Potent minimalist art sends a strong message about police and vigilante brutality in America

Journalist and artist Shirin Barghi has created a gripping, thought-provoking series of graphics that not only examines racial prejudice in today’s America, but also captures the sense of humanity that often gets lost in news coverage. Titled “Last Words,” the graphics illustrate the last recorded words by Brown and other young black people — Trayvon Martin, Oscar Grant and others — who have been killed by police in recent years.

Let us not forget their voices

Apparently it’s not socially acceptable for a man to invite another man out just for coffee or to go out for a meal, in case it’s perceived as a date. Like it’s fine if you wanna go to the pub and drink beer and have a chat but make it non-alcoholic and suddenly you’re not straight anymore? You can go to the cinema together but ONLY if it’s an action movie. You guys can’t even just go shopping with each other. Oh masculinity, so fragile, so strange.

hi, so, uh

I assume a lot of people are hailing joan rivers as a feminist icon mainly because she opened comedy up to women through her standup

but, uh, unsurprisingly she was not the first to do that

image

that’s moms mabley.  she was a comedian in the 20th century and was pretty much one of the few popular female comedians during that time.  she did a lot of things people were uncomfortable doing at that time, like incorporating talks about racism into her standup and such.  she was really popular

(psst she was even doing comedy before joan rivers was born)

she also inspired quite a few comedians you probably know about today like bill cosby and whoopi goldberg (whoopi even did a whole documentary on her because she was so enamored with her)

she was also a lesbian and did standup in androgynous clothing a lot of the time.  and she was african american.  makes you wonder why you’ve probably never heard of her before huh

so before you go give all the credit to joan rivers for getting women into comedy or being a feminist icon or whatever, remember moms mabley and her contributions too

“Maybe it won’t work out. But maybe seeing if it does will be the best adventure ever.” (via sarahcosima)

“I wouldn’t necessarily mind people not knowing I’m gay, but I don’t like being thought of as straight — in the same way that I don’t mind people not knowing I’m a writer, but it would be awkward if they assumed I was an extreme skateboarder, because that’s so far removed from the reality of my life. But there is no blank slate where orientation is concerned; we are straight until proven otherwise. And if you’ve never seen how dramatically a conversation can be derailed by a casual admission of homosexuality, let me tell you, it gets awkward.” My Life as an Invisible Queer  (via sarahcosima)

Perfect example of how patriarchy uses racism and classism to prevent solidarity and create division between women.

My notebook has remained blank for months
thanks to the light you shower
around me. I have no use
for my pen, which lies
languorously without grief.

Nothing is better than to live
a storyless life that needs
no writing for meaning—
when I am gone, let others say
they lost a happy man,
though no one can tell how happy I was.

Ha Jin, “Missed Time,”  Poetry (July 2000)
