An inside scoop on bigotry

Things Trump Supporters Say

It seems like I really have to just come to the understanding that people are seriously voting for the biggest bigot to ever run for president. So I also have to understand that there are many more bigots than I originally envisioned walking the country. However, bigotry comes from small-minded people—and small-brained. So I just want to point out some of the responses I've been given in arguments that prove this.


Me: Aren't you an immigrant?
Trump supporter: Yeah, but I don't fit the profile of the immigrants Trump is against.

Trump supporter: Why can't we be happy having two different opinions?
Me: Because your opinion involves voting for someone who seeks to oppress women, aka me.
Trump supporter: True.

Trump supporter: Melania really messed up. It's clear that she copied everything word-for-word from Michelle Obama.
The next day...
Same Trump supporter: They were just really similar; the words weren't even in the same order.


Trump supporter: Donald Trump is the emblem of the American Dream.
Me: He was actually always rich. Hillary came from a lower class background to become the first woman to be a presidential nominee.
Trump supporter: Well that's because of her last name.

Trump supporter: People who like Donald Trump are very open-minded and like discussion—unlike the intolerant left.

Me: Oh, for sure...


I'm not saying people can't have an opinion, I'm just saying: an opinion can be based on no facts at all and, therefore, be wrong.

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive.

In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
