Google adds “undo send” feature to GMail. Amen

Have you every typed up something, sent it, then IMMEDIATELY regret it?

Well….GOOGLE TO THE RESCUE!

This feautre has been going through tests since 2009…that’s SIX. YEARS.

But here we are!

As its name suggests, Undo Send gives you a set period of time after dispatching an email to change your mind — so once you’ve clicked “Send” you’ll see an option to reverse it on your screen for between 5 and 30 seconds, depending on what you’ve indicated in the settings.

Moving forward, you’ll see Undo Send in the main “General” tab of your settings. If you already had the option switched on in Labs, then it will still be switched on by default. If you didn’t, you’ll need to tick the little box next to “Enable Undo Send.”

You’ve got 30 seconds to decide if you REALLYYYYYYY wanna cuss out your entire department/family.

Whew.

Thank you, Google.

Diddy arrested for attacking son’s UCLA football coach…with a kettlebell

This is bad.

Very bad.

It’s gone from what was seemingly an assault, to a terrorist threat situation (which is interesting since they refuse to call Dylann Roof…eh..I digress).

His son, Justin, plays football at UCLA as a defensive back and apparently Diddy wasn’t okay with something that was done and/or said. Apparently the coach was screaming at Justin (isn’t this normal?) and Diddy confronted him (why was he at the practice?).

Things just went from bad to worse for Diddy … like “terrorist” worse … ’cause the rap mogul is now being accused of making TERRORIST THREATS during the fight at UCLA.

We broke the story … Diddy was arrested Monday after allegedly attacking UCLA football strength and conditioning coach Sal Alosi at the university athletic complex.

Diddy was initially held on suspicion of assault with a deadly weapon because witnesses say he swung a kettlebell at Alosi — but later that night, officials tacked on more charges:

— 3 counts of assault w/ deadly weapon
— 1 count of making terrorist threats
— 1 count of battery

It appears Diddy was allegedly screaming threats at Alosi — and the 5 or 6 people who rushed in to break up the fight.

Diddy was eventually released on bail after posting $50k bond — but this case is far from over.

{TMZ}

This is not a good look for Diddy because there’s no possible way a member of his entourage can take the charge for him.

