When You Confuse 1 Canadian Dude With 180,000 Hispanic People, You Might Be Kinda Sorta Racist

So, a certain U.S. Supreme Court justice recently and despicably suggested that keeping Martin Luther King Jr.'s hard-won Voting Rights Act around would amount to "racial entitlement." The guy who made this video researches election theft for a living and knows why that justice is wrong — and maybe a wee bit racist, too.

At 0:37, we learn Karl Rove doesn't like people who wear sunglasses. It's pretty sunny in Alabama, though.
At 1:51, it turns out the narrator is on a first-name basis with MLK.
At 2:51, we meet a nice guy who the State randomly decided couldn't vote.
At 3:34, Mr. Palast blows Justice Scalia's mind by suggesting that voter discrimination can happen even if it's not essentially about race.
At 4:38, you'll agree that the difference between 180,000 and "almost 100" is a pretty conspicuous discrepancy.
At 5:50, we learn what's at stake. And while you might think that it makes perfect sense that more Hispanic people would be suspected of voting illegally, what with the immigration thing and all, at 6:20, you'll know how wrong you are.
At 7:18, a woman in prison stripes knows her rights.
At 9:10, you'll learn what the state of California considers to be an "unusual name." Guess which radical, socialist, racial-entitlement-promoting president did something about it.
At 12:28, everyone breaks into song.

Brace yourselves, folks, because this is almost too friggin' adorable to handle.

A 911 call can be a scary thing, and an emergency call from a dad having chest pains and trouble breathing is no exception. But thankfully, an exchange between that dad's 5-year-old daughter and 911 dispatcher Jason Bonham turned out to be more humor than horror. If you missed hearing the recording that has repeatedly gone viral since 2010, you have to hear it now. It's perfectly timeless.

Twitter user Matt, who goes by the name @SixthFormPoet, shared a dark love story on Twitter that's been read by nearly 600,000 people. It starts in a graveyard and feels like it could be the premise for a Tim Burton film.

While it's hard to verify whether the story is true, Matt insists that it's real, so we'll believe him.

Can the teens do literally anything without being blasted? Apparently not...

Katie Cornetti and Marissa Bordas, two Pittsburgh teens, were involved in a car crash. After taking a sharp turn on a winding road, the car flipped twice, then landed on its side. The girls said later on that they weren't on their phones at the time. The cause of the crash was because the tires on Bordas' car were mounted improperly.

The girls were wearing their seatbelts and were fine, aside from a few bruises. However, they were trapped in the car for about 20 minutes, so to pass the time while they waited for help, they decided to make a TikTok video. They made sure they were totally fine before they started recording.

Approximately 10% of the population is left-handed, and the balance between lefties and righties has been the same for almost 5,000 years. People used to believe that left-handed people were evil or unlucky. The word "sinister" is even derived from the Latin word for "left."

In modern times, the bias against lefties for being different is more benign – spiral notebooks are a torture device, and ink gets on their hands like a scarlet letter. Now, a new study conducted at the University of Oxford and published in Brain is giving left-handers some good news. While left-handers have been struggling with tools meant for right-handers all these years, it turns out, they actually possess superior verbal skills.

Researchers looked at the DNA of 400,000 people in the U.K. from a volunteer bank. Of those 400,000 people, 38,332 were southpaws. Scientists were able to find the differences in genes between lefties and righties, and that these genetic variants resulted in a difference in brain structure, too. "It tells us for the first time that handedness has a genetic component," Gwenaëlle Douaud, joint senior author of the study and a fellow at Oxford's Wellcome Centre for Integrative Neuroimaging, told the BBC.
