But racism is over, you guyz!

Really! The Repug Party said so…


So why doesn’t anyone believe it?

Well, maybe because of shit like this

A dream weekend of fun and dancing with top industry professionals turned into a waking nightmare for 13-year-old Landry Thompson when she was suddenly seized by police and forcibly removed from the care of her legal guardians for no reason other than that they are two black men.

…or this

Three teenagers in Rochester, N.Y., said their coach told them to wait for a school bus to go to a basketball scrimmage when a policeman approached and told them to “disperse.”

When they did not leave, Raliek Redd, 16, Deaquon Carelock, 16, and Wan’tauhjs Weathers, 17, students at Edison Tech High School, were arrested.

Their parents had to pay $200 to bail them out. According to Rochester’s WHEC, “Police say they were blocking the sidewalk and the entrance to a store and they say they told the teens to leave several times. But according to the officer, the teens did not move from the area. The three teens were then placed under arrest.”

“We tried to tell them that we were waiting for the bus,” says Weathers. “We weren’t catching a city bus, we were catching a yellow bus. He didn’t care. He arrested us anyways.”

…or this.


Somehow, I don’t think this is quite what Rosa had in mind when she refused to get up.
