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.

"so basically stand your ground only applies to white people in florida"
~tumblr user droll-child
Okay guys, I need your help! Three years ago, this man (Michael Giles) was violently attacked outside a club in Florida during a large brawl involving almost 30-40 people. Giles was in danger of getting severely injured by one particular aggressor (unnamed), and in an effort to escape the crowd and save himself, he fired a legally registered weapon that he had at the time. Although the bullet did strike the aggressor’s leg, it did not seriously injure him. Giles then proceeded to try and find his friends to leave the area as soon as possible.
Several witnesses testified that Giles had not provoked anything and that the aggressor had started fights earlier that night. The aggressor himself admitted (in court) that he attacked Giles spontaneously. Also, Giles did not continue firing after his first bullet had gotten him a chance to escape. He left the area as soon as he could.
Despite this, Michael Giles received a mandatory 25-year sentence for “aggravated battery with a deadly weapon causing bodily harm”. There’s a plethora of evidence showing that this case should fall under the stand-your-ground law, but this appeal was denied by the judge.
Michael Giles was even a member of the United States Airforce at the time. “He had no prior criminal offenses, no history of violence, and was a outstanding father and Airman.”
The only major reason his sentence is so harsh is because of his race.
The judge himself is quoted as saying, “Frankly, I think the 25-year mandatory is overly harsh based on the facts of this case, but that’s what the law requires I do and I intend to follow the law.”
This is a link to the change.org petition started by Michael Giles’ parents. They are simply asking Governor Rick Scott and the Clemency Board to commute his sentence, and right now they need about 40,000 more signatures to reach their goal.
PLEASE, PLEASE SIGN THE PETITION AND REBLOG THIS TO SPREAD THE MESSAGE!!

evenastoppedclock321 asked: Sorry, but why is Jennifer Lawrence an asshole? I haven't really seen much of her except for fawning gifsets.
I want you to imagine I’m saying this like Jim Carrey in “Liar Liar” when he got pulled over by the cop:
She told Jesse Eisenberg she wished she had his serious medical disorder because it would make her more cool and quirky, she named a female cat “Chaz Bono” because she thought it was a boy at first, she thinks it’s hilarious to sing “Wrecking Ball” to Liam Hemsworth, she dismissed criticisms of the whitewashing of the Hunger Games film by saying they would be using hair dye, she insisted that her canonically bisexual character Mystique was heterosexual because she has children but then conceded that she may have had a “lesbian phase,” she destroyed a sacred rock formation in Hawaii by literally rubbing her butt on it, she made fun of Quvenzhané Wallis’ name, and she does all this while constantly body-shamiiiiiiiiiiing!!!!!!
Don’t forget when she called her character “dykey” and that she claims to be the only actress in Hollywood without anorexia.
and the fact that she is saying she is the only one who isn’t anorexic is incredibly ableist because she is shaming those with eating disorders without acknowledging the extreme pressure actors face when it comes to their appearance. shaming people for mental illness doesn’t deserve praise nor is it some great criticism of how Hollywood pressures women to be perfect.

The best thing is that these people are complaining that white people ruin everything and are the devil and only steal everything from PoC while 99% of them sits in a country that wouldn’t be in …
