Animals, Books, and Children: purple-ladys-stuff Question... An anguished question from a Trump supporter: "Why do liberals think Trump supporters are stupid?" The serious answer: Heres what we really think about Trump supporters- the rich, the poor, the malignant and the innocently well-meaning, the ones who think and the ones who dont.. That when you saw a man who had owned a fraudulent University, intent on scamming poor people, you thought Fine." That when you saw a man who had made it his business practice to stiff his creditors, you said, "Okay." That when you heard him proudly brag about his own history of sexual abuse, you said, "No problem. That when he made up stories about seeing muslim- Americans in the thousands cheering the destruction of the World Trade Center, you said, "Not an issue." That when you saw him brag that he could shoot a man on Fifth Avenue and you wouldn't care, you chirped, "He sure Knows me That when you heard him illustrate his own character by telling that cute story about the elderly guest bleeding on the floor at his country club, the story about how he turned his back and how it was all an imposition on him, you said, "That's cool!" That when you saw him mock the disabled, you thought it was the funniest thing you ever saw That when you heard him brag that he doesn't read books, you said, "Well, who has time? That when the Central Park Five were compensated as innocent men convicted of a crime they didn't commit, and he angrily said that they should still be in prison, you said, "That makes sense." That when you heard him tell his supporters to beat up protesters and that he would hire attorneys, you thought, "Yes!" That when you heard him tell one rally to confiscate a man's coat before throwing him out into the freezing cold, you said, "What a great guy!" That you have watched the parade of neo-Nazis and white supremacists with whom he curries favor, while refusing to condemn outright Nazis, and you have said, "Thumbs up" That you hear him unable to talk to foreign dignitaries without insulting their countries and demanding that they praise his electoral win, you said, "That's the way want my President to be." That you have watched him remove expertise from all layers of government in favor of people who make money off of eliminating protections in the industries they're supposed to be regulating and you have said, "What a genius!" That you have heard him continue to profit from his businesses, in part by leveraging his position as President, to the point of overcharging the Secret Service for space in the properties he owns, and you have said, "That's smart!" That you have heard him say that it was difficult to help Puerto Rico because it was the middle of water and you have said, "That makes sense." That you have seen him start fights with every country from Canada to New Zealand while praising Russia and quote, "falling in love" with the dictator of North Korea, and you have said, "That's statesmanship!" That Trump separated children from their families and put them in cages, managed to lose track of 1500 kids has opened a tent city incarceration camp in the desert in Texas - he explains that they're just "animals"- and you say, "well, ok then. That you have witnessed all the thousand and one other manifestations of corruption and low moral character and outright animalistic rudeness and contempt for you, the working American voter, and you still show up grinning and wearing your MAGA hats and threatening to beat up anybody who says otherwise What you don't get, Trump supporters in 2018, is that succumbing to frustration and thinking of you as stupid may be wrong and unhelpful, but it's also...hear me.. charitable Because if you're NOT stupid, we must turn to other explanations, and most of them are less* flattering Fuente: purple-ladys-stuff 25,271 notas A message to red caps

80s, America, and Children: Ronald Reagan / Died June 5, 2004, Bel-Air, Los Angeles, CA sauvamente: lkeke35: sugarbrownbabydoll: marginalised: cflat-major: louisthesixteenth: its a national holiday Celebrating someone’s death seems like a really macabre thing to do. Like I get that people don’t like him because of how his administration dealt with the AIDS epidemic, but promoting someone’s death as a good thing doesn’t sit well with me. during his administration, we had a problem with abuse of patients in mental healthcare facilities (asylums, but don’t call them that), and his response to it was just to shut down the entire system. he closed all public mental healthcare facilities because a few of them were mistreating patients, and all those mentally ill people suddenly found themselves homeless without the skills necessary to survive in the general populous. he’s the reason why our healthcare system is so terrible, and he’s to blame for the homelessness epidemic (i’ll get into the next reason why he’s responsible for our high homeless population in a sec). millions of people lost everything because of reagan. thousands died. he also completely restructured our economy. from 1776 until he became president, we had an economic system like no other (look up the American School), but he removed most of the rules and regulations we had to keep the system in place because our system at the time limited accumulation of wealth. we had a built-in buffer that kept most people middle class. when he restructured our