HBO's Watchmen Wants to Dig into the Heart of American Making You Like Cops

The first 15 minutes or so of Damon Lindelof’s Watchmen are some of the most agonizing moments of television this year.

Who Cares About You?

Opinion To put it more crudely, as Alchian did, people don't give a damn about you one way or another. USA – -( During my student days at a UCLA economics department faculty/graduate student coffee hour in the 1960s, I was chatting with Professor Armen Alchian, probably the greatest microeconomic theory economist of the 20th century. I was trying to impress Alchian with my knowledge of statistical type I and type II errors. I explained that unlike my wife, who assumed that ever...

Azur Lane Labeled an “Anti-Japanese Anime”

Japanese individuals who watched Azur Lane‘s anime deftly made their way onto Twitter to express that they believe the show is “anti-Japanese”, mostly due to the fact that the Japanese ship girls are antagonists in the show. It seems that some people online have regarded the anime as anti-Japanese due to protagonists Unicorn (American) and […]

Fears of a Latino invasion: demographic panic then and now

How are Donald Trump’s racist tweets about “rat-infested” Baltimore, his tacit endorsement of chants of “send her home” about representative Ilhan Omar at his rallies, and the mass shooting in El Paso, TX, targeting Latinos by a gunman concerned about a Mexican “invasion” of the United States connected? The idea of an immigrant invasion that would swamp the Anglo-Saxon population was originally popularized by Madison Grant (1865-1937), an early 20th-century eugenicist and conservationist, who wa...

Beto to journalism: ‘What the fuck?’

This post began with Beto O’Rourke’s lesson. Then I added Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez. And then Eddie Glaude Jr.’s. Reporter: Is there anything in your mind the President can do to make this better? Beto O’Rourke: What do you think? You know the shit he’s been saying. He’s been calling Mexican immigrants rapists. I don’t know, members of the press, what the fuck?

The Other Side Of The Street

Laura Ingraham Is Upset Paul Nehlen Is Censored On Social Media. Here’s Who He Is

Fox News host Laura Ingraham on Thursday argued in defense of, among others, Paul Nehlen, the former Republican congressional contender who’s advertised himself openly as a white nationalist and anti-Semite. In a discussion of social media censorship with Candace Owens, Ingraham put up a graphic of several people who’d been banned from social media platforms. “Facebook now, what do they monitor? ‘Hate’?” That “sounds good,” Ingraham said, before asserting that “hate” really describes “people ...

Trump's pick to head DHS immigration, Ken Cuccinelli, praised anti-Muslim extremist Brigitte Gabriel

Ken Cuccinelli is probably going to be confirmed soon as Donald Trump's new head of U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services. He once praised and amplified a racist rant attacking Muslims by Brigitte Tudor, aka Brigitte Gabriel, a prominent anti-Muslim organizer based in the United States. That's not good. Cuccinelli was a former Attorney General in my home state of Virginia. Progressive voters in Virginia know all about him. Brigitte Tudor — aka Brigitte Gabriel — is the founder of ACT for ...

Racist groups banned by Facebook change account names, get right back on, research shows

Researchers report that a number of white supremacist/white nationalist/violent racist crackpot groups like the 'Proud Boys' and 'Soldiers of Odin' (gag) are doing just fine and being very active on Facebook -- all they had to do is ever so slightly modify their names. Facebook's not-very-effective ban was a kludgy response to the mass shooting in Christchurch, New Zealand, the prelude to which was live-streamed on Facebook by the killer. “Over a month after Facebook announced a ban of a numbe...

Steve King: Treating All Cultures As ‘Equal’ Devalues Contributions Of Founding Fathers

Rep. Steve King (R-IA) earlier this week claimed that treating all cultures as “equal” would be “devaluing the contributions” of America’s Founding Fathers. King held a town hall Tuesday in Fort Dodge, Iowa, during which he was asked about his racist rhetoric around white nationalism. A constituent identified by the Des Moines Register as Christina Russell told the congressman that she took it personally when he “criminalized Mexican culture.” “Dehumanizing someone’s culture is not a joke,” R...

White woman pulls gun on black couple at campsite: "you don't belong here"

Army National Guard Sergeant Franklin Richardson and his wife, Jessica, took their dog to Oktibbeha County Lake in Mississippi to enjoy a picnic by the water. As soon as they arrived, a woman in a Kampgrounds of America shirt pulled a gun on them, said she was the manager, told the couple they didn't belong, and that they didn't have a reservation. Then she said "Get! Get!" as if shooing away animals. Buzzfeed: “Time stopped. Everything stopped. I was confused as to what was going on. It’s not l...

Why Is This Republican Congressman Following White Nationalists On Twitter?

Anonymous internet bigots are a dime a dozen. But when a member of Congress subscribes to a live feed of their thoughts, we take note. Sure, Rep. Paul Gosar (R-AZ) “follows” some usual suspects on his personal Twitter page. Among the 792 accounts the congressman keeps up with on the social network are national parks, think tanks, journalists and local restaurants in Arizona’s Fourth District.  The list includes Trump supporters, plenty of “Qanon” conspiracy theory believers, accounts with a...

When Forgiveness Is Exhausting

Most folks in my friend circle describe me as friendly, kind-hearted, encouraging, and upbeat. I concur. Generally, my hope-filled, faith-fueled drive presents as a seemingly selfless and sunny disposition. Typically, regarding people, I believe the best and hope for the best. So much so that I’ve been asked,   “How do you pretend to do that?” But honestly, I’m not faking it. Most of the time, I genuinely have a child-like outlook, which is not something I personally cultivated. I can’t take...

Border Patrol agent calls migrants "mindless murdering savages" before hitting one with his truck

In Tucson, Arizona, a Border Patrol agent called immigrants “mindless murdering savages” before ramming into one of these people with his truck. Said the agent later in his own defense, this sort of racist hate is simply "part of the agency's culture.” Doesn't excuse what he is alleged to have done back in 2017, and I don't doubt him. From the Washington Post, which cites original reporting by the Arizona Republic in Tucson: “PLEASE let us take the gloves off trump!” he texted another agent ...

Nordstrom removes $790 Gucci 'Indy Turban' that looks identical to Sikh headwear

Gucci’s new $800 ‘Indy Full Turban’ was not a good idea. “As a Sikh, I see this as a huge sign of disrespect and disregard toward Sikhism,” an observer tweeted about images of a thin white guy model strutting down the catwalk with the Gucci “Indy Turban” on. The turban is styled to look like to the headwear that followers of the Sikh faith wear. “The Sikh Turban is not a hot new accessory for white models but an article of faith for practising Sikhs,” Harjinder Singh Kukreja tweeted. ‏ “Your...

Tlaib: Maybe I Should ‘Talk Like A Fourth-Grader’ So ‘Racist Idiots’ Understand Me

Rep. Rashida Tlaib (D-MI) kept it blunt when she spoke on Monday night about the GOP’s outrage over her Holocaust comment.
