    sometimes derby makes me want to explode

    The helmet cover rules aren’t that complex.  Jammers and pivots can touch dropped jammer covers, pivots can touch pivot covers.

    That’s not complex.  Neither are star passes, people just fuck them up.  You have to be upright and in bounds, and the jammer has to release the cover INTO the pivot’s hands.

    That’s it.  That’s all.  (Sorry I’m just grumpy about rules right now)

    I woke up wanting to draw something today. I think I’m going to do that.

    The head of the Missouri Highway Patrol says his officers are preparing for the worst if protesters react violently to the results of the grand jury investigation of Ferguson Police Officer Darren Wilson.

    Colonel Ron Replogle told reporters in Columbia that officers are taking special training to prepare for possible unrest.
     
    The state has also ordered more riot shields and is limiting vacation time for officers.
     
    Ferguson Police Chief Jackson told News 4 that agencies with the Unified Command Force are planning together. 
     
    Chief Jackson had planned to visit various sites in Ferguson today, including the Canfield Apartments where Michael Brown was shot and killed on August 9, to personally extend his apologies for the incident.
     
    However, those visits have been cancelled following Thursday night’s unrest in Ferguson.

    The cops are prepping.

    Reporting of incident where this man fucking forcibly ran into @bdoulaoblongata with his walker while saying he is Darren Wilson. Protestors were protesting this location because owner stopped allowing black patrons to enter, only white patrons and pulled a gun out on protestors.

    Video clips of him allowing white patrons only and locking door to come.

    White people are sick

PREACH!! Funny how they pathologized enslaved peoples desire to runaway and engage in other forms of resistance. Well said!


Labor and slavery are inextricably linked in the US.  More than that, while I don’t know of it off the top of my head, I would be very surprised if labor actions didn’t draw inspiration from slave resistance.Unions have had really fucked up racist issues for long stretches of their history, but that has never stopped white people from stealing ideas before, I don’t know why this would be different.

    Anonymous said: It terrifies me how Emma Watson gave a speech on feminism that was so carefully geared not to offend the sensibilities of men, and they still threatened her with violence and exposure in a horrifying way. These men don't hate feminism, they hate women plain and simple

    I think it’s a defining moment in the radicalization of young women when they realize men, as a class, absolutely and violently hate them.

This is potentially life saving information everyone should know.

No you guys this post helped me find my cat. He was missing for almost a month and I’ve had him for over 12 years. After seeing this I put his favorite blanket he always slept on outside hoping he would smell mine or his scent and he was back the next fucking day asleep on it.

When my cat got out, we called and called for him, and then, later that night, I remembered similar advice to this, and so put his little scratching pad, which he adores, on the front porch. Not even half an hour later, I heard a thump, opened the door, and there was his big butt, meowing at me.

Important and vital

    San Francisco Chinese Restaurant Temporarily Closes Because White Gentrifiers are Annoying and Entitled

    A series of customer complaints angered the chef-owner of the small Chinese restaurant so much that he chose to shut the doors, albeit, temporarily, SF Eater reports.

    “We are closed because of you (customers),” one sign read.

    “So…yes we use MSG, we don’t believe in organic food, and we don’t give a shit about gluten free,” a sign directly below the first proclaims.

    The chef tells KGO-TV that he made the signs because he was tired of catering too hard to satisfy patrons.

    To illustrate his frustration, he explained one of the incidents that led to the closure:

    “The second guy came up to me and said, ‘The rule is, if we don’t like it we don’t have to pay.’ And as he walked out he started cursing at me and that’s when I went ‘poof’,” the chef says.

    An employee with the restaurant told the SF Eater that another incident occurred just prior. In that case, the party refused to pay for their meals after saying the food was “too spicy.”

    (To quickly address the stigmatization of MSG- it is racist bullshit)

    ugh!!!

    What the entire fuck

    HAPPENING NOW (9.24.14): The situation in Ferguson is escalating quickly. Protests continue, following this morning’s burning of a Mike Brown memorial, and another frustrating Ferguson City Council meeting.Looks like the same “antagonize over de-escalate” tactics are back online. Prayers to all those out in the street of Ferguson right now fighting for their right to exist. #staywoke #farfromover (PT IPT IIPT III)  

    Bringing back the dogs, choppers, charging the crowd, attempting to bottleneck protesters into an area, AND live shots possible fired into the crowd… what the ever-living fuck is Ferguson PD trying to do?! We’re a month and a half into this saga, and they still don’t know how to de-escalate a situation. Pray y’all. That might be all we got right now.

    Don’t let this die.

    I love how folks will watch horror movies, understand why it would be scary to have:

    - Threatening messages painted on the wall

    - Threatening phone calls happen out of nowhere

    - People sneaking into your home/on your property

    - Your property or belongings damaged, destroyed, or…

During WWII, Japanese American soldiers were among the first to liberate the Nazi concentration camp in Dachau, Germany. “U.S military commanders decided it would be bad public relations if Jewish prisoners were freed by Japanese American soldiers whose own families were imprisoned in American concentration camps,” therefore, these Japanese American soldiers who liberated hundreds of Jews are missing in our history lessons.

Wow. 

See, that implies that our history lessons actually talk about the fact that our government put Japanese Americans IN camps - and that by our silence we LET them. We condoned it. That’s on the heads of every white person who stood silently by and said nothing.
Also, yeah, not regularly taught.
