“It’s easy to treat this enthusiasm for stop-and-frisk as just another instance of Trump’s ignorance. He doesn’t know that it’s unconstitutional.

With his rhetoric of law and order at the debate and at the town hall, Trump underlined the core conceit of his candidacy: that people of color—either citizens or otherwise—are the principal threat to the United States.”

Vogue chose Lupita Nyong’o for the cover after the Oscar winner’s new film Queen of Katwe where she played a Ugandan girl who excels at the game of chess. The model and actress invited Vogue to visit her home in Kenya to show the beauty of her native home and her family.
She marked the importance of returning to your roots to share where you’ve come from.
Lupita told the magazine she hopes to work with directors Kathryn Bigelow or Ava DuVernay, and possibly even bring the story of social activist Assata Shakur to mainstream media.
… And nothing can stop her!

He saw the sigil more than once in the Wasteland.
The way his life had worked out, he was a scav. His people had fallen
away. He had the dented small car, his name, Sydney (they all missed Sydney,
his people said) and his keen, hungry eyes. The Wasteland, cruel and beautiful
in its sand and stone, greys and browns, and rare rusted buildings, was his
For all the vast and curving contours of the Wasteland, he craved
I thought I was out of tears after yesterday and the night before. I was wrong. This was just lovely, thank you thank you. (And thank you for finding us @flamethrowing-hurdy-gurdy, letting us see you and share with you and drink with you. As was the theme of the weekend: I am glad I got to experience this with you. ♥)
I mean one of you did legit say to me ‘So you’re our Max?’ when I admitted to identity problems and becoming nonverbal when things got too rough and I did NOT tell @thebyrchentwigges that so, man, how?
This is so fucking close to reality it’s not even…I don’t know how to process.
Thank you, Boltcutters, for being welcoming. Thank you for being encouraging even when I wasn’t very responsive. And, you know, thank you for…understanding and respecting certain things.

Today’s my mega-commute day, which gets in the way of proper obsessing. And then there’s that whole reality-show-to-determine-the-most-powerful-person-on-earth tonight. But those trivialities aside, I’m looking forward to rewatching Poe Party Ch. 6: Spirits of the Dead about a million times.
It’s so good!
