This thread omg

“ My work is done here” “but you haven’t done anythi-” “*leaves*”

Hey that’s not true. She annoyed and inconvienced a tired mother of two who made a completely understandable mistake.

What’s understandable about not bringing something that BOTH your kids could enjoy? Or bringing one of each thing your kids could enjoy.


What’s understandable about catering to a boy exactly??

Things children do: change their minds on a whim and forget to tell you what they want

Things tired mom’s do: rush out of the house to get somewhere on time and forget things

You and I read the same thing and yet here you are with this “children change their mind.” and “mom forgets things.”


Yes what you said happens in general but from the info we have that’s not what happened here.

Okay but as the boy was revealed to like the films as well, this was clearly an excuse the mother used to cover up a mistake she made and calm down the daughter.

“clearly” okay.

Sorry wrong phrase I meant “most likely”

Why though? We already know boys are catered to in society so why are you sure it’s more likely. It’s equally likely she’s doing one o the other even subconsciously .

This is ridiculous.if an innocent black guy get shot by police thats a crime and those officers who do it should be dealt with like anyone else.But you cant have riots about a criminal black guy getting shot.what confuses me is if you ask the crips if black lives matter if it was a rival gang?far more black guys get killed in black on black gang crime than cops.the media feeds always focusses on the exception.all white people arent crazed gun toting people just because of stephen paddock.just like all black people arent criminals because of the actions of of gangs.all muslims aren’t terrorists because of a few radicals.its kinda ironic all the people getting politically active are saying things that they have no idea what they mean.Ben shapiro called a nazi white supremacist is the most retarded thing I’ve ever heard.people voted for trump because they were fed up of the crooked government.now that crooked government is using the people to gain its control.because someone wants change doesnt make them a white supremacist.plus are black people who voted for trump white supremacists?hillary clinton was against same sex marriage,is she not a bigot?.A country who goes around the world so insulted by countries not being democratic but yet a democratic election causes chaos.infact the only non democratic act was hillary clinton fucking over bernie sanders not to mention the whole getting away with posessing top secret documents and getting away with a crime others have been jailed for.both candidates aren’t people you would want to run a country.As bad as trump is he looks like an angel compared to clinton.if both sides actually had an informed discussion you will realize you both have the same enemy.the crooked government controlling the broken political system.

-You’re wild. You realize the guy that murdered Akai Gurley the police officer got off for it right. He was CLEARLY in the wrong and he got off he was found guilty which means he should have been in jail and the judge and whoever else vacated that sentence for something lesser. [https://www.google.com/amp/www.nydailynews.com/amp/new-york/brooklyn/ex-nypd-peter-liang-spared-jail-death-akai-gurley-article-1.2607310]

-We can have marches and protest over Black criminals being shot over Black criminals being killed [Freddie Gray] because we see quite often that cops react differently to white criminals vs black ones. Criminals have rights too. I’d be fine not protesting if it was equal treatment across the board but it’s not and if you can’t agree it’s fucked up I don’t know what to say to you other than you’re a horrible person.

-Majority of mass shooters have been white men and yeah they are the majority of the population but the statistics don’t match up with other mass shooters of colors and demographics. Why are they seemingly more prone to this shit than the rest of us?

-I’m still not convinced she did something illegal but let’s say she did. Her not getting punished could be an example of white privilege.

-Don’t know the guy can’t say if you’re right or wrong. If you’re right you were just talking about a minority not representing the majority. Some people in the movement can go overboard so let’s not judge. Follow your own statements.

-Here’s my thing. I’m willing to believe that some of the people that voted for Trump aren’t racist but like they decided all his bullshit was fine and still voted for him so like…at least a bit racist especially the ones still defending him.

-Trump is better??? It’s being proven he colluded with fucking Russia [or people in his fucking family] to influence an American election. Lord knows what his tax returns show. He’s wasting American tax dollars with all his trips making the SS pay. Not to mention how long he was living in Trump Tower [until June of this year] and the money and hassle that cost us as Americans. Under his legislation LGBTQ protections have been slashed all over the place. He’s threatened to kick transgender people out of the military and the list goes on and on and FINALLY this bullshit with Russia & Puerto Rico. Are you soooo invested in defending this piece of shit president that you would lie??

