Anonymous asked: What would the world be like if white people cared about racial inequality even 10% as much as they cared about Game of Thrones?
Oddly, in that world, we probably wouldn’t have a white-ass show like Game of Thrones to measure against.
This is why I fucks with you Yvette. (x)
For extra win, here’s her response to random disgruntled white woman #52:
“It’s 2014, not 1960 get over it already.” -#52
“What horrible price are white people currently paying Melissa Hammersley? Are their wages or chance of career advancement affected? Do their children lack opportunities? Is it impossible for them to get a fair trial or equal jail time for the same crime? What has been SO hard for white people since Slavery times that black folks should allow them the right to use the N-word freely? I’m baffled.
I’m sorry you, in particular, are struggling so hard with the idea that its use is NEVER acceptable by caucasians in particular but I have now completely tired of your contributions on this topic on MY page. Feel free to continue raging against the unjust treatment of blacks towards whites and the “get over it-ness” of it all on YOUR page. God bless.” - Yvette
Anonymous asked: Is it racist to suggest that race was a factor in that kid from Ghana getting accepted into all 8 Ivy League schools? Because seriously, with affirmative action these days, does this not give black people like him a leg up over whites? Is that not a simple fact that he had an advantage over white kids with equivalent qualifications? Given this, isn't the REAL racism against white people, especially those white kids who got rejected over him?
Dear Racists: I usually don’t like to answer when you write in with a cavalcade of lies, because just saying “no” over and over again to your bullshit can sometimes give the appearance that you have a point, or that people who aren’t racist are being defensive.
But sometimes, when real pieces of shit like you write in, I don’t know, it’s just fun. So guess what, you racist asshole, even taking your account of how affirmative action works (which is, like everything else you’re saying, a lie), isn’t it kind of pathetic that you can really only ever come up with this one example of how white people are allegedly discriminated against? Like, you’ll conveniently ignore, say, legacy admissions from institutions with a proud legacy of having been white only schools, or the fact that even well meaning teachers unconsciously favor white students, to just rail at “affirmative action.”
Well guess what, you shithead, your only trump card is completely bankrupt, you’re a racist piece of shit, and I’m sorry you were too stupid to get into one of these schools, trust me, you wouldn’t have hacked it there anyway (not that that shit is all that).
PS. Seriously, I’m sorry you’re so stupid, but go fuck yourself, seriously.
As Jackson couldn’t fluently play any instruments, he would sing and beatbox out how he wanted his songs to sound by himself on tape, layering the vocals, harmonies and rhythm before having instrumentalists come in to complete the songs.
One of his engineers Robmix on how Jackson worked: “One morning MJ came in with a new song he had written overnight. We called in a guitar player, and Michael sang every note of every chord to him. “here’s the first chord first note, second note, third note. Here’s the second chord first note, second note, third note”, etc., etc. We then witnessed him giving the most heartfelt and profound vocal performance, live in the control room through an SM57. He would sing us an entire string arrangement, every part. Steve Porcaro once told me he witnessed MJ doing that with the string section in the room. Had it all in his head, harmony and everything. Not just little eight bar loop ideas. he would actually sing the entire arrangement into a micro-cassette recorder complete with stops and fills.”
Reasons why I laugh when people say he wasn’t a real musician.
Florida’s second sensational, race-tinged murder trial in less than a year is underway. Michael Dunn, a white, 47-year-old software developer, shot and killed Jordan Davis, a 17-year-old African American, as the teen sat in an SUV with three friends. Charged with first-degree murder, Dunn is pleading self-defense under Florida’s controversial Stand Your Ground law. He contends that he argued with the teens (over what a witness says he called their “thug music”) and fired on them after he claims he saw Davis brandish a shotgun. Police found no gun at the scene, and witnesses say Davis never had one.
Like the George Zimmerman trial, during which the self-styled neighborhood watchman successfully argued that he shot and killed Trayvon Martin, an unarmed black teenager, in self-defense, Dunn’s case has raised questions about Florida’s broad self-defense law, racial profiling, and how the two issues intersect. Would Martin and Davis be alive if they weren’t black? Would they have been afforded the benefit of the doubt by their killers if they had been white? Their deaths didn’t happen in a vacuum. There’s evidence that just being black in the United States is often all it takes to arouse suspicion. Here are 21 examples from the last five years of some of the things black people can’t do without others thinking they’re up to no good.

2. Walk home from a snack run to 7-11.
3. Wear a hoodie.
5. Drive in a car with a white girl.
7. Walk on the wrong side of the street.
8. Wait for a school bus to take you to your high school basketball game.
9. Drink iced tea in a parking lot.
11. Inspect your own property.
12. Show up at your job.
13. Talk trash after an NFL game.
14. Throw a temper tantrum in kindergarten.
16. Buy designer accessories at Macy’s.
17. Be a 13-year-old boy.
18. Enter your own home.
20. Be a tourist.
21. Lay face down in handcuffs.
