During World War II, Josephine Baker served with the French Red Cross and was an active member of the French resistance movement. Using her career as a cover Baker became an intelligence agent, carrying secret messages written in invisible ink on her sheet music. She was awarded the Croix de Guerre, and received a Medal of the Resistance in 1946. In 1961 she received the highest French honor, the Legion d’Honneur awarded by then President Charles de Gaulle.
Our loss, U.S.A….

If you don’t admire the shit out of J. Baker, who was also pretty openly bisexual and adopted NINETEEN children in addition to the badassery mentioned above, I want you to go sit in the corner and think about your life choices.

um she was also a huge civil rights activist and her refusal to perform for segregated audiences at major clubs that were fallin over themselves to book her helped de-segregate vegas performance venues
aaaand she had a pet cheetah

aaand she slept with Frida Kahlo.

"I live in a neighborhood where my husband & I are 1 of the 3 Black families that live here.. Tonight the KKK knocked on our door!!! I was already looking out the window and seen them coming down my driveway. I screamed for my children to come upstairs in my room and into my master bath. . As I seen there faces in fear.. my mind flash back to Malcom X. My oldest understand but not the rest. My husband prides his self on teaching his wife & family self defense when he not home…. My heart was pounding! Palms sweating! Voice weak.. I look at my son.. And my mind drifted to Micheal Brown, Treyvon.Martin, Shawn Bell. WE legal over here.. everything registered! As the knocks kept coming .. I mustard up the voice strength to say just a minute! My body weak.. but my mind strong! I open the door.. Scope on! Beam on! Safety off!!! WHAT CAN I DO FOR YALL!!! Cause you at THE WRONG HOUSE! #FacesPriceless!! I will Protect. My Home, My Children, MY LEGACY!!!"

*bows down*

YESSS MAMA

It deeply saddens me that people still need to protect themselves from such hateful people by threatening violence. Hatred just leads to more violence upon violence. Less hate, more love needed in this world.

The fucking KKK came up to her door, in a world where white cops

COPS

can gun down teens just walking down the street

and you think the problem is how SHE acted, without firing a single bullet, in her OWN HOME

wow… you desperately need to check out the ferguson tag, because you’re expecting people to play nice with those who have been murdering them since forever, and that’s fucked

Did pokemeidareu just call a black woman holding a weapon while answering her door to an established terrorist group devoted to the murder of black people as her “fighting hate with hate”????????

John Grisham: men who watch child porn are not all paedophiles - Telegraph

kyriarchy:

myjawislikeashovel:

Reminder to always illegally obtain copies of Grisham’s books if you hate yourself that much, but just stop buying this shit stain’s books.

We have prisons now filled with guys my age. Sixty-year-old white men in prison who’ve never harmed anybody, would never touch a child,” he said in an exclusive interview to promote his latest novel Gray Mountain which is published next week.

"But they got online one night and started surfing around, probably had too much to drink or whatever, and pushed the wrong buttons, went too far and got into child porn."

Those poor sixty year old white men, going too far and masturbating to the rape of a child :(((

The author…cited the case of a “good buddy from law school” who was caught up in a Canadian child porn sting operation a decade ago as an example of excessive sentencing.

"His drinking was out of control, and he went to a website. It was labelled ‘sixteen year old wannabee hookers or something like that’. And it said ‘16-year-old girls’. So he went there. Downloaded some stuff - it was 16 year old girls who looked 30.

"He shouldn’t ’a done it. It was stupid, but it wasn’t 10-year-old boys. He didn’t touch anything. And God, a week later there was a knock on the door: ‘FBI!’ and it was sting set up by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police to catch people - sex offenders - and he went to prison for three years."

I hope John Grisham knows that by adding in that bit about the 16 year olds “looking older” than they are, he is sounding exactly like a pedophile. 

Instead of buying John Grisham’s shit books, consider instead staring blankly at a wall of drying paint—it will be a better use of your time.

prisons are actually full of young men of color for nonviolent drug offenses but he’s worried about crusty old white pedophiles. ok.

don’t even get me started on the implication that sexually exploiting 16 year old girls “isn’t so bad” compared to 10 year old boys. I guess it’s harder to write them off as “wannabe hookers”.

beautifuloutlier:

There are surprising parallels between GamerGatorade and the “fake geek girls” thing. The “gamer” controversy is at its core a conflict between white cishet boys rabidly defending the industry’s status quo because it caters to them, and doing so by bitterly attacking those who enjoy the medium in different ways (indie game fans, hobbyist developers, people who analyse games as art and cultural products), with this latter group containing the largest representation of underprivileged groups who were shut out of the “mainstream”.

I mean, isn’t Zoe Quinn kind of the equivalent of a fanfic author getting recognition for her work? And aren’t the charges of her work not being “real games” incredibly familiar?

On all sides we see men angry that they are having to share cultural influence and dialogue space with others, and reacting in roughly the same way: by saying that everything outside their influence is not real, not authentic, not serious, not deserving. That fans of it aren’t real fans and creators of it not real creators, and any praise it receives is due to corruption, sexual favours, and political concerns.

And with video games they’re getting particularly violent and radical because it’s not working. The media, arbiters of traditional legitimacy, whether for profit or ethics are giving space to these Others. The power structure has betrayed them, they have been unjustly cast from power. They trusted these people to support their policy of dominance. And so they must be punished for their insolence and corruption. These are the “journalism ethics” they are talking about.