-Yes if Hillary was still against LGBTQ people she’d be a bigot. Idk if she still is but let’s be real here we’ve had bigoted presidents at least she would know what the fuck she’s doing she’s got the experience you can’t deny that vs the celebrity president.

-Black people can be white supremacist. Black people can be racist against other Black people so like they aren’t off the hook

-Both sides can’t have an informed decision because the Right doesn’t wanna acknowledge racism and sexism and other shit as institutions despite factual evidence from academics and lived experiences.

-So there’s this really cool thing where people can have multiple enemies. Sure both sides have a common enemy but the Right is also our enemy and if you wanna do the enemy of my enemy is my friend thing well they need to get their heads out of their asses. So do some on the Left but the Right are the predominant ones not listening to FACTS.

Concert aesthetic!!!! Met LJG 😍😍😍

October 24 2017

The title Regent is granted to one woman from each continent and gives her supreme authority over the magical practitioners inside her domain.  The title of Regent for North America has been passed down the Johnson family for seven generations.

Due to the magical prowess of the family, there is an unspoken tradition that when a Johnson Regent steps down or dies the title is passed to the Regent’s daughter. That’s about to end.

Ashley goes through her first semester of her senior year dealing with magical failures, random moments surrounding the lives of her less than human girlfriends and the constant looming cloud of shame her mother feels for her until it all culminates into one life-changing moment.

today on ‘reasons i love john boyega’

Movie plays in a FICTIONAL African country:
“No white people, it’s Africa dumbass!”

Movie plays in Europe in the Middle Ages:
“Why aren’t there any black people in the cast?! There’s no historically evidence, that Europe’s societies of that time weren’t diversified!”

I’m NOT saying that white washing isn’t bad (looking at you, newest adaptation of Mose’s story, whatever it’s name was) and that we don’t need diversity in cinema, but FFS, end the double standards bullshit.
 

K but like it’s set in a fictional african country that has **purposefully avoided colonization and has hidden itself from the rest of the world.**

Soooo… Yeah. It makes sense for there to not be white people, and the diversity possibility argument used for European Middle Age movies doesnt work here for the reason given above. There is no diversity because the country does not allow it.

You didn’t get my drift - my jab was at the double standards seen in the discourse about race in cinema. I understand the reasons for Mr. Boyega’s comment, black people deserve THEIR superheroes and THEIR movie, but now think about this:

If it wasn’t Black Panther, but another title, and the movie in question featured a predominantly white cast and someone asked “But where is the diversity? Why are there only white actors?” and a white actor answered like Mr. Boyega, what would then happen? It would have been scandalous, a PR disaster, there would have been an outcry in the social media about racism!

From an emotional point I understand and even support the exchange, but from an intellectual point it only furthers double standards and alienates parts of society. If a Trump supporter reads that, he will jump on his high horse screaming “See?! Them damn N******s are treating us like shit!” and the whining will never end -.-

Oh, and coming back to the main point, you’ve based your argument upon - that it’s fictional and that “It makes sense for there to not be white people“, then may I remind of all the voices complaining about Lord of the Rings or The Witcher 3 not featuring PoC? Especially the second one, although set in an Northen-European-like world and based on historical research - the cities, clothes, sword play etc. have been recreated really nicely - earned a lot of criticism for that seemingly small detail.

As I said, I’m not demanding that they change anything in the movie, I’m simply saying that upholding double standards is bad. May every creator do what they want, as long it doesn’t harm anyone, but people should see and judge everything equally.    


So… You’re comparing entire fictional worlds that have pretty much only white people despite having many different existing races to a fictional country on an *actual existing predominantly POC continent* specifically in an *actually existing low white population area* of said predominantly POC continent.

Those two things are not equal. That argument would only be fair if you were comparing diversity of the entire Marvel universe that Black Panther exists in to the universes of LOTR and Witcher, and if you do make that comparison then guess what? Marvel is predominantly white.

