No, human excellence.
Nahhhh Black excellence sounds better
IN OTHER WORDS, RACE IS A DETERMINING FACTOR IN CHARACTER AND ACCOMPLISHMENT, GOTCHA. How about we claim it’s white excellence every fucking time you get a vaccine you fucking twit.
Because people of color contribute to vaccines, science, the medical field too. This has a focus on Black excellence and/or black people doing amazing things. This RARELY gets represented. “White excellence” is represented all the time on such a large scare. Must have hit a nerve with you. :33333333 AND YES, race can definitely be a determining factor in character and accomplishments. Some people, ya’ know, have this magical thing called:
But thanks for your input!
You know, every time you open your mouth about that word, it sounds more ignorant than the last fucking time. You want to know why? You have no idea what people have been through. What they go through on a day to day basis. What their family life is like, their social life, their medical life, their financial life. You have NO fucking IDEA what each and every person goes through and yet somehow you believe they somehow have an advantage (sorry, “privilege”) over you is just fucking disgusting. How about you go back to your college education that is probably being given to you through Affirmative Action or any other of the hundreds of fucking programs out there to prioritize and substitute money into making black kids successful, all while expecting the “white kids” to do it all on their own. Why don’t you go contribute to your black student union that can complain about the most minute issues while the white students have to put up with the issues because people like you don’t think it’s possible to discriminate a white person. How about you go back to your BET or Ebony magazine where you can be UNIQUELY REPRESENTED whereas the white kids have to do with what’s on regular TV…usually portraying things like “12 Years A Slave” or “The Help” basically making white people out to be this evil oppressive autocratic dictatorship of a race when you are so blatantly ignorant that you can’t even realize that the white race is made up of hundreds of ethnicities. Irish, German, Polish, Italian, Russian, Ukrainian, British, Spanish, Austrian, Slovakian (the origin of the term “slave”), Czech, Lithuanian, Scottish, etc etc etc etc etc. You act like each of these damn ethnicities has been treated above and beyond better than any person of color when in reality several of these ethnicites have faced the same if not more institutional oppression as you. In fact, you haven’t even FACED oppression because you’re some entitled little black kid in the United States thinking that oppression means being called out as a criminal when you are (racial profiling) or other idiotic things. You see this man?
This man is the person who catalyzed your freedoms. The freedoms you’ve had and always have had since you were born. This man wrote an impressive speech with the most beautiful analogies and linguistic skills as humanly possible. He conveyed the emotions he felt as he discussed how he’d have to tell his daughter that she was considered “less than” the other kids. He spent time in jail for peaceful protests. He lived in an era of peaceful protests by African Americans where they would politely sit in and refuse to move. They didn’t complain day in and day out…they went and DID. They achieved so much for you as well as the millions of white people that supported the Civil Rights Movement. And what do you repay this amazing era in history with? Complaints…accusations of bullshit “racism” when in reality it’s your own inefficiencies not allowing you to get places because you have every fucking opportunity that anyone else has because of THIS MAN. Perhaps you’d also remember this man:
This is a white man. Do you know who he is? Hint: He’s on our national currency penny. He’s the 16th president of the United States…a Republican I might add. He signed a little document that changed history forever because it was the FIRST of its kind…allowing slavery to be abolished. Do you know what this document was called? That’s right! The Emancipation Proclamation. We fought an entire war because of his devotion to your race, to allow you to be free. Both of these men died in the name of YOU. And you would wish to continue to sit here and claim everything is “privilege”. I think you have more privilege than I. A beautiful and amazing history and heritage that you can shout to the heavens. You have a rich culture that you can love and identify with without being labeled a “literal Nazi”. You can do everything regarding race just with the snap of your fingers where someone else would be labeled a “supremacist” for doing so.
So cut your “privilege” bullshit. These men did not fight for you to come back and throw it back in their face to be disrespectful, hateful, bigoted, asinine, and rude.
I’m so sick of this racial debacle that has continued over and over again despite having finished brilliantly in 1963 with the “I Have a Dream” speech. I’m so sick of race continuing to be an identifiable feature to you, whereas the rest of the world is sick of seeing race as an important aspect in a person’s character, individuality, and beliefs. Why you wish to continue to claim oppression where there is none, I have no fucking idea.
So shove your “privilege” up your fucking ass and do some fucking research.
EDIT: Let it be known that I have originally commented on this in the most benevolent means possible; to identify this as human excellence instead of a race doing well because we are now one, we are united, we are equal. The sheer number of people reblogging this and claiming that this is actually “black excellence” instead of human excellence (because I guess only black people get colon cancer?) further shows me that you’d rather be segregated from society. You’d rather identify with your race than join the rest of the world in unity. You’d much rather make things about yourself than just praise this for the medical miracle it is. As one of my friends brilliantly pointed out “colon cancer doesn’t effect just black people, he wasn’t doing this maliciously to make it an accomplishment for blacks, he was doing it because he was passionate in making a difference. He wanted to help people. Not provide achievements for his race. He wanted to provide achievements to humanity and the great things we can accomplish”. It appears everyone else commenting on this would much rather be selfish bigots than to praise this as a miracle for everyone who suffers from this disease. Good job being assholes.
Losing followers because some people don’t want to believe that Mike Brown is in fact guilty. idgaf
I cherish the memories of a question my grandson asked me the other day, when he said, ‘Grandpa, were you a hero in the war?’ Grandpa said, ‘No. But i served in a company of heroes.’
"Police brutality has gone too far!"
"Only police should be allowed access to guns!"
I’m tired of people like you trying to justify violence, theft, and general asinine thuggery.
The riots broke out after a peaceful candle vigil quickly grew into a mass free-for-all like middle-aged moms at Pottery Barn on Black Friday. Why? Because the opportunity presented itself.
