Wow. Apparently Jon Stewart didn’t know that racism still existed until yesterday. Because some old guy is an asshole, now Jon knows. Now he has the ‘proof’ that racism isn’t dead like he thought it was. So now Jon Stewart, the guy who didn’t know about racism until yesterday, is gonna smugly show how not-racist he is by dumping on an easy target and making “oh really” faces into the camera for 20 minutes in front of an audience of lobotomized college drop-outs while they how like hyenas when the “LAUGH” sign blinks red.
Tune in tonight at 10/9c if you haven’t already taken your own life!
OH MY GOD! So I was in the target with my little sister and came across this. I honestly dont even know what to say.
The attack on white women in America must be stopped.
Everyday we are made to feel as though we are less than, ugly and should hate ourselves.
We are encouraged to get collengin impants in our lips, breast implants and butt injections to to have black features.
Today my little sister even told me, “Ashley, I want to be a black girl.” Do you know how that made me feel?!?!?!?!?!? I felt like I failed her.
The media wants white women to be ashamed of themselves.
And it is time to stop that. Everywhere I turn, i see black women stealing white men, like thieves in the night.
I dont mean to be racist but honestly sometimes I wish we could go back to segregation.
I went on twitter to see what others were thinking and I even realized that most people saying she was ugly were INDEED black men! How am I to believe black women are beautiful if their own men dont.
Im so upset, my little sister asked my dad if she could go tanning the other day and he just walked out of the room. What is America coming too? Why is the assault on my face, body, lips, eyes and skin so harsh?
If you ask me, most beautiful should have went to either Jennifer Lawrence or Anna Kendrick, not because their white but because physically they are stunning.
Could you have any more of a victim complex?
did you know that behaving like an atrocious stereotypical caricature of a ‘hood-rat’ does not actually darken the pigment of your skin?
hey white people
wanna know the secret behind what you seem to think is some sort of magical anti-aging gene in black people?
It’s called using lotion and taking care of your skin
that’s the big secret
i shouldn’t even be telling you this
they’re gonna wanna know how I found this out
just stop saying dumb shit about how ‘black people don’t age omg lol’
White people talking about white people is such a hilarious train wreck
I think that white people* love these news stories like “Paula Deen called somebody a nigger”
because the act of pointing at somebody and saying “they’re a racist, they’re a bad person” contains an implicit claim that “I’m not a racist, and I’m a good person, because I’m condemning them.”
White people love to use these ‘scandals’ (as if anybody in the world is shocked that an old white cooking-lady from the south is racist) in order to regain their innocence and moral authority and to assuage their white guilt.
Which is what’s so sickening about the whole spectacle. Most of the condemnation of Deen isn’t out of genuine moral outrage, it’s just people using the character flaws of famous people in order to build up their own image of themselves. No different from when people read gossip mags about Lindsay Lohan.
*when I say ‘white people’ I obviously don’t mean every white person. In this instance I mean the people who have reveled in this whole Paula Deen story, especially those in the media.
these skinny white girls need to knock it off with the twerking
honey i get that you want to be included but you don’t know what you’re doing and you don’t have the equiptment
you’re embarrassing everybody
Further, though, the TOMS campaign — like the million shirts — misses the fundamental point that not having a pair of shoes (or a shirt, christmas toy, etc.) is not a problem about not having shoes. It’s a problem of poverty. Shoelessness, such as it is, is a symptom of a much bigger and more complex problem. And while donating a pair of shoes helps shoelessness, it does not help poverty.
Things like jobs help poverty. Jobs making things like shoes, for example. But TOMS doesn’t make its shoes in Africa, it makes them in China where it’s presumably cheaper to make two pairs of shoes and give one away than it is to get people in a needier community to make one pair of shoes.
The result of this setup, as Zizek explains most succinctly, is that on a big-picture level, TOMS (and other buy-my-product-and-donate companies) are busy building the exploitative global structure that produces economic inequality, while on the other hand pretending that supporting them actually does something to fix it.
It doesn’t. It just gives people shoes.
But all that matters is the “precious white egos” (rogelio’s wonderful phrase) of the the idiotic first-worlders doing the ‘saving’. It’s not actually about the people they’re claiming to save. Those people are just props in their morality play. It’s about the big M E.
