A tiger walks into a liquor store…there’s no punchline here.

Is that… a frisbee?

He just wants to play catch

What I love is that it obviously takes the person at the counter a few seconds to process that that is in fact a tiger.
Like, you kinda see their brain going “dog, nope, cat, big cat, big cat with stripes, SHIT, tiger!!!”

And the two people who go dashing out with the distinctive “I have just encountered an unexpected tiger SHITSHITSHITSHITSHIT” run.

I like that the second guy leaves the chips or whatever those are. Like, he’s running and falling because TIGER but he will not accidentally shoplift

Taking naked pictures of yourself does not make you a bad person. People who share them without your permission are bad people.

next time you hear a white person say “well if black people can say the n-word why can’t i???” you should ask them “why do you want to?” and listen as they try not to say “black people have something of their own that I am not entitled to and that hurts my feelings and makes me feel inferior”

So hey. Conjura.

You’ve probably heard of the Superdictionary as the whole “40 Cakes” thing, right? Right? Of course you have. Well, they also made a couple original characters for their book including such favorites as Ted & Terri Trapper Metropolis’ Finest…

Ya’ll remember that Jennie Mancuso Guthier woman? Well black tumblr is too real (via Facebook post about Ferguson leads to firing)


"It shouldn’t be tolerated when you’re a professional," said the man. "A hospital is a place where you’re supposed to have compassion upon people of all races."

It shouldn’t be tolerated any where!

daivialesley said: When people are defending Disney, they'll do backflips to prove that Mulan and Pocahontas are on the Disney Princess Official Team. but then when other people ask "So.... where's the merchandise?" suddenly it's "Well, they aren't REAL princesses!!!!!!!"

feministdisney:

yeah… I mean, I don’t exactly blame people for coming to conclusions I don’t agree with because it’s sort of the first step to examining media, is thinking about the “why”

so I get it, I get why, for example, people reblogged the coloring book post being like “who gives a shit/ they’re just shown more because they’re the most popular princesses/ the other princesses aren’t ‘classic’.”

Like in the grand scheme of things: I agree, a coloring book isn’t a big deal. The reality is, though, that it’s a micro-aggression, and a super easy one to document and quantify at that. People will act like real evidence isn’t a big deal on the one hand, then they’ll look at big, big things, events, and deny that race is in any way still an issue in the U.S. And of course if you’ve ignored the thousand little things then yeah, it might just seem like “people arguing” rather than “sanctioned racial oppression” etc.

And the thing with the “most popular princesses” is, again, something that requires a deeper look. While I agree that Disney is usually simply looking out for what will make the most money, race isn’t somehow… removed from this equation. Like: who you think will be popular influences how you produce the merchandise (who is featured most prominently) which, in turn, influences actual, real popularity. 

A lot of people commenting on marketing just assume it’s some organic force when that’s like the inherent opposite of marketing, to an extent. In marketing you get to define who becomes the “classic princess” when the entire princess line isn’t that old itself, it’s a manufactured thing. Which is why it’s not just some random thing that Mulan gets constantly ignored in spite of the lasting popularity of the movie and character. But it requires looking a little deeper than “oh well they’re just printing more of the popular characters duh!” anyway I worded this all pretty badly because it’s late
