White student protesters should be prepared for Micro Aggressions like this,

Mizzou protesters segregate by race; white students asked to leave ‘black-only healing space’

Certainly, this is a small price for these brave white students to pay since they will always have to answer for their White Privilege.

This Mizzou thing has escalated beyond lunacy. Can anyone even conceive the media shitstorm that would accompany whites excluding blacks from a proposed "safe space?"

I wish I could embed Vines here. You could hear the various suicide bombs go off from within the Stade de France during the France/Germany game. Afterwards, authorities sealed the stadium preventing patrons from leaving, and had people moving onto the pitch and away from the outer walls of the stadium. Wanted to keep fans from walking into a war zone outside.

EDIT: Video URL is here: blob:https%3A//vine.co/5fa2a0fa-2bc3-41fd-9f94-7a082223dc1a

And this ESPN article has video for US-viewers

I saw your ESPN link and asked myself: will they mention the score of the game? Can't say I was surprised that they did...

Same root word.  I'm sure that checks out in latin somehow.

"Freedom isn't free, but it should be, for me at least."

If only Hillary could fit that on a bumper sticker.

So there’s a tradeoff here, with Vegan Outreach on one side and PETA on the other.

Vegan Outreach can get everyone to agree in principle that factory-farming is bad, but no one will pay any attention to it.

And PETA can get everyone to pay attention to factory farming, but a lot of people who would otherwise oppose it will switch to supporting it just because they’re so mad at the way it’s being publicized.

But at least they’re paying attention!

PETA doesn’t shoot themselves in the foot because they’re stupid. They shoot themselves in the foot because they’re traveling up an incentive gradient that rewards them for doing so, even if it destroys their credibility.

It's written from a left-wing perspective (Does every reasonable person really believe that factory farming is evil or that Eric Garner was murdered?). But, regardless, it's a good elaboration on the reasons social justice warriors and the media love stupid causes.
