If someone proposes something that would ameliorate the lives of an historically disadvantaged group, you are allowed to debate the feasibility of the proposal, its likelihood of actually helping the group, whether or not it’s the most efficient way to do so, etc.

But if your first thought is, “BUT WHAT ABOUT THE GROUP THAT HAS LONG HAD THOSE ADVANTAGES?” Shut up.

This "Harlem Shake" thing

Someone starts dancing with something on their head/face with no one paying attention… and then everyone is suddenly dancing crazy.

That’s the joke, right?

And it has nothing to do with the actual “Harlem Shake” from 2000-01.

The internet is bizarre.

I have a feeling...

…that the people who own radio stations would really still prefer not to play rap, but they just tolerate it because it makes them money.

Honestly, I think that’s why the sheer aggressive arrogance of a “Niggas in Paris” is fun. And they have to find a way to play the song because it’s popular. The song doesn’t even have a chorus.

She dresses in weird clothes, smokes weed, vehemently supports gay marriage despite having a super conservative & religious father & has been with the same guy for like 3 or 4 years. Sounds like an alright woman to me.



By comparison, Taylor Swift is the town whore of pop culture, but she’s SO PRETTY!

“As Eleanor Roosevelt once said to Betty Ford, Hillary Clinton is great.”

“Granted, he is currently standing trial for counterfeiting Euros. But the trial’s going to be over soon, he’s definitely guilty.”
