How to talk to white people*


Yes, a post that does not follow its own advice:

Since I am so bad at talking to White Americans I will, for the most part, simply list the opposite of what I do:

  1. Smile.
  2. Master small talk. I am terrible at this. Big time.
  3. Do not be yourself. You know, like what they seem to do.
  4. Keep your feelings to yourself. Mine make them uncomfortable.
  5. Do not point out the wrong in what they say – unless they will blame you for it later (“Why didn’t you tell me!?” )
  6. Never make it clear that you have more money or intelligence. They will hate you for it.
  7. Use the same kind of English as Ellen DeGeneres: accent, grammar, word choice, rhythm, volume, all of it, as close as you can get it. Because people who do not talk right have something wrong with them. Even…

Shannon Richardson has small roles in walking dead and sandra bullock’s ‘blind side’. you probably wouldnt recognize her then. she sent poisonous letters to obama. idiot…why would someone put their name on it? did she put her return address on it, too? has she even heard of fingerprints? did she even clear her internet search? did she do it ’cause she realizes her hubby doesn’t love her? “I’m not a bad person. I don’t have it in me to hurt anyone.”

svu’s “Spousal Privilege”: my review of the episode and detectives

the svu detectives watch a video (from a spoof of tmz) where a drunk couple are fighting. he spanks her and the next thing you know he’s dragging her body out. he’s a celebrity who’s an ex-nfl player and current sportscaster. benson seems to be the only bright detective because she thinks that he knocked her out. if she fell and hurt herself, could the big, buff ex-athlete and nfl star just carry her out? plus, he seems to be violent. i’m not saying try him then and there, but bring him in for questioning and try to scare him into thinking that you’re on to him. make him back off a bit? or will that just make it worst? rollins states that, “it ain’t easy dragging out a 100 pound of drunk.” or something.

benson and fin question the couple. she asks to use the bathroom in order to separate them. by the way, he snapped at his 8 year son with his girlfriend ’cause he wanted to show them something but interrupted the grownups. the son was terrorifed.

at the police station, benson points out that the boy is terrorifed of his dad, but fin just says that his mother beat his ass and, so, he was terrorifed of his mother, too. benson tells them that the father has anger issues and is shocked at her team’s argument ‘gainst her. rollins points out that in the south, they had to pick their own switch. amaro said that he was beat, too. they think it teaches them right form wrong but the american academy of pediatrics opposes this and even spanking. spanking is illegal in 31 countries. you can’t beat a criminal but you can beat your own kid? seriously. hypocrisy. benson seems agitated,”you’re chalking this up to cultural differences.”

anyways, they watch the entire video and realize see aj knocking his wife out. he had previously stated that she was attacking him, but he defended himself and she fell. he got scared. benson pointed out the weight difference, but little people can do some serious harm. broken nose, black eyes, bloody lips, knocked out teeth, bruises, ect.  anyways, i digress. the team picks him up. would they ignore it in real life? celebrities have money, so they can hire the best lawyers. aren’t they afraid of fans coming after them? celebrities’ stalkers? the media accusing them of giving preferential treatment to celebrities. (paula was a newscaster who made 1/100 of his salary.) they even reference ray rice. benson: “After Ray Rice…if it looks like domestic violence, we follow up.”

the defense and the couple play the race card, claiming that the police is after him ’cause he’s a successful black man, so he needs to be taken down a notch. in the middle of the trial, they get married. needless to say, aj is saving his own ass ’cause you can’t make spouses tesify against each other. something tells me that he doesn’t trust paula. meanwhile, paula, foolishly trusts him with her life and the life of her son. paula’s criticized for staying with him.

