People are giving Wilson money to thank him for killing an unarmed black teenager. Please report this to GoFundMe, as it violates their Terms of Service and they get 5% of the tens of thousands of dollars being donated. Click to report.

This is my message, in case you want to copy and paste:

Your Terms of Service prohibit “items that promote… hate, racial intolerance, or the financial exploitation of a crime.” Take a look at the comments that come with the donations on this page and tell me that doesn’t violate your terms. “Support Officer Wilson” is a thin veil for people rewarding Wilson for killing a black kid.

I don’t think I know anyone with this background, but maybe we can signal boost. One major thing the Ferguson organizers have been asking for specifically for several days is for service donations from mental health professionals with a background in trauma counseling, people of color would be preferable for obvious reasons. If you know someone who might be willing to either to go to Ferguson or do tele-sessions, please direct them to this form.

'little victories' by hanecdote

I needed this today

What were the protesters in Ferguson actually protesting on Sunday night? More than the death of an innocent black man, they were protesting the very disposability of the Black Body. The disposition of ‘ontological death’, meaning what constitutes a ‘full person’ (by any interpretation) is not recognized in the black population of America by the prevailing social institutions. So little significance does the Black Body hold that the media would rather talk about broken windows and burned out corner stores than the death of a living, breathing, human being.

The murder of Michael Brown was not a coincidence nor is it unrelated in the scope of American history. It must be contextualized in a long and ongoing lineage of violence against the Black Body and specifically that national oppression of Black peoples which works on behalf of the racist white supremacist capitalism of the United States. Michael Brown wasn’t the first innocent Black man to be murdered by racist pigs and he won’t be the last if we cannot change the course of the future.

There is a war being waged right now against the most basic existence of an entire population, and it’s happening on your street. The systemic oppression of the black population is integral to the very development of the United States as has been observed historically. Black people were and still are the free labor, they were and still are the most poor and vulnerable, they were and still are the ‘societal excess’ by which every ‘symptom’ of capital accumulation could be blamed upon. The war against the Black community is an ‘American war’ in the most authentic sense of the phrase.

The point of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge

the point of pouring a shit ton of ice water over yourself is because when one suffers from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) one of the effects the disease has is a numbness throughout the body, as well as struggling to breathe, and both these are meant to temporarily happen when doused in freezing water. It’s to raise awareness of what ALS feels like and encourage donations towards research and cures.

Heteronormativity is heterosexuality raised to the second power: it is heterosexuality not as an erotic orientation or even a compulsory regime that brooks no alternatives, but heterosexuality as the template for all forms of meaningful social organization.

The real problem with books-turned-movies isn’t “omg they didn’t include every single word in the book” it’s “omg they completely overlooked the main theme, threw out any significant allegories, took away all the emotional pull, an turned it into a boring action movie with a love triangle in it”

399. Purebloods and halfbloods getting used to filling in muggleborns on creatures they take for granted like gnomes and grindylows until one DADA class they turn to explain what vampires are but the muggleborns are already answering questions about crosses and stakes and sunlight and siring. The references for their homework essay that week are just a list of Joss Whedon, Bram Stoker, Anne Rice etc. One girl’s a Twilight fan and is shocked to get the lowest mark. Similarly, in higher years learning about inferi and possession and hauntings, all the purebloods get really freaked out but any muggleborn horror movie fans take it all in their stride and seem to even have fun. “Is it enough to cut off their heads? Should we completely dismember them?” “Is there like a chainsaw spell or shall I use an actual chainsaw?” “Is there an evil book? There’s usually a book.” “Get a priest in, but spoiler warning, they’ll probably die.” Everyone else just stares at them, terrified.

389. Muggleborns are used to gathering in the Room of Requirement to watch Game of Thrones every week and the purebloods keep asking them why they’re sad.
