The New Jim Crow
1. Ferguson, Missouri has a population of approximately 21,000 people — roughly 75% of those residents are Black
2. The Ferguson police department has around 530 cops —less than 5 of them are Black
3. Ferguson had *zero* homicides for all of 2014 —until Michael Brown was murdered by Darrin Wilson
4. Things you should know: Five Myths About Black-on-Black Crime
5. Michael Brown was 18yrs old and was about to begin college. Brown had no criminal record, and despite the Ferguson PD’s smear campaign, Mike Brown PAID FOR the cigars —those facts are all important and should be known, but even if Brown was a high school dropout with prior arrests who stole the cigars, 1) it wouldn’t have made his life any less valuable, 2) we have a court system and those are not capital offenses and 3) it doesn’t change the fact that the cop who killed him, Darren Wilson, had no idea about Brown’s personal history when he executed Brown. Wilson saw only a Black teen deemed either “too uppity” or “suspicious” because of his skin color
6. Five examples: The Militarization of the police
7. It’s deeply Institutional: Police view Black Children As Less Innocent
8. So please - don’t get it twisted

this is important please spread

So, we’re done arguing, right? The cop is a racist murdering wingnut, cops don’t need tanks, nobody needs to tear gas the reporters or peaceful protesters ever. Is there anything else?

William Shatner and friend in THE TWILIGHT ZONE, “Nightmare At 20,000 Feet.”

When people try to say Shatner wasn’t a good actor, I always direct them to his Twilight Zone episodes.

Wait, who says Shatner is a bad actor? Are they basing this off Kirk? Cause whole show was really over the top and campy. That’s part of the charm.

THIS IS A GRAPHIC I MADE MONTHS AGO I’M REPOSTING NOW (because sadly this is still relevant). text is also the same as last time.
hey readers,this is not the usual fare on my blog so i apologize in advance and please bear with me. i’d like to bring your attention to something that has made me sad and angry for some time now, and i can no longer shut up about it. the fact that this lady is building an entire business based on stolen designs. behold this sad sight ..^^^
now artists are always inspired by each other, drawing on each other’s energies and this is as it should be. when you are learning a new craft copying the works of others is extremely useful. as a teenager i copied works of schiele, bauer, bilibin, brian froud and manga artists clamp to name a few. hints of their influence can still be seen in my work. the important disctinction is i knew those copies were done for practice and kept them around my room never showing them to anyone. if i had showed them around i would’ve said “look here’s a copy of bilibin’s vasilisa drawing, i made it for practice”. not “here is some of my work. pay me for it”.a few years ago i had someone steal a lot of my art style and seeing their work, new or old, hurts me to this day. hurts as in i’ve cried about it countless times and if they hadn’t done it my art may have taken a different direction. i know this make me sounds like a drama queen! but it’s the truth and i really want others to think twice about this thing so i’m sharing the fact of how much it hurt me in the hopes that it will make people think twice before supporting stolen work.this is why i want to bring your attention to the above graphics. bloodmilk  is a true artist who clearly cites her inspirations: surrealism, victorian mourning jewels and her own life story. if you read the descriptions in her shop you’l see that here’s someone who thinks deeply about their art deserves the success that has come their way. little sister designs has blatantly stolen her whole aesthetic. please think twice before supporting a ripoff. i see the work of little sister designs posted on instagram a lot, i’m not sure whether i dare talk about this on there because drama can flare up so quickly in that medium. but i had to say something somewhere.let’s support ART and ORIGINALITY and HARD WORK. not ripoffs. it’s one thing to make a jewel or two (or a drawing) inspired by someone else. look closely at these shops and you will see that there is nothing original about the second one. i hope little sister designs finds their own voice and i don’t mean to spread hate, i just want people to stop sharing and supporting the work of this person.thanks for reading xoxo

Signal boosting. I’m not looking to stir up drama, but copying other people’s work and passing it off as your own is RUDE and SMALL-MINDED. Support the original artists.

does anybody else legitimately worry about how they’re going to share a bed with their partner when they’re older? like buddy i need all the blankets to make a burrito and then i need to throw them off of me dramatically in the middle of the night and lie spread-eagled across the entire bed how is this going to work

You get a really big bed, and have spare blankets folded up on the other side.

~Solved it!~

i barreled past the ‘media fatigue’ line re: ferguson & police brutality like three days ago but ferguson PD’s counting on people to stop paying attention so they can avoid accountability so fuck that shit

Yup.

Cosigned. 

I’mma just notarize this post real quick. Cause as sick as I am of humanity in general, and Americans specifically, hiding in my sweet ass pillow fort isn’t going to help.
