Oh shit, I guess racist-types are upset at the new Star Wars for not being white enough which is particularly funny because the saga has consistently featured a great number of alien and robot leads.

I also heard some conspiracy theory about this being a new kind of edgy marketing whereby people are enticed to watch the show in order to make a statement to this or that unpopular group (MRAs for Fury Road and racists for Star Wars).

Seems kinda silly - as if these types don't consistently make asses of themselves in public. (?)

I heard it was Stalinists who split from Socialist Action.

USA, Canada or UK?

Thinking of splitting? Need a new banner for the writhing mass of the working class to rally behind? As revolutionary statisticians, we are certain not every permutation has been attempted. So, click the hammer & sickle! Maybe your vanguard will have more luck as...

Sometimes I read the advice columnist for Slate, "Dear Prudie." Less for the putatively sage advice she imparts and more for the powerful snark issuing forth from the comments.

Anyways, this question from today takes the cake for classist miserliness:

"Dear Prudence,

I live in one of the wealthiest neighborhoods in the country, but on one of the more “modest” streets—mostly doctors and lawyers and family business owners. (A few blocks away are billionaires, families with famous last names, media moguls, etc.) I have noticed that on Halloween, what seems like 75 percent of the trick-or-treaters are clearly not from this neighborhood. Kids arrive in overflowing cars from less fortunate areas. I feel this is inappropriate. Halloween isn’t a social service or a charity in which I have to buy candy for less fortunate children. Obviously this makes me feel like a terrible person, because what’s the big deal about making less fortunate kids happy on a holiday? But it just bugs me, because we already pay more than enough taxes toward actual social services. Should Halloween be a neighborhood activity, or is it legitimately a free-for-all in which people hunt down the best candy grounds for their kids?

—Halloween for the 99 Percent"

Gratifyingly, Prudence and the commenters mocked her sufficiently.

someone from libcom said that Worker’s Spatula is run by Stalinists, is that true?

Worker's Spatula

Please choose whichever answer is most useful to class struggle:
1) Different elements behind WS have different views on Comrade Stalin, but it is true that our enemies consider all of us “Stalinists”. Of course, there is no such thing as “Stalinism”, there is only the science of Marxism-Leninism.
2) “If WS was run by Stalinists, you would not be allowed to ask that question.” -Recep Tayyip Erdoğan
3) Everything you have ever read on libcom is true.
4) All of the above.

Not sure if this falls under 'funny' or feeding your class hatred.

I don't eat yogurt but if I did I wouldn't go near Trotsky's - I'll bet it plain unflavoured, austere muck. Now, This guys yogurt is some rare shit. Plus you get a pony.
