Changing Views of Race in America

movie

So, when I was growing up, I used to be scared when the theater would fill up with too many black people. During the 2000’s, when rap movies were coming out all over the place, like Get Rich or Die Tryin, Hustle & Flow, Notorious, and then even when the should-be-inspirational black film Pride came out, the theaters in my hometown always had problems. Gang fights, shootings, stabbings – always at black movies. I’ve even been harassed for being gay by the black people in my hometown in a movie theater.  (for real, the mall in my hometown, where our largest theater is, had to instate an no hoods policy so security cameras can pick up everyones faces, and even banned anyone under 18 from being in the mall/theaters alone after 9pm without an adult present.
The violence got that bad.)

Because of that, anytime I started to see the theater fill up with mostly black people, I would get nervous. I didn’t want to deal a fight. I didn’t want to be harassed. I didn’t want trouble. I just wanted to see a movie.

However, the other week I saw the new 47 Meters Down, which… who doesn’t love a good shark movie?

47 meters down

 

The storyline was horrible, but who cares – it was sharks eating people.

Anyways… The point is this – So pretty much everyone in the audience but me and my friend was black. And yet, rather than being afraid, I actually felt safe. I was like, “Well, right now it’s white people who are shooting up movie theaters, so if it’s a theater of me and all black people, I feel like I’m going to be ok.”

And then I thought about how weird that is. That black people used to make me afraid, and now, white people make me afraid.

And then I thought about how fucked up and sad America is.

And then I thought about much I hate humans for murdering each other in general.

And then I got sad.

 

Anyways, just a little rambling from inside my mind. Make of it what you will, I’m just putting it out there,

The Hypocrisy of Liberals

hipster

So, as always, i feel I need to start this post by reminding everyone that I am not a Trump supporter and I will not vote him in 2020, nor do I support the alt-right. It’s sad that anytime you question someone these days, they assume you’re the enemy, or “the other side.”

However, I do need to do some liberal bashing right now. The topic today is drugs. 

Exhibit A: Liberals are all up in arms about the problems at the border, and are all about helping the disenfranchised.

Exhibit B: The illegal drug trade from in South and Central America, that trickles into Mexico and then the US is a huge problem that contributes to these issues.

Exhibit C: Liberals do drugs.

So, liberals… CAN YOU EXPLAIN YOURSELF TO ME PLEASE? 

hmm

And yes, I’m aware that “Pot should be legal” and I also understand that you “Just do MDMA sometimes at the club” or “A little cocaine at special occasions…

But here’s the thing. Pot isn’t legal for the most part yet, so buying it contributes to the drug trade. Don’t believe me? In 2017, a man was murdered in front of my house in Cambridge, MA over a pot deal gone wrong. It happens. Stop lying to yourself you selfish cunts who don’t deserve shit.

And sure, maybe you only do MDMA or coke sometimes…. but every other liberal like you also does it sometimes, and when you have a country of 300 million only doing drugs “sometimes” you wind up with a market that has a nonstop demand.

And especially to people of color – The rhetoric these days coming from people of color about the hardships faced by minority neighborhoods. The drugs, the poverty, the gangs, the poor education, the cops being against you – And yet, you’re participating in the illegal drug trade too! HOW ARE YOU NOT ASHAMED EVERY TIME YOU OPEN YOUR MOUTH TO JUDGE OTHER PEOPLE?

And what upsets me the most is that people who read this won’t care. In 2019, people (on both sides) are so full of themselves, so self-obsessed, so pious, so fucking delusional, that they’re not able to recognize their own flaws. They believe themselves to be the good guys, and anyone who questions them is OBVIOUSLY simply the bad guy…

 

So remember liberals, when you spark up your joint on Friday night, remember that tweet you sent out protesting the dispute at the border on Monday… and hopefully, you’ll recognize that you’re a total piece of shit hypocrite.

Trumpism is Terrifying, And I Have Proof

cunt

So, a few days ago Trump held a rally and once again got the audience to start cheering “Lock Her Up!”  Why? Who knows, he won the 2016 election against Hilary, and she isn’t running in 2020, so the unending belligerence is beyond me. But, as hopefully most of you know by now, Trump is a cunt, and that’s the real reason why he can’t stop.

He’s a power-hungry ego-maniac who, incredibly, is actually insanely stupid. Question for all you Americans – If we were to ask Trump what the capital of Washington was, do you think he’d actually know? I fully believe that he’s just a rambling lunatic who is only where he is because of the team that props him up everyday.  The same team that preys upon America’s stupid, hateful, fearful, and greedy.

 

Ok, so here’s what happened:  You’ve all heard by now that social media platforms sell your information to advertisers, right? No shock there. So, sometimes I like to go on Trump’s Facebook page and troll him because social media seems to be the only platform he actually pays attention to. In light of the drone bombing, I had made a comment saying something like, “It’s funny how a few days ago Trump claimed he solved the Iran problem, stating ‘Iran used to say I hate America, I don’t hear them saying that anymore!’ and then the next day they blow one of our drones out of the sky.”

