Perfect time for the blackest of humor, friend.

Mississippi: Whites Ordered to Integrate - Two 40% white schools have been ordered to mix with neighboring 99% black schools, because the US Department of Justice still thinks they are too white. submitted by Dr_No to news

Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.

Diversity is a code word for white genocide.

It's getting harder and harder to deny these statements.

#IStandWithAhmed: Scientists and the public surge to support boy arrested for homemade clock submitted by FreeSpeachRocks to news

The thing does look kind of "bomb-like" if you're not versed in real bombs.

The real problem is that the school, when Ahmed said "it's a clock" didn't say "oh, our bad." Or "we're still not sure what it is, so we're going to have the police check it out." And then apologized profusely.

The fact that they aren't doing this and are being defended by "zero tolerance" policy advocates is the real travesty here.

Oklahoma police use civil forfeiture laws to seize $53,000 in charity donations to an orphanage in Thailand submitted by SarMegahhikkitha to news

This title is pretty sensationalist. Basically a guy was driving around with $53,000 in cash. Unless there's proof that the cops knew this was legitimate donation money earmarked for charity, they did the right thing. That much cash is almost always indicative of illicit activities.

Even if it seems shitty, you just cannot drive around with that much cash in your vehicle.

Edit: I never said you had to like it, but this is objectively true.

Look, most people carrying huge amounts of cash are criminals.

Similar to how most people who publicly urinate are involved in all sorts of crime.

The correlation is high which is why this is considered a red flag.

I didn't make a normative statement. I'm just telling you that you can't go around with 50k in cash if you want to keep that cash. If the cops don't take it, you still run the risk of getting robbed.

I didn't make a normative statement. I just said that this is the way that it is.

I will add that most people that carry huge amounts of unbound cash are criminals, which is why this is considered a red flag. Again, this is objectively true.
