Stats Pr0n of the Day: U.S. Map of Hate Speech on Twitter
Since June 2012, Dr. Monica Stevens of Humboldt State University in California has been mapping more than 150,000 geotagged tweets that contain homophobic, racist or abliest language. The result is the Geography of Hate, an interactive map of the U.S. which reveals the hotspots of “hate tweets” across the country. A deeper analysis of the project is available at Floating Sheep.
Hey there, Portland, how’s it goin’?
They say, “please don’t compare it with the Holocaust.” I say, why shouldn’t I? You do many of the same things that were done to you… horrible things… walling us in, forcing us out. We have this now in Gaza. “Closure” they call it. Listen to their officials and you can hear the echo of their own history. They say, “Look, we are allowing them food supplies, and medicines… See how well we treat them.” That’s what Hitler told the world. But it wasn’t true. Now they are doing what Hitler did: destroying our land, confiscating our property, putting us in concentration camps, even stamping numbers on our hands. They, the victims, have become the victimisers. It’s very strange to see that. And please don’t say I am anti-Semitic, because I am a Semite, too. We Arabs are Semites. If Hitler had come to Palestine, he would have done the same to us.

I’m sorry, but no. I’m also shocked that for a lawyer, she doesn’t sound that intelligent, this is very naive sounding. Using the Holocaust, a subject is which complex and broad, which affected more than just the Jewish people.. is unintelligent. I know that things are really not that well in Gaza or for Palestinians, but it is no Holocaust. I know for a fact the only reason there is use of the Holocaust out of all the genocides in the world, is to personally slap the Jewish people in the face.
Before I get onto the thing that really caught my attention, lets clarify what anti-Semite means. It was a term coined for Jews, not Arabs, Jews, you cannot change the definition of a term. So yes, Arabs can be anti-Semitic, because that term means hate against JEWISH PEOPLE.
When talking about hate against Arabs, who says ‘oh,that is anti-Semitic? NOBODY.
If Hitler came to Palestine.. now that is interesting. I’m tired of actually repeating this same story. Firstly, there was relations between Nazi Germany and the Arab world, in fact there was emulation of Nazism in the Arab world. Hitler of course saw Arabs inferior, the guy saw everyone that wasn’t Aryan perfect as inferior. However, unlike with the Jewish people, Hitler met with Arabs, he expressed warmness towards them, in his opinion they had one common enemy, the Jews. The biggest collaborators were the Palestinian Mufti Haj Amin and the Iraqi prime minister Ali al-Gaylani. Then there is the man who founded the Muslim Brotherhood that collaborated with the Nazis. The Palestinian Mufti made strong relationships with leading Nazis, he recruited Muslim Bosnians for the Nazi SS, and he conspired in the idea of a death squad to kill Jews in Egypt and Palestine. In fact, just go and read up about Nazi Germany and Palestine, there is so much.
So yes, this quote is a fail.
Keep doing mental backflips to justify genocide. Cuz we all know that’s cute as fuck.
it’s called AAVE, you FUCKTRUCK
I hate how people here think that “proper general English” is the only way to speak English and all the others are considered “idiocy” like if language has anything to do with intelligence. I’m not even from the U.S. and I know this better than most of you.
Below is a list of all English dialects in North America:
- New England English
- Inland Northern American English (includes western and central upstate New York)
- Mid-Atlantic dialects
- Inland Northern American English (Lower peninsula of Michigan, northern Ohio and Indiana, Chicago, part of eastern Wisconsin and upstate New York)
- North–Central American English (primarily Minnesota, but also most of Wisconsin, the Upper peninsula of Michigan, and parts of North Dakota, South Dakota, and Iowa)
- Midland American English
- Southern English
- Western English
- Hawaiian Pidgin
Despite Tim Wise’s opposition to white supremacy and white privilege, he is a clear beneficiary of both. This is largely due to the fact that, evidently, he is not perceived as a threat to the establishment. What does this say about Wise? What does this say about the state of the movement? What does this say about the state of racism in our society? White institutions can tolerate anti-racist discourse as long as it is spoken by somebody who looks like them. In fact, such staged discourse becomes a prime opportunity for such schools to present themselves as champions of multiculturalism and diversity even as they continue to enact policies and initiate professional and educational practices that discriminate against students, faculty and staff of color.