There is no double standard to this movie. You’re trying to make one, but it doesn’t exist.

Also if racists and trump supporters see a tweet that harmless as them being “treated like shit” that says a lot more about racists and trump supporters than any nonexistant double standard.

welp,

I’m still angry at forced diversity in Thor. You can’t go more white people than norse mythology. The actor who played Heimdall was ok, but imo still should be white dude. It’s fricking Heimdall, quite important character in the myths.

Also Witcher is based in fictional Poland. We are pretty white when you look around on the streets. I maybe saw few black people my whole life here, and boy I do move around the country.
but we have quite a few asians. 

so there is double standard.

Just to be clear. I have nothing against this movie. Not very interested, but I’m not Black Panther as a character for years now (the story never GOT me in any way). But as there is place for movies with almost all black cast, there is place for movies with all white cast. 

And there is especially place for games set in fictional version of Poland made in Poland, based on polish book that a lot of people here love. 

There were Black Norse people. Also why was his whiteness important? Also if you really cared why aren’t you mad about the Norse gods not being played by Norse folk?


Tell me the population of the magical creatures that are from the Witcher in Poland.


P.S. you poles can dislike “political correctness” all you want you’re just as racist as the rest of the world ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

“There were Black Norse people.”

@mcufandomhatespeopleofcolor is another pointless asshole who talks out of his/hee fucking ass

@mcufandomhatespeopleofcolor speaks out of his ass about country he never been to, nor understands. Typical of presumptuous and narcissistic westerner.

@gouachevalier besides common sense since Black people have been everywhere in history here [https://scholar.google.com/scholar?cluster=267739505690376568&hl=en&as_sdt=800005&sciodt=0,15]


@bewareimfrench and @tremzey you say this blog is talking out of its ass but somehow you’ve not answered anything I’ve asked. It’s not surprising your lot typically doesn’t because being able to adequately answer our questions would mean you’ve come some sort of knowledge in those big empty heads of yours.


If the only thing you can do is make a comment about me being a westerner [which you don’t even know that for sure lol] you’ve already proven you’re fools and should just stick to a conversation that requires less brain power. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

Eli Bosnick had the best response to this ridiculousness.

“If I gave you a bowl of skittles and three of them were poison would you still eat them?”

“Are the other skittles human lives?”

“What?”

“Like. Is there a good chance. A really good chance. I would be saving someone from a war zone and probably their life if I ate a skittle?”

“Well sure. But the point-”

“I would eat the skittles.”

“Ok-well the point is-”

“I would GORGE myself on skittles. I would eat every single fucking skittle I could find. I would STUFF myself with skittles. And when I found the poison skittle and died I would make sure to leave behind a legacy of children and of friends who also ate skittle after skittle until there were no skittles to be eaten. And each person who found the poison skittle we would weep for. We would weep for their loss, for their sacrifice, and for the fact that they did not let themselves succumb to fear but made the world a better place by eating skittles.

Because your REAL question…the one you hid behind a shitty little inaccurate, insensitive, dehumanizing racist little candy metaphor is, IS MY LIFE MORE IMPORTANT THAN THOUSANDS UPON THOUSANDS OF MEN, WOMEN, AND TERRIFIED CHILDREN…

… and what kind of monster would think the answer to that question… is yes?”

Meanwhile, the EU is like
“Hey America *acid attack* why don’t you *stabbing* bring in more refugees *nail bomb* and migrants so then you’ll be *truck attack* safer and more diverse *rape gangs* like us”

Oh yeah isn’t it terrible how acid attack against Muslims have gone up in the EU??

False. Thats like saying the Japanese flag is disrespectful to the American Flag. Or that the Union Jack is disrespectful. Or the Spanish Flag.

I’m sorry the countries that those flags belong to…were they a part of our country seceded [treason to us modern folk] and attack actual Americans?

I mean a war is a war is my point.

