    [–] Dr. Lonnie Johnson here....I'm back celebrating Black History Month with you! Ask Me Anything! lll_lll_lll 2 points ago in IAmA

    There were no black people indigenous to the islands, they all came over as slaves same as north and South American blacks during the same era. Most people don’t seem to know this for some reason.

    Also, the north benefited greatly from slavery as well. Prior to the attack on fort Sumter, the mayor of NYC actually attempted to secede from the union. NYC was making huge profits exporting slave grown cotton. Just because the north wasn’t cracking the whips doesn’t mean they didn’t profit from and support slavery for a long time.

    [–] Reddit Users Rally Against Chinese Censorship After the Site Receives a $150 Million Reported Investment lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in technology

    Nah, that is the standard Reddit opinion about that issue. Try saying that Israel has a right to defend itself against Palestinian terrorism and then see where you end up.

    [–] [DISCUSSION] Kanye West - The College Dropout (15 Years Later) lll_lll_lll 9 points ago in hiphopheads

    All day is pretty lyrically impressive, to the point it sounds written by someone else to me. New god flow verse is good too.

    To me part of the charm of Kanye flow is that it’s a little unrefined and kinda dumb, off key, not very fast, etc but still with so much confidence behind it. (Like making up the word “apologin” just to make it fit, e.g.)

    [–] Took a couple months to finish this pencil drawing, now I need to figure out how to talk to people again. lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in pics

    As a photo retoucher in the fashion industry, I spend a great deal of time removing or toning down these kinds of veiny details in hands and feet.

    The fact that you keep them in sells it to me as real. It would just look too pretty without them. Impressive work.

    Actually, one of the world’s greatest surfers (Gabriel Medina, 2 time world champ so far) surfs goofy and skates regular. Which I just don’t understand.

    You are simply wrong. Hunger and starving are not the same thing. There is poverty and hunger all over America, but to literally stave to death, you need to go over a month without eating before your body uses your vital organs for nutrients. This doesn’t happen in America except in rare, isolated incidents where someone was physically locked away somewhere or lost in the wilderness. I invite you to provide any sources to the contrary.

    It would have a single call button on the top and bottom floors, but otherwise would have an up and down button as usual. Why would number of elevators affect this?

    There aren’t children starving in America though...

    If she’s already pressed the down button, the doors will still open again on the way down.

    The doors actually wouldn’t even open on the way up unless someone else were getting off or going up.

    They can also be sealed pretty easily with concrete once discovered.

    Yes, laws are propaganda. Such a brave comment.

    [–] Portrait of an American refugee lll_lll_lll -4 points ago in wholesomebpt

    Is it racist to want to prioritize helping poor black Americans over poor refugees from other countries? We can’t even keep our own citizens out of poverty.

    [–] Portrait of an American refugee lll_lll_lll -2 points ago in wholesomebpt

    Because there is significant cost involved in sending government officials to foreign countries to vet and process potential refugees.

    Around 14% of Americans live in poverty. I believe we have a duty to take care of our own citizens first before trying to solve the world’s problems.

    Yes! Immigrants coming here legally through proper channels.

    [–] Just safe to assume lll_lll_lll 4 points ago in iamverysmart

    I think we have different sorts of insults in mind. It’s supposed to be the kind of thing that makes someone laugh because it’s so ridiculous, there would not be any confusion about whether you really mean it or not. Not the same thing as close friends giving each other shit.

    [–] Just safe to assume lll_lll_lll 16 points ago in iamverysmart

    It’s funny because negging has morphed into this definition over time but was originally quite different. The original intention was to playfully insult girls in an obviously joking manner to break the ice. This was the tactic devised by whoever invented the term.

    This made up definition of seriously trying to insult someone to appear superior caught on somehow and got repeated so much that no one knows the real origin is different.

    No, the horizon is crooked too. This is just rotated image.

    [–] A different point of view. lll_lll_lll 1 points ago in WhitePeopleTwitter

    A couple of the major ones are still active. I don’t want to say which, but I just checked.

    Not to say it’s legal though, there is some risk involved

    [–] A different point of view. lll_lll_lll 0 points ago in WhitePeopleTwitter

    Times have changed. Technology has basically made pimps and agencies redundant. Girls can work independently in relative safety using sites that use third party verification, referrals, and reviews. It’s basically like UBER. 10 years ago, people would scoff at the idea of getting in strangers’ personal cars for ride sharing, but because of the enforcement of the star rating, and the fact that the site has everyone’s real ID, it works perfectly.

    So if you only see clients who have referrals from other girls, third party ID verification, and a good rating, then your chance of sketchiness is pretty low. You both get to review each other on the site, so everyone is on their best behavior.

    Once you take the need for pimps out of the equation, and only see clients who are not sketchy, it’s not nearly as bad of a job.

    [–] Well... lll_lll_lll 33 points ago in WhitePeopleTwitter

    No one, an old Native American guy with a drum walked into a crowd of high schoolers and one kid stood there with a grin which is a hate crime.
