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.

that you have completed?
O 8th grade or less
high school, but did not
Just filled out my health insurance forms!
yeah!l!l fucking around with health insurance forms!!!!
I hate when people complain about "oh health forms are stupid
they want my biological sex instead of my gender!! or they only
have male or female!!"
There's a reason for that, you dumb fucks, and they're referring to
Different health risks are present in different sexes, and whatever
gender is in your head does not change the fact that if you were
born female, you have a higher risk for certain cancers and
osteoporosis, and if you were bom male you have a higher risk for
heart disease and often a shorter lifespan than a female
In other words, your biological sex is an important factor in health
and health insurance, and your special snowflake status doesn't
Coulda said it nicer but it's true; its about health
No. There gets a point where nice doesn't work. There's too many stupid
ass angsty teens on here that are gonna get themselves seriously hurt or
sick because they wanna be a special fucking snowflake. Lemme tell you a
thing. Doctors don't give a fiying fuck what you identify as. All they want to
know is do you have two X chromosomes or an XY? Because cancer and
lupus and certain medicines don't give a flying fuck what pronouns you use.
This is about your fucking LIFE. stop being angsty for TWELVE SECONDS
because when you're in an ambulance or going into cardiac arrest or
whatever the situation may be, it's ESSENTIAL that you get your head out
of your ass long enough to tell them your BIOLOGICAL SEX that you were
BORN WITH. It literally may save your life.

Many many people all around the earth believe in love for all living beings including animals (dead flesh eating hypocrites) on this planet but it's the select few who brainwash the weak minded ego filled humans to believe we are different and that race, religion and country separate us. I'm tired of all these wars and people killing people because of their own insecurities and ego. I do not support the troops, I do not support anyone who blindly follow orders, I do not support any religion of any kind as religion is a form of government and all government do to stay in power is lie, I do not support meat, dairy, fish, poultry, etc industries, and I do not support nationalism. I'm sure I just offended over 70% of my following and do not give a flying fuck. If my language offends you let's make it 80% then. Stop animal agriculture and let's feed the world, let's stop believing in false gods aka lies and let's believe in ourselves, let's be the angels that heal and restore peace on this planet, let's stop taking orders and start standing up for all injustices, stop fighting wars that have nothing to do with you, stop voting and putting people in power over start taking self responsibility and govern your own actions, be mindful of your thoughts and actions. I can go on forever but I'll probably piss off another 10% of my following. - "At First The Truth Will Piss You Off But Then It Will Set You Free" - standup911 fuckthesystem realtalk

Why did I became a super popular meme in US presidential campaign?
1) I live and work in Belgium.
2) I work in my own tattoo shop.
3) I don’t give a flying fuck about US politics.
4) In the case I’d had to express an opinion, I’d say that Donald Trump is a nazi
… so, I have a job, Trump is indeed a racist, and the media that support his campaign all lie.
AND if you’re a US citizen, are poor or middleclass, you need to be a fucking idiot to believe that a billionaire will solve your problems. Billionaires will never solve your problems, they ARE the problem.
Please share to reinform.

