I'm a radio wave. Listen to me. Talk to me. Poo-tee-weet. On da 'gram. Columbus, Ohio.

  • Do not forget Michael Brown
  • Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
  • Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
  • Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
  • Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $400,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
  • Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
  • Do not forget Ferguson 

"After we review the facts"/"Once all the facts are known"/similar variants are just diplomatic ways for figures of authority to tell you they aren’t going to do a goddamn thing.

Overwhelmed with melancholy after Accuweather told me the rain would stop in 8 minutes but it wasn’t raining at all.

“He posed as a progressive and turned out to be counterfeit. We ended up with a Wall Street presidency, a drone presidency, a national security presidency. The torturers go free. The Wall Street executives go free. The war crimes in the Middle East, especially now in Gaza, the war criminals go free. And yet, you know, he acted as if he was both a progressive and as if he was concerned about the issues of serious injustice and inequality and it turned out that he’s just another neoliberal centrist with a smile and with a nice rhetorical flair. And that’s a very sad moment in the history of the nation because we are—we’re an empire in decline. Our culture is in increasing decay. Our school systems are in deep trouble. Our political system is dysfunctional. Our leaders are more and more bought off with legalized bribery and normalized corruption in Congress and too much of our civil life.”

Cornel West unloads on Barack Obama. (via salon)

a magician asks you to pick a card - any card, in fact. you do. they ask you to put the card back in the pack - anywhere in the pack, in fact. you do. they walk away. ten years later, your wife gives birth to the six of clubs. “is this your card?” the midwife asks, in a familiar voice.

what the fuck

This kind of shit is the whole reason I get on the internet.

"Accidentally high" is an absurd concept but also a harsh reality.

It’s that special time of year when I realize that I follow an inordinate number of high-schoolers on Tumblr because they’re all posting sad gifs about going back to school.
