Whites riot over pumpkins in NH and Twitter turns it into epic lesson about Ferguson, aka The Best of #PumpkinFest, PT 1. #staywoke
in this week’s episode of shit black folks would get murdered or jailed with no trial for
I try and bring up how he ruined free in state tuition in the name of hippie bashing when he was California’s governor often, but don’t exactly have the biggest platform.
"Worst of all, these students’ sense of the future is constrained by planning for and then paying down their student loans, often for decades. Economists are waking up to the fact that when young Americans enter the workforce burdened with over a trillion dollars in cumulative debt, they become risk averse, unwilling to move, less able to make major purchases, and slower to become homeowners. Not coincidentally, they don’t feel safe enough to register any major protests against the society that’s done this to them.”
fun statistics for adults!

The American public’s reaction to the Ebola virus outbreak that’s killed over 4,000 people has moved from concern to outright xenophobia
Call it “Ebola racism.” With the death of Liberian Thomas E.Duncan at a Dallas hospital last week and news that two nurses who treated him have contracted the deadly illness, increasingly paranoid Americans are treating immigrants and visitors from Ebola-ravaged countries like Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone like lepers.
And it’s pretty much extending to anyone black who doesn’t look American?? Like that woman of Haitian descent who was accosted by police because some asshole literally called them up saying ‘there’s a woman here from Liberia and she has ebola’????
[Image: A tweet from Elizabeth Warren reading: “Every single Republican in the US Senate voted against equal pay for equal work for women today. Unreal. #equalpay.”]
Read it again: EVERY. SINGLE. REPUBLICAN. Yes, that includes women.
I do not understand Republican women because I don’t get how you can be in a party, even as a super privileged white woman, knowing that they WILL turn on you. That their agenda to maintain the violent supremacy of white men will eventually whip around and slap you in the face.
Your party’s congressional representatives didn’t think your work and time and life were as valuable as men’s.
HOW THE FUCK ARE YOU A REPUBLICAN, WOMAN? What kind of states rights, purse clutching bullshit is so tempting that you’ll stay in a party that has clearly made it known you are inferior to them?
