I believe that every American should at least watch this monologue from The Newsroom.
I want to reblog this until my fingers bleed
this will be my child
The Redskins Nation citizens eagerly signed up, most of them knowing that they might be mocked in their interview with correspondent Jason Jones. But several hours into the Sept. 13 taping of the yet-to-air episode, the fans, all from Virginia, said they were suddenly confronted by a larger group of Native American activists — all of whom were in on the showdown prearranged by “The Daily Show.”
The encounter at a Dupont Circle hotel was so tense that an Alexandria fan said she left in tears and felt so threatened that she later called the police. She has told “The Daily Show” to leave her out of the segment but doesn’t know whether the producers will comply.
“This goes way beyond mocking. Poking fun is one thing, but that’s not what happened,” said Kelli O’Dell, 56, a former teacher who lives in Alexandria and doesn’t watch the show regularly. “It was disingenuous. The Native Americans accused me of things that were so wrong. I felt in danger. I didn’t consent to that. I am going to be defamed.”
If only the Native American activists protesting the racist R**** mascot knew what it was like to be falsely misrepresented and endangered without their consent, and defamed. They’d want to call the police, too.
In her essay "I’m Leaving!" White fragility in Racial Dialogues, Robin J. DiAngelo writes: ”fragility coupled with privilege will result in a response of resistance, indulgence in emotional incapacitation, exiting, or a combination of these.”
And they say people protesting the R**** mascot are the ones who are “too sensitive.”
And it’s if they’ve resided in different eras of history.
No shame to Walters but that that is who survived?!
Quiz many Americans on how the federal government works, and you might as well be asking them about rocket science. A recent poll of 1,416 adults from the Annenberg Public Policy Center of the University of Pennsylvania released Wednesday shows that a grave number of Americans show “great uncertainty” on “basic questions” about how their government functions — including stuff that any middle schooler, let alone a voter entrusted with electing the most powerful people on the planet, should know.
A Brazilian man recently submitted a birth certificate that if verified would mean he is 126-years-old.
According to the document, Jose Aguinelo dos Santos, was born on July 7, 1888 to African slave parents.
Once verified he will be the oldest man on the planet.
But slavery was so long ago…..
WHAT KIND OF WIZARD FISH IS THIS
This little fish lives deeeeeeeeeep down in the ocean and spits that little glob of bio luminescent liquid to momentarily distract predators and escape being eaten
It’s a wizard
A white civilian plowed his car through a group of peaceful protestors. When police responded they arrested a victim of the assault and not immediately the assaulter. Eventually the assaulter was arrested, but so were two other protestors. It took over 2 hours for the young boy to be transported to the hospital.
Wheres the justice?
Thy were arresting protesters left and right today. For taking pictures, even for just standing on the corner.
