This is my dream crust.
There was no great acheivement. He’s a celebrity for the worst possible reason. Why are you getting that autograph? Why are you so excited to get the autograph of a man who murdered a black child. What about that excites you to the point that you’re like, ‘I need to get an autograph and preserve this moment forever.’?

To afford rent in DC without spending more than 30 percent of their income on housing, a renter would need to earn $27.15 an hour, over three times DC’s $8.25 hourly minimum wage. In other words, a minimum wage earner would need to work 132 hours a week to pay rent in the district.
And again I say $10.10 isn’t enough. It isn’t simply isn’t a matter of just wages, affordable housing needs to be addressed too.
Yea I’m hoping to intern in D.C. and finances are a major deterrent. There’s no way I can have an unpaid internship and afford housing, transportation and food. Housing alone is about $1600 a month. Ridiculous.
yeah dont get me started on the prevalence of unpaid internships in DC aka internships for rich kids, which lead to jobs for rich kids . it’s a damn shame. -____________-
The House GOP just voted to repeal Obamacare for the 50th time. I’ll bet that sandwich tastes like freedom!
isn’t it interesting
how whenever lyrics by artists like Nicki Minaj, Beyonce and M.I.A are used on photo sets and gif sets and graphics of white women
it’s alway signifying some kind of Otherness or rebel status: white women who r warriors like Jennifer Lawrence’s Katniss, or Emilia Clarke’s Danaerys, or in queer interpretations with Buffy and Faith. but i never see Nicki or M.I.A or Bey’s lyrics on photosets where white women are being deep and contemplative and innocent (Sansa Stark) or gentle and vulnerable and “feminine” and pensive and in love; no there’s a hundred thousand playlists of Florence and the Machine and Regina Spektor and Lana Del Rey and Marina and the Diamonds for that stuff right?
did y’all ever think, i mean you, white feminists on Tumblr who love to talk about ~weaponized femininity~ that maybe your use of Black and Brown women’s words is premised on seeing them as Other, as rebels, as not-quite-women, and that by appropriating these lyrics without considering the larger context of womanhood and race y’all are basically capitalizing off a marginalization that you created to affirm YOUR status as the Everywoman?
did y’all ever think it suspect that Nicki and M.I.A and Rihanna will be tokenized on a hundred “badass” playlists but none of y’all can name a single 90’s R&B song when it comes to a playlist about love and sensuality?
ever stop to wonder how affirmation of “rebel” white women like Dany and Katniss are constituted from the marginalization of WOC from feminist spaces y’all have defined as (implicitly) white?
maybe stop and think a little bit before taking catchy lyrics out of context?
omg on this episode of ANTM the models worked with little girls who had been bullied
And one of the black women was paired with a little black girl and when the little girl was asked when was it that she didn’t feel pretty and the little girl said “when I look at the color of my skin and my hair” and the model was like “why don’t you think those are beautiful?”
and the little girl said “because when I look at princesses they’re all pretty and they have different hair”
and then she started crying.
THIS IS WHY WE NEED REPRESENTATION OF ALL KINDS OF PEOPLE IN CHILDREN’S MEDIA.
THIS IS WHY WE NEEDED A BLACK PRINCESS WHO WASN’T AN ANIMAL MOST OF THE MOVIE, WHO DIDN’T WEAR HER HAIR IN A TIGHT BUN THE ENTIRE TIME.
THIS IS WHY PRINCESSES AND PRINCES OF DIFFERENT RACES AND SIZES CAN’T BE TOKENIZED, THEY NEED TO BE NORMALIZED.

Today is Copernicus’s 541th birthday. You may remember Copernicus as the man who said “Hey, what if the Earth went around the sun?” To which the Catholic Church replied “Hey, what if we set you on fire?”
