Why should kids be taught to hate the police?
Because there are 2.3 million people in jail in the US right now and every single one was put there by a fucking cop.
Some people talk about good cops and bad cops, but a good cop, a cop doing their job properly, still puts nonviolent drug users in jail for many years, totally ruining their lives as they lose their jobs, houses, cars, romantic partners, access to college, and become substantially less employable upon release.
A cop doing their job properly still gives homeless people tickets for vagrancy which they obviously can’t pay and when a warrant is issued as a result an officer doing their job properly arrests those homeless people.
An officer doing their job properly pepper-sprays and arrests environmental protesters so that logging companies can clear-cut old growth forests.
An officer doing their job properly is evicting a family from their home as you read this because the parents’ jobs were shipped overseas so that the bosses could make eight figures a year instead of seven. Those people will become homeless, vagrancy tickets will be written, warrants will be issued… And then there’s the ‘bad ones’.
"And since we all came from a woman
Got our name from a woman and our game from a woman
I wonder why we take from our women
Why we rape our women, do we hate our women?
I think it’s time to kill for our women
Time to heal our women, be real to our women
And if we don’t we’ll have a race of babies
That will hate the ladies, that make the babies
And since a man can’t make one
He has no right to tell a woman when and where to create one
So will the real men get up
I know you’re fed up ladies, but keep your head up”

sounds like something a vampire would say
egalitarianism is the deliberate, and oftentimes benign, silencing of an oppressed group in order to maintain the social hegemony
egalitarianism is being cognizant of the fact that there are social inequities and choosing to aid both sides with the same vigor
egalitarianism is an ideology that perpetuates oppression by doing nothing to reduce the chasm that lies between two social groups

Why are you wasting time on Tumblr when you could be wasting time on this piano-playing hair Internet thing we just invented?
Touche, Old Spice. You are one of the few companies that gets the Internet.
