Hurricane Harvey devastated Texas and stranded countless people in their homes after Texans saw 40 inches of rainfall over the course of the weekend. Hurricane Harvey first touched down on Friday night as a Category 4 Hurricane, with winds of 130 miles per hour. Five people have been killed, and many more are injured or trapped. You may be feeling helpless, but there are ways you can help — espeically if you're close to the affected area. But if you happen to be far away,...
The United States of America’s charge — from the 53% of white women and the majority of non-college educated white men who voted him in — is to reconstruct the methodology of colonialism in America, in such a way that it becomes more comfortable to tombstone the truth before the body has been given a proper viewing and eulogy. Choosing to ignore the gray elephant that is hate that sits in America’s living rooms isn’t some new form of racism. It’s the unfortunate same pile of...
  Last night, Trump held a “campaign rally” (Why? He’s already president) in Phoenix, Arizona, during which he ranted for 77 minutes on his usual topics, including crowd size, “fake news," and building a wall, as well as his response to the white supremacist violence in Charlottesville. CNN writes: In what amounted to a 77-minute presidential therapy session in front of thousands of supporters, Trump pulled out copies of three of his own speeches and rehashed what he'd said about white supremacists' gathering around a Robert E. Lee...
    This weekend, white supremacists swarmed Charlottesville, Virginia, for a “Unite the Right” rally, a response to a proposal to remove a local statue of Confederate leader Robert E. Lee. The white supremacists used violence against anti-racists protesters, killing one woman, Heather Heyer, and injuring at least 34 others. It’s horrifying, and it’s evidence of the growth of the white supremacist movement in the United States. BUST’s “digital team” is one white woman (hi) working part time with a few interns helping out, and my voice...
Conquer Or Die For over a century, an army of fierce female soldiers redefined what it meant to be a warrior and struck fear into the hearts of all their adversaries. BY JOHANNA GOHMANN Imagine the most terrifying, capable, badass woman you know. Now, imagine thousands of other women just like her, give them all machetes, and you’re starting to get an idea of what a fearful force the Dahomey Amazon warriors must have been. Never heard of them? Well, buckle up. Because once you learn about these...
Bill Cosby “wants to get back to work,” said his spokesman, Andrew Wyatt, on WBRC’s “Good Day Alabama,” and his upcoming project - a series of talks about avoiding sexual assault accusations - has most of us saying, “ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?” Wyatt elaborated, “This issue can affect any young person - especially young athletes of today, and they need to know what they are facing when they are hanging out and partying, when they are doing certain things they shouldn’t be doing.” Wyatt said...
The latest video from Cut’s “Strange Buds” YouTube series involves actress Aubrey Plaza smoking marijuana with the Sisters of the Valley, better known as “the Weed Nuns.” It was the perfect setting and topic for such a video, considering that Plaza, who smokes, is one the stars of the upcoming convent-set comedy film, The Little Hours. “I see you – I mean I have guilt because I’m Catholic,” says Plaza to Sisters Kate and Evie, five minutes after she takes her first hit of the provided...
Though the next Summer Olympics are a long time away to even think about (more than 1,130 days, but who’s counting?), groundbreaking news continues to be released in preparation for the journey to Japan. The Executive Board of the International Olympic Committee (IOC) recently announced that it intends to have more women partaking in the Tokyo 2020 Games. In an effort to reach a 50% gender balance at the Olympic Games in both athletes and events, the IOC plans to have 48.8% of women participate, according...
Eric Trump, Donald Trump’s slimy son, created a media shitstorm after calling his father’s critics “not even people” on Fox News’s Hannity last night. Regarding the President’s detractors, he declared, “I’ve never seen hatred like this. And to me, they’re not even people. It’s so, so sad. Morality is just gone. Morals have just flown out the window, and we deserve so much better than this as a country.” Eric Trump’s ability to dehumanize those that are different than him is a tactic that President Trump...