economy so he and his friends could get richer, reagan removed the safeguards that kept us out of poverty (most of the time), so now the lower echelons of society were in freefall towards homelessness. people lost their homes and businesses because the rich could do basically whatever they wanted now. superstores like wal-mart rose to prominence and pushed out small businesses because of this. our government also greatly reduced its expenditure on infrastructure. ronald reagan’s greed is why we don’t have enough trains and all our roads are falling apart. he also expanded our already bloated military while in power. one of his slogans was “peace in strength.” his goal for our country was to get an iron grip around the rest of the world and impose our own agendas on other countries at gunpoint. One of the first things reagan did when he came to power was to ignore the supreme court’s earlier ruling, ignore the constitution, and try to enforce a mandatory daily christian prayer time in all schools. when government workers went on strike against him and his policies, he fired 11,345 people. he put 11,345 people out of a job because they didn’t like him. he lowered taxes for the rich, but increased taxes on the poor, contributing to the aforementioned lack of infrastructure and homelessness crisis. he also began privatising the government, which put thousands of jobs at risk and made wealthy capitalists the men who run our country. reagan is responsible for trickle down economics. after the great depression, our government put in social programs to help people stay afloat, like universal healthcare for the elderly and disabled, basic income (the government paid people to dig ditches if they couldn’t find any other jobs. the ditches didn’t serve any purpose, but those people needed money and the government was willing to give money to anyone who worked), and food stamps. ronald reagan slashed all these programs and more, like the EPA, which made sure we were a “green” country. as a result of these slashes, people who had been secure on government assistance programs were now having to take out loans and get into debt, which jeopardised our economy. we had a stock market crash because people were becoming too poor to buy stocks, and our national debt increased by 3 times. we went from $997 billion in debt to $2.85 trillion in 1987. he also pushed us further into the cold war. previously, our relations with russia were cooling down a bit, but during reagan’s second term, he began actively threatening russia again. ronald reagan brought us to the brink of a nuclear war that would have killed all humans on earth. Ronald Reagan and Maggie Thatcher, the most hated prime minister in UK history, were close friends. he was also personal friends with Donald Trump. Under reagan, we resumed a history of violent military imperialism in foreign countries, most notably lebanon, afghanistan, and pakistan. In lebanon, we tried to stop a revolution against an oppressive regime, and in afghanistan and pakistan, reagan ordered the CIA to train civilians and create a military force to fight russia for us. Reagan created the taliban, a militant group that even today publicly dismembers people for playing games in public. they cut off children’s hands. He also began dealing weapons with China, betraying our longstanding ally, Taiwan, destabilising politics in the pacific. Under his orders, we secretly aided african and south american military dictatorships in crushing their opposition. He assisted Ayatollah Khomeini, the leader of Iran who started the 1979 revolution, in purging political opposition from the government. in 1988 our military shot down an iranian commercial flight, killing 290 civilians. Reagan was a Nazi sympathiser and referred to slain SS officers as “victims” of the war. just to make sure you read that right: Ronald Reagan supported the Nazis. He declared the war on drugs, a movement that has greatly increased the disproportionate incarceration rates of african american and latino men in this country. During Reagan’s second term, 115,000 people were diagnosed with AIDS and 70,000 died of it. Reagan did nothing to curb the spread, despite knowing that the AIDS epidemic almost exclusively affected black people and the LGBT community. when he learned how many people were dying and who they were, he laughed. he laughed at our suffering while we were dropping dead. In short, Ronald Reagan was a wealthy, selfish, greedy, capitalistic, imperialist, racist, ableist, homophobic, genocidal, antisemitic, warmongering, backstabbing murderer. Ronald Reagan was a monster. Wow and this didn’t even cover the crack epidemic It doesn’t cover the crack epidemic, or the various wars in South America, that resulted in the refugees immigrant crisis now. There’s a book called as the band played on about the AIDS crisis in the 80s and early 90s and how the conservative movement and Reagan basically steamrolled over AIDS activists. They basically denied that aids even existed for years before they even acknowledged it. the only reason they acknowledged it was because it started to affect heterosexual people and children. before that it was just a dreaded gay disease. Ronald Reagan was the devil and we are lucky that he is dead, but we are still suffering from his policies, rampant conservatism and his being anti anyone that wasn’t a straight white male.

