I tried to check out the website for the National African America Gun Association at work but it was blocked by the server for "Violent Content". The NRA site is wide open, no problem.
Well, that settles it. Black people are violent and white people need guns to defend themselves from those savages.

I'd believe the above statement more if I hadn't read some of my neighbour's Facebook posts..........

Spencer also tweeted lyrics to a Cabaret song in regards to his vision for a white future. Jason Kander pointed this out to him. It was glorious:

Hey buddy, that song you love was written by my uncle. He's been married to my other uncle for 40 years. And he's a Jew.

Sing it proud.

What will it take for a policeman to be convicted of murder?

Killing a rich white man, preferably famous.

One law for them
"The only thing that really occurs to me that I can say on this is to point out how fascinating it is that the Hassan-i-Sabbah archetype keeps turning up over and over again ... He disappears up into the mountains and is never seen again. Believe me, he'll never be seen again. He'll live forever because of that."

I heard this morning that pregnant woman in Seattle, who called the police because she thought someone was breaking into her house, was killed in front of her two kids by the cops. They are claiming she had a knife. That's their Get Out of Jail Free card, I guess.

Kory - have you heard anything about this?

Yeah, that was big news here. At first, I was going to say it was old news, because Deborah Jacobs (our mutual acquaintance) is head of oversight for the King County Sheriff's Department and she told me a very similar story almost a year ago. Then I saw which one you were talking about.

Can someone explain to me the criticism about this confederacy show that's going to be on HBO? The criticism/assumption is that it'll, I guess, glamourize or make palatable the idea of slavery. But does that have to be so? Why couldn't it be a means of highlighting how much institutional racism and exploitative labour practices actually exist, to emphasize the hypocrisy of American rhetoric of freedom and equality? I assume I'm just missing something, but I'm not seeing where a show with this concept necessarily precludes critique of social reality.

I think it's mistrust that the Game of Thrones guys are doing it. They haven't evinced a very deep understanding of race or gender issues on their current show.

Ah, okay. My very superficial reading on the controversy suggested that it was the concept itself that was considered offensive, which seemed a bit odd to me. I guess kind of like the Secret Empire/Cap is a Nazi thing going on. It has the potential to be a useful critique of the corruption of American institutions and values, but the story is fucking boring.
