Let it be said, they are all some lying bitches with no shame.

Many people of color are constantly trying to get white people to empathize with what it means to be on the wrong side of the White Supremacy power structure (and by that I don’t mean KKK or neo-Nazi types).
White people weren’t lynched for the fun of it or for reasons as irrational as a Black man happened to look too long at a White woman or didn’t get out of the way fast enough when White people walked by or didn’t sell their land as chicken shit prices.
Look at the post-lynching photo below.
Look at the cross-section of whites in attendance, and look at the expressions on their faces. Some people are smiling; smiling for the camera when (or rather because) two niggers are dead.
Black people never committed this kind of community-rejoicing violence against whites -/ with the underlying reasoning behind being, “well, it’s a nigger.” White people of the era didn’t treat dogs this bad. And while that “era” is gone, it’s vey difficult to erase this communal mindset and way of perceiving Black — that we can string the up like dogs. And the fear that lynching instilled in Black people all across the nation extended far beyond the end of Jim Crow (that’s part of Trickle Down Slave Theory).
As far as I know, cities and townships and parishes not once broke off the relatives of Negroes who were lynched compensation for the lose of life and the pain & suffering the family experienced. Have any of these lynching zones even expressed apologies to the families and descendants?

The true bold face of White Privelege is put on full display by these mid-century marketing tools.
In don’t know of any “No Whites Allowed” signs, and one were put up during the heyday of this bullshit, Whites would roll up into those places and kick some ass for even thinking they could prevent Whites from taking what they damn well please.
By and large White people don’t identify with any kind of ethnic group, so asking them to do so is pretty much incongruent with their thought patterns
Today the presidential candidates reported how much money they’ve raised, but more importantly how much money their Super-PACs have raised.
Jeb Bush’s $103 million raised by his Super-PAC is squarely a result of the Citizens United Supreme Court case.
NPR indicated that Bush’s war chest is greater that the entire field, at this same point in time, of the 2012 election campaign. This clearly indicates that GOP donors see Jeb as the frontrunner to rally against Hillary Clinton. I find it funny that Bush claims he hasn’t been anointed — actions speak louder than words, right?!?!
What I find most interesting is that Bernie Sanders is a man of his word and he’s not enlisting a SuperPAC or taking any money from these plutocrats. NPR was estimating that, due to Citizens United, certain donors will be writing million dollar checks ($10m was what they said, but that seems outrageous to me… but I’ll happily be wrong on this one, and be crying about it, because our “democracy” is for shit because of this).
The United States and several other nations are negotiated with The Islamic Republic of Iran to limit or put an end to Iran’s path to obtaining a nuclear weapon. President Barack Obama — as HEAD OF STATE — has been negotiating for the US (using Secretary of State John Kerry as his proxy). However, 47 GOP Congressmen led by freshman Senator Tom Cotton of Arkansas have independently issued a letter to Iran stating that the deal might only stand for as long as Obama is in office (i.e. less 2 years!)… if the GOP don’t like it!
Since the founding of the United States Congress has never so blatantly and openly undermined the President in foreign affairs! The problem with Tommy Boy Cotton is that he, to quote Jennifer Steinhauer of the NYTimes, “Mr. Cotton personifies a wave of Republican newcomers to the Senate who back a hawkish, interventionist foreign policy.” It’s like these fuq-tards want to seriously be able to threaten ANOTHER ground war in Central Asia.
The House of Representatives already showed the pink of their asses by inviting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu to address both houses of congress as snub of Obama and the entire diplomacy process. All Bibi did was froth at the mouth, he knows damn well that if Israel’s borders are breached by troops or fighter planes or missiles, they’re launching their own nukes.
But you wanna know why they feel they can act this way? Because most of them were born and breed in an era when advertising such as this Maxwell House coffee ad which depicted African-Americans as subhuman mutts whose only desire was to serve white people.
See, when you’re a kid and you see niggers portrayed in such a way, you can’t really get that washed out of your system. And this is where the continued disrespect of Obama originates. Black men were viewed as subhuman servants who can’t even talk correct English, whose role is to serve, not lead (and especially not lead the Nation or the “Free World”).
Okay, so you might say, “wait a minute, Senator Cotton wasn’t born in the 50s!” You’re quite right, but the long-term members of the GOP from both house of Congress were, and they’ve established an “let’s undermine Blackie McBlackman” the second he took the oath of office.
And now, here we are six years into the Obama Administration, and there’s been a chronic and unprecedented levels of fuck the highest office in the land ’cause a nigger holds it that even chump-ass young guys like Senator Tommy Boy Cotton finds it to be almost a natural reflex to shit on Obama. Also, Tommy Boy Cotton is from Arkansas, which is a former Confederate state where you know all people of power are dyed-in-the-wool components of the Anti-Nigger Machine.
The sad thing about the GOP is, if Hilary Clinton runs for President and wins, then they’re going to be shitting down her throat, too. But in a different way, the way all them fucks is used to being cuttingly dismissive toward women.
So the Congress passed a funding resolution of $1.1 Trillion that keeps the government operating until next September… But part of that bill includes rollbacks to the Dodd/Frank financial reform act.
Specifically allowing for Wall Street investment banks to trade derivatives and have these trades federally insured; meaning that Wall Street can roll the dice, fuck up and then get a tax payer paid for bailout.
As Senator Elizabeth Warren excoriated, “The GOP can keep slipping grenades in to omnibus spending bills.” CitiBank lobbyists wrote the provision, so what does that tell you? That the GOP are some bitches!
The GOP-led House of Representatives passed this fucked-up bill – required to keep the government running – then left town so if the senate denied passing, the House wouldn’t be around to debate and re-pass the Senate-changed bill.
A New York State judge ruled that the morning after pill, known as Plan B, must be available with restriction.
TWO MORE gun-violence kill sprees in the last couple of days — the Thrill Kill Couple in Las Vegas and now this morning another white male teen “who can’t take it anymore” bucks down his fellow kids at a high school in Troutdale, Oregon (I’m not going to name any of these chumps).
At this point, I’m practically numb to “breaking news story” of Suicide By Gun Rampage… after the Newtown Shootings in December of 2012, you have thought there would be some tightening and more stringent reinforcement of gun control laws (particularly for registered mentally ill individuals), but NOPE!
Any politician who gets up on the mic and laments these kills is sick, duplicitous jackass, but NOT ONE OF THEM is really trying to do something about gun violence in America. Because they can’t, America is a Gun Culture (matched by the likes of The Philippines).
The NRA has won the propaganda war and offered unconditional surrender terms to the gun control advocates, who have capitulated completely.
I’m not going to hold my breath until the next Suicide By Gun Rampage rolls across the CNN news ticker.
See you at the Gun Show this weekend!
Comedian John Oliver dropped a mega-rant against the Federal Communication Commission (FCC) getting ready to show its ass, and bow to corporate pressure to abrogated Net Neutrality.
Check it out here:
Apparently, Oliver’s encouraging words for his audience to add comments to the FCC’s website, broke the website.
How’s that for populism?
