White feminists:

When you discuss the wage gap, here are a few things to keep in mind:

  • Only white women make $0.77 to a man’s dollar.
  • Black women make about $0.68 to a man’s dollar.
  • Latina women make about $0.58 to a man’s dollar.

Intersectionality matters.

Lupita Nyong’o graffiti at the Go Down Art Centre, Nairobi, Kenya.

She sat in the class I daydream in and I can only hope to be like her.

“I’m also a killer. I’ve killed a lot, and if I need to I’ll kill a whole bunch more. If you don’t want to get killed, don’t show up in front of me.”

Actual quote from Ferguson “law enforcement” officer and 35-year police veteran, Dan Page. But hey, let’s keep focusing on all those unreasonable “looters and rioters” (via staininyourbrain)

Would like to inform you that the tear gas shells which were used on the peaceful protestors yesterday in Islamabad were made by Smith & Wesson Co. (based in Massachusetts). Those shells were made in 1991 which have expired in 1999. These expired shells are proved to be more potent which have resulted in deaths. The same shells were used in Ferguson riots a few days back and in Bahrain too to stop protestors.
