Earl Sampson, is filing racial profiling charges against the Miami Gardens Police Department. For the last 4 years at least one time a week Earl has been stopped by Miami Gardens police, as a result he has been questioned at least 258 times, searched over 100 times, and arrested 62 times with a majority of the citations taking place at the store he is employed at!

This case goes to show that the police presence in the black community isn’t there to protect and serve, it’s there to harass and arrest. It’s a common trend for police to harass Black Men daily because we are viewed as a threat since childhood. You don’t really hear many cases of racial profiling happening to White men. Actually when they compare Racial profiling cases between Black Men and White Men, the numbers will show you that Black Men are HIGHLY likely to be racially targeted by the police more than anyone else.

"How can you be so poor and have all this stuff?" -Bill O’Reilly

Each of these screenshots is from a different Fox show attacking poor Americans for having amenities, trying to make the point (pretty much) that “when I was a kid, poor people had a lot less than this.”

Of course, this is all based on one thoroughly-debunked Heritage Foundation report that conservative media have been parroting for years.

Breaking news for Fox: We’re not in the 1950’s anymore. As technology advances, each year older technology gets less and less expensive, and therefore more working class Americans are able to access it. 

Matt Yglesias elaborates

A serious person would follow this up with a discussion of relative prices. Over the past 50 years, televisions have gotten a lot cheaper and college has gotten a lot more expensive. Consequently, even a low income person can reliably obtain a level of television-based entertainment that would blow the mind of a millionaire from 1961. At the same time, if you’re looking to live in a safe neighborhood with good public schools in a metropolitan area with decent job opportunities you’re going to find that this is quite expensive. Health care has become incredibly expensive. The federal poverty line for a family of three is $18,530 a year. I wonder how many Heritage Foundation policy analysts are deciding they want to cut back and work part time because it’d be super easy to raise two kids in DC on less than $20k in salary? Perhaps just an outfit full of workaholics.

While Fox is so busy pointing out how many people have access to microwaves and refrigerators, they conveniently forget to mention how many people have poor access to quality education, health care, and affordable housing. Because really, what good is an A/C if you can’t even afford to keep living in your house?
