Have you missed Gladys, Lorna, Betty and Kate? We’re happy to announce the final chapter of our beloved series Bomb Girls is coming! Don’t miss Bomb Girls - Facing The Enemy, a two-hour movie airing Thursday, March 27 at 8 et/pt.
I wanna see this soooo badly! I am gonna take my nephews cuz the oldest one LOVED “Annie” when he was little.
Y’all don’t even know how excited I am for this, both personally and professionally.
Neo-Nazis were also pioneering a strategy they called “ghost skins,” which are attempts by right-wing extremists to keep quiet about their hateful views so as to blend into society and covertly advance their causes. “One white supremacist group has reportedly encouraged ghost skins to seek positions in law enforcement for the capability of alerting skinhead crews of pending investigative action against them,” says the report.
Another report released the same month revealed more about what it calls this “fascist path of stealth.” A ghost skin deliberately avoids shaving his head, wearing boots or braces, or anything that identifies his Nazi origins. “We strive to blend into society to be unrecognizable to the Jewish enemy,” one white-supremacist website is helpfully quoted as explaining. Prospective ghost skins are encouraged to join the military and receive training that can be passed on to other Nazis.
they also join the work force. live in the suburbs and generally do their best to make life hard for people that they hate. Imagine this person works in HR. Imagine they work in healthcare. Imagine they are a social worker.
Another reason why people who joke about being Nazis or WS in order to be edgy are making life harder for targeted people. If you think it’s funny to be confused for a Nazi, you are worthless scum.
so basically white supremacists encourage each other to gain positions of power where they can abuse, murder, and torture non-Aryans. why are people so surprised that legislative groups like the American Legislative Exchange Council (responsible for stand your ground laws, immigration laws like SB 1070, and the expansion of the private prison/immigration detention industrial complex) have connections to explicit white supremacists??
We need to seriously start looking into shit like this, something this revealing of those who say they’re here to serve and protect ought to be in the million + notes cause it would explain why so many white cops are so trigger happy and ready to maim people of color.
A perfect example of why white supremacists benefit from an aura of doubt. They’re intentionally playing off some invasion of the bodysnatchers type shit because they know that people are skeptical about just how widespread white supremacist ideals have become.
This is real. This isn’t just some episode of Person of Interest. This is real.
Of course it is. The military has had some problems with hate group recruiting that was noted in a study last year. Right wing politicians didn’t like the talk about “white supremacy” of course…
Well, mostly it just indicates how much political power anti-gay policy group the American Family Association really has.
Yep. They are everywhere. And that’s why I don’t trust most white folks in positions of power.
Just in time for its first graduates, the University of the People, a tuition-free four-year-old online institution built to reach underserved students around the world, announced Thursday that it had received accreditation.
Now, with accreditation from the Distance Education and Training Council, a national accrediting group, Mr. Reshef said, the university will expand significantly. He expects to have 5,000 students by 2016.
The university currently has 700 students from 142 countries enrolled in its degree programs in business administration and computer science. About 30 percent are from Africa and 25 percent from the United States, most of whom were born outside the country. While the first graduating class is tiny, only seven students, it shows the broad reach of the university: One of the graduates is from Syria and another from Jordan.
Classes at the university are 10 weeks long, and have 20 to 30 students — often from as many different countries — who have weekly homework and quizzes. The university depends largely on volunteer labor. Mr. Reshef said some 3,000 professors have offered to volunteer, although so far the university has only been able to use about 100 of them.
Its deans are volunteers from New York University and Columbia.

So I just discovered the Desmos Graphing Calculator, which is a gorgeous in-browser free online thingy that I find incredibly intuitive to use. It allows you to use your keyboard or their buttons (which are basically like a regular graphing calculator) for input, you can link it to your Google account to save graphs, and did I mention it’s just really pretty?
