Exxon Mobil is believed to be the largest Fortune 500 company to discriminate against LGBT employees. To see if this holds true in the hiring process, the LGBT group Freedom to Work created fake resumes for two candidates applying for an open position. One applicant appears more qualified for the job and has experience in LGBT activism, while the other seems somewhat less qualified but does not show any sign of being LGBT.

Here's a look at what happened. Does Exxon discriminate against LGBT applicants? You tell me. (via the Huffington Post

Today marks the 24th anniversary of the Tiananmen Square massacre, and of course Chinese cyber security is on high alert try to keep this event wiped from it's official histories.

Chinese people have embraced memes and weibo to circumvent Chinese censorship, and ensure that this landmark is not forgotten.  

Censored terms have included: Tiananmen Square, abbreviations of the numbers 6, 4, 89 code including "May 35th", "535" code, french language versions of the numbers listed above, roman numerals, tank man, and words such as today, that day, special day… and "big yellow duck".

Such filters, obviously, are much more difficult to apply to photos, but their continued, dogged prevalence online has more to do with specific dedication and deliberately subversive perseverance on the part of the people than it has to do with any kind of "slipping through the cracks."

Censorship comes from abuses within government, not from the culture or the masses, who continue to push back by refusing to be shoved under the rug. Fight the power!

The amount of anti-East Asian sentiment amongst non-East Asian PoC on this site is pretty astounding. 

theres something about it that i find interesting though cause its like… there is plenty of anti-east asian sentiment in poc communities in nyc but ive never seen such an extensive effort to masquerade it as social justice, like ive never seen such a deliberate motion made by so many to be so bigoted and then act utterly APPALLED when u call it what it is. and have the audacity to ridicule, harass and berate the east asian people, most notably the east asian WOMEN who dare to speak up for themselves and their standing. not only are these people anti-east asian, theyre deeply misogynistic as well. the disproportionate amount of hateful treatment against east asian women is really blatant.

imo its not possible to be sex positive and support capitalism since profit motive is what keeps the world of prostitution and sex slavery spinning. if you actually support the institution of prostitution based on the fact that you have heard of people saying they liked being prostitutes then you are not "sex positive" and you are only a "human being" in the technical sense.

South Dakota commits shocking genocide against Native Americans » peoplesworld


Genocide is not too strong a term for what is now happening in South Dakota. The huge, shocking violation of legal and human rights being carried out by the state is tantamount to genocide against the Native American nations, the Lakota, Dakota and Nakota Sioux, residing within its borders. It is the abduction and kidnapping by state officials, under the cover of law, of American Indian children.

This is a gross violation of the Indian Child Welfare Act (ICWA) of 1978.  Further, these abominable kidnappings are being upheld by the courts of that state.

The best approach to this crime against humanity is by the following initial checklist:

  1. Over 700 American Indian children are removed by South Dakota state officials from their homes every year.
  2. These hundreds are sent to white foster homes or group homes.
  3. Many are adopted by white families.
  4. Indian children account for 13.8 percent of the state's child population, yet they represent 56.3 percent of the foster care population.
  5. Of the hundreds of Native children in foster care in 2011, 87 percent were placed in non-Indian homes while Native foster homes went empty.
  6. Because of its targeting Native children, South Dakota is currently removing children from their families at a higher rate than the vast majority of other states in the U.S.
  7. Once removed, the state's courts routinely keep Indian children from even seeing their families for at least 60 days.
  8. The state's Department of Social Services (DSS) workers warn Native children that if they become emotional during a visit with their parents, the visits will be discontinued (this is incredible!).

This is genocide as defined by the United Nations General Assembly's Convention on the Prevention and Punishment of the Crime of Genocide. This Convention (Article 2) defines genocide as follows :

"… any of the following acts commit with intent  to destroy, in whole or in part, a national, ethnical, racial or religious group, as such:

(a) Killing members of the group;
(b) Causing serious bodily or mental harm to members of the group;
(c) Deliberately inflicting on the group conditions of life calculated to bring about its destruction in whole or in part;
(d) Imposing measures intended to prevent births within the group;
(e) Forcibly transferring children of the group to another group."

South Dakota is committing blatant and flagrant genocide against the Sioux people in violation of subsection (e) of Article 2 by transferring Indian children to white homes, and also of subsection (b) amid allegations of sexual abuse and drugging of Native children in DSS foster care. Those responsible need to be brought to justice in an international court of law in addition to the lawsuit already filed in U.S courts (see below). This is a most serious case of ethnic cleansing.

One Indian mother had 62 hearings and was never allowed to present any witness testimony, never even allowed to see the petition filed against her.  This is a huge violation of long established U.S. due process. Also, the Indian Child Welfare Act mandates that Native children shall first be placed with tribal relatives, non-related tribal members, or members of other tribes before non-Indian families can be considered.

