endless list of favorite characters → katniss everdeen, the hunger games

The bird, the pin, the song, the berries, the watch, the cracker, the dress that burst into flames. I am the mockingjay. The one that survived despite the Capitol’s plans. The symbol of the rebellion.

But that ain’t Jennifer Lawrence? Looks more like Keisha Castle-Hughes.

It’s Q’orianka Kilcher, and I used her as a dreamcast because I always read Katniss as PoC. Jennifer Lawrence is a fine actress, but she’s not at all an accurate representation of the Katniss in my head.

#sometimes i think the casting call was for a white girl because a woman of color raising up an army #and becoming the symbol of the revolution would be too close to social commentary they considered too radical #because we can rage against the patriarchy only if it’s in the future #and we can rage against racism only if it’s in the past #but we can’t rage against both #because that is too close to threatening the status quo of the present (via dealanexmachina)

She would have made a great Katniss!

Why aren’t we seeing this everywhere? Soooo much more meaningful than this, which was everywhere:


Those were my EXACT thoughts.

We all know why.

this photo is 1,000,000 times more beautiful and meaningful than the one from the canda riots.

Anonymous said: why do black people use you in the wrong context? such is "you ugly" instead of "you're ugly" I know u guys can differentiate, it's a nuisance

you a bitch

It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.

So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.

quote When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation. But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him. Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people.

Keith Boykin: Does the Second Amendment Only Apply to White People? (via clambistro)

Shit, neither does the first. As demonstrated by the reaction to protesters in Ferguson.

The irony of Jennifer Lawrence nudes…

whatwhiteswillneverknow:

First off, yes, if someone leaks someone else’s nudes, you shouldn’t reward their behavior and get them removed. 

But I’m amazed with all of these articles talking about something that was suppose to be common sense.

What I’m more amazed was when the boys released Amber Cole’s video, that the only people that came to her defense were people that are not professional journalist or society commentators, just people like me who the media won’t even bat an eyelash to.

No one shut down that distribution of Child Pornography at the time. 

I’m just amazed at all these “think pieces” talks about Jennifer Lawrence privacy and treatment of women while the same “think pieces” shamed Amber Cole’s actions and condemn her for being a Black teenager.

But I’m sleep, doe.

queer trans anarchy flag

I wasn’t sure I really wanted this to be a completed work, but I posted a low-rez version on Twitter and I got a lot of positive feedback. So here it is, a Queer Trans Anarchy flag! Or at least my first attempt at one.

Instead of the queer anarchy nautical star I made a compass rose in the same colors, black and pink. The background is inspired by the ‘rising sun’, I…

What does this mean?

That, my friend, is exactly the question you have to ask.

It means that this is one of the best ways to pile up rocks and not have them fall down for a long time.
