This photo was taken over 20 years ago by Todd Robertson during a KKK rally in northeast Georgia. One of the boys approached a black state trooper, who was holding his riot shield on the ground. Seeing his reflection, the boy reached for the shield, and Robertson snapped the photo.
I think the officer’s expression says it all. This child standing before him is being taught how to hate even though he doesn’t understand it. He probably doesn’t understand the difference between this and Halloween.

If any post on my blog gets really big, I hope it’s this one.

this is really fucking sad
i think of everything we learn without even noticing

what guys say PMS does:

  • turns women into emotional bitches

what PMS actually does:

  • increases breast size from retaining water
  • increases sex drive
  • lowers a woman’s tolerance for sexism

also it ups our testosterone levels which makes their complaints incredibly ironic

MY DEAR FOLLOWERS.
If you only ever read and/or reblog one of my posts, I hope this will be the one. Due to some medical problems I am on two pretty serious medications. One is fairly affordable. The other one? Well…
The local Krogers charges over $200 PER MONTH.
I did some research and found out that COSTCO had it for “considerably cheaper.”  But I wasn’t a member of Costco. Come to find out, YOU DON’T HAVE TO BE A MEMBER to fill prescriptions at their pharmacy.
In that bag I’m holding is a 90 DAY supply of BOTH medications for…wait for it….$38. This is friggin awesome. I nearly cried when I found out. So please, share this info (if not necessarily this post). There are plenty Tumblr folks who are struggling with medication costs and this could really help them.
I hope I’ve already helped some of you. :)

Yes! If you happen to have access to the portal to the magical realms where Costco actually is a thing, then this is probably really good for you to know! 

Costco is amazing (and sometimes worth going in for a membership for bulk foods!)

This makes me angry.
Not because somebody found their necessary ‘scripts for $38 instead of $200, that’s fab. But because there are millions, if not tens of millions, of people out there who end up spending that $200 every month, and more, because they don’t have the resources - in terms of time, energy, or capacity - to do that research. Not to mention the people that simply give up, and stay sick.
I manage my mother’s health care, including her prescriptions, which - depending on where she is in the complicated Medicare Part D pricing scheme in any given month - can run anywhere from $300 to $1200 a month. Every time I discover some new plan, retailer, or other trick that saves her money, I think about what’d happen to her if I wasn’t here to figure this crap out. The elderly, the ill…on top of everything else they’re going through, in this country they are forced to navigate a hostile healthcare marketplace that’s designed to maximize profit…just like every other market.
The reason that there’s such a  wide range of prices - e.g., $200 vs. $38 - is because the pharmaceutical vendors are betting that patients won’t discover that they do not NEED to pay that much. The entire business model is based on deception. From the company that makes the drugs, to the pharmacy chain that sells them.
Which is a principle of the free market - buyer beware, an informed consumer is the best consumer, all that. But this isn’t a new car, or a computer, or a television. This is health care. By definition, the people that need these drugs are sick. Many of them are very sick, and that means diminished capacity. “Buyer beware” is not acceptable here. It’s like expecting someone to walk in to a Toyota dealership and negotiate for the best deal on a new Prius with a fresh skull fracture and partial blindness.
Treating health care - and prescription drugs - as just another product in the free marketplace is flat-out immoral.
Anyway…I’m ranting. This afternoon I spent 20 minutes pacing the aisles of my local CVS while on the phone in the with my mother’s new prescription provider, trying to find out why one ‘script was well over twice the expected price. Eventually I uttered the phrase, “You are saying a bunch of words that have nothing to do with what I just told you” before hanging up in disgust. Which was literally true: the rep started reading from a completely irrelevant script, and it was clear that he had no idea what I was talking about. Not worth my time. I’ll sort it out later.
But it shouldn’t be this hard, folks. It just shouldn’t. I’m young (ish), smart - if I do say so myself - and relatively adept at negotiating automated phone trees.
There’s an entire business model here predicated on the notion that a whole bunch of sick people just won’t have it in them to get the best price they can, and that…is…wrong.

It’s horrific.  It’s utterly fucking horrific.

So last night cops arrested 7 protesters, then turned to the rest of the protesters and told them “we’ll release them without bond if you leave (stop protesting)”

They literally turned their own dubiously legal arrests into a hostage situation. They took hostages. Ferguson PD is a terrorist organization and they aren’t even trying to hide that fact any more.

Look at this

"Ellen Reads Her Chinese Viewers’ Names"

aka

Ellen mispronounces Chinese people’s names and she and her audience laugh at them cuz it’s racistly funny apparently

image

image

Ellen uses “American” interchangeably with “English”, as in, the language.

At 2:30: "This one, they didn’t even try to do American, this is just Chinese."

The comments are turned off on this video, but how was this even cleared to be aired?? Fuck you Ellen. This isn’t the first time you’ve been racist on your show.

This is why you weaboos/koreaboos/white ppl CANNOT give yourself a “japanese” or "korean" or "chinese" name for yourself (or any name from a language and culture that’s not your own). Whites take our names as jokes and we’re mocked for it in real life and in the media. 

image

We’re constantly othered, demeaned, and fetishized. Trash like you butcher our names and turn them into racist caricatures.

Our names are precious and beautiful and meaningful in ways you can’t begin to understand. Our names are carefully crafted together by our parents/family.

You trash don’t deserve to utter our names. Fuck you.