Dylann Storm Roof’s Manifesto

I posted the link to this, however, many people said that it didn’t work. So here it is…

~~~

I was not raised in a racist home or environment. Living in the South, almost every White person has a small amount of racial awareness, simply beause of the numbers of negroes in this part of the country. But it is a superficial awareness. Growing up, in school, the White and black kids would make racial jokes toward each other, but all they were were jokes. Me and White friends would sometimes would watch things that would make us think that “blacks were the real racists” and other elementary thoughts like this, but there was no real understanding behind it.

The event that truly awakened me was the Trayvon Martin case. I kept hearing and seeing his name, and eventually I decided to look him up. I read the Wikipedia article and right away I was unable to understand what the big deal was. It was obvious that Zimmerman was in the right. But more importantly this prompted me to type in the words “black on White crime” into Google, and I have never been the same since that day. The first website I came to was the Council of Conservative Citizens. There were pages upon pages of these brutal black on White murders. I was in disbelief. At this moment I realized that something was very wrong. How could the news be blowing up the Trayvon Martin case while hundreds of these black on White murders got ignored?

From this point I researched deeper and found out what was happening in Europe. I saw that the same things were happening in England and France, and in all the other Western European countries. Again I found myself in disbelief. As an American we are taught to accept living in the melting pot, and black and other minorities have just as much right to be here as we do, since we are all immigrants. But Europe is the homeland of White people, and in many ways the situation is even worse there. From here I found out about the Jewish problem and other issues facing our race, and I can say today that I am completely racially aware.

Blacks

I think it is is fitting to start off with the group I have the most real life experience with, and the group that is the biggest problem for Americans.

Niggers are stupid and violent. At the same time they have the capacity to be very slick. Black people view everything through a racial lense. Thats what racial awareness is, its viewing everything that happens through a racial lense. They are always thinking about the fact that they are black. This is part of the reason they get offended so easily, and think that some thing are intended to be racist towards them, even when a White person wouldnt be thinking about race. The other reason is the Jewish agitation of the black race.

Black people are racially aware almost from birth, but White people on average dont think about race in their daily lives. And this is our problem. We need to and have to.

Say you were to witness a dog being beat by a man. You are almost surely going to feel very sorry for that dog. But then say you were to witness a dog biting a man. You will most likely not feel the same pity you felt for the dog for the man. Why? Because dogs are lower than men.

This same analogy applies to black and White relations. Even today, blacks are subconsciously viewed by White people are lower beings. They are held to a lower standard in general. This is why they are able to get away with things like obnoxious behavior in public. Because it is expected of them.

Modern history classes instill a subconscious White superiority complex in Whites and an inferiority complex in blacks. This White superiority complex that comes from learning of how we dominated other peoples is also part of the problem I have just mentioned. But of course I dont deny that we are in fact superior.

I wish with a passion that niggers were treated terribly throughout history by Whites, that every White person had an ancestor who owned slaves, that segregation was an evil an oppressive institution, and so on. Because if it was all it true, it would make it so much easier for me to accept our current situation. But it isnt true. None of it is. We are told to accept what is happening to us because of ancestors wrong doing, but it is all based on historical lies, exaggerations and myths. I have tried endlessly to think of reasons we deserve this, and I have only came back more irritated because there are no reasons.

Only a fourth to a third of people in the South owned even one slave. Yet every White person is treated as if they had a slave owning ancestor. This applies to in the states where slavery never existed, as well as people whose families immigrated after slavery was abolished. I have read hundreds of slaves narratives from my state. And almost all of them were positive. One sticks out in my mind where an old ex-slave recounted how the day his mistress died was one of the saddest days of his life. And in many of these narratives the slaves told of how their masters didnt even allowing whipping on his plantation.

Segregation was not a bad thing. It was a defensive measure. Segregation did not exist to hold back negroes. It existed to protect us from them. And I mean that in multiple ways. Not only did it protect us from having to interact with them, and from being physically harmed by them, but it protected us from being brought down to their level. Integration has done nothing but bring Whites down to level of brute animals. The best example of this is obviously our school system.

Now White parents are forced to move to the suburbs to send their children to “good schools”. But what constitutes a “good school”? The fact is that how good a school is considered directly corresponds to how White it is. I hate with a passion the whole idea of the suburbs. To me it represents nothing but scared White people running. Running because they are too weak, scared, and brainwashed to fight. Why should we have to flee the cities we created for the security of the suburbs? Why are the suburbs secure in the first place? Because they are White. The pathetic part is that these White people dont even admit to themselves why they are moving. They tell themselves it is for better schools or simply to live in a nicer neighborhood. But it is honestly just a way to escape niggers and other minorities.

But what about the White people that are left behind? What about the White children who, because of school zoning laws, are forced to go to a school that is 90 percent black? Do we really think that that White kid will be able to go one day without being picked on for being White, or called a “white boy”? And who is fighting for him? Who is fighting for these White people forced by economic circumstances to live among negroes? No one, but someone has to.

Here I would also like to touch on the idea of a Norhtwest Front. I think this idea is beyond stupid. Why should I for example, give up the beauty and history of my state to go to the Norhthwest? To me the whole idea just parralells the concept of White people running to the suburbs. The whole idea is pathetic and just another way to run from the problem without facing it.

