Life hack: if someone makes a racist/sexist joke, say, with total seriousness, “I don’t get it, can you explain it”

Then watch them crash and burn

  • White people: We don't want any black people in our clubs, bars, parties, restaurants, schools, government, banks, neighborhoods, or offices
  • Black people: Well fuck ya'll then. We can go start our own shit that's just for black people and nobody else.
  • White people: ......
  • White people: Wow, excluding people based solely on their skin color? That's really racist and I am personally offended. How would you feel if we did that to you?

Black Dentist Forced To Resign All-White Dental Practice Over Support For Michael Brown

Dr. Misee Harris, a pediatric dentist best known as the “Black Bachelorette,” was forced to resign from her dental practice after supporting slain teen Michael Brown and the Ferguson, Missouri protesters on social media.

According to Tiffany Willis at Liberal America, Dr. Harris was beloved and respected by staff and patients at the dental practice where she had been offered a partnership, until those in charge turned on her.

Harris was the sole African American at the practice.

Dr. Harris was called into a meeting and presented with screenshots from her private Facebook page. Harris had blocked colleagues from accessing her account and she was told that a doctor who is a partner at the office, and who led the meeting, had a friend spy on her Facebook page.

The images were captured and sent to the doctor who led the meeting.

Misee was then told that some of her Facebook posts about recent racial issues in America were “unprofessional.” The biggest bone of contention to the partners was a cartoon (see graphic below) related to the recent police murders of several innocent African-Americans across the nation. The partner held up the picture and asked Misee “Do you think we (meaning Misee’s white colleagues) are all like this?”

This was the image her colleagues took issue with:

And now the dental practice consists solely of white employees. I’m pretty sure she’ll be alright, considering her Tweet below:

How dare an independent, educated black woman have an opinion. It must be a Republican thing:

Case in point: Right before the last presidential election, in 2012 Dr. Misee Harris was invited to a dinner with President Obama and First Lady Michelle Obama, as part of her involvement on an Obama campaign team. At that time, her employer advised her not to go because, “We’re all Republicans here,” and that “President Obama was the one responsible for the financial ruin of his office.” I was expressly told at the time, “People who wanted to work for him should not be siding with Obama.”

I hope she opens her own damn clinic and takes all their business.

I’m not a misandrist, but a few quick questions:

If men can’t even make their own sandwiches, why are they allowed to make bills in congress?

If men can’t control their own sexual urges, why are they allowed to control nations?

If a woman’s legs/shoulders are enough to distract a man, how can we trust them to stay focused on things like open heart surgery or judging a murder trial?

Again not a misandrist, some of my best friends are guys and i’m even dating one.

Test your friends by rapping “first things first” and see if they respond with “I eat your brains” or “i’m the realest”

But I thought “First things first I poppa freaks all the hunies, dummies, playboy bunnies, those wanting money…”

I want lgbt book stores, lgbt coffee houses, and lgbt theaters to replace lgbt bars as centers of community, places to meet people, and lgbt rights of passage.

YES. i am so fucking TIRED of every queer event being at a bar or another 21+ venue, especially when alcoholism is a thing for so many, esp. queer youth, and community isolation is such a major factor in so many suicides.
