THIS is White Privilege.
This is the price white people who appropriate blackness pay for committing numerous crimes. They get to be successful actors once they drop this “phase”.
Meanwhile a black person would get the most ridiculous of prison sentences for even one of these.
HE BLINDED A MAN. HE HAS A HATE CRIME UNDER HIS BELT. 





I gotta research this. :’(

Oh yeah, found out the other day that Laura Bush killed someone when she was 17.

In a story from the archive, the chef Anthony Bourdain spills some trade secrets:

“By means of a hidden camera in a restaurant, the reporter was horrified to see returned bread being sent right back out to the floor. This, to me, wasn’t news: the reuse of bread has been an open secret—and a fairly standard practice—in the industry for years. It makes more sense to worry about what happens to the leftover table butter—many restaurants recycle it for hollandaise.”

New York Times journalist James Risen could face prison for refusing to reveal his source for a story about a botched CIA operation intended to sabotage Iran’s nuclear weapons program.
Today he joins Fresh Air to talk about journalism, getting subpoenaed, and his new book Pay Any Price.

“You cannot conduct aggressive investigative reporting without confidential sources. Whistleblowers have to reveal things that can threaten their career or their livelihood because everything is secret and classified [and] in order to talk about almost anything important in national security or the war on terror, people have to take risks in order to tell the truth about what’s going on.
We as reporters have to be willing to provide confidentiality in order to receive that information and report on that information and tell the American people what’s really happening. If we don’t have the ability to maintain confidential sources and protect our sources, then people won’t be willing to talk to us and we won’t be able to find out what the government is doing.”
