I’m so tired of tumblr propaganda and i used to be so apart of it. Start getting your information from legitimately sourced places, aka not tumblr, where they will post an image with 5 words underneath it and no sources. I hopped straight onto the…

Hello, so I agree with you that things on tumblr should never be assumed as credible at face value, and that people need to do their own research instead of blindly accepting things. However, in this particular case I think that if you truly look at all of the evidence presented from “both sides”…there is a lot of uncertainty. It has been alleged that even the store owner of the place that was robbed by someone of similar stature to Mike Brown doesn’t think Mike Brown was the robber. Also, I think the cop’s attorney and most if not every other attorney, in honesty, will try and use the evidence at their disposal in their client’s favor, as long as they are not flat out lying and trying to falsify evidence, and the video even says, yes, the autopsy report * could be* consistent with what the lawyer said, that is one of the plausible circumstances. I think the more important issue here, though, is the fact that no one really seems to know all of this for certain, obviously none of *us* were actually there. Yet do you know what could have cleared up what actually happened definitively? Police body cameras, which is one of the things that the protesters in Ferguson were pushing for. Regardless of your assumptions about Mike Brown’s character, do you believe that the police are justified in their treatment of the Ferguson protesters? Because it’s very easy to look outside of tumblr and find information about the atrocities taking place there.

awesome. and still we can’t have our black widow’s solo movie

Ducks rank slightly higher than women on the scale of Hollywood’s anticipated interest scale. According to movie producers, ducks are remarkable animals capable of rudimentary thought, occasional flight and they may well actually see movies, maybe.

Women, according to the common Hollywood movie producer, rank only between granite pebbles and Cheez Whiz as demographics. Most producers have never actually seen a woman, and consider them decoration for movie posters by merit of their posteriors and breasts. The notion of a movie actually starring such a creature is all but unthinkable. When Lucy (Starring the same actress who plays Black Widow) beat out The Rock’s new Hercules movie at the box office, Hollywood producers were surprised and dismayed and have yet to actually assimilate the strange findings, which many have blamed on a time-space phenomenon or some sort of financial trickery, or possibly Loki. It is not a consideration that there may be interest in seeing films starring women, and even less so that some of the audiences for modern cinema may in fact be women themselves, as women account for only 0.02% of America’s population according to Wikipedia.

Hmm, strange. The last edit to that statistic… Was made by DUCKS.

One chart says it all about the government and female bodies 

We’re only halfway through 2014, and state legislators have already introduced a whopping 468 restrictions intended to limit, control or otherwise regulate women’s reproductive rights.

How many comparable bills have been introduced to regulate men’s reproductive health care during this period? Zero. 

Something’s very wrong with this picture.

What would restricting male reproductive rights even look like? | Follow micdotcom

TW: Police brutality - NYPD goes into wrong apartment, drags naked grandmother out of her home, pepper spray 4-year-old & arrest 12-year-old
August 2, 2014

A Brooklyn grandmother who had just taken a shower was dragged from her apartment by about 12 cops who then stood by for more than two minutes while she was naked in the hallway, according to video that emerged Friday.

Denise Stewart was in her Brownsville apartment on July 13 when police — responding to a domestic disturbance call at the building — pounded on her door at 11:45 p.m. and demanded entry.

Stewart, 48, cracked the door wearing only a towel wrapped around her body and underpants — and was yanked into the hallway by cops over the screams of her family and neighbors.

The video shows a chaotic scene as a dozen or so male officers burst into Stewart’s apartment, while several others struggle to subdue and cuff the nearly naked woman in the hallway outside.

Stewart’s towel got lost in the scuffle, leaving the grandmother dressed only in underpants.

“Oxygen, get my oxygen,” the mother of four can be heard saying to the cops, as they propped her bare body against the wall.

A cop shouts, “OK, OK,” and darts out of the screen.

Neighbors videotaping from the stairwell started shouting as Stewart, who has severe asthma, fainted and fell to the floor.

