Merf. Thinking is Hard.

Jha can has random thoughtz about tapirs, kitties, comics, pretty people, social justice, things in general.

 

lemuffinmistress:

So this just popped up on my facebook feed.
Former First Lady Barbara Bush read to some kids at a hospital, and gave one of them a fist bump. My conservative friends thought this was just totes adorbs.
Meanwhile, I was having flashbacks to the 2008 presidential election when Prez Obama fist-bumped Mrs. Obama, and the news media went fucking nuts and called it a “terrorist fist jab”.
TL;DR:
Black couple running for President give celebratory fist bump; are seen as terrorists and gangstas.
Old white woman gives sick child a fist bump; is seen as adorable and “classy”.
(Yeah, classy.)
Hm.
