BLACK AUGUST

"killed for being black" there's more black on white murders than vice versa per capita. Heck, there's more black on black murder than white on black murder in both absolute and per capita terms. Stop bitching and get your own fucking house in order.

I would ask to a link to your stats but I literally don’t care, you don’t have any, and that’s beside the point. Are any of those white people being killed for being white? Again, are any of those white people being killed for being white? Literally no… like what dimension of earth are you in if you just typed back what i said verbatim and still didn’t understand it?

These are things that don’t just happen to black people, but specifically happen to them because they are Black, because of systemic racism… Now, you make a similar list of murders and violence and humiliation happening to white people because of their racial position in this country, because of racism, that are reflective of any racial subordination they have in this country— i will wait…

That’s not just a cosplay Cat Woman, that’s a hero. On Saturday July 26 at Comic-Con Alicia Marie was cosplaying as Tigra with her geek+model friends. A creep publicly reached into her bikini bottom and de-pantsed her. He would have gotten away unscathed if not for ANTM winner Adrianne Curry. Dressed as Cat Woman, Adrianne chased down and clocked him with the butt of her bull whip. Hopefully some folks got photos of his bloody face, this guy deserves some JAIL TIME.

"Right now, I am just thankful and happy I have friends that don’t even have to put a costume on to be superheroes.   AM”

Alicia’s much longer original Facebook post here. More thoughts on cosplay and harassment here from the Comics Beat’s Heidi Macdonald. Adrianne Curry can’t be everywhere, con organizers and attendees all need to do more. We need to do more.

Requiring students to learn about race is crucial… necessary even. But I also think it’s necessary that we tell students very directly that their coursework alone won’t earn them any social justice gold stars. We need to be more explicit when establishing safe spaces in classrooms where race is being discussed: ”safe spaces” should not mean spaces where students can say racist things and be absolved of blame. They should be safe spaces for marginalized voices. White guilt, white tears, and white saviorism have no place in these classrooms. We need to teach students not to just understand what the master’s tools and the master’s house are, but what they mean.

Most of all, we need to recognize the limitations of academics. We need to teach students to listen, to be vulnerable and admit fault. Academics can fuel action. I consider all of my friends to be fiercely intelligent. They’re thoughtful and well-educated, and profess to be progressive. But some of them are also the kind of people who remain silent over Israel’s attacks on Gaza, worried that speaking out could hurt their job prospects. Because American individualism seems to be one lesson universities struggle to unteach.

A degree can’t be used as proof that you “understand my struggle.” A degree can’t be used as a shield against criticism. Most of all, a degree can’t be used as a weapon to invalidate my lived experiences. How can a piece of paper on a wall weigh more than the burden I carry just for existing as a woman of color? Your degree counts for something, but it’s not enough.

The “new” word. New to you clueless ass crackers.

you people are literally the worst

PS according to my German speaking hedgeknight who lived in Germany the first 15 years of his life:
Kunstwerk = piece of art
Kunst = art
Werk = creation, work
And according to him, abbreviating it to “twerk” would just never happen at all in German.
So clearly what the fuck is going on. 



lmao
I’m normally not on the “white people must be stopped” bandwagon but this is pretty ridiculous. 

It’s time to turn down

white people will manifest destiny anything.

shit went from “ghetto trash” when black people do it too “getmantwhatevrthefuckthatwordis medium of dramatic expression” when white people do it

So is this what they’re trying to do?
