The four diehard Washington Redskins fans who had signed-up to defend their team’s name on the Daily Show surely knew that they were in for some jesting, but they were not prepared for the ambush that awaited them.
During the Sept. 13 taping of the a yet-to-air episode, the four fans were confronted by Native American activist and sketch comedy group the 1491s– a surprise prearranged by the Daily Show to up the ante on the “fun panel.” But, things got tense, and fast.
According to the Washington Post, the Native Americans prodded the fans by saying, “You sound like an alcoholic, someone who’s in denial and who doesn’t want to believe what they’re doing is not right.” And quickly, the staged confrontation got a little too real for some to handle.
One of the fans, Kelli O’Dell, left the taping in tears. “I felt in danger. I didn’t consent to that,” O’Dell told the Post, “I am going to be defamed.” (She later attempted to file a police report, but authorities told her no crime had been committed)
Amanda Blackhorse, the lead plaintiff in the case that stripped the Redskins of their trademark protections, meanwhile reported that she found the experience to be dehumanizing: “They don’t see anything wrong with it. … That’s what the owner [Dan Snyder] is feeding their fans.”
She called the police. Someone called her racist - which she is - so she called the police on them.
OK, lady, you’re clearly still living in the Jim Crow era if you think you can rely on your local, armed white supremacists/cops to beat up and take away the mean PoC objecting to your treatment of them…
if you think black women wearing their hair natural is unprofessional you are racist.
if a white woman worked in a store with hair she hadnt brushed and called it her “natural” hair it would still be unprofessional.
A black woman’s natural hair is of the same quality as a white woman’s unkempt hair.
By crap do you mean seasoned food? Yeah we know white folks can’t handle flavor.

The sad reality is that many women BELIEVE the abusive, sexist partner’s messages and gaslighting and they tell themselves they must be overreacting, they must be crazy, and that it’s not worth making a big deal out of, let alone breaking up with him. But we deserve better.
The mother of a pregnant woman who was wrongly accused of theft over an instore intercom at her local supermarket said staff denied that the incident occurred when she called an hour later.
Cherisse Martin, mother of Rikki Cooper, said her daughter rang her in tears after a female staff…
BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO.
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking
Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out
"There isn’t enough at this point to warrant an arrest. #Ferguson"