calhoun is the defense’s lawyer. she keeps arguing that the two are a passionate couple and it was a heat of the moment thing that got out of hand. she has their priest on the stand who claims that they are a loving couple of equals. he claims that they’re good people. calhoun tells the jury that aj is working on his issues and is in anger management. benson states that she doesn’t believe that works. calhoun argues that their detective was in it and he is back in the squad. benson states that amaro is a decorated cop who lost his temper with a child molestor and not his wife. i’m surprised that calhoun didn’t mention that he was not convicted and it was so recent! maybe, the show is trying to say that defense attorneys feel guilty sometiems and subconsciously tyr to sabotague their cases? probably just lazy writing. benson explains to the jury that victims often stay with their abusers because of emotional and/or financial dependence on them. she forgets to mention physcial safety? the fear of the sadness and/or betrayal the son may face? victims might know that abuse escalates when the victim threatens to leave?

he says he’s sorry. he’s charismatic. the prosecutor, barba, thought he’d lose because she didn’t want ot testify and he’s charismatic. he only agreed ’cause he got angry at calhoun and aj. that doesn’t make sense? wouldn’t he be angrier if he loses (which he think he will?) are the writers trying to say the jury is stupid? they seem to imply that a lot and casey novak, a former ada, even stated “no jury is that stupid” after they find out about the case where the grandma is poisoning her own granddaughter for donations. it’s the episode where they base it on the michael jackson case.

barba shows the jurry that paula is a victim, even though she claims she’s not and they’re in love and will work it out on their own along with their priest’s help and anger management class. she takes part of the blame and points out that they were both drunk. he points out that she quit her job as an a and e reporter to be with him. she moves in wiht a much older man after a few months. he asks her the last time she spent time with guys, girlfriends, or her sister without him there? paula just says that aj is her life as well as her son and home. he asks her when the last time she spent time with anyone close to her. he asks if it’s because they don’t approve. he points out that she looks at him before answering. he tells her not to be afraid of him ’cause he can’t hurt her. does he really care about her or trying to get sympathy from the jurors? both? she snaps that she wont leave him and he asks if she’s heard that statement from her sister and/or friends that she ought to do that.

calhoun makes a desparate argument that what happened happened out of the blue, they were both drunk, came from homes where violence is expected, they were stressed out from the event and from his fans (aggravated tone which seems to impy that she’s trying to scapegoat them; really desparate matter), and concludes that they will tear his family apart. she says that she doesn’t think that this is what the justice system is supposed to be about and asks them if they think that that is what it’s about. (she doesnt go for the race card. )

she seems to act really passionate because seh thinks it’ll help win the jury over. part of her must have known that she’s going to lose ’cause she tried to stop a cross-examination and she was so shocked that she los the case? she probably wanted the judge to toss the “not guilty” verdict but the judge dismisses the jury. she coudn’t even finish her sentence. i wonder if she’ll stop representing criminals. she’s the go-to lawyer for the svu detectives. maybe she’ll even be a prosecutor again?

Barba states that by not convicting aj, the jury is sending a message out to society that it’s ok to beat your wife, to control her, to intimidate her,ect. he points out that society has grown and understand that women are not property. barba implies that aj thinks of her as his property. i wonder if he’s not allowed to say it. he’s found guilty, but barba thinks he’ll get 2 years aka the minimum. their dr (witness) stated that he could’ve killed her since he’s so strong (ex pro athlete) or given her a serious cranial injury(brain). barba points out that aj doesn’t care abou this wife which is why he picked her up like garbage and that he knew how dangerous it was for her to be unconscious, yet he didn’t get her any medical attention.

sub-plot: rollins states that a woman can be blamed for causing a man to attack her. she’s drunk and she gets in nick (her lover)’s face and shoves him several times in front of the entire bar. he smashes the glass and walks away. (he pays extra for it.) amaro merely states he’s doing what aj should’ve done. so…if the couple hate each other, why are they staying together? cant get anybody ’cause of their job? doubt it. just bizarre. oh, she seems to be a lousy detective at this point. plus, the illegal gambing club.

