Hey you, yes you !!
Hey you, yes you !!
This was bad enough as an instance of conservative recklessness when Bundy was just a lawless rancher backed by armed militamen. It’s even worse now that we know that Bundy is full of racist bones. Here’s he is, as quoted by the New York Times, speaking to a public gathering of supporters:“I want to tell you one more thing I know about the Negro,” he said. Mr. Bundy recalled driving past a public-housing project in North Las Vegas, “and in front of that government house the door was usually open and the older people and the kids — and there is always at least a half a dozen people sitting on the porch — they didn’t have nothing to do. They didn’t have nothing for their kids to do. They didn’t have nothing for their young girls to do.“And because they were basically on government subsidy, so now what do they do?” he asked. “They abort their young children, they put their young men in jail, because they never learned how to pick cotton. And I’ve often wondered, are they better off as slaves, picking cotton and having a family life and doing things, or are they better off under government subsidy? They didn’t get no more freedom. They got less freedom.”
In other words, the real problem with African-Americans today is that they’re addicted to welfare and unwilling to work. Sure, slavery wasn’t ideal, but at least the Negroes had skills (cotton picking!), work, and family. (source)
Does this idiot realize how stifling government subsidies are though ? That many of them curtail your ability to climb up socioeconomically ? That if you make a dollar more than what is suggested your benefits get cut ? That if you are a full time college student your food stamps can get cut? That many people on welfare and foodstamps actually work ? That most of them are White ? Does he realize that us Descendents of dark skinned kidnapping victims/ Negroes/Coloreds/Afro-Americans/Africans Americans/Blacks don’t all reside in some crusty ass housing project ? That we aren’t a monolith ?!
CTRON, there are days I am all about you. That ridiculous monolith - The Negro. One convenient prototype for this asshat. First, he is illiterate and second, if he was not so pathetic, he would be laughable. Fortunately, he has one foot on a banana peel by the looks of him. Sorrynotevenvaguelysorry.
And the entire time I am reading this post I am thinking: this is what the Republican Party is pandering to these days! How do You like your good ole US of A folks?
Yup. My caveat emptor is that I am not an American so in many ways this is a voyeuristic pursuit. Still, as a rep of the Republican party, this is nonsense. Do they not look at statistics? Do they not see the volumetrics of the demo shift? Whom are their supporters long term based on the growth and shift in demo? Are they so pressed that they do not realize they need to update and be inclusive because as a group they are dying in relevance? These are the death crys. Unless they grow up, they are done. These patented statements that hold no water will not serve them. Nature has time, people like him, do not. He is an idiot, as are all those relying on these outdated precepts.
I think their goal is to severely limit the number of people who can vote and make it increasingly difficult for those who can. I was reading Justice Sotomayer’s opinion the other day and it touched on this very issue when she wrote about states back in the 20s and beyond changed voting laws to keep people of color from participating in the political process.
The plan is to rig the system.
If you don’t like the outcome, change the rules. You would think the lesson would be to learn to be a better player. Nope, change the rules so only the people you want to win succeed.
CRINE. Werk boo
An average day’s worth of straight men in Amiyah Scott’s mentions. It’s one thing to dislike someone and to talk about them, but to go into their mentions?
This is so terrifying
This isn’t about disliking someone, this is transmisogyny, transmisogynoir, transophobia. This is hatred, in the strongest form. All these folks in her mentions can burn in a fire, get hit by a bus, whatever they aren’t deemed worth living to me. This is how unsafe Black Transwomen are, they can’t even exist in the comfort of their own space at home, on the internet without threats of violence, this horrific, and disgusting.
and what makes me so mad, and what’s an attitude that really needs to be fucking addressed in our community, is that so many of these men are threatening violence against her because they believe she’s trying to trick them. like this is how the media fucks with our perceptions because trans women have always been set up as a ‘trap’ to threaten the sexuality of the hetero-hypermale. they are operating within the myth that a) black women’s bodies automatically belong to black men for the pursuit of their pleasure and b) trans women’s bodies are ‘false’ and ‘deceitful’ female bodies, and by merely existing they are a threat to male heterosexuality.
trans women’s bodies are women’s bodies. women’s bodies belong to themselves. the world does not revolve around your shriveled ego and the satisfaction of your tragic libido.
^^ yes that. They’re attracted to them and their scared of it so they hate them.
^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^ x 1000
They are attracted to her, but she was born a man. So now they are pissed off that they are questioning their own sexuality, but directing that anger towards her.
"HOW DARE YOU, A TRANS WOMAN, MAKE ME HORNY!?"
Them niggas must be closeted to be so angry.
Dear Lord smh
Oh bless her

No matter how hard you may try to forget, this is still a 2014 Disney Channel show.
In response to a string of recent break-ins, the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan has given a local Pennsylvania chapter the go-ahead to form a neighborhood watch group. You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!&r…
