"Hate hurts you." Racism is more harmful to the person who is racist, than to any person they are being racist to.

I mean, I guess if you're just counting words and thoughts. Being dragged to death behind a truck is probably worse than what racism does to the redneck.

Back when I was doing my degree, I read some really interesting stuff about slavery in the antebellum south that made a really good case for the psychological damage the system of slavery did to the slave owning class

Rainy day, this should at least reduce the number of rounds the transplanted city folk touch off today.

© Victor R. Caivano/AP Photo Using her cell phone as a flash light, a woman walks up the stairs to her sixth floor apartment in a building that has been without electricity for two weeks in Buenos Aires, Argentina, Thursday, Dec. 26, 2013. Power outages continue in Argentina's capital, where electricity usage is setting new records amid 100-degree (37.8 Celsius) temperatures in the Southern Hemisphere summer.
They're using old shit to do the story with minimal work, but how do they set usage records with the power off?

The usage records are set while causing brownouts which can progress to widespread blackout if left uncorrected.

asking for a friend.......

When you put the third bottle of bleach in the cupboard under the guest sink, should the thought process change from "....." or at best "wonder why mom keeps buying bleach" to "perhaps mom doesn't realize this (stupid place) is where I am putting all the bleach she buys and so buys more because we don't have any"

Put a prophylactic bottle of bleach under each sink in the house to keep them from reproducing.
