Jordan Davis was shot and killed by Michael Dunn because he was a black teenager. The media called it the “loud music” murder because Michael Dunn demanded Jordan Davis lower his music at a gas station. When Jordan Davis refused, Michael Dunn did not shoot Jordan Davis because of loud music, Michael Dunn shot and killed Jordan Davis because Jordan Davis was a young black man who dared to “disrespect” Michael Dunn, a white man, by not catering to his demand. Once this happened, Michael Dunn wanted to live out a sick fantasy where he had “no choice” but to be a “hero.” He had to “shoot and kill” because the “thugs” were out to get him.
Michael Dunn is a racist. And, yesterday, a jury in Florida found him guilty of 3 out of 4 counts. However, that one count the jury could not decide on? That was the one that said he actually murdered a boy.
This will make many of you angry. It should. Even though Michael Dunn will be going to prison, yet another man has gotten away with murdering a black boy in the good ‘ole US of A.
However, some people (racists) out there are mad for a very different reason…they believe Michael Dunn is “innocent” (note: they’re saying innocent, not found “not guilty,” because there is a big fucking difference) and that killing a young black male is “doing nothing wrong”…
Sounds like that dude is just itching to be the next Michael Dunn.
If Michael Dunn is “innocent,” then who do they blame?
They blame Jordan Davis, the teen who was shot and killed because “I love the black community but that black boy asked Dunn to kill him when he played the black music too loud.”
They blame Jordan Davis’ friends who were in the car with Davis when they escaped death as Michael Dunn shot and killed Jordan Davis.
They blame the system, the media, you, me, everyone but Michael Dunn, the man who chose to shoot and kill a young black man.
Sometimes, to clarify the things people are saying, you need to dig a little further into their Twitter history. For example…
That person thinks Michael Dunn is innocent, says they would shoot “thug” black boys; and in an older tweet talking about the George Zimmerman trial, complains “race is annoying.”
This person also has interesting views about race in America and also says she too would have no problem shooting and killing black teens. However, when discussing the Jody Arias trial last year she had some very interesting Biblical views on those who “inflict injury.”
Yet another white lady is sick and tired of “hearing about race.” It’s 2014 and no big deal now, however, I guess she had no problem discussing race when she made that “joke” on Twitter a few years ago. Gotta’ love people who believe racism is over and make racist “jokes.”
…and when someone called Maximillian (lmao) out on that tweet:
Guess Maximillian (lmao) still has a long way to go.
Cindy here is another white woman who doesn’t believe in racism and then, in one tweet, says the most hilarious contradictory two sentences in the history of the internet.
But, just in case that didn’t spell it out clear enough for you…
Now, I’m sure there are some of you (idiots) out there who do not think describing a black male as a “thug” is racist. My answer to you is brought to you by Twitter user ‘big daddy tom’:
There is one thing here that these repugnant little slimeballs would like to leave you with, and that is that there is a “lesson to be learned” when a white man shoots and kills a black teenager.
Is the lesson that the very act of being a young black male in America puts you in danger? Is the lesson that, yes, in the year 2014 racism is alive and race is very much an issue? Or is the lesson that - …
"Hopefully this case teaches people to turn their music down at the gas station."
There are many (white) people who believe racism is dead and for that reason we should not have things like “Black History Month.”
The people who believe this present arguments such as this:
One could easily put together an argument deconstructing these arguments. Racism is very much still alive and well, and one can prove this using statistics ranging from prison numbers to areas of high poverty. Another point that one could tackle was how they pose slavery as a mere “lesson learned.”
But one would be wasting their time because all you really have to do is put them in front of a mirror to dismantle their claims…
Racism is dead! says racists.
By now, you’ve probably heard of the xenophobic freak out from bigots, racists, and other slimeballs who call themselves “Americans,” during the SuperBowl when the Coca-Cola Company aired a commercial that featured “America the Beautiful” being sung in multiple languages. If you haven’t, I’ll give you a second to catch your breathe as I know hearing that “America the Beautiful” being sung in languages that are not English can cause true American patriots to hyperventilate.
Coca-Cola aired the commercial on TV again. This time, Coke aired the commercial during the Winter Olympics Opening Ceremony.
Now, of course, the tweets during the SuperBowl, an America-centric event where American Football is played, were very ridiculous. But, there is something just a bit more insane/hilarious/bizarre/awful about these people complaining about a multilingual commercial…DURING THE OLYMPIC GAMES, an event the world takes part in, which is taking place in Sochi, Russia, during an opening ceremony where English was certainly not the default spoken language.
Anyway, here is a small collection of some more xenophobic idiots who don’t like the multilingual Coke commercial, especially not during their multilingual Olympic games broadcast…
Again, America the Beautiful is not the national anthem. Unless, she’s pissed that the Russian national anthem that was sung during the Olympic opening ceremony wasn’t in English?
LMAO ——-> #thatisourlanguageAMERICA
haha yes it is the COMMERCIAL that dividing the country. of course it is.
If the United States fought wars so that the only language spoken in America was English, than I guess the United States lost them all.
With all that said, I feel like the following thread sums the entire situation up all too well…
"I stand corrected and I never said my English was any good. The commercial still stinks."
