Sir Richard Branson apologises after posting photo from launch event in South Africa that only included white people
Richard Branson is criticised over non-diverse photo in South Africa

'Where did you find so many white people in South Africa?' Sir Richard Branson apologises after posing for photo that 'clearly lacked diversity' at launch of entrepreneurship centre

Sir Richard Branson, 69, apologised for posting a photo of an all white group of attendees at his entrepreneurship centre launch in South Africa
Of the 58 million people in the country, 80 per cent identify as black African
A Twitter user asked: 'Where did you find so many white people in South Africa?'

Sir Richard Branson has apologised after he posted a photo to launch his entrepreneurship centre in South Africa which 'clearly lacked diversity'.

Thula Sindi, a South African fashion designer, asked the multi-billionaire on Twitter: 'Where did you find so many white people in South Africa?'

The designer, whose dresses have been worn by South African politicians, added that it must have 'Really taken an honest effort [to] exclude the majority of the population which is just as skilled and talented'.

The image posted yesterday (top) shows an all white group of entrepreneurs standing around the multi-billionaire. Sir Richard quickly drew criticism from Twitter users who said the image failed to show the diversity of the country.

Virgin Group founder Sir Richard Branson poses for a photograph during an announcement at Pitt Street Mall in Sydney on Tuesday. Sir Richard apologised yesterday for posting a photo on Twitter that failed to acknowledge the diversity of South Africa at his entrepreneurship centre

Sir Richard, who was 69 in July, was quick to apologise, admitting that the image failed to illustrate the different ethnicities involved at the centre.

He also directed followers to his blog, which he said did a better job to showcase diversity than the tweet.

The controversial image was accompanied by Sir Richard tweeting: 'Wonderful to be in South Africa to help launch the new Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship. We aim to become the heart of entrepreneurship for Southern Africa.'

Sir Richard soon apologised for the choice of photo which he said 'clearly lacked diversity'

One Twitter user, Sicelo Nkosi, rebuffed Sir Richard's critics, saying that the majority of images show a diverse mix of ethnicities at the entrepreneurship centre.

'Race advocates, I'm on your side but think you got this one wrong', Nkosi said.

'Please open the link before you comment. This is one of many pictures, most of which are diverse.'

A spokesperson for Virgin said: 'The tweet linked to a blog about the launch of the Branson Centre of Entrepreneurship South Africa, which assists aspiring entrepreneurs of all backgrounds with the skills, opportunities and inspiration they need to succeed.

'We apologise for the poorly chosen image, but would like to emphasise that this does not reflect the diverse make-up of attendees.

Some users jumped to Sir Richard's defence. Sicelo Nkosi (top) asked people to click on the link to see the diverse group of people present at the entrepreneurship event. The images on Sir Richard's blog (bottom) were far more inclusive

Sir Richard founded the Virgin Group in the 1970s, which now controls more than 400 companies across the globe. His estimated worth is $4 billion

'As the video, other social posts and other images of the event show, many of the diverse group of Branson Centre entrepreneurs, trustees and team were present and the image attached to that particular tweet should have reflected this too.'

South Africa's population is 80 per cent black African with just 7.8 per cent Caucasian. 8.8 per cent of South Africans are mixed race and 2.5 per cent Indian or Asian.

wtf how is not watching porn antisemitic? And if anything it's the opposite of misogynist, a lot of those girls (and guys, but girls is relevant here) aren't treated that great offset and a good handful of porn popups I've seen are "abuse/rough porn" with a girl crying looking like she's legitimately being raped. You're the misogynist, lady.

I dunno, but the idea that NoFap is not just a silly fad but actively harmful to women/jews/etc has been popping up ever increasingly in the past few years.

Claiming sex as addiction is harmful to gay men, those who are notorious for being addicted to sex? She claims that treating people for sex addiction is harmful? What a huge piece of shit.

Their kvetching over it really does suggest their motives are impure. They've explicitly designated porn as literal weapon for at least 40-50 years. To deny its addictive nature, its ability to warp and pervert libidos, its inherently destructive effects is appalling. And its not just men who suffer from it, its women as well. The number of women I've known who were porn addicts with fucked-up broken sexuality because of it is pretty high.

Why isnt the media filled with feminists cheering on NoFappers? If we actually had an open media that would be the most prevalent headline related to this, as NoFap is a huge victory for feminism.

This sets off every single alarm bell that I honed over the years of GG. For example, she directly tags him and his organization in, as well as the supposed white supremacist website.

She's literally begging people to tell her to fuck off so she can claim being told to fuck off is harassment and a death threat.

