So, I'm on Twitter right now, right?

I've got a special birthday mix playing on Black Athena out of Athens, Greece in a hour https://twitter.com/BlackAthenaGr and I was just passing the time re-blogging some Tumblr posts that link to my Twitter and FB.

One racist fucking troll on Twitter took issue with this post in particular:

After he tweeted me some more racist bullshit, which I will not repeat, I told him "Fuck the police," and sent his ass this:

Well he promptly tweeted me some more racist bullshit. So, instead of engaging with him because my friends in Greece just started their show, you can listen here: http://www.athina984.gr/liveplayer/air1044.html I simply muted any tweets coming from that bigoted asshole.

Today is too special to deal with racist bullshit, Am I Right?

By the way, I turn 53 tomorrow.

We all know that right wingers hate you...

But that hatred really comes out when you refuse to hate yourself.

About to drop that mixtape

Something tells me that their hearts really aren't in it…

Big Mistake...

Now taking nominees for the 8th Annual Late H. Lee Atwater Award for Right Wing Evil

In about a week, at Midnight on Halloween, the desiccated corpse of the Late H. Lee Atwater will rise from his clammy grave in South Cakalacka and present the award to the person or persons who have most exemplified the very personage of right wing evil for 2014.

You, my ghosties and goblins, have a key role to play in this, as it will be you who will decide who will be the recipient or recipients of the hallowed title of Most Evil Right Winger.

For the last two years in a row the winners have been that despicable two-headed monster of unmitigated evil, known as The Koch Brothers: http://www.democraticunderground.com/10023953376

This year, the winner could be anyone, but it's up to you to decide who that will be. Voting will happen on Devil's Night, Halloween Eve.

So give me your nominees, creepers and creepettes, and at the stroke of Midnight on Halloween, we will come together to summon the late Godfather of Right Wing Evil himself, The Late H. Lee Atwater, to bring the winner into his clammy embrace.

US Court Says it’s Okay for Police Departments to Refuse to Hire Someone who is Too Smart

Ever wonder why cops yell “quit resisting” as they beat a person who’s not resisting? Or why they shoot people who pose no threat? Maybe the answer is right in front of us.

The Wonderlic Cognitive Ability Test is a popular group intelligence test used to assess the aptitude of prospective employees for learning and problem-solving in a range of occupations. Throughout both the U.S. and Canada, many police forces require candidates to take this test as one of the qualifications prior to being hired.

The standard range of scores applied for police officers is a score between 20 and 27. According to ABC News, The average score nationally for police officers is 21 to 22, the equivalent of an IQ of 104, or just a little above average. A perfect score on the Wonderlic is a 50.

On March 16, 1996 Robert Jordan from Connecticut, and 500 others underwent a written screening process which included the Wonderlic Test, conducted by the Law Enforcement Council of Southeastern Connecticut, Inc. (“LEC”), a coalition of fourteen cities and towns, in order to apply for a position as a police officer.

Several months later Jordan learned that the city of New London started interviewing candidates. After not hearing from them, Jordan inquired as to why he was passed over.

Jordan eventually learned from assistant city manager Keith Harrigan that he would not be interviewed because he “didn’t fit the profile.”
