Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.
I watched the Avengers animated series this morning while taking care of prints. Guys. Ant Man actually rides into battle on ants.
Sorry Ant Man you are an easy target.
Today one of my friends was dress coded for her bra strap showing and so she wrote on the gym shirt that they gave her. It reads “Dress Code: promotes the objectification and sexualization of young bodies, blames the wearer for the onlooker’s perceptions/actions, perpetuates rape culture, and is bullshit” On the back she wrote “You can’t shame me for something I’m not ashamed for”. It was really cool seeing all of the people’s reactions who saw it and I thought what she did was pretty cool.
YES YOUNG WOMEN STANDING UP FOR THEMSELVES
Health and fitness comes in all shapes and sizes. Every single one of these athletes is a certified bad-ass.
I’ve posted this before but it’s worth reblogging!
Just a reminder - if you’re drawing a team superhero book and more than one of your characters has the same build YOU’RE DOING IT ALL WRONG
Louisville Metro Police say they’ve arrested a man who terrorized his Hispanic neighbors.
According to an arrest warrant, the trouble started on Aug. 31, on Lipps Lane, off Preston Highway. Police say a Hispanic family was arriving home when they noticed that their neighbor, 51-year-old Douglas Poynter, had painted the words “KKK wants you to burn” on the side of his fence, facing their house.
Poynter also had erected a cross with the word “burn” written underneath it, police say.
According to the arrest warrant, he was still standing in his yard — covered in paint — when the family arrived. When they asked him why he would do this, Poynter allegedly swore at them yelling, “F____ you. F_____ all you immigrants.”
"He started threatening me and said the first chance I get, you’re mine. I’m gonna shoot you. Then he started pointing his shotgun out of the window," said Jesus Alamo.
Police say Poynter then swung his fist at Jesus Alamo, who pushed him back.
The victim’s 9-year-old step-daughter then said she was going to call the police.
Poynter them went inside his home and came out with a shotgun, police say, pointing at the Hispanic father, who was holding his 22-month-old son in his arms at the time, and telling him that he would shoot him the first chance he got, either in the front or the back.
When police arrived a short time later, they allegedly saw that Poynter was drunk.
The next day, on Sept. 1, the family came outside their home and immediately detected the stench of gasoline, according to the warrant, and noticed a puddle of gas on the porch. The father then told his family to go out the patio door, but they allegedly noticed gasoline on a rubber mat outside that door as well. When the family attempted to exit from a laundry room door, they found another puddle of gasoline, according to the warrant.
They decided to call the police.
While they were waiting for officers to arrive, Poynter allegedly walked out of his home with the shotgun and began waving it around, pointing it at the father and saying, “Sooner or later, you’re gonna die. You and your family.”
Police say they arrived a short time later, saw Poynter with the gun and drew their own weapons.
They ultimately advised the victim’s family to file a criminal complaint. According to the warrant, the victim claims to have had trouble with Poynter for several months, including one incident in which Poynter walked into his family’s home without being invited. Police say the man’s children — 12-year-old twins and a 22-month-old — are terrified of Poynter.
An arrest warrant was issued on Sept. 2, and Poynter was arrested later that afternoon. He was charged with criminal trespassing, attempted arson, terroristic threatening, wanton endangerment, harassment and menacing.
In court on Wednesday, Poynter shook his head as court officials described what he’s accused of doing.
By the afternoon, he was released from jail on a $10,000 bond.
I’m so confused
hate crimes. hate crimes, hate crimes, hate crimes.
I don’t get angry often, but this is bullshit. BULL. SHIT. That man spent months making every day of Jesus Alamo’s life Hell, causing complete terror. He pulled out his gun multiple times and threatened to kill him and covered his house in gasoline. But the police just let it happen over and over? And released him on bail? He could bail and finally go through with it! The KKK sign is warrant enough for being arrested and fined, but that it keeps going on, while nobody lifts a finger, that is just as much of a crime.
