If White People Were Described Like People Of Color In Literature

You know something. This isn’t even a joke. I don’t know if white people truly TRULY pay attention to his authors describe POC characters. We’re always associated with a food (albeit delicious ones) but when you think about it is so gross….

You never see white descriptions like this. You always see words like “ethereal, angelic ,alabaster skin.”..etc etc.

Tuh.

Didn’t tumblr make this list happen?

Lmao this is perfect uncooked chicken breast

"

In the post-World War II era, the Klan experienced a huge resurgence. Its membership was skyrocketing, and its political influence was increasing, so Kennedy went undercover to infiltrate the group. By regularly attending meetings, he became privy to the organization’s secrets. But when he took the information to local authorities, they had little interest in using it. The Klan had become so powerful and intimidating that police were hesitant to build a case against them.

Struggling to make use of his findings, Kennedy approached the writers of the Superman radio serial. It was perfect timing. With the war over and the Nazis no longer a threat, the producers were looking for a new villain for Superman to fight. The KKK was a great fit for the role.

In a 16-episode series titled “Clan of the Fiery Cross,” the writers pitted the Man of Steel against the men in white hoods. As the storyline progressed, the shows exposed many of the KKK’s most guarded secrets. By revealing everything from code words to rituals, the program completely stripped the Klan of its mystique. Within two weeks of the broadcast, KKK recruitment was down to zero. And by 1948, people were showing up to Klan rallies just to mock them.

Take a listen. It’s pretty cool. YouTube’s got all sixteen episodes on it. It’s not Shakespeare, but I liked it.

Isn’t it amazing how nobody ever listens to Elrond

Elrond’s like that one guy in all the movies and shit who’s just ‘don’t do the thing’ and everyone else is just ‘Shut the fuck up. What do you know?!’ and then later on it turns out they shouldn’t have done the thing..

Elrond would survive a horror movie

Elrond has already survived several horror movies.

Damn straight.

Elrond is Cassandra

This is the one time of year that I love wasps.
Not because the wasps themselves get any nicer. They’re horrid little creatures year round. No, it’s because I have a couple of big apple trees out back, and late August, early September is when the apples start ripening.
Now, if you don’t harvest your own fruit, there are two things you need to know about apples.
The first thing you need to know about apples is that, when apples get ripe, they tend to fall from the tree at the slightest breeze.
I often work late at the office; by the time I get home, there are piles of apples scattered everywhere - and sure enough, the wasps are out in force, gorging themselves on the fruit. When I go to clean up the windfallen apples, the wasps naturally do the “rawr, I’ma fuck you up!” routine for which wasps are known.
The second thing you need to know about apples is that they ferment very rapidly in the late August heat.
So: the wasps try to come at me, but they’re too drunk to fly. They get about an inch off the ground, then faceplant directly into the turf, flip over onto their backs, and lay there, legs twitching in the air as they try in vain to find something to sting.
Perhaps I’m a man of simple pleasures, but I bust up laughing every. single. time.
Fucking wasps.

Newborn baby stuns doctors by holding her own bottle (in the UK)

A baby girl has amazed doctors with her ability to hold her own feeding bottle. Two-week-old Ammra was able to grasp her bottle alone just three days after she was born at Queen’s Hospital, Romford in Essex, her mother Onyi Chiedozie said.The 20-year-old, who is using a combination of breast and bottle feeding, said doctors and nurses were stunned by the baby’s ability to master her strong grip so soon after she was born.

this baby is gonna be a brain surgeon when she’s like 10

For people who are like big deal, she held a cup.

My nephew didn’t hold a bottle till he was like one.  Most babies don’t know how to process gravity or the concept of if you grip the bottle it stays close to you where you can suckle it and if you tilt it back the liquid is accessible and it’s a lot to process for a baby okay.

This baby is way ahead in neuromuscular and cognitive development. She’s one of the xmen probably, it’s really amazing, the equivalent of a baby saying it’s first word at 2 months old ok it’s really amazing

no you guys i work with babies from ages 3months-2.5  years and lemme tell you about 90% of our kids couldn’t hold their own bottles until they were about a year. the fact that this girl can do it so easily is such an important thing.

Ahhh this is neaaaat. Also SHES SO CUUUUTE :D

#Ferguson

reservoircat:

I’ve reblogged a lot about Ferguson and how horrible the situation is there. I have no information about what is going on there, but I do have a little tidbit about how it’s effecting people here in Nashville.

On school last Wednesday, Will had his students right little bios of themselves: favorite colors, favorite foods, best superheroes. And what they want to be when they grow up. 

One little boy, Sebastian (who imo looks just like tiny Pharell Williams) wrote that he wanted to be a police officer.

This Monday, he came back to school. He came up to Will looking embarrassed and asking if he could have his homework back to change his answers. He said he was watching the news with his Mom and Dad that weekend.

He didn’t want to be a cop anymore. He’s terrified of them now.

He’s 6 years old :(
