*watches Jon Stewart’s comments on Ferguson* hey look it’s a white man getting heaps of credit and adulation for saying the exact same shit that black people have been saying for weeks now. how unexpected.
It’s even funnier when you see the White Tears in the comment section saying EXACTLY what the actors say in the video.

i’m going to make myself speak at least once every lecture so that he can’t not notice me EVEN THOUGH i tremble and my body gets stiff like it’s in rigor mortis
today my environmental ethics professor talked about rape culture so i asked him if he’d heard of that nail polish that detects when rohypnol is in a drink and said it was ridiculous how far people will go without just teaching men not to rape and you know what he said? he said that it’s just another part of rape culture, it’s just another way of telling women we’re responsible for taking precautions
i’m going to fall in love with him, help
okay am i going to feel inadequate and like a doomed loser who’s wasting her time and money every time i do biology work?
- Do not forget Michael Brown
- Do not forget how the media dehumanized him and tried to justify his murder
- Do not forget how peaceful protests were painted as savage riots
- Do not forget police armed with military grade weapons terrorized and arrested black civilians
- Do not forget Darren Wilson being awarded over $200,000 in fundraiser donations for murdering an unarmed black child
- Do not forget that this system was not built to defend us, but to control us
- Do not forget Ferguson
Man-made water scarcity and ubiquitous water conflicts can be minimized with the recognition of water as a common resource. Water conservation movements are also showing that the real solution to the water crisis lies in people’s energy, labor, time, care, and solidarity. The most effective alternative to water monopolies is water democracy. The current water war unleashed by multinational corporations can be won only through massive movements for water democracy.

i was talking to my dad about ideas for a project in environmental science and he told me his plan to save the world (my dad works in the oil business… in Texas… and one of the last times we talked, he told me that the earth was for humans to take/use as much as we wanted)
first of all, he thinks we should take all of the trash in landfills and stuff it in the pockets left from drilling oil
his second scheme is drilling a hole down to the core of the earth (…) and using it as an incinerator for our garbage
oh, and he doesn’t believe that fracking poisons water or that there’s a remotely harmful level of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere
