Just block him now to prevent the attention this troll obviously wants.

This is 96-year-old Raúl Héctor Castro — a former Arizona Governor and a U.S. citizen — who was detained by border patrol in 100 degree heat.
What makes this worse? Guess how many times he’s been detained.
But by all means, keep telling me the border patrol laws aren’t racist, guys.
sweet florida -_-
Land of injustice, we salute you.
racist justice system is fucking messed up. and people say justice will be served on those who deserve it. haha, fuck that, it ain’t true.
zimmerman: protected by the stand your ground law, when it has been established that he provoked the conflict by following trayvon and going up to him after being told by police to stay away
alexander: denied all protection via stand your ground even though she had to retreat to a garage to avoid her attacker and realized there was no way out but the front door (judge said ‘it doesnt make sense you felt like you were being attacked or else you wouldnt have come back into the house’)

I’ve seen this image floating around a lot lately, and it troubles me. It strikes me as “well my Black friend said it was OK” rhetoric that allows white conservatives to feel better about themselves for being terrible.
It doesn’t make me uncomfortable as a white liberal. I know the history of the Democratic party and Planned Parenthood. But I also know about Reagan’s racist War on Drugs and Welfare Queen fables, Santorum’s “no food stamps for blah people / Obama is a government nig UH” stance, and how the GOP has spent the past decade or so passing laws that specifically target PoC and other marginalized groups.
I don’t know why the actions of Democrats in the past trump those of Republicans now. And I especially don’t know why white conservatives feel the need to post a picture of a Black man (which could very easily be a MOTHERFUCKING STOCK PHOTO with some text on it) and say, “See, you’re the REAL racists!!!111”
I’d say it is definitely a stock photo with text slapped on it.
Here is the same guy in another similar image with a totally different message
And then here he is in a Cymbalta ad
With the power of stock photography you can make anyone say pretty much anything.
HAHAHHAHAHAHHAHAH, oh my god, that Cymbalta ad slayed me. Yeppp, conservatives are circulating a photo of a Cymbalta ad model as justification for their racism. -Jess
A Tale Of Two Hoodies - a controversial painting by artist/activist Michael D’Antuono.
Inspired by the Trayvon Martin case, this painting symbolizes the travesty of racially profiling innocent children and how present day prejudices affect policy.

i believe the same could be said about sexists.
or any other -ist/douchebag.
