When you hear about Philando Castile or Alton Sterling, your first response shouldn't be #NotAllCops. Your first response shouldn't be #AllLivesMatter. Your first response shouldn't be #BlueLivesMatter. That betrays a callousness and an profound ignorance of the ways in which our "justice" system and our police force criminalize being black.

#BlackLivesMatter doesn't mean that other lives don't. It means that right now, society apparently doesn't give two shits about black lives. It means that when black unarmed young men are killed by police (by unarmed I mean either not carrying a weapon or not drawing one even if they had it on them), the media immediately seeks to assassinate their character. Just look at the coverage of Alton Sterling. It's profoundly disgusting.

These guys aren't the perpetrators of any actions. They are the victims. They are dead. They can't tell their side of the story or go back to home to their families. I'm sick and tired of the media treating them automatically as some kind of criminal and thus attempting to justify, in the public's mind, that person's death. They are attempting to criminalize the very "act" of being black.

Goddamn. Cracked is so good.

Sunday night's Democratic debate in Michigan simply couldn't hold a candle to its Republican counterpart in terms of the quantity and quality of WTF moments. With the absence of candidates boasting about the size of their genitals, voicing expected-but-still-disturbing views of LGBT Americans, or

Let's do this together. Give $1 and I will match it for 'Educate women trapped in sex trade'.
Did you know? India is home to as many as 10 million commercial sex workers, many who were forced into the trade.

Yet again we see the yearly uproar over the Yulin dog meat festival. I wonder how many of those people are massive hypocrites who condone the endless torture of millions upon millions of cows, pigs, and chickens (for starters).

Just something to think about.

Wow...the woman who said this thinks Sanders has abandoned abortion rights activists: "Again, I am where I have been, which is that if there's a way to structure some kind of constitutional restriction that take into account the life of the mother and her health, then I'm open to that."

Shame on you Hillary. Shame. On. You.

Look. I hate talking about Trump because it gives him more exposure. However, I felt this has to be said.

Donald Trump is a demagogue, a race-baiter, and a violent sicko. He has been inciting violence on protesters (protest has historically been regarded a form of free speech), stoking racial tensions by invoking classic racist stereotypes (mexicans are rapists, blacks are lazy, muslims are terrorists), and generally seems to want to turn America into a more violent country. This is disgusting, and the fact that the GOP is on the verge of nominating him as their candidate for the highest office of the land is frankly terrifying.

I don't give a damn about his "potty mouth". I don't give a damn about his insulting all the other candidates at the debates instead of actually engaging in intellectually honest, substantive debate about issues. But I do give a damn when he starts inciting violence against specific segments of American society. I do give a damn when he incites his supporters to beat up protesters, effectively criminalizing an act which is supposed to be protected by the First Amendment. I do give a damn when he has now canceled TWO events [edit: apparently Cincinnati is still on] because they might become violent. This hasn't happened at any other candidate's rallies - Republican or Democratic.

He is fascist strongman attempting to take control of this country by following the steps of Benito Mussolini. He is inciting hatred against vast swaths of the American population. His words are leading to actual violence against blacks, latinos, and muslims. He will literally tear the fabric of this country apart.

Fuck this guy.
