Friday News Round Up!

It’s Friday again! Check it out y’all…

Chicago’s police department is super racist, but we already knew that.

Tons of people got arrested for protesting Citizens United. I’m glad there are people willing to get arrested for the cause… jail terrifies me.

Why Erykah, why? Check out VSB’s post about who should really be blamed when children are sexualized and abused. Hint: it’s NOT the children.

I sadly could not ignore the shitshow that was Buzzfeed’s video of black people asking other black people really stupid questions. Here is VSB’s response. And if you haven’t already, check out Mike’s break down.  

Universal basic income? Yes, please.

Turns out actually talking to people can change minds. But who wants to talk to people? This activist group is doing the hard work.

The war on drugs is a failure. Even in the prisons.

What did we miss? Let us know in the comments.

    Actually I think the point is when you try to change minds, you can’t start by calling folks “bigots.”

    Thanks for the roundup.
