Teenage girls, please don’t worry about being super popular in high school, or being the best actress in high school, or the best athlete. Not only do people not care about any of that the second you graduate, but when you get older, if you reference your successes in high school too much, it actually makes you look kind of pitiful, like some babbling old Tennessee Williams character with nothing else going on in her current life. What I’ve noticed is that almost no one who was a big star in high school is also big star later in life. For us overlooked kids, it’s so wonderfully fair.

Not that people were waiting with baited breath for his Pulitzer Prize winning commentary on recent events. But Nelly’s Twitter has been curiously silent all week and this is what he decided to post today as the most popular rapper from St. Louis

WHAT DID I SAY

I WAS JUST SAYING EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED. MILITARIZATION OF BLACK AND BROWN COMMUNITIES, G4S, PRISON INDUSTRIAL COMPLEX, POLICE BRUTALITY, THEY TRAIN SOME SECTIONS OF THE NYPD IN RAMALLAH EVERYTHING IS CONNECTED.

are you surprised? i’m not

My surprise is minimal. This isn’t shocking at all.

tbh the nypd goes there to train them

Honestly not even a little shocked

gotta love it when idiots use their ~progressive~ points to further antisemitism!
did you read the article? or glance at it? it was a fucking week. seven days. hardly enough time to actually indoctrinate someone with the tools of dehumanisation. like come on; that’s barely a fraction of the time officers spend in their academies. it was probably a sweeping glance at various prisons and maybe watching an interrogation or two. ~*~conspiracy~*~
like american police academies aren’t already completely shitty. the american cj system is incredibly corrupt and needs an overhaul very badly.
but clearly it can’t just be white people. All the Jews and their evil scheming have to be behind it. because that’s not racist at all.

Absolutely nobody mentioned antisemitism other than you. Don’t strain yourself with that reach, sweetie. It’s a long one.

it’s really not. it’s actually really blatant.
OP and everyone in this post is trying to claim that israel has something to do with the mike brown incident. the fault in ferguson has absolutely nothing to do with israel, and the only reason to mention israel in this is antisemitism. anyone with any sense would realise that.
the police chief spent seven days in israel. what the hell are they going to indoctrinate him with in a week? 
mike brown was shot to death because the United States’ CJ system is corrupt and our police academies resocialise recruits in a way which increases their likelihood for racial profiling and increases their aggression on the field. this is america’s fault, not israel’s, and if you’re too stupid to realise that, then go ahead and keep up with your day-to-day antisemitism as you wonder why the hell jewish people don’t feel safe in the diaspora.
antisemitism isn’t just boycotts (which are happening now in the diaspora!) and laws and rallies where people chant “kill the jews” (which are also happening right now in the diaspora!)
and if you’re dumb enough to think it is then maybe you shouldn’t talk about social justice issues at all.

These zionists are either the stupidest people to walk the face of this planet, or else they’re the most cynical.
Literally no one is saying the Jews are behind this. But you fucking better believe that it’s relevant that the police chief of town where people have been teargassed and beaten and arrested for demonstrating against brutality went to Israel for training where these policies are the norm for their police’s handling of the indigenous Palestinian people.
The accusations of antisemitism every time someone criticizes Israel and how it is exporting its racist policies all over the world to countries eager to find new ways of oppressing dissenters or oppressed populations are getting tiresome. 
So once again, shove a sock in it. Your cynicism or stupidity — I don’t care which it is — doesn’t work anymore.
