"Talking to White People about the Zimmerman Trial Bingo"
Aubrey, one of my amazing subscribers, dropped me a note this morning to say that the ridiculous comments on Kamu Bell’s and my Facebook page inspired this epic Zimmerman Trial Bingo card. After all the fuckery that’s been floating around the internet with regards to this sham of a verdict, I needed this laugh today. Thanks Aubrey!

When one if your best friends dies of murder and then a weekend like this happens and there is no choice but to wonder:
What if her killer went free?

“Some problems we share as women, some we do not. You [white women] fear your children will grow up to join the patriarchy and testify against you; we fear our children will be dragged from a car and shot down in the street, and you will turn your backs on the reasons they are dying.”
— Audre Lorde, “Age, Race, Class, and Sex: Women Redefining Difference” (via reesh)

I’m not sure why sadness is so often compared to waves.
I’d say it’s akin to sinkholes, whirlpools, and quicksand.

After we moved her into this #apartment, #birdie almost immediately became such a loving creature. She cuddles and takes care of me when i’m sick, when i’m sad, and when i’m unemployed! She’s been following me around all week and we srsly just got done with the biggest kissyfest ever. Love this girl <3
