I've actually seen quite a few commentators reinvent indentured servitude lately.

Something about being repeatedly doomed?... I guess I can't remember the rest.

Okay, but if you take away the contexts that 1) human nature exists, and 2) oversight would rate anywhere from 'nonexistent' to 'actively hindering' as with any large government program, the only issue I see is that it is actively deincentivize hiring locally.

Fun fact: if you've ever had someone at a mall try to rub lotion on you they were here on the exact same kind of system, except with zero regulation to make sure they actually ended up at that mall with that lotion and not, you know, the other thing that happens to young women who take the unregulated path to working in the U.S.

Fake reports starting to appear telling of white moviegoers being assaulted by black people at Black Panther screenings.

Hard to find anything definitive, because well, most of the stuff coming up is fake.

This went up for all of two minutes. But in internet time, that might as well be decades.

Phew. So fucking racist it feels like it's straight out of something where the original printing had the title in heavy medieval gothic font.

Is it still a dogwhistle if it comes out the other end of the dog. That is the question.

Black state rep in Oregon gets the police called on her for looking suspicious while canvassing homes in her own district.
Rep. Janelle Bynum, a Democrat who is running for a second term this fall in the state House of Representatives, said she was knocking on doors and talking to residents for two hours along Southeast 125th Avenue in Clackamas. She was taking notes on her cellphone from the conversation she'd had with someone at the second to last of about 30 homes on her list around 5:10 p.m. when a Clackamas County deputy pulled up to her.

She looked over at the deputy in his patrol car and thought, "I don't believe this." He asked if she was selling something. She introduced herself as a state legislator and said that she was out canvassing and that she guessed someone called him.

The deputy said someone called and reported Bynum appearing to spend a long time at houses in the area and appearing to be casing the neighborhood while on her phone.

"Fuckin' white people," he muttered as he re-re-reapplied his sunscreen.

Like, okay, I get what it's like to be scared all the time. I rehearse what I have to say before I make a call or talk to someone important. I look for exits when I go someplace new. I never look drivers in the eye. I do this because everything frightens me. All that being said, you need to get a fucking grip.

Army Quietly Discharges Immigrant Recruits Once Promised A Path To Citizenship
Stock said the service members she's heard from had been told the Defense Department had not managed to put them through extensive background checks, which include CIA, FBI and National Intelligence Agency screenings and counterintelligence interviews. Therefore, by default, they do not meet the background check requirement.

"It's a vicious cycle," she said.

I think there's a different military term for that.

I still find it impossible to believe that Ben Garrison is for real. He gives off way too much of a Stan Kelly vibe. He's the greatest example of Poe's Law I've ever seen.

Turns out that's an edit of a cartoon by a Brazilian artist where all the heads and the text were replaced, as well as the artist signature.

After that was posted I'd actually noticed a series of meme/joke posts with horrible racist or reactionary cartoons with Garrisons' signature photoshopped in.

I mean, he's still a slimy racist Trump brown-noser, but yeah at this point if you see his signature it's not necessarily something he actually made.

Yeah I recognized Carlos Latuff's art style. I'm not entirely sure the word bubble was replaced, either.

Holy shit. This is some old-time Klansmen level of filthy collusion here. There's no way this could take place without dozens if not hundreds of people being involved.
