Community, Fire, and Police: Robert Littal Follow aso @BSO Cops Resign After MO Town Elects 1st Black Female Mayor bit.ly/1F41Fdw wia @Tamantha5 7:15 PM - 19 Apr 2015 わ ★ 180 RETWEETS 47 FAVORITES David Waldman @Kagrox Follow Refusing to abide by your oath of office bc the mayor is black tells us everything we need to know about how you regarded the oath before. 8:25 AM-20 Apr 2015 27 RETWEETS 18 FAVORITES bilt2tumble: lisafer: peroxidepirate: antilla-dean: micdotcom: Several Missouri cops have resigned after their town elected a black female mayor  The city of Parma, Missouri, has seen mass resignations among the local police force after the city’s first black female mayor, Tyrus Byrd, was sworn in on Tuesday. Five of the force’s six officers handed in their resignations to the outgoing mayor — but they weren’t the only ones to quit on the new mayor. Beyond microaggressions.   This is what black women have to deal with in any professional situation.  This is the most extreme, but we are constantly having to prove our competence. I feel for this woman. I really do. But those cops who are such racist pieces of shit they refuse to work for a Black woman? Good riddance. Mayor Byrd and the whole community will be better off without them in positions of authority. Wait, it’s bigger than this. This mayor ran on an anti-corruption platform, and there were a total of twenty people who resigned from various parts of the city - city attorney, police, water supervision. It’s suspected that they were all linked to the previous mayor and were part of the corruption she was campaigning against. Citizens have been complaining for years about the corruption with the previous Mayor Randall, and it’s suspected that these resignations were from his cronies. Which makes her the one of the most effective mayors in the U.S. simply by being elected. Going through the records to figure out just how corrupt/racist/abusive they were before she stepped into Office and handing out indictments/canceling pensions is gonna be hard enough. But, at least, now she won’t have to fire their asses.

Alive, Donald Trump, and Fucking: nunyabizni: mitchfynde: libfas: libfas: NYU stages gender-swapped Trump-Clinton debate to prove gender bias. End up realizing they might have been biased against Trump after all. So NYU staged a re-enactment of the debates, with Clinton acted by a man and vice versa. The idea was that it would ‘confirm the suspicion that Trump’s aggression would not be tolerated from a woman’, and that ‘Clinton’s competence would seem even more convincing coming from a man’. It turned out a little different, here are some reactions from the crowd: We heard a lot of “now I understand how this happened”—meaning how Trump won the election.  The simplicity of Trump’s message became easier for people to hear when it was coming from a woman—that was a theme. One person said, “I’m just so struck by how precise Trump’s technique is.”  Someone said that Jonathan Gordon [the male Hillary Clinton] was “really punchable” because of all the smiling.  There was someone who described Brenda King [the female Donald Trump] as his Jewish aunt who would take care of him. Someone else described her as the middle school principal who you don’t like, but you know is doing good things for you.  Source FUCKING LOL I just noticed the Guardian uploaded the video but they unlisted it, meaning only people with the link can see it (pls thank me pls) and it doesn’t show up in searches or suggestions. They basically hid it. Hmm. Why oh why would they do that?…. International Women’s Day? Here’s FEMALE TRUMP! KEEP IT ALIVE PEOPLE!!!!!!!!

That may be an example of some bias, but when somebody goes to employ someone, there is usually a point at which a wage is negotiated. A smart person will research what is a reasonable amount for them to be paid based on their experience in that position and the location and all other factors. A graph of how much somebody is &ldquo;willing to pay&rdquo; based on nothing but a resume and no personal interaction is not proof of anything, much less a wage gap.
