I guess it’s sexist to blame Hillary for Hillary Clinton’s loss!

From the Daily Beast here:

Hillary didn’t seem all that surprised. ‘I knew it. I knew this would happen to me….’ Hillary said, now within a couple of inches of his face. ‘They were never going to let me be president.’”

Oh boy.

Syrians love being stoned and tortured into the Dark Ages

From the Guardian:

Syrian refugees don’t ‘want to go to US’, envoy says in defense of Trump ban

Somebody finally pointed out the irony of Trump’s missile chucking into Syria.

He could give a flying fuck about Syrian people, or any non-white people for that matter. He’s let in 11 Syrian refugees thus far this year.

Who’s the animal Donald?

Only in Alabama can a black youth do life in prison for a murder committed by police

From the Root here:

In early March, Lakeith Smith, 18, was convicted of felony murder, burglary and theft for helping in the 2015 break-ins of two homes in Millbrook, Ala.

Smith was only 15 years old when he and a group of cohorts were confronted by police after being accused of breaking and entering.

His friend, A’Donte Washington, was killed by police that night, shot four times for allegedly brandishing a gun.

Yet under Alabama’s accomplice liability law, Smith was not only tried as an adult but also charged in A’Donte’s death, even though it was a cop’s bullet that ended the 16-year-old’s life.

This is the epitome of fucked in the head.

This makes no sense, it’s bullshit.

A black kid does life for breaking into somebody’s house.  If this law was applied to a white teenager white folks would be up in arms.

Two freak nuggets about China

I just finished The China Hustle and two scenes really stuck with me.

One of the lead characters says the following:

“There are no honest Chinese accountants exposing Chinese corporate fraud because the government will shoot them in the fucking head.”

Secondly, there is no law in China against Chinese citizens committing fraud against outside of China.  It’s not illegal to rip off Americans.

So I know anybody that Trump is fighting with is a friend of yours but you should realize there is a lot of illegal, unethical, foul, racist and exploitative shit that goes on in China.

If you don’t believe me check out this documentary.

How about you can’t kill a black man for selling/stealing cigars/cigarettes or breaking into cars?

From CBS News here:

SACRAMENTO, Calif. — Several lawmakers and the family of a 22-year-old unarmed black man who was fatally shot by police last month proposed Tuesday that California become the first state to significantly restrict when officers can open fire. The legislation would change the standard from using “reasonable force” to “necessary force.”

I could give a shit if Stephon Clark was stealing cars and I don’t care if Eric Garner was selling loose cigarettes and I don’t care if Michael Brown did or did not steal cigars from a 7-11 store.

Who gives a shit what OJ has to say about Colin Kaepernick?

From NBC News here:

O.J. Simpson, whose murder trial tugged at racial tensions across America, says he believes football player Colin Kaepernick “made a bad choice” when he decided to keep kneeling during the national anthem to protest police brutality.

“I think Colin made a mistake,” Simpson told the Buffalo News this week in his first substantial interview in a decade. “I really appreciate what he was trying to say. I thought he made a bad choice in attacking the flag.”

This is a classic strategy — using one African American man to attack another.

OJ Simpson is no more qualified to speak about Colin Kaepernick than a random person on the street.  In fact, some might say OJ is an unconvicted murderer and more than ethically challenged.

But it’s great for racist assholes who want to take Kaepernick down to associate him with OJ.

I can see how there might be anti-police race riots in the near future

From the Guardian here:

A protest and a community meeting are planned for Monday at the location where an unarmed black man with his trousers around his ankles was killed by a Texas police officer.

Danny Ray Thomas appeared to be experiencing a mental health crisis when he was shot dead last month by a deputy with the Harris county sheriff’s office who encountered the 34-year-old walking on a north Houston street.

“Until our local officials put policies in place that will discipline officers for shooting an unarmed man, we will continue to see these things,” said Tarsha Jackson, criminal justice director of the Texas Organizing Project, an advocacy group.

These multiple shootings in the age of the internet could bring on violence towards police.

I’m a white guy and I can’t believe the police in Sacramento shot a black man with a cell phone in the back in his backyard.  These shootings are not going to go without repercussions.
