When people compare the greatness that is The Simpsons to other animated shows like Family Guy it makes me want to set myself on fire

Laverne: Nicole, does your belief system now change, in which you now know you don’t need him to be there? 
Nicole: No. I think what happens is it turns into less a conversation about my blackness and more about relating to humanity, because that’s really what we’re trying to do. We’re just realizing that people are capable of doing it. We’re underestimating people because people said we weren’t viable.

SIGNAL BOOST FOR NORTHERN CALIFORNIA, PARTICULARLY CENTRAL VALLEY/SACRAMENTO REGION

A mother’s plea in Sacramento:

Warning to Parents of Teenage Daughters in Natomas Park: 

It is with disgust, heartbreak, and a need to protect all of the children in our community that I share this devastating news with you. 

Kevin David Basham, the nearly 26 year old man pictured below, is a cashier at the Raley’s Supermarket (store #4650) on Natomas Blvd. For several weeks earlier this year beginning in February, Basham flirted unabashedly with my child while we would shop for groceries. Although I made it clear to him that my child is only 15 years old, he pursued her vigorously. Lying about his true age, he convinced her to give him her phone number and initiated communication; Basham began texting inappropriate messages and pictures to her immediately and regularly. She reminded him that she was 15, yet he continued messaging her relentlessly. He stalked her at a restaurant. He has been on and inside the Inderkum High School campus to watch her rehearse for talent shows. He was even caught sneaking into my backyard where I met him with a flashlight to the face and instructed him to leave my child alone - at which point he threatened me with these exact words, “You can’t keep me from seeing her.” 

Raley’s and the Sacramento Police Department were made aware of his increasing sexual advances towards a minor child, ten years his junior, on March 30th. The police department informed me to call the emergency line if he ever showed up again. Raley’s ignored my multiple complaints. To this very day, Raley’s corporate office has failed to return a single phone call to me. 

Between March 30th and April 17th, Basham further manipulated my child into being his “special friend” and sexually assaulted her multiple times, taking her virginity and sending her into a downward spiral; she was diagnosed with having post traumatic stress disorder following the assaults by Basham. 

With evidence that I provided, and a confession from Basham himself, he was arrested by the Sacramento Police Department (XREF 4748043), booked into jail, and is being charged by the District Attorney with two counts of felony rape. The DA feels strongly there is enough evidence to have twelve jurors convict him unanimously. Basham posted bail a few hours after his arrest and remains free, as he is due his due process in the court of law. His case has been continued five times since his first court appearance in May, with the next hearing (to determine if he will accept the plea deal offered to him by the DA or set a trial date -yet again- ) scheduled for September 30. Basham continues to work for Raley’s as a lead cashier. He works in close proximity with young female customers from several nearby schools, including: Natomas Park Elementary, Natomas Charter, Natomas Middle, Inderkum High, Heron, and Natomas Middle. Additionally, he lives in an apartment near NP3 Charter Middle and High. 

I have remained incredibly quiet on this front since discovering that he sexually assaulted my child in mid-April, per the DA’s request so as to not compromise the case. I have even been asked by the DA to not shop at my local grocery store because it makes the perpetrator “uncomfortable.” Today, however, I feel compelled to share this heartbreaking news with each of you in an effort to protect your child from this predator. With school back in session, and knowing that many of our teenage daughters stop by Raley’s on Natomas Blvd. before and after school for snacks, it is important that they be aware of this dangerous person. 

Name: Kevin David Basham
DOB: 10/24/1988
Race: White
Height: approx. 6’2”
Weight: approx. 190lbs.
Hair: Brown 
Eyes: Brown

It is far too late for me to protect my child, even though I did everything I could to prevent this tragedy from happening as it unfolded before me. If you shop at Raley’s on Natomas Blvd., please keep your teenage daughters near you at all times. Please protect your children from this predator. He is cunning, malicious, and a threat to our community.

PLEASE NOTE: Despite Basham’s confession to this crime, he is “innocent” until proven guilty. This message is intended to be informational only and not a character attack; hence the message containing only verifiable facts and not my personal opinions of this individual.

We’ve blacked out the mother’s name so as to protect the victim and her family, we’ve also bolded the mother’s intentions.

Good riddance, ya fucking bigoted old hag.

Every single Marvel Studios movie has centered around a presumably straight, white, male protagonist, even if white women (mostly love interests) and men of color (support roles) have played roles in the film. The franchise is a box office juggernaut and has a ton of movies on this list, but we’ve gotten two to three movies about each of the men on the Avengers and there’s yet to be a film about Black Widow.

Both of Marvel’s ensemble films—The Avengers and Guardians of the Galaxy—trimmed down the superhero teams for their film adaptations, and the women characters, save for one, were the first to be cut. Most moviegoers will never know that women of color and LGBTQ characters were cut from Guardians of the Galaxy, but audiences will get to relate to the talking raccoon and the talking tree.

I feel like those of y’all who aren’t super fat people get body positive and fat positive confused all the GD time. There’s a difference. Most of the body positive crowd isn’t waving their flag for the 350+lb plus people but we have to walk on eggshells for all of you in every single conversation.

This makes me sad to hear, but it’s absolutely true.

Breaking news: White fuckboys on twitter bitching how funny it is that Beyoncé is a feminist when she and her dancers were provocative and half naked. Despite feminism being about empowerment and a woman’s right to do whatever the hell she pleases with it, they just don’t seem to be able to grasp this concept.

In other news, men still don’t know what feminism is, still bitter that they aren’t Beyoncé and still making themselves look like asses on the internet.

And now the weather.

I bet 5 minutes later they slid up in some DM’s asking for nudes

you know these assholes had NO PROBLEM with anything in her show until that word popped up

it’s not nudity they have a problem with

it’s a woman who is empowered and in control of how when and why she dresses and dances how she wants

when their precious male gaze is questioned or dismissed, suddenly she’s a terrible feminist, and they try and shame her for the very thing that was turning them on seconds before

Not to mention Rob Ford still being allowed to hold office after admitting to a crack addiction and alcoholism, tackling a representative, etc.

(via browngirlblues)

Charlie Sheen smokes crack live in a web-chat and they make him the highest paid actor on television.

An 18-year-old black person smokes a blunt and he is unfit to live.

I see you white power.
