    The web flipped over the “one-night stand homeless man” — but completely missed the double standard on parade

    When Miley Cyrus — or rather, her homeless pal Jesse — gave a surprise acceptance speech at the MTV Video Music Awards last month, much of the conversation centered around whether or not the debonair young man “looked homeless.” The whole incident personified a voyeuristic, intrusive strain of curiosity directed at homeless people that makes a slew of assumptions based on appearance and stereotypes.

    Unfortunately, a new video posted by Elite Daily won’t help much with these nasty tropes. The video plays on white privilege to glamorize homelessness and addiction, all while glossing over the experiences of the majority of Americans without stable housing.

    Would we be laughing if he wasn’t a white man?

    Twitter detective finds Philadelphia men responsible for hospitalizing gay couple

    An anonymous Twitter user became a hero this week by solving the case of a brutal, homophobic gang assault on a young gay couple in Philadelphia that left the two hospitalized.

    On the night of Sept. 11, the couple was cornered, verbally harassed and beaten into the hospital by a dozen or so “young, clean-cut” and apparently very drunk white men and women in their early 20s. As the pair were attacked, the gang repeatedly jeered them as “faggots” and even stole one of their wallets. NBC News reports that the couple’s resulting injuries were gruesome

    Twitter to the rescue

    NYC in the 1980s.

    Love.

    Memories.


    After picking up a camera at the age of 15, Jamel Shabazz has been unknowingly become the first “visual documentarian” of hip hop. For over 30 years he’s captured the world around him. Every frame  of that world is a time portal that sparks emotion stemming from the scenes they represent. And if there is ever a glimpse into the foundations of street wear and its surrounding culture, it can be found in the pages of his first book.

    “Back In The Days” is real deal documentation as it pertains to the origins of hip hop, not to mention hip hop fashion. No 2oK a day models. No makeup artists. No food trucks. The models in the book don’t need runways because they lived the life of style. Jamel Shabazz was there to capture it all.”

    1. PSA: Please don’t try the BS “I have a Black friend” excuse on me again

    2. Related: Why so many White people fail to understand Ferguson

    3. Personal: Getting real tired of all the calm, analytic “what about this” discussions I hear every single time UNARMED Black people are murdered by the police

    white people make up the majority of the population, so therefore it would be logical for whites to have more white friends, like the numbers make sense

    also some areas are hugely white and others are more diverse. its says more about demographics than racism

    Yeah honestly that’s not a fair assumption, I grew up in an area with about 5 nonwhite people per class so exactly how was I supposed to make sure I had an “acceptable” amount of black friends? I don’t agree you should use any excuse to be racist, but the standards seem a bit skewed.

    I would rather have white people be friends with me because they like me as a person, instead of wanting to ease their white guilt

    no one consciously looks at race when making friends, unless you’re a racist and that’s a minority of people

    Places my friends come from: lacrosse team, videogames, classes, church, band
    Number of black people ive met in those populations: im guessing 3.
    I dont give a fuck what color your skin is, but im not going to go out of my way to be friends with someone just to appease another tumblr sjw.

    Dear followers, please allow me to translate most of the predominately White or #newBlackanti-sjw" bloggers (weird how that works out, huh?) out there like: a-little-fall-of-rain canofsexy and their ilk for you:

    1. “I have absolutely NO basic reading comprehension because I didn’t understand (or intentionally ignored) the completely asynchronous ***proportions*** mentioned and highlighted that was the point of the article”

    2. “Yeah I’m a racist, and I’m 100% comfortable in my racism”

    Borrowing from a recent post by sonofbaldwin, aptly titled:

    The Crier Deniers

    Some white people love to come into a conversation critiquing racism just to say that they don’t think it’s racism.


    Sometimes, they’re nice with it, like, “I honestly don’t think that was racism. I think it was just a little misunderstanding.”

    Sometimes, they’re nasty with it, like, “STOP PLAYING THE RACE CARD! EVERYTHING IS NOT ABOUT RACE!!!!”

    But one thing is true: The denial is like a meth h
    igh for them.

    It’s like they feel that in order to live a stress-free life, preserve their innocence, extend their euphoria, and protect their self-image, they must take up the mission of denying racism wherever it has been detected. 

    From the most subtle shades to the most blatant explosions, these folks get their whole lives from telling people of color that racism is just a figment of their imaginations. 

    They only way they will admit that racism is the cause of something is if telepathy can be utilized to read the accused’s mind. 

    Anything short of that and these folks will get down on their knees and cry, incredulous at the fact that you could even think that racism was involved.

    Because as
     James Baldwin said, crying is much easier than changing.

    (P.S. This also goes for some men folk in conversations about misogyny, some straight folks in conversations about queerantagonism, some non-disabled folks in conversations about ableism/disableism, and so on.)

    EDIT: this also applies to #newBlack people thirsty for White approval

    #newBlack was an insult at conception.
