This white man really said his reason for beating up this Black woman is that he thought she was a prostitute, as if that makes it fine. He says it so casually, like beating up a sex worker is justifiable. She’s a domestic worker going to work to clean homes and this asshole jumps out of his car to beat her up. This man saw a Black woman in his neighborhood and flew into a rage. Her mere existence put him over the edge. Despite beating the poor woman up, this guy thinks he’s the one being victimized because he’s white. That’s a synopsis of race relations in a nutshell.

"I admit to beating up a woman, but  it’s ok because I thought was a prostitute. Well, she’s probably lying about being hurt because she’s Black. Why do so many people think I’m a monster?"

Has anyone else noticed that February 2015 is the perfect month?

This is why I never mess with fandoms. I’ll watch and enjoy a show, but fandoms are fucking toxic. They invariably become a breeding ground for the kinds of bitter people who loudly resent “SJWs” because damn near every community large enough will inevitably reach a critical mass of those assholes…

There’s actually a bunch of shows that friends of mine have recommended to me very highly, that sound like the kind of things I’d be into, but the I encountered the fandoms first and they’re intensely and incredibly toxic. So I just NOPE away, not wanting to get involved in that AT ALL.

Which is like the total opposite of what fandom should be, what fandom CAN be. It’s really depressing.

The baton then passed to Don McGregor, who talked about his time working on Black Panther, saying that writing an all black cast was controversial at the time. “People kept asking, where are the white people? So I had the Panther fight the Ku Klux Klan.”

This is a good reason to always carry sidewalk chalk in the car.

"I’m so mad about this I’m gonna sidewalk chalk about it," is an impulse that speaks to me.

"At Rio Americano High School in Sacramento CA, a student named Dejza, was violently assaulted by a vice principal, Matt Collier, for attempting to take back a piece of art with a political message that the administration didn’t like. She was put in a chokehold and slammed against the desk. When she tried to resist this unlawful abuse of authority, she was slammed and held onto the ground. Matt Collier laid on top of her, crushing her with his weight. Dejza could not breathe, and begged Collier to get off of her. Luckily, another faculty member came in and ended the situation. Dejza went to see a doctor for severe whiplash, and yesterday was her first day of physical therapy. Despite this being blatantly wrong and illegal, the administration has put her on suspension for resisting, and Collier was not disciplined. On the fifth day of her suspension, she will attend a meeting held by bias members of the administration to determine if she will be expelled.

They have tried to silence anyone who speaks out on social media, but today we have gathered in person for a silent sit-in protest.

Dejza has been wronged, and brutalized, and now she is receiving punishment. They’ve tried to silence her. They’ve tried to silence us.” -Grant Wright 

One of my friends Grant posted this on facebook and even though im not in Sacramento I want to help. This girl has been mistreated by a full grown man who may never be punished. I want to help spread awareness. So please, spread this around. Let people know that this is NOT okay. The more support we have, the better. 

i’m so proud to have been a part of this today but you guys please please please please reblog/spread this around any way you possibly can it’s so important and her story needs to be heard by people outside of our city because what this man did is so so so incredibly far from okay

arrest Matt Collier. protect and redeem Dejza.

This is so incredible. This post was at 14,000-something notes less than a minute ago and now it’s reached over 15,200. I think I speak on the behalf of all of our student body at Rio Americano when I say can’t begin to explain how grateful I am for each and every person who helped spread the word about this.

also, if you have a twitter, you can follow/retweet

to read the full story and spread the word further. Thanks so much ❤️

like obviously i cant tell you what to do but like if you find yourself thinking “hm maybe i should dedicate a significant portion of my time and energy using blizzard’s official models to create numerous depictions of extreme sexual violence against women and then profit off of this absolute bullshit by exploiting a crowdfunding site. this is a fantastic idea” then i implore you to fucking stop and perhaps do something constructive and not terrible w/ ur life

I cannot believe Curvy Kate’s audacity to outright steal the work of a high school student for some insipid marketing message.

designing and animating a diverse cast of women is hard

translation: we’re afraid to make women look different and “ugly” by giving them emotions that aren’t cutesy and cuddly because that would give people the idea that they’re human and not dolls to sell for Disney profit

I FEEL LIKE PEOPLE ON TUMBLR NEED TO REMEMBER IT’S OKAY TO

  • not be mentally ill
  • have good grades
  • to dislike reading
  • have a happy family
  • enjoy exercising/not enjoy exercising
  • to have different opinion
  • to reblog/not reblog certain posts
  • to be a gay white boy
  • to be a straight white boy
  • to be a bisexual white girl
  • (to be any race/gender/sexual orientation)
  • to not like porn
  • to not ship destiel
  • to not be in a fandom
  • to be in a happy relationship

People on tumblr need to remember that it’s okay to not be mentally ill???

Is this a joke. 

Please tell me this is some satire. 

In what world is it preferable to suffer mental illness? Will someone tell me, please? I’d very much like to go there. 

Shall we have a translation of that nonsensical, irresponsible, frankly appalling and selfish statement? 

Translation: Mental illness is just some fad that people are pretending to have in order to be cool on tumblr dot com.

To those people that apparently need to be reminded that it’s okay not to have a mental illness…

I am sure you will be able to get over your lack of internet cred on a blogging website, and if you could get over yourself for one second, you might think about how lovely it is for you to be able to, I don’t know, sleep, eat regularly, not cry all the time, not feel the need to self harm, not need tablets to function, not be belittled by society in general, not be considered an attention-seeker for speaking out or a liar for covering up. 

This post is trash. Trash trash trash. There’s a nasty message hidden under that chirpy helpful tone. Don’t fall for it. Don’t. 

I think the really pernicious thing here is that it brings up some relevant points in amongst the poisonous trash. Like the Destial thing, the not liking porn thing and the bisexual white girl thing (because that’s biphobia trying to pose as something else, like when men make white girl jokes about generically female things as an excuse to make misogynistic jokes).

A lot of what this post means is “don’t talk about your life, knowing you exist makes me uncomfortable.”

I completely agree. This sort of thing is clever bigotry, all dressed up as a feel-good post. It’s the most dangerous type. 

LOL forever at “it’s ok to be a straight white boy” what the helllllllllll

I met this twerking, albino Raven named Pearl today. It is only one of four known albino Ravens in the whole world.
Pearl lives in this woman’s house. The handler has a permit, and the bird is property of the government (like hawks and falcons). She is affiliated with the California Wildlife Center. Every time the handler stopped petting Pearl she started cawing. She really likes affection.

okay but when you have holocaust survivors and people who were activists during the civil rights movement supporting mike brown and then KKK members and neo nazi’s supporting the officer you should be able to figure out which side is the right one.
