My BF is white, and I have specifically told him NOT to interfere when (not if, because it has already happened) racists assholes bring it. I put it down hard everywhere I go, and a racist dipshit can get squashed under all this Black womanhood glory. I want to be the one to handle it the way I want to, not the way my White BF wants to. I made it clear to him that I OWN situations like this and he needs to take a seat. And guess what?! He respects that and pulls up a chair. I never want to be seen as needing a man to “defend” me.
I’m more concerned with why people are all up in this “relationship,” if it can be called that already, as some reports say they are newly hanging out and not steady/boyfriend-girlfriend. Maybe SHE has asked him not to comment. Maybe they need time to talk about it between themselves, just like my BF and I did. In fact, five years into my friendship with BF, and we STILL talk about these things. In fact, we talked about it at dinner just last night. Maybe we all need to understand that neither she nor he owe us anything.
- White people to Asian people: We don't trust you, so we're going to put you in internment camps. Go back to where you came from.
- White people to Latinx people: You're not allowed to come into this country. We don't want you.
- White people to Black people: You can't use that bathroom or that school. That's for us. Use that other one.
- White people: Wow, you using the term "people of color" is awfully divisive. Why are you making this an "us versus them" thing?

Former Marine turned photographer Joel Parés’ series Judging America used real people dressed as stereotypes to remind us to not judge a person based on their tattoos, clothing, ethnicity, profession, or sexual orientation, but on their merits.
"She taught me how to dance. We actually met at a graduation party. I was the only one not on the dance floor, and her friend bet her that she couldn’t get me to dance. I’d already said ‘no’ to ten girls, but she talked me into it. We were together 55 years. She died eight years ago, but I still dance every day."

Police in L.A. County are drastically expanding the types of personal data they collect.
Iris scans, palm prints, mugshots, fingerprints and potentially audio recordings will all be stored in a massive new database that will feed into the FBI.
So why has the public been kept in the dark? Read our new investigation.
Q:I'll start believing in good cops when they start turning in bad cops.
Don’t hold your breath.
When “good” cops turn in bad cops, they suffer a lot of consequences, which is why we rarely see “good” cops turn in other officers.
- They are assigned shitty shifts.
- They are reassigned to areas far from home.
- They are shut out. Don’t hear about meetings, and other info needed to do the job.
- Back-up is “tied up” and cannot make it to the scene to assist them. When you are chasing down an armed felon, no one shows.
- Their things start disappearing.
- They are lied on and other officers file bogus complaints against them.
- They suddenly face disciplinary write-ups where none existed before and for things other officers do routinely, without consequence.
In short, their careers are pretty much shit. Many of them are forced out. It comes down to a matter of self-sacrifice and who is willing to do it.
