Jim Crow segregation meant that African American travelers couldn’t count on the typical parts of a road trip: filling the tank at a gas station, grabbing a bite at a restaurant, or staying the night in a motel. This book mapped out a safe route of accommodations, and came out every year from 1937 through 1964.

Its 1948 edition contained this quote from publishers Victor and Alma Green:

“There will be a day sometime in the near future when this guide will not have to be published. That is when we as a race will have equal opportunities and privileges in the United States. It will be a great day for us to suspend this publication for then we can go wherever we please, and without embarrassment.”

[about the final scene in Ant-Man] I think [what Bucky was caught in was] more of a vise. But it would never happen at his own hand, by his own doing. (…) I’ve seen some of the ideas people have about it and I would just say that whatever you’re seeing on the surface, it’s not as obvious as that. There might be a whole lot more to the scene. I would say someone would probably want to put him in a vise. (x)

Evoca1

Celebrating its fourth year, the Richmond Mural Project recently brought a new crop of international artists to Virginia. The project has a goal to create 100 murals in five years, making this year especially ambitious with many artists creating multiple pieces. We’ve covered previous installments here on the blog, where the project has featured murals by Chazme 718, Meggs, Onur, Ron English, Sepe, Smitheone, Ekundayo, Proch, David Flores and Wes21. On July 14th, they were joined by Caratoes, Clog two, D*Face, Evoca1, Inkten, James Bullough, Jason Woodside, Jerkface, Moya, Nils Westergard, and Taylor White.

Super Human Registration Act says you have to give up your secret identity

Tony:

Kinda already told everyone.

Thor:

My only name is Thor.

Natasha:

I sorta dumped Barton’s and my identities on the internet.

Clint:

Thanks Nat. Really. I’m just glad no one knows of the farm.

Bruce:

I transformed in the middle of the street. Young hackers probably got security videos and know who I am.

Steve:

I had no mask the last half of the Battle of New York, the information dump Nat did probably had my identity put on the internet too, also the President himself welcomed me back. It’s not like I was trying to hide it.

Rhodey:

I brag about being War Machine all the time.

Wanda:

The only name I have been referred to is Wanda.

Vision:

I have no identity.

Sam & Scott:

Looks like it’s just you and me little man.

Little Man is worse than Ant Man. Can we please keep it at the first dumb name.

AKA Why MCU Civil War is stupid.

war is peace.

the Korean War became a proxy war in the larger Cold War involving the US, USSR and then newly-Communist China. although the Cold War remained ‘cold’ in the sense that a feared nuclear confrontation didn’t materialise, it was a no less destructive conflict for those caught in the way.

Playin’ with a Spidey MCU concept.
Wanted his standalone suit to look passable as his final design, but still notably on a highschooler’s budget.


Then once he proves himself with the big players, Tony Stark is like ‘Hey kid- you got the moves, but your suit needs some tweaking.’ Gets him fitted with a sleeker look for legit Avenger time.


Also, reverse-side spider is now a backpack. I miss the fat spider.

Murder of Anthony Walker

Anthony Walker was eighteen years old when he was brutally murdered by two racist thugs, Michael Barton and his cousin Paul Taylor, in Merseyside, UK. Anthony was a promising student who was a talented actor, sportsman, and public speaker. He spoke out against prejudice and wanted to make a difference. He was about to complete his A-Levels when he became the victim of an unprovoked racially motivated attack. His two murderers were known racists, who had previously been convicted for carving a Swastika into the door of a local pub. Racist graffiti wasn’t enough for them, so they bought an ice axe (pictured above) and decided to kill someone. 

On the night of 30th July 2005, the cousins spotted Anthony waiting at a bus stop and chased him into the local park. After degrading him with racial slurs, they hit his head repeatedly with the axe until he fell over. Anthony died slowly from dramatic blood loss. Police arrested Barton and Taylor after a week-long manhunt, at Liverpool Airport. They had been trying to flee to the Netherlands, when staff recognised them. Taylor got a minimum sentence of 23 years and eight months, and Barton got 17 years and eight months, but many believe this is nowhere near justice.

The Anthony Walker Foundation was set up in memory, to help victims of hate crime. The aims and objectives of the charity are to promote racial harmony through education, sport and the arts, promoting the celebration of diversity and personal integrity and the realisation of potential of all young people.

The year is 2017. Kevin Feige has said multiple times that the upcoming Spider-Man movie will not be an origin story. Ant-Man establishes Spider-Man as existing and active as a superhero in the MCU. Captain America: Civil War will have featured Spider-Man as an active superhero. And there will still be somebody on the internet going “UUUUUUGGGGHH I can’t believe I have to sit through ANOTHER fucking Spider-Man origin movie”

So basically near the end of ac 3 Minerva said that if the assassins and templars would stop fighting , the world might be be save earlier.

If connor succedded on bringing his father to work together and END the the templar-assassin war, the french reveloution might not happend ( even if it did happend, it’s may not as disastrous as the real reveloution ) and Desmond would (probably) still be alive

Archaeological Museum of Seteia:

Composite statuette of male figure made of hippopotamus’ ivory, serpentine head (coiffure), gold attached for clothing, eyes made of rock crystal. Internal dowels of wood. The base was probably made of wood painted with Egyptian blue and scattered gold spangles.     

This is the famous kouros of Seteia, a unique in its preservation Minoan ivory figurine. A very important sculptural element are the raised veins on the feet and hands of the figure. This feature can be observed in other representations of male figures, it really gives a sense of tension. Rock crystal applied on eyes to give them a “realistic” glossiness can also be seen on the famous bull-head rhyton from Knossos. More commentary to follow. Again the Seteia museum is long overdue for a renovation and so many tags are not very informative.

Married at 10:00am. At risk of being fired at 2:00pm. The chance of eviction at 4:00pm. For lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transgender (LGBT) Americans that live in one of the 31 states lacking LGBT non-discrimination protections, this could be a harsh reality.

Currently, millions of Americans are subjected to uncertainty and potential discrimination that impacts their safety, their family and their way of life — for no other reason beyond their sexual orientation or gender identity.  

HRC is leading the fight to pass the Equality Act, a comprehensive federal LGBT non-discrimination bill introduced in Congress. The Equality Act would provide explicit, permanent protections for LGBT people in many of the most important aspects of their lives
