this morning, police raided Greater St. Mark school/church in Ferguson, MO (formerly called St. Sebastian’s Parish).
please please please boost this. help these organizers recover the supplies they lost, and share just how fucking far these cops will sink to make the people of Ferguson suffer.
FYI Israel has resumed bombing Gaza and has already injured 2 children.
The total Palestinian casualties caused by Israel today were 3 dead — including a 3 year old girl — and 40 injured. Many of these casualties were from the al-Dalou family, whose home in the Sheikh Radwan area was targeted in an airstrike. In Israel’s previous massacre in Gaza in November 2012, Israel killed 12 members of this same family in another airstrike.
have you ever started hating a character because someone you dont like really likes that character
how did you send me this and I saw it right as I was complaining about what utter trash fic for one of my otps is on twitter? how sway?
but yes ppl reccing one good fic and then the rest of their selection is terrible, but that list is held as gospel. like no, stop, your opinion is bad, your interpretations are garbage, please don’t look at my favorite characters, bye.
Going on right now in Ferguson: Police are raiding a church that has been stocked with medical supplies, food, and tear gas recovery kits for community members engaging in protests. This cannot be allowed to continue.
Stand up, speak out.
Because it’s still happening, i’m making this post
STOP USING THAT MILKY WASHED OUT PSD ON PEOPLE WITH OLIVE/BROWN/DARK SKIN
not only is it ugly anyway, but it lightens skintone, and that’s obviously a problem. that psd is only made for pale people and its meant to only compliment pale people - do not use it on brown/black! this is problem not only found in the 5h fandom, but all around tumblr as well. you need to understand that whitewashing poc is wrong and if you honestly don’t know why please google it.
don’t be afraid of vibrance and high saturation, it doesnt matter if it was a 2011 trend or w/e, it looks better than those milky psds. use more yellows and reds in your curves - brighten your colors!
i’ve made two things to help people edit less like this and here are the links:
JUST STOP USING THAT UGLY MILKY WASHED OUT PSD
Y’all remember that time when I told these roleplay helpers to stop whitewashing people of color’s skin when they make edits, and lost some friends over it? Yep.
For those who are interested, here’s the firsthand account from the Amnesty observers’ team, who are still in Ferguson, of what they experienced last night. You can also find some of the personal Twitters of the team members on that page.
If you’re just catching up, this is Amnesty USA’s press release from when they first dispatched observers (their own link is broken) and a more personal blog post from a member of the delegation.
if i ever stop reblogging this it’s because i’m dead and in my grave.
