The new age section of self-help is the worst about this. Pretty much anything that involves intuition, energetics, releasing and so on, is just a subtle form of emotional masturbation and will, with time, turn you into one of these free-spirited, benevolent narcissists who totally means well but is insufferable to be around for more than 12 seconds. Especially if you bring hydroponic pot and bongo drums with you.

i just want to adore someone and want to show them off to everybody
this is a war-cry from 60 years ago that is still being shouted today.
About those race riots that were supposed to happen following the Zimmerman verdict …
"The worst race riot in US history happened in Tulsa in 1921 when an angry white mob completely destroyed America’s wealthiest African American community, killed 300, and left more than 10,000 homeless."
This was originally posted a year ago by tumblogger socialismartnature after the acquittal of George Zimmerman in Sanford, Florida
Corporate media, seemingly always working closely with the police, stoked racial fears of riots by invoking the stereotypical images of unreasonably angry Black people. And remember…Zimmerman walked free after murdering an innocent 17 year old UNARMED Black teen, Trayvon Martin, who was minding his own business, walking home in the rain
Fast forward to today. The Ferguson PD, the FBI and the National Guard are obstensibly preparing for another “riot” because everyone with eyes has already seen completely through the sham grand jury “investigation" being conducted by Bob McCulloch that will excuse yet another white man for murdering an 18 year old UNARMED Black teen, who again, was walking along and minding his own business
Did you know that according the New York Times 87% of mass shootings in America are committed by Caucasian males between the ages of 13 to 56, yet White Americans tend to be fearful of young black males in hoodies. (h/t curvesincolor)
There is this thing called projection — it’s when someone takes their own ideas, feelings, tendencies or attitudes and then attribute (project) them onto *other* people; especially the externalization of blame, guilt, or responsibility.
So you understand why it strikes me as a particularly sick joke that after executing an innocent UNARMED Black teen, and after two weeks of tear gassing the UNARMED Black protesters in Ferguson, and even after arresting dozens and dozens of Ferguson protesters simply because they excercised their constitutionally protected right to assemble or gather peacefully…after all of this, the alleged “reason” for preparing for massive riots is that the overwhelmingly white police force claims to be afraid of a demonstratedly peaceful and UNARMED Black populace that is guilty only of being Black and being repeatedly preyed upon and terrorized by their local police
Are you noticing a pattern?
1. shoot, choke or otherwise murder UNARMED Black people for literally any reason,
2. then say the cops feared for their safety (from UNARMED Black persons)
3. then teargas, arrest and attack Black people again if they even dare to protest
4. and *then* say that law enforcement needs to prepare for riots and over police even more, because for some unknown reason, Black people might be upset
Law enforcement authorities are willing to spend millions and millions of taxpayer dollars to activate the national guard and to enlist FBI against Ferguson’s residents…they are willing to do all of this in the name of protecting a single white man, Darren Wilson, who murdered an unarmed Black teen, Mike Brown, who had his hands up
