there’s a comic book store in my town that gives ladies a 10% discount and the people who work there are really friendly so lots of ladies show up to hang out and buy comics and one time i was looking through some new releases and this guy walked in, saw all the ladies, did a double take, and said really loudly and condescendingly, ‘there sure are a lot of girls in here for a comic store!’ and laughed but no one else laughed with him and it was glorious

I really need you to take a look at this.

This is important.

Just your casual reminder that in this country if you are black and a victim they will dehumanize and demonize you and if you are white and a killer they will talk about how great you are. This. Is. White. Privilege. If I went out and literally murdered a bunch of people today and was like “I don’t regret it and I did it for fun” on national television they would still say nicer things about me in the media than they are saying about Mike Brown who was shot and killed by a police officer while totally unarmed. That is sickening. 

(And seriously, “dabbled in drugs and alcohol”? You mean like 95% of teenagers in the fucking U.S. and probably the world? Oh yeah, that’s something worthy of death. Fuck you, New York Times.)
