be inconsequential.
Black and other POCs are being judged and sentenced in the streets. Even white spree killers - the ones who don’t commit suicide - make it to jail.
And remember, when we all wore suits and ties we we being lynched by the hundreds.
So keep your respectability politics, I’ll keep my dignity.
Last weekend, a caller named “Josie” called into Dana Loesch’s radio show claiming she knew the real story of Michael Brown’s shooting because Darren Wilson had told her. The story spread like wildfire through The Blaze, Breitbart.com, Drudge, and more. Then it shot right into mainstream media with CNN jumping on it too.
Just to make sure it caught fire, Loesch appeared on Fox News to defend Josie’s account of the killing.
The story was exactly what you would expect it to be. Michael Brown was the aggressor; Wilson was the victim. Brown rushed Wilson and he had no choice but to shoot. And so on.
Bruh. Shit’s about to get even more real!!!
