During his induction into the Pro Football Hall of Fame last night, Randy Moss, formerly a wide receiver for the Minnesota Vikings and New England Patriots, wore a tie with the names of African Americans who have been slain by police officers or vigilantes, in recent years, including Trayvon Martin, Tamir Rice, Eric Garner, and Alton Sterling. The powerful statement comes as the debate over peaceful protests by NFL players during the National Anthem continues, fueled primarily by President Donald Trump who falsely claims the kneeling is unpatriotic and anti-American, even though it is meant to speak out against the oppression within the American justice system against people of colour. “…There’s a lot of stuff going on in our country. And I just wanted to let these family members know they’re not alone.” - Randy Moss
📣📣 @staff the government is blocking tumblr in Indonesia. 📣📣
they cited pornography as the main reason, and said that tumblr has not given any reporting mechanism for porn contents, nor have they given the government proper responses.
now i know, bullshit, right? we have safe mode, we have reporting mechanism, etc. etc. we have more than enough to deal with porn, and yet the govt turns a blind eye on this and just blocked the whole goddamn website.
for @staff , please contact our government, and tell them that their reasoning is bullshit and people deserves to access tumblr. for my fellow indonesians, and frankly my friends in general;
please reblog. put it in twitter. facebook. signal boost. keep it up there, on the spotlight. make sure that the world–and also, th Indonesian government sees this.
if there is one thing i know about my government, is that it does not like bad international PR. canceling tumblr on a baseless reason is already shady in and of itself. so let’s make them reconsider, make them cancel their decisions, and let us have our access again.
