But think about Dean driving through Tulsa late one night and Sam is asleep so he feels safe enough to flip to a country station and he’s quietly singing about where the green grass grows and supper from a sack (99 cent heart attack) and while he’s warbling on about pointing his rockin’ chair towards the west he’s thinking about who he’d like to be in that other rocking chair and he goes from singing about green grass to thinking about blue eyes but uh oh Sam wasn’t asleep and he filmed the whole thing on his phone and keeps threatening to tell the world about Dean’s low key country music appreciation.

Cas is utterly baffled when Dean takes him to buy two white rocking chairs.

  • Hiyori: You're impossibly fast, and strong. Your skin is pale white and ice cold. Your eyes are bright blue, and sometimes you speak like--like you're from a different time. You don't need to eat or drink, or even use the bathroom.. You wear long sleeves and pants, even during the summer..... How old are you?
  • Yato: ... 22.
  • Hiyori: How long have you been 22?
  • Yato: A while.
  • Hiyori: I know what you are.
  • Yato: Say it. Out loud. Say it!
  • Hiyori: A vampire.
  • Yato: Yes I am a god- wait what?

The fans have been overwhelmingly supportive when Kent and Alexei go public with their relationship, but when Alexei starts seeing “patater” being added to hashtags of various retweets, it’s Kent who explains to him the cultural phenomena of creating a portmanteau to describe a couple in a relationship.

This leads to Alexei asking what “shipping” is because he’s confused by that too, and the best explanation that Kent comes up with is, “when you think they would be really great together.”

Cue Alexei saying “shipping” when he thinks something would pair well together.

“This wine goes well with salmon. I ship it.”

“White and blue. Such good colours together. I ship it.”

“Eric. He’s so good cook with the oven. I ship it.”

Kent cringing and face palming every time Alexei uses it wrong.

“No, Tater. That’s not how you use that word.”

The only time Alexei gets it right is when he snaps a selfie of himself and Kent. He posts it on social media and writes in the captions:

which of the OUAT characters should you fight?

emma: fight her and basically you get a punch in the face. but now that she’s the dark one, you’ll get something much darker than that, probably a darker black eye. hahah ok sorry, too soon. just stay away, dark!emma coming at ya.

belle: maybe you’ll win but you’ll feel bad about it.

rumplestiltskin: now that he’s not the dark one anymore, you gotta line up just to get a chance to fight him. lots of people wanna beat his ass and take revenge now that he’s powerless. aw. watch out for that cane, tho.

snow white: i understand. snow white is very… uh, fightable. she screws up a lot so u kinda always have a reason to fight her. didn’t say you’ll win though, she has a newborn baby so rn, she is ball full of irritated, angry, sleep-deprived energy. so just a warning: fight her and you could be the person she takes it all out on. yikes.

hook/killian: tbh he’s the guy everybody wants to fight. its got sth to do with the devlishly handsome face i guess. it’d be fun to fight him actually but pro tip: only four things happen to those who fight killian - 1) he outwits you 2) he outhandsomes you 3) he outlives you (survivor af) …or 4) you manage to hurt him but u get a punch from emma

charming: you may win if swords don’t come into play. but never underestimate the nicey-nice face. he may… ahem… stab you in the back. heh heh. alright, sorry i know, also too soon.

regina: are you a worthy opponent? i guess i’ll just say try? she might acknowledge your existence out of boredom… probably.

robin hood: he seems like a big softie but idk cause no one knows yet what he’s capable of so yea go fight him so we find out.

  • me yesterday: i don't even like mcr that much anymore tbh
  • me today: Hi my name is Ebony Dark’ness Dementia Raven Way and I have long ebony black hair (that’s how I got my name) with purple streaks and red tips that reaches my mid-back and icy blue eyes like limpid tears and a lot of people tell me I look like Amy Lee (AN: if u don’t know who she is get da hell out of here!). I’m not related to Gerard Way but I wish I was because he’s a major fucking hottie. I’m a vampire but my teeth are straight and white. I have pale white skin. I’m also a witch, and I go to a magic school called Hogwarts in England where I’m in the seventh year (I’m seventeen). I’m a goth (in case you couldn’t tell) and I wear mostly black. I love Hot Topic and I buy all my clothes from there. For example today I was wearing a black corset with matching lace around it and a black leather miniskirt, pink fishnets and black combat boots. I was wearing black lipstick, white foundation, black eyeliner and red eye shadow. I was walking outside Hogwarts. It was snowing and raining so there was no sun, which I was very happy about. A lot of preps stared at me. I put up my middle finger at them.

