Yeah, real fucking “innocent” eh???

The violence in Baltimore saddens me. It is all so damn sad. It doesn’t help Freddie Gray. It doesn’t help the protesters. It doesn’t help the City of Baltimore. Martin Luther King, after studying Ghandi’s methods and teachings, decided that nonviolence was the way to make a statement and continue to keep the moral high ground. Today, the people of Baltimore, the poor people of Baltimore, the youth of Baltimore, have lost the moral high ground. They can talk about poverty. They can talk about police brutality. All America will see is pictures of burning cars and innocent store owners crying about their looted stores.

anonymous asked:

do you love him because he resembles your great antlered god?

           But he is not her god. 

He is not the Hunt, not the violence, to her he is not the blood nor the wound nor the splitting bones, nor the warmth of flesh clenched in hands and entrails torn between teeth. He is different. He is the calmness in the breath before the final blow, sometimes, and others he is the mud under her nails.

Most of the times, he is laughter masked in a smirk and a quirked eyebrow, and it makes her heart sing at the ease of it, the glory. Oh, he is holy and there is no denying that– but he is not the holiness of blood or rituals or laughter mad, as nails find skin and tear.

He is the holiness of beauty, of calmness, of warmth. The way his laughter falls is strong enough to take any storm raging in her chest, enough to kindle it and give it purpose. She is damnable, arrogant, violent. He is all that and more.

He laughs when he kills and he laughs when she kills, too: they are savage and they slaughter the far away Western Lords with every feverish bark and howl: they are careless, they are reckless, they were not born to be rulers. It is not in their blood. A crown does not sit easy on their heads, they tiptoe along the ridges and bony backs of mountains and drink the dew from each other’s dreams. They walk, together, and it is in the darkness that they find their purpose.

Her gods are not what he is: he is much too heavy, much too made of flesh to be a god, much too driven by the beating beneath his breast to be a god. He would not suit a godly throne: gods do not look upon a newborn babe with blue eyes and black hair with such love she thinks she has finally found her place, gods do not run a hand along a scarred cheek with such reverence and adoration she feels lighthearted, soiled, so utterly made of flesh and dirt and spit it is invigorating.

Gods do not let themselves be loved the way one loves the darkness, and the forest, and the night.

Gods do not wipe the pain away, gods do not laugh, gods do not tease.

Gods do not break hearts the way he did.

/Whispers in your ear/ iron by woodkid is the ultimate Stucky song fight me on this

OH BOY OH BOY

Deep in the ocean, dead and cast away
Where innocence is burned in flames
A million mile from home, I’m walking ahead
I’m frozen to the bones, I am…


A soldier on my own, I don’t know the way
I’m riding up the heights of shame
I’m waiting for the call, the hand on the chest

I’m ready for the fight and fate

OH BOY OH BOY OH BOY

*SPOILERS IF YOU HAVEN’T WATCHED IT*

jin: I didn’t really understand Jin’s part at first but it’s as though he is isolating himself, which is why he is in the room by himself. The petals burning could symbolise how his innocence is burning away? Him curling up on the bed crying could be showing how he is just laying, waiting for his life to end.

suga: Well, he had a lighter and in the tweet the official BTS account tweeted, he had gasoline. I take it that he is going to set the house on fire, and let himself burn in it.

j-hope: there wasn’t much j-hope to gather much from, but him looking in the mirror could show that he doesn’t think he is good enough for this girl. He then takes the pills out of the cupboard, so this obviously symbolises an overdose.

rap monster: sorry, but i have no idea what to say about him haha! maybe something about fire because he opened the gas bit of the car?

jimin: he was filling up the bath and burning a letter (?) so he obviously was upset with the person that sent him it. In the end, it looks like he drowned himself.

v: he looks as though he is drunk and is in quite a rough place. he barges into someones house and kills someone.

jungkook: he purposefully barges into some guys, which could show he wants attention even if its bad. later on, he gets hit by a car. potentially, it is those boys that he tried to pick a fight with?

anonymous asked:

you understand those rioter are burning down innocent businesses and looting them too, right? and lighting cars on fire that could cause an explosions that could hurt them and the police officers, PLUS innocent people minding their own business? that from all the windows being broken have sharp pieces of glass shattered all over the sidewalks just waiting for a little kid to trip on them? that school got canceled today for all student? get your fact hun, unfollow xoxo :-)

ah, Hateful and Extremely Uninformed Anon, we meet again.  I don’t know how many times it must be said that, while I value my followers, the decision to follow me is, by nature, a personal one that can be revoked at any time, so I could honestly not be less offended that you have done so or that you have felt the need to tell me.  On the occasion that I receive them, I don’t typically answer messages with such a tone, as I have no time anymore for people who cannot speak to me politely–I will discuss anything if it can be done in a respectful manner, and the way you have worded this is far from respectful.  However, on this subject, my desire to inform outweighs my desire not to dignify rudeness with a response.

