African-American Girls & Women Killed By Police: Speak Their Names. See Their Faces. Know Their Stories.
There is this false myth going around that Black women are not victims of police violence. I believe the myth exists because quite frankly the media, social justice organizations and we the public tend not to focus on it. It is a self-fulfilling prophecy. I hope this post will make all of us change our minds. Here are the stories of some of the Black women and girls killed by law enforcement:
Adaisha Miller, Detroit Woman, Hugged Cop From Behind
LAPD cop charged with assault in death of Alesia Thomas
7-year- old Aiyana Stanley-Jones – Detroit Free Press

I’ve always felt a lot of internal pressure to be “right,” all the time.  Having matured somewhat, I try to channel that emotional need into a more productive, less self-righteous attitude.  Rather than expect people to believe what I believe with no exceptions, I try to modify my own views whenever possible.  I still want to be “right”, but I put the burden of proof on myself rather than everyone else.

Nintendo confirmed today that if you pre-order Super Smash Bros for the 3DS at any Target store, it’ll come with an exclusive Zero Suit DLC alt costume for Wario!

Even Wario has enough fashion sense to know the Rocket heels are ugly and clashy as hell.

Bolding mine.
Frankly, I wouldn’t mind if for once a male character was tortured with those fugly rocket “boots”.
After all, Wario rocks them much better than Samus does.


So yeah, I kinda wish Nintendo followed xyrafhoan's vision more closely.
Happy Friday!

These are truly exciting times we live in.

As intriguing as an independent Scotland would have been, it looks like we won’t get to see one any time soon. I just hope that the pro-independence voters who were looking for political change, will still see some of that change come their way.

There’s a lot going on in the world, but I hope people will take some time to think about this vote. It wasn’t over arbitrary, petty-nationalist concerns. This was about a country asserting its rights against an unresponsive political establishment. There is a great deal left to talk about in the UK, I’d imagine.
