I hate how when Eric Garner was killed by the NYPD a few weeks ago just about every news agencies kept adding that he was selling untaxed cigs which completely goes against eye witness account. Now it’s become solidified with his death that he was arrested for selling untaxed cigarrettes so racist readers can be like “well he had it coming cus he did the illegal thing”, even though evidence and witnesses say otherwise.

Looks like de Blasio’s stats for his aintshitness are finally popping up with numbers. Appointing an islamophobic ass person as the new police chief was all we really needed to know that he wasn’t about shit. I’m glad the numbers are showing that for anyone who thought otherwise. Same shit, different face.

it would be dope as fuck to have more friends who are cool with complimenting and uplifting each other as opposed to constantly belittling one another. maybe in another life time.

white ppl think that u not arguin with them on topics of race means ur not smart enough to discuss it, when rlly it’s just bc they’re not smart enough to discuss it :///////////////////

loppett:

i don’t trust people who are super into “proper grammar” and “correct punctuation” because what lies just beyond that smug superiority is some sinister classism that gets acutely racist in a red hot minute, so for similar reasons I’m instantly wary of anyone who takes great pride in their love of “logic” and “intellect” 

It can kill you.

Sex in the Sink: gene swapping bacteria are making new superbugs (NBC News)

Bacteria appear to be having the microbial equivalent of inter-species sex in hospital sinks, swapping chunks of DNA that render them impervious to antibiotics, researchers reported Wednesday.
The findings may help explain the rise in drug-resistant “superbugs” in hospitals, and they suggest that they may sometimes be breeding on site, as opposed to being carried in by patients.







The team at the National Institutes of Health found carbapenem-resistant Enterobacteriaceae (CRE) that appeared to have exchanged pieces of genetic material called plasmids that gave them resistance to antibiotics. CRE resist most, if not all antibiotics, and they are becoming more common: they are found in about 4 percent of hospitals now and 18 percent of long-term care facilities.

Yep…bacteria will do it anywhere

Sheryl Underwood Tells Story of Catching The ‘Queens of Comedy’ Dogging Her Appearance and Ability On a Conference Call

"I was bruised, but I wasn’t broken." If this ain’t a ‘look at God’ moment! Shortly after Sheryl told her story, two of the three comedians responded. Hit dogs. 

"The Angry Black Woman is a racist trope used to deny black women their humanity. Black women aren’t allowed to be complicated — they’re just angry. Black women aren’t allowed to be upset or vulnerable — they’re just angry. Black women are not allowed justifiable reactions to the myriad of bullshit — racist, sexist and otherwise — that they face. Oh, you know those black ladies are just so angry all the time."
