Omw to an Abolish ICE protest
In my town, ICE has been arresting people in the courthouse, even if they are testifying for non-immigrant related cases
Haven't seen any local white supremacists at any rally lately, feels too safe for Central California
"There’s a long history of white women harassing Black people and getting cops to arrest them. The only danger they feel is of losing their place within the white patriarchy."

I made this thread, thought maybe some that frequent this one could be interested
I... can't really find much about this online.
According to von Abele, his videotaped tirade was simply a plea for all races and cultures to openly appreciate their people’s accomplishments. “I believe that every single person should love themselves and love their culture, and we should all be allowed to be proud of our heritage,” he said. “As such, I would like to have my views be fairly considered in the public discourse, and not dismissed solely due to my race and gender.”
In the video captured Sunday night, von Abele is seen standing outside Butler Library around 4 a.m., wildly swinging his arms while screaming at other students: “Europeans built the modern world.”
What a dipshit, that's the lie he uses to cover his bullshit? Yeesh, try harder to cover your blatant racism dude.
That logic is straight from ben Shapiro's playbook.
Believing that is one thing, announcing it through the top of your lungs to other races is another. He’s clearly trying to antagonize.
Wildly flailing your arms isnt a good idea if you're trying to prove that you're responsible for the development of the western world
Curious if someone could help me help a friend of mine. Essentially the issue is, is that they explicitly think they're not racist, however they make comments that are obviously stereotypical of the race their making their comments toward. The problem is, they continue to justify this by stating something along the lines of "I'm not being racist or stereotypical, it's just my experience with them". Does anyone have any sort of documentation or educational materials that specifically cover issues such as this, where a person's experience with a certain identity can be vastly differ than another?
When that came up on Twitter I thought it was going to be a joke article from the onion.
This is the most salient example I have ever seen of a micro-aggression.
The dismissive and condescending tone she interrupts him with is an excellent example of white fragility. She can’t handle that a black person is intelligent enough to understand what she insinuated so in response she tries to gaslight/downplay that it wasn’t her expectation that he’d understand.
Please please please listen for this tone and posture being used when you see other minorities across gender, ethnic and class lines. It’s such a common display of power.
