See it ain’t just me, David Banner woke….

Because we, by white people standards, were meant to be saved as we were uncivilized. Christianity was their benevolent way of saving us. They also used it to teach practices of servitude.

In a segment Monday night on The O’Reilly Factor, host Bill O’Reilly claimed the left supported marijuana legalization because children “in certain ghetto neighborhoods” were using the drug.
The Fox News host was responding to the New York Times’ call for the legalization of marijuana.
Joined by anti-legalization advocate Kevin Sabet, O’Reilly said that “the left” has claimed that marijuana is harmless and that they are concerned that “the blacks” are being trapped by drug laws.
“Look, the left is basically saying ‘harmless,’ okay, which I don’t agree with, I think you know that. Not a harmless substance, alright,” O’Reilly explained. “And, it’s blacks, you know, because in certain ghetto neighborhoods it’s part of the culture. nine-year-old boys and girls are smoking it, and they don’t like that. They don’t want those kids to be targeted by the cops.”
O’Reilly did not note that, although black and white Americans use marijuana at about the same rates, African Americans are arrested at nearly four times the rate of whites for marijuana possession.
Taking his cue from O’Reilly, Sabet added, “The last thing poor communities need is another substance. Actually, there are eight times as many liquor stores in communities of color in this country. Why would we want to add another..” before O’Reilly began talking over him.
As O’Reilly guest Stephen Gutwillig, from the Drug Policy Alliance, attempted to explain that the changes advocated by the Times were not about encouraging use, but “controlling marijuana in a different way,” O’Reilly cut him off.
“Look, you know the unintended consequence of legalization of anything is to send a message to children that it’s socially acceptable, ” O’Reilly lectured. “I mean, any parent who is smoking marijuana in front of the child is abusing the child, in my opinion. And now you have pot shops, you’re going to buy it at 7-11? It’s insane.”
😒

I just— There are no words. What an ignorant racist piece of shit.

As someone who have lived in both predominantly black and white neighborhoods, white children are taking way more drugs than black kids.  They sell drugs on the yellow school bus.  They start taking drugs in middle school (7th and 8 grade) and the bathroom is normally the place of choice to get high.  The amount of heroine overdoses for young people in GA is startling. My cousin who also lives in a white neighborhood had four of his son’s high school friends die of a heroine overdose.  Bill O’Reilly loves the narrative that all black people do is smoke weed and live off the government even though it’s false.  I’m linking this article regarding the heroine issue because I’m sure someone will want to dispute it.   http://www.wsbtv.com/news/news/local/heroin-addiction-plagues-georgia-suburbs/ndGzy/

spoke the truth. My white classmates from middle school were function alcoholics, potheads, coke heads, pill poppers by sophomore year came around but they started in middle school. People love the present the narrative of the deviant black youth, while “conveniently” overlooking the problematic behaviour of white youth. Y’all can miss me with that bs.

#YOOOOO #THISSSSSSSSS

I still can’t believe with all the commentary that has been written on the problems of this post, people are still re blogging this without even a second thought. The purpose of the second picture is not to bring to light Obama’s cooperation with the Nigerian government in using drone style tactics in the North? Is it talking about the new drone base in Niger, the use of drones in Somalia? Is this a reference to Obama’s hypocrisy as he continues to knowingly allow American companies and nationals to trade arms and pillage the eastern DRC after decades of US policy that deliberately sold billions of dollars worth of arms to all countries involved in the conflict, arguably to make the nation easier to exploit? No, it isn’t even referencing Obama’s aggression in the African continent, talk-less of the problems US Imperialism will cause in our country (Nigeria). You want our solidarity, but then you think you have the right to co-opt our political movements to discuss your issues, which you deem to more important. There is a way to call Barack Obama (and Michelle Obama too, because of course she must know that this image will be used to mobilize support for any possible “humanitarian intervention” in Nigeria) without showing this total disregard for Black African lives. When you do things like this it just shows how great your disregard for Black African life is. This is a Nigerian political movement about Nigerians and our country. This is an incredibly important thing, to see such a strong wave of political consciousness ripple through our nation (especially when we have developed such an apathetic attitude to our corrupt leaders and political system). I am beyond tired of seeing people co-opt this to discuss their own issues, it is incredibly disrespectful. What even is the meaning of that sign? Boko Haram have been killing thousands of men, women and children in the most violent and brutal of ways for the past four years. They use sexual violence as a weapon, but according to this sign that is not worth discussing because the suffering of Nigerians is deemed lesser than those who have suffered under under the drone policy (not even acknowledging the use of drones in the African continent)? Do the lives of Black Africans mean anything to you people at all? So shameless with your anti-blackness you don’t even attempt to hide it anymore.

Hate crime maps reveal the most prejudiced places in America

At least 6,593 hate crimes occurred in 2012, according to hate crime data compiled by the University of Michigan.

The maps below reveal where different groups are most likely to be victims of hate crimes. Each county is colored based on its hate crime rate, the number of hate crimes per 100,000 residents in 2012. The worst offenders and their hate crime rates are called out in each map.

We’re looking at you Boise.
