Gold and black. GOLD AND BLACK.
I’m going to see FKA twigs tonight so I thought I’d do my first #slowjam. I’m not going to lie to you, I’ve been walking around wearing this and thinking the entire time, “I look so good tonight! Goddamn godDAMN.” And that’s what a good outfit does. It makes you feel like you are the baddest bitch around. And if you feel like you are, then you walk like you are and you talk like you are and therefore you are!
People might say fashion doesn’t matter, what matters is how you look on the inside, and yeah, okay, that’s nice, but looking hot as hell never hurts. And “looking hot as hell” is subjective, angels. You do you and don’t give a fuck if other people think you don’t look as hot as you feel; they don’t have to get it and they don’t have to agree with you to have it remain a truth. Just remember this works both ways: if someone’s fashion includes long, tousled hair and A&F, respect that and see that hotness too. Let people own their chosen aesthetic and encourage their confidence shown while rocking it.

* Only about 1 percent of African Americans — and no more than 2 percent of black males — will commit a violent crime in a given year;
* Even though there are more black-on-white interracial crimes than white-on-black interracial crimes, this fact is not evidence of anti-white racial targeting by black offenders. Rather, it is completely explained by two factors having nothing to do with anti-white bias: namely, the general differences in rates of criminal offending, and the rates at which whites and blacks encounter one another (and thus, have the opportunity to victimize one another). Once these two factors are “controlled for” in social science terms, the actual rates of black-on-white crime are lower than random chance would predict;
* No more than 0.7 percent (seven-tenths of one percent) of African Americans will commit a violent crime against a white person in a given year, and fewer than 0.3 (three-tenths of one percent) of whites will be victimized by a black person in a given year;
* Whites are 6 times as likely to be murdered by another white person as by a black person; and overall, the percentage of white Americans who will be murdered by a black offender in a given year is only 2/10,000ths of 1 percent (0.0002). This means that only 1 in every 500,000 white people will be murdered by a black person in a given year. Although the numbers of black-on-white homicides are higher than the reverse (447 to 218 in 2010), the 218 black victims of white murderers is actually a higher percentage of the black population interracially killed than the 447 white victims of black murderers as a percentage of the white population. In fact, any given black person is 2.75 times as likely to be murdered by a white person as any given white person is to be murdered by an African American.

THIS IS AMAZING
Patreon is empowering a new generation of creators. Support and engage with artists and creators as they live out their passions!
I started an account over at Patreon - which is a website where you can help support your favourite artist and enable them to keep creating.
With your help I hope to bring my photography to the next level this coming year and create in ways that I’ve never be able to previously. My profile details my goals and projects as well as breaks down all the benefits that my patreons receive for supporting me in my creative endeavours.
You get patreon only images, access to full sets of photos that I don’t post publicly, a quartly zine, prints of my work and even google hangouts or Skype sessions with yours truly.
Even if you don’t chose to become a Patreon I really do hope you check out this site there are some amazing individuals there showcasing fantastic work.
When spoken word artist Brenna Twohy tells you that she is an unabashed devotee of all things “Potterotica” — erotic fiction based in the magical universe of Harry Potter — your response probably shouldn’t be that her taste is “unrealistic.”
I’m happy to be getting to the point where I don’t have to feel weird about enjoying fanfiction, or having written a bunch of it. Partly it’s that the fandom experience has become more broadly shared. Partly it’s that I stopped giving a shit.
And as for why I like the porny sort of fanfiction, see above. She says it better.
I like sex with context. I like sex when it involves fully fleshed out characters. I like the backstories. I like feeling like these people do other things when they aren’t having sex.
i was going to make a joke, like, “god, who would let that gangly monstrosity of a sexy teen (plus a year) jesus hold their child, have they ever even seen him try to walk, this is so dangerous, look how he teeters on those shoes as he shimmies and shakes with joyous, unwieldy abandon, beautiful but beyond control,” except i couldn’t even get through thinking it, let alone typing it, because the truth is that the world would probably be a better place if we gave harry styles every baby. give him every baby and let him nurture their spirits and wrap their heads in luxury scarves. let him teach them the importance of keeping your potassium levels up. let every small boychild in the land be raised beneath the warmth of a one harry styles so that they too may grow to be a good-hearted fawn who loves everyone and everything so completely, so selflessly, with such prescient understanding as to what kind of love it is they need, and without question, that he must grow his hair out long and luscious just to contain such boundless radiance, just to try.
Trying to look mean when I walk down the street so that creeps know exactly who not to fuck with.

The sense of entitled, sadistic, “moral disengagement” by the police is truly disheartening. How can they build trust in a community they are using for their role-playing FPS fantasies?(via liberalsarecool)