Then, after that I go onto a website called IMPAwards, which is a database of newly-released movie posters, because I love movies… and this ad pops up:

87D6C19F-5BEC-4C9A-9E2E-75F7CD151650

 

Ok, my first problem is that this ad says nothing about the white men who have been doing things like shooting up churches, stabbing people on Portland trains, shooting up synagogues, running people over in Virginia, shooting up colleges, shooting up high schools, shooting up elementary schools, and mailing bombs to CNN….

My second problem is that this ad literally forgot to add the word BORDER.
THEY CAN’T EVEN SPELL PROPERLY! 

White trash Trump supporters can’t even proofread their own advertisements!

AND THE BIG PROBLEM HERE is the targeted advertising in our current age. For me, I travel a lot and love different cultures and geography and such. I’ve never had a problem with targeted advertising because it means that all the ads I see on websites are for Virgin Atlantic, Outward Bound, Hawaii Tourism, and things like that. But this just perfectly showed me that there’s a problem with it: It saw I visited Trump’s Facebook page and threw in this ad…

But imagine if you’re a conservative? And your search history is filled with Fox News, Trump’s Facebook page, and InfoWars – ads like this must be as normal for them as Virgin Atlantic ads are to me! This kind of crazy shit is being fed to Trump supporters every single day, only making them think that their insane views are normal and acceptable and applaudable.

I’m very scared for 2020

My New Roommate is a Trump Supporter…

maga

 

So, I know a lot of you think I’m a republican now after I’ve written some posts about how the left is getting super obnoxious.  However, I’m not. I’m very, very liberal. I just hate that the left has started putting everyone into shallow boxes just like the right.

However, even though I’m not a republican, my new roommates is.

And it’s literally nauseating.

It’s a beautiful day in Manhattan, and I went for a nice walk to soak up all the wonderful sun. However, when I arrived home I found my new roommate in the living room with whatever white trash friend he’s managed to make in this city.

And here is just a collection of fun things I got to hear in my own apartment..

“If my boss was super gay, I wouldn’t work for him….”  (does he not know I’m gay?)

“My friend knows this guy in Texas who told him that this girl had a baby and then killed it and called it abortion and got away with it because of liberals…” (How fast can my eyes roll?)

“If a man is in a coma, liberals say we should be able to kill him…but if I walked in with a gun and shot him, it would be considered murder… how fucked up is that?” 

“Sentient means consciousness”  (It doesn’t)

“The liberal media has totally brainwashed the left.” (This is from the guy who exclusively watches Fox News…)

Liberals are elitists who made it improbable for white people from middle America to work their way up the economic ladder… Like, I could never get into these elite schools now!”…. (2 minutes later) “Liberals are socialists who are trying to make everyone equal….even though I work harder than people who work at McDonalds!”  (Elitist socialists…WAY TO GO DUDE!)

At that point I had to leave my apartment again, because I literally couldn’t handle it. I was 10 seconds away from losing my fucking mind.

And so, this is my new life.

Ladies and gentlemen, set your countdown clock, because it is only a matter of time before I lose my fucking shit.

Ready.

Set.

Go.

Why I hate East Coast Liberals

hipster

So, for starters I’m going to say, I’m liberal. I’m like, super, super beyond liberal. Having lived in countries like Canada, Australia and New Zealand, I’ve seen that a high minimum wage, universal healthcare, gun control, and strong social services for the underprivileged not only are possible, but they work. And they create strong, healthy, happy countries, with good stable economies. 

Don’t believe me? Here’s a few links for various studies.  Feel free to alert me when you’ve found America on any of these lists (But lets be real here, Republicans won’t believe anything besides Fox News anyways…so this is probably pointless)

CNBC

CNN

Telegraph

Global Peace Index

 

But anyways, I’m a stark raging liberal. However, I’m not a fucking idiot. And because I’m not an idiot, I have to let everyone know that I fucking hate East Coast Liberals. 

I’m at a cafe right now on the Upper West Side, and there are two obnoxious spoiled, privileged, Jewish liberals next to me saying the dumbest shit in the entire world. Here’s a small selection:

“Oh my God, you know who I love? Beto O’Rourke! He’s the next president.”

“I’m going to visit one of the refugee camps down south and interview LGBTQ migrants, because really, they’re a group that’s been ignored in the zeitgeist.”

“I’m taking a trip to Texas to visit southern synagogues because, like, life is different down in Texas, and I want to see what it’s like.  Do you know that there aren’t as many Jewish people down in Texas? Isn’t that strange?”

“You know it’s wrong when someone sees a white baby with a non-white mother pushing the stroller, and they assume it’s the baby’s nanny. It’s totally internalized racism!”

