Should it ever come to it… AMEN.

Within a year, maybe in just a few months, a young soldier with a horrific injury from a bomb blast in Afghanistan will have an operation that has never been performed in the United States: a penis transplant.

The organ will come from a deceased donor, and the surgeons, from Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine in Baltimore, say they expect it to start working in a matter of months, developing urinary function, sensation and, eventually, the ability to have sex.

Unless there's a bunch of stuff from that party that's not shown, I don't think they did anything racist. They're not denigrating typical imagery from other cultures. They're just interpreting it. If those Arab-looking guys had fake bombs strapped to there chests then that would be inappropriate. Still not racist though. Just propagating an intentionally negative image of another culture.

The person who copied these from a private area of Facebook and broadcast them to the world claimed they were indisputably racist. I have a problem with both of the last two words. Claiming your position cannot be disputed is conversational bullying. And the costumes aren't racist in that they don't express an opinion that a specific racial group is inferior to another. But they may be culturally insensitive. But it's not a crime to be insensitive. Most insensitivity isn't out of malice, it's out of ignorance And the best response to ignorance isn't high-volume aggressive accusations of racism, it's information and constructive criticism.

I don't think costumes are necessarily racist, but context is everything. If enough people are offended, then what can you do.

Mickey Rooney made up to look squinty-eyed and acting like a chinaman stereotype is grossly racist. And the Cleveland Indians logo looks like something out of a minstrel show.

I think I am more bothered by insensitive depictions of cultures that lack political power - aboriginals in particular. I don't give a shit if Saudis are mocked. Fuck them.

Facebook has banned telesur english. So much for freedom of the press in the West.

Telesur - to those who don't know - is a joint effort by the evil axis of Cuba, Venezuela, Nicaragua and a couple of other Latin American baddies. And it's not bad.

Vice with a fairly shitty piece about the Vory but surprised Chelsea Soros let this be published since it's going against the narrative:

What do you think the Mueller investigations into President Trump's alleged ties to Russia will uncover in regards to the Vory, if anything? Trump has a history of Italian mob ties in the US and some of his lackeys like consigliere Michael Cohen have even claimed to be tight with Russian mobsters.

From Donald Trump down, through Michael Cohen, for me what I see unfolding in the States is not so much a story about everyday Russian organized crime so much as a story of unusual American greed, of a lack of morals and a depressing belief that any business is good business, regardless with whom it is conducted. I have seen no serious evidence of any explicit link between Trump and Russian mobsters. Rather, what I have seen is evidence of the extent to which the Trump Organization seems to have been willing to engage with dubious investors and buyers—some Russian, many not—whom more reputable corporations would not have touched. In the process, it is likely it laundered money from all kinds of questionable sources, but that is not the same as a direct link to gangsters. Above all, this is a story about corruption, framed in both legal and moral terms, and about a horrifying absence of ethics and transparency.


https://www.vice.com/en_us/article/gykv ... etwitterus

I think this is the right take or the closest to the truth. I'd also like the politicians to grow a pair and point out the obvious collusion with Israel and Saudi Arabia. Too much campaign cash at stake though which just tells you the whole thing is a joke. The Russian Villain gimmick is getting old even though they are a pain in the ass.
