Emma Sulkowicz is on the cover of this month’s New York Magazine and that is the coolest thing wow

DUUUUDE this is a huge fucking deal honestly

I think mal0cchi0 raised a really pertinent point when she criticized the term “sexual revolution” as unnecessarily sexualizing the struggle against sexual assault for page views or whatever. I agree w her.

yeah like they decided to characterize it as a “different kind of sexual revolution” rather than actually having the headline mention rape. i am glad that she is getting this much exposure though, she is awesome

that’s a great point i never thought of.if one already knew the story then the words “sexual revolution” make sense, but if they didn’t know - the cover could go in a very different direction without reading that tiny text of “against assault.”

How Trayvon Martin can be killed for walking back to his crib for wearing a hoodie, but 200-300 white kids can break into a black Ex- NFL players vacation…

Yeah it’s been a while and I honestly forgot a lot of chunks from the story, like what was in the bag (I knew it was candy and tea, I just meant by what his first sight of treyvon was so he didn’t know yet until confrontation) and all that, but I was mostly trying to just get out the part where he didn’t intentionally kill a kid for being black. Maybe that’s beside the point, I’ll just so tired of race being such a high focus

It is very tiring, but it doesn’t remove the fact that it is important.

The statistics are there. This happens more than it should. Blacks are thugs when unarmed and do nothing, but white people are just mentally ill when they go through mass killings with a weapon. 

Even you’re still doing it. “slightly sketchy”?
What’s sketchy about a lone kid on his phone walking home?

You’re justifying Zimmerman’s actions like he meant no harm, but he was the one who decided that following a KID fully armed with a GUN was the right thing to do. “The kid disrespected him…”? What’s disrespectful about asking a stranger why they’re following him and chasing after him like he’s a criminal? Zimmerman pursued Martin with zero evidence of any wrongdoing, only assumptions. 

You can continue to ignore race if you’d like, but it doesn’t change the fact that Blacks are continuously placed in these stereotypes and are punished for it consistently. It also doesn’t change the fact that Zimmerman followed a kid with a gun because he thought he was up to something. And the fact that he didn’t have to take responsibility for shooting Martin is outrageous and a huge injustice. Not even manslaughter? Zimmerman created the situation.

I’m ignoring the racial aspect

You really shouldn’t ignore the race part, because George Zimmerman profiled Treyvon Martin. He looked at Treyvon Martin and decided he was up to no good. That’s profiling. He followed him, armed. 
George Zimmerman is not “neighborhood patrol”, because there isn’t a patrol part to it. He was neighborhood WATCH. 

And “bag filled with who knows what” was known: skittles and a tea.

Zimmerman followed a kid he knew nothing about aside from assumptions and armed with a gun.

The story has been out for a while so you can educate yourself better than this with what’s in the actual facts of the case.

You’re right, Zimmerman probably wasn’t intentionally trying to kill Martin, but that doesn’t justify his actions leading to Martin’s death.

The guy was neighborhood patrol and he didn’t even act against treyvon. Social media just didn’t talk about those things.

You can say whatever I’m just gonna stop there.

thanks for the permission to say whatever. neighborhood patrol =/= cop. and it doesn’t give anyone the right to profile and follow someone. neighborhood watch means you call the cops if you think something’s going on.

glad you’re gonna stop there because your misinformation and justification of the killing of a black kid is terribly depressing.

FACT CHECK TIME.

John Crawford was holding a toy gun as he stood in the toy section of a Walmart. Before the police shot him to death in that same aisle, John managed to say, “It’s not real.” But it was too late for John.

Sean Bell was going to get married. One night, he was driving away from his bachelor party with his friends, Joseph and Trent. Suddenly, he hit a minivan. Four undercover police officers from the minivan began to shoot at them without warning, firing a total of 50 bullets at the three unarmed men. A wounded Joseph turned to Sean and said, “S, I love you, son.” Sean’s reply: “I love you, too.” Joseph and Trent survived, but their best friend, Sean, didn’t make it.

