How about lose the fake victim complex, you fucking loser, no one is telling you to kill yourself, they’re just telling you to stop being racist.
LOLOL white mangst
i just saw a woman pull food stamps out of her louis vuitton purse to pay for her groceries
but that’s none of my business
It was probably a fake.
Or an inheritance. Or a gift. I have a coach purse my auntie gave me but that means she’s the one with money, not me.
Or how about this: say she’s on food stamps and Medicaid. You have to keep a minimum amount in your bank account to keep qualifying for your health care (oh, and you’re also disabled, so that health care is important.) maybe she decided a designer purse would make a nice investment.
Maybe she bought herself a nice purse and then she lost her job and while she ‘s looking for a new one she, you know, kept carrying her purse to feel professional and look good at job interviews.
You don’t know her. You don’t know her story.
I’m sure the American public would rather have people in impoverished situations all get matching jumpsuits, a big red P embroidered on the back, and everyone would have to carry their keys and wallets and Chapstick in those thin throwaway plastic sacks you get buying your groceries in the dollar store. That way these people could be even MORE easily identified and discriminated against.
And remember, we’re living in an economy where a recently built WalMart had a higher rejection rate of applicants than Harvard University. That’s right. It’s easier to get admitted to Harvard than get a job at a brand new WalMart.
Judge not lest ye be judged.
And don’t be an asshole.
Um…food stamps, as an actual, physical bunch of stamps, don’t exist anymore. It’s now EBT, which looks just like a debit card, unless you’re close enough to read it, or unless you’re familiar enough with them to recognize them from a distance. According to Wikipedia, physical food stamps were phased out in the US in 2004. (And it’s not called the food stamp program anymore, either.)
Now, maybe you really did see this just happen, because maybe you’re not in the US, or maybe they were actually WIC vouchers, or maybe you’re a time traveller, in which case all of the previous comment applies.
Help the fight against police brutality!
You should definitely do this, but please be safe and knowledgeable about it! Here are some resources for how to safely film/photograph police brutality, as well as information on YOUR rights as you do so:
Please be aware that different states have different laws on the matter. Check into them so you can know you specific laws, and what to expect if you film the police. Also check with your state’s chapter of the ACLU; many of them have tips on this matter, and some have pocket foldouts of your rights that you can use to convince the police that no, you aren’t doing anything wrong.