it’s sad that domestic violence is focused thanks to celebrity beatings. (benson states that hey check out cases that look like domestic violence after ray rice. real life ray rice story: reinstated to nfl on nov. 28th, baltimore ravens fired him, got counseling instead of sentencing. the tmz bit of this episode is like the video of him beating her.) so society thinks celebrites are better than the rest of us? what happened to we are all created equal? well, it’s obviously not true. some look better, some are far more resilient, some (20%) are dandelion children which means victims of child abuse yet grow up w/o any psychological problem, some 1/3 children of self-made millionaires grow up to be failures despite all the parental encouragement, support, ect. some even survived concentration camps w/o losing self-worth. (see dr dean ornish’s reversing heart diease). they believe that self-worth comes from within.

by the way, series star Mariska Hargitay (benson), runs the Joyful Heart Foundation which fights domestic violence and has done so for over a decade. she became interested after she won the role of det(now sergeant…wonder if elliot would’ve become one if meloni hadn’t left ’cause he wanted more money) benson.

My Review of SVU: Glasgowman’s Wrath (episode where girl helps her friend try to kill her little sister and they both get away with it)

Needless to say, the three girls were pathetic, miserable losers. 10-year-old Zoe is the perpetual punching bag of her 12-year-old sister, Mia, and her best friend, 13-year-old Perry. (i wouldn’t be surpised if they were hooking up ’cause the two girls’ lives basically revolve around each other). what kind of 10 year old keeps tagging along with her sister’s who’s an obvious bitch to her? the show starts with the two older girls scaring zoe when she’s asleep at perry’s house or apartment. does zoe have friends? if not, why doesn’t she just join some clubs and meet people? you don’t have to have friends to have plenty of positive social interaction. maybe just read, take strolls, bike around, watch tv, listen to music, ect.why didn’t the mom(s) of the sisters encourage the two to stay away from each other? ps based on a real story where girls goes into woods and stabs the one who ,somehow, manages to get a boyfriend.

next thing we know, Zoe’s found, nearly stabbed to death, by a birdwatcher who’s lost a marble. carisi had to explain to her that they are asking about what the man looked like after zoe’s found; not the bird. her femoral artery would’ve been pierced if the wound had gone two mm deeper. the birdwatcher descibed him as a turkey vulture and told him to shoo. seriously? doesn’t this lady know anything? umm….if he had been the killer, would go after me like he did the little girl? hmm…makes me wonder. i did see him acting so weird around a bleeding girl who may actually be dead. heaven or hell? purgatory? or somewhere great beyond?

zoe wakes up and remembers a lot. this is tv. zoe tells the detectives, amaro and rollins, that her sister and her best friend are missing. they were sleeping over at her sister’s best (and only) friend’s house. it turns out that mia and perry have been planning this for quite some time. they lied to each other’s parents about who they were have a sleepover with. also, zoe is 10, but she seriously believed that they were looking for a creature that is powerful enough to let them live in his dimension and they dont have to follow any rules? the is a lame get rich quick scheme. what kind of 10 year old falls for that? most 10 year olds already know the truth about…santa claus, the easter bunny, ect. why would she trust her sister who treats her like crap? why does mia feel so little affection towards her sister? what the fuck is wrong with her mother? is the other lady her mother’s girlfriend? it was never established in the episode. if she’s lesbian, then there’s a higher chance that mia is, as well.

the detectives attempt to locate the other girls. zoe’s phone is found at the bottom of perry’s hamster’s cage. mia’s and perry’s are there, too. why would they put them there? what if the hamster poops on there? they ditched the phones because they didn’t want them to be found but aren’t there plenty of other hiding places.

benson finds out from zoe about them trying to find big foot-bill gates-god. just pointing out that he’s rich and not suggesting that bill gates is involved in something like this in real life. seriously. while they cant find perry or mia, they find a crazy caveman. this man doesn’t take his meds and is mentally ill. the gov is actually watching this guy. he came out screaming and was tased by an untrained cadet. (real cops gone somewhere; i forgot.) carisi stops it. this man believes that cells will kill him and the gov uses them to track him down.