“Yo, her mother got asthma …y’all wicked, y’all f——— wicked,” shouted one woman.

“Her asthma! Her asthma! Her asthma,” screamed another woman. For approximately two minutes and 20 seconds, Stewart was bare-breasted in the hallway as additional police officers tramped up the stairs and through the hallway, glancing at her as they passed by.
When cops hauled Stewart’s two sons and two daughters out of the apartment and cuffed them, a female cop finally draped a white towel over Stewart’s exposed torso.
Reached at her home Friday, Stewart told the Daily News she was traumatized. “It’s disgusting and embarrassing. I’ve been married 16 years. It took my husband 10 years to see my nakedness,” she said. “I didn’t do nothing wrong,” she said, crying as she recounted the ordeal.
The NYPD said they’d gotten a 911 call to the Kings Highway address but didn’t have an apartment number. They heard shouts coming from Stewart’s apartment. When they knocked, she told them they had the wrong place and tried to shut the door, police said.
Stewart’s 12-year-old daughter had “visible injuries” to her face, cops said. She told officers her mother and older sister beat her with a belt, police said.
Family members tried to prevent them from arresting Stewart, who bit an officer’s finger during the struggle, police said.
Stewart’s lawyer, Amy Rameau, said she was told by a Legal Aid attorney also assigned to the case that the 911 call came from a different apartment on an upper floor — and cops went to Stewart’s door by mistake.
Cops removed the 12-year-old from the apartment and say she refused to get into the police car and kicked the door.
A police spokesman said the child kicked out one of the police van’s windows, with the broken glass cutting the chin of one of the cops. The cops were treated at local hospitals and released.
Denise Stewart was charged with assaulting a police officer, and — along with her oldest daughter, Diamond Stewart, 20, — resisting arrest, acting in a manner injurious to a child and criminal possession of a weapon.

Stewart’s son Kirkland Stewart, 24, was charged with resisting arrest. The 12-year-old was charged with assaulting a police officer, criminal mischief and criminal possession of a weapon.

Diamond Stewart’s 4-year-old son was also pepper sprayed, the family said.

“They manhandled (Stewart) and behaved in a deplorable manner,” Rameau said. “She feels completely mortified. This is about human dignity.”

The city’s Administration for Children’s Services was called to investigate but didn’t find any evidence of neglect, said Rameau.

“There were no injuries to the child as alleged in the complaint,” the lawyer said.

A police spokesman said the incident is under investigation by Internal Affairs.

I had to look up this story on multiple sources because I literally couldn’t believe this actually happened.

And for her to be there naked in front of these RANDOM white men who broke into her home, saying that it took her 10 years for her to even let her HUSBAND see her naked body…..

I’m devastated.

they maced a four year old

a four year old

Let me get this straight

They got a call to a complex, but had no info on which apartment called…so they chose a random one and decided to harass the tenants. They didn’t even CHECK to see if they had the right place. They didn’t even listen when they were told that it WASNT the right place? THEN they assault a naked grandmother to the point where she could have died, harass her children, pepper spray an INNOCENT 4 year old (because I’m sure the child was a danger to everyone) and then are shocked when the 12 year old acts out? Because she’s obviously going to get into your van after you’ve thrown her grandmother to the ground! How dare she resist as you mistreat her family! God where are they getting these “police officers” from?

And on top of that there were 12 officers attacking this poor family? Are you fucking kidding me? I’m about to throw up.

i drew a bunch of elves of color!!

This post reminds me of something that happened a few years back.

I once served as art director for a project where the illustration spec called for characters of a variety of races (in the real-world sense, not the Dungeons & Dragons sense - though the latter was involved as well).

We had one particular artist, tasked with drawing a series of elves, who didn’t quite seem to get what that meant. Their output was basically “white elf”, “another white elf”, “white elf with a tan”, “white elf looking a bit pale”, “yet another white elf”, etc.

