Michael Jackson’s writing on an Elvis figurine at Neverland:
"If I can only find a white man, with a black man’s sound, I could make a million dollars." - Sam Phillips, Sun Record
(Sam Phillips is responsible for launching Elvis’s career, and would famously tell people at his record label that before discovering Elvis)
Do people get how full of shade this is from Mike about the essential racism involved in Elvis’ career? He wanted to make sure people knew what the most important fact about his career was. I love it. And that’s why Mike never not once ever gave any credit to Elvis.
IT’S LIKE DAT THO MICHAEL?
I got him a new Adventure Time shirt and let him hang out with me today. I needed it. #Gabel #ours
I’m just a 14 year old white girl I’m not a terrorist
hope they got Starbucks in Maximum Security
It’s mindboggling that there are 14 year olds on tumblr who think, speak and have skills on par with adults.
We read about 14 year olds sitting university exams or making scientific discoveries no matter what country or class they live in.
And then you get 14 year olds like this.

The third map is really freaking me out. “Don’t have to be medically accurate.” WHAT.

Florida took so many L’s

LEST WE FORGET THE MOTHERFUCKER WHO STARTED THE ‘BOYS IN CROP TOPS’ MOVEMENT 28 YEARS AGO. ABOUT TIME!
This is horrifying hahaha. (Via @amberbenson)
So there’s this pretty dumb PolicyMic thing up right now showing “the lovely faces of our nation’s multiracial future.” The headlineNational Geographic Concludes What Americans Will Look Like in 2050, and It’s Beautifulis like the title of a term paper written by the Girl You Wish You Hadn’t Started a Conversation With At a Party. “It’s no secret that interracial relationships are trending upward, and in a matter of years we’ll have Tindered, OKCupid-ed and otherwise sexed ourselves into one giant amalgamated mega-race,” writes the author. Word? It is also no secret what else is always trending upward: "shareable" ideas that appear researched and progressive while actually eliding all of the underlying structural concerns that will always influence what race (and attendant opportunity) means in America far more than the distracting visual pleasure of a girl that looks like Rashida Jones.
Yes. I have been so uncomfortable with that picture and how it’s been reblogged as this inspirational thing. Mixed people are beautiful, but I don’t understand why our idea of utopia is a place where black and brownness doesn’t exist. Where everyone will be strikingly gorgeous because they have caramel skin, 3C blonde hair, and blue-green eyes. Let’s do better.
i just went from aw to wtf
Father left child in the car for 8 hours. He forgot that his kid was there. No arrest was made.
It’s so obvious.
Anyone else pissed off that this is the white parent of non-white kids, on top of every thing else?
there really needs to be a show called “NOW IF THAT HAD BEEN A BLACK PERSON”
The show should be called “NOW WHEN THAT HAD BEEN A BLACK PERSON” because there are no if’s about it. A black woman did the same thing to a much lesser extent for far nobler reasons and was punished unjustly.
But race doesn’t matter… or something. I’ve seen people say that “well, at least he was in a garage”. Get ALL the way the fuck out my face with that shit.
Woww and the mother who did this was going to a job interview.