USA! USA! USA!
During the SuperBowl, the Coca-Cola Company aired a commercial to promote their brand as every other mega corporation who has a few million dollars to blow on a 30 to 60 seconds of television airtime. It was a nice commercial titled “It’s Beautiful” in which American people did American things while the song “America the Beautiful” was sung in the background.
You can watch the commercial here:
If you’re a human being you might say to yourself “that was a decent commercial, what’s the big deal?” But if you’re a vile monster void of emotion and compassion you might have realized that America the Beautiful was sung in MULTIPLE LANGUAGES. DEAR GOD, NO. Some people were pissed it was not sung in ENGLISH.
Coca-Cola, the soda pop (YOU NEVER SPECIFIED WHICH ENGLISH I HAVE TO SPEAK) company, tweeted after the commercial aired:
@CocaCola: The Only thing more beautiful than this country are the people who live here.
Coke is probably now realizing how that is not quite true.
Totally not racist.
Damn, Coke. You know shit is messed up when you’ve lost DIABETES BOY…
Yes, speaking foreign languages = terrorists.
Maybe the memo was written in something other than English?
"I’m going to attempt to sound smart and fail miserably."
lmao @ #fuckcoke
'turndaddy' doesn't want “all this foreign shit.”
Yeah, you “asswholes.”
"foreign decent" lmao.
(psssttt…they already have your money.)
"I’m not racist but I am."
"We (meaning myself and my very small sample of friends/family) speak English…"
"I have no control over myself and will continue to give you money for your sugary, addictive beverage, but know I am unhappy with you."
And here are a few fantastic “your in America” tweets showing how just because you say you can speak English, doesn’t mean you know how to write it:
Poor Brett in the tweet below seems to think people are trying to physically force him to stop speaking English by way of soda commercial…
shit, we were all having so much fun until non-white America came in.
Olivia has no fucking clue that it was “America the Beautiful” in the Coke commercial, not God Bless America. But who cares? REAL AMERICANS don’t need to know the difference between the songs as long as they’re sung in ENGLISH!!
And, she’s not the only one. Apparently, the Star-Spangled Banner is no longer the United States’ national anthem…
The commercial was made by the private corporation, the Coca-Cola Company, so if you don’t like it sir, take it up with the *** free market ***.
This is all just a extremely tiny sample of what’s being said over on Twitter and, shit…
…I didn’t even…
…get a chance…
…to take a look at…
…Coca-Cola’s Facebook page.
And don’t you dare tell Conservative pundits this is going on, they don’t believe you (even when their fellow Conservative pundits are taking part in it themselves)…
Last but not least, however, we have Kasey Knowles. Now, first she tweets out this…
…then, she tweets the classic “non-apology apology” where she actually DOUBLES DOWN meaning even the “non-apology apology” is actually a “non-apology non-apology apology”…
…but why would this random girl feel the need to apologize? It’s not like she represents her good ole’ state of Kansas…
"MISS KANSAS 2013"
Justin Bieber was arrested Thursday morning for drag racing, driving while intoxicated, and resisting arrest. Why didn’t the rich young pop star just follow his father’s lead?
lmao. Nice. Way to go. If Jeremy Bieber doesn’t care about his own son’s life, he could at least care for the well being of everyone they fucking endangered by helping his drunk son race down residential streets.
Jeremy Bieber, World’s Greatest Dad.
Thanks to @boring_as_heck over on Twitter for pointing this out.
While I can never claim to be the biggest football fan in the world, I can claim to be a huge, gigantic fan of good ole’ fashioned post-game shit talk. This must be why I love professional wrestling so much.
One of my all-time favorite post-game shit talks will forever be from former UFC Heavyweight champion Brock Lesnar after he won his first fight. In the final minutes of the fight, he mounts his opponent and pretends he’s riding a bull, complete with ‘air-lasso.’ After the bell, ge takes the mic, says something about going home to have sex with his wife, points down at the giant Bud Light logo on the Octagon mat and says “I’m going home to drink Coors Light because Bud Light don’t pay me.”
UFC was not happy. MMA fans said he “disrespected the sport.” And perhaps he did. But damn was it ENTERTAINING. In the world of professional sports, where people with million dollar salaries take themselves way too seriously doing the job of playing a game, it’s a breathe of fresh air watching an athlete in any sport have true, unabashed fun. This can take the form as a display of raw passion, a snarky comment, or straight-up shit talk.
On Sunday night, after taking the Seattle Seahawks to the SuperBowl after defeating the San Francisco 49ers, Richard Sherman gave us this entertaining football moment in the form of, oh yes, the post-game shit talk.
Yes, much like my post-game trash-talking example in Brock Lesnar, people took to Twitter to attack Richard Sherman for “disrespecting the sport.” Unlike my example though, there was just a little something different with the Richard Sherman reactions. And that something different is race. While someone like Brock Lesnar was just being “disrespectful,” Richard Sherman was being a “disrespectful nigger.”
Not that it matters, but Richard Sherman attended Stanford University. Also, yes that is the Gadsden flag, aka the flag you see at all the Tea Party rallies, as this guy’s Twitter background.
