CNN and Meaningless Statistics That White People Love
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
It’s Never Enough
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
White Actors Need Roles Too!
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!
Through Twitter, I recently discovered the online community Black Girl Nerds. I know…I am not their target demo (white and a guy)… but I am really impressed with the community. Their articles are thoughtful and challenging. And the discussions they generate? Some of the best discussions (especially on the intersection … Continue Reading NERDS!!!
I noticed Jeff Sneider (who has stated a 95% certainty that Peter Parker will not be white) clarified a bit on twitter where he is getting this idea. He noted that white actors are going out for the role, but agents for some of those actors have told Jeff they … Continue Reading Just Maybe…
It Won’T Be Peter Parker Maybe…?
So, I have been pretty firm in my statement that Marvel and Sony are not going to switch out Peter for Miles in the Spider-Man franchise. There is this rumor from late last week. “This is not set in stone guys, but I’m telling you right now: Spider-Man is not … Continue Reading It Won’T Be Peter Parker Maybe…?
BB Guns Are Not Dangerous, But How Can We Tell?
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?
Who Wants Goodwill?
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?
40 Is Not a Winning Number
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
Where Is the Hypocrisy?
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?
Cutting Off Air
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
Just Don’t Understand
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
