  • Well… no… that’s different…

    mofgimmers:

    Charlie Sheen. Sean Connery. Sid Vicious. Phil Spector. John Lennon. Sean Penn. Steven Seagal. Tommy Lee. Ozzy Osbourne. Slash. Christian Slater. Dudley Moore. Vanilla Ice. Josh Brolin. Glen Campbell. Edward Furlong. Jimmy Page. Roman Polanski. Bill Wyman.

    These are just some of the celebrities that people have seemingly developed a collective amnesia about. Every white male celebrity above has been arrested for domestic violence and, in some cases, murdered women.

    Now, you go out and ask people about celebrities who have beaten women, committed sexual abuse on minors, murdered women and the rest, and you’ll no doubt hear ‘Mike Tyson’, ‘R Kelly’, ‘Michael Jackson’, ‘Chris Brown’ and ‘OJ Simpson’.

    That’s because there’s a lot of people who read racist press and are accidentally racist themselves. Black men are a threat. They’re primitive. They perpetuate what white people think about black men.

    Okay. Let’s take a look at Sean Connery. A national treasure around the world. In 1965, he told Playboy: “I don’t think there is anything particularly wrong about hitting a woman - although I don’t recommend doing it in the same way that you’d hit a man. An openhanded slap is justified.”

    The ’60s were a different time though weren’t they? Well, 20 years later, when talking to Barbara Walters: “I haven’t changed my opinion. Not at all. I don’t think it’s bad, and I think it depends entirely on the circumstances, and if it merits it. If you have tried everything else – and women are pretty good at this – when they can’t leave it alone and want to have the last word, then you give them the last word. But they’re not happy with having the last word, they want to say it again and get into a really provocative situation. Then, I think it’s absolutely right.”

    In 2000, Connery was knighted.

    Okay. What about lovely Jimmy Page from Led Zep? 

    Page kidnapped a 14-year-old girl. He sent a roadie out called Richard Cole to the table of 14-year-old Lori Maddox’s table with the message, “Jimmy told me that he’s going to have you whether you like it or not.”

    What happened next? The roadie threw her into a limo and allegedly said: “You fucking move and I’ll fucking have your head.” They went back to Page’s house where the guitarist had a lot of sex. So much so it went on for 3 years.

    Josh Brolin was arrested for domestic violence in 2004. Christian Slater, 2005. Charlie Sheen beat women up for 20 years.

    In the case of Chris Brown, while not in any way excusing what he did, the narrative is that Brown is little more than a thug. A black man who beats up women. It’s a tried and tested media narrative which works for people with entrenched racist views. However, the story changes slightly when you consider that Chris Brown was raped when he was 8 years old.

    While Chris Brown is railroaded about his behaviour, white celebrities get away with it through a line of ‘it was a misunderstanding’ or ‘they were on drugs and they’ll be forgiven once they’ve finished rehab’.

    It should go without saying, but I’ll point it out in bold that the real victims in this are women and children. But on a point of race, which many still see as a thing of the past, that in 2014 things like Mike Brown being killed in Ferguson with his hands held high, while TJ Lane murdered three teenagers, appeared in court with a t-shirt that read ‘KILLER’ and told courts that he masturbated over parents’ grief, is alive.

    When you point out that Sid Vicious basically confessed to killing his girlfriend Nancy, people will return fire with a furious defence, or write it off as the actions of a ‘troubled soul’. He’s been inducted into the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame. Everyone queues up to heap praise on him. No-one ever brings up his part in the murder of another human being.

    The narrative is there and clear to see, but yet, in 2014, no-one wants to see it. It is easier to attack young black men than it is to accept that the law is racist, the press side with the law and the people being fucked by it are People Of Colour and the women and children who are victims of domestic and sexual abuse.

    So when people say ‘stop white men’, of course they don’t mean ‘all white men’, but seeing as white men are allowed to batter and sexually assault and get away with it… seeing as the law is made up mostly of white men… seeing as the media is almost entirely inhabited by white men… seeing that white male murderers are fetishised by pop culture… you can see why everyone else has had enough, despairing to the point to generalisation.

    And there’s that word - generalisation. It’s awful when people lump you all in together under one unpleasant bracket isn’t it? You won’t need to tell non-white people or women that as they’ve had a millennia of it.

    dehaans:

    The other reason for introducing Wilson so early in the film was that they wanted him to appear before any conspiracy elements started showing up, helping to show the character as trustworthy, allowing Rogers to seek his help in the middle of the movie.”

    There were debates about whether Rogers should have a romance with Romanoff, but they opted not to do it because it would sell out both characters. In particular, they felt that if that happened, it would appear that the only reason to have Black Widow in the film was as a love interest, and there was so much more her character could offer the story.”

    out of all the marvel affiliates i only truly trust the russo brothers

    Russo Brothers for every other Marvel movie ever please *punts everyone else out the studio*.

    Russo Brothers for everything.

    Syria: Before Peter Aaron

    "During a family vacation to Syria in 2009, architectural photographer Peter Aaron captured many of the country’s landmarks—historic mosques, Roman ruins, ancient citadels. Just two years later, the violent civil war erupted between government forces and insurgents. Over the course of the crisis, the incessant fighting has torn apart a nation and its heritage. By some estimates, more than 150,000 people have died; even the United Nations has quit keeping track. Historic architectural marvels—many which have stood for more than a thousand years—have been scarred by mortar or reduced to rubble by shelling and gunfire. Aaron’s lush photographs—on view at ARTspace gallery in Germantown, New York, until September 7th—are ghostly mementos of a time before the conflict. In Aleppo’s Great Mosque, its stately 11th-century minaret has been completely obliterated by tank fire. A medieval hilltop citadel in the same city served as a fortress for snipers and has suffered damage from a barrage of shells. The images still haunt Aaron. “We got to know some people during our three weeks there, and we wonder what’s happened to them,” Aaron says. “Are they all still alive?”" [text via]

    This week I finally declare my love for nbchannibal​ try to make sense of Hannibal, the serious show, and the Fannibals, it’s very silly fandom. Instead, I get lost in a haze of puppies. 

    But seriously, the Fannibals are some of my favorite fans. They were the first ones to respond to my request for more fandom blogs to follow and now my dash is mostly Hannibal. And I’m a little afraid. 

    Disclaimer: I am in no way affiliated with Tumblr or Yahoo Inc. - just a fan who spends too much time on the aforementioned website. I also make no claim to “Hannibal” or any of it’s related media. I sincerely do not want to be made into dinner.

  • Q: 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.

    My language is exactly the same. ^^

    My favorite thing about this is how completely chill and confident Steve is about Nat’s skills and the fact it’s fine to break into Fort Mead.
    I mean, this, right there IS Steve Rogers, who also doesn’t follow orders, work great with a team, and does what he wants, including stealing some US military property because fuck you world, ain’t got no time for bullshit. :D