Yup. I can remember a time when Feminists HATED porn because it was supposedly anti women.

Now? Don't like porn? YOU WOMAN HATING MONSTER!

What changed? A decade of men dulled into a stupor via unlimited free internet porn, and a new generation of girls going onto streaming services, showing their cleavage, and getting BANK for doing so.

All men are evil, so whatever men are doing at the moment is evil. Nothing changed except the behavior of men. The rule that everything a man ever does is evil stayed completely the same.

This is great news. The oligarch (who is quite a character) who owns the current Ukranian president is advocating for peace with Russia. With a bit of luck there may be peace coming.
As the first day of public impeachment hearings in Washington put a prominent but unflattering spotlight on their nation, Ukrainian politicians were reassessing not only their relationship with the United States but also their ties with Russia.

Speculation about a meeting between Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky and Russian President Vladimir Putin has been mounting, with the former president of Kazakhstan telling an audience this week that the Ukrainian leader asked for his help on setting up a bilateral meeting.

Ukrainian Foreign Minister Vadym Prystaiko, however, said at a news conference in Austria on Thursday that there were no plans for a one-on-one meeting.

“We are planning a Normandy Format summit,” he said, referring to stalled four-way talks involving France, Germany, Russia and Ukraine.

Two days earlier, former Kazakh leader Nursultan Nazarbayev said at a conference in Nur-Sultan that a Zelensky-Putin meeting could be held in Kazakhstan, but the Kremlin responded cautiously to his outreach, warning that “meeting for the sake of meeting would serve little purpose.”

President Trump is among those who appear to favor such a meeting, telling Zelensky when he met him in New York in September that he hoped the Ukrainian leader and Putin could “get together.”

Ukraine has lived under the shadow of its larger neighbor since the fall of the Soviet Union. After a popular uprising in 2014 sent the corrupt and Kremlin-friendly Ukrainian president Viktor Yanukovych into exile, Moscow supported separatists in Ukraine’s eastern regions, including Donbas, resulting in a brutal civil war that has killed more than 13,000 people.

The United States had been a key ally of Kyiv during this conflict, but it had not been an equal partnership. At the impeachment hearings Wednesday, lawmakers and diplomats discussed the Trump administration’s move to delay about $400 million in military aid to Ukraine, which Democrats allege was done to force Kyiv to investigate Joe Biden, a political rival of Trump’s, and his son Hunter Biden.

Acting ambassador to Ukraine William B. Taylor Jr. and Deputy Assistant Secretary of State George Kent, two experts on Ukraine, were repeatedly asked to give their thoughts on the “endemic” corruption in the nation.

Speaking in Austria, Prystaiko said his government had not been told there was a link between the delay in U.S. military aid and investigations allegedly desired by Trump.

“I have never seen a direct link between investigations and security assistance. Yes, investigations were mentioned, you know, in a presidential conversation. But there was no clear connection between these events,” the minister said, according to Interfax Ukraine.

In an interview with BBC Ukrainian on Thursday, Prystaiko said Ukraine doesn’t play a key role in the impeachment inquiry and as such avoids commenting on it.

“The worst thing we can do is become a bargaining chip,” he said. “Unfortunately, we are such a chip now.”

Some Ukrainian political figures have warned that the impeachment hearings only increase the need for rapprochement with Russia. Billionaire Ihor Kolomoisky, a powerful ally of Zelensky, told the New York Times this week he had backed away from his previous opposition to Moscow.

“They’re stronger anyway. We have to improve our relations,” Kolomoisky said. “People want peace, a good life; they don’t want to be at war. And you are forcing us to be at war, and not even giving us the money for it.”

Zelensky, a comedy star who swept to power this year on an anti-corruption platform, has spoken about ending the war in Ukraine’s east. In one sign of a possible detente, the two sides swapped prisoners in September.

But attempts to find a new way to deal with Russia have led to protests in Ukraine, with many arguing one plan favored by the Ukrainian leader — the “Steinmeier Formula,” which calls for elections in separatist-held territories — amounted to a capitulation to Russia.

The Kremlin has repeatedly put off the Normandy Format talks and demanded more concessions from Ukraine. Prystaiko told BBC Ukrainian that he hoped the four-way negotiations, stalled since 2016, could be resumed before the end of the year.

But the extent of Ukrainian government skepticism about Moscow was also spelled out Wednesday in a Facebook post by Defense Minister Andriy Zahorodniuk, who said financial and economic relations with Russia were impossible and Ukraine needed to integrate with NATO.