Child Support, Fail, and Jail: Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration @balleralert Jay-Z and Roc Nation to Invest $3 Million in App That Combats Mass Incarceration-blogged by @thereal__bee ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ Jay-Z and Roc Nation will reportedly make a $3 million investment in an app called Promise, that combats mass incarceration. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ According to the website, the app was created by Phaedra Ellis-Lamkins and Diana Frappier to “get people out of jail and provide ongoing support and supervision to help keep them out.” The hope is that the platform will exist as an alternative to incarcerating individuals who cannot afford bail or who miss court dates by mistake. It will provide services to users that will help them log upcoming court dates, counseling appointments, and drug tests. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ When it comes to rehabilitation, Promise plans to provide programs to users that assist with job training and getting information about housing. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ As a rapper, Jay-Z has used his platform to consistently speak about how the jail system is designed to fail those of low class and people of color. Last year the rapper wrote an opinion piece on Father’s Day about the exploitative bail industry. For many individuals, they are jailed due to their inability to afford bail, despite not being convicted of crimes. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ During an interview with TechCrunch, Ellis-Lamkins spoke on the small infractions that lead to many people of color ending up behind bars. “People are going to jail because they look at a piece of paper and misread it, or are going to jail because they can’t afford a class because they’re instead paying child support. If we’re putting people in jail because they’re poor, brown or black, we’re spending money the wrong way.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀ “We are increasingly alarmed by the injustice in our criminal justice system,” Jay-Z said in a statement confirming his involvement with the app. “Money, time and lives are wasted with the current policies. It’s time for an innovative and progressive technology that offers sustainable solutions to tough problems. Promise’s team, led by Phaedra, is building an app that can help provide ‘liberty and justice for all’ to millions.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀

Drugs, Jail, and Memes: ethiopienne Pro-tip: white privilege doesn't mean white people have perfect lives. It means that white people do not have to deal with institutionalized, systemic racism in addition to their everyday problems. It means institutionalized, systemic racism does not cause white people's everyday problems. If your first reaction is to be angry and comment why this is wrong, take a deep breath, slowly read the post again and wait for the words to sink in. Think about what this is saying and try to deeply consider what this means, especially coming from someone who is not white. No one is saying white people have perfect lives, don't have problems, or even that there's no way they can be bullied-discrimanated against because of how they look. The difference is that racism isn't just a feeling or thought, it's INSTITUTIONALIZED and SYSTEMATIC, which means that you have laws (Jim Crow, housing discrimination, voter ID laws-voter discrimination, redlining), history, powerful figures, etc etc etc against you, not just individuals being rude to you. Yes you can be white and poor, you can be white and be bullied, you can be white and have problems. It's just that these problems are NOT reinforced by or due to a historic, systematic, institutional oppression based solely on your race-ethnicity. In the US for example, the country was built by white men with laws for white men. Over time, many of these laws have changed: ex. everyone has the legal right to vote now, slavery is illegal, Jim Crow laws no longer exist. Unfortunately, these laws don't just end; they evolve. All people can vote, yet voter ID laws disproportionately prevent people of color in poor communities from voting. Slavery is illegal, yet black men disproportionately fill jail cells and are exploited for their labor while privatized prisons profit off their incarceration (see: war on drugs, or "13th" on Netflix). I can list examples like those two all day, but the point is that people of color continue to face institutionalized, systematic racism that has legal & political backing and an entire history causing and justifying it. White people do not have to deal with that, hence the term "white privilege." And, again, no one is saying white people don't have problems. That's not what "white privilege" means.

All Lives Matter, Bailey Jay, and Black Lives Matter: #BLACKLIVESMATTER #BLACKLIVESMATER #BLACKLIVESMATER gph.is 1 Share I Like Comment share You and 4 others ALL LIVES MATTER!!! 5 hours ago Like Reply Aunt Bootsie saying all lives matter is a way to take away power from the Black Lives Matter movement. It is equivalent to going to a walk for Breast Cancer and screaming about how there are other cancers to. It does not help the movement. I don't know if you understand that saying all lives matter is really hurtful and oppressive. We live in a society where Black men die at police hands on a daily basis for doing nothing illegal. Black men are murdered by police officers for simply existing and the police get away with it. The Black Lives Matter movement is not to say that other lives don't matter. It's saying that black lives are under constant attack in the United States. Historically the United States has through slavery, segregation, mass incarceration and brutality said that black lives don't have value. Black lives do matter and our country needs to start recognizing that. So I hope you recognize your error and never say all lives matter again because it truly is unhelpful, oppressive and ignores the fact that many people and institutions in our country only value certain people. link6echo: theeforvendetta: missgorightry: My friend just fucking destroyed her Aunt on Facebook OK WHITE GIRL YOU BETTER DRAG AUNT BOOTSIE!!

