Glenn Broadnax, a 35-year-old black man from Brooklyn, was unarmed on the night of September 14 when NYPD officers shot at him in the middle of Times Square, striking two bystanders.
Instead of apologizing, the New York Times reports that the city has charged Broadnax ”with assault, on the theory that he was responsible for bullet wounds suffered by two bystanders.”
Broadnax was emotionally disturbed and dodging cars in the middle of the street when officers say he reached into his pocket to grab what they believed was a weapon, prompting them to open fire. His lawyers says he was reaching for his wallet.So, because the NYPD is made up of trigger happy, crappy marksmen who fire at unarmed black people with impunity, Broadnax might spend up to 25 years in prison on trumped up assault charges, which the Manhattan district attorney insisted on.… Meanwhile, the two cops who did the shooting are on desk duty pending an investigation. If the past is any indication, that means they will be back on the streets in no time.
On January 10, 2013, Erika Andiola and her family were at home spending time with each other. That evening, someone knocked on the door, and as Erika answered, the first thing she saw was an ICE officer handcuffing her brother, who had been outside talking to a neighbor. Another ICE officer stood in front of Erika asking for Guadalupe, her mother.
Erika asked the officer if he had a warrant and why they were taking her family. He answered that they were undocumented and had to go. The officers detained her mother before driving away.
Out of nowhere and in an instant, Erika and her younger brother were left alone in the living room, forcibly separated from their closest family. Erika is a national leader of immigrant youth; her story and activism are well-known. Recently, President Obama and ICE announced they would not deport individuals without a criminal record, yet our families continue to be torn apart every day. If this could happen to Erika, it could happen to anyone else.
End Guadalupe’s deportation now. Help us keep Erika’s family together by signing the petition.

"People are giving me s— for marrying someone younger than I am. Tim is mature, responsible, loving, & kind. Way to judge people, Internet."
- Former Boy Meets World star Danielle Fishel, lashing out against haters criticizing her recent marriage to 25-year-old Tim Belusko, on Twitter
How old is SHE even? NO guy her age would get blinked at for marrying a 25 year old. Ugh.
High five Topanga. You go Topanga.
She’s 32. That’s a whopping 7-year age difference. **clutches pearls**
Well, I guess you got me there. *side eyes*
I used to live on St. Thomas, Virgin Islands, so it’s safe to say that White people are the minority there.
But guess what?
I was prepped to…
- never speak like an islander
- don’t think about dreading your hair
- no tats.
- Follow Jesus Christ
- Be as non-threatening to Whites as possible.
You want to know who I interned for? A White man who told me the exact opposite:
- Do what makes you feel comfortable.
- Speak up for yourself.
- Learn the rules so you can break them.
- Be the change you want to be in the world.
He wasn’t on the “save the world” complex, he was trying to help me be the best me, not the me that the majority of my teachers was trying to shape me up to be.
So, yeah… it’s not possible to be racist against White people when we were prepped to please y’all in the first place.
Yes… you think you can just hit me with something I can’t relate to, and yet I can, just not in the way you’re expecting…
… but alas… if you’re looking for better answers than my personal experiences (which by the way, people LOVE to discount.).
Get outta here, with ya straw man defense.
Answer to original question: No.
Actually, you can be racist against any race.
Here is the definition of racism via Merriam Webster dictionary:
rac·ismnoun \ˈrā-ˌsi-zəm also -ˌshi-\
: poor treatment of or violence against people because of their race
Full Definition of RACISM12: racial prejudice or discriminationSo, Whites can be racist. Blacks can be racist. Japanese can be racist. EVERYONE can be racist. You can even be racist against your own kind (which i call “reverse racism,” but i doubt that’s a technical term).All you have to do to be racist is believe that one race is better than another, or treat a certain race poorly, or have a prejudice against a race, no matter what it is.
You lost me at “actually”.
You shown me that you can copy and paste from a dictionary. Congrats. Now use the same definition in a sentence.
White people suffers from racism because they are subjected to Black bankers’ discrimination practices.
I got another one.
White people faced racism when going into Chinese neighborhoods because they are charged 15% more for goods and services.
And last, but not least.
White people faced racism because Black people’s ideals of beauty are bestowed on them from every media outlet.
I want you to tell me… is that how you would use racism in a sentence?
Instead of me telling you what is wrong with the sentences, use your common sense.