<p>Apparently some vegans are telling people not to eat honey to support bees.<br/><br/>STOP. STOP NOW.<br/>DO YOU EVEN KNOW HOW BEES WORK?<br/><br/>Buy honey (local if possible) -> support beekeepers -> support bees.<br/><br/>I swear people don’t even think this stuff out. <br/>Beekeepers provide bees with an environment in which they can live, and are encouraged to thrive. Bees then have a big huge giant person who can deal with any threats to the hive. <br/>Yes, honey is a winter food supply for bees, but beekeepers (unless they’re dicks, in which case they’d be shooting themselves in the foot) will NEVER take too much honey from a hive, and will always ensure that bees have enough food. Think about it, you’re not going to starve a source of income/hobby, are you?<br/><br/>So now.<br/>Support beekeepers.<br/>Support bees.<br/><br/>buzz.</p>
<p>I think a few ppl took Bee Movie too seriously.</p>
<p>Can a knowledgable vegan tackle this post please? I can’t imagine this is logical.</p>
<p><strike>Yes, I can and I have several issues with that.</strike></p>
<p><strike><em><strong>Wild bees exist.</strong> </em><strong>Many different races, on top of that. Bees do not fucking need human support to live.</strong></strike></p>
<p><strike>The whole <em>“without us bees will die”</em> argument is wrong, because<strong> bees literally die because of us spraying pesticides on plants while bees are out pollinating </strong></strike></p>
<p><strike><strong>and because humans feed them substitutes instead of letting them <br/>nurture their young with honey. </strong>(that’s 2 links)<strong><br/></strong></strike></p>
<p><br/><strike>There is more than enough cruelty involved in honey.</strike></p>
<p><strike>Watch the more than honey documentary and shut the goddamn hell up forever.</strike></p>
<p><strike>this needs to be reblogged thousands of times with that takedown because I’m god damn tired of seeing thousands of notes on these misguided anti vegan posts when what matters here are the bees, not how humans are their saviors</strike></p>
<p>I can’t let this go, because whenever a vegan pulls this shit it always baffles me. I live on an apiary, for Christ’s sakes, so it’s always fascinating to see some jackoff on the internet telling me how beekeepers operate.<br/><br/>Wild bees exist, but their population is not this massively impressive, sustained population. You can thank logging and development for that.<br/><br/>While it is true that bees die because of us, and honestly, NO ONE IS ARGUING AGAINST THAT. THE ENTIRE SAVE THE BEES DEBATE IS ABOUT THE FACT THAT BEES ARE BEING KILLED BY PESTICIDES. It blows my goddamn mind that vegans wanna hop on that bandwagon and act like people don’t get it. Everyone gets it. Even Monsanto gets it, Monsanto just doesn’t give a flying fuck.<br/><br/><br/>The ONLY time that beekeepers have to give a honey-substitute to bees is when a winter is particularly harsh and the bees deplete their resources. NO beekeeper “steals” all of the honey and leaves them with sugar water. We’re not evil villains twirling mustaches while laughing for fucks sakes.<br/><br/>Because at the end of the day, it’s a business. And vegans, apparently, believe that the world is not driven by capitalism, and that we can magically wish away capitalism with a flick of the goddamn wrist.<br/><br/>What happens if we do away with beekeepers and just ‘let nature’ decide?<br/><br/>Well, for starters, this leaves all bee populations to the whim of every other industry. No place for the bees to move in? Well, they’ll try to move onto people’s properties and build wild hives. And then get exterminated. Because people feel threatened by bee hives.<br/><br/>But the biggest, most damning thing, the thing that makes it so utterly irrational that vegans would be blogging AGAINST beekeeping, is that your entire goddamn diet REVOLVES around beekeepers.<br/><br/>Every single crop that requires insect pollination? Farms have beekeepers bring their bees to do that. Guess what happens without beekeepers? Can’t mass-pollinate as easily. Those wild bee populations don’t settle in close to humans because they’ll be taken down by exterminators, and butterflies and bumblebees don’t even come CLOSE to the pollinating power of honeybees.<br/><br/>When bees get an excess of honey? They get aggressive. It’s so they can defend their honey, of course. If you don’t harvest some, they just keep growing and getting more honey, because there aren’t days off for them. So then you get massive, unwieldy bee hives that are giant beacons for wildlife to pulverize.<br/><br/>What you SHOULD be campaigning against, vegans, is Monsanto. Because if the beekeepers vanish, do you know what remains? Monsanto. And the bees still get to enjoy breathing in all of those fantastically lethal chemicals, only now without there being a viable commercial reason to give a shit about them. On top of that, the bees lose out on protection and, indeed, on concerned businesses convincing politicians to stop Monsanto.<br/><br/>It is goddamn frustrating to me. Our bees produced 700 pounds of excess honey this year. 700 pounds. Their reserves are filled to burst because we don’t like to have to feed them a substitute. Hell, we’ve only had to give them substitute once, for two weeks.<br/><br/>I hate it when people talk clean out their ass. The person who posted all of those sources, which, FYI, the non-vegan sources? Explain what honey does. They do NOT even talk about honey substitute, they just talk about what honey does for bees. Scare tactic bullshit. The person who posted all of that deleted their blog. Jesus, they must have really believed their bullshit confidently!<br/><br/>Don’t just lap up vegan propaganda. There are PLENTY of viable reasons to be vegan, and hey, I’m not saying you -should- eat honey if you’re vegan. But don’t you DARE try to tout this bullshit as “fact”. The only things hurt by this, are the bees. Hate it all that we want, at this point, the bees DO need us, because if we didn’t need them, you know for a fact we’d wipe them out. We’re a disgusting race hellbent on slaughtering whatever doesn’t suit us. If we didn’t use bees for agriculture and honey? Holy shit, they’re annoying stinging motherfuckers, we’d probably have tons of pesticides designed specifically to kill them.<br/><br/>Sorry that I ranted about that, just, fuck man. I can’t stand vegan propaganda aimed at honeybees. It invariably signs a death sentence for honeybees every single time.</p>
