Can we signal boost this creep?

One minute.

It took this man ONE MINUTE to respond to rejection with a rape threat

Remember that, guys, the next time you even think about getting mad at a woman for not writing you back.

"Statistically, a woman is more likely to be hurt by a man than she is to ever be eaten by a shark, hit by a car, be attacked by a bear, crash in a plane, or be bitten by a spider. When a woman expresses fear of any of these events, she is still seen as a rational person. When I tell people that I am afraid of swimming in the ocean because I’m afraid of sharks, they accept it almost without question. But, when I tell people that I’m afraid of men, that men scare me more than sharks and spiders and freak plane accidents all combined, I immediately lose their respect. I am considered elitist. I am considered sub-human."

A Benediction For My Daughter (via rococoswagbitch)

I’ve never been stung by a bee or bitten by a spider, but they scare me. Just seeing my younger sister menaced by bees when we were kids was enough to terrify me for life. If I had been assaulted (or worse) by a man, or if they did that to someone close to me, I’d spend the rest of my life suspicious of men too.

Ready for the scary part? I do know women who have been sexually assaulted. And, statistically speaking, you probably do too. So let’s wake up and acknowledge that creating safe spaces for women is important.

The thing that’s so disgusting about the murders of Trayvon Martin, Mike Brown, Sean Bell etc (a very long list) is that it’s not like we’re trying to figure out who killed them. We know perfectly well. We’re just trying to figure out if that black kid deserved to die. They’re humanity is put on trial, like being a person wasn’t enough. Black people literally have to prove that we’re worthy of living.

Who gets murdered in America

The murder rate in America among black men between the ages of 20-24 is over 100 per 100,000. If this group were a country, it would be more violent than Honduras, the world’s most violent nation. 

jesus, black males lead every category. Even “under 5”??

Darren Hunt of Utah

The murder of young Black Men by police continues.

oh for fucks SAKE

Y’all he was shot in the back…. HE WAS SHOT IN THE BACK…

http://www.sltrib.com/sltrib/news/58409680-78/family-hunt-moss-police.html.csp

He was carrying a sword? This mf in my geography class carried a sword to class everyday and when I expressed my discomfort it was dismissed. But this brotha was shot in the back.

and it was a blunted sword.. couldn’t have cut anybody… but white people walking around with loaded rifles in target…

Exactly! This is evil.

Damn. Niggas can’t even cosplay anymore? I would love to see the cosplay community say something about this but that definitely won’t happen

Also: this paper is edited by a clown. It should’ve been in the first fucking paragraph that this dude was cosplaying. I’m reading this shit wondering why the fuck this negro is walking down the street with a sword and obvious answer is hidden almost at the en of the article.

This dude was cosplaying.

He was dressed up in a costume.

Should all black people just stay home on Halloween this year?

Friendly reminder that the police shot a black cosplayer in the back

While there is a lot of appropriate rage about Ferguson right now, the killing of John Crawford III is getting less attention than it deserves. I put Shaun King’s tweets and history lesson on the matter in chronological order for easier consumption.

You really should be following Shaun King on Twitter.

in a way the Crawford shooting added fuel to the fire of the Mike Brown shooting, their closeness on the calendar making it painfully obvious that yes, cops treat black people differently. I hope that Crawford’s killers are held accountable for their negligence.

either there’s enough evidence to arrest Darren Wilson or there isn’t, the state’s Attorney General should make a statement to break this silence

or are they waiting for the FBI to make that call?