Rioters and looters smashed and grabbed at stores up and down the street, shot at police helicopters, as well as kicked and threw anything they could at passing police cars. That’s when the police started sending in reinforcements. It was in response to the violence happening all over the place; not the peaceful demonstration. Use your brain.
Robbery is not a response to being attacked by police. This was not about anger. This was all about criminal opportunity. It was a chance for people to vent their superfluous outrage, destroy property and steal whatever they could get their hands on. Only a handful of the idiots that showed up to these protests even knew Michael Brown, let alone the facts of the situation.
You know what neighborhood businesses typically get burned? The ones that aren’t Black owned. You’ve seen them — the pawn shops, the quick-marts, the pay-day loan stores, the liquor stores, the third tier rent-to-own stores…you know, the kind of stores you rarely see on every other corner in middle class White neighborhoods. In short, all the businesses endemic of profiteering and structural poverty…the same businesses that like to follow innocent Black people around in stores for no reason. The businesses that won’t hire many of the Black people living in the neighborhoods they’re profiting off of. The businesses that charge twice as much for the same goods & services that are half as expensive in White neighborhoods
THOSE are the businesses that typically get burned in impoverished neighborhoods. Now, while I’m not necessarily advocating riots, I will repeat the words of Martin Luther King Jr, “I think that we’ve got to see that a riot is the language of the unheard”
Second, Other than corporate media outlets repeating what the police are telling them, I haven’t seen much hard evidence of honest to God unprovoked “rioting”…but what I have seen is lots of white police firing tear gas and rubber bullets at peaceful protesters. I’ve seen militarized police aim guns, tanks and sound cannons at unarmed civilians in their own neighborhoods. I’ve seen police not interviewing, but arresting key witnesses. I’ve seen people getting gassed in their homes—THEIR HOMES—for committing the crime of what, being Black at home?
The media goes on and on about “looting and rioting” without focusing too much on the police’s strong-arm tactics, they’re complicit in furthering the ratings meme of “unreasonably angry Black people”. Black people have been the victims of mass theft, violence, and repression by the politicians, police, and capitalist elites of this country for hundreds of years, including in an escalated fashion over the past few decades with the advent of the so-called “war on drugs.”
If you think the problems in St. Louis BEGAN last week with a riot that smashed up a store, then you REALLY don’t understand the reality of the conditions faced by Black people in that city and throughout this country. The political and economic structures of white supremacy have been conducting a RIOT against the lives and communities of Black people for a long, long time. You just haven’t been paying attention to THAT violence until your local mall gets shut down.
Your school was on lock-down? Thousands of schools in Black neighborhoods all over the country have been SHUT DOWN in the past few years by politicians who claim there is no money in the budget while they simultaneously spend millions of dollars buying machine guns, tanks, and aerial drones for the local police forces. Not to mention the constant building of new prisons; tax breaks for corporations and the rich; etc., etc.
Look at these evil businesses profiteering and causing structural poverty in Ferguson.
Who knew a Quick Trip was oppressing black neighborhoods so badly? We should just burn them all down I suppose. Fight the power and whatnot.
Let’s take a look at what “the corporate media outlets are repeating from the police,” shall we…
Nothing to see here. Just eating a big bite hotdog to replenish my energy so I can loot well on through the night.
Since when do peaceful protesters start wearing bandannas and shirts to conceal their faces? Is this a new thing?
Here’s an idea, how about you stop using this shooting to proclaim how oppressed African Americans are? Violent protests and civil unrest are only harming this community more. These morons are doing no one any favors by acting like hooligans.
UPDATE 15 - Autopsy and the cops story revisited
ALL updates at the bottom (most plausible timeline of events included in #4)
I will be updating this, check for new version here to reblog and delete the old one.
Story goes a cop saw Michael Brown walking in middle of the street and approached, still unaware of the robbery. Then he got the call abotu a description from a robbery. The cop claims after he stopped and took the guy into his car he struggled and reached for his gun and a shot was fired. Others give different accounts from the cop just executed him for no reason to he tried to drag him through the driver seat window LOL. Lets not forget the police said the cop was in the hospital with a busted jaw and swollen eye in their press conference.
>strong arm robbery
>fleeing felon (leaving crime scene)
>assault on an officer after confronted
>attempt to take his gun
he didnt do anything to die waa he did nothing wrong
>world defends him and try to justify it all
If only people had waited for the facts to come out and let the investigation happen instead of freak the fuck out and “demand justice or no peace” thus halting any investigation while people rioted and looted for 4 days resulting in a death, a drive by, over a dozen looted stores, burned cars and a store and shootings all over lmao.
Every single person that defended this guy, and the looters and protesters and every single idiot that supported this shit shit on facebook and twitter, each and every single one of you are fucking morons.
There are much better things to be concerned about and protest and give world attention to.
From the look of things and the police report, its looking like Michael Brown was indeed the guy in the footage and might have actually tried to take the gun off the got and got shot. Investigation is still on going.
Some excuses on twitter and shit trying to run MAXIMUM damage control (and failing)
>thats not him
>who cares it was just some cheap shit
>doesnt look like a robbery to me
>I dont believe its him and you cant change my mind
>faked by police after the fact
Needless to say all the leftist media and mentally ill SJW liberals are mad as fuck.
Butt status #REKT
Looks like one of the biggest witnesses to the shooting death of Michael Brown is also the guy who was with him in the robbery LOL
MUH CREDIBLE WITNESSES WHY WOULD ANYONE LIE!
Here are some highlights of events from the first night of the riots and looting with pics. This was all sourced from at the time, live streams and police scanners and people on twitter at the scene.
