What is wrong with the Media? Why aren’t they reporting about real issues like flooding or the water crisis in Flint?


Anyone living there right now to confirm this?

@elementsunbound ??

Yes, it’s true. GMA, weather channel covered it. There will be no disaster declaration because FEMA has no head.

CNN is too busy with crazy Trump to cover anything else.


She’s standing knee-deep in flood water, and her selfie is still cute as fuck.

Update: Governor has declared a state of emergency

Donald Glover photographed by Austin Hargrave for The Hollywood Reporter

The only person who seems more excited about his casting than Glover himself is his father, a Star Wars fanatic who, more lenient than Donald’s mother, introduced his son to the franchise when he was a boy. In fact, the first toy Donald Sr. purchased for his son was a Lando action figure, which is why one of the biggest thrills of landing the part was being able to call his father with the news. “He just kept saying, ‘Woooow,’ ” says Glover, who has since hosted his dad on the London set.

when u meet a poc and they introduce themselves w/the white pronounciation of their name like no sweetie you’re safe here, roll the r

Like you might have to pronounce your names 6 times to me slowly like I’m a fucking idiot but I’d rather look stupid and learn your real name than have you give me your shortened version or nickname to make your name more ‘convenient’ for me to say out loud

except like literally no, don’t say this to a poc who tells you the anglicized pronunciation of their name

i’ve seen a lot of poc calling out this post already but not many people have given longer responses so i will try to do that

1) my name is what i say my name is. when asked how to pronounce my name, sometimes i just say the anglicized pronunciation and sometimes i tell people “the anglicized pronunciation that i prefer is _____.” i literally never introduce myself with the vietnamese pronunciation of my name.

2) for the well-meaning ally, it might seem disrespectful to use an anglicized pronunciation. please consider that it is also disrespectful to use or ask that i tell you a pronunciation other than the one i’ve already given. to ask for or use another pronunciation is to defy what i am telling you. that’s rude and disrespectful.

3) to do so also shows how entitled you as a white person are. you are not entitled to my name, my language, or my culture. you can have access to those things if i invite you in.

4) “no sweetie you’re safe here” “i’d rather look stupid and learn your real name than have you give me your shortened version … to make your name more ‘convenient’ for me to say” you might be a good person and a good ally, but i’m inclined to think that you’re not. don’t assume that my decision to introduce myself with an anglicized pronunciation is for YOUR benefit. i would NOT introduce myself by a mispronunciation because i’m worried that my real name would be inconvenient for you. it is MY preference for you to use this anglicized pronunciation. please think about why you think that poc are doing these things for your benefit. please think about why you potentially consider poc to be so subservient as to mispronounce our own names SOLELY for YOUR convenience. it has nothing to do with you.

4.5) re: being a good ally to poc. we can’t tell the difference between a white person and a White Person TM, but in my personal experience most are a White Person TM.

5) try to think about this. “where are you from? no, where are you REALLY from? like, where is your FAMILY from?” vs. “how do you say your name? no, how do you REALLY say your name?” etc. it’s the same damn thing. you’re not entitled to anything other than what i say to you. if i tell you i’m from canada then you accept that as the answer. if i tell you my name is an anglicized pronunciation then you accept that as the answer.

i know a lot of white people reblogged the original post uncritically and i recognize that you are all trying and that you really are well-meaning in this sentiment. but please consider. if i wanted you to pronounce my name “properly,” i would have told you the “proper” pronunciation in the first place.

You may have seen these fliers going around on social media and just to be safe I’m warning you all that this is false. It was posted maliciously on reddit and spread around to get undocumented immigrants to disclose their documentation status. Likely thinking that some would get reported on or whatever intentions that were had here.
It’s spread so much that Starbucks even sent out memos to all their stores about this rumor. Spread the information that it is FALSE.

