Dean slumped into his chair, glaring at Sam, his wings hanging low enough that the tips dragged on the ground.  He let his head fall back.  “I don’t want to get married.  I don’t want kids, I don’t want to deal with any of that bullshit, Sammy.”

I’m sure many of you have heard of the man who recently ran into the White House grounds and made it into the actual White House, right? Well, look at the following quotes from The Washington Post explaining why the Secret Service didn’t immediately shoot him:

So basically, if a man BREAKING INTO THE WHITE HOUSE doesn’t get shot, as long as he even seems like he’s unarmed (he wasn’t; he was carrying a knife), then how can Officer Wilson justify shooting an unarmed Mike Brown in Ferguson? I mean, if the goddamn Secret Service isn’t trigger-happy with potential assassins of the president, then how can Wilson explain the multiple shots he fired at a helpless black kid?

Those are questions that the Ferguson police force must answer. If deadly force isn’t immediately applicable against someone breaking into one of the most important buildings in the country in order to attack the president, then how is it applicable against an unarmed person just walking down a random public street? Mike Brown wasn’t breaking into anyone’s house, let alone the White House. Mike Brown wasn’t carrying a weapon, unlike the guy who attacked the White House. But Mike Brown still got shot to death. How does this make any sense?

The Ferguson police department sickens me. And this disparity is why.

The SECRET SERVICE doesn’t shoot people unless they’re actively appearing to be a threat.

BASIC-ASS WHITE COPS have got NO EXCUSE.

As much as I think what happened was a indescribable injustice, could we please leave race out of it?

But… it is about race? Believe me, I wish it weren’t, but it is.

Consider the following statistics from Operation Ghetto Storm for the year 2012, as posted on the Daily Kos:

image

The language of the above chart is a little confusing, but what it means is the % of black people killed by police, not the % of people killed by black police. However, in case you don’t want to trust just that one report alone about the disproportionate number of black people killed by police, check out this quote from USA Today:

Nearly two times a week in the United States, a white police officer killed a black person during a seven-year period ending in 2012, according to the most recent accounts of justifiable homicide reported to the FBI. […] The reports show that 18% of the blacks killed during those seven years were under age 21, compared to 8.7% of whites.

That’s why a black kid like Michael Brown was more likely to be shot and killed than, say, a white kid. More than twice as likely, in fact. 18% is more than twice as much as 8.7%.

Need even more proof? Here are some statistics from Mother Jones:

In 2007, ColorLines and the Chicago Reporter investigated fatal police shootings in 10 major cities, and found that there were a disproportionately high number of African Americans among police shooting victims in every one, particularly in New York, San Diego, and Las Vegas.

This handy figure (also from the above article) presents the data from New York, specifically:

image

And that’s not all. As Mother Jones states:

In Oakland, California, the NAACP reported that out of 45 officer-involved shootings in the city between 2004 and 2008, 37 of those shot were black. None were white. One-third of the shootings resulted in fatalities. Although weapons were not found in 40 percent of cases, the NAACP found, no officers were charged. […] When you look at the racial breakdown of New Yorkers, black people are disproportionately represented among those targeted as criminal shooting suspects, firearms arrestees, and those fired upon or struck by police gunfire.

Want even more numbers from the Bureau of Justice Statistics, itself? Check out how disproportionately high arrest-related deaths were among people of color from 2003-2009:

image

MORE PEOPLE OF COLOR DIED IN ARREST-RELATED DEATHS THAN WHITE PEOPLE, DESPITE THE FACT THAT THEY WERE MINORITIES.

Basically, despite being minorities, they had the majority of arrest-related deaths. Gettin’ spooked, yet?

That’s why this is a race issue. I mean, I completely understand the fervent desire for it to not be a race issue—most of us want to live in a world without racism—but sadly, it is a race issue. Ain’t no denying that. America still has a long way to go before achieving racial equality.

I discovered one of the reasons I’m not getting all of my asks. If you include an ellipsis (for those curious that’s three periods in a row [ … ] ) you HAVE to put a space right after it otherwise Tumblr will not send your ask.

Example of what NOT to do:

I’m really excited about the upcoming episode…what about you?

If you don’t put a space after those three periods your ask won’t send. My best suggestion is to just not use the ellipsis BUT if you do make sure to include a space after wards.

Fixed version that Tumblr will send:

I’m really excited about the upcoming episode… what about you?

So if you’re sending an ask to some remember to put a space after any ellipsis you use in your message or don’t use the ellipsis at all.

how could anybody be expected to magically deduce this?

It’s because they’re trying to avoid people linking things in asks. So they did the simplest thing they could think of. and erase all asks that involve a period directly followed by a letter. It’s massively annoying. One little mistype, and boom, no more ask.

But it can’t be that - or at least, not deliberately - because if you include a link in an ask it won’t let you send it, it’ll say ‘please don’t put links in an ask’ and let you edit. Maybe it’s the same code but it’s malfunctioning somehow on that particular combination of letters and just eating them without notice?