For starters, the first rule of claims is that they should be backed up with fact.  I have not heard a single report of a little kid getting hurt by broken glass in Baltimore amidst everything happening, but if one such case exists, by all means refer me to it.  (Although, if a kid is hanging out around the outside of a building with the windows busted out from ongoing riots, I’d consider it more of a parental failure than a societal one.)  I am completely aware that school was canceled, and I can assure you that every kid who got to stay home is unbelievably thrilled.  It is probably a good thing that they did, too, considering the massive mess that we call the American public school system, but that is another issue.

It stands to reason that you should get your facts straight.  Both on the subject at hand, and on the actual posts of mine that you are referring to.  The only words I had on those who are looting and destroying businesses were to dissociate them from the movement and protests at large–many of them are simply taking advantage of the chaos for personal gain, as typically happens in situations like this.  Robberies happen in Baltimore every day, it does not make a cause any less legitimate because they occur during protests related to it.  I actually kinda implied that I did not agree with the parts of the riots that you mentioned, and closer attention to what I wrote renders the entire purpose of this message useless.

But the case happens to be that while some parts of the riots are regrettable, I am not going to do anything to stop them.  Do I think that setting cars on fire and throwing rocks at people are great things?  I don’t think anyone would say that they are.  But plucking these things out of context is dangerous.  Do I necessarily agree with all of the specific actions that the rioters are doing?  No. Do I agree with what they are feeling?  The answer is a resounding YES. Every emotion in the hearts of these protesters is legitimate, and these feelings justify their actions.  Look, I am the biggest peacenik pacifist you will ever come across.  I abhor violence of any kind.  But even I can see when something larger than quiet activism needs to be done.  Yes, there is beautiful peaceful protesting and teamwork going on right now in my city, all of which the media refuses to report.  Yes, those are needed and effective, and I applaud every person participating in them.  But the riots are needed too, and I will tell you why.

Black people are being killed, in large numbers.  They are being killed for nothing by the people who are supposedly there to serve and protect them.  They are being killed for walking down the street, for existing as black human beings.  They are desperate and angry and fed up, because society has proven to them that it will not listen unless they make themselves heard, loud and clear.  They are fighting back the way they have been fought against.  Riots are ugly, absolutely.  But as history has shown it, they are too often necessary.  When justice is not given when it is owed, and not given when it is asked for, and still not given when it is pleaded for, then those who deserve it will demand justice.  These riots are a demand. They are happening to send a message, and the message is loud and clear: Black lives matter.

Friendly Note From Someone 20 Minutes from Baltimore

This did not start because police decided to attack a bunch of innocent teenagers.

High schoolers began to riot, and the police responded to that and all of the looting and fires that followed. Many innocent people’s family businesses and homes are being attacked and burned down.

Innocent civilians are getting trashcans thrown at each other, as well as a community center and a church have been burned down.

Residents of Baltimore are upset with what is happening. Yes, the police have made A LOT of mistakes and killed innocent people, but this was not started by just them and this senseless rioting is just going to hurt and possibly kill even more innocent people.

Please, please stop spreading false information until you have the facts and everyone in Baltimore try to stay safe.

anonymous asked:

Having to ask as anon because actually afraid of abuse from SWW crowd. But I have seen a LOT of pro-Ward stuff on my dash from people I can't unfollow and I need a sanity reassurance please! Ward is a psycho, Simmons and May aren't, Skye was right to shoot him and there was no Skyeward signs there and his treatment of Kara is sick. Please, sane person, I need to see someone say it! Paragraphs of why Ward is amazing, I need counter reading to keep my mind intact.

Don’t worry! The people who keep on insisting that Ward is nothing but a poor misunderstood hero are wrong!

There are no two ways about it!

If you have a character who murders innocent people, burns his family alive, kidnaps the woman he lusts after and then threatens to rape her, kidnaps her again and drags her to a man who is going to dissect her, willingly joins a terrorist organization twice, etc this is an evil character!

Ward is a psychopath!
To say otherwise is to blatantly misunderstand everything that is happening and has ever happened on AoS and in the larger MCU!

Also, to say that Skye was in the wrong to shoot somebody who had just kidnapped her and was about to drag her off who-knows-where (especially considering that this somebody also threatened to rape her in the past), is completely ridiculous, and incredibly disgusting!

And yes to everything else! SkyeWard is not a thing! It never will be, and it never really was! Just because he is creepily obsessed with her doesn’t make them a thing!
And considering the fact that Ward is manipulating, raping, and continuing the abuse of a woman who was brainwashed and literally has no autonomy, to call that relationship anything but disgusting is just wrong!

anonymous asked:

Okay I'm all for these riots and all, but why are they burning down innocent people's cars and buildings?

