Just Carl

A 27 year old Irish guy living in America with too much to say and not enough people to listen.

Anonymous said: What's wrong with you?

I’m not sure if that’s a general question or if you’re enquiring about my health. Let’s assume the latter. 

I was a bit feverish yesterday and now again today, and just feel tired and shitty. I tend not to get sick often, but when I do I’m a mess, so instead of taking a chance I’m staying home and playing lame. 

The important thing is that I still have my appetite. I only ever go to the doctor when that goes. Not because it’s a bad symptom, but because food. 

Not feeling any better today, so it will indeed be a long weekend of movies and games. 

Who’s with me?

I’m 20 years late, but holy shit The X-Files is awesome.

UNDER CONSTRUCTION

Feel like shit today. I think this is the first time I’ve been feverish since moving to California, and that mixed with blistering temperature outside has me in a heap.

Taking a day to myself tomorrow, so bought part two of The Walking Dead game (on sale, only $10) to keep myself distracted. 

On the subject of games, I’ve been thinking about asking what games you guys play, and now seems as good a time as any. Leave me a list of what you enjoy, and if I have any (or interest in getting any) on your list, we can maybe play together sometime. 

My current go-to games are DayZ, Diablo 3, and Civ 5. 

What’s your poison?

I think people would respect me more if they knew about all the charitable things I pretend to have done.

Experiment

I’ve changed my tumblr bookmark to tumblr.com/blog/justcarl

What this means is simple: all I see when I click into tumblr now is what I post myself. For the next… I don’t know how long… there will be nothing on my dash to complain about, nothing that makes me want to quit this hellhole of a place that makes shitty people worse and good people shitty. It’s just me now. 

The only way this impacts you is that I won’t see your posts, and therefore won’t be able to like, comment on, or reblog anything. Big whoop, like you noticed. 

It also means everything I post will have to be original content, or at least content I share from other places that hasn’t just popped up on my dash and was convenient to share. 

Another impact it’ll have on me is that I will not be in any way influenced by tides of opinions on tumblr. Whether it’s me hopping aboard a tumblr bandwagon, or trying to hijack it and trying to kill all on board, that tends to be the main aspect of my tumblr right now, which I don’t like. It’s needless. 

I will still see likes, comments, and reblogs that you guys give, and will still respond to those (as well as messages in my ask box and fan mail), but that will pretty much be it. 

Basically, any interaction between you and I will have to be started by you. I won’t come to you any more. 

Depending on how this works, this is either the first step in my deleting my tumblr, or actually enjoying it again. It’s 50:50 right now. 

Either way, have a day.

The Violent Xenophobic Racism in Ireland

At 9pm last Tuesday, 44-year-old Chinese doctor, Wu Youzhong, went to investigate the sound of breaking glass outside his home in Coleraine, County Londonderry, in Ireland. When he arrived at his front door, he saw that the window had been smashed. An intruder then attacked him so violently that he had to be admitted to hospital for several days, and required consultation from an eye specialist. Dr Wu’s wife, Luo Ruoyin, said, “I heard he was just screaming in pain and I was scared. He was just holding his head and covering his eyes and blood was just running down everywhere.” The police are treating the attack as racially motivated; the couple, who have a two-year-old daughter, are reported to be intending to move away from the area.

The Chinese community in Ireland has long been a target of racial discrimination. Anna Lo, an Alliance Party politician born in Hong Kong who was elected to the Ireland Assembly in 2007, was the first politician from an ethnic minority at national level in Ireland, as well as the first East Asian to be elected anywhere in Britain. Her campaign was dogged by violent racism – including death threats – to the extent that she had to carry a panic alarm as a precaution. One far-Right website published pornographic images of Chinese women, alongside derogatory references to Anna Lo. “People from ethnic minorities are very frightened,” she said. “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland.”

the crumbling myth of white supremacy. white supremacy is violent. white supremacy is destructive. white supremacy is pervasive. white supremacy kills.

Tell me again how the Irish are victims of racism….

Hey everybody look! The existence of a small group of racists up in Northern Ireland (who don’t even consider themselves Irish) has wiped out the entire history of the island. Irish are no longer victims of racism! Hurrah!

Fucking hell. Even the fucking given article gives a massive hint: “I have never seen ethnic minorities so fearful in Ireland” - because this isn’t something that’s considered the norm in Ireland, its new, and it’s not being tolerated, not even remotely. We have fucking police squads dedicated to protecting areas that are potentially threatened by the tiny minority of scumbags who do this, we pay top money to produce housing for foreign nationals, we have more programs that you can shake a stick at to integrate, educate, and welcome people from all over Africa.

But yeah, a few photos are more important, we’re now officially the island of KKK headquarters. 

Jesus Christ. If one post could highlight the problems with this website I was talking about earlier, here it fucking is. 

The post also just plucked pictures of injured black kids and lied about them being from Ireland. http://www.birminghammail.co.uk/news/local-news/kyle-sheehans-friend-beaten-up-5042

I swear, I’m done with this site.
