Coverage Of Pumpkin Fest Riot Compared To Ferguson Protests Exposes Media’s Overt Racism

jesuisperdu:

quickhits:

Worse, the Keene rioters are generally not described as rioters, but rather “rowdy” students or “drunken revelers.” Further, the people of Keene are being portrayed as the victims of the riot, while the citizens of Ferguson are portrayed as the perpetrators.

There will be no jokes about food stamps or welfare, because the perpetrators are white and that’s not the stereotype. No one will call the Keene rioters “thugs” or suggest the police should have shot them all. No one will point to the scourge of white on white crime. No one will accuse all white parents of not knowing how to raise law-abiding kids.

The difference between the coverage of Ferguson and Keene is the difference between black and white. When someone tells you “it’s not about race,” know they’re wrong.

y’all America is still racist as fuck. we need to keep getting real about this.

Are you a teen? This blog is for you!

“We are all broken, that’s how the light gets in.”

—   Ernest Hemingway (via adrenaline)

(Source: henretta84, via apiculturists)


“We are on red alert when it comes to how we are perceiving ourselves as a species…There’s no desire to be an adult. Adulthood is not a goal. It’s not seen as a gift. Something happened culturally: No one is supposed to age past 45 — sartorially, cosmetically, attitudinally. Everybody dresses like a teenager. Everybody dyes their hair. Everybody is concerned about a smooth face.”
 “I was often told that I wasn’t a thing…‘She’s not pretty enough, she’s not tall enough, she’s not thin enough, she’s not fat enough.’ I thought, ‘O.K., someday you’re going to be looking for someone not, not, not, not, and there I’ll be.’ ”
“I’ve been with a man for 35 years who looks at me and loves what he sees.”

In 15 seconds of dialogue Francis Wilkerson sums up what’s wrong with how women are criticized in our society and it’s great

I literally remember when this aired and something clicked in my head. He was putting to words what I kept seeing over and over in media without apology or explanation
