"The is a lion in my living room. I feed it raw meat
so it does not hurt me. It is a strange thing
to nourish what could kill you
in the hopes it does not kill you.
We have lived like this, it and I, for so many years.
Sometimes it feels like we have always lived like this.
Sometimes I think I have always been like this."

I love every aspect of this.

NO you guys don’t understand, the entire book is like this. They tried to cram in all sorts of representation of different races and the art is gorgeous and it’s GREAT! The picture for a spellcaster is a female human who is wearing BAGGY, NON-SEXUALIZED CLOTHING AND NO MAKEUP because she’s in a dungeon, she doesn’t have time to do her hair cmon.

Also this:

You know, this makes D&D more accessible to me. I tried to play. I tried to play with a bunch of white dudes and I just couldn’t. I just couldn’t handle all the male fuckery

OMG ALL THE ABOVE COMMENTARY MAKES ME SO HAPPY

!!!!!!!!

It’s fun, too.

Guys it’s really important during this whole ferguson protest that we as social media DO NOT back down until punishment is dealt to those racists. If we let this movement die, then the oppressors win. I’ve seen stuff like this before and the majority of people stop posting about it within a week. We can’t let that happen, this is too important. so keep reblogging and keep posting until these darn racists are punished for their awful inhumane actions.

Here is a side by side comparison of how The New York Times has profiled Michael Brown — an 18 year old black boy gunned down by police — and how they profiled Ted Bundy, one of the most prolific serial killers of all time.

Three Police Guns and a Baby, By Cindy Gomez-Schempp

On July 25, 2014, 13 Fargo, ND police officers were dispatched to arrest one 15 year old girl. She claimed Fargo police used excessive force. Officers said they smelled marijuana. She reportedly told officers she was retrieving her sister’s phone and charger from the car but was still dragged her from the car, had her head beat on the hood of a car, and was handcuffed and hogtied causing excruciating pain to her arms, wrists and ankles. (See original story here)

A week and a half later, the 15 year old’s mom went to the police department with her lawyer to request a complaint form from the Fargo Police concerning the brutal arrest of her innocent 15 year old daughter. The day after she met with the Fargo Police Department’s Office of Professional Standards, her car was pulled over by an unmarked police vehicle. She was ready to record because she had been reporting repeated harassment from police toward her family members, especially those who witnessed and reported on her daughter’s arrest.

3 Police Guns and a Baby While giving her friend a ride, she was boxed in and detained by a hoard of police cars during a traffic stop on the vehicle ahead of her (which her passenger’s daughter and boyfriend were traveling in). During the stop officers drew their guns at unarmed occupants including a three year old toddler. A recent Nation article cited what every U.S. Marine knows: That you never point a weapon at anything you do not intend to shoot. Neither the Ferguson nor the Fargo police have been advised of this important distinction.

The disturbing encounter for this embattled Fargo mother, included three guns pulled on the scene against unarmed travelers; one of them a three year old child. The person they arrested did not resist arrest, made his hands visible, and did not pose any visible threat to officers. The mother of the 15 year old recently reporting excessive force claims that she is now being subjected to constant surveillance and harassment as a result of exposing police misconduct to media. The unmarked police vehicle that detained both cars had been sitting outside her home “all day”, and she suspected it as a surveillance vehicle once she left the mobile home park where she lives and noticed it was following her.

William Bratton: Investigate Ryo Oyamada's Death

Ryo Oyamada, a 24 year old student from Japan, was struck and killed by an NYPD vehicle in a hit & run.  Witnesses say the police car had no lights or sirens on and was going over 70 mph.  The released footage by NYPD was proven to be heavily altered in a cover-up, showing “lights” on the vehicle, when compared to footage from the NY Housing Authority on the same street with the same timestamp. 

On a personal note: I know that this will probably not be shared or reblogged very much, because Asians are not very prominent in American culture.  I understand this, because Asians (like me) are partially at fault for being so passive.  But I am begging you to please consider signing this petition out of human decency.  Ryo was just a student walking home, then struck by a nearly silent police cruiser going at excess speed, and the NYPD covered it up. 

Here is the side-by-side comparison of the released video footage, including updates from the case.  *Edit*  This article contains a link to a graphic video moments after the crash, showing the body of Ryo Oyamada and NY citizens yelling at the police.  Please advise, it is highly disturbing. 

And the following is an excerpt from the petition, which as of now only has 286 signatures.

BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOST
