You know how sometimes you’re just like “hey I found this person that isn’t quite our enemy and just misunderstood and we should all hug and fight/commit crime together” and then they just start shooting at each other and it’s like C’MON GUYS. CARE BEARS DON’T SHOOT EACH OTHER.

Somehow this is going to end up being my fault, isn’t it.

This sounds like a scenario I can definitely relate to.

The ‘economy’ of tumblr amuses me constantly- especially when a long dead post zombies back to life. (Mostly when it’s a piece I love because it’s great seeing all the new comments and tags.)

I feel like this post deserved approximately nine billion reblogs.

'they're looting, so'

in america, violence against property isn’t considered equivalent to violence against people. it’s considered worse

“Why are police calling the people of Ferguson animals and yelling at them to “bring it”? Because those officers in their riot gear, with their tear gas and dogs, want a justification for slaughter. But inexplicably…we turn our attention to the rioters, the people with less power, but justifiable anger, and say, “You are the problem.” No. A cop killing an unarmed teenager who had his hands in the air is the problem. Anger is a perfectly reasonable response. So is rage.

…How dare people preach and condescend to these people and tell them not to loot, not to riot? Yes, those are destructive forms of anger, but frankly I would rather these people take their anger out on property and products rather than on other people.

No, I don’t support looting. But I question a society that always sees the product of the provocation and never the provocation itself. I question a society that values property over black life. But I know that our particular system of law was conceived on the founding premise that black lives are white property…

[…]

Nothing makes white people more uncomfortable than black anger. But nothing is more threatening to black people on a systemic level than white anger. It won’t show up in mass killings. It will show up in overpolicing, mass incarceration, the gutting of the social safety net, and the occasional dead black kid. Of late, though, these killings have been far more than occasional. We should sit up and pay attention to where this trail of black bodies leads us….”

“Every moment when the ultra-buff turtles are on screen, busting each other’s chops, doing human beat-box routines and ineptly pitching woo at Megan Fox (because they’re, you know, teenagers) was so acutely painful that I had to draw on my own ninja training and reflect intensively on the transitory nature of all phenomena, just to fend off the profound yearning for death.”

So it’s 3AM and It’s just occurred to me that the most telling scene in the entire Harry Potter franchise is the scene following the announcement of the participants of the Triwizard…

Where are those statistics on the police being required to wear cameras themselves during their shifts …
