White supremacy is when White Gay Men TELL BLACK WOMEN that they should be HONORED that a racist stereotype against them is being mimicked and lauded.
White supremacy is forcing Black women into a stereotype and getting upset and insulting them when they do not want to be placed as such.
White supremacy is when white people tell Black people that their ability to use racist stereotypes is more important than respecting the humanity of Black women.
White supremacy is when white gay men believe that they have more of a right to Black women’s identities than BLACK WOMEN.
And of course, this will be reblogged by so called ‘anti-soshul juztiz’ and racist white gay male blogs who don’t give a shit about the people who are fucking harmed by these stereotypes.
You’re a fool if you think this happens in just Louisiana….add California, Alabama, Florida, Texas, etc…anywhere where there is agricultural cultivation…jyeah
Ana Rosa Diaz is a 40-year-old mother of four from Municipio Hidalgo, Mexico. Ana came to Louisiana as a guestworker to peel crawfish for a Walmart supplier called C.J.’s Seafood.
While Walmart has profited from Ana’s work, Ana’s employer has subjected her and her fellow guestworkers to forced labor. They have been forced to work up to 24-hour shifts with no overtime pay. Supervisors have threatened to beat them with shovels to make them work faster.
Workers live in trailers across from the boss’s house, and are under constant surveillance. The supervisors enter their trailers without warning, and threaten firing if workers leave after 9 p.m.
And when Ana and her fellow workers tried to stand up to the boss, he threatened violence against their families in Mexico.
“He said, ‘As a friend I can be very good, but you don’t want to know me as an enemy. I have contacts with good people and bad people, and I know where all your families live. I can find you no matter where you hide,’” Ana said. “We were terrified.”
“We want to work,” Ana said. “We need to support our families. We just want to be treated like human beings.”
The workers joined the National Guestworker Alliance and decided to go on strike. The boss refused to take back his threats against their families, so now they’re taking their demands to Walmart.
Walmart’s Standards for Suppliers forbid forced labor on the Walmart supply chain. But Walmart is profiting from forced labor in Louisiana. And now it’s attempting a cover-up without having even spoken with the whistle-blowers who are on strike.
Walmart needs to show its suppliers that it won’t tolerate forced labor. We’re demanding that Walmart:
- Cancel its contract with C.J.’s Seafood to show that it won’t profit from forced labor in Louisiana.
- Sit down with the striking workers immediately as a first step toward a real investigation — rather than a cover-up.
- Sign the NGA’s Guestworker Dignity Standards to prevent forced labor and guarantee civil and labor rights for guestworkers across the Walmart supply chain.

Bringing this back because it’s awesome and should have more notes.
MSNBC host Rachel Maddow on Wednesday night explained a legal memo that advised the Bush Administration that so-called enhanced interrogation techniques were torture and therefore illegal.
Wired reporter Spencer Ackerman obtained the memo, written by State Department counselor Philip Zelikow, through a Freedom on Information Act request.
Bush told NBC’s Matt Lauer in 2010 that he authorized the use of enhanced interrogation techniques like waterboarding because his “lawyer said it was legal, said it did not fall within the Anti-Torture Act.” But Zelikow’s memo warned the Bush Administration in 2006 that the interrogation techniques used on terror suspects by the CIA were “a felony war crime.”
as Obama pushes more of the same through. america. holding other countries accountable for the same rights and laws we shit on. FUCK YEA.
Martin, 17, a high school junior who lived with his mother in Miami, was visiting his father and stepmother at their home in Sanford, a suburb of Orlando, on the weekend of Feb. 26. During halftime of the NBA All-Star Game, Martin’s family said he walked to a nearby convenience store to get some…
shot by his own neighborhood watch. being black in america….. i’m going to say this again because i think it needs to be said. THIS is the family President Obama needs to be reaching out to. FUCK sandra fluke and her feelings of being called names while PoC have been called way worse for way longer on the SAME program and she was silent as all the shit. This young intelligent (not that THAT even fuckin matters) black boy was shot and killed by his own neighborhood watch because he was black and obviously black people are too dangerous to live in an affluent white neighborhood. and for all the white people SILENT about this issue because they dont care or havent even bothered to look into how their white privilege literally KILLS us can suck all the AIDs dicks in the world. and yes thats vulgar and yes its coming from a place of hate and YES YOU DESERVE IT.

[The young black males are] shuttled into prisons, branded as criminals and felons, and then when they’re released, they’re relegated to a permanent second-class status, stripped of the very rights supposedly won in the civil rights movement — like the right to vote, the right to serve on juries, the right to be free of legal discrimination and employment, and access to education and public benefits. Many of the old forms of discrimination that we supposedly left behind during the Jim Crow era are suddenly legal again, once you’ve been branded a felon.
In her book The New Jim Crow: Mass Incarceration in the Age of Colorblindness, legal scholar Michelle Alexander writes that many of the gains of the civil rights movement have been undermined by the mass incarceration of black Americans in the war on drugs. (via nprfreshair)
and america is the prison capital of the world. the world. more people in prison than china, cuba, south america. with the most people of color imprisoned you would think that people of color commit the most crimes? nope.OR that they are caught more frequently. on the contrary, PoC are just tried more frequently. now aint that some racist shit. white people are literally exempt from the same legal system that rapes you and never lets you forget it. and of course they are… they created the legal system. it only makes sense who would be exempt from it.
fuck.americas.legal.system.with.aids. (and the people who benefit from it at the oppression of others)
In the opinion piece that Dr. Carlsson-Paige referred to, Dennis Van Roekel, president of the N.E.A., and Wendy Kopp, founder of T.F.A., urged the importance of evaluating and improving teacher training programs across the country. Yet in her e-mail to Mr. Van Roekel, Dr. Carlsson-Paige said she finds this message somewhat disingenuous on the part of T.F.A. “I am very familiar with TFA and believe that its short-term, minimal training of teachers undermines teacher quality and harms children who too often get an inadequate education with its teachers,” the e-mail states.
oh, matt damon. always doing what you can to get into my panties….
gotta say that i feel the same way about TFA. two year commitment? that isn’t really a commitment at all. i’ve owned underwear longer. and the dilemma in new orleans is that hundreds of experienced committed teachers were fired in order to make way for TFA teachers. i bullshit you not. this country gives NO shits about inner city youths education… they cut funding and replace teachers that actually have been teaching for years and call it reform. no. its setting up a future of predestined poor. mostly consisting of minorities. stop drinking the fucking koolaid
There have been countless accounts of violence recorded during the uprisings in Egypt but the image that perhaps has captured the most attention is the most recent. The image has been widely referred to as the “girl in the blue bra.”
A veiled young woman is dragged and beaten by Egyptian military during a protest in Cairo’s Tahrir Square. Her face is covered. Her torso is bare, except for her bright-blue bra, which is a millisecond away from being kicked by a solider. - NPR Picture Show (photo-Reuters/Landov)