Okay but that doesn’t disprove that the confederate flag is disrespectful to the American one. War is war but the circumstances of the war determine a lot of things. Like which one is disrespectful to the American flag and so many other things.

So eating american POWs doesn’t make the Japanese flag disrespectful of the American one? Last time I checked that was pretty damn bad. Shit the Japanese did make treason look mild.


Besides, the U.S. was born on the principal of fighting for what you believe in and even though what they believed in was wrong, they ultimately were still doing that. Our country was born out of fighting a tyrant and to the South, thats just what the union was. Imo, Confederate Soildeirs are still American. They fought and died for a flag just like we would fight and die for ours, just like the Japanese fought under theirs, and just like the Brits fought under theirs.

Japan didn’t owe us anything. They didn’t owe us loyalty. They weren’t a part of us. They weren’t our people. Can you understand the difference now?  I’m not saying what the Japanese did wasn’t bad but can you honestly not understand why your own people betrayaing you is different from a foreign nation doing fucked up shit to you.

Keep reading

Except that Lincoln didn’t let them and their succesion efforts failed thus making them American again. Thats how I see it anyways.


Also, Japan didn’t own us loyalty, but they did owe us respect and our POWs mercy, none of which were given.


Also, are you saying the American flag disrespects the Union Jack? Because we did commit treason against the British when we ‘owed’ them loyalty. See in my opinion, loyalty is not just owed. It is a mutual build up of trust, and when the southerners felt that had been rejected, they lost their loyalty to their country just like we lost our loyalty to Britain.

That’s not how that happened though? They seceded and then were forced to return. That’s why the Civil War happened. The way you see it is a lie.

Keep reading

Why did lincoln refuse to remove the stars from the flag then? The Union never acknowledged the South formally leaving. Plus, after the war Confederate soilders were given veteran status, so….


Also, I do understand what Loyalty means. In this case southerners picked state over country. They still had loyalty. Just different then what you or I would choose today. Choosig to revoke something because they don’t agree with them does not mean you inherently disrespect them. I mean I understand your view point and do not necessarily think its wrong, but I choose to have mine because I see it differently.

So what you’re saying is all the history books that talk about how the South seceded are wrong? You’re saying your OPINION is the truth? When the war ended the Confederates became Americans again too do you think you’re proving a point or something here?? Lincoln did both those things to ease tension. He pardoned people for treason. He made them Americans. He made the Confederate soldiers veterans. 

Keep reading

Briton didn’t acknowledge our independence untill we won the war. In their eyes we had not succedes. Yes, technically you are right, the south left the union, but the Union never technically acknowledged that fact. Im not sayig you are necessarily wrong, I am simply offering a different view of history. (What my AP US His. Teacher would call different lenses)

Im not picking and choosing with History books. Im just telling different perspectives that have lead me to believe what I believe. Neither of us are really wrong at this point. The difference is you seem to view treason as an unforgivable sin and I decid if treason is wrong or not based on the motives behind it. At this point we are in a philosophical discussion where everything is subjective. I respect your view and get why you think that, but I believe something else based on a different, less commonly seen, veiw of History. I feel like to Veiw Confederates as wholy evil because they commited treason would mean I would have to say the same about Americans because they too commited treason against the crown. And Its fine that you do not agree, tbh I really don’t care what you think.

You cannot have a different lense on a FACT. Some things are up for interpretation. This isn’t one of them. There’s no technically I’m right I am 100% uneqivocally right. The South seceded. If you are still in contact with you AP US Hist teacher ask them. I’m right you’re wrong in this moment.

<!-- more -->

No you were picking. You were like “they didn’t secede.” and “but this happened after the war.” That a textbook example of picking and choosing.

I didn’t say the South was evil for commiting treason though? I think the South and the North was evil for the whole slavery thing. Also I’m not saying treason is unforgivable. Like are you honestly telling me that if a random person did something fucked up vs if your frien/family did something fucked up to you you wouldn’t feel differently at all. You’d have the same exact feelings. Be honest.

