White teenager violently robs a convenience store, viscuosly assaults two Asian men, and uses racial slurs-45 days in prison. Unarmed Black teenager steals cigarillos-shot to death. Same people defending MW saying he was young and made a mistake say MB acted in a way that got him killed. And race has no factor?
Snaps for that Lupita shout out. "OMG SHE'S SO DARK AND (yet, somehow!!!) PURDY!!111" - white women everywhere.
Sorry, that may be the case, but it is really irresponsible and horrifying to just speculate something like that, like 24 hours later without knowing anything definitive enough to make that leap.
I wonder why people are suddenly upset about ghost writing. Oh yeah, it's because they get to criticize a young woman who is popular among even younger women!
As a white person, I can say that this result is because most white people view racist actions as nothing short of being in the KKK. They don't think the Michael Brown incident had anything to do with race because they don't view subtle discrimination ingrained over the span of a person's whole life as racism. It's… Read more
Don't care, still LOVE the royal family. I'm not a patriot in the slightest and it hurts my lefty credentials but I can't resist rolling my eyes whenever people clutch their pearls about the cost of them.

Just back from our vigil. This year, we included candles and poems for missing and murdered aboriginal women. This madness can't continue. Thanks for bringing this issue here. I would love Jez to do a whole piece on it.
Any Canadians reading this: if your vote in the next federal election can be bought for the altogether reasonable price of a promise for a national public inquiry into Canada's murdered or missing aboriginal women, then as of this posting your vote goes to the NDP.
He's from a family full of rich White supremacists. Oh and his grandfather tried to install a fascist leader in place of FDR. This is not a family that deserves more time in public life, and they certainly shouldn't come close to deciding public policy.
It has nothing to do with edginess. The reason why people dislike Iggy Azalea is because she only cares about black people when she wants to profit from blackness. She buys a fake big butt that African American women have historically been known for and adopts a fake southern black accent in her music. But her… Read more
This man became the leader of the free world because he wanted to "prove" to his family he wasn't a silver spooned ne'er-do-well. He put countless men and women in physical harms way, set back relations with other countries by decades, tanked the economy in this country and others, destroyed the housing market,… Read more
Selective memory. Republicans don't want to have to admit that they supported a shitty president, a MUCH shittier president than Obama, for eight years.
Yeah a man who overlooked warnings of a terrorist attack isn't a bad man. Give me a fucking break.
