    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

    From TDB:
    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.”
  9. 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.

    I've had people confuse my ethnicity for Hispanic even though I'm technically white. I've had people call me "taco girl" and "gardener gal" back in grade school. Racism is absolutely disgusting to me especially when the perpetrators are young children. It really needs to stop.

    To be honest, tell they have some positive experiences to contradict that frame of thinking you will probably continue to play a game of pigeons chess... I find a lot of times when people are mostly stereotyping not intentionally being outright racist its from ignorance.. they have most likely only ever met a handful of people that aren't of the same race/culture, the ones they have met they probably didn't get to know well enough to start shedding some of that negative thinking.. So my best advise is see if you can help him get a little better exposure.. maybe go out somewhere for drinks somewhere a bit more diverse then he's used to.. something like this..

    Being black feels suffocating. I can list all the ways I've observed being placed at a disadvantage, dismissed, distrusted, etc. It's very exhausting.
