21 Instagram Photos from the Hong Kong Protests That China Doesn't Want You to See

BY TIMOTHY MCGRATH / GlobalPost

China just blocked Instagram. Here's what they're hiding.

HkInstagram is down in China, and if you've been following the news, you already know why.

Tens of thousands of protesters have taken to the streets in Hong Kong in an outpouring of frustration over politics and representation. Under Hong Kong's present electoral system, citizens don't elect their own leaders. Instead, they're appointed by a Beijing-friendly electoral committee. That will change — sort of, but not really — in 2017, when Hong Kong citizens will get to choose from among two or three candidates pre-selected by a Beijing nominating committee.

Protesters call the new electoral system "fake democracy." Sounds about right.

As we've come to expect, social media has played a large part in getting the word out. On Twitter and Instagram, activists and sympathizers use a variety of hashtags to organize information and speak to the wider world. If you want to follow along, check out #OccupyCenter, #hongkong, #hk and #UmbrellaRevolution. The last one refers to protesters' creative use of umbrellas to defend against tear gas. Ten years from now, it might be the name we remember this demonstration by.

Beijing's not having any of it. Following a police crackdown in Hong Kong on Sunday, Chinese authorities struck a major blow against demonstrators' ability to transmit news and images of the protest via social networks. They blocked Instagram on the Chinese mainland.

What's Beijing so afraid of?

Here are 21 photos from Instagram users on the ground at the protests. China doesn't want you to see them. And if you live in China, you can't.

Republican Jacob Dorsey Drops Out Of Race For Wisconsin Assembly Following More Homophobic, Racist Comments

Jacob Dorsey, the 19-year-old Republican candidate for Wisconsin State Assembly, has dropped out of the race after racist and homophobic comments he had made on Twitter and YouTube surfaced, reports LGBTQ Nation.

On Monday we reported that Dorsey was facing a backlash following a tweet sent last December that contained a homophobic slur.

The tweet, which has since been deleted, read: Acob dorsey yourtube comment1

“10th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals rejects #Utah’s request to stop same-sex marriages.” fags need 2 leave my favorite state alone.”

In a statement, Dorsey had apologised for the tweet and said “I regret using unacceptable and hurtful language on social media last year. I am a staunch supporter of traditional marriage, but the language I used is not in keeping with my character, family values and Christian upbringing.”

However, yesterday NOManiacs, a group that exposes hate speech, reported that Dorsey had posted further racist and homophobic comments on YouTube. The comments were posted to Dorsey’s since deleted “jdorsey1995″ YouTube channel, the same account name he used for Twitter and Instagram.

Dorsey - a former intern with Citizens for Decency who has been endorsed by Pro-Life Wisconsin and Wisconsin Right To Life - yesterday told the The Janesville Gazette that he had “decided to withdraw from the race due to insensitive remarks that have surfaced from years past. This race has been extremely hard on my family and myself.” Acob dorsey yourtube comment2

On Dorsey's resignation, NOManiacs said:

"We hope Jacob Dorsey truly regrets his posts. America needs leaders at all levels who champion diversity and are committed to represent all. Dorsey was not yet that person."


Snoop Dogg Sends Homophobic Tweet, Quickly Deletes It, Still Gets Caught

SnoopDogg

Rapper Snoop Dogg was caught in a homophobic snare early this morning after tweeting a gay slur about an Instagram user. The tweet used the language of "f.A.G." and told the Instagram user, whose picture Snoop Dogg had reposted on his own Instagram account (see below), "bitch boy go suck ya man n get off my line." Buzzfeed reports that the post, comment, and tweet were deleted soon after they were posted, around 1am.

Comments from Snoop Dogg's Instagram followers were telling as well. One user threatened "I got screenshots on my page" while another threw in support, writing "Keep It Gangsta Snoop dez Fags talk tooo much." At the time the screenshot above was taken, nearly 9000 Instagram users had liked the post.

Snoop Dogg previously theorized that it may never be acceptable to be gay in the rap industry, but claimed, "I got some gay homies." What would they think about this incident, Snoop? 

No comment has been made by Snoop Dogg or his representation.
