My house is strange. There’s me, i’m bisexual, and I live with my gay brother and my asexual fiance.
My brother and I have the same taste in boys, but i’m really the only one who likes girls, and my fiance is generally just really excited about dragons.
Dude I want this sitcom
is generally just really excited about dragons
Love “Da Man Wit the Chips” but Jameila White is the new “Protest MVP.” #staywoke #trill
Ratchet is a racialized term. So is ghetto. So is thug. So is welfare queen. Someone does not have to EXPLICITLY say the word “black” in order for something to be racist against black people. Speaking in flagrantly racist terms is one of the least sophisticated manifestations of racism today.
oooo Apparently I’m racist! Sorry every group other than white people…
We can’t be friends now. Tumblr says I’m a bad person because at one point I said the word ratchet. Also who says, “Welfare Queen”?
My disdain for most people knows no color, gender, or creed. That said congrats about complaining about something on Tumblr, playing victim, and getting lots of reblogs. YOU’RE CHANGING THE WORLD Y’ALL!!!
Love yo faces :) Except white people. Fuck those honkies… AMIRITE?!
One of the most sinister things about normalized racism is you don’t have to have bad intentions to be racist, you just have to remain ignorant. Here Philip DeFranco is doing that in strides.
Instead of taking some well-placed criticism he (you Phil, I’m talking directly to you) is being a dismissive dipshit. Good job re-affirming the critique in that apparently he is so convinced of his own colorblindness that he can’t even see his own flagrant racism.
His response is an attempt to minimize his mistake (the hyperbolic false apology), to create a stawman — "Tumblr says I’m a bad person because at one point I said the word ratchet" — so he doesn’t have to take responsibility of having used racialized language, and at all times never having to look inward at himself at his own racism.
He then tries to socialize his backwardness — “My disdain for most people knows no color, gender, or creed.” — as if equally being a bigot solves being a bigot at all.
The last part is the cherry on the cake, where he insults the rest of us by assuming we are not only doing the work of educating (through social media) in our private lives, but he again, being a dismissive dipshit, assumes we are not also the foot-soldiers making-by-living the change of creating a better world.
It would be hard to find a more obvious example of a less self-inflated white guy getting called out for having an overly inaccurate, generous view of himself, then telling everybody else we’re stupid not to see his awesomeness.
Sorry Phil, you are just another white guy who refuses to see his privilege. There’s a reason you’re popular.(via america-wakiewakie)

Police had been responding to a “disturbance” near the University of Tennessee when a house party estimated to be composed of 800+ individuals spilled out onto the street. Deputy Brandon Gilliam wrote in the report that when detaining Dotson, he “began to physically resist officers’ instructions to place his hands behind his back, and at one point grabbed on to an officer’s leg.” At some point, Deputy Phillips felt the need to begin choking Dotson to the point where he passed out — lethal force by any definition.
The deputy who assaulted the student was fired and the deputies who stood by were suspended. As it should be.
This dude made a rookie mistake. You never assault the rich white kids, they’re the only ones the system cares about after all.
