"I’m not racist because I say so!"
white folks (via eshusplayground)
I'm a fat gay black nerd and these posts reflect some of the things I'm interested in. Be warned not every thing that piques my interest is safe for work.
Whites riot over pumpkins in NH and Twitter turns it into epic lesson about Ferguson, aka Black Twitter Wins Again (with some nice Ally Assists), aka The Best of #PumpkinFest, PT 2. #staywoke
Here’s the video of the truck being flipped over. I witnessed it happen.
Fuck my school.
THIS is where tear gas and rubber bullets would, in fact, have been justified. Welcome, even.
While we’re on the subject of white people rioting, flashback to 2012.
Remember Penn State two years ago? When those crackers overturned a fucking news van? All because they were pissy about Joe Paterno being axed for enabling a child rapist?
"I now believe the most dangerous time for a woman with online visibility is the point at which others are seen to be listening, “following”, “liking”, “favoriting”, retweeting. In other words, the point at which her readers have (in the troll’s mind) “drunk the Koolaid”. Apparently, that just can’t be allowed.
From the hater’s POV, you (the Koolaid server) do not “deserve” that attention. You are “stealing” an audience. From their angry, frustrated point of view, the idea that others listen to you is insanity. From their emotion-fueled view you don’t have readers you have cult followers. That just can’t be allowed.
You must be stopped. And if they cannot stop you, they can at least ruin your quality of life. A standard goal, in troll culture, I soon learned, is to cause “personal ruin”. They aren’t all trolls, though. Some of those who seek to stop and/or ruin you are misguided/misinformed but well-intended. They actually believe in a cause, and they believe you (or rather the Koolaid you’re serving) threatens that cause."
