Tamera Mowry Responds to Critics of Her Interracial Marriage ( x )

YOOOOOOO that second insult though. SHIT

And here’s the thing that gets me, she ONLY speaks of love. She doesn’t insult black men, or speak of black men or white men as the alternative or better option, she speaks of love. 

That’s so sad, because it is love. Not an, “I don’t like black men because…”. 

Im crying

I’m almost crying over this. Tamera Mowry is a sweetheart. I had NO idea she was getting so much grief over this! It’s ridiculous! I just want to give her a hug right now. 

That’s pretty damn awful :(

This is what I was talking about earlier.

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.

In July I shared a story of an incident in which my city’s police stormed a man’s house looking for drugs in the middle of the night and executed his two (understandably startled) dogs. One of the dogs was shot to death while fleeing in fear, and as I noted then, this isn’t an isolated incident. Just a few years ago, the Saint Paul Police killed another family dog…and forced handcuffed children to sit next to its bleeding corpse. The kicker? The raid wasn’t even in the right house!
Now, a new report has surfaced of SPPD brutality. This time, a young father named Chris Lollie was arrested while waiting to pick up his kids from school. The charges were “Trespassing, Disorderly Conduct, and Obstructing Legal Process,” and police claimed he refused to leave an area reserved for employees of the bank building he was in. However, not only were there no signs indicating that the location was private, but Lollie wasn’t even in the bank proper; he was in the skyway.
(For those who aren’t familiar with the skyway system, it’s a thing we have in St. Paul, Minneapolis, and some other Minnesota cities. Basically, it gets hella cold here in the winter, so they built enclosed sidewalks, or skyways, one or two stories up. In the downtown areas, the skyways form a whole second network of pedestrian roads, and once you get inside your office building—or whichever building is closest to your parking garage or bus stop or whatever—you can use them to move from building to building to get around the whole downtown area. It’s an easy way to go to lunch or meetings without having the snot in your nostrils freeze. I mention all that to say: Skyways are public spaces. You do not have to be an employee in the buildings they connect to use them. Lollie was not trespassing.)
Fortunately, Lollie had the presence of mind to capture his interaction with the SPPD on film. Here’s a transcript I’ve made of the first few seconds:

Lollie: So what’s your business with me right now?
Officer: I want to find out who you are, and what the problem was back there…
Lollie: There is no problem—that’s the thing.
Officer: So, talk to me, let me know, and you can be on your way.
Lollie: Let you know…why do I have to let you know who I am? Who I am isn’t the problem.
Officer: Because that’s what police do when they get called.
Lollie: Well, I know my rights, first off. Secondly, I don’t have to let you know who I am if I haven’t broken any laws. Like I told him, I’m going to New Horizons [School] to pick up my kids at 10 o’clock. I was sitting there for ten minutes…

As the officer brushes aside his explanation and continues to illegally demand he identify himself, Lollie cuts to the chase: “The problem is I’m black. That’s the problem. No, it really is, because I didn’t do anything wrong.”
Next, Lollie and the female officer he’s been walking and talking with meet a male officer. When Lollie politely asks the officer not to touch or obstruct him, because he has to go get his kids, the man immediately responds, “Well, you’re going to go to jail then.”
As the police initiate the arrest process—telling him to put his hand behind his back or “otherwise things are going to get ugly"—the camera visuals go black. Lollie continues to be heard pleading, still polite even while he’s assaulted, that he be allowed to go meet his children.
Next, they tase him.
If that’s not enough to convince you that this is gross police misconduct, seriously, take five minutes and watch the video. The calmness of his tone alone should make it obvious that there is no possible argument that the situation merited this kind of police action:

After multiple witnesses verified Lollie’s version of events, prosecutors dropped all charges against him. One woman who is also not an employee at the bank the skyway links noted that she regularly sits during her lunch break exactly where Lollie was sitting, but she has never been harassed by police. However, the SPPD continue to defend their actions.
At The Atlantic, Conor Friedersdorf points out how simple it would have been for police to resolve this situation without violence and an arrest had they cared to do so:

His story about getting his kids wasn’t merely plausible, given the man’s age and the fact that there was a school right there–it was a story the female police officer shown at the beginning of the video or the male officer shown later could easily confirm. 
Lollie is also absolutely correct that no law required him to show an ID to police officers. As Flex Your Rights explains, “Police can never compel you to identify yourself without reasonable suspicion to believe you’re involved in illegal activity,” and while 24 states have passed “stop and identify” statutes “requiring citizens to reveal their identity when officers have reasonable suspicion to believe criminal activity may be taking place,” Minnesota isn’t one of those states.

