Here's the Full Transcript Of Angela Davis's ~Fire~ Women's March Speech
"History cannot be deleted like web pages."

“At a challenging moment in our history, let us remind ourselves that we the hundreds of thousands, the millions of women, trans-people, men and youth who are here at the Women’s March, we represent the powerful forces of change that are determined to prevent the dying cultures of racism, hetero-patriarchy from rising again.

"We recognize that we are collective agents of history and that history cannot be deleted like web pages. We know that we gather this afternoon on indigenous land and we follow the lead of the first peoples who despite massive genocidal violence have never relinquished the struggle for land, water, culture, their people. We especially salute today the Standing Rock Sioux.

"The freedom struggles of black people that have shaped the very nature of this country’s history cannot be deleted with the sweep of a hand. We cannot be made to forget that black lives do matter. This is a country anchored in slavery and colonialism, which means for better or for worse the very history of the United States is a history of immigration and enslavement. Spreading xenophobia, hurling accusations of murder and rape and building walls will not erase history.

"No human being is illegal.

"The struggle to save the planet, to stop climate change, to guarantee the accessibility of water from the lands of the Standing Rock Sioux, to Flint, Michigan, to the West Bank and Gaza. The struggle to save our flora and fauna, to save the air—this is ground zero of the struggle for social justice.

"This is a women’s march and this women’s march represents the promise of feminism as against the pernicious powers of state violence. And inclusive and intersectional feminism that calls upon all of us to join the resistance to racism, to Islamophobia, to anti-Semitism, to misogyny, to capitalist exploitation.

"Yes, we salute the fight for 15. We dedicate ourselves to collective resistance. Resistance to the billionaire mortgage profiteers and gentrifiers. Resistance to the health care privateers. Resistance to the attacks on Muslims and on immigrants. Resistance to attacks on disabled people. Resistance to state violence perpetrated by the police and through the prison industrial complex. Resistance to institutional and intimate gender violence, especially against trans women of color.

"Women’s rights are human rights all over the planet and that is why we say freedom and justice for Palestine. We celebrate the impending release of Chelsea Manning. And Oscar López Rivera. But we also say free Leonard Peltier. Free Mumia Abu-Jamal. Free Assata Shakur.

"Over the next months and years we will be called upon to intensify our demands for social justice to become more militant in our defense of vulnerable populations. Those who still defend the supremacy of white male hetero-patriarchy had better watch out.

"The next 1,459 days of the Trump administration will be 1,459 days of resistance: Resistance on the ground, resistance in the classrooms, resistance on the job, resistance in our art and in our music.

"This is just the beginning and in the words of the inimitable Ella Baker, ‘We who believe in freedom cannot rest until it comes.’ Thank you.”

Mike Pence deserved what he got at the Hamilton performance

The Hamilton cast handled the situation extremely well, I think that should be stated first.

It was the audience that decided to boo him, and whether or not you agree with their decision doesn’t matter to me, as long as you understand that the cast is not at fault here.

Now, Pence has said horrible things about LGBT+ youth, people of color, women, muslims, and immigrants. So his decision to attend a show about an immigrant with a cast of color some of whom are also part of the LGBT+ community was his choice. What did he expect after the things he has said? If you hit someone, you can’t expect to not be hit back. And that is what happened at the performance. It was backlash for his vile statements.

I will never understand those who defend him. I will never understand those who respect him after the hurtful words he has spoken. But I respect the cast of Hamilton for the way they handled everything.

what if it’s actually Jungkook’s “youth” that passed?

he looks younger and more innocent here

maybe Jungkook saw his past self as someone who’s alone… but now, he has friends who’s beside him

like, even if his youth already passed, everything’s still alright because his friends are beside him, which means even if they grow old, or time passes, they will always be there.


what if it’s all about their youth?

D.VA: “No one’s beating my high scores!”

Genji: “I passed many an hour of my misspent youth here…”

Comic based on spawn quotes from the Hanamura map (offense team, where you spawn in the arcade)! This has been the most complicated comic so far!

I’m sure young Genji and and D.Va would have gotten along lol.

Who could the mysterious GN.G be…? (I bet it’s Hanzo…).

I post more art on twitter: https://twitter.com/njikeartist

Achilles is a mishmash of divinity and mortality; just erring enough to be extraordinary without being immortal; Helen likes the halo he carries, the posture: cocksure youth, the blade an extension of his body(here is a hunter, hunter, hunter).

Helen watches her divine cousin on the other side of the war, smiling with teeth from atop the walls of Troy. She remembers running with him under the Spartan sun, one long summer while men competed for her hand. He had been the only one who could keep up with Zeus’ blood in her veins.

Achilles had already hated Agamemnon, whispering conspiratorially with Helen behind columns: He’s not like us, his blood is just blood. Helen had, for the most part, tolerated her brother-in-law with the same flippancy she aimed at most men. They didn’t matter in the long run, she was a daughter of Zeus.

Helen knows men fear Achilles on the plains of Troy, they whisper his name reverently as if he was an envoy of Hades himself, Achilles can kill men on a battlefield but Helen? Helen can unite them; for or against, to kidnap or take her home. She commands wars with a smile and a tilt of her head.

And even Achilles — Achilles will fight, but he is but a general of Helen’s army, Patroclus by his side.
