"Curing AIDS? Shit, that’s like Cadillac making a car that lasts for 50 years. And you know they can do it, but they ain’t going to do nothing that fucking dumb. Shit, they got metal on the Space Shuttle that can go around the Moon and withstand  temperatures of up to 20,000 degrees, you mean to tell me you don’t think they can make an El Dorado with a fuckin’ bumper that don’t fall off?"

- Chris Rock (“Bigger and Blacker”, 1999)

Yeah, just how there wasn’t any money in cures for polio, smallpox, etc. so we never cured or eradicated them.

Even if money was the main objective here, wouldn’t you want your pharmaceutical company to beat the others to the cure? You could not only claim that you cured one of the worst viruses to ever plague humankind, but you could put them out of business in the process.

But there are no illuminati or black helicopters in this scenario, so forget I said anything.

I, for one, want to see a Straight Pride parade just to see what would be in it. I imagine it looking like a traffic jam with flags.

Since when did “Donate” buttons become fixtures on peoples blogs? This isn’t your dreams where you get paid to reblog color-corrected pictures of hipsters doing stupid shit.

How could an inferior, ugly black boy be able to get a white girl and not me? I am beautiful, and I am half white myself. I am descended from British aristocracy. He is descended from slaves. I deserve it more.

UCSB shooter’s manifesto, who, although the son of a British father and Asian mother, identified only as white because he “looked normal”. His anger was fueled by ideas that as a white male, he was denied his birthright: meaning “beautiful blonde white women”.

In the last 20 years, all but one school shooting were committed by white men, to shed some light on why gun control is ignored in this country.

That last line is outright bullshit. One thing that I can’t stand, regardless of the topic, is the spread of misinformation.

At Penn State University in 1996, 19-year-old Jillian Spencer, who was trained in the Army Reserve as a sharpshooter, opened fire on random students. Latina Williams, a 23-year-old nursing student at Louisiana Technical Institute, killed two classmates in 2008. Finally, in 2010, Professor Amy Bishop shot six colleagues in the biology department at the University of Alabama.”

The article lists several cases of non-white-male shooters and concludes saying “This brief review has included 20 school shooters who were not white males (22, if Jason Hoffman and Robert Flores were of Latino descent). White male shooters may be more common than those who are neither white nor male, but we should not let this become a stereotype. For one thing, it is inaccurate and fails to take account of a significant percentage of school shooters. Most importantly, however, if we think that the only people who commit rampage attacks at schools are white males, we will be blind to those at risk of massive violence who do not fit the profile in our minds. And that could be tragic.”

I think the thing people don’t realize with that bullshit “well not all guys are dangerous, you should give them a chance” or what the fuck ever is like 

if i had a plate of cookies and i was like yeah, a few of them have laxatives in them and one’s got cyanide in there, BUT THEY’RE NOT ALL LIKE THAT

you’re probably not gonna take a fucking cookie

There is no need to mince words here; this is a fucking awful analogy. 

If you equate not profiling men with eating cyanide cookies, I feel sorry for you.

And if you look out the left window, you’ll see a prime example of the straw man fallacy.

I don’t even use this site anymore and I’ve unfollowed like a dozen people over this shooting thing.

Leeching off of a mass shooting to further your political opinion doesn’t make you some kind of activist - it makes you a fucking scumbag.

I’m on tumblr and I’m commenting about how I don’t care about the Superbowl like the special snowflake I am.

I’m running out of ways to express my disgust.