Just an update but they people who started this went to Twitter to impersonate Latinx people to spread the information, posted it in Spanish as well, and some pretended to be managers at certain Starbucks locations stating that they will still be honoring the “promotion.” So if you see a “ Starbucks manager” saying something like this over Twitter then they are most definitely fake and trying to lure people to that particular location.

The intention (which originated on 4chan, not Reddit like I initially said) was to hurt a liberal business.

“How about we meme “Undocumented Immigrant Day” at Starbucks into existence? Announce free coffee for all illegals on a certain date. August 11? 11 looks like II (for Illegal Immigrant). I’m open to suggestions there. Name a liberal place for all illegals to go at once and demand free stuff.”

Quickly other people on the /pol/ board saw this as an opportunity to call I.C.E. and they are clearly still trying to get people to go to certain locations with that intention. There’s a reason why certain people on 4chan are trying to lure undocumented immigrants to particular locations so be wary & spread this info!

Hey Everyone!! 

As some may be aware, I’m pretty worried about my pup and I’m working on getting her to the vet, and I’m anticipating a pretty hefty bill.
(There are things I KNOW are wrong with her, and Big things that if im right about may be fatal)  This is my bean look at her I love her, so fucking much. 

Anyways. I’m already low on cash because I’m an unemployed recent grad w/ loans and my own helping of mental and family issues… so if you are able to support me in anyway I would greatly appreciate it. 

For more detailed information on my commission set up, I have a page set up on my blog // here // with everything you could need.

If commissions aren’t you jam I also have a tiny // RedBubble // thing going 

Or if you only have pocket change I also have a // ko-fi // and I’m thinking of doing Doodle Days but that’s TBA still.

im crying

Do you know how many dogs I’ve met that get scared or anxious around men because in their previous home men hit them? A lot, and they are very protective of the women who have adopted them now.

Men who are violent towards women are often violent towards animals as well. They think we’re all chattel. If a man wants you to choose between your dog or cat or him, dump the guy. Those animals will love you for the rest of your life, loyal and true.

Actually, I have something to add.

The other day I saw a story where a woman was asking why her dogs had suddenly started growling at her boyfriend whenever he was in the same room as her son.

And my immediate thought was ‘that boyfriend has hurt the kid somehow.’

Spoilers: that was exactly the case.

Trust ur dogs when they say something is off.

The first time my sister came to visit, via plane, after I got my dog, pupper growled at her and wouldn’t go near her for the first day. Next visit was by car (two day drive)and pupper LOVED my sister. They snuggled and played and none of us could figure out why the change. We thought maybe the scent of my sisters cat had lingered on her clothes, making that first visit a rough one. Whereas when she came by car, the scent had had time to wear off. Well that was partially true…

Fast forward about six months when I went north to visit my family. My sister walked into my parents’ house and pupper ran to greet my sister. Stopped dead in her tracks and started growling and barking. Hackles raised, full protection mode. My sisters husband had just walked in behind her.

My precious puppy wanted NOTHING to do with him. She barked, growled, ran away, and sat between him and my sister. Y'all my dog had spent maybe a weekend a half around my sister but protected her like this was her flesh and blood.

Eventually, my sister filed for divorce on grounds of “Extreme and repeated mental, emotional, and sexual abuse.” Divorce was final in less than a month because her claims were substantiated.

Trust the dog, honey. They KNOW.

I’ve never owned dogs, but I used to work with horses (which are a lot like big dogs).

There was this one horse I worked with named Tonto. He was a doll. He followed me like a puppy, snuck treats out of my pocket, he was the sweetest thing. We were practically inseparable.

A guy I was considering dating came to visit me one day, and Tonto wanted NOTHING to do with him. Normally well behaved, he shoved himself between us and would NOT let this guy near me. He was stomping, acting really aggressive, and tried to bite the guy. This horse was practically dragging me back toward the barn. At that moment, despite being like, 17, I knew something was up, and ultimately things didn’t pan out for guy and me.

A year later I found out he had lied about his age (he said he was 18 but he was actually 27) he was arrested for sexually assaulting an 11 year old girl.