Some people feel as though the South is beyond saving, that we have too many blacks here. To this I say look at history. The South had a higher ratio of blacks when we were holding them as slaves. Look at South Africa, and how such a small minority held the black in apartheid for years and years. Speaking of South Africa, if anyone thinks that think will eventually just change for the better, consider how in South Africa they have affirmative action for the black population that makes up 80 percent of the population.

It is far from being too late for America or Europe. I believe that even if we made up only 30 percent of the population we could take it back completely. But by no means should we wait any longer to take drastic action.

Anyone who thinks that White and black people look as different as we do on the outside, but are somehow magically the same on the inside, is delusional. How could our faces, skin, hair, and body structure all be different, but our brains be exactly the same? This is the nonsense we are led to believe.

Negroes have lower Iqs, lower impulse control, and higher testosterone levels in generals. These three things alone are a recipe for violent behavior. If a scientist publishes a paper on the differences between the races in Western Europe or Americans, he can expect to lose his job. There are personality traits within human families, and within different breeds of cats or dogs, so why not within the races?

A horse and a donkey can breed and make a mule, but they are still two completely different animals. Just because we can breed with the other races doesnt make us the same.

In a modern history class it is always emphasized that, when talking about “bad” things Whites have done in history, they were White. But when we lern about the numerous, almost countless wonderful things Whites have done, it is never pointed out that these people were White. Yet when we learn about anything important done by a black person in history, it is always pointed out repeatedly that they were black. For example when we learn about how George Washington carver was the first nigger smart enough to open a peanut.

On another subject I want to say this. Many White people feel as though they dont have a unique culture. The reason for this is that White culture is world culture. I dont mean that our culture is made up of other cultures, I mean that our culture has been adopted by everyone in the world. This makes us feel as though our culture isnt special or unique. Say for example that every business man in the world wore a kimono, that every skyscraper was in the shape of a pagoda, that every door was a sliding one, and that everyone ate every meal with chopsticks. This would probably make a Japanese man feel as though he had no unique traditional culture.

I have noticed a great disdain for race mixing White women within the White nationalists community, bordering on insanity it. These women are victims, and they can be saved. Stop.

Jews

Unlike many White naitonalists, I am of the opinion that the majority of American and European jews are White. In my opinion the issues with jews is not their blood, but their identity. I think that if we could somehow destroy the jewish identity, then they wouldnt cause much of a problem. The problem is that Jews look White, and in many cases are White, yet they see themselves as minorities. Just like niggers, most jews are always thinking about the fact that they are jewish. The other issue is that they network. If we could somehow turn every jew blue for 24 hours, I think there would be a mass awakening, because people would be able to see plainly what is going on.

I dont pretend to understand why jews do what they do. They are enigma.

Hispanics

Hispanics are obviously a huge problem for Americans. But there are good hispanics and bad hispanics. I remember while watching hispanic television stations, the shows and even the commercials were more White than our own. They have respect for White beauty, and a good portion of hispanics are White. It is a well known fact that White hispanics make up the elite of most hispanics countries. There is good White blood worht saving in Uruguay, Argentina, Chile and even Brasil.

But they are still our enemies.

East Asians

I have great respent for the East Asian races. Even if we were to go extinct they could carry something on. They are by nature very racist and could be great allies of the White race. I am not opposed at all to allies with the Northeast Asian races.

Patriotism

I hate the sight of the American flag. Modern American patriotism is an absolute joke. People pretending like they have something to be proud while White people are being murdered daily in the streets. Many veterans believe we owe them something for “protecting our way of life” or “protecting our freedom”. But im not sure what way of life they are talking about. How about we protect the White race and stop fighting for the jews. I will say this though, I myself would have rather lived in 1940’s American than Nazi Germany, and no this is not ignorance speaking, it is just my opinion. So I dont blame the veterans of any wars up until after Vietnam, because at least they had an American to be proud of and fight for.

An Explanation

To take a saying from a film, “I see all this stuff going on, and I dont see anyone doing anything about it. And it pisses me off.”. To take a saying from my favorite film, “Even if my life is worth less than a speck of dirt, I want to use it for the good of society.”.

I have no choice. I am not in the position to, alone, go into the ghetto and fight. I chose Charleston because it is most historic city in my state, and at one time had the highest ratio of blacks to Whites in the country. We have no skinheads, no real KKK, no one doing anything but talking on the internet. Well someone has to have the bravery to take it to the real world, and I guess that has to be me.

Unfortunately at the time of writing I am in a great hurry and some of my best thoughts, actually many of them have been to be left out and lost forever. But I believe enough great White minds are out there already.

Please forgive any typos, I didnt have time to check it.

I mean, this guy refuses to believe facts, and those facts he DID choose to believe, he twisted them up to fit his own agenda.

 

He calls himself brave? Well, why did you run? And you said you aren’t in the position to go to the ghetto and fight? Well, why not with your brave self? Why not take it where you would be met with the same force, instead of to people who were PRAYING?

Oh.

Cause that’s what cowards do.

I don’t have the words.

Other than to say he’s not the only person around here with this mentality.

And that is scary.

UPDATE:

 

The Charleston attack has brought about a level of insensitivity and stupidity that is unreal.

And I’m not just talking about the media, either.

Let me start by saying that this is probably gonna be all over the place, because that’s exactly where my brain is and my emotions are. Just everywhere.

