How can you know how big space is, stare out at space, see pictures of the beauty that’s out there, and be like “yeah there’s only two genders.”
history of entropy.
wait more stories so a big drinky party was thrown at my house so the next morning I was like hey I’ll be nice and make the leftover ppl some breakfast but I realised we didn’t have enough clean forks for everyone and were short by just one fork being the gracious host I am decide to be the one to go sans fork and grab a pair of chopsticks so someone sees me holding hopsticks making them some breakfast and stop me and say “do this” and flash the peace sign or whatever and strike that pose. you know. the Asian tourist pose. so I roll my eyes and put up two fingers. “no smile” small smile. “no bigger!!!” I contort my face into the most disturbing smile I can think of “ugh whatever I was just trying to have fun”
I walked into a coffe shop to order a mango smoothie and they had a huge chalkboard with “pun of the week” so when I got to the barista I ordered y drink and at the end was like oh hey I got a pun for you while I pointed at the board and he loved my pun so muc I got a free drink
Massachusetts State Police Issue Apology for “Racial Profiling Saves Lives” Bumper Sticker, But Not Before Lying About It
Massachusetts State Police issued an apology Monday for a bumper sticker on one of their police cruisers that read: “Racial Profiling Saves Lives,” but not before lying about it.
Boston resident Chris Kantos, was walking Sunday morning and came across on official police cruiser, number 1183, and noticed an odd bumper sticker on it.
Kantos tweeted this image out immediately.

Instead of apologizing immediately, Boston PD removed the sticker and published a second image of the cruiser with no bumper sticker. Then accused Kantos of photoshopping the image.

“Why on earth would I photoshop something like that?” Kantos asked on Twitter.
what the fuck
"Their investigation concluded that a vandal placed the sticker on the cruiser."
Do they even try anymore?
i drew a bunch of elves of color!!
This post reminds me of something that happened a few years back.
I once served as art director for a project where the illustration spec called for characters of a variety of races (in the real-world sense, not the Dungeons & Dragons sense - though the latter was involved as well).
We had one particular artist, tasked with drawing a series of elves, who didn’t quite seem to get what that meant. Their output was basically “white elf”, “another white elf”, “white elf with a tan”, “white elf looking a bit pale”, “yet another white elf”, etc.
When this was pointed out, they were like “oh, yeah, now I get it - I’ll totally fix that with my next piece”.
They proceeded to turn in a picture of a blue elf.
In the end, we had to provide specific quotas for specific levels of racial representation in order to get the point across. It all worked out in the end, but it’s stuck with me ever since that this artist examined the original spec, looked at our feedback, and came to the conclusion a blue elf was more plausible than a black one.
In conclusion: this is awesome.
Read that last paragraph as many times as you need to.
McDonald’s has been forced to open its first ever restaurant with a turquoise coloured sign after city planners said the signature yellow sign would be too garish. Officials in Sedona, Arizona told the fast-food giant they were unable to open a restaurant with the trademark yellow logo.This is due to the city’s strict regulations which prevent buildings from ruining the picturesque view of the desert.

Forty-six million white adults today can trace the origins of their family wealth to the Homestead Act of 1862. This bill gave away valuable acres of land for free to white families, but expressly precluded participation by Blacks.
"how do I have privilege?"
wonder whats the number of people who got them government subsidies to move out to the suburbs after ww2, subsidies which also excluded black people
