The amalgamation of random things I find and find cool. Notice the prevalence of math and classical music.
I have a lot of feelings and they frequently spill out onto the blog. Follow with caution.
The music at the bottom is not autoplay.
An officer threatens to kill a journalist and those around him since he’s not credential press. He then threatens everyone around the guy with live rounds. If you don’t know what those are, they’re real bullets.
Another journalist tried to ask his name but all he said was “Go fuck yourself”.
The tag trending for this guy on twitter, funny enough, is #officergofuckyourself.
Please spread, Ferguson is not safe. Don’t forget about it.
Ladies and Gentlemen, Officer GoFuckYourself.

I was speaking to a friend in Gaza and he told me that his little cousin is writing her name all over her body with her markers, just in case she gets blown up and no one can identify her. She is 11 years old. 11. The psychological pain and trauma the Palestinian children go through is absolutely repulsive.
McDonald’s worker arrested after telling company president she can’t afford shoes.
"A woman who has been employed by the McDonald’s Corporation for over 10 years says she was arrested last week after she confronted the company president at a meeting and told him she couldn’t afford to buy shoes or food for her children.
Nancy Salgado, 26, told The Real News that she felt like she had to speak out during McDonald’s USA President Jeff Stratton’s speech at the Union League Club of Chicago on Friday for the sake of her children.
“It’s really hard for me to feed my two kids and struggle day to day,” she shouted as Stratton was speaking. “Do you think this is fair, that I have to be making $8.25 when I’ve worked for McDonald’s for ten years?”
“I’ve been there for forty years,” Stratton replied from the podium.
“The thing is that I need a raise. But you’re not helping your employees. How is this possible?” Salgado asked.
At that point, someone approached Salgado and informed her that she was going to be arrested.
She later recalled the encounter to The Real News’ Jessica Desvarieux.
“The strength was very powerful, like, just remembering the face of my kids, like I say, you know, just simple things like I can’t provide a pair of shoes like everybody else does, sometimes every month, or anything like that,” she said. “And he needs to know we are what all the employees at McDonald’s are going through. We’re struggling day to day to provide our needs in our houses, things for our kids. And it’s just–it gets harder and harder with just the poverty wage they have us living in.”
“They just told me, you know, well, you’re being under arrest because you just interrupted, you trespassed the property. You’re just going to go to jail,” Salgado added. “And what I remember just telling them, ‘well, like, so, because I have to speak out my mind and I had to tell the president the poverty wage I’m living in, that’s just against the law?’ You know, just be able to speak up your mind and say, you know what, I can’t survive with $8.25? It’s just — it’s ridiculous that I’m going to get arrested. You know.”
Salgado, who is still working at McDonald’s, said she had her hours cut following the arrest and feared further retaliation.
“The CEOs make millions and billions a year and why can’t they provide enough for their employees?” she wondered.”
I think that this is beyond awful for many reasons. People can’t afford to live off of the wages that they are given currently, and can’t even speak out against it. I know tumblr is great for spreading important news like this, so please help me get the word out to support this woman.

Because why go outside (gasp!) and get involved when you can just like and reblog posts from the comfort of your home.
Because sometimes you’re young, and can’t leave your area, or parents won’t let You get involved. so the only thing you can do is spread the message so someone who can help will see it.
"Aaaand made a comic to make people feel bad about themselves, when I’m not doing anything either. Gee that was good use of my time."
(also disabilities or social anxieties, not being where the chaos is happening, etc) but idk why you guys act like tumblr activists never go to protests. A lot of us do, we’re actually more likely to. We jus realize that spreading awareness on this platform is needed to further efforts, thats the point of protests to not only to get attention of ppl in charge but to spread awareness. If u honestly are more concerned w oppressor feelings rather than gettin out info about the oppressed, OP you are in no way either activists. Plus “make love not war” is the corniest overused shit and i feel like u’ve either never been to a recent protest or only been to a white one rioting over “why is my water so spicy !!!” finally, often posts like “white people ruin everything” are jus rants from frustrated poc since this is a blogging site and also a safe place. We are in fact oppressed by whites and those posts arent harming anyone bc whites are so highly privileged. Quit bein a punk.
niggas is literally protesting and getting arrested and shot at b I’ve got to put my neck on the line so your smug ass can feel higher than me
instead of drawing this shitty, ugly, overused and overdone comic, you could literally just gone to a protest or something, since that’s the “best” option