It doesn’t matter whether the reason for treason was right or wrong. I agree there are right reasons for treason. There is a difference when your own people do something and when foreigners do something which is why the Japanese flag isnt comparable to the Confederate flag because the Confederates were Americans that left us AND attacked us [are you glossing over that part that they shot first] vs a bunch of forieg soldiers with no ties to us.

Fear the walking dead is just shamelessly getting rid of characters the second they take an interesting turn. 

Chris starts believing he truly is a ‘’monster’’ as people always describe him as, so he decides to act like one, he gets brutally murdered. Travis undergoes a flawless development and just starts changing drastically as a character, he gets brutally murdered. Troy, a victim of abuse with a sociopatic persona is ready to start anew, and is now able to feel things he never has before like fear, empathy and affection, he gets brutally murdered.

They just give us a little taste, before ripping it off….why ?

I’m just curious how was he ready to start anew when he said he would do everything all over again in regards to leading the horde to the ranch so the indians couldn’t have it?

Are you and I not watching the same show?

It wasn’t because he didn’t want the Indians to have it. It was because he just wanted his home back after being banished for defending himself against said Indians after they attacked him in his own home. Once he was off the ranch, it’s like he became a whole new person. He was working on fixing his racial prejudices. He tried to help Daniel. He was trying to become a better person. I guess we weren’t watching the same show.

“It wasn’t right that the Indians had it.” 

I’m sorry did he not say that? Did I hallucinate? Also HIS own home?? I’m pretty sure like pretty sure that ranch belonged to the Indigenous folk. You don’t steal something and then get to call it yours. It’s not yours. It belongs to who you stole it from.

Someone that was trying to become a better person probably wouldn’t have said: “I’d do it all over again.” He might have acted like a new person but deep down he was still himself. His final words show that. 

Did you ever stop to think that Jeremiah may have lied to him about where the land actually came from? Probably not, because y'all seem to wanna forget about Troy’s past.

Also, did you ever stop to think about how sometimes people say things they don’t mean when they’re angry or upset? Again, probably not.


I’m not trying to say the things that Troy did were right at all, but there are multiple sides to every story.

Alright, let’s say he didn’t know. At the end of the day he did say word for word “It wasn’t right that the Indians had it.” so this whole that’s not why he led the hoard there is bullshit. You lied. God knows why but you did.

That’s a speculation of which you have no proof. You think that might be the case. But what we have is him saying he’d do it all over again. That’s the evidence we have. Him acting like his old self. 

There’s one side right now. Anything else is speculation without evidence. Which is fine in fandoms when you are having a conversation of opinions and theories but we are talking about FACTS right now. I’ve got them you don’t.

We also have him offering to help Daniel and the rest of the Mexicans blow up the damn dam! Troy did some investigating and offered up major intelligence. He let Nick know that Madison was in trouble. He got Nick to stop focusing on drugs long enough to go try and save his mother. Is that factual enough for you?

That’s great all that happened I acknowledge it but again. In his last moments he’s acting like his old self again. So forgive me for going not believing he’s turning over a new leaf based on his latest behavior. Like god forbid opinions change when new evidence appears right?

Also you don’t get to act like history books are wrong [the South didn’t secede] and then use information from history books [Confederates ere made veterans] either it’s right or it’s wrong you don’t get to pick and choose.

I don’t care what your thoughts are on loyalty. My point is at the end of the day theres somethiung fundemanetlally different about your own people turning on you [which they did you can’t argue that doesn’t matter the reasons] and people from a foreign nation doing fucked up shit.

Did you ever stop to think that Jeremiah may have lied to him about where the land actually came from? Probably not, because y'all seem to wanna forget about Troy’s past.

Also, did you ever stop to think about how sometimes people say things they don’t mean when they’re angry or upset? Again, probably not.


I’m not trying to say the things that Troy did were right at all, but there are multiple sides to every story.

Alright, let’s say he didn’t know. At the end of the day he did say word for word “It wasn’t right that the Indians had it.” so this whole that’s not why he led the hoard there is bullshit. You lied. God knows why but you did.

That’s a speculation of which you have no proof. You think that might be the case. But what we have is him saying he’d do it all over again. That’s the evidence we have. Him acting like his old self. 

