Police said the 18-year-old man who wrestled a gun away from an officer at Beaverton City Hall and fired off a shot last week was high on mushrooms and had superhuman strength.
Get into this.
An 18-year-old white dudebro high on mushrooms breaks into a government building acting wild as fuck.
Dudebro goes BUCK on several police officers.
During his all-out bucktitude, he manages to break out of handcuffs and grab a police officer’s gun.
HE FIRES OFF A SHOT from this gun.
A gang of the keystone cops finally subdue him and take his precious ofay ass off to be booked.
Let’s imagine how this shit would have gone down if dudebro was black:
"Police officers shot and killed a black man acting erratically in a government building yesterday. They fired a total of 1,169 times. They said he made furtive movements and that his keys looked like a gun. An autopsy revealed that the man was on crack, heroin, and the marijuana, and his blood alcohol was 856 times the legal limit. Police say he has a criminal record dating back to 1956, before even his parents were born."
This is implicit and institutionalized white supremacy in action.

Okay thats actually not fair. We will never know how those officers acted if the suspect had been black because he wasnt. You can not asume that just because we have seen many cases of police brutality based on racism that every cop and every station or postion is like that. Even though there are quite a few dick bags still avoiding justice because of a biased system and corrupt co workers, that doesnr make everyone every where with a badge racist. So since there is absolutely no way to know how the officers would have treated a black man in this situation, I refuse to assume that they would have been racist assholes based solely on that fact that there are cops who are. Remember what we leared about asuming, it makes an ass out of you and me.
The white person above ^ said that shit like we don’t have COUNTLESS examples that contradict their fairytale version of events.
Isn’t it amazing how white people can wade through MOUNDS of evidence of injustice JUST to say how it isn’t fair to point out implicit and institutionalized racism?
Like, for them, the MOST important thing is to ensure Whiteness is defended and racism is eliminated as a cause for something.
That’s how you can tell when an ofay feels implicated.
My grandmother used to say, “A hit dog will holler.”
She ain’t NEVER lied.
Most white folks make it their BUSINESS to holler.
All this fucking racism in America, but, mysteriously, not a single racist to be found.
The absence of women in history is man made.
just look at babe ruth’s face tho
i love it
pure hater shit
Jackie Mitchell…a bad ass lady I had never heard of.
From her Wikipedia page: “Seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, brought in to pitch in the first inning after the starting pitcher had given up a double and a single, faced Babe Ruth. After taking a ball, Ruth swung and missed at the next two pitches. Mitchell’s fourth pitch to Ruth was a called third strike. Babe Ruth glared and verbally abused the umpire before being led away by his teammates to sit to wait for another batting turn. The crowd roared for Jackie. Babe Ruth was quoted in a Chattanooga newspaper as having said:
"I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."
Next up was the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig, who swung through the first three pitches to strike out. Jackie Mitchell became famous for striking out two of the greatest baseball players in history.
A few days after Mitchell struck out Ruth and Gehrig, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract and declared women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.” Mitchell continued to play professionally,barnstorming with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their very long hair and long beards. While travelling with the House of David team, she would sometimes wear a fake beard for publicity.”
TL;DR: teenage girl strikes out two of the greatest baseball players ever, teenage girl gets her contract voided, teenage girl plays baseball wearing fake beard
These guys were so fucking injured by a teenage girl’s awesomeness that they literally threw a hissyfit and hung up a sign that said “NO GIRLS.”
They gave up.
They couldn’t handle it.
Teenage girls are amazing.
Until the lion has his historian, the hunter will always be the hero.
This proverb exists in different forms in many parts of Africa
"Until lions have their own historians, tales of the hunt shall always glorify the hunter" (Igbo, Nigeria).
"Until lions start writing down their own stories, the hunters will always be the heroes" (Kenya and Zimbabwe).
Black/African history has always being taught/told from the perspective of White American/European colonisers. We need to reclaim our history and culture. No more white African Queens, Kings and Gods, there needs to be a true representation of African history and culture in the media.
LOOK AT THIS. LOOK AT THIS, MEN WHO DO THIS, AND FEEL FOOLISH
Do you see how ridiculous this looks? How obscene?
See, the problem with these is that men have oppressive power over women. So when men do these things, there’s an element of threat and fear for women. Even if you reverse it like this, men aren’t going to see it the same way. They’re just going to go, “Damn, I wish women would do that to me!”
If you want to see men uncomfortable, replace the women with other men.
