My friend is leaving for Austria next week, he’s had people stopping by to say goodbye all day and just had Harry Potter on in the background. My kind of going away party.
Marvel's current Mighty Avengers might be the weirdest comic I've ever seen in a while. I'm not reading it and I never will, because it's as hypocritical as it gets. With the insane amount of black characters on the roster (almost every single black superhero in the Marvel universe is in the team) it's obviously meant for black people. Not for white people. Not for asians. Not for hindus. Not for martians. Only for black people. It's ... it's ... it's ****ing racist!
So you’re not reading it, and you never will, but you profess to know what it’s all about?
That seems a strange way to gather such information!
Plus, you’re simply wrong here. As you’d know if you read an issue.
But therein lies the madness.
If it’s not the book for you, that’s perfectly fine. Not every comic is for every reader.
But MIGHTY AVENGERS is meant for all readers.
This kind of thing wears on a person’s spirit. This was written by a real human being.
Now don’t talk to me about “well that’s superhero comics, blah blah blah.” We all breathe the same air as this anonymous person and we share soil and water with this person. This person is in our world and for all we know, *we might know them*
And they have decided that a comic book has too many black characters. They’ve decided this because to them, “racism” is when more than one or two non-white characters (and extrapolating thus: people) actually exist in the same place at the same time.
This is also how racism manifests. The insistence that our very existence is an intrusion.
Nicki Minaj is an excellent and dynamic rapper, lyrically and stylistically, she’s topped charts in a male dominated space, she started from the absolute bottom and knows how to hustle and work her image, I don’t care whether you care for her style of music or not but if you dismiss her as a trash artist I’m gonna heavily side eye you
Stop making books into films and start making them into a tv show so we could have a lot more detail to them and they can stick to the book easier.
here let me give you some examples of why this is also a bad idea:
pretty little liars
game of thrones
like yeah, they have the opportunity to do so much more, but they always change everything so muhc after thr first season.
Update, 4:30 p.m.: The ACLU, responding to BuzzFeed's Chris Geidner on Twitter, says that the officer involved in the incident described above has been removed from duty following a public ACLU complaint.
this is great and all but lets observe the fact that the moment a WHITE journalist is threatened, action is taken…while Michael Brown’s murderer still walks freely and the police officers threatening the lives of black people/hitting them with tear gas and rubber bullets are still on the clock
Unfriendly reminder that in America it’s reasonable to say an unarmed black kid deserved to be shot six times because he might have robbed a convenience store, but a white kid shouldn’t be kicked off the high school football team just because he violently raped a girl.

"I’m used to seeing female bodies perfected and aspects concealed in the media (i.e. in hair removal ads for women hair is never shown). I wasn’t surprised when TMZ requested to interview me about my t-shirt but then cancelled because the image was “too explicit for television” – whereas during Rihanna’s abuse scandal her beaten up face was broadcasted hundreds of times. […] I’m used to hearing the top played songs on the radio tell me “I know you want it – just let me liberate you”, “You don’t know you’re beautiful, that’s what makes you beautiful”, “Put molly all in her champagne / She ain’t even know it / I took her home and I enjoyed that / She ain’t even know it”. […] I’m used to seeing reviews of an award show performance that critiques a female singer for being “slutty” but then fails to even mention the older male behind her. I’m used to reading articles about whole towns harassing a rape victim until she’s forced to leave. I don’t want to be used to this."
At a deposition, Ferguson’s former police chief revealed that his staff did not keep records of incidents in which officers used force against citizens, so long as no one died; in other words, there was no way of telling how often incidents like Davis’ happened.
remember shit like this when they talk about how mike brown’s shooter had no disciplinary record
