the deliberate care taken to make sure uhura was in this shot will never not be funny to me
|—||Don’t Sanitize Nelson Mandela: He’s Honored Now, But Was Hated Then. If we turn the late South African leader into a nonthreatening moral icon, we’ll forget a key lesson from his life: America isn’t always a force for freedom. (via kenyatta)|

I feel obligated to reblog every post that has the Robin Sparkles gif in it.
I question Hong Kong’s placement on this list though. Since, you know, they don’t have an elected government.
I mean they’re not coerced into doing much, so they have a lot of personal freedoms, but those freedoms are all guaranteed by a group of officials appointed by China.
I KNOW THIS IS SUPPOSED TO BE PRETTY AND COOL BUT I CAN’T STOP LAUGHING BECAUSE IT LOOKS LIKE IT’S FLYING UP AND THEN IT DECIDES IT GOING TOO FAR AND TRIES TO TURN AROUND AND IT KEEPS FLOATING AWAY AND ITS SAYING ‘SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT SHIT’
Tumblr in a nutshell
what does this have to do with loki
Brad you listen to me and you listen to me carefully you need to get the fuck out while you still can
people who go into tags just to be mad about the contents of said tag
I’ve been laughing for 4 minutes
my school is talking about internet safety or something
Joseph Stalin raises his head, a sly twinkle in his eye as he meets the bald man’s suggestive gaze. “Walter…” He purrs, dragging his tongue along the underside of his mustache in anticipation. “I see you’ve finally arrived.”
"Oh, Walter," The man chuckled, mustache quivering in delight. "I am the police.”
Now read this again, this time knowing that Stalin actually raped people.
he sank the boat he was working on just to kill the captain
This fucking guilt trip white people love to put people on.
"Do you want me to be ashamed that I was born white!??"
No, you should be ashamed that you had to make this about you and yours and missed the entire point.
Oh hey, it’s the “you can’t be racist against white people” crowd.
Not that I’m equating casual blanket blame for all racism with racism-spawned abuses suffered by people around the world. But you know what? There is no ethnicity that has not ever experienced racist sentiment. It’s an evil that is firmly rooted in human nature, and expunging it will take time.
I didn’t hurt anyone on the basis of their race in my life, and I’m not part of propagating this system; don’t typecast me because white people managed to get more power than other ethnicity in a time when racism wasn’t considered wrong.
Yes, I just did what the post warns against. The post is about white people, and their supposed tendency to make everything about them and ignore the racism and inequality around them. Well you know what? Every group focuses on themselves. The whole point of my argument is that group behavior is universally atrocious; judge people as individuals, or you’re prejudiced.
You know, sometimes I forget that all the social justice that isn’t overstatements, ignorance and complete inability to debate ideas without simply parroting dogma isn’t on tumblr because it’s actually out there trying to change the world. Sorry I turned your brief, ignorant attempt to find someone you can morally justify hating and mocking into a rant.
