Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

smh

Many of us have preconceived notions about people’s accents. We find Western European accents—French, British, Castilian Spanish, Italian—relatively appealing, while Asian and Mexican accents are experienced as unintelligible or offensive… if an employee speaks French well and English only moderately well, we aren’t bothered. however, if Filipinos, for example, speak Tagalog to one another at work, the assumptions are that they are purposefully excluding English-speakers, that they are not trying to learn English, and that they don’t care. A mean-spirited quality is attributed to the behavior.

Frances E. Kendall, Understanding White Privilege 

White supremacy doesn’t regard non-white languages as real languages, it regards them as deviant forms of communication reduced to broad ethnic strokes (“Indian”, “Asian”, “African”) that is unacceptable because it is seen as an affront to white/euro hegemony.

BULLET JOURNALING 

Watch the original video here ( x )
Before I saw this video, I always kept a book for my homework. I use grid paper and it’s perfect for BJ… Heh. After watching this, it helped me to start developing a system I’m currently satisfied with. 

To-do apps don’t work with me. It always just sits on my screen with a notification and swiping something doesn’t feel as satisfying as crossing it out victoriously with a pen. ^_^

  1. LEGENDS ( you can also do it like thisHelps you quickly figure out what certain tasks are at a glance. The colours are for my spiraldexes which I will not be discussing unless you guys request it. c:
  2. Pages This is basically what my pages look like. I write the numbers at the lower corners.I also added sticky notes for extra stuff like memorizing my moral definitions. :p
  3. Calendar  ( x ) If you watch the video, you’re supposed to list out the dates but I prefer both, so I draw a calendar and paste it in my book and list out all the really appointments/stuff I have to do in my drawn calendar and some not-important-but-still-worth-noting notes in my list-calendar.
  4. Index Just write down the pages as shown in the video. Pretty simple. 
  5. Other things you can include: I also stick some motivational images on the last page and stuff like that. Spiraldexes can be fun but they tend to be a little time consuming to draw or at least, I can seem to use them effectively. :c
  • Have pages especially for grocery lists/ grades/ etc. 
  • Page full of favourite recipes
  • Stick an envelope at the back cover and fill it with motivational inspiration!
  • Stick printables ( x ) ( x ) ( x ) ( x )
  • Start a goal/wishlist!

 Good luck! :*

Why is it that culture is only innovative and worth discussing before a grand audience after it has been appropriated? Remember that article about the science of twerking? When I was a kid Black girls were being told they were “fast” for twerking at recess. Miley Cyrus does it on MTV and now it’s some marvellous thing they need to dissect and understand. This Christopher Columbus approach is such a problem. Recently VOGUE published an article about big butts being trendy. Remember when they sacrificed Sarah Baartman (and other African women) for science? Her body was considered abnormal and was therefore put on display as a paid attraction. She was considered wild and savage-like for her features, and even after death her body parts were still for public consumption. There are many hardships associated with being a Black woman, but I find erasure to be one of the toughest parts. Our bodies are not trends. (And not just Black bodies, bodies in general are not trends.) The same things they shun us for, the same things they call ghetto, unacceptable, disgusting, savage-like, unfit, insubordinate are brand new and cool now that they can be Whiter. And sure, they mentioned a few obligatory Black women but not in depth, not historically, and essentially not without sexualization. We’re discouraged from being openly sexual but our prowess is duplicated and profited from across the globe. Why is it that we’re never invited to the table of discussion? Why is it that our flesh is only worthy soaked in bleach?
