one time in an english class we were making notes about shakespeare’s life and the teacher was like “his father was a glove maker” and the guy next to me started laughing really hard so i looked over at him
his pen had stopped working before he could write “maker” so it just said “shakespeare’s father was a glove” and that was the funniest thing in the world to this guy for some reason
I’m white and I hate my hair. But I will not be denied a job for my hair. I will not have random people wanting to touch my hair. I will not be asked if I have a weave. I will not be kicked out of school for my hair. I may hate my hair, but will not be persecuted because of if. White people do not need the natural hair movement.
- Crisis Pregnancy Center Ads are Back - And more Deceptive Than Ever, Talking Points Memo, July 21
Last time we checked, lying to women isn’t medical care.
Crisis pregnancy centers (CPCs) pose as legitimate reproductive health centers. They have a track record of outright lying to women and work to dissuade people from exercising the right to choose. They often advertise as if they provide abortion services, drawing people in by promising free reproductive health services, including free pregnancy tests, ultrasounds, and options counseling.
but racism is like a thong that only happens in the U.S. & Europe is totes not racist ok
A Ku Klux Klan flag has been placed in an area of Belfast at the centre of a recent surge in racist attacks in the city.
East Belfast MP Naomi Long has condemned those who put up the symbol of the KKK movement, accusing them of heightening racist tensions in her constituency.
There has been a spike in racist attacks in Belfast, with the Police Service of Northern Ireland confirming its officers are investigating up to three racist incidents every day. A large proportion of racist attacks and intimidation is taking place in the east.
The Alliance party MP said the appearance of a KKK flag off Island Street in the east of the city gives “an even more sinister edge” to xenophobic attacks in the area.
Yet again we see those who wish to bully anyone different from them use flags and emblems to assert dominance and control over a community. To put up these flags in broad daylight shows just how brazen the culprits are.
To use flags hailing a hate group such as the KKK is sickening and lends a further menacing element to recent events. It is essential that every right-thinking person unites against those who engage in racist, bigoted or otherwise intolerant behaviour and does so with consistency.
The annual benchmark report on human rights and racial equality by the Northern Ireland Council for Ethnic Minorities, released last month, said there were 982 racist incidents in 2013-14 compared with 750 such incidents during the previous year.
It noted that over the last five years 75% of all complaints to the Equality Commission in Northern Ireland about harassment in offices, shops or factories are related to racial abuse and intimidation.
Over the last year Northern Ireland has become one of the worst hot spots for racist crimes and race-hate-linked incidents in the UK, and the authors of the report add that the region is home to only 1% of all the non-EU/EEA migrants who have come into the UK.
Let it Bleed, 1969
This is an excerpt of the song “Gimme Shelter.” The backing vocalist, Merry Clayton, had a small solo in the middle of the song, and since I believe she never got much credit for her vocals, I uploaded the isolated vocal track of her part. I always wondered who she was and I found out recently.She is a very experienced backup singer and has also done backup vocals (live and studio) for artists such as Ringo Starr, Ray Charles, Joe Cocker, Neil Young, and more. This solo may just make the song for me. Her voice is so raw and powerful. Each time I listen to it, I get chills. The effect is much stronger when her voice is isolated.
THIS IS AMAZING THIS IS AMAZING THIS IS AMAZING
THIS IS SO AMAZING I DON’T HAVE TIME TO ADDRESS OP’S RIDICULOUSLY SUPERFICIAL DESCRIPTION OF MERRY CLAYTON OR HOW SHE FUCKING MADE THIS SONG I’M TOO BUSY CRYING AT THE RAW POWER OF HER VOICE
TRUE STORY SHE RECORDED THIS AFTER GETTING A PHONE CALL AFTER MIDNIGHT FROM THE PRODUCERS. SHE LAID THIS TRACK DOWN AFTER BEING ASLEEP, WHILE WEARING ROLLERS IN HER HAIR AND A ROBE
OH YEAH AND SHE WAS PREGNANT AS FUCK.
SHE ALSO MISCARRIED AFTER THIS SESSION, SUPPOSEDLY FROM THE PHYSICAL/EMOTIONAL STRAIN FROM THIS SESSION
(SOURCE FOR ALL OF THIS)
SO THIS VOCAL TRACK IS REALLY FUCKING IMPORTANT AND REALLY KINDA FUCKING SACRED. EVERYONE CAN GLORIFY SOME WHITE ROCKER FOR STEALING BLACK MUSIC AND BEING DRUNK AND HIGH AS FUCK WHILE DOING SO BUT THE BLACK WOMEN LIKE CLAYTON WHO WERE THE BACKBONE AND SHAPERS
OF ROCK AND ROLL AND FUCKING WENT THROUGH SOME REAL ASS SHIT FOR IT ARE IGNORED
AND IF YOU WANT TO KNOW MORE ABOUT MERRY CLAYTON WATCH 20 FEET FROM STARDOM IT’S ON NETFLIX
she also recorded her own version of this song and it’s pretty
|Anonymous said: Towards the whole "pronouns hurt people's feelings" topic. Am I REALLY the only person on the planet that thinks people are becoming far to sensative? Nearly to the point that they shouldn't leave their little home bubbles in the case that a bird chirps next to them in a way that sounds like a mean word. Maybe, JUST MAYBE, we're becoming a little TOO coddling and people need to learn to deal with simplistic shit like words. And yes, I've been insulted and made fun of. I got over it. So can you.|
