In light of the murder of Michael Brown, a Ferguson, Missouri teen at the hands of a town police officer, we as black Americans are faced with yet another chilling example of police brutality victimizing our people, and almost equally important, the media’s often piss poor coverage of us as the victims. When Garner was killed, journalism outlets couldn’t wait to note that the cops had previous verbal scuffles with him. When Renisha McBride’s killer was found guilty the other day, the Associated Press referred to her as a “drunk woman” and the killer as a “suburban homeowner.” When Trayvon Martin and Jordan Davis were killed, various outlets used the most thuggish pictures they could find of those young men. So, I ask you all, #IfTheyGunnedMeDown, which picture would the media use of me? I think I already know the answer. #RIPMichaelBrown

The absence of women in history is man made.

Jackie Mitchell…a bad ass lady I had never heard of.
From her Wikipedia page: “Seventeen-year-old Jackie Mitchell, brought in to pitch in the first inning after the starting pitcher had given up a double and a single, faced Babe Ruth. After taking a ball, Ruth swung and missed at the next two pitches. Mitchell’s fourth pitch to Ruth was a called third strike. Babe Ruth glared and verbally abused the umpire before being led away by his teammates to sit to wait for another batting turn. The crowd roared for Jackie. Babe Ruth was quoted in a Chattanooga newspaper as having said:
"I don’t know what’s going to happen if they begin to let women in baseball. Of course, they will never make good. Why? Because they are too delicate. It would kill them to play ball every day."
Next up was the Iron Horse Lou Gehrig, who swung through the first three pitches to strike out. Jackie Mitchell became famous for striking out two of the greatest baseball players in history.
A few days after Mitchell struck out Ruth and Gehrig, baseball commissioner Kenesaw Mountain Landis voided her contract and declared women unfit to play baseball as the game was “too strenuous.” Mitchell continued to play professionally,barnstorming with the House of David, a men’s team famous for their very long hair and long beards. While travelling with the House of David team, she would sometimes wear a fake beard for publicity.”
TL;DR: teenage girl strikes out two of the greatest baseball players ever, teenage girl gets her contract voided, teenage girl plays baseball wearing fake beard
Have you seen Miley Cyrus's current twitter icon? It's her head photoshopped onto Nicki Minaj's anaconda album cover.... Idk it's not a big thing but it made me pause cause it's so obnoxious
lightened the skin to match too smdh. puta needs to fucking go back to tennessee and stay there.
can y’all out there still living in Willfully Ignorantville please stop denying the blatant cultural appropration/dehuminization of Black bodies that this lil country bumpkin keeps actively engaging in? Like.. she whitewashed a Black woman’s body to put her head on it for coolness/edgy/sexy points… because she is literally using the sexuality of a Black woman but making it white aka ok and attractive. Fuck that. She keeps stooping lower and lower and it’s not a good look.
I'm young and white. I like black people. It really is interesting that African Americans have persevered in the US after everything they have been through. The one thing I have a problem with is that you want white people to respect you as a whole but you're mad that we're taking your culture? Make up your mind
First of all, your question is dumb. And second of all, who ever said we are respected?? White people constantly bash what black people do calling it “ghetto” but YET they turn around and try to appropriate the culture. For example as I saw on twitter
"Their big jay z lips"
"Ew Who would want their butt that big"
I think white people should make up their minds. ✌️
"i like black people"
