This one guy says that Obama can take rural voters by introducing himself to them. He also outlines the parallels between inner city people and rural people.

Mothers choose to feed children, keep roofs over their heads instead of opting out of the workforce.
Idea from slate; words my own. You can forward this to your mom:

Some asshat officer beat up a black transwoman. Shame on him. If he whines about being fired, he will be mocked.

I don't get what's with the ballyhoo about the transwoman being an omgcriminal, it's not like she was a pimp or a baby rapist, I can't think of a serious way to say this, but prostitution- it's not a real crime anyway.
White woman is embarrassed about cross burnings, some weirdness comes up.
Sign of white privilege or just general stupidity?
Angry black women!! In multicul, we were talking about how labeling people as angry black women, or fiery latinas helps silence them. You don't want to be a scary angry black woman, shove all your actual complaints to the side, and let white men take the floor with the horror of the fact that if they say something offensive, people become offended!

According to my mom, in 1978, a woman she knew was told that she couldn't buy cotton futures, and that she had to buy them in her husband's name.
Baby's first high heels. Because they are never too young for girly crap. A total lack of fashion sense doesn't make babies become prostitutes, but horrible fashion is still horrible!

Pet peeve- I hate it when people say stuff like Obama will save us from those bad negros what with their tacky outfits. This guy says it better than me, but really, he's a politician, not a style consultant to black teens. Now, I was a very nice, cleancut teen, but I have to admit that when I went to the mall, what politicians wore did not exactly influence me. When my brother was dying his hair with koolaid[this is OK because white teens were doing it, but if most black teens were dying their hair with koolaid, it'd be the work of the devil] I don't think he thought "well, all the 40 year old politicians dye their hair with kool aid" and for god's sake, really, if you don't believe in working hard in school[although I don't believe that most blacks are against doing well in school] is Obama going to make you stop cutting class and start doing your homework? I mean, I don't think humans work like that. John Kerry and Bill Clinton were both white men who went to college and did well, but in TN, many white children are still blowing off school and not doing their homework.

Not to mention the white 'college kids' who are not coming to class and are deciding to sleep off hangovers instead.

You know, maybe we should start email forwards saying that McCain is really a robotic death machine, killing lil white babies. Also, that he's a secret dinosaur.
Women do well in tech, but hostile environments cause them to drop out. Same with people of color. I loved my last job, but I didn't need to deal with that amount of racism for that amount of pay!
You know, I've never gotten speeches like this. I understand it's to appeal to white folks and the black middle class, but seriously, does anyone think that people with dysfunctional behavior are going to not do it because Obama said not to? And of course, in the comments, we have the same old themes of welfare, victimhood, responsibility, which shows that this just gets everybody off the hook! I mean seriously, saying well, stop being such a victim! on the internet isn't going to do anything in our nation's poor areas. Not to mention, plenty of white women on welfare, and plenty of white men tossing their kids off for a hot new ride and then whining that their exwife is too mean.

I mean, I don't think that thousands of black men randomly just said 'let's abandon our kids' and not to mention, not being officially married doesn't mean you don't interact with or give financial help to your kids. I have no idea what the answer is, but we've been hearing speeches like this for years, which is nice and helps get out the donations and the votes, I understand Obama is a politician, but when people on the ground think that's going to help, they are deluded.
Work related deaths greater among Hispanics

Suicide risks among Latino teens.

Your kink ain't OK! Keep your sex off babies!

Also, I'm NEVER riding a bike naked again!

It's summer! I plan to read chick lit, watch magical girl shows, and blog only about naked chicks on bikes for weeks on end.

Racist's Rogue Gallery

Well, there's plenty of different sorts of racists. Here's a few of them I've observed

The we are the world racist:

Habitat: Everywhere

Main attacks: we're all just people! I'm colorblind!

Comments: The most annoying type of racist by far. So self deluded they try to water down the history, culture and vibrancy of the human race so that they don't have to acknowledge the very real and horrible problems there are in this world.

The Both Sides Racist

Habitat: They tend to be faux liberals

Main attacks: well...there's been bad things on both sides...

Comments: Pretty annoying as jumbling together every single time a person of color acted in less than a perfect way and systemic oppression really obscures the latter. Inevitably, the greater focus will be on that one time that that kid in high school called someone a honky and not say, on our borked justice system.

I hope for this to become a regular feature
It's too bad that people think white folks and black folks sitting together in the cafeteria is a real effort to fight racism. The kid here is a high schooler, and so being this naive is OK for a while, but if he's 30, and still thinks that black folks sitting together is a big deal, he'll be a douchebag.

Also, there's some prime stupid in these comments.
50% of prisoners in America are in jail for drug related offenses- from 30 Days. Jail episode.