I pulled up next to this truck at a stoplight in my Blue home state of Oregon and I can’t believe this white man put so much time and effort and money into creating this sign with not even one grammatically passable rage-filled sentence.

Tag yourself, I’m “sons and daughters of anarchist”.

I’m SO ANGRY about that blue/black or white/gold dress picture I keep seeing because, goddamn it, the first time I saw it, it was DEFINITELY white and gold, and every other time I’ve seen it, it’s been blue and black.

Like, I even went all the way back to the first place I had seen it to see if it was a different picture, AND IT CHANGED COLORS.

I HATE THAT DRESS.

anonymous asked:

non-white people can afford not to care about the policies implemented by Clinton and Obama that have destroyed the lives of certain americans, right? I don't understand why white blue-collar workers (most damaged by globalism and liberal policies) should care about the racist comments Trump made and vote for a candidate that would damage their lives even further. It's this kind of entitlement that got Trump elected. In fact, you know who else doesn't bloody care about them? Democrats.

1. There are plenty of non-white blue collar workers too. How are white blue collar workers most damaged by globalisation and liberal policies? How does their whiteness single them out for further victimisation? When a factory closes down, is it only white workers out of a job or everyone working there, no matter their race? Did you forget about these people too? This is exactly what I mean. This is a racially-exclusive class analysis that looks only to white blue collar workers and you’ve neglected how non-white blue collar workers can be hurt by the decline of manufacturing AND racism. It compounds their problems. Many non-white Americans for a long time have lagged behind white Americans in income. Black Americans in particular, due to the ongoing legacy of slavery and racism. Black working class people have to deal with both racism and economic problems. There is a huge problem of black unemployment in states like Michigan. It’s often several times the rate of white unemployment.  White blue collar workers, being white, don’t need to worry about institutional oppression because of their race. They have one less problem. Such white voters have problems because of their class, not their race. Don’t conflate the two together.

2.  You don’t think they should care? Are you saying basic empathy is not even possible? I mean, what are you saying then? If it’s fine for white voters to say “I know Trump’s saying racist shit and his policies sound pretty racist but he’s promised to bring back my job”, then why is it not fine for non-white voters to say “Trump’s saying racist shit so I’m not going to vote for him because that’ll be better for me, I have to prioritise my personal safety over whatever promises he made to bring back jobs.” I’m just applying your logic. And this is nothing less than a double standard against non-white voters. And economic policies obviously don’t have to be racist to address economic problems. They can help everyone.

3. But you know what usually has to be racist? Fascism. Fascism promises to make people feel good. It promises to restore national greatness, and promises to bring back prosperity. And it’ll often weaponise economic anxiety into a racist or ethnic direction against minorities. I live in Europe, so I would know. It’s a huge problem that these white voters, whether or not they voted for Obama before, either believed Trump’s crap or if they didn’t, thought it was something they could ignore. This is what happens when racism isn’t thoroughly rooted out a country. It comes roaring back with a vengeance whenever people are economically anxious and looking for a scapegoat. It’s what happened in Germany in the 1930s. Because Germany and all of Europe had antisemitism long before the Nazi party was even a concept. I am a SEAsian Chinese, and in the aftermath of the Asian Financial Crisis, there were riots against the Chinese minority in Indonesia. And, bingo- this wasn’t the first time. There has long been a history of such racial tensions. So don’t tell me the relationship between racism and economics is irrelevant, that it’s fine for one group of people to just ignore it.

4. I’ve no illusions about the Democratic Party, but I’m quite sure all this free trade economics and globalisation began long before Clinton and Obama and that Republican presidents encouraged and abetted it. It’s in fact the global economic order your country deliberately chose to construct in the aftermath of World War 2 when it wanted to remake the world in its image. That worked great when America had the most advanced manufacturing capacities, but less so when other countries started rapidly industrialising too and offering lower wages. The comparative advantage shifted there under the very rules of the game America itself wrote. And plenty of Republican presidents encouraged it too! Because American consumers like cheap goods and fits right in with the party’s ideology about minimal government intervention and laissez faire economics and about allowing the marketplace to be the solution. It was the Republican party that was against the economic stimulus in the wake of the recession, against the auto bailout, that was more concerned about destroying the ACA as a whole even though it originated as their own idea in the 1990s. It’s the Republican party that is always pushing most strongly for welfare cuts that hurt poor people, that fumed over letting the Bush tax cuts for the wealthy expire. The last Republican president drove the economy off the cliff and screwed us all over. A Republican congress held the debt ceiling hostage and didn’t care about sending foreign markets in turmoil just so they could destroy a healthcare law they didn’t like. In comparison, yeah, if I had to pick, the Democratic party has better economic solutions.