One of the witnesses in the Trayvon Martin trial, Rachel Jeantel, was on the phone with Trayvon moments before the scuffle with George Zimmerman that ended his life. One of the last things she heard the unarmed Trayvon say to the man who was following him with a gun that fateful night: “Why are you following me for?”

Michael Brown died August 2014. Ferguson, Missouri, police officer Darren Wilson shot him at least six times, twice in the head. Michael was not armed. His friend and eyewitness reported that Michael said: “I don’t have a gun. Stop shooting.” Minutes later, he was on the ground, bleeding. Dr. Michael M. Baden, the man who did Michael’s autopsy, told the New York Times, “In my capacity as the forensic examiner for the New York State Police, I would say, ‘You’re not supposed to shoot so many times.’”

Amadou Diallo died right outside his own apartment in the Bronx. He was unarmed. Four police officers shot 41 bullets, hitting Amadou 19 times. Later, they claimed that they had mistaken Amadou for a serial rapist. That same day, some of the last words he said to his mother as he spoke over the phone were, “Mom, I’m going to college.”

Eric Garner died July 2014. He was unarmed. Police officers were trying to arrest him for allegedly selling untaxed cigarettes. Eric suffered from asthma, and as a police officer put his arm around Eric’s neck during the arrest, he managed to gasp, “I can’t breathe!” The New York City medical examiner’s office ruled Eric’s death a homicide, pointing out that the officer’s chokehold might have been a big factor.

Jonathan Ferrell had been in a traffic accident and was knocking on a homeowner’s door for help. He was unarmed. A video later used at the trial showed that when police officers approached him, Jonathan held his hands out in a non-threatening manner. The police officers never identified themselves. They fired 12 times, and 10 of those bullets hit him. Even as Jonathan lay on the ground, bleeding and dying from 10 gunshot wounds, the officers handcuffed him. Jonathan’s dead body remained handcuffed all the way to the medical examiner’s office.

Oscar Grant was on a subway train in Oakland when a police officer forced him out of the car and onto the subway platform. Oscar was lying down when a second police officer shot a bullet into his back. “You shot me! You shot me!” Oscar yelled before he died. That officer later testified that he meant to use his Taser on Oscar instead of his handgun. A court later ruled that the two had no legal reason to get Oscar — who was unarmed — off the train.

Kimani Gray was standing on a street in Brooklyn when police officers approached him. The officers claimed that when they approached Kimani, he pulled a gun from his waistband and pointed it at them. But one eyewitness, Tishana King, said Kimani never pointed a gun. She also said the police officers didn’t identify themselves when they approached. Police officers shot Kimani at least seven times, even though Kimani hadn’t shot a single bullet. One witness said some of Kimani’s last words were, “Please don’t let me die.”

Kendrec McDade died after a man called Oscar Carillo made a phony 911 call, telling police officers that he had just been the victim of an armed robbery. He later admitted that he had lied about the guns. The two officers eventually found Kendrec in an alleyway. They began shooting after Kendrec apparently moved his hands to his waistband. But Kendrec didn’t have a gun on him. All he had was a cellphone in his pocket. Court documents show that Kendrec’s last words were, “Why did you shoot me?”

Final fact check: All 10 of these men were black.

On the contrary, the parents of said kids threaten to sue him for posting the pictures that their kids posted on twitter and IG? That is the America we live in. Marinate on that.

Not addressing that other story, the media actually failed to share that treyvon actually assaulted the cop who was only acting out of self defense and accidentally killed him… So…

there was no cop. treyvon was followed and profiled by a regular guy who then confronted treyvon. and it may have been labeled as ‘self defense’ in the courtroom, but it’s bullshit.

Conversation I overheard at work

Customer:How can you do this job (stripping)? Isn't it degrading having to take your clothes of for money?
Dancer:You're the guy that just forked out $300 for me to take my clothes off. Isn't it degrading having to pay that much before a girl who looks like me will take her clothes for you?
