Going to respond to all criticism with “I’m Kanye West, that doesn’t make any sense.”
DC is being all gritty and “realistic” and Marvel just had a movie where the galaxy is saved by a dance-off and the power of friendship
And neither one of them can imagine a world either gritty and realistic enough or fun and fantastic enough in which a woman or a person of color is the hero.
Rev Sekou kneeled between protesters and police and prayed, then was thrown into a police vehicle with blood smears all inside of it.
we’re living in an era where capturing moments on our phones is more important than building giant robots to protect us from the giant alien lizard monsters emerging from the depths of the pacific ocean
STOP SHITTING ON THE YOUNGER GENERATION MAYBE WE CAN DO BOTH
omfg so today I saw a man and a woman holding hands in public, i mean i don’t have anything against heterosexuality but don’t flaunt it in front of me, think of the kids omfg
I don’t have anything against it either. I really don’t. My best friend is straight, but like, keep it in the bedroom you know?
Don’t forget that women of color and trans women (and especially trans women of color) receive even higher sentences for hurting/killing in self-defense against abusive partners than cis and/or white women.
BREAKING: Florida Police Officer Tasers 63-Year-Old African-American Viola Young In The Back As She’s Walking Away From Him [TW: Graphic Content]
A Florida police officer has place been on paid administrative leave after cell phone video showed him using a Taser to stun a 62-year-old African-American woman in the back as she was walking away.
In a press conference held at 3:15 a.m. on Wednesday, Tallahassee Police Chief Michael DeLeo announced that Officer Terry Mahan had been placed on leave pending the outcome of an internal investigation, according to the Tallahassee Democrat.
Police said that officers were responding to reports of drug dealing in a neighborhood on Tuesday afternoon. Cell phone video provided to police by a neighbor shows officers placing three suspects in the patrol cars, and repeatedly warning them about walking in the street.
Viola Young, 62, approaches Officer Mahan to ask about one of the men who was being detained. Mahan advises her to stay back, and tries to grab her arm. After she turns and walks away, the officer pulls out his Taser and fires it into her back.
Young falls face down onto the pavement.
She was taken into custody on charges of resisting an officer without violence. Young was released on Wednesday.
“Based on the video, I have enough concerns to call for an internal investigation and have Officer Mahan put on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation,” DeLeo told reporters. “We will conduct a thorough investigation into this incident. We want to be transparent with the community by sharing what we can at this point.”
“The investigation will determine if the officer’s actions were legal and if those actions were consistent with the expectations I have set for our officers in terms of how we respect and treat our citizens,” he added.
On Wednesday, Tallahassee defense attorney Chuck Hobbs wrote a letter to State Attorney Willie Meggs asking her to “strongly consider” filing charges against the officer.
“I am asking you to strongly consider filing charges directly if you and your top investigators conclude that this incident was unjustified and there is probable cause and reasonable likelihood of a successful prosecution under one or more Florida laws,” Hobbs wrote. [The Raw Story]

British comedy will always give me a sense of national pride like nothing else can
Just because a person is a good actor, doesn’t mean they’d be good in any role.
But Meryl Streep though.
for those not in the know, night witches were russian lady bombers who bombed the shit out of german lines in WW2. Thing is though, they had the oldest, noisiest, crappest planes in the entire world. The engines used to conk out halfway through their missions, so they had to climb out on the wings mid flight to restart the props. the planes were also so noisy that to stop germans from hearing them combing and starting up their anti aircraft guns, they’d climb up to a certain height, coast down to german positions, drop their bombs, restart their engines in midair, and get the fuck out of dodge.
their leader flew over 200 missions and was never captured.

How do protesters stay in contact with each other when the government has shut down or censored Internet and mobile networks? Simple: You don’t use either.
Meet Open Garden’s FireChat, the messenger app protesters in Hong Kong have been using to circumvent government attempts to prevent them from organizing by blocking social networks like Instagram. Instead of relying on a single website or government-controlled networks, FireChat uses a technology called mesh networking for its “Nearby” chat mode.
YES!! THIS IS EVERYTHING!
