what if I just started writing since I can’t play for now? would that do any good? I don’t really know but it’s only 10:32 and I’m not about to go to sleep like some little fucking kid because I’m a damn adult. barely. my room is so empty. it’s so obvious I had no idea what I was doing when I was in target so I just picked up a bunch of shit and none of it makes any sense of coherent structure nor style. or am I just being hypercritical of myself? I have no idea. once again I’m dazzled by my own mind. I can’t concentrate on anything anymore because I’m a vegetable that can’t play a fucking box of wood with some strips of metal and a stick with weave attached to it. because viola is sorta all I am. it’s so sad but I’m literally nothing without it. but that may mean I’m nothing WITH it or some shit. who cares I just wanna make some music again because I can’t keep bothering Clifford the big red dog every time I need to get out and do something. he’s really nice but I just feel like I’ll never see last what he is externally. why the hell am I talking about this? idk maybe I just like him. no he’s just cute in a particular sense that really doesn’t attract many others. or maybe it does and no one really wants to admit it. he’s also 23. that’s a problem because I turned 18 not too long ago and just no. we have a date tomorrow morning. here’s to fucking tendinitis.
after our coaching, we all sat around and talked for awhile about how fucking inspiring kurt muroki is, then clayton and eunghee left and dana and i sat and listened to lior practice dvorak for awhile, then some gorgeous piano rep, and then when he finished i was like next! and he was like, do you want like soft night music? and i was like YES and he was like, so jazz then.
and then this happened, and it was perfect.
sometimes there are just moments you wish you could freeze and keep forever—this was one of those.
Imagine the uproar if these kinds of pictures were shown in magazines all the time. But nobody bats a fucking eyelid when we do it to women. Everyone (men (white men)) would be up in arms about ~misandry~ and hypersexualization, but do these dudebro MRAs care that women are subjected to this type of imagery /reversed/ in our own magazines on every second goddamn page? Didn’t think so.
THAT is why these images showing the reversal is important. Dudes will cry “you won’t get people to join your cause if you respond to degradation of your gender by degrading another gender” - no, fuck you. We are sick of the constant hypersexualization, and one photoset relieving us of our plight that makes you uncomfortable is NOTHING compared to what we deal with everyday.
I have absolutely no problem with this kind of advertising. In fact I like it waaaaayyyyy better. I want that purse
George Zimmerman is finally having his day in court. We know that the jury includes some interesting,concealed-weapons-permit-having jurors. The stage is now set for heartbreak from the witness stand.
In a case about life and death—and the charge of second-degree murder to be specific—Zimmerman defense attorney Don West started his opening statement with a knock-knock joke that no one seemed to find too amusing.
The courtroom grew somber as the state called its first witness: 15-year-old Chad Joseph. His mother is Brandy Green; her boyfriend is Tracy Martin (Trayvon’s father). Joseph—whose relationship to Trayvon might be described as a stepbrother to Trayvon—testified that he and Trayvon watched television and played video games all day on that fateful February day last year that would end with Trayvon’s death. Joseph explained that he stayed home while Trayvon went to the local store for goodies—adding that he asked Trayvon to get him Skittles.
That was the last time Joseph ever saw Trayvon alive.
I literally can’t do this shit
This week alone
Between this trial
The shit with Paula Deen
The Supreme court and my supposed brethren turning a blind eye to folks of color’s struggles
Not only have white people proven they’re not here for me
I’ve been reminded just how much America DOESN’T CARE about the bodies of POCs, with black bodies being at the forefront for some odd reason
How can you sit there and defend Paula? Everything she did?
How can you just SIT THERE and watch this CHILD, a CHILD, get dragged by the media and all these racists shitstains and just…say he deserved it
That could have been my little brothers, or even my sisters, or me
And you’d say I deserve it because I was some supposed non model-negro
You’d throw my image and memory away to uphold white supremacy
I just can’t
My heart is broken
Welcome to America home of the free and land of the brave ha.
This is yet another black body being thrown to the wolves while no one gives a fuck.
Funny how this has 100 sum notes while theres this post about saving the poor children over in Africa with several thousands of notes. But yall caint care about the black people right here who are being murdered in supposedly safe places. Gunned down for no fucking reason other than hate and racism.
A human beings red blood was spilled and he isnt getting justice. Isnt that what yall care about? That we all human? That we all bleed red? Well Trayvon bled red and so do so many other poc specifically black and brown people who get killed for no fucking reason.
Killed by supposed protectors. Man fuck neighborhood watch, we got niggas gettin shot by the fucking police. Police who claim that these niggas was mindless and violent. Police who are fucking lying. Ive seen this shit in action. They bus up in yo house talkin shit, tryna get u riled up, they push you a little, and when you push back they apparently got the right to beat you, lock you up, and/or shoot you.
Fuck yall. Seriously. If you dont have time for Trayvon Martin and his right to justice iont got time for you. Really. Unfollow me right now.
I literally had to bold that one paragraph
You just snatched the wigs of every “we all bleed red” motherfucker in existence
I hope everyone sees that one line RIGHT there because that’s it
Literally shut them down forever.
think HARD about that: not only did they white-wash Katniss, they EXPLICITLY PROHIBITED WoC TO AUDITION FOR THE ROLE OF KATNISS. Smells like blatant racism.
Can we focus on that last part? B/c white people will always come up with “well the white actor/actress was just the best one to audtition.” Well, yeah if that’s ONLY who auditioned.
They’re theory of white actors/actresses being better doesn’t hold up if no one else if given the opportunity to even audition.