at the police station, carisi talks to him and gets him to trust him (magically quick or he’s desparate for some company? maybe svu should try to make the timeline a little bit more realistic) guy’s name is charlie. charlie says that he found zoe bleeding and wanted to try to get her help. his eyepatch covers one eye and he has carisi adjust it by putting it over the other eye when he goes in to the sunshine and when he goes into his little cave (it’s so small…er i mean cozy) to retrieve the surviellence device left there by the government. presumedly, the federal gov, the un, ect. it was the camera of the girls. rollins find a bloody knife. evidence is pointing towards him being the stabber.

charlie explains about the knife. the detectives watch the footage and zoe confesses about what they were doing during their scary fun time. apparently, zoe believed that they’ll find a gateway in the woods in the dark where they will find the Glasgowman, who will invite them into his mansion where there’s no rules and no school. and people with glasses are supposed to be smart! turns out the babysitter of perry told them the story. perry’s mommy has a hard time finding a babysitter. what kind of 12 year old needs a babysitter? she just turned 13. this is a made-up character by perry’s babysitter, leslie, who was convinced that the girls knew it was a story. well, 2 of them did. leslie was doing a graphic novel where the three girls were covered in blood. um…why are all the people in this story crazy? the police threatens to tear his place apart ’til they find what they’re looking for. leslie surrenders the location of the gateway. 2 of his clients could be missing and/or dead, yet he doesn’t help the police? yeah, he’s not going to be babysitting anytime soon.

when the cops arrive, rollins spots a dead cat. it was stabbed in the heart. perry’s arm was stabbed and mia was tied up. both girls were dehydrated. their story doesnt match up. perry said she was fighting him off, but no bruises. plus, her wounds were too fresh for her timeline. and the dead cat. yeah, the police jumped to the obvious conclusion: the two girls did it. perry only stabbed herself to pass herself off as crazy, so she wouldn’t get in trouble.

the girls are interviewed separately for obvious reasons. mia claims that perry’s crazy and they only wen tinto the woods to scare zoe by abandoning her for a little while. she claimed that perry just grabbed a rock to knock zoe out, stab her several times, and put a knife over mia’s throat. she made her cover up her little sister. the police don’t buy it; they acted sane and tried to pin the blame on the crazy guy up until the moment when they realize that the police is on the them. they must watch a lot of cop shows and didn’t record what they planned to do on to their phones and computers. the police could retrieve it even after they delete it. the girls are really brave. they really know how to lie to the police. i’m impressed and they know how to pass themselves off as crazy.

perry stabbed the cat ’cause the cat was Glasgowman and he wanted her to kill mia. then, perry’s arm got too hot, so she stabbed it to cool it off. the police unleased this god-thing because they rescued them. perry tells the same story in court. the judge buys this ridiculous story (and, sadly, so does Carisi who argued that mia would never hurt her little sister…which is really weird ’cause he doesn’t know them) and Mia gets no time while Perry is sentenced to a mental facility. lots of criminals could learn from perry and easily get away with their crimes. in the elevator, there is scary music which probably means that the two girls will try to (and succeed) in getting rid of that zoe. perry’s mother is pissed at mia’s mother. no explanation. could the writers be saying that perry gets her nastiness from her? carisi watches mia pinky-swear zoe. since mia made eye contact first, could mia have been the mastermind?

how to avoid a similar situation: be nice, be safe, stay away from bitches who dont like you, and if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. zoe, get some self-respect.

My Useless “Internships” from “Nonprofits” and What I Learned from Them Indirectly

You may be wondering about why I would put quotation marks around the word internships. Well, it’s because these so-called internships would be illegal if they were run by for-profits or businesses as opposed to nonprofits and government agencies. Legal internships under a business(es) are supposed to benefit the internee, are not met to displace and/or replace actual workers, is supposed to be an academic experience akin to the ones you get in class (or are, at least suppose to), the employer may actually lose resources while training internees, and if you want to read the entire list of requirements, then simply wikipedia it or look up “legal definitions of internships for businesses.” The places where I interned for made more than many small businesses, yet were in no legal obligation to provide internships for people to learn from. They were too cheap to hire workers at minimum wage, so they put up misleading ads on for unpaid interns. Also, they weren’t doing anything to actually society because they sucked.

