Today in racism

He's back on CNN's front page (although the farthest from the headlines as possible) as his medical school finds tons of other inappropriate pictures in their old yearbooks. (Not just his inappropriate photo.)

Here's the best part:
Dr. William Elwood, who worked with others on the layout for the 1984 yearbook, told CNN that photos for personal pages were chosen by the individual student.


He fucking picked that photo to be displayed!

I assumed that from the beginning. We had something similar in our HS for the graduating seniors.

Latest is VA AG has a picture in blackface floating around as well. Twitter has been very entertaining...

This is a strange story. Why say anything about this publicly? Seems like it has more potential to get you in trouble than not. However, it's a great example of how people develop bias.


Called it. Neeson is doing TV show circuits to explain that he isn't racist because people are now calling him racist.

Virginia's situation is so important CNN has labeled it "Virginia in crisis and is giving it live updates. However, they still buried it in the third column of their site.

I guess him being a Democrat really kills its worthiness as news. Anyway, he's again back to admitting it was him.

He knows he's safe. The 4th in line is a Republican. All will be forgiven.

Black guy now defending himself because his comments on Neeson seems like a defense of him.

This is why things don't get better. Discussion is pointless and impossible.

Black girl hilariously finds out she's white and proceeds to display her bigotry.

FF to 5:00 on the nose to see her finding out. Also, some of the comments are hilarious.

I'm haplogroup H, too. Well, this only means she's at least a tiny bit white. Just means way down she has a white (who knows how many great) grandmother.

According to her mom they "just started being black four generations ago". It's later in the video after she's calmed down.

I remember a story a few months back where they were doing free ancestry tests on blacks in the NYC area (I think it was) and a lot of folks were pretty pissed. Many were finding out that not only did they have white ancestry, but they were predominately of white ancestry. It can play on a person's psyche. I think our view of our ancestry will change now that we have these tests and are probably only 10 to 20 years from these being part of everyones medical history.

Do these people think human life started in different places? We're ALL related.

Their racial identity playing such a huge part in their life would seem to imply they're quite racist.

Yeah I don't get it. It's never been a big thing in our family. But hey, that's just my white privilege, right?

We haven't just evolved physically. We've evolved mentally. Those humans that banded together and felt greater loyalty to their tribe survived. And they reproduced. And that feeling of tribal loyalty has been strengthened for thousands of years.

To me that's not blackface. That's just makeup.

See, now that is blackface.

I have to admit, the red circle around the lips pretty much seals the deal.

I just feel like people need to understand intent/impact/etc, rather than "any darkening makeup is racist"

Gay black actor attacked in Chicago a little while ago, or maybe not?

Investigators believe Jussie Smollett and the non-cooperating witnesses in last month’s alleged attack of the Empire actor “potentially staged the attack,” a source with intimate knowledge of the investigation tells CBS 2 Investigator Brad Edwards.

Chicago police raided the home of two “persons of interest” Wednesday night, a relative of those men says.

Holy shit! Called it!

My wife was watching one of those morning shows when this first was reported, and I told her something sounded suspicious about it.
