Truth can often be the bitterest fruit we swallow

What being an American is like. Well done, Japan—well done.

10 poems that look like what they mean

Originally posted on Qwiklit:

Poets employ various means to get their message across in their poems, ranging from rhyme scheme to alliteration. However, poetic meaning can also be translated visually through a form termed “concrete poetry;” indeed, numerous poets experiment with line breaks and typography to present their work in a way that ‘looks’ the way it is supposed to ‘mean.’…

Whitewashed ‘Exodus’ cast sparks a Twitter riot
Remember when Noah’s screenwriter explained that everyone in his movie was white because it was “mythical,” and because white people are apparently universal stand-ins for the human race?
Directed by Ridley Scott, the forthcoming Exodus: Gods and Kings stars Christian Bale as Moses, Joel Edgerton as Rhamses, and Aaron Paul as Joshua.

So brown people can be guards and trumpeters, just not given any speaking roles?

Is this pretentious white-washing shit that kills me. Its not fucking European history.  This is African history—not Asian , not Arab, NOT European. Now what would you dog asses do if re-wrote your history on screen and put that shit up with a completely non-white cast? You’d fucking cry tears of blood and order a lynch mob while telling us to have some pride in our history. Suck-tards.

Obama on gay adoption 


yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy

Fun fact: Obama has attempted to fix almost everything that he promised to fix, but the republicans have voted almost all of his bills out of congress. He’s not the problem.


Ummph.

““If you blame Native American communities for their poverty, remember that the entire continent was stolen from them.
If you blame Black American communities for their relative poverty, remember that Black Americans were stolen from a continent, trafficked, and enslaved for nearly 300 years.
Tell me again about how your family ‘started from nothing’ when they immigrated. Didn’t they start from whiteness? Seems like a pretty good start.
The American Dream required dual genocides, but tell me again about fairness and equal opportunity. Tell me about democracy, modeled after the Iroquois Confederacy. Tell me your proud heritage, and I will show you the violence that made it so.”