The female officer shown in the beginning of the video could easily have de-escalated the encounter by saying, “You’re right, sir, you have every right to refuse to show me identification, and if you’re just picking up your kids I’m so sorry to have bothered you. If you don’t mind, I just want to walk with you to confirm that your story checks out so I can inform the 911 caller of their error. That way we can make sure this never happens again when you’re just here to pick up your kids.”
Or she could’ve said, “Sir, I totally see why this is confusing–a lot of people would think so. Let me try to explain. That totally looks like a public seating area, but it’s actually private. Don’t you think they should have a sign saying so? Calling me may seem like an overreaction, but technically they can ask you to leave. You’re walking away now, so there’s actually no problem as long as you’re not going to go back. Are you? Okay, then we have no problem, have a wonderful day.”  

As Lollie is carried away post-tasing, he can be heard challenging the officers’ “legal” assault: "Who are you? You don’t rule me. I didn’t do anything wrong. I didn’t hurt anybody. I didn’t touch anybody." 
If only the SPPD could honestly say the same.

Here’s the clip from last night’s episode of Girl Meets World where there is a brief discussion of cultural appropriation as part of a lesson about being true to yourself.

In the episode, Riley decides to dress in the harajuku style in order to feel popular and accepted in a group of nerds at her school. When at a spelling bee, her friend and her father confront her with the fact that she actually knows nothing about harajuku culture and doesn’t even know how to spell the name.

While the words “cultural appropriation” aren’t directly said in the scene, I’m really happy with the way the subject is handled and the fact that children watching Disney Channel are being exposed to this. There are still issues with the diversity of actors being casted and use of stereotypes (there were some pretty terrible scenes with a Ukrainian bakery owner in the same episode), but this is a step in the right direction. Yay to the GMW writers!

So let me get this straight

It’s okay for the Japanese to “culturally appropriate” 

European navy uniforms (for schoolgirl fashion especially kogal style and navy lolita)

Hawaiian and california surfer aesthetics (for Mameba fashion)

Blackface and a crude stereotype of American black hip hop and rap (for Ganguro and the aforementioned Mameba fashion)

Victorian English fashion and Rococo Era France for all manner of Lolita fashion

70s British punk aesthetics, and the Union Jack to be worn as personal adornment

The Chinese qipao for Qi Lolita, in which traditional chinese clothing is combined with the petticoats and Mary Janes of Lolita fashion (as well as Korean women’s clothing being used in a similar way)

For Decora to drench themselves in all manner of imported European and American character toys, from Barbie to the Powerpuff Girls to Thomas the Tank Engine to Betty Boop 

For fairy kei and mori girls to deliberately cultivate the image of a girl lost in the woods, by wearing clothing and jewellery inspired by European Roma clothing and European fairy tales, such as the Brothers Grimm? 

For all of these fashion subcultures to be so obsessed with the British designer Vivienne Westwood, that you could play a drinking game when you see someone in FRUITS wearing one of her designs, and that Japan is Westwood’s most important market outside of the UK, and her website can be found in both English and Japanese?  How about the fact that many manga-kas who are contributers to the Harajuku styles such as Ai Yazawa, Kaori Yuki and Mitsukazu Mihara are unabashed anglophiles?  Ai Yazawa’s comics are full of shout-outs to two of her favourite things, Vivienne Westwood and the Sex Pistols, and many of the characters dream of fleeing Tokyo to study fashion in London. 

That in the 80s, one of the most popular street styles was “American Casual” in which teenagers went out of their way to make themselves look like extras in West Side Story or Grease, and tripped around the Pedestrian Heaven doing the peppermint twist and worshipping Elvis and James Dean and Marilyn Monroe?

Are we seriously complaining about “culturally appropriating” Harajuku Fashion?  Seriously?  Harajuku fashionitas are the last people on the planet who get to complain about cultural appropriation.  If you want to play the “omg she doesn’t even know how to spell its name” then why is it all right to name a fashion style after a book about a child molester simply because someone liked the word and had never read the book?  Are we seriously trying to say Japanese street fashion is somehow something holy and sacred?  I’m pretty sure most of the punks scampering around Harajuku draped in rosary beads and crucifixes are not Christians. 

Damn Poppy, this is better than my analysis of the episode.

Tumblr is a cult.

They drag in young, insecure people that don’t know what to make of themselves, and they validate all their retarded ideas and tell them that they should distance themselves from everyone that isn’t part of the cult.

e.g. “You’re 13 and not all that interested in girls? You must be ASEXUAL just like us!”

But like in all cults, once you’re inside you better watch your fucking step. Conduct is strictly policed, and any attempts to question the group-think are swiftly and severely punished.

Hugboxing is the mechanism that Tumblr communities use to draw their victims into the cult, but it only extends so far, and if you transgress then they’ll cut you off hard.
