Honestly??? UO stays fucking up

It isn’t available for purchase anymore, according to TIME, but I have a very hard time believing it was “merely coincidental” that they chose a university that had a worldwide known shooting in 1970 to put onto a sweatshirt that was purposefully made to look “vintage” with red splatters that resemble blood. Their excuse was that the red stains were discoloration from the original shade of the shirt… Bullshit.
I should add for those who don’t know, Kent State students were peacefully protesting the Cambodian Campaign in May 4, 1970 when the Ohio National Guard carelessly shot 67 rounds over a period of 13 seconds into a crowd of protesters and on lookers; killing 4, wounding 9, and paralyzing 1.
Just a few weeks ago, Zara took down a shirt from their website that was identical to the Jewish prisoner uniforms they had to wear in concentration camps (including the golden “replica” of the Star of David).
A consumer psychology expert told TIME that controversy is good for business, and that’s exactly what’s happening right now. Companies like Urban Outfitters (who are known to appropriate cultures) and Zara are exploiting tragedies to create controversy for a profit. It’s a business model that seriously needs to end.

As I was sitting in the back of the police car, I remembered the countless times my father came home frustrated or humiliated by the cops when he had done nothing wrong. I felt his shame, his anger, and my own feelings of frustration for existing in a world where I have allowed myself to believe that “authority figures” could control my BEING… my ability to BE!
Danièle’s husband, Brian Lucas, who is white, says he believes they were targeted because they are an interracial couple.

black privilege….

they literally saw a black woman kissing a white man and ASSUMED SHE WAS A PROSTITUTE. and then they said they were married AND THE COPS FUCKING ASKED FOR ID???? what the fuck? what the fuck? and she said no AND WAS ARRESTED? they need to be fired but God knows that’s not going to happen. LISTEN: she’s an actress. this happened to a producer. even fucking Oprah. no matter what you accomplish as a black person, you are still black and people don’t think their rights apply to you despite the constitution it’s really scaryit’s really infuriatingit’s really exhausting

Her face makes me very very very very very sad. I wanna cry

Fuck all cops.

I don’t know why the husband believes they were targeted because they were an interracial couple… SHE was targeted because SHE was black… da fuk…

Right. He somehow had to make it about him when it was obvious that it was about her being black.

well part of the reason they stood out was because they were an interracial couple. let’s not pretend that isn’t still taboo.

Who’s cuffed though…..

Police continue to make arrests at Ferguson protest.

Part 4.

Take note: The moment people stopped reblogging and tweeting and writing news articles and calling attention to Ferguson, they brought back the armored cars. It is not over. They were waiting for the world to lose interest and knew it would.

OKAY. OKAY. WHAT THE UNHOLY HELL. OH GOD I’M SO MAD. HANG ON LOOK, KEEP READING THIS AND I PROMISE I’LL BE MORE CALM.

In 2012, a 17-year-old boy named T.J. Lane killed three fellow classmates in a school shooting, and was sentenced to life in jail. But wait, that’s not the worst part. This kid pulled a few nasty stunts to really show how much of a pathetic monstrosity he is. In the courtroom during his trial, he took off his more formal clothing to reveal a white undershirt with the word “KILLER” crudely written on it. He was smiling and laughing while the case progressed through the day. And to top it off, when he was finally sentenced [to life in prison], he turned to the families of the victims he killed, and said, “This hand that pulled the trigger that killed your sons now masturbates to the memory. F—- all of you,” before flicking them off. As if this sick waste of human life couldn’t get any more disgusting.

AND NOW, FOR THE DAMN KICKER: This vile animal has somehow managed to fucking escape prison with a fellow inmate, and is currently on the run. I urge any and all of you to spread this info around and be fully aware of the tragedy this vermin has caused. He must be found and apprehended as soon as possible, and if I’ve made anyone more aware, I’ve helped this cause.

I WANT HIM OFF THE STREETS AND AWAY FROM EVERY OTHER HUMAN BEING. YOU DON’T UNDERSTAND HOW INFURIATED I AM. I APOLOGIZE FOR ANY OBSCENE LANGUAGE BUT I’M PISSED OFF AT THE AMERICAN JUSTICE SYSTEM AND THIS IS ONLY ANOTHER NAIL IN THE COFFIN.

Second I saw the lineup for BH6 I got this real feeling of déjà vu

You can push and pull at features all you want (which they hardly did) but the origin of each of the female character models is still very obvious

gogo’s hurts the most. i thought she looked asian until i saw a pic of elsa squinting. :/

If I see one more fucking thing about similarities in Disney characters I am going to do very bad things, and that is a threat. I don’t fucking give a shit, Disney’s style is Disney’s style, if you don’t fucking like it then piss off, you bloody wanker.

If you woke up tomorrow, and your internet looked like this, what would you do? 

Imagine all your favorite websites taking forever to load, while you get annoying notifications from your ISP suggesting you switch to one of their approved “Fast Lane” sites.

Think about what we would lose: all the weird, alternative, interesting, and enlightening stuff that makes the Internet so much cooler than mainstream Cable TV. What if the only news sites you could reliably connect to were the ones that had deals with companies like Comcast and Verizon?

On September 10th, just a few days before the FCC’s comment deadline, public interest organizations are issuing an open, international call for websites and internet users to unite for an “Internet Slowdown” to show the world what the web would be like if Team Cable gets their way and trashes net neutrality. Net neutrality is hard to explain, so our hope is that this action will help SHOW the world what’s really at stake if we lose the open Internet.

If you’ve got a website, blog or tumblr, get the code to join the #InternetSlowdown here: https://battleforthenet.com/sept10th

Everyone else, here’s a quick list of things you can do to help spread the word about the slowdown: http://tumblr.fightforthefuture.org/post/96020972118/be-a-part-of-the-great-internet-slowdown
