the thing to realize here is that conservatives find the idea of paying workers a livable wage so absurd that they make hyperbolic comparisons like this
because fifteen dollars an hour and a hundred thousand dollars an hour both mean the same thing to them; more than you deserve
^That commentary is very important.
Reblogging this because, despite not being from the States, this fucking thing happens around the world! Why pay workers what we deserve?
Nope. Work is a service, and the price system can determine how much it’s worth just as well as it can with anything else, and an arbitrary dollar value imposed on employers doesn’t help in any amount. That’s the point. Instead of addressing the fundamental problems with our economic system, and countering the things that make the average cost of living so high, people like this just want to divert the problem to future generations in the form of net economic losses. You see a “living wage”, but I see what makes people die with less, and what will murder future generations for centuries to come, if we even live that long while everyone wants to do each other harm because of their various debts. Minwage doesn’t improve the economy, it just makes it easier on some of the workers, while screwing their proginy. The State is at war with the youth, and it’s time that became understood more widely, and not eschewed because Jon Stewart is clever.
Y’all need Hazlitt.

They need to go after the camera man too, EVERY TIME. That’s when this dumb shit will stop.
I want someone to beat the absolute fuck out of them.
What the fuck. It’s just a fucking pair if shoes. He bopped the damn shoes. Why they throwin fists over a fuckin boop. Maybe tell them to back the hell up and not try it again, but what the fuck.
"It’s just a fucking pair if shoes."
True but if I worked hard to make my money to buy myself a pair of shoes and your dumbass comes along and steps on them as a “joke” you gotdamn right I’m gonna be pissed about it.
"Maybe tell them to back the hell up and not try it again"
They purposely stepped on their shoes. Mind you, Jordans are not cheap. People take pride in what they wear. But ultimately it’s a matter of respect. These white kids are disrespectful.
These “_______ in the hood” videos are made to provoke black people into acting out for cheap laughs and YouTube views. It gives white America a reason to laugh at us and call us animals. They make these videos to make us as a people look bad.
They deserved every one of those licks.
These dudes had a fucking death wish. NEVER EVER step on a black man’s shoes, especially if they are Jordans
cosbyykidd, I don’t think those people were made to look bad by the YouTubers. I think it’s their default state. What action someone does on camera is what action one really wants other people to see, or are actions one hasn’t thought about displaying to whatever audience watches the recording. The YouTuber didn’t “make them look bad” — they did. NTM, things like Loiter Squad, WSHH, and a host of other things, don’t help. Plus, just Googling “stupid white people” comes with a host of celebrated anti-white sentiment, so to say that “giving ‘x’ America a reason to laugh at us” is exclusive to “white America”, or that only the obverse should be true, well, keep in mind what site you’re on. Also, only one of those people is “white”, as if that really means anything to begin with.

white people: “youre asian so you must like rice”
Tumblr: you’re white, so you must be racist
