CNN is the go to for white conservative people trying to “discredit” supposed “narratives”. They know their liberal friends won’t accept the Fox News information. But CNN supposedly represents the liberal mainstream media. This is pretty laughable if you actually watch CNN. They bend over backwards to be neutral on … Continue Reading CNN and Meaningless Statistics That White People Love
Last night I watched as black person after black person stood up to condemn the rioting in Baltimore. They stated clearly they thought this was wrong, that these young people throwing rocks and concrete and wounding cops were thugs and trouble making opportunists out to create mayhem. They noted they … Continue Reading It’s Never Enough
So, in the wake of the Indiana Religious Freedom law, a reporter went out and started to ask local businesses if they would still serve gay people. One small Pizza joint totally bit, saying they would not serve gays. The internet explodes with this confirmation of what some of us worried … Continue Reading Threats Are Not Protest
I have to be honest…when it comes to online arguing, the minute I tire of a discussion, I tend to walk away. Sure I may come back to it later…but if I tend to just say my final piece and move on. Especially if you are a “Patriot” or Infowarrior … Continue Reading Quieting the Infowarrior
I am unsure what Nellie Andreeva is saying here. Okay. That is a lie. The short version is: There are to many non-white faced on TV these days. I am sure she would dispute this, claim I am misunderstanding her point. But, as is the case with any sea change, the pendulum … Continue Reading White Actors Need Roles Too!
Ted Cruz may end up being a wealth of hilarity folks. Just look at this: “I actually intellectually find this very curious, but on 9/11, I didn’t like how rock music responded,” he said. “And country music, collectively, the way they responded, it resonated with me.” I find this intellectually … Continue Reading The Curious Case of Ted Cruz and Country Music
Ever since the #BlackLivesMatter movement got going shortly after the shooting of Mike Brown there has been an attempt by (overwhelmingly white) conservatives to challenge with a very consistent meme of “Where is our protest?” The meme works this way…people find an incident where a person shoots and wounds or … Continue Reading Where Is the Protest
So, Republicans sent a letter to Iran. And, shockingly, it is not working out the way they expected. Some Republicans are taking the “It was just a joke” approach. Lighten up, everybody! The Daily Show noted that both sides are pretty hypocritical on this exact issue. What it comes down … Continue Reading Oops!
There has been a trend among Conservatives and Republicans to compare Obama to “tough foreign leaders” unfavorably. Most recently, it was regarding Netenyahu and his speech. A speech that was pretty much the same one he gave about in 2003 about Iraq. His 2003 speech missed on pretty much every … Continue Reading If Only Obama Were More Like Genghis Khan
My entire life growing up in Church, I commonly heard Christians being frustrated by people who lumped all Christians into one group, blaming all Christians for the “Bad apples”. The Church was not throwing those bad apples out necessarily. But Christians hated being held accountable for people they had no … Continue Reading It Is Not Fair To Judge Us By Our Worst (Unless…)
For most of the Presidency of Barack Obama, a common complaint from his critics has been that he takes to many photo ops. He is always using any chance to get a photo op. On it’s face, this is a pretty stupid criticism. All Presidents show up for photo ops. … Continue Reading Photo (Less) Hog
In the cases of Tamir Rice and John Crawford, there were justifications by those who see themselves as “supporters of the police” that both were shot…well, fairly. See, they were both handling BB guns. And the argument goes that there was no time to determine these were BB guns and … Continue Reading BB Guns Are Not Dangerous, But How Can We Tell?
Not the NYC PD, apparently. For all the public whining about how nobody respects them, some police departments seem to be going out of their way to be as big a set of imbeciles as they can. First, when DeBlasio showed up at the hospital when two officers were murdered … Continue Reading Who Wants Goodwill?
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
