I am a Wellington based actor and writer. This is where I will put my things when I make them.
Jack Buchanan’s “Flat Race” is a really, really, good parody of the election campaigns by various party leaders. Like, it’s really good, he just gets them all.
Shit on libertarians
Shit on Act
Temple Grandin Too//Andrew Jackson JihadThere’s something big and powerful and wise
And it’s begging us to end its worthless life
So let’s be Temple Grandin for the night
And find a friendly way to make it die.

Try that shit out, racists.
Just remember people if you’re buying rice crackers (specifically here in NZ) don’t buy those ones with the fucking racist caricatures and names!
the leaders debate is so embarassing though like are these grown ass men or are they 12yo boys in suits?
Anonymous said: The Economist magazine reviewed a book about how slavery built early America. They complained that "Almost all the blacks in his book are victims, almost all the whites villains. This is not history; it is advocacy." Thanks for busting my stereotype that smarmy pseudo-intellectual Brits practice more subtle forms of racism than redneck Klansmen.
I like how those stupid motherfuckers think that saying something “is advocacy” invalidates it. Hey dipshits, you’re supposed to advocate against fucking SLAVERY you fucking idiots.

you a bitch
It’s called copula deletion, or zero copula. Many languages and dialects, including Ancient Greek and Russian, delete the copula (the verb to be) when the context is obvious.
So an utterance like “you a bitch” in AAVE is not an example of a misused you, but an example of a sentence that deletes the copular verb (are), which is a perfectly valid thing to do in that dialect, just as deleting an /r/ after a vowel is a perfectly valid thing to do in an upper-class British dialect.
What’s more, it’s been shown that copula deletion occurs in AAVE exactly in those contexts where copula contraction occurs in so-called “Standard American English.” That is, the basic sentence “You are great” can become “You’re great” in SAE and “You great” in AAVE, but “I know who you are” cannot become “I know who you’re” in SAE, and according to reports, neither can you get “I know who you” in AAVE.
In other words, AAVE is a set of grammatical rules just as complex and systematic as SAE, and the widespread belief that it is not is nothing more than yet another manifestation of deeply internalized racism.
reblogging again for additional commentary
Slurs are not oppressive because they are offensive, they are oppressive because slurs by nature of being slurs draw upon certain power dynamics to remind their target of his/her/their vulnerability in a certain relation to power and as an extension of that, to threaten violence and exploitation of that vulnerability.
this is literally the most accurate definition in the world