And the list goes on… in fact they’re still next to me. And I sort of want to kill them. Let’s unpack some of these quotes shall we? Examine where everything is going wrong with liberals these days.

 

Quote 1:

“Oh my God, you know who I love? Beto O’Rourke! He’s the next president.” 

hip

Ok, east coast liberals, listen up… up until this most recent election cycle, you had no fucking idea who Beto O’Rourke was. So can democrats please stop acting like he’s the Godsend you’ve all been waiting for? Besides, look at your track record with other democrats…you’ll just end up hating him anyways.

Don’t believe me?

Remember when you loved Hilary Clinton?  Do you love her now?  No. You all hate her.

Remember when you all loved Bill Clinton? Do you love him now?  No. You think he’s a sex offender.

Remember when you all loved Elizabeth Warren? Do you still love her now? No. You all hate her, and you actually turned on her quite quickly, considering that she’s actually a wonderful politician.

Remember when you all loved Nancy Pelosi? Yeah… ya’ll are turning on her pretty fast these days…

What’s the bottom line here? It’s this: Liberals demand across-the-board-perfection from their politicians (which is fucking hilarious considering that human perfection is impossible. And it’s a standard that none of you liberals even hold yourselves to). So, democrats will continue to burn down their own castle over dumb shit, and Trump will win again in 2020, because even though republicans are fucking selfish idiots, they at least have the power to agree in the name of winning elections.

 

Quote #2

“I’m going to visit one of the refugee camps down south and interview LGBTQ migrants, because really, they’re a group that’s been ignored in the zeitgeist.” 

hip1

Is it important to hear stories of diverse individuals?  Yes. But is it also SO INSANELY STUPID AND WRONG for some group of over-privileged Jews from Uptown Manhattan to go run down and “save” these poor lost puppies (Oh, I’m sorry…no they’re humans… it’s just that you treat them like lost puppies.) And you do all this simply because it will help your own social status.  You don’t just go hunt down LGBTQ migrants solely to use them for their oppression status if you’re actually a genuine person. Minorities are not a prop for you to use to increase your social standing you selfish fucking cunts. Stay in Manhattan and continue living off of daddy’s money. #Thanks.

 

Quote #3

“I’m taking a trip to Texas to visit southern synagogues because, like, life is different down in Texas, and I want to see what it’s like.  Do you know that there aren’t as many Jewish people down in Texas? Isn’t that strange?”

hip3

Again, democrats, you want to know why you’re going to lose the presidency again in 2020?  This is why. The fact that America is made up of 50 states, and you can only comprehend the lifestyles of people in about 5, maybe 10 at the very most, of those states, is why. Once again, these aren’t just props. Middle America isn’t just the setting to TV shows and novels. They’re actual states with actual people living there.

And if you want to live in your little bubbles in the big coastal cities and not even try to understand the rest of your own fucking country, then that’s fine. You can. You can be just as stupid and small minded as republicans are. THE PROBLEM HERE is that liberals are the ones who claim to be the educated party. The just party. The party of equality and diversity. But the fact that you see Texas as this strange new frontier with a lifestyle so bizarre that you can’t even fathom it…. that proves that you’re not the educated party filled with open-minded individuals. It shows you’re a bunch of fucking idiots who are no better than Republicans who look at New York and Los Angeles with complete blankness. So get off your high horse please.

 

Quote #4

“You know it’s wrong when someone sees a white baby with a non-white mother pushing the stroller, and they assume it’s the baby’s nanny. It’s totally internalized racism!” 

Gwen Stefani Is A Hot Mama in Harem Pants!

Another HUGE problem with liberals. Creating enemies out of everyone because you love stroking your own cocks at the very idea that you’re better than others.

Is it wrong that someone would assume a non-white mother could have a white baby? Sure. It’s ignorance, it’s a lack of knowledge of the world, it’s stupidity. It can be a lot of things. But by slapping the term RACIST on someone implies that there is a malicious intent on their part. It implies that they’re actively judging the mother BECAUSE OF HER SKIN COLOR.

But here’s another possibility: I used to work in a Pinkberry in Brentwood. The rich area of Los Angeles. Do you know how many hispanic nannies came in every single day with white woman’s babies? Sometimes, the rich white women would come in with the nanny! The mother would literally make the nanny push the pram! So, is it possible that someone is used to associating a non-white woman pushing a white baby in stroller as a nanny? YES ABSOLUTELY. But that isn’t racism. That isn’t the same as a person being like, “THAT WOMAN IS NON WHITE, SO SURELY SHE COULDN’T POSSIBLY BE A MOTHER! SHE MUST BE A NANNY!”

You’re confusing ignorance with hatred. And when you call ignorant people hateful people, then guess what, YOU ARE NOT GOING TO WIN THEM OVER. Its another great example of liberals shooting themselves in the foot and pushing others away, Purely because they’re so obsessed with feeling superior to others.

