Sunday Snippets: I'm tired

I'm tired of reading of another black person shot by police, another trans* person murdered, another woman ignored in death.

Fucking stop it, goddammit.

Fucked up

Why Protestors Turn Violent

When you saw "The Hunger Games," who did you root for? Katniss and her beleaguered community? Or people in the Capitol wearing pink eyelashes and obliviously eating until they vomited while the people in other districts starved? I'm going to assume the former because the movie makes it clear: The government is oppressing the people in District Twelve, and we are supposed to cheer for them as they attempt to overthrow a structure that is unfair to them.

Ok, next question: When you saw the protests in Baltimore, who did you feel for? Because if what you did was look down on the protestors for disturbing the peace, break out the rainbow wigs and sparkle mascara because you might be from the Capitol.

Huh, what a notion