From the very beginning of the situation, I’ve seen people rush to conclusions, REFUSING to wait for some facts (going in on the first guy who was detained w/out waiting to confirm that was the guy…IT WASN’T), turn this into something it’s not, and on and on and on.

And yes, these people include blacks. It came to a point where it seemed like some people were literally looking for ANYTHING to be mad about. No matter how inaccurate.  As if the act of domestic terrorism isn’t enough.

Somehow, this turned into a conversation about gun control.

Somehow, this turned into a conversation about drugs.

Somehow, this turned into a conversation about mental health.

Graham’s reaction to Wednesday’s attack on a black church in his home state of South Carolina was very different. (His niece, coincidentally, went to school with the shooter). Graham is adamant that the attack is not evidence of any larger problem.

Graham, who is on his way to Charleston, said his niece did not recall Roof making any statements that were related to race.

I just think he was one of these whacked out kids. I don’t think it’s anything broader than that,” Graham said. “It’s about a young man who is obviously twisted.”

{Think Progress}

(Not that Dylann Roof LITERALLY said he intended to start a race war, but I digress)

Somehow, this turned into a conversation against the police.

(And by the way guys, he WAS handcuffed. Ankles too. And the vest is standard procedure. Plus, if anybody were REALLY trying to kill him, that vest wouldn’t have stooped that. SO yeah. Cut it out.)

To the first three points, this isn’t a conversation about ANY of that. None of these things drove Dylann Roof to walk into a church and start shooting.

There is ONE thing that drove this. ONE.

White Supremacy. The hatred of blacks.

(I mean, REALLY? What an idiot.)

Or whatever other “excuse” y’all try to put out there.

Nope. Don’t care.

ALL I care about, is this:

Finally, a couple of the most disturbing reactions I’ve seen is the attack on the Christian faith and how the families are handling their grief. Somehow, the word “forgiveness” has become a BAD thing, even by those who are saying they are Christians themselves.

I don’t understand.

Starting the night of the attack, people were calling for prayer. And the responses were absolutely horrible. I wrote this on Facebook:

I want people to stop criticizing believers who say “pray” in times like these. We are people of faith, prayer is part of our daily lives PERIOD. So yes, in times of trouble, we turn to the most high God.

HOWEVER, that DOES NOT MEAN, that we are saying to pray…and that’s it. Prayer and works go hand in hand. Pray and protest. Pray and resist. Pray and arm yourselves to protect yourselves against hate.

If you aren’t a believer…OKAY! That’s fine. But PLEASE stop criticizing those who are because we are using our faith in times of trouble…just like we are supposed to.

And yes, I 100% support people exercising their legal RIGHT to bear arms and protect themselves and their families. Y’ll better wake up.

(P.S. Gun ownership wouldn’t have helped those people in SC if their gun laws are like the ones here in Texas. It is illegal to have a concealed gun on the premises of a place of worship.)

Prayer doesn’t hurt ANYTHING. In fact, it can ONLY help. If you don’t believe in prayer, FINE. But how dare you speak ill of those who do?

And then stuff like this…

Word?

Well if you’re so bout it, then what are you “waiting” on bro? And this is to him and all of the rest of you who aren’t satisfied with the work that peaceful protesters are doing, but aren’t offering up any other solution or plan.

What are you waiting on? You want to get something violent started? You’re so big and bad? Well….make your move, right? Why sit behind a keyboard and tweet about it?

Oh.

Yeah.

And then…

YES. Yes yes yes.

I said a long time ago that these faithless activists (etc) who talk down on those who ARE believers basically make it seem like there’s no room for us in the movement. But that’s another topic for another day.

Some of the family members said they forgive Dylann Roof. And again, the reactions were so disrespectful toward those family members.

Somehow, forgiveness has turned into a bad thing. There are Christians saying they REFUSE to forgive. Like, ever? Tell me, how does that work? Well actually, don’t. I’m good.

YES.

HOWEVER, I WILL say that I hate that I feel like they felt some type of pressure to publicly say they forgive him, as to seem like “good” people. Because that is honestly how I feel.

Emotionally surrendering.

Your family members were murdered Wednesday. By Friday there were public statements of forgiveness. Again, they are doing what they have been CALLED to do. But. Whew.

 

We (blacks, especially black Christians) aren’t allowed to experience and express anger. That’s a no no.

And that is terrible. And unfair. And very dangerous.

There is so much more I didn’t touch on in here. For example, the judge “reminding” us that the family members of Dylann Roof are victims as well. Or the National Rifle Association board member blaming the pastor, Sen. Clementa Pinckney, for his own death, plus the eight others.

It’s all too much.

And I’m exhausted. And sad. And feel defeated.

My bottom line is this.

1.  Attacking the Christian faith is unfair. If you aren’t a believer, that’s fine. But now is REALLY not the time. It just isn’t. That’s insensitive and unnecessary. Plus, it’s VERY clear that a lot of y’all don’t understand the faith anyway sooooo…

But MOST of all…

2. CALL THIS WHAT IT IS. An attack on black people, for NO other reason than they were black.

This was a hate crime.

This was racially motivated.

This was domestic terrorism.

And until we get people to say that there IS a growing race problem right here in the United States of America, that some whites DO hate blacks JUST for being black and act out on it, we will continue to see this.

That’s a fact.

This is worth the watch (if you haven’t seen it before).

 

^^WORD.

Oh. And South Carolina, take down the confederate flag on your state capitol. Then maybe, JUST maybe, that’ll stop racists from feeling embraced and MORE than welcomed in your state.

There’s only so much we can take.

Systemic/Institutionalized Racism (perfectly) explained in under 7 minutes.

Systemic Racism.

Systemic racism occurs when the way a society is structured systematically ends up giving advantages to some and disadvantages to others.

It may be helpful… to think about the criminal justice system… not as an independent system but rather a gateway into a much larger system of racial stigmatization and permanent marginalization…. The vast majority of conviced offenders will be descriminated against, legally, for the rest of their lives – denied employment, housing, education, and public benefits. Unable to surmount these obstacles, most will eventually return to prison and then be released again, caught in a closed circuit of perpetual marginality. Source: The New Jim Crow, by Michelle Alexander, p. 186.

I’m just gonna leave this here.

WORD.