Just wow.</p> </blockquote> <p>You know. Things like that are really easy to say in complete hindsight. </p> <p>Personally if someone would try to rob me I’d probably try to avoid even drawing my gun, because nowadays even clear cut self defense cases can land you in jail. This one isn’t, but as I say, better safe than sorry, and only one person knows how he was going to react if she kept struggling.</p> </blockquote> <p>He didn’t even have time to react or even properly notice the gun. That’s ridiculous.</p> </blockquote> <p>Yeah? How much time do you think she had?</p> </blockquote> <p>The entire thing was 6 seconds long. It’s ridiculous that a life could be lost so quickly. Yeah, criminals are shit but jfc their lives don’t need to be taken like that.</p> </blockquote> <p>You have it backwards. </p> <p>The man decided that taking the purse was worth risking his life. He risked his life for a <i>purse</i>. He didn’t think about the consequences of his actions very thoroughly. We always have choices in life, and many times, one wrong choice ends our lives, so we have to be careful what actions we choose, and if we choose to attack someone, then we have forfeited our rights to live if they defend themselves. We have decided the risk is worth it.</p> <p>It is our responsibility to be aware of our consequences, such as driving drunk. If someone drove drunk, crashed, and died, would you be crying about what a horrible loss of life it was and how he wasn’t to blame? Or would you be blaming him for driving drunk? Yes, the loss of life is sad, it’d be great if people stopped doing stupid shit that gets them killed… but humans are… reckless. And other humans feel the need to protect themselves from stupid idiots who think stealing a purse is worth the risk of dying.</p> </blockquote> <p>I honestly think you’re the one that’s got it backwards.</p> </blockquote> <p>Your tags are right, no one should die over a purse. But the criminal made the choice to take that risk. We should not lie down and be victims, we should encourage the idea that being a criminal is going to be a very bad idea.</p> </blockquote> <p>Oh yeah, the US of A with its incredibly high incarceration rates and continuing capital punishment sure knows how to deter criminal activity….</p> </blockquote> <p>I know you’re being sarcastic, but it’s somewhat true. Although the level of overall crime has dropped dramatically in the past 20 years and continues to drop, we do still have problems, and one of the major problems is the media and all the political bullshit they play around with, while cities like Chicago are getting shot up, and the cops are leaving San Bernardino and letting the gangs take over…</p> <p>And that’s another reason we need to be prepared. I refuse to be a victim. If they want to take the chance with me, I will do whatever I can to ensure they do not do it to anyone else. Criminals are <i>far</i> less likely to go after a target if they know they’re armed. This tactic has worked all throughout history, and you can especially see it in Native American tribes who were known for extremely brutal tactics. They did those things to ensure people didn’t want to fuck with them. It also works in nature, hence many of the colors in insects (black and red equals dead) and other defense mechanisms. </p> </blockquote> <p>That guy could have done much worse than just steal her purse as well. Bye bye, robber.</p> </blockquote> <p>That one time victim blaming was ok because of feelings and sanctity and stuff</p></blockquote> <p>OH MY GOD IT’S NOT EVEN REAL</p></blockquote> <p>And even if it was, all these people whining &ldquo;the purse wasn&rsquo;t worth a life!&rdquo; can sit right on the hell down because not only is that a prime example of your precious victim blaming, it also completely ignores the fact that he could&rsquo;ve seriously harmed her in other ways. So much for feminism.</p>

Bodies , College, and Crime: APOLOGY NOT ACCEPTED Statement from Activist Who Challenged Hillary Clinton On Race Last Night "Last night, I confronted Hillary Clinton with her own words. She used those words to frighten the nation with dog-whistle racism by referring to at-risk youth as "superpredators." "While Clinton's choice of words in that speech were racist and offensive, i is the impact of the policies that she vigorously championed that should give us all pause. She owes the nation an apology for using her position of power to enact criminal justice policies which have been roundly denounced as failures "Here's the truth: the Clinton legacy has left our prisons bursting at the seams. Real lives have been destroyed as a result. It is an indisputable fact that millions of Black people were locked up for drug crimes and provided the bodies for the expansion of the prison industry “The 1994 Crime Bill that she so vigorously defended not only expanded incarceration, but stripped funding for college education from prisoners. The Clinton legacy allowed for policies that prevented anyonc convicted of a felony drug offensc from receiving food stamps or income assistance. Clinton-led welfare reform fundamentally ripped apart the social safety net. "Hillary Clinton did not misspeak. She acted vigorously to support policies that this country now struggles to undo. She must own her role in the political disaster that befell Black communities as a result. "Makc no mistake. Hillary Clinton's efforts to push thesc policies resulted in the continued destruction of Black communities and the swift growth of our mass ncarceration crisis.
