Reblog this if you know someone, or have been affected by someone, who needs a punch in the fucking face. People who need a punch in the fucking face affect the lives of many. There is still no known cure for people who need a punch in the fucking face, except a punch in the fucking face. 93% of people won't reblog this.. Why? Because.. they probably need a punch in the fucking face.
When we consider the myriad school shootings that have occurred between 1992 and 2002 (there have been twenty-eight cases), several constants stand out. All twenty-eight cases were committed by boys. All but one was committed by a white boy in a suburban or rural school. We speak of teen violence, youth violence, violence in the schools. but no one in the media ever seems to call it suburban white boy violence, although that is exactly what it is. Try a little thought experiment: Imagine that all the killers in the more famous shootings in the 1990s - Littleton, Colorado; Pearl, Mississippi; Paducah, Kentucky; Springfield, Oregon; and Jonesboro, Arkansas, were black girls from poor families who lived instead in New Haven, Boston, Chicago, Newark. Wouldn’t we now be having a national debate about inner-city black girls? Would not the media focus entirely on race, class, and gender?
Of course it would: We’d hear about the culture of poverty; about how life in the city breeds crime and violence; about some putative natural tendency among blacks towards violence. Someone would probably even blame feminism for causing girls to become violent in vain imitation of boys. Yet the obvious fact that these school killers were all middle-class white boys seems to have escaped the media’s notice, in part because race, class, and gender are only visible when speaking of those who are not privileged by race, class and gender but invisible when speaking of those who are privileged by them.

“When [X Factor contestant] Ray sings, music itself throws up. Not just a bit, like when you unexpectedly bring up half a gobful of baby sick and have to swallow it back down, but a lot. When Ray sings, music buckles in two, swings its jaws open and unleashes an unprecedented jet of acrid vomit. And it doesn’t stop vomiting until strips of stomach lining are hanging off its teeth and it’s spat its own ringpiece out like a hot rubber coin.”—Charlie Brooker (via jaffajam)
This link is one of the most exciting things that has happened to me today.
Interesting, I find it funny that people who live outside of Europe yet who are European in heritage have grown to disregard this.
um black historians been saying this shit for years…this isnt racist tho. no one is saying white people are strange…just they kinda different from us..but we knew this.
this becomes especially hilarious in the light of the tendency to white folks to relegate blackness to the bottom of the evolutionary scale. lol
I wish I could cheer along with other people for this, but I know it’s just going to cause more racist backlash from people who will throw a fit rather than accept science as truth, even when that’s what it is.
No no no no no. It’s the old “if men could menstruate” paradigm. We’ll just decide that having Neanderthal DNA is what makes us better.
