Wow. The witness that best supported Darren Wilson’s testimony was less reliable than the conservative white people who often quoted her as being. In the weeks after Brown’s shooting–but before she contacted police–McElroy used her Facebook account to comment on the case. On August 15, she “liked’ a Facebook comment … Continue Reading 40 Is Not a Winning Number
So…Sony gave in and canceled the Interview in it’s entirety. The so stupidly named Guardians of Peace and North Korea beat the studio. People who believe in the freedom of speech, the right to protest and freedom of expression should be chilled. And yet, I am seeing some folks opting … Continue Reading The Error of Defeat
Just want to say…if something seems like a vile form of degradation based porn you would find repulsive on the internet, maybe our government should not be using it as an “Enhanced Interrogation Technique”.
I confess, I am really tired of the online Conservative meme of telling a tragic story about a cop being killed and asking “Where are the protests” acting as if there is some grand hypocrisy on display. For example, the current version of this meme is this one. It is … Continue Reading Where Is the Hypocrisy?
Seriously…how is it that the same people I know who are most distrustful of Government are the same people who seem certain that every death at the hand of a cop is justified? What do these folks think cops are? They are an extension of our government. And somehow, people … Continue Reading The Disconnect Is Amazing
Think about this. Choke holds are banned in New York. An officer used a choke hold on Eric Garner. Garner was gasping out that he could not breathe. The cop did not stop. Garner died. The coroner determined this was a homicide. This was caught on video. A grand jury … Continue Reading Cutting Off Air
So, I started watching the Voice a couple years ago. I was really pleased this season, until America kept saving Ryan Sill over much better performers. Seriously, America…Anita Antoinette and Reagan James were both far more deserving to go on. And Sill did not make me eat my words last … Continue Reading Anger Within the Royals
My Facebook feed filled up pretty quick with white people lamenting the Ferguson situation. Except, it was not the kind of lamenting you would hope. It was white people expressing how they cannot understand how black people cannot get it through their heads how destroying their own community solves nothing. … Continue Reading Just Don’t Understand
With riots, there are many tragic issues at hand. Looting is not an expression of rage against an injustice. And if I came to find my store burned to the ground? I would be devastated. And this to, is not raging against an unjust system. Of course, looters and vandals … Continue Reading The Shift
In Februaury of 2012, seventeen year old Trayvon Martin was shot dead by George Zimmerman. When the story broke a month later, we were told by Al Sharpton (who took up the cause very publicly) that we had a story about a white man who had stalked and killed a … Continue Reading Trials and Bad Choices
Cause he is clearly a genius.
Has never been asked for his birth certificate or to prove where he was born. He is a white guy. White guys with an American based accent will never be expected to prove they are Real Americans.
