District Six Supervisor Jane Kim on “White Privilege” – Your 15-Second, Out-Of-Context YouTube Video of the Day

Wednesday, July 25th, 2012

Here it is:

Oh, the transcripts are in:

“There is a privilege to being white in this country. I’m not saying that if you’re white, you have a lot of power as an individual. But if you’re white, you might be more likely to find* a white President,** a white Senator, a white police chief. I mean I’m just saying, right?” 

Have you been to college? This is exactly what it’s like.

I mean I’m just saying, right?

*No comprendo. Do not copy. Repeat transmission, Good Buddy. So if “you” aren’t white, then you’re less likely to find a white…

**Or half-white.***

***I mean, I’m just saying, right?

UPDATE, from the Comments section – Twitter, Randy Shaw, the non-profit mafia, etc:

“sorry bout that, it seems out of context, but she actually wasn’t even asked about race, but rather gender relations…she brought up the race issue all by herself, – out of context

here’s the wider clip with the context:

you might even find this even more strange, actually…but that’s still not the whole thing…the whole thing is 55 minutes long and it was a meeting at one of randy Shaws hotels, the hartland…in fact, it appears there’s quite a bit of questionable stuff in there, especially about the corrupt twitterloin tax break

two more clips:

notice how one of Randy Shaws clients specifically says that it’s ‘unfair to put people that are just homeless into a hotel like that full of heroin addicts, meth addicts and crackheads’ and how THC staff and Jane Kim completely sidesteps the question and takes it to another context:

the tax breaks, including twitter:

it goes on..I’m working on a post myself and making clips…It really looks like the entire mid market tax break is an inside job, controlled by a tiny few non profits

this could really blow up…did she not know she was being taped, with a camera right in her face?”

Oh Man, If the SFPD Has This Kind of Photo of You Robbing Banks, It’s Time to Leave Town

Wednesday, April 7th, 2010

I’ll tell you, I worked at a bank back in the day, back in the pre-digital camera era, and I’ll tell you, there’s no way a typical analog camera would get this kind of image of an alleged bank robber. Particularly since the old-school cams had to be tripped manually when the time came, owing to the expense of film.

But these days, digital cameras is everywhere.

Anyway, if I were this fellow, I’d leave town, for a while anyway.

All the deets straight from the SFPD FB:

SAN FRANCISCO POLICE SEEK PUBLIC’S HELP IN LOCATING SERIAL BANK ROBBERY SUSPECT (10-039) 

San Francisco police are seeking the public’s help in locating a bank robbery suspect who has robbed four downtown San Francisco banks since March 22. In three of the incidents, the suspect approached a bank customer already at the teller window and placed a knife to the customer’s throat. While holding the knife, the suspect demanded and was given currency from the teller. The suspect then fled the bank. In one of the three incidents, the hostage victim suffered a non-life-threatening knife wound.

The first incident on March 22 occurred at Citibank, 1801 Van Ness Avenue. There was no customer threat or weapon used in this incident. Two days later, on March 24, the suspect entered the East West Bank at 743 Washington Street and held a knife to the throat of an Asian male customer at the teller window. On April 2, the suspect went into the Wells Fargo Bank at 1160 Grant Avenue and again held a knife to the throat of a customer, an Asian male. This was the incident in which the customer was injured.

On April 5, the suspect entered City National Bank, 150 California Street, stood behind a 90-year-old Hispanic female customer at the teller window, and held a knife to her throat. After demanding and receiving currency, the suspect fled the bank. The victim was not injured.

The suspect is described as an African-American male, 30-40, 6’, 175 lbs, black hair with mustache and goatee. The suspect wore a dark baseball cap in each incident. Surveillance photos of the suspect accompany this press release.

Anyone with information regarding the suspect is urged to contact Inspector Phillip Wong, Criminal Investigation Unit, 553-1201, to call the Confidential Tip Line, 415-575-4444, or to use Text-a-Tip by typing TIP411 or 847411 in the “To” field and “SFPD” in the text field.

Another “Illegal” Movie Ad Campaign from Sony? “District 9″ Posters in District 5

Tuesday, June 2nd, 2009

Right: 

District 9 is an upcoming science fiction film directed by Neill Blomkamp, set for an August 14, 2009 release date.”

Fair enough, but what’s up with all these viral campaign posters just put up in San Francisco Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi‘s District 5 on Haight Steet in the Lower Haight?

Are these things kosher? I mean, didn’t the Rincon Hill blog just drop the hammer on Sony last week for temporary chalk Angels and Demons sidewalk stencil “grafitti.” Didn’t Sony just apologize to City Attorney Dennis Jose Herrera?

Are stickers a kind of graffiti as well?

Did Sony pay a fee for this? (Doubt it.) Can I advertise my business for free on these poles too?
