Michael Brown’s dad before the burial. 
The emotion and all of the sweat…. shit is hard to look at, even if its only a picture

I didn’t want to reblog this because it’s hard to look at, but people SHOULD see it.
We SHOULD see a father mourning his teenage son.
We SHOULD see how a killing like Mike’s can take a toll on not only a community, but a family.
It’s as easy for young black men to become martyrs as it is for them to become victims. They can never just be humans. 
We can never just be.

If children of color have to be aware of the realities of racism, white children should too.

I’m tired of hearing that white children are too young to understand the consequence of their words or actions when for nonwhite kids they live with the impact of racism every day

Another way to present the 9 types of intelligence as exemplified by my How Do We Measure Intelligence post.

The basic idea is that different people are good at different things. These 9 probably don’t cover the wide range of smarts we all possess, but it’s a start.

As Albert Einstein said, ”Everybody is a genius. But if you judge a fish by its ability to climb a tree, it will live its whole life believing that it is stupid.”

let’s all take a minute to stop and think about how Hagrid gave Harry his homemade birthday cake, told him how much he looked like his parents, and fed him sausages before he even started to explain that he was a wizard

let’s stop to think about how his absolute first priority was to let harry know that he was loved and cared for

I didn’t tell anybody about our secret. Even when they tortured me with needles.

As a British person I can confirm that this is 100% accurate.

I concur… with my Britishness…

The baton then passed to Don McGregor, who talked about his time working on Black Panther, saying that writing an all black cast was controversial at the time. “People kept asking, where are the white people? So I had the Panther fight the Ku Klux Klan.”

This actually did happen to a real person, and the real person was me. I had gone to catch a train. This was April 1976, in Cambridge, U.K. I was a bit early for the train. I’d gotten the time of the train wrong.
I went to get myself a newspaper to do the crossword, and a cup of coffee and a packet of cookies. I went and sat at a table.
I want you to picture the scene. It’s very important that you get this very clear in your mind.
Here’s the table, newspaper, cup of coffee, packet of cookies. There’s a guy sitting opposite me, perfectly ordinary-looking guy wearing a business suit, carrying a briefcase.
It didn’t look like he was going to do anything weird. What he did was this: he suddenly leaned across, picked up the packet of cookies, tore it open, took one out, and ate it.
Now this, I have to say, is the sort of thing the British are very bad at dealing with. There’s nothing in our background, upbringing, or education that teaches you how to deal with someone who in broad daylight has just stolen your cookies.
You know what would happen if this had been South Central Los Angeles. There would have very quickly been gunfire, helicopters coming in, CNN, you know… But in the end, I did what any red-blooded Englishman would do: I ignored it. And I stared at the newspaper, took a sip of coffee, tried to do a clue in the newspaper, couldn’t do anything, and thought, what am I going to do?
In the end I thought, nothing for it, I’ll just have to go for it, and I tried very hard not to notice the fact that the packet was already mysteriously opened. I took out a cookie for myself. I thought, that settled him. But it hadn’t because a moment or two later he did it again. He took another cookie.
Having not mentioned it the first time, it was somehow even harder to raise the subject the second time around. “Excuse me, I couldn’t help but notice …” I mean, it doesn’t really work.
We went through the whole packet like this. When I say the whole packet, I mean there were only about eight cookies, but it felt like a lifetime. He took one, I took one, he took one, I took one. Finally, when we got to the end, he stood up and walked away.
Well, we exchanged meaningful looks, then he walked away, and I breathed a sigh of relief and sat back. A moment or two later the train was coming in, so I tossed back the rest of my coffee, stood up, picked up the newspaper, and underneath the newspaper were my cookies.
The thing I like particularly about this story is the sensation that somewhere in England there has been wandering around for the last quarter-century a perfectly ordinary guy who’s had the same exact story, only he doesn’t have the punch line.

It’s really bizarre and frustrating to see posts like this one about how to get away with murder that take the characters completely on the surface level and fly in the face of what the show is setting out to do. Like the whole point of these characters and this show is to take the people from other shows, other mediums who have traditionally been thrown into one-dimensional roles and show them as fully complex, realized people with both flaws and attributes.

The oversexed, flamboyant gay character becomes a ruthless, ambitious go-getter willing to use the role society has placed him in to get what he wants, but who flounders under pressure when he’s faced with real emotions, when he’s thrown into a situation with too many unknowns and variables.

The one-note do gooder crusader becomes someone willing to break rules, defy morals, corrupt himself in order to help someone he truly thinks deserves it - someone he knows the system is going to make a pariah because he’s lived under the weight of that system his whole life.

The pretty, quiet, malleable student is fully aware of how people see her (‘it’s just my face’), is determined to remain true to herself, to force others to see her as she wants to be seen.

The type-a ‘prom queen’ works hard, fucking hard to have her life as ordered and perfect as she wants it, and has dreams and ambitions as much as any other person - she isn’t just someone’s antagonist, someone’s villain.

All of this is cemented by the fact that the one character in the show who is reduced to a gag is the straight, white man - the one who, in any other show, would be the lead, would be the one allowed to have layers, to have an underlying reason for the way he acts and the choices he makes.

And like, the way people seem DETERMINED to fly in the face of the progressive, fascinating, deliberate choices the show makes is regards to its characters is so telling about the way media is received, about the stereotypes it engenders, about the assumptions people themselves bring to what they consume. The need to make these characters simple, palatable, understandable in the context of stereotypes and assumptions is so clear and something that needs to be confronted, imo.
