And when it comes to fantasies with no POC in them, that just tells me that they are getting their white supremacist fantasy made:

A world where no pesky POC exist, or if they do, they are unmistakably and undeniably EVIL so there’s no guilt in killing and massacring thousands of them.

They can be easily written off and forgotten. *coughtolkiencough*

There has been a big debate about it: can a black man play a Nordic character? Hang about, Thor’s mythical, right? Thor has a hammer that flies to him when he clicks his fingers. That’s OK, but the color of my skin is wrong?

Racist School Teacher tells Students they can’t write about Malcolm X because he’s Violent

I bet they didn’t say that when we had to write papers on Christopher Columbus. Or when they’re studying European world history. Did you skip over colonization and everyone involved? Or just Malcolm X who was a reactionary to that colonization? How about Hitler? Oh ok. You’ll silenced the oppressed but freely speak of the oppressors.

the american school system is a fucking joke

absolute props to the amazing parents who took a stand for their history and for their children’s education

and even it that were the case, isn’t the point of writing about folks to learn about them? isn’t that what history class is about? damn black folks can’t even be 3 dimensional

I’ve stopped being sorry for all my soft. I won’t apologize because I miss you, or because I said it, or because I text you first, or again. I think everyone spends too much time trying to close themselves off. I don’t want to be cool or indifferent, I want to be honest.

A vertical forest is expected to be completed this year in Milan. There are two tower apartment complexes which contain a total of 400 residential units. The facade of the buildings will be covered with 730 trees, 5,000 shrubs, and 11,000 perennial plants. It is expected to have the same ecological impact as 10,000 square meters of forest.
Aside from fighting smog and producing oxygen, the foliage is expected to provide insulation to the residential units.

Inherited wealth may be something easily squandered, but inherited poverty is a legacy almost impossible to lose.

For as long a we have a minimum wage that continues, that allows people to be put in situations where they’re in work and still living in poverty, you [parliament] are legislating that poverty.
