In a post-Ferguson world, Americans increasingly doubt the notion of colorblind justice.

HOW THE FUCK DID THE PERCENTAGE GO UP FOR WHITE PEOPLE

IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES A POLICE OFFICER SHOOTING AN UNARMED BLACK KID (AND THEN ATTEMPTING TO COVER IT UP AFTER THE FACT) CONSTITUTE EQUAL TREATMENT IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM

LIKE WHO LOOKS AT THAT AND GOES “WELL, BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS RACISM IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND NOW I SEE THAT IT’S PERFECTLY EQUAL”

WHAT THE FUCK

This increase can be explained by an interesting social phenomenon called ‘denial.’

They benefit from not knowing.. and from believing in myths. 

Comparing beliefs before and after Michael Brown’s murder and the surrounding revelations of racism that have sprung out of it, white people, as a demographic believe, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, that the criminal justice system treats whites and blacks equally.

That is, MORE white people believe the criminal justice system treats black equally now than they did before Michael Brown’s death.

In essence, for white people, blatant systemic oppression and the murder of an unarmed young black man gives them even more reason to believe blacks are treated fairly by the system.

This confirms an earlier study that said the more you tell white people that the system is inherently racist, the more they supported harsher punishments for black people: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/07/3468368/study-white-people-support-harsher-criminal-laws-if-they-think-more-black-people-are-arrested/

Marinate on these inhumanities for a second.

the more I have to deal with men, the more I find myself hating them.

You just seem really angry….

hell yeah I’m angry why shouldn’t I be??
I’m angry because “I wanna see your boobs” is a completely inappropriate way to speak to someone you don’t fucking know??? in what fucking universe should I respond in any way other than outrage? I don’t exist to please men or other people and being treated like I do is dehumanizing and fucking aggravating. 
so once again
why the fuck should I not be fucking angry?  

yes ok sure but isn’t telling people to die a little inappropriate too??

Jesus Christ, he didn’t threaten you or even use profanity. He just asked to see your boobs, calm down.

I will not calm down, that’s called sexual harassment and it is a completely inappropriate way to talk to another human being, fuck you.

I think if more women react with this kind of outright disgust and vitriol to men being disgusting than we would see less men doing this.

Not that it’s our responsibility to change men’s minds. But this could help.

Agree. Reacting calmly says to them “this is no big deal”. Reacting angrily shows them it’s not. If they choose to write us off as crazy bitches, they are being willful misogynist pigs.

Yo, the reactions on some “WHY ARE YOU SO MAD” and “YOU’RE OVERREACTING” are actually big signs.

ALI SHAHEED MUHAMMAD: Your cadence and flows — you move around, you go in between a rhythm, so that’s why I was curious about your approach in putting together songs. But, speaking of merging genres — cause that’s how I take it — how important is that as, you know, coming from representing Atlanta hip-hop, and putting a stamp on it but then moving beyond that label.

ANDRE 3000: I think — here’s my thing about representing a place: The best way to represent the places where you from is be yourself, completely. And just say, “I’m from this place.” It doesn’t mean I have to cater to that place, you know, cause my thing is taking the city on its back and going beyond. It’s not staying in — just in — the city sound. My thing is just pushing it as much as I can cause that’s how — that’s what gets me off. That’s what I do.

But when you listen to Atlanta music now, you listen to trap music — we didn’t necessarily come from that, but I love that kind of music. It’s funny people say outkast has this Atlanta, Southern sound. I honestly don’t think we ever had an Atlanta sound. I think our accents were from the South. People knew we were from the South. But I can’t say that we just had a Atlanta sound, you know what I mean? I think ours was just all over the place. It was kinda like a hodge-podge of whatever we were into.

Fox 8 Cleveland angry with LKWD Music Fest after Communist musician calls for end to capitalism on live TV

FOX is tiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiight

FOX News: “Well, Boots, tell us a little bit about your band and the lineup people are going to hear today?” asked Fox 8 reporter Autumn Ziemba.

RILEY: Well, we’re a punk/funk/Communist revolution band.

FOX News: OK.

RILEY: And we are from Oakland, California, and we make everyone dance while we’re telling them about how we need to get rid of the system.

FOX News: Mmm.

RILEY: How exploitation is the primary contradiction in capitalism. And that if we want to express our power, we’re going to have to be more radical in our actions.

this is an all-Black band, from Oakland, and they’re called "The Coup." *buys CD*

Watch Fox News lose control

Fox - incompetence to the maximum - I mean, The Coup has BEEN on the same TIP FOR YEARS.   Shit, if Common is a “gangster rapper” in their eyes, what did they think was gonna come out of Boots’ mouth?

Wait…someone’s SURPRISED Boots did this? Like my man bankuei said, The Coup has been around for years and has NEVER wavered in their stance. But Fox is all “OH NOES WHAT HATH YOU WROUGHT?” 

GTFOH.