Dumb nigger - 0
This is what was in the OP’s About me
"I am 38 years old, white, slim, mixture of black / grey hair and live in England.
I have been naturally dominant all my life and have been dominating women since I started dating them.
I have had subs and slaves of all races. I do not just take black girls, but they are a pet love of mine, hence this blog.
White dominance over black submission is very real and very natural. You don’t need to be a white supremacist to appreciate that white countries are superior to black countries, white people have more power than black people and middle class white societies have a far better reputation than black neighbourhoods.
Every race IQ survey puts blacks last of the major demographics and black problems with crime and violence in their communities are universally recognised.
Every black country ranks lower in international tables for things like quality of life, life expectancy, democracy and human rights than any white First World country.
All of this helps to give white people a natural feeling of superiority over blacks which is not based on mindless race-hate, but a simple observation of the natural order of things.
Not all blacks are thugs and drug dealers of course. Some blacks are intelligent and law abiding but collectively as a people they remain the lowest rung on the modern human ladder in all measurable ways. As such, owning a black slave feels natural for both dominant white and submissive black.
Black women can be forceful and stubborn and have an attitude. They can be strong-willed and need more breaking in than other girls. White girls usually have far less fight in them.
In some respects, black women are no different to all women. Inside them is usually a little girl who never grew up. All grown women need a daddy figure at some point in their life. Modern feminism has taught them never to admit it, but it doesn’t stop it being true.
In many black communities, the daddy figure is one of power and authority. He is almost mythical for many black girls - the problem of absent fathers in black families is well documented.
On top of feminism, modern black women have extra pressure to be things like ‘strong’, ‘independent’ and ‘do things for themselves’. They are taught they don’t need men for anything.
But every woman, black or otherwise, needs a man to guide her, hold her, discipline her and own her. Nature has no time for feminism…
Society is aware of the phenomenon of lower class white women being attracted to black men. But it rarely talks about how black women in white countries are attracted to white men. They are. In large numbers.
Not that many white men are into black women though. I think that’s a shame. They have much to offer. They are fiercely loyal, they have a passion to please their man and they are fun as hell to beat and fuck.
To sum up, I don’t ‘play’ at BDSM or S&M. Being dominant is part of who I am. My girls call me ‘Master’, ‘Sir’, ‘Daddy’ etc. as a sign of respect and because it helps them to know their place. But at heart I am simply a man. And like all men, I need women to complete me.
I do not tolerate those submissive women who think that a dominant man is there to please THEM and satisfy their fantasies. I require women who get their pleasure and self-fulfilment from pleasing me.
When we have sex, I do not usually care if you cum. I care if I do. And you should too. A woman is there to make a man’s life better. Not worse. My needs are important. Your needs…are my needs.
You are not my equal. What’s more, you don’t want to be my equal. No woman could truly submit to a man she was equal to or superior to.
You may be a smart, successful black career woman to the outside world. But deep inside you is a little nigger whore who wants to kneel naked at the feet of a white man and lick his boots. Or have him put you over his lap and spank you hard enough to make you cry your eyes out…
A part of me is cruel. I want to hurt you and see you cry. You want that too. You know that your marks and tears are my way of saying I love you.
I can be gentle and loving if I am in the mood. If I’m not in the mood, then you probably did something wrong. So do something about it…

I was thinking that lol
A faculty member at Minneapolis Community and Technical College, Shannon Gibney, received a formal reprimand for her handling of a discussion about structural racism in her Introduction to Mass Communication course.
According to Gibney inan interview with City College News, a white male student asked her, “Why do we have to talk about this in every class? Why do we have to talk about this?”
She claims she was shocked, because “[h]is whole demeanor was very defensive. He was taking it personally. I tried to explain, of course, in a reasonable manner — as reasonable as I could given the fact that I was being interrupted and put on the spot in the middle of class — that this is unfortunately the context of 21st century America.”
Gibney says another white male student followed the first, saying “Yeah, I don’t get this either. It’s like people are trying to say that white men are always the villains, the bad guys. Why do we have to say this?”
When Gibney attempted, again, to inform the students that they were mistaking a systemic critique for a personal attack, the students continued to argue. Eventually, she told them that “if you’re really upset, feel free to go down to legal affairs and file a racial harassment discrimination complaint.” This is exactly what they did.
Gibney is familiar with white male students taking discussions about structural racism as personal attacks, as it has happened before: ina 2009 incident, an editor of the school newspaper took offense at a similar discussion. In both that case and this one, Gibney received an official reprimand. After the latest accusation, the Vice President of Academic Affairs appended a letter to her file, in which he said he found it “it troubling that the manner in which you led a discussion on the very important topic of of structural racism alienated two students who may have been most in need of learning about this subject.”
“While I believe it was your intention to discuss structural racism generally,” he continued, “it was inappropriate for you to single out white male students in class. Your actions in [targeting] select students based on their race and gender caused them embarrassment and created a hostile learning environment.”
Gibney told lawyers at an investigatory meeting for an anti-discrimination lawsuit she and six other professors are filling against MCTC that the vice president’s words “have helped those three white male students succeed in undermining my authority as one of the few remaining black female professors here.”
There’s a lot of irony in this story. In the students’ subsequent freak out about feeling “singled out” about structural racism they went over her head and tried to get the professor fired…indicating structural racism.

I see the problem since slavery TRADE ended
Black Man never regained Consciousness
We get the people wrong for government
Who force us to think with colonial sense
Now wrong information scatter your head
You REJECT your CULTURE for western SENSE

The Alnwick Poison Garden is pretty much what you’d think it is: a garden full of plants that can kill you (among many other things). Some of the plants are so dangerous that they have to be kept behind bars. [x]
