One could do worse than be a swinger of birches.

Ask me anything   Submit   I could tell you so much about me. I really could. But I'm at once confused and fascinated that you would even care.

Video games are great, they let you try your craziest fantasies. For example, on the sims, you can have a job and a house

A south suburban man allegedly stabbed an elderly black woman in a Homewood grocery store because of her race.

Pol Danilov, 26, told police following his arrest that he attacked the senior citizen with a steak knife because she was black and an “easy target,” Cook County prosecutors said.

The 79-year-old woman was stabbed four times, in the back and neck Friday morning at Walt’s Food Store at 2345 183rd Street. The five-inch knife also punctured a lung, authorities said.

Danilov, of the 18400 block of Harwood Avenue in Homewood, remained in the store after the stabbing and was arrested.

He had a knife on him he was apprehended and told police “he believed the victim was vulnerable based on age and race,” police said.

Prosecutors said Danilov has a history of animosity against African-Americans. But Danilov said in court Saturday that he had “no recollection” of that history.

He was ordered held on a $500,000 bond on Saturday for attempted murder and committing a hate crime.

The victim was taken to a hospital and is “expected to make a full recovery,” according to police.


And the motherfucker stayed in the store until the police came.  AND he lives to see another day because they didn’t feel threatened by him.

But THEY are scared of US.

He had no fear

He knew he wasnt going to be harmed by the police

"For one thing, there’s Dido’ fetishization by the two Ashford brothers. While one brother sees her simply as an exotic "other" whom he can bed without forming attachments — very different from the attitude toward white women of the same time period, whose virtue was unequivocal and untouchable — the other is downright violent in his conception of Dido, calling her "repulsive" but still expressing a desire to rape her. The scenes in which that older, more violent Ashford brother addresses Dido directly, giving voice to his unbridled racism and at one point assaulting her, are indisputably disturbing, not just because they represent a disgusting and brutal history but because I see remnants of those attitudes today in the way the world perceives the bodies of black and brown women: exotic, sexual, sensual, different objects. We see it in the way Miley Cyrus and almost any given white pop star (Justin Timberlake and Robin Thicke, for example) use black women’s bodies as props in music videos: as something to be appropriated and used for one’s own pleasure and then cast off in pursuit of the next trend. In addition, the rape of black women still does not seem to carry much horror in 2014; it was most recently a punchline on Saturday Night Live, and last year Russell Simmons was forced to apologize for his highly offensive "Harriet Tubman Sex Tape." None of this is too different from the way the Ashford brothers perceive Dido’s body: as an exotic "other" not worthy of love or respect but merely of lust, and lust framed in a particularly problematic racism."
