Arizona County tells Spanish-speaking voters to vote on the wrong date.
why are we not in a fucking outrage about this
wait, wtf is this?
voter fraud, that is what it is.
The voter purges have resulted in roughly 60% of black voters in that city no longer being registered. That’s 41% of the city’s total votes in 2008. Some perspective on it from reddit user BiscuitCrisps:
You know, back when I lived in a majority-black voter ward, I got purged from the voter rollsevery single year. And every year, I had to trudge back to the registrar of voters, and show them a driver’s license and two months of utility bills to prove that I still lived where I was registered. It’s why I didn’t vote from 1999-2001. I just got sick of re-proving my residence over and over.
My first reaction was: “Fucking incompetent bureaucratic machine”
Then, I moved to a majority-white voter ward … I registeredonce. I haven’t been purged once in the past seven years.
I used to say: “Never attribute to malice that which is adequately explained by stupidity”.
I’m now inclined to chalk the purging up to malice.
This whole thing is fucked.
Black, trans, brown, “hispanic sounding names”, etc, are all getting purged. It’s disgusting.
Oh cool I’m a fraudster in Oklahoma. “Citing the Bible, Judge Bill Graves says transgender men and women are changing their names for ‘fraudulent purposes’”
This only has 6 notes because… Why? This is important people.
If you’re cis you can change your name to Optimus Prime and no one asks to see your alt mode.
At the bottom of the linked article, there is a petition asking this judge to resign.

yeahhhhhhhhhh they don’t have a damn clue
Can someone please explain why, in 2012, a game titled “Whore of the Orient” is being made?
Because it’s not like us East Asian women aren’t placed in stereotypical roles or anything. I mean, we’re all OBVIOUSLY quiet, subservient women and/or Dragon Ladies.
It’s set in Shanghai in 1936 and features a “group of Western cops hopelessly trying to keep the lid on and keep the peace.” Because it’s not like white people have ever colonized and forced their views onto China.
Fuck this shit. Fuck Team Bondi, fuck WB Games for picking this up, fuck everyone involved with this project.
this is disgusting
but PoC totes have awesome representation why would a game like arkh need to exist guiseeee
Shout out to Victoria’s Secret for their new line of “Far East inspired” lingerie called Go East!
It must’ve been really hard to NOT INCLUDE A SINGLE FUCKING ASIAN MODEL IN THE ENTIRE FUCKING COLLECTION of “Asian” lingerie.
Bomb the hell out of Victoria’s Secret. Don’t let them get away with this.
And for funsies take their survey and give them a piece of your mind. Let them know that they will lose business over this. +5pts if you name the Go East collection as your reason for your customer dissatisfaction.
how the fuck does any of this shit look remotely Asian
“These data are the first to demonstrate that not only do whites think
more progress has been made toward equality than do blacks, but whites
also now believe that this progress is linked to a new inequality – at
their expense,” note Norton and Sommers. Whites see racial equality as
a zero sum game, in which gains for one group mean losses for the

Approximately 50 south Tel Aviv residents protested last night against the presence of African asylum seekers in their neighborhoods.
Protesters waved Israeli flags and held signs that read “I voted for Bibi and I got screwed,” “We want a solution here and now,” and “Bibi, you asked [for us] not to take the law into [our] hands. What have you done?” Another sign punned on the Hebrew word for minister (sar) to declare Interior Minister Eli Yishai a “Tzar” who will face “Judgment Day.”
The group marched to the police station in Jaffa and called on the state to deport African refugees.
Some of the demonstrators wore surgical masks. Protesters explained that they were meant to symbolize that Africans carry contagious diseases, a claim Yishai made in 2009.
The protest was smaller than previous demonstrations of its kind, giving the impression, perhaps, that things have quieted down. But there have nonetheless been isolated incidents of violence against African asylum seekers in recent weeks. In early June, following the May 23 race riots in south Tel Aviv that left dozens of Africans injured, a Sudanese refugee was attacked in south Tel Aviv. According to the Hotline for Migrant Workers, the injuries were so severe the man had to be hospitalized.
Less than two weeks ago, a Jerusalem apartment that is home to Eritrean refugees was set on fire. Two people were injured in the attack, including a pregnant woman.
Israel is home to around 60,000 African asylum seekers, a majority of whom have fled to Israel from Eritrea and Sudan. The state is currently deporting South Sudanese and Yishai and other government officials have vowed to rid the country of Africans. A massive prison camp for Africans is currently being built in the south of Israel.
Like in America we have code words for black people or minorities so that people can say racist things without being racist like “people shouldn’t be welfare queens” or whatever so it amazes me that A GROUP OF PEOPLE CAN BE THIS BLATANTLY RACIST WITHOUT BEING ASHAMED.
‘AFRICANS CARRY DISEASES’???
WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU
WHAT THE FUUUUUUUUUUUUU-
My people. I am so ashamed of you. I am SO ashamed. As a Jewish person I never been pro Israel. I can’t say I’m anti because that doesn’t feel right, but…let’s just say I’m pro Palestine, if that makes sense.
This is disgusting.
The short memories we seem to have…remember how the Holocaust started? Remember that?
The above is why I’m a member of the Sashi Fan Club.
Fukken Israel, bruh…
This White chick is tagging random photos of herself with ‘nigger’ and ‘nigga’, having her racist-ass handed to her by righteously angry Black people, and then talks about how she’s ~*disabled*~ and uploads a picture of herself shedding crocodile tears. I’m not here for that. White disabled people pull this racist, identity-baiting shit all of the fucking time. You don’t get a bly for your consistent acts of ignorance and then try to sit here and poke my feelings about you having a disorder. Chile boo.
lol, people telling her not to kill herself too, like awww. whatever child.
And this is why I don’t trust white disability discourse~!