One of my internships was at a political campaign (fun fact: poli means many and ticks means bloodsuckers) where the so-called underdog raised nearly a million dollars and he lost the campaign. They ran it so badly that they were actually criticized by a local newspaper. I didn’t get an interview; I got a public interrogation. An overweight blonde guy sucked in his stomach and made fun of him for tutoring my severely autistic brother. He just goes around telling people that their political campaign is met to defeat the opponent who is the puppet of big business, big development, and big real estate. Yeah, that’s why he was elected three times, you idiot!

Their ad clearly stated that they needed interns who will be placed in highly skilled positions with a high amount of responsibilty. If they truly believed what they wrote, then they’re either high or they need to be put in the cuckoo house. All they had me do was to type in names of people who claimed they were supporting them, their phone numbers, and the names of people who collected this alleged info. Hello? We live in California and some of these area codes come from DC! Many were from areas that clearly were not local. Then, they kept condescendingly asking me if I could handle it. I only did it ’cause I wanted to scan. After that task, I scanned the numbers into categories of “not home” (translation didn’t bother pick up the phone), “not voting” (politely declining ’cause you’re crazy and calling their homes to tell them this ridiculous nonsense), “yes” (wait, seriously?), “no”(an honest response which is more than I can describe the people working there), and “wrong number” (don’t call back and intrude in our peace). Plus, their campaign manager was an obnoxious lazy jerk who just shouted out, “Can somebody help her? She’s barely scanning.” Dude, your background is that you used to work at a night club (stripping sometimes to make ends meet? what exactly did he even do? it’s a really expensive city to live in; one of the most expensive cities). Some people wrote weird things, so I didn’t know where to scan them. He also told me,”I’m never the one to ask.” Every time I saw him, he was just texting. Busy guy, right? The woman who put up the ad was illegally slandering their opponent, a more widely known politician. Does she realize that she could be arrested and charged? One of the guys there felt up my finger…my ring finger while he told me what to do. I suggested that he make his screen larger so he wouldn’t have to squint. His face was approx. four inches from the screen. “I don’t have to squint at anything!” he snapped angrily. What does this say about the guy who picked his team?

The other was at a so-called charity which was as ineffective as any. Their bottom line was to convince Americans to stop hating themselves and to care about each other, the world’s oppressed, and the fragile ecosystem in which we all share. They state that Americans only care about money, sex, status, and power which means using people to get ahead in the perpetual race to the top. Newsflash guys, you’re not even a real charity! Their second main ridiculous goal was to stop the right-wingers from “abusing” their God and/or religion(s) to justify their beliefs that global warming is not going to put much of the world under the sea, stop their support of trickle-down economics which harm the economically challenge, and to stop the American empires from opressing and/or killing the defenseless, good people worldwide. Noble goals, but obviously un-enforcable seeing as how their free speech is protected by the First Amendment of the Constitution of the United States of America. It’d be far simpler and more logical to just explain how trickle-down economics harms people and to let voters vote against those who support it, teaching about fair trade which means supporting businesses which don’t oppress, teaching about micro-loans to help the Third World start their own small business esp for women and minorities who face discrimination and /or marginalization, and teaching people that 90%+ of scientists and 97% of published papers argue that global warming is truly devastating. Hopefully, even try to convince people to get companies to treat the Third World fairly. Finally, their third main goal is to stop the left from making fun of the Biblical God and/or the  Abrahamic religions. They think this drives people to vote against their economic best interests. Actually, most people are Republicans or Democrats because their family is, their church, their friends, and their genetics. seriously.…liberal-genegenetics-politics I do not agree with most Republican policies, but I respect those who disagree with me and believe that they are not voting for Republicans to hurt themselves or because they don’t care about poor people.

