White people are ghouls

Savages.

This bothered me all morning. The idea that I live near people like this has been hanging over me for weeks and has literally leeched the energy and spirit from me. 

But when I went to Google to learn more about what happened, it turned out that the bar was not advertising this. Instead, a customer wrote it and he was then thrown out the bar and banned for life.

The bar owner went on to say that he had a half-black son.

And that they ”drove through Ferguson yesterday and [he] … would be the last person to joke about Michael Brown.”

This alone doesn’t fix things. Someone still wrote those awful things on that sign. But hearing the rest of this story does make me feel a little less terrible.

Because what I really need to see more of right now is proof that people aren’t as awful as I’m starting to believe they are.

Racism 101: Understanding the dog whistles

odinsblog:

undeniably-incomprehensible:

odinsblog:

Listen, when Republicans say “secure the border” what they’re really saying is “CLOSE the *southern* border”…as in 100% Completely. Seal. It. Off…to all the black and brown bodies

Please understand: they won’t be satisfied with anything less than that

No. No. No. They mean secure the border from illegal immigration. Not from black people or brown people or purple people or yellow or green. They mean make sure anyone coming through should legally be there. Not anyone banned from US territories, not anyone with drugs (though that is getting out of hand), not anyone with highly infectious diseases, or invasive species, or anything else that would be destructive. If you’re going to diss on Republicans, at least tell the truth. Lord knows there is a LOT of material.

You are 400% full of shit

So…human beings coming across the sOuThErN bOaRdEr are the ooonly ones with “infectious diseases” and “invasive species” and “destructive”???

Do I have that right?

Ok then…PLEASE do explain to me why BIRD FLU didn’t come to America via the dreaded southern boarder? That’s an “infectious disease” isn’t it?

OR could it be you didn’t bother to list any CONCRETE EXAMPLES to back up any of the utter bs you’re trying to sell because you don’t actually have any, you xenophobic piece of shit

And does it really matter if those starving little CHILDREN are bringing any diseases with them? They aren’t, but s2g I almost wish they were —I got all my vaccination shots up to date, but maybe some “infectious disease” would thin out some of those AMERICAN anti-vaxers who like exposing other people to their unvaccinated children’s diseases. Yeah, outbreaks of ~*completely preventable*~ diseases like whooping cough and measles didn’t come across the dreaded southern border…those came from right here in the U.S. of A. by willfully ignorant AMERICANS who refuse to vaccinate even their own children

SN: Guatemalan and South American children are far more likely to be completely vaccinated than children in Texas. In fact, measles outbreaks have resurged in some American cities. By contrast, according to the World Health Organization, neither Guatemala nor Honduras has had a reported case of measles since 1990

Blaming “infectious diseases” on immigrants and their children is a very old and a very racist trope. Try again, bigot

Moving on…what “invasive species” are you talking about? Specifically? Let me rephrase that —did you seriously mean to imply that after crossing a desert and nearly dying of heatstroke, starvation, thirst and dehydration, these little 8yr old KIDS somehow managed to keep a prohibited potted plant alive during their ordeal??? Does that sound completely absurd to you? Because if it doesn’t, it really should

And as far as drugs getting out of hand..? That’s a DEMAND driven business. As in *American* demand. But trust me, I really don’t think the child refugees and asylum seekers —who are literally seeking out uniformed border patrol agents to turn themselves in to when they finally make it here— I don’t think that they’re carrying drugs on them since that might put a kink in their asylum plans, so that’s another part of your bs “argument” shot down

And as far as “destructive”…I’ll remind you that none of the 9/11 hijackers crossed the southern border…they all lightened their skin & hair specifically because they *knew* simple minded racist assholes just like YOU would be busy perpetually staring at the southern border. Not even from this country, but they were fully aware of the depths of your “soft” racism and bigotry, and knew exactly how to use it against simps like you

And funny how we never seem to have these discussions about disease, invasive plants and drugs when WHITE Serbians, Russians or Cubans flee to America. 😒 Literally the *only* thing that magically makes people crossing the *southern* border more “infectious” or diseased than anyone else is your ignorance and racism. That’s all

FACT: The US/Mexico border is more secure today than it’s ever been at any point in American history, and anyone—ANYONE—willing to risk crossing a desert, sex trafficking, murder, enslavement, rape, torture, imprisonment and more…anyone who risks all of THAT deserves a fair shot at asylum and U.S. citizenship

They certainly couldn’t be any worse of a citizen than you appear to be

Deconstructing Masculinity & Manhood with Michael Kimmel @ Dartmouth College

This is an important message on how privilege really works.

it’s good to remember that we shouldn’t only define ourselves by our marginalized identities. for example I am cis, I am middle class, I am educated, I speak English, I am a documented citizen—remember all of those identities you possess that give you privilege.

“You fool. No man can kill me.”

How many times am I allowed to reblog this before it gets weird?

