Bureaucracy and Self-Preservation is why police respond to stupid calls. I’m Black and from Detroit where you have to say someone has a gun to get police response. My 4th day as a 911 Operator in small, working class white suburb, a woman calls the 911 line screaming and sobbing incoherently. I kept asking questions…
But 9 times out of ten, you’ll probably admit it’s somebody white curled up on upholstered furniture or appropriating up two or three chairs before everyone has a seat or taking their shoes off in public - not Black! (Unless it’s a bus or Subway train, then it’s Black dudes manspreading!).
I teach in a university. I don’t have a cell phone policy. Most of my students will, at some point during a lecture, check their phones/email.
Black people aren't prone to removing our shoes in public.
The only thing the professor is teaching people is that she is a racist dingbat who wastes resources and the town is hiring garbage like those cops who came to take her out of class.
But that’s an EMT course; which typically results in jobs or at least a certificate, and I imagine you have many interactive elements to said course.
Exactly. I used to get in trouble with this one teacher for doodling while I was in class. Mind you, I was taking notes, paying attention, and responding to class material while I was doodling. I just focus better when my hands are busy, and this teacher could not get that through his head. Dude, it’s not about you.…
Everyone’s here wondering if the student’s feet were dirty and/or ashy, while I’m still here wondering why the campus police didn’t tell the professor to go fuck herself. This is on par with answering a house call to check for monsters under the bed. “You called us to do what? Because why? Are you for’serious?”
Sweet lord in heaven. I teach in college and this isn’t even in the Top 20 of things I can be bothered to care about. Sit however you want in class. I’m happy you’re there (and I mean that in a non-sarcastic way). Do I get annoyed when students are clearly on their phone or surfing the internet? Maybe a little. But I …
Exactly when do the police start their own uprising against white people who keep using them to deal with their petty little irritations in life?
Pathetic, this is why no one respect the teacher in the first place
Ugh! I can smell the skoal, cheetos dust, and unwashed human from here.
I present to you **drum roll** the Master Race! Bless her heart.
“Both men appear to be heterosexual...”
Funny part is, people like us (who acknowledge out faults) would probably make the best parents. Because we are aware of our shortcomings and actively want to ensure they don’t cause problems. That awareness is SO FUCKING RARE and often absent from parenting discussions.
TLDR: Trump is a poor person’s idea of what a rich person is, dumb person’s idea of what smart person is, a weak person’s idea of what strong person is.
Nearby a gaggle of white girls walked out of the mall with fifteen thousand dollars worth of stolen makeup.
I just wanted to say I’m impressed at how many articles you put out in a short period of time. Maybe you had a few of them already lined up and it just so happened that they were all published one after another but impressive output!
Millions of good people are broke or have been broke. It’s no reflection on them, never was. It’s part of life in this country. Morally broke is the problem. That hurts everyone. These fucks are the worst people on Earth. Maybe Trump will finally teach Americans to eat the wealthy. God I hope so.
And let’s just point out one of the husks at the table is Judith Miller. Every one of her fake laughs goes over like a cackle. If she seems out of touch, it’s because she doesn’t seem to realize not every journalist gets a Fox News parachute after feeding the world stories to fuel the invasion of Iraq.
