Tumblr User Gets Schooled When Claiming A 'Japanese Tea Party' Is Cultural "Appropriation"

An oldie of a Tumblr post but still very much relevant and important. When a mom from Utah, posted on her blog about a Japanese-themed party she threw for her daughter, Tumblr somehow got a hold of it and started dragging the mom for encouraging racism. Then commenters started stepping in, one of which who was actually Japanese, decided to set the record straight.

Friends Have Good-Humored Racist Joke War on Twitter

Just two dudes completely roasting the hell out of each other in a distinctively non-PC way. The back and forth here is what makes it. Sorta like this facebook thread that answered funny questions black people had about white people, it's good to see online conversations like this that don't spiral out of control.

Word to the wise: If you’re stuck in the middle seat between two family members, don’t have a total racist, homophobic freak out. Put on your headphones or something.

If only we could have offered that massage to this dude in the hat who went on a total bigotted tear on a United Airlines flight out of Auckland, NZ yesterday.

According to SFist, “An angry man allegedly launched into a racist and homophobic rant after being seated between two other passengers of Indian or Pakistani descent on a San Francisco-bound flight out of Sydney on New Year's Day, leading to a confrontation with a flight attendant and the plane being diverted to Auckland and grounded there overnight.”

Can you imagine that? Being seated between two people who are talking. Ugh. What a nightmare! Well, that’s what this guy thought too. Apparently, his anger escalated from a rant about “Indians to Asians to Muslims to non-whites in general.” Imagine if he had just asked one his row mates to switch seats? After being asked to stop by flight attendant, whom he also had some words for, the pilot re-routed back to Auckland. He was then taken by police, where one might assume he got the middle seat in a cop car.

The whole experience was caught was caught by Neil Kay, who made some new friends because of the experience.  

Call me crazy, but it seems like they're having a better time than the dude who had the racist freak out.

Nothing quite like the holidays to get people riled up right? After her ridiculous childish tantrum, she screams, "I VOTED FOR TRUMP!!!!”

For about $20 at Albuquerque Italian restaurant, Paisano's, you can buy yourself some bad judgment.


The owner, Rick Camuglia, insists he wasn't trivializing the Black Lives Matter movement, but just trying to push his "tuna dish with black olive tapenade."






Understandably, Twitter erupted trying to explain where he went wrong:

...but he JUST DOESN'T SEEM TO GET IT.

Let's be clear, he tried to explain it, but that doesn't make it not a really, really dumb idea. This YouTube star is getting a lot of flack for his "social experiment" video that involved, according to him, comparing "radical Islamic terrorism" and "radical Christian terrorism". What does that mean, you ask? Apparently it involves having your friend dress up in a real crappy costume and half-heartedly yelling mispronounced Arabic phrases at people before running away. 

Just... just watch it for yourself:



Obviously, most people HATED it. People in the comments of the original video and on Twitter called him out for his terrible judgment.

The volunteer in this video said some shocking things while screaming and pushing a family out of the hospital waiting room.  Isaiah Baskins, the man behind the camera, posted the video on Youtube and says that she made racist comments just before he started recording. 

You can also see an interview from the family who was behind the camera and the apology issued from the hospital in this video :

twitter racism karma London Man Arrested for Hateful Tweets After 'Confronting' a Muslim Woman About Brussels

A London man ended up in big trouble after posting several awful Tweets about Muslims following the Brussels Attacks. His initial Tweet, where he describes "confronting" a Muslim woman was met with an appropriate amount of derision from other users who turned his phrase into a meme. 


via @s8mb, @robmanuel@Pandamoanimum

He clarified the incident with "The Telegraph" with an alternate version of events:

What everyone’s got wrong about this is I didn’t confront the woman,” he said. “I just said: ‘Excuse me, can I ask what you thought about the incident in Brussels?'”

“She was white, and British, wearing a hijab – and she told me it was nothing to do with her.

“I said ‘thank you for explaining that’ – and her little boy said goodbye to me as we went out separate ways.”

Despite this alternate version of events, his Twitter stream has devolved into alternately spouting hateful things aimed at Muslims and retweeting stories about his "confrontation" Tweet.

But the story doesn't end there, he was arrested later for his hateful posts. The Telegraph gives details from a police spokesperson on the situation:

"A 46-year-old man was this evening arrested at his home in Croydon on suspicion of inciting racial hatred on social media. He has been taken to a south London police station and enquiries continue."

Floyd Mayweather seems adamant, hopelessly lenient towards stirring up the pot, and pissing off the competition, but outside the octagon. Mayweather recently implied Conor McGregor's popularity was more a result of his skin color than anything else:

"And what's so crazy, I don't really know the McGregor guy; never seen him fight. … They say he talk a lot of trash and people praise him for it, but when I did it, they say I'm cocky and arrogant. So biased! Like I said before, all I'm saying is this, I ain't racist at all, but I'm telling you racism still exists."

Not chill Mayweather, not chill at all.

McGregor shut this little spell down by releasing a statement that was all at once, articulate, methodical, and appropriate. Here's an excerpt off McGregor's lengthy, well-rounded Instagram response:

Floyd Mayweather, don't ever bring race into my success again. I am an Irishman. My people have been oppressed our entire existence. And still very much are. I understand the feeling of prejudice. It is a feeling that is deep in my blood.

In my family's long history of warfare there was a time where just having the name 'McGregor' was punishable by death. Do not ever put me in a bracket like this again. If you want we can organise a fight no problem. I will give you a fair 80/20 split purse in my favour seen as your last fight bombed at every area of revenue.

At 27 years of age I now hold the key to this game. The game answers to me now.

Suffice to say, we'd pay a whole lotta' dough to see these two exchange blows sometime soon.

Who do you think would take home the W?

Melissa Harris Perry has a lot of feelings about Star Wars, primarily that it's racist, because Darth Vader was voiced by a black guy but played by a white guy.

The part where he was totally a black guy whose name was basically James Earl Jones...but while he was black he was terrible and bad and awful and used to cut off white men's hands, and didn't, you know, actually claim his son, but as soon as he claims his son and goes over to the good he takes off his mask and he's white.


Maybe she doesn't acknowledge the prequels as being real, and who can blame her for that, but Anakin/Vader is a white guy in those and he kills so many younglings. He also first "claims his son" while he's still "a black guy" (a whole movie before he takes off his mask) and, well, if you've ever heard Darth Vader's on-set voice, you'd understand why they dubbed over it with James Earl Jones:

A Brasilian campaign called "Virtual Racism, Real Consequences" has placed Billboards in the home towns of racist internet denizens featuring their hurtful posts alongside a blurred out image and username of the offender. The project used Facebook's geo-tagging function to locate the commenters.  

The organizers of the project don't want to identify anyone or give trolls more attention which is why the identifying information is blurred out. They hope that people who made these comments will come across their own words in a very public venue and realize the impact of their comments has more reach than the semi-anonymty of the internet. 

They have also created a video to better explain their efforts :