By definition, white privilege is not earned. Wise doesn’t have to do anything to gain access to the benefits assigned to the social construct of racialized whiteness. Even his apparent efforts to expose it have not caused the white establishment to banish him or treat him like a person of color. Given that Wise isn’t saying anything new or revolutionary in regards to how to eradicate racism, what accounts for his popularity and celebrity status and the fact that his calendar is filled with engagements for the next few years? His whiteness! The very thing he speaks against. Might this be the ultimate white privilege?
Not all women are white women.
holy fucking shit thanks kojak for that mind-bloggling news flash
People seem to forget tho.
why did you reblog respond to me and not my friend who just ID herself as a WOC in a post a whole one note down from mine
Frankly, I didn’t see it?
read the notes you accumulate more closely then maybe
Out of a whopping 10 notes or whatever? That’s convenient.
i’m so pissed off at stripsearch’s latest episode.
and i know if i talk about race, and how it affects the way people see artists, i am going to be accused of pulling the “race card,” or being racist myself; i am going to be dismissed out of hand as a lunatic, because “we live in a post-racial society,” but mostly because white people think that being called “racist” is somehow the same as being called the n-word.
i’m sick of it. i’m sick of seeing white artists pull ahead of their equally talented brown peers. i’m sick of seeing how hard brown and black artists work just to keep up and watching them getting dismissed over and over and over and over again. the worst part though, is when we talk about it we’re dismissed as being crazy.
eliminating an extra artist, breaking the rules they set for the show, i don’t think that would’ve happened if that artist had been white. and if the artist they eliminated the other night hadn’t been white, she wouldn’t be BACK. (i’m not saying she’s not talented or skilled, or that she doesn’t work hard. i’m saying she was PREVIOUSLY ELIMINATED and that the show’s producers would not have broken the rules to bring her back if she was not white. this is what “white privilege” means.)
you can think i’m fucking crazy, whatever. i’m done giving a fuck because i know i’m right. the biggest issue for me is not letting it get to me. the biggest issue for me is finding other comic artists of color and working together to make the work WE want to see, and try and reach the audiences that need to be reached.
the lesson to be learned from this kind of —WHY AM I SURPRISED?!— slap in the face is to keep being the best we can be. and not let those with the cultural steadfastness of whiteness make us feel like we’re dirty or untalented because we’re not.
apologies to the artists in question for using them as examples of a problem i was already mad about. you’re all hard workers and deserve recognition for that hard work, regardless of race.
i would love to live in a world where i don’t have to think about this any more. but i don’t. so i’m not gonna sit on my hands and lie. is anyone out there with me because i’m lonely as fuck with these unpopular opinions and big fucking mouth IT’S A TERRIBLE COMBINATION DON’T THINK I DON’T KNOW IT LOL
One guy, who happened to be Asian, joined up the ride. He had a new bike, was sporting “all brand new stereotypical biker gear,” and didn’t really speak with anyone. Folks got suspicious and jumped to the conclusion that quiet Asian dude had to be an undercover cop trying to infiltrate them. In fact, in a blog post on BikePortland (which has since been taken down), publisher Jonthan Maus identified the mysterious Asian dude as Portland Police Bureau Captain Chris Uehara. He even posted side-by-side photos of bike guy and Capt. Uehara, confidently declaring that “the man in these photos appears to be the same man.” Asian guy. Asian guy. Absolutely, positively the same guy. No doubt about it. Wrong. BikePortland later acknowledged that the man was indeed not Capt. Uehara, but instead a man named Krisapon Chaisawa, a 35-year-old food server. He’s new in town and wanted to go on the ride to meet some people. People who ended up accusing him of being up to no good.
portland we see you
You’ll be hard-pressed to find any more liberal racist clique than a white radical bicycle clique. These are the colorblind racists who take great offense at political correctness and get indignant when their elaborate philosophical bullshit is called out as the simple-ass bullshit it is. China has been running on bicycles more than cars since the industrial revolution and these motherfuckers think they’re onto some new shit. The Pacific Northwest has historically been a region of heavy white supremacism, from the lynch mobs and Driving Out of the Chinese to the white supremacist survivalists, and the biking radicals fall exactly in line with that tradition.