If you want to help for free, you can click on which gives .6 cups of food to animal shelters and there are several other links right next to it which offers  1.1 cups of food for the hungry, ect. You can do it once daily and put your e-mail down, so you can get daily reminders. There are plenty of fair trade items for sale and they are not nearly as expensive as you think, they have sales, and sometimes they even give free items away! is an excellent site that uses donates 10 grams of rice for every word you get correctly. Do it 5 times and then you donated a full bowl. It’s excellent if you want to practice for the SATs, get smarter to increase your odds of landing that awesome job, or just want to have some fun while you’re in the can. Heifer International offers you links so you can loan a little money for people to start their own business (say 60 dollars to a person who will return your money in set amount of time. perhaps 6 months? a little longer? there’s no interest guys.) Also, it’s pretty easy to volunteer. I just signed up for the Red Cross blood drive to help take care of donors. The limit is 110 lbs and I’m about 116 which means that I’m more likely to get side effects. My friend, Flora, was the president of the American Red Cross team at our school, and it was pretty easy to volunteer for the club. There were plenty of spaces open.

I won’t release their names because they might still have my personal info, which I surrendered in order to “intern” for them. They were worried about getting audited by the IRS, so they had me take out a whole file cabinet to re-arrange all the papers by year. They were so disorganized that there were papers from the 70s. They had me search people online by putting their names and the cities where they’re from. the executive director asked me if i could handle it several times. They told me that making brochures is too diffcult for me. We made those in grade schools and we summarized books instead of a website! Amazing huh? Their “nonprofit” was so poorly structured that the woman even told me that not to use social media…to search for the major donors  to manipulate them into donating more money. no surpise…plenty of people unsubscribed from them. The operations and audience development manager’s only experience was teaching the Torah (known as the Old Testament to Christians and I don’t know or care what it’s known as to Muslims). Honey, real operations managers make 150k and audience development managers make 78k. it can vary but operations and/or audience development managers have experience and skills that neither of the two women likely possess. They told me that “grassroots fundraising initiatives” part of their flyer just met selling their material to friends and family and trying to convince them to donate to their org. Then, I was supposed to learn how to make flyers, organize a concert, and help people renew subscriptions to their magazines. Oh, by organizing a concert, it just met to ask local clubs if they’ll let you use their club for free, asking musicians who are willing to perform for them, and printing out their names and times. This operations and audeince development manager is a butterface who probably makes minimum wage or quite possibly less. On my first day there, she put her ass on my hand twice, felt up my ass twice, and flexed her ass at me. by the way, she wasn’t wearing underwear. Oh and their organization earned 785 thousand (mainly through their magazine). Maybe they should also stop having useless meetings to try to increase youth memebership that last for 50 minutes, mention that intern lunches mean bringing your own, and  to remember to lock the bathroom door. why does there need to be a sign just for that?

There are some good unpaid internships out there. My cousin, Alex Wan, had one with Students First and it helped him build his skills which helped him get his job for the government to calculate pensions, ect. He enjoyed it. Shout out for all his help!

if I get an unpaid internship, I will make sure that they give me a clear orientation of what skills I’d learn and how they are important to which jobs out there, what kind of experience I’d get, and what kind of meetings we’d have (if any). I’d get a clear orientation before I accept or decline. I’d learn about the interesting assignments or challenging assignments that I’d be working on and know who’ll I’ll be working with and/or under. I’d expect a professional working environment where I can address any concerns. I’d understand if some nonprofits need me to do some clerical tasks for them because they lack resources to hire a temp, but it has to benefit me as well as them. If they are condescending, I’d run like the wind and I need to trust my gut more. That’s what they always teach in tv shows.

oh, and most unpaid internships aren’t worth it.

the national associaion of colleges and employers did years of studying college graduates. paid internships would help people get careers and higher paychecks while unpaid internships provide no real advantage and might even make one less employable. I read from another site called the atlantic weekly which stated that those wih paid internships tend to have similar gpas to those with unpaid ones, i’ve read that employers might prefer it if you got a real job during the hoidays to earn money, might wonder why your unpaid internships didn’t turn into a job, being a bartender for years demonstrates staying power, and learning computer skills like from codeacademy is more important than a series of simple tasks.
