Miranda Priestly purses her lips at white folks in nasty ass stuck-in-the-carpet-for-three-years dreads.

heteronormativity is genderbending main characters just to permit non-platonic interactions between the characters.

i’m looking at you, elementary.

that’s really cute how you dismiss the importance of replacing a white male literary icon with a woman of color and ignore how much pride people have in joan to say she only exists to bang someone she hasn’t kissed, come close to kissing, or come close to even wanting to kiss in nearly 2 entire seasons

no seriously

Dear followers:

A real person at a real computer in the real world deliberately typed this up (aka, was not possessed, ghost-hacked, or nothing like that).

fr33lance:

Alt-text from XKCD: “I can’t remember where I heard this, but someone once said that defending a position by citing free speech is sort of the ultimate concession; you’re saying that the most compelling thing you can say for your position is that it’s not literally illegal to express.”

Onyx Queen: Heroine of the A train

eshusplayground:

At approximately eleven-thirty last night, passengers on the downtown A train in Washington Heights found themselves on an express ride of terror when three unknown assailants killed seven passengers and proceeded to hijack the train and speed it on a collision course toward the 4th Street—Washington Square station.

That is, until a woman described as wearing a black wetsuit, a black trench coat, and a white mask disarmed and neutralized the assailants then managed to safely stop the train at the 14th Street—8th Avenue station before disappearing as mysteriously as she came.

Just who was the heroine of the A train? Eyewitness accounts vary in their description of their savior.

"She was Black. Don’t let these white folks tell you different. She was Black."

"She was tall. Like, Wonder Woman tall."

"She had that tan like Italian or Greek or something. She might’ve been mixed."

"She wasn’t like a hobo or anything. She smelled nice. Her perfume had this sorta fruit flower type smell."

"She came up to right about here. So she had to be like five-two, five-three, tops. She was tiny."

 "She was Puerto Rican. How do I know? ‘Cuz fuckin’ everybody’s Puerto Rican."

Police are currently investigating the identities of the assailants.

“[Anthony] can be genial. He can be menacing. He can be sexy. He can do all of these things at the same time. I think he’s a very good actor, but I just don’t think that he’s had the film roles that he deserves. His success is limited by the imagination of the film industry. With really good actors, especially actors of color, the opportunities are fewer. Who will be brave enough to put him in a leading role instead of putting him in a supporting role?” Boston Globe film critic and Pulitzer Prize winner Wesley Morris on Mackie (UPTOWN magazine). 

Just for this, I’m tempted to make an Onyx Queen OC with him in mind. Namely, the genial and menacing at the same time part.

White people are used to getting to raise our voices. We’re so used to being heard that the possibility that maybe our opinions don’t need to be heard, that maybe we shouldn’t even be talking, much less raising our voices, doesn’t even occur to us.

But people who are trying to have useful discussions about how race affects them don’t actually need to hear from us. Expressing our opinion about race will do absolutely nothing to change their experience of racism.

Alan Rickman as Hans Gruber in Die Hard [1988]

I wanted this to be professional, efficient, adult, cooperative. Not a lot to ask. Alas, your Mr. Takagi did not see it that way… so he won’t be joining us for the rest of his life. We can go any way you want it. You can walk out of here or be carried out. But have no illusions. We are in charge. So, decide now, each of you. And please remember: we have left nothing to chance.

TransGriot: Why Y'all 'Scurred' Of Non-White Transpeople Owning Their Power?

Pro-tip: This is how to draw parallels between an oppression you face and one you don’t.

"I’ve never been [oppressed identity], but I have been [other identity] my whole life, so I can perhaps offer some insight from that perspective because there are many similar social issues regarding [issues]."

Confession: I am so sick of the phrase, “I acknowledge my [blank] privilege.”

So done with people knowing and acknowledging all over themselves instead of removing themselves from the fucking equation and letting the grown folks talk.

When people were in serious trouble they went to a witch.*

* Sometimes, of course, to say, “please stop doing it.

This made me think of Encanta.

Heheheheh. It do sound like something that happens on the island, don’t it?