5. It’s not even like Trump has put forth logical policies that would help. I’ve read his plans. They don’t make sense or add up. They’re likely to make everyone worse off or at best just waste lots of money. Yet his rants about the “Wall” or slapping enormous tariffs on China are eaten up eagerly by many of his supporters because I guess it’s easier to think there’s a clear group of people who are to blame. It’s easier to blame Mexican immigrants than a complex mix of factors like free trade, poor protections for workers globally, corporations, mechanisation and automation and just the global economy restructuring itself. I wouldn’t find it awful that people voted for Trump if he’d actually said things that made sense or was promising economic policies that weren’t steeped in racist scapegoating. So yeah, you can say I’m quite indignant. Cos I don’t even think Trump’s policies will help those people who put their belief in him, and on top of that we have an ill-informed man at the helm of the world’s lone superpower. And I guess we can kiss goodbye to American cooperation on climate change. You don’t think its reasonable for the rest of us to be infuriated by all of this? Nothing else matters if we don’t even have a habitable planet!

6. You insist we’ve got to understand these white blue collar voters in a manner that’s just plain exclusive to how economic problems cuts across racial lines and that racism compounds it for poor non-white people. On a global scale, if you think white blue collar voters have been the most damaged by globalisation- that’s a truly Western-centric bubble to live in. I can write all of this, but it’s up to you whether you want to see the bigger picture. Not just about how race and class intersect, but about the many things under threat because of Trump’s presidency.

7. I’m going to repeat the fact that it’s ironic for an American to demand we understand these voters and accuse me of not caring as you did in your previous anon, when that favour is often not even returned when it comes to how American policies affect non-Americans. Don’t I have a right to do that too? NATO, the EU, US-China, US-SEAsia ties all are going to affect me. The ability of a number of American voters to not even think about how their president affects the world is a privilege that comes from being the citizen of a superpower. And I think it’s clear a number of Trump supporters didn’t. 

Fallen feathers {Angel & demon AU}(Lynne/Avereyeus)

Avereyeus wings flapped gently as his feet met the cold lush grass as he flipped the wings up. He stretched his first mission on the ground and he was excited the human or mortal world seemed so fascinating. He closed his wings and hide them from mortal sight. He looked down at his robes and he sighed as he changed into normal clothes. A white shirt and blue jeans as he got on his boots and looked at where he was. He wandered into the nearest town not even sure which planet he was on. He couldn’t go home and his mission was to find a way to save his home.

  • Me: I want to follow left-leaning Jewish blogs. Oh! These look -
  • Blog #1: Goyim are gross.
  • Blog #2: Witches are antisemitic.
  • Me: Wow. No. Okay, how about Jewish blogs that talk about social justice, like -
  • Blog #3: Scarves that are mostly white with lines of blue and black are cultural appropriation, even though most goyim don't even know what a tallit is.
  • Blog #4: White people are all evil antisemites, but if you ever point out that a POC is antisemitic, you're a disgusting racist.
  • Me: Uh. Maybe I'll stick to random blogs that promote actual equality -
  • Blog #5: All racism is bad.
  • Blog #6: Everyone should be treated fairly.
  • Blog #7: We should care about everyone.
  • Me: That's better, I like -
  • Blog #5: The Holocaust being a big deal to Jews is wrong, because other people were murdered, too. Jews are selfish to ignore everyone else.
  • Blog #6: Other people are criticising Islam, so you need to know that the Old Testament and everyone who follows it is barbaric. I can show you that by taking quotes out of context, ignore that Jews constantly question the text and have always struggled with it. The Qu'ran is much more peaceful, obviously, so don't take it out of context, because that promotes bigotry. Don't complain if you're Jewish, because I'm Christian and I'm clearly talking about Christianity.
  • Blog #7: I'm going to show how bigoted this person is by comparing what they're saying to how the Nazis treated Jews, and the politician I don't like is like Hitler. I never actually talk about antisemitism today, though.
  • Me: ...
  • Me: I - right. Okay, then. I'll just -
  • Me: ...
  • Me: Awesome.