When this was pointed out, they were like “oh, yeah, now I get it - I’ll totally fix that with my next piece”.

They proceeded to turn in a picture of a blue elf.

In the end, we had to provide specific quotas for specific levels of racial representation in order to get the point across. It all worked out in the end, but it’s stuck with me ever since that this artist examined the original spec, looked at our feedback, and came to the conclusion a blue elf was more plausible than a black one.

In conclusion: this is awesome.

Read that last paragraph as many times as you need to.

Why do black people straighten their hair if non-black people can't get corn row/ box braid/ whatever you consider a "black" hairstyle

why do white people always try to make this non-point false equivalence when they know these are two completely different realities that don’t compare on any plane whatsoever

white people not only make black people hate their hair at an individual emotional level but literally at a systemic level in which black people are and have been for the last century unable to get jobs, attend colleges, enlist in the armed forces, etc. because of the treatment of their natural hair. there literally is nothing white people have to compare…

white people are not getting box braids because they feel pressured to, or out of fear that they won’t have access to a job or anything, but instead because they know it’s an “edgy black people thing” that they’re doing to be counter culture and subversive. there is literally no pressure on earth for anyone INCLUDING BLACK PEOPLE to worship or utilize Black hairstyles or Black hair in its natural state and you fucking know it. It’s literally the complete opposite for white hair. grow up

white people are not gelling down baby hairs for social mobility or financial security or comfort or assimilation.

Read the ads

"MEN WHO GO PLACES" "WAS IT HER RESUME OR HER RELAXER?" white people don’t have ads telling them "you will not be successful in life unless you have cornrows and box braids with gelled down baby hairs" because that isn’t the case. address this in the context of reality, maybe???

God, this makes me so incredibly sad. I never really thought about this before and I am so upset.

People of every race, religion, gender and sexual orientation have ads telling them to do all kinds of crazy shit. So what?

It’s hair for fucks sake. YOUR hair. A part of YOUR body. Do what the fuck you like with it, whoever you are.

Send me 1/2 as many pieces of evidence as I’ve provided of white people being told that having straight hair will not allow them to get jobs, have social mobility, be taken seriously or enter the armed forces. You’re not going to respond to news articles, statistics, studies, and advertisements that have existed and been recreated over 100 years with something you just pulled out of your ass lol.

Send me an advertisement telling white people that if they get box braids they will get a job more easily and be taken more seriously

Send me ONE advertisement telling white people that having cornrows will be more important than their resume in getting them the job and being taken seriously.

Send me it lol don’t just talk about it. let me see one.

We’re not just guessing here. Send me. Let’s see it. Send me a news article of a white woman losing her job because she didn’t have cornrows. Send me oneeeee send it to me.

This is a good point. However, I also googled the movie after finding this coincidentally earlier today before seeing this post on tumblr, and found these http://variety.com/2014/film/news/marvel-black-widow-scarlett-johansson-1201104415/ http://moviepilot.com/posts/2014/06/12/marvel-confirms-they-are-developing-a-solo-scarlett-johansson-black-widow-movie-1499072?lt_source=external,manual#!bt3A7Z http://www.ign.com/articles/2014/03/25/marvel-is-still-considering-a-black-widow-spin-off-movie although I realize that all of these are just sort of gossip websites and their information is unsourced. So, I suppose I did leap too quickly, which occurred to me immediately after commenting, though I did think it might be worth discussion just incase anyone else had more information from actual credible sources. I couldn’t even find any information about when this film would be released or whether or not it’s in production. Also telling and rather disheartening that in the first link Feige claims “‘The Avengers’ comes first,” as a reason for suspending the Black Widow film, in spite of the fact that obviously several films have been made with primary focus on many of the male Avengers as their titular characters. It does sound like this film is, at best, merely conceptual at this point, and my and anyone else’s hopes for anything more anytime soon may simply be wishful thinking.
