Hello! Happy new year! Oh, also, here’s this new animation I made.

Ok, seeyah :3

“It’s a nod to Trayvon, no question, Trayvon Martin and people like him. People like Jordan Davis, a kid who was shot because of the perception that he was a danger. When you’re a black man in a hoodie, all of a sudden you’re a criminal. That’s something we shouldn’t have to deal with, but we do. It’s a double standard. We can’t cover our head when it’s cold and raining because God forbid someone sees us and puts our life in danger. We wanted to pay homage to that—it’s not something we were shying away from.” ~ Colter

Luke Cage was filmed in 2014, at the same time Eric Garner was killed, and Colter spoke about the lack of justice that was served.

“When we were filming this, there were different things going on, Eric Garner, the policemen were acquitted. No one was brought to justice. There was no handing out of any sentence. There are a couple of other things that happened during the time we were filming. We were watching the news, and it was always someone being shot who was unarmed, and there is no justification for it. It’s mind-boggling.”

Holy shit Netflix originals. Jessica Jones approaches mental illness and rape culture. Luke cage going for black lives matter. This is awesome.

What kind of world do we live in where people get arrested for being kind???

It doesn’t surprise me. Why would the Government want to feed the people…..It not like its there job to get people homes jobs food. They are too busy helping themselves…..shocking ( sarcasm )

And the only reason they were arrested is because Tampa officials didn’t want a congregation of homeless around for the weekend of the “big game” (the college national championship).