1) language is very important. Protestors are not rioters and i’m going to need you all to stop calling them such. you wanna ask questions about people who are rioting, go ask them. i can only answer questions about the protestors. 

2) go ask the police department how they managed to severed someone’s spine before you start asking me any questions. 

mygearsarestartingtotremble replied to your post “I also wanted to say, I’m aware of the racial slurs and horrible…”

So what is the proper reaction?

The proper reaction? Dude, really? Do you think it’s reasonable for them to react the way that they have? Do you think it’s a proper reaction to burn down innocent people’s houses and attack people who have nothing to do with what’s going on? Do you think being called racial slurs is reason enough to destroy a city? There is no fucking reason you can give me whatsoever that they resorted to this and they’re currently pushing towards Brooklyn Park where my niece and nephew are so I could care less what they were called, I wouldn’t be putting innocent lives in danger because I was outraged over someone’s death and called racial slurs, I’d be trying to go about change the right way. There’s no reason for this, there’s no reason for innocents to be in danger. Do you really think that the way they reacted is okay? Maybe I’m assuming a little from the question you asked, but honestly, do you? Would you want to be injured and have your house burned down for a situation that has nothing to do with you?

I get it.. that is a farewell hug between Hayley and Elijah. Someone said that Elijah will go after his happiness towards the end of the seasons. Maybe he is finally going to sever that umbilical cord with Klaus. Of course this all will happen after the battle has been won. thoughts?

I think Klaus and Elijah def have a period of separation after this. I think the season ends with Klaus completely alone, not Rebekah, not Hope and Hayley, no Elijah, and no Cami  either since if she gets any consistency as a character she will be outraged and overcome with emotion that Klaus made an innocent Gia burn herself alive. He’ll end up exactly how he feared he would end up. 

I think Elijah is gonna go to Hayley in the bayou when she returns human and they might say goodbye or something before he leaves because by that point Dahlia will be gone so there is no reason for him to stay besides Klaus and he’s done staying at Klaus’s side. 

I’m probably going to get a lot of shit for this, but here I go

At school today, a lot of my friends were talking about Baltimore and the rioting happening there right now, so I thought I’d share my opinion.

I agree that there needs to be a change. This kind of reaction from the public is telling people that there is something wrong with the American police force. But violence is not the way to go about it.

A state of emergency was announced for the city. Little kids who depend on the free breakfast/lunch programs will go hungry because their schools are closed down due to the violence. People are using the riots as a reason to loot local businesses, and multiple buildings are being burned to the ground. Innocent families and people are being affected.

 My family up in Baltimore says the rioting hasn’t reached them yet, but if the violence keeps escalating that could all change. My aunt’s office, however, is 10 minutes away from where the riots are. They aren’t involved in the riots, but they could be sucked into its warpath anyway.

I’m not saying that people should back down from the fight; I’m saying that people need to find ways to protest that won’t put others in harm’s way. You want to know why Martin Luther King, Jr’s civil rights efforts were so effective? He used nonviolent methods. Nonviolent protests and boycotts to get the change that he and thousands of others wanted. Yes, protesters were still mistreated for quite a while, but they knew that if they used violent methods of protest then they would only exacerbate the problem.

There’s enough evil in the world as it is. Change is coming, but it shouldn’t be because of unnecessary violence for the news headlines. Do it smart and do it safe.

…and cue the messages saying this post is bullshit.

anonymous asked:

so that photo you posted is a man yelling in the face of a police officer, trying to protect the innocent people that are being effected by these violet acts. we (poc) already have a bad rep when it comes to handling ourselves in times like these. so what do we do? loot, hurt innocent people, burn buildings, etc. its people like those rioters that make the crackers think that black lives dont matter smfh

White Jesus I rebuke that coon shit this person just said.

I'm all about black lives matter.

But I don’t understand how breaking laws and looting and destroying business that had nothing to do with whatever civil injustice happened is proving a point. I don’t mean this to say that rioting is wrong, I just think that peaceful protests make a much stronger point.
Because with all the violence happening, doesn’t that just bring you down to the same level of those who did the injustice?
By destroying innocent businesses? Burning down innocent people’s homes? How does that solve any problem? To me that’s just creating a bigger problem.

Maybe there is a point that I am missing, and I want to understand so that I am not ignorant. I do not wish to be ignorant, so anyone who would like to kindly explain this to me, I will be so grateful. Because right now I just cannot find myself supporting the people destroying this city to prove a point about justice and how black lives matter.

Again, maybe I am missing something. I also am sincere when I say that I do NOT wish to be ignorant. This is me asking for education about the subject. Not me saying that I am right or that anyone in Baltimore is wrong. Simply that I do not understand.

Idk maybe people shouldn’t be rioting & burning down innocent people’s businesses that they’ve probably worked they’re whole life to build but what do I know I’m just a whitey
