How To Shave Like Your Grandpa


The whole “shave like your grandpa” trend is especially hard on me, as my grandpa was a lunatic who often shaved with a frozen porcupine.

Lupita was recently named the most beautiful by People’s Magazine, and some of their readers expressed their dissatisfaction with this decision  in the comment section. One reader even commented that Lupita didn’t deserve this title because she’s 100% black(she finds women unattractive if they’re 100% black). These comments made me think of the brilliant post made by radicalrebellion

White women (non-black women of color included in this as well) become offended and angry when a black woman (especially a dark skinned black woman like Lupita) is depicted as beautiful and worthy of appreciation because it jeopardizes their position as the epitome of beauty and womanhood. Black women are viewed as the antithesis of White beauty and womanhood, these white women are completely apathetic and silent when dark skinned Black women are portrayed as “ugly” and “unlovable” by the mainstream media because they benefit from this oppression. That’s why you never see white supermodels discussing racism and colorism in the fashion industry. However, these readers wouldn’t complain if it were light skinned black women like Halle Berry, Beyonce, or Rihanna (we all know why, hint: colorism). Anyway, congratulations to the ***flawless Lupita for being named the most beautiful!

It’s not a matter of working harder. The 40-hour work week vs capital gains and the ability to leverage one’s wealth at multiples is not comparable. The ability to hide earnings and lower tax expenditures clearly favors the very wealthy.

We have created a system that burdens the middle classes and gives the corporations/top 1% benefits that do not help our economy. The earnings for shareholders trumps all humanity and the incentive to invest in jobs/infrastructure has been reduced to near zero. 

Why spend any of your under-taxed profits when you can hide it off-shore?

Kody (Pretty Boy) Ingham (pictured above) was found hanging from a tree in front of his white girlfriends house on July 15, 2013 (the same night as the George Zimmerman verdict) in Athens, Texas. it was chalked up as a suicide and no investigation ensued, even though two hours prior he called his mother to pick him up from the site he died at. no newspaper article, just a four sentence obituary in the local papers and his family has been trying hard to make any mainstream news channel blow up the story to find the killers.

Roy Veal was found hanging in Woodville, Mississippi in 2004. he originally lived in Seattle and went to his mother’s home in Woodville to help her fight for the rights to their family land against a white man. Oil had been found underneath the land.

Roy’s head was covered with a pillow case and burned papers of the documented proof he had to prove his mothers’ ownership were found burned at his feet. He was later found hanging from a tree. His death was ruled a suicide.

His family is still trying to get attention for the case 

Reynard Johnson, 17, was found hanging from a tree on his front lawn on June 16, 2000 in Kokomo, Mississippi. His death was ruled a suicide even though the belt around his neck was not his. Authorities said since no hate group left a message by the body, there was nothing to investigate. Family members said the motive was his relationship with a white girl, he was constantly being harassed because of this.



This stuff still happens guys. Boosting

I hate spics and I hate niggers.

Call me racist. Because I’m proud to be one.👌

I’d be careful of what you say

In 10 years there will be more of us than there are…



Shanesha Taylor was arrested on March 20th by the Scottsdale Police for leaving her children ages 2 and 6 months in her car while she was interviewed for a job. Ms. Taylor was homeless and could not access any child care. Her desperation to provide for herself and her children and her lack of options led her to take drastic measures in search of employment. Ms. Taylor needs support & help rather than incarceration and a criminal record that will surely decrease her chances to provide for her children in the future. We ask that Maricopa County use common-sense and provide support for Ms. Taylor and her children rather than punishment.

Shanesha Taylor is still in jail pending a $9,000 bond.

USA Tax Dollar Distribution

My husband and I made enough money this year we actually owed more money to the government. I feel very lucky - it’s really hard to complain about having to pay taxes when you lived comfortably for the past year. (Well, really hard for me to complain. Obviously pretty easy for Romney et al to piss and moan about it.)

With all of that said: Fuuuuuuuuuuuuck how much money we spend on the military. Can we flip that with the science and education budget? Pretty please?
