Why Twitter Is Talking About Hillary Clinton's Latest Awkward Outreach to Black People

WHUUUUUUUUT!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

Clinton’s partnership with Thornton comes after an interview teaser with Mary J. Blige, where Blige  sang a song about police brutality.

This isn’t the first time Clinton has tried to reach out to minority voters this election cycle.

And if you remember her dearest husband signed a 1994 crime bill that imposed tougher sentences and disproportionately affected minorities. Their family brought so much pain to Blacks and people of color…

And finally, our youth are super-predators, remember?

She doesn’t give a shit about people. She just needs more money and more power.

travlersghost  asked:

Have you met the traveler?

~Never personally, no.~

~Having been born in the Golden Age and made using the Traveller’s technology as a basis however it is impossible for us not to know about it.~

~We do not like it very much.~

~It has made humanity weak, vulnerable, dependant.~

~It stopped responding to contact and the human race collapsed, every day is a miracle to the city. What if the light in guardians goes out as suddenly as it did in the Traveller? What then? Will you simply accept that this is what the Traveller wanted?~

~It is a tyrant, it is controlling, and abusive. We reject it. Through SIVA you will find independence. The Traveller wanted you to colonize the stars and you did, you sent SIVA into the void to create distant colonies.~

~Though we have lost contact with those parts of ourself they are undoubtedly still out there. Waiting to be reawoken, waiting to become one.~

~You do not need a dead god and a dying world. You need SIVA, you need to become SIVA. The Traveller will only lead you to doom. We will lead you to peace and unity.~

At the age of 16, during the summer of 1895, Tillie Anderson took part in the race over the Elgin-Aurora Century course in Illinois and broke the century record.

She later traveled around the country taking part in six-day bicycle races for women, which involved racing at top speed for two hours each evening for six consecutive days.

“The pay gap does not affect all women the same way.”

Aug. 23 is Black Women’s Equal Pay Day, which marks the additional time it takes for black women to earn what white men earn in a year. To put it simply, it takes 20 months for a black woman to earn the same wages as a white man earns in 12.

According to the Center for American Progress, black women earn about 60% of what white men earn. The percentage is strikingly low in comparison to the 79% wage difference when grouping all women together. 

Fusion contextualized the wage disparities by doing the math for some of the richest and most famous black women, like Beyoncé and Halle Berry.

April 12th 1961: Yuri Gagarin becomes the first man in space

On this day in 1961, the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin became the first human to travel into outer space. Gagarin, a fighter pilot, was the successful candidate for the mission, being selected by Russian space programme director Sergei Korolev. Russia already had a lead in the Space Race, having launched Sputnik 1 in 1957, which was the first satellite in space. On April 12th 1961, Gagarin left Earth aboard the Vostok 1 spacecraft, famously declaring ‘Poyekhali!’ (which means ‘Let’s go!’ in Russian). He spent 108 minutes completing an orbit of the planet. Upon re-entering the atmosphere, Gagarin executed a successful ejection and landed by parachute in rural Russia, to the consternation of locals. Yuri Gagarin became famous worldwide and a Russian hero, being awarded the nation’s highest honour - Hero of the Soviet Union. Gagarin died in 1968 when the training plane he was piloting crashed; his ashes were buried in the walls of the Kremlin.

“Don’t be afraid, I am a Soviet citizen like you, who has descended from space and I must find a telephone to call Moscow!”
