Gun culture in America: people with guns looking for trouble while not respecting the rights of others and bolstering confrontational lawlessness.

Scofflaws do not need snipers as backup. Campus security should not be attacking peaceful students on their own campus.

States That Forbid Affirmative Action See Significant Drop In Black and Hispanic Enrollment

liberalsarecool:

"In a fractured decision…, the Supreme Court on Tuesday upheld a Michigan constitutional amendment that bans affirmative action in admissions to the state’s public universities. The 6-to-2 ruling effectively endorsed similar measures in seven other states. It may also encourage more states to enact measures banning the use of race in admissions or to consider race-neutral alternatives to ensure diversity. States that forbid affirmative action in higher education, like Florida and California, as well as Michigan, have seen a significant drop in the enrollment of black and Hispanic students in their most selective colleges and universities….

Justice Sonia Sotomayor, in the longest, most passionate and most significant dissent of her career, said the Constitution required special vigilance in light of the history of slavery, Jim Crow and ‘recent examples of discriminatory changes to state voting laws.’ Her opinion, longer than the four other opinions combined, appeared to reflect her own experiences….”

Where is the collective “What the fuck?” outcry? This is not a theory. This is empirical evidence. How the fuck do we allow popular vote to decide the protections of a minority? Jim Crow all over again.

The Right Wing loves their “characters”. You see it in their wannabe hunters and cowboys on TV, and in politics. #Reagan #WBush #Palin
A shorter Tea Party/Right Wing: white males can do no wrong.

After several centuries of brutal anti-black racism and structural white privilege, apparently 50 years of modest civil rights progress was too unbearable for many “aggrieved” white people. Gutting the Voting Rights Act, weakening Affirmative Action and the proliferation of Stand Your Ground laws are each part of an unmistakable conservative effort to return all of America to a pre-civil rights, antebellum confederacy where “states rights,” judicial nullification and Jim Crow etiquette are the norm. Again.

Never underestimate the brutality of privilege, and the constant need to be advantaged by conservative white Americans.
