Spacecism: When Racists Don’t Even Want Minorities In Fictional Outer Space

Published

Racist

Do you know how goddamn BIG space is?! SPACE! Just think about it for a second and if you can’t wrap your mind around the size of what seems like infinity, have a look at this video.

Are you back? Good. Now scoop up what’s left of your brain after watching that mind blowing shit and answer one question for me… how racist do you have to be to not even want minorities in outer space?! And FICTIONAL outer space at that!

1445390769193Unless you’ve been in the stomach of a Sarlacc for the past few days, you’ve probably already seen the third and final trailer for Star Wars: The Force Awakens, but not everyone is happy about it.

Claiming that J.J. Abrams (who is Jewish) imagining of the Star Wars universe is promoting “anti-white propaganda” and “white genocide,” a few people (I’m guessing about 3) got the hashtag #BoycottStarWarsVII trending on social media in an attempt to garner support to NOT support the upcoming film. Apparently these 3 neo-nazi nerds were offended that none of the films protagonist are a 6 foot 5, ivory skinned, blond haired, blue eyed Adonis. Given the record breaking pre-release ticket sales, it looks like they’ve failed.

To add insult to injury, most of the Twitter universe took their fair share of jabs at the overtly racist overtones of the hashtag making a mockery of it and the people that started it. You can read more by clicking the link below.

Thought provoking, inspiring, witty, charming, charismatic and handsome. None of these terms have ever been used to describe Richard Sean Airy. Instead, he is a fat, cat owning, water head having, Krispy Kreme eating son of a B!#$% whose ego is as wide as it is tall. If you like biting sarcasm, cringe worthy puns and a whole lot of cynicism on the side then this Dick will be right up your alley. @dickseanairy on Twitter

What the NFT is a BEEPLE?

Published

on

On March 11 this year, the digital artist Beeple sold a collage of digital images from his “Everydays” series for nearly 70 million dollars as an NFT, or non-fungible token. And if that sentence confuses you, you’re not alone.

A non-fungible token is a unit of data on a digital ledger called a blockchain, where each NFT can represent a unique digital item, and thus they are not interchangeable. NFTs can represent digital files such as art, audio, video, and other forms of creative work. While the digital files themselves are infinitely reproducible, the NFTs representing them are tracked on their underlying blockchains and provide buyers with proof of ownership.” – Wikipedia

Still confused? Let the artist himself explain it, and learn how he went from NFT newbie to making the third most expensive artwork by a living artist in three months. Not to suggest Beeple is an overnight success. The “Everydays” series alone involved creating a piece of art every day since May 1, 2007 – and he hasn’t missed a day.

Check out some of Beeple’s amazing and controversial work below.
