50-year anniversary of the 9/15/1963 murder of four African-American girls in the 16th Street Baptist Church bombing in Birmingham, Alabama.

Their names are Cynthia Wesley, Carole Robinson, Addie Mae Collins and Denise McNair.

Never forget that they killed young black women as well.

They should make it clear so guys can use it to! :3

I think a clear version of the nail polish is a brilliant idea. I want to clarify now that THE NAIL POLISH IS NOT FOR SALE YET. I read so on Undercover Colors Facebook Page: ”Thank you so much for the positive response and interest in Undercover Colors. We could not be more thrilled with the supportive feedback we’ve received so far! Many people are wondering where they can purchase Undercover Colors, and while we love the enthusiasm, we need to clarify a few items that may have been lost in all the media excitement of the past few days.
First of all, our product is not yet for sale. We are in the early development of our nail polish. One of our main priorities is to ensure that we develop a product that tests for a comprehensive set of drugs before we release it. Our proof-of-concept research has been very promising and we want to continue to build on this early success before we officially release a product in stores. Your continued support as we work through our research phase is not only appreciated, but crucial to our goal of developing the first effective deterrent to drug-facilitated sexual assault.Secondly, we are definitely considering a crowdsourcing campaign, like Kickstarter. Thank you for this suggestion. Our audience will be the first to know if and when this campaign launches.Lastly, we have been astounded and uplifted by your feedback. The support has been truly overwhelming! Unfortunately, we are a small company and we are not able to respond to every message individually. Please know that I have personally read each one, and I am blown away by your openness and kindness. We are committed to bringing this product to market in the quickest timeframe we can muster.If you would like to help us speed up the process, please consider supporting our research and development efforts. Right now our biggest need is in the research and development department. And while we have raised over $10,000 from personal donations which go directly towards R&D, more is needed for adequate and timely development. If you are interested in supporting this cause, please visit http://undercovercolors.com/undercover-colors—support-us.html. We have added a Paypal option here as well.We look forward to developing this great product as quickly as possible. Thank you again for your support and inspiration.All the best,Tyler Confrey-MaloneyCofounder and CEO”

This is a great comeback for all of that “I don’t see race.” BS

The nerve of white people claiming “reverse racism” when their people socially constructed race. 
"Reverse racism" is white supremacy backfiring on you. 
Also, the overrated white men you learn about in school all contributed to the social construct of race/white supremacy. 
Voltaire
Immanuel Kant
Arthur Schopenhauer (I used to like him due to his contributions to Philosophical Pessimism. Later on, found out that he was a racist misogynist)  
Robert Boyle 
Carl Linnaeus
Basically any prominent white man during the Age of Enlightenment and so forth.

Never Forget Them

Images from a candlelight vigil for Mike Brown in Boston, MA on August 22, 2014

Hence I have no mercy or compassion in me for a society that will crush people, and then penalize them for not being able to stand up under the weight. Malcolm X (via thotdreyhepburn)

are we really fucking real right now

mediamattersforamerica:

Bill O’Reilly “does not believe in white privilege,” saying it’s a “big lie that is keeping some African-Americans from reaching their full potential.”

Now back to reality:

  • One in 3 black men can expect to go to prison at some point. 
  • A black college student “has the same chances of getting a job as a white high school dropout.” 
  • Media cover 19.5% of cases with missing African American children, while 33.2% of missing children cases involve black kids. 
  • At least “4 million African-Americans and Latinos experience housing discrimination each year.” 
  • While black Americans make up 14% of monthly drug users, “they are 37% of the people arrested for drug offenses.” 
  • We could go on and on and on

Yes, this is the same multimillionaire who "exempt[ed]" himself from “that white privilege banner” because he used to “paint houses” and “cut lawns.”  

This expired jar of mayonnaise does not surprise anymore. I expected him to release nonsensical commentary on the Ferguson/Michael Brown case.
