The NYPD tried to start a hashtag outpouring of positive memories with their police force. 

If this were ever a bad idea, it was probably the worst idea for arguably the most corrupt police force in America. 

via Vice:

And just how did they think this was going to play out/

my thoughts EXACTLY

They played themselves. I can’t stop laughing!

LMAOO!!!!

HOW DID I MISS THIS

Nicki “needed to tone down” but more n more white women are infantilizing East Asian women for “girly” aesthetics

lareinaana:

It’s a hatred of that kind of feminine expression on a Black woman. Bombastic textures, neon, pink, all of that is “too much” for most little girls to get away with without any harassment, let alone a grown woman of color. It’s always considered the fakest of the fake, worse than anyone in even wilder shit like literal garbage n meat. Because… Pink is the most offensively condensed girliness the world can muster, so how dare Nicki be pink! Now she’s “better” “refined” “toned down” etc even though we know her looks are all legendary and well planned.

..while these older wish-they-had-ever-been white “artists” are half assedly adopting these “girly” aesthetics by appropriating and bastardizing what they call “Asian cultures,” complete with silenced back up dancers to be submissive to them, both in demeanor and in a more literal, contractual sense. Gwen made the “harajuku girls” sign a contract of silence with the limited opportunity presented to them, n I really doubt these gag orders are now suddenly uncommon now that she launched this creepy late-stage weeaboo trend. They’ve likely refined the process to keep it even quieter.

But oh, Nicki was gross because wigs n frills and funny faces/noises she makes sometimes. Too much smiling and laughing or some shit.

lareinaana:

disabledgirlism:

it’s pretty common for people discussing rape culture within feminist discourse to conveniently leave out disabled girls, but this is just a casual reminder that disabled women are far more likely to be sexually assaulted, abused or raped than able-bodied women. on top of that, 50% of deaf girls and 54% of deaf boys have been sexually abused or assaulted. so please stop leaving us out of your discussion about rape culture.

They’ll forget as soon as its time to make a disability “joke” tho.

MISSING PERSON

Standard disclaimer: This is the daughter of one of my mother’s friends.  She is very truly a missing person, yes I have verified that the people looking for her are people who should definitely find her.

Manisha Sinha, “The untold history beneath ‘12 Years’: NYC’s sordid history”

     If you’ve seen the movie, you might have thought that (Solomon) Northup’s experience of kidnapping and enslavement as a free black man in the north was a historical outlier. But it was far from unique.     New York City itself was a center of the shanghaiing of free blacks into slavery. A notorious gang known as the “black-birders,” in which some city policemen actively participated, at times with the connivance of local judicial authorities, regularly waylaid black men, women and children and sold them off to slavery in the antebellum period. Unlike Northup, some of them had no legal recourse, as they had been judicially remanded into slavery as suspected fugitive slaves.     Slavery — from the slaveholders, who lived off the unpaid labor of their slaves, down to criminals and slave-catchers rewarded handsomely for their efforts — was a very profitable business.     Indeed, the line between the recapture of fugitive slaves and the kidnapping of free blacks was often blurred. The first federal Fugitive Slave Law of 1793 made it so easy for any black person suspected of being a runaway to be remanded to slavery that it facilitated the kidnapping of northern free blacks. At a time when around 90% of the African-American population was enslaved legally in the United States, most black people were suspect.     Fugitive slaves resided in northern black communities, intermarrying with free blacks and making the lines between slavery and freedom for many African Americans even thinner.     Northern states would eventually react with personal liberty laws to guarantee procedural fairness to their black citizens in state courts and to punish the kidnapping of free African Americans into slavery. But these laws were overthrown by the draconian Fugitive Slave Act of 1850, demanded by southern slaveholders as their price for maintaining the union between the states.     That law encouraged a new spate of fugitive slave renditions and kidnappings, scaring thousands of African Americans into exile in Canada. Indeed, for much of the period before the Civil War, Canadian black settlements were a safe haven for runaway slaves as well as northern free blacks fleeing legal and popular persecution.

Them hoes look hit before make up

They don’t

And why they hoes?

???????????????????? THEY LITERALLY LOOK LIKE NORMAL HUMAN WOMEN.

Bruh, both the before and after photos depict them as normal human women, just different ways of looking on a day-to-day! Like… I don’t get the big deal or why callin’ ‘em out their names was necessary.

These are pornstars…That’s Why They Hoes

They’re still human, doe. They’re people before their occupations, are they not?

The thing is… none of these ladies are ugly. They have normal people skin: freckles, blemishes, dark under-eye circles, some uneveness in skin tone, redness, etc. That’s what humans look like. If you want flawless skin, buy Photoshop and have at it. Otherwise, keep your fucked up thoughts to yaself.

Also, these are still human beings that deserve dignity. Quit calling them outside their names, you mushmoufed mothafuckas.
