Meanwhile, On TumblR: Donald Trump’s Latest Racism And Bruce Lee

By Andrea Plaid

Tumblizens really loved NY Daily News writer Zerlina Maxwell’s take on Donald Trump’s latest racist efforts to undermine President Obama’s credibility:

Apparently, Donald Trump, a man very concerned with whether President Obama, a Harvard-educated law professor, is just another dumb brown person riding the affirmative action ticket, wants to give $5 million dollars to charity if the President releases his college transcripts.

This is what racism looks like. Please save the, “Oh you are a typical liberal always playing the race card” response and take a moment to hear me out. First, racism is not a card. It’s a reality for many black and brown people in 2012. If you are not a person of color, it’s important you don’t find yourself quickly discounting the pervasive existence of racism in 2012, without actually speaking with a person of color. Assuming things are just better because we can drink at the same water fountain isn’t sufficient.

And, looking at what Tumblizens <3′d and reblogged the most this week, the late Bruce Lee still gets all sorts of love:

Swing by and check out what we’re <3′ing and reblogging–and commenting on–at the R’s Tumblr!

    Samuel L. Jackson is my Chuck Norris, so I’m pretending that macro applies to him as well. I say “pretending” because I like that he thinks being in bad movies is fun, and that does make him a really awesome joke in my mind.
