Don’t ever fucking try to tell me that white people aren’t targeted and discriminated against for the color of their skin. Don’t ever try to fucking say that ANYONE has never been discriminated against. If you want fucking justice, then ACT on that justice.

HI UM NOPE
This headline is the deformed offspring of lies, bad reporting, and a Getty Image from 2012 taken after a man was beaten by police at the Occupy Wall Street protests.
The article cites no sources and reads like a Facebook Aunt telling a story they heard from their son’s buddy Taylor, most likely because it’s a poorly-paraphrased version of this also false article that calls itself ”White Man Cold-Cocked By Vicious Ferguson Mob In Blatant Racist Attack.” Money quote from the article:

“Most recently, a man was simply standing outside of a St. Louis McDonald’s where he was surrounded by a group of black man who punched the man in the face for no reason whatsoever. Seemingly unprovoked, the group intentionally targeted this man for nothing more than his skin color in a backwards attempt at justice for Mike Brown.”

Ah, yes, the classic “for no reason whatsoever” immediately followed by “for nothing more than his skin color in a backwards attempt at justice for Mike Brown” trick. That old reporting chestnut.
Anyway. The tale of an entire mob attacking this man was
followed up by showing these tweets, where the story originated:

This is all from the same article, mind you. There’s a paragraph describing a mob of black men attacking this white guy, and then they show the actual source describing a single black man punching the guy in the face once. Also? The Knockout Game doesn’t exist.
ALSO also?

So really, “Black Man Punches White Man In Face, Other Black Men Try To Apprehend Black Man Who Punched White Man In Face,” because Ferguson’s hero-to-asshole ratio is actually through the fucking roof.
And yet…

Anyway. It sucks that the guy got punched a couple weeks ago, but if you’re going to lie about it, try being just so much better at lying.

Cracked shouldn’t be the “journalists” catching this kind of thing. If you read something that sounds outrageous but tickles that part of your brain that wants it to be true, there’s a good chance it’s made up specifically to do that tickling. Take twenty minutes to research it before sharing or you sound like an idiot.

We can de-bullshit you on this kind of stuff but honestly it’s getting exhausting.

Not to be all SJW-y here, but this piece of news is false, people. - The Scandinavian one

Y’all want to be oppressed so bad y’all making up oppression for yourselves rofl

    She called Cornel West out, hard-body! I love me some sister souljah.

    I usually agree with Cornel West, and it was hard to hear whatever his arguments were in this video, but I have to point out this part of her speech in 1:13. Sister Souljah brings up a very, very good piece of history so little people know about. Right after the Civil War ended and Reconstruction began, there was a surge in ownership of property by African-American, a surge in elected local officials being African-American. Colleges were set up in that one space of ten years. There were incredible gains made.

    But then the military left, the Democrats retook the South, and the Ku Klux formed to bully and frighten people who threatened the ‘Southern’ way of life.

    If that surge had continued, I’m pretty sure that the descendents of African slaves would compromise one of the most politically powerful and financially powerful groups in America.

    India replaces the Ice Bucket Challenge with the much more sustainable Rice Bucket Challenge 

    After seeing the dramatic results from the Ice Bucket Challenge, Indian journalist Manju Latha Kalanidhi was compelled to start something similar, but with an Indian slant. “I felt like doing something more locally tangible. Rice is a staple here,” Kalanidhi told CNN. “We eat it every day, we can store it for months. Why not donate rice to someone who is hungry?”

    It’s fairly simpleFollow micdotcom

    Police brutality in Ferguson costs taxpayers millions.

    Over 10% of the local budget in Ferguson comes from court fees:

    Last year, Ferguson collected $2.6 million in court fines and fees. It was the city’s second-biggest source of income of the $20 million it collected in revenues.

    The police response in Ferguson over the last few weeks has been funded, in a large way, by the police in Ferguson giving people tickets, and then racking up court fees.  

    Just something to think about.
