Ok this is backfiring a little, as I’m having trouble thinking of something without adding “buuuut” at the end and cancelling it out with related negativity, but I am going to keep that post open in a tab and edit in all these stupid unimportant things that I can think of that are impossible to have negative associations as well because of how small they are
For the however many-th day in a row I was about to post whiny shit, but I won’t. Instead I think I’ll post something positive. Something that makes me happy or whatever.
sten is so fucking confusing but I love him so much every single conversation is just
"what were you doing in that cage??"
"you’re the silent type huh"
"just tell me"
so i marathoned utena on the roadtrip to school!
Every year in September, I post my top 10 outfits according to tumblr notes (here are the 2013 and 2012 posts). This year, only last year’s number one stayed, but it dropped to the tenth position. My observation is that you guys seem to prefer darker coloured simpler outfits!

BREAKING: Here’s the tweet that could lead to a new grand jury in Ferguson, MO.
#Ferguson: @shaunking took screenshot of tweeter @thesusannichols who claims to know juror on #MikeBrown #DarrenWilson grand jury & appears to be receiving leaked information. King says that within seconds of posting this, her friends told her to delete it & she did but not before it was screenshotted. She has since deleted her entire account but King says they checked & she is indeed a #STL resident w/ years’ worth of tweets from there. “If true, her tweet not only reveals a leak in the grand jury, but gives us an ugly glimpse into how things have gone so far. This person who posted it on twitter & her contact on the grand jury must be fully & completely investigated & removed if it’s true.”-@shaunking
Y’all better reblog the fuck outta this post it on facebook, twitter, IG, myspace, friendster, everything get this information out
In a post-Ferguson world, Americans increasingly doubt the notion of colorblind justice.
HOW THE FUCK DID THE PERCENTAGE GO UP FOR WHITE PEOPLE
IN WHAT UNIVERSE DOES A POLICE OFFICER SHOOTING AN UNARMED BLACK KID (AND THEN ATTEMPTING TO COVER IT UP AFTER THE FACT) CONSTITUTE EQUAL TREATMENT IN THE JUSTICE SYSTEM
LIKE WHO LOOKS AT THAT AND GOES “WELL, BEFORE I THOUGHT THAT THERE WAS RACISM IN OUR JUSTICE SYSTEM, BUT THEN THIS SHIT HAPPENED AND NOW I SEE THAT IT’S PERFECTLY EQUAL”
WHAT THE FUCK
This increase can be explained by an interesting social phenomenon called ‘denial.’
They benefit from not knowing.. and from believing in myths.
Comparing beliefs before and after Michael Brown’s murder and the surrounding revelations of racism that have sprung out of it, white people, as a demographic believe, MORE THAN EVER BEFORE, that the criminal justice system treats whites and blacks equally.
That is, MORE white people believe the criminal justice system treats black equally now than they did before Michael Brown’s death.
In essence, for white people, blatant systemic oppression and the murder of an unarmed young black man gives them even more reason to believe blacks are treated fairly by the system.
This confirms an earlier study that said the more you tell white people that the system is inherently racist, the more they supported harsher punishments for black people: http://thinkprogress.org/justice/2014/08/07/3468368/study-white-people-support-harsher-criminal-laws-if-they-think-more-black-people-are-arrested/
Marinate on these inhumanities for a second.
