I started a blog for quotes I've collected through the years (momentsinreading.tumblr.com) , but then I realized I had other things I wanted to share besides quotes, so...this. I'm in my 20s, living in the US, and I like lots of things: Arrested Development, Sherlock Holmes, history, The Beatles, archaeology, reading, Harry Potter, tea, Agatha Christie, Muppets, art/art history, Jane Austen, Bob's Burgers, architecture, my family, Star Wars, Disney, and LOST. This blog will be all of the above and more.
Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).
But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.
So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”
I’m feeling really bummed out about the passing of Robin Williams.
