Kristen Stewart, Zooey Deschanel, Jennifer Aniston, Katherine Heigl, Blake Lively and a whole flurry of mediocre white actresses (who btw play the same roles OVER AND OVER) are always offered roles. Meanwhile, Oscar nominated/winning black actresses (who have won other awards prestigious as well) are struggling to remain relevant. Just because there are a lot of black led TV shows coming this fall, that doesn’t mean the struggle is over or lessening. Many of these actresses have had to move onto TV roles or do both because they haven’t been offered enough (or appropriate) roles.

This is it. This is truly the most horrifying image humanity has ever created. This is the downfall of all that we have ever known, all of our hopes and dreams, our very way of life.

CNN’s video explaining the referendum on independence today in Scotland opened with a clip from Braveheart and included a map that just forgot about Wales

I can’t count the number of times my mom, invariably being asked the where are you from question (though she’s lived here more than half her life) answers Bangladesh, and then is faced with the “no waay” or “are you sure?” because of her light skin and angular features.

I’ve even heard someone actually say, “but Bangladeshi’s are usually darker!”

Anonymous said: Why isn't there a muslim outrage about the persecution of non Muslims in Africa & the Middle East? You're all a bunch of savages.

pax-arabica:

You’re totally right.

I don’t know why we didn’t get orders from the great Muslamic hive-mind on what to think today. I usually share my brainwaves with every Muslim on the planet, so that we can all act the same way and all have one position on any issue.

Maybe there are technical difficulties at Muslim HQ™? You know, where all the Muslim decisions come from, for all the Muslims in the world.

All I got was my regular programming, you know…world domination, hating freedom, shuurriyaah law.

I’m sorry, I truly can’t answer you without further Muslim HQ™ discretion. I’ll just go take my daily Hummus shower with my Falafel scented soap and hope things get sorted out during it.

But you’re right. We should be civilized like you and call 23% of the whole planet savages and treat them as a homogenous blob with no humanity.

Police shoot teenage special-needs girl within 20 seconds of arriving to ‘help’

On June 3rd, 2014, the Serrano family was having difficulty with a young female family member who suffers from a mental illness and depression. Yanira Serrano-Garcia, 18, had apparently gone off of her medication and became agitated and hard to control.
“[Yanira] wanted to be normal. She wanted to stop taking her medication, and I get it. Sometimes when my feet hurt I just want to be normal. I don’t want to take pills. I get her…all we want is justice,” said a friend of Yanira’s during a community march. 
“Sadly, they mistook her for something she didn’t do, and a cop decided to get his gun out when he could have gotten out his taser, his pepper spray,” she said.
“She has special needs and we just want answers,” said Yanira’s brother, Tiny Serrano. “Who are we supposed to call now when we need help when who is supposed to help us is killing our kids?”
