for either sexist or anti-Semitic language. Placing bets!
State Rep. Michele Fiore (R-Nevada) and the Bundy Ranch Facebook page shared similar accounts of Finicums fatal shooting, each claiming the rancher had been shot with his hands up while his friends were arrested.
But thats not exactly what happened, according to two eyewitnesses who each posted their first-hand accounts in Facebook videos.
Damn those pesky fact thingies
It isn't going to stop. We have a new Ruby Ridge hero for RW assholes.
After Arles Cepeda, who lives in Castle Hill Houses, called the NYC 311 line too many times to report drug dealers, she was arrested and locked behind bars. Now she says she will file a federal lawsuit against the NYPD.
They threatened her with being put in an institution as well as arresting her.
When is enough enough with these fucking pigs?
This Friday, Trumps official Twitter feed retweeted this Tweet that takes a jab at GOP rival Jeb Bush. It shows a photoshopped image of Bush in front of the Trump Towers, holding up a Vote for Trump sign.
He is a fucking toad
Point and match. Fritz Kuhn has been resurrected.
I have people come up to me and say why are you killing us Americans? Im an American, too, how are you going to say that, Isis says. It doesnt take very much sleuthing to know that the young girl is entirely innocent in the matter. As Shakespeare said, A rose by any other name would smell as sweet, meaning names are just personal labels that dont define us or our character. Why should one little girl have to answer for the actions of a cruel organization, when its all just a bizarre coincidence?
I bet you the school does nothing to stop it.
There is a video the girl made. I don't tear up easily. But, I feel for her. I got it fore being the only Jew in a hick town.
There has been a big deal made about the lack of minority stars or films being pushed for Academy Awards. While my memory may be rusty, I can only really think of four minorities that have one Oscars:
Denzel Washington (Twice)
Haing S. Ngor for The Killing Fields
Again, I may be wrong, but these are the only ones I can think of off the top of my head. However, I may be mistaken.
Usually, I don't care what happens in Hollywood even though I work in it. It is of monumental uninterest to me the lives of the people in The Biz. I keep to myself and work at my Film Company's Hong Kong office. However, I will comment on what happened with this year's nominations.
I stand 100% behind Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith. All minorities, not just African Americans, should boycott the Oscars. My Company's founder and CEO is African American. Even if that weren't the case, I still stand behind Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith.
Hollywood is a destructive force in the struggle for racial justice. As one studio exec told me about my screenplay on Gen. Joseph Stillwell: "While it's a great piece, it won't do well in the US. Americans want to see a movie where they kick Japanese ass during the day and fuck Chinese ass at night." I told him I wouldn't do that because it just wasn't true. He told I didn't know what I was talking about and that Chinese women throw themselves at Americans. I began speaking in Chinese and after, told him, in English, that I would never write a stereotypical piece like that. I own a house in China and am married to a Chinese national and you insulted her and me by thinking and saying what you said. That was three years ago in LA.
It's the same with African Americans. Unless you make a movie where you twerk, sell drugs, are in a gang or live up to the stereotypes of Africa and African Americans, you're DOA. Indie films are exceptions: "Fruitvale Station" and "Beasts of No Nations" are fine examples of being honest. "Straight Outta Compton" is a good example of being partially honest. But so many movies for and by African Americans (usually produced by old, rich white men) are just swill and stereotype: Portraying black people as hustlers (Rush Hour), boobs (Daddy Day Care), criminals (Four Brothers) or "the magic negro" as Spike Lee calls it ("Bagger Vance" and "Green Mile" are two great examples. Let's not go into Tyler Perry's movies on their portrayal of black people because I want to keep my blood pressure down.
Only a few movies have been honest about the African American experience. "Great White Hope," "Raisin in the Sun," "Fences," "Master Harold. . .and the Boys," and "Glory" are a few of the limited examples I will use.
Hollywood has a black person problem. They don't know how to treat African Americans. They don't know how to appeal to African Americans. They don't know African Americans. Those that sign the checks are rich white men so insulated from real life that they wouldn't know it if it crawl up their asses and died.
I stand with Spike Lee and Jada Pinkett Smith. I believe Black Lives Matter. As a result, being in it now, I will say it: Hollywood has a racism problem. And it will not change overnight. Boycott the Oscars this year. Don't give it viewership. And if any of the winners have a social conscience, be like George C. Scott and Marlon Brando: Refuse your Oscar until minority actors, actresses, director and movies get the recognition they deserve if they are award worthy.
