    do not let white academia fool you into thinking that

    • the greatest authors that were and ever will be are white men
    • every great philosopher came out of europe
    • mathematics and science were at their highest point when used by white men
    • the most beautiful city in the world is paris
    • colonialism was a golden age
    • europe is the pinnacle of civilization

    Playwrights

    Massachusetts State Police Issue Apology for “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” Bumper Sticker, But Not Before Lying About It

    Massachusetts State Police issued an apology Monday for a bumper sticker on one of their police cruisers that read: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives,” but not before lying about it.

    Boston resident Chris Kantos, was walking Sunday morning and came across on official police cruiser, number 1183, and noticed an odd bumper sticker on it.

    Kantos tweeted this image out immediately.

    Instead of apologizing immediately, Boston PD removed the sticker and published a second image of the cruiser with no bumper sticker. Then accused Kantos of photoshopping the image.

    “Why on earth would I photoshop something like that?” Kantos asked on Twitter.
