Anonymous said: Would I be wrong in assuming that your end game for white people is to have no sense of dignity or pride, and to put themselves last before every other race? For people to say whatever they want about them, and for them to not be able to even defend themselves? If so, isn't that vastly hypocritical, and also perpetuating a racial divide between white people and every other race? Do you at least have any concept of giving incentive for the oppressors not to oppress?

yoisthisracist:

Jesus christ, this exact kind of shit is why this site isn’t a dialogue with racists. It’s a classic right-wing trick (creationists do this all the time), wherein they start with their first incorrect premise, continue talking as if their first lie wasn’t something completely fucking ludicrous, and then act like you need to engage their entire blowhard “argument.”

So, nice try, asshole, sort of, but unfortunately, if you’re fucking stupid enough to believe that asking racists to stop murdering unarmed black people on the street, and then using all the levers of power in the city, county and state to cover it up the crime and silence dissent (for instance) is equivalent to “people to say whatever they want about them”, you’re just too much of a racist piece of shit to deal with.

PS. “Do you at least have any concept of giving incentive for the oppressors not to oppress?” - waaaaaaaaaaaaaaah, why won’t someone reward me for not being a racist piece of human garbage. waaaaaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh

PPS. Seriously, fuck you for being racist, and fuck you for bringing this weak-ass tactic, stupid.

"What is happening in Ferguson is exactly what opponents of the rise in military-style policing across America have long feared: when the feds arm white local cops with weapons of war and their superiors encourage them not to just play dress-up but to use their new war toys, it is inevitable that ordinary citizens – especially citizens of color – will get treated as the enemy."

— Ferguson is what happens when white suburban cops get weapons of war, writes Sadhbh Walshe.  (via guardian)

This expatriate and former resident of the American South agrees wholeheartedly.

David Bowie’s rare cover of ‘Love Will Tear Us Apart’ by  Joy Division.

A chance meeting in 1983 had David Bowie, Bernard Sumner and Peter Hook chatting away over beers in the Kings Arms in Salford. “…So we were all there just having a laugh and we joked that he should come n have a jam with us, then next minute - well, it was the next day actually, but i didn’t expect he’d definitely come by - and we were in the practice rooms and we were playing Love Will Tear Us Apart and I was like, f%$k we’re playing Love Will Tear Us Apart with David Bowie singing, this is crazy. We never released it - Bowie took a recording of it, and just layered some more vocals on for fun, sent it back to me…”

FUCK

"

Burning the Israeli flag in Auckland in protest over the murder of innocent civilians in Gaza is nothing to be ashamed of” said MANA Leader and Tai Tokerau MP, Hone Harawira. “Calling for both sides to stand down when one side is annihilating the other though, IS something to be ashamed of.

“On one side you have a state with nuclear weapons, tanks, artillery, fighter planes, helicopter gunships, warships, a fully operational army, and the best missile defence system in the world that has killed hundreds of innocent civilians, displaced more than 100,000 people, and destroyed the infrastructure of the people in Gaza, in the last couple of weeks.”

“On the other side you have kids with rocks, and irregulars with rockets who have killed 2 civilians.”

"

Hone Harawira on burning the Israeli flag, and the occupation, apartheid, and genocide taking place in Gaza.

I haven’t really been doing much “blogging” lately but I have been busy, so here is some of what is new in my life. 

  • I moved into a 1 bedroom apartment with my girlfriend Kotuku, it is beautiful, she is beautiful, and I love her
  • I moved my whole house by bicycle and it got on TV which was pretty cool
  • I finished my first trimester of study with some some B’s and A’s and I have reduced the number of papers I am taking (focusing on Religious Studies)
  • I am working several days a week at Bike Barn in Wellington and it is really great, easily the best store I have worked in.
  • I am riding my bicycle for FUN at least once a week, and finally appreciating the trails around Wellington. 
  • I miss my friends a lot and I might come to Christchurch over summer.