A Selk’nam couple with their baby, on a ship en route to be exhibited in Europe as “wildmen”. The Selk’nam people are an indigenous tribe in the Patagonian region of Southern Argentina and Chile. Both appear to have slight damage on their ankles from cruel, probably iron, restraints. 
The fear and confusion on their face is haunting. For people who had lived a simple hunting and gathering lifestyle, with little European interaction, the rest of their lives must’ve seemed like a surreal nightmare. 

White History

Abducted by aliens.

Smh

White history

I really want to know who these people are/what happened to them

SO I DID A BIT OF DIGGING AND HOLY SHIT. THE SELK’HAM PEOPLE WERE WIPED OUT IN A MASS GENOCIDE.
LIKE… THEY ARE NO MORE. THE DESCENDENTS OF THIS COUPLE DO NOT EXIST.
AN ENTIRE LANGUAGE. AN ENTIRE CUISINE. AN ENTIRE WAY OF LIFE. WIPED AWAY.
YA’LL WANT SOME FUCKING WHITE HISTORY MONTH? HERE IS SOME GOD DAMN WHITE HISTORY FOR YOU TO PUT NEXT TO ALL THOSE SHINNY IMAGES OF THESE WHITE MEN WHO “DISCOVERED THE WORLD”.
HANG THIS IMAGE IN ALL THE DAMN CLASSROOMS. I’M DONE.

But “NOT ALL WHITE PEOPLE”, right?
Fucking monsters.

I have never heard of these people.Their faces look racially unfamiliar to me.… that’d be why, then.

"It’s a really rich period in history, where this giant opposition we had going for 10 years with the Nazis is gone, and we’re not completely positive what the rules are anymore," Markus said. "Who gets the scientists? Who gets the secrets? It’s all on the table. Everyone developed these skills in World War II. People became spies, people became murderers. And suddenly the war was over, and they came back, and it’s like, ‘Wow, I know how to do some shit. Now, what do I do with this?’ It’s nice to play with that assortment of characters. An office, basically full of people who just came back from the war. There’s no telling what any of them experienced last year."

"We have a tendency to think of history as this fixed thing," McFeely added. “‘Oh, that’s right. Good guys won, 1945. Then it was the ’50s.’ It’s just not the case. Everything was up for grabs for quite a while, and murky. We didn’t know we really won."

Dear Markus & McFeely: No, please, make me more excited about where you’re taking this series. I insist. (Ohmygosh. If this is written half as well as I’m hoping it is…)

YES ffs this is how one writes ‘in the moment’ history when you don’t know how everything is going to work out oh help am I going to have to get into this series too?

Guys, let me tell you about orcas.
Orca whales are mean motherfuckers. They cruise the oceans with only two things in mind: one, having sex, and two, eating every poor fuck they find out there that’s smaller than them. They are such badass motherfuckers that even great white motherfucking sharks don’t dare fuck with them, which in my books, places them above the sperm whale as Biggest Badass of the Ocean. And why don’t sharks bother them, you may wonder? Because orcas fucking learned that if you flip a shark over they go into a sort of coma, so now they do it intentionally so they can eat the motherfucking sharks. Not only that, but orcas have also learned how to hunt sperm whales and motherfucking sea birds.
The orca whale lives in a matriarchal pod. Every pod has unique hunting methods and whatnot, which is passed down from parent to offspring- these scary fuckers have formed civilizations. And what do they do for fun, apart from hopping around on the water’s surface and grinning like crazy mofos? They hunt for fun, going so far as to tip over ice floes and beach themselves just for the thrill of killing.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. Orca whales are too damn cute and smiley looking to be heartless predators of the sea. Well, let me counter-argue with this photo:

THOSE ARE NOT THE TEETH OF A CREATURE THAT WANTS TO BE YOUR FRIEND.

Why has nobody mentioned what’s happening in the original gif?
This is how orcas hunt - or, it’s one of the ways they do. They have a ton of tricks and techniques they use to fuck up everything below them on the food chain, and that gif portrays my personal favorite.
Orcas will literally BEACH THEMSELVES to grab unsuspecting seals (or whatever else happens to be splashing around in the surf) and snarf them down like hot dogs. Yeah, that’s right. This is a 6-ton apex predator, crashing right out of the fucking water to snatch their prey right off the beach. Any other animal that size would get stuck there and die, but do you see that fucker? He fucking wriggles right back into the surf. An orca can get all the way up onto dry land and still manage to wiggle their way back into the water to fuck up more shit on another day. There is literally no other sea-dwelling creature of comparative size with that ability - most sea animals lack the muscular strength to move without enough water supporting their weight.
Orcas have also been known to eat moose. Yeah, that’s right. Fucking MOOSE.
You don’t fuck with orcas.

and please dont fuckin put them in small chlorine tanks like wtf get those motherfuckers back into the ocean away from children

I’m glad someone has already mentioned the small tank thing otherwise I would have.
And for all that, wild orcas have never fatally attacked humans. Let’s be clear on that.

… well, yes, but, re the original gif:That orca could have grabbed that baby seal if it had wanted to. That orca is having fun - practising, or giggling over giving it a startle, or possibly just spitting on it. Or it might be doing the other thing they do sometimes. Because some orcas will grab a baby seal to toss around in the waves for fun and practice. And then (assuming it hasn’t died of heart failure in the meantime), they will carefully put it back on the beach. Compassion? Safer snack storage? Your call.
