If you’re not upset about Katniss, Tonto, or Khan being played by white people, but you are upset about Annie being played by a black girl, you’re probably racist.
And by probably I mean definitely.
When someone says that they’re for social justice, feminism, anti-oppression, etc etc, but then turns around and says we should all vote Democrat
the black panthers cackle as they rub their hands together. “lmao soon all these fuckin kids are gonna have free breakfast,” they whisper, “all of them”
This hit me like a ton of bricks. I’m still feeling a little nauseous after this realization.
This is a wonderful presentation. I just had to add these:
Don’t ever let anyone tell you that gender egalitarianism isn’t possible among humans, or that our species’ “natural” state is one of gender oppression.
Causal reminder that fields of study like anthropology have been heavily influenced by the ideology of the patriarchal, heterosexist white supremacist power structure.
"Forced sexual intercourse is almost unheard of because of the respect females command and because the taboo is so strong”
White privilege is being the #1 consumers of welfare, food stamps, general government aid, and illegal drugs, but STILL blaming POC for all of those things as well as incarcerating them at an exponentially higher rate.
"Execution“ of Tajik and Dagestani is a video clip which was distributed in the Russian segment of the Internet in August 2007, that depicted beheading of a Tajik and Dagestani immigrants by Russian neo-nazis.
The video sparked active discussions in the Russian media.
On 17 March 2008, the District Court of Novgorod ruled the video as extremist, and banned its distribution in the Russian Federation.
The video was posted on behalf of the Nazi Party of Russia on the personal livejournal blog of Adygean college student Viktor Milnikov. After a few days, he was arrested and later sentenced to one year of corrective labour by Maykop court.
On 5 June 2008, scenes of decapitation on video were identified as authentic by the Russian Investigation Committee.
On the same day, one of the victims on the footage was identified by his relatives as Shamil Odamanov, a native of Dagestan.

Hey that’s great advice! WHY DIDN’T I THINK OF THAT??

This lamp absorbs 150 times more CO2 than a tree
It’s still in the “so crazy it just might work” stage, but these microalgae-powered lamps, invented by French biochemist Pierre Calleja, could absorb a ton of carbon from the air every year. That’s as much as 150 to 200 trees. [x]
YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND. This is ingenious.
The design is a light bulb surrounded by a glass casing. The glass is filled with (water based) media and microalgae. The top is permeable to gasses so that gas exchange can occur. All of the wiring is linked to the grid underground.
Since the light source is inside, it gets scattered and “dimmed” by the water and algae. This makes it less glaringly bright and scatters the light wider, which is good for a street light. It is not longer white light as well, which helps make it easier on the eyes while still providing light.
At the same time, it provides the light for photosynthesis in the algae, so they are continuously exchanging CO2 for O2, not just in the day. It also provides a source of heat, which helps keep the algae from going dormant during cold weather (as in the snowy picture above).
And notice how I did not specify permeability - that’s because NOx’s (NO and NO2) are also permeable and can be used as nitrogen sources to microalgae. In fact, algae are relatively low maintenance. As autotrophs, they don’t require super complex media, not does it really need to be changed/added to. (I’m actually fairly certain that there would still be algae in these tanks a year later; it may need to be cleaned or something, but there would be some living algae.)
If anyone wants to hire me to do mad science like this for a living I am so game
I’d want to see a project page or somewhere I can learn more because this is the shit!
My education book is keepin it real
oh hey look A TEXTBOOK SAYS THIS
please pay fucking attention to this
White people scream race doesn’t matter until someone makes their favorite character black
THIS IS THE BEST.
*ugly, hacking laughter*
#basically a community’s enjoyment of a thing is more important than the damaging social dynamics perpetuated in the texT???#is that what he’s trying to say???#people enjoy the misogyny they’re being fed so who are we to call them out?? is that what i’m hearing here?#it’s okay to uphold harmful systems of oppression as long as people enjoy it!???? is that the message??#w H A t
This is essentially another version of the argument “it makes money and is successful, and therefore is above any critical analysis or social/political critique.”
It’s always been a bullshit defense.
well if he acknowledged the potential damage problematic narratives can cause, he’d have to examine his own, and that would just be awkward.