“Since 2014, I’ve understood that the name of the enemy consists of six letters — Russia,” Zahorodniuk wrote.

So-called modern 'feminism' is just a bald attempt to attack society, is what's changed. Betty Frieden doubtless had a bunch of creepy relatives who consumed a fair bit of the stuff, hence her opposition to it. The modern generation is probably in the same position, but they're wholly without moral values so support it.

wtf how is not watching porn antisemitic? And if anything it's the opposite of misogynist, a lot of those girls (and guys, but girls is relevant here) aren't treated that great offset and a good handful of porn popups I've seen are "abuse/rough porn" with a girl crying looking like she's legitimately being raped.
You could- while I'm not suggesting it- just watch rough sex scenes featuring Jewesses, I suppose. That would seem to qualify.

Oh, don't you know that porn and whoring are the most empowering things any woman can do in this day and age? Forget about being stern, caring or having a clear goal in life. Just take a crapload of dicks while being filmed. Let a bunch of perverts beat their meat to you being jizzed on. I shit you not that most porn actresses end up being the worst kind of feminists because of 2 reasons: First is that all men they have contact in their lives just are there to fuck them, nothing more. And the second is that they usually believe that because they take dicks for a living they know more about interpersonal relationships between men and women than any sort of person, and they think of themselves avobe all those stupid people that want understanding and love.

Also, there is another common pattern among feminist women and that is they are into BDSM, specially on the submissive stuff. Aren't you supposed to get empowered and not spat on and called a whore while you're being facefucked?

Bullied Gay Teen Stands Up For Himself and Becomes Internet's New Hero

A gay teen is receiving an outpouring of support online after standing up to his bully.
Jordan Steffy, a junior at LaPorte High School in Indiana, posted a video to Twitter last week sharing a video of a fight between him and another classmate. Steffy can be heard demanding the other kid stop calling him a faggot, and when the kid doesn’t back down, Steffy starts hitting him.

35.1K people are talking about this



According to Insider, Steffy says he has been bullied ever since he came out in seventh grade. The breaking point came when the classmate he fought with posted something about him on Snapchat.
“He made an anti-gay post with a picture of me on it saying how he hated gays and a bunch of throwing up emojis all over it,” he said. “I walked up to him and said ‘Why did you post this?’ He said ‘It was just a post.’ And I said ‘Well it’s not just a post. It’s a post about me, saying how you dislike who I am, and I don’t appreciate that.’”
Steffy says the classmate kept challenging him, asking him what he was going to do about it, and calling him a faggot to his face. And he just finally realized he had had enough.
While the school suspended both teens for fighting, Twitter took a different stance, praising Steffy for standing up for himself.

The teen reports that his mother is frustrated with how the school handled things and is going to homeschool him for here on out. But with only a year and a half of high school left, Steffy won’t have to wait too long to hopefully move on to a place that’s hopefully far more accepting and with way fewer homophobes. Whereas the bullies are always going to be stuck with themselves.

A lot of feminists are camgirls now because of the easy money. If the NoFap movement gets bigger it'll prob cut into their paycheck and their livelihood will go up in smoke. I mean society going the way it is with the destruction of male/female relationships is a fucking dream to a camgirl whose majority of income comes from men who don't have female companionship at all even though they make a decent amount of money. Of course they'd be against a real fix to the problem these men face.

29 y.o. Louisiana man pretends to be his own r.etarded brother in order to hire care to change his diapers so he can get a stiffy.
Currently charged with "10 counts of sexual battery and human trafficking (labor), and one count of possession of a schedule II controlled dangerous substance."



NOPD: Man pretended to be handicapped to trick home care workers into changing his diaper

rutledge-22rory22-deas.jpg


NEW ORLEANS – A New Orleans man has been arrested for pretending to be handicapped in order to have home health care workers change his adult diaper.

Twenty-nine-year-old Rutledge Deas, who also goes by “Rory,” created multiple social media posts for home health care workers.

Deas would specify in the ads that the services would be for his 18-year-old mentally and physically handicapped brother, “Cory.”

Deas would then pose as “Cory” and pretend to be handicapped while the nurses changed his adult diaper, a process Deas used to “obtain sexual arousal,” according to the Louisiana State Police.

Home healthcare workers became suspicious of the scheme on at least 10 separate occasions.

Deas was arrested at his home without incident and charged with 10 counts of sexual battery and human trafficking (labor), and one count of possession of a schedule II controlled dangerous substance.

The investigation remains ongoing, and additional victims are anticipated.

Anyone suspected of being a victim of Deas is urged to contact LSP Detectives at (504) 310-7000.
