THE ACCURACY IS OVERWHELMING.
The most perfect description of Sarah Palin I’ve ever seen O.O;
i dont get offended at white people jokes even though im white because:
- i can recognize white people as a whole have systemically oppressed POC in america, which is where i live
- most people when they make white people jokes only mean the shitty white people and i am not a shitty white person
- im not a pissbaby
my white friends that have reblogged this give me life
4. Sometimes I am a shitty white person and the jokes remind me to FUCKIN STOP
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
ZOINKS LOOK OUT SCOOB ITS THE GENDER BINARY
Which has more stores in the U.S.: Target or Home Depot? It might surprise you to learn that as of the end of fiscal year 2013, the winner of that faceoff was in fact Home Depot, which had 1,977 U.S. locations, as opposed to Target’s 1,795. And that might help explain why a newly discovered data breach at the home improvement chain threatens to exceed the one that compromised the credit and debit card information of about 40 million people who shopped at Target.
Brian Krebs at Krebs on Security is reporting that Home Depot might be the victim of a recent and massive data breach tied to a new batch of stolen credit and debit cards that hit the black market Tuesday morning. Paula Drake, a spokeswoman for Home Depot, told Krebs that the company is “looking into some unusual activity” with the help of banks and law enforcement. While the information is far from complete, Krebs said that early analysis suggests the theft could have been carried out by the same Russian and Ukrainian hackers that struck Target:Several banks contacted by this reporter said they believe this breach may extend back to late April or early May 2014. If that is accurate — and if even a majority of Home Depot stores were compromised — this breach could be many times larger than Target, which had 40 million credit and debit cards stolen over a three-week period.
Who shops there these days? I mean, go Google “Ken Langone”
and the shit he’s said about the pope and the poor and tell Home Depot to fuck off.
Michael Jackson was born 56 years ago today in Gary, Indiana. This photo was taken in 1979 for a story in GQ magazine.
Gary, Indiana… now I’ve got that song stuck in my head…hopefully something in this man’s vast catalog can take care of that.
you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.
In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.
For the commentary
this is what i imagine sports is
"Fat people can’t—”
Yes they can! [x]
My baby brother was about that size in high school…did not stop him from killing it both on the football field…and in varsity gymnastics.
don’t forget that Betty Boop was a major influence in Osamu Tezuka’s work. Tezuka is considered one of the fathers of modern anime with the “big doe eyes” style so to some extent all anime girls nowadays owe part of their legacy to this lady!
Stand where you are, look around, and list whatever liquidy thing is closest to you. This is now your fanfic lube.
I just wonder how many people have actual lube close to them….
Tumblr, we need you! A rogue Arizona State representative, John Kavanagh, wants to pass a bill that would thow trans people in jail for using public restrooms. Anyone could be asked for I.D. to “prove” their gender, and if there’s a discrepancy they could face a fine or jailtime.
When asked why the bill targeted trans people, Kavanagh explained that it’s because he thinks “they’re weird.” Outrageous.
We can stop this bill by taking action at www.allout.org/arizona and spreading the word far and wide. Will you help?
You guys please reblog this and spread this like wildfire. This is where I live and I would hate to see the trans people of my state not be abLE TO FUCKING PISS BECAUSE OF THE GENDER THEY IDENTIFY WITH
