- First - they said that Darren Wilson was apprehending Mike Brown for a stolen candy bar
- Second - they said that Darren Wilson was apprehending Mike Brown for a stolen pack of cigars. (Store owner and their lawyer confirmed he didn’t)
- Third - They said that Darren Wilson was apprehending Mike Brown because he matched the description of a person that had committed a robbery. (It was confirmed by some Twitter sleuths that he looked nothing like the person and the robbery occurred an entire county away)
- Fourth - They’re NOW saying that Mike Brown was resisting arrest by brutally beating Darren Wilson and the 10+ shots were made in self defense

This better have hundreds of thousands of notes at the end of the day or else
But I am outraged. And if you aren’t outraged, then you aren’t paying attention. This is America in 2014. This is our reality. It’s so easy to get jaded and to ignore these atrocities, to act like this doesn’t affect us. It’s so easy to get apathetic. In the past it was the youth who protested. Where is the rage of the youth? Where is our rage?
Like I said, I am not Mike Brown. But I am outraged. ❞

in hindsight i shouldnt have poured boxed wine and vodka into my can of 4loko last night but on the other hand this body is merely a flesh vessel for my stardust to experience other stardust

ANNIE - Official Trailer (2014)
I’m not gonna lie, I teared up a little bit when I saw the trailer.
I’m sooo excited for this… cheese fest and all!
this is so freaking adorable and yes i cried. I can’t wait.
I CAN’T WAIT
So I’ll probably get slammed for this (because, tumblr) but here goes anyway. Ask box is open, slam away.
When the original Little Orphan Annie was written, chronologically we were a lot closer to a time where there was a strong bias against Irish people. By making Annie red haired, it was implied that she was of Irish descent, and by extension, the audience would have inherently known that was part of the bias against her.
Changing Annie’s race to African American replicates this same dynamic in modern society, and that’s a big part of why so many people were upset by it. A BLACK orphan?! Nooooooo, keep her white and red haired and cute I DON’T WANT TO DEAL WITH HOW THIS IS MAKING ME UNCOMFORTABLE.
Casting Annie as black in 2014 is a much more true to the original character than casting her as a caucasian red head.
i cried. ngl.
this man was speaking so much truth, i really wish someone would interview him
