Death. The big sleep. Deep down, fearing the Reaper is the reason why everyone’s so messed up in their heads. They know the end is nigh and there’s nothing they can do about it, and it drives them nuts and they live their lives with one eye on the clock. We don’t have to do that. We can smash the clock to pieces. That is an incredible blessing. God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes, for when they shall arise from the dead they are as angels which are in Heaven.
I have nothing to offer you. Except, maybe, the truth.
*colour means nothing* (except the fact that PoC are socially, economically and politically marginalised from the moment they enter society because of their race, colour or ethnicity)
*we’re all human* (although PoC are constantly dehumanised, under-represented and their humanity constantly challenged by systematic racism thoroughly ingrained into our social consciousness) Iggy is disgusting.
AKA, I’m not racist, because I’m fucking a black dude and he lets me call him “my nigga”.
When will people realize that ‘colorblindness’ isn’t a solution for racism, it’s just another way to erase the experiences of POC?
And when you erase our experiences, you’re practicing white supremacy.
And why the heck does she feel the need to justify dating her own boyfriend?? Like “oh btw any white people looking at this - equality is actually good! See me dating someone I wouldn’t usually date? It’s cool!” Who thinks about racist white peoples approval that much and goes out of their way to act like dating a black person is something that needs any explanation aside from “I love him”. WTF?
ASAP Rocky hinted at racist commentary from others being a factor into he and Iggy breaking up. But then again he also pushed the whole “She’s not racist…because she dated me!” thing too so idk…
#this is just such a fucking sassy remark like#it sounds like something my mother would say to my spoiled sister#i never really stopped to think about it before but damn steve#it’s almost childish you are being a chiLD (via marvelobsessions)
That’s why I love it so much though. Because it’s so, so easy to forget this — SHIELD constantly forgets this — but Steve *is* a child. He was twenty-six years old and terrified when he died. And to him, that was maybe ten days ago. Just — ten days ago, he died. Eleven days ago, he watched his best friend and protector fall to his death in a clusterfuck he will always believe was his fault. Ten days ago, he died while the listening to Peggy cry on the other end of a static-filled radio. Ten days ago, he was still in 1945. He was supposed to leave it; it wasn’t supposed to leave him. And he woke up, and everyone he loved was gone, and now he’s confronted with an agency that’s lying to him about everything and he’s just found in their storage facility the exact weapon that killed the person he loved most and he’s arguing with a man who looks far too much like someone he called a friend, who he knows now is dead, who died violently in a car crash, and he doesn’t know Tony well enough to know this is how he deals with fear, so to him, this is just…someone with money, with all the privilege and padding he and Bucky never had, who would never have to go to war if he didn’t want to, making light of a situation way too close to Steve’s chest.
Steve was being prickly as hell through most of this movie, but he was bleeding out and in pain and had no one to bleed on. The comment he makes to Tony, about knowing guys with none of that worth ten of him? Imagine all of the people he was thinking about then. All of the people he knew he’d never see again; who he wished he wasn’t standing there to never see again. Trying to organize a time bomb and remembering the Commandos. Trying to co-lead with a man he doesn’t yet understand, and remembering Bucky. Trying so hard not to keep seeing him fall. Being expected to be above all of those messy human emotions, because he’s Captain America, and while he was asleep that name became a legend so much bigger than any real, living person could be.
He’s only twenty-six.
I just made myself sad.
They’re all being influenced by the scepter.
None of the dialogue in this scene is actually them.
Yes Steve is confused and a bit on edge throughout, but for this particular scene, they are not themselves.
Tony would never actually say “Let the hulk run around and destroy everything” now would he? But he does in this scene.
I wouldn’t put too much weight in anything said in this scene. The scepter takes how they already feel and emphasises it to a dangerous point.
I fucking love watercolour tattoos
Wait a minute…
I have been laughing at this for hours now…
So, true story. The woman in this photo is Kendra Kaplan. Her husband was in Iraq for twelve months but the military has this thing called leave. Some of us may recognize the concept from old episodes of Star Trek. In this photo she is five months pregnant after conceiving her second child during her husband’s leave. That envelope in her hand is the ultrasound results. She waited for him to come home to find out if it was a girl or a boy.
There’s been several articles about it.The photo resulted in this woman receiving so much hate mail, from both internet cut-ups and the actual media, that she even took a paternity test and provided proof of her husband’s leave schedule. Her real life friends have stopped talking to her over these rumors.
Oh, and by the way, that baby bump is a two year old by now. People are still shitting on this woman over a nasty internet meme two years later.
So in short, you’re mocking a faithful wife for something that isn’t any of our damn business anyway and has long since been disproven.
Good job Internet.
it just lives on.. nothing changes. ever thing that someone does that is actually great and not effecting anyone.. Is “wrong” to them. -_-

Nicki Minaj shining a light on the differences on acceptable sexuality from white women and black women.
While it has a good deal to do with color, it also has to do with the fact of how her sexuality is used.
The women above her could arguably be said to be catering to the sexual needs/wants/fantasies of men (Sports Illustrated is ESPECIALLY known for catering to a male gaze.) While Nicki Minaj has continuously used her sexuality to empower herself. Her sexuality isn’t for men, it’s for her own self. And THAT is a huge problem. Sexuality that isn’t designed for male consumption is deemed unacceptable and threatening. She is powerful, demanding, uncompromising, and men are weak, so that scares them.
And it’s also because she’s of Indian/Black background, no doubt about it. It’s not just racist, it’s also sexist.
theee fucking bolded.