South Dakota has taken a step back into the late 19th century, when thousands of Indian children were forcibly removed from their homes by U.S. soldiers and sent to boarding schools - allegedly for education, where the motto was "Kill the Indian, Save the Man." In some of these schools the motto was more akin to simply "Kill the Indian."

This journalist has heard numerous accounts from families across Indian Country who had lost at least one child to the boarding school system in the 19th century. They were told that their child or children had run away from the school and could not be found. In other cases they were informed that their child had died from illness.

For the Lakota people this has been a continuation of a 100-year history of child abduction. This began in the 1880s under the U.S. government policy of forced assimilation (genocide); children as young as 5 years old were forcibly removed from their homes and taken to boarding schools hundreds of miles away. Now it is happening again, this time under the mask of state-run foster care. Over the past decade over 5,000 Sioux children have been removed from their homes. According to a recent report by the Indian Child Welfare Act directors in South Dakota, 740 Lakota children are removed to foster care each year and 90 percent are placed in white homes and institutions.

A vigorous campaign is currently being waged by the Lakota People's Law Project to secure the return of over 2,200 Lakota, Dakota and Nakota children illegally taken from their homes by DSS.

Among the results of the LPLP efforts was the recent Great Plains Indian Child Welfare Act Summit held May 15-17 in Rapid City, South Dakota. The summit was held in an atmosphere that has been characterized by the Oglala Sioux Tribe as a "child welfare emergency."

The summit also had as a backdrop a federal class action lawsuit that was filed on March 21 by the Oglala and Rosebud Sioux Tribes and tribal members, challenging the continued removal of Native children in Pennington County, South Dakota, from their homes.

South Dakota DDS has asserted that it had authority to remove children by tribal court order or tribal council agreement. The states have no authority over such youngsters; the tribes have exclusive jurisdiction over Indian children residing on reservations.

However, investigations by LPLP found that South Dakota's assertions are blatantly false.

Typically, DDS would receive a false report of child neglect on a given reservation and without any legal authority would snatch the child in question without any notification to the child's relatives. In one such instance DSS abducted a young boy when he left his relatives to use the restroom while family members were attending a high school graduation ceremony. It was weeks before his family found where he had been taken.

Aside from the genocidal racism involved there is a financial motive on the part of the state. South Dakota receives $79,000 from the federal government per year per child for every Native youngster it removes, but provides only $9,000 to a white foster home. The remaining $70,000 is deposited in state coffers.

The president of the Oglala Sioux Tribe and other Natives feel that the ICWA lawsuit is for greater fairness for all families, regardless of race, including whites. But, it must be remembered that white youngsters are not being sent to non-white homes; for whites, genocide is obviously not an issue. The humanity of Indian people, particularly in the face of the racism they have endured is truly poignant and moving. This becomes a movement not just for Indian people, but for all, led by long-suffering, grieving Native families.

Kerry Washington repping as the only WoC in THR's TV Actress Roundtable

The Hollywood Reporter: What's your worst audition?

Connie Britton: "We just didn't get you."

Anna Gunn: "We just didn't respond to you."

Monica Potter: I'd just had my last kid..I was pushing like 180 pounds at the time. I'm like, "You guys, I just don't feel physically fit yet." I had my Spanx on and looked like a damn sausage, but I went in and thought I did a really good job. I got home and get the call from my agents. I'm like, "I did good, right?" And they say, "You did great. The problem is you're just …" "I'm too fat." "Yeah, we're just going to wait a little bit." I said, "I already told you this!" The weight thing is a crappy thing in this town, you know?

Elizabeth Moss: On the first season of "Mad Men," I had to wear a fat suit and prosthetic makeup to make me look bigger.... We all have this perception of what we're supposed to look like. But that's what's so great about all these women here today: We're all completely different-looking, you know? We're all beautiful, but real women.

Connie Britton: I agree. I've never had somebody say to me that I needed to look a certain way for a role, but I've always lived in dread of what that would be like. It's our responsibility to play these full-fledged women, and to play women who look like people we actually see in life. It's more interesting, and I think audiences appreciate it, too.

Kerry Washington: It's a little bit different for me because I'll audition for something and they'll just decide that they're not going "ethnic" with a character, which I hear a lot.

The Hollywood Reporter: Casting directors still use the word "ethnic"?
Kerry Washington: If not "black," then yeah. People have artistic license … that's what casting is: fitting the right look to the right character. Whereas you could maybe lose some weight, there's not really anything I can do, nor would I want to, about being black.

This basically shows that bisexual people report seeing only very slightly less biphobia in supposedly "LGBT" media than in "mainstream" media. 

Think this is interesting and useful information? It comes (free of charge! to Bisexual NGO's/Charities and Academics) from the good people who do the annual International LGBT (marketing) Survey. So bisexual people, Remember to Add You Voice to the 2013 survey.
