“Here is how the internship scam works. It’s not about a “skills” gap. It’s about a morality gap.

1) Make higher education worthless by redefining “skill” as a specific corporate contribution. Tell young people they have no skills.

2) With “skill” irrelevant, require experience. Make internship sole path to experience. Make internships unpaid, locking out all but rich.

3) End on the job training for entry level jobs. Educated told skills are irrelevant. Uneducated told they have no way to obtain skills.

4) As wealthy progress on professional career path, middle and lower class youth take service jobs to pay off massive educational debt.

5) Make these part-time jobs not “count” on resume. Hire on prestige, not skill or education. Punish those who need to work to survive.

6) Punish young people who never found any kind of work the hardest. Make them untouchables — unhireable.

7) Tell wealthy people they are “privileged” to be working 40 hrs/week for free. Don’t tell them what kind of “privileged” it is.

8) Make status quo commentary written by unpaid interns or people hiring unpaid interns. They will tell you it’s your fault.

9) Young people, it is not your fault. Speak out. Fight back. Bankrupt the prestige economy.”

By now I hope at least some of you have heard of Javier Payne, a 14-year-old black boy from the Bronx who was attacked by the NYPD last weekend as he was walking home from a hookah shop in his neighborhood.
Cops said he was fighting with another boy, a 13-year-old neighbor in the area. 
So what do you do when two boys are fighting? 
Well, if you’re the NYPD, and the boys in question are black, you throw one of them through a window, puncturing his lung. As he lies there with blood filling his lungs, you handcuff him and refuse to call an ambulance. When you do call an ambulance, you enter the protocol for an adult drunk, instead of a dying child. When the ambulance comes, you refuse to let the paramedics uncuff him. Even as the paramedics explain that this boy is dying, you argue that he’s faking it and that he deserves to die there on the street for fighting with another boy.  When you finally do let the paramedics uncuff him and take him to the hospital, you fail to report that you threw him through a glass window despite dozens of eye-witnesses reporting the opposite.  When you are called upon by the community to account for your actions, you decide to do an “internal investigation” - therefore being accountable to no one outside your division. You encourage the deregulation of police conduct and refuse to let outsiders investigate how you train your officers.
And what do you do, if you’re a concerned citizen who is tired of seeing this? You write Bill de Blasio and you ask him to start an outside investigation into police brutality.  Or at least that’s what I did. And if you want to cosign what I wrote him, you can do that here. And if you want to signal boost that for Javier Payne, you can do that too. You can sign my petition letter here.

this is why I hate white people

Kill it with fire

-_______- If I was white I’d complain that black people have ONE FUCKING MONTH. ONE FUCKING PRESIDENT AND ONE FUCKING CHANNEL. While everything else is mine.



if i were white i’d be able to live life in mediocrity and still complain about how hard it is having oppressed people hate me


This whole thing pisses me the fuck off. If white people had white history month it would be racism. If white people had all white frats and sororities like the blacks do at my college it would be racism. If we had a white entertainment channel it would be racism. But this is all accepted by blacks because why? Please explain that to me. Black people can walk around calling white people crackers or “white girl” and it’s not big deal but if I was to say “black guy” it would be a big issues. Stop playing the victim. If you want equal fucking rights, don’t use your race as a goddamn crutch when something doesn’t go your way.

Finally someone said it.

Does @everythingsanillusi0n even live on this planet? What’s this ‘if’ shit? White history month? All year. Why are we taught about Europeans from 800 years ago, but not, say Colombians from 300 years ago, Koreans from 100 years ago, or Indians from forever? Or rather, why is the only mention of other countries in our history books is when white men “discover” people living there, enslave and murder them, then instill their backward laws on them? That’s white history 365 a year.
And you know, it’s not like being taught white history stops in Feb. No, the only difference is that you’re ALSO being taught the thinnest of the bare minimum about people who built this country, who invented a lot of the conveniences you used today, who took to the street to make laws just. And you think you have the right to whine about? You want to call that racism? Does your bigotry really make you that stupid?
Why are there black Greek houses? Has your pea-brain ever considered the historical and CURRENT situation of white Greek organizations banning, explicitly and implicitly any person of color? Like, do you really think that black universities which were started because WHITE PEOPLE DID NOT WANT BLACK PEOPLE AT THEIR SCHOOLS were just going to wait to have a Greek House when a white person showed up? Are you new? Are you real?
What non-existent problem did you make up in your head for saying ‘black guy’? You think ‘white girl’ is racism? You think [adjective][noun] is racism?  Your poor, delicate feelings. Have you ever had a white girl call you a “Stupid nigger bitch.” for walking down the street, for asking for help, for being at the park with your kids? Have you ever had a white girl come up to assuming your’re the maid, when you’re leaving your mother-in-law’s place or that you’re the nanny when you’re playing with your kids? Have you ever had a white girl ignore you at a shop then fawn over other white girls when they come in? Guess what? THAT’S RACISM? Being called a ‘white girl’ is not racism. 
The benchmark for white bigotry is this, “If we had a white entertainment channel it would be racism.” This marks you as a racist, bigot, myopic, stupid and lazy. You know, the stereotype of the white American. Because no one with brain, no one who can actually think for themselves, no one who has actually seen TV would say that Fox New, the CW, the Hallmark Channel or any of the other 600 available channels which show 99.999999% white people is the same or less than BET. That one channel, most black people I know don’t even watch. 
So, you can be as pissed as you want to be, but you really just hung your ass out there repeating stuff that made no sense to anyone except other racist.



Lord than you for the dumb white girl & the person who set her straight.Amen.

I just love love love the carefully constructed language here. It’s all about what you can do, because you have choices and options and complete control. It’s not about what you have to do or should do. Such an important distinction for survivors.
