Head, Hello, and Netflix: EXCLUSIVE RACIST SPACEY Security firm boss accuses actor of using N-word to describe his staff on set SECURIT READ A security company boss has accused Kevin Spacey of racism claiming the disgraced actor used the N-word to describe black staff who were working on the House Of Cards set. Earl Blue, 51, is the head of VIP Protective Services, which managed on-set security in 2012 during the shoot for the first season of the Netflix hit. Earl said Spacey refused to acknowledge black team members when they greeted him or shake their hands and he heard the actor tell his personal security manager: 'l don't want n*"ers watching my trailer." SECURIT EAIIAN Earl Blue, pictured right, with his business partner William Spencer Earl said he knew he 'might have a situation' with Spacey on the first day of filming in Baltimore when he and one of his supervisors, called Eric Lyles, were introduced to the actor. He said: 'The locations manager wanted to introduce him to me and my supervisor for the company and then meet a police officer who was handling the police situation. 'So Spacey comes out of the trailer and the locations manager says, "Kevin, I just want to introduce you to the security team." He introduced me, the supervisor, and the policeman by name. 'Kevin is standing right next to me. He looks me up and down, looks at my supervisor up and down, and reaches across us to shake the hand of the police officer and then walks away We are all standing there looking at each other like, "OK, that was awkward." 'From that point on we had a security officer posted outside of his trailer and my security force is predominantly African-American. 'Every time he walked back he would look at this black officer but he wouldn't even speak. He never spoke to my security guards but he was talking to everyone else. He even talked to the location manager that tried to introduce us to start with 'He talked to all the police officers, laughing and joking with them. Lyles, a 47-year-old who has worked in the security industry for 17 years, also recalls the alleged incident. He said: 'l always meet the stars and see what they're like, what their likes and dislikes are When I went to meet Mr Spacey to say hello to him, I went to extend my hand to him to shake his and he didn't want to shake my hand. I have never had that problem before As company boss, Earl said he would usually position himself next to the main talent, so he was stationed around 15 to 20 feet from Spacey's trailer. He claims that every time the actor left to go on set, he would lock the door behind him and start to walk away before turning around and checking the door a second time Earl said: 'He would look at me, walk back to his trailer and check to make sure the door was locked <p><a href="https://realamerican.tumblr.com/post/169795138780/you-really-believe-this" class="tumblr_blog">realamerican</a>:</p> <blockquote><p>You really believe this?</p></blockquote> <p>I don’t know if I do or not. I wasn’t there. But Spacey has shown himself to be a pretty shitty person so who knows.</p>

Alive, Facts, and Love: STORICAL | "Victoria Woodhull, prostitute, spiritualist, STERICAL Wall Street broker, publisher of a national FACTS newspaper, ran for President of the United States against Ulysses S. Grant and Horace Greeley in 1872," notes Irving Wallace. "Her platform supported free love, short skirts, abolition of the death penalty, vegetarianism, excess-profit taxes, birth control, better public housing easier divorce laws, world government, and female orgasm."Truly a woman ahead of her time. mollokoplus: mugglebornandraised: tadeuszkosciuszkoscoffee: reservoircat: captainscullyful: characterflaws: misslunasapphire: gerutha: phoenixaskani: If this woman was alive today, she’d have my vote. Shit. #she put frederick douglass on her ballot as v.p. too #unfortunately he didn’t know about it at the time #he read about it in the papers and was like ‘is this chick serious’ Victoria Woodhull 2016 This fails to mention that she was the first woman to run for US president, as well as being the first woman stockbroker on Wall Street alongside her sister Tennie Claflin, and their newspaper published the first English translation of the Communist Manifesto known to date @reservoircat HEY LOOK WHAT JUST POPPED UP ON MY DASH YES, I HAVE *OPINIONS* ABOUT THIS POST. Okay, for starters, Victoria wasn’t a sex worker. She wasn’t necessarily anti-sex worker in the manner of the time–she viewed it as a societal ill that occurred because of the inequality of women and the power structure which allowed and abused such sex work. But she very much wanted to destroy the structures that forced many women into sex work and sex trafficking. The claims that Victoria herself was a sex worker come from two things: her supportive stance on ‘free love’, i.e. the allowance for men and women to chose their own consensual sex partners outside of marriage, and her rise to power as a millionaire New York stock broker and newspaper owner. See, men of the time refused to believe that Victoria and her younger sister Tennessee Claflin could truly be such shrewd, ambitious and forward thinking businesswomen all on their own. So they spread the rumor that the sisters got their positions and fortunes from being sugar babies basically. She was also virulently anti-trafficking after her younger sister and business partner Tennie Claflin was kidnapped and sold into brothels by one of their business rivals. When this happened, Victoria and her husband Colonel James Blood tracked the traffickers down and retrieved Tennie at gunpoint from her captors.  Victoria was not well liked by her fellow suffragists either because she was an ardent supporter of Black suffrage and total equality of all races. She regularly told Stanton and Anthony to go fuck themselves. It was awesome. She was awesome. I just love Victoria Woodhull so much ;-; Can we necromance this woman and make her President? Her husband’s name was Colonel James Blood??? Her sister’s name was Tennessee???? Where’s the movie. I need it yesterday. And known by a surname not her husband’s. Fuck yeah!