Fun facts: Tolkien constructed this scene because he came out of Macbeth thinking that Shakespeare had missed a golden opportunity with the ”Be bloody, bold, and resolute; laugh to scorn the power of man, for none of woman born shall harm Macbeth” prophecy

Being letdown by Macbeth is apparently a significant factor in Tolkien’s writing because the Ent/Huorn attack on Isengard was the result of his disappointment that the whole “til Birnam Wood come to Dunsinane” thing was just some dudes holding sticks and not actual ambulatory trees.

so he basically took his favorite shakespeare headcanons and put them into his AU fic

This revelation just knocked me over.

LET ME TELL YOU A THING ABOUT JOHN RONALD REUEL TOLKIEN. BACK THE FUCK UP SIT THE FUCK DOWN YOU KNOW NOTHING ABOUT ANYTHING YOU’RE FUCKING JON SNOW HERE. LET ME TELL U A THING

JONNY T WAS LITERALLY THE BIGGEST FANBOY TO EVER WALK THE EARTH. LITERALLY THIS FUCKIN NERD WENT INTO WORLD WAR ONE AND WROTE NORSEFIC EDDA FANFIC IN THE TRENCHES AND SENT IT TO ALL HIS FRIENDS WHO WERE PRESUMABLY LIKE “JOHN WHAT THE FUCK”

BUT IT DOESN’T END THERE

HIS WIFE? MADE HER AND HIMSELF INTO SELF-INSERT OCS IN SAID FIC. ALSO MADE HIMSELF A TOTAL TYR SELF INSERT CHARACTER. ALL VERY DRAMATIC. KEPT WRITING THIS FIC UNTIL IT WAS HUGE. AFTER HE DIED HIS SON PUBLISHED IT AND CALLED IT THE SILMARILLION. JRR YOU FUCKIN NERD

WAIT I’M NOT FUCKING DONE YET. TREEBEARD? BASED THE WAY HE TALKED OF HIS OLD FRIEND JACK WHO YOU ALL MIGHT KNOW AS CS LEWIS. THAT’S RIGHT. THAT NARNIA MOTHERFUCKER. WROTE HIM INTO LORD OF THE RINGS AKA THE SEQUEL TO THE SEQUEL OF HIS ORIGINAL FANFIC MASTERPIECE. CS LEWIS FUCKING HATED LORD OF THE RINGS. TOLKIEN FUCKING HATED NARNIA. BASICALLY THEY STARTED THE OXFORD PROFESSOR LIVEJOURNAL CLUB AND THEY FLAMED EACH OTHER’S SHIT RELENTLESSLY YET REMAINED BFFS

SHELOB? FUCKING TARANTULA BIT J-TIDDY ON THE FOOT WHEN HE WAS LIKE 3. WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS.

HIS AUNT’S HOUSE? NAMED BAG END. YEAH YOU GUESSED IT WROTE IT INTO LORD OF THE RINGS

THIS FUCKING DORKUS SUPREME MADE UP HIS OWN LANGUAGE. WAIT NO IM WRONG. HE MADE UP LIKE 80 LANGUAGES AND DIALECTS AND ALPHABETS AND SHIT 

BEST PART OF ALL?? HIS OWN LAST NAME, TOLKIEN, WAS DERIVED FROM THE GERMAN “TOLKHUN” MEANING “FOOLHARDY”. DOES THAT RING A BELL TO ANYONE FAMILIAR TO LORD OF THE RINGS??? BECAUSE YOU SHOULD KNOW THAT PEREGRIN “PIPPIN” TOOK’S LIKE FUCKING CATCHPHRASE WAS “FOOL OF A TOOK”. TOLKIEN FIC’D HIS OWN FAMILIAL LINGUISTIC HISTORY INTO HIS WORK WHAT A DWEEB

IN 2008 HE RANKED 6TH ON A LIST OF THE TOP 50 BRITISH WRITERS SINCE 1945. HE WAS A PROFESSOR OF LANGUAGES AND OTHER IMPORTANT STUFFY SHIT AT OXFORD

AND JRR TOLKIEN WAS THE BIGGEST DWEEB EVER TO LIVE

THE END

Hey there chickadees, if you want to help stop unsourced reposted art there is something pretty simple you can do.

  • When you’re in the /search/tag (instead of the tagged/tag) there’s a little white flag on the top right corner of each post. Click that sucker.
  • Then check “This violates Tumblr’s Community Guidelines” and that list will appear.
  • Check “Misattribution or non-attribution” which means it isn’t sourced.
  • The “Ignore url of person you’re flagging” is checked by default. So, uncheck that if you don’t want to ignore them.
  • Hit the orange flag button and you’re done.

It would be awesome if you helped.

And if you want to reblog the art but can’t find the artist’s post or a source, send the picture to me and I’ll help you find it (any fandom whatever I mostly do hijack though). You can link me or send me the picture here.
