Uncle Ruckus is the personification of anti-blackness. Wuncler Sr. is the personification of the capitalist white supremacist power structure and now we have Grandad the old school respectability politics personification let’s think about the fact that they are all friends. Respectability Politics, Anti-Blackness, White Supremacy role together in a clique. There’s a reason why they all cool.

Imagine if Black people were given the Point of View gun from the Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy. Imagine how things would change if white people and non-black poc had to feel what anti-black racism felt like.
If that was the punishment they were given, when did something racist, or anti-black. Imagine if Black Women had that gun and shot it at everyone. The amount of validation to be felt that you were able to make someone feel, or experience exactly how you felt, in the exact way you experienced. I think I just got an story idea.

Friendly reminder that you’re allowed to like a thing without knowing every single fact about the thing
You’re allowed to like a movie without having to know every crew member’s name
You’re allowed to like a book without having to memorize every page
You’re allowed to like a video game without having to know all the Easter eggs and cheat codes
You’re allowed to like things and not be an expert on things
Liking things isn’t supposed to be stressful
One of the main reasons of why fake geek girls/fake fangirls belief is toxic.

It bothers me when I see my white friends get upset about sexism, or homophobia but will be calm and collected when racism is involved. Sure you can say well they are white so it’s not gonna upset them like it will me, but that’s not it. There’s a level of emoting that I can see them have with fictional characters that I won’t see them have with racism. I was an emotional wreck when I saw 12 yrs a Slave with them. They were both fine. They knew it was tragic, knew it’s sad they get it. They understand and are aware of white privilege but still. They left that movie perfectly fine. They stayed by my side and comforted me, and hugging me. But still they were fine. No tears, no wincing, no pain, no emoting, they were fine. I think about that day a lot, I think about white friends I had over the years and how racism just doesn’t bother them, and it’s scary. But for me it just really eats at me because when white people say they can’t understand they really can’t. They can get it theoretically yeah, but that shared empathy of understanding why it hurts, why it burns it just they can’t….and what do you say to that?

Petition to let the insult of “you let a girl…(insert thing a girl did better)”
die in a fire. Insulting a man under the insinuation that women are just weaker and inherently bad at existing, is one of the most dehumanizing things to experience as a woman. Stop saying it, stop having fictional characters say it, just fucking stop saying it.

So Egyptians needed aliens’ help to build big pyramids, but white people got to space all by themselves?

Yet another reason for the outrage in the small St. Louis suburb.
Mother Jones’s Mark Follman provides new insight into the tense relationship between the black community in Ferguson, Missouri, and local law enforcement following the shooting of Michael Brown. He reports that shortly after Ferguson police officer Darren Wilson shot and killed the 18-year-old on August 9, Brown’s grieving mother helped set up a makeshift memorial at the site of the shooting. Police then reportedly ran over the memorial with their cars, and at least one officer let his police dog urinate on the memorial site.
From Mother Jones:
[Missouri state Rep. Sharon Pace] purchased some tea lights for the family, and around 7 p.m. she joined Brown’s mother, Lesley McSpadden, and others as they placed the candles and sprinkled flowers on the ground where Brown had died. “They spelled out his initials with rose petals over the bloodstains,” Pace recalled.
By then, police had prohibited all vehicles from entering Canfield Drive except for their own. Soon the candles and flowers had been smashed, after police drove over them.
"That made people in the crowd mad," Pace said, "and it made me mad." Some residents began walking in front of police vehicles at the end of the block to prevent them from driving in.

apparently “bae” means “before anyone else” i always thought it was a ghetto word for “babe”
maybe dont reblog this because its racist as hell lol
It’s ghetto yet they have no problems using “yung” “based” in their url. It’s ghetto when white people don’t know what AAVE means, all the while still apporiating the same “ghetto” monikers that they view as cool, or ironically cool. The irony of this.
