pretty sure this happened before

ask me a question   about me   fanfic   sometimes i write other stuff   

Tahirah. 22. Bermudian. Cis-Female. Asexual. Black. Sort of: writer, singer, knitter, crotchet-er
I enjoy beautiful men, lovely women, puppies, owls and kittens. I won't turn down an otter or hedgehog either. I also enjoy good food, good music and good movies. TV shows ain't bad either. I like cute things and hot things and have a love of explosions.
I do not enjoy things that are cruel or the more horrendous side of ridiculous. IE racism, sexism, classism, shit like that...
I try to tag things that are triggering, but you should still let me know if something bugs you. I'm not that much of a jerk.

okayla asked: How's Maryland? I'm bored and miss you!


Answer:

Its okay. Better than expected but pretty similar to my more hopeful thoughts. I feel like my cuz might be genderqueer. IDK. She’s as masculine as ever. Not a bad thing justjust different especially considering my aunt is no longer trying to make her more fem. My aunt is better. She is still stressed and what seems to be our family’s hereditary joint/bone/back/neck issues have got her. She’s dealing with the same thing my mom was before her surgery, just in a different place. I’m super bored and miss you too. Well not super bored but I’m used to slightly more social interaction than I’m getting and considering my present company…. I miss chew and beaches and liquor… I’m so sad. I bought a couple of games and my tablet, and there free WiFi, so that’s helpful, but still.

As emotional as the Hobbit trailer was though, I love how it tried to be dramatic about who would die and who would survive.

Would Bilbo survive?

Would Legolas survive?

Would Gandalf survive?

It’s a mystery!

I dont understand why, for a girl to be considered badass and strong in movies and books, she has to be tomboyish, not wear makeup and not like girly things?

Girls should be allowed to put on lipstick and flowery dresses then conquer the world by crushing the necks of their enemies under their 6 inch heels

it’s so interesting to me that ‘genre’ fiction (fantasy and sci-fi) gets dismissed as unrealistic and less legitimate than non-‘genre’ fiction when it has some of the highest rates of female protagonists (especially in YA) and is largely watched/read by women

like what’s really unrealistic? is it the dragons, or is it the fact that for once people are interested in something other than the rise and fall of middle-aged white dudes

America Street, House of the Future
corners of America and Reid Streets
Charleston, SC, USA
Artist: David Hammons
overview of site for “House of the Future”
About this project: The artist selected a poor east side neighborhood to create a two-part work. He replaced a billboard image which promoted cigarettes and featured blacks, with his photograph of local children looking forward and upward toward a flag at the end of the park. He also constructed, with neighborhood help, a Charleston house that is smaller than normal scale. It represents, among other things, pride in the area’s old homes and in the past.

Literally all she did was point out misognyistic tropes in a video games, and this is the aftermath. Men continually prove feminism correct and necessary.

When grandpa Horst walked into the Best Friends adoption center, a cat with only one eye caught his attention. Just like the cat, grandpa Horst can only see through one eye.
“Horst and Mimi bonded at the Best Friends Pet Adoption Center in Salt Lake City just a few weeks ago,” Best Friends Animal Society – Utah wrote. After meeting Mimi, he knew right away that that was the cat for him.
“You can’t see out of your right eye, and I can’t see out of my left, but together we can see the world,” Horst said to his furry companion in his home in Colorado.
“My grandfather and Mimi are truly happy together! I haven’t seen him this happy in years,” said Horst’s granddaughter Heather.

2014 was one of those years that started out like “THIS IS GOING TO BE GREAT!!!” and its halfway through and we have a war going on, a deadly disease has been spread, countless shootings have happened, racism is alive, more people have been leaving living things inside of hot cars, and robin williams is fucking dead

What a time to be alive…

Every Tuesday night at 9pm EST there is an excellent twitter chat called #HipHopEd . Last night’s topic was, ‘What Is Hip Hop’s Role In The School To Prison Pipeline?’ I used this time to breakdown the connection between hip hop and private prisons, which fuel the School To Prison Pipeline.

While hip hop is not solely and directly responsible for the School To Prison Pipeline, it definitely plays a role as those who control what we listen to and see, invest in private prisons.

CCA is the Corrections Corporation of America, they are the oldest & largest private prison company in the United States. Not only have they capitalized on the failed war on drugs by housing drug offenders, they also found a way to bring in new revenue by incarcerating undocumented immigrants.

GEO is the second largest private prison company in the U.S. and has facilities in the UK, Australia and south Africa.

When we dig into the financials, investments & shareholders of media conglomerates and private prisons, we begin to see some familiar names. Vanguard is one name that comes up frequently as their hands dip in both media interests AND private prisons. Not only is Vanguard the largest shareholder in CCA, they are also the largest shareholder in GEO. When you hold as much stock as Vanguard, it is easy to assume, and rightfully so, that there is enough power to decide what we see and hear on the radio and tv. 

We all know that Viacom owns VH1, BET & MTV, so we see what type of programming comes out of those channels. Again, this is not to say that hip hop is the cause of the school to prison pipeline or mass incarceration, but it does help fuel it and it certainly invests in it. These connections between investors in private prisons & media are proof.

*I know you all are sticklers for wording, so let me say that filling the radio stations with music that glamorizes criminal lifestyles and drug use is only ONE of MANY ways to help fill prisons when crime rates are down & companies like CCA are requiring 90% occupancy*

As always, please don’t take anything that I blog on here for fact. These are my truths as I have researched for myself, now I urge you to do the same. I have posted some links to help get you started. Let’s continue to learn and educate ourselves and others so we can work collectively to dismantle the the prison industrial complex!
