Ok so i’ve just seen this on my timeline on twitter and quite frankly I’m angry. This is in london and the metropolitan police here are known to be racist. With all that’s going on in America right now i thought I’d shed some light on what’s happening here in the UK. While its illegal to bear arms in this country, the systematic racism and discrimination still remains against black people, men in particular. Racial profiling is an epidemic and with social media at the forefront it’s been easier to really see how often this occurs, Please re blog this and spread this on your dashboard! These racist authorities need to be exposed!

Anonymous said: America is also a continent. I cannot believe that it's 2014 and people from the United States still think of their country as all that there is to America.

You’re absolutely right but let’s not even go into that right now,

This ‘well enlightened’ woman is a white European who unironically thinks that Africa is a country. Expecting her to know that The United States isn’t all there is to America is expecting too much of her sensibilities.

urghhh those are the worst, it’s why i had to delete facebook for my own sanity. like i can’t wait til you hear what she has to say about it irl. she may have a powerpoint presentation prepared with all the bullet points summarising KONY 2012 lmao

LMAO I will cry if she doesn’t. 

essenangstessen replied to your post “essenangstessen replied to your photoset:I’m Yellow, a former work…”

like what is she trying to justify? does she not know the great country of america has a drought in california? and she thought africa was a country? can’t wait for her analysis of the picture, u can tell she has some deep thoughts *cough* ignorance

Oh I would have brought that up, but I’m waiting for her to say more stupid shit. My gripe right now is with the stupid ass picture and what it insinuates. She’s in London, I bet her ignorant ass doesn’t know there’s a major drought in California. She’s one of the fake deep twats who post half thought out things to look enlightened and knowledgeable.

omg the cheek of them to justify it!

She really tried it. I’ll prolly see her on Monday, I can’t wait CAN NOT FUCKING WAIT to hear what she’ll have to say cos I KNOW she’ll bring it up.

caracaracara replied to your photoset “I’m Yellow, a former work acquaintance is Red. I log on to Facebook…”

I love how she’s trying to act all enlightened about a humanitarian issue and better than everyone else for caring so deeply, but then says Africa is a country. Wearing that ignorance like a badge of honor.

LMAO! she really was! I remember during that whole KONY mess, she came looking for me to tell me how enlightened about the issues she was. Being a stereotypical half-educated idiot with the badge to boot.

I’m Yellow, a former work acquaintance is Red.

I log on to Facebook to procrastinate (as you do) and I see this bullshit. This isn’t the first time she’s posted some diet racist shit like this (I mean I only just posted the diet racist video to my page, how fucking ironic is this shit?)

I don’t understand why white people will not just fucking stay in their lane. I mean I really couldn’t believe that a uni graduate said the ‘Africa is a country’ line.

I would delete her but I’m itching for her to post more bullshit so I give her a proper dressing down. We have at least 20 friends in common so I KNOW everyone is seeing this shit right now.

Person is white is also a former work friend (a POC in fact! but I won’t drag him today).

One by one, I will club people over the head for being wilfully ignorant and comfortably racist.

Wallah, I need to be more selective in my choice of friends.

New device allows brain to bypass spinal cord, move paralyzed limbs
For the first time ever, a paralyzed man can move his fingers and hand with his own thoughts thanks to a new device. A 23-year-old quadriplegic is the first patient to use Neurobridge, an electronic neural bypass for spinal cord injuries that reconnects the brain directly to muscles, allowing voluntary and functional control of a paralyzed limb.

You stand in line for hours to have the chance to sit across from Marina Abramović (The Artist is Present) and you weep. You stand in line for hours  to see Kara Walker’s “A Subtlety, or the Marvelous Sugar Baby an Homage to the unpaid and overworked Artisans who have refined our Sweet tastes from the cane fields to the Kitchens of the New World on the Occasion of the demolition of the Domino Sugar Refining Plant.” You wait to enter the soon-to-be-demolished Domino Sugar Refinery—this place that links you to sugar’s pleasures and histories and presents of slavery, coolie labor, colonialism, imperialism, death, and displacement—and you cut up.

We had something similar in the evening standard today - UK Unis complaining of the ‘influx of students from ebola hit areas and the chance of the spread of the disease’ As if the countries are completely over run with diseased individuals.

One uni was even quoted as saying they’ll have to test all students to contain the infection. Because yes, ALL the countries don’t have tests in place or you think they also want to spread the disease further? KMFT

I swear these journalists  and westerners generally really ain’t shit.

wow, you’ve seriously got it all together are you going to patent it? have you got a company logo and can i be an official taster? you should go on dragon’s den, i can see it all now. a bubble tea empire, from soho to the sahara!!!

Man, I think up business ideas when I’m procrastinating, I can’t tell you how many ideas I come up with every single day. Today I developed an art project idea with my dad on the phone run off the mill and I’ve got his stamp of approval including the order of business and what the final venture would look like (all in the duration of 30 minute phone call).

Yeah, lol I’ve thought a great deal about it. Yes you can! Nah, I hate talking to people lol I’ll prolly freeze up once the cameras start rolling; more so I’ve been told my voice gets really low and husky when I’m in formal situations, I’ll look a right knob if I had to go pitch. :p
