Racist Video Game Created Following Mike Brown Murder
If you were ever unsure that your voice, money and all other available resources are needed in the fight towards seeking justice for murdered teenager Mike Brown and against racism in America, this should be all the proof you need.
A website titled “Pop A N****r” has surfaced online that allows visitors to play a game where they see how many Mike Brown targets they can shoot while playing as Darren Wilson, the Ferguson police officer who gunned down an unarmed, 18-year-old Brown with six of 10 fired shots as he had his hands up in the air to represent a surrender.
Let’s continue to do all that we can to seek #JUSTICEFORMIKEBROWN and fight against racism in our country. ENOUGH IS ENOUGH

But…instead of getting mad at this and the scum who created this, get in our box and tell us we are living in a post racial society. Get in our box and tell us to stop generalizing. Get in our box and tell us that race isn’t an issue. Get in our box and tell us to ‘get over it’. Get in out box and tell us about how we always pull ‘the race card’. Please.

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.

In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.

The Eerie Beauty Of Crimea’s Abandoned Soviet-Era Salt Mine Might

Crimeans call it Sivash, or the “Rotten Sea,” in reference to the unpleasant smell that wafts from the network of shallow, salty lagoons. But for those willing to look past the stench, an otherworldly vista awaits.

Sergey Anashkevych, a photographer in the region, has captured jaw-dropping photos of the marshy area, which includes an abandoned Soviet-era salt mine. According to Caters News Agency, in some spots, the water takes on a deep crimson hue as a result of halobacteria, single-celled microorganisms that are purple in color and found in highly salty
