Author Chuck Palahniuk first came up with the idea for the novel after being beaten up on a camping trip when he complained to some nearby campers about the noise of their radio. When he returned to work, he was fascinated to find that nobody would mention or acknowledge his injuries, instead saying such commonplace things as “How was your weekend?” Palahniuk concluded that the reason people reacted this way was because if they asked him what had happened, a degree of personal interaction would be necessary, and his workmates simply didn’t care enough to connect with him on a personal level. It was his fascination with this societal ‘blocking’ which became the foundation for the novel.

Baltimore Police Claim Handcuffed Man [Tyree Woodson] Shot Himself in Jail

Either they think we are very stupid, or know they won’t be held accountable - either way, this is some serious BS!

This is not the first time either.
They claimed a handcuffed kid who was left handed shot himself in the head from the right in FL.

At this point, I don’t even think they think we’re stupid. They just don’t CARE. They have proven over and over again they can get away with this shit. They don’t NEED to come up with plausible evidence. They go on unpaid leave and go back to terrorizing Black communities. 

“Another similar situation occurred this year in Louisiana, when 22-year-old Victor White, III was killed with a gun in the back of a police car while handcuffed, that case too was ruled a suicide, even though he was shot in the back.”
Yup…

Little Richard being completely serious (x)

Reason I love Awards Shows #8947: Oddball presenter pairings like Little Richard and Buster Poindexter. 

Reason I love Award Shows #8948: People like Buster Poindexter having to stand around awkwardly while someone like Little Richard takes the mic and does something awesome like this. 

Reason I love Awards Shows #8949: That people like Little RIchard get the opportunity to talk truth to the industry. 

This is lovely.

Obama on gay adoption 


yeah totally ruining this country what a horrible guy

Fun fact: Obama has attempted to fix almost everything that he promised to fix, but the republicans have voted almost all of his bills out of congress. He’s not the problem.

That fact isn’t very fun

Style has a profound meaning to Black Americans. If we can’t drive, we will invent walks and the world will envy the dexterity of our feet. If we can’t have ham, we will boil chitterlings; if we are given rotten peaches, we will make cobblers; if given scraps, we will make quilts; take away our drums, and we will clap our hands. We prove the human spirit will prevail. We will take what we have to make what we need. We need confidence in our knowledge of who we are.

File this under facts on facts.

This makes me think of a beautiful post that I mentioned in one of my Read This Week features; a post by @HarrietThugman about Black people of other cultural backgrounds who diminish Black American culture, and shouldn’t….for it is so rich.

My cultural heritage involves a mixture of my love for some things specific to Jamaican culture (because of my background, being raised in a Jamaican family by Jamaican parents, but being raised in America and actually born in America) and some things specific to being an American Black (I love how Nikki says Black is the NOUN and American is the adjective), and some things that seems to connect Black people despite where in the diaspora we are.

What if verbal abuse left the same scars as physical abuse? Would it be taken more seriously? That’s what photographer Richard Johnson hopes to accomplish with his new photo project, “Weapons of Choice.”

The series uses a makeup artist to put bruises and scars on photo subjects. Embedded in these violent marks are some hateful words typically associated with abuse, such as “Stupid,” “Dumb,” “Trash” and others that are much, much worse.