See, I told you it doesn’t matter.
Thank you for apologizing for being a racist first, I guess?
Seems like a lot of racists have an expertise in the area of dictionary definitions of racial slurs.
#NoRacismIntended…lmao what the hell is this? Note: if you have to put this hashtag at the end of your tweet, you know this is fucking racist.
Some racists are a bit more original with their racist thinking than out friend Cody over here…
And making an appearance…
the always classy ‘#nigger’!
I guess this is what Twitter would’ve looked like if it was around during Muhammad Ali’s post-fight trash talking.
What is a ‘true nigger’?
What is a ‘straight up nigger’?
"Full nigger’? As opposed to half?
What does this even fucking mean?
But I think I know where those four are getting at. You see, there is this weird belief found among racists who refuse to admit that they are racist, that the word ‘nigger’ has actually be redefined! It doesn’t mean ‘black people’ anymore!
Let our friend Cody here (love the name) explain it to you…
Ah-ha! What a big misunderstanding! A ‘nigger’ is different from a ‘typical black guy’, whatever that is! And who said this is so? Cody Milliken, a ‘typical white guy’!
You see? White people are taking the word ‘nigger’ back! Let Dee over here explain further…
Of course, ‘nigger ain’t racist’! And who better describes someone who is ‘lazy and stupid’ then a Stanford graduate pro football player who is headed to the SuperBowl?!
And after this revelation of the ‘true meaning of the word nigger’, Conservatives are still trying to figure out why they can’t get the black vote. After all, it’s just the “internet making fun” of Sherman and, of course, black people are going to pull the race card!
And don’t forget…tomorrow is Martin Luther King Day!
Long time no see. Happy New Year!
Many of you have been messaging me on here asking when will the next post go up.
The answer is: soon! It’s been a few weeks since the last post and there hasn’t been one yet in 2014. It’s not that there’s been a lack of a-holes to post, it’s just that this is largely a single person run Tumblr and, well, it’s been busy.
ANYWAY, as I prepare the first post of 2014, I have a favor to ask:
VOTE FOR THIS BLOG FOR BEST TUMBLR IN THE SHORTY AWARDS: http://shortyawards.com/category/6th/tumblr
In 2013, this Tumblr put racists, sexists, homophobes, classists, and all around shitty people on notice. This Tumblr had posts re-blogged thousands of times, reach tens of thousands of followers, receive millions of unique visitors, and even made the news in larger outlets a few times.
It’s not really about winning an award itself, it’s about bringing the additional eyes to what’s going on here.
So! In conclusion, help this Tumblr out by voting for it in the Shorty Awards here: http://shortyawards.com/category/6th/tumblr and I’ll be back shit talking the worst people in the world shortly. THANK YOU.
Nelson Mandela, the anti-apartheid icon who emerged as South Africa’s first black President after spending 27 years as a political prisoner, passed away at the age of 95.
While human beings around the planet Earth mourned the loss of a hero, the vile repugnant slime monsters, whom also go by aliases such as "Conservatives," "Republicans," and the "Right Wing" had a different outlook on the passing of a man who changed a nation and inspired a world…
Don’t forget: President Ronald Reagan too thought Nelson Mandela was a terrorist commie. However, as usual, upon realizing history found them on the wrong side at the time, the right wing is now trying to co-opt Nelson Mandela and act as if they were always behind him.
Over on Ted Cruz’s official Facebook page, a post went up in remembrance of Nelson Mandela. However, while the professional right tries to fix their image, the Republican base is more than happy to pull back the curtain and show how true Conservative ‘patriots’ feel about Nelson Mandela…
From the GOP’s official Facebook page, comments left on their Nelson Mandela in memory of post:
On Reason.com’s Facebook post, because don’t let Libertarianism fool you into pretending Libertarians are anything anything but right wingers with a “hipster” look to appeal to younger people:
And of course, how can any good Conservative speak of Nelson Mandela without PRESIDENT BARACK HUSSEIN OBAMA coming to mind! Because, as we all know, Nelson Mandela’s death is all about Obama…
Gotta’ hand it to Shelly for the above comment, she managed to invoke Trayvon Martin in her tweet too!
Did you know that Nelson Mandela died to distract us all from the problems with Obamacare?! Why, let these patriots clue you in!…
However, after all you just saw, I think Fox News contributor Todd Starnes' tweet takes the cake. You see, Todd here was livetweeting President Obama's statement on Nelson Mandela's passing. It seems Obama was a little late to addressing the nation. Todd Starnes was PISSED. How dare Obama disrespect the great Nelson Mandela!…
Todd Starnes must really respect Nelson Mandela, right?
lmao. Check out this tweet from just a year ago where Todd Starnes complains about President Obama…SHOWING NELSON MANDELA SOME RESPECT.
We all know Republicans would have plenty of choice words for a minority social activist partaking in civil disobedience today. But, hey, maybe they let her slide because Rosa Parks is at least partly responsible for the America without racism we enjoy today!
Racism is over, everyone! And to celebrate, the Republican party will continue to to try and pass voter ID laws and keep black people from voting. Yay!
