TCR | 2007.03.12 | It reads: “Dear Stephen, As editor-in-chief of Marvel, I am burdened with the handling of our character’s estates and the sad event that a hero should perish before his time. Captain America’s will was read last Friday, and while heavy hearted, I am proud to announce the star spangled Avenger has bequeathed his most valuable possession, his indestructible shield, to the only man he believed had the red, white, and blue balls to carry the mantle. Stephen Colbert. Welcome to the Marvel Universe. Sincerely, Joe Quesada.
A woman called 911 for an ambulance because she was worried that her 43-year-old fiance Jack Lamar Roberson was having complications with his diabetes. Instead, a police car showed up, and the officers walked inside and shot him four times. Roberson was unarmed and had his hands in the air when he was shot. His whole family - including his 8-year-old daughter - saw it happen.
Last year, the same county police force was responsible for the shooting of a 26-year-old unarmed black man. All officers are on administrative leave pending an investigation.
YouTubers, even the ones who claim to be activists don’t give a fuck about black people. Their target audience are young white people. Even YouTube itself don’t care about black folks as they promote mostly white YouTubers and artists and a few Asians.
When shit happens to black folks, they choose to ignore it because it basically won’t help their subscriber count or view count. Just like every other aspect of society, it ain’t profitable or beneficial to them to point out black problems because they either don’t care about black folks, straight up racist, or know their audience is low key racist.
Shit, this “hood” pranks bullshit is the tip of the ice berg. Lke did you hear from some of these YouTubers when this whole Mike Brown thing went down? Or Eric Garner? Or any of the dudes that got killed just for holding toy weapons? A lot of white folks with a following were silent when that shit popped off.
But they react quick as fuck when some shit happen to some white women. Shit, why you think you got all them movies with dudes like Liam Neeson saving white women, lol?
Black folks aren’t marketable. Black folks aren’t ever really portrayed as victims when there are situations where they clearly are. But white women are…………….
I’m gonna do a Cedric Alexander video next but I need to figure out a song to use.
Jenna Marbles been in blackface, Shane Dawson been in black face, not a single “YouTuber” spoke out about the racist “hood” pranks all while condemning Sam Pepper’s disgusting prank against (white) women.
I been told y’all that “YouTubers” are trash. I told y’all that they don’t give a fuck about black people.
