LGBT folk of colour have to deal with some painfully infuriating situations when it comes to dating. Check out these interviews by @BenInLDN to get a sense of how (internalised) racism, misogyny, and homo/transphobia shape many of our lives and intimacies. https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/

Trump’s First 3 Years Created 1.5 Million Fewer Jobs Than Obama’s Last 3
MANCHESTER, N.H. – As President Donald Trump takes the stage at his reelection rally here Monday and boasts of his economic record, there is one statistic he is likely to omit: He created 1.5 million fewer jobs in his first three years in office than predecessor Barack Obama did in his final three.
Newly revised figures from Trump’s own Department of Labor show that 6.6 million new jobs were created in the first 36 months of Trump’s tenure, compared with 8.1 million in the final 36 months of Obama’s ― a decline of 19% under Trump, according to a HuffPost analysis. https://www.yahoo.com/huffpost/trump-...

@this_is_amerikkka This racist ignorant muthafuxa needs to be fired and prosecuted immediately! It's on thing to allow free speech in the streets but this should not be acceptable in the our children's classrooms. White supremacy is hate and ignorance. This is most definitely not what white kids need to being taught! The only way to send the message is to prosecute anyone who uses the classrooms to teach hate and division. This is not why I send my children to school! https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/
@atlblackstar) The Chicago Police Department is facing backlash for yet another botched raid after a newly uncovered disturbing video shows officers interrogating and pointing their weapons at innocent children.
Authorities not only entered the wrong home, they then questioned the children without an adult present. Local station CBS 2 obtained the footage as part of its ongoing investigation into wrong raids by the city’s police. The outlet has secured bodycam video from wrong raids in the past, but clips from two attacks on Krystal Archie’s home last year shows officers pointing their guns directly at her children. “They’re handling heavy artillery,” Archie said of police. “It would’ve taken one slip of your finger and my children would not be here.” According to CBS 2, the family’s home was raided a total of three times — once in February, the second time in April, and again in May of last year. The cops were reportedly on the hunt for a man Archie and her family say they do not kno…
Discriminatory housing practices are leading to the devaluation of Black Americans 2020
Housing is just one area where Black Americans suffer from discriminatory public policies. Throughout the United States, homes in Black neighborhoods are priced around 23 percent less than those in white neighborhoods. That is a difference of nearly $50,000 per home which totals to about $156 billion in lost assets. https://www.brookings.edu/blog/the-av...
Forget the slick ads. Watch Bloomberg flounder when challenged about stop and frisk. And that's just one piece of his barely-examined record of racism, sexism, transphobia, authoritarianism, elitism, and oligarchy. Nominating him would probably be the end of the Democratic Party. https://www.patreon.com/theiconiumfou...
Bloomberg once blamed end of ‘redlining’ for 2008 economic collapse
WASHINGTON (AP) — At the height of the 2008 economic collapse, then-New York Mayor Michael Bloomberg said the elimination of a discriminatory housing practice known as “redlining” was responsible for instigating the meltdown.
“It all started back when there was a lot of pressure on banks to make loans to everyone,” Bloomberg said at a forum that was hosted by Georgetown University in September 2008. “Redlining, if you remember, was the term where banks took whole neighborhoods and said, ‘People in these neighborhoods are poor, they’re not going to be able to pay off their mortgages, tell your salesmen don’t go into those areas.'” https://www.pbs.org/newshour/politics...

Michael Bloomberg apologized Sunday for the New York Police Department's use of "stop and frisk," a policing tactic the former mayor and potential 2020 candidate has repeatedly defended as helping to lower the murder rate during his time in office while critics have slammed the measure as racist because it overwhelmingly impacts men of color. https://www.cnn.com/2019/11/17/politi...

Who turns sickness into racism? White people have killed millions of indigenous peoples. Wiping out entire populations throughout history then have the audacity to make fun of other cultures who are infected. https://www.whytheracecardisplayed.com/
European Diseases: The diseases brought to this continent by the Europeans included bubonic plague, chicken pox, pneumonic plague, cholera, diphtheria, influenza, measles, scarlet fever, smallpox, typhus, tuberculosis, and whooping cough.A year later, Columbus built his first town on the nearby island of Hispaniola, where the Taino numbered at least 60,000 and possibly as many as 8 million, according to some estimates. But by 1548, the Taino population there had plummeted to less than 500. Lacking immunity to Old World pathogens carried by the Spanish, Hispaniola’s indigenous inhabitants fell victim to terrible plagues of smallpox, influenza, and other viruses.