There’s one side right now. Anything else is speculation without evidence. Which is fine in fandoms when you are having a conversation of opinions and theories but we are talking about FACTS right now. I’ve got them you don’t.

False. Thats like saying the Japanese flag is disrespectful to the American Flag. Or that the Union Jack is disrespectful. Or the Spanish Flag.

I’m sorry the countries that those flags belong to…were they a part of our country seceded [treason to us modern folk] and attack actual Americans?

I mean a war is a war is my point.

Okay but that doesn’t disprove that the confederate flag is disrespectful to the American one. War is war but the circumstances of the war determine a lot of things. Like which one is disrespectful to the American flag and so many other things.

So eating american POWs doesn’t make the Japanese flag disrespectful of the American one? Last time I checked that was pretty damn bad. Shit the Japanese did make treason look mild.


Besides, the U.S. was born on the principal of fighting for what you believe in and even though what they believed in was wrong, they ultimately were still doing that. Our country was born out of fighting a tyrant and to the South, thats just what the union was. Imo, Confederate Soildeirs are still American. They fought and died for a flag just like we would fight and die for ours, just like the Japanese fought under theirs, and just like the Brits fought under theirs.

Japan didn’t owe us anything. They didn’t owe us loyalty. They weren’t a part of us. They weren’t our people. Can you understand the difference now?  I’m not saying what the Japanese did wasn’t bad but can you honestly not understand why your own people betrayaing you is different from a foreign nation doing fucked up shit to you.

Keep reading

Except that Lincoln didn’t let them and their succesion efforts failed thus making them American again. Thats how I see it anyways.


Also, Japan didn’t own us loyalty, but they did owe us respect and our POWs mercy, none of which were given.


Also, are you saying the American flag disrespects the Union Jack? Because we did commit treason against the British when we ‘owed’ them loyalty. See in my opinion, loyalty is not just owed. It is a mutual build up of trust, and when the southerners felt that had been rejected, they lost their loyalty to their country just like we lost our loyalty to Britain.

That’s not how that happened though? They seceded and then were forced to return. That’s why the Civil War happened. The way you see it is a lie.

<!-- more -->

I never said otherwise but we are talking about a foreign nation vs our own people. There are different things you expect from your own people vs foriengers.

Yeah I’ll say the American flag disrespects Union Jack. I don’t particularly care since I’m not British. Regardless of what you think of loyalty at the end of the day there’s a difference between your own people and outsiders and if you don’t understand that you’re  either lying [which we already know you are willing to do] or you honestly just that ignorant.

Fear the walking dead is just shamelessly getting rid of characters the second they take an interesting turn. 

Chris starts believing he truly is a ‘’monster’’ as people always describe him as, so he decides to act like one, he gets brutally murdered. Travis undergoes a flawless development and just starts changing drastically as a character, he gets brutally murdered. Troy, a victim of abuse with a sociopatic persona is ready to start anew, and is now able to feel things he never has before like fear, empathy and affection, he gets brutally murdered.

They just give us a little taste, before ripping it off….why ?

I’m just curious how was he ready to start anew when he said he would do everything all over again in regards to leading the horde to the ranch so the indians couldn’t have it?

Are you and I not watching the same show?

It wasn’t because he didn’t want the Indians to have it. It was because he just wanted his home back after being banished for defending himself against said Indians after they attacked him in his own home. Once he was off the ranch, it’s like he became a whole new person. He was working on fixing his racial prejudices. He tried to help Daniel. He was trying to become a better person. I guess we weren’t watching the same show.

“It wasn’t right that the Indians had it.” 

I’m sorry did he not say that? Did I hallucinate? Also HIS own home?? I’m pretty sure like pretty sure that ranch belonged to the Indigenous folk. You don’t steal something and then get to call it yours. It’s not yours. It belongs to who you stole it from.

Someone that was trying to become a better person probably wouldn’t have said: “I’d do it all over again.” He might have acted like a new person but deep down he was still himself. His final words show that.
