Defunding the police isn’t about anarchy: it’s about justice and harm reduction. Cops are much more likely to be domestic abusers. They don’t do shit about sexual assault cases. Their unions refuse any sort of meaningful oversight and consequences for egregious professional behavior and they actively pass around bad Read more

Police are rolling up on peaceful protests with tear gas. How aren’t they the enemy? And while protesters aren’t calling for anarchy, how is anarchy bad? Read more

This was one of the best calls I’ve heard. So glad I got to hear more about this hero! I almost felt sorry for them getting the aggressive calls. But then I remembered the 600 people killed without accountability and now trying to re-enact 1960s Selma, Alabama.

It was a brilliant speed driven declaration of filth and fury.   Loved it.

This old interview where she waxes poetic about living in a trailer park, being poor she couldn’t afford cereal, and “trying to survive on the street” made me fucking scream. Like, woman...we all have Google and know who your daddy is. Who the fuck do you think you’re kidding?

She really did not need to name these people  in her little rant. She should just focus on her music instead of this “it’s not fair! why do they get to sing about sex and I just want to sing about lexapro and I get criticized” As if all of those women don’t get criticized for the content of their music too.

People are confusing “didn’t stop to think about whether or not is was wrong” and “didn’t know it was wrong.” The only reason they could be confused on the issue of blackface is because it didn’t matter to them. White supremacy doesn’t require animus, it just requires constant elevating of themselves (doing it for Read more

No. She is white. White hispanics are real. You don’t get to claim to be a person of color and also be a blonde white woman who has a hispanic sounding last name and maybe speaks Spanish. Passing privilege is one thing, but it is an entirely different if you’re just a fucking fancy white person. FFS next we’ll have Read more

I love that the top comment is a white woman passing this over because she, personally, is tired of it. Because she totally speaks for the black people who’re tired of white people acting like this shit is okay and just in the past. FFS I’m so sick of white people acting like they’re our allies and friends when they Read more

I understand what you are saying. You are just wrong though. EVERYONE knew that all kinds of blackface were considered wrong. They just didn’t care because they thought black people were being overly sensitive and “PC Culture run amuck!” Read more

The hell are you talking about? Are we judging friends and family? (edit: I might have introduced this misunderstanding with my previous example. I was talking about the mechanics of how intent doesn’t make a similar outcome better, but I shouldn’t have used a family example, I muddled the issue). Read more
