    If the point of the Big Bang Theory was to show that male nerds can be just as sexist as male jocks then well done I guess

    The urban uprising, part of what was often called “THE LONG, HOT SUMMER,” had actually begun in 1964. When a white policeman in Harlem shot a black youth in July 1964, a similar disturbance flared (though on a lesser scale than the Watt’s riots.) Rochester, Jersey City, and Philadelphia exploded as well. From 1964 to 1966, outbreaks of violence rippled across many other northern urban areas, including Detroit, where 43 people were killed.


    Please pray for all the innocent people there. Even little kids between the age of 2-10 years have been injured.

    i find it so disgusting that there are people who find it appropriate to even look at a leaked nude, let alone post it. how many discussions about consent do we have to have before everyone realizes the importance of it? even looking up these nudes out of curiosity is gross. you don’t have permission from the victims in question to look at or post these pictures, so don’t. it’s not rocket science.

    Today Also Marks the Anniversary of Emmett Till’s Murder

    On August 28, 1955—eight years before the March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom—Emmett Till was murdered in Money, Mississippi for allegedly flirting with a white store clerk, Carolyn Bryant.

    Bryant’s husband, Roy, and his half brother J. W.  Milam kidnapped the 14-year-old Chicagoan from his great uncle’s home and beat him, shot him in the head, tied his body to a large metal cotton gin fan with barbed wire and dropped him into the Tallahatchie River. Three days later the teenager’s bloated, mutilated body was pulled from the river.  

    Till’s mother, Mamie, insisted on an open-casket funeral for her only son so that the world might see the brutality he suffered. Two Black publications, Jet and The Chicago Defender, ran pictures of Till’s casket. 

    Despite overwhelming evidence of their guilt, the two white men who killed Emmett Till were acquitted by an all-white jury. They went on to sell the story of murdering the teenager to Look magazine for $4,000.

    The horrific death of Emmett Till is largely credited with intensifying the push for Black voter registration in Mississippi and serving as a catalyst for the civil rights movement in general.

    RIP Emmett Till [July 25, 1941 - August 28, 1955]

    Israel on Sunday confiscated nearly 1,000 acres of privately owned Palestinian land near an Israeli settlement south of Bethlehem in the West Bank — a move described by Israeli rights group Peace Now as “unprecedented in its scope since the 1980s.”

    Settlements built on Palestinian land occupied by Israel, including East Jerusalem, are deemed illegal by the United Nations. Israel’s refusal to halt their construction and expansion has at times arrested the peace process and increased resentment and distrust among Palestinians.

    re: the context for this was two bridesmaids who were at a photoshoot were walking by the kid and parent, so that was probably the prompt for the question. not holding my breath if the dad gave a just answer or not though.. but yeah it was the most genuinely inquisitive, generic little boy voice you can imagine…
