Petition to HBO, Time Warner, Casey Bloys
Get Bill Maher off of HBO - it's more than the N-word
UPDATE: This is much simpler than we're making it. Read more here on why. Last night Bill Maher casually dropped the N-word. And it's time for him to go. We have allowed Bill Maher to make sexist, islamaphobic and "borderline" racist comments before. And we often wind up debating things like political correctness while feeding his massive ego. This is no longer about political correctness and a clear line has been crossed. HBO and Time Warner have to be good corporate citizens and get him off the air. Do not forget that this angry, crotchety entitled man is ALWAYS punching down. When he, while conversing with a fellow white man and elected official, apropos of nothing at all, refers to himself as a "House Nigger" and then chuckles, I think we can agree that the buck has to stop here. In this racially tense, deeply divided, powder keg moment in America, the last thing we need is young people of color hearing a supposed ally casually using the word Nigger and normalizing its use for all white people on a massive media platform. Maher's usage was neither funny, nor was it informative or conversation advancing...it was simply inflammatory and indicative of what Bill Mahler truly is: a culture troll craving conversation. So let's give HBO the conversation that Bill so desperately craves. You know, the one where either Bill gets cancelled or our HBO and cable subscriptions do. See for yourself and then support and share this petition. Tweet it to Casey Bloys, head of HBO programming. Post it on Facebook. Email your entire softball team. This guy has got to go.
Petition to Joe Platania
Demand Joe Platania Drop the Charges Against Corey Long and Donald Blakney
Eight months have passed since August 12th, the day that white supremacists invaded a community and terrorized everyone in their wake. Although many have already forgotten about Charlottesville and it's impact on those who experienced it, marginalized residents have not stopped facing continual trauma from the horrific events that took place. In particular, three black community members in Charlottesville who stood up against Nazis continue to be targeted by the cops and courts for their involvement in showing up against white supremacy. Charlottesville police charged Corey Long, Donald Blakney and Deandre Harris with various outrageous misdemeanors and felonies. The police and courts wanted to paint a narrative that these defenders were threats to public safety. But we weren't buying that. We showed up with signs, chants and bodies on the day of Deandre's trial and made it known to the public that we won't stand idly by while community protectors are forced to relive their trauma and endure the senselessness of the trial process. The courts ultimately found Deandre rightfully not guilty. But in this town, it never ends. Now, two more of our community defenders await trial. But we don't want to rely on the court system to get justice for Donald and Corey- we want the charges dropped now. Joe Platania, the Commonwealth's Attorney, has the ability to drop the charges and not persue the case. So why won't he? Sign this petition to let Joe Platania know Corey Long did NOTHING wrong. Donald Blakney is a community hero. Urge Joe Platania to drop these senseless charges now. Every show of support for these community defenders counts. There will be no peace without justice. Fighting white supremacy is not a crime.And justice for Corey and Donald comes when Joe Platania agrees to drop the charges. #CoreyLongDidNothingWrong #DropEmCville
Petition to Huffington Post, Arianna Huffington, Chloe Angyal
Oust Chloe Angyal as a White Feminist
Chloe Angyal, the Deputy Opinion Editor at HuffPost, has continued to claim to be for improving diversity, but she fails to see the errs of her white feminism. Her failure to give up her position to someone from a marginalized community is exactly what is wrong with white feminism and contributes to the wage gap between different races. More minorities need to be given senior positions to fix the issues in society and I think it should start with the white women that fail to see their own hypocrisy. I am calling for her to resign from her position and give it up to someone highly qualified from a marginalized community.

Ban the eggplant emoji as it is a sign of female oppression and promotes rape culture.

Obviously it's a sign of the patriarchy, and its only inherent value is to oppress women.This can't be aloud to continue, Imagine all the women traumatized by the intellectual rape that takes place. We can't allow this harassment to continue. We need to act now so other women don't get intellectually violated.Facebook and other platforms need to remove this emoji. It is a violent symbol whose only purpose is to oppress and violate women
