"When a white teenager named Steve Lohner was stopped by the police last month and refused to show his ID after carrying a loaded shotgun on the streets of Aurora, Colorado (the same city where a mass murderer killed 12 people and injured 70 others in a packed movie theater in July 2012), the teen walked away with nothing but a citation. But when a 22-year-old black kid named John Crawford picked up a mere BB gun in a Walmart store in Dayton, Ohio last week, customers called the police, who then shot and killed him. Here lies a racial disparity that’s difficult for honest people to ignore. How can black people openly carry a real gun when we can’t even pick up a BB gun in a store without arousing suspicion? The answer in America is that the Second Amendment doesn’t really apply to black people."Keith Boykin: Does the Second Amendment Only Apply to White People? (via clambistro)

Ok but like… WHY THE FUCK WOULD THEY DO THAT

Clare is finally a senior, she’s supposed to be off to college. The poor girl has been sexually assaulted, cheated on, SURVIVED FUCKING CANCER, and now she’s pregnant with Eli/Drew’s bastard child right before her probable admission into Columbia. She’s had an endless amount of plot lines since season 8. They couldn’t have just left the poor girl alone?!?

"So I ask the American commentators, please stop announcing that Landon Donovan is the “all-time U.S. leading goal scorer.” He is not. With 57 international goals, he’s not even in the Top Five.

The all-time U.S. leading goal scorer is Abby Wambach, with 167 goals, followed by Mia Hamm (158), Kristine Lilly (130), Michelle Akers (105) and Tiffeny Milbrett (100). In fact, Abby Wambach is the all-time leading goal scorer in the world, among all soccer players, male or female."

Anonymous: um joe still has his parents?? they're on the outside of the dome same as linda's fiance

I’m aware of that. And that’s what I meant, Joe has no way of even contacting his parents and Angie was the only family he had on the inside.
