Penn Badgley Shows Us the Perfect Way to be a White Ally

Here's what to do: Stop talking; just listen.

Here's what to say to accodlades for being involved: "Thanks, but it's not about me."

That's what Penn Badgley, former star of CW's Gossip Girl and current member of the band Mothxr, recommends white people do to effectively support racial justice movements. In an exclusive video for Mic, Badgley explains, "The most important thing to acknowledge right now ... is that you're asking a white male celebrity why it's important to him to participate in a movement that is not about him."

Badgley recorded the short video after his activism at #MillionsMarchNYC, highlighted by MSNBC Shift's Krystal Clear.

Darth Cheney explains...

Cuban exiles and GOPers need to realize that the Cold War ended more than two decades ago

New horizons create new opportunities.

The purpose of torture...

An impotent show of bravado.

Once you start torturing, you've already lost. Torturing someone is just the tacit admission that you're weak. Torturing is just the pathological inability to admit it.

Trained and experienced FBI interviewers all know that there's nothing to be gained from it. Which is why they refrain from it.

Yet, Bush and Cheney hired some quack to say otherwise and paid him millions of dollars as a way to build false legitimacy for his work.

Torture is sadism and inhumanity… And ultimately self-defeating. Those who torture lose the moral high ground.

Man shot by police officers during traffic stop

HOUSTON -
A man was shot by two officers during a traffic stop after police said he was acting suspiciously.

The shooting happened in front of a convenience store on Buffalo Speedway and West Fuqua. Police pulled over a car, but HPD said a man inside the car wouldn't listen to their commands, even after he was shot multiple times by officers.

"When I was about to walk into the store, I heard gunshots, so immediately I turned around and grabbed my son and got us both on the ground," said witness Laquesha Spencer.

Police said the shots were fired after the passenger inside the silver car would not co-operate with officer's orders to sit still and put his hands up.