 

Ok, I need to get back to work now. I just had to rant otherwise my brain would have exploded.

Tolerance, and how much do I have to tolerate?

A general view of the Auschwitz fences during the 73rd

So, yesterday in class we read about the holocaust. Obviously, a horrible subject. Macabre, horrific, inhumane. It’s one of the worst atrocities that has ever happened.

Discussion began, and your typical scenario unfolds… The Jewish people in the class are deeply hurt and cry while reading passages (which, they have a right to). And then a woman with german heritage (which, don’t most white people in America have German heritage?) she says something like, “My ancestors could have been the ones who did this”, and then she cries. And i’m like…. OK… you can cry… but, now it’s starting to get a bit showboaty.

And then came the moment that angered the fuck out of me,

We have a Muslim guy in our class. Who he is and what he does and where his money comes from are all very “sketch” if you don’t mind me saying so. He travels every weekend. Sometimes he misses class because he’s traveling. He claims it’s for “work”. Paid humanitarian work he says… which if anyone out there is like me and has tried to apply for paid humanitarian jobs, you know how scarce they are. Especially the well-paying ones that even pay for your travels around the globe.

And on top of this, he’s already said some really sketchy shit in class. The other week he was complaining about a professor and administrator at the University of Oklahoma who was pressured to resign after he wrote a book that said a bunch of fun things like:

~homosexuality is insanity, and a gross perversion.

~ Women shouldn’t wear pants, and if they do, its because they’re sluts, and “I don’t let the women in my household wear pants”, or anything besides long skirts.

~ Women shouldn’t vote

~ Black and Gender studies are a joke

~ Africans are silly little things….

This muslim guy in class is like, “Americans say they’re so open-minded, but then someone shares their opinions and suddenly he’s demonized for it? It’s so wrong!”

So far, my emotions towards what he says have ranged from:

roll1

to:

roll2


 

But yesterday was a whole new game being played. Once it was time for a class discussion, he was like, “You know genocide still happens to this day?”

Which, it does. Rwanda. The Congo Free State. Both examples of modern-day genocide.

But instead of the obvious, he goes, “Have any of you heard of what’s happening in East Turkistan in China?”

The class just stared at him blankly.

“You haven’t heard about this?!?” He yelled,  acting shocked.

***I had actually heard of this. If any of you have read my blog, you’ll know I was working in China this previous summer, and have visited Asia before***

It’s very controversial, but China is detaining members of a muslim group in Western China. The reason is because parts of this muslim minority belong to a violent terrorist group known as the Turkistan Islamic Party, which is allied with Al-Qaeda amongst others, and has performed deadly terrorist attacks in China, most notable the 2013 bombings, and the murder of a group of Chinese authorities.

As the kid in class spoke of the “genocide” against these people, his eyes teared up, he choked up, and he was like, “I was just there this weekend, trying to help the efforts.”

 

And I sat there, REALLY BITING MY TONGUE and wondering if this guy in class actually belonged to a terrorist group. Was I sitting 3 people away from a terrorist? 

He continued about the pain and suffering. And then, even went as far to say, “And it isn’t just in East Turkistan, I mean, even the Jewish people have performed genocide on the Palestinians!”

And at this point, I just went:

drop

 

 

Ok, let me say this. Is China the most trustworthy country on Earth?

ABSOLUTELY NOT.

If China gets its hands on people it fear may be in a terrorist group, I am 100% sure sketchy inhumane things will happen. Hands down. I’m not arguing with that. And ethically and morally, we would need a trial with evidence and find out how bad things are. I am not denying that.

But, to be comparing the capture terrorists and assumed terrorists (and sadly, even innocent people that China just deems to be a potential threat within that group) with the planned termination the Jewish people that was based on nothing besides blind hatred is wrong and insane. And it really makes me afraid of what this guy is like. 

And furthermore, to compare the Israeli-Palestinian conflict to the holocaust, while Jewish people are in the room crying…. ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? 

DO YOU HAVE NO FUCKING SHAME? 

And I’m sure the situation with this guy is probably similar to Republicans who read those far alt-right websites. He probably only reads extremely biased and hateful news. He probably reads story after story about the trials of the muslim people. He probably sees very little news of the real world. And therefore, in his mind, the entire world is probably skewed into a “They’re ALL against me and my people” mentality, which therefore gives him the blind confidence to march into a room with Jewish people, and tell them they’re basically Nazis.

It’s sad.

And I wanted to yell and scream and lose my shit so badly.

But, I kept my mouth shut. I didn’t want to start a fight. And I wouldn’t even know how to properly fight that sort of attitude. So I kept quiet.

And now, I’m thinking of all the things I SHOULD HAVE SAID but didn’t.

I wonder what will happen next week?
