Apparently, Asian, and Bitch: Detroit Rep. Bettie Cook Scott orn Asian opponent: Don't vote for the ching-chong! by Violet lkonomova August 16, 2018 at 11:09 AM comment v bizarre-transmission: thettasigma: ferventfox: awesome-everyday: internetdumpsterfires: Black people can’t be racist. Ugh, okay. The remark by this black woman was disrespectful and based on race. It was rude, bigoted and uncalled for. But no, in an anti black world, black people do not have the social, political or systemic financial power to be racist. Racism implies that beyond hurting and insulting that asian woman that this black woman is connected to a system that has the power to negatively impact this woman’s existence. That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do. And furthermore, there could be an argument made that deteoit is chocolate city and perhaps she does have that infrastructure of black networks to truly effect her opponent, but idk I was in Detroit last year and it looks a lot like Brooklyn does now. White and gentrified. White people with money, who control our political systems, finances, and predominant social narratives are claiming urban space like they’re colonizing pioneers looking to take the new world. Detroit isn’t the same anymore. Anyway, black people can be shitty insensitive bigots but we do not have the social capital to be racist, particularly not in the united states. “That dark skinned black woman who’s an incumbent running for state office likely has about the same amount of systemic power as i do.”  Ahahaha: No. A congressperson is the definition of systemic power. You can’t bitch about lack of political power when we are talking about elected politician.  Clearly the world isn’t so anti-black that it couldn’t vote her in.  Chang is also a first generation American, while Scott, to my knowledge, is not, and she specifically made anti-immigrant comments. She also has “power” within the context of her own ethnic community and she used that power to direct racism towards other African-Americans who supported Chang by implying they were somehow traitors, essentially dictating how they ought to act based on their race, particularly Chang’s husband for his interracial marriage (I don’t give a flying fuck what race you are, negative comments about interracial marriage and mixed race people are racist. period. end of story).  Even if I did accept the prejudice + power model or racism (which I don’t as that is neither the etymology or common usage of the word) Cook’s comments would certainly fit the bill. She made race based attacks on people based on types of marginalization that she is exempt from; and did so from a position of power partially gained by the fact that she is exempt from these types of discrimination.   It’s racist. Stop making excuses.  “That dark skinned woman who’s an incumbent running for office likely has about the same amount of systematic power as I do.” Is this person on drugs? They’re claiming that… A political person… A congresswoman… Has no power in the country in which she was elected… By the populace… As a politician. That, or they’re a politician too. Apparently we can say anything now and it makes sense. Huh. Also these remarks are the absolute epitomy of racism and if anyone refuses to see it, they’re not purely misinformed. They are delusional. *literally calls an Asian person ching chong*“How dare you say I’m being racist??” Thank you for attending today’s lecture on cognitive dissonance.

Beautiful, Crush, and Dank: You use the foot brake You use the engine brake You eat a Kit Kat to brake You use reverse gear to brake You crash into a car in front to brake You move to murica, shoot a machine gun and use the recoil to brake You crash into a crowd of people to brake You live in Soviet Russia where crowds of people crush into you to brake You crash into a crowd of people to brake and claim being an ISIS terrorist You crash into a crowd of people to brake and claim being an ISIS terrorist but misspell ISIS by forgetting the second "I" and thereby become an International Space Station which is orbiting earth thus braking is unnecessary You mumble while requesting a glass of juice and accidentally incinerate 6 million people. One thing leads to another and you are responsible for world war 2 Decades after your death time travel is invented and a professional assassin travels back in time in order to kill you and prevent everything you have done. On a beautiful summer day in 1932 the assassin locates you driving your mercedes througlh town and decides to take the shot. He misses the shot, killing an innocent man. A few decades later the grandson of this innocent man invents time travel in order to travel back in time and rescue his grandfather by killing the assassin who shot his grandfather while trying to kill you. Unluckily he messes up his time travel calculations and gets teleported right in front your mercedes. You crash into him and thereby brake. Hmmmmmmmmm via /r/dank_meme https://ift.tt/2NRn9Wv

Being Alone, Bad, and Cars: r/AskReddit u/ReichSmasher2018 7h What are redeeming qualities of humanity that nobody mentions? 8.9k 1.5k . Share TOP COMMENTS ▼ Tie YourTubesldiot 5h Once my mom and I were sitting in her car outside a grocery story, probably around 11 pm when we saw this toddler in the car next to us, on his own, who looked like he had been crying. So we smiled and waved at him and he smiled back and waved, then after a few minutes of this he fell asleep and we waited in our car to make sure whoever brought him there came back. We were sort of ranting about how awful it is to leave a toddler alone in a car especially so late at night, and how irresponsible the parent/guardian must have been, blah blah blah. Then the child's mother came back carrying cough syrup and baby pain relief. So we felt kind of bad for ranting about her, she had probably just panicked and had to get her kid something to make him feel better and had no one else to take care of him (I still don't think she should have left him in the car, but this was rural Ireland so statistics were in her favour). Anyway, the whole point of this ramble was that when we saw her come back, we went to pull out of our parking space, but as we did, three or four more cars pulled out too. I think we were all making sure this kid was ok, and I was just so touched by that moment. So l guess l'd say our greatest quality is our tendency to look out for others, especially when there's no incentive to do so Reply 76k Redditor tells heartwarming story of the wholesomeness of humanity
