If you’re a black person who has ever visited a place where there aren’t many other black people, then you will be familiar with The Nod. The Nod is just that: An almost imperceptible lowering of the head toward any other black person you might encounter on your travels through, say, Slovakia or Russia.
Yet The Nod is also so much more than that: It’s a swift yet intimate statement of ethnic solidarity. The Nod is saying, “Wow, well, I really didn’t expect to see another one of us out here, but you seem to be doing your thing just fine. More power to you, and all the very best.”
man, being ‘raised white’, this always confused me a bit. was there some negro conspiracy I was supposed to be in on? nope, just mutual acknowledgement of our circumstances (oppression by white supremacy)
ISTJ: Practical and down-to-earth. Probably your mother. ISFJ: Always nice enough to be suspicious and more loyal than all your pets combined. ISTP: Probably don’t care about you, might still kill you in your sleep though. ISFP: Always carrying at least 4 daisy chains on them at all times; don’t take them to museums if you ever want to come out again. INTP: That one guy hiding in their room trying to calculate exactly how much bigger the TARDIS is on the inside. INFP: Starry-eyed idealist, so caring and sweet they might just rot your teeth out. INTJ: 50% standoffishness, 50% being right all the time, 100% better than you. INFJ: Spends half their time delivering melodramatic heroic monologues and the other half attempting to purify the ground they walk on. ESTJ: 100% committed to their life partner, the rulebook. ESFJ: Happy to make you happy to make them—could potentially create a feeling paradox. ESTP: Probably Kanye West. ESFP: The golden retriever you always wanted, except in human form. ENTP: Would probably blow up the world to calculate shrapnel velocity. ENFP: Like a bottle of fizzy soda, except with more righteousness. ENTJ: Like an INTJ, just better at hiding the fact that they’re an asshole. ENFJ: The world’s mother hen. May also be running ten cults of worship behind your back.
"The rate of police killings of black Americans is nearly the same rate of lynchings in the early decades of the 20th century." this is, in no way shape or form, even mildly close to being even slightly true. please prove me wrong with a source other than a dry erase board around someone's neck. even though i realize that's enough proof to sway the opinion of the ever-legitimate SJW.
“even though i realize that’s enough proof to sway the opinion of the ever-legitimate SJW.”
Aw, boo hoo— you called me a derogatory name that’s meaningless outside of Tumblr/Reddit/Urban Dictionary. How you wound!
Now this is one of two responses I’m providing to you anon-ratfucks tonight because: 1) I’m not your teacher, 2) Google is your friend, and 3) you fuckboys (and girls) never learn one way or another, so why waste the time. BUT, for my folks out there who actually care, here’s some stats that took less than an hour to gather on the internet (re: #2).
Recorded Lynchings in the US (likely under-reported):
Total of lynchings of Blacks over listed period: 1,568
So actually, you’re right— from what little data the corrupt police state actually reports, the police kill MORE Black folk today than lynchings in the early 20th century. Feel free to respond, but if you do, try to be less of a ratfuck punk, and actually show you’re real profile instead of anon. Also: you can take 20 seats now.
The real problem with people fussing over Pluto all the time is it represents the priorities of the public - preserving traditions rather than accepting facts. The pursuit of science is about building a sustainable catalog of truths, and there is no advantage in altering truths to appease nostalgia.
